Автор: Coleridge, Samuel Taylor Название: Selected Poetry ISBN: 0199555826 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199555826 Издательство: Oxford Academ Цена: 494 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was one of the most versatile minds in European intellectual history, and a shaping influence in the development of
English poetry. As a radical young poet in the years following the French Revolution, Coleridge collaborated with Wordsworth in "Lyrical Ballads" (1798) and was by turns dramatist,
political journalist, lecturer and religious thinker. This edition includes his two most famous poems, "Kubla Khan" and "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", as well as such blank-verse
'conversation' poems as "The Eolian Harp", "This Lime Tree Bower My Prison" and "Frost at Midnight".
Not least of the attractions of Heather Jackson's selection is the
earlier version of the "Rime" which she presents in full, along with the later, better-known version. Demonstrating the diversity characteristic of Coleridge's work, from early
politically-inspired sonnets, to an epitaph he composed for himself shortly before his death, this substantial collection is supplemented by an introduction and notes.

Автор: Aquinas Название: Selected Philosophical Writings ISBN: 0199540276 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199540273 Издательство: Oxford Academ Цена: 653 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (3 шт.) Описание: St Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) saw religion as part of the natural human propensity to worship. His ability to recognize the naturalness of this phenomenon and simultaneously to go beyond it, to explore spiritual revelation, makes his work fresh and highly readable today. While drawing on a strong distinction between theology and philosophy, Aquinas interleaved them intricately in his writings, which range from an examination of the structures of thought to the concept of God as the end of all things. This accessible new translation chooses substantial passages not only from the indispensable Summa Theologicae, but from many other works, fully illustrating the breadth and progression of Aquinas`s philosophy.

Описание: Since their first publication in the 1830s and 1840s, Edgar Allan Poe`s extraordinary Gothic tales have established themselves as classics of horror fiction and have also created many of the conventions which still dominate the genre of detective fiction. As well as being highly enjoyable, Poe`s tales are works of very real intellectual exploration. Attentive to the historical and political dimensions of these very American tales, this new selection places the most popular - `The Fall of the House of Usher`, `The Masque of the Red Death`, `The Murders in the Rue Morgue; and `The Purloined Letter` - alongside less well-known travel narratives, metaphysical essays and political satires.

Автор: Hazlitt, William Название: Selected Writings ISBN: 0199552525 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199552528 Издательство: Oxford Academ Цена: 653 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (3 шт.) Описание: William Hazlitt (1778-1830) developed a variety of identities as a writer: essayist, philosopher, critic of literature, drama, and painting, biographer, political commentator, and polemicist. What unites this variety is his dramatic and passionate intelligence, his unswerving commitment to individual and political liberty, and his courageous opposition to established political and cultural power. Hailed in 1819 as `one of the ablest and most eloquent critics of our nation', Hazlitt was also reviled for his political radicalism by the conservative press of the period. His writing engages with many of the important cultural and political debates of a revolutionary period, and retains its power both to provoke and move the reader.
