Sparkling with the witty dialogue between Beatrice and Benedicts, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare´s most enjoyable and theatrically successful comedies. This edition offers a newly edited text and an exceptionally helpful and critically aware introduction. Paying particular attention to analysis of the play´s minor characters, Sheldon P Zitner discusses Shakespeare´s transformation of his source material. He rethinks the attitudes to gender relations that underlie the comedy and determine its view of marriage. Allowing for the play´s openness to reinterpretation by successive generations of readers and peformers, Zitner provides a socially analytic stage history, advancing new views for the actor as much as for the critic. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World´s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford´s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don´t need capes, just the right attitude. When he was a kid, Quentin loved Superman. Ironic, really. Quentin didn´t need kryptonite to reveal his weakness - born with a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, his bones broke all on their own. When Quentin was seven, Mike Willesee made a documentary about him. Australians fell in love with his wit and never-say-die attitude. Over the years he grew up before our eyes. But there was a dark side to his life. The true story was never told...until now. A story of abandonment, drug addiction, dark days and thoughts of suicide. Battling through it all, Quentin´s resilience is inspiring. Quentin is now determined to live life the best he can. Just turned 41, he is a filmmaker, a stand-up comedian, a radio host, an actor and a film critic; he´s hung out with Angelina, accidentally ripped Jennifer Lopez´s dress, talked sex with Jean-Claude Van Damme, appeared in Mad Max and interviewed Julia Gillard, all the while showing that living in a wheelchair doesn´t mean staying still. This is an unforgettable, brutally honest, at times heartbreaking memoir narrated to you by Quentin himself. Please note that due to the presence of Quentin´s breathing apparatus, there is some background noise throughout this recording. However, no one else could tell his story quite like Quentin can. 1.
