Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë( Book )

7 editions published between 1940 and 1970 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic novel, written in the epistolary style popular in the 19th century, the tragic love story of Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw plays out against the backdrop of a gloomy manor called Wuthering Heights. Emily Bronte's masterpiece has gone on to become required reading among most high school students, yet the passionate individuals who populate Bronte's landscape and charge the book's atmosphere with their brooding, intense personalities - personalities which are commonplace in fiction now but repulsed readers and critics alike in Victorian times - have ensured the novel's popularity up to the present day on its own merits. - Amazon

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

5 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Story of passion and family conflict set in 19th century upper-class Russia, in which the wife of an aristocrat falls in love with a dashing cavalry officer. Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. States Leo Tolstoy in his great modern novel of an adulterous affair set against the backdrop of Moscow and St. Petersburg high society in the later half of the nineteenth century. A sophisticated woman who is respectably married to a government bureaucrat, Anna begins a passionate, all-consuming involvement with a rich army officer. Refusing to conduct a discreet affair, she scandalizes society by abandoning both her husband and her young son for Count Vronsky--with tragic consequences. Running parallel is the story of the courtship and marriage of Konstantin Levin (the melancholy nobleman who is Tolstoy's stand-in) and Princess Kitty Shcherbatsky

Memoirs of an infantry officer by Siegfried Sassoon( Book )

2 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A highly decorated English soldier and an acclaimed poet and novelist, Siegfried Sassoon won fame for his trilogy of fictionalized autobiographies that wonderfully capture the vanishing idylls of Edwardian England and the brutal realities of war. The second volume of Siegfried Sassoon's semiautobiographical George Sherston trilogy picks up shortly after Memoirs of a Fox-hunting Man: in 1916, with the young Sherston deep in the trenches of WWI. For his decoratged bravery, and also his harmful recklessness, he is soon sent to the Fourth Army School for officer training, then dispatched to Morlancourt, a raid, and on through the Somme. After being wounded by a bullet through the lung, he returns home to convalesce, where his questioning of the war and the British Military establishment leads him to write a public anti-war letter (verbatim the letter Sassoon wrote in 1917, entitled "Finished with the War: A Soldier's Declaration", which was eventually read in the British House of Commons). Through the help of close friend David Cromlech (based on Sassoon's friend Robert Graves) a medical board decides not to prosecute, but instead deem him to be mentally ill, suffering from shell-shock, and sends him to a hospital for treatment. Sassooon's stunning portrayal of a mind coming to terms with the brutal truths he has encountered in war - as well as his unsentimental, though often poetic, portrayal of class-defined life in England at wartime - is amongst the greatest books ever written about World War I, or war itself."--Book description, Amazon.com
