Shakespeare's tragedies : an introduction by Dieter Mehl ( Book )
22 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fox ; The captain's doll ; The ladybird by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 752 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 )
18 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 651 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

Shakespeare and the twentieth century : the selected proceedings of the International Shakespeare Association World Congress, Los Angeles, 1996 by International Shakespeare Association ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In close to fifty sessions, the congress theme - "Shakespeare and the Twentieth Century" - allowed for critical approaches from many directions: through twentieth-century theater history on almost every continent; through a range of media representations from film to databases; through the changing theoretical models of the period that extend to the latest politically inflected readings; and through appropriations of the play-texts by modern art forms such as recent fiction."--BOOK JACKET
