An examination of a number of English women novelists who portrayed the crises and conflicts in the development of the female consciousness as a response to the anomalies of the rapidly changing world of the early twentieth century when opportunities for self-expression and fulfilment were beginning to open up for women but nineteenth-century values and prejudices still widely prevailed. May Sinclair, Radclyffe Hall, Rosamond Lehmann, Antonia White and Dorothy Richardson are seen as outspoken and innovative writers often marginalised or ignored by serious criticism.

When Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning is invited by Doreen Briggs, one of Charleston’s most prominent hostesses, to a “Rat Tea,” she is understandably intrigued. As servers dressed in rodent costumes and wearing white gloves offer elegant finger sandwiches and fine teas, Theo learns these parties date back to early twentieth-century Charleston, where the cream of society would sponsor so-called rat teas to promote city rodent control and better public health. But this party goes from odd to chaotic when a fire starts at one of the tables and Doreen’s entrepreneur husband suddenly goes into convulsions and drops dead. Has his favorite orange pekoe tea been poisoned? Theo smells a rat. The distraught Doreen soon engages Theo to pursue a discreet inquiry into who might have murdered her husband.

Spectacles designed to capture our attention surround us. Marketing, movies, shopping malls, concerts, and virtual realities capture our imaginations and cultivate our desires. We live in a "society of the spectacle." However, is the power and prevalence of spectacle unique to the modern era? In the pages of Gifts Glittering and Poisoned, early Christian voices echo across the centuries to show that the society of the spectacle is not new. Our era resembles a time when the spectacular entertainments of ancient Rome had a profound effect on every aspect of social life. By drawing on the rich theology and witness of early Christianity, Gifts Glittering and Poisoned asks what it means for us to live in a new era of empire and spectacle. Through Augustine's description of the demonic, it shows how consumerism constructs a sophisticated symbolic order, a "society of the spectacle," that corrupts our deepest longings for God.

The portal snapped shut, and I felt misty rain dance on my shoulders.

"Following on the successes of two previous dictionary projects, the CRC World Dictionary of Plant Names and the CRC World Dictionary of the Grasses, Umberto Quattrocchi has undertaken this dictionary of economically important plants.... He has done for these plants what was so admirably done in his other works—brought the vast and scattered literature on plant names, and in this case, too, their uses, into coherent order so that the inquisitive scholar can get a foothold." —From the Foreword, Donald H. Pfister, Harvard University and Harvard University Herbaria, Cambridge, Massachusetts The CRC World Dictionary of Medicinal and Poisonous Plants: Common Names, Scientific Names, Eponyms, Synonyms, and Etymology provides the starting point for better access to data on plants used around the world in medicine, food, and cultural practices. The material found in the five volumes has been painstakingly gathered from papers of general interest, reports and records, taxonomic revisions, field studies, herbaria and herbarium collections, notes, monographs, pamphlets, botanical literature, and literature tout court. It includes sources available at various natural history libraries, floras and standard flora works, local floras and local histories, nomenclatural histories, and the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. Much more than a dictionary, the book provides the names of thousands of genera and species of economically important plants, concise summaries of plant properties, and appropriate observations about medicinal uses. Drawing from a tremendous range of primary and secondary sources, it is an indispensable time-saving guide for all those involved with botany, herbal medicine, pharmacognosy, toxicology, medicinal and natural product chemistry, and agriculture.

The Waner brothers, Paul and Lloyd - also known as "Big Poison" and "Little Poison" - played together for fourteen seasons in the same Pittsburgh outfield in the 1920s and 1930s. They still rank as the best-hitting brothers in major league history with a combined 5,611 hits, and both Waners are in the Hall of Fame, the only playing brothers so honored. This dual biography tells the story of the Waner brothers from their lives in Oklahoma through their long playing careers and later years. It is also the story of two American eras: the Roaring Twenties and the Depression years. Paul amassed 3,152 hits, and his .333 lifetime average ranks among the highest ever in the game. Lloyd, a lifetime .316 hitter, collected 2,459 hits, and had it not been for health problems, he might have cleared the 3,000 hit milestone as well. Together, they were baseball heroes.

It is July 1890 as thirty-seven-year old Vincent van Gogh prepares for his last destination. Soon he plans to leave his tormented earthly life and move forward to a more peaceful place. After Vincent dons his usual paint-splattered clothes and leaves several still-wet canvases behind in his cluttered room, he lovingly places his paint box and easel next to a garden wall, where he hopes someone will find them one day. As he revisits sites he has pained, Vincent touches the metal barrel of the borrowed pistol he has tucked secretly into his jacket while reflecting on his episodes of madness, his embarrassing seizures, and his less than ideal relationship with his brother, Theo. Finally while the malnourished and selfcondemned artist climbs a steep road above the rural lands of France to carry out his scheduled plan before nightfall, his destiny waits. Will Vincent have the courage to carry out his final act, and if so, what will be its consequences? In this poignant tale, the imagined last thirty-six hours of the renowned artist play out in fascinating detail as he finally takes control of his tortured existence on Earth.

