Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: She knows what she wants from her life, her music, and herself. Until Venice… and him. Megan knows better than to make decisions based on passion, but even she can’t resist a summer performance internship nestled in the romantic waterways of Venice. The handsome but aggravating tenor she accidentally knocked into the canal should be easier to resist. Should be easier. And yet, both this city and this man spark something deep inside her, tempting her to open her heart… to dream. Lorenzo is a singer who lives for his dreams, even if sometimes that means doing odd jobs to pay the bills. He has no patience for anyone who doesn’t live with the same level of devotion to their art. So why can’t he ignore Megan, who keeps her desires so carefully under guard that he can’t help trying to drag them out? And how can her stifled heart feel the soul of Venice the way his own does -- the way he thought only a native Venetian ever could? She swore she’d never date a musician. He has no desire to date an American. When the person you’re stuck with is attractive, talented, and infuriating, something has to give… and in this case, it might be both their hearts.

Book excerpt: They don't see eye to eye, but maybe heart to heart? Megan has scored a dream internship with a chamber orchestra in Venice. Only catch? It's part of a reality TV show, and she has always held back from the spotlight. Lorenzo--an opera singer waiting for his big break--pays his bills as a camera man. But reality TV is the opposite of everything he believes art and music to be. Lorenzo hates that Megan doesn't take her music seriously. Megan swore she'd never date a musician. As he follows her around all summer, their battlegrounds start to become common ground, and soon they're fighting for each other--against their own fears and pride. Oh, and there's that little matter of the contest, and the ocean that will separate them if she doesn't win... Love Victorious in Venice is book two in the "Love Takes Flight" series.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A wonder-struck art school dropout and a disillusioned Italian bachelor have ten days in Florence to change their lives. After Samantha dropped out of art school to care for her grandmother, the two spent years planning a trip to Italy together… but now her grandmother is dead, and Samantha is left to pick up the pieces of her own life and dreams. She’ll start with Florence: stay at a charming countryside castle, study all the sculptures… and try not to get distracted by the sculpted jaw of her hosts’ dreamy—but definitely not interested—son. Edo has come home after six years, summoned to take the reins of the family's bed & breakfast—a fate he's dreaded most of his life. He's not even home a day before his mother is pushing him to play tour guide for their current guest, a pretty girl who seems different from the tourists Edo remembers. As Florence begins to open Samantha’s heart, she opens Edo’s eyes to the city and home he'd forgotten how to love—but Samantha only has ten days in the country; will that be enough for them to build a future on?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: She left him years ago. Can the eternal city help them believe in second chances? Holly has only rebelled twice in her life: Getting a degree in history instead of nursing, and dating Luca, the Italian-American who swept her off her feet sophomore year of college. Neither rebellion lasted long. Now, seven years later, her husband has died, shattering her appearance-perfect life and waking her up to the reality of how she has always been controlled, first by her mother, then by her husband. Desperate to finally break free, she searches for joy in the one place she’d given up on ever going: Rome. Luca is too busy managing a luxury hotel in Rome to date. When the girl who broke his heart seven years ago shows up as a guest, there’s nothing he can do except make sure she has an enjoyable stay—without letting her anywhere near his heart. If there’s one thing Holly knows from her history degree, it’s that learning from the past is the only way into a brighter future. But that means finding the courage to stand up to her mother… and convincing Luca to trust her one more time. If they can get over their past, could they find their future?

William Shakespeare is disguised as a steward to the English Ambassador. He and his friends Oldcastle and Hemminges possess a deadly secret: the names of the catholic spies in England who seek to destroy Queen Elizabeth. Before long the Pope's agents will begin to close in on them and fleeing the city will be the players' only option. In Verona, Aemelia, the daughter of a Duke, is struggling to conceal her passionate affair with her cousin Valentine. But darker times lie ahead with the arrival of the sinister Father Thornhill who is determined to seek out any who don't conform to the Pope's ruthless agenda . . . Events will converge in the forests around Verona as a multitude of plots are hatched and discovered, players fall in and out of love and disguises are adopted and then discarded. Will Shakespeare and his friends escape with their secrets - and their lives? Bursting with breathless action, swaggering charm and rapier-sharp dialogue, The Assassin of Verona is the gripping new novel from the acclaimed author of The Spy of Venice. Praise for Benet Brandreth "Playful and inventive . . . The dialogue is wonderful, and Will's banter with his fellow actors sparkles." Antonia Senior "Entertaining and ebullient . . . The author knows his Shakespeare backwards (the Venice setting has been carefully chosen), rejoices in its wordplay, loves his allusions and has a good time with his characters. So did I." Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail "A Venetian romp" Telegraph 'Strong, well fleshed-out and colourful characters, a fast-moving and interesting plot and some good set-piece scenes, plus Brandreth's stylish writing, which rejoices in its wordplay and his love of allusions, will keep you guessing to the dramatic, blood-soaked end...a unique and compelling thriller' Crime Review

