The Art of Sinking in Poetry by Alexander PopeFrom $12.5
Written in 1727, "The Art of Sinking in Poetry" was one of Alexander Pope's contributions to the literary output of the legendary Scriblerus club - a circle of writers dedicated to mocking what they perceived as a culture of mediocrity and false learning prevalent in the arts and sciences of their day. Taking the form of an ironic guide to writing bad verse, Pope's tongue-in-cheek essay is wickedly funny in its lampooning of various pompous poetasters, as well as being essential reading for any budding writer wishing to avoid sinking to the unintentionally ridiculous, and instead to reach for the sublime."The Art of Sinking in Poetry" sees Pope lambasting a whole generation of justly forgotten authors, and is a significant addition to the canon of English literature.

The War That Killed Achilles by Caroline AlexanderFrom $8.9
What are the real lessons of war? A groundbreaking reading of the Iliad that restores Homer's vision of the tragedy of war, by the bestselling author of The Bounty.Few warriors, in life or literature, have challenged their commanding officer and the rationale of the war they fought as fiercely as did Homer's hero Achilles. Today, the Iliad is celebrated as one of the greatest works in literature, the epic of all epics; many have forgotten that the subject of this ancient poem was war-not merely the poetical romance of the war at Troy, but war, in all its enduring devastation. Using the legend of the Trojan war, the Iliad addresses the central questions defining the war experience of every age: Is a warrior ever justified in standing up against his commander? Must he sacrifice his life for someone else's cause? Giving his life for his country, does a man betray his family? How is a catastrophic war ever allowed to start-and why, if all parties wish it over, can it not be ended? As she did with The Endurance and The Bounty, Caroline Alexander lets us see why a familiar story has had such an impact on us for centuries, revealing what Homer really meant. Written with the authority of a scholar and the vigour of a bestselling narrative historian, The War That Killed Achilles is a superb and utterly timely presentation of one of the timeless stories of our civilization.

New translation by the poet Dick Davis, widely regarded as our finest translator of Persian poetry, in heroic couplets . . . This wonderful work should win Gorgani the Western audience he richly deserves.'<br />- The Times Literary Supplement
