A provocative, moving, kinky, and often absurdly funny memoir about Shakespeare, love, obsession, and spanking When it came to understanding love, a teenage Jillian Keenan had nothing to guide her—until a production of The Tempest sent Shakespeare’s language flowing through her blood for the first time. In Sex with Shakespeare, she tells the story of how the Bard’s plays helped her embrace her unusual sexual identity and find a love story of her own. Four hundred years after Shakespeare’s death, Keenan’s smart and passionate memoir brings new life to his work. With fourteen of his plays as a springboard, she explores the many facets of love and sexuality—from desire and communication to fetish and fantasy. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Keenan unmasks Helena as a sexual masochist—like Jillian herself. In Macbeth, she examines criminalized sexual identities and the dark side of “privacy.” The Taming of the Shrew goes inside the secret world of bondage, domination, and sadomasochism, while King Lear exposes the ill-fated king as a possible sexual predator. Moving through the canon, Keenan makes it abundantly clear that literature is a conversation. In Sex with Shakespeare, words are love. As Keenan wanders the world in search of connection, from desert dictatorships to urban islands to disputed territories, Shakespeare goes with her —and provokes complex, surprising, and wildly important conversations about sexuality, consent, and the secrets that simmer beneath our surfaces.

Was ist Wirklichkeit? Existieren Raum und Zeit tatsächlich, wenn wir uns anschicken, die elementarsten Grundlagen unserer Existenz zu erforschen? Wie viel davon können wir überhaupt verstehen? Carlo Rovelli beschäftigt sich seit vielen Jahren damit, die Grenzen unseres Verstehens zu erweitern. In diesem Buch nimmt er uns mit auf eine Reise, die von dem Realitätsverständnis der griechischen Klassik bis zur Schleifenquantengravitation führt. Ein großer Physiker unserer Zeit macht sich auf, uns ein neues Welt-Bild zu zeichnen: mit einem physikalischen Universum ohne Zeit, einer Raumzeit, die aus Schleifen und Körnchen besteht und in der Unendlichkeit nicht existiert. Einer Kosmologie, die ohne Urknall und Paralleluniversen auskommt und hier zum ersten Mal von einem ihrer «Erfinder» für ein breites Publikum einfach und ausführlich erklärt wird. Ein Buch über «die großen Herausforderungen der gegenwärtigen Naturwissenschaften, die all unser Wissen über die Natur in Frage stellen» (Rovelli).

This well-illustrated book offers first a fascinating and informative account of the part played by sex in Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon and London, and in his own life, followed by discussion of various aspects of his treatment of love and sex in his plays. There are chapters on the humour that Shakespeare gets out of sex in his comedies, on the ways in which he relates sexual desire to both lust and love, and a discussion of Romeo and Juliet as theplay in which in which he focuses most centrally on issues relating to sex, love, and the relationship between them. A chapter on sexual jealousy traces his treatment of the topic in four major plays. 'Sexual Experience' studies his portrayal of, mainly, older lovers, and 'Whores and Saints' looks at hisportrayals of the extremes of womanhood. A final chapter, 'Just Good Friends', investigates his depiction of same-gender relationships.

Stanley Wells is one of the best-known and most versatile of Shakespeare scholars. This book, written with characteristic verve and accessibility, considers how far sexual meaning in Shakespeare's writing is a matter of interpretation by actors, directors and critics. Tracing interpretations of Shakespearean bawdy and innuendo from eighteenth-century editors to recent scholars and critics, Wells pays special attention to recent sexually orientated studies of A Midsummer Night's Dream, once regarded as the most innocent of its author's plays. He considers the Sonnets, some of which are addressed to a man, and asks whether they imply same-sex desire in the author, or are quasi-dramatic projections of the writer's imagination. Finally, he looks at how male-to-male relationships in the plays have been interpreted as sexual in both criticism and performance. Stanley Wells's lively, provocative, and open-minded book will appeal to a broad readership of students, theatregoers and Shakespeare lovers.

This book shows that William Shakespeare was a more personal writer than any of his innumerable commentators have realised. It asserts that numerous characters and events were drawn from the author's life, and puts faces to the names of Jaques, Touchstone, Feste, Jessica, the 'Dark Lady' and others. Steven Sohmer explores aspects of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets that have been hitherto overlooked or misinterpreted in an effort to better understand the man and his work. If you've ever wondered who Pigrogromitus was, or why Jaques spies on Touchstone and Audrey - or what the famous riddle M. O. A. I. stands for - this is the book for you.

Paul Hammond explores the representation of sexual relations between men in English literature of the seventeenth century. He includes detailed readings of Shakespeare's Sonnets, and shows how his plays added homosexual elements to his source stories. He also analyses the satirical representation of homosexual kings such as James I and William III, and the homoerotic poetry of Marvell and Rochester.

Igor, ein asthmatischer kleiner Junge, der mit seinen Eltern in Leningrad lebt, wächst mit Sehnsüchten auf: nach Essen, nach Bestätigung, nach Wörtern. Als er fünf ist, schreibt er unter dem Einfluss seines Lieblingsbuchs «Die wunderbare Reise des kleinen Nils Holgersson mit den Wildgänsen» seinen ersten Roman, «Lenins wunderbare Wildgänse», und seine Großmutter gibt ihm für jede Seite eine Scheibe Käse. Damit er weiter zu Kräften kommt und auch seine Höhenangst überwindet, bringt sein Vater im Wohnzimmer eine Sprossenwand an, und trotz Schwindel und Schweißausbrüchen träumt Igor hoch droben, er werde Kosmonaut. Zwei Jahre später, 1979, wandert die jüdische Familie nach Amerika aus, aber erst unterwegs erfährt er mit Schrecken, wohin die Reise geht: «zum Feind». Und doch findet Igor, der sich nun Gary nennt, in New York seine erste Spielkameradin überhaupt, ein Mädchen, dem ein Auge fehlt. «Ich bin Einwanderer, und sie hat nur ein Auge, also sind wir gleich.» Diese Geschichte eines Jungen, der von seinen Eltern zärtlich «kleiner Versager» genannt wird, weil man ihn zwar abgöttisch liebt, aber nicht so recht an sein Glück und seinen Erfolg im Leben glaubt, ist ein an Menschenkenntnis und Emotionen beglückend reiches Buch – voller Humor, obwohl die Familie wegen Hitler und Stalin nicht viel zu lachen hat und Alltagsnöte sich auftürmen wie Berge. Eine berührende und zugleich komische Kindheitsgeschichte: fesselnd, meisterhaft und – da sie Gary Shteyngarts eigene Geschichte ist – auch wahr.
