Tennyson's poetry epitomizes the Victorian age, for which he became a spokesman. His finest poems are often steeped in a sensuous melancholy, as in Maud, or are chivaric, heroic and allegorical, as in The Lady of Shalot and Morte d'Arthur.

'Tennyson', wrote T. S. Eliot, 'has the finest ear of any English poet since Milton,' and his verse remains unrivalled in its combination of verbal richness, emotional depth and intellectual engagement. Tennyson drew on classical and medieval legends in poems like 'The Lotos-Eaters' (1832) and 'The Lady of Shalott' (1832) to explore the spiritual tensions of the nineteenth century. In one of the great works of his maturity, 'In Memoriam' (1850) - written after the loss of his dearest friend - Tennyson vividly negotiated contemporary scepticism and the modern sciences of geology and evolution. Similar ground is covered in a dramatically darker mood in 'Maud' (1855), a poignant account of psychological disintegration.

Keats is one of the major figures in the second generation of Romantic Poets and was considered by Tennyson to be the greatest poet of the nineteenth century. The preoccupying themes of Keats' poetry are love, art, sorrow, the natural world and thenature of the imagination. However, his poetry is often also indirectly critical of conventional political, religious, and sexual beliefs. This collection contains pieces from different periods in his short life, from his earliest verse to his later unpublished poems. It also includes his best-loved works, such as The Eve of St Agnes, Lamia, and the Odes, and extracts from Endymion.

Der ganze Kosmos Gabriel García Márquez‘ im Spiegel seiner erfrischend unakademischen Reden Er hatte sich geschworen, nie eine Rede zu halten, aber dann steht er doch sein Leben lang auf den Podien der Welt. Gabriel García Márquez, einer der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts und Literaturnobelpreisträger, weiß, was für eine Macht das Wort, sein Wort, haben kann. Die von ihm selbst eigens für dieses Buch zusammengestellten Reden sind wunderschöne, bewegende Beispiele dafür und unvergleichlich.Literatur, Journalismus, Film und Politik, nicht zu vergessen die Freundschaften, sind die großen Themen im öffentlichen Leben von Gabriel García Márquez. Und darum geht es in diesen Reden – von der ersten, die er 1944 bei seinem Schulabschluss hielt, über die Nobelpreisrede 1982 bis zu jener anrührenden Ansprache 2007 in Cartagena de Indias bei der Vierzigjahr-Feier von »Hundert Jahre Einsamkeit«. Die Texte, die ein Leben umspannen, zeigen Gabriel García Márquez in vielen Facetten: den politisch engagierten Bürger seines Landes, den Literaturliebhaber, den erfolgreichen Autor und Nobelpreisträger, den Filmfan, der eine Akademie gründet, den couragierten Journalisten. Sie sind lebendig, anekdotenreich und packend. Man wünscht sich beim Lesen, die Stimme von Gabriel García Márquez zu hören.

Von John Ruskin stammen die ersten Schreckensvisionen einer total industrialisierten Welt. Wolfgang Kemp zeichnet in seiner sorgfältig recherchierten Biographie das Leben dieses englischen Schriftstellers und Kunstphilosophen nach, der sich in einer Zeit einschneidender gesellschaftlicher Veränderungen von der reinen Betrachtung der Kunst und Natur abwandte und zu einem der schärfsten Kritiker des viktorianischen England wurde. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

Daniel Karlin has selected poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria, (1837-1901). Giving pride of place to Tennyson, Robert Browning, and Christina Rossetti, the volume offers generous selections from other major poets such asArnold, Emily Bronte, Hardy and Hopkins, and makes room for several poem-sequences in their entirety. It is wonderful, too, in its discovery and inclusion of eccentric, dissenting, un-Victorian voices, poets who squarely refuse to 'represent' their period. It also includes the work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Meredith, James Thomson and Augusta Webster.

Selected Poems of Mick Imlah

Mick Imlah's second and long-awaited collection The Lost Leader was published to acclaim in 2008, shortly before his early death in January 2009. The present retrospect connects the work of three decades, drawing upon Imlah's earlier full-length collection, Birthmarks (1988), but also including uncollected poems and previously unpublished work. The Lost Leader won the Forward Prize and revealed a poet of dazzling virtuosity, eloquence and subtlety - breaking through, as Imlah said of Edwin Muir (whose poems he selected in his last year) 'to a field of unforced imaginative fluency and an unexpected common cause'. Edited by Mark Ford and with an essay by Alan Hollinghurst, the Selected Poems brings together the best work of a poet who can now be seen, with increasing clarity, as a 'lost leader' of Scottish poetry in our time.
