Summary

An insightful novel about two women in Edwardian England and the men who pursue them by the author of Mrs. Dalloway.Exploring themes of love, marriage, and freedom, Night and Day follows four characters: a privileged woman who prefers her solitude; a vicar’s daughter who is fighting for women’s suffrage; a lawyer caught in an obsessive romantic fixation; and a struggling writer who seeks a bride more for the sake of his career than for love. It is an absorbing story of passion and conflict, and a portrait of the expectations, anxieties, and hopes of men and women in a time of great social change.

    The central theme of Bleak House is satirical exposure of the English Chancery court system. Chancery or equity courts were one half of the English civil justice system, existing side-by-side with law courts. Chancery courts heard actions having to do with wills and estates, or with the uses of private property and were notoriously slow and inefficient. The novel has many characters and several sub-plots, and the story is told partly by the novel's heroine, Esther Summerson, and partly by an omniscient narrator. At the centre of Bleak House is a long-running legal case, Jarndyce and Jarndyce, which came about because someone wrote several conflicting wills. This novel helped support a judicial reform movement, which culminated in the enactment of legal reform in the 1870s.

    Trapped in a London laboratory during a worker uprising in 1924, ex-artillery officer and physics instructor Jeremy Tuft awakens 150 years later - in a neo-medieval society whose inhabitants have forgotten how to build or operate machinery. Not only have his fellow Londoners forgotten most of what humankind used to know, before civilization collapsed, but they don't particularly care to re-learn any of it. Though he is at first disconcerted by the failure of his own era's smug doctrine of Progress, Tuft eventually decides that post-civilized life is simpler, more peaceful. That is, until northern English and Welsh tribes threaten London - at which point he sets about reinventing weapons of mass destruction.

    Stacy Aumonier was a British writer, best known for his outstanding short stories. Nobel prize winner, John Galsworthy described Aumonier as "one of the best short-story writers of all time" and predicted that he would "outlive all the writers of his day".Aumonier wrote over 85 short stories in his lifetime. He has been described as the "British Maupassant" owing to his captivating plots and his ability to create complex characters with just a few lines of carefully selected prose.His intensely visual prose meant his works were readily adaptable to the cinema screen, and several of his short stories were adapted by Alfred Hitchcock.•	Miss Bracegirdle does her Duty•	Old Iron•	Where was Wych Street?•	Old Fags•	A Source of Irritation•	The Brothers•	Juxtapositions
