The reader over your shoulder : a handbook for writers of English prose by Robert Graves( Book )

71 editions published between 1943 and 1979 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This witty, learned, entertaining and enlightening book, by two masters of English prose, is an invaluable guide to anyone who has to write or teach English on any level. For although it is not true, as most other nations believe, that English is "an illogical, chaotic language, unsuited for clear thinking," it is undeniable that English is less structured grammatically than French, Spanish, Italian or German and therefore prone to slipshod usage and ambiguity. On the other hand, no other European language "admits of such poetic exquisiteness" or offers so many opportunities for individuality, development and growth. - Back cover

The transformations of Lucius, otherwise known as, the golden ass by Apuleius( Book )

69 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in English and held by 1,625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap
King Jesus by Robert Graves( Book )

82 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quoique l'auteur, dans un commentaire historique (p. 561-569), affirme ne pas désirer offenser les catholiques orthodoxes, son exégèse romanesque nourrie par les apocryphes et les gnostiques a de quoi décontenancer le lecteur, plus fortement encore que Rushdie ne l'a fait à l'égard des musulmans. Détournements de textes et hypothèses en font bien un roman

108 editions published between 1927 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immortalized in the film "Lawrence of Arabia," the real T.E. Lawrence was a leader, a war strategist, and a scholar, and is here immortalized in an intimate biography written by his close friend, the award-winning British novelist, poet and classicist Robert Graves. As a student at Oxford, T.E. Lawrence was fascinated with Middle Eastern history and culture, and underwent a four-month visit to Syria to study the fortifications built by the Crusaders. Later, he returned to the region, this time as an archaeologist working with the British Army's Intelligence unit in Egypt during World War I. From there, in 1916, he joined Arab rebels fighting against Turkish domination. His brilliance as a desert war tactician earned him the respect of the Turkish fighters and worldwide renown. This is the real story of T.E. Lawrence's life, told by one of the most influential British writers of the 20th century, and a personal friend

Wife to Mr. Milton; the story of Marie Powell by Robert Graves( Book )

66 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The famous poet John Milton, author of Paradise Lost, had a wife, and their story is both strange and tumultuous. Consummate historical novelist and poet Robert Graves tells the story from the perspective of the wife, Marie Powell, a young woman who married the poet to escape a debt. From the start, the couple proves mismatched; Milton is a domineering and insensitive husband set on punishing Marie for not providing the promised dowry. John Milton and his young wife are both religiously and temperamentally incompatible, and this portrait of their relationship is spellbinding, if not distinctly unflattering to Milton. It also provides fascinating accounts of the political upheavals of the time, including the execution of Charles I. This book is an excellent read for fans of historical fiction
