When it was first published, Lyrical Ballads enraged the critics of the day: Wordsworth and Coleridge had given poetry a voice, one decidedly different to that which had been voiced before. This acclaimed Routledge Classics edition offers the reader the opportunity to study the poems in their original contexts as they appeared to Coleridge’s and Wordsworth’s contemporaries, and includes some of their most famous poems, including Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancyent Marinere.

Lyrical Ballads by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge is a unique work of literature. first published in 1798, it marked a radical change in the direction of English Literature. Lyrical Ballads represented a movement away from the overwrought, highly formal and learned verse of the 18th century and in so doing ushered in a new, more democratic poetic era. Written in the language of the common man and addressing the concerns of the common man, Lyrical Ballads was the first - and remains the most - truly revolutionary collection of poetry, paving the way for the great Romantic poets - keats, Byron, Shelley et al. - and proving that, while there was no actual revolution on the ground, England could still be the most revolutionary of places. Lyrical Ballads was not a single phenomenon but a sequence of four editions spread over seven years; its appearance in English literature was not a historical moment but a sequence of moments - 1798, 1800, 1802, 1805. This edition - based on the 1805 edition, but looking back on each of the previous publications - shows how this collection developed, how it was refined and added to by the authors. No other edition on the market has such a wealth of key background information.

Best known as author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), if not also as mother of Frankenstein's author Mary Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft survived domestic violence and unusual independent womanhood to write engaging letters, fiction, history, critical reviews, handbooks and treatises. Her work on coeducational thought was a major early modern influence upon the development of a post-Enlightenment tradition, and continues to have vital relevance today. Celebrated as an early modern feminist, abolitionist and socialist philosopher, Wollstonecraft had little formal schooling, but still worked as a governess, school-teacher and educational writer. This succinct critical account of that prolific research begins by recounting her revolutionary self-education. Susan Laird explains how Wollstonecraft came to criticize moral flaws in both men's and women's private education based on irrational assumptions about 'sexual character' under the Divine Right of Kings. It was to remedy those moral flaws of monarchist education that Wollstonecraft theorized her influential, but incomplete, concept of publicly financed, universal, egalitarian coeducation.

Drei Gentlemen bitten zum Raub - doch einer will allein kassieren. Der smarteste Coup von Großbritanniens größtem Krimiautor Der smarte Enddreißiger Mike Mackenzie langweilt sich. Als Software-Designer hat er ein Vermögen gemacht, das so enorm ist, dass keines seiner kostspieligen Hobbys auch nur im Geringsten ins Gewicht fällt. Nun ist er auf der Suche nach neuen Zerstreuungen und findet sie in der Welt der Kunst. Doch wenn man sich fast jedes Werk problemlos leisten kann, verliert das Sammeln rasch seinen Reiz – es sei denn, man wechselt die Seiten ... Und so wird eines whiskyseligen Abends eine Idee geboren, die endlich wieder für Nervenkitzel in Mikes Leben sorgt: In einem einzigartigen Coup soll die schottische National Gallery um einige ihrer wertvollsten Gemälde erleichtert werden. Mit von der Partie sind Allan Cruikshank, ein frustrierter Bankangestellter, der endlich einmal etwas Verrücktes tun möchte, und Robert Gissing, ein desillusionierter Kunstprofessor kurz vor der Pensionierung. Der Plan der drei Gentleman-Gauner geht tatsächlich auf – und doch geht alles schief. Denn einer der Herren hat ganz eigene Pläne ... Ein Thriller, der aus dem Rahmen fällt: Smart wie »Ocean’s Eleven« – und zugleich ein Rankin reinsten Wassers!
