Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hortus conclusus is a Latin term, meaning literally enclosed garden. The word 'garden' is at root the same as the word 'yard'. It means an enclosure, observed Derek Clifford, at the outset of a series of essays on garden design, in which he skirted the conventions of the hortus conclusus. Thus, at their root, both of the words in hortus conclusus refer linguistically to enclosure. Hortus conclusus is both an attribute and title of the Virgin Mary in Medieval and Renaissance poetry and art, suddenly appearing in paintings and manuscript illuminations about 1400, and a genre of actual garden that was enclosed both symbolically and as a practical concern, a major theme in the history of gardening.

The desire for beautiful gardens is as strong as ever. An own garden as a private oasis of well-being, but also as a place of prestige can be much more than lawn and flowerbed, path, and hedge. The projects by professional landscape and garden architects presented in this volume show which elements, components and structures, composed and conceived with care and sophistication, constitute stylish and convincing garden design. The interaction with the surroundings, usually the house that belongs to the particular garden, always plays an important role. This can be sometimes strictly geometrical in a near-natural environment, unpretentious in front of a luxury villa, or freely moving, loosening up minimalist architecture. The size of the presented gardens from very different climatic zones ranges from a green backyard of less than 20 square meters to park-like grounds of over 2,000.

The conclusion to the Fifth Angel's Trumpet trilogy. The "Sealed Garden", or symbolically translated as "The goal of life," is what Hortus Conclusus means. Marc lived a long life, and these last five volumes catalog what was left of his. From poetic renditions of his days living in the apartment with Erin, tending to his nightclub; to Erin's Journal, covering what she was up to in the first book; and finishing with Marc and Erin's life in Indonesia, where they sought a secluded life from the Eighty Years War. It ends with an appendix of glossary terms, written in dictionary like diction, to help one navigate through the complex, and rich world of The Fifth Angel's Trumpet.

Figuring the Feminine

The Rhetoric of Female Embodiment in Medieval Hispanic Literature

Author: Jill Ross

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

Figuring the Feminine examines the female body as a means of articulating questions of literary authority and practice within the cultural spheres of the Iberian Peninsula (both Romance and Semitic) as well as in the larger Latinate literary culture. It demonstrates the centrality in medieval literary culture of the gendering of rhetorical and hermeneutical acts involved in the creation of texts and meaning, and the importance of the medieval Iberian textual tradition in this process, a complex multicultural tradition that is often overlooked in medieval literary scholarship. This study adopts an innovative methodology informed by current theories of the body and gender to approach Hispanic literature from a femininst perspective. Jill Ross offers new readings of medieval Hispanic texts (Latin, Castilian, and Hebrew) including Prudentius' Peristephanon, Gonzalo de Berceo's Milagros de Nuestra Señora, Shem Tov of Carrión's Battle Between the Pen and the Scissors, and several others. She highlights ways in which these texts contribute to the understanding of gender in medieval poetics and foreground questions of literary and cultural import. Figuring the Feminine argues that the bodies of women are crucial to the working out of such questions as the unsettling shift from orality to literacy, textual instability, cultural dissonance, and the resistance to cultural and religious hegemony.

Subverting the Hortus Conclusus

The Brunners at Greys Court, Oxfordshire

This dissertation examines the later twenthieth-century history of Greys Court garden in Oxfordshire, a property owned by Sir Felix and Lady Brunner. Unlike Sissinghurst, Greys Court was not donated to the National Trust as a complete and finished design. Instead the garden continued to develop under Lady Brunner up to the end of the last decade of the twentieth century. Close examination of the historical context reveals how Greys Court reflects both horticultural and cultural aspects of the late twentieth-century. This is examined in detail with the tower, kitchen, rose and cherry gardens.

Embroidered Stories

Interpreting Women's Domestic Needlework from the Italian Diaspora

For Italian immigrants and their descendants, needlework represents a marker of identity, a cultural touchstone as powerful as pasta and Neapolitan music. Out of the artifacts of their memory and imagination, Italian immigrants and their descendants used embroidering, sewing, knitting, and crocheting to help define who they were and who they have become. This book is an interdisciplinary collection of creative work by authors of Italian origin and academic essays. The creative works from thirty-seven contributors include memoir, poetry, and visual arts while the collection as a whole explores a multitude of experiences about and approaches to needlework and immigration from a transnational perspective, spanning the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. At the center of the book, over thirty illustrations represent Italian immigrant women’s needlework. The text reveals the many processes by which a simple object, or even the memory of that object, becomes something else through literary, visual, performance, ethnographic, or critical reimagining. While primarily concerned with interpretations of needlework rather than the needlework itself, the editors and contributors to Embroidered Stories remain mindful of its history and its associated cultural values, which Italian immigrants brought with them to the United States, Canada, Australia, and Argentina and passed on to their descendants.
