A study in Greene Graham Greene and the art of the novel by Bernard Bergonzi( file )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,302 libraries worldwide
"In this critical study Bernard Bergonzi makes a close examination of the language and structure of Greene's novels, and traces the obsessive motifs that recur throughout his work. Most earlier criticism was written while Greene was still working, and was to some extent provisional, as the final shape of his oeuvre was not yet apparent. In this book Bergonzi is able to take a view of Greene's whole career and argues that the earlier work - combining melodrama, realism, and poetry - was Greene's best, with Brighton Rock, a moral fable that draws on crime fiction and Jacobean tragedy, as his masterpiece. The novels published after the 1950s were very professional examples of skilful story-telling but represented a decline from this high level of achievement. Bergonzi also challenges assumptions about the nature of Greene's debt to cinema, and attempts to clarify the complexities and contradictions of his religious ideas. Accessible and stimulating, this timely study will be of interest to all those who enjoy Greene's novels."--BOOK JACKET

This new survey of the writers of the wartime and postwar period reveals how literature in Britain was affected by the most devastating war in history, how it engaged with public events and private feelings during the fighting and throughout the long aftermath of recovery. Drawing on a rich variety of sources, Bernard Bergonzi discusses the work of such writers as Graham Greene, Elizabeth Bowen, Evelyn Waugh, and Joyce Cary, and the immense popularity of T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and other poets during the war years. He also provides a full examination of the new literary figures who emerged in the wake of the conflict, including Angus Wilson, Philip Larkin, Iris Murdoch, and William Golding

David Lodge by Bernard Bergonzi( Book )
10 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
"David Lodge is internationally celebrated as a novelist and critic, and most recently as a writer for television. This study examines his work from The Picturergoers (1960) to Therapy (1995). There are chapters on Lodge's early, mainly realistic, fiction; on his trilogy of campus novels, Changing Places, Small World and Nice Work; and on his interest, sometimes light-hearted, sometimes deeply serious, in Catholicism, notably in How Far Can You Go? and Paradise News. Lodge's practice as a novelist has been paralleled over the years by his work as a literary critic and theorist who is keenly interested in fictional form. There is an account of his critical writing, and the study concludes with an assessment of Lodge's achievement as a best-selling novelist with intellectual interests in criticism and religion, who has successfully brought together observant realism, metafictional consciousness and dazzling comedy."--Jacket

George Ponderovo's quiet young life is changed for ever when he is forced to leave home and is apprenticed to his dynamic Uncle Edward in his chemist's shop. Edward, determined to 'strike out', invents a bogus medicine called Tono-Bungay which earns him a vast fortune. George's share of the wealth enables him to live out his fantasies by building an aeroplane. As he witnesses the spectacular rise of the Tono-Bungay empire he contemplates a corrupt English society that allows his uncle to wield so much power. This is the only popular edition of the text to include Wells's final revisions. The notes explain his multi-layered allusions, and the Introduction places the novel in its literary and historical context
