Sullivan, Karen. The interrogation of Joan of Arc.
A very close reading, and also an examination of the transcripts for evidence of transcriber's changes in the literal record, apparently without any purpose of "cover-up," done rather with a clerical eye to orthodoxy and literary coherence. Sample of Sullivan's prose, which is orthodox Grad Student: "In these responses, Joan showed a new willingness to discuss the physical appearance of the voices. Earlier she had refused to provide details about their hair, clothes, and rings and had responded to the clerics' questions about these details by insisting upon the identification of these voices as saints and angels... Now, however, in providing a physical description of the voices, she consented to the clerics' demand and portrayed ..the empirical perception without the emotion attached to the perception. By informing the clerics of the minuteness and the multiplicity of the voices without attempting to make sense of what she was describing, Joan spoke like the ideal patient describing her symptoms to the physician. She provided the details of her symptoms without hazarding a diagnosis of her illness.." p.145.

Chapter titles include - How the rich breed and guard sexual vice, Race decay through patriotism, Toadyism of the American brain, Should the rich be personally hated?, The impossibility of marriage and other topics. "We have come," he declares, p.233, "to the parting ways where race-evolution irrevocably rules that the cancer Capitalism must go".

Vargas, Ava, compiler. La casa de cita; Mexican photographs from the belle epoque, with an
afterword by Colin Osman.
Portraits of young women, alone, in pairs and
threes, usually full-length, a few torso & face only. Some are posed (and
all are very much "posed") outdoors in bosky wood or freshet-laced
dell, or indoors, amidst grand furniture and drapery.
"Casa de cita" translates literally as meeting-house, but in the usage of the time, as bordello --specifically bordello in the French style. "Unlike the brothels of the lower orders, this was not somewhere [Vargas' English is stilted but clear] designed solely for the purpose of sexual transaction. Rather was it an elegant variation on the gentleman's club, where the nobility could, after dining quietly at home, drop by to meet friends and colleagues over a drink and a cigar. The men were meanwhile waited on by attractive, elegantly dressed young women, who would sing and play for them, and also provide a little discreet sex for those who desired it." --compiler Vargas rather gets into the spirit of the thing, she goes on in this vein at length, and learnedly. The plates themselves are from "stereoscopic positives on glass," which reproduce well; the prints are densely inked, detailed, subtle. A few poses suggest lesbian activity, these for male interest.
