The poetry of Hart Crane; a critical study by R. W. B Lewis( Book )

30 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the leading critics of our time, R.W.B. Lewis, charts the career of Hart Crane's imagination-of his vision, his rhetoric, and his craft. Crane, who has heretofore been assigned a relatively minor place in American letters, emerges from this rich, dense book as one of the finest poets in our language. Mr. Lewis traces the development of the theme which runs through all of Crane's poetry-the need for the visionary and loving transfiguration of the actual world-and claims that it is this theme which gives Crane's poetry its extraordinary consistency. Mr. Lewis also relates Crane's development as poet to the Anglo-American Romantic tradition and argues that Blake, Wordsworth, Keats, and Emerson are vital to an understanding of Crane's work. Originally published in 1967. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

Dante by R. W. B Lewis( Book )

38 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante traces the life and complex development - emotional, artistic, philosophical - of this supreme poet-historian, from his wanderings through Tuscan hills and splendid churches to his days as a young soldier fighting for democracy, and to his civic leadership and years of embittered exile from the city that would fiercely reclaim him a century later." "Lewis reveals the boy who first encounters the mythic Beatrice, the lyric poet obsessed with love and death, and the grand master of dramatic narrative and allegory, as well as his monumental search for ultimate truth in The Divine Comedy. It is in this masterpiece of self-discovery and redemption that Lewis finds Dante's autobiography - and the sum of all his shifting passions and epiphanies."--Jacket

The city of Florence : historical vistas and personal sightings by R. W. B Lewis( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this deeply personal and learned labor of love, R.W.B. Lewis, acclaimed chronicler of such great American cosmopolitans as Edith Wharton and Henry James, provides a new look at the glories of Florence, the smallish Tuscan city which has been a prime source for modern Western culture and which has also been his second home for the past fifty years. In chapters dense with historical detail and personal reflection, Lewis reconsiders the principal focal points of this much-beloved city - the Arno, the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, Santa Croce - and casts new light on Florence's cultural patrimony and civic legacy from the Middle Ages to the present. With a scholar's eye and a lover's passion, he invites us to share his vision of a city and the way of life it has engendered and inspired

The power and the glory by Graham Greene( Book )

9 editions published between 1970 and 1979 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central character, a Mexican Catholic priest, is a man fleeing for his life during an anti-clerical purge in one of the Southern states of Mexico. Profoundly religious, yet too weak to resist Whiskey, the priest alternately runs from the military authorities and risks his life to bring the comfort of the church to the fearful, browbeaten Mexican peasants. Considered by many as Graham Greene's masterpiece, the book has as its themes the battle between good and evil, corruption and betrayal and the agonies of guilt
Literary reflections : a shoring of images, 1960-1993 by R. W. B Lewis( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With both his range of interests and his breadth of perspective, R.W.B. Lewis has cut a broad swath through the world of letters over the decades. He has written on subjects from the Greek and Roman classics through modern European writers to such Americans as Ralph Ellison and Robert Penn Warren. He takes a special interest in the historical and biographical contests from which literature emerges. Here is the first collection of Lewis's essays in nearly thirty years, and it includes several never before published. As Lewis himself says, the volume represents "a retracing of cultural steps," as well as "the conflicting preoccupations of a humanist."
