A Library of the World's Best Literature - Ancient and Modern - Vol.XXXIII (Forty-Five Volumes); Schiller-Shakespeare
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 33 include: . the poetry of Johann Christoph Friedrich Schiller . the writings of Arthur Schopenhauer . the biographies of Carl Schurz . excerpts from Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe, The Lady of the Lake, and others . the philosophy of Seneca . the letters of Madame de Svign . excerpts from the plays of William Shakespeare . and much, much more.
