Genre: Poetry

Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson (1809-1892) was Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom and is one of the most popular English poets. Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes. One of Tennyson's most famous works is Idylls of the King (1859), a series of narrative poems based entirely on King Arthur and the Arthurian tales. During his career, Lord Tennyson attempted drama, but his plays enjoyed little success even in his lifetime. His first publication entitled Poems by Two Brothers was published in 1827. He published his first solo collection of poems, Poems Chiefly Lyrical in 1830. In 1833, Tennyson published his second book of poetry, which included his well-known poem, The Lady of Shalott. In 1842 Tennyson published two volumes of Poems. The Princess, a satire of women's education, which came out in 1847, was also popular. It was in 1850 that Tennyson reached the pinnacle of his career, being appointed Poet Laureate until his death. Amongst his other works are Becket and Other Plays (1884) and Lady Clare (1884).

Genre: Fiction

Laurence Housman (1865-1959) was an English playwright. He was born in Worcestershire. After education at local schools, he went to study art at the Lambert School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. He first worked as a book illustrator with London publishers, illustrating such works as Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market (1893) and Jane Barlow's The End of Elfintown (1894) in an intricate Art Nouveau style. But he also wrote and published several volumes of poetry in the 1890s, and when his eyesight began to fail, he turned more and more to writing. Housman's first success came with the novel An Englishwoman's Love-letters (1900), published anonymously. He then turned to drama with Bethlehem (1902) and was to become best known and remembered as a playwright. His other dramatic works include Angels and Ministers (1921), Little Plays of St. Francis (1922) and Victoria Regina (1934) which was even staged on Broadway. Amongst his other works are The Field of Clover (1898), The Blue Moon (1904) and King John of Jingalo (1912).

Genre: Fiction

This carefully edited collection has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Edward Frederic Benson (1867–1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson. He started his novel writing career in 1893 with the fashionably controversial Dodo, which was an instant success, and followed it with a variety of satire and romantic and supernatural melodrama. He repeated the success of Dodo, with sequels to this novel, but the greatest success came relatively late in his career with The Mapp and Lucia series consisting of six novels and two short stories. The novels feature humorous incidents in the lives of (mainly) upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige and one-upmanship in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery. Benson was also known as a writer of atmospheric, oblique, and at times humorous or satirical ghost stories.

Release Date: 2017-08-07
Genre: Fiction

This carefully edited collection has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. David Blaize Trilogy is a series of novels by English author Edward Frederic Benson about the life of a young boy from his early childhood to college years. The first novel in the series is named David Blaize. Set in England before the First World War, the novel describes David's years at prep school and public school, his studies, sports and friendships, and finally, his brush with death when he stops a runaway horse. A second novel, David Blaize and the Blue Door, set in David's early childhood, was published in 1918. In contrast to the first book, it is a children's fantasy influenced by the work of Lewis Carroll, in the style of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, set in a dream landscape permeated with nonsense. David Blaize of King's is Benson's 1924 sequel to David Blaize. It follows David's university career at King's College, Cambridge. Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson.

The Elder Eddas and the Younger Eddas

Genre: Fiction

I found information on a Saemund Sigfusson while reading family documents. I then learned that Odinist Masons in France had seen him as instrumental in the building of the first Gothic cathedral in Chartres. When it comes to the Eddas, what was Saemund Sigfusson's role? Who knows for sure? Be that as it may be, the texts stand by themselves because they are a cultural landmark. Moreover, is it not interesting to see what the views of some specialists were in 1906? So, because there are readers who prefer a hard copy, here is the English translation again, a hundred years after its first publication, but this time with a new feature: an extensive index which should be useful to about anyone.
