Faulks on Fiction Includes 3 Vintage Classics Great British Lovers and the Secret Life of the Novel

It was one of a handful of decisive books for me – decisive in the simple sense
that they shaped my life. ... I had heard of it, but found the title off-putting (
Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park were passable in an at-least-not-
misleading way, but ... I hadn't expected Jane Austen to be such a rebel, so
undermining of her elders and 'betters'. ... as the book went on did seem to show
that her moral landscape was subtler and larger than that of the more
conventional characters in the book.

The publication of Robinson Crusoe in London in 1719 marked the arrival of a revolutionary art form: the novel. British writers were prominent in shaping the new type of storytelling - one which reflected the experiences of ordinary people, with characters in whom readers could find not only an escape, but a deeper understanding of their own lives. But the novel was more than just a reflection of British life. As Sebastian Faulks explains in this engaging literary and social history, it also helped invent the British. By focusing not on writers but on the people they gave us, Faulks not only celebrates the recently neglected act of novelistic creation but shows how the most enduring fictional characters over the centuries have helped map the British psyche. In this ebook, Sebastian celebrates the greatest lovers in fiction - from Mr Darcy to Lady Chatterley. Also included are three classic novels: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Accomplished Elizabeth Bennett must navigate a web of familial obligations and social expectations in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry, enmity and love. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë: The story of an all consuming love which knows no boundary between life and death, Emily Brontë's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion. Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy: In a bid to alleviate her family's poverty, Tess visits the D'Urbervilles and unwittingly sets out on a path of suffering, love, social inequality and betrayal.

“The Necromancer” is a 1794 Gothic novel written by Karl Friedrich Kahlert, published under the pseudonym 'Lawrence Flammenberg'. One of the seven 'horrid novels' ridiculed by Jane Austen in her famous novel “Northanger Abbey”, it contains a series of vivid stories concerning violence, hauntings, and the supernatural adventures of Helfried, Hermann, and the mysterious Necromancer, Volker. “The Necromancer” is told through multiple verbal or epistolary narratives from the perspective of different characters. These sequences became typical of the genre, as well as signposts for readers indicating that the work was fiction—or at least of dubious credibility. This early work of Gothic fiction constitutes a must-read for fans of the genre and is not to be missed by collectors. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-qual edition complete with the original text and artwork.
