Review:

'Oscar Wilde's Victorian comedy of manners can still seem thrillingly contemporary - the sharp repartee and delicious skeweing of hypocrisy and pomposity can still make you laugh out loud.' Siobhan Murphy, Metro (London), 10.7.09 'The Importance of Being Earnest' is the most perfect high comedy in the English language.' Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph, 10.7.09 'a revelation of inter-personal social engineering that keeps things firmly in the family in a gloriously superficial piece of serious fun.' Neil Cooper, Herald, 25.10.10 'A treasure trove of delicious aphorisms and quotable epigrams' Robert Dawson Scott, The Times, 27.10.10 'Wilde's 1895 masterpiece is a magnificent piece of theatre' Joyce McMillan, Scotsman, 29.10.10 'a biting satire wrapped in a romantic comedy' Mark Brown, Sunday Herald, 31.10.10 'Wilde's tale of love, snobbery, misunderstandings and unlikely coincidences' Mark Brown, Sunday Herald, 31.10.10 'Oscar Wilde's most celebrated comedy' Allan Radcliffe, List, 4.11.10

Book Description:

The BBC radio drama centenary production of Oscar Wilde's classic play, starring Judi Dench, Miriam Margoyles and Martin Clunes

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 180 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Alexis de Tocqueville s Democracy in America has been recognized as an indispensable starting point for understanding American politics. From the publication of the second volume in 1840 until his death in 1859, Tocqueville continued to monitor political developments in America and committed many of his thoughts to paper in letters to his friends in America. He also made frequent references to America in many articles and speeches. Did Tocqueville change his views on America outlined in the two volumes of Democracy in America published in 1835 and 1840? If so, which of his views changed and why? The texts translated in Tocqueville on America after 1840: Letters and Other Writings answer these questions and offer English-speaking readers the possibility of familiarizing themselves with this unduly neglected part of Tocqueville s work. The book points out a clear shift in emphasis especially after 1852 and documents Tocqueville s growing disenchantment with America, triggered by such issues as political corruption, slavery, expansionism and the encroachment of the economic sphere upon the political.
