Ever since their rediscovery in the 1920s, John Donne's writings have been praised for their energy, vigour and drama - yet so far, no attempt has been made to approach and define systematically these major characteristics of his work. Drawing on J. L. Austin's speech act theory, Margret Fetzer's comparative reading of Donne's poetry... more...
- McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00
With his Miller's Tale Chaucer transformed a colorless Middle Dutch account into the lively, dramatic story of raunchy Nicholas, sexy Alison, foolish John and squeamish Absolon.

A study which explores the implications of multiple authorship, using as examples the case of Keats and the assistants who aided him in the creation of "Isabella", the contributions of John Stuart Mill's wife to his autobiography, and the revisions to Wordsworth's "The Prelude". more...
- University of Ottawa Press 1998; US$ 11.99
Colin Grant challenges the popular use of "myth" as a dismissive designation of the superstitions and falsehoods of "other" cultures. The author maintains that myths occupy a place in our present-day lives that is every bit as important to us as the divinities and heroes of classical antiquity were to the ancients. The myths themselves are in a constant... more...
