    Ecocriticism has steadily gained footing within the larger arena of early modern scholarship, and with the publication of well over a dozen monographs, essay collections, and special journal issues, literary studies looks increasingly ‚??green‚??; yet the field lacks a straightforward, easy-to-use guide to do with reading and teaching early modern... more...

    Through its many and varied manifestations, authority has frequently played a role in the communication process in both manuscript and print.

  • Writing What You Knowby Meg Files

    Allworth Press 2016; US$ 16.99

  • Fatherhood, Authority, and British Reading Culture, 1831-1907by Melissa Shields Jenkins

    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. Several of these sections, which James Joyce confidently claimed would "fuse of themselves", are still recognizable in the text of Finnegans Wake. And while they are undeniably integrated very skillfully, they also function... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Envisioning today?s readers as poised between an impossible attempt to read texts as their original readers experienced them and an awareness of our own temporal moment, Simon Dentith complicates traditional prejudices against hindsight to approach issues of interpretation and historicity in nineteenth-century literature. Suggesting that the characteristic... more...
