Tales of unrest by Joseph Conrad( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The five stories brought together in Tales of Unrest (1898) mark a turning point in the writer's career. Conrad's first short story collection evidences a writer firmly in control of his new craft staking a claim to diverse cultural and fictional territories. The introduction situates the writing of these stories in Conrad's career and discusses their sources and contemporary reception. The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places, and indicate influences. Two maps and six illustrations enrich the explanatory matter. The essay on the text lays out the history of the work's composition and publication, details interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors, and explains editorial policy. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's stories and his preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far printed"--

War is kind by Stephen Crane( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War is Kind is a brief collection of short poems by Stephen Crane. This volume has been handsomely illustrated with Art Nouveau illustrations by Will Bradley. Crane's poetry is rarely anthologized, but that has nothing to do with its quality. As a poet, Crane broke from almost every poetic tradition and pioneered a style that was truly singular. He called his poems "lines," rarely gave them titles and eschewed rhyme, verse, stanzas and the popular subject matter of the day. For that reason, many dismiss his poems as irrelevant, but he anticipated many of the techniques that the Modernist poets would go on to explore in depth. Most of these poems are only a few lines long, but they pack a surprising punch

A personal record by Joseph Conrad( )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Personal Record (1912) both documents and fictionalizes Joseph Conrad's early life and the opening stages of his careers as a writer and as a seaman. It is also an artistic and political manifesto. The introduction traces Conrad's sources and gives the history of writing and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus set out the textual history. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places, and gloss foreign terms. Four maps and a genealogical table supplement this explanatory material. This edition of A Personal Record, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's reminiscences and the volume's two prefaces in forms more authoritative than any so far printed."--Jacket