Poisonous Muse

The nineteenth century was, we have been told, the “century of the poisoner,” when Britain and the United States trembled under an onslaught of unruly women who poisoned husbands with gleeful abandon. That story, however, is only half true. While British authorities did indeed round up and execute a number of impoverished women with minimal evidence and fomented media hysteria, American juries refused to convict suspected women and newspapers laughed at men who feared them. This difference in outcome doesn’t mean that poisonous women didn’t preoccupy Americans. In the decades following Andrew Jackson’s first presidential bid, Americans buzzed over women who used poison to kill men. They produced and devoured reams of ephemeral newsprint, cheap trial transcripts, and sensational “true” pamphlets, as well as novels, plays, and poems. Female poisoners served as crucial elements in the literary manifestos of writers from Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe to George Lippard and the cheap pamphleteer E. E. Barclay, but these characters were given a strangely positive spin, appearing as innocent victims, avenging heroes, or engaging humbugs. The reason for this poison predilection lies in the political logic of metaphor. Nineteenth-century Britain strove to rein in democratic and populist movements by labeling popular print “poison” and its providers “poisoners,” drawing on centuries of established metaphor that negatively associated poison, women, and popular speech or writing. Jacksonian America, by contrast, was ideologically committed to the popular—although what and who counted as such was up for serious debate. The literary gadfly John Neal called on his fellow Jacksonian writers to defy British critical standards, saying, “Let us have poison.” Poisonous Muse investigates how they answered, how they deployed the figure of the female poisoner to theorize popular authorship, to validate or undermine it, and to fight over its limits, particularly its political, gendered, and racial boundaries. Poisonous Muse tracks the progress of this debate from approximately 1820 to 1845. Uncovering forgotten writers and restoring forgotten context to well-remembered authors, it seeks to understand Jacksonian print culture from the inside out, through its own poisonous language.

Ginny was awakened by the sound of a motorcycle coming through the apple orchard. "Where am I going to hide? Maybe they are coming back to see if I''m dead!" She crawled around to the back of the tree pressing her body tightly against it. She held her breath; she must not make a sound. Her heart was beating so hard she was sure whoever was there would hear it. "Oh God, please help me now" she prayed. The motorcycle passed close by the tree, turned and made a circle around the house. "Oh no, they are coming back," she held her breath once again and tried to listen for some sound. "It stopped, it stopped.!" Ginny felt she would pass out, her head was spinning. "What if they saw me?" She clung to the tree, digging her long fingernails into its bark. "Hey Missy, whatcha doing hanging onto that tree? Don''t move an inch," said the old man while holding his shotgun just a few feet away from her hiding place.One loud blast from his gun almost deafened Ginny. Screaming as loud as she could and shaking all over, she realized she had not been the target.

The Poison King

ISBN: 9781400833429

Machiavelli praised his military genius. European royalty sought out his secret elixir against poison. His life inspired Mozart's first opera, while for centuries poets and playwrights recited bloody, romantic tales of his victories, defeats, intrigues, concubines, and mysterious death. But until now no modern historian has recounted the full story of Mithradates, the ruthless king and visionary rebel who challenged the power of Rome in the first century BC. In this richly illustrated book--the first biography of Mithradates in fifty years--Adrienne Mayor combines a storyteller's gifts with the most recent archaeological and scientific discoveries to tell the tale of Mithradates as it has never been told before. The Poison King describes a life brimming with spectacle and excitement. Claiming Alexander the Great and Darius of Persia as ancestors, Mithradates inherited a wealthy Black Sea kingdom at age fourteen after his mother poisoned his father. He fled into exile and returned in triumph to become a ruler of superb intelligence and fierce ambition. Hailed as a savior by his followers and feared as a second Hannibal by his enemies, he envisioned a grand Eastern empire to rival Rome. After massacring eighty thousand Roman citizens in 88 BC, he seized Greece and modern-day Turkey. Fighting some of the most spectacular battles in ancient history, he dragged Rome into a long round of wars and threatened to invade Italy itself. His uncanny ability to elude capture and surge back after devastating losses unnerved the Romans, while his mastery of poisons allowed him to foil assassination attempts and eliminate rivals. The Poison King is a gripping account of one of Rome's most relentless but least understood foes. Some images inside the book are unavailable due to digital copyright restrictions.
