Description : Excerpt from Literary Friendships in the Age of Wordsworth: An Anthology Isolatio N, in the arts at least, is by no means as splendid as the popular phrase would have it. In all the great creative epochs there have been groups of men eagerly discussing the problems Of life and art, exploring new ideas and new realms Of technique, and generously sharing their results with one another. Athens, in the fifth century before Christ, and Florence, in the fifteenth century Of our era, could never have achieved their pre-eminence in the history Of Europe without the constant intercourse Of the men who made them great; nor can anyone doubt that Shakespeare, no less than his opponent, profited by those wit-combats betwixt him and Ben Jonson at the Mermaid Tavern. Even Milton, who seems to stand alone more than any other figure in English literature, was in close contact with the greatest men and the greatest deeds Of his age. The truth is that great men are stimulants to one another, and lead on lesser men to achieve ments which would have been impossible for them without these high examples and high incentives. Incomplete and thwarted achievement is the penalty Of isolation. Almost all the poets who are generally spoken Of as the precursors of the Romantic Revival paid the penalty of isolation. Madness claimed Smart, Collins and Cowper; Gray never spoke out; Chatterton. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Dr Harding demonstrates in this study the importance of human relationship in Coleridge's thought and writing. The first three chapters explore Coleridge's idea of relationship as it developed throughout his creative life, and show how Coleridge's own relationships influenced his thinking about morality. One section is devoted to a fresh interpretation of Coleridge's major poetry. The final chapter traces the idea of relationship in Coleridge's social and political philosophy. Dr Harding uses previously unpublished Coleridge manuscripts in support of his analysis, and assesses the nature of Coleridge's originality as a thinker by viewing him in the context of his own time and through comparison with other writers. This evaluation of a major poet and thinker will appeal not only to those whose interests are literary, but also to students of philosophy and politics.

Description : There has been an increasing interest in the meaning and importance of friendship in recent years, particularly in the West. However, the history of friendship, and the ways in which it has changed over time, have rarely been examined. Friendship: A History traces the development of friendship in Europe from the Hellenistic period to today. The book brings together a range of essays that examine the language of friendship and its significance in terms of ethics, social institutions, religious organizations and political alliances. The essays study the works of classical and contemporary authors to explore the role of friendship in Western philosophy. Ranging from renaissance friendships to Christian and secular friendships and from women’s writing to the role of class and sex in friendships, Friendship: A History will be invaluable to students and scholars of social history.

Description : First published in 2003, this book examines the creative partnership of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, and provides a critical analysis of the poems written by this famous couple during the 16 year period of their friendship, courtship and marriage. Even quite early in their relationship, the Brownings shared a frame of reference: similar themes, narrative structures, and details of phrasing resonate in their works and suggest dialogue, rather than merely mutual influence. Pollock traces parallels between the Brownings' lives and works even before they met, and then throughout their courtship and married life, suggesting that their creative dialogue continued after Barrett Browning died in 1861, as her presence and themes continued to inform Browning's poetry for at least a decade afterward.

Description : In this second edition of William Wordsworth: A Life, Stephen Gill draws on knowledge of the poet's creative practices and his reputation and influence in his life-time and beyond. Refusing to treat the poet's later years as of little interest, this biography presents a narrative of the whole of Wordsworth's long life—1770 to 1850—tracing the development from the adventurous youth who alone of the great Romantic poets saw life in revolutionary France to the old man who became Queen Victoria's Poet Laureate. The various phases of Wordsworth's life are explored with a not uncritical sympathy; the narrative brings out the courage he and his wife and family were called upon to show as they crafted the life they wanted to lead. While the emphasis is on Wordsworth the writer, the personal relationships that nourished his creativity are fully treated, as are the historical circumstances that affected the production of his poetry. Wordsworth, it is widely believed, valued poetic spontaneity. He did, but he also took pains over every detail of the process of publication. The foundation of this second edition of the biography remains, as it was of the first, a conviction that Wordsworth's poetry, which has given pleasure and comfort to generations of readers in the past, will continue to do so in the years to come.
