Direct and vivid in its telling of the details of a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, the novel manages ultimately to deliver much more. It is the feelings that loom behind those daily events--the social alliances, the shopkeeper's exchange, the fact of death--that give Mrs. Dalloway texture and richness.

Virginia Woolfs subtile Gesellschaftskomödie aus viktorianischer Zeit Katharine Hilbery, wohlerzogene Tochter aus der Londoner Oberschicht, ist standesgemäß und langweilig verlobt. Doch sie erliegt der Faszination des jungen Rechtsanwalts und sozialen Aufsteigers Ralph, der sie liebt, aber seinerseits von der Frauenrechtlerin Mary verehrt wird. Katharine entscheidet sich gegen die Konventionen ihrer Herkunft und für ihre Liebe zu Ralph. Ihre Cousine Cassandra schwärmt hingegen für Katharines Verlobten und verzehrt sich deshalb in Gewissensnöten. Spionierende Tanten, verpasste Rendezvous, Eifersucht und gekränkte Eitelkeiten können nicht verhindern, dass die Verliebten zueinander finden.

Introduction and Notes by Deborah Parsons, University of Birmingham. 'I am writing to a rhythm and not to a plot', Virginia Woolf stated of her eighth novel, The Waves. Widely regarded as one of her greatest and most original works, it conveys the rhythms of life in synchrony with the cycle of nature and the passage of time. Six children - Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louis - meet in a garden close to the sea, their voices sounding over the constant echo of the waves that roll back and forth from the shore. The subsequent continuity of these six main characters, as they develop from childhood to maturity and follow different passions and ambitions, is interspersed with interludes from the timeless and unifying chorus of nature. In pure stream-of-consciousness style, Woolf presents a cross-section of multiple yet parallel lives, each marked by the disintegrating force of a mutual tragedy. The Waves is her searching exploration of individual and collective identity, and the observations and emotions of life, from the simplicity and surging optimism of youth to the vacancy and despair of middle-age.

Lost in Translation zwischen Peking und London Die junge Chinesin Zhuang reist zum ersten Mal in den Westen und taucht in eine fremde Welt ein. Sprache und Umgangsformen, Essen und Trinken, Liebe und Sex – alles ist befremdlich, überraschend und manchmal unbegreiflich. Ebenso amüsante wie erhellende Missverständnisse verbinden sich zu einem rasanten Verwirrspiel zwischen Ost und West und Mann und Frau. Ein außergewöhnliches Lesevergnügen! Als Zhuang in London ankommt, fühlt sie sich vollkommen verloren. Ihre Eltern haben sie in den Westen geschickt, damit sie Englisch lernt. Doch es ist nicht nur die fremde Sprache, die ihr Mühe macht. Sie sieht sich mit unfreundlichen Taxifahrern, ungenießbarem Essen und seltsamen Umgangsformen konfrontiert. Unbekannte Wörter, ungewöhnliche Begebenheiten und verblüffende Beobachtungen hält sie in einem kleinen Notizbuch fest, das zum Rettungsanker im Meer der Missverständnisse wird. Geborgen fühlt sich Zhuang nur im Kino – dort begegnet sie schließlich auch der Liebe. Doch im Westen erweist sich diese als ebenso kompliziert wie der Alltag. Xiaolu Guo inszeniert den Kulturschock erhellend und voller Witz. „Kleines Wörterbuch für Liebende“ ist ein kluges, unterhaltsames Verwirrspiel um kulturelle Unterschiede und nicht miteinander zu vereinbarende Lebensformen. Zugleich ist es eine zärtliche, bittersüße Liebesgeschichte.

To the Lighthouse features the serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests who are on holiday on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Virginia Woolf constructs a moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflicts within a marriage.

The Idiot

Translated by Constance Garnett, with an Introduction and Notes by Agnes Cardinal, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Comparative Literature at the University of Kent. Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection and Dostoevsky's own views, afflictions and manners. His serene selflessness is contrasted with the worldly qualities of every other character in the novel. Dostoevsky supplies a harsh indictment of the Russian ruling class of his day who have created a world which cannot accomodate the goodness of this idiot.

The quiet contemporary American novel

Author: Rachel Sykes

This book explores the concept of 'quiet' an aesthetic of narrative driven by reflective principles and argues for the term's application to the study of contemporary American fiction. In doing so, it makes two critical interventions. Firstly, it maps the neglected history of quiet fictions, arguing that from Hester Prynne to Clarissa Dalloway, from Bartleby to William Stoner, the Western tradition is filled with quiet characters. Secondly, it asks what it means for a novel to be quiet and how we might read for quiet in an American literary tradition that critics so often describe as noisy. Examining recent works by Marilynne Robinson, Teju Cole and Ben Lerner, among others, the book argues that quiet can be a multi-faceted state of existence, one that is communicative and expressive in as many ways as noise but filled with potential for radical discourse by its marginalisation as a mode of expression.
