The Blazing World

The Blazing World

Author: Margaret Cavendish Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir Release Date: 01/03/2021

In 1666, as Sir Isaac Newton is developing differential calculus and Robert Hooke suggests that the force of gravity can be measured utilizing the motion of a pendulum, Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle, published The Description of A New World, Called the Blazing-World, better known as The Blazing World. A young Lady is kidnapped by a visiting merchant who is enchanted with her. Through divine interference, the ship is beset by a storm and everyone but the Lady perishes. Blown up to the North Pole, she inadvertently passes into to another world, the Blazing World, where she is almost immediately made supreme ruler. As the Lady begins to exercise her will, Cavendish lays out her own utopia and discusses a wide range of scientific, political, social, and religious topics. But when a war breaks out in her home world, what will the Lady do with all power of the Blazing World behind her? An adventure tale, a romance, and a work of proto-science fiction, this seventeenth-century utopian novel touches on alchemy, the occult, religion, and natural philosophy while exploring such issues as science, gender, and power.

The Blazing World and Other Writings: Penguin Classics

Author: Margaret Cavendish Narrator: Abigail Thaw Release Date: 01/07/2020

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Abigail Thaw, best known for her role as Dorothea Frazil in Endeavour. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Kate Lilley, also read by Abigail Thaw. Flamboyant, theatrical and ambitious, Margaret Cavendish was one of the seventeenth century's most striking figures: a woman who ventured into the male spheres of politics, science, philosophy and literature. The Blazing World is a highly original work: part Utopian fiction, part feminist text, it tells of a lady shipwrecked on the Blazing World where she is made Empress and uses her power to ensure that it is free of war, religious division and unfair sexual discrimination. This volume also includes The Contract, a romance in which love and law work harmoniously together, and Assaulted and Pursued Chastity, which explores the power and freedom a woman can achieve in the disguise of a man.

The Blazing World

Author: Margaret Cavendish Narrator: Ava Teery Release Date: 01/07/2020
