In this book the distinguished historian Victor Kiernan makes a case for seeing Shakespeare as a writer profoundly sensitive to the great social and political upheavals through which he lived. Shakespeare’s poetic and dramatic achievement, Kiernan argues, was not something which transcended his environment but was directly enlarged by his civic consciousness and his critical reactions to a changing social fabric. Shakespeare’s phase of dramatic activity coincides with the first challenges to the institution of monarchy. Kiernan analyses the cycle of History plays in the light of the demise of feudal allegiances and the emergence of the modern state apparatus. He shows how the far-reaching transformations in social hierarchy which simultaneously began to take place are crucial to an understanding of the Comedies, in which confusion of identity, disguise and cross-dressing are central. And he examines the ways in which women’s roles are affected by this nascent individualism, especially in relation to the ideas of romantic love around which the Comedies revolve. Shakespeare: Poet and Citizen draws a vivid portrait of the outstanding dramatist of modernity.

On his ninth birthday Sam is given what he wants most of all -- a puppy. Sam names him Dodger. The whole family loves Dodger, but Dodger does get into trouble sometimes -- like when he knocks the trash all over the kitchen floor, or chews a big hole in Sam's baseball cap, or jumps into the tub when Sam's older sister is taking a bath. "Bad dog, Dodger!" Sam scolds him each time. "He's not bad. He just wants to play," Sam's father says.Then the Little League baseball season begins. In the very first game, when Sam is up at bat, Dodger comes flying onto the field and runs off with the bat! Sam knows "something" has to be done or he may not be allowed to keep Dodger, so he starts Dodger's serious obedience training. How Dodger becomes an honorary member of Sam's team is the happy climax of this funny story that -- with Adam Gustavson's humorous, full-color pictures -- will delight all Little Leaguers and their parents as well.

Here are a Few Things From The Book: How to Be More Outgoing Are You an Introvert or an Extrovert It was Carl Jung, who coined “extrovert” and “introvert” in the 1920s as he studied the different psychological types of human beings. In his study, he pointed out that the differences between the two lies down to one factor: energy. According to him, extroverts are people that are fueled by social interactions while this can actually be taxing for those people who are introverts. This means that an introvert may need to find some time alone in order to recharge after attending a social gathering such as a party. A person that is purely introvert or purely extrovert is almost non-existing. To fully understand whether you are more of an extrovert or an introvert, you need to know how to classify the two. The Extroverts Extroverts are considered people lovers. They feel more energized when people are around them. A fun night for them would involve a dozen of family or friends with them. They can be funny, warm, energetic and are usually the life of the party. They may also, sometimes be self-centered and demanding and will do whatever it takes to be in the spotlight.
The Introverts Introverts do not interact with people as much as extroverts do. This simply means that they would rather be around a few people rather than lots of people. For instance, unannounced visits of other people like their family members can be very stressful, even when the visitors are not doing anything to interrupt them. Although opposites, there is a great possibility for an introvert and an extrovert to relate to each other in a balanced manner and come up with a mutually fulfilling relationship. This depends on how they respect one another, where good communication between two people that are very different can take place.
