Beautifully shot by cinematographer Robert Krasker (who won an Oscar for his work), the film is full of sequences that linger in the mind, while the acclaimed zither rendition of 'The Harry Lime Theme' by Anton Karas helps to create a rare, haunting movie atmosphere. The distinction was particularly sharp at Selby, where the isophone followed the line of the River Ouse, dividing the West and East Ridings.

He was an admirer of the social radicalism espoused by nineteenth century Fenians such as John Mitchel and Fintan Lalor. Dennis Price plays the penniless young hero, ninth in line to inherit the D'Ascoyne dukedom, who systematically sets about murdering the eight in the way to his title. The Uillean (elbow) pipes of the Irish tradition are quite a different matter. Informed by current debates and contemporary theories of mourning, Twiddy discusses themes of war and peace, social pastoral and environmental change, draws on the enduring influence of both Classical and Romantic poetics and explores poets' changing relationships with pastoral elegy throughout their careers.

Paul Christensen. "Struggling to Be a Courtier: the Poetry of Richard Wilbur." In very important ways - ways generally unthinkable in Victorian England, and certainly shunned if at all raised in English literary circles in the first half of this century - one's identity may have become, like one's loyalties, a matter of personal necessity: this has surprising, and even shocking consequences. The design on the halfpenny is of a bird in a Celtic style with Celtic knot work panels inserted.

They thus iron out diversity and multiplicity by dividing the world into such binaries as us and them, real and unreal, authentic and fake, original and imitation, true and false, poet and poetaster, and shift the attention away from the local, toward the centre. In his early to mid-20s, the actor who would go on to be the villain in one of the biggest box office smashes of all time was addicted to alcohol and crack cocaine. Hidden Symptoms, her first novel, set in a Roman Catholic university in Belfast, is her best longer work; three students find the foundations of their religious faith—in one case atheism—tested by tragedy.

The lexis of dialects is perhaps their most conspicuous feature for listeners and readers. (If we see unfamiliar grammatical forms, we may be able to infer meaning readily; but if we see a novel lexeme we can at best guess its meaning from the context.) This will include both forms that are peculiar to the dialect and forms that are found elsewhere, but have a distinctive meaning in the dialect. It encourages them to `read more demanding texts' and gives them `access to significant authors.' The poems `feature a range of forms and styles', `draw on literary traditions', `extend pupils' ideas and their moral and emotional understanding' and `use language in imaginative, precise and original ways'.

We tried hard to get the women and children to leave North King Street. Multitudes of cartoons depicting the Irish as small, ugly, simian creatures armed with liquor and a shillelagh pervaded the press; and such terms as "paddy-wagons," "shenanigans," and "shanty Irish" gained popularity. Protestant domination of Ireland was confirmed after two periods of war between Catholics and Protestants in 1641-52 and 1689-91. In comparison with other new immigrants, the English immigrants in the decades preceding the Civil War were more prone to separate from the community of their fellow immigrants, more willing to intermarry, and more enthusiastic in embracing the culture of their new land.

The Body's Cruel Joke: The Comic Theatre of Sarah Kane: Ken Urban (Harvard University) 9. About 95 percent of the Republic's population is Roman Catholic; most of the rest are Protestant. He remained sure of his conviction that a Home Rule agreement could solve the Irish question; in a response to MP Sir Edward Grey’s comment that: Despite such optimism, these comments reflect a rather naïve view of the Irish situation; it had become profoundly more complicated by 1914, and the rather apathetic attitude expressed by Grey illustrates how parliamentarians simply wanted the Home Rule issue out of the way.

Moving toward national self-determination, therefore, came with an analogous sectarian price: ‘In time, the cost of this [Easter 1916] was to be felt in north-east Ireland where the largest concentration of Protestants lived’ (p. 275). We single out the following, by Hugo Williams, not for its virtues or vices, but because it is not unrepresentative of a method prevalent in that anthology and related poetries: I think he knows about my life. This led to a long civil war, in which Stephen's queen Matilda (d. 1151) played a notable part.
