Radclyffe Hall

Radclyffe Hall

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/radclyffe-hall...
The Well of Loneliness is probably the most famous lesbian novel ever written, and certainly the most widely read. It contains no explicit sex scenes, yet in 1928, the year in which the novel was published, it was deemed obscene in a British court of law for its defense of sexual inversion and was forbidden for sale or import into England. Its author, Radclyffe Hall, was already well-known as a writer and West End celebrity, but the fame and notoriety of that one book has all but eclipsed a literary output of some half-dozen other novels and several volumes of poetry. In Radclyffe Hall: A Life in the Writing Richard Dellamora offers the first full look at the entire range of Hall's published and unpublished works of fiction, poetry, and autobiography and reads through them to demonstrate how she continually played with the details of her own life to help fashion her own identity as well as to bring into existence a public lesbian culture. Along the way, Dellamora revises many of the truisms about Hall that had their origins in the memoirs of her long-term partner, Una Troubridge, and that have found an afterlife in the writings of Hall's biographers. In detailing Hall's explorations of the self, Dellamora is the first seriously to consider their contexts in Freudian psychoanalysis as understood in England in the 1920s. As important, he uncovers Hall's involvement with other modes of speculative psychology, including Spiritualism, Theosophy, and an eclectic brand of Christian and Buddhist mysticism. Dellamora's Hall is a woman of complex accommodations, able to reconcile her marriage to Troubridge with her passionate affairs with other women, and her experimental approach to gender and sexuality with her conservative politics and Catholicism. She is, above all, a thinker continually inventive about the connections between selfhood and desire, a figure who has much to contribute to our own efforts to understand transgendered and transsexual existence today.

When I first started working in the high school to an outsider the place looked like a disaster and the school had a bad reputation. The worst day was when we had to break up six fights, I was involved in five of them. Most of our students were good students, some of them exceptional students. Our schools' reputation was built on the 4 or 5 percent of the students that were causing problems. Over the ten years our school has drastically improved. Of the 1000 plus students, I would say maybe 10-12 students cause serious or repeated problems. We still have, what is now, a definitely undeserved reputation, but has time goes by that will improve as well. How did the school change? The first five years it didn't. The school did not change until one administrator left and another took his place. How he made a difference is written, but his story is only a part of everything that goes on in the school. Over my ten years as a Community Aide I have had the opportunity to see much of what goes on inside a high school, from the halls, to the classrooms, to the gym, and into the offices of the administrators.
British Music Hall

British Music Hall

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/british-music-hall...
'The music hall. had no place for reticence; it was downright, it shouted, it made noise, it enjoyed itself and made the people enjoy themselves as well.' W.J. MACQUEEN POPE Music Hall lies at the root of all modern popular entertainment. With stars such as Marie Lloyd, Harry Lauder and Dan Leno, it reached its glorious, brassy height between 1890 and the First World War. In the first book on this subject for many years, Richard Anthony Baker whisks us off on a colourful and nostalgic tour of the rise and fall of British music hall. At the beginning of the nineteenth century people sang traditional songs in taverns for entertainment. This was so popular that rooms started to be added to inns for shows to be staged, and, before long, songs were being specially composed and purpose-built theatres were springing up everywhere. Britain's working class had, for the first time, its own form of public entertainment and its own breed of stars. The colour and vitality attracted serious writers and artists, as well as the future Edward VII, and music hall became simultaneously the haunt of the working classes and the avant-garde. Including stories of a clergyman who wrote music-hall sketches, a hall in Glasgow where luckless entertainers were pulled off stage by a long hooked pole, and Cockney dictionaries that helped Americans understand touring British performers, this book is a hugely engaging slice of social history, rich in humour, tragedy and bathos. As featured on BBC Radio Lincolnshire and in the Sunderland Echo.

The first volume concerns Richard Carvel's boyhood and schooldays. Orphaned at an early age, Richard is raised by his grandfather, Lionel Carvel of Carvel Hall, a wealthy loyalist respected by all sections of the community. Richard describes their way of life, his growing love for his neighbor, Dorothy Manners, and the hostility of his uncle, Grafton Carvel. Richard witnesses a demonstration against a tax collector in Annapolis as a result of the Stamp Act 1765 and grieves his grandfather by his adoption of revolutionary political views. Mr Allen, Richard's new tutor, tricks him into deceiving his ailing grandfather. Richard is tormented by the coquettishness of Dorothy. At Richard's eighteenth birthday party, he learns that she is to go to England. With the third volume, the main action of the novel begins. Through the scheming of Grafton Carvel and Mr Allen, Richard fights a duel with Lord Comyn. He is wounded, but becomes fast friends with the lord. His grandfather learns that his political opinions are unchanged but forgives him, partly through the intercession of Colonel Washington. After his recovery, Richard is attacked on the road and kidnapped. He is taken aboard a pirate ship, the Black Moll. There is a fight with a brigantine, in which the pirate ship sinks. In the fourth volume, the protagonist continues to meet with sudden reversals of fortune. Richard is rescued and befriended by the captain of the brigantine, John Paul, who is sailing to Solway. In Scotland, John Paul is shunned, and vows to turn his back on his country. They take a post chaise to London, and in Windsor meet Horace Walpole. In London they are imprisoned in a sponging-house, from where they are rescued by Lord Comyn and Dorothy. Volumes five and six are set in London, where the glamor and corruption of fashionable society forms a contrast with the plain and honest values of the emerging republic, embodied in the protagonist. Richard is introduced to London society, where Dorothy i

