  • After Southern Modernismby Matthew Guinn

    University Press of Mississippi 2011; US$ 25.00

    The literature of the contemporary South might best be understood for its discontinuity with the literary past.

This sweeping study of the literary... more...

    The freedom to go anywhere and become anyone has profoundly shaped our national psyche. Transforming our sense of place and identity--whether in terms of social and economic status, or race and ethnicity, or gender and sexuality?American mobility is perhaps nowhere more vividly captured than in the image of the open road. From pioneer trails... more...

  • Authorship and Audienceby Stephen Railton

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Stephen Railton's study of the American Renaissance proposes a fresh way of conceiving the writer as a performing artist and the text as an enactment of the drama of its own performance.
