  • 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.

  • A Political Companion to Henry David Thoreauby Jack Turner

    The University Press of Kentucky 2010; US$ 40.00

    The writings of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) have captivated scholars, activists, and ecologists for more than a century.

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$ 40.00

    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."

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...

  • 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...

  • Walt Whitman, Where the Future Becomes Presentby David Haven Blake; Michael Robertson

    University of Iowa Press 1753; US$ 39.95

  • Poet's Proseby Stephen Fredman; Albert Gelpi

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 42.00

    Poet's Prose is the first scholarly work devoted exclusively to American prose poetry and has been recognised as a pioneering study in contemporary American poetry. Many recent American poets have been writing prose; Fredman has set out to determine why and what it means. Three central works of American poets' prose are discussed in detail: William... more...

  • The Undiscovered Countryby William Logan

    Columbia University Press 2005; US$ 26.99

    William Logan has been called both the "preeminent poet-critic of his generation" and the "most hated man in American poetry." For more than a quarter century, in the keen-witted and bare-knuckled reviews that have graced the New York Times Book Review , the Times Literary Supplement (London), and other journals, William Logan has delivered... more...
