Lady Caroline Lamb : a biography by Paul Douglass( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lady Caroline Lamb, among Lord Byron's many lovers, stands out--vilified, portrayed as a self-destructive nymphomaniac--her true story has never been told. Now, Paul Douglass provides the first unbiased treatment of a woman whose passions and independence were incompatible with the age in which she lived. Taking into account a traumatic childhood, Douglass explores Lamb's so-called "erotomania" and tendency towards drug abuse and madness--problems she and Byron had in common. In this portrait, she emerges as a person who sacrificed much for the welfare of a sick child, and became an artist in her own right. Douglass illuminates her novels and poetry, her literary friendships, and the lifelong support of her husband and her publisher, John Murray

The Crisis in modernism : Bergson and the vitalist controversy( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modernist movement has been regarded as representing a crisis point in Western thought. This volume looks at that crisis in terms of its reinterpretation of ideas concerning vitalism: the animation of the universe (whether spiritual or based in physical energies). Beginning with vitalism's historical background in the Enlightenment and the nineteenth century and moving through scientific, philosophical, and literary disciplines, the contributors chart the progress of vitalism and its influence on modernist thought. The focal point is the work of Henri Bergson, whose part in this powerful reinterpretation had a considerable bearing on European and American intellectual life, and yet led to a vehement rejection of his work. A previously untranslated and little-known essay by Mikhail Bakhtin will be of special interest in this stimulating collection, which includes original contributions from leading scholars in literature, the history of science, biology, and philosophy, and comprises a wide-ranging reassessment of "the perpetual crises of modernity."
Dante and Italy in British Romanticism by Frederick Burwick( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting with a new understanding of what Romantic-era literature is--and who wrote it--the essays here reassess British Romanticism in light of Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, Alfieri, and contemporary Italian figures such as Paganini and the improvvisatore Tommaso Sgricci. The British absorption of Italian literature and culture was mediated by authors residing in Florence, Naples, Pisa, and Rome, including Wordsworth, Coleridge, Hunt, Byron, the Shelleys, and Hemans. Providing insights on topics from the artistic practice of improvisation to the politics of nationalism, this volume ... extends our understanding between the relations between British and Italian culture."--

T.S. Eliot, Dante and the idea of Europe by Paul Douglass( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.S. Eliot greatly enhanced Dante's profound influence on European literature. The essays in this volume explore Dante's importance through a focus on Eliot. Probing the questions what Eliot made of Dante, and what Dante meant to Eliot, the essays here assess the legacy of modernism by engaging its "classicist" roots, covering a wide spectrum of topics stemming from Dante's relevance to the poetry and criticism of Eliot. The essays reflect on Eliot's aesthetic, philosophical, and religious convictions in relation to Dante, his influence upon literary modernism through his embracing and championing of the Florentine, and his desire to promote European unity. The first section of the book deals with aesthetic and philosophical issues related to Eliot's engagement with Dante, beginning with Jewel Spears Brooker's masterful essay on the concepts of immediate experience and primary consciousness in Eliot's work, and moving on to essays considering his idea of a "unified sensibility," as well as Eliot's engagement with Hindu-Buddhist and Christian themes and motifs. The second part of the book focuses on Dante's importance to Eliot's founding work in the modernist movement. In what ways did Dante directly and indirectly influence the exemplary path that Eliot blazed for his contemporaries, especially Ezra Pound? How early did Dante's influence show itself in Eliot's work? Why was he unable to complete the great trilogy he seems to have sought to write, based on Dante's Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso? These questions and their answers lead to the book's final section, which considers Eliot's (and Dante's) role in the formation of a twentieth-century concept of Europe. Incisive essays on Eliot's varied sources of "tradition" in his attempt to promote the idea of a European union and his anxiety over the heritage of Romanticism are capped by a magisterial contribution from Dominic Manganiello showing precisely how Eliot's reformulation of the Dantesque "European Epic" continues to influence the work of Anglo-European and Commonwealth writers
