But passion turns to jeopardy for them both as the Wars of the Roses wreak havoc on the realm. Housman Of all Willa Cather's characters, Godfrey St. Regardless of which aspect of the medico-scientific figure of the doctor that we believe most attracted Cather in her adolescence, however, it seems clear that the practice of medical science in her "Doctor William" days represented to her a site of power—one ultimately unavailable to her because of her gender, whatever costume she might affect and one that she finally abandoned.

It is very rare in English prosody, though Gerard Manley Hopkins and Ezra Pound make occasional use of it. Here again, in the English original as well as in the translation, the regular rhythm and the binary structure of the sentences convey an impression of peace in the whole passage.

Historians, like fiction writers, wrote according to a four-fold logic of emplotment, according to whether they saw their subject matter as a romance, tragedy comedy, or satire. So let's focus on small organs from around 1300 - not big church organs, but the kind that can be moved around and played without a committee. (Some of the earliest larger organs required as many as four men to pump the bellows and two more to work the sliders.)

This novella purports to tell the story of this fictitious daimyo. And more in common with this: Remember, knights were professional warriors, and when there wasn't a war to fight, they had to find something to do with their war-boners. We don’t care as much about who won this or that battle as we do when Jaime Lannister loses a hand or Lucius Vorenus liberates his daughters. And that love might even be the path to her freedom... Young Hector finds himself alone, homeless, and penniless when his father dies after being blackmailed and disgraced.
