    Selected Poetry (Owc) * Wordsworth

    Wordsworth,William
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Wordsworth (1770-1850) is one of the most important and enduringly popular of all the English poets.Wordsworth's verse declares a belief in the power of poetry to teach by appealing to the imagination and to the `grand elementary principle of pleasure, by which man knows, and feels, and lives, and moves'. His unique relationship with the poet andpolitical activist Samuel Taylor Coleridge, founded in the political and social ferment of 1795, produced a revolution in literature, resulting in the joint volume, Lyrical Ballads (1798-1805) - a landmark in the history of English Romanticism. In thisedition the poems are given in the texts in which they first appeared, and were appreciated by Keats, Shelley, Hazlitt and other contemporaries.This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes all Wordsworth's finest lyrics, and a large sample of The Prelude (1805), his extraordinary autobiographical poem in blank verse and the first truly great acheivement of a new erain English

  • Collected Poems (Owc) (2009)

    Collected Poems - Arthur Rimbaud (Owc)

    Rimbaud, Arthur
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'Rimbaud, the poet of revolt, and the greatest' Albert CamusRimbaud is the enfant terrible of French literature, the precocious genius whose extraordinary poetry is revolutionary in its visionary, hallucinatory content and its often liberated forms. He wrote all his poems between the ages of about 15 and 21,after which he turned his back on family, friends, and France to roam the world. In his final years he was a trader in the Horn of Africa. Out of the brief, colourful life and the poetry of sensory wildness has been created the myth of Rimbaud, anenduring icon of youth, rebellion, and freedom. But behind the myth lies a poetic adventure of high ambition and painful rigour, poignant yet heroic. Rimbaud is one of the greatest French poets of all times.This bilingual edition provides all of Rimbaud's poems, with the exception of his Latin verses and some small fragments. It also includes some of his prose pieces, chosen because they offer a commentary on his poetic concerns.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    Cavafy, C. P.
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *Cavafy is the most widely known and best loved modern Greek poet. This volume presents the most authentic Greek text of the 154 authorized poems ever published, with a new English translation that faithfully conveys the rhythms and the Greek accent ofCavafy's individual voice.*The Greek text is the first to be based wherever possible on Cavafy's own final printings of his poems and is the most authentic Greek text ever to be published.*The English translation by Evangelos Sachperoglou preserves Cavafy's tone of voice and the rhythms of his poetry and is more faithful to the original than most other translations.*The Introduction is the most comprehensive ever published to accompany an edition of the poems, and dicusses their themes and the literary and historical context. Explanatory Notes gloss Greek historical names and historical events alluded to in thepoems. A Chronological List of Poems provides a helpful guide to composition history and there are indexes of Greek and English titles.'a Greek gentleman in a straw hat, standing absolutely motionless at a slight angle to the universe' E. M. ForsterE. M. Forster's description of C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) perfectly encapsulates the unique perspective Cavafy brought to bear on history and geography, sexuality and language in his poems. Cavafy writes about people on the periphery, whose religious,ethnic and cultural identities are blurred, and he was one of the pioneers in expressing a specifically homosexual sensibility. His poems present brief and vivid evocations of historical scenes and sensual moments, often infused with his distinctivesense of irony. They have established him as one of the most important poets of the twentieth century.This volume presents the most authentic Greek text of the 154 authorized poems ever published, together with a new English translation that conveys the accent and rhythm of Cavafy's individual tone of voice.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Selected Poetry - Lord Byron (Owc) * 2009

    Selected Poetry - Lord Byron (Owc) * 2009

    Byron
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Byron was a legend in his own lifetime and the dominant influence on the Romantic movement.The most European of the English writers in an age of revolution, Byron was deeply involved in contemporary events, and a passionate supporter of the struggle for Greek independence. Describing himself as `born for opposition', his work was largelydirected against what he called the `cant political, cant poetical, and cant moral' of the English and European worlds. He was rocketed to fame by the publication of Childe Harold in 1812, and lionized by society until his departure from England amid awhirlpool of private gossip and newspaper scandal in 1816. His is, in every sense, a poetry of experience, and a Romantic emphasis on the personality of the poet is the hallmark of all his verse. Relishing humour and irony, daring and flamboyant,sardonic yet idealistic, his work encompasses a sweeping range of topics, subjects, and models, embracing the most traditional and the most experimental poetic forms.This selection of the poetical works, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes such masterpieces as The Corsair, Manfred, Bebbo, and Don Juan. There are many other less familiar works and shorter lyrics, and Jerome J. McGann'sintroduction and notes give fascinating insight into Byron's world.

