Samuel Johnson and the life of reading by Robert DeMaria ( )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Samuel Johnson and the Life of Reading, Robert DeMaria considers the surprising influence of one of the greatest readers in English literature. Johnson's relationship to books not only reveals much about his life and times, DeMaria contends, but also provides a dramatic counterpoint to modern reading habits. As a superior practitioner of the craft, Johnson provides a compelling model for how to read - indeed, he provides different models for different kinds of reading. DeMaria shows how Johnson recognized early that not all reading was alike - some requiring intense concentration, some suited for cursory glances, some requiring silence, some best appreciated amid the chatter of a coffeehouse. Considering the remarkable range of Johnson's reading, DeMaria discovers in one extraordinary career a synoptic view of the subject of reading

"This volume is the first scholarly edition of Samuel Johnson's translation of Jean Pierre de Crousaz's Commentaire sur la traduction en vers de M. Abbe Du Resnel, de l'Essai de M. Pope sur l'homme, published in 1739. Included are notes comparing Johnson's translation with the French original to show his method of translation and historical annotations." "Of special interest are Johnson's notes on the dominance of the passion of love on the stage and on translation and the nature of English and French poetry. Johnson also comments on the problem of evil, particularly the ruling passion and the necessity of free will."--BOOK JACKET
Classical literature and its reception : an anthology ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Many present-day readers of literature in English have little background knowledge of classical literature and therefore find it hard to appreciate the relationship between the two traditions. This "anthology "presents a selection of works from British, Irish, and Caribbean writers that illustrates the traffic between poetry in English and in Greek and Latin. It gives readers the background they need in order to really appreciate English-language poetry influenced by the classical tradition, and it provides those already familiar with classical works with reflections of Greek and Latin authors in English."--Book cover

This book ... describes how universal writing problems have been dealt with by experienced writers, and it explains how the mistakes commonly made by novice writers can be avoided. The book is organized to be as practical as possible. It outlines the general principles of writing and then moves on to specific problems that writers encounter. Chapters 1-4 discuss the fundamental elements in a piece of creative writing-theme, setting, characters, and plot. Chapters 5-11 deal with the basic techniques for handling point of view, tone, description, dialogue, time, and imagery. Chapters 12 and 13 go over the mechanics of manuscript preparation and present a brief review of grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Finally, Chapter 14 looks at writing as a career and offers suggestions on such things as marketing, inquiries, and agents. [Cont. in TofC]

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jump into Jonathan Swift's take-no-prisoners parody of seventeenth-century Christianity. Equal parts uproarious humor and incisive satire, A Tale of a Tub dissects the foibles and shortcomings of three brothers, each of whom represents a different branch of the Christian religion. Swift, himself a clergyman, sealed his reputation as one of England's most ruthless -- and notorious -- satirists with the book's publication. It's a thought-provoking and rollicking read whether you're a
