New views of the decline of the Mughals, expansion of the English East India Company's trade and urban settlements, and the role of the Indians in the politics and economics of early colonialism.
La dernière pièce de Copi, écrite sur son lit d'hôpital. Une comédie farce de la mort qui bascule en fête de l'amitié. " Il y a chez Copi une très grande discrétion devant ce sujet-bateau, sujet-gâteau, qu'est la mort. Au moyen d'écarts de dialogue, Copi fait basculer cette comédie-farce de la mort vers une fête de l'amitié, et en premier lieu de l'amitié qui attache les homosexuels. Car la pièce est là : dans le lien amical, fraternel de l'acteur Cyrille, condamné, et de son copain, Hubert, et dans l'alliance de charme et de cruauté par quoi ce vieux couple entreprend d'intercepter de la chair fraîche, un grand dadais de jeune homme qui se retrouve là, dans sa chambre. Mais Copi, insensiblement, divinement, fait danser les fils de son illusion, opéra, grand-guignol, cirque, tragédie. Tout cela d'une touche si légère...
Dans sa gaieté et sa modestie, Une visite inopportune est une pièce immense. Elle provoque le rire. Elle ratisse la détresse. C'est très rare, un sommet de théâtre comme celui-là. "
All of London is ablaze with rumors about the identity of Lady Scandal, a female brazen—and desperate—enough to advertise for a husband. But for Juliet, the young and surprisingly innocent widow, it’s her last option if she wants to avoid another marriage not of her choosing. Her prickly, pig-headed father has threatened to marry her off once again but this time Juliet is not without resources. She hopes the unentailed lands she possesses are enough to “bribe” some rich man to swoop in and save her from another unwanted union. And she has fingers and toes crossed she can find a potential bridegroom who will make her insides melt. Zeus Tanner, a self-made man from humble origins, has one driving goal—to reclaim his stolen birthright. When the scandalous advertisement catches his eye, Zeus believes he’s found the key to realizing his dream. But after surpassing the arduous task of obtaining an audience with the infamous Lady Scandal—who’s hidden herself behind a screen without explanation!—Zeus never imagined he’d be asked such a strange assortment of questions, given a test of manners over an atrocious scone, and ordered to disrobe and show her his chest—and “male parts”.
Zeus heartily refuses to comply with this last outrageous request. Un, he ponders out loud, the intriguing female is willing to trade her stockings and stays for the privilege… *MAD*WARNING* This Regency-era tale features flying slippers and stockings, a soaring silk neckcloth and silky undergarments, an unplanned eruption of epic proportions, and innocent licks that soon turn lust into love!
