    The Blazing World ePUB à The Blazing Epub / ↠ Kindle pamyatnik.pro blazing mobile, world pdf, The Blazing book, The Blazing World PDFEver since I read Danielle Dutton’s novel “Margaret the First” which fictionalizes the life of Margaret Cavendish and Siri Hustvedt’s extraordinary novel about a misunderstood female artist “The Blazing World” I’ve had a fascination with this pioneering writer of the 17th century and wanted to read her books Earlier this year I attended a feminist book club meeting about Dutton’s novel and that reignited my interest in Cavendish In the lead up to the announcement of this year’s longlist announcement for The Women’s Prize for Fiction it seemed like a great time to explore this intrepid figure’s writing “The Blazing World” was first published in 1666 and is often considered a forerunner to both science fiction and the utopian novel genres It’s a totally bonkers story of a woman who is stolen away to the North Pole only to find herself in a strange bejewelled kingdom of which she becomes the supreme Empress Here she consults with many different ani

    The Blazing World ePUB à The Blazing Epub / ↠ Kindle pamyatnik.pro blazing mobile, world pdf, The Blazing book, The Blazing World PDFHere's the thing about Restoration era literature it's steeped in contemporary references I took a Restoration literature class in undergrad and found most of the material boring and uite difficult to get through It reuired a lot of research just to understand conversations and plotI had forgotten about this when I picked up The Blazing World instead expecting something a little exciting The first science fiction written by a woman? A feminist Utopian? Sign me upThat's not uite what this is Instead I found commentary on contemporary political philosophical and scientific thought and since I don't know very much about 1666 England I didn't follow a lot of itIn this novel an English lady travels to another dimension There she finds that each animal is its own cognizant speaking society Thus there are the Bear

    The Blazing World ePUB à The Blazing Epub / ↠ Kindle pamyatnik.pro blazing mobile, world pdf, The Blazing book, The Blazing World PDFWhat a strange book befitting the reputation of its author – the 17th century English duchess Margaret Cavendish one of the first women authors to consistently publish under her own name These three tales The Contract Assaulted and Pursued Chastity and The Blazing World are filled with ideas about the power of virtue the fluidity of gender the wonder and perplexity of scientific theories and the importance of speaking your own truth whether it’s fashionable or not Although Cavendish’s voice is delightful – wry and warm – she couldn’t care less about things like transitions punctuation or paragraphs meaning you get huge blocks of text that leap all over the place I waded through this overwhelming swirl of thoughts over the course of a month I usually couldn’t handle than ten pages at a time and I’m glad I put in the effort
