The Shadow Master

Elaine Feinstein

Hutchinson, London, 1978. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/Good. In Elaine Feinstein's new novel, which is wider in scale and more fascinating in theme than any of her previous books, a group of English tourists on a Golden Wonder holiday in Istanbul find themselves involved in a re-enactment of a seventeenth century legend, and a chain of events with bizarre consequence for the whole world. The story ranges across present-day Europe, East and West, charting prejudice, brutality and longing for apocalyptic change. The mood of the tale moves from gentle irony to black farce; with time for the misadventures of Howard, middle-aged accountant and his wife, as well as magnificent monsters like Lilian the astrologer and Anastasia, Russian aristocrat and drug -smuggler extraordinary. At the centre of the legend, hidden (like the master of a seventeenth century shadow-puppet show) stands a figure of enormous and controversial authority whose own role we do not come to understand unti ...

The importance of monuments and inscriptions in the illustration of local history cannot be too strongly maintained ; but for these, how many persons and events worthy of remembrance would have remained unknown. There are few monuments in the Isle of Man with any pre tension to artistic taste. The inscriptions recorded by Mr. Feltham are in many instances only a bare memorial of name, date, and age, yet these alone will be found useful to the future historian in recording the genealogy of families, as w ...

It is the outcome of the author's investigations in Sweden just before the outbreak of war. More recently, she has had the advantage of assistance from the Royal Board of Education in Stockholm and from personal friends in Sweden, in bringing the matter fully up to date by the inclusion of recent statistics. The author makes clear the relevance of the Swedish experiments to the future of adult education in England. She discusses the merits of the residential system compared with the system of evening classes, draws comparisons between the Swedish colleges and the nine institutions existing for similar purposes in England, and makes suggestions for our post-war development. From the study of the Swedish colleges, and the ... Read more

Cambridge University Press, London, 1971. First Edition. Black Cloth. Near Fine/No Jacket. gilt titles spine; beige endpapers; "In medieval literature there was a convention which laid down that the choice of language was determined by the literary genre in question, not by the nationality of the author. The North Italian troubadours from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries wrote lyric poetry in Provencal and narrative poetry in French; Italian tended to be restricted to legal prose. Ramon Vidal de Besalu at the end of the twelfth century declared that French was best suited to certain poetic genres - romanz, retronsas and pasturellas -, while Provencal was more appropriate to others - vers, cansos and sirventes. He does not consider his own native language, Catalan, at all in this connexion."; a study of polyglot & bilingual literature from the medieval period to the present day; a clean copy; including index - 101 pages.

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1969. First Edition. Green Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. gilt titles spine; colour frontis. of painting from the School of Fontainebleau plus four b/w. plate illusts. in mid-section; "The themes and literary devices developed by Petrarch in his poetry became a kind of international stylistic Esperanto in renaissance and baroque literature. In this short introductory book Professor Forster examines Petrarchism as a European phenomenon transcending national boundaries. He begins with a general survey of themes and conventions, providing, with quotation, something like a repertory of the devices. He then shows in an important historical study how various vernacular literatures were seeking for a renewal of poetic diction at the moment when Petrarchism was available to meet the need. The third study examines particular forms - the alba or dawn poem, the pastourelle, the epithalarnium - and shows how realism in love-relationships could be accommodated within the tradi ...
