  • The Science Fiction of Phyllis Gotliebby Dominick Grace

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 45.00

    Gotlieb is a writer central to the Canadian science fiction canon. Though she has been called the queen of Canadian SF by Robert J. Sawyer, and though David Ketterer has suggested that she is Canadian SF, Gotlieb has been largely overlooked by SF studies. This book delves deeply into her body of work and traces her career in detail. Offering close... more...

  • Open Houseby David Brooks

    University of Queensland Press 2015; US$ 12.99

    The poems in this striking new collection take a number of forms, drifting between nature and philosophy, evoking a meditative quality that is both contemplative and full of grace.

  • Irish Cosmopolitanismby Nels Pearson

    University Press of Florida 2015; US$ 74.95

    Looking at the writing of three Irish expatriates who lived in Trieste, London, and Paris, Nels Pearson challenges conventional critical trends that view their work as either affirming Irish anti-colonial sentiment or embracing international identity. In reality, he argues, these writers work constantly back and forth between a sense of national belonging... more...

  • Science in Wonderland: The scientific fairy tales of Victorian Britainby Melanie Keene

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 19.99

    In Victorian Britain an array of writers captured the excitement of new scientific discoveries, and enticed young readers and listeners into learning their secrets, by converting introductory explanations into quirky, charming, and imaginative fairy-tales; forces could be fairies, dinosaurs could be dragons, and looking closely at a drop of water revealed... more...

  • Laden Choirsby Peter Wolfe

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1973 the Australian novelist Patrick White won the Nobel Prize for Literature, the year that his great novel of family ties and change, The Eye of the Storm , was published and became a bestseller in America and Europe. Yet White is still not widely known or read, and few writers of today have provoked so many contradictory judgments. Now Peter... more...

  • Genius in Bondageby Vincent Carretta; Philip Gould

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    Until fairly recently, critical studies and anthologies of African American literature generally began with the 1830s and 1840s. Yet there was an active and lively transatlantic black literary tradition as early as the 1760s. Genius in Bondage situates this literature in its own historical terms, rather than treating it as a sort of prologue to... more...

  • The Courtship Novel, 1740-1820by Katherine Sobba Green

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    The period from her first London assembly to her wedding day was the narrow span of autonomy for a middle-class Englishwoman in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. For many women, as Katherine Sobba Green shows, the new ideal of companionate marriage involved such thoroughgoing revisions in self-perception that a new literary form was needed... more...

  • Her Bread To Earnby Mona Scheuermann

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    Much criticism has posited an all-powerful patriarchy that effectively marginalized and disempowered women until well into the nineteenth century. In a startling revisionist study, Mona Scheuermann refutes these stereotypes, finding that the images presented by eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century novelists are of functioning, capable women whose... more...
