Popular American essayist, novelist, and journalist CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER (1829-1900) was renowned for the warmth and intimacy of his writing, which encompassed travelogue, biography and autobiography, fiction, and more, and influenced entire generations of his fellow writers. Here, the prolific writer turned editor for his final grand work, a splendid survey of global literature, classic and modern, and it's not too much to suggest that if his friend and colleague Mark Twain-who stole Warner's quip about how "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it"-had assembled this set, it would still be hailed today as one of the great achievements of the book world. Highlights from Volume 9 include: . the politcal writings of William Ellery Channing . verse by Thomas Chatterton . excerpts from Geoffrey Chauncer's Canterbury Tales . the letters of Lord Chesterfield . philosophy and maxims from Chinese literature . dialogues and letters from Marcus Tullius Cicero . the speeches of Henry Clay . the writings of Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) . poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge . selections from the works of William Wilkie Collins . and much, much more.
