... ( 1590 ), a prose tale interspersed with poems which had already reached its fourth edition in 1598 , although Shakespeare makes some telling alterations to this well-known pastoral romance. The play, for example, makes Lodge’s rival dukes into brothers (so that their antagonism parallels that between the hero and his eldest brother), and has the usurper spontaneously repent so as to permit the concluding restoration of the exiled court (enabled in Rosalynde only by a bloody battle in which the usurper dies). Shakespeare, moreover, changes all the...

...lower gentry / middle classes and aristocracy as mutually beneficial: allowing social mobility for the gentry, and moral and financial regeneration for the aristocracy. In Pride and Prejudice ( 1813 ), for example, Elizabeth Bennett 's consciousness of Darcy 's ‘pride’ is represented as the ‘prejudice’ of intelligent lower-gentry female subjectivity, whilst Darcy personifies an unbecoming ‘pride’ in not wishing to marry down into the landless gentry. With the cancelling out of these traits, class antagonism is neutralized. In Persuasion ( 1817 ) Sir...

...antagonism the competition between an agonist and an antagonist for a receptor that occurs when the binding of agonist and antagonist is mutually exclusive. This may be because the agonist and antagonist compete for the same binding site, or combine with adjacent but overlapping sites. A third possibility is that different sites are involved but that they influence the receptor macromolecule in such a way that agonist and antagonist molecules cannot be bound at the same time. If the agonist and antagonist form only short‐lived combinations with the...

...the UK, but the latter has been catching up in recent years with journalism in both countries now largely a graduate occupation. Journalism education can on occasion involve a blurring of the two strands of training and critical theory , and at other times seems to provoke mutual antagonism between the two. By emphasizing education rather than (just) training, journalism education aspires to go beyond providing employers with a skilled labour force, to encourage a more independent, questioning, ethical, and reflective approach to journalism.

...speech, on 8 February 1787 , lasted an astonishing 5 hours and 40 minutes. For all his ability, Sheridan never attained cabinet rank, and served only as under‐secretary at the Foreign Office ( 1782 ), Treasury secretary ( 1783 ), and treasurer of the navy ( 1806–7 ). Mutual antagonism between Sheridan and Burke contributed to the disintegration of the Whig Party in the 1790s, with Sheridan flaunting his admiration for the French principles Burke despised. He died in straitened circumstances, caused partly by losses incurred from his involvement with...

Samuel *Johnson , a native of Lichfield, was a distant connection, but their mutual antagonism is reflected in her published letters, which included pseudonymous criticism of Johnson and acrimonious exchanges with James *Boswell . Her correspondence records literary friendships with Hester Thrale *Piozzi ; Thomas *Day ; Lady Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby [...

...when the benefits each of the two species receives from the interaction exceed the costs it experiences. Yet the sizes of both the costs and benefits of mutualism are known to be highly variable in space in time. In some circumstances, a single interaction may vary all the way from mutualism (i.e., benefiting both partners), to commensalism (benefiting one partner and neutral to the other), to antagonism (benefiting one partner and harmful to the other). Buckley and Ebersole ( 1994 ) describe an interaction involving a hermit crab and a small hydroid...

Their mutual antagonism eventually reached the proportions of a national scandal, but both were most extraordinarily productive scientists. L. J....

His predominant loyalty was to Fox; but Sheridan’s intrigues in the Regency crisis were not approved. Mutual antagonism between Sheridan and Burke contributed to the disintegration of the Whig Party in the 1790s, with Sheridan flaunting his admiration for the French principles Burke despised.

...A term in use particularly after 1938 for the north-west frontier region of the Czech lands (Bohemia) which had become an area of German settlement over the course of centuries. In response to the rise of nationalism among both its German and Czech population, mutual antagonism had grown since the late nineteenth century, whipped up by the spread of cultural and linguistic associations. In 1919 , it became part of Czechoslovakia under the terms of the Paris Peace Conference . This incited vociferous German protests, and led to sporadic violence...

...organizers in urban American, however, faced a unique set of challenges. They tried to meet the physical and social challenges to a community striving to realize the fruits of emancipation while responding to a largely hostile white population's antagonism to interracial citizenship, let alone fellowship and mutual assistance. The leadership of African American organizations often overlapped with and sometimes preceded black religious institutions. Associations and churches shared similar purposes: seeking to build communal solidarity, to provide welfare...

...shy at the commencement of a party; confusingly vigilant about the middle and insultingly weary towards the end’ (ch. 22). William's curious, wary, love‐hate relationship with Hunsden, epitomized in their boyish tussle in chapter 24, is probably a hangover from the mutual fascination and antagonism of the two brothers, Charles and Arthur Augustus Wellesley (Duke of Zamorna ), in the Glass Town and Angrian saga . Psychologically interesting but not fully integrated with William's other qualities, it is one consequence of the novel's piecemeal...
