Second Sight from the Author: Catherine Maxwell. This study examines six late Victorian writers--Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Walter Pater, Vernon Lee, Eugene Lee-Hamilton, Theodore Watts-Dunton and Thomas Hardy--to reveal their commitment to a Romantic visionary tradition which surfaces towards the end of the nineteenth century in response to the threat of a growing materialism. Offering readings of both poetry and prose, Second Sight shows the different ways in which late Victorian writers move beyond materiality, though without losing a commitment to it, to explore the mysterious relation between the seen and the unseen.

A Library Of The World S Best Literature Ancient And Modern Vol Xliii Forty Five Volumes Dictionary Of Authors K Z from the Author: Charles Dudley Warner. Popular American essayist, novelist, and journalist CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER (1829-1900) was renowned for the warmth and intimacy of his writing, which encompassed travelogue, biography and autobiography, fiction, and more, and influenced entire generations of his fellow writers. Here, the prolific writer turned editor for his final grand work, a splendid survey of global literature, classic and modern, and it's not too much to suggest that if his friend and colleague Mark Twain-who stole Warner's quip about how "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it"-had assembled this set, it would still be hailed today as one of the great achievements of the book world. Volume 43 is Part Two of a dictionary of authors-from Hans Vilhelm Kaalund to Ulrich Zwingli-that serves as a handy, condensed reference to the authors quoted in the first 40 volumes, as well as a guide to thousands more authors whose works are notable but not featured in this set.

Victorian And Edwardian Responses To The Italian Renaissance from the Author: John E. Law. The historiography of the Italian Renaissance has been much studied, but generally in the context of a few key figures. Much less appreciated is the extent of the enthusiasm for the subject in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when the subject was 'discovered' by travellers and men and women of letters, historians, artists, architects and photographers, and by collectors on both sides of the Atlantic. The essays in Victorian and Edwardian Responses to the Italian Renaissance explore the breadth of the responses stimulated by the encounter between the British, the Americans and the Italians of the Renaissance. The volume approaches the subject from an interdisciplinary perspective. While recognising the abiding importance of the familiar 'great names', it seeks to draw attention to a wider cast of people, many of whom led colourful, energetic lives, knew Italy well, and wrote eloquently about the country and its Renaissance. Several essays show that 'Renaissance studies' became a field in which female historians could explore areas of relevance to the 'New Woman'. Other chapters examine the aims and politics of collecting and the place of the collector in literature and in the rediscovery of Renaissance artists. The contribution of teachers and other less formal champions of the Italian Renaissance is explored, as is the role of photographers who re-framed and re-viewed Florence - the Renaissance city - for Victorian and later eyes.

Dictionary Of Twentieth Century British Philosophers from the Author: Stuart Brown. This is a two-volume work with entries on individuals who made some contribution to philosophy in theperiod 1900 to 1960 or soon after. The entries deal with the whole philosophical work of an individual or, in thecase of philosophers still living, their whole work to date. Typically the individuals included have been born by1935 and by now have made their main contributions. Contributions to the subject typically take the form ofbooks or journal articles, but influential teachers and people otherwise important in the world of philosophymay also be included. The dictionary includes amateurs as well as professional philosophers and, whereappropriate, thinkers whose main discipline was outside philosophy.There are special problems about the term "British" in the twentieth century, partly because of humanmigration, partly because of decolonialization and the changing denotation of the term. The intention has beento include not only those who were British subjects at least for a significant part of their lives (even if theymostly lived outside what is now the U.K.) but also people who spent a significant part of their lives in Britainitself, irrespective of their nationality or country of origin. In the first category are included, for instance, anumber of people who were born and educated in Britain but who subsequently taught in universities abroad.In the second category are included those who were born elsewhere but who came to Britain and contributedto its philosophical culture.
