A series of occasionally witty one-liners, poems and considerations on the subject of Men, Women and their Conjunction. By turns tender, bland, sexist (in both directions!) and funny.

Le Mort d’Arthur: Volume 2

Le Mort d'Arthur: Volume 2 by Sir Thomas Malory

Le Mort d'Arthur: Volume 2 by Sir Thomas Malory

Le Morte d’Arthur (spelled Le Morte Darthur in the first printing and also in some modern editions, Middle French for la mort d’Arthur, “the death of Arthur”) is Sir Thomas Malory’s compilation of some French and English Arthurian romances. The book contains some of Malory’s own original material (the Gareth story) and retells the older stories in light of Malory’s own views and interpretations. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d’Arthur is perhaps the best-known work of English-language Arthurian literature today. Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their source, including T. H. White for his popular The Once and Future King. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Orsino decides to use “Cesario” as an intermediary to tell Olivia about his love for her. Olivia, believing Viola to be a man, falls in love with this handsome and eloquent messenger. Viola, in turn, has fallen in love with the Duke, who also believes Viola is a man, and who regards her as his confidant.

Memoirs of Miss Sidney Biddulph

Memoirs of Miss Sidney Biddulph by Frances Chamberlaine Sheridan

Memoirs of Miss Sidney Biddulph by Frances Chamberlaine Sheridan

Sidney and Cecilia are best childhood friends who are forced to part for 5 years. In that interval, Sidney Bidulph – an undoubtedly good and dutiful woman – writes to her friend about everything: her marriage, her children, her other friendships and, above all, about her great love for Mr. Faulkland. In an amazing and unforgettable way, this book shows us that the road to happiness is not always clear – and that sometimes doing what seems to be right is not really the right thing to do. With Rachel’s lovely reading, we see her – Sidney Bidulph – as she was meant to be, and as she really is.

Tudor and Stuart Love Songs

Tudor and Stuart Love Songs

Tudor and Stuart Love Songs

The spirit of reform which was developed during the early part of the sixteenth century brought about a desire on the part of young men of means to travel on the continent of Europe. This was for the purpose of making themselves acquainted with the politics, social life, literature, art, science, and commerce of the various nations of the same, especially of France, Spain, and Italy. These young Englishmen on their return introduced into the society in which they mixed not only the politenesses of these countries, but the wit of Italy, and the character of the poetry which was then in vogue in Southern Europe. Among these travellers during the reign of Henry the Eighth were Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Earl of Surrey. These courtiers possessed the poetical faculty, and therefore paid special attention to literary form. As a result they introduced the Sonnet of the Petrarchan type into England. The amorous verse of the inhabitants of these sunny climes took hold of the young Englishmen. Many men of rank and education, who did not regard themselves as of the world of letters, penned pleasant verse, much of it being of an amatory character based upon that of the Italians. During the reign of “Good Queen Bess” England was full of song. Of the writers of love verses William Watson occupied a very high, probably the highest, position during the time of Elizabeth.
