Book Description: The Deliverance of Sanctuary is a fast-paced existentialist play, with snappy and witty dialogues, quick exchanges and quick interchanges - a tragicomedy in three Acts. It is a Theatre of the Absurd revival with colourful, hyperbolic and interesting characters that engross us during an eccentric, yet seemingly divine, journey. Any strict interpretations would, however, be erroneous because the play is nothing other than absurd. Its brilliance lies in its simplicity, which is used effectively to bind together numerous themes to produce an evocative commentary on human condition as it is, has been, and will always be. Everything that happens is as important as everything that does not, all that is said is as significant as all that is not. This creates a unique platform that truly allows the audience to partake in The Deliverance of Sanctuary by taking from it only what each sees fit.

Book Description: This is a substantial revision of Sarah Ruden's celebrated 2008 translation of Vergil's Aeneid, which was acclaimed by Garry Wills as "the first translation since Dryden's that can be read as a great English poem in itself." Ruden's line-for-line translation in iambic pentameter is an astonishing feat, unique among modern translations. Her revisions to the translation render the poetry more spare and muscular than her previous version and capture even more closely the essence of Vergil's poem, which pits national destiny against the fates of individuals, and which resonates deeply in our own time.00This distinguished translation, now equipped with introduction, notes, and glossary by leading Vergil scholar Susanna Braund, allows modern readers to experience for themselves the timeless power of Vergil's masterpiece.

Book Description: Perched high on the top of Hathorne Hill in what was once the village of Salem, Danvers State Insane Asylum was, for more than a century, a monument to modern psychiatry and the myriad advances in mental health treatment. From the time it opened its doors in 1878 until they were shuttered for good in 1992, the asylum represented decades of reform, the physical embodiment of the heroic visions of Dorothea Dix and Thomas Story Kirkbride. It would stand abandoned until 2005, when demolition began. Along with a dedicated group of private citizens, the Danvers Historical Society fought to preserve the Kirkbride structure, an effort that would result in the reuse of the administration building and two additional wings. Danvers has earned a unique place in history; the shell of the original Kirkbride building still stands overlooking the town. Though it has been changed drastically, the asylum's story continues as do efforts to memorialize it.
