The value of The Book of Jasher is seen in the large quantity of additional detail revealed from the period between divine creation and the time of Joshua´s leadership over Israel when the Israelites enter into the land of Canaan. The Book of Jasher includes details about the antediluvian patriarchs, angels, watchers, the flood, the tower of Babel, and many other events mentioned in the Bible. The tales are expanded and infused with detail not previously available. This means we receive insight into the lives of Abraham, Noah, Enoch, Joseph, and many other biblical figures. We come to understand how they became great and why they acted as they did. We are also given hitherto unknown knowledge of historical events. We are shown how God´s hand shaped history through his love and anger. We see how his disappointment with men and angels ended in Earth´s near total destruction. 1. Language: English.

The Book of Modern British Verse, edited by William Stanley Braithwaite (1878-1962). This anthology, first published in 1919, is very much a record of its time. Many of the poems deal with the cataclysmic trauma of World War One and the emergence of a new world order after the fading of the Edwardian era. Among the authors of the 151 poems can be found the names of Rupert Brooke and Ivor Gurney, best known as war poets. As well as poets like Edward Thomas, whose stars have somewhat faded, there are also contributors who are still celebrated today, but largely for literary pursuits other than poetry, ranging from James Joyce to the mystic philosopher Evelyn Underhill. In the words of the anthologist: ´´This little collection is intended to present to American readers the character of contemporary British verse. The period has now definitely assumed the name of ´Georgian´. It began with John Masefield and has grown into the newer blossoming of Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves, and Robert Nichols.´´ The poets whose work is represented in this anthology are, in order of appearance: Ralph Hodgson, Willoughby Weaving, John Freeman, Osbert Sitwell, Seosamh MacCathmhaoil (Joseph Campbell), John Drinkwater, TW Earp, William H. Davies, Fredegond Shove, Harold Monro, Ford Madox Hueffer, Richard Middleton, Thomas MacDonagh, William H.
