The Romance of the Rose and the Making of Fourteenth-Century English Literature by Philip Knox Summary

The Romance of the Rose had a transformative effect on the multilingual literary culture of fourteenth-century England, leaving more material evidence for late medieval English-speaking readers than any other vernacular literary work from mainland Europe. This book examines its decisive effect on English literature of the fourteenth century, and new literary experiments it provoked from writers such as Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower, William Langland, and the author of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Linking the English afterlife of the Rose to a host of ongoing cultural developments in mainland Europe, The Romance of the Rose and the Making of Fourteenth-Century English Literature reveals the deep interconnectedness of English and European literary culture. Examining courtly, clerical, and classicising orientations towards the text, it presents new arguments for the place of the Rose at the centre of fourteenth-century English literature, and explores its rich manuscript history to reveal new evidence about the cultural significance of this love allegory from thirteenth-century France. The chapters avoid an author-centred approach, arranging readings of the Rose and its relation with English literature in constellations that reveal complex unfolding inter-relation of the diverse readings of the Rose that took place in fourteenth-century England.

The English Romance in Time by Helen Cooper Summary

The English Romance in Time is a study of English romance across the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It explores romance motifs - quests and fairy mistresses, passionate heroines and rudderless boats and missing heirs - from the first emergence of the genre in French and Anglo-Norman in the twelfth century down to the early seventeenth. This is a continuous story, since the same romances that constituted the largest and most sophisticated body of secular fiction in the Middle Ages went on to enjoy a new and vibrant popularity at all social levels in black-letter prints as the pulp fiction of the Tudor age. This embedded culture was reworked for political and Reformation propaganda and for the 'writing of England', as well as providing a generous reservoir of good stories and dramatic plots. The different ways in which the same texts were read over several centuries, or the same motifs shifted meaning as understanding and usage altered, provide a revealing and sensitive measure of historical and cultural change. The book accordingly looks at those processes of change as well as at how the motifs themselves work, to offer a historical semantics of the language of romance conventions. It also looks at how politics and romance intersect - the point where romance comes true. The historicizing of the study of literature is belatedly leading to a wider recognition that the early modern world is built on medieval foundations. This book explores both the foundations and the building. Similarly, generic theory, which previously tended to operate on transhistorical assumptions, is now acknowledging that genre interacts crucially with cultural context - with changing audiences and ideologies and means of dissemination. The generation into which Spenser and Shakespeare were born was the last to be brought up on a wide range of medieval romances in their original forms, and they could therefore exploit their generic codings in new texts aimed at both elite and popular audiences. Romance may since then have lost much of its cultural centrality, but the universal appeal of these same stories has continued to fuel later works from Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress to C.S. Lewis and Tolkien.

America’s Romance with the English Garden by Thomas J. Mickey Summary

The 1890s saw a revolution in advertising. Cheap paper, faster printing, rural mail delivery, railroad shipping, and chromolithography combined to pave the way for the first modern, mass-produced catalogs. The most prominent of these, reaching American households by the thousands, were seed and nursery catalogs with beautiful pictures of middle-class homes surrounded by sprawling lawns, exotic plants, and the latest garden accessories—in other words, the quintessential English-style garden. America’s Romance with the English Garden is the story of tastemakers and homemakers, of savvy businessmen and a growing American middle class eager to buy their products. It’s also the story of the beginnings of the modern garden industry, which seduced the masses with its images and fixed the English garden in the mind of the American consumer. Seed and nursery catalogs delivered aspirational images to front doorsteps from California to Maine, and the English garden became the look of America.

Both Osla and Mab are quick to see the potential in local village spinster Beth, whose shyness conceals a brilliant facility with puzzles, and soon Beth spreads her wings as one of the Park’s few female cryptanalysts.

