About this Item: iUniverse, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This essay offers a radical view of the post-Renaissance, Western literary scene inasmuch as Rudolf Steiner s Anthroposophy bears a relation to it, principally through his Mystery Plays. A number of major authors are highlighted as having an intrinsic connection with the Anthroposophical revelation-notably T.S. Eliot, and especially S.T. Coleridge. The prospect of a new cultural poetic for the future is outlined in connection especially with these two major figures of English critical-poetic tradition. Other authors that are considered include Wordsworth, Goethe, Lawrence, Yeats; Graves, Hughes; Milton, Swift, and Blake; Strindberg, Hemingway and Beckett. Steiner s Plays were never intended as Literature as we know that discipline today, but they provide a singular point of view from which the idea of Literature can be re-evaluated and new directions set forth that represent a transformed prospect for Literature in the future. Some of our most distinguished authors of the past are seen in a new light, as if it had been their struggle to reach out to the possibilities Steiner s Plays bring forth.

About this Item: BLOODAXE BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Basil Bunting is one of the most important British poets of the 20th century. Acknowledged since the 1930s as a major figure in Modernist poetry, first by Pound and Zukofsky and later by younger writers, the Northumbrian master poet had to wait over 30 years before his genius was finally recognised in Britain - in 1966, with the publication of BRIGGFLATTS , which Cyril Connolly called the finest long poem to have been published in England since T.S. Eliot s Four Quartets . Bunting called BRIGGFLATTS his autobiography . It is a complex work, drawing on many elements of his life, experience and knowledge, and features the saint Cuthbert and the warrior king Eric Bloodaxe as two opposing aspects of the Northumbrian - and his - character. Its structural models include the sonata form (and Scarlatti s music in particular) and the latticework of the Lindisfarne Gospels, while thematically it recalls Wordsworth s Prelude . Bunting wrote that Poetry, like music, is to be heard. His own readings of his own work are essential listening for a full appreciation of his highly musical poetry. This new edition includes a CD with an audio recording Bunting made of BRIGGFLATTS in 1967 and a DVD of Peter Bell s 1982 film portrait of Bunting. As well as his own notes to the poem, the book includes his seminal essay on sound and meaning in poetry, The Poet s Point of View (1966). All his poetry is available in Complet Poems (Bloodaxe Books, 2000). Seller Inventory # AA99781852248260

About this Item: Signet/New American Library, 1969. paperback. Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. 1st edition. New York. 1969. March 1969. Signet/New American Library. 1st Signet Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. Introduction By Alfred Kazin.Original Illustrations By Reginald Marsh. 557 pages. paperback. CQ446. FROM THE PUBLISHER - America in the boom years of the twenties is the setting of THE BIG MONEY. Hog - wild material prosperity rules the land and cripples the national life. Amid a vivid, fevered atmosphere of big business and bootleg booze, tinsel glamour and grinding injustice, Dos Passos guides his characters - a young mid - Westerner destroyed by his own success, an amoral trollop - turned - Hollywood star, an advertising boy - wonder on a careening treadmill of corruption, an idealistic girl discovering the facts of life - toward destinies that make a mockery of the American dream. The author's wonderful multiplicity of narrative techniques, his swift cross - cutting of points of view, never were used with greater effect than in this novel that Malcolm Cowley termed 'a furious and sombre poem, written in a mood of revulsion even more powerful than that which T. S. Eliot expressed in 'The Waste Land.' It stands as the climactic novel of a trilogy Alfred Kazin calls 'an epic of democracy' charged with 'the energy of disenchantment.' THE 42ND PARALLEL and NINETEEN NINETEEN, the first and second novels of U.S.A., are also available in Signet Classic editions. Each can be read as a separate novel. Together they form a landmark achievement in American fiction. inventory #32835. Seller Inventory # z32835

