Feminisms ( Book )
16 editions published between 1977 and 1998 in English and held by 575 libraries worldwide
"Spanning nearly two decades, from 1980 to 1996, this Reader investigates the debates which have best characterized feminist theory. Including such articles as Pornography and Fantasy, The Body and Cinema, Nature as Female, and A Manifesto for Cyborgs, the extracts examine thoughts on sexualtiy as a domain of exploration, the visual representation of women, what being a feminist means, and why feminists are increasingly involved in political struggles to negotiate the context and meaning of technological development. With writings by bell hooks, Alice Jardine, and Andrea Dworkin, this multicultural Reader reflects the dynamic nature of feminist debates and the genuine diversity within current feminist theory. Capturing the sense of the rapid movement within feminist theory and criticism, Feminisms is ideal for anyone interested in feminism and the history behind it."--Publisher description

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
Writings on writing by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 304 libraries worldwide
"Unlike his contemporaries Virginia Woolf and Henry James, Kipling always denied he was a critic. But his letters, speeches and stories are full of comments on writing and writers. This collection, including many previously unpublished private letters and papers, details Kipling's response to the commercialisation of literature and the emerging role of the writer as celebrity in the turbulent literary world of the 1890s and beyond. They reveal a mind intensely concerned with questions of literary value, with language and imagination, with truth, realism and romanticism. Kipling's fame made him a significant spokesperson for important segments of the reading public - the soldiers, engineers and functionaries central to Britain's imperial expansion. He profoundly influenced English literary language and our perception of English national character. This book offers new access to the private and public history of a writer whose continuing influence is still a matter of fierce controversy."--Jacket

To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf( Book )

Significant textual variants are included, along with notes and bibliography, making this an ideal edition for students of literary modernism and women's writing
Selected short stories by Virginia Woolf( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 162 libraries worldwide
Often overlooked by the prominence of her novels and diaries, these short stories underline Woolf's search for fresh ways of presenting the relationship between individual lives and the forces of society and history
Selected stories by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
8 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
Rudyard Kipling is undoubtedly among the great short story writers in the English language. This collection opens with "The Gate of the Hundred Sorrows," the first story Kipling published as a young journalist in India, and ends with an acknowledged masterpiece, "The Gardener," written 50 years later in the aftermath of the Great War. The stories of the intervening years show an extraordinary range of subject matter and technique. Above all, these stories reveal Kipling's ability to enter imaginatively into the minds of characters whose lives and values were radically different from his own--his willingness, as he himself once said, "to think in another man's skin."

Five children and it by E Nesbit( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
The five children find a cantankerous sand fairy or 'psammead' in a gravel pit. Every day 'It' will grant each of them a wish that lasts until sunset, often with disastrous consequences. Five Children and It was first published in 1902, and it has remained in print ever since. The Introduction to this edition examines Nesbit's life and her reading, showing how she was poised between the Victorian world and a new era in which children in literature were no longer mere projections of the adult viewpoint. Sandra Kemp examines how the narrative is structured around the acting out of literary fantasies, which always come down to earth. Nesbit combines wonderfully implausible events with the prosaic and familiar, and Kemp illuminates her exploration of the shifting relationship between imagination, literature, and life
Villette by Charlotte Brontë( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 61 libraries worldwide
With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, an initially suspicious headmaster, and her own complex feelings, first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor, Paul Emmanuel. Charlotte Brontë's last and most autobiographical novel is a powerfully moving study of isolation and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances
