An account of Corsica, the journal of a tour to that island ; and memoirs of Pascal Paoli by James Boswell( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first complete reprint of James Boswell's book on Corsica since the eighteenth century is enhanced by comprehensive annotation, textual apparatus, and a critical introduction. Boswell designed his text in two parts, first, an "Account" of Corsica, which gives a historical, political, socioeconomic, and cultural overview of the Corsican people, and second, the "Journal" of his tour to see the Corsican leader Pascal Paoli in 1765. This edition, unlike so many reprints of just the "Journal," allows the reader to appreciate Boswell's original design." "The young and adventuresome Boswell wanted to write a book that would swing public opinion, and perhaps the British government, to support the Corsicans in their struggle for independence. He was well aware that his English readers had but the haziest ideas about Corsica, gleaned from just snatches of news in the papers. The first part would therefore provide the context within which to understand and appreciate his account of his journey to and meeting with Paoli." "The complete text also illustrates aspects of Boswell that have received less attention than they might, namely, his sense of history, his political enthusiasm for national liberty, and his scholarship."--Jacket
A philosophical enquiry into the origin of our ideas of the sublime and beautiful by Edmund Burke( Book )

50 editions published between 1958 and 2008 in English and held by 1,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Philosophical Enquiry" is a study of the relationship between strong feelings and forms of art, that considers the inspired persuasiveness of certain kinds of writing alongside experience of the natural landscape, and is gradually being recognized as an important work of aesthetic theory. This eloquent and sometimes erotic book was long considered to be a piece of Burke's juvenilia, published when he was only 28. But it is a precursor of his later political writings, and clearly deals with a fashionable topic of intellectual preoccupation in the 18th-century. This work is also one of the first major works in European literature on the sublime, a subject that was later to fascinate thinkers from Kant and Coleridge in the 18th-century, to contemporary philosophers and literary critics. Adam Phillips has also edited Charles Lamb's "Selected Prose" and Walter Pater's "The Renaissance", as well as writing a study of his own entitled "Winnicott"

Johnson: the critical heritage by James T Boulton( Book )

11 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memoirs of a cavalier, or, A military journal of the wars in Germany and the wars in England from the year 1632 to the year 1648 : written threescore years ago by an English gentleman who served first in the army of Gustavus Adolphus, the glorious King of Sweden, till his death, and after that in the Royal Army of King Charles the First, from the beginning of the Rebellion to the end of that war by Daniel Defoe( Book )

45 editions published between 1972 and 1991 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Defoe's great talent as a writer was to speak in the voices of others. Such was the authenticity of this memoir of a 17th-century soldier of fortune that for over half a century it was considered to be genuine. The struggle of the narrator to turn his observations into facts and to make certain history out of his uncertain experiences combines with vivid descriptions of the battles of the Civil War to give the narrative its dramatic qualities

The language of politics in the age of Wilkes and Burke by James T Boulton( Book )

31 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the literature produced at the time of the controversy over Wilkes and the Middlesex elections and by the debate in England over the French Revolution. Writings by Junius, Johnson, Burke, Paine, Mackintosh, Wollstonecraft and Arthur Young among others are examined in order to identify and estimate the effectiveness of the persuasive techniques used by these writers to communicate ideas to their respective audiences. Godwin is also given a new assessment. A view of the extent and urgency over the French Revolution is provided by the chronological survey of replies to Bur
Late essays and articles by D. H Lawrence( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his last years D.H. Lawrence often wrote for newspapers; he needed the money, and clearly enjoyed the work. He also wrote several substantial essays during the same period. This meticulously edited collection brings together major essays such as Pornography and Obscenity and Lawrence's spirited Introduction to the volume of his paintings; a group of autobiographical pieces, two of which are published here for the first time; and the articles Lawrence wrote at the invitation of newspaper and magazine editors. There are thirty-nine items in total, thirty-five of them deriving from original manuscripts; all were written between 1926 and Lawrence's death in March 1930. They are ordered chronologically according to the date of composition; each is preceded by an account of the circumstances in which it came to be published. The volume is introduced by a substantial survey of Lawrence's career as a writer responding directly to public interests and concerns."--Jacket

The selected letters of D.H. Lawrence by D. H Lawrence( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lawrence's renowned creativity is conspicuous in his letters. Here in over 330 of them - many first published in the acclaimed seven-volume Cambridge Edition - are exemplified the remarkable variety and inventiveness he could command. He corresponded with the elite - aristocrats, fellow authors, painters, publishers and others from the intelligentsia; but not with these only. With equal concern he wrote to his sisters, a childhood friend suffering from tuberculosis, a Post Office clerk or an Italian servant-girl. Lawrence revelled in the act of communication, using a direct, unvarnished but invariably vivid style appropriate to each correspondent. His letters are notable for expressive and imaginative energy, wit and comedy, the tender and the tempestuous, combined with an extraordinary sensitivity to the natural world as well as to the human condition - and much besides. Few English letter-writers offer a comparable range of interest." "In his introductory essay James Boulton provides a rare critical assessment of Lawrence's epistolary achievement. In addition to the annotated texts of the letters, also included are a biographical list of Lawrence's correspondents; brief chronological and descriptive introductions to each section; and a full general index."--Jacket

News from abroad : letters written by British travellers on the Grand Tour, 1728-71 by James T Boulton( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a selection of private letters written to family and friends from a variety of people while they were on the Grand Tour (via Paris, through France and across the Alps via the terrifying Mount Cenis, to Rome) in the eighteenth century. The selection emphasises diversity, juxtaposing for example the letters of a conscientious young nobleman like Lyttelton with those of the excitable philanderer Boswell, or the well-travelled aristocratic lady, Caroline Lennox. While the travellers represented here follow much the same route in the pursuit of learning and pleasure, the Tour turns out to mean something quite different to each of them
