The adventures of Harry Richmond by George Meredith( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richmond Roy, or Roy Richmond, is the ne'er-do-well son of an actress and an unnamed member of the royal family. He has taken up the trade of singing teacher, and in this capacity is employed by Squire Beltham, one of whose two daughters he seduces and elopes with. Having given birth to Harry Richmond the daughter dies. Squire Beltham and his other daughter, Dorothy, obtain custody of Harry after a prolonged struggle with Roy. Harry runs away from school and ends up in Germany, where he happens upon his father, now living at the courts of various German princes, with intervals in debtors' prisons. Harry falls in love with Princess Ottilia, but he is once more returned to the care of his grandfather, who promises to make Harry heir to his fortune of £20,000 a year if he will marry local girl Janet Ilchester. Harry will have none of this, and goes back to the Continent to pursue his princess, only to find that she has married a German prince. Since Janet is now engaged to an English marquess, and Squire Beltham has left his grandson a measly £3000, Harry seems to have got the worst of both worlds. Happily, Janet has second thoughts about the marquess and marries Harry instead. The story ends with a disastrous fire, in which Roy dies while trying to save Dorothy Beltham's life

The Poetry of Les Murray : critical essays( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les Murray is acknowledged internationally as Australia's leading poet, yet the criticism of his work has not been commensurate with his substantial reputation. These groundbreaking, new essays range across Murray's considerable output, impressive in their depth as well as their coverage as they reveal the riches of his poetry. They examine its lyrical qualities and its remarkable linguistic inventiveness, its landscapes and 'soundscapes', its biographical qualities, its underlying poetics and world view, including the mid-length poems and the recent verse novel, "Fredy Neptune". This volume is an indispensable companion for everyone with an interest in Australian and world poetry. Contributors include outstanding Murray scholars, new and well known, from overseas as well as Australia. Peter Steele writes of Murray 'watching with his mouth'; Martin Leer produces a brilliant study of the 'poetics of place' and the centrality of the district of Bunyah to Murray's world; Christopher Pollnitz looks at the midlength poems, including "The Bulahdelah-Taree Holiday Song Cycle", Nils Eskestad analyses Murray's soundscapes and Peter Pierce his "Narrowspeak"; Line Henriksen places "Fredy Neptune" in the context of works by Heaney, Walcott and Dante; Bruce Clunies Ross discusses Murray's art of 'cracking normal'; Charles Lock contributes an outstanding essay on "Fredy Neptune" and its underlying ethics and poetics; Noel Rowe rescrutinises the poem on the death of Murray's mother, and Carol Hetherington contributes an invaluable checklist
