Catechisms and Women's Writing in Seventeenth-Century England is a study of early modern women's literary use of catechizing. Paula McQuade examines original works composed by women - both in manuscript and print, as well as women's copying and redacting of catechisms - and construction of these materials from other sources. By studying female catechists, McQuade shows how early modern women used the power and authority granted to them as mothers to teach religious doctrine, to demonstrate their linguistic skills, to engage sympathetically with Catholic devotional texts, and to comment on matters of contemporary religious and political import - activities that many scholars have considered the sole prerogative of clergymen. This book addresses the question of women's literary production in early modern England, demonstrating that reading and writing of catechisms were crucial sites of women's literary engagements during this time.
This study challenges critical assumptions about the role of religion in shaping women's experiences of authorship. The seventeenth-century Protestant women discussed in this book range across the religio-political and social spectrums yet all display an affinity with modern feminist theologians. Rather than being victims of a patriarchal gender ideology, these women were active participants in wider theological debates.

This is the first history of the guitar during the reign of the Stuarts, a time of great political and social upheaval in England. In this engaging and original volume, Christopher Page gathers a rich array of portraits, literary works and other, previously unpublished, archival materials in order to create a comprehensive picture of the guitar from its early appearances in Jacobean records, through its heyday at the Restoration court in Whitehall, to its decline in the first decades of the eighteenth century. The book explores the passion of Charles II himself for the guitar, and that of Samuel Pepys, who commissioned the largest repertoire of guitar-accompanied song to survive from baroque Europe. Written in Page's characteristically approachable style, this volume will appeal to general readers as well as to music historians and guitar specialists.

This volume explores the relationship between writing and public concerns in seventeenth-century England before, during, and after the civil wars and revolution of the mid-century. The distinguished list of contributors represent a variety of disciplines and methodologies. They share, however, an intense concern with the relationship between the act of writing and the political and public issues of this extraordinary period. The essays suggest that significant art, even when apparently 'private', was deeply engaged with public issues, while political writing was intimately involved with questions of style and inward conscience.
To tackle a bundle of resources for writing a research paper is not an easy task for an experienced instructor. Even worse, it is a confusing one for a student who is asked for the first time to write a research paper after studying several courses of essay writing. Writing a research paper needs not to be a frightening task. A research paper may be longer than most of all college essays, but a student will be given more time to complete it. Having a plan for work will make the process go smoothly. Over the years, I have arrived at a time-saving, ten-step, simple strategy for this. The first five steps prepare the student to write and the remaining steps helps in writing the documented paper.This book goes through these steps giving some examples from online resources.
The act of travelling and the urge to report about travels has always been popular among humans. However, with the rise of Imperialism in England the genre of travel writing became incredibly popular. It is a genre that is more than any other genre, open to influence. Especially travel writing of the 19th century on the African continent was highly influenced by external aspects. Such aspects were varied and included historically developed ones as well as social, political and personal. It is through the different influences that travel writing of that time was granted such great importance within imperial England. Still, such influences also gave rise to criticism and travel writing offered a fairly safe ground for that. The works of Joseph Conrad and Mary Kingsley are good examples of what was widely read in 19th century England. These two works fit neatly into the conception of travel writing and therefore offer great space for the analysis of the various influences on travel writing.

The first of its kind, this book is distinctive in approach and content, in bringing together two interests, forced and arranged marriage, and the employment of criminalisation as a strategy to combat these marital practices in England and Wales. The author conducts a literature review, interviews and questionnaires with South Asian women and law enforcement agents in England and Wales. This book explores the changing cultural significance of marriage amongst the South Asian community in England and Wales, whilst asking whether there is a clear distinction between forced and arranged marriage. The author critically examines the legal remedies available to protect victims: the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007, decree of nullity, and current immigration polices employed in both England and Wales and Denmark. This book explores what criminalisation of forced and/or arranged marriage will achieve in England and Wales by assessing the impact of criminalisation in Norway and Denmark. This carefully researched book is a resource in addressing forced and arranged marriage and more broadly, violence against women, and will be of interest to a multi-disciplinary audience.

This paper has attempted to draw some attention upon the problem of modern techniques in the evaluation of writing skills.The reason I have chosen to tackle this aspect is the fact that lately there has been real emphasis on this functional and communicative side of learning foreign languages in order to help Romanian students cope with any situation in which speaking and writing in a foreign language is required: the chance to sit for some important exams, working abroad and why not when using the Internet. The purpose of this paper is not that of scanning the most efficient evaluation methods, but that of aiming to be a useful and practical guide in adjusting the different modern evaluation methods and techniques to our students’ motivation and needs.
