    A Delicate Wildness: The Life And Loves Of David Thomson, 1914-1988
    Julian Vignoles - Paperback - The Lilliput Press
    Thomson was a Scotsman who became an honorary Irishman, writer, folklorist and radio producer. His life took a fateful turn when, while a history student at Oxford, Thomson came to County Roscommon in the early 1930s as tutor to an Anglo-Irish family. He fell in love with the daughter of the house, became a farmer and 'went native', caught up in the history and landscape of counties Roscommon and Leitrim. He wrote his first book at 40, 'The People of the Sea', an exploration of seal lore. He went on to write 11 published works including autobiographical fiction, before turning to the genre in which he most excelled - memoir: 'Woodbrook', about his time in Ireland, is regarded as an Arcadian masterpiece and minor classic.

    Empathy And The Psychology Of Literary Modernism
    Meghan Marie Hammond - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    Meghan Marie Hammond shows how five exemplary writers (Henry James, Dorothy Richardson, Katherine Mansfield, Ford Madox Ford, and Virginia Woolf) tackle the so-called 'problem of other minds' in ways that reflect and enrich early 20th-century discourses of fellow feeling. Hammond argues that these authors reconfigure notions of intersubjective experience; their writings mark a key shift away from sympathetic forms of literary representation toward empathic forms that strive to provide an immediate sense of another's thoughts and feelings.
