A charming edition featuring just the hilarious, bizarre and delightfully bonkers limericks from Edward Lear's Nonsense Verse, including gems such as 'There was a Young Lady whose nose, Was so long that it reached to her toes; So she hired an Old Lady, whose conduct was steady, To carry that wonderful nose.'

The Victorian era is famous for the collecting, hording, and displaying of things; for the mass production and consumption of things; for the invention, distribution and sale of things; for those who had things, and those who did not. For many people, the Victorian period is intrinsically associated with paraphernalia. This collection of essays explores the Victorians through their materiality, and asks how objects were part of being Victorian; which objects defined them, represented them, were uniquely theirs; and how reading the Victorians, through their possessions, can deepen our understanding of Victorian culture. Miscellaneous and often auxiliary, paraphernalia becomes the ‘disjecta’ of everyday life, deemed neither valuable enough for museums nor symbolic enough for purely literary study. This interdisciplinary collection looks at the historical, cultural and literary debris that makes up the background of Victorian life: Valentine’s cards, fish tanks, sugar plums, china ornaments, hair ribbons, dresses and more. Contributors also, however, consider how we use Victorian objects to construct the Victorian today; museum spaces, the relation of Victorian text to object, and our reading – or gazing at – Victorian advertisements out of context on searchable online databases. Responding to thing theory and modern scholarship on Victorian material culture, this book addresses five key concerns of Victorian materiality: collecting; defining class in the home; objects becoming things; objects to texts; objects in circulation through print culture.

A Critical Appraisal of Modern Fiction for Children
Author: Margery Fisher
Author: Kate Tempest
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
Die preisgekrönte Rapperin und Lyrikerin Kate Tempest presst mit ihrem Debüt ihre Hand ans finstere, schlagende Herz der Metropolen, das im allesüberdauernden Takt von Drogen, Begehren und Freundschaft schlägt. Ihre Helden Becky, Pete, Leon und Harry haben Jobs, für die es keine Ausbildung und Geld, für das es ungewaschen keine Verwendung gibt. Sie müssen raus, raus aus London – und kommen doch nicht davon los. Tempest nimmt uns mit in die Häuser und Herzen der kleinen Leute, in ihre Familien und zeigt uns Momente voller Schönheit, Enttäuschung, Ehrgeiz und Scheitern. Klug, niemals zynisch und immer voller Empathie stellt «Worauf du dich verlassen kannst» die Frage, wie wir leben und einander lieben – und zeigt uns, dass gute Absichten nicht notwendigerweise zu den richtigen Entscheidungen führen.
