The Madwoman’s Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985
Germaine Greer,
ISBN: 0330301497
Picador, Great Britain, 1986. 
  Softcover. Good Condition/. . Always strong and fearless, Germaine Greer strikes right at the heart of the matter—be it John F. Kennedy and vaginal deodorants, rape and artificial insemination, cosmetic surgery, the death of Jimi Hendrix, or the famine in Ethiopia. This collection represents a mosaic of essays, long and short, some of which are appearing for the first time in print and all of which chafe the conventional and are bristling with argument. From the youthful liveliness of her sixties pieces, which “got up everybody’s nose,” to the depth and complexity of her later work, The Madwoman’s Underclothes is a reflection both of an era and of the changing ideas and styles of Germaine Greer: “The essays on Brazil, Cuba, and Ethiopia represent my coming of age. Something like a coherent system of values is beginning to emerge after my years of wandering, although I have certainly not arrived at a set of articles of faith, and never will, I hope.” Greer’s opinions on social, political, and sexual trends and mores are tendered in her unique fashion—outspoken, with rapier wit and no tolerance for narrow-mindedness. But as explosive, angry, and often funny as these essays are, they also reveal tenderness and sadness and that emotion that underlies all of Greer’s work—passionate commitment. 305 pages.

A Room of One’s Own
Virginia Woolf,
Penguin Books,  1945. 
  Softcover. Fair Condition/. . Penguin no. 481.A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy. Binding becoming loose on title page. 94 pages. Pages well browned. Cover has a few creases. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1.

These essays are about everyday life, and whatever learning they have they wear lightly. My intention is to interest and to amuse, and to have the reader while away an hour as gracefully as possible.

 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. Edition Unstated. Publisher Marketing: This is not a book of documents, snippets or worthy speeches.

There is the Frenchman who saw that Australia was a 'workingman's paradise', and the historian who explained why. The two reporters who realised the true significance of Gallipoli and conveyed it to the nation. Russel Ward on the Australian Legend, Robin Boyd on the Australian Ugliness, Donald Horne on the Lucky Country, W.E.H. Stanner on the Great Australian Silence and Anne Summers on Manzone Country. Real Matildas, Cultural Cringers, Future Eaters and Forgotten People - and much more. Memorably written and cohesive, this is the essential sourcebook of the words that made Australia.

At Large and At Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist
Anne Fadiman,
ISBN: 9780141033990
Penguin Books, Great Britain, 2008. 
 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. . In At Large and At Small, Anne Fadiman returns to one of her favorite genres, the familiar essay--a beloved and hallowed literary tradition recognized for both its intellectual breadth and its miniaturist focus on everyday experiences. With the combination of humor and erudition that has distinguished her as one of our finest essayists, Fadiman draws us into twelve of her personal obsessions: from her slightly sinister childhood enthusiasm for catching butterflies to her monumental crush on Charles Lamb, from her wistfulness for the days of letter-writing to the challenges and rewards of moving from the city to the country. Many of these essays were composed "under the influence" of the subject at hand. Fadiman ingests a shocking amount of ice cream and divulges her passion for Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip and her brother's homemade Liquid Nitrogen Kahlua Coffee (recipe included); she sustains a terrific caffeine buzz while recounting Balzac's coffee addiction; and she stays up till dawn to write about being a night owl, examining the rhythms of our circadian clocks and sharing such insomnia cures as her father's nocturnal word games and Lewis Carroll's mathematical puzzles. At Large and At Small is a brilliant and delightful collection of essays that harkens a revival of a long-cherished genre. 220 pages. Previous owners name on front blank endpaper.

The Task of the Critic
Eagleton, Terry & Beaumont, Matthew
ISBN: 9781844673391
Verso,  2009. First Edition
 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Good (ex-library)/. First Edition. 342 pages. Text and spine/cover marked with Library stamps, in all other respects in very good condition throughout. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Cover is protected in clear, self-adhesive laminate. The leading literary theorist is dissected in interview. This is an easily accessible guide to his views. Terry Eagleton occupies a unique position in the English-speaking world today. He is not only a productive literary theorist, but also a novelist and playwright. He remains a committed socialist deeply hostile to the zeitgeist. Over the last forty years his public interventions have enlivened an otherwise bland and conformist culture. His pen, as many colleagues in the academy - including Harold Bloom, Gayatri Spivak and Homi Bhabha - have learnt, is merciless and unsparing. As a critic Eagleton has not shied away from confronting the high priests of native conformity as highlighted by his coruscating polemic against Martin Amis on the issue of civil liberties and religion. This comprehensive volume of interviews covers both his life and the development of his thought and politics. Lively and insightful, they will appeal not only to those with an interest in Eagleton himself, but to all those interested in the evolution of radical politics, modernism, cultural theory, the history of ideas, sociology, semantic inquiry and the state of Marxist theory.

