Elective affinities by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
In Elective Affinities Goethe conducts an experiment with the lives of people who are living badly. Charlotte and Eduard, aristocracts with little to occupy them, invite Ottilie and the Captain into their lives; against morality, good sense, and conscious volition all four are drawn into relationships as inexorably as if they were substances in a chemical equation.

Goethe wrote Elective Affinities when he was sixty a

10 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
David Constantine is one of the finest poets writing in English. His poetry stands outside the current literary climate, and like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, it is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. Its mood is often one of unease, elegiac or comically edged, barbed with pain or tinged with pleasure. His poems hold a worried and restless balance between celebration and anxiety, restraint and longing. His Collected Poems spans three decades, including work from seven previous Bloodaxe titles and two limited editions, as well as a whole collection of new poems. --Bloodaxe Books

In the footsteps of the gods : travellers to Greece and the quest for the Hellenic ideal by David Constantine( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
Gladiators and goddesses, philosophers and poets, epic battles and romantic landscapes - the classical world has for centuries captivated and inspired the west.

In the Footsteps of the Gods traces the ways in which th
