The publication of Robinson Crusoe in London in 1719 marked the arrival of a revolutionary art form: the novel. British writers were prominent in shaping the new type of storytelling - one which reflected the experiences of ordinary people, with characters in whom readers could find not only an escape, but a deeper understanding of their own lives. But the novel was more than just a reflection of British life. As Sebastian Faulks explains in this engaging literary and social history, it also helped invent the British. By focusing not on writers but on the people they gave us, Faulks not only celebrates the recently neglected act of novelistic creation but shows how the most enduring fictional characters over the centuries have helped map the British psyche. In this ebook, Sebastian celebrates the greatest lovers in fiction - from Mr Darcy to Lady Chatterley. Also included are three classic novels: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Accomplished Elizabeth Bennett must navigate a web of familial obligations and social expectations in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry, enmity and love. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë: The story of an all consuming love which knows no boundary between life and death, Emily Brontë's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion. Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy: In a bid to alleviate her family's poverty, Tess visits the D'Urbervilles and unwittingly sets out on a path of suffering, love, social inequality and betrayal.

In this ebook, Sebastian celebrates the greatest snobs in fiction - from Emma Woodhouse to James Bond. Also included are three classic novels: Emma by Jane Austen: Emma is rich, independent and preoccupied with arranging suitors for her acquaintances. Her plans for the matrimonial success of a new friend, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens: Pip's life as an ordinary country boy is destined to be unexceptional until a chain of mysterious events lead him away from his humble origins and up the social ladder. The Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith: Mr Charles Pooter is a respectable man, unfortunately, nobody seems to recognise his gentility. George and Weedon Grossmith's comic novel, perfectly illustrated, is a glorious, affectionate caricature of the English middle-class at the end of nineteenth century.

While teaching in Japan, Judith Pascoe was fascinated to discover the popularity that Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights has enjoyed there. Nearly one hundred years after its first formal introduction to the country, the novel continues to engage the imaginations of Japanese novelists, filmmakers, manga artists, and others, resulting in numerous translations, adaptations, and dramatizations. On the Bullet Train with Emily Brontë is Pascoe’s lively account of her quest to discover the reasons for the continuous Japanese embrace of Wuthering Heights. At the same time, the book chronicles Pascoe’s experience as an adult student of Japanese. She contemplates the multiple Japanese translations of Brontë, as contrasted to the single (or nonexistent) English translations of major Japanese writers. Carrying out a close reading of a distant country’s Wuthering Heights, Pascoe begins to see American literary culture as a small island on which readers are isolated from foreign literature.

El presente volumen incluye una amplia variedad de artículos sobre la figura de Luis Buñuel (1900-1983), escritos por algunos de los especialistas más prominentes dentro del mundo de los estudios fímicos. Se trata de una colección única, que por primera vez recoge en un mismo volumen trabajos en español, francés e inglés. Tal decisión no sólo supone una muestra de respeto hacia los tres idiomas en los que se expresó Buñuel, sino que es también una forma de poner en evidencia el reconocimiento que su obra ha tenido y tiene en los entornos francófono y anglófono, además del hispano. Este libro nace con la ambición de abarcar la totalidad del trabajo de Buñuel, principalmente sus películas, pero también sus escritos. Cuenta, además, con capítulos que abordan cuestiones biográficas, como las relaciones de Buñuel con otros cineastas de la época, o con escritores y artistas. El Buñuel que emerge de estas páginas confirma el hecho de que el director aragonés sigue siendo uno de los cineastas más famosos e influyentes del siglo XX. Los capítulos aquí reunidos dan cuenta de todas las fases de su carrera: la primera etapa surrealista, sus colaboraciones con Dalí, su amistad con Lorca y con otros autores coetáneos, su trabajo en Filmófono, los años del exilio y la fase tardía y más internacional. En distitntas contribuciones se concede importancia a la forma, la ideología, la temática, las "películas alimenticias" de su periodo mexicano y las más personales y artísticas, consideradas su legado más universal y perdurable.
