Between 1953 and 1980 the Triumph competitions department produced more than 150 'works' competition cars for race and rally. These included TR2, TR3 and TR3A, the TR3S, TRS and Conrero race cars, Herald and Vitesse, TR4, 2000, Spitfire and GT6R, 2.5 PI, Dolomite and Sprint, TR7 and TR7 V8. In addition they prepared Standard Eight, Ten, Pennant, and Phase III Vanguard for competition. Viewed overall, what stands out as the remarkable feature of the work of the department was that they achieved such a degree of success with relatively ordinary production cars, from 803cc saloons upwards. Author Graham Robson was manager of the Standard-Triumph competitions department in the early 1960s and himself supervised the development and management of the works TR4s, Spitfires and 2000s. Here he provides information on each and every one of the works cars of the whole 1953-80 period, with details of their specifications, entries, drivers and careers, accompanied in nearly all cases by archive photographs. In addition there is specially commissioned colour photography of important surviving examples.

In between he produced competition versions of the Austin-Healey 100 and 100S, the 100-6 and the gloriously successful 3000, a brutal and wayward machine that won countless international rallies in the 1960s in the hands of great drivers like Pat Moss, Timo Makinen, Rauno Aaltonen and Paddy Hopkirk, to name but a few. The book covers the career of each of the works cars individually: entries, drivers and results, with nearly all cars illustrated.

The Triumph Motor Company is known around the world for its iconic sports cars. The hugely popular TR series, Spitfires, and GT-6s represent the quintessential British sports car; rugged good looks were combined with performance and economy at a price everyone could afford. These sports cars are always in demand and prized by British car collectors, racers, and open-air motoring enthusiasts. Triumph understood the connection between competition success and sales success and was able to parlay rally and road racing wins into the best-selling sports cars in the world, particularly in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. The Works competition cars notched victories at Le Mans, Sebring, the Monte Carlo rally, and many others and inspired privateers to take their cars to the track. Every model came from a bloodline of racing. Triumph historian G. William Krause reviews every model in the sports car lineup. He covers the history, design evolution, and performance specifications from the first sports cars in the 1930s through the final cars built in 1981. Throughout Triumph's history a number of pivotal moments could have significantly changed the company's fortunes. This book also looks at the "what if" cars that never made it into production, including photos. Although they have not been built for more than three decades, their mark on sports car history is undeniable. Whether you're a fan of the spartan brutes of the 1950s or the refined comfort and performance of the last TRs, you will find the backstory of your favorites here. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}

Sensations of Art-making: Triumphs, Torments and Risk-taking

Sensations of Art-making: Triumphs, Torments and Risk-taking is an exhibition curated by Purnima Ruanglertbutr that documents the collection of works by professional artist-teachers, who are graduates of Melbourne University’s Master of Teaching (Secondary Art) program. The works in this show demand attention by illustrating with sensitivity the triumphs, torments and risk-taking inherent to professional artistic practice. Each of these artists is treading the difficult pathway of moving into the world of teaching while retaining their artist identity. For some, this transition into the classroom is still to come. For others they are one, two or even three years into lesson planning, staff meetings, sports days and report writing. Theirs is the reality of conflict between their art production and being a teacher - two seemingly incompatible worlds. Through participation in this exhibition, they are beginning to fashion a mechanism for keeping alive their passion for art, while also nurturing a career teaching art to the next generation. This exhibition catalogue documents the work of early-career visual art educators and insightful commentaries by the artist teachers themselves - these are artworks produced during those critical first years after teacher training. Some exhibits explicitly address the role of art making within the teaching process. Others purposefully avoid issues to do with the classroom by illustrating the artists’ ongoing development of a private professional practice. Either way, these are critical pieces of information in the elusive phenomenon of the ‘artist-teacher’.

