William Thackeray : the critical heritage by Geoffrey Tillotson( )

30 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in English and held by 1,948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects. The Collected Critical Heritage set will be available as a set of 68 volumes and the series will also be available in mini sets selected by period (in slipcase boxes) and as individual volumes

Criticism and the nineteenth century by Geoffrey Tillotson( Book )

38 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The re-emergence into critical esteem of the literature of the English mid-nineteenth century has been one of the post-war excitements for students and general readers. Mid-nineteenth century literature is not simply the best body of literature the English have produced. It happens also to be literature that has a practical interest for ourselves. We live so plainly in its wake. The problems being faced a hundred years ago are the problems still facing ourselves, such as the continued supremacy of science and its methods and the consequently progressive disappearance of what was called the sup

Augustan studies by Geoffrey Tillotson( Book )

27 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is still true that most readers of eighteenth-century poetry approach it by way of nineteenth-century poetry; they know what Wordsworth said about Pope before they read Pope. This means that when they read Pope and other eighteenth-century poets, they apply the wrong criteria. An eighteenth-century poet did not have to create the taste by which he was enjoyed to the same extent as a nineteenth-century poet was conscious of having to. The kinds were ready waiting for him, and, if the rules of poetic diction for the kinds of which he elected to write were properly complied with, the products were recognisable: epic, tragedy in verse, Pindaric, elegy, heroic and familiar epistle, pastoral, georgic, occasional verse, translation and imitation. This book, a collection of essays by Dr Tillotson, examines these types of eighteenth-century poetry with particular focus on poetic diction, as well as discussing works such as Popea's letters and Johnsona's dictionary."--Bloomsbury Publishing

An anthology of eighteenth-century writing, selected according to literary merit including not only poetry and drama but works of theology, philosophy, criticism, polemic, practical advice, and travel, beginning with sufficient writers of the Restoration to imply the genealogy of eighteenth-century achievements and concluding with that part of Blake's work which most exemplifies the thematic and stylistic concerns of this century

Mid-Victorian studies by Geoffrey Tillotson( Book )

19 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of lectures, broadcasts, reviews, and articles (several of which have not previously been published) embraces many aspects of the English literary scene in the middle of the nineteenth century. Though various in origin the collection has this unity: it has been the constant concern of its authors for many years that the great and lasting contribution of the mid-Victorian period to our literature should be fully vindicated, and its appraisal based upon secure foundations of critical scholarship. The book has moreover an obvious connection with the volume on the mid-nineteenth ce

Augustan poetic diction by Geoffrey Tillotson( Book )

22 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume makes conveniently available to students and others the group of chapters in Professor Geoffrey Tillotson's Augustan Studies in which he deals with the poetic theory and practice of the Augustan age as a whole, rather than with particular works. Augustan poetry as defined by Professor Tillotson is the 'poetry written by most poets from Elizabethan times into the nineteenth century' and though this may appear at first sight an inconveniently wide definition it enables the author to show that the great eighteenth-century masters who are his chief concern here are in the main course o
The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1977 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnson's adaptation of the popular oriental tale displays his usual wit and perceptiveness; sceptical and probing, his tale nevertheless suggests that wisdom and self-knowledge need not be entirely beyond reach. This new edition relates Rasselas to Johnson's life and thought and to politics, society, and the global context of the Seven Years War
