Shakespeare's wordplay by M. M Mahood( )

72 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

`Professor Mahood's book has established itself as a classic in the field, not so much because of the ingenuity with which she reads Shakespeare's quibbles, but because her elucidation of pun and wordplay is intelligently related both to textual readings and dramatic significance.' - Revue des Langues Vivantes

Poetry and humanism by M. M Mahood( Book )

48 editions published between 1930 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The strength of the seventeenth-century writers lies in their power to meet a challenge which later religious poets evaded. Donne and his followers are humanists, alive to all new discoveries about the physical world and the nature of man; but they are theocentric humanists, able to reconcile these discoveries with the central tenets of their faith as Christians. This book attempts to trace this reintegration in the work of the Metaphysical poets and of Milton, and suggests that in this reintegration lies the real affinity between seventeenth-century poetry and the Baroque mode in the visual arts
The poet as botanist by M. M Mahood( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Besides exploring the relationship between poetic and scientific responses to the green world within the context of humanity's changing concepts of its own place in the ecosphere, Molly Mahood considers the part that flowering plants played in the daily lives, and therefore in the literary work of a number of writers who could all be called poet-botanists. A concluding chapter looks closely at the meanings, old or new, that plants retained or obtained in the violent twentieth century."--Jacket

Bit parts in Shakespeare's plays by M. M Mahood( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molly Mahood has written a wholly original survey of the small supporting roles which abound in Shakespeare's plays. The practice of doubling enabled Elizabethan dramatists to surround their principal characters with a host of lesser Lords, Soldiers, Messengers and Servants. This book argues that Shakespeare was well aware of the contribution that can be made to a play, not only by such memorable bit parts as the Apothecary in Romeo and Juliet, or Macbeth's Porter, but also by the thoughtful and resourceful stage presentation of Second Gentlemen and Third Citizens who have been allotted only a line or two apiece. Professor Mahood explores the different purposes served by such minimal characters, from clearing the stage to epitomising the overall effect of a comedy or tragedy. She then describes the entire corpus of minimal roles in a selection of plays, ranging from the early Richard the Third to The Tempest. In describing the intricate details of each role, the possibilities for cutting or doubling parts and deploying actors around the stage, Professor Mahood has addressed not only the scholar and Shakespeare lover, but also the practical interests of actors and directors

A John Clare flora by M. M Mahood( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Mahood now brings to bear her immense experience as a scholar and a writer to describe and discuss Clare's mention of plants, in a book that is both a wonderful series of concise essays and an invaluable reference source for lovers of Clare, poetry, flowers, wildlife and the natural world. Ordered according to the latest system of classification, 'A John Clare Flora' is fully indexed by both scientific and common names, including those used by Clare, so that every reference to plants in his writings may easily be found. The entries are also tied to the best editions of Clare's poetry and prose. 'A John Clare Flora' is, as Richard Mabey notes in his insightful foreword, a 'remarkable volume ... which somehow contrives to be both magisterial and intimate', as well as providing 'a manifesto' for those interested in preserving the rich variety of plant-life in this country."--Publisher information
