These thirteen essays have been collected to honor Melvyn New, Professor Emeritus, University of Florida, and are prefaced by a description of his scholarly career of more than forty years. Suggesting the wide-­range of that career, the first eight essays offer various critical perspectives on a diverse group of eighteenth-­century authors. Laurence Sterne, the primary focus of Professor New's scholarship, is the focus as well of the final five essays. Joseph G. Kronick takes the battle of the books as a starting point and provides a reading of Eliot in the shadow of Pope that reveals the fate of poetry to be a perpetual struggle with its modernity. E. Derek Taylor discovers an ironic allusion between two of Gainsborough's final paintings that invites the viewer to consider the ways that each painting both complicates and enhances the other, in a fashion similar to the ironic strategy of the final two chapters of Sterne's Sentimental Journey. Robert G. Walker traces the importance . . .

This eclectic collection of verse originates from short “school essays” found on the back of drawings made in 1941. These were later transformed into verse. My daughter became the real inspiration for this collection. In the 1960s she wanted to exchange verse, instead of having me read a bedtime story to her. We went on to do this, off and on, for several years. Most of the verses in this collection were written later on aeroplanes and trains while travelling. They provide a commentary on life, sometimes wistful, sometimes amusing, sometimes irreverent, sometimes critical, sometimes educational, and sometimes imaginative and uncouth. The verses range from observations on the funny side of life to childhood memories, to railing against bureaucracies and man’s ethics and morality, to lauding extraordinary achievements, to fairy stories, and an attempt to explain nature’s major forces to young people! Above all I hope that readers of this wild, chaotic, and mostly lighthearted . . .

Dazzling dramas on American themes from the Nobel laureate

On a cold winter's day on the Dakota plains, Catherine Weldon receives a caller, Kicking Bear, bringing news of Indian rebellion. In the fort nearby, a tiny community splinters apart over how to react. In Ghost Dance, first performed in 1989, Walcott turns a story with a foregone conclusion -- Sitting Bull and his Sioux followers will die at the hands of the Army and Indian agents -- into a portrait of life at a crossroads of American history.

In Walker, an opera first performed in 1992 and revised for its revival in 2001, Walcott shifts his attention east, taking for his subject David Walker, the nineteenth-­century black abolitionist. In Walcott 's hands Walker becomes a classical hero for his people: a leader who is also a poet.
