George Eliot Birthday Lucheon: The Toast To The Immortal Memory, Ted Veasey Nov 1990

George Eliot Birthday Lucheon: The Toast To The Immortal Memory, Ted Veasey

The George Eliot Review

As a local historian I have been thinking to what extent did George Eliot portray Nuneaton - more especially in her most local book Scenes o/Clerical Life - and how good a historian was she in this work.

Essential dates, first of all. George Eliot was born in 1819 and wrote Scenes in 1857- 58. She sets the events of Amos Barton and J and s Repentance some 25 years before the date of writing; that is roughly 1830 when she was a young girl of some eleven years of age. Mr. Gilfil' s Love Story starts in 1820 but really ...

Review Of Philippa Berry, Of Chastity And Power: Elizabethan Literature And The Unmarried Queen, Carole Levin Oct 1990

Review Of Philippa Berry, Of Chastity And Power: Elizabethan Literature And The Unmarried Queen, Carole Levin

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Phillippa Berry has written a solidly researched and ambitious study of the impact of Elizabeth I and the cult of the Virgin Queen on Elizabethan literature. Berry's stated goal is to clarify contradictory relations of gender in the discourses of idealized love of Petrarchan love poetry and Neoplatonic philosophy, which so much influenced Renaissance literature. Berry wishes to explore the interrelationship between the love discourses and the cult of Elizabeth. As her title suggest, Berry is concerned to examine a number of literary texts that intertwine issues of sexual and political power. She argues that in sixteenth-century France as ...


Westminster Abbey Wreath-Laying Jun 1990

Westminster Abbey Wreath-Laying

The George Eliot Review

June 1990 marked the tenth anniversary of the unveiling of the memorial stone to George Eliot in Poets' Corner. The anniversary service was held as closely in content as possible to the one ten years earlier and our Guest of Honour was the Revd. Dr. EDW ARD CARPENTER K.C. V.O. who, as Dean of Westminster in 1980, conducted our service on that important day and had also been very much a part of our negotiations with the Abbey long before the project came to fruition. We have affectionate memories of our association with him during that time and ...


Wreath-Laying In The George Eliot Memorial Gardens, Nuneaton On June 17th 1990, Hilda Gunn Jun 1990

Wreath-Laying In The George Eliot Memorial Gardens, Nuneaton On June 17th 1990, Hilda Gunn

The George Eliot Review

I count it a great honour to be here to pay tribute to George Eliot and especially as it is shortly to be the Diamond Jubilee of the Fellowship, founded by the late Francis Cross in 1930.

I cannot claim to be the oldest member, either in years or in length of membership, but my first introduction to George Eliot the novelist goes back even more than sixty years. As a jubilee is not only a time of rejoicing but of looking back, I would like to share with you some of my recollections.

In October 1927 I began to ...


The All Souls Deuteronomy And The Decalogue, Sidnie White Crawford Jun 1990

The All Souls Deuteronomy And The Decalogue, Sidnie White Crawford

Faculty Publications, Classics and Religious Studies Department

4QDtn, the All Souls Deuteronomy, is the best-preserved of all the Deuteronomy manuscripts from Cave 4, Qumran. A photograph and partial translation of the manuscript were published by Frank Moore Cross in 1969 in the catalogue "Scrolls from the Wilderness of the Dead Sea." The manuscript consists of four complete columns and two partially damaged columns. Columns 2-6 are one continuous sheet of leather, with a sewn edge on col. 2. Column 1 has two sewn edges and was originally attached to the beginning of col. 2 (the columns were separated in the process of restoration). The manuscript was well ...

Hermeneutica Gloriae Vs. Hermeneutica Crucis: Sebastian Franck And Martin Luther On The Clarity Of Scripture, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Apr 1990

Hermeneutica Gloriae Vs. Hermeneutica Crucis: Sebastian Franck And Martin Luther On The Clarity Of Scripture, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

Martin Luther maintains throughout his work, and with special emphasis in On the Bondage of the Will, that Scripture is clear. Unlike Erasmus, who warns that we should avoid obscure parts of Scripture that, like the Cave of Corycos, would lure us too close to terrors beyond our comprehension, Luther argues that Scripture has been placed in the clearest light by the coming of Christ, in whom all of Scripture's mysteries have been revealed. If we were to look for a contemporary of Luther's to represent the opposite pole, the obscurity or ambiguity of Scripture, it would not ...

