, 4.4.42), while in 4.7 he comes ‘to know what prisoners thou hast ta’en’ (4.7.56). I therefore disagree with Vincent’s argument that ‘inconsistencies generated by his appearance in 4.7’ show that ‘Lucy was clearly not part of the original conception of the sequence and it is just as clear that the copy for F [the First Folio] presented an incomplete authorial revision of apparently two very minor
The re-vision of printmaking 1 is long overdue, especially at a time when theorists, historians, and practitioners in so many fields are intensely interested in rethinking the foundations of their disciplines. Psychoanalysts Margaret Black and Stephen Mitchell wrote, ‘History is now understood by many as not a simple uncovering and
CHAPTER 2 Visions and revisions Carol Christ and women on the spiritual quest Losing innocence In the previous chapter I set out to occupy a different vantage point from which to view the relation between literature and theology from those that have been favoured by feminist theologians in the past. In so doing it was my intention to locate an examination of the use of women’s writing in feminist theology in a much wider frame than usual. When surveying the various approaches to literature within the work of religious feminists it soon becomes apparent that
4 The negotiation of the revision of the Working Time Directive This second of the three case study chapters analyses the negotiations on the revision of the Working Time Directive (WTD). How much people work is an important and contested aspect of economic life. By some normative standards, working fewer hours is an important measure of the ‘good life’, to be weighed against growth, employment, and other measures of economic wellbeing (Burgoon and Baxandall, 2004: 439–440). In 1993 the WTD was introduced to regulate and harmonise working time across the EU. It
Adapting a novel for the stage is no easy task, especially if the novel in question is as famous and omnipresent as Bram Stoker‘s Dracula. Seven years prior to Francis Ford Coppola‘s box office hit, the Scottish poet and playwright Liz Lochhead wrote a version of the vampire saga which not only successfully translates the technical complexities of Stoker‘s text into the difficult medium of the theatre, but also offers a careful reading and contemporary evaluation of the subversive potential of the novel. In her adaptation, the fundamental dilemma of subjectivity and otherness becomes visible and demonstrates why Stoker‘s creation keeps fascinating readers, film audiences and critics alike.
This paper questions the extent to which the (arguable) end of the liberal humanitarian order is something to be mourned. Suggesting that current laments for the decline of humanitarianism reflect a Eurocentric worldview, it calls for a fundamental revision of the assumptions informing humanitarian scholarship. Decoloniality and anti-colonialism should be taken seriously so as to not reproduce the same by a different name after the end of the liberal order.
Delamotte examines the representation of race in Pauline Hopkins‘s Hagar‘s Daughter (1901/2). She argues that the novel provides a revision of the Female Gothic and also exploits narrative devices familiar from detective fiction. The solving of the ‘mystery’ that lies at the heart of the novel is one which explodes the ideological ‘mystery’, and the national crime of slavery, which separates Black and White, masculine and feminine, home and state, and African American and Euro-American families.
Fitzgerald argues that Ellen Moers‘s account of the Female Gothic has its roots in a Lockean, European Enlightenment, philosophy of ownership. For Fitzgerald, this philosophy also influenced a 1970s feminist revision of the canon that involved identifying, and reclaiming, a ‘herstory’ of womens writing. Issues concerning the critical ownership of Ann Radcliffe, for example, illustrate how academic feminism has approached, and developed, the idea of what constitutes ‘womens writing’, whilst simultaneously indicating the extent to which Enlightenment ideas of ownership have shaped the Anglo-American feminist tradition.
