For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton s William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant s essay on film... View more info

Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning are without parallel in the nineteenth century: celebrated poets, they became equally famous for their marriage. Still popular more than a century after their deaths, their poetry vividly reflects the unique nature of their relationship. This collection presents the Brownings' work in the context of their lives: the early years and their initial friendship, their courtship and marriage, the fifteen happy years they spent living in Italy until Elizabeth's death. Whether in short poems such as Elizabeth's "Hector in the Garden" and Robert's "Nat... View more info

A new translation of one of the most popular satires on the Russian Revolution and Soviet society Best known for "The Master and Margarita," Mikhail Bulgakov is one of twentieth-century Russia's most prominent novelists. A "Dead Man's Memoir" is a semi- autobiographical story about a writer who fails to sell his novel, then fails to commit suicide. When the writer's play is taken up for production in a theater, literary success beckons, but he is not prepared to reckon with the grotesquely inflated egos of the actors, directors, and theater managers.

In Earth Journal, John Caddy advocates poetry as a physical act--a morning practice or devotion, a decision to record quickly and without forethought the direct, momentary experience of each new day. Presenting a selection of his daily poems covering the seasons of the year, he provides commentary and instruction for individuals, teachers, and students about starting their own daily earth journals. "Whenever you write," Caddy says, "you surprise yourself saying likable things that you did not plan." The unfiltered inscription of each day opens the senses, integrating the writer with the wh...
