Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 48

Soul’s joy, bend not those morning stars from me, Where virtue is made strong by beauty’s might, Where love is chasteness, pain doth learn delight, And humbleness grows one with majesty. Whatever may ensue, O let me be Co-partner of the riches of...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 47

What, have I thus betrayed my liberty? Can those black beams such burning marks engrave In my free side? Or am I born a slave, Whose neck becomes such yoke of tyranny? Or want I sense to feel my misery? Or sprite, disdain of such disdain to have, Who...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 46

I cursed thee oft; I pity now thy case, Blind-hitting boy, since she that thee and me Rules with a beck, so tyrannizeth thee, That thou must want or food or dwelling place, For she protests to banish thee her face. Her face? O Love, a rogue thou...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 45

Stella oft sees the very face of woe Painted in my beclouded stormy face, But cannot skill to pity my disgrace, Not though thereof the cause herself she know; Yet hearing late a fable, which did show Of lovers never known a grievous case, Pity thereof...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 44

My words, I know, do well set forth my mind; My mind bemoans his sense of inward smart; Such smart may pity claim of any heart, Her heart (sweet heart) is of no tiger’s kind: And yet she hears, yet I no pity find; But more I cry, less grace she doth...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 43

Fair eyes, sweet lips, dear heart, that foolish I Could hope by Cupid’s help on you to prey; Since to himself he doth your gifts apply, As his main force, choice sport, and easeful stay. For when he will see who dare him gainsay, Then with those eyes...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 42

O eyes, which do the spheres of beauty move, Whose beams be joys, whose joys all virtues be, Who, while they make Love conquer, conquer Love, The schools where Venus hath learned chastity; O eyes, whose humble looks most glorious prove Only loved tyrants,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 41

Having this day my horse, my hand, my lance, Guided so well, that I obtained the prize, Both by the judgment of the English eyes And of some sent from that sweet enemy, France; Horsemen my skill in horsemanship advance, Town-folks my strength;  a daintier...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 40

As good to write, as for to lie and groan, O Stella dear, how much thy power hath wrought, That hast my mind, none of the basest, brought, My still-kept course, while others sleep, to moan. Alas, if from the height of Virtue’s throne Thou canst...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 39

Come Sleep, O Sleep, the certain knot of peace, The baiting place of wit, the balm of woe, The poor man’s wealth, the prisoner’s release, The indifferent judge between the high and low; With shield of proof shield me from out the press Of...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 38

This night, while sleep begins with heavy wings To hatch mine eyes, and that unbitted thought Doth fall to stray, and my chief powers are brought To leave the scepter of all subject things, The first that straight my fancy’s error brings Unto my...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 37

My mouth doth water, and my breast doth swell, My tongue doth itch, my thoughts in labor be; Listen then, lordings, with good ear to me, For of my life I must a riddle tell. Towards Aurora’s court a nymph doth dwell, Rich in all beauties which man’s...

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 26

Though dusty wits dare scorn astrology, And, fools, can think those lamps of purest light, Whose numbers, ways, greatness, eternity, Promising wonders, wonder do invite, To have for no cause birthright in the sky, But for to spangle the black weeds of...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 25

The wisest scholar of the wight most wise, By Phoebus’ doom, with sugared sentence says, That virtue, if it once met with our eyes, Strange flames of love it in our souls would raise; But for that man with pain his truth descries, While he each...

Rich fools there be, whose base and filthy heart Lies hatching still the goods wherein they flow, And damning their own selves to Tantal’s smart, Wealth breeding want, more blest, more wretched grow. Yet to those fools heaven such wit doth impart, As...

In highest way of heaven the Sun did ride, Progressing then from fair twins’ golden place: Having no scarf of clouds before his face, But shining forth of heat in his chief pride, When some fair ladies, by hard promise tied, On horseback met him...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 21

Your words, my friend, right healthful caustics, blame My young mind marred, whom love doth windlass so That mine own writings like bad servants show, My wits, quick in vain thoughts, in virtue lame; That Plato I read for nought, but if he tame Such coltish...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 19

On Cupid’s bow how are my heartstrings bent, That see my wrack, and yet embrace the same! When most I glory, then I feel most shame: I willing run, yet while I run, repent. My best wits still their own disgrace invent; My very ink turns straight...

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.