  • Selected Poetry - Blake (Owc) * 2008

    Selected Poetry - Blake (Owc) * 2008

    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    William Blake (1757-1827) was a poet of striking originality, whose poetic world of myth and mysticism continues to fascinate. By turns a haunting lyricist, an apocalyptic visionary, and an unorthodox thinker, Blake was for years ignored or derided.Sustained by his belief in the artistic imagination, he drafted poetry, prose visions, and epigrams, and manufactured beautiful illustrated volumes of his lyrics and verse narratives. Towards the end of his life, Blake's unique and irreducible talent wasrecognized by a group of younger artists, who rescued much of his achievement from oblivion. This selection represents the full range of Blake's accomplishment as a poet, ranging from early Poetical Sketches to late lyrics, and including such major worksas The Book of Thel, Songs of Innocence, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Visions of the Daughters of Albion, America, Songs of Experience, and Europe. The collection is chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, with Michael Mason's introductionand notes providing the ideal guide to a remarkable oeuvre.

  • Complete Poetry (Owc) * Wilde (2009)

    Complete Poetry (Owc) * Wilde (2009)

    Wilde, Oscar
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Uses a unique critical edition text`Yet each man kills the thing he loves,By each let this be heard,Some do it with a bitter look,Some with a flattering word,The coward does it with a kiss,The brave man with a sword!'A powerful poem of universal guilt and a protest against capital punishment, The Ballad of Reading Gaol is Wilde's best-known poem, yet it is quite unlike the rest of his poetry. At Oxford Wilde discarded the passion and politics of his mother's Irishnationalistic anti-famine poetry and opted to follow an English Romantic tradition, paying tribute to Keats, Swinburne, and the Pre-Raphaelites. Admiration of French masters gradually led to his writing Impressionist, even decadent poems and hiscollection Poems (1881) brought accusations of obscenity and plagiarism as well as scathing reviews. Unabashed, Wilde revised and reprinted his final `Author's Edition' in 1892, by which time he was the successful author of fiction, criticism, and LadyWindermere's Fan.This volume follows as closely as possible the chronological order of composition, highlighting autobiographical elements including the young Wilde's conflicting attitudes to Greece and Rome, pagan and Christian, and his fluctuating attraction to RomanCatholicism. The Appendix shows Wilde's original ordering, constructed with great care around a `musical' arrangement of themes. The poems reveal unexpected aspects of a literary chameleon usually identified with sparkling wit and social comedy.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • The Flowers of Evil (Owc) * 2008

    The Flowers of Evil (Owc) * 2008

    Baudelaire,Charles
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Flowers of Evil, which T. S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking sexuality and death, its unremittingirony, and its unflinching celebration of the seamy side of urban life. The volume was seized by the police, and Baudelaire and his published were put on trial for offence to public decency. Six offending poems were banned, in a conviction that was notoverturned until 1949.This bold new translation, which restores the banned poems to their original places and reveals the full richness and variety of the collection, makes available to English speakers a powerful and original version of the world. Jonathan Culler'sIntroduction outlines this vision, stressing that Baudelaire is more than just the poet of the modern city. Originally to be called `The Lesbians', The Flowers of Evil contains the most extraordinary body of love poetry. The poems also pose the questionof the role of evil in our lives, of whether there are not external forces working to frustrate human plans and to enlist men and women on appalling or stultifying scenarios not of their own making.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth ofother valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.Readership: General readers interested in Baudelaire, French poetry and 19th-century French culture.

  • Selected Poetry (Owc) Keats * 2009

    Selected Poetry - Keats (Owc) * 2009

    Keats John
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    John Keats's abiding poetic legacy is one of extraordinary and triumphant richness.Before the moment of `self-will' when he declared his intention to be a poet, Keats (1795-1821) had chosen the medical profession. His apothecary's training influenced his conception of poetry as an art that could mitigate the world's suffering. Keats'sgenerous spirit triumphed over personal sadness, finding expression in his concept of life as a `vale of Soul-making' rather than a vale of tears. He published only three volumes before his death at the age of 25, and, while many of his contemporariesquickly recognized his genius, snobbery and political hostility led the Tory press to vilify him.This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition of Keats's major works, demonstrates the remarkable growth in maturity of his verse, from early poems such as `Imitation of Spenser' and `Ode to Apollo' to later work such as 'The Eve of StAgnes', `Ode to a Nightingale', and `To Autumn'. Elizabeth Cook's introduction, notes and glossary of classical names offer helpful insights into Keats's life and work.

