King Leer

by David P. Gontar (November 2016)

This article expands the redaction of Shakespeare’s play initiated in "Unreading Lear,” Chapter Four of Unreading Shakespeare, New English Review Press, 2015.

It’s always interesting to observe which dramatic elements catch our attention and which slip furtively by with downcast eyes as though they had something to hide. To be sure, we can’t focus on everything, but each omission risks overlooking something fruitful.  more>>>

A Tale of Two Kings: the Yellow Star Legend That Refuses to Die

by Norman Berdichevsky (November 2016)


King Christian X

The first week of October marked the 73rd anniversary of the rescue of Denmark’s Jewish population from the Holocaust by ferrying them to neutral Sweden. Lost amid the absurd denial of the Holocaust is a widely believed myth due largely to Hollywood, Leon Uris (author of the best-selling novel Exodus), minor Danish diplomatic personnel, wishful thinking, the BBC's research methods as well as to several prominent but sloppy historians who have written widely about the Holocaust but lacked adequate knowledge of the relevant languages, especially Danish.  more>>>

The Curious Tale of John Henry Patterson

by Geoffrey Clarfield (November 2016)

This article was written to honour and commemorate the birth of Lt. Colonel John Henry Patterson, DSO (10 November 1867 – 18 June 1947).
 

I had the pleasure of living and working in East Africa for 16 years. Our children spent much of their childhood there. As a family we were often on Safari, meaning that we would take our jeep, Land Rover, or Land Cruiser, pack up our tents, store food and camping equipment and go out into the bush of wild East Africa.  more>>>

What Lies Ahead?

by David P. Gontar (November 2016)

“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”  - Matthew 7:20

As we take stock of darkening days in the 21st century anxious eyes scan the horizon. To whom may we turn? Besides history, philosophy and theology, we  have also the deliverances of poetry. Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), who calls for “‘man’ to live poetically on the earth,” advances the view that it is in poetry that we align ourselves with the very nature of things.  more>>>

The Reactionary’s Guide to the 21st Century

by Bradford Tuckfield (November 2016)

For better or worse, there is plenty of labelling in American politics. All major politicians align themselves broadly with Left or Right by labelling themselves either liberal or conservative. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton had an argument earlier this year about which of them most deserved the label “progressive,” and which most deserved to be called “liberal.”  more>>>

What Do French Textbooks Teach About Islam?
clear

by Hugh Fitzgerald (November 2016)

The historian Barbara Lefebvre took it upon herself to find out what is taught about Islam to students in French middle and secondary schools. What she discovered was not surprising, but deeply disturbing nonetheless. And her close analysis may encourage others — in Germany, in Great Britain, in Sweden, in the U.S. – to engage in a similar examination of what young people in the West are now being taught about Islam.  more>>>

Tony Blair's Iraq War Confessions
clear

by Paul Austin Murphy (November 2016)

This piece is primarily based on Tony Blair's own words on the 2003 Iraq War. Most of the quotes come from Blair's autobiography, My Journey. The title is partly ironic if one bears in mind that Blair did indeed - fairly recently (e.g., October 2015) - confess his culpability in regards to Iraq and what went on to happen there post-2003 (e.g., the rise of the Islamic State, etc.). Nonetheless, these aren't the confessions I'm referring to.  more>>>

Wiesel Words

by Theodore Dalrymple (November 2016)

An old friend of an old friend of mine is now eighty-three years old. I too have known him for nearly fifty years, though only slightly. For the last four years he has become utterly fixated on or obsessed by Negationism, the denial that the Holocaust ever took place. In those four years he has accumulated a considerable library on the subject, perhaps five hundred books.  more>>>
