New Holland 236422 Australia 2003 1843301385 / 9781843301387 Softcover Very Good Condition Making the most of a yard or garden does not necessarily mean being a green-fingered enthusiast and people are increasingly seeing their garden as an outdoor room - personalizing the garden has never been more popular. Wood, water and stone are basic elements that should be present in any garden. Wood is readily available, easy to work with and inexpensive, while stone has been used for centuries for its durability, strength and versatility. Water is crucial to life and its introduction into a garden will add balance and calm, as well as a sense of fun. Step-by-Step Garden DIY presents 48 functional yet attractive projects, from trellises and planters, to paths, rockeries, fountains and waterfalls. Each has step-by-step photographs and instructions and the finished piece is photographed in its garden setting. Clear construction diagrams and concise text accompany every project, and there are inspirational spreads featuring stunning garden structures to provide even more ideas for the DIY enthusiast. With expert advice on staining and varnishing wood for the outdoors to ensure that it lasts, this is both an attractive and accessible practical DIY book. 383 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Chaucer - Canterbury Tales, A.C. Cawley [Editor]
3 A.C. Cawley [Editor] Chaucer - Canterbury Tales
Dent 237063 London 1984 Reprint 0460113070 / 9780460113076 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Inspired by Boccaccio's "Decameron", and framed as a storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims, Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" is one of the greatest works of English literature, translated from the Middle English with an introduction by Nevill Coghill in "Penguin Classics". In "The Canterbury Tales" Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories and low farce. A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight's account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath's Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. Rich and diverse, "The Canterbury Tales" offers us an unrivalled glimpse into the life and mind of Medieval England. Nevill Coghill's masterly and vivid English verse translation is rendered with consummate skill to retain all the vigour and poetry of Chaucer's fourteenth-century Middle English. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1343-1400) was an English author, poet, philosopher, courtier and diplomat, best known as the author of "The Canterbury Tales". Chaucer is credited as being the first author to demonstrate the artistic legitimacy of the vernacular English language. The first poet to have been buried in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, his other works include "The House of Fame", "Troilus and Criseyde" and "The Book of the Duchess". If you enjoyed "The Canterbury Tales", you might like Boccaccio's "Decameron" 612 pages. Pages browned. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Literature; Literature & Literary; ISBN: 0460113070. ISBN/EAN: 9780460113076. Inventory No: 237063. Paperback

Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians, Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction]
4 Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction] Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians
Penguin Classics 240239 London, England. 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket The first of the great Greek Tragedians, Aeschylus wrote a large number of plays, of which seven survive. Of the four included in this volume, The Persians is unique in Greek tragedy in having as its subject matter a recent historical event, the defeat of the Persians at the famous battle of Salamis. The other three, Prometheus, The Suppliants and Seven Against Thebes, were all written as parts of trilogies and take their themes from Greek legend, but in each Aeschylus' interpretation reflects the new morality of classical Athens. Thus, in Seven Against Thebes the fate of the two main figures, Eteocles and Polyneices, is not entirely controlled by the gods, for Eteocles is free to choose whether or not he should fight his brother. And in Prometheus and The Suppliants Aeschylus shows that although the struggle of reason against violence can never be an easy one, it is reason that is the proper principle of civilized life. 160 pages. Age tanning to pages. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Plays; Theatre & Plays; Inventory No: 240239. Paperback

Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry, Andrew Motion
6 Andrew Motion Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry
Faber and Faber 245787 Great Britain 2002 0571215653 / 9780571215652 Softcover Very Good Condition Since becoming Poet Laureate in 1999, Andrew Motion has been tireless in his efforts to raise the profile of poetry. In this anthology, he has brought together a wide range of poems, exemplifying his belief that, if we let it, poetry has a unique power to enrich our lives as it diversifies them. The poems are arranged in a series of ten concentric rings: "Self", "Home", "Town", "Work", "Land", "Love", "Travel", "War", "Belief" and "Space". Each section is distinct but seeks out resemblances and echoes elsewhere, creating the impression of an endlessly expanding universe. From Wallace Stevens to Stevie Smith, Joseph Brodsky, to Jo Shapcott, Bob Dylan to Dylan Thomas, Ben Jonson to Benjamin Zephaniah, this anthology should provide the perfect introduction for new readers and offer surprising connections and revelations to those who are already well-versed. 402 pages.

Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts, Bernard Shaw
19 Bernard Shaw Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts
Penguin Classics 226959 Great Britain 2003 Reprint 0141439505 / 9780141439501 Softcover Very Good Condition Definitive text under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence. Introduction by Nicholas Grene. George Bernard Shaw's witty comedy of manners, Pygmalion includes an introduction by Nicholas Grene in Penguin Classics. Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own. Adapted into the Oscar-winning musical film My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison in 1964, Pygmalion This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventially romantic ending. 122 pages.
