Literary critics often pursue analyses of music or painting and literature as 'sister arts', yet this is the first full-length study of the treatment of social dance in literature. A vital part of social life and courtship with its own symbolism, dance in the nineteenth century was a natural point of interest for novelists writing about these topics; and indeed ballroom scenes could themselves be used to further courtship narratives or illustrate other significant encounters. Including analyses of works by Jane Austen, W. M. Thackeray, George Eliot, and Anthony Trollope, as well as extensive material from nineteenth-century dance manuals, Cheryl A. Wilson shows how dance provided a vehicle through which writers could convey social commentary and cultural critique on issues such as gender, social mobility, and nationalism.
Animals from around the globe have gathered for a dance contest in the famous Tower Ballroom in Birmingham. Who will win? Camels dancing the conga? Flamingos dancing flamenco? Or penguins doing the polka? And what are those mischievous monkeys up to?
This is a book about self-esteem. We all have it, but sometimes it can be injured in such a way that it will scar a person for life. When someone you totally love and trust takes part of that self-esteem away, especially at an early age, you will more than likely believe it to its full wordage. This is what happened to me. It took more than forty years for it to come to its full fruition. It took a miracle to work a healing on me. It is possible to stop the invisible destruction of a hurt that is so deep, if you will only believe.
