  • Rhetorics of Names and Namingby Star Medzerian Vanguri

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This volume takes up rhetorical approaches to our primarily linguistic understanding of how names work, considering how theories of materiality in rhetoric enrich conceptions of the name as word or symbol and help explain the processes of name bestowal, accumulation, loss, and theft. Contributors theorize the formation, modification, and recontexualization... more...

    University of Alabama Press 2016; US$ 49.95

    In the past decade, the United States has rapidly deployed militarized drones in theaters of war for surveillance as well as targeted killing.

    Regionalism is a term that has been used to describe many different kinds of phenomena, including political, geographical, architectural, and literary.

  • Shelley's Musicby Paul A. Vatalaro

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 2009. This book argues that the images of and allusions to music in Shelley?s writing demonstrate his attempt to infuse the traditionally masculine word with the traditionally feminine voice and music. This further extends to his even more fundamental desire to integrate the "object voice" with his own subjectivity. For Shelley,... more...

  • Shelley's Styleby William Keach

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 52.95

    First published 1984.

  • Reading Soundsby Sean Zdenek

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 32.00

    Imagine a common movie scene: a hero confronts a villain. Captioning such a moment would at first glance seem as basic as transcribing the dialogue.

Does the villain emit a scream , a grunt , or a howl as he... more...
