The Kilmarnock Burns And Book History, Patrick Scott 2017 University of South Carolina - Columbia

The Kilmarnock Burns And Book History, Patrick Scott

Patrick Scott

Based on the recent census of the surviving copies of Robert Burns's first book, Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect (Kilmarnock, 1786) (Young and Scott, 2017), discusses and illustrates the different forms in which it has been preserved, contrasting the original wrappers with later fine bindings, but also illustrating several contemporary bindings with which the original owners replaced the temporary wrappers, suggesting that these give a better indication of the social range of Burns's first readers.


The Absent Father In Jane Eyre, Lauren Megan Epperson 2017 Murray State University

The Absent Father In Jane Eyre, Lauren Megan Epperson

Steeplechase

The novel Jane Eyre was originally published as an autobiography by Charlotte Brontë, under the pseudonym Currer Bell. The heroine of this novel is widely celebrated as a proponent of feminist ideals, and as such, this paper is designed to examine the role of the patriarchy in Victorian English through the novel. The focus of this inquiry is the importance of the “father figure,” for young women, as means of protection, developing social identities, and securing, financially, a future. This paper, then, is an examination of the ramifications, i.e. the physical and verbal abuse, gross negligence, and poverty, Jane ...

Joseph Holland And The Idea Of The Chaucerian Book, Megan L. Cook 2017 Colby College

Joseph Holland And The Idea Of The Chaucerian Book, Megan L. Cook

Manuscript Studies

The antiquarian Joseph Holland (d. 1605) owned a large, but damaged, Chaucerian manuscript from the early fifteenth century (now Cambridge University Library Gg.4.27). Holland recognized in the manuscript an effort to construct a collection based on Chaucerian authorship, and he repaired and added to it using a copy of the 1598 printed edition of Chaucer's collected Works. From this edition, he took not only the text of Chaucer's poems, but paratextual materials as well, including a glossary, biographical information, and a frontispiece. His activities reveal how a distinctly post-medieval understanding of what the collected works of ...

Wwabd? Intersectional Futures In Digital History, Tonya L. Howe 2017 Marymount University

Wwabd? Intersectional Futures In Digital History, Tonya L. Howe

ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830

WWABD: What would Aphra Behn—world traveler and spy, playwright and poet of scandal, innovator of novelistic forms—do, were she to imagine a future for digital humanities in period-specific scholarship? This essay outlines a vision for the DH section of Aphra Behn Online: An Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830. In particular, I see three important and interrelated places for development: theorizing the feminized labor of digital recovery, editing, and textual preparation; offering thoughtful and feminist approaches to digital pedagogy that are specific to the work we do in the period; and critically assessing the absences in ...
