    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Contemporary criticism of Donne has tended to ignore the historical culture and ideology that conditioned his writings, reinforcing the traditionally accepted model of the poet as a humanist of ethical, cultural and political individualism.

  • Lesermodelle und Lesertheorienby Marcus Willand

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The theory and practice of literary studies has long been characterized by a virtually unnoticed asymmetry: the striking contrast between an intense effort to create a scientific foundation for the discipline and the equally striking paucity of efforts to systematically incorporate the reader models arising from these positions. This study attempts... more...
