American renaissance : art and expression in the age of Emerson and Whitman by F. O Matthiessen( Book )

154 editions published between 1941 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 3,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Renaissance has taken its place as the definitive treatment of that most distinguished age of our literature. Centering his discussion around five of its literary giants--Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville, and Whitman--Matthiessen elucidates their conceptions of nature and the function of literature, and the extent to which these were realized in their writings. The breadth of the book lies in the author's use of the five-year period from 1850 to 1855 as a focal point in interpreting what went before and what followed in the development of our prose and poetry. The masterpieces produced in this one extraordinarily concentrated moment of expression, and fully explored in these pages, include Representative Men, Walden, The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables, Moby-Dick, Pierre, and Leaves of Grass

50 editions published between 1944 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout this volume a study is made of the technique evolved by James to communicate his themes. The gradation of moral awareness in the characters, their dramatic juxtaposition, and the construction of patters of imagery are analyzed to reveal the depth of James' mature work. A final chapter on Portrait of a lady examines James' revisions of this earlier novel as it was reconceived to conform to the style and thought of his "major phase"

Questa è una raccolta storica di racconti di James, uscita negli Stati Uniti nel 1944 e ora proposta per la prima volta al pubblico italiano. Il suo ideatore, Francis Otto Matthiessen, è stato uno dei più grandi studiosi di James, ma anche di Whitman, Hawthorne, Melville e altri ancora. La sua è una raccolta che ha contribuito non poco alla fortuna moderna dello scrittore americano, creando, all'interno del corpus dei racconti jamesiani, un canone di testi basati sulla riflessione intorno all'arte e alla scrittura. Non sono tutti i racconti che James scrisse con protagonisti artisti e scrittori: ma tutti i racconti scelti da Matthiessen si tengono fra loro, oltre che per la qualità, per struttura, tematiche esplicite e sotterranee
Selected poems of Herman Melville : a reader's edition by Herman Melville( Book )

9 editions published between 1944 and 2010 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1970, Warren's edition remains the most comprehensive selection of Melville's poetry ever presented. It brings together the best of the Civil War poems from Battle-Pieces (1866), the portraits of sailors from John Marr (1888), and the autumnal lyrics from Timoleon (1891), as well as poems uncollected during Melville's lifetime. Central to the selection are several self-contained passages from Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage to the Holy Land (1876), a book-length work that Warren calls "an important document of our modernity ... in fact, a precursor to The Waste Land, with the same central image, the same flickering contrasts of the past and the present, the same charade of belief and unbelief."" "Warren introduces his selection with a valuable interpretive essay, and also provides copious textual and critical notes."--Jacket
