This second of a two-volume study of the literature of Shakespeare's time covers the dramatic works, leaving the verse and prose for another volume. Here, the authors consider the state of pre-Shakespearean drama in works by writers such as Kyd, Lyly, and Marlowe; then the plays of the Bard himself are discussed--including brief chapters on metrical developments, Shakespeare's use of prose within the plays, and some notes on his world view and on the First Folio. Finally, the authors evaluate the works of Shakespeare's later contemporaries and succesors: Jonson, Beaumont and Fletcher, Webster, and Middleton, among others

The surprising adventures of Baron Munchausen by Rudolf Erich Raspe( Book )

13 editions published between 1894 and 1933 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fantastic story of the semimythical folk hero who has delighted generations of readers all over the world Published anonymously in 1785, The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen defies logic, the laws of physics, and even rational thought. Karl Friedrich von Munchausen, also known as the Baron of Lies, was a retired army captain famed for his outlandish accounts of his war and hunting exploits. In this “memoir,” Munchausen regales readers with stories of dancing in the belly of a whale and riding on a horse cut in two. Other escapades include a balloon expedition to the moon, an encounter with the goddess Venus, a fiery battle with the Turkish army, and the experience of being swallowed up by a monstrous creature in the South Seas. It was not until 1824 that Rudolf Erich Raspe was revealed as the book’s author. Although most of Munchausen’s tales sprang from Raspe’s imagination, the author is reputed to have known the notorious baron personally. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices

In 1763, Tobias Smollett set sail from Folkestone to Boulogne. He would not return to England for two years, during which time he travelled extensively - and in a notoriously ill-tempered fashion - through much of France and Italy. Smollett, seemed 'determined to be pleased with nothing' and was 'sardonic, satirical and decidedly gloomy'. In Paris, everything had 'shrunk' and was twice as expensive as his last visit. Versailles was a 'dismal habitation'. In Rome, he felt that Michelangelo's "Last Judgement" resembled a mob; his inn in San Remo was more miserable than the worst alehou
