    Durch die Werke Franz Kafkas ist so manche Prager Straßenecke in die Welt­literatur eingegangen. Doch was auf den ersten Blick als Lokalkolorit erscheint, ist mehr als das. Marie Vachenauer deckt auf, dass sich Der Proceß, wohl eines der bekanntesten Romanfragmente Kafkas, vermutlich auf einen historisch verbürgten Kriminalfall bezieht. Minutiös analysiert... more...

    Skyhorse Publishing 2014; US$ 9.95

    Revered as one of America?s greatest humorists and author of the “Great American Novel? ( The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ), the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens—more commonly known as Mark Twain—resonate as strongly today as they did when he wrote them more than a century ago. A close friend of Nikola Tesla and heralded by William Faulkner as... more...

  • The Glory of Arthurby Jeffrey John Dixon

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    Starting with William Blake's lost painting The Ancient Britons, this book shows how the visionary artist and poet reworked the Matter of Britain--the corpus of legends presenting an alternative history of Britain--into his own mythology.

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    This book makes connections between mythopoeic fantasy--works which engage the numinous--and the critical apparatuses of ecocriticism and posthumanism. Drawing from the ideas of Rudolf Otto in The Idea of the Holy, mythopoeic fantasy is a means of subverting normative modes of perception to both encounter the numinous and to challenge the perceptions... more...

    It is nearly two centuries since the first quarto of Hamlet was rediscovered, yet there is still no consensus about its relationship to the second quarto. Indeed, the first quarto, the least frequently read Hamlet, has been dismissed as "corrupt," "inferior" or like "a mutilated corpse," even though in performance it has... more...
