A.E. Housman: The Scholar

David Butterfield

A.E. Housman: The Scholar

A.E. Housman (1859-1936) was a man of many apparent contradictions, most of which remain unresolved 150 years after his birth. At once a deeply emotive lyric poet and a precise and dedicated classical scholar, he achieved fame in both of these diverse disciplines. Although his poetic legacy has received much scholarly analysis, and yet more attention has been devoted to reconstructing his private life, no previous work has focused on Housman the classical scholar; yet it is upon scholarship that Housman most wished to leave his mark. This timely collection of papers by leading scholars reassesses the extent of Housman's contribution to classical scholarship (in both his published and unpublished writings) and shows how his mantle has been passed on to later generations of classicists.

Abigail Adams

The New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice. American Heritage, Best of 2009. In this vivid new biography of Abigail Adams, the most illustrious woman of the founding era, Bancroft Award–winning historian Woody Holton offers a sweeping reinterpretation of Adams's life story and of women's roles in the creation of the republic. Using previously overlooked documents from numerous archives, Abigail Adams shows that the wife of the second president of the United States was far more charismatic and influential than historians have realized. One of the finest writers of her age, Adams passionately campaigned for women's education, denounced sex discrimination, and matched wits not only with her brilliant husband, John, but with Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. When male Patriots ignored her famous appeal to "Remember the Ladies," she accomplished her own personal declaration of independence: Defying centuries of legislation that assigned married women's property to their...

Abigail Adams (Women of Achievment)

Abigail Adams was one half of America's first husband-and-wife political team. Abigail, and her husband, John, the second president of the United States, were both major players in the birth of the United States. In addition to her role as first lady, Abigail, a spirited, outspoken, and witty woman, was also a mother, family caregiver, entrepreneur, and farm manager. Passionate about her ideals, she endured years of separation from her husband and sons so American democracy could be secured. Although life in the early republic was challenging, this vivacious first lady met challenges with verve and an abiding faith. "Abigail Adams: First Lady" presents an inspiring biography that details the triumphs and tragedies of her life.

About My Life and the Kept Woman: A Memoir

Gore Vidal has hailed John Rechy as “one of the few original American writers of the last century,” and Michael Cunningham has called him an author “whose life is almost as interesting, and meaningful, as his work.” Rechy’s long-awaited memoir,About My Life and the Kept Woman, is the author’s first open treatment of his life—and a testament to the power of pride and self-acceptance. Raised Mexican-American in El Paso, Texas, at a time when Latino children were routinely segregated, Rechy was often assumed to be Anglo because of his light skin, and had his name “changed” for him by a teacher, from Juan to John. As he grew older—and as his fascination with the memory of a notorious kept woman in his childhood deepened—Rechy became aware that his differences lay not just in his heritage, but in his sexuality. A moving, powerful story of a life that bears witness to some of the most riotous changes of the past century,About My Life and the Kept Woman is as much a portrait of intolerance...

Lord Charnwood

Abraham Lincoln

One of the most important works on Abraham Lincoln from the era when he was passing out of living memory and into history, this 1917 classic is a rich, evocative portrait of the man and how actions as a leader were shaped by his character and ideals. From its British perspective, offering a fresh angle on an American legend, to its charming readability, Charnwood's treatise-which was called, in 1947, "the best one-volume life of Lincoln ever written" by historian Benjamin Thomas-today remains one of the most intriguing examinations of the great president, and a keystone for understanding the evolution of Lincoln scholarship. British author and academic GODFREY RATHBONE BENSON, 1st Baron Charnwood (1864-1945) also wrote the biography *Theodore Roosevelt* (1923).

Abraham Lincoln and Men of War-Times: Some Personal Recollections of War and Politics During the Lincoln Administration

Lincoln in 1860. I T was the unexpected that happened in Chicago on that fateful 18th of l1ay, 1860, when Abraham Lincoln was nominated for President of the United States. It was who11y nnexpected by the friends of Seward; it was hoped for, but not confidently expected, by the friends of Lincoln. The convention was the ablest asscmbly of the kind ever called together in this country. It was the first national deliberative body of the Republican party that "vas to attaiu such illustrious achievements ill the history of free governmellt. The first llational cOllvention of that party, held in Philadelphia in 1856, was composed of a loose aggregation of political free-thinkers, embracing mally 11s11ally denominated as cranks." The party was without organization or cohesion; its delegates were self-appointed and responsible to no regular constituency. It was the sudden eruption of the intense resentment of the people of the North against the encroachments of Slav.

Abraham Lincoln in the Post-Heroic Era: History and Memory in Late Twentieth-Century America

Abraham Lincoln in the Post-Heroic Era: History and Memory in Late Twentieth-Century America

By the 1920s, Abraham Lincoln had transcended the lingering controversies of the Civil War to become a secular saint, honored in North and South alike for his steadfast leadership in crisis. Throughout the Great Depression and World War II, Lincoln was invoked countless times as a reminder of America’s strength and wisdom, a commanding ideal against which weary citizens could see their own hardships in perspective. But as Barry Schwartz reveals in Abraham Lincoln in the Post-Heroic Era, those years represent the apogee of Lincoln’s prestige. The decades following World War II brought radical changes to American culture, changes that led to the diminishing of all heroes—Lincoln not least among them. As Schwartz explains, growing sympathy for the plight of racial minorities, disenchantment with the American state, the lessening of patriotism in the wake of the Vietnam War, and an intensifying celebration of diversity, all contributed to a culture in which neither Lincoln...

Abraham Lincoln, A True Life (Classic Reprint)

THE Fourth of July in America is a time of national rejoicing. It is also a time of national remembrance. On that day we are reminded, in one way or another, that we are Americans, and that we have a country to which we should be loyal and true. We are reminded, also, that this is the land of freedom and that it was made so by the toils and sufferings of brave and wise men who lived and died amid scenes and circumstances to which we are strangers. It is fitting that we should think of all these things on the Fourth of July, for that day is the birthday of our nation.There was once a time, however, when the people living in America could not boast that they had a country of their own ; for they were ruled by the king and parliament of Great Britain who made laws for their government without asking their consent. The American colonists, as the people were then called, could not say that this was a land of freedom ; for they were made to pay taxes to the king, and were denied many of...

Abraham Lincoln: Selected Speeches and Writings (Library of America Paperback Classics)

?Alone among American Presidents, it is possible to imagine Lincoln, grown up in a different milieu, becoming a distinguished writer of a not merely political kind.?--Edmund WilsonRanging from finely honed legal argument to wry and some sometimes savage humor to private correspondence and political rhetoric of unsurpassed grandeur, the writings collected in this volume are at once a literary testament of the greatest writer ever to occupy the White House and a documentary history of America in Abraham Lincoln?s time. They record Lincoln?s campaigns for public office; the evolution of his stand against slavery; his electrifying debates with Stephen Douglas; his conduct of the Civil War; and the great public utterances of his presidency, including the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address.
