William Wordsworth by Harold Bloom( Book )
7 editions published between 1937 and 2009 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Poet laureate of England from 1843 until his death in 1850, William Wordsworth is often credited as being one of the founders of English Romanticism. The 1798 joint publication of Wordsworth's and Coleridge's "Lyrical Ballads" marked a turning point in English poetry, as poets began to emphasize imagination and feeling over the primacy of reason. Wordsworth's poems focused on the natural and the ordinary, as based on the 'real language of men'. In his preface to the third edition of "Lyrical Ballads", Wordsworth set forth his definition of poetry as 'the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings from emotions recollected in tranquility'. The criticism contained in this volume considers Wordsworth's major works and attests to his lasting influence on poetry. Student researchers will appreciate the chronology of Wordsworth's life, an index of the volume, and an introductory essay by esteemed critic Harold Bloom -- Product Description

Romeo and Juliet : Young Actors in Training by Anne Collins( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
It is perhaps the most famous love story in history, so famous that it needs no introduction. Even so, its tragic aspects are worth discussing. Although it shares many of the qualities of tragedy in the classical sense, it concerns a love that is doomed not for any fault in the hero or heroine but because their love is too good for their world. This play follows young drama students who prepare, perform, and share their thoughts on Act II, Scene 2, from Romeo and Juliet - the legendary balcony scene. Is there a better way to explore the most romantic passage in English literature than through the youthful discovery of its power on the stage?
