    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    This book has a double purpose: to compare the literary projects, theories, and careers of Balzac and Henry James, and to develop a theory of realism that can account for their unabashed mimetic intentions and for their novels' sophisticated textuality.

  • Fictions of Form in American Poetryby Stephen Cushman

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    In the 1830s Alexis de Tocqueville prophesied that American writers would slight, even despise, form--that they would favor the sensational over rational order. He suggested that this attitude was linked to a distinct concept of democracy in America. Exposing the inaccuracies of such claims when applied to poetry, Stephen Cushman maintains that American... more...

    In an age of authorless, contextless, deconstructed texts, Francis-NoŽl Thomas argues that it is time to re-examine a fundamental but neglected concept of literature: writing is an action whose agent is an individual.

  • Authorship and Audienceby Stephen Railton

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 31.50

    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.

  • The Myth of Emptiness and the New American Literature of Placeby Wendy Harding

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 47.50

    From the moment the first English-speaking explorers and settlers arrived on the North American continent, many have described its various locations and environments as empty. Indeed, much of American national history and culture is bound up with the idea that parts of the landscape are empty and thus open for colonization, settlement, economic improvement,... more...

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 47.50

    For several years just before and just after his 1860 edition of† Leaves of Grass† appeared, Walt Whitman regularly frequented Pfaff?s beer cellar in downtown Manhattan.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00
