"In The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde, replete with newly discovered correspondence, the full extent of that genius is unveiled. Charting his life from his Irish upbringing to his fame in fin de siecle London to infamy and exile in Paris, these letters - written between 1875 and 1900 - reveal Wilde's wit, brilliance, and humanity. With letters to publishers and fans, friends and lovers, enemies and adversaries, this complete collection also includes editorial insights by Wilde's sole grandson, Merlin Holland, and the renowned Wilde scholar Rupert Hart-Davis." "An indispensable book for all lovers of Oscar Wilde, The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde reveals his passion, his fears, his lies, his barbs, and, above all, the glory of his imagination."--Jacket

The war poems of Siegfried Sassoon by Pinchbeck Lyre( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No poetry has touched readers' hearts more deeply than the soldier poets of the First World War. Published to commemorate the centenary of 1914, this stunning set of books, with specially commissioned covers by leading print makers, is an essential gathering of our most beloved war poets introduced by leading poets and biographers of our present day. 'In later years', Sir Rupert Hart-Davis writes in his Introduction, 'when Siegfried Sassoon had written much else in prose and verse, he was annoyed at always being referred to simply as a war poet, but it was the Great War that turned him into a poet of international fame, and I feel sure that his ghost will forgive me for thus bringing together these magnificently scarifying poems.' The poems are arranged as far as possible in the order of their composition, and the reader can compare them with the poet's movements by means of the Biographical Table which is included. Fourteen of the poems in this volume were published for the first time in the 1983 edition of this work. Sassoon's stature is now assured and recognized. This volume contains the poetry on which his reputation rests
