  • Anglophone Jewish Literatureby Axel Stähler

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    Anglophone Jewish literature is not traditionally numbered among the new literatures in English.

The collection of essays addresses this lack... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 30.00

    This volume charts the most significant changes for a literary history of women in a period that saw the beginnings of a discourse of 'enlightened feminism'.
