Correspondence and the next generation of scholars

6 Networks, patronage and exploitation: correspondence and the next generation of scholars Artemon, the editor of Aristotle’s letters, called them ‘conversations cut in half’, and indeed few other kinds of sources can give the modern-day reader a similar feeling of intimacy with historical subjects.1 Much has been said about the symbolic value of interactions within the Republic of Letters, at times to the detriment of the exploration of their practical uses. When pupils left the Zwickau Latin school for university, they were better prepared in the technical

3 Tolerance, recognition and educational patronage: Ireland’s constitutional politics of school choice Eoin Daly This chapter examines the place and role of toleration and recognition in the Irish education system through a critical review of state support for religious schools, specifically of the historical legacy of the patronage system. In Irish political discourse there has been a general acceptance that religious freedom is best served by devolving public education to private ‘patron’ bodies. While in the past the ‘patronage’ model may have been understood

289 Chapter 14 Restoration opera and the failure of patronage Bryan White T he development of opera in England has been a vexed subject since the seventeenth century. ‘Experience hath taught us that our English genius will not rellish that perpetual singing’ was Peter Motteux’s assessment in 1692.1 For much of the twentieth century, scholarly opinion was not markedly different. In Foundations of English Opera Edward Dent asserted that ‘music for the Italian is the exaggeration of personality –​for the Englishman its annihilation’.2 For him and other critics

literary sources 3 Patronage and power welfth-century noblewomen exerted power and influence through cultural patronage, and scholars have begun to clarify ways that noblewomen were important. Janet Nelson has stressed that, although women were excluded from the formal religious and political authority most often associated with literacy, they still participated in the culture of literacy.1 June McCash has similarly argued that noblewomen overcame socio-cultural obstacles to participate in cultural patronage in the various literary, religious, artistic and

4 Patronage performances – Letters (for our Letters are our selves) and in them absent friends meet) (Letters 240) Donne’s letters have aroused the interest of literary critics in so far as they may shed some biographical light on their author. Much as one may be wary of identifying the speaker of a literary text with its author, this is commonly done in the case of letters. The idea of the letter as a mirror of its writer’s soul had great currency during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in England (Müller, 1980; Jagodzinski, 1999: 76). Influenced by

Chapter 6 . Poetry, patronage and cultural agency: the career of William Lewis Tom Lockwood A uden told us that ‘poetry makes nothing happen’, writing ‘In Memory of W.B. Yeats’; but in the early modern period, Auden’s confident denial and counterbalancing assertion – ‘poetry makes nothing happen: it survives | In the valley of its making’ – might have seemed at the very least problematic.1 Aiming to be more than just a smack at Auden, this chapter takes seriously the ways in which poetry made a good deal happen in the career of one chaplain, William Lewis
