Ten miracle plays by R. George Thomas( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 1969 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces readers to medieval English drama, and in that sense can be regarded as a useful primer for newcomers to the field. It is concerned not to oversimplify, but to give an accurate impression of the wide range and the individual excellences of the plays; it views them as parts of a medieval pageant and as a lively dramatic recreation in their own right. All the main cycles are represented in a series of ten plays which have not been readily available in selections of Middle English texts

Edward Thomas, professional author, essayist, and critic, was thirty-nine when he was killed in the Arras offensive on Easter Day, 1917. Six months later his first collection of poems was published and his literary reputation secured. These Selected Letters present a uniquely vivid portrait of Thomas's life, from his time as an undergraduate at Oxford through to his final days at the Front. Chosen from more than 2,000 extant letters from Thomas to his family and literary friends - including Robert Frost, Walter de la Mare, and Eleanor Farjeon - the selection traces his struggle to establish himself as a writer, his long and successful fight against depression, and, amid the strain of marriage which sometimes brought much agony, the strength of his love for his wife Helen. The letters, which formed a key source for R. George Thomas's highly praised biography of the poet, help substantiate the editor's belief that despite Thomas's immense prose output and the late flowering of his verse in 1914-1916, the name and nature of poetry was Edward Thomas's dominant lifelong concern

The collected poems and war diary, 1917 by Edward Thomas( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though sometimes classified with Owen, Rosenberg and Sassoon as a 'war poet', he was rather a poet who died tragically in the war, and whose main subjects were the English countryside and its people, and the solitude of the observing self. The present edition offers the complete poems together with detailed editorial apparatus in what has become acknowledged as the standard edition by R. George Thomas. It also includes Thomas's remarkable prose War Diary of 1917
Letters to Helen : and an appendix of seven letters to Harry and Janet Hooton by Edward Thomas( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Letters to Helen, edited from original manuscripts held in libraries in Aberystwyth and Cardiff, includes twenty one of the more than one thousand letters which the poet Edward Thomas sent to his wife Helen and eighteen of her replies. They give us a vivid insight into the heart of their legendary relationship, recounted in Under Storm's Wing, Helen's memoirs and their daughter Myfanwy's recollections. Thomas's life was tragically cut short in France in 1917." "Helen and Edward were together for twenty-one years. The letters evoke a provincial and settled world of books and nature, the hardships love weathered, and the change that came in 1915." "For the first time both sides of the correspondence are edited together, providing an unposed narrative portrait of one of our finest rural poets. Thomas's early letters to Harry and Jane Hooton complete this rich collection."--Jacket
