The presence of Pessoa : English, American, and Southern African literary responses by George Monteiro( )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,403 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( )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the great epic poets in the Western tradition, Luis Vaz de Camões (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, focusing on English-language writers whose vision and expression have been sharpened by their varied responses to Camões. Introduced to English readers in 1655, Camões's work from the beginning appealed strongly to writers. The young Elizabeth Barrett's Camonean poems, for example, inspired
Robert Frost & the New England renaissance by George Monteiro( )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 1,038 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
Stephen Crane : the contemporary reviews by George Monteiro( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monteiro reads Frost's poetry in the light of poems and essays by his precursors, particularly Emerson, Thoreau, and Dickinson. He shows how familiar poems such as "Mending Wall," "After Apple-picking," "The Road Not Taken," and "Moving," as well as less-known poems such as "The Draft Horse," "Dust of Snow," "The Bonfire," and "A Cabin in the Clearing," pay tribute to their distinugished sources, by drawing upon them for thought, symbol, image and language. Monteiro tells a two-stranded tale of attraction, imitation, and homage, countered by competition, denigration, and acceptance of Dickinson's greatness as a woman poet by Frost.

Reading Henry James : a critical perspective on selected works by George Monteiro( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry James has been championed as an historian of social conscience and attacked as a spokesman for social privilege. His Americanness has been questioned by nativists and defended by Brahmins. An acknowledged master in his final years, James' narrow readership has dwindled in the century since his death. This book examines allusions, sources and affinities in James' vast body of work to interpret his literary intentions. Chapters provide close analysis of Daisy Miller, The American, The Beast in the Jungle and The Wings of the Dove."--
From Lisbon to the world : Fernando Pessoa's enduring literary presence by George Monteiro( )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fernando Pessoa is one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. Until some years ago known in the English-speaking world only among a minority of connaisseurs, his work is finally becoming available in English translations, and more are in the process of reaching the literary public. Born in Lisbon in 1888, Pessoa was only forty-seven when he died, but he left behind a staggering number of unpublished manuscripts that are still being screened and brought to light. George Steiner heralded the day Pessoa discovered his major Portuguese heteronyms, for no country had ever seen the birth of four great poets in a single day. That was a reference to the personae Pessoa created, the famous heteronyms Alberto Caeiro, Álvaro de Campos, and Ricardo Reis, besides the man himself--all poets in their own right with their biographies and even critical exchanges among themselves. Today well over a hundred Pessoa heteronyms are known, including, notably, the semi-heteronym Bernardo Soares, author of The Book of Disquiet, presently available in two English translations. Lately, another Pessoa is emerging--an English writer, as well as a thinker. Indeed, having been educated in Durban, South Africa, where his stepfather was the consul of Portugal, the poet had a strong English education that shaped his life and thought"--
The correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914 by Henry James( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 601 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 418 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 )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 265 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