How Fiction Works
Wood, James
ISBN: 9780224079839

 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Edition. 194 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Dust jacket is unclipped. Pages are lightly tanned. In the tradition of E. M. Forster's "Aspects of the Novel" and Milan Kundera's "The Art of the Novel", "How Fiction Works" is a scintillating and searching study of the main elements of fiction, such as narrative, detail, characterization, dialogue, realism, and style. In his first full-length book of criticism, one of the most prominent critics of our time takes the machinery of story-telling apart to ask a series of fundamental questions: What do we mean when we say we 'know' a fictional character? What constitutes a 'telling' detail? When is a metaphor successful? Is realism realistic? Why do most endings of novels disappoint?Wood ranges widely, from Homer to Beatrix Potter, from the Bible to John Le Carre, and his book is both a study of the techniques of fiction-making and an alternative history of the novel. Playful and profound, it incisively sums up two decades of bold, often controversial, and now classic critical work, and will be enlightening to writers, readers, and anyone interested in what happens on the page.

English literature at the close of the Middle Ages – the Oxford history of English literature volume II part 2
Chambers, E. K. (Sir Edmund),
Oxford At the Clarendon Press, London, 1964. reprint
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. reprint. previous owners name on the first page, University bookshop sticker at the bottom of the front paced down, small tears at the top and bottom of the spine section of the dust jacket stop internally clean, and free of annotation. Editors' note – for two reasons, however, Sir Edmund Chambers's book departs from the usual principle in this series of allotting a volume or half-volume to a particular period. The one is that the story of the mediaeval drama and the story of the ballad are better told without strict attention to the boundaries of time; and the other is that the editors have wished to give the author the opportunity of writing once more on subjects which have interested him in the past – the mediaeval drama, the Carol and the 15th century Lyric, and Malory. While the contents are more miscellaneous than elsewhere in the series, he has been able to give the book the not inappropriate title, The Close of the Middle Ages.

 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. previous owners name at the top of the first page, top edge of the text block tinted dark blue, trivial handling marks to the cloth. No other damage to detail. This is a book of reviews of books, pictures, plays, broadcasts et cetera these pieces cover a term of time. Most of the works date from the 1930s. The pieces have, by the fact of being placed in relation to one another, acquired something not present when, severally, they were first written. Each of them carries the colour of its year, each reflects, involuntarily, what was in that year a contemporary mood of port or phase of feeling. They combine into something which is one of the many imponderable byproducts of history. – Page VI the author Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).

Patrick White’s Fiction
Walsh, William,

 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.

First Edition. 256 pages, includes list of books by Walter De La Mare, index, frontispiece photograph with facsimile signature, and facsimile of a page of manuscript of "memoirs of a midget". Original photographic illustrated dust jacket Is price clipped. There is age toning of the edges of the text block, and minor handling marks to the untrimmed front edge, original bookseller's sticker on the lower left-hand corner of the front free end page, bumping to the head and tail of the green cloth of spine section. 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.

 Softcover Softcover. Good/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 550 g.; XXX, 338 pages, includes bibliography and index, list of introductions, and introduction. Minor handling marks. "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.

Red Letter Days

Slight fading of the colour on the spine otherwise scratch that and rubbing of the tips of the fold overs. Otherwise in very good condition. This book is a candid personal and intensely human portrait of contemporary Australian writers but it is also given permanent value by being an eyewitness account of its times. Alan Marshall, Frank Hardy and Judah Waten, all significant and controversial, are written off by one who has been intimately associated with them. Red letter days is a revelation as to the nature of these three and their work. There are crisp observations and pen pictures of Mary Gilmore, Leslie Haylen, Gavin Casey and many others. For the first time the formation, activities and functioning of the Australasian Book Society are examined. Zhdanovism and socialist realism are discussed in another controversial chapter on the Communist Party and its personalities. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

The Pulse of Praise; form as a second self in the poetry of George Herbert

 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.
