Tales of unrest by Joseph Conrad( )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The five stories brought together in Tales of Unrest (1898) mark a turning point in the writer's career. Conrad's first short story collection evidences a writer firmly in control of his new craft staking a claim to diverse cultural and fictional territories. The introduction situates the writing of these stories in Conrad's career and discusses their sources and contemporary reception. The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places, and indicate influences. Two maps and six illustrations enrich the explanatory matter. The essay on the text lays out the history of the work's composition and publication, details interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors, and explains editorial policy. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's stories and his preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far printed"--

Creatures that once were men by Maksim Gorky( )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If you strip off the mask of convention, lay aside the restraints which belong to the code of respectibility, and expose raw human nature with its barbarous proclivities and its flashes of inspiration, you have Maxim Gorky's "Creatures That Once Were Men". It is a name which these creatures themselves accept with cynical rejoicing; if they have ceased to be men, they have become brutes and gods, the brute presumably predominating because once they were men. Maxim Gorky has chosen for his subject the inmates of a doss-house that he may the more clearly show human nature untrammelled, as revealed in men, gross, vicious, foul-mouthed, hating authority, cut loose from the past, without hope for the future, seizing the brutal but conceivably brilliant present, and laughing to scorn every accepted dogma of society. By this means he throws into naked contrast the shams of civilization, supported on one side by a well-dressed, cheating, pertinacious merchant; on the other side by a cringing inn-keeper with the nature of a flunkey; on the other side by corporations, courts, and inspectors of police -- the machinery of society

A young girl's diary by Sigmund Freud( )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Between overseeing his private practice and developing an entirely new field of research and inquiry that would profoundly influence Western culture, Austrian psychiatrist Sigmund Freud somehow came across and helped to publish the diary of an anonymous young girl of the European upper classes. The detailed journal follows the young authoress from the age of 11 to the age of 14 1/2, through high school, schoolyard crushes, and the tumult of adolescence
