This critical compendium surveys the whole of Joyce's work, from his early writings as a student in Dublin to the labyrinths of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. It shows how Joyce grew beyond his early artistic revolt against middle-class Ireland to become a great comic writer, who even at his most experimental never ceased to draw his inspiration from the common life of ordinary men and women.--Adapted from publisher description

Authors and authority : English and American criticism, 1750-1990 by Patrick Parrinder( Book )
22 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 450 libraries worldwide
"Authors and Authority" is a one-volume history of Anglo-American literary criticism from the neoclassical period up until recent trends in modern literary theory, feminist criticism and cultural history. Focussing on the work of major critics such as Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Arnold, Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Leavis, Frye and Lionel Trilling, Parrinder traces the connections between authorship and critical authority, and between literary debate and the changing forms of culture and society. Surveying the development that leads from the creative manifestos of the Romantic poets to the current interpretative theories of stucturalism, deconstruction and new historicism, the author asks whether there is a future for a distinctively literary criticism, and whether the gulf between creator and critic can be healed. -- Back cover

The whirlpool by George Gissing( Book )
21 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and held by 353 libraries worldwide
'Marriage rarely means happiness, either for man or woman; if it be not too grievous to be borne, one must thank the fates and take courage'. The greatest of English realist novelists, famous for New Grub Street, George Gissing creates in The Whirlpool an astonish picture of characters caught in the vortex of London, struggling to understand how they can make sense of their lives in a society of remorseless faithlessness and social snobbery. A whole era is magnificently brought to life in all its glamour and squalor - and at the book's heart lies one of the most remarkable figures in English literature: Alma Rolfe, torn between an idyll of rural domesticity and her career in London as a musician

A troubled insomniac in 1890s England falls suddenly into a sleep-like trance, from which he does not awake for over two hundred years. During his centuries of slumber, however, investments are made that make him the richest and most powerful man on Earth. But when he comes out of his trance he is horrified to discover that the money accumulated in his name is being used to maintain a hierarchal society in which most are poor, and more than a third of all people are enslaved. Oppressed and uneducated, the masses cling desperately to one dream that the sleeper will awake, and lead them all to freedom
A modern utopia by H. G Wells( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
"While walking in the Swiss Alps, two English travellers fall into a space-warp, and suddenly find themselves in another world. In many ways the same as our own - even down to the characters that inhabit it - this new planet is still somehow radically different, for the two walkers are now upon a Utopian Earth controlled by a single World Government. Here, as they soon learn, all share a common language, there is sexual, economic and racial equality, and society is ruled by socialist ideals enforced by an austere, voluntary elite: the 'Samurai'. But what will the Utopians make of these new visitors from a less perfect world?"--Back cover

"When penniless businessman Mr Bedford retreats to the Kent coast to write a play, he meets by chance the brilliant Dr Cavor, an absent-minded scientist on the brink of developing a material that blocks gravity. Cavor soon succeeds in his experiments, only to tell a stunned Bedford the invention makes possible one of the oldest dreams of humanity: a journey to the moon. With Bedford motivated by money and Cavor by the desire for knowledge, the two embark on the expedition. But neither are prepared for what they find - a world of freezing nights, boiling days and sinister alien life, on which they may be trapped forever."--Jacket

This collection of essays by scholarly experts shows the varied and dramatic nature of Wells's reception, including translations, critical appraisals, novels and films on Wellsian themes, and responses to his own well-publicized visits to Russia and elsewhere.
