    University of Minnesota Press 1997; US$ 82.50

    John Dryden claimed to share a kindred spirit, a congenial soul, with Geoffrey Chaucer, and he was not alone.

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2005; US$ 9.50

    Readers of this witty and fluent new translation of The Canterbury Tales should find themselves turning page after page: by recasting Chaucer's ten-syllable couplets into eight-syllable lines, Joseph Glaser achieves a lighter, more rapid cadence than other translators, a four-beat rhythm well-established in the English poetic tradition up to Chaucer's... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 72.80

    Readers today no longer relish sustained allegorical narratives the way they did in the Middle Ages, when the art of ‘other-speaking’ was as dominant in poetic discourse as it was elsewhere. Yet we live in an age which, following the postmodernist dictum that any sign can only refer to other signs, has declared all language liable to the... more...

    This book presents a major re-examination of the works of the fifteenth-century Scottish poet, Robert Henryson.

MacQueen argues that numerology... more...

  • Transcultural English Studiesby Frank Schulze-Engler; Sissy Helff

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 135.80

    What is most strikingly new about the transcultural is its sudden ubiquity. Following in the wake of previous concepts in cultural and literary studies such as creolization, hybridity, and syncretism, and signalling a family relationship to terms such as transnationality, translocality, and transmigration, ‘transcultural’ terminology has... more...
