    Companion to Comparative Literature, World Literatures, and Comparative Cultural Studies by: Steven Totosy de Zepetnek, Tutun Mukherjee, 850.00 680.00

     

    The collected volume Companion to Comparative Literature, World Literatures and Comparative Cultural Studies edited by Steven Totosy de Zepetnek (Purdue University) and Tutun Mukherjee (University of Hyderabad) is intended to address the current situation of scholarship in the discipline of comparative literature and the fields of world literature and comparative cultural studies in a global context. While the discipline of comparative literature in the West appears to be losing ground in its institutional presence, in other parts of the world including Asia and Latin America, as well as in “peripheral” European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Poland, Greece, Macedonia, etc. the discipline is flourishing both in scholarship and in its institutional structure and pedagogical vitality. The field of world literatures is gaining renewed interest in US-American scholarship while the field of comparative cultural studies is a new area of study pursued by scholars who are committed to the intellectual trajectories of comparative literature minus Eurocentrism and the nation approach and cultural studies. 36 articles of around 6000 words each are presented in thematic groups in this volume.

    The Winslow Boy (Acting Edition for Theater Productions) (Drama Classics) by: Terence Rattigan 1,350.00

    Based on the real-life court case of a young naval cadet unjustly accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order and first staged in 1946, The Winslow Boy has been revived many times since, including at The Old Vic in 2013.

    Ronnie Winslow is expelled from naval college, having been accused of petty theft. Enraged, his father Arthur engages a lawyer to challenge the Admiralty to prove the charges in court – but public opinion is very much against the Winslows, and each member of the family is suffering…

    This edition includes an authoritative introduction by Dan Rebellato, a biographical sketch and a chronology.

    ‘A sterling example of Rattigan’s dramatic skill and humanity… deeply poignant’ Telegraph

    ‘A playwright of acute emotional intelligence, elegant wit, and an extraordinary gift for expressive construction… thrilling’ Independent
