"It's a pleasant piece of pageantry. . . . Rationally it is lunatic, yet in perform, each person enjoys it, I think."—HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Founded via Edward III in 1348, the main Noble Order of the Garter is the top chivalric honor one of the presents of the Queen of britain and an establishment that appears proudly again to its medieval origins. yet what does the once a year Garter procession of recent princes and politicians decked out in velvets and silks need to do with fourteenth-century associations? And did the Order, in any occasion, truly originate within the dresser malfunction of the conventional tale, while Edward held up his mistress's dropped garter for all to determine and declared it to be a mark of honor instead of disgrace? Or is that this story of the Order's starting not anything greater than a vulgar myth?
With regular erudition and never rare irreverence, Stephanie Trigg levels from medieval romance to Victorian comic strip, from imperial politics to medievalism in modern tradition, to write down a strikingly unique cultural historical past of the Order of the Garter. She explores the Order's makes an attempt to reform and modernize itself, at the same time it holds onto an ambivalent dating to its medieval earlier. She revisits these moments in British historical past whilst the Garter has taken on new or elevated value and explores an extended culture of entertainment and embarrassment over its formal processions and difficult costumes. Revisiting the parable of the dropped garter itself, she asks what it may let us know approximately our wish to search the hidden sexual background in the back of so venerable an institution.
Grounded in archival aspect and mixing historic strategy with reception and cultural stories, Shame and Honor untangles 650 years of truth, fiction, ritual, and reinvention.
