New bearings in English poetry; a study of the contemporary situation by F. R Leavis( Book )

127 editions published between 1932 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"F.R. Leavis believed passionately in the importance of 'living literature', of relating poetry to contemporary human experience. He interpreted T.S. Eliot's poetic impact in the 1920s as the start of a new age in which the 'other-worldly' Romantic conventions of Victorian poetry wewre collapsing. But recognition of such a significant moment in literary history is not Leavis's sole achievement in 'New bearings in English poetry'. His appraisal of Eliot's strong intelligence, the subtlety and sensibility of Ezra Pound and Hopkins's technical innovation, still serves as an informative and cogently written introduction to these poets." --

Education & the university : a sketch for an "English school" by Frank Raymond Leavis( Book )

66 editions published between 1943 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book deals with the problem of humane education in a world where the demand for specialists and specialist training makes itself felt increasingly and irresistibly, while the need - which certainly doesn't diminish - for the central educated mind becomes both harder to meet and harder to get duly attended to. It is pre-eminently, Dr. Leavis argues, the function of the universities to tackle this problem, and he makes suggestions for an "English School" in which the requisite liberal training, designed to bring various disciplines and various fields of study into relation without promotng superficiality, might be experimentally worked out."

"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
