In the final ten years of his life, Tony Tanner tackled the largest project any critic in English can take on, writing a preface to each of Shakespeare's plays. This collection serves as a comprehensive introduction for the general reader. Tanner brings Shakespeare to life, explicating everything from big-picture issues such as the implications of shifts in Elizabethan culture to close readings of Shakespeare's deployment of complex words in his plays.--[book jacket]

Moby-Dick[1] is an 1851 novel by Herman Melville. The story tells the adventures of the wandering sailor Ishmael and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab seeks one specific whale, Moby Dick, a white whale of tremendous size and ferocity. Comparatively few whaleships know of Moby Dick, and fewer yet have encountered him. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg. Ahab intends to take revenge. -- Wikipedia

Henry James and the art of nonfiction by Tony Tanner( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 435 libraries worldwide
"Finally, Tanner celebrates James as a writer of autobiography that will have nothing to do with chronology or conventional sequence. Tanner warns readers not to approach James's autobiography expecting fully scripted enactments of historically significant events. Rather they should be prepared to encounter, for example, an odd chin, an amazing eyeglass, or the words of a cross aunt. James "allows memory to browse and graze as it may, as it will," says Tanner. "The result, and effectively the last (and unfinished) piece of writing from this supreme artist, was an incomparable work of, apparently, supreme artlessness. There had never been anything quite like it.""--Jacket

Absorbing 1852 novel about love, idealism, and politics bristles with Hawthorne's perceptive wit and intelligence
