English fiction since 1984 : narrating a nation by Brian Finney ( Book )
11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Building on existing surveys of contemporary English fiction, this timely book focuses on key novels by eleven major English novelists who have broken in different ways from the realist British novel of the postwar period without losing their broad appeal among readers. These writers have reacted to the Thatcherite revolution that thrust Britain into the modern world of multinational capitalism by giving unusual fictional shape to the impact of global events and culture, and by experimenting with innovatory narrative modes and fictional techniques to represent the changing world in which they find themselves. This book should be of wide interest to students and instructors of contemporary British fiction."--BOOK JACKET
Selected short stories by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
18 editions published between 1982 and 2000 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seven of the best Lawrence stories, each turning on some facet of sexual feeling, attitude, or convention. "The Prussian Officer" focuses on an aristocratic captain's homoerotic obsession for his young orderly. "The Shadow in the Rose Garden" and "The White Stocking" deal with sexual jealousy. "Daughters of the Vicar" brilliantly describes two exceedingly class-conscious mating rituals. "The Christening," "Second Best" and "Odour of Chrysanthemums" etch memorable portraits of a family's shame at an illegitimate birth, a country courtship, and a brutish marriage abbreviated by death.

The woman who rode away, and other stories by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 160 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
