'Triumphs of English' : Henry Parker, Lord Morley, translator to the Tudor court : new essays in interpretation( )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the few authors from the ranks of the nobility during the first half of the16th century, Henry Parker, Lord Morley (c.1481-1556) is an undeservedly neglected figure, whose rehabilitation this volume sets out to establish. Morley was the first Tudor writer to render Petrarch's "Trionfi" into English verse, he set about imitating the "Italian Ryme called Soneto", and he translated Plutarch's "Lives" into English decades before any other writer attempted to do so. He presented his translations each year as New Year's gifts to those he wished to please, individuals as diverse as Henry VIII himself, the King's daughter Mary, and Thomas Cromwell. As these essays show, Morley was a kind of mirror of the ways in which the Tudor nobility functioned in a world wracked by faction and discord. The collection is interdisciplinary and features contributions by leading historians, cultural critics and literary scholars, including David Starkey, James P. Carley, Julia Boffey, A.S.G. Edwards, K.R. Bartlett, Richard Rex, Jeremy Maule and Suzanne Woods. It also includes editions of writings by Morley

The books of King Henry VIII and his wives by James P Carley( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, James P. Carley, a leading scholar in the emerging field of book history, describes Henry VIII's libraries and shows their key role in providing a more intimate understanding of this seemingly familiar monarch and his consorts. The books of the wives, moreover, show them to have been as independent and innovative as the king himself. The extensive illustrations allow us to examine both the bindings and the contents of the collection, and also provide us with examples of his immediate voice in the form of the marginalia that he inserted into his books."--Jacket

8 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Algernon Charles Swinburne was one of the most brilliant and controversial poets of the 19th century: a republican; a scorner of established Christianity; a writer of sexual daring; a poet of loss and of love. Yet he is also the most misunderstood poet of the Victorian period. This edition, with substantial editorial material, presents a new and convincing portrait of a man sharply different from what is usually said of him
