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 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...

Fie, school of Patience, fie! Your lesson is Far, far too long to learn it without book: What, a whole week without one piece of look, And think I should not your large precepts miss? When I might read those letters fair of bliss, Which in her face teach...

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...

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 22

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 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 11

In truth, O Love, with what a boyish kind Thou dost proceed in thy most serious ways: That when the heaven to thee his best displays, Yet of that best thou leav’st the best behind. For, like a child that some fair book doth find, With gilded leaves...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 8

Love, born in Greece, of late fled from his native place, Forced by a tedious proof that Turkish hardened heart Is no fit mark to pierce with his fine pointed dart; And, pleased with our soft peace, stayed here his flying race. But, finding these north...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 5

It is most true—that eyes are formed to serve The inward light; and that the heavenly part Ought to be king; from whose rules, who doth swerve, Rebels to Nature, strive for their own smart. It is most true, what we call Cupid’s dart, An image...

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.
