A play by one of Britain's best-selling writers When Sita and her children leave India to join her husband in England, she is forced to sell her cow, but she keeps her milking bucket in the hope that she will be able to buy another cow in Leicester. But England is nothing like she expected: faced with prejudice from the English and restrictions of tradition from her family, Sita clings to the dream of the cow and some sense of her own identity. "The Great Celestial Cow is a little gem...It's very funny, touching, telling and moving...here is a story with much to say...I kept bursting into spontaneous applause." Robin Thornber, Guardian

A play by one of Britain's best-selling writers Bazaar and Rummage brings together a neurotic do-gooder, a trainee social worker and three agoraphobics who have been persuaded to venture out of their homes to run a jumble sale. "As a study of agoraphobia, Bazaar and Rummage...is written with great verve, style and wit." (Benedict Nightingale); Set in an adult literacy class where the student's fear of ignorance is as much of a handicap as their inability to read, Groping for Words is a "close up of the social scrap-heap, written in a fine vein of comic indignation and giving a voice to people whose lives are mainly spent in queues and waiting rooms." (Irving Wardle, The Times); Womberang shows free spirit Rita Onions bringing joy and anarchy to the grim waiting-room of a gynaecology clinic. "A daydream of mastered fear" (New Society)

Discover the brilliantly funny True Confessions of Margaret Hilda Roberts by Sue Townsend, 'the funniest person in the world' - Caitlin Moran, The Times Tuesday May 24th Had a lie in until 6am. Then got out of bed and had a brisk rub down with the pumice stone. I opened the curtains and saw that the sun was shining brightly. (A suspicion is growing in my mind that the BBC is not to be trusted.) Margaret Hilda Roberts is a rather ambitious 14 1⁄4 year old grocer's daughter from Grantham. She can't abide laziness, finds four hours of chemistry homework delightful and believes she is of royal birth - or at least destined for great things. But Margaret knows that good things never come to those who wait . . . These are the secret diary entries of a girl born into an ordinary life, yet who might just go on to become something really rather extraordinary, and she is brilliantly brought vividly to life by bestselling author Sue Townsend, Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades.

The Theatre of Caryl Churchill documents and analyses the major plays and productions of one of Britain's greatest and most innovative playwrights. Drawing on hundreds of never-before-seen archival sources from the US and the UK, it provides an essential guide to Churchill's groundbreaking work for students and theatregoers. Each chapter illuminates connections across plays and explores major scripts alongside unpublished and unfinished projects. Each considers the rehearsal room, the stage, and the printed text. Each demonstrates how Churchill has pushed the boundaries of dramatic aesthetics while posing urgent political and theoretical questions. But since each maps Churchill's work in a different way, each deploys a different reading practice - for many approaches are necessary to characterise such a restlessly imaginative and prolific career. Through its five interlocking parts, The Theatre of Caryl Churchill tells a story about the playwright, her work, and its place in contemporary drama.

This book is about situations we all have had, or will go through literally in life that will either transform our minds or allow us the opportunity to have other situations that will. The need to know yourself and your purpose for being here is the key point of the journey. The book shares that in life we all have stories, adventures, even tragedies that we feel are real. We have them but we are not them. The chapters describe the high roads and the low roads of love, sex, relationships, talents, servitude and gratitude. Ultimately the book pronounces the importance of the male and female balance. It reintroduces the significance of The Woman, The Mother, The Female and her presence in the world. She is the focal point of this book. Due to the patriarchal dominance for so long, this book is written to cause thoughts of what the world would be like when the balance of both male and female energy is in total harmony without, dominance, control and power for the gratification of the false ego verses the higher sense of being.

