The myth of Rome in Shakespeare and his contemporaries by Warren L Chernaik( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Cleopatra expresses a desire to die 'after the high Roman fashion', acting in accordance with 'what's brave, what's noble', Shakespeare is suggesting that there are certain values that are characteristically Roman. The use of the terms 'Rome' and 'Roman' in Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, or Jonson's Sejanus often carry the implication that most people fail to live up to this ideal of conduct, that very few Romans are worthy of the name. Chernaik demonstrates how, in these plays, Roman values are held up to critical scrutiny. The plays of Shakespeare, Jonson, Massinger and Chapman often present a much darker image of Rome, as exemplifying barbarism rather than civility. Through a comparative analysis of the Roman plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, and including detailed discussion of the classical historians Livy, Tacitus and Plutarch, this study examines the uses of Roman history - 'the myth of Rome' - in Shakespeare's age"--

Marvell and liberty by Warren L Chernaik( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marvell and Liberty is a collection of original essays by leading international and interdisciplinary scholars which, uniquely, give equal attention to the full range of Marvell's writings--lyrics, occasional verse, satires and prose tracts--both in their original context and in terms of their reception. This volume thus constitutes a major reassessment of a figure who lived much of his life close to the epicenter of the revolutionary upheavals of the seventeenth century

Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, James Joyce, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis and the culture of the little magazine of the period, eleven contributors from six countries demonstrate new developments in the sociology of texts, the practice of literary biography, and textual criticism
The Art of detective fiction by Martin Swales( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors of this volume pay tribute to and seek to account for the astonishing durability of the detective story as a genre. The essays take a variety of theoretical approaches and include detective fiction in languages other than English. Particular attention is paid to the "Golden Age" of English detective story writing and to the hard-boiled American version of the genre.--From publisher's description
Milton and the burden of freedom by Warren L Chernaik( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his writings, Milton, deeply engaged in political and theological controversy, sought to clear a space for human freedom in a world ruled by an omniscient and omnipotent deity. Paradise Lost and Samson Agonistes, as well as other works by Milton in verse and prose, explore the problematical aspects of a universe ruled by an Old Testament God of wrath, demanding obedience, who allows his creatures the freedom to be 'authors' of their own fate. Milton and the Burden of Freedom examines the contradictions inherent in Milton's religious, political, and ethical beliefs as expressed in his poems, prose writings, and the treatise De Doctrina Christiana. Milton, whose writings are rooted in the Reformed tradition while challenging Calvinist orthodoxy, is both radical and conservative. In this book, Warren Chernaik traces the evolution of Milton's attitude towards freedom, servitude and virtue during a century of political upheaval and disappointed hopes"--

Shakespeare at Work: Four Kings and Two Shrews( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Abstract in English: This article examines three instances of the early Shakespeare at work on material provided by another dramatist, in plays in the repertory of the Queen's Men or Pembroke's Men: The Troublesome Reign of King John, King Leir and The Taming of a Shrew. In writing King John and King Lear for the Chamberlain's Men, Shakespeare takes as his starting point a play by someone else, transforming the material. In all three cases the differences can be characterised as a move from relative simplicity to relative complexity, allowing for greater latitude in interpretation - and in productions of The Shrew, such latitude is encouraged by the instability of the Folio text. Résumé en français: Cet article aborde trois exemples de la première époque de Shakespeare, où il retravaille du matériau provenant de pièces du répertoire des Queen's Men ou des Pembroke's Men, dont deux au moins sont écrites par un autre dramaturge: The Troublesome Reign of King John, de George Peele, King Leir (dont l'auteur a pu être Thomas Kyd), et The Taming of a Shrew . L'identité du ou des auteurs de Une mégère et La Mégère est incertaine. En écrivant Le Roi Jean et Le Roi Lear pour les Chamberlain's Men, Shakespeare, plutôt que revisiter ses pièces antérieures (comme il l'a fait avec 2 Henri VI et 3 Henri VI), prend comme point de départ des pièces écrites par quelqu'un d'autre, en les transformant. Dans les trois cas, Le Roi Lear, Le Roi John et La Mégère apprivoisée, ce processus fait apparaître une évolution vers une complexité plus grande et un éventail d'interprétation plus large - cette potentialité interprétative étant encouragée dans le cas de La Mégère par l'instabilité du texte publié dans l'in-folio
