    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 104.99 US$ 94.49

    Sophie Duncan illuminates iconoclastic performances of Shakespeare's heroines in late Victorian theatre, through the celebrity, commentary, and careers of the actresses who played them.

  • Loving Justice, Living Shakespeareby Regina Mara Schwartz

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 19.99 US$ 17.99

    Regina Schwartz asks why love is considered a 'soft' subject, fit for the arts but not for boardrooms, parliamentary debates, and courtrooms engaged in the 'serious' discourse of justice. more...

  • The Two Noble Kinsmenby William Shakespeare; John Fletcher; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2016; US$ 7.99 US$ 5.99

    Written by Shakespeare and John Fletcher, this play tells the familiar story of a love triangle. Here, though, it seems distant and strange. The play is based on ?The Knight?s Tale? in Chaucer?s Canterbury Tales . Chaucer?s tale comes from an Italian poem by Boccaccio. Thus in The Two Noble Kinsmen we have a late medieval narrative transformed into... more...

  • King Johnby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2016; US$ 5.99 US$ 4.43

    Like most of Shakespeare?s history plays, King John presents a struggle for the English crown. The struggle this time, however, is strikingly cold-blooded and brutal. John, the younger brother of the late Richard I, is the king, and a savage one. His opponent is a boy, his nephew Arthur, supported by the King of France and the Duke of Austria.... more...

  • Troilus and Cressidaby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2016; US$ 6.99 US$ 4.99

    For Troilus and Cressida , set during the Trojan War, Shakespeare turned to the Greek poet Homer, whose epic poems the Iliad and the Odyssey treat the war and its aftermath, and to Geoffrey Chaucer, author of The Canterbury Tales and the great romance of the war, Troilus and Criseyde. The authoritative edition of Troilus and Cressida from... more...

  • Henry VIIIby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2016; US$ 5.99 US$ 4.43

    In Henry VIII , Shakespeare presents a monarchy in crisis. Noblemen battle with Lord Chancellor Cardinal Wolsey, who taxes the people to the point of rebellion. Witnesses whom Wolsey brings against the Duke of Buckingham claim he is conspiring to take the throne, yet Buckingham seems innocent as he goes to his death. Henry is also without a male... more...

  • Timon of Athensby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2016; US$ 6.99 US$ 4.99

    The real Timon of Athens lived there in the fifth century BCE, making him a contemporary of Socrates and Pericles. Shakespeare presents Timon as a figure who suffers such profound disillusionment that he becomes a misanthrope, or man-hater. This makes him a more interesting character than the caricature he had become to Shakespeare?s contemporaries,... more...

  • Troilus and Cressidaby William Shakespeare; Toby Widdicombe; James Lake

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2016; US$ 7.95

    George Lyman Kittredge?s insightful editions of Shakespeare have endured in part because of his eclecticism, his diversity of interests, and his wide-ranging accomplishments?all of which are reflected in the valuable notes in each volume. The plays in the New Kittredge Shakespeare series retain the original Kittredge notes and introductions, changed... more...

  • Brutus and Other Heroinesby Harriet Walter

    Nick Hern Books 2016; US$ 18.99

    ?A part we have played is like a person we once met, grew to know, became intimately enmeshed with and finally moved away from. Some of these characters remain friends, others are like ex?lovers with whom we no longer have anything in common. All of them bring something out in us that will never go back in the box.? In a varied and distinguished... more...
