This book reads like a cross between a literary detective novel and a personal conversation with a passionate Shakespeare scholar, unpacking the play that Roth calls the seminal text of the humanist religion. It unveils new realities about the playsome of which have have lain hidden since Shakespeares dayuntangles centuries of commentary and criticism, and delivers the punch lines for a whole raft of Shakespeares remarkably involved in-jokes. Roths scholarship tackles old arguments like Hamlets age (hes sixteen), lays out the intricate time structure thats embedded in the play, and unravels several of the plays endless allusions that so puzzle the will. He depicts a dense, ironic, and multivalent web of political and dramatic tension in Elsinore (plus a great deal of humor), and delivers one ahamoment after another for lovers of the Bards greatest tragedy.

‘This is a wonderful book: curious and insightful’ Ian Mortimer, author of The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England We know what happens to the body when we die, but what happens to the soul? The answer may remain a great unknown, but the question has shaped centuries of tradition, folklore and religious belief. In this vivid history of the macabre, Carl Watkins goes in search of the ancient customs, local characters and compelling tales that illuminate how people over the years have come to terms with our ultimate fate. The result is an enthralling journey into Britain’s past, from medieval hauntings on the Yorkshire moors and eccentric memorials on the Cornish coast to séances in Victorian kitchens and gallows tales from a Bristol gaol. Impeccably researched and elegantly told, The Undiscovered Country ventures beyond the veil to bring the dead back to life.

The Undiscovered Country, the second part of Stan Erisman’s autobiographical sixpart book series called Hindsights, begins where NaturalShocks left off: with Norm and Stan’s busride across the American West, from Chicago to San Francisco in June 1964. Unlike Norm, Stan has to struggle to make a clean break with his upbringing as a Fundamentalist Christian. But both young men revel in their new-found freedom, while meeting the challenges of finding jobs, housing and companionship in a totally new environment– and drifting apart. That fall, Stan meets Jeanette, his first great love. He also causes a senseless rift with Norm, and takes his first university course. Stan’s mom does everything in her power to interfere in Stan and Jeanette’s plans to marry, but their love eventually wins the day. Meanwhile, Stan becomes enraged at how he and his fellow workers are treated. Lacking a clear moral compass, he takes the law into his own hands with potentially disastrous results. Stan and Jeanette work together to divest themselves of the remnants of their childhood indoctrination, while developing new guidelines for living. Meanwhile, the Vietnam War continues to escalate –a war that Stan finds unjust. He and Jeanette decide to flee to Canada, where Stan enrolls in graduate school at UBC. But they soon becomes restless, and Jeanette suggests they move to Europe instead. And Stan begins to paint again.

Winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award for Southern Fiction: “A precise, elaborate tale that shows just how menacing a family’s history can be” (Kirkus Reviews). When Randle’s mother becomes critically ill he rushes to her bedside to comfort her. As he puts her affairs in order, he expects to face long-suppressed memories and contemptuous siblings, but he does not expect to discover that in her younger years, while he was an unaware child, his mother was a feisty, courageous woman who bravely battled an abusive husband and made fateful decisions for the good of her children. Now she wants nothing more than to die with dignity, with her secrets intact. But Randle learns that her husband was not his birth father, that a wealthy man who is being extorted claims to be his birth father, and his mother hopes to take the secret of his biological father’s true identity to her grave. As he grapples with the implications for his own identity, Randle uncovers a murder no one knew had been committed and struggles to protect the unwitting man who intends to bequeath him millions of dollars. When he unravels his mother’s dark secrets he unlocks his own demons and is left with the agonizing choice between revenge and greed or forgiveness. “An intriguing who-done-it story that critiques antiquated social practices and values while remaining affectionate to its Georgia setting . . . A story centered on an all-around Southern family, complete with all the dying pageantry and tradition of passing generations in a changing South.” —Deep South magazine

