Shouting matches, a Stasi comparison and mass resignations: It's a drama worthy of "Jane Eyre."
I didn't know I loved Jane Eyre until I began teaching it. You would think that after hours of research and hundreds of student papers, there would be nothing new to say about a novel nearly two centuries old.
It’s not Jane Eyre’s most defiantly feminist moment, but somehow it’s the one we cling to.
The past isn't dead. It isn't even past. Especially when it comes to long-lost manuscripts.
Even before William Shakespeare's so-called "problem play" Measure for Measure gets properly underway at the Globe, director Dominic Dromgoole has loosed on the audience what looks and sounds like a musical 16th-century orgy attended by various bawds and Lords (Lawds?).
If there's one thing I know for sure, it's what makes a good book. Sure, I haven't written any of my own any time lately but I sure have read a lot.
