The Twenty-Ninth George Eliot Memorial Lecture, 2000 "George Eliot For The Twenty-First Century: Middlemarch And The Poetry Of Prosaic Conditions", Barbara Hardy Jan 2001

The Twenty-Ninth George Eliot Memorial Lecture, 2000 "George Eliot For The Twenty-First Century: Middlemarch And The Poetry Of Prosaic Conditions", Barbara Hardy

The George Eliot Review

Jerome Beaty should have given this lecture: 1 I have spoken and written in celebration of his scholarship and record that I was sad to be speaker not listener. Taking his amusingly grandiose title I place mine after it, and discussing Middlemarch and its poetry of (and in) prosaic conditions, respect his theme. I consider George Eliot's poetic language in Middlemarch at a time when many poets and novelists are interested in generic crossing and dislocation (as they have been in different ways from modernism to post-modernism) but when critics are less concerned with George Eliot's art, and ...


Japanese Branch Report 2000, Yukiko Ono Jan 2001

Japanese Branch Report 2000, Yukiko Ono

The George Eliot Review

The fourth annual convention of the George Eliot Fellowship of Japan was held at Kinki University in Osaka on Saturday, 25 November 2000.

The morning session began with a welcome speech by Norio Murase, Dean of the Literature Department of Kinki University. He said, 'George Eliot seems to be similar to Nukada-noookimi, a famous poet of Mayoshu, the oldest collected Japanese verses, in the seventh century, not in appearance, but in abundance of feeling.'

The first paper, 'Clothing in Janet's Repentance', was presented by Masae Ukawa, a full-time lecturer at Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts. She observed ...


Letter To The Editor, 2001, Barbara Hardy Jan 2001

Letter To The Editor, 2001, Barbara Hardy

The George Eliot Review

The welcome purchase by the British Library of George Eliot / Jane Senior letters isn't always reported accurately. In a recent Woman's Hour Kathryn Hughes seemed to imply the correspondence was new to scholars. Haight's Yale Edition contains ten letters from George Eliot to Jane Senior, including three of the series in the news. The unpublished letters extend and stimulate existing knowledge. We shall discuss this and other subjects at a two-day symposium to be held at the University of London Institute of English Studies on 17-18 January 2002.


Middlemarch And Belinda, Graham Handley Jan 2001

Middlemarch And Belinda, Graham Handley

The George Eliot Review

Middlemarch and Rhoda Broughton's Belinda (1883) have often been cited as benchmarks in the much wider debate concerning Mark Pattison and his wife Emily Francis, later Lady Dilke. Among other novels with alleged Pattison derivations are W. H. Mallock's The New Republic (1877), Mrs. Humphry Ward's Robert Elsmere (1888), and Robert Liddell's The Almond Tree (1938), the latter apparently deftly drawn from the Pattison papers in the Bodleian. Apologists occupying the Pattison patch include John Sparrow and Vivian Green,’ while Pattison's own Memoirs (1885) are essential to any understanding of this alternately admired and vilified ...


Nobody's Daughters: Dicken's Tattycoram And George Eliot's Caterina Sarti, Beryl Gray Jan 2001

Nobody's Daughters: Dicken's Tattycoram And George Eliot's Caterina Sarti, Beryl Gray

The George Eliot Review

Doughty Street, where Dickens lived for three years (1836-9), is within a stone's throw of the site of London's Hospital for Foundling Children, which was established in 1739 by the retired sea-captain, Thomas Coram, whom Dickens venerated. Tavistock House - Dickens's home 1851-60, and where he wrote Little Dorrit, the novel in which Tattycoram appears - was also only a short walk from the Hospital.

Dickens entirely approved of the way the 'Foundling' was managed in his own day. The Household Words article 'Received, a Blank Child’,' which he co-authored with his sub-editor, W. H. Wills, unreservedly praises the ...


Address At The Wreath-Laying In The George Eliot Memorial Garden, Nuneaton 18 June 2000 Jan 2001

Address At The Wreath-Laying In The George Eliot Memorial Garden, Nuneaton 18 June 2000

The George Eliot Review

To be asked to lay a wreath and say a few words in celebration of George Eliot, the great authoress, is an honour, I am sure that most of you here today have much more knowledge and understanding of her life and works than I do, but having spent my childhood at Arbury and living there now with my wife and children, I believe that I have a small bond.

It is astounding to think that she, who is so much a part of the fabric of Arbury, is a world famous figure. Her talent was acknowledged during her lifetime ...


