De rerum natura = The poem on nature by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The De Rurum Natura of Lucretius (99BC-55BC) is one of the great books of the world, a lucid explanation of physical phenomena that develops into a majestic vision of the ultimate nature of the universe." "Lucretius' observations of the particularities of the world remain alive across the centuries. We follow his enquiring, scientific mind as he investigates the workings of mirror images, thunderstorms and magnetism, how we walk and what sleep is. Overarching all is Lucretius' belief in a universe of eternally recurring elements."--Back cover

Contes et nouvelles en vers by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though they were first written over 300 years ago, this is the first complete English translation of Jean de La Fontaine's comedic classic Contes et nouvelles en vers. Both sexually charged and wickedly funny, La Fontaine's Tales will surprise readers who know him only from his work on fables for children. Though the writing is more suggestive than vulgar, it still has the power to shock readers unprepared for the darkness that inhabits these poems. Included are nearly seventy illustrations dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, many of them rare, as well as extensive commentary by the editor."--Jacket

Selected poems by C. H Sisson( Book )

13 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C. H. Sisson's Selected Poems presents a half century's work by the writer deemed "England's finest living poet" by the London Times. Sisson's poems are characterized by a mastery of speech rhythms and imagery learned from Eliot, Pound, and T. E. Hulme. Serious and highly charged, they are steeped in literary tradition (Sisson is one of the great translators of Dante, Horace, Lucretius, and Virgil), and they draw on Sisson's remarkable knowledge of history and culture. Starting with poems written on a troopship and ending on home ground in Somerset, England, Selected Poems provides a comprehensive selection of Sisson's work, including "Tristan," a sequence written in the poet's eighty-first year."--BOOK JACKET

Collected poems by C. H Sisson( Book )

20 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When C.H. Sisson was 20, he gave up writing poems. He began once more in his 30s under the stress of war-time, stationed in India. Verse came intermittently, exiguously; the bulk of his early writing in translation ('fishing in other men's waters' he calls it), prose essays and fiction. In the 1960s his poems began to appear. The London Zoo - his first major book - was published in 1961 when the poet was 47. Since that time his place has grown secure: he is one of the few direct English heirs of the great Modernists, a poet who grounds the enormous energies of that movement in English la

The raven : poems and essays on poetry by Edgar Allan Poe( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<Div>Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is the poet of the night world, of the inexplicable, the uncanny. His poems do not analyse, they do not explain: they exist with the intensity of hallucinations. In the breathtakingly seductive beauty of &#x91;To Helen' &#x96; &#x91;Like those Nicean barks of yore, / that gently o'er a perfumed sea...', or the claustrophobic horror of &#x91;The Raven', Poe offers haunting alternative realities, as strange &#x96; and strangely familiar &#x96; as our dreams and nightmares. Yet Poe was more than a poet of American gothic. He was translated by Baudelaire and Mallarme, becoming a key figure in
