Literatures of Exile in the English Revolution and its Aftermath, 1640-1690 (Transculturalisms, 1400 -1700)
by a foreword by Lisa Jardine
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £95.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of a breakthrough in 17thC scholarship, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent piece of research and commentary that opens up further linbes of study in the remarkably fecund but inadequately explored world of interaction in Holland during the Thirty Years War between English, French, Dutch, German , Italian literary artists where English printers were busy producing all manner of publications and poems were circulating in manuscript that were only printed long after. Along with work by Daniel Starzy Smith (Oxford) and the editions of the Queen of Bohemia's letters which are coming out, it is part of a new start for research and criricism - re-assessment - of this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diplomacy taken lightly, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eating for Britain (Paperback)
A light-hearted and humorous look at aspects of diplomatic life in Germany and in the Alsace from a British point of view, gently ironic,and entertaining evading deep analysis but demonstrating the whimsy that makes deeper analysis tolerable..

5.0 out of 5 stars Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia: A striking example of a 17th C. European woman endowed with discerning intelligence., 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book arrived in fair time and in good condition -unlike the correspondence of Queen Elizabeth (Stuart) of Bohemia, which still hasn't arrived after weeks and weeks.
The book itself is well worth reading. The dialogue enhances understanding of Descartes and Princess Elisabeth's own thinking is a delight in itself. Very useful for thinking about 17th C . A remarkable exchange between two thinkers.

5.0 out of 5 stars top performance product, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful indeed - does what it says-the blurb is true, which is rare.
Truly light weight,a featherweight among vacuums.
Because it is corded it is powerful , it removes pet haitr, it removes earth spill from pots.
I don't know how durable the produxct is - but so far it is excellent for
stairs, nooks and crannies and carpets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete Mitford, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lost voice really. Her family partly notorious because of Nazi leanings but these novels satirise that and anyway give a glimpse of an aristocracy which is now hidden but still extant. Again a present. There is a lot of lost love in the novels but anyone looking at the period could read therm with profit. A great contrast to the slightly better stories of the Austrian Torberg.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catxching up with past idioms, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good fun on class speak. Bought this is a present.Albeit tongue in cheek, I think useful for advanced ESOL learners and academics outside the Uk pursuing the origins of English class speak. Entertaining and useful.

This review is from: DER SPIEGEL (App)
Very useful indeed. Direct access to current editions with access to Spiegel books and archive material. Excellent i think for students and academics who want to keep in touch with outstanding and influential German journalistic analyses.

Not as wide-ranging as i had hoped but certainly grants access to Focus. I find it fairly useful but not oyutstanding.


Seneca's Tragedies. With an English translation by Frank Justus Miller Vol. 1
Seneca's Tragedies. With an English translation by Frank Justus Miller Vol. 1
Price: £0.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Seneca chopped up, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful if you need to review Seneca but the Latin English versions are not well synchronised as they are, for example, in the Reclam series. The translatiion is serviceable but not excellent.
