At first glance these poems (which read like one long odyssey) seem sweet and peaceful?like taking a walk in the woods. But then, things turn darker: a storm blows in?and with it some Aliens, Ghost and Ghoul, the Hanging Man.

This is the first novel published in Iowa. Printed in Dubuque in 1858, it was written to recruit emigrants to Iowa; what makes it unique among emigration literature is the fact that it was directed at women, using the form of a domestic novel loaded with gentle mothers and stalwart fathers, flower-gemmed prairies and vine-draped cottages, and lots... more...

In Aggregate of Disturbances , Michele Glazer confronts the slipperiness of language and perception as she probes natural processes?the lives of insects, the uncertainty of love, and the deaths of human beings. Nature?s beauty interests Glazer less than the fact that it is chaotic, amoral, redundant, charming, and indifferent to human concern?qualities... more...

By 1888, twenty years after the publication of Little Women, Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was one of the most popular and successful authors America had yet produced. In her pre-Little Women days, she concocted blood-and-thunder tales for low wages; post-Little Women, she specialized in domestic novels and short stories for children. Collected here... more...

Behind the Lines investigates American war resistance poetry from the Second World War through the Iraq wars. Rather than simply chronicling the genre, Philip Metres argues that this poetry gets to the heart of who is authorized to speak about war and how it can be represented. As such, he explores a largely neglected area of scholarship: the poet’s... more...

Cosmopolitical Claims is a profoundly original study of the works of Sten Nadonly, Emine Sevgi Ízdamar, Feridun Zaimoglu, and 2006 Nobel prize in literature recipient Orhan Pamuk. Rather than using the proverbial hyphen in ?Turkish-German? to indicate a culture caught between two nations, Venkat Mani is interested in how Turkish-German literature engages... more...
