Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë ( )
55 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
I am Heathcliff - he's always, always in my mind ...' Discovered on the streets of Liverpool, Heathcliff is rescued by Mr Earnshaw and taken to the remote Yorkshire farmhouse of Wuthering Heights. Earnshaw's daughter Catherine rapidly forms a passionate attachment to him, but when Catherine's brother takes over the Heights, Heathcliff is lowered to the position of a barely-tolerated farmhand. When Catherine decides to marry the refined Edgar Linton instead, Heathcliff turns revenger. He determines to degrade not only those who sought to degrade him, but their children after them. Wuthering Heights is one of the most famous love stories in the English language. It is also, as the Introduction to this edition explores, one of the most potent revenge narratives. Its ingenious narrative structure, vivid evocation of landscape, and the extraordinary power of its depiction of love and hatred have given it a unique place in English literature. This edition reproduces the authoritative Clarendon text, with revised and expanded notes and a selection from the poems of Emily Bront--euml--

Presenting poetry : composition, publication, reception : essays in honour of Ian Jack ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The presentation of poetry to auditor and reader involves a complex interaction of rhetorical, orthographical and visual mediating skills. At issue are the nature of 'authority', the creation of a readership attuned to the writer's poetic resonances, and a delicate negotiation between literary tradition and individual talent. In a series of detailed readings leading scholars focus on the presentation of work by Spenser, Herbert, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Smart, Blake, Wordsworth, Browning, Newman, Yeats, Lawrence and David Jones. The wide chronological range enables unusually extensive comparison across the boundaries of generic form, and between the varying emotional, aesthetic and rhetorical emphases of specific periods: from the creation of fictitious personae to the construction of autobiographical 'self', from the interaction of printed word and visual image to the arrangements and rearrangements of structure and sequence
A sentimental journey and other writings by Laurence Sterne ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Celebrated in its own day as the progenitor of 'a school of sentimental writers', A Sentimental Journey (1768) has outlasted its many imitators because of the humour and mischievous eroticism that inform Mr. Yorick's travels. Setting out to journey to France and Italy he gets little further than Lyons but finds much to appreciate. A master of ambiguity and double entendre, Sterne is nevertheless concerned to explore the nature of virtue; unlike other writers of sentimental fiction, Sterne insists on the inseparability of desire and feeling." "This new edition includes a selection from The Sermons of Mr. Yorick, which sheds light on the concerns of the Journey, The Journal to Eliza, which records Sterne's feelings as he languishes for the company of Eliza Draper, and A Political Romance, the satire on a local ecclesiastical squabble that was the catalyst for Sterne's literary career."--Jacket
