    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    During a period when the idea of fatherhood was in flux and individual fathers sought to regain a cohesive collective identity, debates related to a father?s authority were negotiated and resolved through competing documents.

  • James Joyce's 'Work in Progress'by Dirk Van Hulle

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The text of Finnegans Wake is not as monolithic as it might seem. It grew out of a set of short vignettes, sections and fragments.

Suggesting that the characteristic... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 54.95
