Men and women writers of the 1930s : the dangerous flood of history by Jan Montefiore( Book )
17 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
Men and Women Writers of the 1930s is an original and important study of memory and gender in the literature of this tragic decade. Montefiore asks two principal questions: 'What part has memory played in the political literature of and about the 1930s?'and 'What were the roles of women, both as writers and as symbols, in constructing the literature?'. Montefiore's analysis of issues such as mass unemployment, fascism, the tensions in pre-war Yugoslavia and 'appeasement' is shockingly relevant to society today. Anti-fascist historical novels, the post-war memoirs of 'Auden generation' writers, travel writing and neglected women poets are discussed at length
The man who would be king : [selected stories of Rudyard Kipling] by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
This collection of Kipling's short stories follows the development of his work over fifty years, and range from the harsh, cruel, world of the "Indian" stories, through the "experimental modernism of his middle period, to the highly wrought subtleties of his later pieces."--Page 4 of cover
Arguments of heart and mind : selected essays 1977-2000 by Jan Montefiore( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 170 libraries worldwide
In the final section, 'Culture and feminist theory' the author examines the constructions of gendered identity in a variety of contexts: poetic ambiguity, girls' school stories and psychoanalytic debates." "Written with Montefiore's customary lucidity, elegance and wit, this book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in feminist literary studies, women's poetry and the problems of modern writing."--Jacket
In time's eye : essays on Rudyard Kipling by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 153 libraries worldwide
The theme of Kipling in history unites these rich, diverse treatments of Kipling's relationship to historical institutions of rule, of his work's subjection to time and change, and of his many-sided artistry. Challenging received opinion, breaking new ground in Kipling scholarship, and contributing substantially to the cultural history of Britain, these essays on Kipling's attitudes to the First World War, to the culture of Edwardian England, to homosexuality and to Jewishness bring together historical, literary critical and postcolonial approaches to this perennially controversial writer. The Introduction situates the book in the context of Kipling's changing reputation and of recent Kipling scholarship. After the perspectives of Chesterton (1905), Orwell (1942) and Jarrell (1960), newer contributions address Kipling's approach to the Boer war, his involvement with World War One, his Englishness and the politics of literary quotation. Different aspects of Kipling's relation to India are explored, including the 'Mutiny', Eastern religions, his Indian travel writings and his knowledge of 'the vernacular'. This collection, whose contributors include Hugh Brogan, Dan Jacobson, Daniel Karlin and Bryan Cheyette, is essential reading for academics and students of Kipling, Victorian and Edwardian English literature and cultural history. -- from back cover
Plain tales from the hills by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
"Plain Tales from the Hills, Rudyard Kipling's first collection of short stories, established his reputation and brought India to the British imagination ... Originally published for a newspaper in Lahore, when Kipling was a journalist, the tales were later revised by him to re-create as vividly as possible the sights and smells of India for readers at home."--Page 4 of cover
Rudyard Kipling by Jan Montefiore( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"Rudyard Kipling was a Victorian and an early modernist, a disciplinarian imperialist who sympathized with children and outlaws, a globe-trotter who mythologized 'Old England', and a world-famous author whom intellectuals despised. The central theme of this book is the way his work and its reception are both fissured and energized by these contradictions. This thorough study initially discusses Kipling's ambivalent knowing attitude to unknowable otherness, his rhetorical imitations of Indian and demotic vernaculars, his work ethic and ideal of imperialist masculinity, thus contextualizing the central discussion of his masterpiece Kim which, almost uniquely, takes Indian otherness as a source of pleasure, not anxiety. Jan Montefiore describes Kipling as a writer on the cusp of modernity, examining how his fiction and poetry engaged with radio, cinema and air travel, how his poetry anticipated and influenced the subversive uncertainties of modernism, and how his post-war contributions to the literature of mourning undermined their own overt traditionalism."--Jacket

The finest story in the world : and other stories by Rudyard Kipling( file )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Como su título preludia, este relato simboliza la búsqueda de la perfección, búsqueda eterna y sin retorno, que en opinión del autor inglés sólo puede surgir de la vida misma. No es éste, sin embargo, el único tema presente en el relato, ya que en él gravitan otros muchos que le dotan de consistencia y credibilidad: la reencarnación, la muerte, el viaje de aventuras, la amistad, el oficio de escritor… A lo largo de sus páginas, el lector va siendo introducido sutilmente en la necesidad de trascendencia del ser humano, ya sea en la sucesión infinita de vidas o a través de la inmortalidad de la creación y del arte.
