Gender Speech and Audience Reception in Early Modern England

This book makes a significant contribution to recent scholarship on the ways in which women responded to the regulation of their behavior by focusing on representations of women speakers and their audiences in moments Smith identifies as "scenes of speech." This new approach, examining speech exchanges between a speaker and audience in which both anticipate, interact with, and respond to each other and each other's expectations, demonstrates that the prescriptive process involves a dynamic exchange in which each side plays a role in establishing and contesting the boundaries of acceptable speech for women. Drawing from a wide range of evidence, including pamphlets, diaries, illustrations, and plays, the book interprets the various and at times contradictory representations and reception of women’s speech that circulated in early modern England. Speech scenes examined within include wives' speech to their husbands in private, private speech between women, public speech before death, and the speech of witches. Looking at scenes of women’s speech from male and female authors, Smith argues that these early modern texts illustrate a means through which societal regulations were negotiated and modified. This book will appeal to those with an interest in early modern drama, including the playwrights Shakespeare, Cary, Webster, Fletcher, and Middleton, as well as readers of non-dramatic early modern literary texts. The volume is of particular use for scholars working in the areas of early modern literature and culture, women’s history, gender studies, and performance studies.

Beyond the Witch Trials

Beyond the witch trials provides an important collection of essays on the nature of witchcraft and magic in European society during the Enlightenment. The book is innovative not only because it pushes forward the study of witchcraft into the eighteenth century, but because it provides the reader with a challenging variety of different approaches and sources of information. The essays, which cover England, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, Scotland, Finland and Sweden, examine the experience of and attitudes towards witchcraft from both above and below. While they demonstrate the continued widespread fear of witches amongst the masses, they also provide a corrective to the notion that intellectual society lost interest in the question of witchcraft. While witchcraft prosecutions were comparatively rare by the mid-eighteenth century, the intellectual debate did no disappear; it either became more private or refocused on such issues as possession. The contributors come from different academic disciplines, and by borrowing from literary theory, archaeology and folklore they move beyond the usual historical perspectives and sources. They emphasise the importance of studying such themes as the aftermath of witch trials, the continued role of cunning-folk in society, and the nature of the witchcraft discourse in different social contexts. This book will be essential reading for those interested in the decline of the European witch trials and the continued importance of witchcraft and magic during the Enlightenment. More generally it will appeal to those with a lively interest in the cultural history of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This is the first of a two-volume set of books looking at the phenomenon of witchcraft, magic and the occult in Europe since the seventeenth century.

She knows that she must rid herself of these new found feelings towards Ethan before he finds out the truth about her—that she is a witch—and looks at her with disdain. Can there be any hope that Ethan and Ava will be able to save each other, and make a new, happier life together? To Woo a Witch Connor continues to turn up at Kaelyn’s cabin, determined to get her attention, but Kaelyn is not impressed by his attentions and keeps him at arm’s length. That is, until a violent storm takes place and she reluctantly grants him temporary shelter inside her home. Once in close proximity, Connor tells Kaelyn the surprising truth—that he has seen her in his dreams that started over five years ago, and he is now determined to get to know her better! Kaelyn is as confused by his words as she is by the effect that his presence has over her, as Connor ensures that they become closer—just as he had planned. But in a twist of fate, Kaelyn attempts to use her powers as a witch to save Connor’s sister Christina from an evil manifestation that has settled within the child’s mind. Only then does Kaelyn begin to realise the full extent of her feelings for Connor, as she battles to come back safely to him so they can be together once again! The Witch’s Torment Victor is overjoyed when a hooded woman uses her magical ability to save him from his elder brother, who is moments away from beheading him as punishment for following their father’s dying wish and claiming leadership of their land. The mysterious woman, Christina, is both beautiful and kind-hearted, and it is not long before Victor falls in love with her. But Christina is a tormented by a shadowy presence from her past that will not leave her be. Until she exorcises her nemesis, she knows that she cannot be around Victor and give in to the love that she has come to feel for him. The Witch’s Music Rebecca is outraged when the outlaw Nathan catches, robs and kidnaps her. She has little regard or respect for a man who seems to have such a poor moral code. But has Rebecca judged Nathan too quickly? Is it true when he tells her that he doesn’t have a choice in his deeds, and that he is freedom fighting for the good of the vulnerable people of his land against the wicked Lord Greyjoy? When Nathan is captured by Lord Greyjoy’s men, Rebecca must decide what she believes. The only way he stands a chance of being rescued is if she uses her magical flute to cast a spell that might just save his life – and her only chance at understanding her strange attraction to the outlaw is to ensure that Nathan lives.
