A bridge of children's books by Jella Lepman( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and German and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German journalist, author and translator Jella Lepman promotes children's literature in post-war Germany. In describing the goals of her mission, she wrote, "We are searching for ways to acquaint the children of Germany with children's books from all nations German children are practically without any books at all, once their literature from the Nazi period has been removed from circulation. Also, educators and publishers need books from the free world to orient and guide them. These children carry no responsibility for this war, and that is why books for them should be the first messengers of peace."

Selected writings by Charles Lamb( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Lamb (1775-1834), essayist, poet, humorist, critic and letter-writer, has an enduring reputation for his early Tales from Shakespeare (1807), written in collaboration with his sister Mary, and his Essays of Elia, first published in the London Magazine. This thematic selection of Lamb's writings - essays, dramatic criticism, verse and letters - not only demonstrates his literary achievements; it forms a self-portrait of the writer: generous, amused, and gregarious, finding imaginative escape from grim circumstances in the teeming life of London and the theatre. --Cover

Edward II; [a play] by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

3 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition, Charles Forker provides the most complete and detailed edition of Edward II ever published."--BOOK JACKET. "The introduction contains a fresh analysis of the first quarto (including new evidence of its original dating) and a reconsideration of the play's complex relation to the Shakespearean histories that preceded and followed it. Charles Forker offers a fascinating and far-reaching discussion of Marlowe's use of sources, and presents a new argument for the drama's five-act structure. He delves into the conflicting and controversial opinions concerning the genre and sexual politics of the play, and also includes the fullest record of the stage history ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET. "With meticulous scholarship, Forker has collated some forty-six editions (including the important, rare, and usually ignored editions of Broughton and Oxberry in 1818). The appendices provide substantive variants from the Broughton and Oxberry texts as well as generous extracts from the sources. This edition will stand as the definitive scholarly text for Marlowe's most provocative play for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
