The popularity of the comic performers of late-Georgian and Regency England and their frequent depiction in portraits, caricatures and prints is beyond dispute, yet until now little has been written on the subject. In this unique study Jim Davis considers the representation of English low comic actors, such as Joseph Munden, John Liston, Charles Mathews and John Emery, in the visual arts of the period, the ways in which such representations became part of the visual culture of their time, and the impact of visual representation and art theory on prose descriptions of comic actors. Davis reveals how many of the actors discussed also exhibited or collected paintings and used painterly techniques to evoke the world around them. Drawing particularly on the influence of Hogarth and Wilkie, he goes on to examine portraiture as critique and what the actors themselves represented in terms of notions of national and regional identity.

From the book: His seedy crew shouted, "Three cheers for Captain Garfield, the tackiest captain on the seven seas!" "We haven't been home in three years, Cap'n," said one of the crew. "I'm getting lonesome for home." "What's a few nights out with the boys when you're looking for treasure?" said Garfield. "All we have to do is find the other half of this map." This is a delightful picture book, and image descriptions have been included.
We're living between Eden and Heaven, and it's going to hurt. When trials come, will they defeat you or strengthen you? It all depends on which questions you ask.We have lots of di!erent ways of asking why God allows su!ering. The Bible shows us that it is human to question God when trials come, but it isn't very productive. God hasn't answered the why me questions, and if we get stuck on them it can distance us from the very one who o!ers us hope in a storm.But there are other things we can ask about trials, questions that God does answer. The "right" questions relate to what God can accomplish through our pain, such as how a trial brings us closer to God and equips us for service. When we stop asking, "Why me?" and start asking, "What can God do with this?" it changes everything.
