Barchester Towers / Anthony Trollope.

by Trollope, Anthony, 1815-1882.

Series: Everyman's library ; 57Edition: 1st edMaterial type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction Publication details: New York : Knopf : Distributed by Random House, 1992Dissertation 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.

Dubliners / James Joyce

by Joyce, James, 1882-1941.

Series: Everyman's library ; 49Edition: 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.
