Awake the courteous echo; the themes and prosody of Comus, Lycidas, and Paradise regained in world literature with translations of the major analogues by Watson Kirkconnell( Book )

12 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Miltonic reference works is the third and final volume in a trilogy dealing with Miltonic analogues. It complements the author's previous compendia of analogues, The Celestial Cycle (on Paradise Lost) and That Invincible Samson (on Samson Agonistes). Thirty-seven years of research in the libraries of the world have unearthed on impressive array of analogues of Comus, Lycidas, and Paradise Regained; and the more important of these are now made available in Kirkconnell's English translation in Awake the Courteous Echo. The book includes 39 analogues of Comus, 102 of Lycidas, and 25 of Paradise Regained. These analogues range from the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh to those of Milton's contemporaries. Dr. Kirkconnell's initial concern is not with source hunting, but with analogues as analogues, the Jonsonian masque, the pastoral elegy, and the brief epic. The subtlety, complexity, and powerful originality of Milton's art are here for the reader to enjoy. The major analogues in languages other than English are translated in both verse and prose. Both specialists and students of Milton will find this a fascinating and valuable study

An index of poets is furnished. (Rl)
Pan Tadeusz, or, The last foray in Lithuania by Adam Mickiewicz( Book )

17 editions published between 1962 and 1981 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Situated within the Russian partition, in the village of Soplicowo, Pan Tadeusz is about the country estate of the Soplica clan. Pan Tadeusz recounts the story of two feuding noble families, and the love between Tadeusz Soplica (the title character) of one family, and Zosia of the other. Another sub-plot involves a spontaneous revolt of the local inhabitants against the occupying Russian garrison. Since Mickiewicz published his poem as an exile in Paris, he was free of the Russian censors to talk openly about the occupation
Centennial tales and selected poems by Watson Kirkconnell( Book )

11 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An all-inclusive edition of the poetry of Watson Kirkonnell would run to some ten large volumes of original verse and translations. His original verse would fill two volumes the size of this one, and his translated verse—from Icelandic, Italian, Dutch, French, Magyar, Latin, Ukrainian and Polish—would fill 5,000 pages. No poet in the English-speaking tradition is more deeply grounded in world literature. The original poetry of Watson Kirkconnell has been primarily narrative in character: first, the twelve philosophically slanted books of his Spenserian epic, The Eternal Quest; then the seventeen vivid narratives in The Flying Bull, and Other Tales, a sort of Western echo of The Canterbury Tales; and finally the thirty narrative poems of his new Centennial Tales, many of which were written in 1964. These are framed about the history of Canada, and are written in honour of the nation's Centennial in 1967. They range from the coming of the first "Amerindians" from Asia about 30,000 B.C. to a possible atomic holocaust in A.D. 2000, and include poems on the Quebec Conference of 1864, the Vimy Memorial, the Italian Campaign and the Canadians in Cyprus. This volume also contains some lyrics from Dr. Kirkconnell's light opera, The Mod at Grand Pré, and the whole of his Greek-style drama, Let My People Go, with its setting in Egypt just before the Exodus and its issues in the present. The original poetry has been arranged in roughly the reverse of chronological order, while the translations are arranged according to the dates of publication
