  • Notes on Life and Lettersby Joseph Conrad

    Start Classics 2014; US$ 1.99

    I don't know whether I ought to offer an apology for this collection which has more to do with life than with letters. Its appeal is made to orderly minds. This, to be frank about it, is a process of tidying up, which, from the nature of things, cannot be regarded as premature. The fact is that I wanted to do it myself because of a feeling that had... more...

  • TransAreaby Ottmar Ette; Mark W. Person

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 56.00

    The future of area studies lies in opening out into TransArea studies, which tie together area-connected competencies with transdisciplinary research practices. It is one of the loftiest and most urgent duties of philology to lift up this treasure in the awareness of the special relevance of literature, and to make it democratically available to the... more...

  • Graham Greeneby Robert Hoskins

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 49.95

    This study reveals Greene in a dual role as author, one who projects literary experience into his view of life and subsequently projects both his experience and its "literary" interpretation into his fiction; and it defines two phases of Greenes novels through the changing relationship between writer and protagonists. The first phase progresses from... more...
