THE COUNTRY HOUSE, Galsworthy, John
44 Galsworthy, John THE COUNTRY HOUSE
Sutton Pub Ltd 1992 0862993520 / 9780862993528 Paperback Very Good 
A tight clean softcover, no markings throughout: John Galsworthy OM (1867-1933) was an English novelist and playwright. He is viewed as one of the first writers of the Edwardian era; challenging in his works some of the ideals of society depicted in the preceeding literature of Victorian England. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1932. Notable works include The Forsyte Saga (1906-1921) and its sequels, A Modern Comedy and End of the Chapter. From the Four Winds was Galsworthy's first published work in 1897, a collection of short stories. These, and several subsequent works, were published under the pen name John Sinjohn and it would not be until The Island Pharisees (1904) that he would begin publishing under his own name. His first play, The Silver Box (1906) became a success, and he followed it up with The Man of Property (1906), the first in the Forsyte trilogy. Along with other writers of the time such as Shaw his plays addressed the class system and social issues, two of the best known being Strife (1909) and The Skin Game (1920).

46 Gaskell, Elizabeth RUTH
Oxford University Press, USA 1985 0192816691 / 9780192816696 Paperback Very Good 
The conflict between Elizabeth Gaskell's sympathetic understanding and the strictures of Victorian morality resulted in a mixed reception for her this social novel. It offered an alternative to the seduced girl's traditional progress to prostitution and an early grave. The story studies the sensitive portrayal of relationships within small towns and an exploration of seduction and illegitimacy within a small Dissenting community where tolerance and rigid morality clash.

NEW GRUB STREET, Gissing, George
47 Gissing, George NEW GRUB STREET
Oxford University Press 1993 0192829637 / 9780192829634 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. New Grub Street (1891), George Gissing's most highly regarded novel, is the story of men and women forced to make their living by writing. Their daily lives and broken dreams, made and marred by the rigors of urban life and the demands of the fledgling mass communications industry, are presented with vivid realism and unsentimental sympathy. Its telling juxtaposition of the writing careers of the clever and malicious Jaspar Milvain and the honest and struggling Edward Reardon quickly made New Grub Street into a classic work of late Victorian fiction.

53 James, Henry PRINCESS CASAMASSIMA
Everyman's Library 1991 0679406727 / 9780679406723 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. When Henry James chose to, as he did in The Princess Casamassima, he could write about the political turbulence of his era with astonishing excitement and directness. The London underworld of terrorist conspiracies that entan gles his hero comes alive under his pen with a violence that seems, more th an a century later, only too familiar. Young bookbinder Hyacinth Robinson, the illegitimate son of a nobleman and a woman who died in prison after murdering him, has been raised by an impoverished seamstress. Hyacinth has grown up sensitive both to the beauty of the world and to the human suffering caused by social injustice, and when he is drawn into a circle of radicals he promises to commit an act of terror--a vow he comes to regret when the lovely and bored Princess Casamassima takes him under her wing. As Hyacinth travels across Europe and encounters a richly varied cast of characters from all levels of society, he is increasingly racked by his agonizing dilemma--until he resolves it in a shocking action that carries the emotional force of classical tragedy.

Signet Classics 1995 0451526066 / 9780451526069 Paperback Very Good 
''This enigmatic, chilling, classic ghost story is especially well told in semivoiced narrations.'' -- SoundCommentary.com ''More than a horrific ghost story, The Turn of the Screw is an enigmatic and disturbing psychological novel that probes the source of terror in neuroses and moral degradation . . . The Turn of the Screw will continue to fascinate and to intrigue because James' 'cold artistic calculation' has so filled it with suggestiveness and intentional ambiguity that it may be read at different levels and with new revelations at each successive reading.'' --Masterpieces of World Literature

THE WINGS OF THE DOVE, James, Henry
56 James, Henry THE WINGS OF THE DOVE
Penguin Classics 1986 0140432639 / 9780140432633 Paperback Very Good 
Of the three late masterpieces that crown the extraordinary literary achiev ement of Henry James, The Wings of the Dove (1902) is at once the most pers onal and the most elemental. James drew on the memory of a beloved cousin w ho died young to create one of the three central characters, Milly Theale, an heiress with a short time to live and a passion for experiencing life to its fullest. To the creation of the other two, Merton Densher and the magn ificent, predatory Kate Croy, who conspire in an act of deceit and betrayal , he brought a lifetime's distilled wisdom about the frailty of the human s oul when it is trapped in the depths of need and desire. And he brought to the drama that unites these three characters, in the drawing rooms of Londo n and on the storm-lit piazzas of Venice, a starkness and classical purity almost unprecedented in his work. Under its brilliant, coruscating surfaces , beyond the scrim of its marvelous rhetorical and psychological devices, T he Wings of the Dove offers an unfettered vision of our civilization and it s discontents. It represents a culmination of James's art and, as such, of the art of the novel itself.

DUBLINERS, Joyce, James
58 Joyce, James DUBLINERS
Barnes & Noble 1999 0760712271 / 9780760712276 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Although James Joyce left Ireland as a young man and spent most of his adul t life on the European continent, all his books have Ireland as their geogr aphic center. When asked near the end of his life if he ever intended to re turn to Ireland, Joyce responded candidly, "Have I ever left it?" In the fifteen classic stories that comprise Dubliners, James Joyce seeks t o explore the "significance of trivial things." While the stories can be re garded as separate and independent entities, they can also be considered as parts of a larger whole, reinforcing and illuminating each other, acting a s pieces of a mosaic that captures moods from childhood, young adulthood, c ourtship, and married life, as well as the public life of church, state, an d the arts. Included in the collection is The Dead," Joyce's most enduring and evocative piece of short fiction, together with the often anthologized Araby, Eveline, and A Painful Case. Complementing the edition are eight specially commissioned maps of Dublin that allow the reader to follow the characters in and around the city that Joyce deemed "the center of paralysis," and an introduction by renowned Joyce scholar Don Gifford.

Bantam Classics 1985 0553211900 / 9780553211900 Paperback Very Good 
The only one of Kipling's novels to be cast in an American setting, Captain s Courageous endures as one of literature's most cherished and memorable se a adventures. Harvey Cheyne, spoiled millionaire's son, tumbles overboard f rom a luxury liner--only to be rescued by the crew of a Gloucester schooner . Thus begins the boy's second voyage into the rugged rites and ways of sai lors. Like all Kipling's masterworks, Captains Courageous is an interweavin g of art and moral purpose. Angus Wilson has said that it shows "delicacy o f craft and violence of feeling, exactitude and wile impressionism, subtlet y and true innocence." A popular favorite since its first publication in 18 97, the novel remains a classic story of youthful initiation--and a lively tribute to the author's famous code of bravery, loyalty, and honor among me n.
