"There is probably nobody living more qualified to write this work and nobody who has explored the available sources and contemplated the social meaning of nineteenth century spiritualism more completely than John Buescher. His contribution in this area is unprecedented and vital." --Mark A. Lause, University of Cincinnati "John Buescher has written a lively, richly-detailed account--and sometimes free-swinging critique--of one of nineteenth-century America's most idiosyncratic and radical religious leaders. By turns warmly sympathetic to Spear and his spiritualist colleagues, then harshly critical of their 'neo-gnostic' tendencies, Buescher both tells a good story and draws many inferences ...

Paradise Lost, 1668-1968

The Commentary, the first full version on Paradise Lost since the Richardsons' in 1734, combines numerous resources with features used for the first time. It includes the best commentary from Annotations like Patrick Hume's (1695), to the variorum editions of Newton (1749) and Todd (1801-42), and the modern professional editions culminating in Alastair Fowler's (1968). Other elements include an essay on the early pre-annotative criticism from 1668, including Marvell, Dryden, Dennis, and others; copious use of the OED; numerous cross-references to Milton's other works and passages in Paradise Lost; fourteen excurses and other contributions by the present editors. This Commentary is itself a research library for Paradise Lost. It uniquely presents biblical, classical, and vernacular citations: the ultimate rather than a more recent source is cited, so dating the comment; every cited passage is quoted, and every question is in English. Only a text of the poem is required.

The Complete Works of Harriet Taylor Mill

For 170 years, Harriet Taylor Mill has been presented as a footnote in John Stuart Mill's life. This volume gives her a separate voice. Readers may assess for themselves the importance and influence of her ideas on "women's" issues such as marriage and divorce, education, domestic violence, and suffrage. And they will note the overlap of her ideas on ethics, religion, arts, and socialism, written in the 1830s, with her more famous husband's works, published 25 years later.

Poems of Friedrich Hölderlin

Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the German by James Mitchell. Readers of these carefully crafted translations by James Mitchell will profit not only by their economy and clarity of expression, but also by the fact that the same translating technique allows Holderlin's imagery and remarkable spiritual imagination to shine forth in English. Friedrich Holderlin was born in Germany in 1770 and studied in Tubingen from 1788 to 1793, where he became friends with fellow students Hegel and Schelling. Thereafter he wrote some of the most fascinating lyric poetry in the history of German literature. Translator James Mitchell has lived and worked for many years in Germany and San Francisco as a writer, book publisher and college teacher. This second edition provides the original texts in German."
