Rebels, pretenders & imposters by Clive Cheesman ( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Throughout history individuals have pictured themselves becoming emperor, king, queen or president. Some have proved successful, others not, while some were pure fantasists. Many produced coins, banknotes, stamps and heraldic devices as proof of the status they claimed. In exploring the issues surrounding political legitimacy, this book brings together evidence for an amazing variety of would-be sovereigns and phantom countries, rebel states and royal impostors, ranging from ancient to modern times and from the Orient to the New World." "The personalities, their individual stories and the images they employed are fascinating in themselves, but set in a wider context they also demonstrate the changing tradition of pretence and rebellion. The authors examine fundamental concepts of loyalty and group identity in a timely commentary on the nature of legitimate power and established sovereignty. Their analysis reveals the convenient fictions, collective myths and pseudo-histories inherent even today in the construction and maintenance of a dynasty or modern nation."--BOOK JACKET
Classical love poetry by Jonathan Williams ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Love is a universal theme in Classical poetry. From the first stirrings of passion to the torture of unrequited love, from the lifelong bond between husband and wife to the pain of being left behind, the subjects differ little from our preoccupations with love and romance today." "This collection takes the best from Greek and Roman poetry, with excerpts from Homer, Sappho, Catullus, Virgil and Ovid, to name but a few, and illustrates them with some of the finest examples of Classical and later European art. With a brief introduction to the poems, and a short biographical note about each poet, this is the perfect introduction to the treasures of Classical literature and art."--BOOK JACKET
