In his career as a pirate, the question becomes for Captain Singleton whether he can trust the hoisting of the white flag, and in Ceylon he is betrayed, since "I thought all Nations in the World, even the most savage People, when they held out a Flag of Peace, kept the Offer of Peace made by that Signal, very sacredly." Thus Defoe reminds us of the necessity for some bonding fiction between peoples, but characteristically leaves the answer up in the air. Defoe's social prescriptions are rendered perhaps more clearly than elsewhere in A Journal of the Plague Year, which in some ways is Defoe's -47- most satisfying book. The general strategy is to ask us to imagine a circumstance in which ordinary human life comes to a standstill (a plague, which I think Defoe presents as a metaphor for the South Sea Bubble that had ruined thousands the year before Defoe's book appeared) and thus to reimagine the terms by which we bond to survive. Two features stand out. First, Defoe incorporates a long digression involving three men-John, Thomas, and Richard — who succeed in saving a group of refugees from the plague-stricken city by illegally leading them outside the city confines to Epping ...

|Oxford World's Classics: Selected Poems|
In the Paris of the belle epoque, Apollinaire' s prolific writing - poems, short stories, erotic novels, art criticism - as well as his magnetic personality brought him fame and even some notoriety. His two great collections of poetry, Alcools and Calligrammes, made his reputation, and they include love poems as well as the war poetry for which he is best known. Apollinaire coined the word ' surrealism' , and he led the literary and artistic avant-garde right up to his death two days before the Armistice, weakened by injuries received earlier in the War. This new selection by Martin Sorrell covers the full range of Apollinaire' s career, and includes some of the poet' s inventive pictorial calligrams. The introduction and notes explore his seminal role in the culture of the twentieth century. Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) is the most significant French poet of early modernism, and the most colourful. His exuberant, adventurous poetry matched the eventful times through which he lived, and his experimentalism heralded a new artistic order.

|Oxford World's Classics: Heracles and Other Plays|
The blood-soaked Heracles portrays deep emotional pain and undeserved suffering; its demand for a more humanistic ethics in the face of divine indifference and callousness makes it one of Euripides' more popular and profound plays. Children of Heracles is a rich and complex work, famous for its dialogues and monologues, in which the effects of war on refugees and the consequences of sheltering them are movingly explored. In Cyclops Euripides takes the familiar story of Odysseus' escape from the Cyclops Polyphemus and turns it to hilarious comic effect. Euripides' other plays are all available in Oxford World' s Classics.
