      Now available from the Mythopoeic Press: The Masques of Amen House by
      Charles Williams.
      Charles Williams worked as an editor of the Oxford University Press (OUP),
      whose London offices were in a building called Amen House. In the 1920s,
      Williams wrote three short plays (masques) celebrating the work of the
      Press, two of which were performed by Williams and his co-workers for the
      entertainment of the OUP staff. The first play, The Masque of the
      Manuscript, traces the development of a manuscript to a published book; The
      Masque of Perusal deals with the sale of the book; in The Masque of the
      Termination of Copyright, the book is rediscovered and reprinted. These
      plays display Williams�s wit, charm, and sense of humor. Also included in
      The Masques of Amen House: Williams�s poems relating to the masques,
      selections from the music written by Hubert Foss for the stage productions,
      and extensive commentary by Bernadette Bosky and David Bratman about
      Williams and the masques.
