Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America (America: a Cultural History)
David Hackett Fischer

Oxford University Press, 1989

This fascinating book is the first volume in a projected cultural history of the United States, from the earliest English settlements to our own time. It is a history of American folkways as they have changed through time, and it argues a thesis about the importance for the United States of having been British in its cultural origins. While most people in the United States today have no British ancestors, they have assimilated regional ...

The Souls of Black Folk (Dover Thrift Editions)
W. E. B. Du Bois, William Edward Burghardt Du Bois

Dover Publications, 1994

This landmark book is a founding work in the literature of black protest. W. E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963) played a key role in developing the strategy and program that dominated early 20th-century black protest in America.

Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2014

The translation of Beowulf by J.R.R. Tolkien was an early work, very distinctive in its mode, completed in 1926: he returned to it later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered its publication. This edition is twofold, for there exists an illuminating commentary on the text of the poem by the translator himself, in the written form of a series of lectures given at Oxford in the 1930s; and from these lectures a substantial ...
