The complete works of Robert Browning : with variant readings & annotations by Robert Browning( Book )

41 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1880s, the aging Browning showed once again the remarkable versatility of his lyric and narrative talents. Ranging across eras and cultures, the books here reveal his late thoughts about history, myth, legend, faith, love, and desire. He had never been more popular, and the founding of the Browning Society in 1881 expanded both his audience and his sense of his place in English letters. The first title in Volume XV is Dramatic Idylls, Second Series (1880). Taking his subjects from classical history, colonial India, Arabian legend, medieval sorcery, Jewish folk tales, and Greek myth, Browning startles the reader with the rapidity of his thought and the inventiveness of his art. In Jocoseria (1883) Browning's subjects range across time and space from Hebraic legend to the England of the Romantics. Such variety helped attract new readers: Jocoseria was immediately successful, and a second edition was printed in the same year as the first. Although Browning's next volume, Ferishtah's Fancies (1884), was so popular that three editions were printed in less than two years, this artful string of anecdotes and lyrics has attracted little favorable criticism. The materials--Persian legends and Arabic backgrounds--chimed with the wildly popular Orientalism of FitzGerald's Rubáiyát, Whistler's Peacock Room, and Alma-Tadema's paintings. But the thought was pure Browning in his most optimistic vein, and not at all in tune with the growing pessimism of the day. As always in this series of critical editions, a complete record of textual variants is provided, as well as extensive explanatory notes."--Publisher's description

The pattern in the web : the mythical poetry of Charles Williams by Roma A King( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Williams has achieved considerable reputation for his novels. He has been recognized as a brilliant theologian and a sensitive literary critic. But Williams himself wished most to be remembered as a poet, and trusted his future literary reputation to the two-volume series of poems on the Arthurian theme, Taliessin Through Logres and The Region of the Summer Stars.Of the first volume Williams wrote: "The matter and the style require and reward attention. The poems do not so much tell a story or describe a process as express states or principles of experience. The names and incidents of the Arthurian myth are taken as starting-points for investigation and statement on common and profound experience." In this first full-length study of these poems, they receive, in both matter and style, the close attention that Williams requested.The emphasis in this study is on the quality of these poems as poetry and only secondarily upon their religious content. Although essentially Christian, they are placed within the context of the multifaceted, many-changing forms of recurring myths. Thus they represent one of the few attempts in the twentieth century to encapsulate and age-old and ever-recurring "pattern in the web" in a brilliant structure that is thoroughly modern
To Michal from Serge : letters from Charles Williams to his wife, Florence, 1939-1945 by Charles Williams( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Great Britain declared war with Germany in 1939, the Oxford University Press moved its offices from London to Oxford, and poet, author, and Oxford University Press editor Charles Williams was forced to go along. Mrs. Williams, however, elected to stay in their flat in London. To Michal from Serge is an edited collection of the nearly seven hundred letters Charles wrote to Florence during the years they were separated." "These letters to "Michal," Williams's endearing name for his wife, from "Serge," a nickname by which his most intimate friends addressed him, are more than just love letters; they are significant for what they tell us about the man, for the light they throw on his work, and for the way they show Williams in the context of his literary contemporaries and friends (C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden, Dorothy L. Sayers, Christopher Fry, and Edith Sitwell). Williams felt that T.S. Eliot and C.S. Lewis were the only two people other than his wife to whom he could talk seriously about important matters." "This resource will prove especially valuable for those interested in glimpsing the tumultuous inner life of creative artist Charles Williams, poet and wartime writer."--Jacket
