"Famously sceptical about Christianity, unexpectedly sympathetic to the barbarian invaders and the Byzantine Empire, constantly aware of how political leaders often achieve the exact opposite of what they intend, Gibbon was alert to both the broad pattern of events and the significant revealing detail. Attacked for its enlightened views on politics, sexuality and religion, the first volume was none the less soon to be found 'on every table' and was widely acclaimed for the elegance of its prose. Gripping, powerfully intelligent and wonderfully entertaining, it is the greatest work of history in the English language, and ranks as one of the literary masterpieces of its age." "This abridgement is based on David Womersley's three-volume Penguin Classics edition of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Complete chapters from all three volumes, linked by extended bridging passages, capture the style, the argument and the architecture of the whole work." --Book Jacket+-+491289596549517ocn044018976book20000.66A companion to literature from Milton to BlakeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"The Companion is composed of over fifty contributions from leading scholars in the field. These essays offer students a comprehensive and accessible survey of the field from a wide range of perspectives, but also give researchers and faculty the opportunity to update their acquaintance with new critical and scholarly work." "The volume meets the needs of an intellectual world increasingly given over to inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary study by covering philosophical, political, cultural and historical, as well as literary, writing. Unlike other similar volumes, the main body of the Companion consists of readings of individual texts, both those commonly and less commonly studied."--BOOK JACKET+-+K03767681542810ocn017548271book19880.70Womersley, DavidThe transformation of The decline and fall of the Roman EmpireHistory+-+01850867053243828ocn062430792book20060.66Liberty and American experience in the eighteenth centuryHistory"Liberty and American Experience in the Eighteenth Century presents new essays on central themes of the American Founding period by some of today's preeminent scholars of American history." "In ten essays, these writers explore various specific aspects of the zeitgeist, among them Burke's theories on property rights and government, the relations between religious and legal understandings of liberty, the significance of Protestant beliefs on the founding, the economic background to the Founders' thought on governance, moral sense theory contrasted with natural rights, and divisions of thought on the nature of liberty and how it was to be preserved." --Book Jacket+-+047124013533312ocn041468474book19990.63Womersley, DavidRestoration drama : an anthology+-+27545768153243059ocn047221795book20020.82Womersley, DavidGibbon and the 'Watchmen of the Holy City' : the historian and his reputation, 1776-1815Criticism, interpretation, etcBiography"The subject of this book is the story of the conflict between Gibbon and those he mockingly dubbed the 'Watchmen of the Holy City', and it explores the ramifications of an elusive aspect of authorship. By considering the sequence of interactions between the historian and his readership, Womersley makes possible a more intimate understanding of what might be called Gibbon's experience of himself. At the same time he deepens our knowledge of the conditions of English authorship during the later decades of the eighteenth and the early decades of the nineteenth centuries, from the opening of the war with the American colonies, down to the successful conclusion of the wars with revolutionary and Napoleonic France."--Cover+-+08823634652923ocn849937026file20100.59Nedham, MarchamontThe excellencie of a free-state or, the right constitution of a commonwealthHistory+-+03532401352568ocn437082551book20090.82Womersley, DavidDivinity and stateHistory"In 1589 the Privy Council encouraged the Archbishop of Canterbury to take steps to control the theatres, which had offended authority by putting on plays which addressed 'certen matters of Divinytie and of State unfitt to be suffred'." "How had questions of divinity and state become entangled? The Reformation had invested the English Crown with supremacy over the Church, and religious belief had thus been transformed into a political statement. In the plentiful chronicle literature of the sixteenth century, questions of monarchical legitimacy and religious orthodoxy became intertwined as a consequence of the demand for a usable national past created by the high political developments of the 1530s. Divinity and State explores the ramifications of these events in the English historiography and historical drama of the sixteenth century."--Jacket+-+99100744652355ocn056065078book20050.90"Cultures of Whiggism" : new essays on English literature and culture in the long eighteenth centuryHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"The essays collected here explore the literary culture that arose from and supported what Pitt the Elder referred to as the "great spirit of Whiggism" that animated English politics during the eighteenth century. From the prehistory of Whiggism in the court of Charles II to the fractures opened up within it by the French Revolution in the 1790s, the interactions between Whiggish politics and literature are sampled and described in groundbreaking essays that range widely across the fields of eighteenth-century political prose, poetry, and the novel."--BOOK JACKET+-+01438692352309ocn038188168book19970.84Edward Gibbon : bicentenary essaysBiography21311ocn780288844book20120.21Swift, JonathanGulliver's travelsCriticism, interpretation, etcJuvenile worksBiographyComic books, strips, etcGlossaries, vocabularies, etcFictionDictionariesStudy guidesRecords and correspondenceVoyages, ImaginaryAdventure storiesFantasy fictionGraphic novelsHigh interest-low vocabulary booksSatireYoung adult works"Gulliver's Travels is one of the few works of English literature which is also a landmark in world literature. Jonathan Swift's account of Lemuel Gulliver's adventures in the fantastical societies of 'remote nations' was an instant best-seller on publication in 1726 and has remained in the public imagination ever since, as both a satiric fantasy and an analysis of the human condition. This scholarly edition offers an authoritative text, based on the widest possible historical collation of the many editions published in Swift's lifetime; a detailed introduction and textual apparatus; and appendices and illustrations presenting important ancillary material with new clarity. Extensive notes and commentary open out the many layers of meaning and allusion in the text, identify new sources and parallels and offer wide-ranging historical background information. An important addition to the Cambridge Swift Edition, this volume will be indispensable for scholars and students of eighteenth-century literature and ideas."--Publisher's website21213ocn042200592book19980.50Burke, EdmundA philosophical enquiry into the origin of our ideas of the sublime and beautiful : and other pre-revolutionary writings"A classic of modern aesthetics, A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful remains both influential and engaging." "From the awesome thrill of the sublime to the delightful perfection of the beautiful, Edmund Burke (1729-97) gives an involving account of our sensory, imaginative and judgemental process and its relation to artistic pleasure. This edition also includes several of Burke's early political works which illustrate that, despite his later opposition to the Revolution in France, he took a liberal and humane view of society and government." "This authoritative edition has securely established texts, and, in his illuminating Introduction, David Womersley clearly reveals the cross-pollination of Burke's aesthetic and political thinking: the power exercised by art and the art of exercising power."--BOOK JACKET+-+60718959652035ocn051109071book20030.47Johnson, SamuelSelected essays"With his wit, eloquence and shrewd perception of contemporary morals, Samuel Johnson was the most versatile of Augustan writers. His dictionary, dramas and poetry established his reputation, but it was the essays published in The Rambler, The Adventurer and The Idler that demonstrated the range of his talent. Tackling ethical questions such as the importance of self-knowledge, awareness of mortality, the role of the novel, and, in a lighter vein, marriage, sleep and deceit, these brilliant and thought-provoking essays are a mirror of the time in which they were written and a testament to Johnson's stature as the leading man of letters of his age." "This new edition contains a broad selection of essays presenting both the forcefully argued moral pieces of Johnson's middle years and the more light-hearted essays of his later work. The introduction places the works in their historical and literary context, and there is also a chronology of Johnson's life and times."--BOOK JACKET+-+32718959651545ocn039162447book19970.70Augustan critical writingCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+78288959651423ocn223803133book20080.22Boswell, JamesThe life of Samuel JohnsonBiographyRegarded as one of the finest literary biographies ever published, this book reveals a man of outsized appetites and private vulnerabilities, and is the source of much of what we know about one of the towering figures of English literature.
