Breaking the Bounds: British Feminist Dramatists Writing in the Mainstream since c. 1980

Breaking the Bounds: British Feminist Dramatists Writing in the Mainstream since c. 1980 (American University Studies Series Xxvi Theatre Arts) by Dimple Godiwala
Peter Lang International Academic Publishers | May 9, 2003 | English | ISBN: 0820461350 | 225 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Breaking the Bounds focuses on second-wave feminism as a rupture in an unbroken episteme of Western patriarchy analyzed with regard to British dramatic discourse. The theoretical framework is a genealogy of patriarchy deploying and developing Foucault’s ideas on discourse to apply to a deconstruction of Western patriarchy. An analysis of feminist drama texts is used to support the argument that Western patriarchy consists of one unbroken episteme as the patriarchal impulse substrates the epistemological breaks indicated by Foucault. The theoretical text speaks of the twentieth-century feminist rupture from patriarchy, analyzing in detail the texts of five mainstream feminist dramatists who have successfully effected an intervention in the British grand récit of undeniably male dramatic discourse.

British Romantic Literature and the Emerging Modern Greek Nation

British Romantic Literature and the Emerging Modern Greek Nation By Alexander Grammatikos
English | EPUB | 2018 | 229 Pages | ISBN : 3319904396 | 0.8 MB

British Romantic Literature and the Emerging Modern Greek Nation makes an original contribution to the field of British Romantic Hellenism (and Romanticism more broadly) by emphasizing the diversity of Romantic-era writers’ attitudes towards, and portrayals of, Modern Greece. Whereas, traditionally, studies of British Romantic Hellenism have predominantly focused on Europe’s preoccupation with an idealized Ancient Greece, this study emphasizes the nuanced and complex nature of British Romantic writers’ engagements with Modern Greece. Specifically, the book emphasizes the ways that early nineteenth-century British literature about contemporary Greece helped to strengthen British-Greek intercultural relations and, ultimately, to situate Greece within a European sphere of influence.

The War Against the Pirates: British and American Suppression of Caribbean Piracy in the Early Nineteenth Century By Barry Gough
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 233 Pages | ISBN : 0230354815 | 4.16 MB

Based on hitherto unused sources in English and Spanish in British and American archives, in this book naval historian Barry Gough and legal authority Charles Borras investigate a secret Anglo-American coercive war against Spain, 1815-1835. Described as a war against piracy at the time, the authors explore how British and American interests – diplomatic and military – aligned to contain Spanish power to the critically influential islands of Cuba and Puerto Rico, facilitating the forging of an enduring but unproclaimed Anglo-American alliance which endures to this day.
