Victorian psychology and British culture, 1850-1880 by Rick Rylance( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 381 libraries worldwide
"This book examines psychological theory as it appeared to the Victorians themselves, tracing the social and intellectual forces in play in its formation; it also relates these nineteenth-century ideas to twentieth-century developments in psychological investigation. Part One outlines the general debate. Part Two concentrates on three central figures: Alexander Bain, Herbert Spencer, and G.H. Lewes. It assesses their contributions in the context of the public debates which shaped their work. This is the first detailed study of the development of a mature body of complex interdisciplinary theory often neglected by modern commentators. It also provides one of the first thorough examinations of the work of G.H. Lewes, which has been greatly underestimated." "Distinctive features of this study include its cross-referral between work in different disciplines, and a series of analyses of the work of George Eliot, whose writing is saturated with ideas developed alongside those of the great psychologists who formed her circle."--Jacket
Sons and lovers by D. H Lawrence( Book )
16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 334 libraries worldwide
"This new collection of critical essays on Sons and Lovers brings together twelve modern responses to the novel from a variety of perspectives, including those informed by psychoanalysis, feminism and the study of literature and society. The Introduction situates these essays in the context of modern developments in critical theory and provides an overview of the critical debate on the novel. The volume provides a stimulating insight not only into Lawrence's novel, but also into the whole debate about the variety of contemporary critical approaches."--Jacket
Roland Barthes : a biography by Louis-Jean Calvet( Book )
15 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 297 libraries worldwide
This is the first biography of Roland Barthes - one of the most important European intellectuals of the postwar years. In a lively and engaging account of Barthes's life and work, Calvet follows the brilliant semiotician from his provincial origins to his sudden death in 1980. He describes Barthes's move to Paris as a child, where he lived with his mother in modest surroundings and constant hardship. He argues that the experience of having his academic prospects ruined by his illness at an early age remained a thorn in Barthes's flesh: until the end of his life his relationship with the academic world was never free of bitterness, even resentment. Calvet retraces his years in Paris, Bucharest and Alexandria after the war. During this period Barthes gained access to intellectual circles and experienced his decisive encounter with modern linguistics, particularly with "semiotics," which he helped to establish as a discipline through his work on everyday myths, fashion, and literature. Calvet discusses the whole range of Barthes's work as a critic and literary theorist, and demonstrates his tremendous importance and influence in the second half of the twentieth century. Thoughtful and sensitive, this book provides a detailed portrait of Barthes's life, and a vivid reconstruction of the intellectual culture of postwar France. It will be welcomed by student sand researchers in literature, cultural studies, French Studies, and by anyone interested in the life and work of Roland Barthes

Making your case : a practical guide to essay writing ( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 159 libraries worldwide
"Although the academic essay is central to individual achievement in Higher Education, it often seems to students to be an activity that goes on outside rather than inside seminar and tutorial rooms. Making Your Case: a Practical Guide to Essay Writing is a practical book designed to demystify the processes of academic writing through careful explanation and a series of engaging and practical exercises. The book offers a valuable opportunity for the reader to investigate and learn about the processes of academic writing and includes chapters on: collecting information; identifying an argument; designing a plan; and editing, proof-reading and referencing. Although it is rooted in the study of literary texts, the techniques explored and strategies offered apply to all courses and forms of writing which require a degree of argumentation and analysis."--Cover
