J.M.W. Turner: his life and work; a critical biography by Jack Lindsay ( Book )
23 editions published between 1966 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In straightforward fashion, Ackroyd outlines the career of this remarkable man, who progressed rapidly from his early years as a student at the Royal Academy to prominence as one of England's foremost painters, creating dramatic works in which he explored the glowing effects of light fused with air, water, fire and steam. Turner's paintings, which often approach abstraction, astounded and shocked his critics, causing some to say he was a madman, an assessment reinforced by his eccentric, irascible character. Ackroyd shows how the artist, who never married and lived all his life with his father ₂though he had secret liaisons and two illegitimate daughters₂was obsessed with his art, but was also an astute businessman, opening his own gallery in London when he was only 29, cultivating prosperous patrons and speculating in land and houses, all the while turning out a multitude of dazzling oil paintings, watercolors and engravings. This is a short but intriguing introduction to the life and output of an artist who claimed that he knew of "no genius but the genius of hard work." Publishers Weekly

The golden asse by Apuleius ( Book )
17 editions published between 1932 and 1974 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style." --from inside jacket flap

John Bunyan, maker of myths by Jack Lindsay ( Book )
21 editions published between 1937 and 1993 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a biography of Bunyan. But there would be no excuse for re-telling the story of Bunyan's life unless one were considering it from a new angle, with a new focus. The new focus is here provided by the attempt to relate Bunyan's work in particular, and the protestant movement in general, to the social forces from which they sprang. At the same time I have tried to analyze the myth-making faculty in Bunyan and to show how his allegories take their place in the world of symbolism and myth. - Foreword
