📒Faithful Realism ✍ Josie Billington
📝Faithful Realism Book Synopsis : Criticism of Elizabeth Gaskell of the last half century has tended to concentrate upon her contribution to the Victorian "social-problem" novel or upon her achievements as a female novelist writing about women. This book offers a reading of Elizabeth Gaskell's work which runs counter to the established view of her as a sociopolitical and/or provincial writer whose work is principally of interest to social historians or to those interested in women's studies. Josie Billington seeks to resituate Gaskell's work within the wider tradition of nineteenth-century realism and argues that Gaskell deserves to be read not as a poor second to George Eliot but as offering an English Victorian equivalent of the religious realism of Leo Tolstoy. By bringing together for comparison two writers whose realist mode and vision rests upon a form of religious belief, and by setting these against the more skeptical forms of realism offered by George Eliot and Thomas Hardy, the book also offers a strong challenge to the accepted view of the nineteenth-century realist novel as an essentially secular form - the epic, as Lukacs put it, of a world abandoned by God. This book makes a highly original contribution to Gaskell scholarship not only in the fresh emphasis it gives to Gaskell's work, but in the subtle close reading it applies to original manuscript material and the consequent teasing out of Gaskell's characteristic habits of mind and composition. In addition, the book makes a valuable contribution to the study of nineteenth-century realist fiction in relation to belief and secularization in the Victorian period.

📒Fairy Tales By Hans Christian Andersen Illustrated By Harry Clarke ✍ Hans Christian Andersen
📝Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen Illustrated by Harry Clarke Book Synopsis : Originally published in 1916, Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen, is illustrated with the magnificent colour and black and white illustrations of Harry Clarke. This collection contains twenty-four of Andersen’s stories, including such well-known and loved tales as ‘The Little Mermaid, ‘The Steadfast Tin Soldier’, ‘The Ugly Duckling’, ‘The Snow Queen’, ‘The Nightingale’ and ‘The Red Shoes’. Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish poet and author celebrated for his children’s stories but perhaps best known for his fables and fairy tales – meant for both adults and children. They were frequently written in a colloquial style, using idioms and spoke language in a manner previously unseen in Danish literature. Though simple at first glance, Andersen’s stories often convey sophisticated moral teachings, in equal measure heart-breaking and heart-warming. The stories of Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen are accompanied by the dazzling illustrations of a master of the trade; Harry Clarke (1889 – 1931). Clarke was an Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator – and a leading figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement. His drawings were inspired by the Art Nouveax style so typical of this period – and his sinuous lines combined with delicate colouring earned him a reputation as a preeminent illustrator of the ‘Golden Age.’ Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Andersen’s captivating narratives.

📝THE SAMSON OF TAVISTOCK and THE MIDNIGHT HUNTER OF THE MOOR Two Legends of Cornwall Book Synopsis : ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 259 In this 259th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the two Cornish legends of “THE SAMSON OF TAVISTOCK and THE MIDNIGHT HUNTER OF THE MOOR” In the first legend Baba Indaba tells us the true legend of THE SAMSON OF TAVISTOCK. In 961AD Orgar, the Earl of Devon founded Tavistock Abbey. He died in 971AD and his son, Ordulph completed the task in 981. This legend is but one of many about Ordulph who, by reports, was a giant of a man. You are invited to download and read of the feats of this giant whose bones were found during the construction of the Bedford Hotel. When excavating the foundations a large sarcophagus was found with unusually large thigh bones within, which were taken to be those of Ordulf. The location of the sarcophagus was where the Abbey’s cloister would have been. In THE MIDNIGHT HUNTER OF THE MOOR Baba Indaba tells us the legend of the Abbotts Way, which is a very ancient road and runs across the southern part of the heart of wild Dartmoor. To-day, much of this old trackway has gone back to nature and cannot be distinguished from the rugged moorland across which it passes, but some stretches of it survive in a strange green path marked here and there by a boundary stone or a much-weathered Celtic cross. But the old stories—tales perhaps even older than the road—tell that the Abbot's Way is the favourite hunting ground of the Wish Hounds or Yell Hounds, an eerie spectre-pack that hunts across the wildest parts of the moor on moonless nights. Strange, gruesome tales of those, benighted, or lost in the fog who never came home. You are invited to download and read these two legends on a dark and stormy night to young scared children kept awake by the wind, thunder and lightning.
