Originally published in 1949, Gilbert Highet's seminal The Classical Tradition is a herculean feat of comparative literature and a landmark publication in the history of classical reception.
As Highet states in the opening lines of his Preface, this book outlines "the chief ways in which Greek and Latin influence has moulded the literatures of western Europe and America. " With that simple statement, Highet takes his reader on a sweeping exploration of the history of western literature. To summarize what he covers is a near-impossible task. Discussions of Ovid and French literature of the Middle Ages and Chaucer's engagement with Virgil and Cicero lead, swiftly, into arguments of Christian versus "pagan " works in the Renaissance, Baroque imitations of Seneca, and the (re)birth of satire. Building momentum through Byron, Tennyson, and the rise of "art of art's sake, " Highet, at last, arrives at his conclusion: the birth and establishment of modernism.
Though his humanist style may appear out-of-date in today's postmodernist world, there is a value to ensuring this influential work reaches a new generation, and Highet's light touch and persuasive, engaging voice guarantee the book's usefulness for a contemporary audience. Indeed, the book is free of the jargon-filled style of literary criticism that plagues much of current scholarship. Accompanied by a new foreword by renown critic Harold Bloom, this reissue will enable new readers to appreciate the enormous legacy of classical literature in the canonical works of medieval, Renaissance, and modern Europe and America.

The Psalms of DavidJames S. FreemantleForeword by Stephen FreemantleBack in print,The Psalms of David is a unique, beautifully illustrated edition of the revered religious work, also known as the Book of Psalms.The lifework of a little known genius, this facsimile edition of a magnificent hand-painted illumination of the Psalms of David is a stunning tribute to love and spiritual devotion.Born in India, James Freemantle traveled through the Middle East during his years in the British Army. Shortly after his second marriage, he began this hand-lettered, illustrated volume for his beloved bride, Clara. For the next thirty years, he periodically worked to transfer the psalms into a book that would physically match the lyrical beauty of the poetry.
Throughout the book one finds the brilliantly colored blooms of India: the jacaranda, the flame-of-the-forest, huge yellow laburnums, brilliant poinsettias, and highly scented mimosa. The pages are alive with kingfishers and larks, drummers and hoppie butterflies, storks and pheasants. There are pictures of the lake near Freemantle's home, the nearby Brahmin temple, and the view from the train as he went up to school in the hills. Scenes from his travels in the army, Middle Eastern harbors and villages, and copies of illustrations from Victorian travel books reveal his draftsman's training in the accuracy of every detail.A labor of love, a work of art, a volume to treasure, this illuminated edition of the King James version of the Psalms of David is the perfect gift for all seasons.
Kings Bay-saken snudde opp ned på norsk etterkrigshistorie: Gruveulykken på Svalbard i 1962, hvor 21 mennesker døde, førte til to regjeringsskifter, markerte slutten på AP-staten og Gerhardsens epoke, og innledet mediealderen i norsk politikk. Nå fortelles for første gang den fulle og hele historien om dette dramatiske oppgjøret, med flere nye og oppsiktsvekkende opplysninger. Samtidig skildres en virkelighet Norge glemte: For et lite gruvesamfunn i nord handlet ikke ulykken om den politiske maktkampen. De mistet 21 av sine nærmeste - men også hele det livet de møysommelig hadde bygget opp sammen på Svalbard. For dem ble tilværelsen aldri igjen den samme.
