The fabulous matter of fact : the poetics of Neil M. Gunn by Richard Price( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twentieth-century novelist Neil M. Gunn is best remembered for his evocative accounts of Highland life as given in The Silver Darlings, Morning Tide and Highland River. In The Fabulous Matter of Fact, Richard Price goes beyond this starting point and provides the reader with both a comprehensive study of all Gunn's extant novels (including an early unpublished novel), and a detailed account of the literary context within which Gunn worked. Close textual criticism is enriched by references to Gunn's poetry, short stories, essays and letters, and many of his key sources and allusions are identified for the first time. Price explores Gunn's early literary relationship with the Celtic Twilight writers of the late nineteenth century, and his subsequent relation to the work of modernists such as Eliot and Proust, showing that Gunn was much more aware of literary movements than has been believed. Price also describes the historical context of the 1940s, focusing on Gunn's complex reaction to the war and his views on the nature of freedom, and he traces the extent, in Gunn's later novels, of his increasing interest in the limitations and loci of human compassion. Including useful plot summaries and a radical re-reading of the novels from the mid-1940s onwards, this is the most wide-ranging, approachable and informative guide to the work of Neil M. Gunn available
British poetry magazines, 1914-2000 : a history and bibliography of 'little magazines' by David Miller( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Documenting thousands of British poetry magazines from the last century, British Poetry Magazines 1914-2000 records the remarkable world of the 'little magazine': a world where now famous authors are first found as unknowns. Many go on to use the little magazine as a testing ground for their writing for the rest of their lives. Here is the work of T. S. Eliot, Robert, Graves, James Joyce, Laura Riding, Dylan Thomas, Samuel Beckett, Muriel Spark, Harold Pinter, Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes, Angela Carter, Irvine Welsh and many others. Although these magazines played a key part in the lives of so many British authors, they often had small print-runs and short lives: many are now extremely rare. This book lists the holdings of key libraries where the magazines can still be found. Each entry gives the editors involved, the dates of publication, and other information (such as documented interviews with editors, and details of any published index). Thousands of descriptions outline the magazines while short essays discuss the literary trends of the day in the context of these important periodicals. A name index identifies well over 5,000 authors and artists involved in the little magazine scene; a geographical index allows readers to locate the birthplaces of magazines across the British Isles."--BOOK JACKET
Lucky day by Richard Price( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucky Day begins with natural landscapes through which love and lyric flicker and flare. The sparrows, pigeons and magpies of the urban periphery lighten the atmosphere, edging the collection towards the city in the funny and elegiac 'Bird List'. The sequence that follows, 'Hand Held', is personal and vulnerable, a finally celebratory exploration of the author's experience as the father of a child with severe learning difficulties. The collection concludes with poems of love and memory, affirming in the end the luck of survival."--Jacket

Exploring the consequences of passion, this heartfelt work captures the exuberance?and struggle?of human love

6 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Patient' suffers a brain haemorrhage. Small World grows out of the days before and after. It has the authority of lived experience, beginning with what Price dubs?existential family poems': honed, lyrical, they explore the dynamics of modern life. Price's poems observe and reflect, revisiting and deepening the themes of his earlier books. These poems prepare us for the moment when the poet's lover,?the Patient', is afflicted. At times angry and despairing, the poems evoke hospital conditions and social attitudes to the ill, but the main focus is on the intricate reality of living
