English hours by Henry James( Book )

1 edition published in 1905 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spring was already in the air, in the town; there was no rain but there was still less sun - one wondered what had become of it, on this side of the world - and the grey mildness, shading away into black at any pretext, appeared in itself a promise.' Henry James left America for England in 1876 and remained in his adopted country for the next three decades. Arriving in Liverpool, he made his way first to London, the 'dreadful, delightful city', which he would come to both love and hate. James revelled in the exoticism and immensity of all that was unknown to him and his writing spills over wit

First published in 1884, and revised substantially in 1900, A little tour in France recounts James's six-week tour of provincial France as he notes France may be Paris, but Paris is not France.

1 edition published in 1902 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In all times and ages, the deeds of the men who sail the deep as its policemen or it soldiery have been sung in praise. It is time for chronicle of the high courage, the reckless daring, and oftentimes the noble self-sacrifice of those who use the Seven Seas to extend the markets of the world, to bring nations nearer together, to advance science, and to cement the world into one great interdependent whole"--Introduction
Wessex poems : and other verses by Thomas Hardy( Book )

1 edition published in 1899 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wessex was the 'partly-real, partly-dream' county that formed the backdrop for most of Hardy's writings - named after an Anglo-Saxon kingdom and modelled on the real counties of Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. The poems deal with classic Hardy themes of disappointment in love and life and the struggle to live a meaningful life in an indifferent world. Although Hardy's poetry was not as well received as his fiction, he continued to publish collections until his death, and thanks in part to the influence of Philip Larkin he is increasingly realised as a poet of great stature
