Shakespeare wisdom and wit by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genius of Shakespeare is most apparent in the Stratford poet's unique power of expression -- in his rare capacity to represent human truth with such intensity of felling, such depth of understanding, and such felicity of phrase as to make his words an intricate part of English speechways. The captivating magic of Shakespeare's language lies in its superb qualities of spontaneity, of universality, and of perennial freshness that 'age cannot wither, nor custom stale.' ... The present sampling of the Bard's wit and wisdom is necessarily limited. Modern readers will want to take the advice of the compilers of the First Folio, and read the complete texts of the poems and plays, again and again. Shakespeare never grows old, for as Ben Jonson so wisely said, 'He was not of an age, but for all time!'"

Selected poems by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1982 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Henry Wadsworth Longfellow died on March 24, 1882, at the age of seventy-five, he was the most celebrated poet in the English-speaking world, Not only was he America's first professional poet, but, after his death, he was the first American to have his bust placed in the Poets' Corner at Westminster Abbey in London, England. Longfellow was an unsurpassed master in his use of musical language. Few poets could match his sonorous and rhythmically sensual use of words. His poetry is rarely abstract, and the vivid, descriptive imagery and the narrative form of verse he favored make it pleasing to read and follow. His subject matter touched on American life and its verities, be it legendary heroism as in "Paul Revere's Ride" or in the honest, upright, and hardworking man of "The Village Blacksmith." This collection brings together Longfellow's best and most famous poems, providing a complete overview of his versatile and multifaceted genius. All the classic Longfellow selections, including "A Psalm of Life," "The Children's Hour," and "The Day is Done," are here, as well as lesser-known but equally worthy poems, like "The Cross of Snow," a sonnet written in memory of his second wife, who died tragically in a fire. Also included, in their entirety, are two long narrative masterpieces, Evangeline and The Courtship of Miles Standish. This book features a deluxe cover, ribbon marker, top stain, and decorative endpapers with a nameplate
