    University of Iowa Press 1995; US$ 29.95

    Celebrating the various ethnic traditions that melded to create what we now call American literature, Whitman did his best to encourage an international reaction to his work.

  • Logik der Prosaby Astrid Arndt; Lars Korten; Christoph Deupmann

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2012; US$ 37.84

    Die Idee, dass literarische Prosa einer spezifischen Logik folgt, wenn sie als Kunstform anerkannt werden will, ist einleuchtend: Ohne über die evidente Künstlichkeit gebundener Rede zu verfügen, muss sie spezifische Verfahren entwickeln, um sich von prosaischer Alltagsrede wirksam zu unterscheiden. Die Geschichte dieses Gedankens und seiner ästhetischen... more...

    University of Alabama Press 2011; US$ 34.95

    Explores Whitman’s intimate and lifelong concern with mortality and his troubled speculations about the afterlife. Walt Whitman is unquestionably a great poet of the joys of living.

  • The Evolution of Walt Whitmanby Roger Asselineau

    University of Iowa Press 1999; US$ 40.00

    Now, nearly forty years after its original translation into English, Roger Asselineau's complete and magisterial biography of Walt Whitman will remind readers of the complex weave of traditions in Whitman scholarship.

  • Theorists of Modernist Poetryby Rebecca Beasley

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 24.95

    Modernist poetry heralded a radical new aesthetic of experimentation, pioneering new verse forms and subjects, and changing the very notion of what it meant to be a poet. This volume examines T.S. Eliot, T.E. Hulme and Ezra Pound, three of the most influential figures of the modernist movement, and argues that we cannot dissociate their bold, inventive... more...
