    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.00

    Most contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and linguists think of language as basically a means by which speakers reveal their thoughts to others.

  • Framing Authorityby Mary Thomas Crane

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    Writers in sixteenth-century England often kept commonplace books in which to jot down notable fragments encountered during reading or conversation, but few critics have fully appreciated the formative influence this activity had on humanism. Focusing on the discursive practices of "gathering" textual fragments and "framing" or forming, arranging,... more...

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.50

    Making a Match examines the various options posed at every stage of English wooing, together with the presentation of these protocols in the plays of Shakespeare.
