The dust jacket, now protected, has insect damage to the rear fold over crease, and numerous short tears have been repaired with tape, and there is chipping to the top and bottom of the spine section, with a loss of approximately 3/16 of an inch at each end. "This book is a critical study, technical and textual, and also an interpretation. But interpretation is meant a kind of collaboration between the mind of the reader -- in this case the critic, a creative writer himself -- and that of his author. The plan of the book is to take the works in the order of their writing, and to trace the growth of this spiritual content as well as their form. Certain of them which seem peculiarly significant either in their manner or their matter have been examined in detail, and everywhere the aim has been to reveal what is latent in them as well as what is more directly expressed." -- front fold over blurb.

Goodbye England
Barlow, James,
Hamish Hamilton, London, 1969. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. 168 pages, original dustjacket. The dustjacket has 4 short tears on the rear panel. It is also rubbed on the edges. Otherwise both booked in dustjacket are in good order. The author went to Africa in search of material for one of his books. He also visited the United Nations, and Spain and then returned to London. His experiences during and immediately after these journeys filled Barlow with indignation. It seemed to him that events in those parts of Africa were being reported and judged unfairly, that public opinion was being successfully slumped by ill-informed the generally well-meaning " liberals" in England by deliberate misrepresentation at UN. The author was so upset by changes in England, that he emigrated to Tasmania! Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1.0.

Batsford Ltd, London, 1991. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. This collection of essays aims to provide a balanced conspectus on the field of literary theory by applying nine theories to the analysis of three texts: Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", Henry James' "In the Cage" and D. H. Lawrence's "St Mawr". This structure enables an interchange to take place between approaches drawn from all the main areas of recent critical theory: structuralism, post-structuralism, marxism, feminism and psychoanalysis. The book is addressed to all teachers and students who are interested in modern critical theory but want also to see how it can engage with a literary text. It is intended to bridge the gap which seems to have opened up between theory and practice, by explaining each theory and then showing its operation in a detailed reading of a text. – paraphrasing the rear panel.

The Tradition of Smollett

Illustrated with nine plates reproduced in black-and-white. Illustrated dust jacket. The only damage to the book is a slight rubbing of the edges of the dust jacket, and lifting of the protective laminate, over the front gutter. "This is the first full-length critical study of Smollett in the light of the tradition in which he wrote. It is concerned with the formal organisation of social criticism in fiction. The early chapters of the book deal with the picaresque writing in Spain, France and Germany and with English prose fiction of the 17th century. There is a criticism of the standards applied to criticism of the novel before 1750, thus enabling us to see the relevance of what Smollett was trying to do. His first three novels are examined and there is a specially detailed exegesis of Peregrine Pickle which makes a good case for much more care and a meditation in the structure of Smollett's novels than is usually considered. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

First published in 1953, this is evidently the first paperback reprint, a limited edition according to the rear panel blurb. "In this well known and widely respected text, Ronald S Crane makes his clearest and most comprehensive statement of his overall critical position. He outlines the fundamental Aristotelian, inductive methodology that underlies the critical approach of the "Chicago School" and makes a strong case for the superiority of this approach to the monastic and reductive schools of criticism which dominated much literary study through the first half of the century. Crane's pluralistic approach gives his work a breadth and range that extends back to the earliest statements of literary theory and forward to the most modern debates." -- Rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
