Christiana Herringham and the Edwardian art scene by Mary Lago( file )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,482 libraries worldwide
"Christiana Herringham (1852-1929), an expert copyist of the Italian Old Masters, was an extraordinary and accomplished women. Her achievements required a delicate balance, for she had to negotiate old Victorian restrictions in order 'to find and fortify a place for herself' in a male-dominated spheres of fine-art administration and public service...A distinguished Edwardian scholar, Mary Lago has used her knowledge of the cultural history of the period to bring significant insight into the personal and professional conflicts Lady Herringham faced during a time of limited opportunities for women. Lago also discusses the issue of nationalism in art and the role of colonial imperialism in defining and preserving art. As a postscript, she presents the fascinating possibility that Christian Herringham's experience may have inspired the character of Mrs Moore in E.M. Forester's 'A Passage to India' " -- Jacket
India's prisoner a biography of Edward John Thompson, 1886-1946 by Mary Lago( file )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,236 libraries worldwide
Edward John Thompson & mdash;novelist, poet, journalist, and historian of India & mdash;was a liberal advocate for Indian culture and political self-determination at a time when Indian affairs were of little general interest in England. As a friend of Nehru, Gandhi, and other Congress Party leaders, Thompson had contacts that many English officials did not have and did not know how to get. Thus, he was an excellent channel for interpreting India to England and England to India. Thompson first went to India in 1910 as a Methodist missionary to teach English literature at Bankura Wesleyan College. It was there that he cultivated the literary circle of Rabindranath Tagore, as yet little known in England, and there Thompson learned of the political contradictions and deficiencies of India's educational system. His major conflict, personal and professional, was the lingering influence of Victorian Wesleyanism. In 1923, Thompson resigned and returned to teach at Oxford. Interest in South Asia studies was minimal at Oxford, and Thompson turned increasingly to writing Indian history. That work, and his unique account of his experiences in the Mesopotamian campaign in World War I, supply a viewpoint found nowhere else, as well as personal views of literary figures such as Robert Graves and Robert Bridges. Thompson was also a major influence on the work of his son, E.P. Thompson, a modern historian of eighteenth-century England. This important biography covers politically significant events between Thompson's arrival in India and up to his death, and casts considerable light on Thompson and his struggles with his religion and his relationship with India. The first biography of E.J. Thompson, "India's Prisoner" will have widespread appeal, especially to those interested in South Asian and English history, literature, and cultural history

E.M. Forster : a literary life by Mary Lago( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 674 libraries worldwide
This series offers stimulating accounts of the literary careers of the most admired and influential English-language authors. Volumes follow the outline of writers' working lives, not in the spirit of traditional biography, but aiming to trace the professional, publishing and social contexts which shaped their writing. The role and status of 'the author' as the creator of literary texts is a vexed issue in current critical theory, where a variety of social, linguistic and psychological approaches have challenged the old concentration on writers as specially gifted individuals. Yet reports of 'the death of the author' in literary studies are (as Mark Twain said of a premature obituary) an exaggeration. This series aims to demonstrate how an understanding of writers' careers can promote, for students and general readers alike, a more informed historical reading of their works
