In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials. Innovative, authoritative and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature has established itself as a leader in the field. The full anthology comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes. For those seeking an even more streamlined anthology than the two-volume Concise Edition, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature is now available in a compact single-volume version. The edition features the same high quality of introductions, annotations, contextual materials, and illustrations found in the full anthology, and it complements an ample offering of canonical works with a vibrant selection of less-canonical pieces. The compact single-volume edition also includes a substantial website component, providing for much greater flexibility. An increasing number of works from the full six-volume anthology (or from its website component) are also being made available in stand-alone Broadview Anthology of British Literature editions that can be bundled with the anthology.

Calvin Carter, grieving widower, avid sailboater, meets Rhonda Slater, cat lover and recent widow. Despite their mutual attraction there are obstacles in their path to love.

The spirit of Calvin's wife Maryanne wants him to find happiness, as she tells him in a telephone call from the beyond. George on the other hand is determined to destroy the love match any way he can. If he can't have Rhonda then neither can anyone else, and he's ready to do whatever he can to rock the boat - literally as well as figuratively. Can Maryanne prevent George from ruining a new happily-ever-after relationship?

Numbering more than 150, Shakespeare's sonnets have contributed significantly to discussions of the elusive character of the Bard. While most of the poems are addressed to a young man, others invoke the renowned Dark Lady. Each sonnet is interpreted, focusing on language particular to the poem, as well as on how the sonnet form furthers meaning. In addition, Shakespeare's major themes of love and beauty; mutability; and time and immortality are explored.

Living Up the Road from Laura Ingalls

Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder lived in the Missouri Ozarks for over a half century. They loved the scenery, the mild climate, their little Rocky Ridge Farm, the people – They loved their life in the Ozarks. So what’s it like to live a life like that, just up the road from Laura's place? Dan L. White and family have done that, for over a quarter century. During that time, they wrote a number of books about Laura and her books and her life. Living Up the Road from Laura Ingalls – With Excerpts from Seven Books about Her is a sampler of some of those books, along with the story of their personal life in the Ozarks. They found out that living up the way from Laura's place led to much the same way of life. As she so well stated: “I believe we would be happier to have a personal revolution in our individual lives and go back to simpler living and more direct thinking. It is the simple things of life that make living worthwhile, the sweet fundamental things such as love and duty, work and rest and living close to nature.”

Phaedrus

THE Phaedrus is closely connected with the Symposium, and may be regarded either as introducing or following it. The two Dialogues together contain the whole philosophy of Plato on the nature of love, which in the Republic and in the later writings of Plato is only introduced playfully or as a figure of speech. But in the Phaedrus and Symposium love and philosophy join hands, and one is an aspect of the other. The spiritual and emotional part is elevated into the ideal, to which in the Symposium mankind are described as looking forward, and which in the Phaedrus, as well as in the Phaedo, they are seeking to recover from a former state of existence. Whether the chief subject of the Dialogue is love or rhetoric, or the union of the two, or the relation of philosophy to love and to art in general, and to the human soul, will be hereafter considered.

The Time Is Out of Joint presents an examination of Shakespeare's distinctly modern confrontation with time and temporality, the difference between the truth of the fact, that of theory, and that of interpretation and revelatory truth, and finds that Shakespeare anticipated post-metaphysical philosophy and its central concerns at a time when modern metaphysics had not yet reached it speak.

The Ironic Filmmaking of Stephen Frears

Stephen Frears has a career approaching over half-a-century, directing films of astonishing variety, beauty, and daring, and yet many often have trouble remembering his name. The Ironic Filmmaking of Stephen Frears celebrates this great filmmaker, beginning with a short biography of Frears, general observations on unifying themes and styles in his oeuvre, and the characterization of his manner of directing. By focusing on 10 key films, Lesley Brill finds coherence in Frears' characteristic irony and in his concentration on many kinds of love. In movies such as My Beautiful Laundrette, Dangerous Liaisons, High Fidelity, The Queen, Philomena, and many others, Frears portrays widely varied situations and characters with a combination of insight, skepticism, and sympathy. He has the passionate, unjudgmental focus of an artist who stands simultaneously at a distance from his subjects and within their worlds. Through Frears' work is widely admired, Brill argues that he has attracted little scholarly writing because of a combination of the diffidence of his self-presentation and the difficulty of explicating the complex ideas and characters of his films. The Ironic Filmmaking of Stephen Frears is meant to inspire others to further examine his films individually and his career as a whole.

Making Game

Making Game contributes significantly to the genre of the meditative essay in its treatment of the author's relations to the natural world. Atkinson reflects on the philosophical and ethical nature of hunting wild game, finding in that activity existential clues that connect him first to his family of origin and then more broadly to the tradition at large. Always the work of 'making game' strives to understand the self. Although non-technical, the writing is informed by the author's significant background of scholarly engagement with the phenomenological tradition in modern philosophy and classical Greek literature. This book will appeal to readers of literature with a theoretical bent, as well as those interested in questions of autobiography and identity, especially in relation to issues of family and personal identity.
