    First published in 1987, this is an introductory study of the most widely read Canadian women novelists of the 1970s and 1980s. At its centre lies the question of how the search for a distinctive cultural identity relates to the need for a national cultural identity in the post-colonial era. Coral Ann Howells argues that Canadian women?s fiction throughout... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    Tracing the developing modernist aesthetic in the thought and writings of James Joyce, Dorothy Richardson and Virginia Woolf, Deborah Parsons considers the cultural, social and personal influences upon the three writers.

  • ‘Isn't All This Bloody?'by Trevor Royle

    Birlinn 2014; US$ 10.19

    As in the rest of Britain, the outbreak of hostilities in 1914 was met in Scotland with excitement and relief. In the field of literature too, the initial response was positive. Kailyard fiction and the Celtic Twilight were left behind as artless verses, patriotic articles and short stories flooded into print. But as the war progressed things changed... more...

  • V. S. Naipaul (Routledge Revivals)by Peter Hughes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1988, Peter Hughes explores the work of V. S. Naipaul, and the interplay of fictional and non-fictional patters in what is his obsessive vision of human life. Hughes shows how Naipaul?s narratives pair off histories and novels, travel-writing and psycho-biography, reinforcing one another and Naipaul?s vision of ?a world undoing... more...

  • The Observing Self (Routledge Revivals)by Graham Good

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1988, this title is a study of the essay as a literary genre, not just in terms of its general intellectual and literary history, but as an exploration of the creative possibilities of the form. The rise of the essay is discussed in relation to the rise of the novel and the emergence of empiricism in science, but the main focus... more...

  • Fatherhood, Authority, and British Reading Culture, 1831-1907by Melissa Shields Jenkins

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 104.95

    In analyzing the evolution of patriarchal authority in nineteenth-century culture, Melissa Shields Jenkins argues that Victorian novelists found new models within non-narrative forms such as conduct books, biography, religious manuals, political speeches and professional writing in the fields of history and science. Jenkins’s book contributes... more...

  • Caribbean Literature in Englishby Louis James

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 88.95

    Caribbean Literature in English places its subject in its precise regional context. The `Caribbean', generally considered as one area, is highly discrete in its topography, race and languages, including mainland Guyana, the Atlantic island of Barbados, the Lesser Antilles, Trinidad, and Jamaica, whose size and history gave it an early sense of separate... more...

  • Hell-Bent: Australia's leap into the Great Warby Douglas Newton

    Scribe Publications 2014; US$ 24.99

    Most histories of Australia?s Great War rush their readers into the trenches. This history is very different. For the first time, it examines events closely, even hour-by-hour, in both Britain and Australia during the last days of peace in July?August 1914. London?s choice for war was a very close-run thing. At the height of the diplomatic crisis... more...
