The Prizefighter And The Playwright

by Jay R. Tunney, The Prizefighter And The Playwright Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Prizefighter And The Playwright book, The curious story of the unlikely relationship between a champion boxer and a celebrated man of letters. Gene Tunney, the world heavyweight-boxing champion from 1926 to 1928, seemed an unusual companion for George Bernard Shaw, but Shaw, a world-famous playwright, found the Irish-American athlete to be "among the very few for whom I have established a warm affection." The Prizefighter and the Playwright chronicles the legendary -- but rarely documented -- relationship that formed between this celebrated odd couple. From the beginning, it seemed a strange relationship, as Tunney was 40 years younger and the men could not have occupied more different worlds. Yet it is clear that these two famous men, comfortable on the world stage, longed for friendship when they were out of the celebrity spotlight. Full of surprises and revelations about Shaw and Tunney, this handsome book is also a fascinating look at their times. Author Jay R. Tunney is the son of the famous fighter, and his book is a beautifully woven and often surprising biography of the two men. The book evolved from the acclaimed BBC radio program The Master and the Boy. Fans of George Bernard Shaw will enjoy the little-known stories in this intensely personal account that includes never-before-published images from Tunney's own family collection.

The Star Of Istanbul

by Robert Olen Butler, The Star Of Istanbul Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Star Of Istanbul book, An intrepid reporter boards the Lusitania in a “vivid . . . ripping good” spy thriller from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author (The Wall Street Journal). It’s 1915, World War I is in full swing, and foreign correspondent Christopher “Kit” Marlowe Cobb is tasked with following a German intellectual and possible secret service agent traveling on the British ocean liner Lusitania. But Cobb is soon distracted from his mission by the sultry Selene Bourgani, a world-renowned silent film star who also appears to be working with German Intelligence. The more Cobb thinks he knows her, the less he really does. The secrets Selene harbors have the potential to set the whole international conflict further aflame—and they’re ignited by a German U-boat attack off the Irish coast. From the perilous waters of the Atlantic, Cobb tails Selene first into London’s darkest alleyways, then on to the powder keg that is Istanbul. Across the war-torn stages of Europe and the Middle East, Cobb must venture deep behind enemy lines, knowing full well he may not return. The second book in Robert Olen Butler’s Christopher Marlowe Cobb series, The Star of Istanbul “has it all: history galore, exotic foreign settings, a world-weary yet engaging protagonist, villains in abundance and a romance worthy of Bogart and Bergman” (BookPage). “[An] outstanding work of historical fiction.” —Huntington News “Butler . . . holds the reader transfixed, like a kid at a Saturday matinee.” —Booklist, starred review “An exciting thriller with plenty of action, romance, and danger . . . [a] fast-paced journey through a world at war.” —Library Journal

Shakespeare Bacon And The Great Unknown Annotated Edition

by Andrew Lang, Shakespeare Bacon And The Great Unknown Annotated Edition Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Shakespeare Bacon And The Great Unknown Annotated Edition book, The theory that Francis Bacon was, in the main, the author of “Shakespeare’s plays,” has now been for fifty years before the learned world. Its advocates have met with less support than they had reason to expect. Their methods, their logic, and their hypotheses closely resemble those applied by many British and foreign scholars to Homer; and by critics of the very Highest School to Holy Writ. Yet the Baconian theory is universally rejected in England by the professors and historians of English literature; and generally by students who have no profession save that of Letters. The Baconians, however, do not lack the countenance and assistance of highly distinguished persons, whose names are famous where those of mere men of letters are unknown; and in circles where the title of “Professor” is not duly respected. Contents: Introduction Chapter I: The Baconian And Anti-Willian Positions Chapter Ii: The “Silence” About Shakespeare Chapter Iii: That Impossible He - The Schooling Of Shakespeare Chapter Iv: Mr. Collins On Shakespeare’s Learning Chapter V: Shakespeare, Genius, And Society Chapter Vi: The Courtly Plays: “Love’s Labour’s Lost” Chapter Vii: Contemporary Recognition Of Will As Author Chapter Viii: “The Silence Of Philip Henslowe” Chapter Ix: The Later Life Of Shakespeare - His Monument And Portraits Chapter X: “The Traditional Shakspere” Chapter Xi: The First Folio Chapter Xii: Ben Jonson And Shakespeare Chapter Xiii: The Preoccupations Of Bacon Appendices Appendix I: “Troilus And Cressida” Appendix Ii - Chettle’s Supposed Allusion To Will Shakspere This book is annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.
