This Student Edition of The Crucible is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled guide to Miller's classic play. It features an extensive introduction by Susan C. W. Abbotson which includes: a chronology of Miller's life and times; a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study, detailed notes on words and phrases from the text and the additional scene 2 of the second Act, this is the definitive edition of the play. In a small tight-knit community gossip and rumour spread like wildfire inflaming personal grievances until no-one is safe from accusation and vengeance. The Crucible is Miller's classic dramatisation of the witch-hunt and trials that besieged the Puritan community of Salem in 1692. Seen as a chilling parallel to the McCarthyism and repressive culture of fear that gripped America in the 1950s, the play's timeless relevance and appeal remains as strong as when the play opened on Broadway in 1953.

Die Rücksichtslosigkeit anderen – aber vor allem sich selbst gegenüber. Die Radikalität des Ansatzes. Die schwindelerregenden Wechsel zwischen kleinsten Details und großen Gedanken. Die essayistischen Passagen zu Themen der Kunst- und Literaturgeschichte. Und diesmal auch: die berührende Schilderung einer Krankheit und Ehekrise. In „Kämpfen“, dem fulminanten Abschluss des sechsbändigen autobiographischen Projektes von Karl Ove Knausgård, findet sich alles, was schon die ersten fünf Bände zu einem Ereignis machte, und geht noch einmal weit darüber hinaus. Geschrieben nach dem sensationellen Erfolg der Vorgängerbände in Norwegen, dem darauf folgenden Skandal auf Grund der Preisgabe von vermeintlich Intimem, radikalisiert Knausgård seine schonungslose Methode noch einmal und treibt sie bis zu einer äußersten Schmerzgrenze. Ein künstlerischer Triumph, ein Vordringen zum Kern des Menschlichen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts.

Note: this is an abridged version of the book with references removed. The complete edition is also available. While the memorialization of slavery has generated an impressive number of publications, relatively few studies deal with this subject from a transnational, transdisciplinary and transracial standpoint. As a historical phenomenon that crossed borders and traversed national communities and ethnic groups producing alliances that did not overlap with received identities, slavery as well as its memory call for comparative investigations that may bring to light aspects obscured by the predominant visibility of US-American and British narratives of the past. This study addresses the memory of slavery from a transnational perspective. It brings into dialogue texts and practices from the transatlantic world, offering comparative analyses which interlace the variety of memories emerging in diverse national contexts and fields of study and shed light on the ways local countermemories have interacted with and responded to hegemonic narratives of slavery. The inclusion of Brazil and the French, English, and Spanish Caribbean alongside the United States and Europe, and the variety of investigative approaches-ranging from cinema, popular culture and visual culture studies to anthropology and literary studies-expand the current understanding of the slave past and how it is reimagined today. This fascinating book brings freshness to the topic by considering objects of investigation which have so far remained marginal in the academic debate, such as heroic memorials, civic landscape, white family sagas, Young Adult literature of slavery, Latin American telenovelas and filmic narrations within and beyond Hollywood. What emerges is a multifarious set of memories, which keep changing according to generation, race, gender, nation and political urgency and indicate the advancing of a dynamic, mobilized memorialization of slavery willing to move beyond mourning towards a more militant stand for justice. This is an important book for those interested in African American, American, and Latin American studies and working across literature, cinema, visual arts, and public culture. It will also be useful to public official and civil servants interested in the question of slavery and its present memory.
