Book City of Rogues and Schnorrers

Download or read book City of Rogues and Schnorrers written by Jarrod Tanny and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 2011-11-14 with total page 289 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Old Odessa, on the Black Sea, gained notoriety as a legendary city of Jewish gangsters and swindlers, a frontier boomtown mythologized for the adventurers, criminals, and merrymakers who flocked there to seek easy wealth and lead lives of debauchery and excess. Odessa is also famed for the brand of Jewish humor brought there in the 19th century from the shtetls of Eastern Europe and that flourished throughout Soviet times. From a broad historical perspective, Jarrod Tanny examines the hybrid Judeo-Russian culture that emerged in Odessa in the 19th century and persisted through the Soviet era and beyond. The book shows how the art of eminent Soviet-era figures such as Isaac Babel, Il'ia Ilf, Evgenii Petrov, and Leonid Utesov grew out of the Odessa Russian-Jewish culture into which they were born and which shaped their lives.

Book Irish Rogues and Rascals     From Francis Shackleton to Charlie Haughey

Download or read book Irish Rogues and Rascals From Francis Shackleton to Charlie Haughey written by Joseph McArdle and published by Gill & Macmillan Ltd. This book was released on 2007-10-16 with total page 278 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Irish history is littered with rogues, larger-than-life characters who range from cheeky scamps to vicious chancers. In Irish Rogues and Rascals, Joseph MacArdle looks at some of the most notorious Irishmen to find out just exactly what a 'rogue' is. Is it a dastardly knave, a cheeky rascal or a devilish trickster? Is it a lovable scamp or is it someone who is charming and delightful but with a bit of mischievousness and sauciness thrown into the mix as well? Whatever the answer, the fascinating collection of Irish rogues in Joseph McArdle's hilarious book Irish Rogues and Rascals embraces vicious chancers at one extreme and lovable imps at the other. These Irish rogues and rascals range from Myler Magrath, a sixteenth-century character who loved wine, women and money – and who was both Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor and Protestant Archbishop of Cashel at the same time through to Tiger Roche, the infamous eighteenth-century rake and duellist who drank and fought his way from Ireland to Cape Town. They include more modern figures such as Paul Singer, a fraudster who tricked countless people out of their hard-earned money in the 1950s, and Des Traynor, the mastermind of Irish tax evasion schemes for much of the late twentieth century , and not forgetting the most accomplished political rogue of modern times, Charles J. Haughey. Joseph McArdle writes with affection about his colourful rogues, usually seeing more to admire in their cleverness and brazenness than to deplore in the results of their conduct. His rogues may not always be honourable – but they usually are fun and their stories make compelling reading.

