    ABC-CLIO 2003; US$ 161.00

    The American literary canon has undergone revision and expansion in recent years, and our notions of the 19th-century renaissance have been reevaluated.

    This interdisciplinary collection explores the divergence or convergence of freedom and terror in a range of Byron's works.

    NYU Press 2009; US$ 89.00

  • Universes without Usby Matthew A. Taylor

    University of Minnesota Press 2013; US$ 75.00

    As Matthew A. Taylor?s incisive readings reveal, the heterodox cosmologies of Edgar Allan Poe, Henry Adams, Charles Chesnutt, and Zora Neale Hurston reject the anthropocentric fantasy that sees the universe as a kind of reservoir of self-realization.
