  • The Living Milton (Routledge Revivals)by Sir Frank Kermode

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    Various aspects of Milton are explored in this collection of essays by scholars whose reputations were, at the time of publication in 1960, perhaps largely based on their writings on more modern subjects. This had the advantage of demonstrating that Milton as a poet is "alive" and that other attempts to represent him as irrelevant to the interests... more...

  • Milton and the Politics of Public Speechby Dr Helen Lynch

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    Using Hannah Arendt’s account of the Greek polis to explain Milton’s fascination with the idea of public speech, this book reveals what is distinctive about his conception of a godly, republican oratory and poetics. Setting Milton’s poetry and prose in the context of Civil War polemic; classical political theory and its early modern... more...

  • 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...

  • Divided Fictionsby Kristina Straub

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Today Fanny Burney's venture into authorship would not be questionable. She was, after all, a daughter of a celebrated musician, and the Burney family was know to the circle of Samuel Johnson and Hester Thrale. Yet as Kristina Straub ably shows, the public recognition which followed the publication of her first novel placed Fanny Burney in a situation... more...

  • Boswellby Irma S. Lustig

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    These eleven original essays by well-known eighteenth-century scholars, five of them editors of James Boswell's journal or letters, commemorate the bicentenary of Boswell's death on May 19, 1795. The volume illuminates both the life and the work of one of the most important literary figures of the age and contributes significantly to the scholarship... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 50.00

The English civil wars forced her into exile, accompanying Queen Henrietta Maria and her court to Paris. From this vantage point, she began writing voluminously, responding to the events and... more...
