Take time for paradise : Americans and their games by A. Bartlett Giamatti( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A philosophical musing on sports and play, this wholly inspiring and utterly charming reissue of Bart Giamatti's long-out-of-print final book, Take Time for Paradise, puts baseball in the context of American life and leisure. Giamatti begins with the conviction that our use of free time tells us something about who we are. He explores the concepts of leisure, American-style. And in baseball, the quintessential American game, he finds its ultimate expression. "Sports and leisure are our reiteration of the hunger for paradise for freedom untrammeled." Filled with pithy truths about such resonant subjects as ritual, self-betterment, faith, home, and community, Take Time for Paradise gives us much more than just baseball. These final, eloquent thoughts of "the philosopher king of baseball" (Seattle Weekly) are a joyful, reverent celebration of the sport Giamatti loved and the country that created it"--Provided by publisher

Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1532) is the culmination of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France, a brilliantly witty parody of the medieval romances, and a fitting monument to the court society of the Italian Renaissance which gave it birth. In a kaleidoscope of scenes and emotions, three principal stories are developed: the love of Orlando for Angelica; the war between the Franks and the Saracens; and the love of Ruggiero, a Saracen, for Bradamant, a Christian. Enlivening and unifying the whole work is the vital personality of the author, endlessly teasing his readers and dropping casual asides about his contemporaries. Though highly serious in purpose and sophisticated in design, Orlando Furioso displays to the full Ariostro's remarkable sense of the absurd. This unabridged prose translation faithfully captures the narrative entire and renders meaning in its lightest shadings."--Back cover
Western literature by Heinrich Von Staden( Book )

12 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the General Introduction: The three volumes of Western Literature are intended to provide the student with a broad view of the literature of the Western world. The volume on the Ancient World contains some of the best representative examples of the Hebraic and Greco-Roman traditions and of the origins of Christian writing. The second volume, covering the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Enlightenment, opens with a troubadour's lyric to a faraway love and ends with Voltaire's satire on complacent optimism. The third volume, devoted to the Modern World, traces the contemporary spirit from Rousseau to two current masters of the Americas
