Doris Lessing border crossings by Doris Lessing ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, Doris Lessing has received relatively little critical attention. One of the reasons for this is that Lessing has spent much of her lifetime and her long published writing career crossing both national and ideological borders. This essay collection reflects and explores the incredible variety of Lessing's border crossings and positions her writing in its various social and cultural contexts. Lessing crosses literal national borders in her life and work, but more controversial have been her crossings of genre borders into sci-fi and "space fiction"
The public and private worlds of Elizabeth I by Susan Watkins ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An intimate account of a remarkable national transformation: how Queen Elizabeth I set out to capture the hearts of her people. A brilliant picture of Queen Elizabeth I's life emerges here, beginning with her birth--her father Henry VIII had desired a male heir--punctuated by conspiracies, and endangered during the period of rule by her Catholic half-sister Mary, whom she succeeded in 1558. It gave her an enduring sense that to remain on the throne she must encourage the love of her people. In plays and pageants, in cameos, medallions, and portraits, and through the furnishings and gardens of the great country houses, the royal image was specifically tailored to evoke devotion. To love Elizabeth was to love England, and the Queen personified both an era and a national style. Watkins skillfully recreates court life in the palaces along the Thames, and in the nearly sixty royal houses that were Elizabeth's inheritance. An important part of the spectacle was the royal progress to the great country houses of her subjects. An Elizabethan house was not just an architectural achievement: it was often the literal embodiment of a relationship with the monarch. Throughout, Mark Fiennes' inspired photography, together with portraits, paintings, tapestries, and personal objects, give visual expression to the nation's evolving love affair with its queen. 157 illustrations, 154 in color

Twentieth-century women novelists : feminist theory into practice by Susan Watkins ( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This provocative, lively book discusses two of the most significant influences on writing and thinking in the twentieth century: women novelists and feminist theory. It demonstrates, in an accessible but imaginative manner, ways of reading women's novels alongside work by feminist theorists. Each chapter situates a number of theoretical texts in their intellectual context and then links them with a widely taught novel to produce fresh interpretations. Sections on 'theory into practice' and 'practice into theory' create dialogue between theory and novel and between text and reader."--BOOK JACKET
