She lived on the island of Lesbos around 600 B.C.E. She composed lyric poetry, only fragments of which survive. And she was--and is--the most highly regarded woman poet of Greek and Roman antiquity. Little more than this can be said with certainty about Sappho, and yet a great deal more is said. Her life, so little known, is the stuff of legends; her poetry, the source of endless speculation. This book is a search for Sappho through the poetry she wrote, the culture she inhabited, and the myths that have risen around her. It is an expert and thoroughly engaging introduction to one of the most enduring and enigmatic figures of antiquity.Margaret Williamson conducts us through ancient representations of Sappho, from vase paintings to appearances in Ovid, and traces the route by which her work has reached us, shaped along the way by excavators, editors, and interpreters. She goes back to the poet's world and time to explore perennial questions about Sappho: How could a woman have access to the public medium of song? What was the place of female sexuality in the public and religious symbolism of Greek culture? What is the sexual meaning of her poems? Williamson follows with a close look at the poems themselves, Sappho's "immortal daughters." Her book offers the clearest picture yet of a woman whose place in the history of Western culture has been at once assured and mysterious.

Shakespeare and Literary Theory examines the most influential movements in contemporary literary theory and how its leading practitioners have engaged with Shakespeare. The book consists of twelve chapters, each devoted to a different theoretical movement. The chapters are in turn grouped into three larger parts, each of which focuses on an umbrella theme. Part One, 'Language and Structure', pursues a trajectory from formalism, structuralism anddeconstruction to rhizome and actor-network theory. Part Two, 'Desire and Identity', traces a second trajectory from Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis through feminism to queer theory. Part Three, 'Culture and Society', picks up on a third trajectory from Marxism and poststructuralist Marxism through newhistoricism and cultural materialism to postcolonial theory. Even as the book seeks to cover the gamut of contemporary literary theoretical movements, its three parts are also calibrated with persistent theoretical preoccupations in Shakespeare's poems and plays.

Far more than any professional historian, Shakespeare is responsible for whatever notions most of us possess about English medieval history. Anyone who appreciates the dramatic action of Shakespeare's history plays but is confused by much of the historical detail will welcome this guide to the Richards, Edwards, Henrys, Warwicks and Norfolks who ruled and fought across Shakespeare's page and stage. Not only theater-goers and students, but today's film-goers who want to enrich their understanding of film adaptations of plays such as Richard III and Henry V will find this revised edition of Shakespeare's English Kings to be an essential companion. Saccio's engaging narrative weaves together three threads: medieval English history according to the Tudor chroniclers who provided Shakespeare with his material, that history as understood by modern scholars, and the action of the plays themselves. Including a new preface, a revised further reading list, genealogical charts, an appendix of names and titles, and an index, the second edition of Shakespeare's English Kings offers excellent background reading for all of the ten history plays.
