Evelyn Pickering De Morgan and the Allegorical Body

Author: Elise Lawton Smith,Evelyn De Morgan

Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press

ISBN: 9780838638835

Category: Art

Page: 248

This is a study of the paintings of one of the most significant and prolific Victorian women artists, Evelyn Pickering De Morgan (1855-1919). Just over a hundred paintings and a handful of sculptures are known, and they reveal what her sister-biographer described as an "incessant struggle" to create. This study of her work confirms that the idea of progress toward the afterlife is a recurrent motif, arising from a personal involvement in the movement of Spiritualism and paralleling the automatic writing passages in The Result of an Experiment (1909), anonymously published by Evelyn and her husband William De Morgan. This book analyzes her exploration of these spiritualist and proto-feminist issues in a series of mythological, literary, and biblical images, in a number of war-related paintings associated with the Boer War and with World War I, and in the allegories for which she is most well known. De Morgan's art is illustrated here by 14 color plates and 67 black-and-white images. In addition, reproductions of 50 comparative works, most of them by her contemporaries in England, enhance our understanding of the period.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Modern Drama Scholarship and Criticism 1981-1990

An International Bibliography

Author: Charles A. Carpenter

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

ISBN: N.A

Category: Drama

Page: 632

View: 950

The successor to modern drama scholarship and criticism 1966-1980, the present volume is a classified, selective list of publications for the period 1981-1990, with many additions and corrections to the previous volume. It refines and supplements the series of annual bibliographies that Charles Carpenter compiled for the journal Modern Drama from 1982 to 1993. The work is designed both as a convenient checklist of significant scholarship on all aspects of world drama since Ibsen and as a bibliographical prTcis of the discipline as it has evolved since 1980. The great majority of its 25,200 entries concern literary currents in drama since the last third of the nineteenth century and the associated playwrights, although theatre history is also well represented. Because of the heightened interest in semiotic, anthropological, feminist, and other theoretical approaches to drama during the decade of the 1980s, the 'Contemporary Theory' section has been greatly expanded. The primary organization is geographic/linguistic; the main divisions are World Drama, then American, British and Irish, Canadian, Hispanic, French, Italian, Germanic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, African and West Indian, Australasian, and Asian drama. A name index is included. Although the bibliography is limited to material in Roman-alphabet languages, its scope, orientation, and format are designed to make the project internationally useful and intelligible.
