„Wollen Sie eine richtig gute Ghost Story lesen? Dieser Roman beginnt ganz harmlos und packt einen dann umso heftiger.“ Stephen King. Tod und Teufel. Von seinem Vater wird Andrew auf ein englisches Internat geschickt, weil er zu Hause in den USA in Drogenprobleme verstrickt war. Aber der Ärger beginnt für ihn erst richtig, kaum dass er die Harrow School betreten hat. Er beobachtet, wie ein Schüler auf seltsame Weise stirbt, und wird sofort verdächtigt, mit diesem Tod etwas zu tun zu haben. Außerdem sieht er Lord Byron ähnlich, dem berühmtesten Schüler des Internats. Deshalb soll Andrew auch in einem Stück über den Dichter die Hauptrolle spielen. Nach und nach wird er in das Leben des Dichters hineingezogen – und erkennt, dass er ein tödliches Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit ans Licht bringen muss.

The White Devil gives us a compellingly dangerous and fascinating woman who consents to the murder of her ineffectual husband. Her defence against the charge of adultery transforms a lurid tale of crime into high tragedy. Webster's play is a vivid study of sexual and political intrigue, written in incomparable verse and prose. John Russell Brown's new introduction uses the latest developments in the study of Jacobean England and in theatre criticism. Detailed notes and glosses make this an ideal teaching text and a 'must' for any theatre goer.

From Ovid’s Lycaon to Professor Lupin, from Teen Wolf to An American Werewolf in Paris, the lycanthrope, or werewolf, comes to us frequently on the page and the silver screen. These interpretations often display lycanthropy as a curse, with the afflicted person becoming an uncontrollable, feral beast during every full moon. But this is just one version of the werewolf—its origins can be traced back thousands of years to early prehistory, and everything from Iron Age bog bodies and Roman gods to people such as Joan of Arc, Adolf Hitler, and Sigmund Freud feature in its story. Exploring the role of this odd assortment of ideas and people in the myth, The White Devil tracks the development of the werewolf from its birth to the present day, seeking to understand why the wolf curse continues to hold a firm grip on the modern imagination. Combining early death and burial rites, mythology, folklore, archaeological evidence, and local superstitions, Matthew Beresford explains that the werewolf has long been present in the beliefs and mythology of the many cultures of Europe. He examines prehistoric wolf cults, the use of the wolf as a symbol of ancient Rome, medieval werewolf executions, and the eradication of wolves by authorities in England during the Anglo-Saxon period. He also surveys werewolf trials, medical explanations, and alleged sightings, as well as the instances in which lycanthropes appear in literature and film. With sixty illustrations of these often terrifying—but sometimes noble—beasts, The White Deviloffers a new understanding of the survival of the werewolf in European culture.

Then Andrew discovers some old letters hidden in a bricked-up basement, which hint at a secret history buried in the school's past.

Excerpt from The White Devil As a student of Webster, I have been most fortunate. The earliest and greatest of my debts is to Professor F. P. Wilson, who super vised my first steps and provided a model of imaginative scholar ship; to acknowledge my indebtedness to him is an occasion for both thankfulness and humility. In succeeding years my colleagues, students, and friends at stratford-upon-avon and Birmingham have helped me in many ways, and from elsewhere Mr John Crow, Dr George Hunter, and Professor Fredson Bowers have most kindly come to my assistance. I am also indebted to Keble Plays, the dramatic society of my Oxford college, for the opportunity of producing The White Devil 5 I am most grateful to everyone who took part in that production.
