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?

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

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.

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.
