Untimely meditations by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four short works in Untimely Meditations were published by Nietzsche between 1873 and 1876. They deal with such broad topics as the relationship between popular and genuine culture, strategies for cultural reform, the task of philosophy, the nature of education, and the relationship between art, science and life. They also include Nietzsche's earliest statement of his own understanding of human selfhood as a process of endlessly 'becoming who one is'. As Daniel Breazeale shows in his introduction to this new edition of R.J. Hollingdale's translation of the essays, these four early texts are key documents for understanding the development of Nietzsche's thought and clearly anticipate many of the themes of his later writings. Nietzsche himself always cherished his Untimely Meditations and believed that they provide valuable evidence of his 'becoming and self-overcoming' and constitute a 'public pledge' concerning his own distinctive task as a philosopher
The occasions by Eugenio Montale( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugenio Montale's second book of poetry was first published in 1939. This book is his most experimental work, but a work no less tradition-saturated than Eliot's. As poet, private individual, and ""good European"," Montale's way of dealing with his difficulties was to seize the occasions offered him by writing poetry in which the lover's passions for his beloved country would convey the truth of both his public and his private situations
Antonioni : the poet of images by William Arrowsmith( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

. "When an artist like Antonioni is examined by a critic like Arrowsmith," Ted Perry writes in his memorable introduction, "we see again how art is connected to life, life to death, and both art and life to meaning." Enhanced by an appendix providing a brief synopsis of each of the eight films, and frequent translations of key bits of dialogue crucial to film-goers' understanding, Antonioni: The Poet of Images captures the insight, sensitivity, and intelligence of one of our most distinguished critics, and celebrates the work of one of the world's most innovative film makers. It is essential reading for lovers of cinema and all admirers of Arrowsmith

Cuttlefish bones : 1920-1927 by Eugenio Montale( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugenio Montale's epoch-making first book, Cuttlefish Bones (1925), has been hailed as one of the truly important works of poetry in the twentieth century. At once an earned poetic manifesto and spiritual autobiography, its dialogue between self and others, hope and despair, is sustained with absolute musical mastery and that simplicity-in-complexity that marks only the greatest poetry. -- W.W. Norton & Company