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Romola (1862-63) is a historical novel by George Eliot set in the fifteenth century, and is a deep study of life in the city of Florence from an intellectual, artistic, religious, and social point of view. [citation needed] It first appeared in fourteen parts published in Cornhill Magazine from July 1862 to August 1863 . The story takes place amidst actual historical events during the Italian Renaissance, and includes in its plot several notable figures from Florentine history.Florence, 1492: Christopher Columbus has sailed towards the New World, and Florence has just mourned the death of its legendary leader, Lorenzo de Medici. In this setting, a Florentine trader meets a shipwrecked stranger, who introduces himself as Tito Melema, a young Italianate-Greek scholar. Tito becomes acquainted with several other Florentines, including Nello the barber and a young girl named Tessa. He is also introduced to a blind scholar named Bardo de Bardi, and his daughter Romola. As Tito becomes settled in Florence, assisting Bardo with classical studies, he falls in love with Romola. However, Tessa falls in love with Tito, and the two are married in a mock ceremony. Tito learns from Fra Luca, a Dominican monk, that his adoptive father has been forced into slavery and is asking for assistance. Tito introspects, comparing filial duty to his new ambitions in Florence, and decides that it would be futile to attempt to rescue his adoptive father. This paves the way for Romola and Tito to marry. Fra Luca shortly thereafter falls ill and before his death he speaks to his estranged sister, Romola. Ignorant of Romola s plans, Fra Luca warns her of a vision foretelling a marriage between her and a mysterious stranger who will bring pain to her and her father. After Fra Luca s death, Tito dismisses the warning and advises Romola to trust him. Tito and Romola become betrothed at the end of Carnival, to be married at Easter after Tito returns from a visit to Rome. etc. Christian Bernhard, Freiherr von Tauchnitz (August 25, 1816 Schleinitz, present day Unterkaka - August 11, 1895 Leipzig), the founder of the firm of Bernhard Tauchnitz, was the nephew of the first-mentioned. Christian s father died when he was young and his uncle played an important part in his development. His printing and publishing firm was started at Leipzig (Germany) on February 1, 1837.Bernhard started the Collection of British and American Authors in 1841, a reprint series familiar to anglophone travellers on the continent of Europe. These inexpensive paperbound editions, a direct precursor to mass-market paperbacks, were begun in 1841, and eventually ran to over 5,000 volumes. In 1868 he began the Collection of German Authors, followed in 1886 by the Students Tauchnitz Editions. Seller Inventory # APC9781533408198

About this Item: Emereo Classics, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.T.S. Eliot called The Moonstone the first and greatest English detective novel. The novel is worthy of such praise. The story begins with a brief prologue describing how the famous yellow diamond was captured during a military campaign in India by a British officer in 1799. The action moves quickly to 1848 England, where, according to the British officers will, the diamond has been given to one of the soldiers young relatives, Rachel Verinder. Yet only hours after the diamond arrives at the Verinder estate, it disappears. Was it stolen by a relative? A servant? And who are these three Indian men who keep hanging around the estate? The Moonstone is told from the point of view of several characters. The first portion of the tale is told by Gabriel Betteredge, house steward of the Verinder estate, who has been working for the family practically his entire life. Betteredges account holds the readers interest as he introduces the main players and the crime itself. The next account, by distant Verinder relative Miss Clack, is humorous and somewhat important. But after Miss Clacks account, things really take off at breakneck speed. Readers who latch onto the T.S. Eliot quote expecting a modern detective tale will be sorely disappointed. You arent going to see anything resembling Jeffrey Deaver, James Patterson, Sue Grafton, or even Mary Higgins Clark. You also wont see Mickey Spillane, Dashiel Hammett, or Raymond Chandler. Nor will you see Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, or Martha Grimes. You wont even see Arthur Conan Doyle. But you WILL see the novel that influenced them all. Youll also see something else. Something that modern mystery/detective writers have for the most part lost. Characters. Oh sure, modern writers have characters, but for the most part, the reader only learns enough about the character to forward the plot. In our time, plot is King. When The Moonstone was published (1868), one of the novels attractions was its characters. Collins has painted each of these characters so well that the reader feels that they know not only how they look, but their mannerisms, their movements, how they think, and their view of the world they live in. That type of character development is seriously lacking today, not from all writers, but from far too many. Put modern mystery/detective stories out of your head. Then read The Moonstone as you would any other novel. Get lost in the atmosphere and the characters. Immerse yourself. Most of all, enjoy. Reading The Moonstone is like eating at a fine restaurant after months of fast food. When its over, you just want to sit back in your favorite chair and say, Its nice to know that the finer things are still available. Yes they are. Treat yourself to this gourmet book.

About this Item: Emereo Classics, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. T.S. Eliot called The Moonstone the first and greatest English detective novel. The novel is worthy of such praise. The story begins with a brief prologue describing how the famous yellow diamond was captured during a military campaign in India by a British officer in 1799. The action moves quickly to 1848 England, where, according to the British officers will, the diamond has been given to one of the soldiers young relatives, Rachel Verinder. Yet only hours after the diamond arrives at the Verinder estate, it disappears. Was it stolen by a relative? A servant? And who are these three Indian men who keep hanging around the estate? The Moonstone is told from the point of view of several characters. The first portion of the tale is told by Gabriel Betteredge, house steward of the Verinder estate, who has been working for the family practically his entire life. Betteredges account holds the readers interest as he introduces the main players and the crime itself. The next account, by distant Verinder relative Miss Clack, is humorous and somewhat important. But after Miss Clacks account, things really take off at breakneck speed. Readers who latch onto the T.S. Eliot quote expecting a modern detective tale will be sorely disappointed. You arent going to see anything resembling Jeffrey Deaver, James Patterson, Sue Grafton, or even Mary Higgins Clark. You also wont see Mickey Spillane, Dashiel Hammett, or Raymond Chandler. Nor will you see Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, or Martha Grimes. You wont even see Arthur Conan Doyle. But you WILL see the novel that influenced them all. Youll also see something else. Something that modern mystery/detective writers have for the most part lost. Characters. Oh sure, modern writers have characters, but for the most part, the reader only learns enough about the character to forward the plot. In our time, plot is King. When The Moonstone was published (1868), one of the novels attractions was its characters. Collins has painted each of these characters so well that the reader feels that they know not only how they look, but their mannerisms, their movements, how they think, and their view of the world they live in. That type of character development is seriously lacking today, not from all writers, but from far too many. Put modern mystery/detective stories out of your head. Then read The Moonstone as you would any other novel. Get lost in the atmosphere and the characters. Immerse yourself. Most of all, enjoy. Reading The Moonstone is like eating at a fine restaurant after months of fast food. When its over, you just want to sit back in your favorite chair and say, Its nice to know that the finer things are still available. Yes they are. Treat yourself to this gourmet book.

