As Charlotte was saying, we had a lovely trip to Foyles this morning (cut short by the horrible cold I’ve suddenly caught) where I spent far more money than I should have done but came out very happy! I bought Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Hard Times by Charles Dickens :)

Lauren and I went on a trip into town today, to go to Foyles on Charring Cross Road. We did initially plan to go to two other book shops as well, but after spending the majority of our morning in Foyles (it’s all new and pretty;easy to spend hours in - especially with a café on the top floor) we decided against it. So this is what I got from Foyles today (they have an amazing music section, pretty much a whole floor): 2 A4 manuscript books and the sheet music for Debussy’s Deux Arabesques. It was so cheap, and also quite a lot of the time, difficult to find nice editions of music and good quality sheet music, I am defintely going there for the things I need for music again.

MYTHOLOGY MEME  |  [1/9] GREEK GODS & GODDESSES » THE FURIES ( ERINYES )

The Furies, otherwise known as the Erinyes were the cruel underworld goddesses of vengeance and retribution. The three sisters consisted of Alecto (the angry), Megara (the grudging), and Tisiphone (the avenging) and were wards of the god Hades where they dwelled in the underworld. In some versions they are said to have been created by the blood of the titan Uranus while other versions praise them as daughter of the goddess Nyx, the goddess of the night. The sisters served as persecutors against crimes such as murder (especially within one’s own family), disrespect, perjury, and injustice and they drew great joy from the punishment which they gave to others. They were said to be of a ghastly and frightful sight, with poisonous blood in their veins, serpents snaking through their hair and bat-like wings The wrath of the Furies would follow any who would dare to commit crimes, and in the old days, people held this truth against their conscience as the furies would punish their victims by driving them into an unrelenting insanity.

HISTORY MEME - six women: georgiana cavendish, duchess of devonshire [5/6]

Born Georgiana Spencer in 1757, the eventual Duchess of Devonshire was one of the most influential socialites of her day. She married the Duke of Devonshire at age 17, and despite suffering a number of miscarriages, the couple eventually had three children together. The couple also lived for 25 years in a triad with Lady Elizabeth Foster, who was Georgiana’s best friend and who eventually married the Duke. Georgiana was an active political campaigner and worked closely with the Whig party, actively campaigning and canvassing in the 1784 General Election for Charles James Fox, who was a distant cousin. Her campaigning brought some derision from her contemporaries, who accused her of trading kisses for votes. She also wrote poetry and one novel, The Sylph, which was printed anonymously in 1779. During her lifetime and afterwards, Georgiana was famous not only for her style, marital arrangements, affairs, and beauty, but also for her love of gambling, which led her to amass immense debts. Despite the wealth of both the Spencer and Cavendish families, Georgiana was reported to have died severely in debt, by one estimate owing today’s equivalent of  £3,720,000. She died in 1806, at the age of 48. (x)
