Für sein eher als langes Gedicht denn als Bühnenstück gedachtes Drama griff Lord Byron (1788–1824) auf ein historisches Ereignis zurück: Unter dem Dogen Francesco Foscari erlebte Venedig seine höchste Machtentfaltung, geriet jedoch in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten. Nach Auseinandersetzung um Foscaris Sohn Jacopo, der wegen Hochverrats in Haft war und dort starb, wurde der Doge am 21. Oktober 1457 vom Rat der Stadt des Amtes enthoben und starb kurz darauf. Giuseppe Verdi diente das Drama als Vorlage für seine 1844 aufgeführte Oper »I due Foscari«.

The word "romantic" has so many varied meanings that C. S. Lewis quipped it should be deleted from our vocabulary. Yet, from the perspective of English literature, romantic is associated, first and foremost, with the poetry of Romanticism, the movement that accentuated the aesthetic value of emotion, human experience, and the majesty of nature. In this volume the finest works of the first generation of Romantic Poets Blake, Wordsworth, and Coleridge are assembled in an accessible and yet scholarly manner, together with a selection of contemporary criticism by tradition-oriented experts, in order to introduce these poets to a new generation of readers."

In Opening Doors to Famous Poetry and Prose, Bob Cox introduced teachers to engaging strategies which use literary heritage texts as the stimulus for excellent learning. This new companion book, Opening Doors to Quality Writing, for ages 10 to 13, puts the focus on pupils producing quality writing – developing their literacy skills and a love of reading in the process. In the course of his educational consultancy work, Bob has seen many teachers successfully use the scope and depth which literature can offer to inspire high standards, mastery learning and, above all, a love of language in its many forms. Schools using the ‘opening doors’ strategies told Bob they led to: more teacher empowerment and confidence; more knowledge building for pupils and teachers; a growing confidence with literature, including poetry; planning from the top becoming a norm; planning for mastery learning becoming a norm; improved comprehension skills; improved quality writing and associated excitement. They also asked Bob for further examples of inspiring, quality texts, and more ways in which all abilities can access them. Bob was only too happy to oblige. These 15 units of work cover poetry and prose: each unit provides exciting stimulus material, creative ideas for writing projects, and differentiation and support strategies, meaning all pupils can achieve the quality writing objectives. All the units should help teachers facilitate understanding of the challenging texts and maximise the huge potential for quality writing. Discover a multitude of ready-to-use ideas, inspired by classic literature and great writers’ works, along with plenty of new strategies and advice. Units include: Part 1: Opening doors to prose 1. Night Encounter – The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins 2. Spooky Scientists! – The Phantom Coach by Amelia B. Edwards 3. The Strongest Looking Brute in Alaska – That Spot by Jack London 4. Mr Knickerbocker’s Notes – Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving 5. The Portrait of Doom – Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy 6.

Our world today is not only a world in crisis but also a world in profound movement, with increasingly large numbers of people joining or forming movements: local, national, transnational, and global. The dazzling diversity of ideas and experiences recorded in this collection capture something of the fluidity within campaigns for a more equitable planet. This book, taking internationalism seriously without tired dogmas, provides a bracing window into some of the central ideas to have emerged from within grassroots struggles from 2006 to 2010. The essays here cross borders to look at the politics of caste, class, gender, religion, and indigeneity, and move from the local to the global. Contributors include Taiaiake Alfred, Tariq Ali, Daniel Bensaïd, Hee-Yeon Cho, Ashok Choudhary, Lee Cormie, Jeff Corntassel, Laurence Cox, Guillermo Delgado-P, Andre Drainville, David Featherstone, Christopher Gunderson, Emilie Hayes, François Houtart, Fouad Kalouche, Alex Khasnabish, Xochitl Leyva Solano, Roma Malik, David McNally, Roel Meijer, Eric Mielants, Peter North, Shailja Patel, Emir Sader, Andrea Smith, Anand Teltumbde, James Toth, Virginia Vargas, and Peter Waterman.

Mit seinem 1821 uraufgeführten Historiendrama zielte Lord Byron (1788-1824) auf die Machtarroganz und Tyrannei des von ihm verachteten Adels. Vorlage für die Tragödie ist ein historisches Ereignis aus dem Jahr 1335, als sich der venezianische Doge Marino Falieri aus Empörung über das Verhalten der städtischen Patrizier mit Verschwörern zusammentat, die die Adelsherrschaft beenden wollten. Neben dem eigentlichen Stück enthält der Band ein erklärendes Vorwort sowie einen umfangreichen Anhang, in dem Byron seine Absichten und historischen Quellen darlegt.

Lilian Aldewinkle, eine reiche Dame aus London, hat ein Schloß in Italien erworben, aus dem sie um jeden Preis einen Treffpunkt der Musen machen will. Deshalb lädt sie alle dorthin ein, die ihrer Meinung nach künstlerische Genalität besitzen: ihren ehemaligen Liebhaber Tom Cardan, den Arbeiterführer Mr. Falx oder den vom gesellschaftlichen Leben angewiderten Calamy, der aus Langeweile ein Verhältnis mit der Schriftstellerin Mary Thriplow anfängt. Aber auch Francis Chelifer kommt auf das Schloß, ein nicht unbedeutender Lyriker, der das Mittelmaß für den einzig erträglichen Zustand hält und von Mrs. Aledwinkle hartnäckiger Liebe verfolgt wird. Und so beginnt ein Reigen um Liebe, Verrat und Leidenschaft. »Parallelen der Liebe« ist ein Feuerwerk funkelnder Gedanken und Einfälle über die Liebe, das Leben und die Kunst präsentiert mit Leichtigkeit und Virtuosität. »Parallelen der Liebe« - jetzt wieder bei Piper Edition erhältlich
