  • Copiaby Erika Meitner

  • Millennial Teethby Dan Albergotti

    Southern Illinois University Press 2014; US$ 15.95

    Both bleak and bewildering, Millennial Teeth , the visceral new collection by poet Dan Albergotti, maps a contradictory journey filled with longing and dread, cynicism and hope. A heady mix of traditional forms and more experimental verse, Albergotti’s volume lures readers inexorably into the poet’s obsessions with mystery, doubt, ephemerality,... more...

  • Spansby Elizabeth Seydel Morgan

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 9.95

    Through the poems in Spans, Elizabeth Seydel Morgan examines life from the perspective of one who appreciates the complexities of the world but finds pleasure in events as predictable as the changing of the seasons or as uncomplicated as a visit to an art museum. Morgan accepts the inevitability of change but mourns the loss of "what we don't know... more...

  • Irmgard Keun ? Zeit und Zitatby Beate Kennedy

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The writings of Irmgard Keun (1905?1982) reflect satirically on their times: the Weimar Republic, the Nazi dictatorship, exile, and the postwar period. This study, which is the first exploration of Keun?s oeuvre as a whole, engages in close narratological analysis, relates the texts to each other, and includes previously unpublished material. It sets... more...

  • Francophone African Poetry and Dramaby Richard J. Gray II

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    Scholars examining literature from former French colonies sometimes view it wrongly as simply an outgrowth of colonial literature. By suggesting new ways to understand the multiple voices present, this book explores how Francophone African poetry and theatre in particular, since the 1960s, constitute both an organic cultural product and a reflection... more...

  • Wall, Watchtower, and Pencil Stubby John R. Carpenter

    Yucca Publishing 2014; US$ 24.95

    How World War II became central in our culture. Even as World War II raged on, contemporary writers were riveted by its every twist and turn. One of the war?s most fascinating features was that it was subject to constant change, surprises, and fate reversal. It ensured that wartime writers, who did not yet know of its outcome, adopted points of... more...

  • Broken Cupby Margaret Gibson

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 9.95

    Broken Cup brings breathtaking eloquence to what Margaret Gibson describes as "traveling the Way of Alzheimer's" with her husband, poet David McKain. After his initial and tentative diagnosis, Gibson suspended her writing for two years; but then poetry returned, and the creative process became the lightning rod that grounded her and presented a path... more...

  • Persian Lettersby Montesquieu; Raymond N. MacKenzie

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2014; US$ 13.50

    A classic work of the European Enlightenment--and one of the most popular, if scandalous, in its day--the Persian Letters captures, in an engaging epistolary format, the transformational spirit of the era. Amid an ongoing tale rife with sex, violence, and wit, the work addresses a diverse range of topics from human nature and the origins of society,... more...

  • A Woman Without a Countryby Eavan Boland

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    The poems in Eavan Boland?s new collection consider questions of inheritance and identity, of what is handed down and what is lost. Boland?s poems are acts of preservation: they are aware of the significance of objects, memories, words, in keeping alive what we would otherwise ‘lose / without thinking?. At the same time, they are a holding to account,... more...
