Further Reading


'I wanted this collection to be accessible but stretching, engaging but rigorous and to offer multiple entry points leading to lots of 'threads' for students to pursue. It offers all this and more. The variety of disciplines covered is simply extraordinary: it includes philosophy, religious studies, medicine and politics alongside the more obvious literary and cultural studies...Every essay, without exception is exquisitely written...collectively these essays inspire students to revisit the texts with new critical perspectives.' - THE Textbook Guide
