A critical guide to the metaphysical poets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a reaction against Elizabethan-period poetry, 17th century English poets such as John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, and Andrew Marvell began writing in a new style. Although derisively dubbed "metaphysical" because of its unseemly--that is, intellectual--nature, metaphysical poetry soon became appreciated for its remarkable blend of emotion, as evidenced by complex conceits, unconventional imagery, and the avoidance of smooth and regular meter. Daniela Havenstein of Oxford University and Judith Aldridge of the University of Central England interpret and analyze some of Donne's best-known poems, along with the works of other metaphysical poets

The post-impressionists( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt was an unlikely artistic rebel, but in early 20th century Vienna, the work of this mild-mannered painter created a scandal in his home city. Having enjoyed a conventionally successful early career, Klimt's art changed radically in his mid-thirties. He became leader of the Vienna Secession, a group of avant-garde artists who would change the conservative Viennese art scene forever. Klimt's own work became increasingly erotic in nature. His deeply sensual portraits of Viennese women still make a powerful impression upon the modern viewer"--
