In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England. London was alive with an interest in all things Scottish, and Shakespeare turned to Scottish history for material. He found a spectacle of violence and stories of traitors advised by witches and wizards, echoing James’s belief in a connection between treason and witchcraft.<BR> <BR>In depicting a man who murders to become king, <i>Macbeth</i> teases us with huge questions. Is Macbeth tempted by fate, or by his or his wife’s ambition? Why does their success turn to ashes?<BR> <BR>Like other plays, <i>Macbeth</i> speaks to each generation. Its story was once seen as that of a hero who commits an evil act and pays an enormous price. Recently, it has been applied to nations that overreach themselves and to modern alienation. The line is blurred between Macbeth’s evil and his opponents’ good, and there are new attitudes toward both witchcraft and gender.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Macbeth</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> -Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently linked to 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 Susan Snyder<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.

Little has been written on the subject, and much of that is scattered throughout dozens of books and magazines. Because of this, it has been difficult for the student to obtain all the information necessary to his becoming a proficient coin worker. This deficiency in magical literature has long been recognized, but little has been done about it. In recent years there have appeared a few books devoted partly to coin magic but none has filled the necessary need adequately.<br />Of course, not all the material in this book is new. It is not intended to be. The purpose, as mentioned in the beginning, is to cover the subject of sleight of hand coin magic in all its practical aspects. To do this it has been necessary to include many of the standard principles of the past. However, all out-of-date or otherwise impractical sleights have been eliminated. Only the best and most useful have been retained. To these basic principles have been added many new and revolutionary ideas, all of which should give the student a conception of coin magic hitherto unknown.<br />The best coin tricks require skill, but there are few magicians today who are willing to spend the necessary time and practice obtaining that skill. Jean Hugard summarized his opinion on the subject well when he said, “There is an unfortunate trend among those who dabble in magic, and even those who rate themselves as magicians, to avoid anything that requires a little study and practice and to rely on tricks that work themselves, tricks ‘that can be done five minutes after you receive them,’ as we see advertised so often.”<br />Of all the branches of magic none is so practical as the manipulation of coins. Coins are always available. If a magician can do a few coin tricks he is always prepared to entertain.<br />Learning the moves of tricks and sleights is not enough. They should be practiced over and over, dozens of times, so that you can do them automatically, without thinking. Only then will you be able to give your attention to presentation, patter, misdirection, and all those things that have so much to do with making a magician a success. The secret workings of a trick are only a means to an end.<br />A well-presented trick is like a beautiful piece of music—audiences never tire of it. I have seen Blackstone perform the Dancing Handkerchief dozens of times but I always enjoy seeing it again. And Le Paul with his beautiful card magic. Who could tire of watching him! And so it is with all good entertainers—they are masters of their art and people always welcome the opportunity of seeing them again and again. And if it be your desire to master this art, take heart; for ‘No man is his crafts’ master the first day.’

Next Level Voice Over Domination is the leading edge of voice over business development. Nowhere else will you find these amazing and undeniable business building strategies and mindsets. This book is a compilation of two of my best selling books with updates and additions that work in today's voice over marketplace.<br /><br />This book is the only book showing actual steps to becoming a voice-over artist from ground zero. More than that it will give you the mindset you actually need to have to build an actual voice over business. Let’s just be real. You can find these tactics and strategies anywhere. Well some of them anyway. Most books like this never give you the actual ‘thing’ that is going to set you on the path to discovering your actual purpose in this thing called voice over. this book will.<br /><br />One of the biggest issues that I address, right out of the gate, is mindset. So many people have a poor self-image or they simply just don’t believe in themselves enough.<br />I realized long ago that many voice-over artists are simply not equipped with the ability to go beyond their own self-limiting beliefs. This can center around issues with money. Not feeling good enough to charge an appropriate rate for what it is they do.<br /><br />This can lead to competing on price (that will kill any business) on the multitude of freelance sites that are out there. Among many other things that block their ability to reach their income goals.<br /><br />Trying to be the lowest cost provider for voice-over services will leave you broke, depressed, and can lead to you quitting the industry altogether.<br /><br />This book will help you stay on the right path and align with your purpose in voice-over.<br /><br />

In A <i>Midsummer Night’s Dream</i>, Shakespeare stages the workings of love. Theseus and Hippolyta, about to marry, are figures from mythology. In the woods outside Theseus’ Athens, two young men and two young women sort themselves out into couples—but not before they form first one love triangle, and then another.<BR> <BR>Also in the woods, the king and queen of fairyland, Oberon and Titania, battle over custody of an orphan boy; Oberon uses magic to make Titania fall in love with a weaver named Bottom, whose head is temporarily transformed into that of a donkey by a hobgoblin or “puck,” Robin Goodfellow. Finally, Bottom and his companions ineptly stage the tragedy of “Pyramus and Thisbe.”<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>A Midsummer Night's Dream</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 linked to 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 Catherine Belsey<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.

In <i>Romeo and Juliet</i>, Shakespeare creates a violent world, in which two young people fall in love.

Life didn’t do Kenny Tingle any favors. In The Girl in the Italian Bakery, follow his journey from childhood in a tough housing project north of Boston, the abduction and disappearance of a childhood friend, to the complete destruction of a family. His introduction to crime and the years he spent in foster homes. The poor choices he made in high school and the startling climax on prom night. Although he never has trouble meeting girls, the one girl he longs for always seems out of reach. The Girl in the Italian Bakery is the remarkably true story of always keeping hope, even when there is little left to hope for. This is a story of surviving through extreme adversity, and, ultimately, redemption.

Shakespeare may have written <i>Julius Caesar</i> as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar’s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare’s play keeps this debate alive.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Julius Caesar</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> -Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently linked to 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 Coppélia Kahn<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.
