The life of John Berryman by John Haffenden( Book )

21 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Berryman occupies a central place among the outstanding poets of recent times. Homage to Mistress Bradstreet, which Edmund Wilson called "the most distinguished long poem by an American since "The Waste Land", and The Dream Songs, an astonishing modern epic in which Berryman displayed much of his personality and experience, together earned him the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for poetry. The autobiographical daring of his poetry, which began as early as 1947 with Berryman's Sonnets, a sequence charting the fortunes of a love affair (not published until 1976), roused the wide interest in the poet's life-story which this biography is designed to meet. -- Book jacket

Following the success in paperback of William Empson's Essays on Shakespeare (1986), this first volume of his Essays on Renaissance Literature (1993) now appears in an accessible format.

'Some of these passages have a sweep as grand as Empson found in Donne.' Eric Griffiths, The Times Literary Supplement 'Empson's achievement here as elsewhere comes from the generosity of spirit which made him consistently a great critic.' The New York Review of Books

Selected letters of William Empson by William Empson( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited collection of letters by William Empson (1906-1984), one of the foremost writers and literary critics of the twentieth century, covers the entirety of his career. Parts of the correspondence record the development of ideas that were to come to fruition in seminal texts including Seven Types of Ambiguity, The Structure of Complex Words, and Milton's God. The topics of other letters range from Shakespeare's Dark Lady to Marvell's marriage and Byron's bisexuality. Empson relished correspondence that was combative, if not downright aggressive. As a result, parts of this edition take the form of a serial disputation with other critics of the period." "All readers of literary history and criticism will stand to benefit from this edition. Empson is universally credited as the man who 'invented' modern literary criticism and these writings make a signal addition to the canon of his works. This selection provides a context for the evaluation of Empson's total literary output; and in many letters Empson seeks to defend his ideas against both published and personal attacks. This volume not only fills in all the missing links, it adds up to a completely new volume of critical writings by Empson."--BOOK JACKET

The letters of T. S. Eliot by T. S Eliot( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1932 and 1933, the years covered in this sixth volume of the letters of T. S. Eliot, mark a period the Nobel Prize-winning poet, playwright, and essayist referred to as "the happiest I can ever remember in my life." Written largely during his Depression Era travels across the United States, Eliot's correspondences deal in part with his determination to dissolve his torturous eighteen-year marriage with Vivian. Rich in gossip gleaned during his tenure as Harvard lecturer and on a speaking tour that took him from New York to California, the letters describe Eliot's encounters with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edmund Wilson, Marianne Moore, and other notable figures of the day. The close of 1933 finds Eliot back in England where his is commissioned to write "The Rock: a Pageant Play", a collaborative effort that will be the proving found for his subsequent theatrical triumph "Murder in the Cathedral"
