    De Gruyter 1996; US$ 119.28

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 226.73

    The project of writing a social history of literature is generally held to have exhausted its potential.

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 173.52

    The concept of "literature" is notoriously vague and defies definition, yet at the same time it is indispensable in an age where traditional subject boundaries are breaking down.

  • Rückkehr des Autorsby Fotis Jannidis; Gerhard Lauer; Matias Martinez; Simone Winko

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 184.37

    Theoretical debate has declared the author obsolete. In practice, however, certain usages of the author concept are repeatedly demonstrated as being legitimate. This discrepancy suggests that theoretical reflection on the author fails to do justice to central forms of the scholarly approach to literature. The articles in this volume... more...
