Download or read book The Flower of Empire written by Tatiana Holway and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2013-03-01 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1837, while charting the Amazonian country of Guiana for Great Britain, German naturalist Robert Schomburgk discovered an astounding "vegetable wonder"--a huge water lily whose leaves were five or six feet across and whose flowers were dazzlingly white. In England, a horticultural nation with a mania for gardens and flowers, news of the discovery sparked a race to bring a live specimen back, and to bring it to bloom. In this extraordinary plant, named Victoria regia for the newly crowned queen, the flower-obsessed British had found their beau ideal. In The Flower of Empire, Tatiana Holway tells the story of this magnificent lily, revealing how it touched nearly every aspect of Victorian life, art, and culture. Holway's colorful narrative captures the sensation stirred by Victoria regia in England, particularly the intense race among prominent Britons to be the first to coax the flower to bloom. We meet the great botanists of the age, from the legendary Sir Joseph Banks, to Sir William Jackson Hooker, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, to the extravagant flower collector the Duke of Devonshire. Perhaps most important was the Duke's remarkable gardener, Joseph Paxton, who rose from garden boy to knight, and whose design of a series of ever-more astonishing glass-houses--one, the Big Stove, had a footprint the size of Grand Central Station--culminated in his design of the architectural wonder of the age, the Crystal Palace. Fittingly, Paxton based his design on a glass-house he had recently built to house Victoria regia. Indeed, the natural ribbing of the lily's leaf inspired the pattern of girders supporting the massive iron-and-glass building. From alligator-laden jungle ponds to the heights of Victorian society, The Flower of Empire unfolds the marvelous odyssey of this wonder of nature in a revealing work of cultural history.

In Search of the Lost World: The Modernist Quest for the Thing, Matter, and Body

Download or read book In Search of the Lost World: The Modernist Quest for the Thing, Matter, and Body written by Tsaiyi Wu and published by Vernon Press. This book was released on 2023-05-09 with total page 178 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From a historical perspective, the book studies how modernist artists, as the first generation who began to rethink intensively the legacy of German Idealism, sought to recreate the self so as to recreate their relationships with the material world. Theoretically, the book converses with the topical de-anthropocentric interests in the 21st century and proposes that the artist may escape human-centeredness through the transformation of the self. Part One, “Artificiality,” begins the discussion with the fin-de-siècle cult of artificiality, where artists such as Theophile Gautier, Charles Baudelaire, J.K. Huysmans, and Gustave Moreau dedicate themselves to love stony sphinxes, marble statues, and inorganic appearances. The cult of artificiality is a mischievous subversion to Hegel’s maxim that inwardness is superior to matter. In the cult of artificiality, art is superior to nature, though art is no longer defined as immaterial imagination but rather reconfigured as mysterious appearances that defy signification and subjugate the feeling heart. Part Two, “Auto-philosophical Fiction,” discusses the genre where the artists (Marcel Proust, Walter Pater, and Virginia Woolf) set philosophical ideas in the laboratory of their lives and therefore translate their aesthetic ideals—the way they wish to relate to the world—into a journey of self-examination and self-cultivation. In Pater’s novel 'Marius the Epicurean', the hero explores how a philosophical percept may be translated into sentiments and actions, demonstrating that literature is a unique approach to truth as it renders theory into a transformative experience. Exploring the latest findings of empiricist psychology, the artists seek to escape the Kantian trap by cultivating their powers of reception and to register passing thoughts and sensations. Together, the book argues that de-anthropocentrism cannot be predicated upon a metaphysics that presumes universal subjectivity but must be a form of aesthetic inquiry that recreates the self in order to recreate our relationships with the world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The English composer Rutland Boughton (1878-1960) is remembered as the composer of The Immortal Hour, the opera which enjoyed the greatest number of consecutive performances the world has ever known. But his contribution to modern music goes beyond this famous piece. In 1914 he established his own Beyreuth at Glastonbury where, against all odds, he ran a series of increasingly ambitious festivals until, in 1927, he allowed his socialist principles to undermine everything he had achieved. His unconventional views on life and marriage earned him notoriety in his lifetime and made him one of England's most colorful and courageous composers. Michael Hurd has radically revised and significantly expanded his 1962 biography of Boughton. With the help of his friends and colleagues, including a hilarious series from George Bernard Shaw, he charts the career of the most significant and innovative British opera composer of his day. Catalogues of Boughton's compositions and literary works, together with complete cast lists of the Glastonbury Festivals, 62 music examples, and numerous photographs, complete this definitive account of an extraordinary man and his music.

This book was released on 1999 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Major problems exist of differently diagnosing language-minority children who are in the process of learning English as a second language, and even sometimes show low levels of language proficiency. These children are often over-represented in special education classes when, in fact, they are normal children or even superior in the process of learning English as a second language. These children are also under-represented in gifted classes due to inappropriate tests and models used, as well as negative attitudes and lack of knowledge on the part of the teachers and evaluators. This edited volume seeks to increase the availability of research-derived knowledge and educational applications in the field of second-language learning. Virginia Gonzalez offers a rare and highly creative approach to second language acquisition research by applying contemporary cognitive psychology theory as a framework for investigating bilingual issues. The book offers a coherent and unified philosophy and context, presenting original research studies that provide a multidimensional socioeducational view to second-language learning and instruction in children and adults. Gonzalez and her colleagues assume the identity of the "Ethnic-Researcher," thereby emphasizing the need to include cultural and linguistic factors when studying, assessing, and instructing second-language learners.
