  • The Tao and the Bardby Phillip DePoy

    Arcade Publishing 2013; US$ 16.95

  • Shakespeare and the Rose of Loveby John Vyvyan

    Shepheard-Walwyn 2013; US$ 24.99

    Offering an unusual and exceptionally clear insight into Shakespeare?s philosophy and a viewpoint seldom considered, this book argues that his philosophy was consistent, consciously held, and profoundly Christian.

  • 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...

  • Spirit, Soul, and Cityby Jan Blits

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2013; US$ 40.74

    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. Octavian, der spätere Augustus, traf an der Küste vor Actium auf den »Verräter Roms« ? wie er Marcus Antonius in seiner Propaganda nannte ? und dessen Geliebte Kleopatra,... more...

  • Helden, ihre Frauen und Trojaby Angelika Dierichs

    Philipp von Zabern Verlag 2013; US$ 61.11

    Von A wie Achilles bis P wie Priamos: Helden sind auch nur Männer. Beinamen wie «der Jammervolle» und «der Übelriechende» belegen das. Doch da gibt es auch noch die Gattinnen, Geliebten und Geraubten: von A wie Aaxabia bis L wie Lavinia. Grausames Hinschlachten, widerwärtige Hinterhältigkeit, feiger Verrat, kaltblütiges Morden sind angesagt neben aufopfernder... more...

  • William Shakespeareby Sonja Fielitz

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2013; US$ 146.63

    Seit über 350 Jahren wird kontinuierlich Shakespeare-Philologie betrieben.
