11 Leighton, Angela & Margaret Reynolds Victorian Women Poets An Anthology
Wiley-Blackwell 1999 0631176098 / 9780631176091 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
This reader contains 17 new and recent essays addressing work by, and issues raised concerning, Victorian women poets. Among those discussed directly are: Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Bronte, George Eliot, Michael Field, Felicia Hemans, Adelaide Anne Procter, Christina Rossetti, and Rosamund Marriott Watson. Key topics dealt with include the nature of home, the market, the fallen woman and the moral law, the mother, and the muse. An invaluable critical companion to its sister volume Victorian Women Poets: An Anthology, it provides fresh impetus to important current debates about interpretation, concerning: the use of biography, the tension between political and aesthetic readings, the question of poetic value and canonization, the conflict between old historical and new historical approaches, and the validity of psychoanalytic, poststructuralist and feminist readings. Critics represented are: Isobel Armstrong, Kathleen Blake, Susan Conley, Stevie Davies, Sandra M. Gilbert, Gill Gregory, Terrence Holt, Linda K. Hughes, Angela Katharine McGowan, A. Leighton, Tricia Lootens, Jerome J. McGann, J. Dorothy Mermin, Margaret Reynolds, Dolores Rosenblum, Chris White, and Joyce Zonana.; Blackwell Anthologies; 8.90 X 6 X 1.60 inches; 691 pages

Broke, recently divorced, and a total deadbeat, Bob Wells has spent his life as a psychiatrist only doing good in the world. When one of his patients with clear paranoid delusions starts to lose a grip, Bob has no choice but to intervene. Emile Bardan is haunted by demons, and he believes that someone is trying to steal his most prized possesion, the legendeary Mask of Utu. Bob thinks it's all part of Emile's imagination until he discovers that Emile is telling the truth and that the mask is worth millions. It's Bob who may actually be the one losing his grip. He's tired of helping people for nothing, tired of being treated like dirt-and while he may have met the girl of his dreams, he doesn't want to lose her because he can't take care of her. There is only one thing to do:Bob is going to steal the mask himself: But doing so may mean making the biggest mistake of all-as he proceeds down a path into a dark abyss from which there is no return.
