A Library of the World's Best Literature - Ancient and Modern - Vol.XXVI (Forty-Five Volumes); Moli Re-Myths
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 26 include: . the writings of Moli re. the letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. the political philosophy of Montesquieu. the poetry of Thomas Moore. the work of William Morris. the nature writings of John Muir. the myths and folklore of the Ayran peoples. and much, much more.
