Описание: This volume follows the beginnings and development of seventeenth-century English periodical print news and sees how contemporary news writers shaped their news discourse over the decades. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the volume analyses the different strategies employed by news writers of the day as they determined how best to present and write up both foreign and domestic events for a news-obsessed English readership.In his examination of the language used in corantos, newsbooks and gazettes—the first forms of periodical news in the English press—Nicholas Brownlees provides innovative analyses regarding a rich variety of topics including: the role of translation in early periodical news; the language of hard news in corantos and news pamphlets; forms and styles of epistolary news; fluctuating editorial strategies used to address and involve the reader; text structure and prototypical headlines; English news discourse within a wider European news context; the language of propaganda in the English Civil War; periodicity and the reporting of the Tuscan crisis in 1653; the language of ‘Advertisements’ in The London Gazette; the changing fortunes and semantics of News, Intelligence and Advice.In its focus on how news writers worked and experimented with seventeenth-century English language structures and discourse conventions to forge a style of news rhetoric that could inform, persuade and even entertain, this volume is essential reading for all historians, news analysts and historical linguists working in the early modern period.
Описание: Seventeenth-century English news writers knew there was a market for news – about that there is no doubt. Right from the very first decade, there was what has been variously described as a ‘thirst’, ‘appetite’, or even ‘itch’ for news about contemporary events and affairs.However, whilst the readers were out there, they were not prepared to hand over their two pence or penny for a weekly news pamphlet or gazette unless convinced that what they were getting was worth the money. And it was this that disturbed and troubled news writers then just as much as it does now in the twenty-first century. In short, how does the writer present news? What language do they use to persuade the news readers that the money they are spending is a good investment?It is this question, which lies at the forefront of the seventeenth-century ‘news revolution’, that is examined in the updated edition of The Language of Periodical News in Seventeenth-Century England. Nicholas Brownlees follows the beginnings and development of seventeenth-century English periodical print news, and sees how contemporary news writers set about responding to these fundamental presentational and communicative concerns. This interdisciplinary examination of seventeenth-century news discourse contains innovative analyses regarding a rich variety of topics including: • The role of translation in early periodical news;• The language of hard news in corantos and news pamphlets; • Forms and styles of epistolary news; • Fluctuating editorial strategies in addressing and involving the reader; • Text structure and prototypical headlines;• English news discourse within a wider European news context;• The language of propaganda; • Periodicity and the reporting of the Tuscan crisis in 1653;• The language of ‘Advertisements’ in The London Gazette; • The changing fortunes and semantics of News, Intelligence and Advice.

With the growth of popular literary forms, particularly the periodical, during the eighteenth century, women began to assume an unprecedented place in print culture as readers and writers. Yet at the same time the very textual practices of that culture inscribed women within an increasingly restrictive and oppressive set of representations. First published in 1989, this title examines the emergence and dramatic growth of periodical literature, showing how the journals solicited women as subscribers and contributors, whilst also attempting to regulate their conduct through the promotion of exemplary feminine types. By enclosing its female readership within a discourse that defined women in terms of love, matrimony, the family, and the home, the English periodical became one of the main linguistic sites for the construction of the eighteenth-century ideology of domestic womanhood.
Based on the close scrutiny of the popular periodical press between 1690 and 1760, including journals such as the "Athenian Mercury," the "Tatler," and the "Spectator," this study will be of particular value to any student of the relationship between women and print culture, the development of women's magazines, and the study of literary audiences.
