Abstract

This series, developed from Tom Burton’s groundbreaking study, William Barnes’s Dialect Poems: A Pronunciation Guide (The Chaucer Studio Press, 2010), sets out to demonstrate for the first time what all of Barnes’s dialect poems would have sounded like in the pronunciation of his own time and place. Every poem is accompanied by a facing-page phonemic transcript and by an audio recording freely available from this website.

Abstract

"This is the second volume in a series that sets out to provide a phonemic transcript and an audio recording of each individual poem in Barnes’s three collections of Poems of Rural Life in the Dorset Dialect. Beginning with two poems that inspired Vaughan Williams to set them to music, and ending with a paean of praise for the poet’s native county, this second collection contains 105 poems of immense range and power. There are poems of longing, love, and loss; pain and protest; tears and laughter; grief and consolation; feasting and celebration; music and birdsong; falsehood, friendship, and faith; generosity and meanness; bad temper and good; stasis and travel; flowers and trees; storm and calm. “Here,” as Dryden said of Chaucer’s poems, “is God’s plenty”."

Abstract

With 96 poems in an astonishing variety of metrical forms, the volume includes some of those that are most loved and admired: poems of tragedy (“Woak Hill”, “The turnstile”) and comedy (“John Bloom in Lon’on”, “A lot o’ maïdens a-runnèn the vields”); celebrations of love anticipated (“In the spring”) and love fulfilled (“Don’t ceäre”); protests against injustice and snobbery (“The love child”); struggles to accept God’s will (“Grammer a-crippled”); and poems on numerous other subjects, with an emotional range stretching from the deepest of grief to the highest of joy."

Abstract

A fresh anthropological look at a central but neglected topic: the profound changes in rural life throughout Western Europe today. As locals leave for jobs in cities they are replaced by neo-hippies, lifestyle-seekers, eco-activists, and labour migrants from beyond the EU.With detailed ethnographic examples, contributors analyse new modes of living rurally and emerging forms of social organisation. As incomers’ dreams come up against residents’ realities, they detail the clashes and the cooperations between old and new residents. They make us rethink the rural/urban divide, investigate regionalists’ politicisation of rural life and heritage, and reveal how locals use EU monies to prop up or challenge existing hierarchies. They expose the consequences of and reactions to grand EU-restructuring policies, which at times threaten to turn the countryside into a manicured playground for escapee urbanites.This book will appeal to anyone seriously interested in the realities of rural life.
