Dickens at work by John Butt( Book )

51 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks a new departure in the study of Dickens. The authors make use of first-hand evidence of Dickens' actual methods and conditions of work; much of this evidence is examined and co-ordinated here for the first time. It includes Dickens' detailed manuscript notes for novels, with a complete transcript of these for every instalment and chapter of David Copperfield. Seven other books are chosen, so that the different stages of his career and different kinds of work are well represented. The volume illustrates what modes of planning Dickens evolved as best suited to his genius and t
Candide : or, Optimism by Voltaire( Book )

34 editions published between 1947 and 2004 in English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the indifferent shrug and callous inertia that this 'optimism' concealed which so angered Voltaire, who found the 'all for the best' approach a patently inadequate response to suffering, to natural disasters - such as the recent earthquakes in Lima and Lisbon - not to mention the questions of illness and man-made war. Moreover, as the rebel whose satiric genius had earned him not only international acclaim, but two stays in the Bastille, flogging and exile, Voltaire knew personally what suffering involved. In Candide he whisks his young hero and friends through a ludicrous variety of tortures, tragedies and reversals of fortune, in the company of Pangloss, a 'metaphysico-theologo-cosmolo-nigologist' of unflinching optimism. The result is one of the glories of eighteenth-century satire

Selected poetry by William Wordsworth( Book )

11 editions published between 1964 and 1979 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most inclusive single-volume cloth edition of his poetry available, "Selected Poetry" represents Wordsworth's prolific output from the poems that changed the face of English poetry first published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798 to the late "Yarrow Revisited". Wordsworth's poetry is celebrated for its deep feeling, it use of ordinary speech, the love of nature it expresses, and its representation of commonplace things and events. There is no middle ground for readers of Wordsworth. There is a sharp divide between those who are deeply impassioned about his work and those for whom it is too radical and overtly romantic. Wordsworth changed the aesthetic of poetry with a seriousness of purpose and a deeper claim to "suffering and joy, in suffering not less than joy." In this new Modern Library hard cover edition edited by the imminent critic and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mark Van Doren with a new introduction by noted Romanticist David Bromwich, readers will find the most inclusive single volume of Wordsworth's poetry currently available. Spanning the years from 1787 through 1834, this is a complete and well-selected collection that represents Wordsworth's prolific creative output
