The faerie queene by Edmund Spenser( Book )

59 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Faerie Queene is one of the great seminal masterpieces of English literature, and has influenced, inspired and challenged generations of writers, readers and scholars since its completion in 1596. Its vigorous narrative and colorful descriptions make it appear superficially one of the most accessible of major works; but it is perhaps the hardest of all to come to grips with, because of its epic length, its prodigality of incident and detail, the complexity of its allegory and the richness of its topical allusions. Few works so much demand or repay introduction and annotation - yet there had been no adequate complete critical edition available for the scholar, student or general reader until Professor Hamilton's edition, itself a work of major scholarship, appeared in 1977. It provides exceptionally full and careful annotation of the text, detailed guidance to critical comment past and present, and a wealth of introductory material setting the poem in its full historical and literary context. Now the eagerly-awaited paperback version makes the full richness and intricacy of the great poem accessible to students and poetry lovers everywhere. -- from back cover

The myth of deliverance : reflections on Shakespeare's problem comedies by Northrop Frye( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these essays Northrop Frye addresses a question which preoccupied him throughout his long and distinguished career – the conception of comedy, particularly Shakespearean comedy, and its relation to human experience.In most forms of comedy, and certainly in the New Comedy with which Shakespeare was concerned, the emphasis is on moving towards a climax in which the end incorporates the beginning. Such a climax is a vision of deliverance or expanded energy and freedom. Frye draws on the Aristotelian notion of reversal, or peripeteia, to analyse the three plays commonly known as the 'problem comedies': Measure for Measure, All's Well That Ends Well, and Troilus and Cressida, showing how they anticipate the romances of Shakespeare's final period

Report of the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry of Manitoba by Manitoba( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Aboriginal Justice Inquiry was created in response to two specific incidents: the death of Helen Betty Osborne and John Joseph Harper. These were separate incidents but were seen by many as troubling examples of the manner in which Manitoba's justice system was failing Aboriginal people. The scope of the inquiry was to include all components of the justice system, that is, policing, courts, and correctional services. The Commission considered whether Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples were treated differently by the system and whether there were specific adverse effects, including possible systemic discrimination against Aboriginal people. The final written report is a thorough review
