Wright, William. Advice on the Study and Practice of the Law: With Directions for the Choice of Books. Addressed to Attorneys' Clerks. London: Printed for Charles Hunter, 1824. x, 248 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2003053955. ISBN 1-58477-370-7. Cloth. $95. * Reprint of the third edition, enlarged. This book was written in the spirit of earlier guides by Fulbeck, Doderidge and Philips, but with a particular emphasis on the needs of clerks. It addresses a clerk's duties, the relationship between clerks and attorneys, ways to work more effectively and other practical matters. Wright is also interested in the clerk's intellectual development. To this end he recommends a rich curriculum of jurisprudential, political, historical and literary works and encourages the study of old court hands and Latin. Like his predecessors, Wright dispenses a good deal of moral advice as well. Equally fascinating and charming, this treatise offers a rich perspective on English clerks during the age of Austen, Dickens and Trollope.
Daniel Cross Turner and William Wright’s anthology Hard Lines: Rough South Poetry centers on the darker side of southern experience while presenting a remarkable array of poets from diverse backgrounds in the American South. As tough-minded as they are high-minded, the sixty contemporary poets and two hundred poems anthologized in Hard Lines enhance the powerful genre of “Grit Lit.” The volume gathers the work of poets who have for some decades formed the heart of southern poetry as well as that of emerging voices who will soon become significant figures in southern literature. These poems sting our sensesinto awareness of a gritty world down South: hard work, hard love, hard drinking, hard times; but they also explore the importance of the land and rural experience, as well as race- , gender- , and class-based conflicts. Readers will see, hear (for poetry is meant to ring in the ears), and feel (for poetry is meant to beat in the blood); there is plenty of raucousness in this anthology.And yet the cultural conflicts that ignite southern wildness are often depicted in a manner that is lyrical without becoming lugubrious, mournful but not maudlin. Some of these poets are coming to terms with a visibly transforming culture—a “roughness” in and of itself. Indeed many of these poets are helping to change the definition of the South. The anthology also features biographical information on each poet in addition to further reading suggestions and scholarly sources on contemporary poetry.
