Roderick Random by T Smollett( )

47 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and held by 2,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roderick Random (1748), Smollett's first novel, is full of the dazzling vitality characteristics of all his work, as well as of his own life. Roderick is the boisterous and unprincipled hero who answers life's many misfortunes with a sledgehammer. Left penniless, he leaves his native Scotland for London and on the way meets Strap, and old schoolfellow. Together they undergo many adventures at the hands of scoundrels and rogues. Roderick qualifies as a surgeon's mate and is pressed as a common soldier on board the man-of-war Thunder. In a tale of romance as well as adventure, Roderick also finds time to fall in love... Smollett drew on his own experiences as a surgeon's mate in the navy for the memorable scenes on board ship, and the novel combines documentary realism with great humor and panache"--P. [4] of cover

Tobias Smollett, Scotland's first novelist : new essays in memory of Paul-Gabriel Boucé( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays on the writings of Tobias Smollett by eleven scholars from Canada, England, France, Ireland, and the United States takes a fresh look at issues raised not only in Smollett's novels, for which he is now usually remembered, but in works such as A Complete History of England and the Continuation of the Complete History, which made him the most popular historian of England in the mid-eighteenth century. Essays provide new insights into Smollett's writings, and suggest additional avenues for scholars to explore. The volume continues the reassessment of the writings of one of the major authors of the eighteenth century."--Jacket

The adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel ... The central character is a villainous dandy who cheats, swindles and philanders his way across Europe and England with little concern for the law or the welfare of others. The son of an equally disreputable mother, Smollett himself comments that "Fathom justifies the proverb, 'What's bred in the bone will never come out of the flesh'." Sir Walter Scott commented that the novel paints a "complete picture of human depravity."--Wikipedia.com

