  • The City of Dreadful Nightby James Thomson

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    This long poem written by Scottish author James Thomson is a notable literary accomplishment on several levels. It offers a no-holds-barred account of the seedy underbelly of London's nightlife in the late nineteenth century that stands in sharp contrast to the more popular vision that was advanced in many other Victorian-era novels and poems.... more...

  • The Life of Charlotte Bronteby Elizabeth Gaskell

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    Nineteenth-century novelist Elizabeth Gaskell was inspired to start writing in part through her friendship with Charlotte Bronte. Later, Gaskell took on the project of composing the first serious, full-length biography of Bronte, a work that scholars agree did much to fan the flames of Bronte's then-burgeoning reputation. The Life of Charlotte... more...

  • The Dawn and the Dayby Henry T. Niles

    The Floating Press 2012; US$ 3.99

    Religious poetry is a genre that has been around for thousands of years, but in the multi-part epic The Dawn and the Day, lawyer and writer Henry T. Niles adopted a novel approach, attempting to forge a theological and philosophical bridge between two seemingly incompatible belief systems, Christianity and Buddhism. Stirring and thought-provoking,... more...

    The Floating Press 2012; US$ 3.99

    William Wordsworth is regarded as one of the most significant figures in the Western literary canon -- but his sister, Dorothy, was a skilled poet and diarist in her own right, as well, though she never sought the public acclaim that enveloped her brother's career. This fascinating biography probes the life and work of Dorothy Wordsworth, as well... more...

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    This book explores how British Romantic poetry--the writing, reading, and critical reception of it--reinforced British nationalism in the 19th century, ripening the political processes of nationhood that began with the first Act of Union in 1707. Using archival research on literary collections, criticism and reviews, this study documents the rise of... more...

  • The Letters of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browningby Robert Browning; Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    The Floating Press 1900; US$ 5.95

    When Robert Browning first met the ailing Elizabeth Barrett in 1845 it must have seemed to him like something from a gothic novel. All but a prisoner to her strict, disciplinarian father, (who had forbidden all twelve of his children from marrying and disinherited any who disobeyed him), Elizabeth had recently published a book of poems that had made... more...
