Most widely held works by Albert Mordell
The function of the poet, and other essays by James Russell Lowell( Book )

14 editions published between 1920 and 1978 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Preface: The essays herein represent the matured author as they were written in the latter part of his life, between his thirty-sixth and fifty-seventh years. The only early essay is the one on Poe. It appeared in Graham's Magazine for February, 1845, and was reprinted by Griswold in his edition of Poe. It has also been reprinted in later editions of Poe, but has never been included in any of Lowell's works. This was no doubt due to the slight break in the relations between Poe and Lowell, due to Poe's usual accusations of plagiarism. The essay still remains one of the best on Poe ever written. None of the essays in this volume has appeared in book form except a few fragments from some of the opening five essays which were reported from Lowell's lectures in the Boston Advertiser, in 1855, and were privately printed some years ago. Charles Eliot Norton performed a service to the world when he published in the Century Magazine in 1893 and 1894 some lectures from Lowell's manuscripts. These lectures are now collected and form the first five essays in this book. I have also retained Professor Norton's introductions and notes. Attention is called to his remark that "The Function of the Poet" is not unworthy to stand with Sidney's and Shelley's essays on poetry

One of the first successful attempts to apply psychonalytic concepts to literature, which heralded the advent of a significant new school of criticism which sought to uncover the unconscious sexual motivations of the writer and often revealed surprising divergences from his conscious artistic goals. In this new and revised edition, the author uses the findings of recent scholarship and modern psychanalytic research to give the reader penetrating and often startling interpretations of Poe, Coleridge, Balzac, Oscar Wilde, Keats and many others
