Most widely held works by Lionel Trilling
The liberal imagination : essays on literature and society by Lionel Trilling( Book )
142 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,169 libraries worldwide
-- Huckleberry Finn and the novels of Henry James and F. Scott Fitzgerald, but also on such varied matters as the Kinsey Report and money in the American imagination, Trilling presents a model of the critic as both part of and apart from his society, a defender of the reflective life that, in our ever more rationalized world, seems ever more necessary--and ever more remote
Sincerity and authenticity by Lionel Trilling( Book )
78 editions published between 1971 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 2,720 libraries worldwide
"Now and then," writes Lionel Triling "it is possible to observe the moral life in process of revising itself." In this new book he is concerned with such a mutation: the process by which the arduous enterprise of sincerity, of being true to one's self, came to occupy a place of supreme importance in the moral life--and the further shift which finds that place now usurped by the darker and still more strenuous modern ideal of authenticity. Instances range over the whole of Western literature and thought, from Shakespeare to Hegel to Sartre, from Robespierre to R.D. Laing, suggesting the contradictions and ironies to which the ideals of sincerity and authenticity give rise, most especially in contemporary life. Lucid, and brilliantly framed, its view of cultural history will give Sincerity and Authenticity an important place among the works of this distinguished critic

The life and work of Sigmund Freud by Ernest Jones( Book )
50 editions published between 1957 and 2003 in 8 languages and held by 1,677 libraries worldwide
This is not intended to be a popular biography of Freud: several have been written already, containing serious distortions and untruths. Its aims are simply to record the main facts of Freud's life while they are still accessible, and--a more ambitious one--to try to relate his personality and the experiences of his life to the development of his ideas --Preface

The middle of the journey by Lionel Trilling( Book )

" ... Both a psychological and ideological novel, a fascinating chess game where characters, each uniquely human and yet each representative of an intellectual position, move in an intricate pattern around the central figure, John Laskell. After a nearly fatal illness, Laskell finds that he must rediscover himself and his convictions in a world which terrifies him, where old relationships and allegiances are no longer securely defined. During his convalescence in a Connecticut country town, he questions the basic assumptions of his life as they are reflected in his personal loyalties, particularly to the young couple whose false liberalism he once shared uncritically, and in his political stand, which is challenged by a friend who, once having been a Communist, has moved to a position of extreme reaction. He discovers in himself a heightened awareness of the unpredictability of love and the omnipresence of death."--Page 4 of cover

In this now justly famous account of his experience, he describes both the bleak and the comic aspects of trench warfare on the Aragon front, the Barcelona uprising in May 1937, his nearly fatal wounding just two weeks later, and his escape from Barcelona into France after the P.O.U.M. was suppressed."--Publisher's description

Selected letters of John Keats by John Keats( Book )
3 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 605 libraries worldwide
"The letters of John Keats are, T. S. Eliot remarked, "what letters ought to be; the fine things come in unexpectedly, neither introduced nor shown out, but between trifle and trifle." This new edition, which features four rediscovered letters, three of which are being published here for the first time, affords readers the pleasure of the poet's "trifles" as well as the surprise of his most famous ideas emerging unpredictably." "Unlike other editions, this selection includes letters to Keats and among his friends, lending greater perspective to an epistolary portrait of the poet. It also offers a revealing look at his "posthumous existence," the period of Keats's illness in Italy, painstakingly recorded in a series of moving letters by Keat's deathbed companion, Joseph Severn. Other letters by Dr. James Clark, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Richard Woodhouse - omitted from other selections of Keats's letters - offer valuable additional testimony concerning Keats the man."--BOOK JACKET
