Revaluation; tradition & development in English poetry by F. R Leavis( Book )

135 editions published between 1936 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of tradition and development in English poetry from the early seventeenth to the early nineteenth century. The author discusses first the 'line of wit' that sprang from Jonson and Donne, and then devotes a chapter each to Milton's verse, Pope, the Augustan tradition, Wordsworth, Shelley and Keats. These revaluations, which are marked by that profound sense of the creative force of great literature that informs all Dr. Leavis' work, have taken their place among the classics of modern literary criticism

Lectures in America by F. R Leavis( Book )

15 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many centuries, the world of Islam was in the forefront of human achievement - the foremost military and economic power in the world, the leader in the arts and sciences of civilization. Christian Europe, a remote land beyond its northwestern frontier, was seen as an outer darkness of barbarism and unbelief from which there was nothing to learn or to fear. And then everything changed, as the previously despised West won victory after victory, first on the battlefield and in the marketplace, then in almost every aspect of public and even private life." "In this volume, Bernard Lewis examines the anguished reaction of the Islamic world as it tried to understand why things had changed, how they had been overtaken, overshadowed, and to an increasing extent dominated by the West. Lewis provides a fascinating portrait of a culture in turmoil. He shows how the Middle East turned its attention to understanding European weaponry and military tactics, commerce and industry, government and diplomacy, education and culture. He describes how some Middle Easterners fastened blame on a series of scapegoats, both external and internal, while others asked, not "who did this to us?" but rather "where did we go wrong?" and, as a natural consequence, "how do we put it right?" Lewis highlights the striking differences between the Western and Middle Eastern cultures from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries with thought-provoking comparisons of such things as Christianity and Islam, music and the arts, the position of women, secularism and the civil society, the clock and the calendar."--BOOK JACKET
