The Classics Exposed... One of the world's best loved books, Jane Eyre, is retold with scorching passion... Mystery, betrayal, scandal, and a love that transcends time... There was only him... From the moment Jane Eyre sets eyes on her one and true master, Mr. Rochester, her life is irrevocably changed. The tall, dark man is an enigma, complex, deep, compelling, frightening, and tempting beyond compare. This stern, unyielding man brooks no refusal and demands all of what Jane has to offer as he invites her on a journey of the senses that would scandalise society. He demands her abject surrender. In his strong and athletic arms, Jane submits to his darkest desires and discovers hers are every bit as searing, plunging her into a world she never suspected and never wants to escape. The thrilling and beloved novel is perhaps more relevant today than it ever was. Jane Eyre's struggles to live a life of grand passion, compromising nothing, willing to sacrifice everything for what she believes, resonates with the modern woman's struggles to have it all, to be it all, and to love with uncompromising abandon.

Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries have sparked intense fan activity and generated a large quantity of fan fiction: stories which test the limits of an already existing fictional work and explore gaps and discrepancies within it. Working from the idea that texts constitute archives, expanded and altered by each addition, close readings of a selection of fanfics illustrate particular transformative practices in the online environment. The central figure of the vampire is read through the lens of fanfic authors’ contributions to the archives, particularly regarding how figuratively or literally refanged versions of the trope are used to subvert norms established in the source texts concerning depictions of sexuality, sexual practices, and monstrosity. Complex relationships between authorial power and subversion, between mainstream messages and individual interpretations, are examined through fanfic analyses, the findings contributing to discussions about contemporary literary creativity.

Scholarly understanding of the notion of public opinion in France has suffered, and suffers still, from some serious misconceptions. Chief of these is the belief that its prominence in the decades prior to the Revolution and talk of a 'tribunal' that passed judgement on kings as on other men was part of the assault that eventually doomed the monarchy. The 'tribunal' metaphor was already familiar in the middle years of the seventeenth century and remained a relative commonplace, in no way hostile to monarchy, in the early eighteenth century and after. Failure to consult antecedents of the language of the 1770s has turned a form of discourse, often put to conservative ends, into the harbinger of violent change. A second misreading of political language ignores the fact that in the French usage of this period, public opinion divided was no public opinion at all; therein lies the considerable divergence between�l'opinion publique�and Anglo-Saxon public opinion. Our modern understanding takes for granted that there are many opinions and many publics; not so the French political tradition as recounted here. This, it should be noted, fits well with a Jacobin tyranny of the majority, but long antedates the extremists of the Revolution.� In this volume J.A.W. Gunn presents a lively context for discussion about public opinion, emphasising the recognition of opinion as a resource vital for the support of the monarchy and the fortunes of the nobility.�
