Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

3 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eleventh century, in Persia, there lived a mathematician named Ghiyathuddin Abulfath Omar bin Ibrahim al-Khayyami--or, Omar, son of Abraham, the tent-maker. Omar wrote poetry, and while his rhymes received little attention in their day, they were rediscovered and translated into beautiful English--more than seven centuries later--by a gentleman and scholar named Edward FitzGerald. It was a meeting of minds, a great collaboration of the past and the present, and FitzGerald's rendition of those passionate verses has become one of the best loved poem cycles in the English language. With their concern for the here and now, as opposed to the hereafter, Omar Khayyam's quatrains are as romantic today as they were hundreds of years ago; they are a tribute to the power of one moment's pleasure over a lifetime of sorrow, of desire over the vicissitudes of time. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, presented here with Edward FitzGerald's original preface, is truly a classic, and it will stand forever as one of our finest monuments to love

Julia Domna by Michael Field( Book )

2 editions published in 1903 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Empress and consort of Septimus Severus and the loyal mother of sons Caracalla and Geta, Julia Domna was a visable figure throughout the Empire and a part of a dynasty which used power and force to preserve its rule. As a woman with power, she was distrusted and resented and often blamed for the corruption and civil wars of the imperial cult that followed her reign. However, in the 19th century she became the center of a literary circle that included the Brownings, Oscar Wilde, Walter Pater and other figures of the aestheticist movement

Hero and Leander by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

4 editions published between 1893 and 1894 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hero and Leander is a poetic retelling of a classic Greek legend. The poem relates a story of forbidden love in which Greek gods intervene to unite the two lovers. Hero and Leander was unfinished at the time of Christopher Marlowe's death, but was completed posthumously by George Chapman. No one is entirely sure how Marlowe himself would have finished it, but the sections that he was able to complete are notable for their unique use of verse and their lyrical beauty. Marlowe's poetic output was minimal, owing to his short life and emphasis on drama, but his position in the canon of English poetry has been cemented, thanks largely to the quality of this single, unfinished work

Poems & translations, 1850-1870 : together with the prose story Hand and soul by Dante Gabriel Rossetti( Book )

1 edition published in 1899 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First printed in the short-lived Pre-Raphaelite publication The Germ, Rossetti's early short story "Hand and Soul" tells the fictional story of an early Renaissance painter who is depressed by the failure of his art to improve the world. The painter has a vision that his own soul comes to him in the form of a beautiful woman and instructs him to paint her likeness. In doing so, the painter paints his own soul, by which Rossetti reveals that an artist should produce work which reflects his own emotions and imagination. "Hand and Soul" was chosen by William Morris to be re-printed by his Kelmscott Press, which produced beautiful, hand-printed books. Morris was closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites and went on to found the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain
