Othello by William Shakespeare( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Second in Shakespeare's great sequence of tragedies. If differs markedly from the others in its essentially domestic milieu--the story unfolds with suffocatingly close intensity, unrelieved by the religious or metaphysical context we expect to find. Although a swift-paced play, the emotion-filled action is not lacking. From love and passion, nobility and purity, to deception, tragedy and murder, this widely studied play is one of the best sellers of the Shakespearean canon."--Container

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1666, [Rene] Descartes' bones have been fought over, stolen, and sold--by adherents to both religious and scientific doctrine. But why?

With that seemingly innocuous phrase, Descartes presented skepticism to the world--and profoundly changed the course of humankind."--Container

Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporters Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta bring us the first comprehensive portrait of the most fascinating and controversial woman in American politics. Drawing upon documents and sources that no other reporters have ever accessed, Gerth and Van Natta will forever change the way you think about Hillary"--Publisher's web site
