The Collected Poems of Elizabeth Barrett Browning
WORDSWORTH
The Collected Poems of Elizabeth Barrett Browning


Elizabeth Barrett Browning was such an acclaimed poet in her own lifetime that she was suggested as a candidate for the Poet Laureateship when Wordsworth died in 1850. Yet today we have only a limited knowledge of her considerable life\'s work as a poet, in part because of a lack of representative but accessible editions of her work.

Readers will find here not only her well-known sonnet sequence of love poems, Sonnets From the Portuguese, but also lesser known sonnets, some in praise of the cross-dressing bohemian writer George Sand, others to contemporary poets and artists. Her religious and spiritual poetry echoes that of the Metaphysical poets.

A different voice emerges in her social and political protest poems, such as `The Cry of the Children\' and `The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim\'s.

The classic novel of greed and vice from F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Set in an era of intoxicating excitement and ruinous excess, changing manners and challenged morals, F. Scott Fitzgerald\'s second novel chronicles the lives of Harvard-educated Anthony Patch and his beautiful, willful wife, Gloria.

This bitingly ironic story eerily foretells the fate of the author and his own wife, Zelda-from its giddy romantic beginnings to its alcohol-fueled demise. A portrait of greed, ambition, and squandered talent, The Beautiful and Damned depicts an America embarked on the greatest spree in its history, a world Fitzgerald saw \"with clearer eyes than any of his contemporaries.

Ulysses

Ulysses


Ulysses is a snapshot of one day\'s life. Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and unreadable.

It is funny, sorrowful, and even suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book.

Even the verbal vaudeville of the final chapters can be navigated with relative ease, as long as you\'re willing to be buffeted, tickled, challenged, and (occasionally) vexed by Joyce\'s sheer command of the English language.\nAmong other things, a novel is simply a long story, and the first question about any story is: What happens? \nIn the case of Ulysses, the answer might be Everything.
