  • Language and Decadence in the Victorian Fin de Siecleby Linda C. Dowling

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.00

    As Dr. Dowling demonstrates, literary Decadence in this linguistic and cultural context was to reveal itself as a mode of Romanticism demoralized by philology. Decadent writers like Paler and Wilde and Beardslcy sought to preserve a few precious fragments from what they imagined--and paradoxically welcomed--as England's imminent decline and fall.... more...

  • Popular Literature, Authorship and the Occult in Late Victorian Britainby Andrew McCann

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 76.00

    A study of the representation of the occult in late-Victorian popular fiction, exploring different perceptions of authorship and creativity. more...

  • Verbal Dueling in Heroic Narrativeby Wards Parks

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 31.00

    This work is a rare cross-cultural study of one of the most universal dialogic genres: heroic flyting, or the verbal duel in which the heroes, prior to physical combat, make boastful claims that must be backed up through action in the arena of public contesting. Long recognized as an elemental behavioral paradigm in human consciousness, the contest... more...

  • Graham Greeneby Robert Hoskins

    Taylor and Francis 1999; US$ 120.00

    This study reveals Greene in a dual role as author, one who projects literary experience into his view of life and subsequently projects both his experience and its "literary" interpretation into his fiction. more...

  • The Victorian Novelby Louis James

    Wiley 2008; US$ 125.95

    This inspiring survey challenges conventional ways of viewing the Victorian novel. Provides time maps and overviews of historical and social contexts. Considers the relationship between the Victorian novel and historical, religious and bibliographic writing.

  • James Joyce and the Language of Historyby Robert Spoo

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 109.99

    History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake. Stephen Dedalus's famous complaint articulates a characteristic modern attitude toward the perceived burden of the past. As Robert Spoo shows in this study, Joyce's creative achievement, from the time of his sojourn in Rome in 1906-07 to the completion of Ulysses in 1922, cannot be understood... more...

  • Perils of the Nightby Eugenia C. DeLamotte

    Oxford University Press 1990; US$ 109.99

    This book argues that the source of Gothic terror is anxiety about the boundaries of the self: a double fear of separateness and unity that has had a special significance for women writers and readers. Exploring the psychological, religious, and epistemological context of this anxiety, DeLamotte argues that the Gothic vision focuses simultaneously... more...

  • Amnesiac Selvesby Nicholas Dames

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 49.99

    With Joyce, Proust, and Faulkner in mind, we have come to understand the novel as a form with intimate ties to the impulses and processes of memory. This study contends that this common perception is an anachronism that distorts our view of the novel. Based on an investigation of representative novels, Amnesiac Selves shows that the Victorian novel... more...

  • Modernism and the Theater of Censorshipby Adam Parkes

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 134.99

    Since the original publication of this classic book in 1979, Roosevelt's foreign policy has come under attack on three main points: Was Roosevelt responsible for the confrontation with Japan that led to the attack at Pearl Harbor? Did Roosevelt "give away" Eastern Europe to Stalin and the U.S.S.R. at Yalta? And, most significantly, did Roosevelt abandon... more...

  • Sisters in Timeby Susan Morgan

    Oxford University Press 1989; US$ 110.99

    Asking why the 19th-century British novel features heroines, and how and why it features "feminine heroism," Susan Morgan traces the relationship between fictional depictions of gender and Victorian ideas of history and progress. Morgan approaches gender in selected 19th-century British novels as an imaginative category, accessible to authors and characters... more...
