Renaissance clothing and the materials of memory by Ann Rosalind Jones( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) During the late sixteenth century 'fashion' first took on the sense of restless change in contrast to the older sense of fashioning or making. As fashionings, clothes were perceived as material forms of personal and social identity which made the man or woman. In Renaissance Clothing and the Materials of Memory Jones and Stallybrass argue that the making and transmission of fabrics and clothing were central to the making of Renaissance culture. Their examination explores the role of clothes as forms of memory transmitted from master to servant, from friend to friend, from lover to lover. This book offers a close reading of literary texts, paintings, textiles, theatrical documents, and ephemera to reveal how clothing and textiles were crucial to the making and unmaking of concepts of status, gender, sexuality, and religion in the Renaissance. The book is illustrated with a wide range of images from portraits to embroidery. Winner of The 2001 James Russell Lowell Prize, for 'an outstanding book by a member of the Modern Language Association.

The volume unites some of the most challenging issues in contemporary Renaissance studies and some of our best-known critics, including Stephen Orgel, Margaret Ferguson, Catherine Belsey, Jonathan Goldberg, Marjorie Garber, Lisa Jardine, and Jonathan Dollimore-- demonstrating the variety and vitality not only of contemporary criticism, but of Renaissance drama itself

Native American words, early American texts by John Pollack( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study follows words from the languages of Native American peoples that appeared in printed and manuscript accounts by Europeans in the first years of American colonization. I present a cultural bibliography of Native languages from the late fifteenth through the mid-sixteenth centuries, examining the contexts of publication and circulation of texts that include Native words. When were Native words and phrases first written and printed? Who may have been responsible for their appearance and disappearance, their transcription, their printing, and their circulation? Why did they appear in some texts and documents and not in others? How did such words function in texts? How might our readings of them change our understandings of Native-European contact and colonization? My case studies include the word canoa, one of the first loanwords from the American Native language now called "Taino"; Guanahani, the purported name of the island on which Christopher Columbus and his crew first arrived in 1492; and the controversial word cannibal, the meanings of which were debated in European sources during the 1490s. Alongside Native words, I trace references to "conversation" between Europeans and Natives. Europeans needed to converse in order to gain vital information for trade and settlement and hence were dependent, to an extent, upon Native words. European writers take the willingness of Native peoples to engage in conversation as a marker of civility and take language variations as indicative of political divisions between peoples. Texts I analyze include versions of the letter recounting Columbus's first transatlantic voyage and reports by Italian merchants, diplomats, chroniclers, and scholars relating to the first and second Spanish expeditions. I study the letters attributed to Amerigo Vespucci alongside the imaginary American alphabet printed in Thomas More's Utopia. I conclude with a comparison of word lists printed in Peter Martyr d'Anghiera's De Orbe novo and in narratives of Jacques Cartier's expeditions to the St. Lawrence River valley in the 1530s
A portable feast : the production and use of the thirteenth-century portable bible 1200-1500 by Alexander L Devine( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation celebrates the portable one-volume Latin Vulgate bibles produced on an unprecedented scale during the 13th century, particularly between 1230 and 1280, emphasizing their particular significance within the contexts of medieval book production and medieval bible use. The profound changes that these bibles implemented to the physical appearance and format of the Bible (as compact and portable copies of the complete biblical text), generated great innovations in the function and use of the Bible, and were directly responsible for the 13th-century portable bible's extraordinary success and enduring popularity, in its own time and in ours, and thus their privileged place in the history of the Bible and the broader histories of medieval manuscripts and the Book
Making English memorial literatures, 1500-1700 by Alan Niles( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation charts a literary and cultural history of memorialization in England between about 1500 and 1700, a period when writing assumes a more socially and symbolically central role in responding to loss. Attending to the material practices of mourning and commemoration as they take place through writing alongside other media including cloth, stone, jewelry, and physical displays of grief, this project describes the shaping influences of a larger material culture on poetic practices and forms. Occasional, brief, even routine memorial poems, I argue, are invested with a distinct form of pre-modern literary value tied to these texts’ ability to overlay intimate social networks with the largest historical and political imaginaries. By focusing on unfamiliar or unexpected archival survivals alongside the canonical elegies and epitaphs of major authors, this dissertation revises and expands our categories of both “text” and “literature.” The broadly diffused culture of memory it describes traverses boundaries of class and gender as well as of the exceptional and the everyday
Romantic periodicals and the invention of the living author by Christine Marie Woody( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation asks how the burgeoning market of magazines, book reviews, and newspapers shapes the practice and meaning of authorship during the Romantic period. Surveying the innovations in and conventions of British periodical culture between 1802 and 1830, this study emphasizes the importance of four main periodicals—the Edinburgh Review, Quarterly Review, London Magazine, and Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine—to the period’s understanding of what it means to be, or read, an author who is still living. In it, I argue that British periodicals undertook a project to theorize, narrativize, and regulate the deceptively simple concept of a living author. Periodicals confronted the inadequacy of their critical methods in dealing with the living and came to define the “living author” as a disturbing model for the everyday person—an encouragement to self-display and a burden on public attention. Through their engagement with this disruptive figure, periodical writers eventually found in it a potential model for their own contingent, anonymous work, and embraced the self-actualizing possibilities that this reviled figure unexpectedly offered. My chapters survey crises and scandals in the periodical sphere; from the famous attacks on John Keats and Leigh Hunt, to the dismissal of female novelists like Fanny Burney, to the uproar over the political apostasies of William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey. Through a critical look at the book-reviewing project and other responses to living authors, I argue that the Romantic periodical invented living authorship as practice rather than ontology, emphasizing the importance of body, habit, and iterative performance to its significance
