Hopkins : a literary biography by Norman White( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'To seem the stranger lies my lot, my life / Among strangers': so begins one of the darkest and most overtly autobiographical of Hopkins's poems, written in Ireland a few years before his death. In this major new biography, more deeply researched, fully documented, and comprehensive than any before it, Norman White uses the intimate evidence of the poems, letters, and journals, his personal knowledge of the places where Hopkins lived, and all surviving documentary records, to explore the life of the priest-poet who constantly felt himself 'the stranger' in his world. It was more than just the enforced restlessness of his life following his conversion and the decision at twenty-four to become a Jesuit--through Hopkins's writings again and again reveal his responsiveness to place, and his poignant sense of having no true home. His inner life was also an unresolved search for answers to his own difficult temperament: a series of crises, in fact, to which his responses were typically extreme, and ultimately unsatisfying. His vivid apprehension of beauty and particularity--in language, in the characters of men, in natural things, in what he perceived as the nature of Christ--was fuelled as much by longing as by calm assurance of belief. It is just this that makes him a supreme poet not only of nature but of the religious condition: the experience of both faith and despair. Norman White investigates Hopkins's background and Oxford student life, and the Roman Catholic world which he entered, carefully and without prejudgements, setting his development and the movement of his thought against the background of Victorian England. The turmoil of Hopkins's strange personality is fully explored, as is the effect of his austere profession on his highly original writings--the journals and poems that are among the most remarkable works of literature in the English language
Larkin at sixty( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many would call Philip Larkin the finest living poet writing in English. In this tribute to him on his sixtieth birthday, twenty writers have come together to celebrate the man and the poet with some specially written pieces. Some of them are reminiscent, some look at aspects of his professional life as librarian, some consider his taste as it reveals itself in his writings on jazz and in his editing of the 'Oxford Book of Twentieth Century English Verse'. The relationship between his novesls and his poems is examined, and several essays explore the poems themselves. Three poets contribute hitherto unpublished poems. Together, all these illuminate with affection and insight the work, the man behind the work, and the appeal of both

Period piece by Gwen Raverat( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Period Piece is the classic memoir of a Cambridge childhood, written by Charles Darwin's granddaughter. It evokes a time when long summer days were disturbed by nothing noisier than a horse, and long winter nights were lit only by candle or gas lamp. It is a shrewd, touching and comic portrait of eccentric relations, and of Cambridge society when it was small enough to be treated as an extension of the family. As a young girl Gwen thought it impossible that she could ever succeed as an artist, and yet the observations of the small incidents of life, recorded here in delightful prose and beautiful illustrations, reveal an artist's careful eye."--

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, 1836-1917 by Louisa Garrett Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1939 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (1836–1917), physician, feminist and champion of women's medical education, played a key role in advancing the position of women in British professional life. Elizabeth's determination to qualify as a doctor, despite the many obstacles put in her way by the all-male medical establishment, was characteristic of her strong sense of purpose. Eventually joining the medical register in 1865, she established the St Mary's Dispensary for Women and Children in 1866, adding ten beds five years later as it became the New Hospital for Women. Staffed only by women, the hospital later moved to a purpose-built site on Euston Road and offered clinical experience to students at the London School of Medicine for Women. Through her tireless efforts, her chosen profession was opened to women. This 1939 biography by her daughter Louisa (1873–1943), herself a distinguished physician, is presented largely through Elizabeth's own letters
