Best Russian short stories by Thomas Seltzer( Book )

59 editions published between 1917 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those who demand of fiction more than mere diversion turn inevitably to the works of the great Russian writers. In this volume the men who gave their country an unexcelled art and a redeeming conscience are represented by such short stories as no other nation has yet parallelled. Here are names to conjure with--Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gorky, Andreyev, Artzibashev, Kuprin, Bunin--writers of such compassion and profundity as to have changed the scope and meaning of the short story as a form of art and an expression of life. This volume contains twenty-two short stories by seventeen famous Russian writers

Kangaroo by D. H Lawrence( Book )

1 edition published in 1923 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kangaroo is D.H. Lawrence's eighth novel, set in Australia. He wrote the first draft in just forty-five days while living south of Sydney, in 1922, and revised in three months later in New Mexico. The descriptions of the country are among the most vivid and sympathetic ever penned, and the book fuses lightly disguised autobiography with an exploration of political ideas at an immensely personal level. His anxiety about the future of democracy, caught as it was in the turbulent cross currents of fascism and socialism, is only partly appeased by his vision of a new bond of comradeship between men based on their unique separateness. Lawrence's alter ego Richard Somers departs for America to continue his search. Based on a collation of the manuscript, typescripts and first editions, this text of Kangaroo is closest to what Lawrence would have expected to see in print. There is a full Textual apparatus of variants, a comprehensive Introduction giving the background and history of composition and publication and a summary of contemporary reviewers' opinions. Explanatory notes elucidate the many geographical, political and literary allusions in the text; there are three maps and an appendix detailing the Australian locations. --Publisher

Psychoanalysis and the unconscious, and Fantasia of the unconscious by D. H Lawrence( Book )

1 edition published in 1921 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in Lawrence's most productive period, Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious (1921) and Fantasia of the Unconscious (1922) were undertaken initially in response to psychoanalytic criticism of his novel Sons and Lovers. They soon developed more generally to propose an alternative to what Lawrence perceived as the Freudian psychoanalytic theory of the unconscious and the incest motive. In doing so the essays also develop his ideas about the upbringing and education of children, about marriage, and about social and even political action. They were written with an American audience in mind, as Lawrence believed that his future as a writer lay there rather than in post-war Europe. He himself described them as 'this pseudo-philosophy of mine which was deduced from the novels and poems, not the reverse. The absolute need one has for some sort of satisfactory mental attitude towards oneself and things in general makes one try to abstract some definite conclusions from one's experiences as a writer and as a man.' These conclusions form an illuminating guide to his works and therein lies their peculiar value." "This edition of Fantasia of the Unconscious, based on Lawrence's final corrected typescript, removes errors and misprints of previous editions and, more importantly, restores passages which his first publisher removed."--Jacket

Living in tropical exile under assumed names, the couple produced a son and endured a grueling series of hardships and failures that would provide Evelyn Scott with the raw material for a singular work of fictionalized autobiography.
