1 Ehrenpreis, Irvin ACTS OF IMPLICATION Suggestion and Covert Meaning in the Works of Dryden, Swift, Pope and Austen
Berkeley, CA University of California Press 1980 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
This book is in Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean, with the exception of one crease to the rear flap corner. "Acts of Implication argues that the best approach to the aesthetic value of much literature of the past is by way of the deliberate meaning - implicit or explicit - that the author invites the reader to shaer. Ehrenpreis shows that subtlety and indirection do not militate against the didacticism and lucid style we usually associate with writers in the Augustan tradition."

The Fiction and Criticism of Katherine Anne Porter, Mooney, Jr., Harry JOhn
2 Mooney, Jr., Harry JOhn The Fiction and Criticism of Katherine Anne Porter
Pittsburg, PA University of Pittsburgh Press 1957 1st Edition; 1st Printing Paperback Near Fine 
This is a trade paperback. This book is in Near Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some beginning edge wear to the corners and edges of the book cover. The text pages are clean and bright. "Katherine Anne Porter is an anomaly in contemporary American literature. The amount of her published work is very small, and her reputation is extremely high with nearly all schools of modern critics. But, to some extent at least, her success has been largely critical; she has never had the popular acclaim of Ernest Hemingway or even William Faulkner."
