The plays of Ed Thomas and the cultural politics of South Wales

its comic brio, that image only served to reinforce images of the Welsh as voluble sexual obsessives. Thomas, however, insists that ‘[we] can’t just blame the ignorance and stereotypes on people from outside’ (quoted in McLean 1995: 6). Self-generated images have themselves ensured that the Welsh are incarcerated in a cultural landscape formed of an amalgam of John Ford’s How Green Was My Valley and Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood. Loren Kruger has written persuasively on the role of the theatre in establishing a national hegemony by ‘summoning a representative

. Childhood disability and pathological difference Scholars of disability have painted a bleak picture of the exclusion, separation, and incarceration of individuals living with impairment in the past. Those working in the field have argued that disability was a social construction imposed on the biologically impaired through architecture, stigma, and socio-economic structures, all of which were shaped by an able-bodied society. 46 Much literature in this field has concentrated on the twentieth century

concentration camps for the Herero and Nama prisoners. It is therefore possible, one would suspect, that some of the Herero and Nama victims, whose skulls are currently hidden at the old national museum, or their associates whose remains are still missing, were once incarcerated or even died at this site. Therefore, the return of bones to the place associated with bitter memories of physical and emotional abuse of the Herero and Nama people awakens memories of untold atrocities experienced in the German concentration camps.

These political disturbances had a background of social distress produced by a combination of a bitter winter and economic recession, and the propertied class closed ranks in face of this threat. Opposition MPs joined with ministerial supporters to criticise not the deployment of troops but the government failure to maintain order. Lord North replied by blaming

The criminalisation process has been explored within the discipline of sociology and the sub-discipline of the sociology of deviance. It involves both mechanisms of selection, interpretation, individuation and projection as well as incarceration, isolation

spiritual apprehension of the metaphysical Augustinian civitas dei with ‘gilded cupolas and spires of alabaster’, it is rudely and bathetically interrupted by the imagined sound of the voice of Ambrose (Hetton’s butler) announcing, ‘The City is served’ (HD, p. 203). From this point in the novel it becomes apparent that Tony is to be denied a heroically tragic outcome in any conventional sense. It remains for him to be shown fear in a handful of dust, through an horrific incarceration in the middle of the Brazilian jungle where he is condemned to read over and over again

, the Jew Lazarro Levi accused Rabbi Abraham Belgrado of using sorcery to cure him of an illness the previous year.The Rabbi was incarcerated for a month as a punishment.83 Of the sixteen proceedings between 1598 and 1638 that were initiated by Jewish delators, only six ended in the conviction of the Jewish suspects. Jewish delators did not, it seems, always structure their accusations according to the Aron-Beller_01_TextAll.indd 138 18/02/2011 14:22 the piazzA 139 categorization of violations and offences listed by the Inquisition.

He continued: every time policemen approach a delinquent it is an additional enemy that they create, [therefore] a moment will come when the desire to avoid any trouble will incite policemen to neglect their duty […] rather than intervene, so that our police force, greatly reduced in number, completely disarmed and constantly threatened with arrest, will only constitute an apparent rather than real force and will be incapable of maintaining order more than ever necessary.20 The Commissaire gave an example of this

In addition, a fine could be imposed on the defendant who failed to prove his or her slander – as happened to Leonhart Immell at Wettringen’s court – while short spells of incarceration, and the shaming punishment of carrying a large stone around Rothenburg were imposed more rarely, and for more serious slanders, on men and women, respectively. In cases involving allegations so serious that they risked exposing individuals to the rigours of criminal law procedure and which were proven to be untrue and malicious, the council was willing to
