  • The Essence of the Brontesby Muriel Spark

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.89

    Muriel Spark always regarded the Brontės with a novelist?s eye.

Through her critical and biographical work on the Brontės Spark identified not only their achievements... more...

  • Arthurian Legend in the Seventeenth Centuryby Roberta Florence Brinkley

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    The study of the Arthurian legend in the 1600s has revealed almost no romance; the stories are more about the truth of Arthur?s existence and his exploits, with influence due to political bearing of the royalty versus parliament at the time. This fascinating study elucidates the differences between the stories of the seventeenth century and those... more...
