Here are some of the remarkable features of &&LI&&RBarnes & Noble Classics&&L/I&&R: &&LDIV&&R New introductions commissioned from today''s top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader''s viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriate All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. &&LI&&RBarnes & Noble Classics &&L/I&&Rpulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader''s understanding of these enduring works.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&RA haunting tale of romantic self-deception, &&LI&&RThe Return of the Native&&L/I&&R focuses on mismatched lovers who see in each other only what they want to see, and decidedly not what is actually there.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RClym Yeobright, the native of the title, returns to &&LB&&RHardy&&L/B&&R''s fictional Egdon Heath determined to be a force for social progress. Dazzled by the beauty of Eustacia Vye, he imagines they''re soul mates, woos and wins her, and enters into what is at first a passionate marriage. He soon discovers that what she really wants is a passport to a more exciting and sophisticated life, away from provincial England. Surrounding them are Clym''s mother, strongly opposed to his marria‚Č• Damon Wildeve, in love with Eustacia but married to Clym''s cousin, Thomasin; and the oddly ambiguous observer Diggory Venn, whose frustrated love for Thomasin turns him into either a guardian angel or a jealous manipulator--or perhaps both. This stew of curdled love and conflicting emotions can only boil over into tragedy, and the book''s darkly ironic ending marks it as both a classically Victorian novel and a forerunner of the modernist fiction that followed it. &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RLauren Walsh&&L/B&&R teaches a writing seminar at Columbia University, where she is completing her Ph.D. in English and Comparative Literature.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R
