Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 108

When Sorrow, using mine own fire’s might, Melts down his lead into my boiling breast, Through that dark furnace to my heart oppressed There shines a joy from thee, my only light; But soon as thought of thee breeds my delight, And my young soul flutters...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 107

Stella, since thou so right a princess art Of all the powers which life bestows on me, That ere by them aught undertaken be They first resort unto that sovereign part; Sweet, for a while give respite to my heart, Which pants as though it still should...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 106

O absent presence, Stella is not here; False flattering hope, that with so fair a face Bare me in hand, that in this orphan place, Stella, I say my Stella, should appear: What say’st thou now? Where is that dainty cheer Thou told’st mine...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 105

Unhappy sight, and hath she vanished by, So near, in so good time, so free a place? Dead glass, dost thou thy object so embrace As what my heart still sees, thou canst not spy? I swear by her I love and lack, that I Was not in fault, who bent...

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...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 103

O happy Thames, that didst my Stella bear! I saw thyself, with many a smiling line Upon thy cheerful face, joy’s livery wear, While those fair planets on thy streams did shine. The boat for joy could not to dance forbear, While wanton winds, with...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 1

Where be those roses gone, which sweetened so our eyes? Where those red cheeks, which oft with fair increase did frame The height of honour in the kindly badge of shame? Who hath the crimson weeds stol’n from my morning skies?...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 101

Stella is sick, and in that sickbed lies Sweetness, that breathes and pants as oft as she; And grace, sick too, such fine conclusions tries That sickness brags itself best graced to be. Beauty is sick, but sick in so fair guise That in that...

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...

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 98

Ah bed, the field where joy’s peace some do see, The field where all my thoughts to war be trained, How is thy grace by my strange fortune stained! How thy lee shores by my sighs stormed be! With sweet soft shades thou oft invitest me...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 97

Dian, that fain would cheer her friend the night, Shows her oft at the full her fairest race, Bringing with her those starry nymphs, whose chase From heavenly standing hits each mortal wight. But ah, poor night, in love with Phoebus’...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 96

Thought, with good cause thou lik’st so well the night, Since kind or chance gives both one livery; Both sadly black, both blackly darkened be, Night barred from sun, thou from thy own sun’s light. Silence in...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 95

Yet sighs, dear sighs, indeed true friends you are, That do not leave your least friend at the worst; But as you with my breast I oft have nursed, So grateful now you wait upon my care. Faint coward joy no longer tarry dare, Seeing hope yield when...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 94

Grief, find the words; for thou hast made my brain So dark with misty vapours, which arise From out thy heavy mould, that inbent eyes Can scarce discern the shape of mine own pain. Do thou then (for thou canst), do thou complain For my poor soul, which...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 93

O fate, O fault, O curse, child of my bliss; What sobs can give words grace my grief to show? What ink is black enough to paint my woe? Through me, wretch me, even Stella vexed is. Yet Truth—if caitiff’s breath may call thee—this...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 92 and Tenth Song

Be your words made, good sir, of Indian ware, That you allow me them by so small rate? Or do you cutted Spartans imitate? Or do you mean my tender ears to spare That to my questions you so total are? When I demand of Phoenix Stella’s state, You...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 91

Stella, while now by honour’s cruel might, I am from you, light of my life, misled, And that fair you, my sun, thus overspread With absence’ veil, I live in sorrow’s night; If this dark place yet show, like candle light Some beauty’s...

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,...

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:

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s={search term or phrase}

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

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s=london

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

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s=Gunpowder%20Plot&exact=on

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.
