Excerpt from The Duellists, or Men of Honour: A Story, Calculated to Shew the Folly, Extravagance, and Sin of Duelling Fragrance; for, to him, they are as the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily ofthe Val ley. There are many authors too, who exclude from their books the oracles of god, while abundance of quotations from philosophers and poets are strewed about their frigid morality: thus the only source of virtue is neglected, and man, relying on. Himself, remains in. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

While recognizing Scott's undeniable contributions to contemporary popular cinema, the volume does not shy away from honest and well-evidenced critique. Each chapter's approach correlates with philosophical, literary, or cultural studies perspectives. Using both combined and single-film discussions, the contributors examine such topics as gender roles and feminist theory; philosophical abstractions like ethics, honor, and personal responsibility; historical memory and the challenges of accurately rendering historical events on screen; literary archetypes and generic conventions; race relations and the effect of class difference on character construction; how religion shapes personal and collective values; the role of a constantly changing technological universe; and the schism between individual and group-based power structures.

This book offers the first comprehensive, international survey of more than eighty films and videos based on the life and work of Joseph Conrad. Essays by leading film and literary scholars examine the films, both in the context of film history and technology, and in terms of the theoretical and practical problems facing directors - including Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Francis Ford Coppola and Andrzej Wajda - who have attempted to put Conrad on film. Conrad was the first major English author to adapt his work for the screen, and the story of his unpublished 'film-play' is told in an important chapter. The challenges of finding visual analogues for Conrad's narrative irony and filmic equivalents for his narrators are also examined. The volume is well illustrated and includes a detailed filmography and film bibliography, making it a landmark study of Conrad films and film adaptations in general.

In April 2011, Barcelona and Real Madrid faced each other four times in just 18 days: twice in Champions League semi- finals, once in La Liga, again in the Copa del Rey. Those 18 days descended into a strained, feverish period that defined an era for one of football s most intense rivalries: Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho. In The Duellists, Paolo Condo tells the story of the rivalry that encapsulated both the best and worst of modern football.
