The ebb-tide : a trio and quartette by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

1 edition published in 1894 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is Tahiti in the 1890's and three men, an American sea captain, an English gentleman and a cockney thief, are 'on the beach'. Dispossessed and destitute, the 'trio' agree to sail a smallpox-infected ship loaded with champagne to Sydney, Australia, plotting to steal the cargo, scupper the vessel, and head for the 'Dangerous Archipelago'. Predictably, the thieves fall out. They lose their course and are driven towards an uncharted island which flies the red ensign. The owner of the island, also an English gentleman, has amassed a fortune in pearls. He is both a stern disciplinarian and a religious megalomaniac. As the protagonists in this 'quartette' begin to play out their parts, the plot moves to its dramatic, but ambiguous, conclusion. Stevenson's tale of exploitation in the South Seas recreates both the period and the place through a brilliant exploration of the moral corruption of colonisation
Walking with James Hogg : the Ettrick shepherd's journeys through Scotland by Bruce Gilkison( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Hogg, also known as the 'Ettrick Shepherd', was a writer, poet, sportsman, musician and larger-than-life personality. In 1802, uneducated and still unknown, he set out on the first of a series of journeys through Scotland, from the Borders to the Highlands and Hebrides. The journeys were inspiring, life-changing and often frightening. They led him to a life of chaos, failures, fame, fun and literary masterpieces. Now, a descendant follows his footsteps and reflects on his experiences, and on the remarkable rediscovery of Hogg's works a century after his death. It is a story of tenacity, of daring to be different and, against all odds, success and a flourishing legacy. It is a lively look at an extraordinary life and some of his works, including Confessions of a Justified Sinner, considered by many to be one of the greatest novels ever written. Bruce Gilkison, a New Zealander and a great-great-grandson of Hogg's, walked through Scotland to discover what was special about him and his journeys. Like Hogg, he had no idea where these travels might lead. He found a world of stunning landscapes, fairies and mystery, genius and ambiguity, friendships and back-stabbings, and learnt about his flawed, lovable and eccentric ancestor

Modernist cultures( )

in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernist Cultures seeks to open modernism up to new kinds of inquiry, new subjects, and new arguments, and to examine the interdisciplinary and international contexts of modernism and modernity. The journal is committed to innovative scholarship and to dialogue across international borders, and intended as a genuinely interdisciplinary space for the lively, polemical discussion of contemporary trends in the field, a discussion that will, we hope, represent a range of critical approaches and foster debate between scholars working within different intellectual traditions. Modernist Cultures invites essays from various fields of inquiry, including anthropology, art history, cultural studies, ethnography, film studies, history, literature, musicology, philosophy, sociology, urban studies, and visual culture, in an attempt to reanimate the discourses through which modernism's diverse cultures have hitherto been conceived."
