IN THIS EVOCATIVE NOVEL, Janice Kulyk Keefer beautifully imagines Katherine Mansfield’s brief but brilliant life through the desires and the passions of her readers. In 1986, shortly before the centenary of Mansfield’s birth, Monty, a disillusioned New Zealand scholar, impulsively steals a letter intended for his writer-father. Intrigued by the letter’s offer of new Mansfield material, Monty is inspired to try to redeem his failed career. Arcing gracefully from New Zealand to Europe to Chicago and finally to Windsor, Ontario, Thieves is at once a brilliant mystery, an absorbing love story and a haunting study of what makes us whole.

When Michael Holroyd's life of Strachey first appeared in 1967, it was hailed as a landmark in contemporary biography. Drawing now on new material, published and unpublished, Holroyd has completely revised and rewritten his masterwork to tell the full story of this complex man and his world as it could not be told while many of Strachey's friends and lovers were still alive. And at the heart of the story is the poignant liasion between Strachey and the painter Dora Carrington. A panorama of the social, literary, political and sexual life of a generation, LYTTON STRACHEY reverberates in the mind like a great novel.

P Papinius Statius Silvae Book II

The five books of the Silvae bring together the occasional verses which Statius wrote in addition to his two epics. In these short descriptive poems Statius elaborates features taken from various genres into an original whole, in which description and eulogy play important roles. The main themes of the poems of his second book are consolation after bereavement and the contrast between nature and culture. The present work contains a general introduction, a text of Silvae II, a bibliography, and an index, together with a verse-by-verse commentary on the poems of this second book. This is the first commentary on a book of the Silvae since Vollmer's commentary on the whole of the Silvae of 1898. Emphasis is here placed on interpretation and moreover chiefly on the literary and stylistic aspects of the poems, which, compared with the epic poetry of Statius and his contemporaries, have hitherto received relatively little attention.
