The Passing of Arthur : new essays in Arthurian tradition by Christopher Baswell( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<P>Originally published in 1988, this volume contains papers from, and commissioned after, ""The Passing of Arthur"", a conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies in November 1986.

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New York Nocturne is the first book to examine how the art of the gaslit and electric city evolved, and how representations of nighttime New York expanded the boundaries of modern painting, literature, and photography. Exploring the myriad images of Manhattan after dark, New York Nocturne shows how writers and artists took on the city's nocturnal blaze and transformed the scintillating landscape into an icon of modernity." "Abundantly illustrated, New York Nocturne includes original readings of works by a number of writers. Collectively, they tell a fascinating story about the relationship between night, art, and modern urban life."--Jacket

"The City Dark chronicles the disappearance of darkness. The film follows filmmaker (and amateur astronomer) Ian Cheney who moves to New York City from Maine and discovers an urban sky almost completely devoid of stars.
