On Histories And Stories, A.S. Byatt
2 A.S. Byatt On Histories And Stories
Vintage 231529 London 2001 0099283832 / 9780099283836 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket In her powerful opening essays - 'Fathers', 'Forefathers' and 'Ancestors' - A. S. Byatt considers the renaissance of the historical novel and discusses particularly the novel of wartime experience; the surprising variety of distant pasts that British writers have invented; and the new 'Darwinian novel'. These afford new readings of writers from Elizabeth Bowen and Henry Green to Anthony Burgess, William Golding and Muriel Spark, and other contemporary authors, including Penelope Fitzgerald, Julian Barnes, Martin Amis and Pat Barker. She also offers fascinating insight into her own translation of historical fact into fiction in the two novellas which make up Angels and Insects. 196 pages. Light browning to page edges.

Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity, Duncan Kennedy
11 Duncan Kennedy Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity
Harvard University Press 227643 USA 1993 0674802977 / 9780674802971 Softcover Very Good Condition Duncan Kennedy argues that an American radicalism is both possible and desirable. One base for radical politics is the big institutional workplace; another is popular culture--whence his emphasis on phenomena like sexy dressing. Kennedy's aim is to wed the rebelliousness, irony, and irrationalism of cultural modernism and postmodernism to the earnestness of political correctness. 258 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Landprints - Reflections on Place and Landscape, George Seddon
15 George Seddon Landprints - Reflections on Place and Landscape
Cambridge University Press 232082 Australia 1997 052165999X / 9780521659994 Softcover Near Fine Condition This is a series of essays about the ways in which landscape is constructed, managed and designed. The essays attempt a synthesis that ranges from the physical and biophysical through landuse to perception and cultural and linguistic analysis. The landscapes of Australia are challenging in that our culture, essentially European in origin, is both immensely enriching yet, because generated in an environment vastly different from that of Australia, disabling. This requires of us a dual allegiance and competing loyalties and demands, often difficult to resolve. 254 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985, Germaine Greer
16 Germaine Greer The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985
Picador 226788 Great Britain 1986 0330301497 / 9780330301497 Softcover Good Condition Always strong and fearless, Germaine Greer strikes right at the heart of the matter-be it John F. Kennedy and vaginal deodorants, rape and artificial insemination, cosmetic surgery, the death of Jimi Hendrix, or the famine in Ethiopia. This collection represents a mosaic of essays, long and short, some of which are appearing for the first time in print and all of which chafe the conventional and are bristling with argument. From the youthful liveliness of her sixties pieces, which "got up everybody's nose," to the depth and complexity of her later work, The Madwoman's Underclothes is a reflection both of an era and of the changing ideas and styles of Germaine Greer: "The essays on Brazil, Cuba, and Ethiopia represent my coming of age. Something like a coherent system of values is beginning to emerge after my years of wandering, although I have certainly not arrived at a set of articles of faith, and never will, I hope." Greer's opinions on social, political, and sexual trends and mores are tendered in her unique fashion-outspoken, with rapier wit and no tolerance for narrow-mindedness. But as explosive, angry, and often funny as these essays are, they also reveal tenderness and sadness and that emotion that underlies all of Greer's work-passionate commitment. 305 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Essays; Essays & Literary Criticism; ISBN: 0330301497. ISBN/EAN: 9780330301497. Inventory No: 226788. Paperback
