Customer Reviews
<DIV> <DIV> One of the best-known, most frequently performed of modern plays, <I>A Doll's House</I> richly displays the genius with which Henrik Ibsen pioneered modern, realistic prose drama. In the central character of Nora, Ibsen epitomized the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Nora's ultimate rejection of a smothering marriage and life in "a doll's house" shocked theatergoers of the late 1800s and opened new horizons for playwrights and their audiences.<BR>But daring social themes are only one aspect of Ibsen's power as a dramatist. <I>A Doll's House</I> shows as well his gifts for creating realistic dialogue, a suspenseful flow of events and, above all, psychologically penetrating characterizations that make the struggles of his dramatic personages utterly convincing. Here is a deeply absorbing play as readable as it is eminently playable, reprinted from an authoritative translation.<BR>A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.</DIV></DIV>

Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". According to Declan Kiberd, "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking." Ulysses chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. The novel imitates registers of centuries of English literature and is highly allusive. This publication is an original edition. Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose — full of puns, parodies, and allusions — as well as its rich characterisation and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the modernist pantheon.

Shakespeare’s <i>Richard II</i> presents a momentous struggle between Richard II and his cousin Henry Bolingbroke. Richard is the legitimate king; he succeeded his grandfather, King Edward III, after the earlier death of his father Edward, the Black Prince. Yet Richard is also seen by many as a tyrant. He toys with his subjects, exiling Bolingbroke for six years.<BR> <BR>When he seizes the title and property that should be Bolingbroke’s, Richard threatens the very structure of the kingdom. Bolingbroke returns with an army that is supported by nobles and commoners alike, both believing themselves oppressed by Richard. This sets the stage for a confrontation between his army and the tradition of sacred kingship supporting the isolated but now more sympathetic Richard.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Richard II</i> from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:<BR> <BR>-The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference<BR> -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation<BR> -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play<BR> -Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play<BR> -Scene-by-scene plot summaries<BR> -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases<BR> -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language<BR> -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play<BR> -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books<BR> -An annotated guide to further reading<BR> <BR>Essay by Harry Berger, Jr.<BR> <BR>The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

<i>Antony and Cleopatra</i> dramatizes a major event in world history: the founding of the Roman Empire. The future first emperor, Octavius Caesar (later called Augustus Caesar), cold-bloodedly manipulates other characters and exercises iron control over himself.<BR> <BR>At first, he shares power with Mark Antony, Rome’s preeminent military leader, and the weaker Lepidus. Caesar needs Antony to fend off other Roman strongmen like Pompey; he even offers his sister Octavia to him as a bride, despite Antony’s reputation as a libertine and his past rivalry with Caesar. Once Caesar defeats Pompey, however, he needs no allies. He brings charges against Lepidus, denies Antony his spoils from Pompey’s defeat, and seizes cities in the eastern Roman colonies that Antony rules.<BR> <BR>The play’s emphasis, however, is on those whom Caesar defeats: Antony and his wealthy Egyptian ally, Queen Cleopatra. The play does not sugarcoat Antony and Cleopatra’s famous love affair, including her calculated attempts to seduce Antony from his duties and his rage when he thinks she has betrayed him to Caesar. Nonetheless, the lovers find such sensual and emotional satisfaction that Caesar’s world conquest seems smaller than what they find in each other.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Antony and Cleopatra</i> from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:<BR> <BR>-The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference<BR> -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation<BR> -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play<BR> -Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play<BR> -Scene-by-scene plot summaries<BR> -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases<BR> -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language<BR> -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play<BR> -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books<BR> -An annotated guide to further reading<BR> <BR>Essay by Cynthia Marshall<BR> <BR>The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

“One of the best literary works of this year” (<I>Miami Herald-Tribune</I>): The true story of a theatrical dream—or nightmare—come true…the making of the Spider-Man musical.<BR><BR>As you might imagine, writing a Broadway musical has its challenges. But it turns out there are challenges one can’t begin to imagine when collaborating with two rock legends and a superstar director to stage the biggest, most expensive production in theater history. Renowned director Julie Taymor picked playwright Glen Berger to cowrite the book for a $25 million Spider-Man musical. Together—along with U2’s Bono and Edge—they would shape a work that was technically daring and emotionally profound, with a story fueled by the hero’s quest for love…and the villains’ quest for revenge. Or at least, that’s what they’d hoped for.<BR> <BR>But when charismatic producer Tony Adams died suddenly, the show began to lose its footing. Soon the budget was ballooning, financing was evaporating, and producers were jumping ship or getting demoted. And then came the injuries. And then came word-of-mouth about the show itself. What followed was a pageant of foul-ups, falling-outs, ever-more harrowing mishaps, and a whole lot of malfunctioning spider legs. This “circus-rock-and-roll-drama,” with its $65 million price tag, had become more of a spectacle than its creators ever wished for. During the show’s unprecedented seven months of previews, the company’s struggles to reach opening night inspired breathless tabloid coverage and garnered international notoriety.<BR> <BR>Through it all, Berger observed the chaos with his signature mix of big ambition and self-deprecating humor.

Growing up, Edward Caspian believed he would one day write the great American novel for his generation. As a youth he was exceptionally intelligent, always feeling ahead of his peers both intellectually and emotionally. Edward feels that his generation has not yet been accurately represented in literature and constantly struggles with the ideas of legacy, happiness and the importance of success as he sees his friends find careers and start families. When his best friend and successful musician Giles Green tells Edward he is terminally ill, Edward sets out on a journey through his own past, not only to conjure nostalgia of his friend and their paths in order to cope but to redirect where he thought his life would be by age 29. He falls back on a strange and long dormant addiction of attending strangers’ funerals, an experiment once indulged in during his college years as a way to observe grief and human behavior at its most taut and extreme moments. Journal entries and stream of consciousness flows from Edward chaotically and without reason as he grits his teeth to survive his secret writer’s block and the return of an old crush. His inner dialogue is brilliant, convincing and beautiful, but he cannot see his own talent, and instead cultivates his delusion that he will pen his generation’s next great work. Inspiration is all around him yet he is so wrapped up in his singular obsession that nothing substantial is ever written. As the clock ticks down for Giles, Edward must come to terms with his friend’s legacy and examine what his own is still capable of achieving.<br />
