Description : More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
Description : In this book, originally published in 1962, one of America’s most distinguished historians defines the scope and variety fo his field and out lines his views on history’s objectives both as a science and as an art. The book provides insight into historians’ methods of interpreting and presenting the past from Thucydides to twentieth century scholarship on Europe and America. It sets apart the different approaches to history – biographical, cultural, intellectual, geographical and political – illuminating the peculiar goals, problems and development of each discipline. It discusses the question of pre-history and its companion science, archaeology and spans the history of the collection and use of records.
Description : Women Writers Dramatized includes the dramatizations of canonical works by authors such as Jane Austen, George Eliot, Mary Shelley, Harriet Beecher Stowe, as well as lesser-known authors about whom little - and in some cases virtually no - prior scholarly work has been done, contributing to the study of long-forgotten or largely ignored female writers like Frances Trollope, Rlioda Broughton, Sydney Owenson and Jane Porter. The volume catalogues stage adaptations, TV, radio and film dramatizations, as well as extravaganzas, burlesques, and pantomimes of narrative works.
