A woman killed with kindness by Thomas Heywood( Book )

108 editions published between 1617 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman struggles to survive, and then struggles to die, in Thomas Heywood's startling domestic tragedy about the possession and punishment of women, probably first published in 1607. The marriage of John Frankford, a middling country gentleman, and his wife Anne is comfortable, if uneventful, until he gives his friend Wendoll the free use of his table and purse. Wendoll takes even more than was offered, and confesses his desperate love to Anne, who takes pity on him, and together they fall into infidelity. When they are discovered John banishes his wife to a distant manor, forbidden to see their two children, and it is in the comfort of her exile that she will starve herself to death. In the subplot, a woman devoted to her brother is offered as payment for his debts. Usually considered to be a domestic tragedy, 'A Woman Killed With Kindness' is complex in its didacticism, as Heywood explores the boundaries of marital punishment, and the moral weight of mercy

The first and second parts of King Edward IV by Thomas Heywood( Book )

27 editions published between 1842 and 2015 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet the playwright produced a text which was at once generically complex (the play blurs the distinction between chronicle history and 'domestic' tragedy), brilliantly assured in its dramatic craftsmanship, and politically explosive. The play depicts the streets and houses in which its original spectators lived and worked with a precision unprecedented in English writing. But this vividly realised London is under assault, first from rebels outside its walls, and subsequently (and more seriously) from the predations of two monarchs."

Sallust's Bellum Catilinae by Sallust( Book )

12 editions published between 1924 and 1967 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new and original translation of Sallust's "Conspiracy of Catiline" and "War of Jugurtha" uses a fresh, modern English idiom that preserves the flavor of the historian's famous epigrammatic style. Fully outfitted for comprehension and efficient referencing, this special edition contains the following features: 1. Almost 300 detailed, scholarly footnotes 2. Extended introduction describing the political and military systems of the Roman republic 3. Maps, diagrams, and photographs 4. Topical organization charts 5. Chronological tables 6. Textual commentary 7. Detailed index Considered the first of the great Roman historians, Sallust has been read for centuries for his penetrating character studies, timeless moral insights, and matchless rhetoric. His profiles of flawed men led inexorably to ruin by excessive ambition or character defects resonate with us today more powerfully than ever. Intrigue...murder...the lust for power...and the fatal hubris that leads men to their dooms. These are some of the historian's gripping themes. Deeply concerned with the moral decay and corruption he saw around him, Sallust's pragmatic views of historical forces, personalities, and the psychology of power were aided by his own direct participation in the highest levels of Roman politics. "The Conspiracy of Catiline" tells the dramatic story of renegade senator Lucius Catiline's attempt to seize power in Rome during the waning days of the republic. "The War of Jugurtha" recounts the rise and ultimate destruction of the headstrong Numidian king Jugurtha, who waged an insurgent war against Rome from 112 to 106 B.C. And as the fates of men play themselves out on the stage of history, strength of character and the will of Fortune will be the ultimate arbiters of human destiny.
