Summary

The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope (Vol. 1&2) showcases the genius of Pope in his mastery of the heroic couplet, sharpened wit, and satirical prowess. Pope's works often explore contemporary social and political issues with a keen eye for satire and moral lessons. His poems are highly structured and formal, reflecting the neoclassical style of the 18th century, yet with a modern twist that continues to captivate readers today. Vol. 1&2 present a comprehensive collection of Pope's most famous works, including 'The Rape of the Lock' and 'An Essay on Criticism', providing a window into the literary genius of the era. Alexander Pope, a prominent figure in 18th-century English literature, overcame personal health challenges to become one of the most celebrated poets of his time. His keen intellect and sharp observations of society informed his writing, earning him a place among the literary greats of the Enlightenment period. Pope's works continue to be studied and admired for their timeless relevance and literary merit. I highly recommend The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope to readers interested in exploring the intersection of poetry, satire, and social commentary. Pope's enduring relevance and literary craftsmanship make this collection a valuable addition to any library, providing insight into the neoclassical tradition and the power of poetic rhetoric.

    “Nothing less than a riveting snapshot of life in the ‘modern world,’ particularly New York.” —Booklist   Mark Jacobson has published pieces in Rolling Stone, the Village Voice, Esquire, and more. His journalistic beats range far and wide, delving into the realms of politics, sports, and celebrities in pieces on such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Julius Erving, Chuck Berry, Pam Grier (in her Scream Blacula Scream days), Martin Scorsese, and many others. But for Jacobson, New York City has always been topic number one.   Jacobson tells the story of the city in these classic essays covering three decades—from the beginnings of punk rock back in the times of “pre-gentrification” to the heart-wrenching days of 9/11.   “A brilliant collection by one of our most valuable journalists.” —Pete Hamill   Includes a foreword by Richard Price

    From a British Royal Navy officer, a detailed history of World War I’s principal battles at sea. With the call to action stations in August 1914, the Royal Navy faced its greatest test since the time of Nelson . . .

Geoffrey Bennett brings these sea battles dramatically to life, and confirms the Allied navies’ vital contribution to victory.Praise for Naval Battles of the First World War“Strongly recommended.” —RUSI Journal“Excellent balanced accounts and judgements.” —Richard Hough, historian and author“Extensive photographs, include key aspects such as the German battle cruiser Blucher at the Dogger Bank battle, the destruction of the British battle cruiser Queen Mary, as well as the German dreadnaught Bayern sinking after being scuttled at Scapa Flow. A fascinating diagram shows Battleship Turrets, which provides insight into the process of action, such as the shell room, cordage charge, magazine, to the cordite hoist and gun.” —Jon Sandison, historian
