Marking a celebratory exhibition in 2017 at Gothic House, their family home in Charlbury, Oxfordshire, this book brings together highlights of sculptures and paintings by Briony and Andrew Lawson. Over the last half-century, these two artists have been inspired by their surroundings to produce a dynamic and varied body of work. Their shared passion for the North Devon landscape is infused throughout much of their work. Briony Lawson has been sculpting in wood, stone and clay since her days as a student at City & Guilds Art School in London. Her prolific body of work draws on natural and organic subjects, often pared down to the most simple and elemental forms. Known worldwide as a garden photographer, Andrew Lawson was trained as a painter. His painting has always informed the eye behind the camera. This book surveys Andrew's work from his early school posters and from his student days at Oxford, to his subsequent paintings that draw inspiration from his favoured woodland and sea landscapes of Devon.

Downwardly Mobile - The Changing Fortunes of American Realism (Paperback): Andrew Lawson Downwardly Mobile - The Changing Fortunes of American Realism (Paperback)
Andrew Lawson
R736 Discovery Miles 7 360 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the unstable economy of the nineteenth-century, few Americans could feel secure. Paper money made values less tangible, while a series of financial manias, panics, and depressions clouded everyday life with uncertainty and risk. In this groundbreaking study, Andrew Lawson traces the origins of American realism to a new structure of feeling: the desire of embattled and aspiring middle class for a more solid and durable reality. The story begins with New England authors Susan Warner and Rose Terry Cooke, whose gentry-class families became insolvent in the wake of the 1837 Panic, and moves to the western frontier, where the early careers of Rebecca Harding Davis and William Dean Howells were shaped by a constant struggle for social position and financial security. We see how the pull of downward social mobility affected even the outwardly successful, bourgeois family of Henry James in New York, while the drought-stricken wheat fields of Iowa and South Dakota produced the most militant American realist, Hamlin Garland. For these writers, realism offered to stabilize an uncertain world by capturing it with a new sharpness and accuracy. It also revealed a new cast of social actors-factory workers, slaves, farm laborers, the disabled, and the homeless, all victims of an unregulated market. Combining economic history and literary analysis to powerful effect, Downwardly Mobile shows how the fluctuating fortunes of the American middle class forced the emergence of a new kind of literature, while posing difficult political choices about how the middle class might remedy its precarious condition.

Law and Ethics in Intensive Care (Paperback): Christopher Danbury, Christopher Newdick, Carl Waldmann, Andrew Lawson Law and Ethics in Intensive Care (Paperback)
Christopher Danbury, Christopher Newdick, Carl Waldmann, Andrew Lawson
R1,550 Discovery Miles 15 500 Special order

Critical care is a highly complex area of medicine, in which 30% of patients are expected to die. Developments in law have had a major impact on treatment expected and received in the ICU. However, the law and ethics surrounding clinical practice are not always clear, and generate much concern for those working in intensive care. This book outlines how the law has changed and the impact this has had on the practice of intensive care medicine. Particular clinical scenarios are outlined to illustrate real problems that develop during normal clinical practice, with discussion of the legal and ethical framework that arises from these scenarios, and possible solutions to the problems that are identified. It also covers issues such as consent, who decides children's rights, living wills, withholding and withdrawing of life-saving care, whether there is a right to insist on treatment, definitions of 'death', ICU funding, and the breaking of bad news. The emphasis is on practical information that will inform all professionals involved with patients admitted to the ICU, including doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

Class and the Making of American Literature - Created Unequal (Paperback): Andrew Lawson Class and the Making of American Literature - Created Unequal (Paperback)
Andrew Lawson
R889 Discovery Miles 8 890 Special order

This book refocuses current understandings of American Literature from the revolutionary period to the present-day through an analytical accounting of class, reestablishing a foundation for discussions of class in American culture. American Studies scholars have explored the ways in which American society operates through inequality and modes of social control, focusing primarily on issues of status group identities involving race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and disability. The essays in this volume focus on both the historically changing experience of class and its continuing hold on American life. The collection visits popular as well as canonical literature, recognizing that class is constructed in and mediated by the affective and the sensational. It analyzes class division, class difference, and class identity in American culture, enabling readers to grasp why class matters, as well as the economic, social, and political matter of class. Redefining the field of American literary cultural studies and asking it to rethink its preoccupation with race and gender as primary determinants of identity, contributors explore the disciplining of the laboring body and of the emotions, the political role of the novel in contesting the limits of class power and authority, and the role of the modern consumer culture in both blurring and sharpening class divisions.

Walt Whitman and the Class Struggle (Hardcover): Andrew Lawson Walt Whitman and the Class Struggle (Hardcover)
Andrew Lawson; Series edited by Ed Folsom
R648 Discovery Miles 6 480 Special order

By reconsidering Whitman not as the proletarian voice of American diversity, but as a historically specific poet with roots in the antebellum lower middle class, Andrew Lawson in ""Walt Whitman and the Class Struggle"" defines the tensions and ambiguities about culture, class, and politics that underlie his poetry. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources from across the range of antebellum print culture, Lawson uses close readings of ""Leaves of Grass"" to reveal Whitman as an artisan and an autodidact ambivalently balanced between his sense of the injustice of class privilege and his desire for distinction. Consciously drawing upon the languages of both the elite culture above him and the vernacular culture below him, Whitman constructed a kind of middle linguistic register that attempted to filter these conflicting strata and defuse their tensions: ""You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, / You shall listen to all sides and filter them from yourself."" By exploring Whitman's internal struggle with the contradictions and tensions of his class identity, Lawson locates the source of his poetic innovation. By revealing a class-conscious and conflicted Whitman, he realigns our understanding of the poet's political identity and distinctive use of language, and thus valuably alters our perspective on his poetry.
