The prelude; or, Growth of a poet's mind by William Wordsworth( Book )

4 editions published between 1896 and 1904 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Wordsworth's autobiographical masterpiece The Prelude, or, Growth of a Poet's Mind was written between 1798 and 1805. As Wordsworth himself appreciated, it was a thing unprecedented in literary history that a man should talk so much about himself. But his revolutionary work was not published ; it was merely prefatory to a projected magnum opus and just as he had revised whilst writing, so almost immediately he began to amend the thirteen-book Prelude. At the time of his death in April 1850 there were fourteen books, of which no fair, definitive copy existed: it fell to his executors to finalise the text which was published posthumously in July 1850 and which this edition accurately reproduces without editorial emendation. Twentieth-century editors of alternative versions have questioned the merits of many of Wordsworth's "improvements", but the 1850 text remains a literary landmark, the form in which arguably his greatest work was first known
A journal of the plague year, being observations or memorials of the most remarkable occurrences, as well publick as private, which happened in London during the last Great Visitation in 1665 by Daniel Defoe( Book )

in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defoe's account of the bubonic plague that swept London in 1665 remains as vivid as it is harrowing. Based on Defoe's own childhood memories and prodigious research, A Journal of the Plague Year walks the line between fiction, history, and reportage. In meticulous and unsentimental detail it renders the daily life of a city under siege; the often gruesome medical precautions and practices of the time
