[13314] Blumberg, Jane. Byron and Shelley. London: Collins and Brown, 1992. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover. As New / As New. ISBN: 1-85585-110-5. 1816 was "the year without a summer", when a volcanic eruption blotted out the sun, and it was also the season when a momentous friendship was forged. Byron, Shelley, Mary Shelley (who wrote "Frankenstein" in that year) and Claire Clairmont (Mary's step-sister, pregnant with Byron's child) were neighbours across the shores of Lake Geneva. Byron had just fled from England following the scandal surrounding his separation from his wife and rumours of incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. This book charts the friendship between the flamboyant Byron and the youthful Shelley's and their friends and hangers-on, through Italy and England, through personal tragedies and passions, sex and scandal, wit and heartbreak - all accompanied by a prodigious and precocious outpouring of brilliant poetry which echoed the creative relationship between Byron and the Shelley's, and their shared view of the world, its follies and its hypocrisies.  £15.00

ISBN: 1-85585-110-5. 1816 was "the year without a summer", when a volcanic eruption blotted out the sun, and it was also the season when a momentous friendship was forged. Byron, Shelley, Mary Shelley (who wrote "Frankenstein" in that year) and Claire Clairmont (Mary's step-sister, pregnant with Byron's child) were neighbours across the shores of Lake Geneva. Byron had just fled from England following the scandal surrounding his separation from his wife and rumours of incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. This book charts the friendship between the flamboyant Byron and the youthful Shelley's and their friends and hangers-on, through Italy and England, through personal tragedies and passions, sex and scandal, wit and heartbreak - all accompanied by a prodigious and precocious outpouring of brilliant poetry which echoed the creative relationship between Byron and the Shelley's, and their shared view of the world, its follies and its hypocrisies.  £15.00

[12685] Spenser, Edmund. Faerie Queene (Book 1). Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Reprint. Paperback. Very Good ISBN: 0-19-911011-5. The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature Epic poem that was published between 1590 and 1609 by Edmund Spenser. It is the central poem of the Elizabethan period and is one of the great long poems in the English language. A celebration of Protestant nationalism, it represents infidels and papists as villains, King Arthur as the hero, and married chastity as its central value. The form of The Faerie Queene fuses the medieval allegory with the Italian romantic epic. The plan was for 12 books (of which six were completed), focusing on 12 virtues exemplified in the quests of 12 knights from the court of Gloriana, the Faerie Queene, a symbol for Elizabeth I herself. Arthur, in quest of Gloriana's love, would appear in each book and come to exemplify Magnificence, the complete man. Spenser took the decorative chivalry of the Elizabethan court festivals and reworked it through a constantly shifting veil of allegory, so that the knight's adventures and loves build into a complex, multileveled portrayal of the moral life. The verse, a spacious and slow-moving nine-lined stanza and Spenser's archaic language frequently rise to an unrivalled sensuousness.  £4.00
