    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 94.99

    This book is a re-examination of the fertile years of early modernism immediately preceding the First World War.

  • Fateful Beautyby Douglas Mao

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 31.95

    When Oscar Wilde said he had "seen wallpaper which must lead a boy brought up under its influence to a life of crime," his joke played on an idea that has often been taken quite seriously--both in Wilde's day and in our own. In Fateful Beauty , Douglas Mao recovers the lost intellectual, social, and literary history of the belief that the beauty--or... more...

  • The Abject of Desireby Konstanze Kutzbach; Monika Mueller

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 86.80

    The Abject of Desire approaches the aestheticization of the unaesthetic via a range of different topics and genres in twentieth-century Anglophone literature and culture.
