Themes and variations in Shakespeare's sonnets by J. B Leishman( Book )

71 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1961. This study analyses Shakespeare's treatment of the universal themes of Beauty, Love and Time. He compares Shakespeare with other great poets and sonnet writers - Pindar, Horace and Ovid, with Petrarch, Tasso and Ronsart, with Shakespeare's own English predecessors and contemporaries, notably Spenser, Daniel and Drayton and with John Donne.

12 editions published in 1964 in 3 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The definitive bilingual version of Rilke's New Poems--faithful to the original German, with insightful commentary on every poem. Rainer Maria Rilke is one of the world's best-selling poets, and New Poems contains many of his most iconic pieces. Throughout, Rilke he is obsessed with shapes and different layers of physical containment--from an image held in a panther's eye to a cathedral window. Translator Joseph Cadora has created the definitive English-language version through meticulous faithfulness to Rilke's German and insightful commentary on each of the four hundred-plus poems. As Cadora said in an interview, 'I tried to stay true to the vision of Rilke that would invite the reader into his world, not mine.'" -- Publisher's description
