Pilgrims by Elizabeth Gilbert Summary

The cowboys, strippers, labourers and magicians of Pilgrims are all on their way to being somewhere, or someone, else. Some are browbeaten and world-weary, others are deluded and naïve, yet all seek companionship as fiercely as they can. A tough East Coast girl dares a western cowboy to run off with her; a matronly bar owner falls in love with her nephew; an innocent teenager falls hopelessly for the local bully's sister. These are tough heroes and heroines, hardened by their experiences, who struggle for their epiphanies. Yet hope is never far away and though they may act blindly, they always act bravely. Sharply drawn and tenderly observed, Pilgrims is filled with Gilbert's inimitable humour and warmth.

Performing the Pilgrims by Stephen Eddy Snow Summary

A scholarly inquiry into how portrayals of the Pilgrims evolved from glorification to more accurate reconstruction of history through performance The various ways in which the Pilgrims have been represented over the past three hundred years reflect important changes in American culture. This study of a phenomenon at "Plimoth Plantation" reveals a pattern created by progressive cultural forces in the United States to establish historical accuracy. It traces the transformation in the styles of portraying the cultural history of one of America's earliest immigrant groups, the Pilgrims of Plymouth, Massachusetts. In the nineteenth century the Pilgrim story was romanticized in poetry and paintings. The purpose of such portrayals was glorification, not historical accuracy. After the fourth Thursday of every November was designated by President Lincoln as Thanksgiving Day, the Pilgrim image became ubiquitous in American popular culture. Those simple, hardworking settlers of one of America's first towns began to assume mythic proportions. This study of how the Pilgrims have been represented in American cultural life mainly focuses on the development of the performances in the Living Museum of Seventeenth Century Plymouth at Plimoth Plantation. After World War II a plan was devised to replicated the "First Street" of Plymouth. By the late 1950s Pilgrim houses were reconstructed, and mannequins depicted scenes of Pilgrim life. Docents, dressed in somewhat inauthentic period garb, described the historical significance of the tableaux. The cultural revolution of the 1960s brought also a revolution in the style of representing the Pilgrims. In an attempt to define the real Pilgrims, the idea of "sainted ancestors" was eradicated. James Deetz, an anthropologist from Harvard, established a new approach to ethnohistorical research. In portraying the Pilgrims in this era, reenactors made no attempt to glorify but instead to give earnest assessment of all ethnographic data available and to re-create an authentic Pilgrim. Deetz and his colleagues established a "living museum" in which history was no longer described and discussed, but, rather, reenacted. This book documents and analyzes the momentous shift in the style of representing the history at Plimoth Plantation. It closely examines the emergence of the first-person, role-playing re-creation that is based upon performing ethnography. An important work in the field of performance studies, it explores postmodern cultural forces at work in the late twentieth century. Stephen Snow, Ph.D., RDT-BCT, is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia University in Montreal. Most recently, he completed a three-year project (2005-2008) in Performance Ethnography with adults with developmental disabilities at Concordia's Centre for the Arts in Human Development, of which he is a Co-Founder.

The England and Holland of the Pilgrims by Henry Martyn Dexter,Morton Dexter Summary

Comprised of six books, this work constitutes an encyclopedic history of Pilgrim affairs in England and Holland, a systematic examination of every facet of Pilgrim life from the shaping of the Protestant conscience, to the history of the Separatists, to summaries and particulars of those who set out to America. of inestimable value to the researcher is the appendicized register of all those in the Pilgrim company who resided in Holland up to the end of the 17th century, some of whom may never have voyaged to America. The entries, typically, give place of origin, occupation, names of wives (with dates of betrothal), references to contemporary Dutch records, and a variety of incidental matter-in all, a successful attempt at enumerating the whole company of Pilgrims in Holland.

The Pilgrims by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Summary

Entreated to tell them of his sorrow, the knight unburdens himself and relates a tragic tale of love and loss. Resigned to the bitter fate that life has dealt him, the knight is unaware of the true nature of the two young people’s pilgrimage, until a revelation transforms his understanding of his past and reveals the possibility of a new future. Four other short stories by Shelley are also included: "The Dream," "The False Rhyme," "The Invisible Girl," and "The Mourner."

Pilgrims to Jerusalem in the Middle Ages by Nicole Chareyron Summary

"Every man who undertakes the journey to the Our Lord's Sepulcher needs three sacks: a sack of patience, a sack of silver, and a sack of faith."—Symon Semeonis, an Irish medieval pilgrim As medieval pilgrims made their way to the places where Jesus Christ lived and suffered, they experienced, among other things: holy sites, the majesty of the Egyptian pyramids (often referred to as the "Pharaoh's granaries"), dips in the Dead Sea, unfamiliar desert landscapes, the perils of traveling along the Nile, the customs of their Muslim hosts, Barbary pirates, lice, inconsiderate traveling companions, and a variety of difficulties, both great and small. In this richly detailed study, Nicole Chareyron draws on more than one hundred firsthand accounts to consider the journeys and worldviews of medieval pilgrims. Her work brings the reader into vivid, intimate contact with the pilgrims' thoughts and emotions as they made the frequently difficult pilgrimage to the Holy Land and back home again. Unlike the knights, princes, and soldiers of the Crusades, who traveled to the Holy Land for the purpose of reclaiming it for Christendom, these subsequent pilgrims of various nationalities, professions, and social classes were motivated by both religious piety and personal curiosity. The travelers not only wrote journals and memoirs for themselves but also to convey to others the majesty and strangeness of distant lands. In their accounts, the pilgrims relate their sense of astonishment, pity, admiration, and disappointment with humor and a touching sincerity and honesty. These writings also reveal the complex interactions between Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Holy Land. Throughout their journey, pilgrims confronted occasionally hostile Muslim administrators (who controlled access to many holy sites), Bedouin tribes, Jews, and Turks. Chareyron considers the pilgrims' conflicted, frequently simplistic, views of their Muslim hosts and their social and religious practices.
