Goodbye England
Barlow, James,

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.

This book suggests that the author gives each of his characters a particular imaginative horizon -- Primitive, Jewish, Christian, Classical -- and Michael Giffin suggests that the logic of each narrative depends upon the way in which these given horizons relate, or fail to relate, to each other. This approach provides a much-needed framework and terminology for accessing the perennially difficult area of White's spirituality. Size: Trade Paperback.

"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.

Tolkien’s World

ISBN: 0500011141
Thames & Hudson, London, 1974. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. Age toning of the page edges, and a slight loss of background colour of the spine of the dust wrapper. No annotations. Clean. The author, a professor of English at the University of California, analyses Tolkien's basic theme, which he sees as one particularly relevant to mid-20th-century life: that the ultimate task facing the hero of an unheroic stature is not to claim power but to renounce it, in the interest of a greater good.

Literary Theory at Work; Three Texts
Tallack, Douglas,
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.

First Edition. the front panel of the dust jacket has raped her on the top edge, and there is a similar sort through either side of the top edge of the rear panel. Very faint spotting of the top edge of the text. No other damage. The emphasis in critical charting of the history of the model has been on realism. The author explores another great tradition presenting 3 exponents as in some sense anti-realists, compassionately dedicated to evoking the deepest human reality. This shows that these novels are more akin too adventurous and modern novelists than to earlier classics – dust jacket blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 376 pages.

Essentials of Literary Criticism
Hobsbaum, Philip,
ISBN: 0500272859
Thames & Hudson, London, 1993. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. Critical essays are the basic mode of expression that students of literature at universities and colleges are expected to master, yet they are given no special instruction in this discipline. To make good the deficiency, Philip Hobsbaum demonstrates that there are techniques in writing criticism which can be both taught and learned. He himself learned his craft from such major figures as F.R. Leavis and William Empson, and has had many years' experience as a professional critic and a teacher of literature. After defining the uses of criticism, he provides invaluable guidance on such topics as what to say about a poem, English prose style and structuring an essay, in each case taking examples from the works of well-known authors. Here at last is the means of bridging the gap between the student as reader and the student as writer.– rear panel blurb. The book is clean and without annotation.

Virginia Woolf: The Major Novels
Batchelor, John,
ISBN: 0521311357
Cambridge University Press, Great Britain, 1991. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. Virginia Woolf (1882-941) is one of the most interesting writers of our century. In this introductory book, John Batchelor tells the story of her life and writing career, highlighting the important aspects of Woolf's temperament: her passion, her learning, her acute intelligence, her lesbianism, her self-absorption. He discusses the works, devoting separate chapters to the five major novels: Jacob's Room, with its highly ironic celebration of masculinity; Mrs Dalloway, with its odd time structures and pointed observation of 1920s London society; To the Lighthouse, which can be read as an elegy for Woolf's own family as well as a great work of modernism; The Waves, extending the narrative methods of its predecessors; and Between the Acts, Woolf's complex satire of the Condition-of-England novel. In addition, Professor Batchelor looks at Woolf's uneasy relation to modernism and the question of her feminism. This book, equipped with a chronology and guide to recommended further reading, is an ideal companion for students and new readers of Woolf. – rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
