"This book is the history of Auden's poems, and of the private and public events that went into them, from the time he moved from England to America in 1939 until his death in 1973. It completes the story begun in Edward Mendelson's Early Auden, and is even more revelatory about Auden's thought, life, and work." "Later Auden links the many changes in Auden's intellectual, emotional, religious, and erotic life with his shifting public role as a representative of political causes, as a uniformed researcher working with the U.S. Army in postwar Germany, as a public moralist, and above all as a poet."--BOOK JACKET.

Lewis Carroll by Lewis Carroll ( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 937 libraries worldwide
With fantastic characters and enchanting, rhythmic, and sometimes nonsense language, Lewis Carroll created magical wonderlands. In his worlds, many things appear upside down and inside out, the rules of logic just don't apply, and everything pompous gets cut down to size. No surprise, then, that children love to visit there, sliding down the rabbit hole with Alice, battling the dreaded Jabberwock, or hunting for that mythical Snark. Carroll's classic works have never lost their fascination, and these 26 selections, along with Eric Copeland's savagely funny paintings that bring his fantastic realms to life, will become favorites with young readers. They'll also appreciate uncovering the true stories behind each tale and learning that many of Carroll's poems mocked the most popular--and humorless--verses of his period. Included are many beloved excerpts from the Alice books, as well as "The Walrus and the Carpenter," "Father William," and others, all especially wonderful to read aloud! Particularly beneficial for reading along with children are notes on unfamiliar words and recurrent themes, a word glossary, and a biography of the inscrutable and complex Carroll--aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
The things that matter : what seven classic novels have to say about the stages of life by Edward Mendelson ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 899 libraries worldwide
An exploration of how seven of the greatest English novels of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries portray the essential experiences of life. For Mendelson--a professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University--these classic novels tell life stories that are valuable to readers who are thinking about the course of their own lives. Looking beyond theories to the individual intentions of the authors and taking into consideration their lives and times, Mendelson examines the sometimes contradictory ways in which the novels portray such major passages of life as love, marriage, and parenthood.--From publisher description.
