As You Like It (Northern Broadsides) @ Leeds Playhouse

‘Time travels in diverse paces with diverse persons’, announced Rosalind (EM Williams), pausing pointedly on the word ‘diverse’. The emphasis on diversity in relation to time aligned with designer E. M. Parry’s interest in the programme note...

As You Like It (CtrlAltRepeat) @ YouTube

‘I like this place / And willingly could waste my time in it.’ Celia’s line in As You Like It rings interestingly in the middle of a pandemic, a momentary suggestion of peace and satisfaction in the idea of wasting time. Time is a luxury,...

on “voluntary exile”

Here’s what I’m thinking about, on my first day of virtual classes, seeing my students and yet not seeing them – or only seeing them, I suppose, when that word “seeing” usually does so much synecdochic work. There’s...

As You Like It (RSC) @ Theatre Royal, Nottingham

The Bardathon made his RSC stage debut last night, in the small but pivotal role of ‘Tree Covered In Post-It Notes’. Brought on after the interval of As You Like It, this hapless audience member’s role was to stand in a coat festooned...

As You Like It @ Shakespeare’s Globe

Everyone who complained about Michelle Terry ‘casting herself’ as Hamlet in the Globe ensemble’s other production should be forced to watch the joyful (and, imho, superior) As You Like It, and use the same logic to account for the Globe’s...

The Silly Side of Shakespeare

By Mya Gosling Shakespeare is hilarious: his comedies are funny and his tragedies are even funnier. Well… at least that’s the mindset I have whenever I sit down to draw a new comic poking fun at the Sweet Swan of Avon and his plays. I’ve...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 104 and Eleventh Song

Envious wits, what hath been mine offence, That with such poisonous care my looks you mark, That to each word, nay, sigh, of mine you hark, As grudging me my sorrow’s eloquence? Ah, is it not enough that I am thence, Thence, so far thence, that...

Sibling rivalries: As You Like It

My brother gripped my arms and twisted me to the ground. On my way down, I crashed into and through set of doors. That’s when our father came down. “What are you guys doing down here?” We caught our breaths. We wiped sweat from our brows....

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 1

O tears, no tears, but rain from beauty’s skies, Making those lilies and those roses grow, Which aye most fair, now more than most fair show, While graceful pity beauty beautifies: O honeyed sighs, which from that breast do rise, Whose pants do...

Into the 18th Century: Shakespeare in Performance

Once Shakespeare’s works had been preserved and made available performers, writers and directors were free to interpret them however they wanted, it is surprising how quickly this happened! There are many who would think very carefully before...

Notes on Post Tags Search

By default, this searches for any categories containing your search term: eg, Tudor will also find Tudors, Tudor History, etc. Check the 'exact' box to restrict searching to categories exactly matching your search. All searches are case-insensitive.

This is a search for tags/categories assigned to blog posts by their authors. The terminology used for post tags varies across different blog platforms, but WordPress tags and categories, Blogspot labels, and Tumblr tags are all included.

This search feature has a number of purposes:

1. to give site users improved access to the content EMC has been aggregating since August 2012, so they can look for bloggers posting on topics they're interested in, explore what's happening in the early modern blogosphere, and so on.

2. to facilitate and encourage the proactive use of post categories/tags by groups of bloggers with shared interests. All searches can be bookmarked for reference, making it possible to create useful resources of blogging about specific news, topics, conferences, etc, in a similar fashion to Twitter hashtags. Bloggers could agree on a shared tag for posts, or an event organiser could announce one in advance, as is often done with Twitter hashtags.

Caveats and Work in Progress

This does not search post content, and it will not find any informal keywords/hashtags within the body of posts.

If EMC doesn't find any <category> tags for a post in the RSS feed it is classified as uncategorized. These and any <category> 'uncategorized' from the feed are omitted from search results. (It should always be borne in mind that some bloggers never use any kind of category or tag at all.)

This will not be a 'real time' search, although EMC updates content every few hours so it's never very far behind events.

The search is at present quite basic and limited. I plan to add a number of more sophisticated features in the future including the ability to filter by blog tags and by dates. I may also introduce RSS feeds for search queries at some point.

Constructing Search Query URLs

If you'd like to use an event tag, it's possible to work out in advance what the URL will be, without needing to visit EMC and run the search manually (though you might be advised to check it works!). But you'll need to use URL encoding as appropriate for any spaces or punctuation in the tag (so it might be a good idea to avoid them).

This is the basic structure:{search term or phrase}

For example, the URL for a simple search for categories containing London:

The URL for a search for the exact category Gunpowder Plot:

In this more complex URL, %20 is the URL encoding for a space between words and &exact=on adds the exact category requirement.

I'll do my best to ensure that the basic URL construction (searchcat?s=...) is stable and persistent as long as the site is around.
