Most widely held works by D. G James
The romantic comedy by D. G James( Book )

58 editions published between 1947 and 1980 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay attempts a history of English Romanticism in terms of the treatment of mythology, or of divine story, by Blake, Shelley, Keats, Coleridge, and Newman. Seen in this aspect, the history of Romanticism is a movement from Blake's free myth-making to Shelley's and Keat's adaptation of Greek mythology, and thence to Coleridge's and Newman's acceptance of Christian 'story' and of the authority that goes along with it

The first part of King Henry IV by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This updated edition offers a theatrical perspective on the origins of Shakespeare's The First Part of King Henry IV and the history of its interpretation. The introduction clarifies the play's surprising, de-centred dramatic structure, questioning the dominant assumption that the drama focuses on the education of Prince Hal. It calls attention to the effects of civil war upon a broad range of relationships. Falstaff's unpredictable vitality is explored, together with important contemporary values of honour, friendship, festivity and reformation." "Lexical glosses of obscure, ambiguous or archaic meanings make the rich wordplay accessible. The notes also provide a thorough commentary on Shakespeare's transformation of his sources (particularly Holinshed's Chronicles) and suggest alternative stagings. This updated edition contains a new introductory section by Katharine A. Craik, which describes recent stage, film and critical interpretations, and an updated reading list."--Jacket
