The poetic birth : Milton's poems of 1645 by C. W. R. D Moseley( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a reading of most of the poems collected by Milton in his youth and early maturity for Humphrey Moseley's publication of "The Poems of Mr John Milton" in 1645. The edition is examined as a poetic and political manifesto, anticipating many of the ideas more fully discussed in "Paradise Lost". Dr Moseley examines the development of Milton's poetic calling, its origins, authority and national importance, and sets these ideas in their European context. Also explored is Milton's inheritance not only from Classical authors but also from the Italians and Spenser. Dr Moseley then draws attention to the significant structure of the 1645 volume and discusses the manner in which Milton presents material, which was originally written for one audience and context, to another set of readers who knew him as a highly active political figure and who were intended to read this book in the months after the battle of Naseby. A prose translation of all the Latin poems is included

Annotation
J.R.R. Tolkien by C. W. R. D Moseley( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tolkien was a specialist in a recherche field. He did not, at least initially, write for a mass audience. Yet for many in the 1960s his books, particularly Lord of the Rings, became a political badge and an interpretative text. Widely translated, his fiction won the accolade both of parody and of its own learned journal; and 'Tolkien' - or how he was read - demonstrably affected modern fantasy. This book explores how his work came to be so diversely received. Charles Moseley's critical discussion examines Tolkien's view of fiction as 'sub-creation', exploring his analysis of mythopoeia and of the status of art and literature in relation to his own practice. He argues that in the critical concerns of Tolkien and his circle lie the key to important issues in his fiction. His use of linguistic game and literary pastiche is explored without obscuring his emotional commitment to the making of myths that expressed some of his deepest fears about the world he experienced."--Jacket

A field full of folk : a village elegy by C. W. R. D Moseley( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1960s Charles Moseley and his wife bought a run-down cottage in a remote Cambridgeshire hamlet. Their new home was no picture book English village. The people, earning a hard living from their small farms and ancient machinery, treated the Moseleys kindly but with condescension. Thirty years later, Dr Moseley has written a warm, enchanting, eloquent account of how this dour place won his loyalty and, ultimately, his love. He describes the troubles and triumphs of restoring his cottage, the satisfaction of growing his own food, and the gradual mastering of ancient skills
