Shakespeare's tragedies : an introduction by Dieter Mehl( Book )

33 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces the students and the general reader to Shakespeare's tragedies and to the problems of interpreting them. Traditional questions and answers regarding the texts, as well as their realization in performance, are examined, and it is shown how the plays do not offer easy of final solutions to the tragic dilemmas presented, but engage the reader and spectator in a debate with more than one possible outcome. Each of the tragedies is examined separately, with discussions of its provenance, its stage history and critical history, and of the problems associated with its categorization as part of the 'tragic' genre. He refers widely to a representative body of Shakespearian criticism, and provides a useful bibliography which indicates the best sources for a reader wishing to pursue individual themes further. The book is carefully written and should serve as a valuable introduction for anyone wanting to gain a sense of the richness of the plays and the diversity of debate and interpretation that has surrounded them

The fox ; The captain's doll ; The ladybird by D. H Lawrence( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D.H. Lawrence wrote these three 'novelettes' between November 1920 and December 1921; they were enthusiastically received by his English publisher and his readers. The ending of the first version of 'The Fox', written in December 1918, is given in an appendix; Lawrence added a 'long tail' two years later, expanding the story to about three times its original length. 'The Ladybird' also started out as a short story, but was completely rewritten; two manuscript pages omitted by the typist are here included for the first time. The characters and the setting of 'The Captain's Doll' arose out of Lawrence's visit to Austria in summer 1920. Professor Dieter Mehl gives all three composition histories, including Lawrence's wish to have them published together, problems with typists and in publication. There is also an appendix on the models for the two main characters and the setting of 'The Fox'. Explanatory notes elucidate allusions and give significant deleted manuscript material, and the Textual apparatus presents the collations of all relevant states of the texts

The woman who rode away, and other stories by D. H Lawrence( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteen stories collected here were written between 1924 and 1928 and reflect Lawrence's experiences in New Mexico, Mexico, Italy, Germany and England during the post-war period. In 'The Woman Who Rode Away', a wife and mother leaves the safety of her Mexican home and rides into the mountains in search of a remote tribe of Indians and enlightenment. Each story reveals different aspects of Lawrence's remarkable storytelling powers, from the sensuousness of 'Sun' and the sardonic comedy of 'Two Blue Birds' and 'In Love', to the bleakness of 'None of That!' and the supernatural elements of 'Glad Ghosts', 'The Last Laugh' and 'The Border-Line'. This Penguin edition reproduces the newly established Cambridge text, which is based on Lawrence's manuscripts, typescripts and corrected proofs

English literature in the age of Chaucer by Dieter Mehl( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

/* LB739, 0-582-49299-8, Mehl, Dieter, English Literature in the Age of Chaucer */ English Literature in the Age of Chaucer presents a thorough survey of one of the most exciting and creative periods in English literature, centering around its most original and influential literary representative, Geoffrey Chaucer. In addition to detailed and sensitive treatment of Chaucer's major works, the book includes chapters on his chief contemporaries, such as John Gower, William Langland and the Gawain-poet. It also examines the often underrated contribution to the English literary tradition of his successors John Lydgate and Thomas Hoccleve, as well as the interesting and original work of the Scottish poets, Robert Henryson, William Dunbar and Gavin Douglas, who also claim Chaucer as their model. Apart from the narrative poetry of Chaucer and his followers, English Literature in the Age of Chaucer also contains chapters on the Middle English lyric; Middle English prose, including Mandeville's travels; the most original and imaginative writings of the Middle English mystics, in particular Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe; and Thomas Malory's impressive prose compilation of Arthurian stories. Written in an engaging and accessible manner, English Literature in the Age of Chaucer serves as both a lucid introduction to Middle English literature and as a stimulating examination of the themes, traditions and the literary achievement of a number of particulary original and interesting authors. For readers interested in early English literature
