This book offers one of the best explanations of Victorian psychology I ve come across with its details on what delicacy in women entailed, why it was so desirable and how it became the norm.It also gives a good impression of bowdlerisation of the literature in the nineteenth century, giving a feel for the wider trends by focussing on certain works For example, there is a chapter devoted to Shakespeare and the various ways in which increasingly zealous censors winnowed down the plays until the original Dr Bowdler s edition was seen to be dangerously permissive And I especially enjoyed a few pages devoted to a line from the Canterbury Tales, A shiten shepherde and a clene sheep, and the vast number of ways the censors changed it. Surprisingly, well informed and scholarly for a book not by a UP A good overall history of the practice of Bowdlerizing books, not just why but often how as well. Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America Paperback by Noel Perrin I naively thought thought that some works, namely the Bible and Shakespeare, were carved in stone The lesson of this fine book is that no writer is safe from tampering. *Download Book ⇙ Dr. Bowdler's Legacy: A History of Expurgated Books in England and America ☝ DrBowdler s Legacy A History of ExpurgatedNotRetrouvez DrBowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America et des millions de livres en stock surAchetez neuf ou d occasionDr Bowdler s Legacy A History of ExpurgatedNotRetrouvez Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America et des millions de livres en stock surAchetez neuf ou d occasionDr Bowdler s Legacy A History of ExpurgatedNotRetrouvez Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America et des millions de livres en stock surAchetez neuf ou d occasionDr Bowdlers Legacy Livres NotRetrouvez Dr Bowdlers Legacy et des millions de livres en stock surAchetez neuf ou d occasionDr Bowdler s Legacy A History of ExpurgatedNotRetrouvez Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America by Noel Perrinet des millions de livres en stock surAchetez neuf ou d occasion Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated The Dr Bowdler of the title refers to the guiding light of a printed version of Shakespeare that was popular in the US in the th century Bowdler and family produced this edited version for family consumption, since raw Shakespeare was deemed too raw for Noel Perrin Dr Bowdler s Legacy, MacMillan Noel Perrin Dr Bowdler s Legacy, MacMillan First UK Edition A History of expurgated books in England and America Original blue cloth with dust jacket like new Cream leaves Text firm and clean Bumps to top and bottom edges of dust jacket Scratch to back cover Weight g PagesNoel PERRIN Dr Bowdler s Legacy History of Title Dr Bowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America Publication New York Atheneum,Description Hardcover First edition Foredge foxed, a small stain on the front board, a very good copy in very good dustwrapper with light edgewear Very warmly Inscribed by the author to New Yorker editor Rachel MacKenzie MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the DrBowdler s Legacy A History of Scopri DrBowdler s Legacy A History of Expurgated Books in England and America di Noel Perrin spedizione gratuita per i clienti Prime e per ordini a partire daspediti daDr Christopher s Herbal Legacy Herbal Legacy was created as a way for people to find outinformation about the formulas created by Dr John R Christopher, and how they were originally intended for use One of Dr Christopher s goals was to have an Herbalist in every home, and a Master Herbalist in every community