About this Item: BLOODAXE BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Basil Bunting is one of the most important British poets of the 20th century. Acknowledged since the 1930s as a major figure in Modernist poetry, first by Pound and Zukofsky and later by younger writers, the Northumbrian master poet had to wait over 30 years before his genius was finally recognised in Britain - in 1966, with the publication of BRIGGFLATTS , which Cyril Connolly called the finest long poem to have been published in England since T.S. Eliot s Four Quartets . Bunting called BRIGGFLATTS his autobiography . It is a complex work, drawing on many elements of his life, experience and knowledge, and features the saint Cuthbert and the warrior king Eric Bloodaxe as two opposing aspects of the Northumbrian - and his - character. Its structural models include the sonata form (and Scarlatti s music in particular) and the latticework of the Lindisfarne Gospels, while thematically it recalls Wordsworth s Prelude . Bunting wrote that Poetry, like music, is to be heard. His own readings of his own work are essential listening for a full appreciation of his highly musical poetry. This new edition includes a CD with an audio recording Bunting made of BRIGGFLATTS in 1967 and a DVD of Peter Bell s 1982 film portrait of Bunting. As well as his own notes to the poem, the book includes his seminal essay on sound and meaning in poetry, The Poet s Point of View (1966). All his poetry is available in Complet Poems (Bloodaxe Books, 2000). Seller Inventory # AA99781852248260

About this Item: iUniverse, Inc. Paperback. Condition: New. 50 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.4in.This essay offers a radical view of the post-Renaissance, Western literary scene inasmuch as Rudolf Steiners Anthroposophy bears a relation to it, principally through his Mystery Plays. A number of major authors are highlighted as having an intrinsic connection with the Anthroposophical revelation-notably T. S. Eliot, and especially S. T. Coleridge. The prospect of a new cultural poetic for the future is outlined in connection especially with these two major figures of English critical-poetic tradition. Other authors that are considered include Wordsworth, Goethe, Lawrence, Yeats; Graves, Hughes; Milton, Swift, and Blake; Strindberg, Hemingway and Beckett. Steiners Plays were never intended as Literature as we know that discipline today, but they provide a singular point of view from which the idea of Literature can be re-evaluated and new directions set forth that represent a transformed prospect for Literature in the future. Some of our most distinguished authors of the past are seen in a new light, as if it had been their struggle to reach out to the possibilities Steiners Plays bring forth.

About this Item: HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. What if Christopher Marlowe staged his own death, fled to the Continent and went on to write the works we now attribute to Shakespeare? About anyone so great as Shakespeare, it is probable that we can never be right; and if we can never be right, it is better that we should from time to time change our way of being wrong. T. S. Eliot Mark Twain likened writing the biography of Shakespeare to reconstructing the skeleton of a brontosaurus - using nine bones and six hundred barrels of plaster of Paris . We work with a handful of facts and a pile of conjecture. All biographies of Shakespeare, from the wayward to the academic, use the same few-score hard facts kneaded together with legend, then leavened by a dash of zeitgeist and a large dollop of author s imagination. Poems and plays are plundered for booty, even by those who profess scepticism as to the inferences that can be drawn about the life from the work. Like statistics, quotations can be turned to very different facts. This book is not, of course, an attempt to prove that Christopher Marlowe staged his own death, fled to the continent, and went on to write the work attributed to Shakespeare. It, however, playfully assumes that as its starting point, and swings the old bones around, viewing them from a different angle to build a different brontosaurus. It does so in a spirit of fun, and with the intention of a little saucy iconoclasm. Shakespeare s works are unassailable, and will survive any amount of subversion, but by playing with our commonplace history, Rodney Bolt argues that the quasi-religious idol the man has become is perhaps in need of the efforts of a wicked woodworm. Where other writers have looked at the evidence and deduced a story, Bolt has imagined a story, then supported it with the same sparse evidence. At this distance, the difference between deduction and speculation is paper thin. The point of the take is not only to question our view of history and the validity of biography, but to show how people travelled, how cultures crossed, and how art gets made.
