Christmas, 1859. Just one month after the publication of On the Origin of Species, Darwin received a letter that deeply unsettled him. He had expected criticism.

The fabrication of the late-Victorian femme fatale : the kiss of death by Rebecca Stott( Book )
14 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
This book examines the rise of the femme fatale as a prominant fictional type in late nineteenth-century British culture. As a stereotype she has been 'fabricated', that is to say constructed as a 'figure in the carpet' of the fin-de-siècle. The book argues that Rider Haggard's <EM>She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed</EM>, Bram Stoker's female vampires and Conrad's destructive Malayan or African women, even Hardy's <EM>Tess</EM>, are all caught up in a series of late nineteenth-century contexts: biological determinism, imperialism, race, theories about female sexuality, degeneration and evolutionary theory

Making your case : a practical guide to essay writing ( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 154 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." --From cover
