A short history of French literature by Sarah Kay ( )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book traces the history of French literature from its beginnings to the present. Within its remarkably brief compass, it offers a wide-ranging, personal, and detailed account of major writers and movements. Developments in French literature are presented in an innovative way, not as an even sequence of literary events but as a series of stories told at varying pace and with different kinds of focus. Readers can thus take in the broad sweep of historical change, grasp the main characteristics of major periods, or enjoy a close appraisal of individual works and their contexts. The book is written in an accessible and non-technical style that will make it attractive to students and to all those who enjoy French Literature."--BOOK JACKET

Deronda, a high-minded young man searching for his path in life, finds himself drawn by a series of dramatic encounters into two contrasting worlds: the English country-house life of Gwendolen Harleth, a high-spirited beauty trapped in an oppressive marriage, and the very different lives of a poor Jewish girl, Mirah, and her family.

Thomas More's Utopia in early modern Europe : paratexts and contexts by Julian Burger ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thomas More's Utopia in Early Modern Europe provides the first complete account of all the editions of Utopia, whether vernacular or Latin, printed before 1650. The reception of the idea of Utopia in early modern Europe has been studied extensively before: what has been lacking is a composite picture of how Utopia moved by means of translation from culture to culture and of the ways in which particular versions offered themselves to their readers." "This book will be of interest to specialists in early modern cultural history and history of the book, to graduate students working in these fields, and to anyone for whom the extraordinary success of More's Utopia as a book published on the European market remains a perennial fascination."--BOOK JACKET

Retrospectives : essays in literature, poetics and cultural history by Terence Cave ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Terence Cave's work has made a major contribution to the rethinking of the relationship between literature, history and culture over the last half-century. Retrospectives brings together substantially revised versions of studies written since 1970: together they constitute a searching methodological investigation of the practice of reading past texts. How do our ways of reading such texts compare with those practised in the periods when they were written? How do we distinguish between what a text meant in its own time and what it has come to mean over time? And how might reading provide access to past experiences? The book's epicentre is early modern French culture, but it extends to that culture's ancient Greek and Roman models, its European contexts, and the afterlives of some of its themes, from Pascal via George Eliot to Angela Carter."--BOOK JACKET

3 editions published in 1996 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How to read Montaigne by Terence Cave ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Montaigne (1533-92) is commonly regarded as an early modern sceptic, standing at the threshold of a new secular way of thinking. He is also known for his groundbreaking exploration of the 'subject' or the 'self'. Terence Cave discusses these and other key aspects of the Essais not as philosophical themes but as features in the mapping of a mental landscape. Taking passages from many different chapters of the Essais, this book guides the the reader through Montaigne's investigation of the 'subtle shades and stirrings' of the mind
