Four animated adventures featuring Nick Park's inimitable pair of plasticine heroes: cheese-loving inventor Wallace and his long-suffering dog Gromit. In 'A Grand Day Out' (1993), Wallace runs out of his favourite Wensleydale cheese on Boxing Day and cannot find a shop open to replenish his stock. The only solution is to get in his homemade rocket and head for the biggest block of cheese in the universe: the moon. In 'The Wrong Trousers' (1993), Wallace and Gromit encounter difficulties with the demonstration of the inventor's 'Techno Trousers' and encounter a rogue chicken. In 'A Close Shave' (1995), Wallace and Gromit set up a lucrative window cleaning business and get involved with a lady from a wool shop. Wallace becomes infatuated with her, but Gromit becomes interested in the case of some disappearing sheep, and blames the wool-shop owner's dog. However, the devious dog frames Gromit for the disappearing sheep, and Wallace must pull himself together in time to save the reputation of his old pal. In 'A Matter of Loaf and Death' (2008), the pair have converted their home into the 'Top Bun' bakery - complete with rooftop windmill - but with 12 local bakers having gone mysteriously missing, Gromit worries that they'll soon make up the baker's dozen. Wallace, meanwhile, is oblivious to the danger, having fallen head over heels for former Bake-O-Lite bread babe, Piella Bakewell. With his master otherwise engaged, it's up to Gromit to rise to the occasion and solve the mystery before Wallace becomes the next victim of the 'cereal' killer.

A collection of Barack Obama's greatest speeches selected and introduced by columnist E.J. Dionne and MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid. "It is a political partisan's dream to see them [Obama's words] so finely gathered here." - Washington Post We Are the Change We Seek is a collection of Barack Obama's 26 greatest addresses: beginning with his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq War and closing with his final speech before the United Nations in September 2016. As president, Obama's words had the power to move the country, and often the world, as few presidents before him. Whether acting as Commander in Chief or Consoler in Chief, Obama adopted a unique rhetorical style that could simultaneously speak to the national mood and change the course of public events. Obama's eloquence, both written and spoken, propelled him to national prominence and ultimately made it possible for the son of a Kenyan man and a white woman from Kansas to become the first black president of the United States. These speeches span Obama's career--from his time in state government through to the end of his tenure as president--and the issues most important to our time: war, inequality, race relations, gun violence and human rights. The book opens with an essay placing Obama's oratorical contributions within the flow of American history by E.J. Dionne Jr., columnist and author of Why The Right Went Wrong, and Joy Reid, the host of AM Joy on MSNBC and author of Fracture.

The debt owed by Shakespeare to Ovid is a major and important topic in scholarship. This book offers a fresh approach to the subject, in aiming to account for the Middle English literary lenses through which Shakespeare and his contemporaries often approached Greco-Roman mythology. Drawing its principal examples from The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Taming of the Shrew, Romeo and Juliet, Lucrece, and Twelfth Night, it reinvestigates a selection of moments in Shakespeare's works that have been widely identified in previous criticism as "Ovidian", scrutinising their literary alchemy with an eye to uncovering how ostensibly classical references may be haunted by the under-acknowledged, spectral presences of medieval intertexts and traditions. Its central concern is the mutual hauntings of Ovid, Geoffrey Chaucer, and John Gower in the early modern literary imagination; it demonstrates that "Ovidian" allusions to mythological figures such as Ariadne, Philomela, or Narcissus in Shakespeare's dramatic and poetic works were sometimes simultaneously mediated by the hermeneutic and affective legacies of earlier vernacular texts, including The Legend of Good Women, Troilus and Criseyde, and the Confessio Amantis. LINDSAY ANN REID is a Lecturer in English at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Black poets of the Harlem Renaissance (1920-1929) relied heavily upon traditional rhetorical devices, specifically irony and paradox. In contrast, their counterparts of the sixties adopted a more radical approach, employing instead street idiom and other modes of Black discourse. While the poets' strategies of the two periods differ, one element remained constant - the theme of protest. It is this similarity in purpose that marks the poetry of the Harlem Renaissance as a precursor of the revolutionary poetry of the sixties. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this insightful and skillfully woven study of the rhetorical strategies of the protest poetry from the Harlem Renaissance and the revolutionary sixties. As a product of the revolutionary sixties, I think Dr. Margaret Reid makes excellent commentaries and comparisons that shed new literary light on both dynamic periods. (Carolyn Rodgers, Poet, Teacher) Margaret Ann Reid's book resonates with brilliance and scholarship. She offers a vision of Black literature that is vital to our understanding of the Black Arts Movement and beyond. A major study. (Sonia Sanchez, Poet, Essayist, Teacher, Activist) Dr. Reid's book is structured as a quintessential poetry/literature course textbook, which is destined to become a standard. The context for understanding the words of poetry on their paper is pointedly, excellently established. The historical perspectives provide a sure footing for students of black literature (and others who are interested) from which to see the chronicle of these movements which ebb and then flow with unremitting force.