In this sequence of essays, Ian Angus engages with themes of identity, power, and the nation as they emerge in contemporary English Canadian philosophical thought, seeking to prepare the groundwork for a critical theory of neoliberal globalization. The essays are organized into three parts. The opening part offers a nuanced critique of the Hegelian confidence and progressivism that has come to dominate Canadian intellectual life. Through an analysis of the work of several prominent Canadian thinkers, among them Charles Taylor and C. B. Macpherson, Angus suggests that Hegelian frames of reference are inadequate, failing as they do to accommodate the fact of English Canada's continuing indebtedness to empire. The second part focuses on national identity and political culture, including the role of Canadian studies as a discipline, adapting its critical method to Canadian political culture. The first two parts culminate in the positive articulation, in Part 3, of author's own conception, one that is at once more utopian and more tragic than that of the first two parts. Here, Angus develops the concept of locative thought--the thinking of a people who have undergone dispossession, "of a people seeking its place and therefore of a people that has not yet found its place."Ian Angus is currently professor of humanities at Simon Fraser University. He has written several books on contemporary philosophy and communication, as well as on English Canadian social and political thought, among them A Border Within: National Identity, Cultural Plurality and Wilderness and Identity and Justic e. He is also the author of the more popularly oriented Emergent Publics: An Essay on Social Movements and Democracy and Love the Questions: University Education and Enlightenment. He lives in East Vancouver with his wife and daughter.

William Logan has been called both the "preeminent poet-critic of his generation" and the "most hated man in American poetry." For more than a quarter century, in the keen-witted and bare-knuckled reviews that have graced the New York Times Book Review, the Times Literary Supplement (London), and other journals, William Logan has delivered razor-sharp assessments of poets present and past. Logan, whom James Wolcott of Vanity Fair has praised as being "the best poetry critic in America," vividly assays the most memorable and most damning features of a poet's work. While his occasionally harsh judgments have raised some eyebrows and caused their share of controversy (a number of poets have offered to do him bodily harm), his readings offer the fresh and provocative perspectives of a passionate and uncompromising critic, unafraid to separate the tin from the gold. The longer essays in The Undiscovered Country explore a variety of poets who have shaped and shadowed contemporary verse, measuring the critical and textual traditions of Shakespeare's sonnets, Whitman's use of the American vernacular, the mystery of Marianne Moore, and Milton's invention of personality, as well as offering a thorough reconsideration of Robert Lowell and a groundbreaking analysis of Sylvia Plath's relationship to her father. Logan's unsparing "verse chronicles" present a survey of the successes and failures of contemporary verse. Neither a poet's tepid use of language nor lackadaisical ideas nor indulgence in grotesque sentimentality escapes this critic's eye. While railing against the blandness of much of today's poetry (and the critics who trumpet mediocre work), Logan also celebrates Paul Muldoon's high comedy, Anne Carson's quirky originality, Seamus Heaney's backward glances, Czeslaw Milosz's indictment of Polish poetry, and much more. Praise for Logan's previous works: Desperate Measures (2002)"When it comes to separating the serious from the fraudulent, the ambitious from the complacent, Logan has consistently shown us what is wheat and what is chaff.... The criticism we remember is neither savage nor mandarin.... There is no one in his generation more likely to write it than William Logan."—Adam Kirsch, Oxford American Reputations of the Tongue (1999)"Is there today a more stringent, caring reader of American poetry than William Logan? Reputations of the Tongue may, at moments, read harshly. But this edge is one of deeply considered and concerned authority. A poet-critic engages closely with his masters, with his peers, with those whom he regards as falling short. This collection is an adventure of sensibility."—George Steiner "William Logan's critical bedevilments-as well as his celebrations-are indispensable."—Bill Marx, Boston Globe All the Rage (1998)"William Logan's reviews are malpractice suits."—Dennis O'Driscoll, Verse "William Logan is the best practical critic around."—Christian Wiman, Poetry
