The mid-eighteenth century by John Butt( Book )

Poems by Alexander Pope( Book )

132 editions published between 1939 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This presentation of Pope's poems, excluding only his translations of Homer, is the only one-volume edition that can lay claim to completeness and accuracy of text. It presents the corpus of Pope's poetry as printed in the highly praised Twickenham Edition, except for the 1712 version of The Rape of the Lock and other early versions of phrases preserved in the critical apparatus of the six-volume work. Pope's notes to his poems are included, as well as a generous selection of the copious annotation in the Twickenham text. This reduced version of the unsurpassed standard edition of Pope -- one of the great achievements of modern English scholarship -- will be essential to both students and scholars. The publishers are surely right in claiming that this should for long remain the standard one-volume edition of Pope's poems. The Twickenham edition, now pausing for breath before plunging into the Homer translations, has been a splendid achievement, and Professor Butt's distillation of the long labors of his fellow editors is most commendable. - Back cover

Dickens at work by John Butt( Book )

52 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,291 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 )

33 editions published between 1937 and 2004 in English and held by 1,094 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
