Gerard Manley Hopkins: A Critical Symposium
The larger pan of this classic symposium on the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins was originally assembled as a special number of The Kenyon Review to celebrate in 1944 the centenary of the poet's birth, and then published in the New Directions "Makers of Modern Literature" series. Austin Warren contributes a biographical sketch and a study of Hopkins's debt to traditional verse forms. Marshall McLuhan explores the ideas behind the poet's symbols and images. Harold Whitehall analyzes his famous "sprung rhythm," Josephine Miles the characteristics of his idiom. Robert Lowell emphasizes his religious nature, Arthur Mizener his Victorian heritage. And F.R. Leavis discusses the metaphysical character of his poems....
In this tenth collection, Stephen Dunn turns his "wise, well-practiced eye" (Library Journal) on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies. Not content merely to observe the world, Dunn's stance is always dual, complicit. And as he navigates through each paradox of his moral and aesthetic and erotic selves, this poet, described by Sydney Lea as one "who remains open to contradictions," travels to a place of exact and complicated vision....

The Invention of Law in the West
Law is a specific form of social regulation distinct from religion, ethics, and even politics, and endowed with a strong and autonomous rationality. Its invention, a crucial aspect of Western history, took place in ancient Rome. Aldo Schiavone, a world-renowned classicist, reconstructs this development with clear-eyed passion, following its course over the centuries, setting out from the earliest origins and moving up to the threshold of Late Antiquity.
The invention of Western law occurred against the backdrop of the Roman Empire's gradual consolidation?an age of unprecedented accumulation of power which transformed an archaic predisposition to ritual into an unrivaled technology for the control of human dealings. Schiavone offers us a closely reasoned interpretation that returns us to the primal origins of Western legal machinery and the discourse that was constructed around it?formalism, the pretense of neutrality, the relationship with political power. This is a landmark work of scholarship whose influence will be felt by classicists, historians, and legal scholars for decades.
Strangers on a Train
"In this mesmerizing novel... not to be recommended for the weak-minded and impressionable" (Washington Post), we encounter Guy Haines, a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, and Charles Anthony Bruno, a conniving psychopath who manipulates a chance encounter with Guy into a sadistic plot to swap murders. "Some people are better off dead," says Bruno, "like your wife and my father, for instance." As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy becomes trapped in Patricia Highsmith's perilous world, where under the right circumstances anyone is capable of murder. Still her most iconic novel, Strangers on a Train elicits "the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings" (Time) and the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life....
Setting the Desert on Fire: T. E. Lawrence and Britain's Secret War in Arabia, 1916-1918
“Barr turns history into a drama, with bright writing and a fascinating cast of characters.” ?Mary Foster, Associated Press
T. E. Lawrence’s classic Seven Pillars of Wisdom made the Arab revolt a legend and helped turn him into the mythical “Lawrence of Arabia.” Setting the Desert on Fire is both a masterly account of the intrigue behind the revolt and its startling consequences for the present-day Middle East and a portrait of Lawrence that brings fresh insight to the true nature of the master mythmaker.31 photos; 3 maps...
