The age of innocence ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 1,849 libraries worldwide
In New York City in the 1870s, a rigid social code governs how people talk, walk, meet, part, dine, earn their livings, fall in love, and marry. Not a word of the code is written down anywhere, but these people have been studying it since they were born. In this elegant milieu, marriages, like treaties between nations, exist to provide for the orderly transmission of wealth; scions of old and rich families understand that their personal desires have no place in the design. One such is Newland Archer, engaged to marry pretty young May Welland. When he becomes entranced with May's cousin Ellen, the notorious Countess Olenska, every member of that class mobilizes to prevent Archer from doing anything that threatens their needs.
William Shakespeare's A Midsummer night's dream ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1,674 libraries worldwide
In the village of Monte Athena in Italy at the turn of the 19th century, necklines are high, parents are rigid, and marriage is seldom a matter of love. Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short.
