Book Summary:

Abandoned by his cavalier father at a young age, William de Veres grew up knowing precious little happiness. But William has put the past firmly behind him and as a military hero and noted rake, he rises fast in the ranks of the hedonistic Restoration court. Though not before he is forced to seek shelter from a charming young Puritan woman… The civil wars have cost the once-high-spirited Elizabeth Walters her best friend and her father, leaving her unprotected and alone. She flees an unwanted marriage, seeking safe haven, but what she finds is something she never expected. When her kindness and her beauty bring her to the attention of William, and then the king, she will have a choice to make. After all, can a notorious libertine really be capable of love?

Book Summary:

Thomas Shadwell, The Libertine * George Etherege, The Man of Mode * Thomas Durfey, A Fond Husband * Thomas Otway, Friendship in Fashion These four plays in the Oxford English Drama series capture the range of responses to the fashionable and daring libertine movement in the second half of the seventeenth century. A Fond Husband and Friendship in Fashion are lesser-known comic gems of the Restoration stage; The Man of Mode is Etherege's masterpiece, and The Libertine is Shadwell's experimental and dark version of the Don Juan story. The texts are freshly edited using modern spelling. There is a critical introduction, wide-ranging annotation, and an informative bibliography which together illuminate the plays' cultural context and theatrical potential for reader and performer alike. 'The series should shape the canon in a number of significant areas. A splendid and imaginative project.' Professor Anne Barton, Cambridge University

Book Summary:

Italian novelist, poet, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini was brutally killed in Rome in 1975, a macabre end to a career that often explored humanity’s capacity for violence and cruelty. Along with the mystery of his murderer’s identity, Pasolini left behind a controversial but acclaimed oeuvre as well as a final quartet of beguiling projects that signaled a radical change in his aesthetics and view of reality. The Resurrection of the Body is an original and compelling interpretation of these final works: the screenplay Saint Paul, the scenario for Porn-Theo-Colossal, the immense and unfinished novel Petrolio, and his notorious final film, Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom, a disturbing adaptation of the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Together these works, Armando Maggi contends, reveal Pasolini’s obsession with sodomy and its role within his apocalyptic view of Western society. One of the first studies to explore the ramifications of Pasolini’s homosexuality, The Resurrection of the Body also breaks new ground by putting his work into fruitful conversation with an array of other thinkers such as Freud, Strindberg, Swift, Henri Michaux, and Norman O. Brown.

Book Summary:

The basic subject of bestselling antebellum "woman's fiction" written by women about women for women was, according to G. M. Goshgarian, sex--more particularly, incest. Goshgarian takes a close and penetrating look at the facts of life in the United States of the 1850s and offers "improper" readings of five bestselling works of women's fiction, now largely forgotten. In Goshgarian's view, the typical narrative of such domestic novels recounts the forging of a "true woman," detailing the trials and tribulations which--in one of the age's favorite metaphors--bring an excessively "passionate" adolescent heroine to "kiss the Father's chastening rod." Goshgarian maintains that, although their authors presented woman as pure and sexless, the pivot of these narratives was woman's, especially the moral mother's, natural incestuousness. Examining ideas about masturbation, female sexuality, the family, and post-Calvinist religion that shaped the readership of popular woman's fiction, To Kiss the Chastening Rod shows that passionlessness was the privileged theme of a pervasive discourse which sought to exert social control through the rigorous repression, minute supervision, and covert cultivation of sexuality. Through close readings of Maria Susanna Cummins's The Lamplighter, Mary Jane Holmes's Lena Rivers, Caroline Lee Hentz's Ernest Linwood, Augusta Jane Evans's Beulah, and Susan Warner's The Wide, Wide World, it demonstrates how woman's fiction simultaneously perpetuated and subverted the image of the passionless true woman. To Kiss the Chastening Rod will be read and vigorously debated by Americanists and Victorianists, literary theorists, and students of gender studies, popular culture, and the relationship between psychoanalysis and literature.

Book Summary:

Irresistibly charming or shamelessly deceitful, remarkably persuasive or uselessly verbose, everything one loves to hate -- or hates to love -- about "French lovers" and their self-styled reputation can be traced to eighteenth-century libertine novels. Obsessed with strategies of seduction, endlessly speculating about the motives and goals of lovers, the idle aristocrats who populate these novels are exclusively preoccupied with their erotic lives. Deprived of other battlefields in which to fulfill their thirst for glory, libertine noblemen seek to conquer the women of their class without falling into the trap of love, while their female prey attempt to enjoy the pleasures of love without sacrificing their honor. Yet, in spite of the licentious mores of the declining Old Regime, men and women are still expected to pay lip service to an austere code of morals. Asked to constantly denounce their own practices, they find that their erotic war games are thus governed by a double constraint: whatever they feel or intend, the heroes of libertine literature can neither say what they mean nor mean what they say. The Libertine Reader includes all the varieties of libertine strategies: from the successful cunning of Mme de T- in Denon's No Tomorrow to the ill-fated genius of Mme Merteuil in Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons; from the laborious sentimental education of Meilcour in Crébillon fils's Wayward Head and Heart to the hazardous master plan of the French ambassador in Prévost's The Story of a Modern Greek Woman. The discrepancies between the characters' words and their true intentions -- the libertine double entendre -- are exposed through the speaking vaginas in Diderot's Indiscreet Jewels and the wandering soul of Amanzei in Crébillon fils's Sofa, while the contrasts between natural and civilized -- or degenerate -- erotics are the subjects of both Diderot's Supplement to Bougainville's Voyage and Laclos's On the Education of Women. Finally, Sade's Florville and Courval shows that destiny itself is on the side of libertinism.

Book Summary:

The arrival of the James Bond film series merited little more than an inch of copy in the trade press of 1961, but its success since the 1962 release of Dr. No has been phenomenal, spawning nineteen more titles and collecting millions of fans along the way during Bond's thirty-five years of escapades. This insightful book brings together everything a Bond fan would want to know about the Bond classics, covering Dr. No, From Russia with Love, and Goldfinger to License to Kill, Goldeneye, and Tomorrow Never Dies -- scheduled to be released in the fall of 1997 -- and all those in between. In this detailed new history of Bond on screen, the authors have chosen ten key elements to rate each film, and each element -- Teaser, Titles, Bonkers Plot, Locations, Gadgets, Girls, Villains, Fights, Chases, Explosions, Dialogue and Double Entendres, Bond -- is given a mark from one to ten to reflect its success as a James Bond film. They also provide Bond buffs with behind-the-scenes gossip and rare information on unofficial Bond spin-offs, such as "OK Connery" and the various Bond-influenced TV series and films, and take into account all of 007's other film appearances, opening with a sideways look at Ian Fleming's original conception of Bond and following the trail of Bond on and off the screen through his portrayers: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and current star Pierce Brosnan -- the Bond of the '90s. With complete cast and credit information for each film, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is the ultimate book for all things Bond.
