After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.

Who Betrays Elizabeth Bennet? Further Puzzles in Classic Fiction

John Sutherland, "Who Betrays Elizabeth Bennet? Further Puzzles in Classic Fiction (World's Classics)"
Oxford University Press | 1999 | ISBN: 0192838849 | siPDF | 272 pages | 4.5 MB

In this sequel to his popular works Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre Be Happy?, John Sutherland unravels thirty-four new literary puzzles, once again combining erudition with bold investigative speculation. In addition to these new conundrums, Professor Sutherland revisits some previous puzzles with the help of readers who offer their own ingenious solutions and who set fresh puzzles for exploration. Victorian drug habits, railway systems, sanitation and dentistry are only a few of the details that shed light on the motives and circumstances of some of literature's most famous characters. Elizabeth Bennet, Betsey Trotwood, Count Dracula, Anna Karenina, Alice and many more come under the spotlight in John Sutherland's highly entertaining collection. Bringing good humor and good sense back to literary criticism, Who Betrays Elizabeth Bennet? offers scintillating forensic exercises that are as compelling as the plots they dissect. Details

Her spectacular technique and interpretive depth allow her to convincingly perform a range of repertory, from works by J.S. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven to Rachmaninov, Medtner, and Prokofiev. Details
