Robert Frost & the New England renaissance by George Monteiro( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 1,666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A poem is best read in the light of all the other poems ever written."" So said Robert Frost in instructing readers on how to achieve poetic literacy. George Monteiro's newest book follows that dictum to enhance our understanding of Frost's most valuable poems by demonstrating the ways in which they circulate among the constellations of great poems and essays of the New England Renaissance. Monteiro reads Frost's own poetry not against ""all the other poems ever written"" but in the light of poems and essays by his precursors, particularly Emerson, Thoreau, and Dickinson. Familiar poems such
The presence of Pessoa : English, American, and Southern African literary responses by George Monteiro( )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides tracing Pessoa's influences on the English-speaking world, Monteiro provides refreshingly new and penetrating interpretations of Pessoa's Mensagem (Message) and the modernist novella O Banqueiro Anarquista (The Anarchist Banker). In particular, The Presence of Pessoa includes an innovative reading of Oates's The Poisoned Kiss and Other Stories and Ferlinghetti's novella Love in the Days of Rage
The presence of Camoes : influences on the literature of England, America, and Southern Africa by George Monteiro( )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the great epic poets in the Western tradition, Luis Vaz de Camoes (c. 1524-1580) remains perhaps the least known outside his native Portugal, and his influence on literature in English has not been fully recognized. In this major work of comparative scholarship, George Monteiro thus breaks new ground. Combining textual analysis with cultural investigation, he focuses on English-language writers whose vision and expression have been sharpened by their varied responses to Camoes. Introduced to English readers in 1655, Camoes's work from the beginning appealed strongly to writers. His Os Lustadas so affected William Hayley's theory of the epic that he commissioned William Blake to paint Camoes's portrait and advised poet Joel Barlow to recast his New World epic along Camonean lines. Robert Southey's disappointment with Lord Strangford's translation of Camoes encouraged him to try his own versions. And the young Elizabeth Barrett's Camonean poems inspired Edgar Allan Poe to appropriate elements from the same source. Herman Melville's reading of Camoes bore fruit in his career-long borrowings from the Portuguese poet. Longfellow, T.W. Higginson, and Emily Dickinson read and championed Camoes. And Camoes as epicist and love poet is an eminence grise in several of Elizabeth Bishop's strongest Brazilian poems. Southern African writers have interpreted and reinterpreted Adamastor, Camoes's Spirit of the Cape, as a symbol of a dangerous and mysterious Africa and an emblem of European imperialism

The Hemingway short story : a critical appreciation by George Monteiro( )

The correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914 by Henry James( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few writers have had such a significant impact on American literature in the twentieth century as have Henry James and Henry Adams. The influence of Adams' Education appears unmistakably in the work of writers as diverse as T.S. Eliot, Sherwood Anderson, Vachel Lindsay, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Eugene O'Neill, Nathanael West, Norman Mailer, and Thomas Pynchon. The list of writers influenced by James is virtually endless, ranging from Ezra Pound and Wallace Stevens to Robert Lowell, among poets, and from Ford Madox Ford and Edith Wharton to Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick, among fiction writers. The Correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914, edited and annotated by George Monteiro, collects the surviving correspondence between these two legendary figures, along with four letters from James to Adams' wife, Marian "Clover" Hooper Adams. James, Adams, and Mrs. Adams were close friends until her death in 1885, and the two men continued to visit and correspond until James's death. The letters in this volume reflect the strength and vitality of that friendship and of the intellectual exchanges that nourished it. Covering a thirty-eight-year period, these thirty-six letters constitute the known extant correspondence exchanged by the two Henrys. Monteiro has carefully and skillfully edited each letter in its entirety from the manuscript original. In addition to the letters, he includes a chronology, a calendar of unlocated letters between the two men, and a bibliography. His introduction to the collection traces James's relationship with his two New England friends, Henry and Clover, in rich detail. This essay makes a lively background to the letters and sets them in vivid context. This is a fascinating collection that reveals the patterns of an enduring friendship and the minds and personalities of the participants. It makes a valuable contribution to scholarship about James and Adams, as well as to our understanding of the social and intellectual worlds in which they lived

Stephen Crane's blue badge of courage by George Monteiro( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In considering the whole of Crane's writing, Monteiro interrelates the various texts and vividly presents their cultural contexts, structuring his study around the primary natural and social settings that uniquely characterize Crane - the city, warfare, the frontier, and shipwreck at sea. By taking an unprecedented inventory of those religious readings, songs, and recitations the young Crane imbibed and tracing their permeation of his writerly imagination, Monteiro deepens our understanding of the meaning and purpose of Crane's work and fosters new appreciation for his immense but short-lived creative faculty."--Jacket

Fernando Pessoa and nineteenth-century Anglo-American literature by George Monteiro( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both in his own poetry and the poetry he attributed to his heteronyms, the great modernist poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) was strongly influenced by his reading of nineteenth-century British and American writers. Pessoa's formal education was that of a British colonial in South Africa, and his bilingual and bicultural status is evident in both his early English-language poetry and his later Portuguese writings."--Jacket

Stephen Crane : the contemporary reviews by George Monteiro( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Crane (1871–1900) was a controversial figure in American literature and journalism. In a literary career that lasted a mere decade he produced short stories, novellas, novels and poetry for which he was both lauded and reviled. With The Red Badge of Courage he entered the American canon. Despite Crane's lack of experience of war at the time of the novel's composition, it is a classic of realist war fiction. This book presents a representative selection of the reviews of Stephen Crane's books, beginning with the publication of his first novel, Maggie: A Girl of the Streets (1893), through the posthumously published last novel, The O'Ruddy (1903). Many of the reviews will be new to Crane scholars. The volume offers readers an insight into how Crane's reputation was formed and how it changed during his lifetime, ending with the shifts in emphasis upon his early death

"This study explores how Bishop's personal and literary experience in Brazil influenced her work culturally, historically, and linguistically. Focusing on the "Brazilian" characteristics of Bishop's work as well as some of the major poems she composed before settling in Brazil, this volume offers fresh perspective on one of the 20th century's most celebrated writers"--Provided by publisher
Robert Frost's poetry of rural life by George Monteiro( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frost claimed that all of his poetry was farm poetry. His deep admiration for Virgil's Georgics, or poems of rural life, inspired the creation of his own New England "georgics." This body of work can be seen as his answer to the haughty 20th-century modernism that seemed certain to define the future of Western poetry"--