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Shakespeare is usually set apart from his contemporaries, in kind no less than quality. This book, the long-awaited final volume in the Oxford History of English Literature, sees Elizabethan drama as drawn together by a shared need to deal with contradictory pressures from heterogeneous audiences, censorious authorities, profit driven managers, and authors looking for classic status and social esteem. Hunter follows the compromises and contradictions of the Elizabethan repertory, examining how Shakespeare and his fellow dramatists were able to move easily from vulgar realism to poetic transcendence.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "A comprehensive and richly illustrated survey of Venetian Renaissance architecture, sculpture, and painting created between 1400 and 1600 addressed to students, travellers, and the general public. The works of art are analysed within Venice's cultural circumstances--political, economic, intellectual, and religious--and in terms of function, style, iconography, patronage, classical sources, gender, art theories, and artist's innovations, rivalries, and social status. The text has been divided into two parts--the fifteenth century and the sixteenth century--each part preceded by an introduction that recounts the history of Venice to 1500 and to 1600 respectively, including the city's founding, ideology, territorial expansion, social classes, governmental structure, economy, and religion. The twenty-six chapters have been organized to lead readers systematically through the major artistic developments within the three principal categories of art--governmental, ecclesiastic, and domestic--and have been arranged sequentially as follows: civic architecture and urbanism, churches, church decoration (ducal tombs and altarpieces), refectories and refectory decoration (section two only), confraternities (architecture and decoration), palaces, palace decoration (devotional works, portraits, secular painting, and halls of state), villas, and villa decoration. The conclusion offers an overview of the major types of Venetian art and architectural patronage and their funding sources"--Provided by publisher.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Swedish cinema became recognized for daring representations of sexuality with such films as One Summer of Happiness (1951), The Silence (1963), I Am Curious (Yellow) (1967) and a wave of sex films in the late 1960s and 1970s. The association between Swedish film and sexuality shows up frequently in popular culture. From Taxi Driver (1976) to Mad Men (2007-2015), dirty Swedish movie references abound. Yet the connection has attracted little critical attention. In this collection of new essays, Swedish and American scholars go beyond popular misconceptions to explore the origins, influences and reception of sexuality in Swedish cinema during the "sexual revolution" on both sides of the Atlantic. A broad range of topics are covered, from analyses of key films, to a behind-the-scenes study of the Swedish Film Institute, which played a significant role in opposing Swedish film censorship.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book investigates how Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, and their circle understood the idea of Europe. What geographical, cultural, and ideological concepts did they associate with the term? What does this tell us about politics and identity in early nineteenth-century Britain? In addressing these questions, Paul Stock challenges prevailing nationalist interpretations of Romanticism, but without falling prey to imprecise alternative notions of cosmopolitanism or "world citizenship." Instead, his book accounts for both the transnational and the local in Romantic writing, reassessing the period in terms of more complex, multi-layered identity politics.

Download Shakespeare on Love and Lust PDF Format Full Free by Maurice Charney and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2002-07-22 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The complex and sometimes contradictory expressions of love in Shakespeare's works—ranging from the serious to the absurd and back again—arise primarily from his dramatic and theatrical flair rather than from a unified philosophy of love. Untangling his witty, bawdy (and ambiguous) treatment of love, sex, and desire requires a sharp eye and a steady hand. In Shakespeare on Love and Lust, noted scholar Maurice Charney delves deeply into Shakespeare's rhetorical and thematic development of this largest of subjects to reveal what makes his plays and poems resonate with contemporary audiences. The paradigmatic star-crossed lovers of Romeo and Juliet, the comic confusions of couples wandering through the wood in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello's tragic jealousy, the homoerotic ways Shakespeare played with cross-dressing on the Elizabethan stage—Charney explores the world in which Shakespeare lived, and how it is reflected and transformed in the one he created. While focusing primarily on desire between young lovers, Charney also explores themes of love in marriage (Brutus and Portia) and in same-sex pairings (Antonio and Sebastian). Against the conventions of Renaissance literature, Shakespeare qualified the Platonic view that true love transcends the physical. Instead, as Charney demonstrates, love in Shakespeare's work is almost always sexual as well as spiritual, and the full range of desire's dramatic possibilities is displayed. Shakespeare on Love and Lust begins by considering the ways in which Shakespeare drew upon and satirized the conventions of Petrarchan Renaissance love poetry in plays like Romeo and Juliet, then explores how courtship is woven into the basic plot formula of the comedies. Next, Charney examines love in the tragedies and the enemies of love (Iago, for example). Later chapters cover the gender complications in such plays as Macbeth and The Taming of the Shrew as well as the homoerotic themes woven into many of the poems and plays. Charney concludes with a lively discussion of paradoxes and ambivalences about love expressed by Shakespeare's word play and sexual innuendoes.
