"Drawing on a history of both literary and visual representations of Fortune, Elizabeth Campbell argues that Dickens's contribution to both the iconographic and narrative traditions was to fuse the classical image of the wheel with the industrial one. Campbell's close reading of Dickens reveals that, as the wheel was increasingly identified as the official Victorian symbol for British industrial and economic progress, he reacted by employing this icon to represent a more pessimistic historical vision - as the tragic symbol for human fate in the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.

Paul Huson’s Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot illustrates for the first time the earliest, traditional tarot card interpretations collected by Jean-Baptiste Alliette, aka Etteilla, a Parisian fortune-teller. Unlike other modern decks, the images are unadorned by the occult speculations of Mathers, Waite, or Crowley. This book is a pictorial companion to the deck. In addition to detailed descriptions of the cards’ symbolism and significance—with both upright and reversed meanings—Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot provides meticulous full-color reproductions of Huson’s original designs for all 79 cards, including an extra Significator card specified by Etteilla that may be used optionally, and full instructions for how to lay out the cards for divination.

There are some who say that the Lady Fortune has a wheel, and all men are fixed upon it. The wheel turns, and the men rise, or fall, with the turning of the wheel. Birle has agreed to be wed to the huntsman Muir as an escape from the drudgery of life at her father's inn -- but the moment she looks into the bellflower blue eyes of the man she comes upon stealing one of her father's boats, Birle knows she cannot marry Muir. Even after she discovers the mysterious stranger is Orien, a Lord and as unreachable to an innkeeper's daughter as a star, Birle is determined to travel with him as far as he will allow. Their travels take Birle to a world far from home, a world where Lords may become slaves, where Princes rule by fear, and where Fortune's Wheel turns more swiftly and dangerously than Birle could have imagined. Newberry Medalist Cynthia Voigt's second novel of the Kingdom, set two generations later than Jackaroo, is a memorable combination of thrilling adventure and heart-stopping romance.