Address Wreath-Laying In Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey 21 June 2000, Jonathan G. Ouvry Jan 2001

Address Wreath-Laying In Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey 21 June 2000, Jonathan G. Ouvry

The George Eliot Review

When Gabriel Woolf was standing here a few years ago, he told us the various things that he was not, in relation to George Eliot; for example, that he was not an author fresh from the triumph of the latest biography or other learned work, or an academic (though there I think he does himself an injustice). I too am not any of the things which very often distinguish the wreath laying guest on this important occasion in the George Eliot Fellowship's calendar. Among the many things which I am not, is any kind of blood relation of George ...


Opening Of The Garden At The George Eliot Hospital Nuneaton, 9 July 2000, Serena Evans Jan 2001

Opening Of The Garden At The George Eliot Hospital Nuneaton, 9 July 2000, Serena Evans

The George Eliot Review

When I was asked to come here to open this lovely garden I wondered what on earth I could say about George Eliot that you hadn't thought, read, written or said already - and then I decided that I should talk about the one thing that you don't know about, and that is what has meant to be George Eliot's great- great- great-niece.

It wasn't a thing I questioned when I was little, it just was; at home the book shelves were full of leather bound volumes of her novels and the downstairs loo had pictures on ...


American Branch Report, Linda K. Roberston Jan 2001

American Branch Report, Linda K. Roberston

The George Eliot Review

Dr. Linda K. Robertson reports that a small group of members and friends met for dinner in St. Louis, Missouri in November and it is hoped this might become a regular event. Vast distances preclude members in the USA meeting as a branch but there are at present 33 annual members there and 49 life members. One of the latter, George Griffith delivered a paper on 'George Eliot’s Photographed Face and the Gaze of Public Celebrity' at the conference of Victorian Interdisciplinary Studies Association of the Western United States in October. The parent Fellowship in England would welcome news ...


Annual Report 2000, Kathleen Adams Jan 2001

Annual Report 2000, Kathleen Adams

The George Eliot Review

2000, the Millennium Year, proved to be a mixture of success and some disappointment. The Fellowship Council planned many extra events for so auspicious a year; some were very successful, others were not. Indeed, many of us felt that the excitement of the Millennium had faded by the end of January!

The year began for us with the sad news of the death of our Patron, Viscount Daventry. Several members attended his funeral service at Astley ('Knebley') Church and we were also represented at the Memorial Service later in St Mary's Church in Warwick. Viscount Daventry had been our ...

A Comparison Of The Health Beliefs Of Florence Nightingale And Ellen G. White And The Incorporation Of Them Into Their Respective Schools Of Nursing, Ruth Duncan Abbott

Dissertations

This study explored the similarities and differences of the health beliefs of Ellen G. White and Florence Nightingale and how these beliefs were incorporated into each of their respective schools of nursing, the Nightingale Training School for Nurses at St. Thomas' Hospital and the Medical Missionary Training School for Nurses at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan. The research also examined the contextual factors that shaped each woman's philosophy and influenced the manner in which they carried out their work. Additionally, the research provides information about the historical context surrounding the beginnings of modern nursing, education, health ...

Shakespearean Deference To Female Virgin Power, Phyllis Nichols Jan 2001

Shakespearean Deference To Female Virgin Power, Phyllis Nichols

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

This project concerns the ways in which Shakespearean literature becomes translated into political theory. T considers the way Shakespeare captures characteristics of Queen Elizabeth I-portraying her as the era's political icon through his plays. He shows her deference by immortalizing her legacy with strong women characters while limiting them to a level of power beneath her. Using The Merchant of Venice, The Tempest, and Othello, the Moor of Venice -plays juxtaposing elements of gender, race, and orthodoxy - the paper shows behavioral patterns linking the plays' patriarchs to King Henry VIII. Shylock, Prospero, and Brabantio each operate in the role ...


Figure, Image, And The Shape Of Time In Shakespeare's History Plays, Susan Walker Jan 2001

Figure, Image, And The Shape Of Time In Shakespeare's History Plays, Susan Walker

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

Shakespeare began his career as a dramatist by writing the first of a series of plays remarking upon English history from the Middle Ages through the reign of Henry VIII. Most notable of this historic chronicle are the eight plays, or two tetralogies, that dramatize the tumultuous period of civil conflict between 1399 and 1485. Some critics of Shakespeare's tetralogies have argued Shakespeare's intent to produce a single, unified, and providentially-ordered chronicle in which the deposition of Richard II may be viewed as the nascent event for the civil wars that culminated in Tudor accession to the crown ...
