Alone with America; essays on the art of poetry in the United States since 1950 by Richard Howard ( Book )
15 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richard Howard in the initial instance set himself the overwhelming task of a critical examination in detail of forty-one American poets as widely different as James Merrill and Gary Snyder, some celebrated and some obscure ... In this new and enlarged edition, one hundred pages longer than the original volume, he has added essays to many of the original chapters, dealing with new work by the poets originally examined ... but leaving the original text unchanged. --Atheneum
Paris in the twentieth century by Jules Verne ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A futuristic novel, written in the 1860s, describing the Paris of the 1960s, a city of cars, computers, even fax machines. The rulers are corporations, technology is god and people are expected to accept material profit as the reason for living. The novel was rejected by the publisher of the day as unrealistic

S/Z by Roland Barthes ( Book )
11 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur analyse le court récit, Sarrasine, de Balzac. Sa méthode d'analyse découpe le texte en 'lexies', des fragments dégagés de la structure narrative, de grammaire. L'auteur constate que cette façon d'analyser un récit donne au lecteur une interprétation plurielle, sans contraintes, où les réseaux sont multiples et jouent entre eux. Le texte devient une galaxie de signifiants, non une structure de signifiés

This translation of Baudelaire's magnum opus, perhaps the most powerful and influential book of verse from the 19th century, won the American Book Award for Translation. And the honor was well-deserved, for this is one of Richard Howard's greatest efforts. It's all here: a timeless translation, the complete French text, and Mazur's striking black and white monotypes in one elegant edition

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the exploits of Fabrizio del Dongo, an ardent young aristocrat who joins Napoleon's army just before the battle of Waterloo. Yet perhaps the novel's most unforgettable characters are the hero's beautiful aunt, the alluring Duchess of Sanseverina, and her lover, Count Mosca, who plot to further Fabrizio's political career at the treacherous court of Parma in a sweeping story that illuminates an entire epoch of European history." "This edition includes original illustrations by Robert Andrew Parker and Notes and a Translator's Afterword by Richard Howard."--Jacket
