Most widely held works by Charles Eliot Norton
The Divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

33 editions published between 1891 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Divine Comedy" was entitled by Dante himself merely "Commedia," meaning a poetic composition in a style intermediate between the sustained nobility of tragedy, and the popular tone of elegy. The word had no dramatic implication at that time, though it did involve a happy ending. The poem is the narrative of a journey down through Hell, up the mountain of Purgatory, and through the revolving heavens into the presence of God. In this aspect it belongs to the two familiar medieval literary types of the Journey and the Vision. It is also an allegory, representing under the symbolism of the stages and experiences of the journey, the history of a human soul, painfully struggling from sin through purification to the Beatific Vision
Plain tales from the hills by Rudyard Kipling( Book )

43 editions published between 1899 and 2012 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plain Tales from the Hills, Rudyard Kipling's first collection of short stories, established his reputation and brought India to the British imagination ... Originally published for a newspaper in Lahore, when Kipling was a journalist, the tales were later revised by him to re-create as vividly as possible the sights and smells of India for readers at home."--Page 4 of cover
The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

52 editions published between 1892 and 2010 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of this new Divine Comedy presents the Italian text of the Inferno and, on facing pages, a new prose translation (the first in twenty-five years). The editor's translation brings a new power and accuracy to the rendering of Dante's extraordinary vision of Hell, with all its terror, pathos, and sardonic humor, and its penetrating analyses of the psychology of sin and the ills that plague society. The introduction and notes are designed with the first-time reader of the poem in mind but will be useful to others as well. The concise introduction presents essential biographical and historical background and a discussion of the form of the poem. The notes are more extensive than those in most translations currently available, and they contain much new material. In addition, sixteen short essays explore the autobiographical dimension of the poem, the problematic body analogy, the question of Christ's presence in Hell, and individual cantos that have been the subject of controversy, including those on homosexuality. There is an extensive bibliography, and the four indexes (to foreign words, passages cited, proper names in the notes, and to proper names in the text and translation). Illustrations include detailed maps of Italy, clearly labeled diagrams of the cosmos and of the structure of Hell, and line drawings illustrating objects and places mentioned in the poem

The correspondence of Thomas Carlyle and Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1834-1872 by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

45 editions published between 1883 and 2003 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The decade from 1820 to 1830 was a period of unusual dulness in English thought and imagination. All the great literary reputations belonged to the beginning of the century. "I have had no word from you for a long space. You wrote me a letter from Scotland after the death of your wife's mother, and full of pity for me also; and since, I have heard nothing. I confide that all has gone well and prosperously with you; that the iron Puritan is emerging from the Past, in shape and stature as he lived; and you are recruited by sympathy and content with your picture; and that the sure repairs of time and love and active duty have brought peace to the orphan daughter's heart. - Publisher
