Conversations With Spirits

Conversations With Spirits

December, 1917. The Great War is rampaging through Europe – yet Trelawney Hart has scarcely noticed. The arch-sceptic and former child prodigy has lost his way and now ekes out a lonely existence, taking his only comfort from the bottle. This dissolute lifestyle is interrupted, however, when spiritualist crusader and celebrated author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle arrives at the door of his London club and requests his help in investigating a man he believes to be a psychic medium of unparalleled gift. Driven on by his anticipation of exposing the psychic as a fraud, Hart accepts. But it is not long before he finds himself helpless amidst a series of seemingly inexplicable events – and he is forced to consider whether there may be much more to life than he had ever thought possible. Nominated for the Edinburgh Book Festival's 2014 First Book Award.

Public And Private Man In Shakespeare

Public And Private Man In Shakespeare

The potential duality of human character and its capacity for dissembling was a source of fascination to the Elizabethan dramatists. Where many of them used the Machiavellian picture to draw one fair-faced scheming villain after another, Shakespeare absorbed more deeply the problem of the tensions between the public and private face of man. Originally published in 1983, this book examines the ways in which this psychological insight is developed and modified as a source of dramatic power throughout Shakespeare’s career. In the great sequence of history plays he examines the conflicting tensions of kingship and humanity, and the destructive potential of this dilemma is exploited to the full in the ‘problem plays’. In the last plays power and virtue seem altogether divorced: Prospero can retire to an old age at peace only at the abdication of all his power. This theme is central to the art of many dramatists, but in the context of Renaissance political philosophy it takes on an added resonance for Shakespeare.

That Man Shakespeare

That Man Shakespeare

This second book in the Icons of Modern Culture series traces the growth of Shakespeare's reputation after his death and the demand that arose for a satisfactory image of the writer responsible for so much intense and varied pleasure. It shows how legend was used to compensate for the lack of reliable information about Shakespeare's life, and the different ways in which succeeding generations dealt with such apparent difficulties as, for instance, the warmth of his addresses to a man in the Sonnets or his supposed ill-treatment of his wife in his will. 'Who was William Shakespeare?' is a question which has not only been answered differently in different generations but also in different ways by scholars, biographers, novelists, dramatists and poets. This lack of consensus has neither inhibited the belief that 'Shakespeare' is universally known, nor lessened the commercial and publicity value of his image: a paradox which this book amply illustrates.
