"Growing up in the sheltered society of 1920s England, Gudrun and Ursula know little about the ways of love. So when they pursue thrilling, torrid affairs with a notorious playboy and a brooding philanderer, what they discover about their lovers, and themselves, may be more all consuming - and dangerously volatile - than they ever dared imagine"-- Container.

‘A playwright of world stature’—Mario Relich, Wasafiri First staged in 1991, Bravely Fought the Queen created a stir with its disturbingly honest portrayal of the dysfunctional Trivedi family, confirming Dattani's reputation as a playwright at the top of his game. Unfolding at a relentless pace, the play provides an unflinching insight into the urban Indian milieu, throwing light on a wide range of issues—marital friction, sibling rivalry, sexual politics and the lies we often tell ourselves—before racing to a shocking finale. ‘At last we have a playwright who gives sixty million English-speaking Indians an identity’—Alyque Padamsee ‘Powerful and disturbing’—The New York Times

"Whimsy and from the heart, Libby Goodsir's words reflect what is to be human and to be a mother. Madeleine's images perfectly counterpoint Libby's words, adding a thousand new dimensions to the meditation. What a gift " - Chris Gallagher "A collection of 'images and words playing with what it is to be human / they asked to be put together'. Blue Pollen Beautiful is the result of a serendipitous collaboration between mother and daughter. Overruling a daughter's 'decisive and unsentimental' intention to discard earlier artwork, her mother rescues the images and strategically places them among her own gentle, meditative poems. The result is a lovely distillation of women's lived experience, of 'the shuffle of women / making more space'. The poems celebrate the various selves the poet encounters within and without as she explores the 'beauties of change' and traces the flow of life from generation to generation, like 'seagrasses / borne up by each wave'. Blue Pollen Beautiful honours both the flow and the 'anchored / lucid' -mothers and daughters as givers and keepers of story." - Terry Whitebeach
The book Lycoris Radiata is a poetry book. Book filled with emotions and experience. It is a journey of how the feelings and emotions within oneself leave you for the better or worse of you. Happiness, sadness, anger, hatred, and many more within ourselves, which we dare not express, have been expressed for you. Lycoris radiata, or the red spider lily, is a flower that blooms during late summer or autumn, often in response to heavy rainfall. Some legends have it that when you see someone that you might never meet again, these flowers would bloom along the path. Just like that, once the poems are jotted down on paper, they become their own selves, leaving behind the one who wrote them to never be met again.

Shaw wrote the part of Eliza Doolittle - an east-end dona with an apron and three orange and red ostrich feathers - for Mrs Patrick Campbell, with whom he had a passionate but unconsummated affair. From the outset the play was a sensational success, although Shaw, irritated by its popularity at the expense of his artistic intentions, dismissed it as a potboiler. The Pygmalion of legend falls in love with his perfect female statue and persuades Venus to bring her to life so that he can marry her. But Shaw radically reworks Ovid's tale to give it a feminist slant: while Higgins teaches Eliza to speak and act like a duchess, she also asserts her independence, adamantly refusing to be his creation.

1898. Most of Shaw's early plays were either banned by the censor or refused production. With Plays: Pleasant and Unpleasant he sought a reading audience. He also began the practice of writing the challenging, mocking, eloquent prefaces to his plays, which were sometimes longer than the play itself. This volume contains the Unpleasant: Widowers' Houses; The Philanderer; and Mrs. Warren's Profession.
