The Whirligig of Time

5 Even in the comedies the ''whirligig of time brings in his revenges'' (Twelfth Night, 5.1.364), exploding both the Puritan killjoy Malvolio and, much more mercilessly, the revengeful accumulator of ducats, Shylock.

Zdenek Stribrny, an internationally respected Shakespeare scholar, was Professor of English and American Studies at Charles University, Prague, until the Russian occupation of 1968. He was reinstated after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. This volume, prefaced by a new autobiographical introduction, collects papers on Shakespeare, most of which were written originally in English, from various periods of his eventful career. Their two main themes are the role of Time and the Czech critical and theatrical response to Shakespeare, with special emphasis on the various ways in which, during an era of censorship, productions offered coded political readings of the plays. Zdenek Stribrny is Professor Emeritus of English and American Studies at Charles University, Prague. Lois Potter is Ned B. Allen Professor of English at the University of Delaware.

Nora Percival's third memoir completes a trilogy about a woman's life during three significant spans of her long lifetime. It recaptures the arduous days of World War II, when civilians in America were focused on defending our way of life against the brutal tyranny of Nazism. As she delineates her role in the national emergency, the sympathetic reader follows her vicissitudes and the drastic dislocations suffered by so many women in wartime. The author's challenging job, in a large defense plant producing vital war materiel, broke new ground. In planning this book, Percival turned to her daily reports, still in her files. "Rereading them after more than 65 years," the narrator writes, "those hectic, pressured days that demanded all my stamina, ingenuity, empathy and endurance rose up in my memory." Woven into her chapters, these reports provide a vivid portrait of the trials and triumphs of women's private battles. It was her concern for the unhappily divided state of our present world that impelled Percival to write of a time when Americans were united, all working together to save our country from Hitler's despotic assault.

For over 30 years, first as a QC, then as a judge, and latterly as a visiting professor of law at Oxford, Stephen Sedley has written and lectured about aspects of the law that do not always get the attention they deserve. His first anthology of essays, Ashes and Sparks, was praised in the New York Times by Ian McEwan for its 'exquisite, finely balanced prose, the prickly humour, the knack of artful quotation and an astonishing historical grasp'. 'You could have no interest in the law,' McEwan wrote, 'and read his book for pure intellectual delight.' The present volume contains more recent articles by Stephen Sedley on the law, many of them from the London Review of Books, and lectures given to a variety of audiences. The first part is concerned with law as part of history - Feste's 'whirligig of time'; the second part with law and rights. The third part is a group of biographical and critical pieces on a number of figures from the legal and musical worlds. The final part is more personal, going back to the author's days at the bar, and then forward to some parting reflections.

When Erin, Ohio native Jamie Ellicott returns home as best-selling author James Ivanhoe after a 13-year absence, it’s like the return of the Prodigal Son. His ill and aging father welcomes him with open arms. Ivanhoe’s two brothers, however, are less forgiving. The whole town gets drawn into the family drama when Ivanhoe seeks to march in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade under the banner of an anti-technology group called the Ned Ludd Society. That’s a thumb in the collective eye of his siblings, who own a company that makes microcircuits. As a member of the parade committee, St. Benignus University communications director Jeff Cody has a stake in what soon becomes a heated national debate. But to his genius brother-in-law Sebastian McCabe, the contretemps becomes less important than investigating murder in the Ellicott family. Erin Go Bloody once again demonstrates the skill that caused best-selling novelist Bonnie MacBird to call Dan Andriacco “a master of mystery plotting.”
