Wordsworth's 'Thanksgiving Ode' in Context By Richard Gravil
Paperback: $4.71
Prints in 3-5 business days
Wordsworth’s ‘Thanksgiving Ode’ expresses the poet’s sentiments on the final outcome of the Napoleonic Wars. It is possibly Wordsworth’s most notorious poem, widely... More > criticized for its alleged bellicosity and for one line in particular, addressed to God: ‘Yea, Carnage is thy Daughter’. Richard Gravil argues that the poem is a strenuous exercise in Christian Thanksgiving, appropriate to the close of two decades of global war. Its tone is reflective and self-searching, not bellicose, as befits a poet who called the Battle of Waterloo ‘a hideous rout’. Its thought is grounded in the Old Testament, as were the numerous sermons preached on the morning of 18 January 1816, a ‘Day Appointed for a General Thanksgiving’. The booklet explicates the poem’s demanding argument, and places it alongside a range of sermons offered by the Bishop of London, Anglican vicars, a Canadian rector, a Vicar Apostolic and a Unitarian Minister, united in thanksgiving at the close of what was, in reality, the first World War.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Anonymity, adjective "anonymous", is derived from the... More > Greek word ἀνωνυμία, anonymia, meaning "without a name" or "namelessness". In colloquial use, "anonymous" is used to describe situations where the acting person's name is unknown. It can be said as not using your own name, simply. Some writers have argued that namelessness, though technically correct, does not capture what is more centrally at stake in contexts of anonymity. The important idea here is that a person be non-identifiable, unreachable, or untrackable. Anonymity is seen as a technique, or a way of realizing, certain other values, such as privacy, or liberty.An important example for anonymity being not only protected, but enforced by law is probably the vote in free elections.

The book contains over 150 photographs (most from private collections) and depicting uniforms, vehicles and insignia of the unit. "This attractive publication may well be described as two books in one. While it would obviously appeal to the residents of this Saskatchewan community...in a larger sense Yorkton's Gunners provides interesting and informative insight into the development of field artillery in Canada and the challenges faced by the Militia since the end of the First World War. For those readers who enjoyed George Blackburn's classic accounts of his experience as an artillery officer in Normandy and beyond, I would recommend this book as a worthy adjunct."
