If someone or something sails close to the wind, they take a risk by doing or saying something which almost breaks rules or laws. The analogy to sailing dangerously close to the wind began to be made in the nineteenth century

If someone or something sails close to the wind, they take a risk by doing or saying something which almost breaks rules or laws. Max warned her she was sailing dangerously close to the wind and risked prosecution. I have never known a comedy series to sail so close to the wind. The analogy to sailing dangerously close to the wind began to be made in the nineteenth century. It is heard less often today.

Frank Allenhi/ William Fox. Richard Bird. The Drawing-room of tho Caplans’ House at Clmntbury Close. I should like to call the attention of prospective producers of this play to the alternative version of the beginning and end, to be found on pages 68-70. This was wiitten for tho American producers, who did not care for the wireless play etlect in the original version. Perhaps it is neither so plausible nor ro amusing as tho original beginning, but it is simpler to produce, 1< as confusing, and allows a fow minutes’ dialogue before the black-out and the shot.

Richard III (1699) is a history play written by Colley Cibber. It is based on William Shakespeare's Richard III, but reworked for Williamite audiences. Cibber, a prominent theatre manager, first attempted to stage his version in 1699, but the performance was a disaster. The Master of the Revels censored the entire first act and the production was a popular and commercial failure. Cibber published the script in 1700, including the problematic act, with a short note on its suppression.

Oh, Cross said, giving a play-acting laugh. I think Mr. Houston’s close to the truth, Cross said, pretending a smile, relishing an irony that came from his referring both to his own feelings that maybe Houston was trying to track him down and to the aptness of the man’s remarks

Oh, Cross said, giving a play-acting laugh. But they were born that color. Houston’s close to the truth, Cross said, pretending a smile, relishing an irony that came from his referring both to his own feelings that maybe Houston was trying to track him down and to the aptness of the man’s remarks. After many of the restraints have been lifted from the Negro’s movements, and after certain psychological inhibitions have been overcome on his part, then the problem of the Negro in America really starts, not only for whites who will have to become acquainted with Negroes, but mainly for Negroes themselves.

Praise for Percival Everett: If Percival Everett isn’t already a household name, it’s because people are more interested in politics than truth . Publishers Weekly I think Percival Everett is a genius. I’ve been a fan since his first novel. Madison Smartt Bell, author of The Washington Square Ensemble Everett’s talent is multifaceted, sparked by a satiric brilliance that could place him alongside Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison.
