Literary history and criticism

  • Sir Henry Neville, Alias William Shakespeareby Mark Bradbeer; John Casson

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

    Shakspere's history plays are more than dramatized history lessons. They explore contemporary dangers inherent in royal succession at a time when Elizabeth I decreed that mere discussion of who would inherit the throne was treason. The plays were political and therefore dangerous. Yet William Shakspere from Stratford-upon-Avon was never arrested... more...

  • Reading and the Victoriansby Matthew Bradley; Juliet John

    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.

  • Textual Visionby Timothy Erwin

    Bucknell University Press 2015; US$ 94.99

    Textual Vision offers a new and original perspective on Enlightenment visual culture as a contested area of representation, and its discussions of major authors like Alexander Pope, Samuel Johnson, and Jane Austen are both learned and persuasive.

  • 30 Great Myths about the Romanticsby Duncan Wu

    Wiley 2015; US$ 74.95

    “Wu is not a scholar who trades in faddish or modish opinion, and as its title implies, this is by its very nature an exercise in controversy and debate. The book represents a triumph of individual scholarship over what is claimed as often flawed, albeit consensual, critical opinion. Wu’s fluid, readable prose is accessible to all, and... more...

  • Shakespeare's Authentic Performance Textsby Graham Watts

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

    When we pick up a copy of a Shakespeare play, we assume that we hold in our hands an original record of his writing. We don't. Present-day printings are an editor's often subjective version of the script. Around 25 percent of any Shakespeare play will have been altered, and this creates an enormous amount of confusion. The only authentic edition... more...
