Leather-stocking redux, or, Old tales, new essays( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ten essays in this collection offer fresh and original insights into the five Leather-Stocking Tales: The Pioneers (1823), The Last of the Mohicans (1826), The Prairie (1827), The Pathfinder (1840), and The Deerslayer (1841). Treating the novels individually or commenting on the series as a whole, the contributors address such issues as race, gender, and ethnicity in Cooper's world and their relationship to ours, as well as scholarly responses to the politics and economics of the early Republic and discussions of the nature of American frontier society in the first half of the nineteenth century. --from publisher description

"I know . . . Through My Eyes and Ears" : Charles Dickens's artistic vision in Bleak House by Dorcas Yarn-Pooi Lam( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Despite using two different narrative voices to construct the story in Bleak House, Charles Dickens nevertheless ensures unity within the novel by creating a self-contained narrative painting. The various linguistic and visual details that Dickens includes in Bleak House work conjointly to advance his narrative goal as he employs recurring images and symbolic motifs in both his textual narrative and the accompanying illustrations to form a thread that connects different parts of the story. These details often compel readers to engage more intimately with the story that he tells by allowing them to visualize and participate in the rhythm of his narrative. Through his artistic creation, Dickens exercises his narrative authority over readers by subtly shaping their perception throughout the novel
