A Guide to English Literature by F. W. Bateson Book Resume:

At first glance A Guide to English Literature may seem to be no more than a short bibliography of English literature with perhaps rather more extensive--and certainly more outspoken--comments on the principal editions, commentaries, biographies, and critical works than bibliographies usually provide. But it is something more: this guide contains long "inter-chapters" that provide reinterpretations of the principal periods of English literature in the light of modern research, as well as two final sections summarizing in unusual detail the literary criticism that exists in English and recent scholarship in the field. The purpose of this book, then, is to provide the reader with convenient access to a disciplined study of the texts themselves. This guide proposes itself as a new kind of literary history. The conventional history of literature has often tended to become a substitute for the reading of the literature it describes: the better the history, the greater the temptation to substitute it. The present combination of reading lists and inter-chapters cannot be a substitute for anything else. Meaningless as literature in themselves, they nevertheless provide the necessary preliminary information to meaningful reading. Since oddities of arrangement derive from these assumptions, the authors are not arranged alphabetically. Instead there are chronological compartments--with the divisions circa 1500, 1650, and 1800--in which authors succeed each other in the order of their births. This pioneering handbook is primarily a bibliographical laborsaving device. It is meant mostly for students and the general reader in that it stops where original research by the reader is expected to begin. However, the last chapter on literary scholarship is devoted specifically to the research specialist and provides indispensable equipment for the reader. There is also a general section on literary criticism which will be of use to all. F.W. Bateson (1901-1978) was University Lecturer in English Literature at Oxford and a Fellow and Tutor of Corpus Christi College. Founder and editor of the periodical Essays in Criticism, he is also editor of the four-volume Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature and the author of a number of critical studies of English poetry and drama.

Studying English Literature by Tory Young Book Resume:

Studying English Literature is a unique guide for undergraduates beginning to study the discipline of literature and those who are thinking of doing so. Unlike books that provide a survey of literary history or non-subject specific manuals that offer rigid guidelines on how to write essays, Studying English Literature invites students to engage with the subject's history and theory whilst at the same time offering information about reading, researching and writing about literature within the context of a university. The book is practical yet not patronizing: for example, whilst the discussion of plagiarism provides clear guidelines on how not to commit this offence, it also considers the difficulties students experience finding their own 'voice' when writing and provokes reflection on the value of originality and the concepts of adaptation, appropriation and intertextuality in literature. Above all, the book prizes the idea of argument rather than insisting upon formulaic essay plans, and gives many ways of finding something to say as you read and when you write, in chapters on Reading, Argument, Essays, Sentences and References.

Jeunesse- Le Coeur des ténèbres by Joseph Conrad Book Resume:

Le recueil se compose de deux récits, qui partagent deux traits communs. L'un est une même technique de narration : un narrateur non identifié rapporte les dires d'un autres narrateur, on a un récit dans le récit. L'autre est que le narrateur identifié est le même : un vieux marin, nommé Charles Marlowe, qui est plus ou moins un double de Conrad lui-même. Dans le premier récit, Marlowe, jeune, vient de prendre son premier poste d'officier sur un cargo chargé de quelques centaines de tonnes de charbon à destination de Bangkok. Le navire connaît toutes les mésaventures possibles, voie d'eau, tempête épouvantable qui lui cause de graves avaries, et entraînent un retard de plusieurs mois de son départ. Enfin, après avoir appareillé pour de bon, on découvre au milieu de l'Océan Indien, que la cargaison a pris feu spontanément... Le deuxième récit, qui donne son titre au recueil, voit un Charles Marlowe, vieux commandant pratiquement à la retraite, s'ennuyer. Il accepte de commander un bateau de rivière, chargé de remonter un grand fleuve. Aucun nom n'est donné, mais il ne fait pas de doute qu'il s'agit du Congo, dans ce qui sera le Congo belge. Il est chargé d'aller chercher un personnage étrange, nommé Kurtz, qui commande un poste commercial qui lui sert à razzier de l'ivoire. D'autres européens sont passagers sur le bateau, dont le directeur local de l'entreprise. Tous reconnaissent à Kurtz un charisme hors du commun. Celui-ci, malade, doit être relevé mais refuse de l'accepter...
