Most widely held works by Arthur Symons
The symbolist movement in literature by Arthur Symons( Book )
92 editions published between 1899 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,789 libraries worldwide
First published in 1899 , The Symbolist Movement in Literature was a highly influential work of criticism and introduced the French Symbolists to an Anglophone readership. Arthur Symons's interest in writers such as Verlaine and Mallarm puts him at the heart of contemporary debates about Decadence and Symbolism in fin-de-si cle literature, but his work was also a formative influence on modernist writers such as James Joyce, George Eliot, Ezra Pound, and William Butler Yeats, helping to shape the role of the Image in modernist writing. This new critical edition makes available a key text that has been out of print for more than 50 years. It includes an introduction, chronology, and notes, together with appendices presenting the full text of Symons' essay "The Decadent Movement in Literature" and a selection of his translations of French poetry

The renaissance by Walter Pater( Book )
21 editions published between 1873 and 1982 in English and held by 1,216 libraries worldwide
Pater's graceful essays discuss the achievements of Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and other artists. Included is his celebrated discussion of the Mona Lisa in a study of Da Vinci. This book concludes with an uncompromising advocacy of hedonism, urging readers to experience life as fully as possible. His cry of ""art for art's sake"" became the manifesto of the Aesthetic Movement, and his assessments of Renaissance art have influenced generations of readers. Oscar Wilde called this collection of essays the ""holy writ of beauty.""
