The Advance Of English Poetry In The Twentieth Century

Серия: "-"

One might almost take the first stanza as representing the Irish and the second the English temperament. Книга представляет собой репринтное издание 1918 года (издательство "New York, Dodd, Mead and company" ). Несмотря на то, что была проведена серьезная работа по восстановлению первоначального качества издания, на некоторых страницах могут обнаружиться небольшие" огрехи" :помарки, кляксы и т. п.

William Lyon Phelps

William Lyon Phelps (2 January 1865 - 21 August 1943) was an American author, critic and scholar.
