Gerard Manley Hopkins by Gerard Manley Hopkins( Book )
7 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Between the end of his study of theology in 1877 and the respite of his tertianship in 1881 he held seven different posts up and down the country from London and Oxford to Liverpool and Glasgow. The final five years of his life were spent in Ireland as Professor of Greek and Latin Literature in the newly formed Catholic University College, Dublin. Here he was beset by overwork, distress at Irish hatred of England, and most of all, despite writing a number of poems now considered among his very best, by the growing conviction that he could not accomplish any literary work of recognized value. He died of typhoid in June 1889
Gerald Manley Hopkins and the Victorian visual world by Catherine Phillips( )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first of eight volumes of Hopkins's Collected Works to be published, Oxford Essays and Notes presents a remarkable cache of previously unpublished papers, including forty-five essays which Hopkins produced during his undergraduate career at Oxford (1863-1867), only seven of which were reproduced in the 1959 edition of Journals and Papers. Topics range from Platonic philosophy to theories of the imagination, from ancient history to then-contemporary politics and voting rights. Also included are notes from a commonplace book, a remarkable 'dialogue' about aesthetics (featuring a fictionalized John Ruskin figure), and the lecture notes Hopkins prepared in the winter of 1868 while teaching at John Henry Newman's Oratory School in Birmingham - writings in which he explores, for the first time, the theories of inscape and instress so central to his poetic practice.The edition is fully annotated and provides a detailed introduction that situates historically Hopkins's academic and creative efforts."--BOOK JACKET
Robert Bridges : a biography by Catherine Phillips( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Robert Bridges is best known today for having been the editor and champion of his friend Gerard Manley Hopkins, and comparatively little attention has been paid to his own life and work. In this, the first full-length biography of Bridges, Catherine Phillips seeks to redress the balance by focusing on Bridges' long and full life, and on his achievements as a poet and literary commentator. Born in 1844, Bridges lived through the social and cultural upheavals of the First World War and its aftermath. Having trained and practised as a doctor, he published influential critical essays and several volumes of verse culminating in 1929 with publication of The Testament of Beauty, a hugely successful book-length poem. He experimented with verse forms and was interested in orthography and etymology, co-founding the Society for Pure English in 1913, the same year in which he was appointed Poet Laureate. Bridges' fascination with developments in science, philosophy, psychology, music and literature led to friendships with figures such as Roger Fry, W. B. Yeats, George Santayana, and Hopkins. Bridges' perspective throws new light on their characters and attitudes. Drawing on previously unpublished material and family archives, Catherine Phillips reveals a far more complex and troubled man than has been thought, and paints in addition a portrait of an age in transition

Greek vases in the Imperial Hermitage Museum : the history of the collection, 1816-69 : with addenda et corrigenda to Ludolf Stephani, Die Vasen-Sammlung der kaiserlichen Ermitage (1869) by Anastasia Bukina( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg has one of the world's great collections of Greek vases. In addition to the numerous vases and fragments found on Russian territory, it includes those found in Italy and acquired directly or purchased from other collectors, most notably the Marquis Campana, Antonio Giuseppe Pizzati and Countess Laval. The history of this part of the Hermitage collection of vases has never before been told in full. Taking Ludolf Stephani's catalogue of 1869, Die Vasensammlung der Kaiserlichen Ermitage, as a starting point and studying a vast body of previously ignored archive documents, the authors (two of them curators of Greek vases in the Hermitage Museum) follow the formation of the collection up to 1869, establishing its sources and identifying a number of previously under-estimated or ignored Russian collectors of antiquities. The Hermitage collection is set not only within the Russian cultural context but within the wider picture of a pan-European interest in antiquities and their display. Since Stephani's catalogue is still the main source for scholars of vases and vase collections, the book includes a valuable list of addenda and corrigenda to the provenances he provides for vases from private collections (those found during excavations on Russian territory are largely correct)."--Publisher's website
