For the love of animals : the rise of the animal protection movement by Kathryn Shevelow ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In eighteenth-century England--where cockfighting and bullbaiting drew large crowds, and the abuse of animals was routine--the idea of animal protection was dismissed as laughably radical. But as pets became more common, human attitudes toward animals evolved. An unconventional duchess defended their intellect in her writings; a gentleman scientist believed that animals should be treated with compassion; and with the concentrated efforts of an eccentric Scots barrister and a flamboyant Irishman, the lives of beasts--and, correspondingly, men and women--began to change. Kathryn Shevelow, a scholar of the eighteenth century, gives us the dramatic story of the bold reformers who braved attacks because they sympathized with the plight of creatures everywhere. More than just a history, this cultural narrative is an exploration into how our feelings toward animals reveal our ideas about ourselves, God, mercy, and nature.--From publisher description
Charlotte : being a true account of an actress's flamboyant adventures in eighteenth-century London's wild and wicked theatrical world by Kathryn Shevelow ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The life of actress Charlotte Charke transports us through the splendors and scandals of eighteenth-century London and its wicked theatrical world. Her father was one of the century's great actor/playwrights, a favorite of the king. It was thought that his high-spirited, often rebellious daughter Charlotte would follow in his footsteps at the legendary Drury Lane--but this was not to be. She had the troublesome habit of dressing in men's clothes--a preference first revealed onstage but adopted elsewhere after her disastrous marriage to an actor, who became the last man she ever loved. Author Shevelow, an expert on eighteenth-century London, re-creates Charlotte's downfall from the heights of London's theatrical world to its lascivious lows (the domain of fire-eaters, puppeteers, wastrels, gender-bending cross-dressers, wenches, and scandalous sorts of every variety) and her comeback as the author of one of the first autobiographies ever written by a woman.--From publisher description
