Selected poems of Herman Melville by Herman Melville( Book )

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

"Unlike Melville's fiction, his poetry remains obscure. The last "collected poems" appeared in 1947 and "selected poems" in the 1970s, and only two books dealing exclusively with Melville's poetry have appeared to date, both published in the 1970s. In this revised edition of his Poems of Herman Melville, Douglas Robillard updates the scholarship on the poetry through his introduction and notes and makes a case for a revised estimate of the importance of Melville as a poet." "The Poems of Herman Melville contains entire texts of "Battle-Pieces" (1866), "John Marr and Other Sailors" (1888), and "Timoleon" (1891). In addition, selected cantos from "Clarel" are reprinted with accompanying notes and commentary." "Melville scholars will appreciate the depth and scope of this addition to the critical study of this American literary figure."--Jacket

Racconti di artisti by Henry James( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
