Essex’S International Agenda In 1595 And His Device Of The Indian Prince, Linda Shenk 2013 Iowa State University

Essex’S International Agenda In 1595 And His Device Of The Indian Prince, Linda Shenk

English Publications

In the fall of 1595, Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, was poised to attain political greatness, and he knew it. The international political climate had become sufficiently precarious that a statesman with Essex‘s particular expertise in foreign intelligence and military matters possessed skills well-tailored to address England’s current crises. Spain was once again preparing to invade, this time with an armada greater than in 1588; relations with England’s key ally France were cooling; and the financial and military advantages of asserting a presence in the New World were becoming increasingly evident. Aware of this moment as opportune ...

Capturing A Pivotal Moment: The Genesis Of ‘Towards Break Of Day’ By William Butler Yeats, Barry Devine 2012 University of Miami

Capturing A Pivotal Moment: The Genesis Of ‘Towards Break Of Day’ By William Butler Yeats, Barry Devine

Barry Devine

William Butler Yeats and his wife, George, were married in October, 1917. Their marriage marks a pivotal point in Yeats’s writing career. This is the point at which he began his philosophical work, A Vision, and at which he wrote many of the poems in his collection Michael Robartes and the Dancer. The drafting of one poem in particular captures elements of the pre-marriage and post-marriage periods of his life. The Yeats who begins to write ‘Towards Break of Day’ is a very different man than the one who completed it, and the poem itself goes through drastic changes ...


"Collective Commerce And The Problem Of Autobiography", Andrew Kopec 2012 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

"Collective Commerce And The Problem Of Autobiography", Andrew Kopec

Andrew Kopec

This essay partakes in an ongoing conversation about the importance of economics to Olaudah Equiano's slave narrative. I argue that Equiano's text links the singular autobiographical subject to a future collective of Africans schooled in the protocols of international commerce. Equiano's text, I suggest, imagines this collective commerce as a solution to the evils of chattel slavery.

Upton Sinclair. In L. Salinger, Encyclopedia Of White-Collar & Corporate Crime (2nd Edition), Pp. 854- 855. Thousands Oaks, Ca: Sage Publications., Krishna Bista

Krishna Bista

In the history of corporate crime in America, Sinclair and other muckraking journalists focused on contemporary scandals such as the poor sanitation in food-processing plants, the large-scale adulteration of meat products, and the false claims of medicine advertisements, leading to massive public outrage. Sinclair’s writing drew the attention of the government as well as the public. Sinclair’s The Jungle not only caused a public uproar but also President Theodore Roosevelt read it and invited Sinclair to the White House to discuss the Chicago working situations of immigrants that he depicted in his novel. Sinclair contributed in the formulation ...


Re-Orientalisation And The Pursuit Of Ecstasy: Remembering Homeland In Prisoner Of Tehran, Esmaeil Zeiny 2012 Ikmas, ukm, Malaysia

Re-Orientalisation And The Pursuit Of Ecstasy: Remembering Homeland In Prisoner Of Tehran, Esmaeil Zeiny

Esmaeil Zeiny

The Western literary market is saturated with the Middle Eastern women memoirs since 9/11. What caused this saturation lies in the curiosity of the West to know about the Middle Easterners after 9/11 and the following President Bush’s ‘Axis of Evil’ speech addressed to Iran, North Korea and Iraq, followed by launching his ‘war on terror’ project. This was the time when an influx of memoirs by and about Iranian women has emerged. This paper examines Marina Nemat’s memories of her birthland in her memoir, Prisoner of Tehran. Utilizing Dabashi’s concept of ‘native informer’, Bhabha ...


Critical Pedagogy Of A Post-9/11 Muslim Memoir, Esmaeil Zeiny 2012 Ikmas, ukm, Malaysia

Critical Pedagogy Of A Post-9/11 Muslim Memoir, Esmaeil Zeiny

Esmaeil Zeiny

Traditional education of literature would do injustice to both students and the discipline in this age of globalization. This is the era when teachers should use critical pedagogy to teach any genre of literature. Nowadays, a great number of memoirs form the Middle East perpetuate Islamophobia; yet some of them are taught at schools in the West. Perpetrating and perpetuating Islamophobia, as a trait of globalization, can be seen in some Iranian diasporic writings as well. This paper examines Persepolis: The story of a childhood, a diasporic Iranian memoir that is included in the educational curriculum of some Western schools ...

Virginia Woolf's Publishing Archive, John K. Young 2012 Marshall University

Virginia Woolf's Publishing Archive, John K. Young

John K. Young

Woolf the publisher remains that “drab figure in the gray overalls” for many Woolf scholars, despite an abundance of archival material documenting Woolf’s role as publisher. The most familiar Woolf archives are of course the manuscripts and drafts, many now in print, that have inescapably changed the way we read Woolf’s published texts.
