Rachel Ray (Paperback): Anthony Trollope Rachel Ray (Paperback)
Anthony Trollope; Edited by P.D. Edwards
R261 R203 Discovery Miles 2 030 Save R58 (22%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Rachel Ray offers a masterly and entertaining evocation of a small community living its life in mid-nineteenth-century England. The novel first appeared in 1863, a year in which public reaction against the excesses of the popular sensationalist novel prompted Trollope to state that he was writing about "the commonest details of commonplace life among the most ordinary people."

Aurora Floyd (Paperback): Mary Elizabeth Braddon Aurora Floyd (Paperback)
Mary Elizabeth Braddon; Edited by P.D. Edwards

With Lady Audley's Secret, Mary Elizabeth Braddon had established herself, alongside Wilkie Collins and Mrs Henry Wood, as one of the ruling triumvirate of sensation novelists'. Aurora Floyd (1862-3), following hot on its heels, achieved almost equal popularity and notoriety.
Like Lady Audley, Aurora is a beautiful young woman bigamously married and threatened with exposure by a blackmailer. But in Aurora Floyd, and in many of the novels written in imitation of it, bigamy is little more than a euphemism, a device to enable the heroine, and vicariously the reader, to enjoy the forbidden sweets of adultery without adulterous intentions. Passionate, sometimes violent, Aurora does succeed in enjoying them, her desires scarcely chastened by her disastrous first marriage. She represents a challenge to the mid-Victorian sexual code, and particularly to the feminine ideal of simpering, angelic young ladyhood.
P. D. Edward's introduction evaluates the novel's leading place among bigamy-novels' and Braddon's treatment of the power struggle between the sexes, as well as considering the similarities between the author and her heroine.

Dickens s  Young Men - George Augustus Sala, Edmund Yates and the World of Victorian Journalism (Paperback): P.D. Edwards Dickens s Young Men - George Augustus Sala, Edmund Yates and the World of Victorian Journalism (Paperback)
P.D. Edwards
R1,063 Discovery Miles 10 630 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In Dickens's lifetime, and for a generation or so after, Edmund Hodgson Yates and George Augustus Sala were the best known and most successful of his "young men" - the budding writers who acknowledged him as their guide and mentor and whose literary careers the publicity and privately fostered. The book considers their personal and literary relationships with Dickens, with each other, and with other writers of the period, Bohemian and "respectable", including Yates's arch-enemy, his post-office colleague Anthony Trollope. But it also demonstrates that their life and writings - their fiction, private letters and occasional essays in verse and drama, as well as their already recognised contributions to the development of the "new journalism" - are interesting and historically illuminating in their own right, not merely pale reflections of the glory of greater writers. Extensive use is made of previously unpublished material.

First published in 1968, this book sets out to refute the idea of Trollope as a 'mild cathedral-town novelist, describing storms in ecclesiastical tea cups' which prevailed at the time in spite of his stature during his lifetime. The author reveals the full strength and range of Trollope's achievement and provides an excellent introduction to further exploration of the novels. Two sections - 'Narrative Method' and 'Subject-Matter' - are used as the basis from which the author examines key themes in Trollope's work, with instructive extracts from the novels included to illustrate these points and upon which commentary is provided. This book will be of interest to students of literature.