Review Of Susan Dwyer Amussen, An Ordered Society: Gender And Class In Early Modern England, Carole Levin Apr 1990

Review Of Susan Dwyer Amussen, An Ordered Society: Gender And Class In Early Modern England, Carole Levin

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Susan Dwyer Amussen has produced an extremely well-researched and gracefully written study on gender and class in early modern England. Amussen describes her work as in part a response to and continuation of the issues raised by the early classic study of Alice Clark, Working Life of Women in the Seventeenth Century. Amussen argues that "Clark's mistaken placement of the change from household to capitalist production in the seventeenth cen- tury - at least a century before it actually took place - makes it incumbent on students of early modern England to continue to study the family as the fundamental economic ...


George Eliot Fellowship Annual General Meeting- Treasurer's Report Mar 1990

George Eliot Fellowship Annual General Meeting- Treasurer's Report

The George Eliot Review

This being my first report to you as Treasurer I would like to begin by thanking my predecessor, Brenda Evans, for her initial instruction into the nature of the job, for her continuing help throughout the year and for her patience in forwarding mail for the time it took to get addresses sorted out. I would also like to thank your Council and especially your Secretary, Kathleen, for their help and understanding towards a "new boy".

Turning now to the accounts, you will see that I have made some changes to the presentation. In particular, at the left hand side ...


Evaluating Uv Absorbers , Patricia Cox Crews, David J. Clark Mar 1990

Evaluating Uv Absorbers , Patricia Cox Crews, David J. Clark

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

UV absorbers and antioxidants topically applied to upholstery fabrics to reduce fading, separately and in conjunction with soil repellent finish formulations containing UV absorbers, were evaluated in this study. Over fifty upholstery fabrics were initially evaluated and fourteen were selected for further study. The fabrics were then topically treated with commercially available soil repellent finishes (a fluorocarbon and a silicone finish) containing UV absorbers or immersion-treated with one of thirteen UV absorbers or antioxidants. Following light exposure, color changes were evaluated visually and instrumentally. The results showed that neither the fluorocarbon nor silicone-based soil repellent finishes containing UV absorbers significantly ...


The Place Of Archery In Greek Warfare, Thomas Nelson Winter Feb 1990

The Place Of Archery In Greek Warfare, Thomas Nelson Winter

Faculty Publications, Classics and Religious Studies Department

Despite the ancient Greek equivalent of an Agincourt, the Greek military mind firmly retained the heavy infantry, rather than the archers, as the main force. Recognized uses of the archer in Greek warfare were to fend off heights of city walls, to perform commando raids, and to provide covering fire for commando-style operations. This essay, written after a fresh reading of the principle Greek historians, puts together all passages where one can see the ancient Greek archer at work and in his military setting.

Review Of Heidelberg Im Säkularen Umbruch. Traditionsbewußtsein Und Kulturpolitik Um 1800, Edited By Friedrich Strack, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Jan 1990

Review Of Heidelberg Im Säkularen Umbruch. Traditionsbewußtsein Und Kulturpolitik Um 1800, Edited By Friedrich Strack, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

This twelfth volume in the Deutscher Idealismus Philosophie und Wirkungsgeschichte in Quellen und Studien series on aspects of German Idealism maintains the high quality set by earlier volumes in this series. It consists of 23 articles that originally were presented at a colloquium held in Heidelberg in the fall of 1985 on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of Heidelberg University. The collection focuses on the period of transition at the University after 1803 when, in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars, the Palatinate was divided and Heidelberg was incorporated into Baden.


