As You Like It was written around 1599 and is one of Shakespeare’s comedies. It is set in a pastoral world (an idealized rural setting) and is full of jokes, songs, puns, and romance. It is one of the most light-hearted of Shakespeares works. There are more songs in As You Like It than any other Shakespeare play. The play makes many references to classical mythology and medieval folklore. It was inspired by Thomas Lodge’s story Rosalynde published in 1590. The play is partly set in the countryside in France, in the Forest of Arden (or, alternatively, Ardenne). In contrast, the other setting is the court of a duchy. In the duchy, Duke Frederick has successfully usurped his brother Duke Senior from his position as ruler. Duke Senior has been exiled to the Forest of Arden, where he vows to begin anew, along with his followers and supporters. The exiles talk about the qualities of court life and how they compare to country life. This annotated edition includes a biography and critical essay.

Virginia Woolf: Orlando – Geschichte eines Lebens || Für die eBook-Ausgabe neu lektoriert und mit modernisierter Rechtschreibung. Voll verlinkt, mit eBook-Inhaltsverzeichnis und zahlreichen Erklärungen zeittypischer Ausdrücke. | Virginia Woolf schickt ihren Helden auf einen Parforceritt durch Raum, Zeit, soziale Milieus und sogar Geschlechterrollen. Geboren im 16. Jahrhundert als Adeliger in London, verschlägt es Orlando nach Konstantinopel. Dort erwacht er nach mehrtägigem Schlaf als Frau und setzt sein Leben in weiblicher Rolle fort. Durch diese radikale Änderung gewinnt er/sie erhellende Einsichten in die Beziehung der Geschlechter, die ›Normalsterblichen‹ verborgen bleiben. Zurück in London – wir schreiben inzwischen das späte 19. Jahrhundert – wird sie zur erfolgreichen Schriftstellerin. Im Jahr 1928, das Buch endet hier, sehen wir die nun etwa 300jährige Orlando, äußerlich eine Frau von Mitte 30, die Fahrt in ihrem neuen Automobil genießen. | ›Orlando‹ ist ein Meisterwerk, angesiedelt zwischen Schelmenroman und Sozialstudie. Hier kann Virginia Woolf ihrer unbändigen schriftstellerischen Phantasie freien Lauf lassen, gepaart mit elegant leichtem Schreibstil, der die unglaubliche Geschichte wie selbstverständlich dahinfließen lässt.

In The Value of Virginia Woolf, Madelyn Detloff explores the writings of Virginia Woolf from her early texts to her challenging and inventive novels. Detloff demonstrates why Woolf has enduring value for our own time, both as a defender of modernist experimentation and as a novelist of innovation and poetic vision who also exhibits moments of intense insight and philosophical depth. A famously enigmatic figure, Woolf's literary works offer different rewards to different readers. The Value of Virginia Woolf examines not only the significance of her most celebrated fiction but the function of time and allegory, natural and urban spaces, voice and language that give Woolf's writings their perennial appeal.

This copiously annotated bibliography documents and examines the whole range of commentary on Strindberg's works and activity in many fields besides the plays for which he is internationally best known. These include his prose fiction and poetry, his work as an historian and natural historian, and his relationship to the other arts, most notably his painting. It is concerned with both lasting works of literary and dramatic criticism, as well as reviews of his books and plays in the theatre, and some more ephemeral material, all of this in several languages. Organised generically and by subject and individual work, the bibliography enables the reader to trace the changing impact of Strindberg and his works in various countries and during different periods. It is thus very much a study in reception as well as a bibliographical record of published material. It traces the developing image of Strindberg and his writing both during his lifetime and in subsequent years, and with frequent cross reference offers a comprehensive overview of a literary and existential project that has rarely been matched for its multifaceted diversity. The bibliography is published in three parts. Volume 1, General Studies (978-0-947623-81-4) and Volume 2, The Plays (978-0-947623-82-1) are also now available. Michael Robinson is Emeritus Professor of Drama and Scandinavian Studies at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.