Under His Discretion: A New Adult Historical Romance by Stacy Von Haegert Summary

Fans of Bridgerton and Outlander will love this richly textured and adventurous New Adult Historical Romance by International Bestselling Author Stacy Von Haegert! Perkin Kingston’s distinguished good-looks and keen political mind stood out among The Queen's shining court. Perhaps too well... The oldest of the Kingston siblings and the new Duke of York, Perkin blames his father’s murder on a five-hundred-year-old Order. Exacting his revenge is right on course, until he uses the wrong tapestry to wipe clean his blood-soaked sword. Shay Gallagher could forgive the tapestry, and the duke’s mercurial murderous ways, but stealing her already dwindling household staff to supply his mercenary laden war camp, is too much to abide. She is ready to do whatever it takes to put the newly arrived, unreasonably attractive, dangerously intelligent, and slightly broken laird in his place. Perkin must see his family's past wrongs made right. Even with new challenges emerging daily. Namely, the beautiful blonde lass at the bottom of the hill, challenging his rule, his life’s mission, and his very heart. Can he keep his priorities straight while in Ireland, with its lush landscape, steeped in lore and history? A tumultuous past that will either... Side with the Kingston’s or see them dead.

She desperately needs the job, or she will soon be without a place to live. Now, if she could just figure out why a local farmer keeps casting suspicious glares her way... Sure, Grayson McCade has his hands full with his farm. The second he learns a newcomer has been hired to care for Elizabeth, he worries the kind-hearted old woman is being scammed.Will the secrets revealed tarnish Heather’s new start before it even begins? PROMISE MADE **Beautifully written**~reviewer Olivia McCade prefers flowers to people. Other than the occasional thorn poke, she figures plants are far less likely to hurt her. It was that realization that caused her to leave her nursing career behind and settle into the calming aromas of her flower shop. The plan worked great... until a huge wedding contract put her face to face with the man who broke her heart and shattered her dreams. Needing someone at her side to help her through this, Olivia turns to Sam Hunter.But Sam has a secret all his own.Now, as she looks to him for comfort, Sam must find a way to juggle her fragile heart and his own stirring emotions. PROMISE FOREVER **Wonderfully written!**~reviewer Growing up in Harland Creek, Gabriela Jackson was the girl all the guys wanted and all the girls wanted to be. Until one tragic night that rocks the entire town and leaves her the object of scorn. Unable to stay in a place where the entire town hates her, she signs a modeling contract with an elite New York agency just to get away. She soon discovered the darker side of beauty. After refusing to compromise her morals, she’s labeled as difficult and black balled in the industry. With nowhere else to turn, she returns to Harland Creek. But her homecoming is far from warm. Judgmental stares. Incessant gossip behind her back. Hurtful preconceived notions. Now, more than ever, Gabriela is determined to prove only she can define who she is as a person. Colin Bennet left his scandal-riddled family in England to forge his own respectable path in life. The small town charm of Harland Creek seemed the perfect place to open a book store, and focus on penning his first novel. Turns out that second part would be far easier if American women weren’t falling all over him simply because of his accent. But there is one who seems uninterested in his worldly charms. An intoxicating beauty with razor sharp wit, striking intelligence and a damaged reputation. But are they willing to risk it all for a chance at true happiness? CHRISTMAS IN HARLAND CREEK **Charming Christmas Story!**~reviewer Christmas magic comes to Harland Creek! Ever the introverted bookworm, Eliza Ross has read many love stories set to a backdrop of sleigh bells and snow flurries. But turning the pages of her favorite authors’ latest release is the closest she’s ever come to that kind of romance. Convinced it would be yet another holiday full of itchy Christmas sweaters and family gatherings, Eliza takes a break from her college courses and ventures home to the small town of Harland Creek. Little does she know more than tinsel and holly berries await her there. For as long as she can remember, Eliza has had a crush on Jake Denton. Not that he even knew she existed... or so she thought. Yet when a winter storm traps them together, they learn they have more in common than Eliza ever could have imagined. While the weather outside is frightful, seeing the softer side of Jake is truly delightful. Will the blinding blizzard open their eyes to the magical connection between them?

Hollywoodäó»s Second Sex by Aubrey Malone Summary

“Women stars in Hollywood were invariably in two categories,” said director Otto Preminger. “One group was of women who were exploited by men, and the other, much smaller group was of women who survived by acting like men.” Beginning with silent film vamp Theda Bara and continuing with icons like Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe and Raquel Welch, this study of film industry misogyny describes how female stars were maltreated by a sexist studio system—until women like Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis fought for parity. The careers of Doris Day, Brigitte Bardot, Carole Landis, Frances Farmer, Dorothy Dandridge, Inger Stevens and many others are examined, along with more recent actresses like Demi Moore and Sharon Stone. Women who worked behind the scenes, writing screenplays, producing and directing without due credit, are also covered.