Book Rogues  Romance  and Exoticism in French Cinema of the 1930s

Download or read book Rogues Romance and Exoticism in French Cinema of the 1930s written by Colleen Kennedy-Karpat and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2013 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many popular French films of the 1930s captured the world and brought it into neighborhood cinemas for filmgoers who craved adventure. These films often served as visual postcards from the French empire, which enjoyed an unprecedented visibility in domestic popular culture between the world wars. But the public appetite for the exotic also transcended imperial borders. Exoticist films displayed landscapes and different that lay beyond the metropole, many of which were not subject to European rule. This broad conception of the exotic meant that French narrative cinema represented both colonial and non-colonial settings and populations, developing a coherent set of tropes that were shaped, yet not entirely defined, by the politics of imperial rule. Empire alone cannot address the full range of the French exoticist imaginary that was projected onto movie screens in the 30s. Only by venturing beyond imperial boundaries can we fully understand how the French saw non-Westerners and, by extension, how they saw themselves during this tumultuous decade. Rogues, Romance, and Exoticism in French Cinema of the 1930s proposes a critical framework for exoticist cinema that includes and exceeds the limits of empire. From rogue colons to the m tisse in love, from the deserts of North Africa to the streets of Shanghai, this book identifies and analyzes recurring figures, common settings, major stars, plot devices, and narrative outcomes that dominated exoticist cinema at its popular peak.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A SCANDALOUS PORTRAIT He took one look at the painting and all the air in the room disappeared. . . The Earl of Huntington (Hunt) is a silent partner in a successful gambling hell run by his two brothers. A well-respected member of the ton, he moves about in Society as an unknown agent for the Crown on its most sensitive matters. Lady Diana is a long-time friend of Hunt's with the ability to embroil herself in difficult matters that require his assistance. Once again she needs his help, but this situation could be a major scandal if discovered. Against his better judgment, Hunt agrees to her scheme, but this time the circumstances cause him to view the woman he’d always considered just a friend in a different way. The passion and desire that sparks between them must be squelched since she would never do as his Countess. Scandal follows her every move... A LADY'S TRUST Can he trust his instincts, or is she playing him for a fool? Driscoll Rose and his two brothers own and run The Rose Room, a well-known and profitable gaming club in London. Unknown to those who visit and spend their money there, the brothers also work for the Crown in positions only known to a mysterious man at the Home Office. Miss Amelia Pence is on the run from her step-brother who has nefarious plans for her. Late one rainy night she crawls into Driscoll’s office window and falls at his feet. Intrigued by the woman, he offers her a job as the only female dealer in the Rose Room. Much to Driscoll's frustration, Amelia is secretive about who she is, and where she lives since she can trust no one. The growing attraction between them and his desire for her is causing him to dismiss the fact that crowds of gamblers swarm her table each evening, but the profits she turns in are not what they should be. Can Driscoll convince Amelia to trust him with her secrets or will he discover a deception that contradicts everything he believes in his heart about heart? Just when he decides to confront her, she disappears. . . AN INCONVENIENT ARRANGEMENT Enemies to Lovers He's a rake and a rogue, owns a gambling club and works occasional assignments for the Crown. She's a language genius with a strong dislike for rakes, gambling, and other nefarious pursuits. When they are paired on an assignment animosity turns to passion. But is passion enough when danger comes to call? A ROSE FOR LAURA A tug of war over a house they each want. One will win, but will they both lose their hearts? Keniel Singh is a bi-racial by-blow of the former Earl of Huntington, unknown to his three brothers, owners of the well-known Rose Room gaming house in London. Raised in Jamaica, Keniel learns of his British heritage on his mother's death bed and sets out to find his family. Miss Laura Benson is an almost spinster who champions children on the London streets. She’s in need of a new home to lease for an orphanage she manages. She finds the perfect house, but Mr. Singh is also viewing the property and he plans to purchase it. When he ends up the owner, he offers to help Laura find a property for her orphans. As the attraction grows between the two while they spend time together searching for a suitable home, Keniel holds back, concerned his heritage would cause problems for Laura among her peers. Raised in a more tolerant home, Laura dismisses his issue and is more troubled by Keniel's tie to the sort of business that is patronized by the very men who create the orphans she loves. Will their differences keep them apart?

Book The Aesthetics of Service in Early Modern England

Download or read book The Aesthetics of Service in Early Modern England written by Elizabeth Rivlin and published by Northwestern University Press. This book was released on 2012 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In The Aesthetics of Service in Early Modern England, Elizabeth Rivlin explores the ways in which servant-master relationships reshaped literature. The early modern servant is enjoined to obey his or her master out of dutiful love, but the servant's duty actually amounts to standing in for the master, a move that opens the possibility of becoming master. Rivlin shows that service is fundamentally a representational practice, in which the servant who acts for a master merges with the servant who acts as a master. Rivlin argues that in the early modern period, servants found new positions as subjects and authors found new forms of literature. Representations of servants and masters became a site of contact between pressing material concerns and evolving aesthetic ones. Offering readings of dramas by Shakespeare, Jonson, and Thomas Dekker and prose fictions by Thomas Deloney and Thomas Nashe, Rivlin suggests that these authors discovered their own exciting and unstable projects in the servants they created.
