It had been thought that PD was rare in SSA but recent research from Tanzania has demonstrated higher rates of age-adjusted prevalence than previously described, though not has high as in western countries Dotchin et al Most of the individuals identified in this house-to-house prevalence study had not been diagnosed and were not even aware of PD as a medical condition. Lack of diagnosis, and therefore treatment, is likely to have led to earlier mortality which is likely to be the main reason for the lower prevalence rates.
Blake and His Circle: Some 10 years ago, Drew Barrymore childishly kissed E. The actress is now about to publish her autobiography—by no means a small achievement at sweet 17—and, of course, it is to be entitled Little Girl Lost. The checklist is to be the last for which I take responsibility as the compiler; therefore, some introductory remarks addressing the present, past, and future of this serialized research report may be permitted, if not required.
Compared to the thousands of publications that are cited annually in the updates to the Shakespeare bibliography, the main entries in the list of Blake-related materials appear to signal no more than a fairly modest critical interest in the works of William Blake and his contemporaries.
In Gerald Bentley listed fewer than publications on Blake since the eighteenth century. At the present rate, and taking for a measure the entries in part I of the checklist for volume 25, this number will have doubled in no more than 15 years.
However, Blake worked as a poet and as an artist; in consequence, at least some Blake-related studies are likely to be published in art journals that are not searched by the MLA team, and with the Bibliography of the History of Art BHA, formerly RILA and its French counterpart a second source of information will still have to be tapped in any thorough bibliographical search.
However, and by necessity, the number of classified subjects that are easily and effectively accessible on disk remains limited, and the information retrieved from disk often remains critically unilluminating.
Nevertheless, the checklist may still, and largely on account of the abstracts and critical annotations it presents, function as a highly important service to the readers of this journal. However, a further shift in focus—from mere data toward the critical apparatus that accompanies them—appears to be unavoidable.
Whereas it is impossible, or at least a waste of valuable printing space, to return to that simple listing of books, articles, and reviews that we began with in the s, an annual bibliography with full critical annotations to all the entries would be enormously useful, might save a vast amount of time, and would be a major achievement for its compiler.
Reviews are not covered by the MLA Bibliography at all, and they are notoriously difficult to locate in any systematic way. I may say that I have spent a lot of time writing these checklists, and yet I found that it never was enough.
I have regularly searched well over journals in the fields of aesthetics, art history, book collecting and publishing history, critical theory, historical studies, British and international literary criticism, politics and sociology for Blake-related essays and reviews.
And I have found that these never were enough or what I had to work with was the wrong selection of journals for my particular needs. If it was anyone other than Gerald Bentley who was now destined to take over as bibliographer, I should have advised the appointment of an entire team of compilers.
Such a team might have stood a better chance than I of reaching that elusive ideal of bibliographical completeness, and it may even have been able to present the well-balanced critical account that some readers and authors have found to be wanting in my annotations and short reviews.
To return to the present list: Thus, I have again attempted to provide readers first with a more or less dispassionate summary of the contents of the articles and books that are listed.
Yet while the emphasis is put on the descriptive, my annotations, especially those that have grown into brief mentions or miniature reviews, do not steer entirely clear of the critical.
In writing my annotations, I have, in effect, employed what the professional bibliographer might feel tempted to describe as an incongruous pairing of paraphrase and commentary see James L. Modern Language Association of America, ] However, since brevity may make me appear even more intolerant than I really am, I should like to point out that, over the years, I have learned a great deal, in both fact and theory, from almost all the authors I have encountered.
The most important addition to the bibliographical resources available to the Blake scholar certainly is the CD-ROM version of all the entries recorded in the MLA International Bibliography from to the present see above and 28, below. Finally, there is a new biography of Blake seebelow.
Unfortunately, it is not the one that I and, judging from the first few reviews I have seenat least some others have been waiting for.
The artisan-poet is increasingly seen not only as a critic of the bourgeois establishment, but also of the enlightened middle-class radicalism of the Johnson circle see 53, 66, 74,,and Parkinson's South Africa.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive condition that involves a gradual loss of nerve cells in a finite area of the brain, leading to problems with movement control and other non-movement-related symptoms.
