Thomas Hardy,Robert Mezey: Selected Poems of Thomas Hardy

Selected Poems of Thomas Hardy


Although best remembered today for his novels, Thomas Hardy thought of himself as a poet forced by circumstance to write fiction for a living. This generous selection of nearly two hundred poems includes such familiar pieces as "During Wind and Rain, " "Channel Firing, " "Afterwards, " "The Darkling Thrush, " and "The Oxen, " but it will also acquaint readers with many less-celebrated works, among them "To Lizbie Browne, " "After the Last Breath, " "My Spirit Will Not Haunt the Mound, " "The Haunter, " "Old Furniture, " "A Procession of Dead Days, " "The Harbour Bridge, " "At a Country Fair, " "Last Love-Word, " "Waiting Both, " and "Proud Songsters." With an introduction and annotations by Robert Mezey, this new Penguin Classics edition will help readers to recognize Hardy as one of the greatest English poets of this century.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre. The Ninth Legion marched into the mists of northern Britain-and they were never seen again. Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost. It's a mystery that's never been solved, until now ...So begins the story of The Eagle of the Ninth, set against a backdrop of Roman Britain and featuring a young soldier, Marcus Aquila, who sets off into the unknown north to find out what happened to the lost legion. Following on from this are The Silver Branch Selected Poems of Thomas Hardy pdf in which two young soldiers uncover a plot to overthrow the Emperor, and The Lantern Bearers which is set at a time when the Romans are leaving the shores of Britain and tells of Aquila who, having served in the Roman army, is now returning home to his farm-but when he gets there everything he knows and loves has been destroyed and so he sets out to seek revenge. To have three such exciting stories in one volume is a treat for fans old and new.