The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1990

The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

When Europeans visit the Great Plains region of the United States, they are impressed by the newness of the place. Coming from communities that often are filled with physical evidence of great age, they are reminded that here virtually none of the visible marks of Euroamerican culture are more than a mere century old. Before 1854, the year in which Nebraska was legislated into existence, permanent residence in this place was technically illegal. Except for the never-numerous Indians, a few fur trappers and traders, and some soldiers and their camp followers clustered around Fort Kearny, Nebraska had no population. It ...


Germans In The New World: Essays In The History Of Immigration, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1990

Germans In The New World: Essays In The History Of Immigration, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

In some respects the new immigration history contrasts strongly with the old. Whereas the traditional was assimilationist and stressed the cultural contributions of the newcomers, the new is more often pluralist and focuses on cultural conflict. The old tended to describe individual accomplishment and, drawing upon readily available sources such as letters, speeches, diaries, and other qualitative sources, was unintentionally elitist; the new analyzes the relationships of the ethnic group (i.e., the masses of ordinary people of limited skills in communication) with elements of the receiving society, including other ethnocultural collectivities. It uses quantitative sources, such as census manuscripts ...

The George Eliot Review

DESIGN ON FRONT COVER:

Enter The Aunts: The 1990 George Eliot Reading By Gabriel Woolf, Gabriel Woolf Jan 1990

Enter The Aunts: The 1990 George Eliot Reading By Gabriel Woolf, Gabriel Woolf

The George Eliot Review

I believe it was Henry James who wrote that any artistic performance requires 'the perfect presence of mind, unconfused, unhurried by emotion.' The quality of Gabriel Woolf' s performance in ENTER THE AUNTS fulfilled the requirements of Henry James as well as the expectations of the audience, and the artistry touched the heights.

A mind had certainly been present in choosing the programme, which provided a perfect blend of George Eliot and The Others. The bickering aunts from The Mill on the Floss seem to be everyone's favourites. George Eliot no doubt drew on her memories of her own ...


The Triumph Of Spirit Over Law: Free Will Versus Determinism In Adam Bede, William Klein Jan 1990

The Triumph Of Spirit Over Law: Free Will Versus Determinism In Adam Bede, William Klein

The George Eliot Review

One of the primary intellectual influences that shaped George Eliot's thought was positivism, or rather the various influence of positivistic philosophers such as Comte, Mill, Spencer, Feuerbach and Lewes, who each in his own way subscribed to an empiricism dictating that knowledge of anything but actual phenomena is impossible, and thus rejected any metaphysical speculation concerning ultimate causes or origins. This is a broad definition of positivism, and perhaps generalizes at the expense of the fine points of the thinkers under discussion; however, George Eliot's ultimate rejection of the notion of a God whose existence cannot be empirically ...


Review Of Adam Bede At The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Surrey, Rosalind Holt Jan 1990

Review Of Adam Bede At The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Surrey, Rosalind Holt

The George Eliot Review

Gaps in appreciation.

The rash boast of many an English teacher - that Middlemarch is the greatest novel in our language - is enough to put most people off literature for life.

Going, Going, Gone.......... But Where? A Slightly Sad Look At A House Sale, Kathleen Adams Jan 1990

Going, Going, Gone.......... But Where? A Slightly Sad Look At A House Sale, Kathleen Adams

The George Eliot Review

During the last decade Antique and Collectors' Fairs have flourished in Britain and are a very popular way for many of the population to spend a pleasant afternoon browsing amongst the items for sale. Forty years ago, when I began collecting - in a very modest way - antique shops were way out of my bracket and it was in junk shops that I picked up what I now regard as bargains. In those days few people seemed to be collecting pretty pieces of china or old pieces of brass and the prices were low. Junk shops, particularly in the poorer parts ...


The Kapellmeister, Bill Adams Jan 1990

The Kapellmeister, Bill Adams

The George Eliot Review

"Rosamond played admirably. Her master at Mrs. Lemon's school (close to a county town with a memorable history that had its relics in church and castle) was one of those excellent musicians here and there to be found in our provinces, worthy to compare with many a noted Kapellmeister in a country which offers more plentiful conditions of musical celebrity. Rosamond, with the executant's instinct, had seized his manner of playing, and gave forth his large rendering of noble music with the precision of an echo. It was almost startling, heard for the first time. A hidden soul ...