Stealing the young bride-to-be is the perfect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan's one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. This brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan's soul that is even more powerful than a warrior's fury. But when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor—and surrenders in his arms—the real battle begins... Julianne MacLean's Captured by the Highlander is sizzling historical romance.

THE FORTUNES OF PERKIN WARBECK (A ROMANCE) BY THE AUTHOR OF “FRANKENSTEIN” BY Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Summary

The Fortunes of Perkin Warbeck: A Romance is an 1830 historical novel by Mary Shelley about the life of Perkin Warbeck. The book takes a Yorkist point of view and proceeds from the conceit that Perkin Warbeck died in childhood and the supposed impostor was indeed Richard of Shrewsbury. Henry VII of England is repeatedly described as a "fiend" who hates Elizabeth of York, his wife and Richard's sister, and the future Henry VIII, mentioned only twice in the novel, is a vile youth who abuses dogs. Her preface establishes that records of the Tower of London, as well as the histories of Edward Hall, Raphael Holinshed, and Francis Bacon, the letters of Sir John Ramsay to Henry VII that are printed in the Appendix to John Pinkerton's History of Scotland establish this as fact. Each chapter opens with a quotation. The entire book is prefaced with a quotation in French by Georges Chastellain and Jean Molinet.

Sir Henry Morgan, Buccaneer: A Romance of the Spanish Main by Cyrus Townsend Brady Summary

ÊHis Gracious Majesty, King Charles II. of England, in sportiveÑand acquisitiveÑmood, had made him a knight; but, as that merry monarch himself had said of another unworthy subject whom he had ennobledÑhis son, by the left handÑ"God Almighty could not make him a gentleman!" Yet, to the casual inspection, little or nothing appeared to be lacking to entitle him to all the consideration attendant upon that ancient degree. His attire, for instance, might be a year or two behind the fashion of England and still further away from that of France, then, as now, the standard maker in dress, yet it represented the extreme of the mode in His Majesty's fair island of Jamaica. That it was a trifle too vivid in its colors, and too striking in its contrasts for the best taste at home, possibly might be condoned by the richness of the material used and the prodigality of trimming which decorated it. Silk and satin from the Orient, lace from Flanders, leather from Spain, with jewels from everywhere, marked him as a person entitled to some consideration, at least. Even more compulsory of attention, if not of respect, were his haughty, overbearing, satisfied manner, his look of command, the expression of authority in action he bore. Quite in keeping with his gorgeous appearance was the richly furnished room in which he sat in autocratic isolation, plumed hat on head, quaffing, as became a former brother-of-the-coast and sometime buccaneer, amazing draughts of the fiery spirits of the island of which he happened to be, ad interim, the Royal Authority. But it was his face which attested the acuteness of the sneering observation of the unworthy giver of the royal accolade. No gentleman ever bore face like that. Framed in long, thin, gray curls which fell upon his shoulders after the fashion of the time, it was as cruel, as evil, as sensuous, as ruthless, as powerful an old face as had ever looked over a bulwark at a sinking ship, or viewed with indifference the ravaging of a devoted town. Courage there was, capacity in large measure, but not one trace of human kindness. Thin, lean, hawk-like, ruthless, cunning, weather-beaten, it was sadly out of place in its brave attire in that vaulted chamber. It was the face of a man who ruled by terror; who commanded by might. It was the face of an adventurer, too, one never sure of his position, but always ready to fight for it, and able to fight well. There was a watchful, alert, inquiring look in the fierce blue eyes, an intent, expectant expression in the craggy countenance, that told of the uncertainties of his assumptions; yet the lack of assurance was compensated for by the firm, resolute line of the mouth under the trifling upturned mustache, with its lips at the same time thin and sensual. To be fat and sensual is to appear to mitigate the latter evil with at least a pretence at good humor; to be thin and sensual is to be a devil. This man was evil, not with the grossness of a debauchee but with the thinness of the devotee. And he was an old man, too. Sixty odd years of vicious life, glossed over in the last two decades by an assumption of respectability, had swept over the gray hairs, which evoked no reverence.
