100 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to twentieth-century poetry in English by Ronald P Draper( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This critical survey of modern poetry from Thomas Hardy to Seamus Heaney considers both the self-consciously revolutionary innovations of Modernism and more traditional developments, taking into account the extent to which 'English' can no longer be equated solely with England." "Scots, Welsh and Irish poetry, and poetry from Commonwealth countries such as Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean, are recognised as equally important aspects of the diversity that characterises modern poetry in English. In particular, the contributions of North American poets such as Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Wallace Stevens and Robert Lowell receive the major emphasis that their achievements and extensive influence warrant. Attention is also given to important new perspectives in the work of women poets such as Adrienne Rich, Sylvia Plath and Elizabeth Bishop." "This uniquely wide-ranging textbook will be of interest to all readers and writers of poetry, whether reading for pleasure or as part of their literary studies."--Jacket
Shakespeare, the comedies by Ronald P Draper( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's comedies are among the world's great celebrations of love and romance. But for Shakespeare, the trials and tribulations of love become a subject for both laughter and sympathy, presented in a dramatic form that combines such diverse elements as high poetic imagination, probingly intelligent criticism and uproariously farcical popular entertainment."
