♥ Book Title : Scarecrows of Chivalry
☯ Full Synopsis : "Exploring the fate of the ideal of the English gentleman once the empire he was meant to embody declined, Praseeda Gopinath argues that the stylization of English masculinity became the central theme, focus, and conceit for many literary texts that represented the "condition of Britain" in the 1930s and the immediate postwar era. From the early writings of George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh to works by poets and novelists such as Philip Larkin, Ian Fleming, Barbara Pym, and A. S. Byatt, the author shows how Englishmen trafficking in the images of self-restraint, governance, decency, and detachment in the absence of a structuring imperial ethos became what the poet Larkin called "scarecrows of chivalry." Gopinath's study of this masculine ideal under duress reveals the ways in which issues of race, class, and sexuality constructed a gendered narrative of the nation."Article| Praseeda Gopinath| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : SCARECROWS
☯ Full Synopsis : "During his lifetime William (Bill) Hutchinson always had a fascination for Scarecrows! He lived in Scarborough, North Yorkshire (above) for many years and took up writing poetry at least 60 years ago. Sadly, he died in 2015. Whilst he wrote about many topics and his widow Margaret still has over 1000 of the poems he wrote, a good number of them feature Scarecrows. The poems in this book are a very small selection and the book has been published, in his memory, by Margaret who still lives in Scarborough. Bill was born in 1927 in a small mining village a few miles from Doncaster and he and Margaret married and moved to Scarborough in 1955. During his working years he had various occupations but during his free time he got out his notepad and pencil and penned new poems - a selection of his Scarecrow poems are published in this book."Article| William A Hutchinson| Statement ..."
☯ Full Synopsis : "The importance of chivalry is taught to little girls and boys from the start, outlining for them the various rules of male obligation that will guide sexual relations throughout their lifetimes; i.e., males are here to protect and provide for women. The victories of legendary cinematic heroes whose brave deeds are rounded with applause and happily-ever-afters appears to seal the fate of chivalry as the future path of every man. Those few who do pause to question chivalry's values however - its rote expectation of male sacrifice, possibility of danger or injury, impacts on mental health, potential for exploitation and abuse, or the question of valid compensations for ongoing sacrifices - may conclude that it serves as a poor life map, or worse that it amounts to a malignant and toxic form of masculinity. This book examines the realities of chivalry beyond the usual platitudes to see what's really at stake for men. The essays, written by men's advocates Peter Wright and Paul Elam, survey the roots of the chivalric tradition and examine real life examples of chivalry in action."Article| Peter Wright| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Bloody Constraint : War and Chivalry in Shakespeare
☯ Full Synopsis : "War is a major theme in Shakespeare's plays. Aside from its dramatic appeal, it provided him with a context in which his characters, steeped in the ideals of chivalry, could discuss such concepts as honor, courage, patriotism, and justice. Well aware of the decline of chivalry in his own era, Shakespeare gave his characters lines calling for civilized behavior, mercy, humanitarian principles, and moral responsibility. In this remarkable new book, eminent legal scholar Theodor Meron looks at contemporary international humanitarian law and rules for the conduct of war through the lens of Shakespeare's plays and discerns chivalry's influence there. The book comes as a response to the question of whether the world has lost anything by having a system of law based on the Hague and Geneva conventions. Meron contends that, despite the foolishness and vanity of its most extreme manifestations, chivalry served as a customary law that restrained and humanized the conflicts of the generally chaotic and brutal Middle Ages. It had the advantage of resting on the sense that rules arise naturally out of societies, their armed forces, and their rulers on the basis of experience. Against a background of Medieval and Renaissance sources as well as Shakespeare's historical and dramatic settings, Meron considers the ways in which law, morality, conscience, and state necessity are deployed in Shakespeare's plays to promote a society in which soldiers behave humanely and leaders are held to high standards of civilized behavior. Thus he illustrates the literary genealogy of such modern international humanitarian concerns as the treatment of prisoners and of noncombatants and accountability for war crimes, showing that the chivalric legacy has not been lost entirely. Fresh and insightful, Bloody Constraint will interest scholars of international law, lovers of Shakespeare, and anyone interested in the history of war."Article| Theodor Meron Charles L.
