Description:
Constable and Company, London 1961 hardcover, 5¾" x 8¾", with dust jacket Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, pocket and stickers. GOOD book in FAIR unclipped dust jacket The author was an eminent Russian geographer, geologist and explorer - and a member of the Academy of Sciences. The exploits, explorations and adventures of Foma Kapitonovitch Kukushkin in Central Asia are firmly based on the author's experiences in this little-known part of the world, and on those of his fellow explorers. Such 'tales' have enjoyed a great vogue in the Soviet Union - and we believe that this book is the first example of this genre to appear in the English language. Book includes several maps.

He explains, too, how Charles deserved the title "le roi tres victorieux". Highly readable.

Beginning with Mallarme and ending with Beckett, this book traces the influences of Symbolism in the development of twentieth-century drama. The focus of Symbolist drama was centred on the collapse of the physical and moral universe; and representation turned from the outward to the inward landscape, progressively becoming a transcript of the unconscious life. This book traces the development of Symbolism in the theatre of our time.

But equally vivid is her depiction of the complicated process of putting her life back together. The attack leaves her with permanent facial disfigurement, making her re-entry into the world something as painful as the reconstructive surgery she undergoes. She details the long road back to equilibrium with perception and humour.
