  • The London Adventure: Or, The Art of Wandering

    The London Adventure is often considered to be Arthur Machen's third volume of autobiography, but its alternative title, The Art of Wandering, differentiates it from Far Off Things and Things Near and Far. The term 'wandering' refers not only to Machen's many and various journeys around the unconsidered byways of London, but also to the curiously meandering construction of the book. Machen plays a fine game with the reader, discussing what his book might be about, how he should begin it and where it might end. The result is a curiously up-to-date psychogeographical manifesto, written, as always, in the author's beautiful prose. Added to the original text of The London Adventure are a number of essays, several uncollected, which inform and illustrate Machen's contention that, "All the wonders lie within a stone's-throw of King's Cross Station." Contents: Introduction; The London Adventure. From the London Evening News: The Night Sky of London, Peter Pan, The Enchanted City, A Night on the Thames, Wonderful London, A Study in Back Streets, More about Back Streets. Wonderful London: Some of Its Unwritten Laws, London in Brave Attire, When I was Young in London, London Thirty Years Ago, The Young Man in the Blue Serge Suit, The Joy of London, Re-Discovery of London, Sunday Night in London, A Night at the Cafe Royal, Night in London, How Spring Came to Kew, I Recommend a House, Ghosts of the Strand, Hornsey House of Nightmares, Racketty Ghost Breaks Out Again, Bertie's Banging Ghost.

  • Shakespeare's Dark Lady: Amelia Bassano Lanier the woman behind Shakespeare's plays?

    Elizabeth I. At about the age of thirteen, she became mistress to the fiftysix-year-old Lord Hunsdon, Henry VIII’s reputed son by Mary Boleyn. As Lord Chamberlain, Hunsdon was in charge of the English theatre and would become the patron of the company that performed the Shakespearean plays. Amelia lived with him for a decade, during which time she also had an affair with the playwright Christopher Marlowe. When she became pregnant, Amelia was exiled from court and next surfaces as the mysterious ‘dark lady’ in Shakespeare’s sonnets. At the age of forty-two, she became the first woman to publish a book of original poetry, employing linguistic features resembling the later Shakespearean plays. Amelia died in poverty in 1645. Drawing upon a wealth of documentary evidence, this controversial and provocative book unites Tudor history, feminism, and Shakespeare scholarship to demonstrate that Amelia Bassano was in all the right places and had all the right knowledge, skills, and contacts to have produced the Shakespearean canon.

  • The Life of Arthur Machen

    In the 1930s Arthur Machen was approaching the end of a long literary career when the poet John Gawsworth cast himself as Machen’s Boswell. Gawsworth industriously recorded details of his mentor’s life and work, composing a major biography that contained a wealth of previously unknown detail. However, it remained unpublished until 2005, when it was made available to the Friends of Arthur Machen as a limited edition hardback. This new paperback reprint is designed to reach a wider audience. Gawsworth vividly charts the story of ‘the flower-tunicked priest of nightmare’, from Machen’s idyllic childhood amid the beauties of Monmouthshire, through the lonely, poverty-stricken years in London that later inspired those lyrical masterpieces The Hill of Dreams and Far Off Things. Machen’s joyous days as a ‘strolling player’ are contrasted with his troubled time as the star reporter on the London Evening News, as he watched in astonishment as his minor tale ‘The Bowmen’ blossomed into the enduring wartime legend of the Angels of Mons. Then, in the 1920s, Machen was transformed into a cult figure in the United States and acclaimed as an artistic genius by authors such as Vincent Starrett, James Branch Cabell and Ben Hecht. Gawsworth himself fell on hard times later in life, and in his Introduction Barry Humphries, who knew him in the 1960s, reflects on the ageing poet’s decline into alcoholism and penury, when all he had to sustain him were his memories of past glories. Reviews 'Excellently edited by Roger Dobson who displays an impressive knowledge of Machen . . . is an extraordinary achievement'. Phil Baker, Times Literary Supplement 'Sumptuous.'
