By discussing several different kinds of literature, this work of literary criticism shows how inadequate criticism can be when it ignores the old-fashioned idea of 'character', and the relation between the author and his creation -- the relation of love -- which makes the independent character not only possible, but essential to the full effect of great literature

The power of delight : a lifetime in literature : essays, 1962-2002 by John Bayley( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Bayley swept to international fame with the publication of his memoirs about his late wife, the novelist Iris Murdoch, and the subsequent film of them, but for decades he has been known to readers the world over as perhaps the shrewdest and subtlest literary critic now writing. The Power of Delight gathers together for the first time the cream of a lifetime's work."--Jacket

Housman's poems by John Bayley( Book )

16 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Housman's three collections of poems, the third published posthumously, have remained continuously popular, they have not received much serious critical attention. John Bayley makes good the omission in this thorough and comprehensive re-appraisal of the whole oeuvre, placing Housman's achievement in the context of the poetry of his own time and of more recent European and American poetry. Close analysis and comparison with other poets--Hardy, Frost, Edward Thomas, Larkin, and Paul Celan--prove illuminating in relation to a poet who has usually been considered something of an odd man out, and even an anachronism in the modern era. Professor Bayley explores and explains the continuing appeal of the poetry to present-day readers, and the nature of the craftsmanship and psychology which lie behind its deceptive simplicities. The book will be a valuable introduction to Housman's achievement for the specialist and the poetry-lover alike."--Jacket
