The provoked wife by John Vanbrugh ( Book )
7 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this late Restoration comedy Vanbrugh not only pushes the unhappily married couple, which had been good for no more than a raucous subplot in earlier comedies of manners, centre-stage - he also makes the audience sympathise with the wife: The only thing Sir John and Lady Brute agree on is that they ought not to have married each other; now he spends his time in drunken debauchery with his cronies, while she tries to withstand the advances of her admirer Constant. After a series of farcical accidents involving cross-dressing and the eternal lover-in-the-wardrobe, the couple end where they be

Gundungurra country by James Leslie Smith ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis redefines, using new sources, the area originally occupied by Gundungurra speaking people, who lived south west of Sydney. The separate identities and areas occupied by about fifteen clans or sub-groups of the Gundungurra are defined. This is followed by a detailed study of the genealogies, and associations with country, of one clan, the Burra Burra. -- A large range of published and unpublished sources of Gundungurra mythological beliefs, and material purporting to represent their beliefs, is analysed to distinguish between traditional stories and text which has been added or altered by the recorders and retellers of these stories. Reliable material has been mapped in fine detail, locating scores of sites associated with Gundungurra mythology. These sites include places connected with the travels of the law-giving Bullun gods and the landscape creation activities of the "Rainbow Serpent" Gurangatch and his hunter Mirragan, the Quoll. Different men's and women's versions of some stories have been identified and an important women's mythological site associated with the Pleiades has been documented. -- A strong Gundungurra community survived in the Burragorang Valley until it was flooded in the 1950s. The genealogies of this community, their persistent history of land claims and their participation in voting is examined. -- Archival sources and the author's fieldwork are combined to create 21 detailed cultural landscape maps, showing hundreds of newly described traditional and post-contact sites important to the Gundungurra. These maps demonstrate the relationships between pre and post-contact ways of survival. The maps include many previously undocumented Gundungurra place names. Understanding of the true linguistic and mythological meanings of these provides a view into the way that Gundungurra people saw the landscape. Many Aboriginal travel routes and passes have been mapped. The visual presentation of the author's research in maps has been designed to make the findings more accessible to present-day people of Gundungurra descent
