Delphi Complete Works of Edward Young (Illustrated) by Edward Young Summary

The eighteenth century English poet, dramatist and philosopher, Edward Young is best remembered today for the enormously popular ‘Night-Thoughts’, a long, didactic poem contemplating the theme of death. The poem was inspired by the successive deaths of Young’s stepdaughter, her husband and the poet’s own wife over a five year period. Composed in blank-verse, it is a dramatic monologue of nearly 10,000 lines, divided into nine parts, or “Nights.” Young’s fame in Europe was further developed by his prose masterpiece, ‘Conjectures on Original Composition’, addressed to his friend, the novelist Samuel Richardson. The essay succinctly explores concepts that would later epitomise the principal concerns of the Romantic movement. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. For the first time in digital publishing, this volume presents Young’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Young’s life and works * Concise introduction to Young’s life and poetry * The text of the complete poems is based on the seminal Bell and Daldy 1858 edition * Includes the original footnotes, ideal for students * Excellent formatting of the texts * Special chronological and alphabetical contents tables for the poetry * Easily locate the poems you want to read * Includes Young’s complete plays — first time in digital print * Young’s sermons and essays, available in no other collection * Features two biographies — discover Young’s literary life * Scholarly ordering of texts into chronological order and literary genres Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to see our wide range of poet titles CONTENTS: The Life and Poetry of Edward Young Brief Introduction: Edward Young Complete Poetical Works of Edward Young The Poems List of Poems in Chronological Order List of Poems in Alphabetical Order The Plays Busiris, King of Egypt (1719) The Revenge (1721) The Brothers (1753) The Prose On Lyrick Poetry (1728) A Vindication of Providence (1728) An Apology for Princes (1729) The Centaur Not Fabulous (1755) An Argument, Drawn from the Circumstances of Christ’s Death, for the Truth of His Religion (1758) Conjectures on Original Composition (1759) Epitaph at Welwyn, Hertfordshire The Biographies Edward Young by Leslie Stephen On the Life and Poetic Genius of Edward Young by George Gilfillan Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of poetry titles or buy the entire Delphi Poets Series as a Super Set

Delphi Complete Works of Raymond Chandler (Illustrated) by Raymond Chandler Summary

The American author of detective fiction, Raymond Chandler created the private detective Philip Marlowe, characterised as a poor, yet honest upholder of ideals in an opportunistic and brutal world. In total, Chandler completed seven novels, all featuring Philip Marlowe as their hero, many of which were adapted for the silver screen as film noir classics. As a founder of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, Chandler was lionised by critics and leading writers, including W. H. Auden, Evelyn Waugh and Ian Fleming, who admired his literary prose and pithy dialogue. Chandler's innovative approach helped redefine the private eye fiction genre, winning him the designation of the most lyrical of the major crime writers.

Delphi Complete Works of Gustave Flaubert (Illustrated) by Gustave Flaubert Summary

Noted for his scrupulous devotion to style and aesthetics, Gustave Flaubert was a highly influential figure of nineteenth century literature, widely considered the leading exponent of French literary realism.

Delphi Complete Works of Parthenius (Illustrated) by Parthenius of Nicaea Summary

The tutor of the epic poet Virgil, Parthenius of Nicaea was a Greek grammarian and poet that flourished in the first century AD. Regarded as the last of the Alexandrians, Parthenius was a writer of elegies and short epic poems. His sole surviving work, ‘Love Romances’, is a collection of thirty-six epitomes of mythological love stories, all of which have tragic or sentimental endings. The tales are valuable in providing information on Alexandrian poets and grammarians whose works are now lost. The ‘Love Romances’ would play an important part in the development of the love story – especially the tragic love story – in the course of Western literature. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts.

Aratus of Soli was a third century BC didactic poet at the court of Antigonus Gonatas of Macedonia, where he wrote his famous astronomical poem ‘Phaenomena’ (Appearances). It describes the constellations and other celestial phenomena, while the latter section is chiefly concerned with weather lore. Aratus’ poem was extremely popular both in the Greek and Roman world, as demonstrated by the large number of commentaries and Latin translations. He enjoyed immense prestige among Hellenistic poets, including Theocritus, Callimachus and Leonidas of Tarentum. This assessment was passed on to the Latin writers, notably influencing Ovid, Virgil and Cicero. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts.

Delphi Complete Works of Alphonse Daudet (Illustrated) by Alphonse Daudet Summary

A master of French Naturalism, the nineteenth century novelist Alphonse Daudet is chiefly remembered today as the author of sentimental tales of provincial life in the south of France. Unlike his fellow Naturalists, Daudet upheld that the world in its diversity was misrepresented by novelists that concentrated only on its bleaker aspects. He is celebrated for his objective interest in external detail, as well as his compassionate personality and his reverence for the mystery of all things and individuals. Daudet tempers his satire with pity, drawing comparisons in style to the works of Dickens and Maupassant. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Daudet’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and bonus material.

Delphi Complete Works of Thomas Wolfe (Illustrated) by Thomas Wolfe Summary

The early 20th century American novelist Thomas Wolfe produced highly original, poetic, rhapsodic and impressionistic prose, framed in the guise of autobiographical writing. His novels vividly reflect on 1930’s American culture and the mores of that period, filtered through a sensitive and hyper-analytical perspective. His first novel, ‘Look Homeward, Angel’, is now widely regarded as an American classic, characterised for its intense consciousness of scene and place, combined with an extraordinary lyric power. Wolfe imbues his life story with a lofty romantic quality, employing epic overtones. After Wolfe's untimely death at the age of thirty-seven, William Faulkner described him as “the greatest talent of his generation”. This eBook presents Wolfe’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Wolfe’s life and works * Concise introductions to the major texts * All the published novels, with individual contents tables * Features rare stories and poems * Special chronological and alphabetical contents tables for the stories * The complete plays, with rare dramas appearing here for the first time, including both versions of ‘The Mountains’ * Images of how the books were first published, giving your eReader a taste of the original texts * Excellent formatting of the texts * Includes Wolfe’s memoirs and essays * Ordering of texts into chronological order and genres Please note: a few posthumous works published many years after Wolfe’s death cannot appear due to copyright restrictions.

The English Jacobean and Caroline playwright, Philip Massinger was celebrated for his comedic genius, finely plotted plays, social realism and incisive satire. Following the death of Shakespeare in 1616 and Fletcher in 1625, Massinger became the leading playwright of the King's Men's. His most popular and influential play, ‘A New Way to Pay Old Debts’ expresses a timeless indignation at economic oppression and social disorder, while ‘The City Madam’ deals with similar evils, combining naturalistic and symbolic modes.
