. Above all, movement, either as escape into or walking in the garden, whether as a journey from Bedford to Lincolnshire or a ramble with Mr B. in his chariot, prompts an outpouring of passion in Pamela. While the closet, the place of introspection where Richardson’s heroines sit down to write their representations of events, dialogues and feelings, has variously become the object of literary criticism or the history of art and design,15 this article focuses on areas out of doors that give Pamela the opportunity to come out of the ‘shell’16 which encloses her interior

Criminality was reputedly the product of an undisciplined self, a disordered appetite and a passion for over-indulgence in all matters of the senses from excessive eating and drinking to indiscriminate sexual encounters. In an agrarian-based settler society the beguiling seductions of modern luxuries were, however, supposedly absent. ‘New situations make new minds’, William Godwin

emotions publicly, which is not usually socially acceptable elsewhere. As clubs, leagues and media companies continue to expand their markets, it is unlikely that there will be a reduction in the number of matches being played. This will mean that there will continue to be numerous opportunities for ultras to meet, perform and create their spectacles. There will be continuing passion and performance in stadiums across the world, all of which will intensify and magnify the image of the ultras. It is for this reason that the ultras are not going away. Since their inception

Things happen, words come, all sorts of miraculous effects come into play. ✂ Cixous cuts with her passion for words, everything has to be heard as if the listener had been deaf and then out of the blue hearing is restored. That is the vitality and vibrancy she detects in great works of literature. But we are living in a world that seems increasingly deaf, dead to the world. Take

Dickens on working-class scarcity and middle-class excess
Peter Gurney

’s writing was itself literally imbricated within and was part of the new consumerism. Many firms, including producers of branded goods such as Colman’s mustard and Pears’ soap, advertised in the inserts that were bound in with the serial parts of his novels; after he died tea dealers and others promoted their goods by giving away free copies of his works.5 From the mid-1840s, Dickens embraced the free trade utopia as a solution to working-class scarcity, initially with a passion of which John Bright would have approved.
