Oxford University Press celebrates the hundredth anniversary of the Oxford World's Classics series by reissuing some of the world's best-loved novels in their original hardcover format, with special introductions by today's most distinguished writers.The Mayor of Casterbridge opens with an act of such heartlessness and cruelty that it still shocks today. Michael Henchard, an out-of-work hay-trusser, gets drunk at a fair and for five guineas sells his wife and child to a sailor. When the horror of his act finally sets in, Henchard swears he will not touch alcohol for twenty-one years. Through hard work and acumen, he becomes rich, respected, and eventually the mayor of Casterbridge. But eighteen years after his fateful oath his wife and daughter, Elizabeth-Jane, return to Casterbridge, and his fortunes steadily decline. He clashes with his business assistant, Donald Farfrae, who soon becomes his major rival. He ruins his business through impulsive speculations and takes to drinking again. In the end, Farfrae owns Henchard's business and his house, has gained the affection of his lover Lucetta, and has even become mayor of Casterbridge. In a final insult, Farfrae marries Elizabeth-Jane. Having lost everything he once possessed, Henchard dies broken and bereft in a miserable hut.Rick Moody has found acclaim exploring the claustrophobia and disconnection of suburban America in works such as Demonology, The Ice Storm, Purple America, and Garden State. Calling The Mayor of Casterbridge "the first great novel about alcoholism," Moody offers in his introduction penetrating insight into the character of Henchard and the crippling deficiencies that guarantee his ruin.

In The Mikado to Matilda: British Musicals on the New York Stage, Thomas Hischak provides an overview of British musicals that made their way to Broadway, covering their entire history up to the present day. This is the first book to look at the British musical theatre with reference to those London musicals that were also produced in New York City. The book covers 110 British musicals, ranging from 1750 to the present day, including the popular Gilbert and Sullivan comic operettas during the Victorian era, the Andrew Lloyd Webber mega-musicals of the late twentieth century, and today's biggest hits such as Matilda. Each London musical is discussed first as a success in England and then how it fared in America. The plots, songs, songwriters, performers, and producers for both the West End and the Broadway (or Off Broadway) production are identified and described. The discussion is sometimes critical, evaluating the musicals and why they were or were not a success in New York.

The Complete Annotated Gilbert and Sullivan provides the complete text of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas which are still performed today, together with extensive annotations covering 'lost' songs, alterations and additions, obscure allusions, production points, and comments of interest.Each opera has an introduction which places it in its context, and a potted history of performances up to the present. No other book provides such extensive commentary on the texts of the Savoy Opera nor such a source of innocent merriment to fans of the incomparable Victorian duo.For each opera, there is a short introduction describing how the work came to be written, and giving its performance history. The text, including stage directions, is given on the right-hand page, and on the left (keyed in by line numbers) are notes. These give such information as the identity of areal-life person appearing or mentioned as a character, wordings that were different in the original edition (the one sent to the Lord Chamberlain for licensing), changes made for the first American performance, glosses on technical terms (e.g. legal terms), literary references, cross-references tosimilar items in other Savoy operas, comments from first-night critics, and many other things
That argument might help to justify some of the faults of Princess Ida, but it is a stretch. When the Prince and his friends defeat Ida's brothers, she capitulates in Princess Ida (while in the Tennyson poem, the Prince is wounded and ...
