Tolkien : maker of Middle-Earth by Catherine McIlwaine( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly illustrated book explores the huge creative endeavour behind Tolkien's enduring popularity. Lavishly illustrated with over 300 images of his manuscripts, drawings, maps and letters, the book traces the creative process behind his most famous literary works--'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion' and reproduces personal photographs and private papers (some of which have never been seen before in print). Tolkien drew on his deep knowledge of medieval literature and language to inform his literary imagination. Six introductory essays cover some of the main themes in Tolkien's life and work including the influence of northern languages and legends on the creation of his own legendarium; his concept of 'Faerie' as a literary construct; the central importance of his invented languages in his fantasy writing; his visual imagination and its emergence in his artwork; and the encouragement he derived from the literary group known as the Inklings. This book brings together the largest collection of original Tolkien material ever assembled in a single volume. Drawing on the archives of the Tolkien collections at the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford, and Marquette University, Milwaukee, as well as private collections, this exquisitely produced catalogue draws together the worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien--scholarly, literary, creative and domestic--offering a rich and detailed understanding and appreciation of this extraordinary author.

Volcanoes : encounters through the ages by D. M Pyle( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, volcanic eruptions have captured our imaginations. Whether as signposts to an underworld, beacons to ancient mariners, or as an extraordinary manifestation of the natural world, volcanoes have intrigued many people, who have left records of their encounters in letters, reports and diaries and through sketches and illustrations. This book tells the stories of volcanic eruptions around the world, using original illustrations and first-hand accounts to explore how our understanding of volcanoes has evolved through time. Written accounts include Pliny's description of the 79 CE eruption of Vesuvius, stories recounted by seventeenth-century seafarers, and reports of expeditions made by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century natural historians, including Alexander von Humboldt and Charles Darwin. Illustrations range from fragments of scrolls, buried in the great eruption of Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii, to Athanasius Kircher's extraordinarily detailed sketches, made in the seventeenth century, to the spectacular London sunsets caused by Krakatoa's eruption in 1883. They also include the first photograph of a volcanic eruption and twenty-first-century imaging of Santorini. These varied and compelling accounts enrich our perspective on current studies of volcanoes and challenge us to think about how we might use our contemporary understanding of volcanology to prepare for the next big eruption

Mapping Shakespeare's world by Peter Whitfield( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare never set a play in his own Elizabethan London. From the castle in Elsinore where Hamlet avenges his father's death to Cleopatra's Alexandria at the height of the Roman Empire to the seaport town in Cyprus where we await the arrival of Othello, each of Shakespeare's plays is set in a time or space remote from his primary audience. Why is this? How much did the Bard and his contemporaries know about the foreign lands his characters often inhabit? What expectations did an audience have if the curtains rose on a play which claimed to take place in ancient Troy or the Pyrenean kingdom of Navarre in northern Spain? Mapping Shakespeare's World explores these questions with surprising results. It has often been said that setting is irrelevant to Shakespeare's plays -- that, wherever they are set, their enduring appeal lies in their ability to speak to broad questions of human nature. Peter Whitfield shows that, on the contrary, many of Shakespeare's locations were carefully chosen for their ability to convey subtle meanings an Elizabethan audience would have picked up on and understood. Through the use of paintings, drawings, contemporary maps and geographical texts, Whitfield suggests answers to such questions as where Illyria was located, why The Merry Wives of Windsor could only have taken place in Windsor, and how two utterly different comedies -- The Comedy of Errors and Pericles, Prince of Tyre -- both came to take place in ancient Ephesus

The victories of love by Coventry Patmore( )

3 editions published between 1878 and 2003 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore was born on July 23rd 1823 at Woodford in Essex. Although he is still relatively unknown his stature as a Victorian Poet continues to increase. After some uneven success at writing poetry in 1846 Coventry came to the post of printed book supernumary assistant at the British Museum, a post he occupied for nineteen years, devoting his spare time to poetry. In 1853 he was to republish Tamerton Church Tower, the more successful of his pieces from Poems of 1844, adding several new poems which showed the great strides he had made in both concept and execution. In 1854 the first part of his much loved The Angel in the House appeared. In 1877 he published The Unknown Eros, which contains his perhaps finest poetic work, and in the following year Amelia, his own favourite among his poems. It is at this time that he also began to write essays beginning with English Metrical Law. Following this in 1879 with a volume of papers entitled Principle in Art, and in 1893 with Religio Poetae. This volume, the first of two on his poems contains Parts I & II of The Victories Of Love

Magical tales : myth, legend and enchantment in children's books by Bodleian Library( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A faun carrying an umbrella; a hobbit who lives in a hole; a mysterious name, Lyra; an ill-treated schoolboy with a scar and a secret. Children's fantasy books often begin with resonant images. However, they also begin in an author's reading practices. How do children's authors incorporate myths and legends into their work? And how do myths and legends change as a result? In this illustrated collection of essays a team of academic experts trace the magical tales from Norse myth, Arthurian legend and medieval literature which have inspired the finest writers for children, including C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Alan Garner. Drawing on collections of manuscripts and rare books in the Bodleian Library, additional chapters put the spotlight on spell books, grimoires and books that do magic, as well as exploring stunning examples of pop-up books, harlequinades and concertina panoramas from the Opie Collection of Children's Literature. Other writers under discussion include children's authors of the Victorian era, such as George MacDonald, Rudyard Kipling and E. Nesbit, and twentieth-century writers Susan Cooper, Diana Wynne Jones and Philip Pullman. Through wide-ranging analysis these essays show how literature and tales from the Middle Ages and earlier still have been reinterpreted for each generation and continue to have a profound impact on writers of fantasy books for children today
Supplementary catalogue of Turkish manuscripts in the Bodleian Library : with reprint of the 1930 catalogue by H. Ethé by Günay Kut( )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and Turkish and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1930 the Clarendon Press published a Catalogue of the Persian, Turkish, Hindustani, and Pushtu MSS in the Bodleian Library. Part 2 of this catalogue included all Turkish MSS acquired before 1900, compiled by H. Ethe (out of print since 1958). A supplementary catalogue has now been compiled by Professor Gunay Kut, Kemal Ataturk Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford 1989-90, which contains all Turkish MSS acquired by the Bodleian Library since 1900. Both the supplementary catalogue (approximately 356 entries) and a reprint of the original catalogue (approximately 280 entries) are issued as one volume, with an introduction by Professor Kut, an explanation of the numbering to be used, and a romanization table. The volume will contain fully cross-referenced name and title indexes covering Ethe as well as the supplementary catalogue. The entries are classified under subjects such as the Koran, Sufism, Islamic history and legend, jurisprudence, history, biography, medicine, botany, geography, divans and mesnevis, encyclopedias, dictionaries and grammars: the catalogue throws light on almost all scholarly aspects of the Turkish world
