Most widely held works by Alexander Dyce
Dr. Faustus from the quarto of 1616 by Christopher Marlowe ( )
10 editions published between 1926 and 2008 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classic Play. Faustus dreams of knowledge and power, hece his blaspheming, his sense of the loss of God, his agonized despair. This is the gist of the play. The other people have virtually no character, and no function save to help him towards good or evil
The poetical works of Mark Akenside by Mark Akenside ( Book )
61 editions published between 1800 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Akenside's fascination with the imagination, its characteristics and functions, resulted in an intriguing and influential blend of the poetic and the philosophical in his longer poems, The Pleasures of Imagination (1744) and The Pleasures of the Imagination (1772). The earlier work explores the then new subject of aesthetics in greater detail than it had ever been explored before, presenting various original insights and arguments. Yet it would be wrong to see the poem as merely a versified philosophical treatise; its complex structure offers satisfactions beyond those of sequential logic, and the examples cited to illustrate the central ideas are imbued with considerable vigor and clarity. As products of, and contributors to, the eighteenth-century enthusiasm for aesthetics, Akenside's longer poems are captivating examples of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century experiment in developing the philosophical poem into a major literary form. It is for this reason above all others that they are valued by Coleridge and the writers of the next generation." "Because of the comparative obscurity into which Akenside's works fell after the demise of the long philosophical poem in the latter part of the nineteenth century, they have not by and large attracted the attention of modern bibliographers. In this edition numerous bibliographical and textual puzzles presented by his poems are solved for the first time. The apparatus, meanwhile, demonstrates the full extent of the poet's urge to revise - an urge that extended from the wholesale rewriting of some poems to subtle alterations of textual minutiae, showing a mind and an ear alive to nuances of meaning and intonation."--Jacket
