From Baltimore to Bohemia : the letters of H.L. Mencken and George Sterling by H. L Mencken( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"H. L. Mencken was one of the most prolific letter-writers in American literature, and many of his letters were written to fellow authors. Aside from those to Theodore Dreiser, few of these letters have been published. This volume presents the joint correspondence of Mencken and George Sterling, an unjustly forgotten California poet who, under the initial tutelage of Ambrose Bierce, gained celebrity for such volumes as The Testimony of the Suns (1903) and A Wine of Wizardry (1909). The correspondence of H.L. Mencken and George Sterling - by turns amusing, outrageous, and illuminating - casts a vivid light into the literary, social, and cultural milieu of the Jazz Age, as seen through the eyes of two of its most distinctive figures."--Jacket

Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

3 editions published between 1905 and 1912 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eleventh century, in Persia, there lived a mathematician named Ghiyathuddin Abulfath Omar bin Ibrahim al-Khayyami--or, Omar, son of Abraham, the tent-maker. Omar wrote poetry, and while his rhymes received little attention in their day, they were rediscovered and translated into beautiful English--more than seven centuries later--by a gentleman and scholar named Edward FitzGerald. It was a meeting of minds, a great collaboration of the past and the present, and FitzGerald's rendition of those passionate verses has become one of the best loved poem cycles in the English language. With their concern for the here and now, as opposed to the hereafter, Omar Khayyam's quatrains are as romantic today as they were hundreds of years ago; they are a tribute to the power of one moment's pleasure over a lifetime of sorrow, of desire over the vicissitudes of time. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, presented here with Edward FitzGerald's original preface, is truly a classic, and it will stand forever as one of our finest monuments to love
