Bestselling author and online curator Stephen Ellcock selects pivotal images from art, films, t.v. and even children's books to chart the weird and wildly generous and creative spirit of England as it has developed over several thousand years This is a dream of England, a glimpse of what it has been and what it could be. Something we capture in fleeting glimpses, outside the everyday interactions, the politicking and the rhetoric. This book tries to piece it together, from the films, tv shows and art that we have made, and the stories and poems we have written. How do we relate to the land that we live on? What energy do we draw from it, perhaps unconsciously? And what can we learn from the past that we can apply now, to heal this country? More than one hundred carefully selected images ranging from medieval psalters to contemporary television - plus accompanying text - show that English spirituality is not just rural Arcadia and Morris dancers on the village green and it embraces both the sublime and the terrifying, the bucolic and the nightmarish. It is an affectionate tribute to the English spirit in both its calm and its manic manifestations. We have a reputation for eccentricity but this isn't a hymn of praise to everything quirky. It's deeper and stranger than that. Instead it's a scrapbook of "the weird and the eerie", collecting images of some of the greatest moments in our culture, when things end up far from idyllic. It's also an inspirational book that shows off the best that all the different inhabitants of this land have been able to create across all media and in our landscapes, buildings and streetscapes. England is a tolerant, generous and wildly creative place and these things need to be asserted.

Every act and every scene has at least one musical element. This is not very surprising, as Shakespeare had his own musicians, whom he did not have to pay, and thus he could afford such a variety of music.

Bibliography.........................................8 I. Introduction The Tempest is full of music, singing, and dancing. Every act and every scene has at least one musical element. This is not very surprising, as Shakespeare had his own musicians, whom he did not have to pay, and thus he could afford such a variety of music. The whole play takes place on a desert island which is inhabited by only three people. Particularly, the “unusual soundscape [shall] underpin[s] the strangeness of the island” (Shakespeare, Introduction 23-4). Hearing all the songs accompanied by “solemn” music is not only spectacular for the audience, even Caliban, whom we know as a rude and uneducated native of the island, is fascinated by “the isle [which] is full of noises, / Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not” (3. 2. 127-128). Thus he wants to calm his new friends Stephano and Trinculo, who had never seen and heard such things. Moreover, Ariel casts a spell over Ferdinand with his music and he follows it, although he has just shipwrecked and a different behaviour would be expected in the case of such a catastrophe. We can see that music has a huge impact on both the figures in the play and the audience, as this drama was actually written to be performed rather than to be read. Nonetheless it is not enough to say that music is only used to create a nice background sound for the play. One can even go so far and say that music plays the main role and the whole play only revolves around music. In order to prove this, I will show in the following the important functions of music and musical elements. Firstly, I would like to demonstrate the music's function as a message for both the figures and the audience, secondly, the music's function as an essential part of the play and last but not least, the most important function – music as a 'power-tool' for Prospero and in a sense also for Ariel.

Shakespeare's valedictory play is also one of his most poetical and magical. The story involves the spirit Ariel, the savage Caliban, and Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, now a wizard living on a remote island who uses his magic to shipwreck a party of ex-compatriots.