British Women S Comic Fiction 1890 1990

British Women's Comic Fiction, 1890-1990: Not Drowning, But Laughing focuses upon women who have not merely produced comic texts, but used their comedies to examine laughter itself as a problematic issue. Whether to embrace laughter wholeheartedly, whether to do so in a cautious and limited manner, or whether to forswear it entirely-women's opinions and, indeed, feminists' opinions have seldom been in accord on an answer. For women writers of the past century, a century of activism, laughter has been something to be weighed carefully in terms of its ethical, political, and pragmatic relationship to feminist values, as well as its ability or inability to help women survive.This study begins in the 1890s, when the word feminism first appeared in Britain and the white, middle-class New Woman of the period met with public antagonism in the guise of jokes. It concludes in the 1980s, when British feminism remade itself as a newly diverse movement-especially in matters of race, class, and sexual orientation-composed of communities that used laughter for different ends. Along the way, it demonstrates that, throughout the twentieth century, some of the most significant debates about British women's lives, roles, and identities occurred around and through the issue of comedy.Rather than offering an exhaustive survey of all comic fiction produced by women over the past 100 years, Margaret D. Stetz's book examines a few texts in depth, especially those that have been excluded from the usual canon. It argues for the importance of reading little-known, lost, or undervalued works by women, and for seeing these so-called minor texts as shedding light on major questions, including how female writers have found ways to reshape genres traditionally reserved for or defined by men. Among the figures discussed are late-Victorian feminists and their modern British successors, ranging from Dame Rebecca West to the Jewish novelist, Anita Brookner, to the Bombay-born lesbian fantasist, Suniti Namjoshi. This volume constitutes a major contribution to the field of Women's Studies, as well as to the history of British literature and to the cultural study of comedy.

Egyptian Mythology

From stories of resurrected mummies and thousand-year-old curses to powerful pharaohs and the coveted treasures of the Great Pyramids, ancient Egypt has had an unfaltering grip on the modern imagination. Now, in Egyptian Mythology, Geraldine Pinch offers a comprehensive introduction that untangles the mystery of Egyptian Myth. Spanning Ancient Egyptian culture--from 3200 BC to AD 400--Pinch opens a door to this hidden world and casts light on its often misunderstood belief system. She discusses the nature of myths and the history of Egypt, from the predynastic to the postpharaonic period. She explains how Egyptian culture developed around the flooding of the Nile, or the "inundation," a phenomenon on which the whole welfare of the country depended, and how aspects of the inundation were personified as deities. She explains that the usually cloudless skies made for a preoccupation with the stars and planets. Indeed, much early Egyptian mythology may have developed to explain the movement of these celestial bodies. She provides a timeline covering the seven stages in the mythical history of Egypt and outlining the major events of each stage, such as the reign of the sun God. A substantial A to Z section covers the principal themes and concepts of Egyptian mythology as well as the most important deities, demons, and other characters. For anyone who wants to know about Anubis, the terrifying canine god who presided over the mummification of bodies and guarded burials, or Hathor, the golden goddess who helped women to give birth and the dead to be reborn, or an explanation of the nun, the primeval ocean from which all life came, Egyptian Mythology is the place to look.

The Annual Review Of Women In World Religions

The Annual Review of Women in World Religions is polymethodic, interdisciplinary, and multitraditional in its approach to the study of women and religion. It not only allows the comparative dimension to appear in bolder relief, but also helps establish a dialogue between the two solitudes of humanistic and social scientific studies in the field. This annual encourages the exploration of horizons and perspectives in women’s studies not possible otherwise. It is not confined in scope to the traditional religions—it also includes new religious movements within its scope, while at the same time providing an outlet for specialized studies on women in traditional religions to reach a wider audience. It thus incorporates both the traditional and contemporary dimension. This work grew out of the publication of a book released in 1987 by SUNY Press entitled Women in World Religions, edited by Arvind Sharma. The reception indicated that it met a felt need. It also vindicated the historical and phenomenological approach to the study of women in world religions. The relevance of both subject and method called for an ongoing forum to continue discussing themes covered in the book. this journal provides such a forum. The first volume contains essays by Mary Gerhart (Another Troy for Her to Burn: The True Story of Euripides’s Helen), Denyse Rockey (Three Faces of the Great Goddess: Shulamite, Cinderella, Black Virgin), Winnie Tomm (Goddess Consciousness and Social Realities: The ‘Permeable Self’), and Katherine K. Young (Goddesses, Feminists, and Scholars).
