USS Voyager is assigned to investigate. To assist the mission, Captain Kathryn Janeway recruits a reluctant, cashiered Starfleet Officer who has also acted as a mercenary for the Maquis. Whilst exploring the renegade ship's last known position Voyager is mysteriously propelled 70 000 light years from home. Searching this uncharted quadrant of the galaxy, they become embroiled in a centuries-old enviromental problem on a nearby inhabited world. In 'Parallax', USS Voyager goes to the aid of a stricken vessel, only to become entrapped in a vortex of distorted time and space. 'Time and Again' sees Captain Janeway and Lieutenant Paris journey back to the past in order to solve the mystery surrounding a devastated world. In 'Phage', the quest to restock their starship USS Voyager has brought them to a barren planetoid where Neelix is attacked and has his lungs stolen. In 'The Cloud', the USS Voyager travels to the heart of a large nebula, but once inside becomes trapped and the crew realise that everything is not as it seems.

In 'Ex Post Facto', Tom Paris is convicted of murder whilst on an alien planet. In 'Emanations', the crew of the Voyager make a gruesome discovery while investigating a new chemical element and Harry Kim mysteriously disappears. In 'Prime Factors', the crew discover that the aliens offering them lavish hospitality on their shore leave also have the technology to send the Voyager back to their own quadrant - but the alien laws forbid their use of it. In 'State of Flux', the Voyager encounters the fearsome Kazon warriors again as they investigate a wrecked Kazon starship. They soon discover evidence of a traitor in their midst. In 'Heroes and Demons', several members of the Voyager crew disappear in a holodeck recreation of the medieval poem, Beowulf. The only member of the crew who can enter the holodeck safely is the reluctant doctor. In 'Cathexis', the USS Voyager finds a shuttlecraft containing an unconscious Tuvok and a comatose Chakotay. But when some of the crew of the Voyager start behaving strangely, it becomes apparent that the shuttlecraft has more than just two members. In 'Faces', the Vidians, a group of repulsive aliens who have contracted a disease which disfigures their faces, believe that the only cure is Klingon DNA. The Vidians then decide to use such technology to make B'elanna a full Klingon. In 'Jetrel', a shuttlecraft hails the Voyager with bad news for Neelix, informing him that he may be suffering from a life-threatening disease. In 'Learning Curve', the crew is plunged into danger when the computer starts to malfunction. Pressures build up as some of the Maquis in the crew decide not to follow Starfleet regulations.

He's in love with a girl but his father won't agree to their marriage because her family are too poor.

Cutting a joyously independent path through the underhand scheming and petty vendettas around her, Moll proves more than a match for any man.

This Norton Critical Edition of Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker's The Roaring Girl is based on the text from English Renaissance Drama: A Norton Anthology. It is accompanied by generous explanatory annotations, five illustrations, and a detailed introduction. "Contexts" is thematically arranged to include almost all known documents from the period concerning Mary Frith (aka Moll Cutpurse), among them records of her court appearances, letters recounting the same, and her last will. Also reprinted are significant passages from her purported 1662 "autobiography," The Life and Death of Mrs. Mary Frith. While of dubious veracity, the "autobiography" is useful for comparing the play's portrayal of Moll with later developments in Moll Cutpurse lore, which the Norton Critical Edition traces through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Perhaps most engaging for classroom discussion are substantial excerpts from the 1620 cross-dressing pamphlets-Hic Mulier; or, The Man-Woman and Haec Vir; or, The Womanish Man-which appear in annotated, modern-spelling versions. Together they give insight into how gender-bending trends in clothing, similar to those practiced by Moll, were understood in the early seventeenth century. A related passage from A Sermon of Apparel adds another perspective on cross-dressing practices. Fourteen critical essays chart the development of scholarly interest in The Roaring Girl, from the first half of the twentieth century, when the play received only passing reference, through the work on city comedy in the 1970s and 1980s, to the explosion of analyses in the late 1980s and 1990s, when the play became a major focus for early modern gender studies. The more recent critical essays move beyond a strict focus on gender and cross-dressing to explore The Roaring Girl's depiction of other aspects of early modern London, including consumer culture and the contemporary fascination with the language of the criminal underworld. Contributors include, among others, T. S. Eliot, Alexander Leggatt, Mary Beth Rose, Jonathan Dollimore, Jean E. Howard, and Jonathan Gil Harris. A Selected Bibliography is also included.

A timeless, little-known literary classic. As the Black Death ravaged London in 1608, the theatres closed, many people moved out of town for safety, and playwrights scrambled to find other outlets for their talent. While Shakespeare retreated to his hometown of Stratford, Thomas Dekker wrote Four Birds of Noah's Ark, a book containing fifty-six prayers for the people of London and all of England. Dekker's prayers bear witness to his deep faith and profound understanding of human psychology with a power and poignancy that few written prayers in English literature achieve. Bringing this devotional classic back into print for the first time since 1924, editor Robert Hudson has included a fine introduction, annotated the prayers, and modernised the language without sacrificing any of its beauty and simplicity. This lovely book at once surprises and enchants with its literary voice, devotional heart, and accessible writing.

Arden of Faversham * A Woman Killed with Kindness * The Witch of Edmonton * The English Traveller In about 1590, an unknown dramatist had the idea of writing a tragedy about the lives of ordinary people, instead of the genre's usual complement of kings and queens and politicians. His play, Arden of Faversham, inaugurated a new genre of 'domestic' drama, set in near-contemporary England and concerned with issues of marriage, crime, and property rather than war and power. Arden dramatizes a notorious murder case of forty years earlier, in which a wealthy husband was killed by his wife and her lover. In Thomas Heywood's A Woman Killed with Kindness, a wife is caught by her husband in bed with his best friend, only to find that he takes unusual reprisals. The Witch of Edmonton combines a true-life story of witchcraft with a fictitious tale of bigamy and wife-murder, and The English Traveller deals with the unexpected and unwelcome changes people find when they return home after a lengthy absence. Part of the Oxford English Drama series, this edition has modern-spelling texts; a critical introduction that outlines the way all four plays raise powerful and complex questions about the English society in which their tragic events unfold; wide-ranging notes; a chronology of the plays from their sources to recent performance; and appendices relating to two of the plays: who wrote Arden of Faversham and when did Heywood write The English Traveller. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
