Visual rhetoric and early modern English literature by Katherine O Acheson( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early modern printed books are copiously illustrated with charts, diagrams, and other kinds of images that represent systems of thought and ways of doing things. This book shows how these images fostered what Elizabeth Eisenstein called "brainwork" related to concepts of space, truth, art, and nature, and reveals their importance to poetry by Andrew Marvell and John Milton, and Aphra Behn's 'Oroonoko'. The genres of illustration considered in this book include military strategy and tactics, garden design, instrumentation, Bibles, scientific schema, drawing instruction, natural history, comparative anatomy, and Aesop's 'Fables'. The argument produces unique insights into the ways in which visual rhetoric affected verbal expression, and the book develops novel methods of using printed images as evidence in the interpretation of the rich, strange, and beautiful literature of early modern England
The memoir of 1603 and the diary of 1616-1619 by Anne Clifford Herbert Pembroke( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anne Clifford's memoir for the year 1603 and her diary of 1616-1619 are invaluable records of the daily life and social and family relationships of a noblewoman of her time. In them she records her travels, her reading, her religious observances, her relationships with her mother, her husband, and her child, and the progress - or lack thereof - of her legal efforts to obtain what she viewed as her inheritance, extensive estates in the north of England. The two texts offer a unique view of the life, feelings, experience, and self-fashioning of this extraordinary woman, and they bring to life the history and literary culture of the period in a refreshing and direct way." "This Broadview edition includes an illuminating introduction that places these texts in their historical and literary context. The appendices include poems dedicated and addressed to Clifford, her funeral sermon, and the "Great Picture" of the Clifford family."--Jacket
Writing essays about literature : a brief guide for university and college students by Katherine O Acheson( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives students an answer to the question, "What does my professor want from this essay?" In lively, direct language, it explains the process of creating "a clearly-written argument, based on evidence, about the meaning, power, or structure of a literary work." Using a single poem by William Carlos Williams as the basis for the process of writing a paper about a piece of literature, it walks students through the processes of reading, brainstorming, researching secondary sources, gathering evidence, and composing and editing the paper. It is designed to strengthen argumentation skills and understanding of the relationships between the reader, the author, the text, and critical interpretations. Its lessons about clarity, precision, and the importance of providing evidence will have wide relevance for student writers
The Broadview anthology of British literature( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The two-volume Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Concise Edition provides an attractive alternative to the full six-volume anthology. Though much more compact, the concise edition nevertheless provides instructors with substantial choice, offering both a strong selection of canonical authors and a sampling of lesser-known works. With an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, accessible and engaging introductions, and full explanatory annotations, the concise edition of this acclaimed Broadview anthology provides focused yet wide-ranging coverage for British literature survey courses."--Page 4 of cover, vol. A

Early modern marginalia by Katherine O Acheson( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marginalia in early modern and medieval texts - printed, handwritten, drawn, scratched, colored, and pasted in - offer a crazy quilt composed of fragments of how people, as individuals and in groups, interacted with books and manuscripts over often lengthy periods of time. The chapters in this volume build on earlier scholarship that established marginalia as intellectual method (Grafton and Jardine), as records of reading motivated by cultural, social, theological, and personal inclinations (Hackel and Orgel), and as practices inspired by material affordances particular to the book and the pen (Fleming and Sherman). They further the study of the practices of marginalia as a mode - a set of ways in which material opportunities and practices overlap with intellectual, social and personal motivations to make meaning in the world. They introduce us to a set of idiosyncratic examples - erotic images doodled in a medical manuscript, cut - and - pasted additions to printed volumes, a marriage depicted through shared book ownership, for example - and reveal to us in case studies the unique value of marginalia as evidence of phenomena as diverse as religious change, scientific discovery, and the history of the literary canon. They also raise broad historical, cultural, and theoretical questions about the relationship between animal parts and human society, the construction of authorship, the ways in which exchange of words and objects align, the strange, marvelous, metamorphic thing we call the book, and the equally multiplicitous, eccentric, and inscrutable known as the reader
