5.0 out of 5 stars Win Win App, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UK NewsPapers (App)
Extremely useful survey of UK newspapers enabling both a headline survey and in-depth reading of articles with instant capacity to compare and contrast. Goiod for the papers too because it permits acquaintance with non-headline profile and encourages purchase of single editions or following given columnists one would otherwise never glance at..

This review is from: Thornit Ear Powder, 20 g (Misc.)
It seems to help with mite infection should your dog be allergic to spot-on solutions.
Some dogs don't like the iodine like odour but if rubbed into the inside TIP of ear it controls infection

5.0 out of 5 stars Frieda Lawrence - a revelation, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very informative book people who read Lawrence should know about.
Aspects of it might be reviwed in the new Cambridge edition everyone knows but this book is written by a woman
who can revive asopects of what it felt like to live like Frieda.
I think it's a must for thebookshelf if you care about D. H. Lawrence.


Absurda comica oder Herr Peter Squentz.
Absurda comica oder Herr Peter Squentz.
by Andreas Gryphius
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars German vision of Shakespeare?, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Currently trying to translate this into English so it is a working copy for me.
Perhaps Gryphius had heard the Shakespeare players performing in Holland,
perhaps in Leyden itself. At any rate it is a vigorous piece of work, stands on its own feet, but has the native strengths in it you might associate with Grimmelshausen, or , in English, the very different Bunyan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable set of essays, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This well-known book, as it happens a first editiion, is invaluable for people who read and enjoy D. H. Laswrence's essays.
Nowadays of course we have the immense and scholarly higly praised Cambridge editions to turn to.
But this book is still very useful for people outside the ivory towers who want to read texts rather than annotations..

4.0 out of 5 stars A vigrorouis and fast auto biography, full of life,by an Intrepid 19thC woman artist and traveller., 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
North gave up her house and garden in Hastings in Sussex to travel the world and paint its beauty. She also spread that beauty by collecting seeds for Kew at her own expense(she was a rich woman) . In the process she trudged through swamps, crossed deserts, mastered disease,mixed in with the poor, knew Darwin, dined with US President Grant. That vigour and joie de vivre comes through in the book. Her sister may have edited out aspects of her private life, she eschewed marriage rather than men it seems.
There's a lot of "soul" in the book.
