"William Herbert (1580-1630), third earl of Pembroke, and Lady Mary Wroth (1587?-1653?) were first cousins, the nephew and niece of Sir Philip Sidney, whose family was one of remarkable literary and political importance. Herbert was a poet, a voluminous letter writer, and one of the Jacobean court's richest and most powerful courtiers and politicians. Wroth was arguably the most important woman writer of the period; she authored the first Petrarchan poetic sequence, the first prose romance, and one of the first plays in English by a woman. In addition to their connections as cousins and as writers, they were lovers and the parents of two illegitimate children." "The Sidney Family Romance is both a "cultural biography" and a symptomatic reading of the sexual and textual relationships of Herbert and Wroth. Waller's analysis of their letters and literary works relies on a variety of critical apparatuses - social history, current political and social theories of the Jacobean period, and most notably (feminist) psychoanalytic theory. In both his biographical information and interpretive comments, Waller focuses on subject construction and gender construction of the early modern period, to find that Herbert's poems proceed from his life at court to engage in the gender politics of Petrarchan poetry, while Wroth's work proceeds from her disempowered position to project a desire for an autonomy which would lead to mutuality between the sexes." "Waller tries to find ways of analyzing the "inner lives" of his subjects, in the absence of direct evidence, and with a paucity of documentation. He examines historical documents, including the writings of the two cousins, and recent historical research, along with contemporary studies of family interactions and gender construction and detailed case histories drawn from nearly a century of clinical and therapeutic studies. The author concludes with a discussion of the crisis of gender in the seventeenth century as a contemporary crisis as well." "Family history has long been central to Renaissance studies. The Sidney Family Romance proceeds far beyond any previous works in bringing to bear the very rich and complicated network of ideas, observations, and literary images in the works of Herbert and Wroth."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This "hopeful" book presents a new theory of psychosexual development, and concurrently, of psychosocial evolution. Morrow claims the sexual division of nature was a primordial organizing principle for all cultures. However, evolving qualities assigned by culture to women and men, have over the millennia incorporated, absorbed, or superceded biological differences. The resultant schism between femininity and masculinity represents the deepest cleavage in the human species and is crippling both men and women. Morrow's hope is that the release in each sex of repressed qualities of the other sex will allow both sexes to be what they have never been--whole. "Unleashing Our Unknown Selves begins with a critique of central paradigms in contemporary social science and ends with a provocative new theory of psychosexual development. Dr. Morrow brilliantly demonstrates why men are just as damaged as women by our present patriarchal sex/gender system." Joseph L. White Univeristy of California, Irnive

You will not become rich on the outside until you become rich on the inside. “Your future self is begging you to read this book.” ~Tatyana Moshchenkov, Mompreneur “Jeremy’s ability to tell stories that paint pictures in your mind about how to achieve success is second to none.” ~Peter Beshay, CEO Here’s the bad news: Most people would rather pick up a beer than a book. They’d rather party than plan. They’d rather be entertained than be educated. Most people don’t set goals, and that’s why they work for people who do. Here’s the good news: You’re not like most people. That’s why you picked this book. That’s why you never trade what you want most – for what you want now. And that’s why you’re in pursuit of discovering how to create the best version of yourself possible. Jeremy McGilvrey is a Harvard-educated No. 1 bestselling author. When he’s not studying neuroscience or epigenetics, he’s helping business owners take their companies from brick-and-mortar to click-and-order by leveraging the massive power of the Internet. If you’re on the fence about reading this book, let me ask: when you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you who that child wanted you to become? If not, you need to start believing in yourself and your dreams again. This book will show you scientifically proven and action-based strategies so you can do just that: believe in yourself and become who you were meant to be.
