Wayward Women

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Wayward Women by Jane Robinson Book Summary:

For over sixteen centuries, women have been undertaking great journeys and writing about their experiences, yet the traditional image of them is still that of an intrepid Victorian lady vigorously prodding the ends of the earth with her parasol. But by their very nature, women travel writersare a non-conformist breed. The abbess Etheria's fourth-century account of a pilgrimage to the Holy Land relates not only the religious significance of her journey, but also the difficulties of mountaineering on Mount Sinai. Mary Wollstonecraft, who is celebrated as a pioneer feminist, wrote of hersecret voyage in 1795 to Scandinavia - all for the love of a cad. Isabella Bird was a meek and dutiful woman at home, but once let loose in 'the congenial barbarism of the desert', she assumed an unladylike 'up-to-anything free-legged air'; while her contemporary Mary Kingsley canoed herselfserenely through the white waters of West African rivers impeccably dressed in black silk and bonnet. Closer to our own time, some of the most glamorous women of the 1920s and 1930s were likely to feel just as comfortable in The Tatler as in the cockpit of a Gypsy Moth or stalking dinner in acentral-Asian wasteland. In fact, the only thing these women have in common is that they all wrote first-hand accounts of their journeys. Wayward Women recounts the adventures of some 400 of these travellers, together with full bibliographical details of all the books they produced between them. These writings, many of which are brought to light here for the first time in generations, form a significant and previously neglected bodyof literature, full of insight, courage, and humour.

The Meaning of Travel

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Meaning of Travel by Emily Thomas Book Summary:

How can we think more deeply about our travels? This was the question that inspired Emily Thomas' journey into the philosophy of travel. Part philosophical ramble, part travelogue, The Meaning of Travel begins in the Age of Discovery, when philosophers first started taking travel seriously. It meanders forward to consider Montaigne on otherness, John Locke on cannibals, and Henry Thoreau on wilderness. On our travels with Thomas, we discover the dark side of maps, how the philosophy of space fuelled mountain tourism, and why you should wash underwear in woodland cabins... We also confront profound issues, such as the ethics of 'doom tourism' (travel to 'doomed' glaciers and coral reefs), and the effect of space travel on human significance in a leviathan universe. The first ever exploration of the places where history and philosophy meet, this book will reshape your understanding of travel.

Translating Travel

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Translating Travel by Loredana Polezzi,Greg Walker,Martin Stannard Book Summary:

"Translating Travel examines the relationship between travel writing and translation, asking what happens when books travel beyond the narrow confines of one genre, one literary system and one culture. The volume takes as its starting point the marginal position of contemporary Italian travel writing in the Italian literary system, and proposes a comparative reading of originals and translations designed to highlight the varying reception of texts in different cultures." "Two main themes in the book are the affinity between the representations produced by travel and the practices of translation, and the complex links between travel writing and genres such as ethnography, journalism, autobiography and fiction. Individual chapters are devoted to Italian travellers' accounts of Tibet and their English translations; the hybridization of journalism and travel writing in the works of Oriana Fallaci; Italo Calvino's sublimation of travel writing in the stylized fiction of Le citta invisibili; and the complex network of literary references which marked the reception of Claudio Magris's Danubio in different cultures."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Pandora's Daughters

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pandora's Daughters by Jane Robinson Book Summary:

This enthralling history, full of anecdotes and first-hand accounts, centres on women through the ages who have sidestepped restraint and raised the eyebrows of their contemporaries by choosing to make their own, often highly idiosyncratic, way of life. The pedigree of the modern career woman is not generally supposed to be long, reaching back only as far as those late-Victorian pioneers who stormed the bastions of male professions. Jane Robinson looks back over some 25 centuries and proves that theory quite wrong. The 100 or so women portrayed here were busy behind the scenes of recorded history, in the cause of earning an honest (or perhaps not) independent living. Their enterprise and flair led them to careers as diverse as they are improbable, ranging from engineers, plumbers and surgeons, to a naval commander in the Persian Wars, a Dark-Age Pope, a successful Orcadian wind-seller, some pirates, a Royal Marine and a stockbroker who ran for President of the United States. The author considers such achievements against their place and time and the result is a tribute to an inspirational body of women whose significance has too long been ignored, as well as a wonderfully entertaining read.

The Sporting Life

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Sporting Life by Nancy Fix Anderson Book Summary:

This lively and intriguing study looks at the way sports both reflected and shaped Victorian society. Just as our own games have a lot to say about modern American culture, so sports are a prism through which we can gain valuable insights into Victorian society. The Sporting Life: Victorian Sports and Games is an engaging and perceptive account of how sport developed during Britain's heyday, who played (and who wasn't allowed to play), and what it all conveys about gender, race, imperialism, and national pride. Drawing extensively on 19th-century writings, The Sporting Life begins with a survey of sports in pre-Victorian England and the impact of industrialism in the early 19th century. We read of the effects of evangelicalism and utilitarianism, both of which first opposed sport, then used it for their own purposes. We learn of the association of sports with masculinity, an identification women challenged late in the century. Finally we learn how English sports became part of the imperial game, used to promote--and resist--the spread of Victoria's vast empire. * Excerpts from 19th-century English writings on sports allow the Victorians speak in their own words about the meaning of sports in their lives * Illuminating and entertaining illustrations of many aspects of Victorian sports include humorous spoofs on sports from Punch magazine * A glossary explains the sometimes arcane terms used in Victorian sports

Women Who Become Men

Unsuitable For Ladies An Anthology Of Women Travellers [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Women Who Become Men by Antonia Young Book Summary:

Most people conceive of gender as a culturally informed response to a biological imperative. But such rigid notions are overturned by certain women in remote regions of Albania who elect to 'become' men simply for the advantages that accrue to them as a result. They crop their hair, wear men's clothes, roll their own cigarettes, drink brandy and carry guns. In short, their lives are much freer and less regimented than other members of their sex - but at a cost. These women must foreswear sexual relationships, marriage and children. They have been dubbed 'Sworn Virgins'.What is interesting is that in this region of the Balkans, simply to dress as a man and to behave as a man will earn these women the same respect accorded a man. This is no mean advantage in an area known for sexual inequality and where so many men have suffered violent, premature deaths, thereby heightening the need for more household heads. Traditionally as heads of household, men are revered and the women who attend them utterly subservient. But unlike 'normal' women, Sworn Virgins can inherit and manage property, and, in fact, may even be raised to assume the male role by parents who have no male heirs. Based on extensive interviews, this book tells the frank and engrossing stories of these women, but also sets their lives within the wider context of a country undergoing radical upheaval and social transformation.
