on the objects displayed therein (the collection, in a study), the activities performed (painting or sculpting, in an artist’s studio) or the persons inhabiting them (the mistress of the house, in the petit salon and especially in the boudoir). Art historian Charlotte Gere sees the so-called “studio style” and the “boudoir style” as precursors to the Aesthetic movement in Britain. Gere has observed how, in Britain, “classical symmetry and order gave way early in the century to an encroaching ‘boudoir’ style … in all but the sacrosanct male preserves of library and

in the Novitiate generally reflected this fascination with landscape, and novices were schooled in its implications. In ‘A vale of teares’ (p. 41) Southwell presents a remarkable vision: a landscape clearly taken from life, the result of actual observation of nature, but one that, in its ‘disordred order’, presents the truest reflection, as he sees it, of England’s fallen

As luck would have it, his first case pitted him against his father, a veteran attorney of more than twenty-­five years. It was a hopeless case, but Wendell gave it his all, addressing the jury for three hours. Afterwards Herman Willkie, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, apologised to the judge: ‘I believe that my son will be a very great lawyer. He can make so much out of so little.’3 The judgment went against the novice lawyer

Introduction During the latter half of the nineteenth century there developed a notion that in any household which made claim to refinement the living room was a quintessentially female space. This idea, expressed in steadily more forthright terms, gathered in momentum over the decades, prompting the mistress of the house to lavish increasingly anxious care and attention on this most critical of domestic areas. It can therefore be understood that for the genteel woman it was an area which provided a crucial

Mina, apparently no novice to racial theory, takes his drift, agreeing that the count is ‘a criminal and of criminal type. Nordau and Lombroso would so classify him.’11 In the Egyptian sorceress who invades London in The Beetle (1897), Marsh produced a criminal deviant quite similar to Dracula.12 Just as Dracula

She read in the newspaper a small article written by Georgiana Fullerton about the newly founded Poor Servants of the Mother of God, which accepted pious women with a religious vocation but limited means. In 1871, she travelled to London to meet Frances Taylor, founder of the congregation.37 Two years later, she was a professed sister and by 1875, as Sister Mary Gertrude, she was the assistant and novice mistress of this growing congregation. The Poor Servants of the Mother of God, founded in

One condition of part-playing is that it demands a high state of attentiveness and mental agility: equipped only with a short cue that is not identified by its speaker, the player
