    Distinguishing between the incomplete poem and the unfinished poem, Professor Rajan sees the unfinished poem as remaining in dialogue with its own dissensions.

    This work addresses Yeats's "antinomies", seeing their origin and structure in his divided Anglo-Irish inheritance and examining the notion of measure.

    In a new interpretation of the fiction of Anthony Trollope, Coral Lansbury argues that Trollope's work in the Post Office, starting in 1834, had more influence on his fiction than did any literary figure or tradition. Drawing on her original research in Post Office Records, she reveals the ways in which legal forms and legal reasoning shape both the... more...
