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 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 65

Love, by sure proof I may call thee unkind, That giv’st no better ear to my just cries; Thou whom to me such my good turns should bind, As I may well recount, but none can prize; For when, naked boy, thou could’st no harbour find In this old world,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 49

I on my horse, and Love on me, doth try Our horsemanships, while by strange work I prove A horseman to my horse, a horse to Love; And now man’s wrongs in me, poor beast, descry. The reins wherewith my rider doth me tie, Are humbled thoughts, which...

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 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...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 15

You that do search for every purling spring Which from the ribs of old Parnassus flows; And every flower, not sweet perhaps, which grows Near thereabouts into your poesy wring; You that do dictionary’s method bring Into your rhymes, running in rattling...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 14

Alas, have I not pain enough, my friend, Upon whose breast a fiercer gripe doth tire Than did on him who first stole down the fire, While Love on me doth all his quiver spend, But with your rhubarb words you must contend To grieve me worse, in saying...

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.
