    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    This work addresses Yeats's "antinomies", seeing their origin and structure in his divided Anglo-Irish inheritance and examining the notion of measure. It then explores how this relates to freemasonry, Celticism and Orientalism and looks at the Blakean esoteric language of contrariety and outline which provided Yeats with the vocabulary of self-understanding.... more...

  • The Reasonable Manby Coral Lansbury

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 30.00

    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...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    This new study of the major prose and plays of Oscar Wilde argues that his dominant aesthetic category is not art but style.

  • The Poetic World of Emily Brontėby Laura Inman

    Sussex Academic Press 2014; US$ 19.99

    Bringing an unjustifiably marginalized poet out of the shadows, this book presents Emily Brontė?s poetry in a way that enables readers, even those who shy away from poetry, to appreciate her work. She is widely known as a novelist, but she was first and equally a poet. Her poems are varied, lyrical, intriguing, and innovative, yet they are not well... more...

  • The Form of the Unfinishedby Ballachandra Rajan

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 41.00

    Distinguishing between the incomplete poem and the unfinished poem, Professor Rajan sees the unfinished poem as remaining in dialogue with its own dissensions. He contributes to current critical debates by showing how the long poem resists assimilation to the forces of both unification and undecidability, finding its significance on the line of engagement... more...
