The letters of Charles Dickens by Charles Dickens( Book )

1 edition published in 1880 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The natural history of Selborne by Gilbert White( Book )

1 edition published in 1789 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a compilation of 44 letters from White to zoologist Thomas Pennant, and 66 letters to Daines Barrington, a member of the Royal Society along with White. The original edition also included 26 letters on the antiquities, but it is his Natural History that has become an indispensable part of the Western Canon. White used these letters to document his meticulous observations of birds, plants and animals in the countryside around his home, at Selborne in Hampshire. He is often considered England’s first ecologist. This work is a classic not only for its value as an Enlightenment study of landscape and nature, but even more so for it being a great piece of literature, written in a style that is timeless, providing an atmosphere that is unmatched in its ability to pull the reader into the tranquil world around White’s home in the 18th century English countryside"--Books and Vines
Casa Guidi windows : a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning( Book )

1 edition published in 1851 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1847, Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-61) moved with her new husband to an apartment in Florence, in the wake of perhaps the most famous literary courtship of the nineteenth century. She soon took to calling their home the Casa Guidi. From there, she observed the events of the early Risorgimento. It was at this time that she produced some of her finest work, including Aurora Leigh and Casa Guidi Windows. An impressionistic and thoroughly atypical landmark in the Romantic canon, the latter was written in two parts, separated by several years. Beginning with the memory of a singing child and a lush description of Florence's beauty, the first part explores the air of optimism that permeates both the city and the narrator. By the second, disillusionment is rife: Florence has become the scene of demonstrations and broken political promises. This reissue of the 1851 first edition includes Barrett Browning's own introduction

The thirteen-book Prelude by William Wordsworth( Book )

1 edition published in 1915 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wordsworth's great autobiographical poem, subtitled "Growth of a poet's mind", was completed in 1805-6. During the rest of his life his interest in the work persisted, and the poem was several times revised, to be published soon after his death in 1850. Originally intended as the first part of a massive three-part poem, "The prelude" contains some of the greatest poetry Wordsworth wrote on those events and feelings of his youth which lie behind so much of his most powerful work

The plays of Christopher Marlowe by William Shakespeare( Book )

2 editions published in 1632 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tamburlaine the Great - I and II, Dr Faustus (A Text and B Text) The Jew of Malta, Edward II, The Massacre at Paris, Dido Queen of Carthage. With Introductions by Emma Smith. If Shakespeare had died at the age Marlowe died, there would have been no question that Marlowe was the leading figure in English Renaissance drama. This edition of all his plays shows why. The plays give us a clear picture of Marlowe as a radical theatrical poet of great linguistic and dramatic daring, whose characters constantly strive to break out of the social, religious and rhetorical bonds within which they are confined. Accused during his lifetime of blasphemy and homosexuality, Marlowe still has the power to challenge our assumptions about conventional morality, through his innovative theatricality. By placing less-known plays such as The Massacre at Paris and Dido Queen of Carthage alongside the acknowledged masterpieces Edward II and Dr Faustus, this edition gives a full picture of Marlowe's distinctive and provocative talent
