"Marriage, the Church of England, and the British university system all come under criticism in a story about two cousins who love each other and want to improve their lot in life." "In this haunting love story, a couple who have each fled a previous marriage find love and fulfillment together, only to have tragedy overwhelm them." "Both having left earlier marriages, Jude Fawley and Sue Brideshead find happiness in their relationship. Ironically, when tragedy tests their union, it is Sue, the modern emancipated woman, who proves unequal to the challenge."

Some tales of La Fontaine by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 321 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

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 is 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 landscapes, especially those of Somerset, and reconciles the legacies of Eliot and Pound on the one hand and of Hardy and Edward Thomas on the other. The epigraph of his 1984 Collected Poems, which this volume updates and corrects, was from John Gower: O gentile Engleterre, a toi j'escrits. --Carcanet

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

8 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 30 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
