    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 109.95

    In this sustained full length study of Marlowe's plays, Andrew Duxfield argues that Marlovian drama exhibits a marked interest in unity and unification, and that in doing so it engages with a discourse of anxiety over social discord that was prominent in the 1580s and 1590s. In combination with the ambiguity of the plays, he suggests, this focus produces... more...

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    The crises of faith that fractured Reformation Europe also caused crises of individual and collective identity.

  • The Sonnets and Narrative Poemsby William Shakespeare

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015; US$ 20.00

      If William Shakespeare had never written a single play, if his reputation rested entirely upon the substantial and sterling body of nondramatic verse he left behind, he would still hold the position he does in the hierarchy of world literature.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

  • Multilingualism in the Drama of Shakespeare and his Contemporariesby Dirk Delabastita; Ton Hoenselaars

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 135.00

  • Dead Letters Sentby Kevin Ohi

    University of Minnesota Press 2015; Not Available

    Literary texts that address tradition and the transmission of knowledge often seem concerned less with preservation than with loss, recurrently describing scenarios of what author Kevin Ohi terms ?thwarted transmission.? Such scenes, however, do not so much concede the impossibility of survival as look into what constitutes literary knowledge and... more...
