The English hymn : a critical and historical study by J. R Watson( )

English poetry of the Romantic period, 1789-1830 by J. R Watson( Book )

65 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in English and French and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On its first appearance English Poetry of the Romantic Period was widely praised as on of the best introductions to the subject. This edition includes updated material in the light of recent work in Romanticism and Romantic poetry. The book discusses the concerns that linked the Romantic poets, from their responses to the political and social upheavals around them to their interest in the poet's visionary and prophetic role. It includes helpful and authoritative discussions of figures such as Blake, Clare, Coleridge, Crabbe, Keats, Scott, Shelley and Wordsworth
An annotated anthology of hymns by J. R Watson( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is not a book for worship: the hymns are printed in a chronological sequence and not by Christian season or subject, as they would be in a church hymn book. It is an anthology for those who would like to understand more about hymns: each one is given a commentary which sets it in context, identifies significant sources, and provides explanatory and critical material. An introductory essay discusses the hymn as a historical and literary form, and the way in which it appeals to so many people."
Augustan worlds : new essays in eighteenth-century literature by A. R Humphreys( Book )

15 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outlook of writers in the eighteenth century was profoundly influenced by the social and intellectual interests of Augustan life. Originally published in 1954, this book aims to describe that influence, and to set the literature of the period in its social environment with a critical attention. The treatment is compact but readable, and effective use is made of quotations from contemporary literature. -- Provided by publisher
