Notes and Introduction by David Ellis, University of Kent at Canterbury. With its four-letter words and its explicit descriptions of sexual intercourse, Lady Chatterley's Lover is the novel with which D.H. Lawrence is most often associated. First published privately in Florence in 1928, it only became a world-wide best-seller after Penguin Books had successfully resisted an attempt by the British Director of Public Prosecutions to prevent them offering an unexpurgated edition. The famous 'Lady Chatterley trial' heralded the sexual revolution of the coming decades and signalled the defeat of Establishment prudery. Yet Lawrence himself was hardly a liberationist and the conservativism of many aspects of his novel would later lay it open to attacks from the political avant-garde and from feminists. The story of how the wife of Sir Clifford Chatterley responds when her husband returns from the war paralysed from the waist down, and of the tender love which then develops between her and her husband's gamekeeper, is a complex one open to a variety of conflicting interpretations. This edition of the novel offers an occasion for a new generation of readers to discover what all the fuss was about; to appraise Lawrence's bitter indictment of modern industrial society, and to ask themselves what lessons there might be for the 21st century in his intense exploration of the complicated relations between love and sex.
With an Introduction and Notes by David Ellis, University of Kent at Canterbury. With Illustrations by R.Seymour, R.W. Buss and Hablot K. Browne (Phiz). The Pickwick Papers is Dickens' first novel and widely regarded as one of the major classics of comic writing in English. Originally serialised in monthly instalments, it quickly became a huge popular success with sales reaching 40,000 by the final part. In the century and a half since its first appearance, the characters of Mr Pickwick, Sam Weller and the whole of the Pickwickian crew have entered the consciousness of all who love English literature in general, and the works of Dickens in particular.
Investment banker Marty Kalish is a man with something to hide. But what exactly? When Marty arrives at the house of his married lover only to see her being brutally beaten by her husband, he breaks into the house, and the next thing he knows, he is hiding the body of the murdered husband. Marty does everything to conceal his tracks, but with the police on his tail and his lover, Rachel, in the frame, Marty confesses to the killing. Facing the death penalty, Marty assembles a small legal team and tries to find a way to save both himself and Rachel. But is everything as it seems? What is Marty really confessing to? What is he really guilty of? What really did happen on the night of the murder? Told through Marty's eyes, David Ellis's spellbinding narrative drives Line of Vision into areas of character where courtroom dramas rarely venture and, like all the best thrillers, keeps us waiting till the very last page to discover what actually happened.
With an Introduction and Notes by David Ellis, University of Kent at Canterbury. Lawrence's reputation as a novelist has often meant that his achievements in poetry have failed to receive the recognition they deserve. This edition brings together, in a form he himself sanctioned, his Collected Poems of 1928, the unexpurgated version of Pansies, and Nettles, adding to these volumes the contents of the two notebooks in which he was still writing poetry when he died in 1930. It therefore allows the reader to trace the development of Lawrence as a poet and appreciate the remarkable originality and distinctiveness of his achievement. Not all the poems reprinted here are masterpieces but there is more than enough quality to confirm Lawrence's status as one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century.

These three novellas display D. H. Lawrence's brilliant and insightful evocation of human relationships - both tender and cruel - and the devastating results of war. In The Fox, two young women living on a small farm during the First World War find their solitary life interrupted. As a fox preys on their poultry, a human predator has the women in his sights. The Captain's Doll explores the complex relationship between a German countess and a married Scottish soldier in occupied Germany, while in The Ladybird a wounded prisoner of war has a disturbing influence on the Englishwoman who visits him in hospital.
The Chau Chak Wing Museum - opening in 2020 as part of the University of Sydney - is the stunning new home for the collections of the Macleay Museum, Nicholson Museum and University Art Gallery. As well as being a significant addition to Sydney's rich cultural life, this landmark building provides state-of-the-art facilities for the enjoyment, care and research of objects spanning arts, humanity, nature and the sciences across millennia. The University of Sydney's cultural and scientific collections began as a core set of antiquities purchased by Sir Charles Nicholson, first Chancellor of the University. These collections have grown in size and breadth and are now one of the largest holdings in the southern hemisphere: they include some of the earliest known Aboriginal bark paintings, Ancient Egyptian artefacts, Greek vases, entomology specimens and modernist artworks. Through colourful imagery and Director David Ellis's sharp commentary, this volume beautifully traverses the range of natural phenomena and human achievement showcased by these extraordinary collections.
Following God's call to cross cultural mission, Ellis' experience from riots, political upheaval, physical hardship, and burn out, to caring for his wife, Adele, through her Alzheimer's, he would have been unable to hold fast without a robust biblical understanding of God's providence and sovereignty. With feeling and honesty Ellis weaves anecdote with biblical meditation, allowing scripture (especially the pivotal Psalm 2) to form the lens through which the world, in all its frightening chaos, is viewed. A personal, pastoral, faith building read, it offers scriptural reflection not trite answers - robust biblical wisdom for guidance, encouragement and challenge for Christians of all ages and stages.

When the SS Empire Windrush berthed at Tilbury docks in 1948 with 492 ex-servicemen from the Caribbean, it marked the beginning of the post-war migrations to Britain that would form part of modern, multi-cultural Britain. A significant role in this social transformation would be played by the literary and non-literary output of writers from the Caribbean. These writers in exile were responsible not just for the establishment of the West Indian novel, but, by virtue of their location in the Mother Country, were also the pioneers of black writing in Britain. Over the next fifty years, this writing would come to represent an important body of work intimately aligned to the evolving and contentious notions of 'home' as economic migration became a permanent presence. In this book, David Ellis provides in-depth analyses of six key figures whose writing charts the establishment of black Britain. For Sam Selvon, George Lamming, and E. R. Braithwaite, writing home represents a literature of reappraisal as the myths of empire -- the gold-paved streets of London -- conflict with the harsh realities of being designated an immigrant. The unresolved consequences of this reappraisal are made evident in the works of Andrew Salkey, Wilson Harris, and Linton Kwesi Johnson where radicalism in both political and literary terms can be read as a response to the rejection of the black communities by an increasingly divided Britain in the 1970s. Finally, the novels of Caryl Phillips, Joan Riley, and David Dabydeen mark an increasingly reflective literature as the notion of home shifts more explicitly from the Caribbean to Britain itself. Containing both contextual and biographical information throughout, "Writing Home" represents a literary and social history of the emergence of black Britain in the second half of the twentieth century.

Bernard Hepton stars as Mr Fletcher, the authoritarian boss who fancies himself as a bit of a ladies man - much to the misfortune of the pretty Susan (Patsy Rowlands).
