The Brontës by Juliet R. V Barker( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tragic story of the Bronte family is well known, replete with a half-mad father, a wastrel of a brother, and three uniquely gifted - and oppressed - sisters. But beyond these familiar details, the Brontes' story has remained largely obscure. This landmark book is the first definitive history of this fascinating family. Based on eleven years of research among newly discovered letters by every member of the family, original manuscripts, and the newspapers of that time, it gives a new and fuller picture of the Brontes' lives from beginning to end and, in the process, demolishes many myths. The father, Patrick, was not, as commonly believed, the cold patriarch of a family of victims. Charlotte, ruthlessly self-willed, ran roughshod over her sisters and went so far as to alter or destroy their manuscripts when she disapproved. Emily was so psychologically and physically dependent on her fantasy life that she could not survive in the outside world. Anne, widely regarded as the gentlest of the sisters, had a core of steel and was a more daring and revolutionary author than Charlotte. Branwell, the adored brother, was a talented poet who provided much of Charlotte's inspiration."--Dust jacket

The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eleventh century, in Persia, there lived a mathematician named Ghiyathuddin Abulfath Omar bin Ibrahim al-Khayyami--or, Omar, son of Abraham, the tent-maker. Omar wrote poetry, and while his rhymes received little attention in their day, they were rediscovered and translated into beautiful English--more than seven centuries later--by a gentleman and scholar named Edward FitzGerald. It was a meeting of minds, a great collaboration of the past and the present, and FitzGerald's rendition of those passionate verses has become one of the best loved poem cycles in the English language. With their concern for the here and now, as opposed to the hereafter, Omar Khayyam's quatrains are as romantic today as they were hundreds of years ago; they are a tribute to the power of one moment's pleasure over a lifetime of sorrow, of desire over the vicissitudes of time. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, presented here with Edward FitzGerald's original preface, is truly a classic, and it will stand forever as one of our finest monuments to love
The Dick Van Dyke show : anatomy of a classic by Ginny Weissman( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the history of television, there are very few shows that can truly be called "classics." The Dick Van Dyke Show is one of those few⁰́₄and for the first time, authors Weissman and Sanders have succeed in capturing the unique flavor of this very appealing, warm comedy that went straight to the heart of the American public. An affectionate and nostalgic portrait of a show more than twenty years old that is still in reruns, The Dick Van Dyke Show tells the inside story of the situational comedy whose phenomenal success was a surprise even to its creators. Tracing its evolution from the pilot, Head of the Family starring Carl Reiner, through the ordeal of finding the right actor to play the clumsy but talented TV writer Rob Petrie, gathering the supporting cast that included Rose Marie and Morey Amsterdam, whose presence added a sharp-edged humor to the series, to the discovery of the largely unknown Mary Tyler Moore to play the Capri pants-clad Laura Petrie, The Dick Van Dyke Show plots the day-to-day course of getting and keeping the show on the air. Written with the complete cooperation of every member of the cast, this book takes us through the weekly process of consistently fine writing, rehearsing, improvising, and polishing the show in which the entire company participated. From start to finish, the cast was a tight group whose personal warmth, vitality, and camaraderie created a unique chemistry that shone through every episode. Containing over 100 photos, synopses of all 158 episodes and the complete script of one of them, lists of all the awards garnered by the show and its cast during its five-year run, and an update on where everyone is today, The Dick Van Dyke Show is a loving and carefully researched tribute to one of the most beloved comedy series of all time
Julia Margaret Cameron : a Victorian family portrait by Brian Hill( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerard Manley Hopkins : a literary life by Gerald Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerard Manley Hopkins first presents the poet as a talented and sensitive young man whose early work shows characteristic signs of influence from the 19th-century poets he admired. At Oxford his religious tendencies came to dominate the creative, and he became a Catholic and later entered the Society of Jesus, despite his family's opposition and the unsympathetic atmosphere towards Catholics which was still the case in the mid-Victorian period. The book then plots his career as a Jesuit, through nine years of training, when the poetry which he had given up voluntarily on joining the Society re-emerged in original fashion in 'The Wreck of the Deutschland'. But disappointed in his hopes of publication in a Jesuit journal, he henceforth contented himself with showing his work to his friends, notably the sometimes disapproving eye of the later Poet Laureate, Robert Bridges. The mainly joyful poetry written at St Beuno's is eventually quelled by the hurly-burly of parish work into which Hopkins was flung by his superiors. The poetry and prose becomes more desperate, culminating in the near-suicidal outpourings in Dublin, where, as a patriotic Englishman, he was required to teach classics in the troubled atmosphere of agitation for Irish Home Rule. It is a story of worldly failure, and creative and spiritual achievement
