  • Tyranny in Shakespeareby Mary Ann McGrail

    Lexington Books 2001; US$ 32.99

    Even the most explicitly political contemporary approaches to Shakespeare have been uninterested by his tyrants as such. But for Shakespeare, rather than a historical curiosity or psychological aberration, tyranny is a perpetual political and human problem. Mary Ann McGrail's recovery of the playwright's perspective challenges the grounds of this modern... more...

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2013; US$ 23.13

    Nur ein einziges Mal in der Geschichte, im Epochenjahr 31 v. Chr., standen sich Rom und Ägypten in einer Seeschlacht gegenüber. Für beide Supermächte ging es um Sieg oder Untergang.

    Philipp von Zabern Verlag 2013; US$ 23.13