Jo Paso gives us his second novel of femdom fiction with a sexy and humorous twist. It's 1960's England and life on the Manor is good - if you happen to be a woman. Has there ever been a sorrier collection of men than Lord Richard ("Big Dick") Norfolk and the male employees of Norfolk Hall. By the time you've read of their treatment at the hands of the halls serving girls, stable lasses and Lady Isobel Norfolk herself you'll be in no doubt. During that time before flower power, when government ministers would actually resign if caught with a call-girl, Lord Richard Norfolk walks a tightrope between rampant promiscuity and public shame. Already having had his bacon saved after impregnating a local girl by his dominant wife, "Big Dick", as he is known to the stable-girls, takes one step too far to find himself at the mercy of Lady Isobel and her cook who are about to insist he receive the same treatment at their hands as the rest of the Hall's male employees. A state of affairs that provides a glorious opportunity for the two devious and sadistic stable girls, Foxey and Vixen. A femdom ebook from Femdom Cave.
Chapman Hall

Chapman Hall

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/chapman-hall-1...
The early seventeenth century finds Britain in a state of flux. After years of stability under Queen Elizabeth I, the accession of the Scot James I moves the island further into the ranks of Protestant countries, especially with James's sponsorship of the English-language King James Bible. James's son, Charles I, however, is married to a French Catholic. Lacking Elizabeth's skillful statesmanship, Charles tries to rule as a Divine Right monarch, but Parliament is having none of it, and many fear he will try to reinstate Catholicism. Against this backdrop, we meet rich, spoiled Andrew Selden, in line to be a Lord on his father's death, who is just as determined as Charles to have his own way and will soon discover that he cannot. At Chapman Hall, seat of the same family since the Norman Conquest, a new generation is coming into its own. Judith Waldby and Richard Chapman seem destined for a fairytale life together in the old manor house. But the country is moving inexorably toward civil war, and the lives of many are about to change, not only in Britain but in the American colonies.

The Cambridge Companion to Richard Strauss

The Cambridge Companion to Richard Strauss

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-cambridge-companion-to-...
Richard Strauss is a composer much loved among audiences throughout the world, both in the opera house and the concert hall. Despite this popularity, Strauss was for many years ignored by scholars, who considered his commercial success and his continued reliance on the tonal system to be liabilities. However, the past two decades have seen a resurgence of scholarly interest in the composer. This Companion surveys the results, focusing on the principal genres, the social and historical context, and topics perennially controversial over the last century. Chapters cover Strauss's immense operatic output, the electrifying modernism of his tone poems, and his ever-popular Lieder. Controversial topics are explored, including Strauss's relationship to the Third Reich and the sexual dimension of his works. Reintroducing the composer and his music in light of recent research, the volume shows Strauss's artistic personality to be richer and much more complicated than has been previously acknowledged.
Richard Strauss op. 150: 'Vier letzte Lieder'

Richard Strauss op. 150: 'Vier letzte Lieder'

https://www.kobo.com/us/de/ebook/richard-strauss-op-150-vier...
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, Note: 1, Universität Wien (Musikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Liederzyklen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Kompositionsphase der Vier letzten Lieder, die als Richard Strauss' letztes komplettes Werk anzusehen sind, erstreckt sich vom Ende des Jahres 1946 bis in den September 1948. Geschrieben für Sopran wurde dieser in der Schweiz entstandene Liederzyklus von Strauss von Anfang an mit Orchesterbegleitung konzipiert. Eine Transkription der Lieder für Klavier entstand später durch Max Wolff. Die Uraufführung der Vier letzten Lieder fand am 22. Mai 1950 in der Royal Albert Hall in London unter Wilhelm Furtwängler mit der Solistin Kirsten Flagstad statt. Richard Strauss selbst hat eine öffentliche Aufführung seines Op. 150 also nicht mehr erlebt, er starb bereits am 8. September 1949. Der Text des Liedes 'Im Abendrot' stammt von Joseph von Eichendorff. Strauss hat bereits Ende 1946 angefangen sich mit diesem Gedicht zu beschäftigen. Bis zur Fertigstellung des Lieds im Mai 1948 bekam Strauss durch einen Verehrer des Dichters Hermann Hesse Gedichte zugesandt, die ihm als Grundlage für die restlichen drei Lieder, 'Frühling', 'September' und 'Beim Schlafengehen', dienen sollten. Die Gedichte Hermann Hesses stammen aus unterschiedlichen Schaffensperioden, stellen im Original also keine Zyklus dar. Es sollte in diesem Zusammenhang darauf hingewiesen werden, dass in Strauss' Hinterlassenschaft Aufzeichnungen zu einem vierten Hesse-Gedicht gefunden wurden, das den Titel 'Besinnung' trägt. Es ist durchaus vorstellbar, dass Strauss dieses Lied dem Zyklus hinzufügen wollte.
