Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë( Book )
62 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,418 libraries worldwide
Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë's only novel. It was first published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and a posthumous second edition was edited by her sister Charlotte. The name of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centers (as an adjective, Wuthering is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather). The narrative tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them. Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights met with mixed reviews by critics when it first appeared, mainly because of the narrative's stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty

A sentimental journey through France and Italy by Laurence Sterne( Book )
58 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in English and held by 1,124 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

Also included are such of the juvenilia that survive

Presenting poetry : composition, publication, reception : essays in honour of Ian Jack by Howard Erskine-Hill( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 300 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
