3 The Song of Songs in English Renaissance Literature: Kisses of Their Mouths
Flinker, Noam D.S.Brewer Ltd 2000 0859915867 / 9780859915861 Hard Cover Fine No Jacket as Issued 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
BRAND NEW HARDBACK. RRP. £50.00. 173pp. Green cloth. No dust jacket (as issued). Many English Renaissance texts offer readings of the Song of Songs, by both well-known authors, such as Shakespeare, and the long neglected (William Baldwin, Robert Aylett, Abiezer Coppe and Lawrence Clarkson). This new study looks at the different traditions they represent, and most notably the balance in the tension of the Song of Songs as oral and written, carnal and spiritual. The introduction presents a historical and theoretical discussion of Canticles, using a Rabbinic model for juxtaposing orality and textuality; the author goes on to argue that from the time of ancient Sumer through medieval England motifs found in the Song of Songs are simultaneously sexual and spiritual just as they are likewise oral and textual. By attempting to recover oral approaches to any text, we encounter a series of forces that act to balance an open, oral, and sexual understanding of the erotic biblical text against a more closed, textual and spiritual reading. This balance is then traced through works by Baldwin, Spenser, Aylett, Coppe, Clarkson and Milton. Noam Flinker is currently Chairperson at the Department of English, University of Haifa. 032436

12 The Wall
Sutcliffe, William Bloomsbury 2013 1408837455 / 9781408837450 First Thus Hard Cover New New 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
New hardback with dust jacket. RRP £12.99. First impression of this edition. Original black boards. Excellent, fine condition. pp. 291. Joshua is a troubled boy who lives with his mother and stepfather in a divided city, where a wall and soldiers separate two communities and the rubble-strewn residue of their broken world gives hints of the old life before the wall was built. Joshua discovers a manhole, which leads to a tunnel, which leads in pitch darkness under the wall and across to the other side. Forbidden territory, dangerous territory, violent territory, which a boy like him - visibly different - shouldn't stray into. An act of kindness from a girl saves his life, but leads to a brutal act of cruelty and a terrible debt he's determined to repay. And no one, no one must find out that he's been there - or the consequences will be unbearable. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 058133

7 1913
Illies, Florian ; translated into English by Shaun Whiteside and Jamie Lee Searle The Clerkenwell Press 2013 1846689511 / 9781846689512 Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 
New hardback. 2nd printing. In excellent fine condition. RRP £14.99. The DJ is supplied by us in a loose protective archival clear film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 272pp. A witty yet moving narrative worked up from sketched documentary traces and biographical fragments, 1913 is an intimate cultural portrait of a world that is about to change forever. The stuffy conventions of the nineteenth century are receding into the past, and 1913 heralds a new age of unlimited possibility. Kafka falls in love; Louis Armstrong learns to play the trumpet; a young seamstress called Coco Chanel opens her first boutique; Charlie Chaplin signs his first movie contract; and new drugs like cocaine usher in an age of decadence. Yet everywhere there is the premonition of ruin - the number 13 is omnipresent, and in London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Trieste, artists take the omen and act as if there were no tomorrow, their brief coincidences of existence telling of a darker future. In a Munich hotel lobby, Rilke and Freud discuss beauty and transience; Proust sets out in search of lost time; and while Stravinsky celebrates the Rite of Spring with industrial cacophony, in Munich an Austrian postcard painter by the name of Adolf Hitler sells his conventional cityscapes. Told with Illies's characteristic mixture of poignant evocation and laconic irony, 1913 is the story of the year that shaped the last century. 303618
