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

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.

ISBN: 0713451408
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.

Traces of Foxing to the top edge uncut front and bottom edges, slight rubbing of the sides of the backstrip, and the lower corners of the boards. "In the following chapters an attempt is made to arrive at some understanding of what a very important poet was trying to do and why he was trying to do that and not something else, of the reasons why his poems have their particular form and character. Some such understanding is necessary to any critic, whether his aim be judgment, as with Johnson, or philosophy, as with Arnold; nor is it useless even to those who, like Hazlitt, look upon criticism as the expression of a personal mood. This implies historical study, and also the careful direction of that study." From the introduction page I Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Three Novels by Flaubert: A Study of Techniques

Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1970. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good/Good. First Edition. 700 g; X, 363, [3 blank] pages, includes bibliography, index. In original burgundy red dust jacket with gilt and white writing. Gilt titling to the spine of the book. Traces of foxing to the front and rear free end pages, and spotting to the top edge of the text block. Foxing to the verso of the dust jacket, and rubbing to each of the vertical creases of the jacket as well as to the flat surfaces of the front and rear panels. The book studies point of view in Flaubert's three major published novels. After a resume of Flaubert's explicit literary theories and a brief study, through Juvenilia, of his increasing awareness of how he could use point of view to imply his moral and philosophical position while remaining "impersonal", the main chapters examine the progress of refinement of techniques which culminated in the extremely subtle and original construction of L'Education Sentimentale. In this novel the interplay between reality and the individual's interpretation of it is presented in a way which involves the reader with author and character simultaneously. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

"Early in the summer of 1985, I sat down at a Tokyo hotel With Irokawa Budai, an award-winning writer to discuss narrative fiction and particularly the autobiographical form known as the shisho-setsu -- often miss translated (as I shall argue) as "I.-novel." We had hardly settled into our seats and taking in the view from the lobby when he blurted out, almost apologetically, " Shosetsu and shisho-setsu -- they are both very strange. You see, there is no God in the Japanese tradition, no monolithic ordering authority in narrative -- and that makes all the difference." Irokawa's words astonished me not only for the directness but also because they brought home to me a truism too easily ignored: that different cultures can breed very different kinds of narrative and that our purpose as readers outside the target culture ought to be to understand such narratives in terms of their inherent dynamics rather than of what they presumably "lack" from the western perspective." -- page IX Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

This book will attempt to follow the development of this branch of light reading matter from its beginnings in the 1850s, and to trace how the sentimental early Victorian romance has changed through 120 years to become a modern romantic novel of today, seeing how the hero, heroine, and subject matter have altered over the years, and how the motives and attitudes of the novels themselves have changed. -- from the introduction Page 14. .

You see, there is no God in the Japanese tradition, no monolithic ordering authority in narrative -- and that makes all the difference." Irokawa's words astonished me not only for the directness but also because they brought home to me a truism too easily ignored: that different cultures can breed very different kinds of narrative and that our purpose as readers outside the target culture ought to be to understand such narratives in terms of their inherent dynamics rather than of what they presumably "lack" from the western perspective." -- page IX Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

The Pulse of Praise: form as a second self in the poetry of George Herbert
Guernsey, Julia Carolyn,
ISBN: 0874136792
University of Delaware Press, Newark, 1999. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Good. First Edition. 600 g; 270 pages, indexed, bibliography, chapter notes. Illustrated dustjacket. The dust jacket is rubbed at the head and tail of the spine cover section, otherwise in very good order. Giulio Guernsey here addresses are Herbert's poetics from a psychohistorical perspective, demonstrating what close attention to prosody can contribute to critical discussions about self representation, self-Other relation, and self-transformation in the Temple. Although these issues lie at the heart of many historical and religious studies of The Temple, surprisingly few critics have approached subjectivity and intersubjectivity in Herbert from a cycle analytical perspective, and even fewer have emphasised what prosody contributes to Herbert's representations of self and the self-Other relationship. -- front wrapper blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

According to the back panel "it is this debate which Andrew Riemer seeks to place within a larger context than simply the scandal and controversy around the novel, its author and its public reception." Nice sentiments, when on page 3, the author writes "I remember thinking when I first read The Hand That Signed the Paper a year earlier that there must be deep and virulently vindictive pockets of Jew-hating among the Ukrainians -- they would see that as a natural part of their heritage. Nor are they alone in preserving in a timewarp ancient hatreds and enmities. What little I had seen of some expatriate Jewish communities in Australia suggested a suspicion of and hostility towards the despised goyim lived on in 20th-century Australia."

Patrick White’s Fiction

 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 200 g; VI, 138 pages, last two pages blank, includes chapter notes, bibliography, index. In original paperback binding, some curving of the binding. The author argues that Patrick White's books make up a cycle which suggests a strong and continuing creative power, and one which shows itself most vividly in his use of language. This bears the indelible stamp of the writer's personality and domination of his material to the extent of ignoring many common formalities of language and syntax and making frequent and prolonged use of metaphor to sustain and enrich the narrative. – Rear panel blurb The only damage to the book is a slight loss of colour on the spine section, and foxing of the inside of the front cover.
