Principles of literary criticism by I. A Richards( Book )

332 editions published between 1924 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 3,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why one opinion upon literature or life is not as good as another, why some experiences are worth while and others not, why poetry and art are important, are the chief questions discussed in this book. Such topics are often treated without sufficient attention to the distorting influence of language. The author's Poetics has been based upon a study of the emotional use of words, and through this approach a clear answer to many perplexing problems is forthcoming. A whole generation of critics, teachers and students of literature has found this book of extraordinary value

The philosophy of rhetoric by I. A Richards( Book )

72 editions published between 1936 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our communication is limitedby misunderstanding. Rhetoric, as Professor Richards defines it, is the study of misunderstanding and its remedies. The conventional rules of the old rhetoric and the formulations of scientific language have narrow application to conversational speech; Professor Richard's definition of rhetoric is based on a practical question: how do words work in discourse? To answer this question, he examines the interaction of words with each other and with their contexts, showing how a continual synthesis of meaning, or "principle of metaphor", gives life to discussion. It is through comprehension of the way meaning changes in discourse that we can better control and animate our use of words, and so decrease misunderstanding. -- Product Description

Plato's Republic by Plato( Book )

18 editions published between 1966 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest works of philosophy, political theory, and literature ever produced, Plato's Republic has shaped Western thought for thousands of years and remains as relevant today as when it was written during the fourth century B.C. Republic begins by posing a central question: "What is justice, and why should we be just, especially when the wicked often seem happier and more successful?" For Plato, the answer lies with the ways people, groups, and institutions organize and behave. A brilliant inquiry into the problems of constructing the perfect state and the roles education, the arts, family, and religion should play in our lives, Republic employs picturesque settings, sharply outlined characters, and conversational dialogue to drive home the philosopher's provocative arguments

Ivor Richards had a far-reaching effect on critical appreciation, and methods of teaching literature. This selection concentrates on his thought, and on his influence on writers and thinkers, rather than his biography, though the letters reveal also his many friendships. The first letter included here dates from the winter of 1911, to his mother; by the early '20s the first of many letters to T.S. Eliot appears; and there are others to Masefield, Empson, Charles Ogden, with whom he founded Basic English, and the painter Wyndham Lewis. The selection covers the whole of his adult life, ending in the year of his death
