Book Summary :

Роман «Сад бабочек», вышедший в США в 2016 году, буквально взорвал рейтинги «Амазона», уверенно и надолго став бестселлером No1 этого крупнейшего книжного рынка. Читателям стало ясно: на небосклон остросюжетной литературы взошла новая звезда, по своему таланту сравнимая с такими мастерами жанра, как Томас Харрис, Джон Фаулз и Дэвид Болдаччи...Эти девушки знают его лишь как Садовника – мужчину, который похитил их и поселил здесь, в таинственном саду под стеклянным куполом, с тенистыми деревьями и прекрасными цветами, ручьем и водопадом. Но для них это место – не рай, а сущий ад. И они ни на секунду не забывают: век их короток, как век бабочек, вытатуированных на их спинах, и может оборваться в любой момент. А сколько им отмерено жить, решает один лишь Садовник...

Book Summary :

I found myself looking back on all the mistakes I made in my life, seeing where I was not properly equipped, where Satan was watching and waiting to sift me like wheat. It started with the seed of pride-a simple answer to a seemingly straightforward question. 'Who do you think is the most spiritual in your graduating class?' But pride comes before a fall, and with a resounding, 'I am!' eighteen-year-old Deanna Wilson set herself high on a pedestal. But she fell...hard. It didn't take long for Satan to wrap his wormy claws around her heart and convince her to pop just one pill, take just one hit, have just one more drink. Deanna soon finds herself pregnant, alone, addicted to cocaine, and dancing as a stripper five nights a week to make enough money to support her lifestyle and her baby-all before the age of twenty-five. A Wounded Daughter's Diary is the story of Deanna Wilson's struggle from the depths of hell on earth to a place of redemption, where she is finally able to see the realization of dreams she'd almost stopped praying for. As Deanna candidly recounts her poor choices and the tragic awareness that comes only in hindsight, her life speaks to all who feel the menacing tug of pride on their own hearts. A Wounded Daughter's Diary speaks about our heavenly father that loves unconditionally; he is the only one who can heal our wounds and bring us out of the darkness into the pure, white light of true forgiveness.

Book Summary :

With an introduction by Simon Callow Judgements about the quality of works of art begin in opinion. But for the last two hundred years only the wilfully perverse (and Tolstoy) have denied the validity of the opinion that Shakespeare was a genius. Who was Shakespeare? Why has his writing endured? And what makes it so endlessly adaptable to different times and cultures? Exploring Shakespeare's life, including questions of authorship and autobiography, and charting how his legacy has grown over the centuries, this extraordinary book asks how Shakespeare has come to be such a powerful symbol of genius. Written with lively passion and wit, The Genius of Shakespeare is a fascinating biography of the life - and afterlife - of our greatest poet. Jonathan Bate, one of the world's leading Shakespearean scholars, has shown how the legend of Shakespeare's genius was created and sustained, and how the man himself became a truly global phenomenon.

Book Summary :

One of our most important cultural critics, at the top of her form, comments on a wide range of topics in both general and academic culture. In Loaded Words the inimitable literary and cultural critic Marjorie Garber invites readers to join her in a rigorous and exuberant exploration of language. What links the pieces included in this vibrant new collection is the author's contention that all words are inescapably loaded-that is, highly charged, explosive, substantial, intoxicating, fruitful, and overbrimming-and that such loading is what makes language matter. Garber casts her keen eye on terms from knowledge, belief, madness, interruption, genius, and celebrity to humanities, general education, and academia. Included here are an array of stirring essays, from the title piece, with its demonstration of the importance of language to our thinking about the world; to the superb "Mad Lib," on the concept of madness from Mad magazine to debates between Foucault and Derrida; to pieces on Shakespeare, "the most culturally loaded name of our time," and the Renaissance. With its wide range of cultural references and engaging style coupled with fresh intellectual inquiry, Loaded Words will draw in and enchant scholars, students, and general readers alike.

Book Summary :

THE REAL SHAKESPEARE This book proves that Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, wrote the plays we know as “Shakespearean.” In the play “Hamlet,” in a very special coded way, he signed his name “Ver” hundreds of times. These clues in “Hamlet” provide the stamp of his authorship! All of the Shakespearean plays and sonnets reflect incidents in the life of Edward de Vere. The real events in his life involved violence, intrigue and love—and some of them were shocking! In a web of conjecture those incidents have been tied together in a novel about de Vere. This novel is one of the main parts of this book. The other two parts are the proof!

Book Summary :

Societies and entire nations draw their identities from certain founding documents, whether charters, declarations, or manifestos. The Book of Common Prayer figures as one of the most crucial in the history of the English-speaking peoples. First published in 1549 to make accessible the devotional language of the late Henry the VIII's new church, the prayer book was a work of monumental religious, political, and cultural importance. Within its rituals, prescriptions, proscriptions, and expressions were fought the religious wars of the age of Shakespeare. This diminutive book--continuously reformed and revised--was how that age defined itself. In Shakespeare's Common Prayers, Daniel Swift makes dazzling and original use of this foundational text, employing it as an entry-point into the works of England's most celebrated writer. Though commonly neglected as a source for Shakespeare's work, Swift persuasively and conclusively argues that the Book of Common Prayer was absolutely essential to the playwright. It was in the Book's ambiguities and its fierce contestations that Shakespeare found the ready elements of drama: dispute over words and their practical consequences, hope for sanctification tempered by fear of simple meaninglessness, and the demand for improvised performance as compensation for the failure of language to fulfill its promises. What emerges is nothing less than a portrait of Shakespeare at work: absorbing, manipulating, reforming, and struggling with the explosive chemistry of word and action that comprised early modern liturgy. Swift argues that the Book of Common Prayer mediates between the secular and the devotional, producing a tension that makes Shakespeare's plays so powerful and exceptional. Tracing the prayer book's lines and motions through As You Like It, Hamlet, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Othello, and particularly Macbeth, Swift reveals how the greatest writer of the age--of perhaps any age--was influenced and guided by its most important book.

Book Summary :

This is a revised version of the book which was privately published by the author in 1982. At the time, the book was widely welcomed by Shakespearean scholars as a trenchant, scholarly and highly orginal contribution to the field of Shakespearean studies. The book's argument is that a full response to Shakespearean tragedy has to take account of the fate of the victims as well as of the tragic heroesl and this thesis is illustrated and developed by a consideration of Lavinia, Lucrece and the children in Richard III, Macbeth and King John; and to the thee principal Shakespearean tragic victims, Ophelia, Desemona and Cordelia.
