    Oxford University Press, USA 2011; US$ 149.99

    After its heyday in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, naturalism, a genre that typically depicts human beings as the product of biological and environmental forces over which they have little control, was supplanted by modernism, a genre in which writers experimented with innovations in form and content. In the last decade, the movement... more...

    University of Virginia Press 2009; US$ 55.00

    University of Virginia Press 2001; US$ 65.00

    From the earliest texts of the colonial period to works contemporary with Emancipation, African American literature has been a dialogue across color lines, and a medium through which black writers have been able to exert considerable authority on both sides of that racial demarcation. Dickson D. Bruce argues that contrary to prevailing perceptions... more...

  • Plotting Terrorby Margaret Scanlan

    University of Virginia Press 2001; US$ 55.00

    Is literature dangerous? In the romantic view, writers were rebels--Shelley's "unacknowledged legislators of mankind"--poised to change the world. In relation to twentieth-century literature, however, such a view becomes suspect. By looking at a range of novels about terrorism, Plotting Terror raises the possibility that the writer's relationship... more...

    University of Virginia Press 2001; US$ 55.00
