  • American Modernist Poetsby Harold Bloom

    Infobase Publishing 2011; US$ 54.00

    The rise of modernism marked one of the major transitional periods in contemporary literature. The American modernist poets created a rich legacy in their verse explorations of a world touched by war, rapid industrialization, and the growing perceived alienation of the individual. The innovators featured in this volume include Ezra Pound, e.e. cummings,... more...

  • A Political Companion to Henry David Thoreauby Jack Turner

    The University Press of Kentucky 2010; US$ 0.00

    The writings of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) have captivated scholars, activists, and ecologists for more than a century. Less attention has been paid, however, to the author's political philosophy and its influence on American public life. Although Thoreau's doctrine of civil disobedience has long since become a touchstone of world history, the... more...

  • A Political Companion to Walt Whitmanby John E. Seery

    The University Press of Kentucky 2010; US$ 0.00

    The works of Walt Whitman have been described as masculine, feminine, postcolonial, homoerotic, urban, organic, unique, and democratic, yet arguments about the extent to which Whitman could or should be considered a political poet have yet to be fully confronted. Some scholars disregard Whitman's understanding of democracy, insisting on separating... more...

  • American Pragmatism and Poetic Practiceby Kristen Case

    Boydell & Brewer 2011; US$ 75.00

    Wittgenstein wrote that "philosophy ought really to be written only as a form of poetry." Kristen Case's book argues that American poets from Emerson to Susan Howe have responded to the central problems of Western philosophy by enacting, in language, the continually shifting relation between mind and world that pragmatism announces. Case... more...

  • Selected Letters of Walt Whitmanby Edwin Haviland Miller

    University of Iowa Press 1990; US$ 31.00

    There has never been an edition of the selected letters of Walt Whitman, a remarkable fact considering how accustomed we are to becoming acquainted with major writers through their letters. Now Edwin Haviland Miller, editor of the six-volume collected writings of Whitman, has used his intimate knowledge of the "good gray poet's" correspondence... more...

  • Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself"by Edwin Haviland Miller

    University of Iowa Press 1991; US$ 39.95

    One of Walt Whitman's most loved and greatest poems, "Song of Myself" is an optimistic and inspirational look at the world. Originally published as part of "Leaves of Grass" in 1855, "Song of Myself" is as accessible and important today as when it was first written. Read "Song of Myself" and enjoy a true... more...

  • The Pragmatic Whitmanby Stephen John Mack

    University of Iowa Press 2005; US$ 29.95

     In this surprisingly timely book, Stephen Mack examines Whitman’s particular and fascinating brand of patriotism: his far-reaching vision of democracy. For Whitman, loyalty to America was loyalty to democracy. Since the idea that democracy is not just a political process but a social and cultural process as well is associated with American... more...

  • Whitman East and Westby Ed Folsom

    University of Iowa Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    In Whitman East and West, fifteen prominent scholars track the surprising ways in which Whitman's poetry and prose continue to be meaningful at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Covering a broad range of issues--from ecology to children's literature, gay identity to China's May 4th Movement, nineteenth-century New York politics to the emerging... more...

  • Behind the Linesby Philip Metres

    University of Iowa Press 2007; US$ 35.00

    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...
