Gustave Courbet: his life and art by Jack Lindsay( Book )

25 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The origins of art are complex, but Courbet represents the essential point of break with academicism, romanticism, and classicism, which made possible the path followed by Cézanne and the Impressionists. The term "realism" was devised to describe his work, but what may be called his powerful sense of the direct object, in nature or mankind, was not in the least natualistic in the sense now given to that term. It resulted from a rich set of emotional, philosophical, political, and aesthetic viewpoints, which he fused into an organic whole. In this full-length critical biography the painter's life is related directly to his art, and we can see that, far from being the boastful extrovert generally depicted, Courbet had a clear and deeply felt aesthetic sense, which he developed with resolute consistency. The author brings out the underlying unity of Courbet's life, work, and thought, and in the process provides a vivid picture of French art and society in the revolutionary years of the mid-nineteenth century."--Publisher's description

Metamorphoses by Apuleius( Book )

16 editions published between 1932 and 1973 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap

As can be expected, mayhem, and hilarity, ensues

John Bunyan, maker of myths by Jack Lindsay( Book )

23 editions published between 1937 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a biography of Bunyan. But there would be no excuse for re-telling the story of Bunyan's life unless one were considering it from a new angle, with a new focus. The new focus is here provided by the attempt to relate Bunyan's work in particular, and the protestant movement in general, to the social forces from which they sprang. At the same time I have tried to analyze the myth-making faculty in Bunyan and to show how his allegories take their place in the world of symbolism and myth. - Foreword
