Travels of William Bartram by William Bartram( Book )

30 editions published between 1928 and 2007 in English and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The records kept by William Bartram of his journeys through the Southern colonies in the 18th century constitute a classic of American natural history. These records have already been the subject of close literary study and acclaim as a source of some of Wordsworth's and Coleridge's finest imagery. Here, however, is the first examination and interpretation of the Travels conducted expressly from the naturalist's point of view. Mr. Harper has followed nearly all the turnings of Bartram's trails through the Southeast, identifying his numerous plants and animals, locating his Indian villages, and providing concise biographical information for the major and minor figures that move through the pages. New illustrations, along with those of 1791, show buildings, natural scenes, and the plant and animal life under discussion

Selected poetry by William Wordsworth( Book )

21 editions published between 1950 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most inclusive single-volume cloth edition of his poetry available, "Selected Poetry" represents Wordsworth's prolific output from the poems that changed the face of English poetry first published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798 to the late "Yarrow Revisited". Wordsworth's poetry is celebrated for its deep feeling, it use of ordinary speech, the love of nature it expresses, and its representation of commonplace things and events. There is no middle ground for readers of Wordsworth. There is a sharp divide between those who are deeply impassioned about his work and those for whom it is too radical and overtly romantic. Wordsworth changed the aesthetic of poetry with a seriousness of purpose and a deeper claim to "suffering and joy, in suffering not less than joy." In this new Modern Library hard cover edition edited by the imminent critic and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mark Van Doren with a new introduction by noted Romanticist David Bromwich, readers will find the most inclusive single volume of Wordsworth's poetry currently available. Spanning the years from 1787 through 1834, this is a complete and well-selected collection that represents Wordsworth's prolific creative output
