Originally published in 1892, "the object of this Handbook is to supply readers and speakers with a lucid, but very brief account of such names as are used in allusions and references, whether by poets or prose writers; - to furnish those who consult it with the plot of popular dramas, the story of epic poems, and the outline of well-known tales. The number of dramatic plots sketched out is many hundreds. Another striking and interesting feature of the book is the revelation of the source from which dramatists and romancers have derived their stories, and the strange repetitions of historic incidents. It has been borne in mind throughout that it is not enough to state a fact. It must be stated attractively, and the character described must be drawn characteristically if the reader is to appreciate it, and feel an interest in what he reads." This work, an American reprint of The Reader's Handbook by E. Cobham Brewer, ..".while retaining all of the original material that can interest and aid the English-speaking student, gives also 'characters and sketches found in American novels, poetry and drama.'"

How did romanticism define its relationship with its sources? How has romanticism since been understood and misunderstood across a range of cultural activities? These are among the questions taken up in this reexamination of the place of adaptation within romanticism. Renegotiating the cultural topography of the period and the place of romanticism in subsequent cultural history, the volume focuses on the adaptation of source material by romantic writers and the adaptation in subsequent periods of the tropes and ideologies associated with romanticism. In place of a hierarchical distinction between source and text, between ‘romanticism’ and its contexts, the collection identifies distinct but overlapping and mutually constitutive genres such as the Gothic and romance. Whether their essays deal with early nineteenth-century periodical reviews, affordable editions of Pride and Prejudice aimed at the late nineteenth-century mass audience, or the ongoing cultural presence of romanticism in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century debates about embryology and stem cell research, the contributors remain cognizant of the tension between the processes of adaptation and the apparent ideology of romantic originality.

Pride & Prejudice Jane Austen constructed Pride & Prejudice with wit, social precision and an irresistible heroine. Beginning with one of the most famous sentences in English Literature, it is a perfect ironic novel of manners.Persuasion Jane Austen's question 'What is persuasion?' - a firm belief, or the action of persuading someone to think something else? - is the force behind this novel. Anne Elliot, one of Austen's quietest yet strongest heroines, is also open to change.Jane Eyre Charlotte Bronte's poor, plain, but plucky heroine, possesses an indomitable spirit, a sharp wit and great courage. She is forced to battle against a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order.Wuthering Heights Emily Bronte's tale is a wild, passionate story of intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and the adopted foundling Heathcliff. Humiliated by Hindley, Catherine's brother, Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights, but in time he returns to exact a terrible revenge.Tess of the d'Urbervilles Set in Hardy's Wessex, Tess of the d'Urbervilles is a moving novel of hypocrisy and double standards. It tells of Tess Durbeyfield, a poor village girl, her relationships with two very different men, her fluctuating fortunes and her search for respectability.Lady Chatterley's Lover D.H. Lawrence tells the story of Sir Clifford Chatterley, who returns from the war paralysed from the waist down, and of the consequent love which then develops betweenhis wife and his gamekeeper. It is a complex tale open to a variety of conflicting interpretations.

Emma Woodhouse ist eine wohlsituierte junge Dame von 21 Jahren, die mit ihrem Vater in Highbury, einem kleinen Dorf in der Nähe von London lebt. Die Woodhouses gehören zu den ersten Familien im Ort. Das Buch beginnt unmittelbar nach der von Emma arrangierten Verheiratung ihrer Erzieherin, Miss Taylor, die damit zu Mrs. Weston wird und einen gesellschaftlichen Aufstieg macht. Weil Emma die Verehelichung ihrer Erzieherin gelungen ist, sieht sie ihre Fähigkeiten auf genau diesem Gebiet, und sie sinnt nach einem neuen Arrangement, das ihr die Langeweile vertreiben soll. Ein junges Mädchen aus weniger guten Verhältnissen, Harriet Smith, erwählt sie sich als neue Freundin und als zukünftige Braut des Dorfpfarrers Mr. Elton. Sie setzt alle Hebel in Bewegung, um die beiden zusammenzubringen, obwohl ihr Schwippschwager Mr. Knightley ihr dringend von diesem Ansinnen abrät. Als Harriet einen Heiratsantrag von Mr. Knightleys Pächter Mr. Martin erhält, lehnt sie diesen auf Anraten Emmas ab, obwohl sie Mr. Martin im Stillen sehr bewundert. Doch Emma hat ihr Mr. Elton schmackhaft gemacht, und der steht natürlich weit über einem Bauern. Bei der bevorstehenden Weihnachtsfeier hofft Emma, Mr. Elton und Harriet endlich zusammenzubringen. Doch Harriet liegt mit einer schweren Halsentzündung im Bett. Mr. Elton hat nun seiner Herzdame lange genug den Hof gemacht und kommt zur Sache: Auf dem Heimweg ist er allein mit Emma in der Kutsche und macht ihr seinen Heiratsantrag. Emma ist schockiert und weist ihn mit aller Bestimmtheit zurück. Sie erfährt, dass er an Harriet gar nie interessiert war und all seine Artigkeiten allein ihr galten. Sie schwört sich, das Ehestiften bleiben zu lassen, weil sie nun in der misslichen Lage ist, Harriet diese Wendung erklären zu müssen. Mr. Elton seinerseits reist unverzüglich nach Bath, um nach kurzer Zeit verheiratet zurückzukehren: Mrs. Elton ist eine eingebildete junge Dame, die sich gerne selber lobt, aber selbst nur wenige Talente vorzuweisen hat.

In the Romantic period, a range of social, cultural, and political changes and events coalesce in such a way as to produce a sudden and significant amount of pressure on general ideas of what a gypsy might be, and thus on representations of gypsies in literature and art. Because of the very particular situation in which Romantic-period gypsies find themselves, for approximately fifty years the figure of the gypsy becomes a peculiarly effective means through whichanxieties about these changes and events might be articulated. This book examines the way in which writers and artists from the Romantic period depict gypsies, showing how various aspects of thecontemporary context influence those depictions, and highlighting the opportunities offered by the figure of the gypsy for the exploration of a range of hopes and fears.
