“... left ‘the myth of savagery intact’. The appreciation of black art was not accompanied by a ‘radical revision of Western attitudes to blacks’. Just how true this is has been demonstrated by SallyPrice in Primitive Art in Civilised Places, which examines the assumptions behind the collecting and display of such art in the Western world: the idea that it is supposed to ‘speak directly’ to ...”
“... the Twelfth fortnight’. The Protestants left behind to march, and Catholics left behind to object to their marches, were mostly those who couldn’t afford Corfu. In The Crack: A Belfast Year 1 Sally Belfrage notes: ‘A look at the class-composition’ of the Twelfth procession was ‘to see overwhelmingly the poor, albeit with the gentry to the fore, and it ill becomes middle-class snobs to ...”
“... Next comes the one on sex – how many men you’ve had, what did you do with or to whom. And all to see if you are worthy of a fuck. Men who’d buy endless rounds when with the boys mentally price us up as two lagers or six gins – turn surly if they’ve got it wrong. (A whole distillery would be too low a price for some of them, and yet if we are simply generous we’re labelled ‘cheap ...”
“... educational corporation in the US. The fat years for the industry started with the deregulation of higher education under George W. Bush, who appointed the Apollo Group’s chief Washington lobbyist, Sally Stroup, as assistant secretary for post-secondary education. But the boom proper began in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, which produced huge numbers of unemployed, unqualified people ...”
“... and conservative, in its taste for art, books and botanical display – the Shakespeare Garden is a main attraction. Under its last two directors, it has begun to collect modern British writers. The price paid by the Huntington for Isherwood has not been divulged. A year ago, the sum floating around in (uninformed) coffee-room gossip was a million dollars. Some newspapers in Britain reported ...”
“... whose pay cheques bounced. They went on strike despite a ban on strikes decreed last year by President Mugabe, in the wake of a second round of urban riots caused first by food and then by fuel price hikes, themselves the result of a 60 per cent devaluation of the Zim dollar (which, having started life at two to the US dollar, is now 67 to the US dollar). Mugabe wasn’t bothered by the council ...”
“... businessman as any bond trader at Goldman Sachs – with the rather important difference that he goes out and grows what he thinks the market wants. He’s clearly done well at it: he and his wife, Sally, live well and travel a lot and he proudly tells me how much he’s exported in the last year, earning precious foreign exchange while providing a living for hundreds of farmworkers and their ...”
“... of her family scenes are worthy of Christina Stead. It’s when pride’s progression to the inevitable fall adheres most strictly to Roman Catholic equations concerning purgatory, punishment and the price of knowledge that O’Connor comes into the arbitrary violence that is the severest limitation of her work. Violence can result from purely aesthetic considerations, as it does in ‘Greenleaf’, an ...”
“... by being seen. (My minder from the printer’s headquarters was also a reverend.) The employees who dealt with New York asked me what I was doing on the morning of 9/11. I slept late that morning. ‘Sally over there,’ one of them said, ‘was on the phone with McGraw-Hill.’ One of my tasks before I quit to go into magazines was to rewrite Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet for editions that presented ...”
“... horror: to Oliver Twist, fed on the scraps that the Sowerberrys’ dog refused; to David Copperfield, beaten by the fiendish Murdstones; to the little half-starved Marchioness, kept in a dungeon by Sally Brass; to the Nicklebys and Nell, driven out into the harsh world. Indeed, orphans are so plentiful in the works of Dickens that it is quite a surprise to find a child with its full complement of ...”
“... European colonialism. Brent Nongbri’s Before Religion (2013), in particular, argued that the mapping out of the religions of the world went hand in hand with imperial conquest. As the classicist Sally Humphreys has argued for many years, the Greeks did not think of themselves as possessing a ‘religion’. They acknowledged many gods, of many different kinds: from Olympian deities through river ...”
“... Chink face’, and called her ‘Royal Chink Piggie’, although as a general’s daughter she was at least of ‘our class’.) Souline withdrew from their sexual relationship in 1938 and, despite Sally Cline’s insistence in her new biography of Hall that ‘de-emphasising genital lovemaking did not render their relationship asexual’ and that ‘we must not be beguiled by the standard ...”
“... couldn’t help thinking, would have difficulty in surviving amid those flat, meagre streets, on that sandy soil, under that high sky); for her it was just dead. ‘You know: dead!’ Her name was Sally, It said so on a plastic name-badge pinned to her blouse, the top button of which was undone, revealing not her breasts, but the childish, bony, sexless hollow between them. She had a starveling face ...”
“... and parade, done county by county in a reliable and well-printed text, with explanations and introductions plainly addressed to layman and expert alike, in a handy functional format, at reasonable price. It is already much used by students and it is already prompting and informing, in universities as far apart as Hull and Santa Barbara, the computerised analysis which will be the basis of the next ...”
“... is that it was not so easy, at least if you were interested in results. Joshua Ward (1685-1761) was widely regarded as a quack, and drawn as such by Hogarth, along with the Epsom bone-setter Sally Mapp, in The Company of Undertakers. But he put back George II’s dislocated thumb when the licensed physicians were all telling the King he had gout and was just going to have to put up with it ...”
