Description: This book, which won the University of Delaware Press's 1992 competition in eighteenth-century studies, argues that Samuel Richardson's Clarissa is constructed from three different plot structures. The Tested Woman plot, whose archetypes are found in the biblical stories of Eve and Job and whose best known literary expressions occur in Renaissance drama, is a social plot examining the patriarchal conflicts of Clarissa's world by means of a test of her obedience to familial authority, followed by a trial that publicly judges the choices she has made. The novel's other two plots represent the opposed life trajectories of the central characters. The Don Juan plot, a literary artifact of the Enlightenment, carries Lovelace through the existential traumas of the rake's unassuageable desire to his obligatory encounter with the figure of Death. The Prudence plot, a narrative voicing the tradition of Christianized classical virtue ethics, organizes Clarissa's living and dying in terms of her pursuit of excellence and presents her completed self to the judgment of God. In discussing how the Tested Woman plot controls the novel's structure, Lois E. Bueler demonstrates the sophistication with which Richardson exploits the stereotypical character functions of temptation, accusation, defense, and judgment brought to bear upon the tested woman, and shows how the novel's most radical permutation of this plot, its undermining of the paternal authority of Mr. Harlowe, gives structural expression to the subordination of human to divine judgment which represents Richardson's didactic intention. This study also examines the connections among the plots: how Clarissa's self-scrutinizing response to the pressures of test and trial, and her refusal to achieve respectability at the expense of her integrity, is explained by her pursuit of Christian prudence; and how Lovelace's inability to fathom the disappearance of his tempter function after the rape, as well as his inability to respond as does Belford to Clarissa's exemplary influence, is an expression of his nature as protagonist in the Don Juan plot. Richardson conducts all three plots concurrently, Bueler demonstrates, by exploiting the psychologically and dramatistically rich resources of simultaneous dialogue and soliloquy inherent in the epistolary genre. And she suggests that the participatory nature of the trial phase of the Tested Woman plot, which lures readers to adopt the functions of accusation, defense, and judgment brought to bear upon the woman at its center, helps account for the intensely partisan, judgmental reactions that readers have always had to Richardson's great novel.

Description: DescriptionClarissa: or arrested innocence is a poignant collection of poems written by a mother in response to her daughter's severe mental illness. These poems, crafted by an experienced poet, probe the pain of psychosis. The poet lays bare the isolation and frustration felt by the sufferer. She compares mental illness with the dangers of high speed motorbike racing. She draws on the legend of the Sleeping Beauty, the poems of Blake, Hopkins and Shakespeare, as well as using scenes from Scotland's beautiful West Coast, from Edinburgh, St Petersburg and Warsaw to offer wide-ranging word pictures on a single theme: schizophrenia. About the AuthorJenny Robertson is an experienced writer author of over thirty five books for adults and children, both fiction and non-fiction, including three collections of her own poetry. Her work has been read on Scottish Television and BBC radio and has been widely translated. She has taken part in poetry readings in Scotland, Russia and Poland. Jenny's world fell apart when her daughter spiralled into deep psychosis. Her response to this tragedy is contained in the poems she offers here. "Wrenchingly beautiful, these poems offer one of the few consolations that suffering affords: that it sometimes prompts great art into life" - Dr Richard Holloway, Chairman of the Scottish Arts Council and Patron of the National Schizophrenia Fellowship (Scotland) "Each word falls bright and singing on the stones of our world." - Leading Scottish poet, George Mackay Brown

Description: Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace and places herself under his protection. Lovelace, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome and increasingly brutal sexual advances. And yet, Clarissa finds his charm alluring, her scrupulous sense of virtue tinged with unconfessed desire. Told through a complex series of interweaving letters, Clarissa is a richly ambiguous study of a fatally attracted couple and a work of astonishing power and immediacy. A huge success when it first appeared in 1747, and translated into French and German, it remains one of the greatest of all European novels.

Description: "Clarissa" on the Continent defines and explores two strategies of literary translation—creative vs. preservative and strong vs. weak—as they transform one of the most influential English novels. Thomas Beebee compares the two opposing strategies as they influence the French translation of Clarissa by the novelist Antione François de Prévost and the German translation by the Göttingen Orientalist Johann David Michaelis, and in doing so he demonstrates that each translator found authority for his procedure within the text itself. Each translation is also examined in light of Richardson's other writings and placed in its literary and cultural context. This study uses translations in order to interpret Clarissa, to show how the basis for the novel's reception on the Continent was laid, and to explore the differences and interactions among three literary and cultural systems of the eighteenth century. The close examination of these two important translations enable the formulation of not only a theory of creative vs. preservative translation but also the interconnections between literary theory and translation theory. Beebee also looks at later translations of Clarissa as products of literary and historical change and at Prévostian strategies of the novel.

