Charles Dickens And The Image Of Woman

by David Holbrook, Charles Dickens And The Image Of Woman Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Charles Dickens And The Image Of Woman books, In myriad ways, humans have gradually tailored their world to meet immediate material needs. In so doing, we have, in the minds of many, systematically altered a formerly hospitable environment into one more ambiguous in its effect on the human organism. Just as environments have adapted in response to human activity, so too is the human body now, in turn, forced to adapt to these altered conditions. Today, mysterious illnesses, from chronic fatigue to Gulf War Syndrome, meet us at every turn. Yet even as an increasing number of people attribute ailments to environmental problems, the suspected relationships between illness and environment remain unclear. Illness and the Environment examines how sick people and their allies struggle to achieve public recognition of somatic complaints and disabilities that they contend are related to "manufactured environments." The first of its kind, the anthology considers the political, legal, and medical conflicts arising from these illnesses, and will prove invaluable to researchers, scholars, public policy makers, trial attorneys, and activist organizations.

Dickens Women And Language

by Patricia Ingham, Dickens Women And Language Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dickens Women And Language books, This is the first full-length study of the treatment of women in Dickens? novels to make use of modern critical approaches. It replaces traditional biographical methods with a new linguistic model which directs attention back to the texts. Patricia Ingham?s innovatory approach characterises Dickens? novelistic language by relating it to linguistic representations of women in contemporary non-fictional works (handbooks on womanly conduct, documentary works on prostitution, and Florence Nightingale?s Cassandra). This analysis reveals that Dickens? individual account of the womanly ideal is shot through with contradiction. Fallen women are both degraded and valuable, worthless and powerful; ?ideal? women are desirable and undesirable, passive and destructive of the very social structure they are supposed to sustain. The book?s conclusion is that the ambiguous struggle between convention and dissent in the language he uses for representing women charges Dickens? novels with their uneasy excitement and power.
