5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Emily Dickinson's poetry, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dickinson (Paperback)
Dickinson is very enigmatic, especially when you're new to her, and Vendler's informed and fascinating commentary gives you an excellent reading of the poems and a sound base on which to build your own critical appreciation.

For new and essential biographical details, I also recommend you to read the astonishing, "Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and Her Family's Feuds" by Lyndall Gordon.

Even though I'd seen the TV version, the story was gripping. I'll have to seek out some more Scandinavian fiction!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not a fan of the "question" style of the book, but I know many people like this. The explanations are good, and there seems a good balance of text and detail. It's OK for me (rating about 1900-2000).

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine book by John Watson, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best repertoire books I've seen. The author's explanations are clear. I wonder about his choice of line against the Slav, but since I've always disliked playing against that opening I can hardly quibble. The index is very comprehensive.


No Title Available

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE!, 8 Jan. 2012
As the manufacturer states, these boots do not have fully leather uppers. After three light wears mine were through to the textile underneath. They look good: so one star; but I would not recommend them even at this low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Present, 17 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed the advice of the previous reviewers as I needed a present for a friend. I was not disappointed. This is a super book. It is useful because it has all kinds of designs, not just huge displays which not everyone wants to make. There are simple methods to follow so designs can be tried out easily at home. I like the history of flower designs too which is presented interestingly with some historical photos. There are also large glossy pictures for just browsing. This book is an ideal present. I have never been very tempted to try out flower arranging myself but this flower design encyclopaedia is a real inspiration and has given even me some ideas.


Venetian Painting: A Concise History (World of Art)

5.0 out of 5 stars Venice and much more, 2 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am no artist. Yet, I'm fascinated about art. I've often wandered around galleries (Uffizi, Prado, National, Louvre), seen religious pictures, portraits, which are obviously very beautiful, but not really known how to understand the differences between them, or put into words their impact. The "language" of art's been rather a mystery. For ages I've been searching for a book to explain in terms I can relate to.... At last, Eureka!: here is a book which describes in intelligible English,(I'm afraid it does help that Mr. Steer is English. American English becomes more and more a different language to us, not surprisingly), and with great sensitivity, the effects paintings have on us, and then shows how these effects are actually created. Different styles are analysed clearly and put into their historical context.
Although Venetian art is the specific topic of this book, I feel I have learnt from it so much more about Art in general, I will look at paintings with greater confidence and knowledge.
Like all good teachers, Mr. Steer has shown me how to set about understanding the subject for myself.
