The woman who did by Grant Allen( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
"The controversial subject matter of Grant Allen's novel, The Woman Who Did, made it a major bestseller in 1895. It tells the story of Herminia Barton, a university-educated New Woman who, because of her belief that marriage oppresses women, refuses to marry her lover even though she shares his bed and bears his child. Her ideals come into disastrous conflict with intensely patriarchal late Victorian England. Indeed, Allen intended his novel to shock readers into a serious exploration of some of the major issues in fin de siecle sexual politics, issues that he himself, in various periodical articles under the rubric of the "Woman Question," had played a leading role in opening up to public debate." "This Broadview edition contains a critical introduction as well as a rich selection of appendices which include excerpts from Allen's writings on women, sex, and marriage; contemporary writings on the "Sex Problem"; documents pertaining to the Marriage Debate; contemporary responses to the novel and excerpts from two parodies of the novel."--Jacket

The call of the wild by Jack London( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
"A best-seller from its first publication in 1903, The Call of the Wild tells the story of Buck, a big mongrel dog who is shipped from his comfortable life in California to Alaska, where he must adapt to the harsh life of a sled dog during the Klondike Gold Rush. The narrative recounts Buck's brutal obedience training, his struggle to meet the demands of human masters, and his rise to the position of lead sled dog as a result of his superior physical and mental qualities. Finally, Buck is free to respond to the "call" of the wilderness. Over a hundred years after its publication, Jack London's "dog story" retains the enduring appeal of a classic. This Broadview Edition includes a critical introduction that explores London's life and legacy and the complex scientific and psychological ideas drawn upon by London in writing the story. The appendices include material on the Klondike, Darwin's writings on dogs, other contemporary writings on instinct and atavism, and maps of the regions in which the story takes place."--Page 4 of cover

Emily Dickinson's Spectrum: An Analysis of the Significance of Colour Imagery in the Poems and Letters by Nicholas Ruddick( file )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
<p> The implication of the title of this thesis, Emily Dickinson's Spectrum, is that this poet had a highly individual attitude towards colour, an attitude which the analysis of colour-imagery in the poet's writings will illuminate. The first chapter of the thesis demonstrates how the poet's scientific background enabled her to set up a spectrum that differed from the "received" Newtonian spectrum in many ways. The second chapter shows how Dickinson's originality, a quality often noticed by critics, is to a large extent the product of her ability to manipulate the colours of her spectrum in a manner analogous to the practice of the pictorial artist. The third chapter explains, however, that though her use of colour was indeed original, her practice reflects the international anti-Newtonian "colour-revolution" of the era in which she lived, a revolution in which she had a significant role to play notwithstanding her apparent seclusion in Amherst. In the final chapter, Emily Dickinson's spectrum is set out, and each of its chief colours is shown to be a concise means of referring to a different complex or node of emotions that are at once personal and universal in their import.</p>
The Imagery of Sylvia Plath by Nicholas Ruddick( file )
1 edition published in 1975 in Undetermined and held by 0 libraries worldwide
<p>The thesis consists of six chapters. Chapter I, the Introduction, examines critical approaches that have been made towards the poetry of Sylvia Plath and tries to show their limitations & Chapter II discusses the essentially allusive nature of the poetry and proposes a different method -- extensive analysis of the imagery - whereby a greater understanding of what the poet is trying to communicate may be obtained. Each of the next three chapters examines, in a roughly chronological way, a particular group of recurring symbols and images. Attention is paid to the body of as yet uncollected poetry and, where appropriate, the prose works are mentioned, Chapter VI, the Conclusion, summarises the implications of the analysis, and provides an example of the insights that may be made into the meaning of some of the apparently impenetrable obscurities that face the reader of Plath's poetry. Implicitly throughout, the view, is adhered to that the poetry itself rather than the poet is of the greater importance.</p>
