Excerpt from A Prospectus of the Water Cure Establishment at Malvern Be it remarked, that in demolishing the assertions of medical men of the drug-school, we have chiefly used their own weapons. We have shown, on the authority of writers recognised by themselves as orthodox, the utter groundlessness of their assertions, and the utter ignorance which dictated them. We have quoted chapter and verse, and, in most in stances, the words of those writers; and it will be necessary to prove the latter to be worthless before the weight of our statements can be diminished by one tittle.

Genre:

Excerpt from Godfrey Malvern, or the Life of an Author Within a country churchyard, which stood upon the gentle slope of a green hill-side, -its summit crowned with a grey, old, and weather beaten church, - stood a young man dressed in deep mourning; his forehead half buried in the palm of his hand, while his elbow rested on the top of a tall gravestone. The tombstone was partly covered with a rich, short, orange-coloured lichen, such as is often seen on old ruins, or giving an additional beauty to the picturesque in landscape scenery. In the present instance, however, it was fast obliterating the workman ship of some forgotten village-sculpture, and already half concealed a very plump cherub, who with wings placed cross wise on his breast, and huge swollen cheeks, seemed endeavouring in vain to blow away the destructive creepers which were rapidly overgrowing both himself and his stony trumpet. As for the poor inhabitant below, not a letter was visible to tell of either his name or his age; and a. Grim death's-head, that stood grinning from a neighbouring gravestone - as if it had long watched the slow working of decay, -now seemed to gaze in triumph at the victory which Time had once more obtained over Human Vanity.

Shaw

Author: Gale K. Larson
Publisher: Penn State Press
ISBN: 0271021276
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Literary Criticism

SHAW 21 offers readers an eclectic perspective on Shaw, his works, and his contemporaries. Basil Langton, actor and director, reminisces about his early development as an actor, his meeting with Shaw, and his career as director of many of Shaw's plays. He focuses upon Shaw's stagecraft, augmenting his views with those of Sybil Thorndike and Sir Lewis Casson, whom he interviewed in 1960. Galen Goodwin Longstreth analyzes the correspondence between Shaw and Ellen Terry and argues that the exchange is itself a literary genre, a dramatic performance that reveals their personal identities. The next two contributors, Stanley Weintraub and Andrea Adolph, examine the Shaw/Virginia Woolf relationship. Weintraub focuses on those occasions when their respective lives touched each other, what their feelings for each other were, and how those occasions were obliquely woven into Shaw's plays, most notably Heartbreak House. Professor Adoph argues that in Woolf's only dramatic text, Freshwater: A Comedy, she was conforming to the traditional theatrical mode of the day, dominated, of course, by Shaw, but that she subverted his traditional literary depiction of paternity as, for example, the paternity dramatized in Major Barbara. Sidney Albert and Bernard Dukore provide unique perspectives on reading Major Barbara. Albert shows how John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress serves as Shaw's source for Barbara's progress toward enlightened understanding. Dukore, focusing on the perspective of the familial relationship within the play, concludes that Shaw's dialectic gives the kids the future and not the dad. It will be the next generation, not Father Undershaft, who will determine where society will go next. Julie Sparks and Martin Bucco approach Shaw from a comparative basis, juxtaposing him with two American writers, contemporaries of Shaw, Mark Twain and Sinclair Lewis, respectively. Sparks explores the commonality that exists in Shaw's and Twain's thinking about evolution, namely, their heretical visions of a post-Darwinian Eden. Both viewed conventional Christianity iconoclastically, but both arrived at different conclusions about human origin and destiny, a view Sparks describes as emanating from the deist-pessimist-evolutionary-determinist perspective versus the mystic-optimistic-creative-evolutionist perspective, or the Personal Godhead versus the Impersonal Force. Professor Bucco enumerates the many references Sinclair Lewis makes to Bernard Shaw throughout his writings, both prose and fiction, to underscore the American novelist's admiration for the Irish playwright, both recipients of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The final two contributors to SHAW 21, Rodelle Weintraub and William Doan, provide the readers with distinctive perspectives on John Bull's Other Island and The Doctor's Dilemma, respectively. Weintraub recasts the play into a dream sequence whereby Doyle's dream becomes an artifice for problem solving. Implied within Father Keegan's lines in the play, "Every dream is a prophecy: every jest is an earnest in the womb of Time," is the resolution of Doyle's problem with Nora, the girl he had left behind, and of the dream of modernizing Roscullen. Doan suggests that in The Doctor's Dilemma Shaw uses the idea of unconsummated adultery to argue for the efficacy of art over science. In the conflict between the artist and the scientist, the latter plans to have the artist's muse. In the end, not only is he deprived of the wife but also of the works of art themselves and the spirit that animates them. SHAW 21 also includes three reviews of recent additions to Shavian scholarship as well as John R. Pfeiffer's "Continuing Checklist of Shaviana."

