Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: This title comes with an introduction and notes by Professor Stephen Arkin, San Francisco State University. Katherine Mansfield is widely regarded as a writer who helped create the modern short story. Born in Wellinton, New Zealand in 1888, she came to London in 1903 to attend Queen's College and returned permanently in 1908. Her first book of stories, "In a German Pension", appeared in 1911, and she went on to write and publish an extraordinary body of work. This edition of "The Collected Stories" brings together all of the stories that Mansfield had written up until her death in January of 1923. With an introduction and head-notes, this volume allows the reader to become familiar with the complete range of Mansfield's work from the early, satirical stories set in Bavaria, through the luminous recollections of her childhood in New Zealand, and through the mature, deeply felt stories of her last years. Admired by Virginia Woolf in her lifetime and by many writers since her death, Katherine Mansfield is one of the great literary artists of the twentieth century.

Автор: Tennyson, Alfred Lord Название: Collected Poems Tennyson) ISBN: 1853264148 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781853264146 Издательство: Британия elt Рейтинг: Цена: 297.00 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: Although Tennyson (1809-1892) has often been characterized as an austere, bearded patriarch and laureate of the Victorian age, his poems speak clearly to the imagination of the late 20th century. His mastery of rhyme, metre, imagery and mood communicate their dark, sensuous and sometimes morbid messages. Much given to melancholy and feelings of aching desolation, Tennyson's verse also carries clear messages of hope: 'Ring out the old, ring in the new', and 'Tis better to have loved and lost/Than never to have loved at all'.
Автор: Yeats, W.B. Название: Collected Poems (Yeats) ISBN: 1853264547 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781853264542 Издательство: Британия elt Рейтинг: Цена: 297.00 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: W. B. Yeats was Romantic and Modernist, mystical dreamer and leader of the Irish Literary Revival, Nobel prizewinner, dramatist and, above all, poet. He began writing with the intention of putting his ‘very self’ into his poems. T. S. Eliot, one of many who proclaimed the Irishman’s greatness, described him as ‘one of those few whose history is the history of their own time, who are part of the consciousness of an age which cannot be understood without them’.For anyone interested in the literature of the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, Yeats’s work is essential. This volume gathers the full range of his published poetry, from the hauntingly beautiful early lyrics (by which he is still fondly remembered) to the magnificent later poems which put beyond question his status as major poet of modern times. Paradoxical, proud and passionate, Yeats speaks today as eloquently as ever.
Автор: Wilde, O. Название: Collected Poems (Wilde) ISBN: 1853264539 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781853264535 Издательство: Британия elt Рейтинг: Цена: 297.00 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: Wilde, glamorous and notorious, more famous as a playwright or prisoner than as a poet, invites readers of his verse to meet an unknown and intimate figure. The poetry of his formative years includes the haunting elegy to his young sister and the grieving lyric at the death of his father. The religious drama of his romance with Rome is captured here, as well as its resolution in his renewed love of ancient Greece. He explores forbidden sexual desires, pays homage to the great theatre stars and poets of his day, observes cityscapes with impressionist intensity. His final masterpiece, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, tells the painful story of his own prison experience and calls for universal compassion. This edition of Wilde's verse presents the full range of his achievement as a poet.

Описание: Robert Burns, the most celebrated of all Scottish poets, is remembered with great devotion - his birthday on 25th January provokes fervour and festivity among Scots and many others the world over. Born in 1759 into miserable rustic poverty, by the age of eighteen Burns had acquired a good knowledge of both classical and English literature. In June 1786 his first collection of verse, "Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect", which included "To a Mouse" and "The Cotter's Saturday Night", was greeted with huge acclaim by all classes of society. His later poems and ballads include Auld Lang Syne, the beautiful song "My Love is like a Red Red Rose", "Highland Mary", "Scots Wha Hae" and his masterpiece, "Tam o'Shanter".
Автор: Kipling, R. Название: Collected Poems (Kipling) ISBN: 1853264059 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781853264054 Издательство: Британия elt Рейтинг: Цена: 297.00 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка. Описание: This edition of the poetry of Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) includes all the poems contained in the Definitive Edition of 1940. In his lifetime, Kipling was widely regarded as the unofficial Poet Laureate, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. His poetry is striking for its many rhythms and popular forms of speech, and Kipling was equally at home with dramatic monologues and extended ballads. He is often thought of as glorifying war, militarism, and the British Empire, but an attentive reading of the poems does not confirm that view. This edition reprints George Orwell's hard-hitting account of Kipling's poems, first published in 1942, and generally regarded as one of the most important contributions to critical discussion of Kipling.
