My life as I know it is over. And no, I’m not being dramatic. I’ve been living as a human, but now I have to return to my mermaid roots because my dad is the new king of Valora. As soon as we arrive, he sends me to the Dark Sea Academy. Whispers and glares greet me at every turn. Students accuse my dad of killing the previous king, his brother. My first night, the most popular girl tries to kill me. I barely escape, only to run into Bash. He’s older and one wrong move from being expelled. Also as gorgeous as he is arrogant.

If I’m to survive the academy, I need to focus on staying alive. Unfortunately, that means relying on Bash—and he’s a distraction that could very well cost me everything.

The Comedy of Errors - William Shakespeare Preview:

In a race against the clock, identical twin brothers unexpectedly trade places, which threatens one brother’s marriage, the other’s sanity and both of their freedom. It’s a slapstick comedy full of hijinks and convoluted conflicts. When their family is shipwrecked, two identical twin boys are separated and forced to grow up with a single parent. One went with their mother, while the other was raised by their father. Years later, the brothers, both named Antipholus, unexpectedly swap lives when one attempts to search for the other. Antipholus of Syracuse is mistaken for Antipholus of Ephesus, who is married to a slightly overbearing wife, Adriana. Despite his reservations, Adriana brings Antipholus of Syracuse to their home where his strange behavior leads to a major debacle. The Comedy of Errors delivers on its descriptive title. It’s a multilayered story filled with tongue twisters and a complex plot. The clever writing and captivating characters make this a timeless farce. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Comedy of Errors is both modern and readable..

The Disney Musical on Stage and Screen - George Rodosthenous Preview:

The Disney Musical: Critical Approaches on Stage and Screen is the first critical treatment of the corporation's hugely successful musicals both on screen and on the stage. Its 13 articles open up a new territory in the critical discussion of the Disney mega-musical, its gender, sexual and racial politics, outreach work and impact of stage, film and television adaptations. Covering early 20th century works such as the first full-length feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), to The Lion King - Broadway's highest grossing production in history, and Frozen (2013), this edited collection offers a diverse range of theoretical engagements that will appeal to readers of film and media studies, musical theatre, cultural studies, and theatre and performance. The volume is divided into three sections to provide a contextual analysis of Disney's most famous musicals: · DISNEY MUSICALS: ON FILM · DISNEY ADAPTATIONS: ON STAGE AND BEYOND · DISNEY MUSICALS: GENDER AND RACE The first section employs film theory, semiotics and film music analysis to explore the animated works and their links to the musical theatre genre. The second section addresses various stage versions and considers Disney's outreach activities, cultural value and productions outside the Broadway theatrical arena. The final section focuses on issues of gender and race portraying representations of race, hetero-normativity, masculinity and femininity in Newsies, Frozen, High School Musical, Aladdin and The Jungle Book. The various chapters address these three aspects of the Disney Musical and offer new critical readings of a vast range of important works from the Disney musical cannon including Enchanted, Mary Poppins, Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Lion King and versions of musicals for television in the early 1990s and 2000s. The critical readings are detailed, open-minded and come to surprising conclusions about the nature of the Disney Musical and its impact..

The Pirate - Sir Walter Scott Preview:

After growing tired of civilization, Basil Merton moves to the island known as Shetland with his young son, Mordaunt. Much more social than his father, Mordaunt is content reaching out to the other few people residing in their community, and grows up alongside the Troil daughters, Brenda and Minna. Peaceful and absent of the typical issues of society, Mordaunt is happy on the island, and content with his friends. But everything changes with the arrival of Captain Cleveland. Shipwrecked with the rest of his crew, Captain Cleveland has no choice but to stay on the island. During his stay, he helps himself to whatever he likes, an attitude shared by his crew. While the pirates disrupt the usually quiet town, Captain Cleveland causes problems even closer to home for Mordaunt. After falling in love with Minna, Captain Cleveland is persistent in his advances, and is misleading about his lifestyle, playing into Minna’s ideas of heroics. Against her father’s and Mordaunt’s advice, Minna reciprocates the captain’s love, but the pirate can only hide the truth for so long. Featuring forbidden love, disturbances, and delightfully odd characters, The Pirate by Sir Walter Scott is an enthralling tale of adventure and romance. Written in an accessible style, The Pirate is a rare and vivid depiction of the culture and landscape of Shetland, including the portrayal of Captain Cleveland and his crew. With thorough description and well-developed characters, Sir Walter Scott shares a valuable and intriguing perspective on 17th century pirates, enlightening modern readers while also thrilling them with the adventurous narrative. This edition of The Pirate by Sir Walter Scott now features an eye-catching new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of The Pirate crafts an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original mastery of Sir Walter Scott’s literature..

Creative Spirituality - Robert Wuthnow Preview:

In a provocative book that explores the fascinating link between the creative and the sacred, Robert Wuthnow claims that artists have become the spiritual vanguard of our time. Drawing on in-depth interviews with painters, sculptors, writers, singers, dancers, and actors, Wuthnow includes the spiritual insights of accomplished artists who have gained prominence as Broadway performers, gospel singers, jazz musicians, poets, Native American painters, weavers, dancers, and installation artists. He profiles such national figures as novelist Madeleine L'Engle, playwright Tony Kushner, photographer Andres Serrano, sculptor Greg Wyatt, dancer Carla DeSola, and woodcarver David Ellsworth. Situating these artists' reflections in the context of wider cultural ferment, Wuthnow argues that spirituality is coming increasingly to focus on the inherently ineffable character of the sacred—what artists refer to as divine mystery. As growing numbers of Americans doubt the adequacy of religious creeds in defining the sacred, they are turning to artists who seek a more intuitive sense of the sacred through symbols and imagery. These artists provide rich insights into the social and cultural problems of our time. Many have been shaped by the growing ethnic, racial, and religious diversity of the United States. Many are at the cutting edge of new thinking about body, mind, and spirit, and many are seeking ways to integrate their understandings of spirituality with interests in nature and preserving the environment. For readers interested in exploring contemporary spirituality or engaged in spiritual pursuits of their own, this engaging, elegantly written, and erudite book will answer many questions about the changing moral and spiritual role of creativity and the arts..

Ulysses - James Joyce Preview:

Ulysses, one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin. Each episode has its own literary style, and the epic journey of Odysseus is only one of many correspondencies that add layers of meaning to the text. Ulysses has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. Today critical interest centres on the authority of the text, and this edition, complete with an invaluable Introduction, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more..
