    In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England.

    Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man, with a strong sense of decency and of honour.

  • The Dynastsby Thomas Hardy

    ReadHowYouWant 2009; US$ 4.99

    The Dynasts is a closet drama about the Napoleonic war. ''It may, I think, claim at least a tolerable fidelity to the facts of its date as they are give in ordinary records,'' Hardy says in his preface, but this is no merely historical drama, as the story more...

  • Pygmalionby George Bernard Shaw; Nicholas Grene

    Penguin Books Ltd 2003; US$ 12.68

    Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the... more...
