The Heinemann Advanced Shakespeare series specifically focuses on preparing students for their exams. Teachers find that the accessible notes and end-of-act activities really help students understand the text and encourage them to develop their own insights.

Category: Mirror symmetry
In 1993, M Kontsevich proposed a conceptual framework for explaining the phenomenon of mirror symmetry. Mirror symmetry had been discovered by physicists in string theory as a duality between families of three-dimensional CalabiOCoYau manifolds. Kontsevich''s proposal uses Fukaya''s construction of the A Oex -category of Lagrangian submanifolds on the symplectic side and the derived category of coherent sheaves on the complex side. The theory of mirror symmetry was further enhanced by physicists in the language of D-branes and also by StromingerOCoYauOCoZaslow in the geometric set-up of (special) Lagrangian torus fibrations. It rapidly expanded its scope across from geometry, topology, algebra to physics. In this volume, leading experts in the field explore recent developments in relation to homological mirror symmetry, Floer theory, D-branes and GromovOCoWitten invariants. Kontsevich-Soibelman describe their solution to the mirror conjecture on the abelian variety based on the deformation theory of A Oex -categories, and Ohta describes recent work on the Lagrangian intersection Floer theory by FukayaOCoOhOCoOhtaOCoOno which takes an important step towards a rigorous construction of the A Oex -category. There follow a number of contributions on the homological mirror symmetry, D-branes and the GromovOCoWitten invariants, e.g. Getzler shows how the Toda conjecture follows from recent work of Givental, Okounkov and Pandharipande. This volume provides a timely presentation of the important developments of recent years in this rapidly growing field. Contents: Estimated Transversality in Symplectic Geometry and Projective Maps (D Auroux); Local Mirror Summetry and Five-Dimensional Gauge Theory (T Eguchi); The Toda Conjecture (E Getzler); Examples of Special Lagrangian Fibrations (M Gross); Linear Models of Supersymmetric D-Branes (K Hori); The Connectedness of the Moduli Space of Maps to Homogeneous Spaces (B Kim & R Pandharipande); Homological Mirror Symmetry and Torus Fibrations (M Kontsevich & Y Soibelman); Genus 1-Virasoro Conjecture on the Small Phase Space (X Liu); Obstruction to and Deformation of Lagrangian Intersection Floer Cohomology (H Ohta); Topological Open p-Branes (J-S Park); Lagrangian Torus Fibration and Mirror Symmetry of CalabiOCoYau Manifolds (W-D Ruan); More About Vanishing Cycles and Mutation (P Seidel); Moment Maps, Monodromy and Mirror Manifolds (R Thomas). Readership: Researchers and graduate students in differential geometry, topology and theoretical physics."
Critical Encounters with the New Approaches to the Criticism of Shakespeare and His Contemporaries
Author: Richard Louis Levin
Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press
This book collects a number of Richard Levin's essays, beginning with his well-known PMLA article of 1988 on Feminist Thematics and Shakespearean Tragedy and continuing through the 1990s, that examine and evaluate some of the most important aspects of the new critical approaches to the interpretations of the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries- principally the New Historicism, feminism, and revisionist versions of Marxism and Freudianism. In these essays he is looking not only for rational arguments in these approaches, but also for a rational argument with their practitioners, and therefore he reprints several of the responses that these essays have elicited (including th PMLA Forum letter signed by twenty-four people who objected to Feminist Thematics) along with his answers to them, which contribute to this critique of the present state of the discourse in this field.
Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of the previous year's textual and critical studies and of major British performances. The books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and production photographs. The current editor of Survey is Peter Holland. The first eighteen volumes were edited by Allardyce Nicoll, numbers 19-33 by Kenneth Muir and numbers 34-52 by Stanley Wells. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have characterised the journal from the start. For the first time, numbers 1-50 are being reissued in paperback, available separately and as a set.
