A Lover’s Complaint and the Passionate Pilgrim

"A Lover's Complaint" is a narrative poem published as an appendix to the original edition of Shakespeare's sonnets. It is given the title "A Lover's Complaint" in the book, which was published by Thomas Thorpe in 1609. Although published as Shakespeare's work, the poem's authorship has become a matter of critical debate. The majority opinion is that it is by Shakespeare, though of inferior quality to his other works. The Passionate Pilgrim (1599) is an anthology of 20 poems collected and published by William Jaggard that were attributed to "W. Shakespeare" on the title page, only five of which are considered authentically Shakespearean. These are two sonnets, later to be published in the 1609 collection of Shakespeare's sonnets, and three poems extracted from the play Love's Labour's Lost. Internal and external evidence contradicts the title-page attribution to Shakespeare. Five were attributed to other poets during his lifetime, two were published in other collections anonymously, and critics agree that the remaining eight cannot be attributed to Shakespeare on stylistic grounds. Jaggard later published an augmented edition with poems he knew to be by Thomas Heywood.

A Spring Harvest (Annotated)

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time"A Spring Harvest" has been pulled from the pages of history and reformated in a pleasing, easy-to-read font with each poem individually highlighted so that readers can enjoy the works of Smith as Tolkien enjoyed them. . . . . "A Spring Harvest" is a delightful and insightful collection of poems by Geoffrey Bache Smith, a talented poet and very close high school and college friend of J.R.R. Tolkien. Smith's work shows he enjoyed writing and playing with different poetic forms and his mood varied from serious to whimsical.Smith and Tolkien, along with classmates Rob Gilson and Christopher Wiseman, formed a semi-secret society where they discussed their artistic interests and the impact each would have on the world. The society regularly met and took tea at the Tea Club and Barrovian Society, near their school. The men named their society T.C.B.S. . . . . . The personal bonds they formed through T.C.B.S. lasted their lifetimes. Unfortunately, World War I interrupted college and cut short the lives of Smith and Gilson, both killed in France at the Battle of the Somme. Gilson was shot leading a charge and Smith died of shrapnel wounds a few days later on December 3, 1916. Tolkien had contracted Trench Fever and was evacuated to England days before the battle started, escaping almost certain death. Tolkien was impressed by Smith's poems and felt the poetry would be a great help to English society as it recovered from the Great War. He took it upon himself to honor Smith by publishing "A Spring Harvest."

Aldous Huxley’s Early Writings Including

Crome Yellow, is Huxley's first novel, published in 1921. It is a British manor satire where almost nothing happens - even less than normal for this genre. The characters are immaculately presented and manage to express immense profundity in tiny conversations. The writing is wonderful and each turn of phrase is a gem. Huxley's genius shines through the book. It is hilarious, wry and erudite. The Burning Wheel is Huxley's first collection of Poetry, published in 1916 before any of his novels. He was not allowed to fight in the Great War due to his very poor eyesight and so it is unsurprising that many of the thirty poems in this collection deal with light, sight and war. These poems show the Young Huxley at his most optimistic, even sentimental, although this is tempered by a second voice, that of an ironic modern commentator. The Defeat of Youth and Other Poems is Huxley's second book, published in 1918. There are thirty five poems and it starts with a poem that a contemporary called "the century's most successful sonnet sequence, better than Auden's or Edna St. Vincent Millay's." Mortal Coils is a collection of five short stories published in 1922, all of which are highly amusing and brilliantly written by the young Huxley.
