Foreigner Adrian Gill (a Scot) goes in search of the essence of England and the English The English are naturally, congenitally, collectively and singularly, livid much of the time. In between the incoherent bellowing of the terraces and the pursed, rigid eye-rolling of the commuter carriage, they reach the end of their tethers and the thin end of their wedges. They're incensed, incandescent, splenetic, prickly, touchy and fractious. They sit apart on their half of a damply disappointing little island, nursing and picking at their irritations. Perhaps aware that they're living on top of a keg of fulminating fury, the English have, throughout their history, come up with hundreds of ingenious and bizarre ways to diffuse anger or transform it into something benign. Good manners and queues, roundabouts and garden sheds, and almost every game ever invented from tennis to bridge. They've built things, discovered stuff, made puddings, written hymns and novels, and for people who don't like to talk much, they have come up with the most minutely nuanced and replete language ever spoken - just so there'll be no misunderstandings. In this hugely witty, personal and readable book, A.A. Gill looks anger and the English straight in the eye.

Memory hangs over this moving collection of poems like a veil of wistful longing. All may be ephemeral – love, nature, life itself – but memory lives on. In the title poem, “No Angry Islands,” Jay Cohen captures the lost moment of two lovers, separated by time and space. Their bond is now frozen in the elements of nature: “Only the wind to weep of former days./Only the dawn to take us back again.” Cohen’s unique perspective as both a poet and a scientist overlays his reflections on the physical world and the human soul. He explores the lasting impact of celebrated men such as Robert Frost, Louis Pasteur, and Itzak Perlman. But what of the ordinary man? He, too, has a chance for immortality, through his words and deeds. Cohen’s deep, lyrical voice echoes through this book as he, indeed, lives on through his poems, honoring the mundane and the mighty, marveling at the idiosyncrasies of nature and man. Ten years after his death, his insights remain as relevant and palpable as ever.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 1,7, Free University of Berlin (Fachbereich Englisch), course: Introduction to Cultural Studies II , language: English, abstract: 1 Introduction Since Margaret Thatcher’s radical influence on the economic policy of the United Kingdom (UK) during the 1980s, many state-owned industries, but also municipal utilities have been deregularised and privatised in order to diminish the government’s influence on economy. Today, the UK is a leading trading power and one of the most important financial centres worldwide. Moreover, the rate of unemployment in the UK is lower than in many other European countries. Although the British government has reduced its efforts to advance the growth of the so-called Welfare State since the 1980s, the present government under Tony Blair still follows most of the Welfare State’s main ideas to ensure health, education, employment and social security for its citizens. However, the modern UK still has to face a couple of problems which endanger a harmonious social life, although the British people live in one of the most prosperous societies in the world. Hooliganism, nationalism, vandalism and excessive alcohol misuse are certainly the most prominent national problems, which have already become part of the everyday life in some British communities. Since all these problems are certain forms of anti-social behaviour, which is usually based on a lack of self-respect or respect for others, Tony Blair presented his long-awaited respect agenda on the 10th of January this year. He introduced his Respect Action Plan, which is about his political initiative to tackle the causes of anti-social behaviour, “which lie in families, in the classroom and in communities.” (Respect Task Force 2006: 1). Nevertheless, Blair’s approach to ‘eradicate’ anti-social behaviour from society is rather controversial. Many critics claim that Blair’s concept tackles the wrong causes for the loss of respect and therefore, they question the success of Blair’s respect campaign. In order to get a little more insight into the topic of anti-social behaviour and Blair’s concept to re-establish respect in the UK, this essay will first try to work out how come that the respect has gone and morals have been brutalised in parts of the British society. Then, Tony Blair’s Respect Action Plan to fight anti-social behaviour will be highlighted in more detail by pointing out its major aims and aspects, and finally, it will be considered whether Blair’s concept can be a success or is condemned to fail.
