"Writing and Fantasy brings together essays which restore a sense of the fantastic as a political response to cultural opportunities and pressures. It moves on from two conventional fields of discussion: the psychoanalytic, where 'phantasies' are produced by the emergence of the consciousness, and the social, where 'fantasies' are the production of nineteenth-century individualism. A wide variety of sites are investigated including the feminization of the wild west, originary and maternal spaces, highwaywomen, financial credit, and the ideal home. Multiple genres containing fantasy are explored, ranging from ghost stories to feminist utopias." "The new research presented here will be of great interest to academics and students in literature, history and cultural studies departments who are working in the field of the historical development of concepts of fantasy, cultural opposition, and the imbrication of politics and modes of representation."--Jacket
Queen of the Courtesans : Fanny Murray by Barbara White( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fanny Murray (1729-1770) was a famous Georgian beauty and courtesan, desired throughout England and often to be found pressed to a gentleman's heart in the form of a printed disc secretly tucked into their pocket-watch. She rose from life in the 'London stews' to fame and fortune, through her career as a high-class courtesan. Her Memoirs (the first 'whore Biography' - included in this book) records her eventful life in detail. She was seduced and then abandoned, aged just 12, by Jack Spencer, grandson of Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough (and related to the Althorp-based Spencers). Her luck turned when she caught the eye of the infamous Beau Nash, 'King of Bath'. But it was her return to London that promoted her to national fame and notoriety. After ten years at the top, she was heavily in debt, and after some devious manipulation of the Marlborough family, she managed to secure an arranged marriage to a respectable man. The scandals of her past caught up with her as she was named in the national scandal surrounding Wilke's pornography case at the High Court
