"That Measure for Measure, a work of the dramatist's maturity, remains the focus of unresolved controversy calls into question the adequacy of Shakespeare criticism to be answerable to "what he hath left us." This book illustrates a way to conduct eclectic and historical criticism capable of manifesting this problematic play's coherence. It closely studies as drama, according to the conventions demonstrably presupposed, the play indicated by the text when construed as Shakespeare's extant provisions for its performance." "Analysis shows that Measure for Measure's principal interest cannot be character as such, but rather the searching play of thought, about a rich nexus of issues radical to our humanity, projected through the staged action it informs. To apprehend it, attention to structure, dramaturgy, and methods of representation is as essential as studying how Shakespeare uses ideas received from his co-creating culture." "Through this study, Measure for Measure emerges as a great play; uniquely daring in conception, scope, and comic purgation; humanely wise and balanced in outlook; brilliant in dramaturgical wit; exhilaratingly entertaining; and perhaps Shakespeare's most sophisticated work, though its coherence has often previously been clouded by misconstrual."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Vengeance leads to justice in this trio of thrillers from the USA Today–bestselling author and “one of the best all-out action writers in the business” (Los Angeles Review of Books). “Nobody writes action like Jon Land,” and in these three action-packed thrillers, personal quests for vengeance expose international conspiracies posing global threats (John Lescroart). No wonder James Rollins says: “Jon Land proves yet again that suspense has a new king.” Labyrinth: An American op in Colombia has discovered a far-reaching conspiracy, code-named Tantalus. After he is murdered, the State Department enlists an old friend of his. Once the Academy’s brightest prospect, Christopher Locke is now an unemployed professor sunken in debt, struggling to support three children. To avenge his friend’s death, Locke pursues a nefarious organization known as the Committee from Lichtenstein to Geneva to London, but with every turn he finds himself closer and closer to his own dead end. The Lucifer Directive: Since the day his father was murdered by hijackers, Dan Lennigin has dreamed about taking revenge on the world’s terrorists. Now a college student, he is awakened one night by a phone call and hears a code meant for someone else’s ears. Minutes after the call, an operative for the antiterrorist agency Lucifer is killed, and his superiors come for Dan. He is the only one who has heard the warning, and the only one who can stop an international terrorist conspiracy. The Council of Ten: After his cocaine-smuggling grandmother turns informant for the DEA and is murdered by a vicious drug lord, journalist Drew Jordan vows to avenge her. But he soon discovers the drug-smuggling operation is only the tip of a global conspiracy. Teaming up with an ex-CIA black ops agent known as the Timber Wolf and a lethal female Mossad agent, Jordan must bring down a shadow organization known only as the Council of Ten.

In devoting a whole book to Measure for Measure Miss Lascelles has expressed her conviction that in no other way can the sharp divisions of opinion which characterise recent criticism of the play be resolved. She considers that to continue discussing the large issues involved in the limited space of a single article or chapter is to continue to fail to take full account of the difficulties the reader or playgoer finds perplexing. Her study falls into three main sections. She begins by discussing other versions of the story in European literature that may have been known to Shakespeare, and the way in which they may be used to throw light on his intentions. Next, she undertakes a long and reflective analysis of the play's successive phases. Finally, at the conclusion of this essential investigation of the evidence, she shows how it supports the view that the complexity of Measure for Measure is the necessary condition of its greatness.
