About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Narcissus and Other Poems by Carpenter, Edward.

Description:

Original dark green cloth, blocked in black and gilt. Very good. Carpenter's second book, and first collection of poetry, published at his own expense. Inscribed "William Ashmore from his friend the author, June 1878. "One poem, 'The Angel of Death -- and Life,' displays the germ of the idea which was to become Towards Democracy," d'Arch Smith, "Love in Earnest" Carpenter in "My Days and Dreams" wrote: "I could stand [Sheffield] no longer - and I fled away and took rooms at Chesterfield - dullest alas! of earthly places, but with a rather better climate. Perhaps I rather liked the quietude of Chesterfield - where it was hardly necessary to know anybody. There were good country walks out towards the moors, and once or twice I got as far as Barlow, half-way to Millthorpe - Of which place, needless to say, I had then never heard. I penetrated, during my stay in Chesterfield, into the cottage of a plasterer, a dear old man, S. Ashmore, and became familiar in his household - the only permanent alliance I made in Chesterfield" William (born 1860) was the son of plasterer Samuel and Lucy Ashmore; he became an architect and surveyor, and died in 1927. Colbeck oll. p. 118. He writes of "Narcissus" that he paid for its publication himself, received a few depreciatory notices in the press, had a few copies purchased by friends "and then it ceased to stir".

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1873 edition. Excerpt: . NARCISSUS. Once when the golden day had dawned and died, Narcissus, lily-cradled by the side Of silver-waved Cephissus, whose soft sheen Day-long divides his meadow-margins green, Was found by woodland nymphs. Him, for the sake Of his famed river-father--wont to slake Their thirst beside his fountains--and his own Exceeding beauty thus ere boyhood shown, Unto their forest haunts they nimbly took, And nurtured in a leaf-entangled nook. And day by day the boy in form and face Grew fairer, by the myriad waving grace Of slender arms encircled--grew to be More comely than the gods did e er decree To mortal man before. His beauty was The beauty of a tall flower in the grass Where-o er the golden hours glide one by one, Steeped in sweet slumbers of the golden sun, A dream-fed beauty: in those night-black eyes Lay undiscovered realms of rich surprise, Whereto the broad and overarching brows Were like the entrance of a stately house. And round about the lips a light smile ran That lingered there and would be gone a span, But never far. So fair Endymion showed To lonely-souled Selene when she glowed All night above him in his land of rest, Latmos below the sun-illumined West, And all her thin and silver beauty turned To burnished gold as o er his cloud-hung bed she yearned. Among the mountain gorges far withdrawn, Unvisited save by the feet of Dawn, Where lofty lone Parnassus lifts his peak Supreme in snow, speckless of stain or streak, -- A white and dazzling wonder, to defy The midnoon splendour of the deep blue sky-- There spreads a shelving lake. The valley there Lays out its sunny slopes to light and air Crowned with eternal forest: fir and pine With silver birch and maple intertwine Dense-clustered boughs, and companies of beech Their.
