Inventing wonderland : the lives and fantasies of Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, J.M. Barrie, Kenneth Grahame, and A.A. Milne by Jackie Wullschläger( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1865 and 1930, five writers who could not grow up transformed their longing for childhood into a literary revolution. Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, J.M. Barrie, Kenneth Grahame, and A.A. Milne stand at the center of a golden age of Victorian and early twentieth-century children's literature. From the vibrantly imagined stories of Alice in Wonderland to the enchanted, magical worlds of Peter Pan and Winnie-the-Pooh, these five writers made the realms of fantasy they envisioned an enduring part of our everyday culture. We return to these classics again and again, for enjoyment as children and for the consolation and humor they offer adults."--BOOK JACKET. "In Inventing Wonderland, Jackie Wullschlager explores the lives behind the fantasies of these remarkable writers as well as the cultural and social forces which helped shape their visions. As Wullschlager shows, each writer was not only childlike, but also born into a society which made a cult of childhood. In another age, their interests might have made them minor talents, but in Victorian and Edwardian England, they were mainstream writers in touch with the mood of a nation, working with the unconscious force of a whole society behind them."--BOOK JACKET. "In this captivating, richly illustrated multiple biography, Jackie Wullschlager draws on the letters, memoirs, and diaries of these five writers and reveals how their fixations with childhood had much to do with adult fears, self-doubts, and nostalgia in a changing society."--Jacket

Geoffrey Humphries : paintings and drawings from the Venice studio by Geoffrey Humphries( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English artist Geoffrey Humphries (1945- ), is a master of oil painting, portraiture, watercolor and drawing; he paints theatrical fantasies alluding to the depraved allure of Secessionist Vienna and Beckmann's dark take on Weimar Republic cabaret. Matching his bravura sense of colour with a sensual nuance of line, the invention, variety and beauty of his work is eloquent testimony to his love of La Serenissima. A flamboyant figure in Venice for more that fifty years, Humphries' legendary soirees provide a kaleidoscopic background for his paintings. His studio became the epicenter for a cast of remarkable characters from the late 20th century, from rock stars, royalty and writers to eminent Venetians, artists, opera singers, and musicians. This retrospective portfolio celebrates Humphries' fifty years in Venice. Major works, past and present, chronicle his life and oeuvre, and serve as an homage to his adopted city Venice, a fusion of past and present, the city of both yesterday and today
