Description : Alexander Pope was the foremost poet of early eighteenth-century England, but he was also a prolific prose writer. This anthology is intended to make Pope's major prose work more widely available. It includes the critical prefaces to his own work, to Homer, and to Shakespeare; the mock-critical treatises, A Key to the Lock and The Art of Sinking in Poetry which deride the poetry and criticism of Pope's opponents, and raise important questions about the principles of writing and interpretation; maliciously comic pamphlets attacking John Dervis, Stephen Duck, Edmund Curll, and Lord Hervey; and a selection from Pope's wide-ranging correspondence, which illustrates his genius for friendship, and his opinions on literature, politics, and religion. The volume complements the critical and moral concerns of Pope's poetry, documenting the controversies in which he was continuously engaged. Pope emerges as a gifted critic and a complex mixture of integrity and deviousness, a man concerned both for the culture of his day and for his public image.

Description : Excerpt from Selected Prose Works of G. E. Lessing Though there is no writer whose works may be more advantageously studied as a whole than Lessing's, there are few of equal importance who are known in this country in so partial and fragmentary a manner. Various translations of 'Nathan der Weise' and 'Minna von Barnhelm' have, it is true, exhibited him fairly enough as a dramatist of pure style, refined humour, and liberal thought; at the same time another class of readers has had more than one opportunity of studying the treatise on the 'Laokoon,' and admiring his vigorous and suggestive style of criticism and wide scholarship, which must always give it a literary interest whatever substantial value may be assigned to it. But such an acquaintance with isolated pieces hardly allows a reader to estimate their real value, and still less does it afford him an opportunity of co-ordinating the positions of Lessing the dramatist and Lessing the critic, and forming any definite notion of his true place in literary history. To do so demands in any case some general knowledge of German literature, but whilst Goethe and Schiller have become duly appreciated in this country, their great precursor has, amongst general readers, been little more than a name to those who were even so far acquainted with him.

Description : Literary Nonfiction. BLOOD WORK collects the best nonfiction prose works of celebrated poet and translator Ron Padgett. The sixteen pieces here range from the whimsical to the elegiac. Padgett considers the joys and problems of words, in translation and in his own writing, he trains his eyes on artists, including Man Ray, R.B. Kitaj, and George Schneeman, and on writers, from the Cubist Poets (who didn't exist) and Pierre Reverdy, to poets who have shared his adventures. His encounters with strangers in foreign countries are as vivid as portraits of friends close to home. From his inability to distinguish between the words for pineapple and grapefruit, to a diary of his thoughts as his father lies dying half a world away, Padgett offers us lessons in things, and in lives.
