Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Interpreting / Translating, grade: 1,7, University of Heidelberg (Institut fur Ubersetzen und Dolmetschen Heidelberg), course: Britain Today: Social and Cultural Dimensions, 11 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Despite the fact that the influence of TV and radio rose in recent years the press is still one of the most important media for information.

The difference between the quality and popular newspapers is basically obvious in style and conte nts. I will focus on the national, daily Populars in the following.

Astrology and the Popular Press

Apart from the Bible, almanacs were the most influential and widely dispersed for of literature in Tudor and Stuart England. At their zenith in the later seventeenth century, they sold at a rate of 400,000 copies a year. They were read by many people who read little else, and the works of Shakespeare and Jonson, among others, have numerous references to them. Professor Capp's fascinating book (Faber, 1979) is the first to study their history in depth. It is full of vivid detail, and shows clearly how relevant they were to almost every aspect of life, social, intellectual, religious, political. As well as being a powerful force in revolutionary times, they played a central part in spreading s...
