  • Language, Race, and Social Class in Howells's Americaby Elsa Nettels

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    No other American novelist has written so fully about language -- grammar, diction, the place of colloquialism and dialect in literary English, the relation between speech and writing -- as William Dean Howells. The power of language to create social, political, and racial identity was of central concern to Americans in the nineteenth century, and... more...

  • The Pictorial Modeby Donald A. Ringe

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Focusing on style as a means of thematic expression, Donald A. Ringe in this study examines in detail the affinities that exist between the paintings of the Hudson River school and the works of William Cullen Bryant, Washington Irving, and James Fenimore Cooper. The emphasis on physical description of nature that characterizes the work of these writers,... more...

  • Henry James Goes to the Moviesby Susan M. Griffin

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Why has a nineteenth-century author with an elitist reputation proved so popular with directors as varied as William Wyler, François Truffaut, and James Ivory? A partial answer lies in the way many of Henry James's recurring themes still haunt us: the workings of power, the position of women in society, the complexities of sexuality and desire. Susan... more...

  • Misery's Mathematicsby Peter Balaam

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 150.00

    This book reveals the strain of a moment in American cultural history that led several remarkable writers -- including Emerson, Warner, and Melville -- to render the stark rupture of loss in innovative ways. Pushing Protestant culture's sense of loss into secular terrain, these three key writers rejected Calvinist and sentimental models of bereavement,... more...

  • William Dean Howells and the Ends of Realismby Paul Abeln

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 147.00

    Despite efforts at revival by John Updike and others, William Dean Howells still remains in the shadows of his close friends Mark Twain and Henry James. This book works against decades of unfavorable comparisons with these literary giants. William Dean Howells and the Ends of Realism helps us to see him as a writer very much aware of his limitations... more...
