Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by such eminent literary critics as Harold Bloom, seems hardly to need a recommendation. If you haven't read it recently, though, you may not remember the sweeping force of the prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelgänger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. As fantasy writer Jane Yolen writes of this (the reviewer's favorite) edition, "The strong black and whites of the main text [illustrations] are dark and brooding, with unremitting shadows and stark contrasts. But the central conversation with th

Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes," first published in 1837, has been told and retold in hundreds of ways, but never, ever by such a star-studded cast of scribes and artists as this. Sure, we still get the vainglorious, fashion-obsessed Emperor who is duped into parading down the street in an "invisible suit of clothes." And, of course, we still welcome the Honest Boy, the only one with enough gumption to point out that the Emperor's fancy-pants birthday suit is exactly that--a birthday suit. In this quirky, comical version, however, the story is crafte

This edition of Shakespeare's Macbeth allows a variety of approaches to Shakespeare, including historical, feminist, and cultural studies. Shakespeare's text is accompanied by an intriguing collection of thematically arranged historical and cultural documents and illustrations, including excerpts from such sources as letters, conduct books, legal documents, and literary works that illuminate the themes of the play. The editor's introductions to the play and to the documents (which are presented in modern spelling with annotations) offer a richly textured understanding of Elizabethan culture an

Patrick Lewis, haunting illustrations by Gary Kelley, and
