The romantic revolt by Charles Edwyn Vaughan( Book )

28 editions published between 1907 and 2012 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive history of the Romantic movement in Europe from the late eighteenth through the early nineteenth centuries discusses philosophy and political economy in great detail. While Vaughan's definition of "romantic" (as opposed to "romanticism") --a "craving for the unfamiliar, the marvellous, the supernatural"--Is controversial, his treatment of the romantic movement in France and Germany is straightforward and interesting. He also brings unlikely figures such as William Cowper, Thomas Paine, and Edmund Burke into his discussion of the movement, though they are not technically considered romantic writers

The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster( Book )

19 editions published between 1896 and 1932 in English and Undetermined and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Webster's play "The Duchess of Malfi" is a violent play that presents a dark, disturbing portrait of the human condition... The title character is a widow with two brothers: Ferdinand and the Cardinal. In the play's opening act, the brothers try to persuade their sister not to seek a new husband. Her resistance to their wishes sets in motion a chain of secrecy, plotting, and violence. The relationship between Ferdinand and the Duchess is probably one of the most unsettling brother-sister relationships in literature. The play is full of both onstage killings and great lines. The title character is one of stage history's intriguing female characters; she is a woman whose desires lead her to defy familial pressure. Another fascinating and complex character is Bosola, who early in the play is enlisted to act as a spy. Overall, a compelling and well-written tragedy. --Michael J. Mazza at Amazon.com

Areopagitica and other prose works by John Milton( Book )

5 editions published between 1927 and 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An uncompromising defender of liberty as well as a sublime poet, John Milton published the "Areopagitica" in 1644, at the height of the English Civil War. The impetus arose from Parliament's Licensing Order, which censored all printed materials and ultimately led to arrests, book burnings, and other authoritarian abuses. Milton's polemic, strengthened by biblical and classical allusions, remains enduringly significant and ranks among the world's most eloquent defenses of the right to free speech. In addition to the "Areopagitica," this collection of Milton's most significant prose works includes "Of Education," a tract on educational reform; "Meditation Upon Divine Justice and The Death of King Charles the First," a rationale for the overthrow of the monarchy; "The Doctrine and Disciple of Divorce," in which the author urges the enactment of a virtually unheard-of reform allowing divorce for incompatibility and the right of remarriage; and "Autobiographical Extracts," featuring highlights from Milton's memoirs
