A dictionary of literary symbols by Michael Ferber ( )
61 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 3,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first dictionary of symbols to be based on literature, rather than "universal" psychological archetypes or myths. It explains and illustrates the literary symbols that we all frequently encounter (such as swan, rose, moon, gold), and gives hundreds of cross-references and quotations. The dictionary concentrates on English literature, but its entries range widely from the Bible and classical authors to the twentieth century, taking in American and European literatures. For this new edition, Michael Ferber has included over twenty completely new entries (including bear, holly, sunflower, and tower), and has added to many of the existing entries. Enlarged and enriched from the first edition, its informed style and rich references make this book and essential tool not only for literary and classical scholars, but for all students of literature."--BOOK JACKET

Romanticism : a very short introduction by Michael Ferber ( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge introduction to British romantic poetry by Michael Ferber ( Book )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The best way to learn about Romantic poetry is to plunge in and read a few Romantic poems. This book guides the new reader through this experience, focusing on canonical authors - Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Keats, Blake and Shelley - whilst also including less familiar figures as well. Each chapter explains the history and development of a genre or sets out an important context for the poetry, with a wealth of practical examples. Michael Ferber emphasizes connections between poets as they responded to each other and to great literary, social and historical changes around them. A unique appendix resolves most difficulties new readers of works from this period might face: unfamiliar words, unusual word order, the subjunctive mood and meter. This enjoyable and stimulating book is an ideal introduction to some of the most powerful and pleasing poems in the English language, written in one of the greatest periods in English poetry"--
