Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the limits of Victorian vision by Oswald Doughty ( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poet and painter, founder and acknowledged leader of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) has beguiled and intrigued admirers for more than a century with his turbulent life and his romantic imagery. Rossetti, the English-born son of an Italian political refugee and brother of the poet Christina Rossetti, considered a career as a poet before seeking his fortune as an artist - and succeeding in both occupations. Unable to adapt to the discipline of formal art training, Rossetti ultimately developed a personal style that placed him at the forefront of the Victorian artistic world. Forty of Rossetti's finest works are reproduced here in large, full-color plates and accompanied by individual commentaries. An illustrated introductory text traces the details of Rossetti's fascinating life and career and sets his art in the context of his day
Poetry today : a critical guide to British poetry, 1960-1995 by Anthony Thwaite ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the most authoritative and up to date survey of contemporary British poetry. It is the third version of a successful survey that first appeared in 1973, and provides a succinct and accessible overview of British poets, movements and themes. The study begins with the poetry of Robert Graves and considers such influential figures as John Betjeman, W.H. Auden, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, but much of the book focuses on the work of poets who have come into prominence recently, including Wendy Cope, Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, Glyn Maxwell, Sean O'Brien, and the 1995 Nobel prize winner for literature Seamus Heaney. Anthony Thwaite has completely updated and expanded his earlier version
