Lord Byron and the History of Desire

Lord Byron and the History of Desire uses Eric Gans's "generative anthropology" and Rene Girard's theory of imitative desire to interpret Byron's major literary works. It argues that the poet learned something about centrality, identity, and desire through the course of his career, and was able to write his knowledge in ways that might still be interesting to us. He learned that there were new things that it was possible, or necessary, to want, new strategies available for obtaining them, and with these, new risks, new losses, new problems. But what he provides in some of his poetry is not just historical insight. His best poetry is also, still, and perhaps most rewardingly, a demonstration or modeling of behaviors and attitudes that work well in a market world. The most valuable transfers in this world are effected through imitation, and through strengthening and inspiring alfiances. Byron provides both, modeling and alliance, in return--fundamental bargain--for our attention, the price of his poems. This book examines the transaction, inquires into its workings, and asks why the price seemed, and might still seem, worth paying.

Byron and Place

This new study of Byron explores the 'geo-historical' - places where historically significant events have occurred. Cheeke examines the ways in which the notion of being there becomes the central claim and shaping force in Byron's poetry up to 1818. He goes on to explore the concept of being in-between which characterises Byron's 1818-21 poetry. Finally, Byron's complex nostalgia for England, his sense of having been there , is read in relation to a broader critique of memory, home-sickness and place-attachment.

Expiate. Bring to an end. Cf. Rich. III. iii. 3. 23: "Make haste; the hour of death is expiate." Here, as there, Steevens conjectures "expirate," which White and Hudson adopt. Surely there is no need of coining a word to replace one which S. twice uses and which can be plausibly explained. Malone quotes Chapman's Byron's Conspiracie, in which an old courtier speaks of himself as " A poor and expiate humour of the court." XXIII 1. Vnperfect. Used by S. only here; but unperfectness occurs in Oth. ii. 3. 298. Imperfect we find in Sonn. 43. 11 and elsewhere, and imperfection six times in the plays. On the present passage, cf. Cor. v. 3. 40: --"Like a dull actor now, I have forgot my part, and I am out, Even to a full disgrace." 2. Besides. For the prepositional use, cf. T.

Schmidt makes it = " doubting of being trusted;" but the context clearly confirms the explanation I have given.

Hudson says that the word "is here used as a trisyllable, as if spelt cer'mony;" but how he would scan the verse I cannot imagine. The word is clearly a quadrisyllable, as almost always in S. 9.

The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty

More than two centuries after Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian led a mutiny against Lieutenant William Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called Bounty, the true story of this enthralling adventure has become obscured by the legend. Combining vivid characterization and deft storytelling, Caroline Alexander shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this story. She brilliantly shows how, in a desperate attempt to save one man from the gallows and another from ignominy, two powerful families came together and began to create the version of history we know today. The true story of the mutiny on the Bounty is an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave man’s honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.

The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley takes stock of current developments in the study of a major Romantic poet and prose-writer, and seeks to advance Shelley studies beyond the current state of scholarship. It consists of forty-two chapters written by a prestigious internationalcast of established and emerging scholar-critics, and offers the most wide-ranging single-volume body of writings on Shelley. The volume builds on the textual revolution in Shelley studies, which has transformed understanding of the poet, as critics are able to focus on what Shelley actually wrote. This Handbook is divided into five thematic sections: Biography and Relationships; Prose; Poetry; Cultures, Traditions, Influences; and Afterlives. The first section reappraises Shelley's life and relationships, including those with his publishers through whom he sought to reach an audience for the'Ashes and sparks' of his thought, and with women, creative collaborators as well as muse-figures; the second section gives his under-investigated prose works detailed attention, bringing multiple perspectives to bear on his shifting and complex conceptual positions, and demonstrating the range ofhis achievement in prose works from novels to political and poetic treatises; the third section explores Shelley's creativity and gift as a poet, emphasizing his capacity to excel in many different poetic genres; the fourth section looks at Shelley's response to past and contemporary literarycultures, both English and international, and at his immersion in science, music, theatre, the visual arts, and tourism and travel; the fifth section concludes the volume by analysing Shelley's literary and cultural afterlife, from his influence on Victorians and Moderns, to his status as theexemplary poet for Deconstruction. The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley brings out the relevance to Shelley's own work of his dictum that 'All high poetry is infinite' and shows how he continues to generate original critical responses.

This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a generous selection of Clare's poetry and prose, including autobiographical writings and letters. John Clare (1793-1864) is now recognized as one of the greatest English Romantic poets, after years of indifference and neglect. Clare was an impoverished agricultural labourer, whose genius was generally not appreciated by his contemporaries, and his later mental instability further contributed to his loss of critical esteem. But the extraordinary range of his poetical gifts has restored him to the company of his contemporaries Byron, Keats, and Shelley, and this fine selection illustrates all aspects of his talent. It contains poems from all stages of his career, including love poetry, and bird and nature poems. Written in his native Northamptonshire, Clare's work provides a fascinating reflection of rural society, often underscored by his own sense of isolation and despair. Clare's writings are here presented with the minimum of editorial interference, and with a new Introduction by the poet and scholar Tom Paulin.

Mr. Nicholas Melrose, Vorstand seiner eigenen Anwaltskanzlei und ein angesehener Mann, liess sich nicht gern aus der Fassung bringen. Er war es nicht gewohnt, und es war seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr vorgekommen. Einigermassen verstimmt sah er das Mädchen auf der anderen Seite seines imponierend grossen Schreibtisches streng an. Wie konnte sie sich unterstehen, ihn ans dem gewohnten Gleis zu bringen? Rebecca Carville starrte ihn an, dann schüttelte sie den Kopf. Sie bückte sich, um ihre Tasche aufzuheben. Melrose beobachtete sie. Langes kastanienbraunes Haar, elegant und ungebändigt zugleich, fiel über die Schultern des Mädchens. Sie strich es zurück und schaute dabei flüchtig hoch zu Melrose. Ihre Augen funkelten. Sie ist schön, dachte Melrose, beunruhigend schön. Er seufzte. Er fuhr mit den Fingern durch das sich lichtende Haar, dann strich er sich über seinen Wanst.

Für sein eher als langes Gedicht denn als Bühnenstück gedachtes Drama griff Lord Byron (1788–1824) auf ein historisches Ereignis zurück: Unter dem Dogen Francesco Foscari erlebte Venedig seine höchste Machtentfaltung, geriet jedoch in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten. Nach Auseinandersetzung um Foscaris Sohn Jacopo, der wegen Hochverrats in Haft war und dort starb, wurde der Doge am 21. Oktober 1457 vom Rat der Stadt des Amtes enthoben und starb kurz darauf. Giuseppe Verdi diente das Drama als Vorlage für seine 1844 aufgeführte Oper »I due Foscari«.

Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.

Lord Byron (1788–1824) verfasste dieses Drama 1821, in dem er auf die biblische Geschichte von Kain und Abel zurückgreift, diese aber grundlegend veränderte. Kain ist nun ein Empörer gegen den Sündenfall, mit dem Gott zum Verursacher allen menschlichen Leids geworden ist. Luzifer erkennt in Kain einen Mitstreiter in seinem Kampf gegen Gott und stachelt dessen Hass noch weiter an. Als Kain schließlich auf seinen fanatisch gläubigen Bruder Abel trifft, kann sich Kain gegen dessen Glaubensfuror nur noch durch den fatalen Brudermord wehren.
