Popular American essayist, novelist, and journalist CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER (1829-1900) was renowned for the warmth and intimacy of his writing, which encompassed travelogue, biography and autobiography, fiction, and more, and influenced entire generations of his fellow writers. Here, the prolific writer turned editor for his final grand work, a splendid survey of global literature, classic and modern, and it's not too much to suggest that if his friend and colleague Mark Twain-who stole Warner's quip about how "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it"-had assembled this set, it would still be hailed today as one of the great achievements of the book world. Highlights from Volume 27 include: . the expeditionary journals of Fridtjof Nansen . excerpts from the Old and New Testaments . the writings of John Henry Cardinal Newman . the work of Sir Isaac Newton . excerpts from the Nibelungenlied . the writings of Margaret Oliphant Wilson Oliphant . Ossian and Ossianic poetry . and much, much more.

This book presents important psychological matters occupying Ibsen's life including his observations that were transformed into poems and plays. Attention is given to Ibsen's insight into psychological issues pre-dating the ideas as presented in the psychoanalytic writings of Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler. Freud and Adler acknowledged Ibsen's psychological insight, but Ibsen's insight into human nature is still not fully recognized. This book addresses that neglect. Ibsen utilized his own life experiences together with a careful observation of human behavior to present what later became immensely important to the yet undeveloped field of psychoanalysis. Special attention is given to Ibsen's simple but important understanding of therapeutic change and decision-making.
