Macbeth

Author: Alasdair D. F. Macrae
Publisher: Pearson Education
ISBN: 1447913140
Release Date: 2012
Genre: A-level examinations

From Thomas Jefferson to John Rawls, justice has been at the center of America's self-image and national creed. At the same time, for many of its peoples-from African slaves and European immigrants to women and the poor-the American experience has been defined by injustice: oppression, disenfranchisement, violence, and prejudice. In Identity and the Failure of America, "John Michael explores the contradictions between a mythic national identity promising justice to all and the realities of a divided, hierarchical, and frequently iniquitous history and social order. Through a series of insightful readings, Michael analyzes such cultural moments as the epic dramatization of the tension between individual ambition and communal complicity in Moby-Dick, "attempts to effect social change through sympathy in the novels of Lydia Marie Child and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson's antislavery activism and Frederick Douglass's long fight for racial equity, and the divisive figures of John Brown and Nat Turner in American letters and memory. Focusing on exemplary instances when the nature of the United States as an essentially conflicted nation turned to force, Michael ultimately posits the development of a more cosmopolitan American identity, one that is more fully and justly imagined in response to the nation's ethical failings at home and abroad. John Michael is professor of English and of visual and cultural studies at the University of Rochester. He is the author of Anxious Intellects: Academic Professionals, Public Intellectuals, and Enlightenment Values and Emerson "and Skepticism: The Cipher of the World."

Shakespeares ruhelose Welt

Author: Neil MacGregor
Publisher: C.H.Beck
ISBN: 9783406652882
Release Date: 2013-11-07
Genre: History

Während Shakespeare unvergängliche Werke wie «Romeo und Julia», «Hamlet» oder «Othello» schrieb, ging die Welt durch eine Epoche tiefgreifender Veränderungen. Seit der Entdeckung Amerikas hatten sich die Horizonte Europas dramatisch erweitert, die Reformation spaltete die Christenheit, ein ganzes Weltbild geriet ins Wanken. Neil MacGregor führt uns mitten hinein in diese aufregende Zeit – und mitten hinein in die Stücke William Shakespeares. Ob er uns das Schwert eines Edelmanns oder die Wollmütze eines Handwerksburschen, einen Glaskelch aus Venedig oder Münzen aus Marrakesch vorstellt – immer weiß Neil MacGregor in den zwanzig Kapiteln dieses Buches eines der Themen zu illuminieren, die Shakespeares Zeitalter prägten: die Globalisierung, die Glaubenskämpfe, die Pest, der Islam, die Magie – und uns zugleich vertraut zu machen mit einem der aufregendsten Dichter der Weltliteratur. Das Resultat ist ein hinreißend lebendiges, glänzend geschriebenes und in vielem überraschendes Portrait der gefährlich aufgewühlten Welt von William Shakespeare.
