  • Divine and Poetic Freedom in the Renaissanceby Ullrich Langer

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    The closely related problems of creativity and freedom have long been seen as emblematic of the Renaissance. Ullrich Langer, however, argues that French and Italian Renaissance literature can be profitably reconceived in terms of the way these problems are treated in late medieval scholasticism in general and nominalist theology in particular. Looking... more...

  • Into the Breachby Thomas Trezise

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Arguing that Beckett's understanding of subjectivity cannot be reduced to that of phenomenology or existential humanism, Thomas Trezise offers a major reinterpretation of Beckett in light of Freud and such post-modernists as Bataille, Blanchot, and Derrida. Through extended comparisons of Beckett's trilogy of novels with the writings of these thinkers,... more...

  • Paul Valery's "Album des Vers Anciens"by Suzanne Nash

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.50

    Questioning the view that the work is not representative of the poet's mature accomplishment, Suzanne Nash argues that the revisionary process involved in its creation led Valery to reflect on problems fundamental to poetic production and thus provided inspiration for all his later poetry.

  • The Smile of Truthby Annette H. Tomarken

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 46.00

    To teach the truth smilingly was, during the Renaissance, a frequently expressed goal among prose writers and poets such as Erasmus, Berni, Ronsard, Rabelais, and du Bellay, who adopted an ironic posture within their mock encomia in order to refer the reader beyond the realm of the literary structure. In this book Annette Tomarken reconstructs the... more...

  • Extravagant Narrativesby Elizabeth Jane MacArthur

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.00

    Challenging the view of epistolary narrative as a faulty precursor to the nineteenth-century realist novel, Elizabeth MacArthur argues that the openness and flexibility that characterize correspondences, both real and fictional, reflect the preoccupations of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Her readings of the Lettres portugaises, Mme... more...

  • Ornament, Fantasy, and Desire in Nineteenth-Century French Literatureby Rae Beth Gordon

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.50

    In this examination of the role of ornament in nineteenth-century French literature, Rae Beth Gordon shows that ornament, far from being a simple accessory, raises problems that are at the very heart of aesthetic experience: limits and their transgression, illusion and seduction, pleasure and tension, harmony and confusion, excess and marginality.... more...

  • Exemplumby John D. Lyons

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 41.50

    Examples, crucial links between discourse and society's view of reality, have until now been largely neglected in literary criticism. In the first book-length study of the rhetoric of example, John Lyons situates this figure by comparing it with more frequently studied tropes such as metaphor and synecdoche, discusses meanings of the terms example... more...
