Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 99

When far spent night persuades each mortal eye, To whom nor art nor nature granteth light, To lay his then mark-wanting shafts of sight, Closed with their quivers, in sleep’s armoury; With windows ope then most my mind doth...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 9

Stella, think not that I by verse seek fame, Who seek, who hope, who love, who live but thee; Thine eyes my pride, thy lips mine history; If thou praise not, all other praise is shame. Nor so ambitious am I as to frame A nest for my young praise in laurel...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 89

Now that of absence the most irksome night, With darkest shade doth overcome my day; Since Stella’s eyes, wont to give me my day, Leaving my hemisphere, leave me in night; Each day seems long, and longs for long-stayed night; The night as tedious,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 81

O kiss, which dost those ruddy gems impart, Or gems, or fruits of new-found Paradise, Breathing all bliss, and sweetening to the heart, Teaching dumb lips a nobler exercise; O kiss, which souls, even souls, together ties...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 79

Sweet kiss, thy sweets I fain would sweetly indite, Which even of sweetness sweetest sweet’ner art: Pleasing’st consort, where each sense holds a part; Which, coupling doves, guides Venus’ chariot right; Best charge,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 27

Because I oft, in dark abstracted guise Seem most alone in greatest company, With dearth of words, or answers quite awry, To them that would make speech of speech arise, They deem, and of their doom the rumor flies, That poison foul of bubbling pride...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 16

In nature apt to like, when I did see, Beauties, which were of many carats fine, My boiling sprites did thither soon incline, And, Love, I thought that I was full of thee: But finding not those restless flames in me Which others said did make their souls...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 13

Phoebus was judge between Jove, Mars, and Love, Of those three gods, whose arms the fairest were: Jove’s golden shield did eagle sables bear, Whose talons held young Ganymede above: But in vert field Mars bare a golden spear, Which through a bleeding...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 7

When Nature made her chief work, Stella’s eyes, In color black why wrapped she beams so bright? Would she in beamy black, like painter wise, Frame daintiest luster mixed of shades and light? Or did she else that sober hue devise In object best to...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnets 4 and 10 (considered together)

4. Virtue, alas, now let me take some rest; Thou sett’st a bate between my will and wit; If vain Love have my simple soul oppressed, Leave what thou lik’st not, deal not thou with it. Thy scepter use in some old Cato’s breast, Churches or...

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.
