From Goodreads:
"THE ATTACK ON REASON

In this stimulating volume, a noted scholar presents the philosophy of the 19th century, the most explosive and revolutionary period in the evolution of formal thinking since the collision of rationalism and traditional Christianity. Pointing out that the philosophers of the 19th century agreed in their systematic breakdown of the traditional philosophical methods and views of the traditional subjects of philosophy, Henry D. Aiken demonstrates the trends that lead up to philosophical dilemmas of our own day through a selection of the writings of such diverse thinkers as Kant, Schopenhauer, Comte, Spencer, Marx, and Kierkegaard."

"This affordable, chronologically arranged anthology features more than 500 poems written between the eighth century and the present. Multiple works by major poets allow students to compare different poems by the same author. The overall theme of the book asserts that poetry is a crafted art that is either molded by, added to, or reacting against tradition.

This used paperback copy of Tales of H.P. Lovecraft, selected by Joyce Carol Oates, was published in 2000 by Harper Collins. It has some very minor wear and tear, and is in great condition.

From Goodreads:
"When he died in 1937, destitute and emotionally and physically ruined. H.P. Lovecraft had no idea that he would come to be regarded as the godfather of the modern horror genre, nor that his work would influence an entire generation of writers, including Stephen King and Anne Rice. Now, at last, the most important tales of this distinctive American genious are gathered in one volume by National Book Award-winning author Joyce Carol Oates.

Combining the nineteenth-century gothic sesibility of Edgar Allan Poe with a daring internal vision, Lovecraft's tales foretold a psychically troubled century to come. Set in a meticulously described, historically grounded New England landscape, his harrowing stories explore the collapse of sanity beneath the weight of chaotic events. Lovecraft's universe is a frightening shadow world where reality and nightmare intertwine, and redemption can come only from below. In her preceptive and penetrating introduction, Oates, herself a virtuoso of the Gothic style, explains how Lovecraft's singular talents fused the supernatural and mundane into a terrifying complex, exquisitely realized vision."

This used paperback copy of Different Seasons by Stephen King was published in 1983 by Signet. The book is beat up and the cover is creased slightly. The book is still in great condition.

From Goodreads:
A "hypnotic" (The New York Times Book Review) collection of four novellas from Stephen King bound together by the changing of seasons, each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters.
"The wondrous readability of his work, as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters, are what make Stephen King the consummate storyteller that he is," hailed the Houston Chronicle about Different Seasons.

This gripping collection begins with "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge—the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption. Next is "Apt Pupil," the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school student Todd Bowden and his obsession with the dark and deadly past of an older man in town. In "The Body," four rambunctious young boys plunge through the façade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. This novella became the movie Stand By Me. Finally, a disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death in "The Breathing Method."
