The Politics of Appearances

In the turbulent political and social landscape of Revolutionary France, dress played a major role in defining and displaying new identities. What people wore was, in fact, a vital symbol of their allegiances and beliefs. Drawing on a wide range of documentary and visual sources, this book offers a vivid picture of the highly charged politics of Revolutionary appearances. The author explores the dynamic complexity of the new socio-political world, where the identification of who stood for what was such an urgent, if vexed, issue: where identical items of dress could stand for opposing political ideologies, where a variety of institutions - from local societies to the national assembly - tried to define the meanings associated with clothing, and where the clothes a person wore could seal their fate. Tracing the stories surrounding the liberty cap, the different manifestations of official dress, the tricolore cockade and the sans-culotte provides a new and exciting insight into the complexities and uncertainties that made up life in Revolutionary France and the political culture that it created.

'These poems display subtle craft and pay homage to the gift of life. They're tough and honest at times (try -Free-Thinker-) and wryly self-alert to contradictions in the way we accept cruelty (-Mites-). They debunk -mystic Eastern stuff- at the same time as they celebrate its inherent value and appeal. Wrigley's care for giving others their due is evident in such poems as -Ward Orderly-, on the care and protection of fellow beings. Universally understood griefs, angers, and joys inhabit individual poems that take readers through appreciatively observed cultures and finely reported lands, to an overarching sense of gratitude for the opportunity to experience them. Tenderness and pragmatism a...

Cinematic Rome

This collection is based on the papers given at a conference at the University of Nottingham in September 2005. The conference was intended to explore Rome as a site for the making of films, and also its changing role as a setting for cinematic narrative. The resulting collection of essays will contribute to the burgeoning genre of studies on cinema and the city, by focusing on one particularly rich case study both for the nature of the films discussed, and the complexities of the city and its representation. The volume will also reach beyond film studies in so far as the subject draws on and informs other approaches to Rome's cultural history (geography, art history, urban history, classics...

The Origins of French Art Criticism

  • Categories: Art
