More solid learning : new perspectives on Alexander Pope's Dunciad by Catherine Ingrassia( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Until this book, there has not been a collection that focuses exclusively on Pope's satiric masterpiece. The essays in this volume attempt to teach the poem from a variety of perspectives and, in doing so, to illuminate its role as literary history, cultural artifact, and material object. They suggest the ways the poem interacts with and influences the dynamic milieu from which it springs."--Jacket
"The pomp of death, / is far more terrible, than death itself" : the execution spectacle on the English theatrical stage, 1660-1731 by Sarah Kathleen Appleby( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Spectacular public death was not something unfamiliar to the European people of the Restoration and eighteenth-century. Public executions had been performed for hundreds of years, and the scaffold was still a scene that was expected to draw spectators. In the name of sovereign or religious vengeance, all means of violence had been performed on real human bodies before the eyes of a crowd. The same spectators in attendance at hangings, burnings, beheadings, and the like, comprised the audiences of the drama as well. This thesis examines six plays between 1660 and 1731 and tracks the ways in which the punishment spectacle was deployed as a theatrical device. I argue that the incorporation of executions into the plays of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century provided a recasting of the role of the criminal facing death. Execution could be seen as a hero's demise, and a chance to undermine the power of the sovereign by suggesting the power of the individual to choose to die well. Sometimes that means suicide. Sometimes that means allowing the machinations of punishment to be seen through to the end and having the condemned accept death as justified not wholly by the justice of the state, but by spiritual conviction. Sometimes that means using the framework of the drama to eliminate the threat of execution altogether. Thanks to the mediation of the stage, the powerful act of violent sovereign justice is transformed into a chance for the condemned to tell his or her story, undermining the absolute authority of justice by blood and permitting the autonomous power of the individual
(Il)legitimate problems : instances of queer familial creation and the reinforcement of patriarchal structure in eighteenth-century British literature by Will Forde-Mazrui( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this project I will be using a queer lens to investigate five novels from eighteenth century Britain that use queer themes to reinforce the patriarchal and heteronormative power structure of eighteenth-century society. The first two chapters will focus on sapphic sexual initiations and the implications of female same-sex behavior and female sexual agency in conservative texts. The first chapter focuses on Henry Fielding’s The Female Husband, and the perceived threat that female appropriation of masculine gender expression and male sexual agency pose to patriarchal power structure. The second chapter explores the sapphic initiation of Fanny Hill into the phallocentric world of prostitution and the subordination of female sexual agency to the sexual potency of male genitalia in John Cleland’s Fanny Hill. The third chapter will investigate instances of male-created families through homosocial bonding in Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones, and Clara Reeve’s The Old English Baron. Each of these three conservative texts almost entirely erases the role of the female in familial creation. They instead rely on patriarchal authority to legitimize their family units, and rarely rely on women beyond the literal birthing of the child. Each of these five conservative novels seeks to affirm patriarchal structure through their representations of the visible queer subcultures of the eighteenth century, thereby showing the ways in which, in these novels and eighteenth-century society, potential threats to patriarchal power can be re-appropriated in order to reinforce that which they originally threatened
