Edition: 1st ed.
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Not fiction
Publication details: switherland Knopf, [1995]
Dissertation note: The book that turned the gentle satirist of the Caribbean into a major literary figure, this is the story of a man who, without a single asset, enters a life devoid of opportunity; his tumble-down house becomes a potent symbol of the search for identity in a postcolonial world. His most widely read novel.

Barchester Towers / Anthony Trollope. by
  • Trollope, Anthony, 1815-1882
Series: Everyman's library ; 57
Edition: 1st ed
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction
Publication details: New York : Knopf : Distributed by Random House, 1992
Dissertation note: Anthony Trollope was well aware that the seemingly parochial power struggles that determine the action of Barchester Towers -- struggles whose comic possibilities he exploits to hilarious effect -- actually went to the heart of mid-Victorian English society, and had, in other times and other guises, led to civil war and constitutional upheaval. Thai awareness heightens the comedy and intensifies the drama in this magnificent novel and it transforms the story of a fight for ascendency among the clergy and dependants of a great English cathedral into something fundamental and universal.

Brideshead revisited / Evelyn Waugh ; with an introduction by Frank Kermode by
  • Waugh, Evelyn, 1903-1966
Series: Everyman's library ; 172
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction
Publication details: New York : A.A. Knopf : Distributed by Random House, c1993
Dissertation note: Evelyn Waugh’s most celebrated novel is a memory drama about the intense entanglement of the narrator, Charles Ryder, with a great Anglo-Catholic family. Written during World War II, the novel mourns the passing of the aristocratic world Waugh knew in his youth and vividly recalls the sensuous pleasures denied him by wartime austerities; in so doing it also provides a profound study of the conflict between the demands of religion and the desires of the flesh

Canterbury tales / Geoffrey Chaucer ; edited by A.C. Cawley ; with an introduction by Derek Pearsall. by
  • Chaucer, Geoffrey, -1400
  • Cawley, A. C. (Arthur C)
Series: Everyman's library ; 74
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Not fiction
Publication details: New York : Knopf : Distributed by Random House, c1992
Dissertation note: The precise, unerring, delicately emphatic characterizations for which The Canterbury Tales is so famous are no more extraordinary than Chaucer’s utter mastery of English rhythms and his effortless versification. Ranging from animal fables to miniature epics of courtly love and savagely hilarious comedies of sexual comeuppance, these stories told by pilgrims on the way to the shrine of Thomas à Becket in Canterbury reveal a teeming, vital fourteenth-century English society on the verge of its Renaissance.

Dubliners / James Joyce by
  • Joyce, James, 1882-1941
Series: Everyman's library ; 49
Edition: 1st ed.
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction
Publisher: New York : Knopf, 1991Distributor: Distributed by Random House
Dissertation note: Though James Joyce began these stories of Dublin life in 1904 when he was twenty-two and completed them in 1907, their unconventional themes and language led to repeated rejections by publishers and delayed publication until 1914. In the century since, his story “The Dead” has come to be seen as one of the most powerful evocations of human loss and longing that the English language possesses; all the other stories in Dubliners are as beautifully turned and as greatly admired. They remind us once again that James Joyce was not only modernism’s chief innovator but also one of its most intimate and poetic writers.

Emma / Jane Austen ; with an introduction by Marilyn Butler. by

Series: Everyman's library ; 36
Edition: 1st ed.
Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction
Publication details: New York : Knopf : Distributed by Random House, [1991]
Dissertation note: The most perfect of Jane Austen’s perfect novels begins with twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse comfortably dominating the social order in the village of Highbury, convinced that she has both the understanding and the right to manage other people’s lives–for their own good, of course. Her well-meant interfering centers on the aloof Jane Fairfax, the dangerously attractive Frank Churchill, the foolish if appealing Harriet Smith, and the ambitious young vicar Mr. Elton–and ends with her complacency shattered, her mind awakened to some of life’s more intractable dilemmas, and her happiness assured
