1 AUSTEN, JANE; DRABBLE, MARGARET (NEW INTRODUCTION). Sense And Sensibility.
Penguin Group, New York: 1995. 0451187903 / 9780451187901 Signet Book Edition. Second Printing. s Softcover. Reading copy. 
Two sisters of opposing temperaments who share the pangs of tragic love provide the theme for Jane Austen's dramatically human narrative Sense and Sensibility. Elinor, practical and conventional, is the perfection of sense. Marianne, emotional and sentimental, is the embodiment of sensibility. To each comes the sorrow of unhappy love. Elinor desires a man who is promised to another. Marianne loses her heart to a scoundrel who jilts her.

2 DRABBLE, MARGARET (EDITOR). The Oxford Companion To English Literature.
Oxford University Press, Oxford: 1995. 0198661304 / 9780198661306 5th Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
As ever, this is an essential book for libraries large and small, for students, for teachers, for everyone interested in English literature. Drabble's revisions not only bring the volume up to date; they both deepen and widen its appeal. Topics once regarded as nonliterary--detective stories, science fiction, children's literature, comic strips, for example--are now included, as are numerous foreign language authors who have become well-known in translation. There are also entries on composers who have adapted English texts to musical forms and articles on visual artists whose work has been touched by the English literary consciousness. The book covers all the important movements and critical theories (including the latest developments in Freudian and Marxist criticism and Saussurean linguistics and its successors). What is more, the entries on classic works--Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, The Faerie Queen, and many others--now incorporate the findings of the latest scholarship.

3 DRABBLE, MARGARET. A Natural Curiosity.
Penguin Group, New York: 1996. 0670828378 / 9780670828371 First Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
A sequel to the The Radiant Way, it continues the story of Alix, Liz, and their university comrade Esther Breuer. In Margaret Drabble's words, it "picks up some of the characters and stories, while adding others"; and it presents them against the backdrop of a "post-imperial, post-industrial" 1980s England that bears a striking resemblance to its American counterpart - a public landscape in which our questions about how we live our lives, and what has happened to us, take on a private intensity.

10 DRABBLE, MARGARET. The Red Queen.
Harcourt, Inc., Orlando: 2004. 0151011060 / 9780151011063 First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Barbara Halliwell, on a grant at Oxford, receives an unexpected package - a memoir by a Korean crown princess, written more than two hundred years ago. A highly appropriate gift for her impending trip to Seoul. But from whom? The story she avidly reads on the plane turns out to be one of great intrigue as well as tragedy. The Crown Princess Hyegyong recounts in extraordinary detail the ways of the Korean court and confesses the family dramas that left her childless and her husband dead by his own hand. Perhaps it is the loss of a child that resonates so deeply with Barbara . . . but she has little time to think of such things, she has just arrived in Korea. She meets a certain Dr. Oo, and to her surprise and delight he offers to guide her to some of the haunts of the crown princess. As she explores the inner sanctums and the royal courts, Barbara begins to feel a strong affinity for everything related to the princess and her mysterious life. After a brief, intense, and ill-fated love affair, she returns to London. Is she ensnared by the events of the past week, of the past two hundred years, or will she pick up her life where she left it? A beautifully told and ingeniously constructed novel, this is Margaret Drabble at her best.
