William Shakespeare's Henry IV by William Shakespeare( Recording )

Rebellion still simmers in England and King Henry's health is failing. Prince Hal has proved his courage but the king still fears that his son's pleasure-loving nature will bring the realm to ruin. Meanwhile Falstaff and his ribald companions waste the nights in revelry, anticipating the moment when Hal will ascend the throne
Silvae by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 AD. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, offers thanks, admires a monument or artistic object, and describes a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct pictorial quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome. Statius was raised in the Greek cultural milieu of the Bay of Naples, and his Greek literary education lends a sophisticated veneer to his ornamental verse. The role of the emperor and the imperial circle in determining taste is also readily apparent: the figure of the emperor Domitian permeates these poems."--Publisher description
William Shakespeare's The taming of the shrew by William Shakespeare( Recording )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The marriage of two strong-minded people provides the spark for a comic confrontation between the sexes: The "shrew," Kate, is so ill-tempered she seems unlikely to find a husband. Her father refuses to let her younger sister marry until Kate is off his hands. Petruchio appears, marries Kate, and "tames" her so well that he wins a bet with two other men on a test of their wives' obedience
