William Blake by Kathleen Raine( Book )

142 editions published between 1915 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 2,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prophet, poet, painter and engraver -- Blake's uniqueness lies in no single achievement, but in the whole of what he was, which is more than the sum of all that he did. So writes Kathleen Raine in this classic study of William Blake, a man for whom the arts were not an end in themselves, but expressed his vision of the spiritual drama of the English national being. Profusely illustrated, this volume presents a comprehensive view of Blake's artistic achievements and a compelling and moving portrait of the life and thought of an extraordinary genius."--Publisher description

Thomas Taylor, the Platonist : selected writings by Thomas Taylor( Book )

23 editions published between 1969 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume makes available to the modern reader selected writings of Thomas Taylor, the eighteenth-century English Platonist. TO Taylor we are indebted for the first full translation into English of Plato and Aristotle. Platonism, as Taylor saw it, was an informing principle, transmitted through a "golden chain of philosophers," a doctrine received by Socrates and Plato from the Orphic and Pythagorean past and transmitted to the future. It emerged again and again, enriched in the School of Alexandria, in Renaissance art, in the works of Spenser, Shelley, Yeats. Kathleen Raine is well known as a poet.

The inner journey of the poet, and other papers by Kathleen Raine( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 1982 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poet Kathleen Raine explores the idea that "journey" has been the theme of most imaginative poetry of the ages. Quoting from ancient mythology to Wordsworth, she charts the journeys into regions of consciousness that poet's have taken. Examples such as Dante's Divine Comedy are studied in detail. The author compares poetry to Jungian pscychology which also deals with inner journeys. (SLNSW Infocus item 2212)
Blake and antiquity by Kathleen Raine( Book )

32 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blake was a visionary like no other. To some, like William Wordsworth, the only explanation for the remarkable spiritual world Blake witnessed and brought to life in his books was 'insane genius'. Such a view persisted well into the twentieth century. But could madness really be the only explanation for Blake's creations? Blake and Antiquity is the pivotal work that challenged such a view and changed forever our understanding of William Blake's genius. Through meticulous researches into his visual and literary sources, Kathleen Raine restores Blake to the esoteric spiritual tradition with which he was so familiar. As this fully illustrated work makes clear, it is only by appreciating his place within that tradition that any true appreciation of Blake's art and poetry can take place. For many this book will be a revelation; for lovers of Blake it is indispensable."--Jacket

The collected poems of Kathleen Raine by Kathleen Raine( Book )

35 editions published between 1956 and 2019 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In compiling her 'Collected Poems', Kathleen Raine was uniquely placed to look back on more than six decades of her poetry and to decide the canon by which she wished to be judged and remembered. From its first appearance her poetry has been recognised as possessing a rare imaginative integrity, remaining faithful to a formal purity of voice, as well as to an imagery whose resonances are at once her own voice yet speak as if from the heart of the human condition itself

Lost illusions by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written between 1837 and 1843, Lost Illusions reveals, perhaps better than any other of Balzac's ninety-two novels, the nature and scope of his genius. The story of Lucien Chardon, a young poet from Angouleme who tries desperately to make a name for himself in Paris, is a brilliantly realistic and boldly satirical portrait of provincial manners and aristocratic life. Handsome and ambitious but naive, Lucien is patronized by the beau monde as represented by Madame de Bargeton and her cousin, the formidable Marquise d'Espard, only to be duped by them. Denied the social rank he thought would be his, Lucien discards his poetic aspirations and turns to hack journalism; his descent into Parisian low life ultimately leads to his own death

6 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The action concerns the Polish King's incarceration of his son, Sigismund, who the omens say will prove a tyrant. In a controlled experiment, Sigismund becomes prince for a day, justifies the prophecies and is shunted back into his tower; only after he persuades himself that all that has passed is a dream, the young prince re-emerges to take over the kingdom and learn to rule wisely. Intertwined with this is the story of a Muscovite woman, Rosaura, who comes to Poland to avenge herself on her father and her lover, and who likewise learns the power of magnanimity and kindness {u2026} a masterpiece about time, fate, love, honor, death and the illusory nature of existence
