Описание

Jane Austen began writing in her early teens, filling three notebooks with her fiction. The characters of these stories have a jaunty, never-failing self-devotion. They perpetually lie, cheat, steal - and occasionally murder. In these short or unfinished pieces, Austen exhibits her sense of the preposterous in life and fiction with tough-mindedness and robust humour, and without inhibition. In addition to prose fiction and prayers, this collection contains many of Austen's poems, written to amuse or console friends, and rarely reprinted. Texts are based on manuscripts, including the three notebooks, affording a distinct edition with a number of new readings. This edition includes: introduction; textual note; bibliography chronology; explanatory notes. Edited by Margaret Anne Doody and Douglas Murray with an introduction by Margaret Anne Doody.

Jane Austen — Catharine and Other Writings, 2009 год

Автор статьи: admin / 1 просмотров

Oxford University Press / —

Jane Austen began writing in her early teens, and filled three notebooks with her fiction. Her earliest work reflects her interest in the novel as a genre; in brilliant short pieces she plays with plots, stock characters, diction, and style, developing a sense of form at a remarkably early age. The characters of these stories have a jaunty and never-failing devotion to themselves. They perpetually lie, cheat, steal — and occasionally commit murder. Throughout these short or unfinished pieces, Austen exhibits her sense of the preposterous in life and fiction with tough-mindedness and robust humour. Alice, the mock-heroine of Jack and Alice has ‘many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them’. In her later published fiction, Austen had learned to take demands for propriety seriously, reining in whatever might be thought boisterous or coarse. Here we see Jane Austen without her inhibitions. In addition to prose fiction and prayers, this collection also contains many of Jane Austen’s poems, written to amuse or console friends, and rarely reprinted. The texts have been compared with the manuscripts and edited to give a number of new readings.The notes recreate the texture of daily life in Jane Austen’s age, and demonstrate her knowledge of the fiction of her time. The introduction by Margaret Anne Doody sets the writings within the context of Jane Austen’s life and literary career.

Catherine II the Great - Екатерина II (топик)

Catherine II 'the Great' - Екатерина II (топик)

Catherine II 'the Great', Empress of Russia (1729-1796), is referred to as an 'enlightened monarch'. She shaped the Russian destiny to a greater extent than almost anyone before or since, with the exception of Peter the Great.

A German Princess, born Sophie Augusta Fredericka, she married Peter III of Russia and changed her name to 'Catherine' when she accepted the Russian Orthodox faith. The marriage was unsuccessful due to Peter Ill's mental immaturity. Soon Catherine became popular with several powerful political groups. She corresponded with many of the great minds of her era, including Voltaire and Diderot. Peter's eccentricities and policies alienated many. He was made to abdicate and was killed by Alexei Orlov in 1762. Catherine became the Empress of Russia.

In 1785 Catherine issued a charter that freed the nobles from state service and taxes, made noble status hereditary, and gave the nobles full control over their serfs and lands. Catherine proceeded to 'westernize' Russia. After a peasant revolt in 1773 led by Yemelyan Pugachev, Catherine instituted several drastic reforms. First, she encouraged the modernization of agriculture and industry. Second, she supported foreign investment in economically underdeveloped areas. Third, Catherine encouraged education for the nobles and middle class. She gave equal rights to Muslims in Russia, including the right to build mosques.

Catherine made Russia the dominant power in the Middle East after her first Russo-Turkish War against the Ottoman Empire (1768— 1774). She annexed the Crimea in 1783. All told, she added some 518,000 square km to Russian territory. She also encouraged the colonization of Alaska and of conquered areas.

Catherine subscribed to the Enlightenment and considered herself a 'philosopher on the throne.' She became known as a patron of the arts, literature and education. The Hermitage Museum was begun as Catherine's personal collection. She founded the famous Smolny Institute for noble young ladies. Gavrila Derzhavin and other writers of her epoch, supported by Catherine, laid the foundation for the great writers of the nineteenth century. However, her reign was also marked by censorship. When Radishchev published his Journey from St. Petersburg to Moscow in 1790, Catherine had him exiled to Siberia. Catherine died on November 5, 1796, and was buried at the St. Peter and St. Paul Fortress in Saint Petersburg.
