Peer Gynt Peer Gynt Henrik Ibsen 1980 Fall
In this revised and amplified edition of Rolf Fjelde’s widely acclaimed translation, Peer Gynt is available in a contemporary version that captures the poetic form of the original yet does justice to its subtlety of meaning and enduring theatrical vitality. Fjelde provides an interpretive foreword, extensive notes, a new background essay titled “Text/Translation/Script,” a selected bibliography, and an American stage history covering significant revivals since its English-language premiere in 1906.
Old Brick: Charles Chauncy of Boston, 1705-1787 Old Brick Charles Chauncy of Boston, 1705-1787 Edward M. Griffin None None
Charles Chauncy is remembered today as the chief antagonist of Jonathan Edwards during the Great Awakening of the 1740s, yet his contemporaries knew him as a powerful, influential figure in his own right. During his 60-year tenure as pastor of Boston’s First Church (the “Old Brick”) Chauncy involved himself in most of the important issues of the century. Not only did he aggressively oppose the emotional revivalism of the Great Awakening, but he was also a bold pamphleteer and preacher in support of the American Revolution. Old Brick, the first full-scale biography of Charles Chauncy, makes it possible to consider Chauncy a figure worthy of study and to take a fresh look at eighteenth-century New England in light of the tradition Chauncy represents.
