Book Description :

The way a man thinks about his day-to-day living and the needs of his household reveals a great deal about his ambitions, his idea of himself, and his role in the community. And his house or castle offers many clues to his habits as well as those of the members of his household. This intriguing book explores the evolution of country house plans throughout Britain and Ireland, from medieval times to the eighteenth century. With photographs and detailed architectural plans of each house under discussion, the book presents a whole range of new insights into how these homes were designed and what their varied designs tell us about the lives of their residents. Starting with fortified medieval tower houses, the book traces patterns that developed and sometimes repeated in country house design over the centuries. It discusses who slept in the bedchambers, where food was prepared, how rooms were arranged for official and private activities, what towers signified, and more. Groundbreaking in its depth, the volume offers a rare tour of country houses for scholar and general reader alike.

Book Description :

"Ranging from Kentchurch Court, a former fortified medieval manor house that has been the seat of the Scudamore family for nearly 1,000 years to a delightful Strawberry Hill-style Gothic house in rural Cornwall to a ducal palace (Badminton) to stately Goodwood House, England's greatest sporting estate, this beautifully illustrated book showcases ten outstanding British country houses--all still in the hands of descendants of the original owners. James Peill, co-author of Vendome's The Irish Country House and curator of Goodwood House, recounts the ups and downs of such deep-rooted clans as the Cracrofts, landowners in Lincolnshire since the twelfth century, whose late-eighteenth-century Hackthorn Hall is a perfect example of the kind of house Jane Austen describes in her novels (indeed, she appears on their family tree), as well as the relatively newly arrived Biddulphs, who constructed Rodmarton, an Arts & Crafts masterpiece, in the first decades of the last century. James Fennell, the photographer of this volume and its Scottish and Irish companions, has once again provided a wealth of gardens, charming interiors, bygone sporting trophies, fine art collections, and fanciful family memorabilia, making The English Country House a delicious treat for Anglophiles and lovers of old houses.

Book Description :

This monograph provides an insight into English country house fiction by twentieth and twenty-first century authors, with a focus on the works of E.M. Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Iris Murdoch, Alan Hollinghurst, and Sarah Waters. The country house is explored within the wider social and cultural contexts of the period, including contemporary architectural development. The variety of literary depictions of the country house reflects the physical diversification of buildings which can be classified as such, from smaller variants to formerly grand residences on the brink of physical collapse. Within the scope of contemporary fiction, architecture and poetics of space, the country house, given its uniquely integrating and exceptionally evocative qualities, accentuates different conceptions of dwelling. Consequently, literary portrayals of the country house can be seen as both prefiguring and reflecting the contemporary practice of living.

- Each of the 12 houses will be featured in national and international press to announce the book- In the UK, the media includes Tatler, House & Garden, Country Life, The English Home, and Telegraph Luxury Online- In the US, the media includes Town & Country, Architectural Digest Online, The AD Aesthete Podcast, Air Mail, and DeparturesThis book is a sumptuously produced journey around 12 privately-owned country houses, asking what it is like to live in such places today. What role do they play in the 21st century? For many years after the Second World War, the country house was struggling. Now a new generation of young owners, often with children, has taken over. They're finding innovative ways to live in these ancient, fragile and poetic places. While they treasure the history and beauty of the houses, they're also adapting and enhancing them for a modern era. Old Homes, New Life is a behind-the-scenes account of today's aristocracy, as they reinvent the country house way of life. Each family does this in its own way, maintaining the tradition of individualism, even eccentricity, which is so much associated with country houses. Dylan Thomas's superb yet intimate photographs capture both the inhabitants of these houses and the spaces they occupy - from State dining to family kitchen, walled garden to attic. This feast for the eyes is accompanied by an equally mouth-watering text by Clive Aslet, based on interviews with family members and his long experience of the subject through his years as editor of Country Life. The result is an exclusive tour of a dozen spectacular homes.

Book Description :

This anthology brings together some of the finest writing in English on the subject of the English country house, a topic currently enjoying a renascence of academic and general interest. The houses represented are for the most part fictional, and the extracts illustrate the various ways in which such descriptions function as part of the system of meanings in a novel, play, or poem. People shape their houses and their houses shape them. Houses may be seen as architectural metaphors of their owners. The extracts of this anthology demonstrate that an author's descriptions of a country houses features make it a metonym of its owners or occupiers. In a vast number of instances houses are depicted (even before the owner is described) in such a way as to give insights into, or clues to, his or her social status, and ethical and moral tastes. The various glimpses that the extracts provide of the country house its architecture, its garden, the well-being of its servants and tenants, the hospitality (or lack of it) that its guests experience, the extent of the paternalism in the running of the estate all in some way reflect the character of the owners. The huge ostentatious villa of Popes Timon reflects the vulgar pretension of its owner, and the noble house and demesne of Beaumanoir is a home befitting the cultured and hospitable Lord Henry Sydney in Disraeli's Coningsby. Moreover, by implication the house itself may well become a representative example of others of its kind: so we are led to believe that Jane Austens Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice with its tasteful elegance is a type of many others such; and that (later) there are many houses throughout England like Waughs Brideshead whose glory has vanished after the second World War. The Introduction provides some historical and cultural context for the institution of the country house and traces some of the themes and topics that have persisted or been transformed during the long period (from the sixteenth century to the twentieth) of its representation in English literature. Each extract has a short introduction that provides its context, indicates salient details, and in doing so makes clear why it has been included. With the exception of Spenser, texts are in modern spelling and specific sources are listed separately at the end of the book.

Book Description :

Sir Shane Leslie once wrote that ?Country life was entirely organized to give nobility and gentry and demi-gentry a good time.?0Throughout Ireland and Britain the country house was a centre of hospitality, entertainment and leisure, with the hosting of house parties, soirees and balls. Pastimes included photography, painting, astronomy and taxidermy. Outdoors the parkland was used for a variety of sporting activities including archery, cricket, croquet and shooting, as well as local sports events, and beyond the demesne activities included hunting, horse racing and yachting. In Ireland demesne lands were developed as golf courses and estates offered land to the nationalist-dominated Gaelic Athletic Association for football and hurling.0This volume provides fresh and original insights into how leisure and sport underpinned the social hierarchy of country houses and their local communities in Ireland and Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Book Description :

In recent years, the role of women in country houses and estates across Ireland and the UK has been the focus of greater attention. Chatelaines, mothers, wives, daughters, widows, sisters, housekeepers, and maids were ever-present figures in the microcosm of the country house. New research has begun to reveal the extent of their involvement in managing households and estates, influencing design, adopting public roles, championing good causes, as well as raising families and committing their thoughts to paper in literary expression. This volume of essays, many of which draw on hitherto unseen family archives, will bring new perspectives to our understanding of the country house as a place where many women often held powerful roles. Contributors include: Amy Boyinton (U Cambridge), Kerry Bristol (U Leeds), Philip Bull (La Trobe U, Melbourne), Anne Casement (ind.), Jonathan Cherry (Maynooth U), Arlene Crampsie (Maynooth U), Caroline Dakers (Central St Martins), William Fraher (U Limerick), Judith Hill (Trinity College Dublin), Edmund Joyce (Carlow IT ), Ruth Larsen (U Derby), Anna Pilz (University College Cork), Lowri Ann Rees (Bangor U), Ciar���¡n Reilly (Maynooth U), Regina Sexton (University College Cork), Brendan Twomey (Trinity College Dublin), and Fiona White (Galway-Mayo IT).
