Wordsworth: a collection of critical essays by M. H Abrams( Book )

16 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the role of William Wordsworth in Western literary tradition by essays outstanding in their range, diversity, and excellence. They reveal two aspects of the great romantic-the simple, elemental, forthright poet and the complex, paradoxical problematic poet -through examinations of his poetic qualities, discussions of individual poems, and analyses of particularly significant short passages. Selected by the distinguished scholar and critic M. H. Abrams, these essays, together with treatments of the overall design of Wordsworth's longer works, make this a uniquely comprehensive overview of the recent approaches to the major poets in the English languages

New perspectives in German literary criticism : a collection of essays by Richard E Amacher( )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented here are selected critical essays from five volumes of the Poetik und Hermeneutik series published in Germany by the Wilhelm Fink Verlag of Munich. These essays represent some of the newest and most advanced thinking of fifteen leading scholars in the German-American interdisciplinary school of literary criticism. Until now no single volume has provided such an extensive contemporary treatment of literatures, problems, and methodologies representative of European criticism. The book's significance rests in the potential this new interdisciplinary criticism has for increasing the interplay between the two major critical movements of our day, namely, the objective, pragmatic Anglo-American criticism and the more subjective, phenomenological Continental criticism. Originally published in 1979. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

In the year of his one-hundredth birthday, pre-eminent literary critic, scholar and teacher M.H.

In these essays, three of them never before published, Abrams engages afresh with pivotal figures in intellectual and literary history, among them Kant, Keats and Hazlitt. The centrepiece of the volume is Abrams's eloquent and incisive essay "The Fourth Dimension of a Poem" on the pleasure of reading poems aloud, accompanied by online recordings of Abrams's revelatory readings of poems such as William Wordsworth's "Surprised by Joy", Alfred Tennyson's "Here Sleeps the Crimson Petal" and Ernest Dowson's "Cynara".
