Shakespeare ist wohl der bekannteste Dramatiker aller Zeiten, doch über sein Leben wissen wir so gut wie nichts. Kein Brief blieb von ihm erhalten, wir kennen nur ein paar dürre Lebensdaten, vereinzelte Schriftsätze aus Prozessen, die er betrieb – und ein überaus nüchternes Testament, in dem er seiner Frau sein zweitbestes Bett vermacht. In seiner hochgelobten Biographie versucht Stephen Greenblatt mit detektivischem Scharfsinn, die Lücken dieser Lebensgeschichte zu füllen und hinter das Geheimnis zu kommen, wie aus einem talentierten Jungen aus einer englischen Kleinstadt der größte Dramatiker aller Zeiten werden konnte, kurz: wie Shakespeare zu Shakespeare wurde.

Wiederentdeckung eines US-amerikanischen Kultautors Hollywood: nirgends gedeihen Illusionen prächtiger, nirgends werden sie rascher entsorgt. Hauptsache, die Show geht weiter. Dieser Roman ist eine herrlich respektlose Nahaufnahme der Traumfabrik, eine filmreife Parodie auf Starkult und kollektiven Selbstbetrug. Keiner hat das wahre Hollywood mit seinen Widersprüchen, Abgründen und Hell-Dunkel-Kontrasten schärfer erfasst als Nathanael West. In seiner Satire widmet er sich den Schattenseiten einer durch und durch künstlichen Welt, in der die Verlierer in der Überzahl sind: die ewigen Statisten, Sternchen, Schmalspurdiven und Reservehelden. Je zweifelhafter deren Aussicht auf das große Los, desto verbissener hängen sie ihren Illusionen nach – und überbieten sich in einer Parade der Peinlichkeiten und Selbstentblößungen. Einmal mehr besticht Nathanael West hier mit der hohen Kunst der Zuspitzung. Schonungslos bis zum Zynismus legt er das Urkomische im Tragischen frei und entlarvt seine Figuren als hoffnungslose Träumer, ohne sie dabei zu diffamieren. Wunsch und Wirklichkeit mögen noch so weit auseinanderklaffen, menschliche Sehnsüchte sind einfach nicht totzukriegen. So ist dieses Buch eine Demaskierung des neuzeitlichen Wahns, um jeden Preis ein Star werden zu müssen, und ein tiefer Seufzer angesichts evidenter Aussichtslosigkeit. Neuübersetzung

The past century's culture wars that Britain has been consumed by, but that few North Americans seem aware of, have resulted in revised notions of Britishness and British literature. Yet literary anthologies remain anchored to an archaic Anglo-English interpretation of British literature. Conflicts have been played out over specific national vs. British identity (some residents prefer to describe themselves as being from Scotland, England, Wales, or Northern Ireland instead of Britain), in debates over immigration, race, ethnicity, class, and gender, and in arguments over British literature. These debates are strikingly detailed in such chapters as: "The Difficulty Defining 'Black British'," "British Jewish Writers" and "Xenophobia and the Booker Prize." Connections are also drawn between civil rights movements in the U.S. and UK. This generalist cultural study is a lively read and a fascinating glimpse into Britain's changing identity as reflected in 20th and 21st century British literature.

Drawing on Arabic, English, French, Irish, Latin and Spanish sources, the essays share a focus on the body's productive capacity - whether expressed through the flesh's materiality, or through its role in performing meaning. The collection is divided into four clusters. 'Foundations' traces the use of physical remnants of the body in the form of relics or memorial monuments that replicate the form of the body as foundational in communal structures; 'Performing the Body' focuses on the ways in which the individual body functions as the medium through which the social body is maintained; 'Bodily Rhetoric' explores the poetic linkage of body and meaning; and 'Material Bodies' engages with the processes of corporeal being, ranging from the energetic flow of humoural liquids to the decay of the flesh. Together, the essays provide new perspectives on the centrality of the medieval body and underscore the vitality of this rich field of study.