Christopher Anstey : "The New Bath Guide", 1766 : introduction critique, traduction et notes by Annick Cossic-Péricarpin( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CHRISTOPHER ANSTEY (1724-1805), THE NEW BATH GUIDE (1766): UN AUTEUR, UNE OEUVRE DU DIX-HUITIEME SIECLE CONNUS AUJOURD'HUI DE QUELQUES RARES INITIES. LA PREMIERE PARTIE DE CETTE THESE RETRACE LES GRANDES LIGNES DE LA VIE D'ANSTEY, "SQUIRE" DE TRUMPINGTON (ET ETUDIE EN PARTICULIER SES RAPPORTS AVEC LA VILLE D'EAUX DE BATH) EN ESSAYANT DE CERNER SA PERSONNALITE (ON Y RETROUVE LES TRAITS DU SANGUIN ET DE L'HONNETE HOMME), ANALYSE LE NEW BATH GUIDE ET REPLACE AUTEUR ET OEUVRE DANS L'HISTOIRE LITTERAIRE. LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE COMPOSE DE QUINZE LETTRES EN VERS ET D'UN EPILOGUE: LES EPISTOLIERS VENUS A BATH Y TROUVER LA GUERISON A DES MAUX PHYSIQUES EN REPARTENT RUINES ET MURS ALORS POUR UNE REGENERATION. DANS LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE TROUVENT REUNIS TROIS GENRES LITTERAIRES: SATIRIQUE, EPISTOLAIRE ET POETIQUE. LA STRATEGIE SATIRIQUE D'ANSTEY (EMPLOI DE L'"INDIRECTION" DU "MOCK-HEROIC" DE LA PARODIE, DE L'IRONIE ET D'AUTRES PROCEDES PUREMENT COMIQUES), SON UTILISATION DU GENRE EPISTOLAIRE ET DU GENRE POETIQUE (EN PARTICULIER L'EMPLOI DE L'ANAPESTE) SERONT ANALYSEES. LE BUT D'ANSTEY EST CELUI D'UN MORALISTE QUI VEUT DENONCER LES VICES DE SON TEMPS A TRAVERS UN TABLEAU DE LA VIE A BATH, LIEU SATIRIQUE PAR EXCELLENCE CAR ETANT A LA FOIS CENTRE DE CURE LIEU DE LOISIRS ET VILLE RELIGIEUSE ET SE VOULANT L'EXPRESSION D'UN IDEAL DIT DE "RUS IN URBE". UNE ETUDE COMPARATIVE DES DIFFERENTS POEMES D'ANSTEY PERMET DE CONCLURE A L'UNICITE DU NEW BATH GUIDE. A L'ECHELON NATIONAL, IL FAUT REPLACER ANSTEY DANS LA SATIRE POST-AUGUSTAINE ET DANS CETTE DERNIERE, PARMI LES HERITIERS D'HORACE ET NON DE JUVENAL. L'HERITAGE ANSTEYEN EST ENSUITE EVOQUE AINSI QUE LES RAISONS DE L'OUBLI DANS LEQUEL SOMBRERENT ET L'AUTEUR ET SON SEUL CHEF-D'OEUVRE QUI CONNUT AU DIX-HUITIEME SIECLE UN SUCCES CONSIDERABLE. LA DEUXIEME PARTIE DE LA THESE EST UNE TRADUCTION EN FRANCAIS DU TEXTE DE LA PREMIERE EDITION DE 1766. LA TROISIEME PARTIE EST UNE ANNOTATION DE CE TEXTE QUI PERMET DE COMPRENDRE L'ARRIERE-PLAN SOCIAL, ECONOMIQUE, CULTUREL, LITTERAIRE ET SCIENTIFIQUE DE L'OEUVRE
Tableaux de la vie rurale en Angleterre à l'ère de la révolution industrielle Mary Russell Mitford (1787-1855) : our village (1824-32) by Colette Beaumatin( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AS A PRE-VICTORIAN CHRONICLER OF COUNTRY LIFE IN BERKSHIRE, MISS MITFORD IS BOTH A REGIONAL AND A RURAL WRITER. HER WORK WAS INFLUENCED BY THE PASTORAL TRADITION OF IZAAK WALTON (1593-1683) AND BY THE PHILOSOPHY OF BENEVOLENCE OF ALEXANDER POPE (1688-1744) AND JAMES THOMSON (1700-48). OUR VILLAGE IS HOWEVER NOT ALTOGETHER IDYLLIC, WITH SOME DARK FORCES, VIOLENCE AND DEATHN ALREADY LURKING, AS OMENS OF THE NOVELS OF THOMAS HARDY (1840-1928). AND MISS MITFORD IS A FORERUNNER OF LATER RURAL WRITERS-RICHARD JEFFERIES (1848-87), FLORA THOMSON (1876-1947), ADRIAN BELL (1902- ). BATES (1906-74)--HO EXTOL THE VIRTUES OF (PAST) COUNTRY LIFE AND THE BEAUTIES OF VANISHING LANDSCAPES. MISS MITFORD'S PICTURESQUE BERKSHIRE SCENERY HAS BEEN COMPARED TO THE DUTCH PAINTINGS OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY FOR THEIR MINUTENESS, AND HAS MUCH IN COMMON WITH THE LANDSCAPES OF THOMAS GAINSBOROUGH (1727-88) AND OF ROMANTIC NATURAL PAINTERS SUCH AS JOHN CONSTABLE (1776-1837). MISS MITFORD IS ALSO A SOFT PRIMITIVIST AS SHE CELEBRATES LIFE IN A VILLAGE COMMUNITY. SHE WANTS TO RECONCILE COUNTRY AND TOWN IN THE AGE OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION. ANOTHER RECONCILIATION SHE ADVOCATES IS THE SOCIAL RECONCILIATION OF RICH AND POOR WHICH CHARLES DICKENS (1812-70) IN ENGLAND, BALZAC (1799-1850) AND GEORGE SAND (1804-76) IN FRANCE, WERE TO DREAM OF IN THE VICTORIAN AGE
Dévoilement et dérobade lecture de l'univers romanesque de Daniel Defoe, 1719-1724 by Elisabeth Soulier( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CE TRAVAIL PROPOSE UNE LECTURE DES SIX ROMANS DE DANIEL DEFOE (ROBINSON CRUSOE, 1719, MEMOIRS OF A CAVALIER, 1720, CAPTAIN SINGLETON, 1720 MOLL FLANDERS, 1722, COLONEL JACK, 1722, ROXANA, 1724). LA METHODE RETENUE EST UNE SEMIOTIQUE DU VOILE, DU DEVOILEMENT ET DE LA DEROBADE, MOUVEMENTS FONDATEURS DE L'OEUVRE. L'ETUDE S'APPUIE SUR L'ANALYSE DES RESEAUX D'IMAGES, ORGANISES AUTOUR DU VETEMENT, DE LA NUDITE ET DU DEGUISEMENT. LES QUESTIONS DE LA SURVIE, DE LA SEGREGATION, DE LA SEXUALITE SONT POSEES GRACE A L'INTERROGATION SUR CE QUI, AU SENS LARGE, VET L'HOMME. QU'EST CELUI-CI DANS UN ETAT DE NATURE, DE SOUFFRANCE ET DE VERITE TEL QU'IL EST EVOQUE PAR LES PROBLEMES LIES A CE QUI LE DENUDE? COMMENT SON IDENTITE ET SON ALIENATION SONT-ELLES DITES PAR UNE NARRATION QUI DEGUISE PLUS QU'ELLE NE REVELE? LA DIALECTIQUE DE LA DISSIMULATION DE LA CONFESSION ET DE LA DEROBADE EST A LA FOIS THEME ET PROCEDE : A CE DOUBLE TITRE, ELLE EST LA METAPHORE ORGANIQUE QUI SOUS-TEND L'OEUVRE ET LA METHODE RETENUE