Description: New York Times-Bestselling Author: A “compelling and memorable” novel of a frustrated woman’s ordinary life suddenly taking flight (Lincoln Journal Star). Set amid the lush pine forests and rich savannahs of Florida’s Northern Panhandle, this novel tells the story of one woman whose life until now has been fairly normal. She’s thirtysomething and married and goes about her daily routine. But we soon discover that Clarissa’s life has been burdened by ghosts and an indifferent husband—and like a butterfly in a chrysalis, she is poised on the precipice of great change. Today, for the first time in her predictable existence, she has awakened to the realization that she has had enough. Suddenly, wanting nothing more than to spread her wings and set her heart free, Clarissa will have to find a way to do the unthinkable . . . “Florida novelist Clarissa Burden is suffering from writer’s block. She lacks no creativity when daydreaming up death scenarios for her philandering buffoon of a husband, but when it comes time to put fingers to keyboard, her mind is blank. However, on June 21, 2006 (the longest, hottest day of the year), Clarissa will encounter no less than a multitude of ghosts, a one-armed angel, a one-eyed man, a sexy young love interest, a dwarf circus, and a host of critters. Each one in some way will grant her the courage it will take to escape the dull monotony of her day-to-day existence and write a new story.” —Booklist “Magical, funny, at times heartbreaking . . . Compact and enchanting, yet achingly dark, it reminds me of the novels of Alice McDermott and Alice Hoffman that I love to read.” —Mary Morris, author of Gateway to the Moon “Funny and heartening.” —The Miami Herald

Description: This classic novel tells the story, in letters, of the beautiful and virtuous Clarissa Harlowe’s pursuit by the brilliant, unscrupulous rake Robert Lovelace. The epistolary structure allows Richardson to create layered and fully realized characters, as well as an intriguing uncertainty about the reliability of the various “narrators.” Clarissa emerges as a heroine at once rational and passionate, self-sacrificing and defiant, and her story has gripped readers since the novel’s first publication in 1747–48. This new abridgment is designed to retain the novel’s rich characterizations and relationships, and reproduces individual letters in their entirety whenever possible. This Broadview Edition provides a uniquely accessible entry point for readers, while retaining much of the powerful reading experience of the complete novel.

Description: Using socially and culturally engaged discourse stylistics, Fulton explores ideologies of social formation, gender, and sexuality in the novel. The first part of the study, "Styles of Meaning," discusses Richardson's use of the genres of sententiousness (moral sentiments and proverbs) to engage questions of ideology. Fulton shows how Richardson draws on the socially significant difference between proverbs and maxims to develop contrasting styles in which his characters establish and defend personal identities in relation to family and friends. The second part, "Meanings of Style," explores ways in which meanings created through linguistic choices in the critical domains of gender and sexuality both sustain and sometimes betray characters struggling either to control or to resist being controlled by others. A contribution to both critical discussion of eighteenth-century fiction and to discourse stylistics committed to relating literary texts to their social and cultural contexts, this study introduces a mode of literary stylistic analysis with exciting possibilities for cultural studies.

Description: No one questions the horrific impact of the Civil War on America, but few realize its effect on American Indians. Residents of Indian Territory found the war especially devastating. Their homeland was beset not only by regular army operations but also by guerillas and bushwhackers. Complicating the situation even further, Cherokee men fought for the Union as well as the Confederacy and created their own “brothers’ war.” This book offers a broad overview of the war as it affected the Cherokees—a social history of a people plunged into crisis. The Cherokee Nation in the Civil War shows how the Cherokee people, who had only just begun to recover from the ordeal of removal, faced an equally devastating upheaval in the Civil War. Clarissa W. Confer illustrates how the Cherokee Nation, with its sovereign status and distinct culture, had a wartime experience unlike that of any other group of people—and suffered perhaps the greatest losses of land, population, and sovereignty. Confer examines decision-making and leadership within the tribe, campaigns and soldiering among participants on both sides, and elements of civilian life and reconstruction. She reveals how a centuries-old culture informed the Cherokees’ choices, with influences as varied as matrilineal descent, clan affiliations, economic distribution, and decentralized government combining to distinguish the Native reaction to the war. The Cherokee Nation in the Civil War recalls a people enduring years of hardship while also struggling for their future as the white man’s war encroached on the physical and political integrity of their nation.

Description: This book seeks to understand the investigation and settlement of employer/employee disputes within companies. It argues that there is effectively no democratic knowledge about, or control over, corporate security, due to companies' preference for private, out-of-court settlements when faced with norm violations raised by employees. This book fills the knowledge gap by providing an overview of the corporate security sector including legal frameworks and an analysis of the role and powers of private investigative services, inhouse security, forensic accountants and forensic legal investigators. It draws on close observation, case studies and interviews with practitioners in and around the industry. Corporate Investigations, Corporate Justice and Public-Private Relations also looks at public-private relationships in this sector to propose policy remedies applicable to all corporate security providers, regardless of the disparate professional backgrounds and skill-sets of their staff.

Description: The first comprehensive biography of Mary Granville Delany – the artist and court insider whose flower collages, in particular, continue to inspire widespread admirationMrs Delany is best remembered for her captivating paper collages of flowers, but her artistic flourishing came late in life. This nuanced, deeply researched biography pulls back the lens to place Delany’s art in the broader context of her family life, relationships with royalty, and her endeavor to live as an independent woman.Clarissa Campbell Orr, a noted authority on the eighteenth century court, charts Mary Delany’s development from a young woman at the heart of elite circles to beloved godmother and celebrated collagist. Orr traces the varied connections Mary Delany fostered throughout her life and which influenced her intellectual and artistic development: she was friends with prominent figures such as Methodist leader, John Wesley, composer G. F. Handel, the writer Jonathan Swift, and England’s leading patron of science, Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland. Mrs Delany reveals its subject to be far more than a widow befriended by George III and Queen Charlotte; she is, instead, restored to her proper place in the era’s aristocratic society –and as a ground-breaking artist.
