Thomas Hardy's reputation as a poet is higher now than it has ever been. It is generally agreed that the Poems of 1912-13, written in memory of his first wife, are some of the greatest elegies in the language. This invaluable new study concentrates on the 'Emma Poems', setting them in the context of Hardy's troubled first marriage, then analysing them one by one. John Greening - a poet himself and author of the Greenwich Exchange Guides to Poets of the First World War and W.B. Yeats - highlights the distinctive music of this twenty-one poem 'suite', while exploring the sexual and spiritual tensions concealed witihn Hardy's Dorsetshire and North Cornish landscapes.

Existence as a Real Property

The Ontology of Meinongianism
Author: Francesco Berto
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 940074207X
Category: Philosophy
Page: 242

This profound exploration of one of the core notions of philosophy—the concept of existence itself—reviews, then counters (via Meinongian theory), the mainstream philosophical view running from Hume to Frege, Russell, and Quine, summarized thus by Kant: “Existence is not a predicate.” The initial section of the book presents a comprehensive introduction to, and critical evaluation of, this mainstream view. The author moves on to provide the first systematic survey of all the main Meinongian theories of existence, which, by contrast, reckon existence to be a real, full-fledged property of objects that some things possess, and others lack. As an influential addition to the research literature, the third part develops the most up-to-date neo-Meinongian theory called Modal Meinongianism, applies it to specific fields such as the ontology of fictional objects, and discusses its open problems, laying the groundwork for further research. In accordance with the latest trends in analytic ontology, the author prioritizes a meta-ontological viewpoint, adopting a dual definition of meta-ontology as the discourse on the meaning of being, and as the discourse on the tools and methods of ontological enquiry. This allows a balanced assessment of philosophical views on a cost-benefit basis, following multiple criteria for theory evaluation. Compelling and revealing, this new publication is a vital addition to contemporary philosophical ontology.

1982, Janine

Author: Alasdair Gray

ISBN: 1847674445
Category: Fiction
Page: 352

An unforgettably challenging book about power and powerlessness, men and women, masters and servants, small countries and big countries, Alasdair Gray's exploration of the politics of pornography has lost none of its power to shock. 1982, Janine is a searing portrait of male need and inadequacy, as explored via the lonely sexual fantasies of Jock McLeish, failed husband, lover and businessman. Yet there is hope here, and the humour (if black) and the imaginative and textual energy of the narrative achieves its own kind of redemption in the end.

Images of Women

Francisco Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) created magnificent paintings, tapestry designs, prints and drawings over the course of his long and productive career. Women frequently appeared as the subjects of Goya's works, from his painted cartoons for the Royal Tapestry Factory to his stunning portraits of some of the most powerful women in Madrid. This text examines the representations of women within Goya's multifaceted art, and in so doing, it sheds light on the evolution of his artistic creativity as well as on the roles assumed by women in late-18th- and early-19th-century Spain.

The Flaming Womb

Repositioning Women in Early Modern Southeast Asia
Author: Barbara Watson Andaya
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
ISBN: 0824829557
Category: Social Science
Page: 335

The Princess of the Flaming Womb, the Javanese legend that introduces this pioneering study, symbolizes the many ambiguities attached to femaleness in Southeast Asian societies. Yet, despite these ambiguities, the relatively egalitarian nature of male-female relations in Southeast Asia is central to arguments claiming a coherent identity for the region. This challenging work by senior scholar Barbara Watson Andaya considers such contradictions while offering a thought-provoking view of Southeast Asian history that focuses on women's roles and perceptions. Andaya explores the broad themes of the early modern era (1500-1800) - the introduction of new religions, major economic shifts, changing patterns of state control, the impact of elite lifestyles and behaviors - drawing on an extraordinary range of sources and citing numerous examples from Thai, Vietnamese, Burmese, Philippine, and Malay societies.

Thomas Hardy, born in rural obscurity in early Victorian Dorset, had become by the time of his death more than eighty years later the most famous writer in the English-speaking world. These fascinating letters provide an invaluable look into his life from the years as an unknown architect's assistant in London in the 1860s to the final period of amazing old-age productivity in the relative isolation of Max Gate. More than 300 letters, selected from the seven-volume Clarendon Press edition of The Collected Letters of Thomas Hardy, emphasize his personal rather than his purely professional relationships. They include correspondence with his family, his two wives, and close friends Edmund Gosse and Florence Henniker, and address other notable figures, among them Walter de la Mare, Millicent Fawcett, Harley Granville Barker, Ezra Pound, Marie Stopes, Robert Louis Stevenson, Algernon Charles Swinburne, and Virginia Woolf. Millgate provides annotations and editorial commentaries to individual letters or sequences of letters to place them within the broader contexts of Hardy's life and literary career.