Classical Cats

Author: Donald W. Engels
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134692866
Release Date: 2015-12-08
Genre: History

This is the definitive book on classical cats. The cat has played a significant role in history from the earliest times. Well known is its role in the religion and art of ancient Egypt, no less than its association with witchcraft in the Middle Ages. But when did the cat become a domestic companion and worker as well? There has been much debate about the position of the cat in ancient Greece and Rome. Artistic representations are sometimes ambiguous, and its role as a mouse-catcher seems often to have been carried out by weasels. Yet other evidence clearly suggests that the cat was as important to Greeks and Romans as it is to many modern people. This book is the first comprehensive survey of the evidence for cats in Greece and Rome, and of their functions and representations in art. Donald Engels draws on authors from Aesop to Aristotle; on vase-painting, inscriptions and the plastic arts; and on a thorough knowledge of zoology of the cat. He also sets the ancient evidence in the wider context of the Egyptian period that preceded it, as well as the views of the Church fathers who ushered antiquity into the Middle Ages.

Final Report on the Battlefield of Gettysburg Vol 2 Classic Reprint

Author: New York Monuments Commission
Publisher: Forgotten Books
ISBN: 036539808X
Release Date: 2018-03-23
Genre: History

Excerpt from Final Report on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, Vol. 2 It would take too much time to attempt a description of that fight. In tt we lost in killed and wounded, Deming, Moore, Spencer, Gregory, and a good share of our men. It was fought after dark, and we aimed our muskets at the flash of the enemy's rifles. Towards morning we withdrew, and agatu formed our lines at Malvern Hill. This was a magnificent battle. The enemy were thoroughly whipped, but there was no one in authority to direct. An onward movement; consequently the army fell back to Harrison's Landing. In due, or rather dilatory, course of time, with our corps we were again on the old camp ground of the winter before; then, at Arlington Heights; and finally, after Pope was beaten, we reached Centreville. We ought to have been in the Second Bull Run. One or more people ought to have been killed by slow torture, for this damnable blundering - or worse. Again, movements were started that resulted in the battle of Antietam, where brave fighting was done by piece-meal; where Lee ought to have been crushed, and where he wasn't. In this battle the Sixty-first, I believe, did the most brilliant thing in its career, in the capture of more of the enemy than it had men. And where Captain Greig took a Rebel battle flag. This was due to the generalship of Barlow. Here, on account of a dangerous wound, we parted company with the man who had up to that date given us a special character. Barlow was to lead us as colonel no more. When he rejoined the army, it was as general of a brigade in the Eleventh Corps. It was fortunate for us that the next in command was Nelson A. Miles. It is rare that any regi ment has at one time two such men. While at Harper's Ferry, or on the way to Fredericksburg, a new company, under Captain Bain, reached us, and about doubled our numbers. On Decem ber 13, 1862, we had a losing hand in the slaughter at Fredericksburg. It is said that while we were lying down on the right side of the road, behind the close-board fence, that Miles was prospecting, and had sent back for permis sion to charge the rifle pits beyond. If such is the case it was lucky for us, that a bullet clipped his throat in time to prevent such an heroic act; had it been done, some of us, who to-day can enjoy a good dinner, would have added our names to the list of killed in battle. Miles recovered in time to lead the regiment at Chancellorsville, where he gained great credit by soldiership while in charge of the picket line. Our losses were not heavy in this campaign aside from Miles, who was dangerously wounded and never served again with the regiment. Lieutenant Colonel Broady succeeded him.
