An approach to literature by Cleanth Brooks( Book )

46 editions published between 1942 and 1975 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Approach to Literature provides a very liberal selection of fiction, poetry and drama, and it is scarecely to be expected that the book will be regularly used from cover to cover. What we have tried to do, now more positively than ever, is to give teachers room to maneuver, a range of choices out of which they can tailor a course to their special needs and to the tastes and capacities of their students

On the prejudices, predilections, and firm beliefs of William Faulkner : essays by Cleanth Brooks( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It seems appropriate, if not inevitable, that one of our best critics should be the foremost authority on one of our best novelists. Cleanth Brooks, the author of three seminal studies of William Faulkner, was a serious student of that master craftsman's fiction for more than four decades. In this collection, Brooks considers many of the important characteristics of Faulkner's work. He focuses more specifically than he has in the past on certain questions and in some instances offers rebuttals to what he considers unfair assessments of Faulkner. These essays are vintage Brooks

Paradise lost : authoritative text, sources and backgrounds, criticism by John Milton( Book )

39 editions published between 1645 and 1968 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written at a time of personal and political crisis in Milton's career (1658-65), Paradise Lost is the greatest epic poem in English literature. It had an immense influence on the English Romantics and, through them, on modern poetry. This Norton Critical edition is based on the 1674 edition of the poem, the last to appear in Milton's lifetime, with a few emendations and adoptions from the first edition and from the scribal manuscript, and noted. Gordon Tesky provides readers with a freshly edited text intended for those approaching Milton for the first time. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, the latter within the limits imposed by Milton's syntax. The text of Paradise Lost is accompanied by an introduction, an introduction, an account of Milton's life, ample annotations, a glossary, and suggestions for further reading. Also included is an unusually rich criticism section, which collects forty-eight diverse commentaries and interpretations, culled from the enormous body of scholarly writing on the poem. -- From Back Cover
