...to Toronto, Canada, in 1848 and soon thereafter to England. Working as an antislavery lecturer, Green published his forty-three page Narrative of the Life of J. D. Green, a Runaway Slave in England in 1864. According to its title page, eight thousand copies of Green's Narrative were printed. The Narrative is notable for its depiction of Green as a wily and unapologetic slave trickster who exploits whites and blacks alike to achieve his ends. Green's unsentimental, rough-and-tumble portrayal of life on the plantation is one of several distinctively...

...more directly the social repercussions of industrialization. For Charles *Dickens , writing in 1840 , the Black Country represented a land and people ravaged by the brutality of the machine: it was a cheerless region … where not a blade of grass was seen to grow … where nothing green could live but on the surface of the stagnant pools; [a world in which] strange engines spun and writhed like tortured creatures, clanking their iron chains. [Dismantled houses] here and there appeared, tottering to the earth, propped up by fragments of others that had fallen...

The sofa and armchair designs by Hope had an archaic splendour and were avowedly taken from Egyptian precedents. The materials used in the cups, canopic vases, and...

...the name of Jacob. Cf. Gen 25:26 (J), where Jacob takes Esau by the heel ( ῾ăqēb ), and ῾āqab (supplant) is used rather in connection with Jacob's taking Esau's birthright and blessing in Gen 27:36 (J). A second allusion to Jacob's ambition comes in 12:3 b –4 a , recalling Jacob's wrestling with God/an angel at Penuel ( Gen. 32:22–32 ), though Hosea's reference to Jacob's weeping there is unattested in Genesis. The third allusion is to God's meeting with Jacob at Bethel ( 12:4 b ), attested in both Gen. 28:10–22 (J) and 35:9–15 (P). At 12:7–8 the...
