Most widely held works by Maximillian E Novak
Enchanted ground : reimagining John Dryden by Jayne Elizabeth Lewis( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 1,384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the time of his death in 1700, John Dryden was acknowledged as England's greatest writer, his reputation rivalling even that of Shakespeare." "In Enchanted Ground, Jayne Lewis and Maximillian E. Novak have brought together many of the world's experts on Dryden, and their essays reflect a range of new, distinctly twenty-first-century views of him. The book is divided into two sections. The first explores Dryden's role as a public poet who presented himself as the voice of the restored Stuart court. The second part considers Dryden's relationship to the theatrical arts and music and his connection to the literary past."--Jacket
The age of projects( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Projecting Age' was a term the English novelist Daniel Defoe used to describe the end of the seventeenth century. This term could just as easily be used, however, to describe the period known as the 'Long Eighteenth Century' (1660-1789). The Age of Projects uses the notion of the project as a key to understanding the massive social, cultural, political, literary, and scientific transitions that occurred in Europe during this time." "The essays in this collection examine an array of projects - fraudulent, grandiose, altruistic, and idealistic - that reveal the period's preoccupation with retrieving the past, improving the present, and envisioning the future. Examining such varied topics as Sir Francis Bacon's quest for human longevity, Jonathan Swift's satire on the possibility of a computer, and Gottfried Leibniz's effort to build one, this volume provides unique insight into the often exuberant, sometimes conflicting, ambitions and aspirations characteristic of the era."--Jacket

Daniel Defoe : master of fictions : his life and ideas by Maximillian E Novak( Book )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daniel Defoe: Master of Fictions is the first biography to view Defoe's complex life through the angle of vision that is most important to us as modern readers - his career as a writer. From his earliest collection of brief stories, which he presented to his future wife under the sobriquet Bellmour, to his Compleat English Gentleman, left unpublished at his death, Defoe was pre-eminently a creator of fictions. This life gives us, for the first time, a full understanding of the thought and personal experience that went into such great works as Crusoe, Moll Flanders, and Roxana."--Jacket
