Описание: In this restructured and greatly expanded version of Burton Raffel's out-of-print classic, "Poems from the Old English", Raffel and co-editor Alexandra H. Olsen
place the oldest English writings in a different perspective. Keeping the classroom teacher's needs foremost in mind, Raffel and Olsen organize the major old English poems (except
"Beowulf") and new prose selections so as to facilitate both reading and studying.
A general introduction provides an up-to-date and detailed historical account of the
Anglo-Saxon period, and concise introductions open the literature sections of the book and many of the translations. Raf
el's translations of Old English poetry reproduce much of the flavour as well as the sense of the originals. With more than 1800 translated lines and many revised older translations, the
poems in this volume are organized into four genres - elegies, heroic poems, religious poems and wisdom poetry.
Raffel's translations include more than 20 poem-riddles, with
proposed solutions in a separate section. Prose translations - grouped in historical, testamentary and legal, religious, social and instructional, and medical and magical categories -
feature writings by King Alfred, Aelfric and Wulfstan, among others.

Описание: Paperweight collectors are usually familiar with the histories and products of the French manufacturers Clichy, Baccarat, and Saint Louis, but many know little about English makers from early times to the present day. This book, dedicated solely to the English paperweight makers and containing paperweight examples from the early nineteenth century to 1980, will fill that gap. Gathered together for the first time in one book are the worlds largest collections of Bacchus paperweights, as well as many previously unknown and never before photographed paperweights from English glasshouses, all rivaling the best from the French makers. By comparing canes, colors, and styles with one of the hundreds of examples shown in this book, collectors should now be able to identify their own previously unknown weights, and the fake "1848" dated paperweights and inkwells can now be attributed to the right factories and time periods. With over 400 beautiful color photographs, detailed, fascinating descriptions of the weights, and a value guide, this book is a must for paperweight enthusiasts and collectors everywhere.
Описание: "Modern Love" and "Poems of the English Roadside" occupies a distinctive and somewhat notorious place within George Meredith`s already unique body of work.
