Publisher: Liverpool University Press | ISBN: 0853237271 | edition 2001 | PDF | 224 pages | 1,50 mb

With the "Liverpool Scene", poetry registered nationally as a popular art form arguably for the first time. Since then, poetry appears to have contracted once more to its metropolitan, literary heartland. So what happened to the "Mersey sound"? Gladsongs and Gatherings examines this question through the ideas and reflections of poets and poetry readers. The book includes interviews with the famous 60s trio, and places their experience alongside that of contemporary poets who continue to find the city a rich source of inspiration.

Adorned in Dreams: Fashion and Modernity

Adorned in Dreams: Fashion and Modernity by Wilson
English | July 1, 1992 | ISBN: 0520061225 | 290 pages | PDF | 90 MB

When Adorned in Dreams was first published in 1985, Angela Carter described the book as "the best I have read on the subject, bar none." From haute couture to haberdashery, "deviant" dress to Dior, Elizabeth Wilson traces the social and cultural history of fashion and its complex relationship to modernity. She also discusses fashion's vociferous opponents, from the "dress reform" movement to certain strands of feminism. Wilson delights in the power of fashion to mark out identity or subvert it. This brand new edition of her book follows recent developments to bring the story of fashionable dress up to date, exploring the grunge look inspired by bands like Nirvana, the "boho chic" of the mid 90's, retro-dressing, and the meanings of dress from the veil to soccer player David Beckham's pink-varnished toenails.
