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. Volume 41 contains more songs and hymns, including works by: . Emma Lazarus . Longfellow . Cecil Francis Alexander . George Alfred Townsend . Thomas Moore . William Butler Yeats . Thomas Nash . Helen Thayer Hutcheson . Arthur Cleveland Coxe . Abdallah Nihauni . Ellen Burroughs . and many others . and much, much more.
