Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 88

Out, traitor absence; darest thou counsel me From my dear captainess to run away, Because in brave array here marcheth she That to win me, oft shows a present pay? Is faith so weak? Or is such force in thee? When sun is hid, can stars...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 87

When I was forced from Stella, ever dear, Stella, food of my thoughts, heart of my heart, Stella, whose eyes make all my tempests clear, By iron laws of duty to depart; Alas, I found that she with me did smart, I saw that tears did in her eyes appear;...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 85 and Fourth Song

I see the house; my heart, thyself contain; Beware full sails drown not thy tottering barge, Lest joy, by nature apt sprites to enlarge, Thee to thy wrack beyond thy limits strain; Nor do like lords, whose weak confused brain, Not pointing to...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 84

Highway, since you my chief Parnassus be, And that my muse, to some ears not unsweet, Tempers her words to trampling horse’s feet More oft than to a chamber melody; Now, blessed you, bear onward blessed me To her, where I my heart safeliest shall...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 83 and Third Song

Good brother Philip, I have borne you long; I was content you should in favour creep, While craftily you seemed your cut to keep, As though that soft fair hand did you great wrong. I bare (with envy) yet I bare your song, When in her neck you did love...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 8

Nymph of the garden where all beauties be; Beauties which do in excellency pass His who till death looked in a watery glass, Or hers, whom naked the Trojan boy did see; Sweet garden nymph, which keeps the cherry tree, Whose fruit doth...

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 8

Sweet swelling lip, well may’st thou swell in pride, Since best wits think it wit thee to admire; Nature’s praise, virtue’s stall, Cupid’s cold fire, Whence words, not words but heavenly graces slide; The new Parnassus,...

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 78

O how the pleasant airs of true love be Infected by those vapours which arise From out that noisome gulf, which gaping lies Between the jaws of hellish jealousy: A monster, others’ harm, self-misery, Beauty’s plague, virtue’s scourge,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 77

Those looks, whose beams be joy, whose motion is delight; That face, whose lecture shows what perfect beauty is; That presence, which doth give dark hearts a living light; That grace, which Venus weeps that she herself doth miss; That hand,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 76

She comes, and straight therewith her shining twins do move Their rays to me, who in her tedious absence lay Benighted in cold woe; but now appears my day, The only light of joy, the only warmth of love. She comes, with light and warmth, which like Aurora prove...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 75

Of all the kings that ever here did reign, Edward named Fourth, as first in praise I name; Not for his fair outside, nor well-lined brain, Although less gifts imp feathers oft on fame; Nor that he could, young-wise, wise-valiant, frame...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 74

I never drank of Aganippe well, Nor ever did in shade of Tempe sit; And muses scorn with vulgar brains to dwell; Poor layman I, for sacred rites unfit. Some do I hear of poet’s fury tell, But (God wot) wot not what they mean by it; And this I swear,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 73

Love still a boy, and oft a wanton is, Schooled only by his mother’s tender eye; What wonder then if he his lesson miss, When for so soft a rod dear play he try? And yet my star, because a sugared kiss In sport I sucked,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 72 and Second Song

Desire, though thou my old companion art, And oft so clings to my pure love, that I One from the other scarcely can descry, While each doth blow the fire of my heart; Now from thy fellowship I needs must part; Venus is taught with Dian’s wings to...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 71

Who will in fairest book of Nature know How virtue may best lodged in beauty be, Let him but learn of love to read in thee, Stella, those fair lines which true goodness show. There shall he find all vices’ overthrow, Not by rude force, but sweetest...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 70

My muse may well grudge at my heavenly joy, If still I force her in sad rhymes to creep; She oft hath drunk my tears, now hopes to enjoy Nectar of mirth, since I Jove’s cup do keep. Sonnets be not bound prentice to annoy; Trebles sing high, as...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 69

O joy, too high for my low style to show! O bliss, fit for a nobler state than me! Envy, put out thine eyes, lest thou do see What oceans of delight in me do flow! My friend, that oft saw through all masks my woe, Come, come, and let me pour myself on...

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.