Message Of Greeting From The Fellowship President, Jonathan G. Ouvry Jan 1990

Message Of Greeting From The Fellowship President, Jonathan G. Ouvry

The George Eliot Review

It hardly seems possible that ten years have passed since the memorial stone was laid in Westminster Abbey. For the George Eliot Fellowship the stone-laying was an end, the accomplishment of something worked for for many years. For me it was a beginning, as it marked my introduction to the Fellowship, a happy meeting which I have had much cause to be pleased about ever since. For me the Fellowship has provided new and lasting friendships, much information about and insights into George Eliot and her work, the same in respect to George Henry Lewes, the opportunity to listen to ...


Obituary: Mrs. D.E. Beamish: Vice President Of The George Eliot Fellowship Jan 1990

Obituary: Mrs. D.E. Beamish: Vice President Of The George Eliot Fellowship

The George Eliot Review

When Eva Beamish died in March she was in her ninety-first year. Her death this year has held a particular sadness for us since she was to have been our Guest of Honour at the Wreath-laying in Nuneaton in June. As this is the Fellowship's Diamond Jubilee year, it was thought most fitting that our wreath should be laid by our oldest member - certainly in terms of the length of her membership. Indeed, when we invited her, we were under the impression that she was a founder member but, in accepting the invitation, she pointed out that her father ...


A Letter From George, Kathleen Adams Jan 1990

A Letter From George, Kathleen Adams

The George Eliot Review

BBC CWR is a new local radio station launched at the beginning of the year to cover Coventry and Warwickshire. It became clear very early on that the station wished to show an interest in and pay tribute to George Eliot. A Letter from George was their first attempt and from the success of this I feel we can look forward to a long period of co-operation between the Fellowship and the BBC in Warwickshire in relation to George Eliot.

In choosing eight episodes of about ten minutes each it was inevitable that the life of the novelist would be ...


Review Of Emily Davies And The Liberation Of Women, Kathleen Adams, Daphne Bennett Jan 1990

Review Of Emily Davies And The Liberation Of Women, Kathleen Adams, Daphne Bennett

The George Eliot Review

Daphne Bennett has rewritten, in this book on Emily Davies, the history of the feminist movement. She seethes when she hears people talk about the movement as though it began with the suffragettes, for her heroine had been working for the emancipation of women for 50 years before the suffragettes were making themselves noticed in no uncertain manner.

Emily Davies was one of the great pioneers in the cause of women but little is, or has been, really known about her. She has often been confused with Emily Davison who threw herself under the feet of the King's horse ...


Review Of George Eliot: An Intellectual Life, Valerie A. Dodd Jan 1990

Review Of George Eliot: An Intellectual Life, Valerie A. Dodd

The George Eliot Review

The tendency to produce esoteric books is one of the less pleasing registers of our critical and scholarly time. Valerie Dodd' s book fills a gap at great length, and in doing so examines a number of intellectual lives, among them those of Mill and Carlyle. It also presents a mini-thesis on Saint-Simonianism. All this is heavy preamble to Marian Evans (63 pages to be exact) and Marian's own heavy (and often passing) preoccupations before she began to write fiction. Sources are voluminous and often cited, so that the narrative is weighed down with references which arrest its flow ...


Review Of Middlemarch: A Student's Companion To The Novel, Bert G. Hornback Jan 1990

Review Of Middlemarch: A Student's Companion To The Novel, Bert G. Hornback

The George Eliot Review

Advanced undergraduate or graduate students, as well as general readers who are quite familiar with Middlemarch, should find Homback's book interesting reading. It is well documented with frequent references to the Norton Critical Edition of Middlemarch, which Hornback edited, and to other sources.

This volume follows the standard format of the Masterwork series, including a chronology, a discussion of the historical context, a review of the critical reception, a discussion of key themes and ideas, and a bibliography and an index.

Thematic discussions take place under such chapter titles as "Seeing," "Feeling and Knowledge," "Being Heroic and Constructive," and ...
