Throughout its ten related essays, Imagining the Real contrasts our abstract imaginings about the human world with the imaginative insights provided by art and experience. It questions, variously, the relevance of game theory and sociobiology to politics; the supposed intrinsic values of liberal freedom, cultural change, and democratic action; and... more...

Anglo-Irish Modernism and the Maternal argues that a focus on the construction of mother-figures in Irish culture illuminates the extraordinary achievement of the Irish modernists. Essentially, the seminal Irish modernists - Moore, Joyce, Synge, Yeats and O'Casey - resisted those mother-figures sanctioned by cultural discourses, re-writing her in... more...

Women's adultery provides many of the plots that run through nineteenth-century European fiction. This book discusses how novels of adultery have been theorized, argues its own theoretical perspective, and analyzes two 'circumtexts' of the fiction of female adultery: its pre-history in eighteenth-century Britain, and its decline during the Naturalist... more...

During the Northern Irish Troubles of the past thirty years, a war of words has accompanied and interpenetrated with the actual conduct of violence in highly complex ways.

This book considers the shifts in aesthetic representation over the period 1885-1930 that coincide both with the rise of literary Modernism and imperialism's high point. If it is no coincidence that the rise of the novel accompanied the expansion of empire in the eighteenth-century, then the historical conditions of fiction as the empire waned... more...

In the middle of the eighteenth century the Gothic became the universal language of architecture, painting and literature, expressing a love not only of ruins, decay and medieval pageantry, but also the drug-induced monsters of the mind. By explaining the international dimension of Gothicism and dealing in detail with German, French and American authors,... more...

Why do they call Adelaide, Australia the "City of Corpses"? How many people did Agatha Christie kill with her pen? And what did Edgar Allen Poe, America's first murder mystery writer, really die of? There's nothing like a little murder to capture a reader's attention. And in this random shooting of a trivia book, readers find all the gumshoes, guns,... more...

Hauptbeschreibung Men are allowed to cry. At least in the novels of Anne Brontė and her sister Charlotte as well as Elizabeth Gaskell. All three surely hold a front-row seat in British literary history. Thus whatever they wrote is still regarded as representative of the Mid-Victorian period. Anja Drautzburg explores Mid-Victorian forms and concepts... more...

Hauptbeschreibung Everybody knows what biographies are and many people still turn to them for truth about their subjects. But it is more obvious than ever that we can't completely trust records of the past, just as we can't always trust an eyewitness report to be true and objective. So life-stories, and particularly those with a neat narrative structure,... more...
