„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.

'Oh, that I were a man, or that I had power To execute my apprehended wishes, I would whip some with scorpions.' Seen as anarchic and amoral in their time, these four tragedies of murder and politics continue to resonate with their dark, horrific vision of humanity. Featuring strangulations, poisonings, stabbings and incest, the plays explore violence, transgression and destructive sexual jealousy, while also satirising the dangerous times in which they were written. This new edition illuminates Webster's and Ford's plays further by putting them in context with one another, highlighting the complexity of their morally ambiguous female protagonists. Edited with an introduction by Jane Kingsley-Smith
