Novels of the Eighteen-Forties.
A deep dive into a specific period of literature, with additional sections on four specific novels: Dombey and Son, Mary Barton, Vanity Fair, Jane Eyre. The focus is on the novels themselves and the contemporary eye of the reader, which involves some looking back and forward in time. For example, we learn who of these novelists were, and were not, reading Scott and Jane Austen. Creased spine, a few pencil underlinings. Otherwise very clean. Oxford University Press, Oxford Paperbacks. 1961. Paper. USED. $2.00
