  • The World Of Hannah Moreby Patricia Demers

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    History has not been kind to Hannah More. This once lionized writer and activist -- the most influential female philanthropist of her day -- is now considered by many to be the embodiment of pious morality and reactionary anti-feminism. Largely because of her belief in separate spheres for men and women, More has been vilified by modern-day feminists.... more...

  • King Lear and the Godsby William R. Elton

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 19.95

    Many critics hold that Shakespeare's King Lear is primarily a drama of meaningful suffering and redemption within a just universe ruled by providential higher powers. William Elton's King Lear and the Gods challenges the validity of this widespread optimistic view. Testing the prevailing view against the play's acknowledged sources, and analyzing... more...

  • Magic in the Webby Robert B. Heilman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In his earlier work on King Lear , Mr. Heilman combined a number of critical procedures to form a new and important approach to Shakespearian criticism. His study of Othello displays the maturity of insight and skill in analysis the years have brought him in developing his critical method. Mr. Heilman takes account of stage effects; he traces... more...

  • Samuel Richardson and the Dramatic Novelby Ira Konigsberg

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Samuel Richardson, the founder of the modern English novel, gave shape to a previously unformed literary genre. Instrumental in the development of this new art form, Ira Konigsberg contends, is the influence of the drama. Although scholars have long suspected the influence of drama on Richardson's writing, this is the first study to examine it in... more...

  • Shakespeare and the Uses of Comedyby Jr. J. A. Bryant

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In Shakespeare's hand the comic mode became an instrument for exploring the broad territory of the human situation, including much that had normally been reserved for tragedy. Once the reader recognizes that justification for such an assumption is presented repeatedly in the earlier comedies -- from The Comedy of Errors to Twelfth Night -- he... more...

  • The Re-Imagined Textby Jean I. Marsden

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Shakespeare's plays were not always the inviolable texts they are almost universally considered to be today. The Restoration and eighteenth century committed what many critics view as one of the most subversive acts in literary history -- the rewriting and restructuring of Shakespeare's plays. Many of us are familiar with Nahum Tate's "audacious"... more...

  • The Unfolding God of Jung and Miltonby James P. Driscoll

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this first extensive Jungian treatment of Milton's major poems, James P. Driscoll uses archetypal psychology to explore Milton's great themes of God, man, woman, and evil and offers readers deepened understanding of Jung's profound thoughts on Godhead. The Father, the Son, Satan, Messiah, Samson, Adam, and Eve gain new dimensions of meaning as... more...

  • Quests of Differenceby G. Douglas Atkins

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this eminently readable book, G. Douglas Atkins continues the efforts undertaken in Reading Deconstruction/Deconstructive Reading to open eighteenth-century texts to the insights of recent critical theory. Through close readings of most of Pope's major poems, Atkins demonstrates how the powerful theoretical movement known as deconstruction enriches,... more...

  • Hippolyta's Viewby Jr. J. A. Bryant

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Scholars have already demonstrated that Shakespeare 's language abounds in Biblical allusions and references, but Mr. Bryant now undertakes to show us how such details may bear on the full meaning of the plays. Seeking to interpret Shakespeare's plays as Christian poetry, Mr. Bryant has developed in this significant work a new critical approach which... more...

  • Milton's Ontology, Cosmogony, and Physicsby Walter Clyde Curry

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Walter Clyde Curry, a well-known student of Milton, analyzes the origins and unique construction of the grand stage upon which Milton presents the drama of human destiny in Paradise Lost . Through close examination of four entities -- Heaven of Heavens, Hell, chaos, and the World -- a greatly expanded view is provided of the poet's concept of space... more...
