the chance and opportunity to excerpt some lines in French by that most illustrious royal poet Pierre de Ronsard, from the Franciade , a French epic which is clearly comparable to Homer’s Iliad and Virgil’s Aeneid . I also wish to make them available to be read by the readers of my commentaries in the Latin translation of Jean Dorat, royal poet and a man endowed with rare learning, so that foreign nations may understand the existence and quality of the geniuses produced by our France, and the extent to which literary works and liberal education flourish amongst

was himself sceptical about the degree to which individuals who had not benefited from a rigorous liberal education could govern themselves effectively; but contemporary theorists seem much more willing to place their faith in the materialist spur to the development of responsible self-government. A focus upon the economic rewards of stable democracies avoids the Victorian insistence that democracy could only survive within

which have, of late years, been introduced into all the sciences connected with the art of medicine. The progress of botany and natural history, and the wonderful discoveries in chemistry, have now extended the sphere of these useful branches beyond the mere purpose of the physician, and have rendered a competent knowledge of them highly interesting to every man of liberal

Two Cultures and a hat

of nature over culture, and of science over Arnoldian values (truth and beauty). Nature should lead men, and culture itself, too long locked up by the ‘Levites in charge of the ark of culture and monopolists of liberal education’, should be transformed to reflect better the new priorities given by ‘the definite order’ of nature (Huxley, 1881 : 3, cited in Hultberg, 1997 : 196). Knocking the Two Cultures debate out of its place in this line of succession can be productive. It enables a different kind of auditing of the arguments. Doing this

growing presence of women, Dalit students and students from historically marginalised north-eastern states is challenging the hegemonies of androcentric, patriarchal and Brahmanical academic structures on which liberal education has been based.

an inspiring persona in the reform of university education, which he viewed as the key to social progress (‘Liberal Education in Universities’, Lectures and Essays , 1870), and from the 1860s promoted women’s access to Cambridge. He taught at Maurice’s Working Men’s College, associated with Emily Davies’s campaigns (he was a close friend of her brother, John Llewelyn Davies [II, 7]), supported Ann Clough’s North of England Council, lectured girls at Hitchin Girls’ School (1873–1881), and involved himself in the creation of Newnham College in 1875, with Henry

Censorship, poetry and Fletcher’s later career
Felicity Jane Stout

Chapter 6 A controversial commonwealth Censorship, poetry and Fletcher’s later career A man of spirit and understanding, helped by learning and liberal education, can hardly endure a tyrannicall government. Giles Fletcher, Of the Russe Common Wealth (1591) The specific context of the late 1580s and early 1590s provided an environment ripe for a sensitised reaction against Fletcher’s Of the Russe Common Wealth, which could have been read as encouraging criticism of sacral monarchy and unreformed religion, and engaging with the particularly prickly issue of

, broadcast between 1951 and 1962. These programmes helped to forge links between academics and the BBC and to harness the power of broadcasting to the values of liberal education. Many of the contributors were adult education tutors, and the style and content of the programmes had about them ‘something of the early university class tutorial movement’. Discussions were designed to educate and speakers included a number of people who later came to be associated with the OU, including Harold Wilson, Raymond Williams and Asa Briggs.231 The Midlands Region of the BBC broadcast

The loss of the seat to 86 The Irish Parliamentary Party at Westminster the Conservative candidate – albeit by a margin of only 429 votes – may in fact attest to the relatively low influence of nationalist versus Catholic and other pressure groups in what was one of England’s most ethnically Irish constituencies.
