Most widely held works by Philip Edwards
The Spanish tragedy by Thomas Kyd( Book )

60 editions published between 1959 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spanish Tragedy was well known to sixteenth-century audiences, and its central elements--a play-within-a-play and a ghost bent on revenge--are widely believed to have influenced Shakespeare's Hamlet. This volume includes a generous selection of supporting materials, among them Kyd's likely sources (Virgil, Jacques Yver, and the anonymous "The Earl of Leicester Betrays His Own Servant"), Thomas Nashe's satiric criticism of Kyd, Michel de Montaigne and Francis Bacon on revenge, and "The Ballad of The Spanish Tragedy," which suggests the play's initial reception. "Criticism" is thematically organized to provide readers with a clear sense of the play's major themes. Contributors include Michael Hattaway, Jonas A. Barish, Donna B. Hamilton, G.K. Hunter, Lorna Hutson, Molly Smith, J.R. Mulryne, T. McAlindon, and Andrew Sofer. -- Publisher website

Shakespeare and the confines of art by Philip Edwards( Book )

32 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1968. By selective study of certain of the comedies, tragedies and sonnets, Philip Edwards views Shakespeare's work as a whole and explains why his art developed as it did. The work which the author sees Shakespeare striving to create is the perfect fusion of comedy and tragedy and he suggests that we are watching the progress of a mind as acutely conscious as anyone today of the disorder and lack of meaning in the world. Nevertheless, it remains faithful to the possibility that within the imaginable forms of drama there exists that play which will satisfy the basic human need for reassurance, order and control

"Captain Cook's Journals provide his vivid first-hand account of three extraordinary expeditions. These charted the entire coast of New Zealand and the east coast of Australia, and brought back detailed descriptions of Tahiti, Tonga and a host of, until then, unknown islands in the Pacific. The journals amply reveal the determination, courage and skill which enabled Cook to wrestle with the continuous dangers of uncharted seas and the problems of achieving a relationship with the peoples whose unannounced guest he became."--Jacket
Pilgrimage and literary tradition by Philip Edwards( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this original and wide-ranging book, Philip Edwards examines the theme of pilgrimage in the works of a variety of major writers, including Shakespeare, Conrad, T.S. Eliot, Yeats and Heaney. Edwards considers the original and early uses of the terms 'pilgrim' and 'pilgrimage' in life and literature, and demonstrates the importance, vitality and flexibility of pilgrimage as a literary theme over the centuries. The emphasis is almost wholly on post-Reformation writers, analysing the theme of pilgrimage in major works where previously it has not been thought to exist, and marking an important departure from traditional studies of the pilgrim and pilgrimage in literature. With the character of Hamlet central to the discussion, Edwards argues the emergence in Shakespeare of a new tragic vision of pilgrimage, which perhaps had its beginnings in ancient Irish literature. This is a ground-breaking and unusual study, which encompasses centuries under a common, and vital, theme."--Jacket
