Writing the map of Anglo-Saxon England : essays in cultural geography by Nicholas Howe( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eminent Anglo-Saxonist Nicholas Howe explores how the English, in the centuries before the Norman Conquest, located themselves both literally and imaginatively in the world. His elegantly written study focuses on Anglo-Saxon representations of place as revealed in a wide variety of texts in Latin and Old English, as well as in diagrams of holy sites and a single map of the known world found in British Library, Cotton Tiberius B v. The scholar's investigations are supplemented and aided by insights gleaned from his many trips to physical sites."--Jacket
Migration and mythmaking in Anglo-Saxon England by Nicholas Howe( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critic's notebook by Irving Howe( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irving Howe was a major intellectual presence: winner of the National Book Award for his best-selling history, World of Our Fathers; editor of Dissent, an influential left-wing magazine of opinion; professor of English at Brandeis University, Stanford University, and the City University of New York. When he died in 1993, he left behind a collection of essays on fiction which he had been working on in the last of his life." "Assembled by his son, Nicholas Howe, who also provides an introduction, these accessible, idiosyncratic essays, - which Irving Howe called his shtiklach (Yiddish for "little pieces" or "morsels") - explore such enduring literary concepts as character, style, tone, genre. Many address both literature and politics; but all originate from a passion, a moral striving, and an abiding faith in the common reader."--Jacket
