A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This is Thackeray s last novel, edited and with commentary by a leading textual scholar. The last completed novel of William Makepeace Thackeray, The Adventures of Philip tells the story of Philip Firmin, a blustering but good-hearted young man. When his mother dies, Philip becomes heir to a fortune but is estranged from his father, who proceeds to waste his son s inheritance on fraudulent speculation. Next Philip s true love casts him aside for a richer man, and he proposes to Charlotte. However, their marriage causes an immediate rift with Philip s wealthy relation Lord Ringwood. After Philip s bad temper loses him a series of positions as a journalist, things look particularly bleak. The discovery of Lord Ringwood s lost will may be Philip s last hope - but how favorably will Lord Ringwood look on him? Included in the edition are a list of manuscript alterations, a list of emendations, and a collation of historical variants as well as extensive discussion of the editorial theory and practices. Particular attention is paid to the problems confronting any editor of Thackeray: ambiguities in his handwriting, choosing between vastly different authorial rhetorical punctuation and the semantic punctuation standard in Smith s publishing house. Other volumes in the Thackeray Edition include The English Humourists of the Eighteenth Century and Charity and Humour; The Snobs of England and Punch s Prize Novelists ; Catherine ; The Luck of Barry Lyndon: A Romance of the Last Century by Fitz-Boodle; The Newcomes: Memoirs of a Most Respectable Family ; and, The History of Henry Esmond .
