The reception of D.H. Lawrence in Europe by Christa Jansohn ( )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The intellectual scope and cultural impact of British and Irish writers in Europe cannot be assessed without reference to their 'European' fortunes. This collection of essays, prepared by an international team of scholars, critics and translators, record how D.H. Lawrence's work has been received, translated and interpreted in most European countries with remarkable, though greatly varying, success. Among the topics discussed in this volume are questions arising from the personal and frequently controversial nature of much of Lawrence's writings and the various ways in which translators from across Europe coped with the specific problems that the often regional, but at the same time, cosmopolitan Lawrencean texts pose
The woman who rode away, and other stories by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The thirteen stories collected here were written between 1924 and 1928 and reflect Lawrence's experiences in New Mexico, Mexico, Italy, Germany and England during the post-war period. In 'The Woman Who Rode Away', a wife and mother leaves the safety of her Mexican home and rides into the mountains in search of a remote tribe of Indians and enlightenment. Each story reveals different aspects of Lawrence's remarkable storytelling powers, from the sensuousness of 'Sun' and the sardonic comedy of 'Two Blue Birds' and 'In Love', to the bleakness of 'None of That!' and the supernatural elements of 'Glad Ghosts', 'The Last Laugh' and 'The Border-Line'. This Penguin edition reproduces the newly established Cambridge text, which is based on Lawrence's manuscripts, typescripts and corrected proofs
Shakespeare's world/world Shakespeares the selected proceedings of the International Shakespeare Association World Congress, Brisbane, 2006 by International Shakespeare Association ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shakespeare's World/World Shakespeares was the theme of the Eighth World Shakespeare Congress held in Brisbane, Australia, in July 2006, where many of the world's major scholars examined how Shakespeare's plays and poems have shifted meaning and are understood differently as they endure across time and appear in different places, cultures, and forms. This collection, selected and revised from papers given at that conference, charts the extraordinary diversity and richness of Shakespeare studies today and offers new insights into the Bard's own times and through time to our own era." "Almost half of the twenty-nine chapters document the extraordinary rise of global Shakespeare as his characters and stories have been appropriated and retold in societies as various as Australia, Belgium, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Sudan, Egypt, and South Africa, on film as well as on stage, for children as well as adults."--Jacket

Old age and ageing in British and American culture and literature by Christa Jansohn ( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Old age and ageing is not simply a fixed biological or chronological process but a complex cultural and social phenomenon. The essays in this volume explore fiction and the arts as sources of information about how artists encounter age(ing) in different epochs and different social and cultural environments. The authors deal with questions of the ageing artist and his or her style, with specific gender problems and the representation of age in popular culture and film. The volume makes no claim to present a definitive analysis of age(ing) but rather attempts to show how fiction and the arts add a further dimension to our understanding of the quality of old age and ageing. The articles in this volume were first presented at a conference of the Centre for British Studies in May 2002 at the University of Bamberg
