He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole.[note 1] Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English,[2] though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). While some of his works have a strain of romanticism, his works are viewed as modernist literature.

BBC Two - Writing Scotland - Robert Burns Walter de la Mare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Life[edit] De la Mare was born in Kent at 83 Maryon Road, Charlton[4] (now part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich), partly descended from a family of French Huguenots, and was educated at St Paul's Cathedral School. He was born to James Edward de la Mare, a principal at the Bank of England, and Lucy Sophia Browning (James' second wife), daughter of Scottish naval surgeon and author Dr Colin Arrott Browning. The suggestion that Lucy was related to poet Robert Browning has been found to be incorrect. In 1892 de la Mare joined the Esperanza Amateur Dramatics Club where he met and fell in love with Elfrida Ingpen, the leading lady, who was ten years older than he. De la Mare's first book, Songs of Childhood, was published under the name Walter Ramal. De la Mare suffered from a coronary thrombosis in 1947 and died of another in 1956. The imagination[edit] De la Mare described two distinct "types" of imagination – although "aspects" might be a better term: the childlike and the boylike.

Robert Burns - Biography Maxwell Perkins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia William Maxwell Evarts ("Max") Perkins (September 20, 1884 – June 17, 1947), was the editor for Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe. He has been described as the most famous literary editor.[1] Life and career[edit] After working as a reporter for The New York Times, Perkins joined the venerable publishing house of Charles Scribner's Sons in 1910. Its publication as This Side of Paradise (1920) marked the arrival of a new literary generation that would always be associated with Perkins. It was through Fitzgerald that Perkins met Ernest Hemingway, publishing his first major novel, The Sun Also Rises, in 1926. The greatest professional challenge Perkins ever faced was posed by Thomas Wolfe, whose talent was matched only by his lack of artistic self-discipline. Perkins was noted for his courtesy and thoughtfulness. Perkins died on June 17, 1947 in Stamford, Connecticut. Further reading[edit] Biography, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius (1978), written by A.

Robert Burns Tribute - Burns Supper, Haggis, Poems and more Born in Alloway, Ayrshire, in 1759 to William Burness, a poor tenant farmer, and Agnes Broun, Robert Burns was the eldest of seven. He spent his youth working his father's farm, but in spite of his poverty he was extremely well read - at the insistence of his father, who employed a tutor for Robert and younger brother Gilbert. At 15 Robert was the principal worker on the farm and this prompted him to start writing in an attempt to find "some kind of counterpoise for his circumstances." It was at this tender age that Burns penned his first verse, "My Handsome Nell", which was an ode to the other subjects that dominated his life, namely scotch and women. When his father died in 1784, Robert and his brother became partners in the farm. However, at the point of abandoning farming, his first collection "Poems- Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect - Kilmarnock Edition" (a set of poems essentially based on a broken love affair), was published and received much critical acclaim.
