  • War, the Hero and the Willby Jane L. Bownas

    Sussex Academic Press 2015; US$ 49.99

    Thomas Hardy?s The Dynasts and Leo Tolstoy?s War and Peace are both works that defy association with a particular genre and might seem to have little else in common apart from being set in the same period of history. This study argues that there are important similarities between these two works and examines the close correspondence between Hardy?s... more...

  • Western Windsby Edward Chitham

    The History Press 2015; US$ 24.78

    The Irish heritage of the Brontė family has long been overlooked, partly because both Charlotte and her father Patrick did their very best to ensure that this was the case and because of the determined effort at the end of the nineteenth century to keep the Brontės as Yorkshire regional novelists. Yet their ideas and attitudes, and perhaps even their... more...

  • The Animal Claimby Tobias Menely

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    During the eighteenth century, some of the most popular British poetry showed a responsiveness to animals that anticipated the later language of animal rights.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 109.95

    Bringing together historians, literary scholars, theorists, librarians, and historians of the book, Reading and the Victorians examines the era when reading underwent a swifter and more radical transformation than at any other moment in history.

  • Best-Loved Oscar Wildeby John Wyse Jackson; Emma Byrne

    The O'Brien Press 2015; US$ 14.57
