The white devil by John Webster( Book )

36 editions published between 1966 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on historical events that occurred in Italy during the 1580s, this dark Jacobean drama is considered one of the finest of the period. The White Devil centers on the love affair between the Duke of Brachiano and Vittoria Corombona, two of the play's many unscrupulous characters. Despite her role as a vicious heroine, Vittoria elicits sympathy in her attempt to endure a deeply corrupt society. In The White Devil both evil and good characters are drawn into schemes involving political intrigue, adulterous desire, and bloody revenge. Criticized for its plot construction, the play is noted for its characterizations and use of dramatic tension and physical horror

The old curiosity shop : with the original illustrations by Charles Dickens( )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: A bestseller that gripped the nation when it was first published, The Old Curiosity Shop is a novel of sharp contrasts: of life and death, youth and age, desire and innocence, humour and villainy. For the character of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, Dickens drew on a tragedy in his own life, the death at the age of seventeen of his sister-in-law Mary Hogarth. Five years later he wrote, 'the desire to be buried next her is as strong upon me now ... and I know (for I don't think there ever was love like that I bear her) that it will never diminish.' The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters -- the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the 'Marchioness'; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law, and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity
The devil's law-case by John Webster( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The old curiosity shop by Boz( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Old Curiosity Shop was expanded from a short tale to save Dickens's failing periodical Master Humphrey's Clock (1840-1); it is the first of his novels of which the complete manuscript, many corrected proofs, and some working notes survive. This makes it uniquely interesting to both the textual critic and general reader. Forster's Life of Dickens played down the novelist's dependence on his friend's help, but the proofs reveal at first hand the nature ofForster's assistance as well as Dickens's own practice. In conjunction with the manuscript, which contains two previously unprinted notes t

Blogging Betty(s) : how bloggers used the anniversary of the Feminine Mystique to discuss feminism by Elizabeth M Brennan( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper examines how and why bloggers use blogs as a forum to discuss, debate, circulate, and promote feminism through examination of blog coverage on The Feminine Mystique's 50th anniversary in 2013. Through both semi-constructed interviews with bloggers and textual analysis of the participant's blog posts on feminism, I explore why bloggers choose blogs to host discussions around feminism as well as how they articulate the relationship between second-wave and contemporary feminism. I locate five themes consistent across the data set, three that address feelings towards using blogs to discuss feminism and two that address feelings towards contemporary and second-wave feminism. These include: blogs facilitate conversations about feminism, blogs build communities, blogs bring visibility to feminism, there is currently a lack of solidarity in the contemporary movement, and, despite the former statement, there is optimism surrounding the future of the feminist movement. Additionally, I draw comparisons between today's bloggers and Betty Friedan in terms of their use of media. I conclude by suggesting how feminists may use these findings for creating safer online spaces where productive discussions about feminism can occur
