When Deirdre unites with her lover Naoise and goes into exile with the Sons of Usna, the stage is set for betrayal and bloodthirsty revenge that will plunge all Ulster into darkness. Vincent Woods's poetic retelling of the myth of Deirdre transforms this timeless story into a compelling contemporary drama.

In Cry Heaven, Cry Hell, the author tries to open our eyes to show that even with good intentions roads can be paved to Hell. The story follows three men who lived evil ways and then repented. Two of the men die, but one remains to either be held accountable for what they all did or to have their repentant behavior be figured into the yardstick of their collective judgment. The three men are: 1) An Irishman who wipes out an entire family and flees Ireland, 2) A descendant of an Amer-Indian ally of France, who aided France in the French/Indian War, and who is seeking revenge against her for a betrayal, and 3) An American Indian whose bitter life on a reservation was interrupted by adoption into a wealthy Boston family and seeks revenge against the white man by using the weakness of greed, just as the white man used the genetic difficulty the Indians had for alcohol against him. If we are, indeed, the guardians of Democracy, then let us guard it and not fall asleep on our laurels or let the impersonal doctrines of guilt and innocence that we invent to hide our anger from ourselves take over the responsibility of making not only just, but also morally responsible decisions; for all the decisions we make go further than the courtroom. They enter into our professional family, and neighborly lives as well. A truly thought provoking must-read.

From the vampires Lestat and Louis to a sexually liberated Sleeping Beauty, novelist Anne Rice has created a host of characters who are notable for their paradoxical combinations of the deviant and the conventional. Exit to Eden, for example, ends with the sado-masochistic protagonists embarking on a traditional monogamous heterosexual relationship, while the vampires often long to exchange their erotic immortality for “ordinary” mortal lives and loves. This scholarly analysis of the seemingly incompatible elements of the subversive and the socially acceptable in Rice’s early work covers her career from the landmark Interview with the Vampire (1976) to Lasher (1993). Each chapter tackles a different aspect of Rice's conflicting portrayals of sexual issues, including homophobia, pedophilia, castration anxiety, and the vast array of gender stereotypes and roles that her novels so often interpret and exploit. This study is appropriate both for readers of Rice’s writing and those intrigued by issues of sexual politics and the ways in which a popular author both embraces and repudiates some of the most shocking concepts of sexuality. An index and bibliography are included to aid research.

These essays explore new methods and overlooked traditions that appear to shed light on how the founders of the Christian movement understood the older sacred tradition and sought new and creative ways to let it speak to their own times. Gurtner discusses the Matthean version of the temptation narrative. Chandler investigates the exhortation to 'love your neighbour as yourself' from Lev. 19.18b. Talbot re-examines Jesus' offer of rest in Mt. 11.28-30. Myers explores the ways Matthew's appeal to Isa. 42.1-4 in Mt. 12.17-21 affects the characterization of Jesus in his Gospel. Hamilton explores 1 Enoch 6-11 as a retelling of Genesis 3-6. Herzer seeks to explain varuiys aspects of Mt. 27.51b-53. McWhirter explores the citation of Exod 23.20, Mal. 3.1, and Isa. 40.3 in Mk 1.2-3. Hopkins investigates the manner in which Jesus engages questions and persons regarding purity and impurity. Miller notes that victory songs are a generally acknowledges category of Hebrew poetry. Gregerman argues that studies of early Christian proselytism to Gentiles are largely focussed on missionary methods of converts.