Grace Triumphs over Law - The Scripture that Changed My Life is the story of one man’s journey from living under the law to living under grace, from condemnation to salvation, and from darkness to light. While studying the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit brought clear understanding of the falsehood of his religion and the real truths found in God’s Holy Word. We will examine hundreds of scriptural references and quotations to uncover the distinction between the old and new covenants (law and grace), demonstrating the promises and righteousness now available to all Christians through Jesus Christ our Lord. Examples from the law and its rituals are examined, explained, and shown to be predecessors to the new covenant of love, grace, and mercy. You will be carried along this journey with him as we explore how good and gracious our God truly is, as demonstrated by the life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and teachings of God the Son. God’s free gift of Christ’s completed work has opened to us a better covenant with better promises, and the gift of the Holy Spirit to all who believe. This is a handbook and study guide, for old and new Christians alike, concentrating on the new life found in Jesus, through His eternal sacrifice, which brought about the wonders of the new covenant between God and His saints.

John Clare's Romanticism

Author: Adam White

Publisher: Springer

ISBN:

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 332

View: 288

This book offers a major reassessment of John Clare’s poetry and his position in the Romantic canon. Alert to Clare’s knowledge of the work of his Romantic contemporaries and near contemporaries, it puts forward the first extended series of comparisons of Clare’s poetry with texts we now think of as defining the period – in particular poems by Robert Burns, William Wordsworth, Lord Byron, and John Keats. It makes fully evident Clare’s original contribution to the aesthetic culture of the age by analysing how he explores a wide range of concerns and preoccupations which are central to, and especially privileged in, Romantic-period poetics, including ‘fancy’, the sublime, childhood, ruins, joy, ‘poesy’, and a love lyric marked by a peculiar self-consciousness about sincere expression. At the heart of this book is the claim that the hitherto under-scrutinised subjective stances, transcendent modes, and abstract qualities of Clare’s lyric poetry situate him firmly within, and as fundamentally part of, Romanticism, at the same time as his writing constitutes a distinctive contribution to one of the most fascinating eras of English literature.

One of the few authors from the ranks of the nobility during the first half of the sixteenth century, Henry Parker, Lord Morley (c.1481-1556) is an undeservedly neglected figure, whose rehabilitation this volume sets out to accomplish. Morley was the first Tudor writer to render Petrarch's Trionfi into English verse, he set about imitating the "Italian Ryme called Soneto", and he translated Plutarchian Lives into English decades before any other writer attempted to do so. Indeed his career forms a context against which to read the accomplishments of the much better known Henrician writers Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Earl of Surrey. He presented his translations each year as New Year's gifts to those he wished to please, individuals as diverse as Henry VIII himself, the King's daughter Mary, and Thomas Cromwell. To Mary he wrote in praise of orthodoxy whilst to Henry and Cromwell he condemned the pope in no uncertain terms. When Parker's own daughter, the widow of George Boleyn, Lord Rochford was beheaded as an accomplice to Catherine Howard, he responded by translating Boccaccio's De claris mulieribus and suggesting this text stand as a model for those ladies at Court whose behaviour was less than exemplary. As these essays show, Morley was a kind of mirror of the ways in which the Tudor nobility functioned in a world wracked by faction and discord. Triumphs of English is a deeply interdisciplinary collection and has contributions by leading historians, cultural critics and literary scholars: David Starkey, James P.Carley, Julia Boffey, A.S.G.Edwards, K.R.Bartlett, Richard Rex, Jeremy Maule, David R. Carlson, James Simpson, Marie Axton, Suzanne Woods, and Richard Axton. It also includes editions of hitherto unpublished writings by Morley, one of which has long been lost. The result is a richly interconnected whole, each essay discrete in itself, but also reflecting and illuminating the others.

This is the first comprehensive study of the revival and appropriation of the Roman triumph from the 1580s to the 1650s. English versions of the triumph included ceremonial re-enactments, poetic or pictorial representations, and stage performances. As well as many non-canonical writers, Spenser, Marlowe, Shakespeare, Marvell, and Milton all produced versions. The book includes an original survey of ancient literary models and the work of humanist antiquarians, and shows how all its texts are implicated in contemporary political conflicts and discourses.
