EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Media commentators have noted a rising public tolerance to the use of rude or offensive words in modern English. John Lydon’s obscene outburst on 'I’m a Celebrity...' only provoked a handful of complaints – a muted reaction compared to the furore following his use of the f-word on television twenty-eight years earlier. This timely and authoritative exploration of rudeness in modern English draws together experts from the academic world and the media – journalists, linguists, lexicographers and literary critics – and argues that rudeness is an important cultural phenomenon. Tightly edited with clear accessibly written pieces, the essays look at rudeness in: the media literature football chants street culture seaside postcards. With contributions from media figures including Tom Paulin and leading media-friendly linguists Deborah Cameron and Lynda Mugglestone, Rude Britannia raises concerns about linguistic and social codes, standards of decency, what is considered taboo in the public realm, constructions of bawdy, class, race, power and British identity.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Put together with some the country's best-known cartoonists and comedy writers, this exhibition explores British comic art from the 1600s to the present day. Bringing together a wide array of paintings, sculptures, film and photography, as well as graphic art and comic books, the exhibition celebrates a rich history of cartooning and visual jokes. The room on the Absurd is curated by comedian Harry Hill, and includes such diverse materials as Alice in Wonderland illustrations, David Shrigley's sculpture, and films by Edwina Ashton and Oliver Michaels. Within the Bawdy, Donald McGill's smutty seaside postcards can be seen with works by artists as different as Aubrey Beardsley, Sarah Lucas, and Grayson Perry. The rooms exploring Politics, Social Satire and Cruikshank's Victorian masterpiece The Worship of Bacchus, have been put together with Gerald Scarfe, Steve Bell, and the cartoonists from Viz. These show the power of comic art as a form of social and political commentary throughout history, from satires of Georgian society by Rowlandson and Gillray to Spitting Image's damning Thatcher puppet. Looking at comedy that is both timeless and of-its-time, Rude Britannia contrasts contemporary artists such as Angus Fairhurst with key historical pieces, and covers everything from Hogarth to the YBAs.

Using Britannia as a central figure, this book explores the neglected relationship between women, church, and nation. It argues that Britannia became established as an emblem of nation from 1688 and gained in importance over the following century. It draws on an exciting range of material to explore the extent and significance of women's involvement in debates about the new British nation and the Church of England. Discussing a wide range of printed sources,including letters, poetry, novels, plays, journals, sermons, devotional literature, political tracts, and travel writing, it also uses manuscript sources and frontspieces, paintings, drawings, and graphicsatire to bring to life debates about identity, faith, and nation. Writers discussed include Elizabeth Burnet, Elizabeth Carter, Catherine Talbot, Samuel Richardson, Thomas Amory, Samuel Foote, Elizabeth Montagu, Hester Lynch Thrale Piozzi, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Hannah More, along with images by William Hogarth, John Flaxman, Francis Hayman, James Gillray, and the Cruikshanks.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Tim Fountain knows more about sex than most people. His show,Sex Addict, was the target of widespread and vociferous critical media attention and led him to be labeled a pervert and a freak by much of the mainstream press. This, understandably, raised a few questions in his mind. Was his sex life really so different to the rest of Britain? Or was he just being rather more vocal about what he was up to? To find out, Tim has traveled around the UK, starting in Bradford at the site of his first 14-year-old fumble, to take the sexual temperature of our age. Visiting doll-fetishists and animal-fanciers, dogging fans and spanking enthusiasts, swingers' hotels and glory holes, Tim investigates our current attitudes on sex, peeping behind closed doors and exploring the private lives of Britons in an attempt to discover just what is going on beneath their stiff upper lips.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

To understand hatred and civility in today's world, argues Christopher Lane, we should start with Victorian fiction. Although the word "Victorian" generally brings to mind images of prudish sexuality and well-heeled snobbery, it has above all become synonymous with self-sacrifice, earnest devotion, and moral rectitude. Yet this idealized version of Victorian England is surprisingly scarce in the period's literature--and its journalism, sermons, poems, and plays--where villains, hypocrites, murderers, and cheats of all types abound.
