First published in 1904, ‘A Kidnapped Santa Claus’ by L. Frank Baum is a festive short story from the prolific Oz author. Contentedly living in his castle in Laughing Valley, Santa has become a source of envy for a group of Daemons living nearby; Selfishness; Envy; Hatred; Malice; and the confused Daemon of Repentance. The Daemons try to lure Santa into taking part in their wicked ways, but Santa is too good to be tempted or tricked. When this fails, the Daemons hatch a dastardly plot to kidnap Santa Claus instead. Santa’s friends must hurry to find him, whilst also completing Santa’s mission to deliver everyone’s gifts and save Christmas. Lyman Frank Baum (1856 – 1919) was a prolific and well-known American writer. He is best known for his famous series of modern fairy tales set in the imaginary land of Oz. The first of the books, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ is widely considered to be the first true American fairy tale and was the basis for the hugely popular 1939 classic musical ‘The Wizard of Oz’ starring Judy Garland. Born and raised in New York, Baum held a range of jobs including as a poultry farmer, clerk, and storekeeper before pursuing his talent for writing at the age of 41. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, as well as over 40 other novels and over 80 short stories. He died in California in 1919.

Book Summary:

Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451 is an enduring masterwork of twentieth-century American literature—a chilling vision of a dystopian future built on the foundations of ignorance, censorship, and brutal repression. The origins and evolution of Bradbury’s darkly magnificent tale are explored in A Pleasure to Burn, a collection of sixteen selected shorter works that prefigure the grand master’s landmark novel. Classic, thematically interrelated stories alongside many crucial lesser-known ones—including, at the collection’s heart, the novellas “Long After Midnight” and “The Fireman”—A Pleasure to Burn is an indispensable companion to the most powerful work of America’s preeminent storyteller, a wondrous confirmation of the inimitable Bradbury’s brilliance, magic . . . and fire.

National or regional entries detail the principal traditions and customs of 130 countries, while 27 entries discuss major calendar systems in current use or of significant historical interest. The remaining entries cover a wide variety of subjects including literary works, movies, and television specials; the customs of specific ethnic groups; universal customs such as toasting and drinking; football bowl games and parades; and the New Year celebrations at the White House and the Vatican.

Book Summary:

The Victorian Baby in Print: Infancy, Infant Care, and Nineteenth-Century Popular Culture explores the representation of babyhood in Victorian Britain. The first study to focus exclusively on the baby in nineteenth-century literature and culture, this critical analysis discusses the changing roles of an iconic figure. A close look at the wide-ranging portrayal of infants and infant care not only reveals how divergent and often contradictory Victorian attitudes to infancy really were, but also challenges persistent clichés surrounding the literary baby that emerged or were consolidated at the time, and which are largely still with us. Drawing on a variety of texts, including novels by Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mrs Henry Wood, and Charlotte Yonge, as well as parenting magazines of the time, childrearing manuals, and advertisements, this study analyses how their representations of infancy and infant care utilised and shaped an iconography that has become definitional of the Victorian age itself. The familiar clichés surrounding the Victorian baby have had a lasting impact on the way we see both the Victorians and babies, and a critical reconsideration might also prompt a self-critical reconsideration of the still burgeoning market for infant care advice today.

Book Summary:

This volume includes a fully annotated edition of Maxwell Gray’s highly successful novel of 1886. A bestseller of its day, The Silence of Dean Maitland combines evocative descriptions of the English rural landscape, in the mould of George Eliot and Thomas Hardy, with a gripping plot reminiscent of the best sensation novels of the era. It was subsequently adapted for the stage and the screen. In addition to the main text, three specially commissioned scholarly articles discuss its significance as a novel, as well as its theatrical and cinematic adaptations. Students, researchers, and fans of Victorian literature will delight in rediscovering this forgotten classic—the fictional world of which is based on the Isle of Wight. Those with an interest in English landscape, crime and punishment, and questions of moral choice, particularly in an era profoundly impacted by the research and theories of Charles Darwin, will also find it a compelling read.
