Living on paper : letters from Iris Murdoch 1934-1995 by Iris Murdoch( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iris Murdoch was an acclaimed novelist and groundbreaking philosopher whose life reflected her unconventional beliefs and values. But what has been missing from biographical accounts has been Murdoch's own voice--her life in her own words
Daphne du Maurier : writing, identity and the gothic imagination by Avril Horner( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daphne du Maurier: Writing, Identity and the Gothic Imagination is the first full-length evaluation of du Maurier's fiction and the first critical study of du Maurier as a Gothic writer. Horner and Zlosnik argue that the fears at the heart of du Maurier's Gothic fictions reflect both personal and broader cultural anxieties concerning sexual and social identity. Using the most recent work in Gothic and gender studies they enter the current debate on the nature of Female Gothic and raise questions about du Maurier's relationship to such a tradition
Gothic and the comic turn by Avril Horner( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gothic and the Comic Turn offers a fresh perspective on Gothic fiction, arguing that the value of the comic turn in Gothic texts has been largely overlooked. Gothic writing does indeed express the fragmentation of the modern subject but this expression is characterized by irony, scepticism, and the enjoyment of comic incongruity even as it engages with anguish, fear, isolation and alienation. Tracing an historical trajectory from the late Romantic period through to the late twentieth century, this book examines how varieties of comic parody and appropriation have interrogated the complexities of modern subjectivity. Writers examined include Maria Edgeworth, Eaton Stannard Barrett, E.T.A. Hoffmann, George Meredith, George du Maurier, Djuna Barnes, Evelyn Waugh, Stella Gibbons, Barbara Comyns, Muriel Spark, Iain Banks, Patrick McGrath, Fay Weldon and Angela Carter."--Jacket

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A splendid collection, innovative and enlightening.

Women and the gothic : an Edinburgh companion by Avril Horner( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of newly commissioned essays brings together major scholars in the field of Gothic studies in order to re-think the topic of 'Women and the Gothic'. The 14 chapters in this volume engage with debates about 'Female Gothic' from the 1970s and '80s, through second wave feminism, theorisations of gender and a long interrogation of the 'women' category as well as with the problematics of post-feminism, now itself being interrogated by a younger generation of women. The contributors explore Gothic works - from established classics to recent films and novels - from feminist and post-feminist perspectives. The result is a lively book that combines rigorous close readings with elegant use of theory in order to question some ingrained assumptions about women, the Gothic and identity. [page 4 of cover]

Le gothic : influences and appropriations in Europe and America by Avril Horner( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Gothic provides a valuable corrective to the idea that Gothic fiction is mainly an Anglo-American phenomenon. Charting numerous influences and appropriations that took place between Europe and America between the late eighteenth and the twentieth centuries, it shows how Gothic writing flourished by crossing national and linguistic boundaries. It traces the importance of revolutionary Paris in the evolution of Gothic and explores cross-Channel fertilisations and transatlantic exchanges in film and literature. Opening up new contexts, the contributors offer fresh perspectives on the work of Rousseau, de Sade, Charles Brockden Brown, James Hogg, Victor Hugo, Gaston Leroux, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Huysmans, Machen, T.S. Eliot, Henry James, Elizabeth Bowen, Pierrette Fleutiaux and Angela Carter, while considering Gothic writing in relation to Modernism and modernisation; the city; translation; gender; religion and postcolonialism."--Jacket
