Most widely held works by George Whalley
Aristotle's Poetics by Aristotle( file )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 1,289 libraries worldwide
Aristotle's Poetics combines a complete translation of the Poetics with a running commentary, printed on facing pages, that keeps the reader in continuous contact with the linguistic and critical subtleties of the original while highlighting crucial issues for students of literature and literary theory. Whalley's unconventional interpretation emphasizes Aristotle's treatment of art as dynamic process rather than finished product. The volume includes two essays by Whalley in which he outlines his method and purpose. He identifies a deep congruence between Aristotle's understanding of mimesis and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's view of imagination

Poetic process by George Whalley( Book )

"What is poetry?" Starting with this timeless question, George Whalley covers the entire process of the creation and achieved effects of poetry. The profound process that terminates in a sgnificant work of poetry emerges as an act of self-discovery, self-realization, and self-fulfillment. As the author writes, his object is "to see poetry and the poet in their full stature, in their full complexity, in the perspective of value and eternity; to see the poem as timelessly valuable, and the poet as a person who ... is transfigured by his art."--Meridien Press
