The Brontës and religion by Marianne Thormählen( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first full-length study of religion in the fiction of the Brontes. Drawing on extensive knowledge of the Anglican church in the nineteenth century, Marianne Thormahlen shows how the Brontes' familiarity with the contemporary debates on doctrinal, ethical and ecclesiastical issues informs their novels. The analyses of the novels clarify the constant interplay of human and Divine love in their development. While demonstrating that the Brontes' fiction usually reflects the basic tenets of Evangelical Anglicanism, the book emphasises the characteristic spiritual freedom and audacity of the Brontes."--Jacket
Rochester : the poems in context by Marianne Thormählen( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Wilmot, second earl of Rochester, is still commonly regarded as 'the wicked earl', and his reputation as a rake has imparted an air of dilettantism to his poetry. By contrast, Rochester: The Poems in Context emphasises the poet's sharp, restless intellect, a more powerful driving force in his poems than the sensual appetites stressed by previous critics. Marianne Thormahlen uncovers his familiarity with, and sly allusions to, events and leading characters in Restoration politics; his awareness of trends in science, theology and philosophy; his acute representations of contemporary mores; and his commitment to high standards in literary craftsmanship. As a result, a more complex picture of Rochester emerges - that of a serious artist who tackled major issues during a particularly turbulent period in English history
The Brontës and education by Marianne Thormählen( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All the seven Bronte novels are concerned with education in both senses, that of upbringing as well as that of learning. The Bronte sisters all worked as teachers before they became published novelists. In spite of the prevalence of education in the sisters' lives and fiction, however, this is the first full-length book on the subject. Marianne Thormahlen explores how their representations of fictional teachers and schools engage with the intense debates on education in the nineteenth century, drawing on a wealth of documentary evidence about educational theory and practice in the lifetime of the Brontes. This study offers much new information both about the Brontes and their books and about the most urgent issue in early-nineteenth-century British social politics: the education of the people, of all classes and both sexes."--Jacket
The Brontës in context by Marianne Thormählen( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Very few families produce one outstanding writer. The Brontë family produced three. The works of Charlotte, Emily and Anne remain immensely popular, and are increasingly being studied in relation to the surroundings and wider context that formed them. The forty-two new essays in this book tell 'the Brontë story' as it has never been told before, drawing on the latest research and the best available scholarship while offering new perspectives on the writings of the sisters. A section on Brontë criticism traces their reception to the present day. The works of the sisters are explored in the context of social, political and cultural developments in early-nineteenth-century Britain, with attention given to religion, education, art, print culture, agriculture, law and medicine. Crammed with information, The Brontës in Context shows how the Brontë fiction interacts with the spirit of the time, suggesting reasons for its enduring fascination"-

The Ladislaw case by Imke Thormählen( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Francis Courdroy is found dead of arsenic poisoning, his political rival Will Ladislaw is immediately the prime suspect. Courdroy had tried to blackmail him, and incriminating papers were found at the scene of the crime. Even if Will is innocent, he seems to be the key to the mystery. Will himself is convinced that someone is trying to harm him. The problem is that the only person he can think of who had any reason to wish him ill died years ago. The Ladislaw Case is a whodunnit as well as a gripping psychological drama involving the key characters of George Eliot's Middlemarch"--Page 4 of cover
