English fiction since 1984 : narrating a nation by Brian Finney( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 327 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."--Jacket

Selected short stories by D. H Lawrence( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in English and held by 5 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.
