Most widely held works by Richard Clay (The Chaucer Press)
The sonnets by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition focuses on the Sonnets as poetry - sometimes strikingly individual poems, but often subtly interlinked in thematic, imagistic and other groupings. Gwynne Evans and Anthony Hecht also address the many questions that cast a veil of mystery over the genesis of the Sonnets: to what extent are they autobiographical? What is the nature of the 'love', strongly expressed, between the 'poet', the 'youth' and the 'Dark Lady'? Can they, apart from the poet, be Identified? Who is the 'rival poet'? When were the Sonnets written and in what order? What were the circumstances surrounding their publication?

The life & opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At once endlessly facetious and highly serious, Sterne's great comic novel contains some of the best-known and best-loved characters in English literature--including Uncle Toby, Corporal Trim, Parson Yorick, and Dr. Slop--and boasts one of the most innovative and whimsical narrative styles in all literature. This revised edition of Sterne's extraordinary novel retains the text based on the first editions of the original nine volumes (with Sterne's later changes), adds two illustrations by William Hogarth, and expands and updates the introduction, bibliography, and notes, to make this the most critically up-to-date edition available. The text of the novel preserves, as far as possible, the appearance of Sterne's idiosyncratic typography and features such as black pages, marbled pages, blank pages, missing chapters and other devices. The introduction sheds light on the novel's innovations and influence and provides a biographical account of the author. Comprehensive notes identify the profusion of references and reveal previously overlooked sources. - Publisher

Sir Harry Paget Flashman is, by his own unapologetic self-description "a scoundrel, a liar, a cheat, a thief, a coward--and oh yes, a toady." This excerpt from the Flashman Papers finds Flashy considering a run for Parliamentary office, becoming involved in the West African slave trade, talking his way out of prison in America, engineering the escape of Cassy on the Underground Railroad, and meeting a future president. Thus does this "illustrious Victorian soldier" pass the time from 1848 to 1849
