The history of Tom Jones, a foundling by Henry Fielding( )

34 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 2,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows the fortunes of Tom, a foundling brought up by the kindly squire Allworthy. Despite a good and generous heart, Tom's naive inability to resist a pretty face leads to his downfall and he is banished from the Squire's house. But when the girl he really loves, Sophia, runs away to escape from her arranged marriage to his rival, the despicable Blifil, Tom pursues her to London, embarking on a series of riotous and frequently amorous adventures involving a wonderfully rich gallery of characters. Not so much a rake's progress as the exploits of an innocent abroad, it is a splendidly funny and often touching odyssey in which good ultimately triumphs over the corruption of human spirit
Oroonoko by Aphra Behn( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aphra Behn's Oroonoko, the story of an African prince's enslavement by British colonists and his journey from West Africa to the Caribbean, is the first literary work in English to portray the global interactions of that interlocking structure that came to be known as "the triangular trade." This edition features a generous selection of thematically organized historical materials that illuminate the three corners of the Atlantic triangle: West Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. Excerpts from contemporary literary works by Ben Jonson, John Dryden, Richard Steele, and Daniel Defoe enrich our understanding of the literary contexts for Behn's portrayal of "blackness" in Oroonoko, and selections from later dramatizations of Oroonoko demonstrate the evolution of British attitudes toward racial difference in the century following the publication of Behn's work."--Jacket
The Routledge research companion to law and humanities in nineteenth-century America by Nan Goodman( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nineteenth-century America witnessed some of the most important and fruitful areas of intersection between the law and humanities, as people began to realize that the law, formerly confined to courts and lawyers, might also find expression in a variety of ostensibly non-legal areas such as painting, poetry, fiction, and sculpture. Bringing together ... researchers from law schools and humanities departments, this companion touches on regulatory, statutory, and common law in nineteenth-century America and encompasses judges, lawyers, legislators, litigants, and the institutions they inhabited (courts, firms, prisons). It will serve as a reference for specific information on a variety of law- and humanities-related topics as well as a guide to understanding how the two disciplines developed in tandem in the long nineteenth century."--
The Oxford handbook of law and humanities by Simon Stern( )

9 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does materiality matter to legal scholarship? What can affect studies offer to legal scholars? What are the connections among visual studies, art history, and the knowledge and experience of law? What can the disciplines of book history, digital humanities, performance studies, disability studies, and post-colonial studies contribute to contemporary and historical understandings of law? These are only some of the important questions addressed in this wide-ranging collection of law and humanities scholarship.0Collecting 45 new essays by leading international scholars, The Oxford Handbook of Law and Humanities showcases the work of law and humanities across disciplines, addressing methods, concepts and themes, genres, and areas of the law. The essays explore under-researched domains such as comics, videos, police files, form contracts, and paratexts, and shed new light on traditional topics, such as free speech, intellectual property, international law, indigenous peoples, immigration,0evidence, and human rights. The Handbook provides an exciting new agenda for scholarship in law and humanities, and will be essential reading for anyone interested in the intersections of law and humanistic inquiry

The Valancourt book of Victorian Christmas ghost stories( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new collection of twenty ghostly tales of Yuletide terror, collected from rare Victorian periodicals. Seeking to capitalize on the success of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol (1843), Victorian newspapers and magazines frequently featured ghost stories at Christmas time, and reading them by candlelight or the fireside became an annual tradition, a tradition Valancourt Books is pleased to continue with our series of Victorian Christmas ghost stories. This third volume contains twenty tales, most of them never before reprinted. They represent a mix of the diverse styles and themes common to Victorian ghost fiction and include works by once-popular authors like Ellen Wood and Charlotte Riddell as well as contributions from anonymous or wholly forgotten writers. This volume also features a new introduction by Prof. Simon Stern"--Amazon.com
