Leaves of Grass (World's Classics)

Leaves of Grass (World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whitman is today regarded as America's Homer or Dante, and his work the touchstone for literary originality in the New World. In Leaves of Grass, he abandoned the rules of traditional poetry - breaking the standard metered line, discarding the obligatory rhyming scheme, and using the vernacular. Emily Dickinson condemned his sexual and physiological allusions as `disgraceful', but Emerson saw the book as the `most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed'. A century later it is his judgment of this autobiographical vision of the vigor of the American nation that has proved the more enduring.

Synopsis:

It is not only the allusions to sex and physiology that disturbed Whitman's critics but also his departure from the rules of conventional poetry. He broke down the standard metred line, discard the obligatory rhyming scheme, and freely expressed himself in the living vernacular of American speech.

Synopsis:

This book examines the law relating to State Aid in the European Union, a subject of growing commercial and political importance. The text analyzes the control of state subsidies by the European Union, examining the acceptability of aid to various industries, such as the airline and automobile

industry. It also considers the acceptability of aid granted to research and development, small and medium-sized enterprises, environmental protection, and so on.
