Selected poems of Luis de Góngora : a bilingual edition by Luis de Góngora y Argote( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 1,773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as the?Spanish Homer,? Luis de Góngora y Argote (1561?1627) is widely considered to be Spain?s greatest poet. He was both praised and vilified during his lifetime, but his reputation waned in the years after his death; in the 1920s, he was championed by the Modernists, including Federico García Lorca, and influential critics of Spanish literature, including Dámaso Alonso. Famous for intricate metaphors in baroque style and syntax, Góngora has even been immortalized as a literary term: a?gongorism? connotes an involved Latinate style. Yet despite his influence and reputation, Góngora is
Selected poems of Garcilaso de la Vega : a bilingual edition by Garcilaso de la Vega( )

2 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and English and held by 1,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Garcilaso de la Vega (ca. 1501-36), a Castilian nobleman and soldier at the court of Charles V, lived a short but glamorous life. As the first poet to make the Italian Renaissance lyric style at home in Spanish, he is credited with beginning the golden age of Spanish poetry. Known for his sonnets and pastorals, gracefully depicting beauty and love while soberly accepting their passing, he is shown here also as a calm student of love's psychology and a critic of the savagery of war. This bilingual volume is the first in nearly two hundred years to fully represent Garcilaso for an Anglophone rea

The scattered flock : part five of The marshes of Mount Liang, a new translation of the Shuihu zhuan or Water margin of Shi Nai'an and Luo Guanzhong by Nai'an Shi( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Scattered Flock, the last volume of this series of translations, contains chapters 91-120 that mark the disastrous end of the 108 heroes. The action in this volume can be divided into three parts: the campaign against Tian Hu, the campaign against Wang Qing and the campaign against Fang La. It is in the last of these that the heroes of Mount Liang begin to die. Their demise is as haphazard and casual as the scattering of the flock of geese when the Prodigy shoots them for mere amusement. But the theme of the vanity of human wishes, the emptiness of ambition, becomes prominent earlier
The language of English studies : a handbook for advanced students of English by John Dent-Young( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers advanced students help both in writing and in understanding written English. Wherever possible questions of organization, grammar, style and technique are related to purpose and meaning, with the twofold aim of increasing awareness of general effects in writing and encouraging a closer attention to detail. Students are invited to note how grammatical and stylistic choices can alter meaning, and how different linguistic forms relate to different language varieties. Whilst recommending adherence to grammatical and formal conventions of writing, this book also shows how deviation from conventions can create special meanings or carry particular associations. The purpose is to integrate efforts to improve writing with a more general interest in how the English language works
