This first book-length critical study of Jeremy Irons concentrates on his key performances and acting style. Through the analysis of some of the major screen roles in Irons' career, such as Brideshead Revisited, The French Lieutenant's Woman, Reversal of Fortune, Swann in Love, Dead Ringers, and Lolita, Mark Nicholls identifies a new masculine identity that unites them: 'the prince of perversion', an emblematic figure of the 1980s and 1990s presented as an alternative to the action hero or the common man. Using clear explanations of complex theoretical ideas, this book investigates Jeremy Irons's performances through the notion of perversion, both as sexual inversion and as a form of social rebellion, to uncover an entirely original but recognizable screen type.

Susan Hogan's poems are often poems of memory and history, of their palpable presence in the unfolding moment of our lives. They carry (accept) the weight of the world. More lament than complaint (who is there to complain to?), they offer the consolations of company, of humor and recognition. Family and community are necessary risks, tenderness a heightened tenderness, in a world of uncertainty and vulnerability. These poems tell the oldest stories in their newst language, at once highly original and old as the hills. -- Craig Hancock.
