Summary

Alfred Tennyson's 'In Memoriam A. H. H.' is a poignant and introspective look at the author's grief over the death of his close friend, Arthur Henry Hallam. Written in the form of a long elegy consisting of 131 cantos, the poem delves into themes of love, loss, faith, and the passage of time. Tennyson's lyrical and emotive style, infused with rich imagery and deep philosophical musings, places 'In Memoriam A. H. H.' in the tradition of Romantic poetry, with echoes of Wordsworth and Keats. The poem is a powerful exploration of mourning and the quest for spiritual consolation in the face of loss. As Tennyson grapples with his own doubts and struggles, readers are invited to reflect on the nature of grief and the enduring power of friendship in the midst of life's uncertainties. Alfred Tennyson, the Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom during much of Queen Victoria's reign, drew on personal experiences and profound emotions to create this masterful work. With 'In Memoriam A. H. H.', Tennyson crafted a timeless elegy that continues to resonate with readers today, offering solace and insight into the complexities of human emotion and the enduring nature of memory and love.

    Featuring new translations of previously untranslated Chinese short stories, Memorandum maps out seven decades of Sinophone Singaporean Literature. From bargirls to student activists, from trishaw men to tea merchants, this collection provides a glimpse into a world that has been previously invisible to Anglophone readers. Paired with critical essays, these stories showcase the richness and diversity of Singapore’s Chinese community, but also its inherent interconnectedness with other cultures within Singapore. 
     
    “Memorandum is a pathbreaking anthology that refracts over half a century of Singapore’s history through its lens. The translated stories do much more than simply bridge Sinophone and Anglophone worlds: they actively cross geographical, cultural, linguistic and class boundaries, causing us to think more deeply about the nature of social power, and the transformative interventions literary texts can make.” 
    -Philip Holden, scholar of Singapore &Southeast Asian literatures

    Three classic plays exploring the absurdity of death and modern complacency by the 20th century master of French avant-garde theatre. 
     
    Exit the King presents a ritualized death rite unfolding the final hours of the once-great king Berenger the First. As he dies, so does his kingdom. His armies suffer defeat, the young emigrate, and his kingdom’s borders shrink to the outline of his throne. 
     
    The Killer is a study of pure evil. B’renger, a conscientious citizen, finds himself in a radiantly beautiful city marred only by the presence of a serial killer. B’renger’s determination to find the murderer in the face of official indifference and his final defeat at the hands of impersonal cruelty speak with the power of Kafka’s The Trial. 
     
    Macbett, inspired by Shakespeare’s MacBeth, is “a grotesque joke . . . [and] a very funny play. . . . Ionecso maliciously undermines sources and traditions, spoofing Shakespeare along with tragedy” (Mel Gussow, The New York Times).