    Selected Poetry - Hardy (Owc)

    Hardy
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Represents all of Hardy's verse collections and gives generous samples from his finest poems.Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) remains one of the best loved of the great English poets.Hardy thought of himself as a poet all his life, although his poetic career only flowered after he had retired from novel-writing in his mid-fifties. Over the next thirty years he wrote the poems that have established him as one of the great and mostenduringly popular English poets of the twentieth century.His verse touches all the common themes of human existence: birth, childhood, love, marriage, ageing, death. If Hardy's age brings anything to them, it is an old man's ironic and elegiac sense that in life hopes are likely to be defeated and lossessustained, and that the world was not designed for human happiness.This collection is prepared by Samuel Hynes, editor of the Oxford English Texts edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Thomas Hardy, and selected from the Oxford Authors critical edition. The introduction and notes illuminate Hardy's central place inthe tradition of English poetry.

  • Selected Poetry - Pope (Owc)

    Selected Poetry - Pope (Owc)

    Pope,Alexander
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Alexander Pope (1688-1744) is regarded as the most important poet of the early eighteenth century. An invalid from infancy, Pope devoted his energies towards literature and achieved remarkable success with his first published work at the age of 21. Asuccession of brilliant poems followed, including An Essay on Criticism (1711), Windsor Forest (1713), and his masterpiece The Rape of the Lock (1712). A second period of great poetry was begun in 1728 with the appearance of the first Dunciad. All theseworks, which exhibit Pope's astonishing human insight, his wide sympathies, and powers of social observation (displayed to greatest effect in his talent for satire), feature in this selection. In his introduction - an eloquent defence of Pope's poeticpractice - Pat Rogers argues that we must abandon our Romantic conception of poetry as a record of fleeting and subjective states if we are to understand Pope fully. Instead, we must see him as an accomplished practitioner of the poetry of ideas and ofsatirical reflection on human society. This collection is chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition of Pope's major works.

    Selected Poetry (Owc) Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Coleridge
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was one of the most versatile minds in European intellectual history, and a shaping influence in the development of English poetry.As a radical young poet in the years following the French Revolution, Coleridge collaborated with Wordsworth in Lyrical Ballads (1798) and was by turns dramatist, political journalist, lecturer and religious thinker. This edition includes his two mostfamous poems, Kubla Khan and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, as well as such blank-verse `conversation' poems as The Eolian Harp, This Lime Tree Bower My Prison and Frost at Midnight.Not least of the attractions of Heather Jackson's selection is the earlier version of the Rime which she presents in full, along with the later, better-known version. Demonstrating the diversity characteristic of Coleridge's work, from earlypolitically-inspired sonnets, to an epitaph he composed for himself shortly before his death, this substantial collection is supplemented by an introduction and notes.

    The Major Works - Percy Bysshe Shelley (Owc) *2009

    Shelley, Percy Bysshe
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Major WorksEdited by Zachary Leader and Michael O'NeillOxford World's ClassicsA major new edition, freshly edited in many cases from manuscripts, of Shelley's poetry and prose. It contains the longer poems from Queen ...This major new edition, originally commissioned for the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode, brings together a unique combination of Shelley's poetry and prose - the lyric poems, plays, longer poems, criticism,and essays - to give the essence of his work and thinking. Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was a Romantic poet of radical imaginings, living in an age of change. His tempestuous life and friendship with Byron, and his tragically early death, at timesthreatened to overwhelm his legacy as a poet, but today his standing as one of the foremost English authors is assured. This freshly edited anthology - the fullest one-volume selection in English - includes all but one of the longer poems, from Queen Mabonwards, in their entirety. Only Laon and Cythna is excerpted, in a generous selection. As well as works such asPrometheus Unbound, The Mask of Anarchy, and Adonais, the volume includes a wide range of Shelley's shorter poems and much of his major prose,including A Defence of Poetry and almost all of A Philosophical View of Reform. Shelley emerges from these pages as a passionate and eloquent opponent of tyranny and a champion of human possibility. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World'sClassics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expertintroductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

  • Poems and Prose (C.Rossetti) (Owc)

    Poems and Prose (C.Rossetti) (Owc)

    Rossetti, Christina
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Christina Rossetti (1830-94) is perhaps the most contradictory of the great Victorian poets. She writes of the world's beauty, but fears that it may be deceptive, even deadly. She is a religious poet, but much of her work is driven by uncertainty. Herpoems are restrained, even secretive, but they seek nothing less than the mystery of Life and Death.This edition contains Rossetti's strongest and most distinctive work: poetry (including 'Goblin Market', 'The Prince's Progress', and the sonnet sequence 'Monna Innominata'), stories (including the complete text of Maude), devotional prose (with nearlyfifty entries from the 'reading diary' Times Flies), and personal letters. Those poems which Rossetti published, and those which she withheld from publication, are here brought together in chronological order, allowing the reader to observe her poetictrajectory. This edition also records the major revisions made by Rossetti when preparing her poems for publication. It brings together the fullest range of Rossetti's poetry and prose in one volume, and is an indispensable introduction to thisentrancing writer.
