Thus Burst Hippocrene: Studies in the Olympian Imagination is a collection of nine papers in comparative literature. Discussing the greatest Olympians in world literature, including Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Li Bo, Du Fu, and the Bible authors, it is both daring in conception and wide-ranging in scope. Freely drawing on the author’s knowledge of Classical Greek, Latin, Italian, French, German, Spanish, English, and Chinese as well as on his conversance with the literatures of these languages, the papers are truly comparative, making discoveries unique to the author’s characteristic multi-lingual, multi-cultural approach. In going through the book, the reader will be pleasantly surprised by its originality, by its amazing depth and breadth, and by the new light it sheds on topics that are of interest to scholars and students of comparative literature. Written in lucid language with no pretentious jargon, it will also appeal to the general reader who picks up a book simply for the joy of reading or for horizon-broadening without tears.
Where Theory and Practice Meet is a collection of nineteen papers in translation studies. Unlike many similar books published in recent decades, which are mostly non-translation-oriented, veering to issues with little or no relevance to translation, this book focuses on the translation process, on theory formulation with reference to actual translation, on getting to grips with translation problems, and on explaining translation in language which can be understood by the general reader. Perceptive and wide-ranging, the book covers language pairs that include Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin, and Classical Greek, and discusses, among other things, translations of Dante’s La Divina Commedia; translations of Shakespeare’s Hamlet; Goethe’s “Prometheus” as a case of untranslatability; the challenge of translating Garcilaso de la Vega’s “Primera Égloga” into Chinese; John Minford’s translation of martial arts fiction; and Lin Shu’s translation of Alexandre Dumas’s La Dame aux camélias.

Sudhakar Rao spends hours reading under a suragi tree in his father's home in a small village in Karnataka. As he grows, he moves away from this idyllic setting to the complexities of life in the temple town of Udupi, and then to the whirl of Mumbai. His huge family network strains and breaks as parents die and friends vanish. Sudhakar Rao becomes a professor of English literature, but memories of his Sanskrit stories and philosophy travel with him even as he travels far from home. His relationships with women, his growing sadness, his dying uncle who had given him so much love, leave him desolate. The Suragi Tree takes the reader through six decades as it traces a path leading from a village in rural Karnataka, through a small town, to the city of what was then Bombay, and then back again to where it all began.

Upon publication in 1997, The Norton Shakespeare set a new standard for teaching editions of Shakespeare's complete works. Instructors and students worldwide welcomed the fresh scholarship, lively and accessible introductions, helpful marginal glosses and notes, readable single-column format, all designed in support of the goal of the Oxford text: to bring the modern reader closer than before possible to Shakespeare's plays as they were first acted. Now, under Stephen Greenblatt's direction, the editors have considered afresh each introduction and all of the apparatus to make the Second Edition an even better teaching tool.
