Title: The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Quotations

ISBN : 0198662815
Author :
Publisher : Oxford University Press
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX6-U6-OXF8-139F-15017


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatch from our warehouse in the UK.

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;What is literature? Depending on whom one asks, it's &doublequote;a drug&doublequote; (George Borrow); &doublequote;the question minus the answer&doublequote; (Roland Barthes); &doublequote;the orchestration of platitudes&doublequote; (Thornton Wilder); or &doublequote;a splendid mistress, but a bad wife&doublequote; (Rudyard Kipling). These bon mots and over 4,400 others (one-fifth of them new to this edition) are gathered here by Kemp, the fiction editor of the (London) Sunday Times. The quotes, as before, are organized by theme, which include Writer's Block, Morality and Tools of the Trade; Collaboration, Graffiti and Epitaphs are among several themes also new to this edition. An author index makes it easy to find out what Nabokov said about art (&doublequote;Beauty plus pity-that is the closest we can get to a definition of art&doublequote;) or what Barbara Pym thought of poetry anthologies (&doublequote;What a bad sign it is to get the Oxford Book of Victorian Verse out of the library&doublequote;). All in all, this is an edifying and highly diverting resource for any student of writing and language. &newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;&newline;&newline;From Library Journal&newline;&newline;This latest quotation dictionary lives up to Oxford's high standard. Kemp is the literary editor of the Sunday Times and a Times Literary Supplement critic. His compilation of over 4000 literary quotes fills a gap in reference literature, containing nearly 1000 more entries than Meic Stephens's A Dictionary of Literary Quotations (Routledge, 1990). It also provides the added convenience of listing quotations alphabetically both by theme (&doublequote;Writers World,&doublequote; e.g., Ballads, Horror & the Gothic) and by author (&doublequote;Writers and Their Works&doublequote;). Within both the thematic and author sections, quotes are arranged chronologically, with the source and date of the quote cited. The majority of the quotations are listed in the thematic section; authors in the &doublequote;Writers & Their Works&doublequote; section consist primarily of well-known figures from 19th- and 20th-century literature (e.g., Jane Austen, Charles Lamb, William Wordsworth). Two indexes, by author and by keyword, provide additional access. Highly recommended for academic and public reference collections.?Lois Hope Cherepon, St. John's Univ., Staten Island, NY&newline;Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.&newline;--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
