London, 1820. The British capital is a metropolis that overwhelms dwellers and visitors alike with constant exposure to all kinds of sensory stimulation. Over the next two decades, the city’s tumult will reach new heights: as population expansion places different classes in dangerous proximity and ideas of political and social reform linger in the air, London begins to undergo enormous infrastructure change that will alter it forever. It is the London of this period that editors Roger Parker and Susan Rutherford pinpoint in this book, which chooses one broad musical category—voice—and engages with it through essays on music of the streets, theaters, opera houses, and concert halls; on the raising of voices in religious and sociopolitical contexts; and on the perception of voice in literary works and scientific experiments with acoustics. Emphasizing human subjects, this focus on voice allows the authors to explore the multifaceted issues that shaped London, from the anxiety surrounding the city’s importance in the musical world at large to the changing vocal imaginations that permeated the epoch. Capturing the breadth of sonic stimulations and cultures available—and sometimes unavoidable—to residents at the time, London Voices, 1820–1840 sheds new light on music in Britain and the richness of London culture during this period.

"Con/Texts of Persuasion is a path-breaking multidisciplinary body of essays devoted to exploring how discourse--literary, but also political, religious, commercial and philosophical--draws on strategies from linguistics, pragmatics, argumentation theory, rhetoric and hermeneutics, not merely to communicate, but to induce recipients to think or to act differently than they might have otherwise. Persuasion is context- and culture-bound, a dialogue-friendly rhetoric in the hermeneutics of understanding (Gadamer) whose negation, manipulation, can serve the ends of propaganda ("Bend Sinister"); but it is also a vehicle for circumventing censure (burlesque) or for providing oratory with intertextual resonance ("I have a dream"). An appeal to emotions, values and subjectivity, persuasion can "immerse" the reader in a fictional world or it can result from the "phonosemantic" strategies of poetry and advertising. And the ways of persuasion can extend to the situatedness of interpretive context in critical discourse in its ideologically consonant vs. dissonant modes. An invaluable collection for anyone with an interest in the persuasive powers of textual communication."--Page 4 of cover.

The rise of the modern English nation coincided with Englands increased encounters with other peoples, both at home and abroad. Their cultures and ideasartistic, religious, political, and philosophicalcontributed, in turn, to the composition of Englands own domestic identity. Transnational England sheds light on this exchange through a close investigation of the literatures of the time, from dramas to novels, travel narratives to religious hymns, and poetry to prose, all of which reveal how connections between England and other world communities 1780-1860 simultaneously fostered and challenged the sovereignty of the English nation and the ideological boundaries that constituted it. Featuring essays from distinguished and emergent scholars that will enhance the literary, historical, and cultural knowledge of England's interaction with European, American, Eastern, and Asian nations during a time of increased travel and vast imperial expansion, this volume is valuable reading for academics and students alike.

"Drawing on filmed footage of high-wire walker Didier Pasquette, Catherine Yass's new work High Wire combines the age-old dream of walking in the air with the modernist ideal of building streets into the sky." "An extended sequence of stills of Pasquette's attempted walk in Glasgow is accompanied by essays by Steven Connor and Francis McKee which discuss High Wire within the history of tight-rope and high-wire walking and within the context of the post-war redevelopment of Glasgow." "High Wire was commissioned by Artangel and Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Visual Art 2008."--BOOK JACKET.
