The vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The greatest object in the universe, says a certain philosopher, is a good man struggling with adversity." When Dr Primrose loses his fortune in a disastrous investment, his idyllic life in the country is shattered and he is forced to move with his wife and six children to an impoverished living on the estate of Squire Thornhill. Taking to the road in pursuit of his daughter, who has been seduced by the rakish Squire, the beleaguered Primrose becomes embroiled in a series of misadventures - encountering his long-lost son in a travelling theatre company and even spending time in a debtor's prison. Yet Primrose, though hampered by his unworldliness and pride, is sustained by his unwavering religious faith. In The Vicar of Wakefield, Goldsmith gently mocks many of the literary conventions of his day - from pastoral and romance to the picaresque - infusing his story of a hapless clergyman with warm humour and amiable social satire
English literature of the Middle Ages by Stephen Coote( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new guide covers seven hundred years of English literature. Stephen Coote describes the major figures and works of the period - Beowulf, King Alfred, Chaucer, Langland, Henryson, the Gawain-poet and Malory as well as lesser-known poets. Considerable attention is given to Chaucer and the extensive treatment of 'Troilus and Criseyde' demonstrates the range of concerns that can be brought to a medieval text. Chapters are devoted to alliterative poetry, popular romance, ballad and lyric, medieval drama and Middle English prose, set against a background of the European literary tradition and of medieval circumstances and ways of thought. The discussion of the development of the language from Old English to Middle English show how, through the genius of Chaucer, it took 'its plae beside the great literary vernaculars of Europe'. -- Book cover
Drake : the life and legend of an Elizabethan hero by Stephen Coote( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stephen Coote's re-evaluation of this self-made Elizabethan hero is a portrait of the man and his era. Vividly re-creating the key episodes in the construction of the Drake legend, from the West Indies voyages to the Nombre de Dios expedition, the Armada and, of course, the extraordinary circumnavigation, Coote shows how his reputation was made, challenged and finally manipulated for other ends in the centuries following his death."--Jacket
