  • Literature and Culture in Modern Britainby Clive Bloom; Gary Day

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 77.95

    British culture has changed almost beyond recognition since 1956. Angry young men have been displaced by Yuppies, Elvis by the Spice Girls, and meat and two veg by continental cuisine.

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2014; US$ 12.99

    On Late Style examines the work produced by great artists -Beethoven, Thomas Mann, Jean Genet among them - at the end of their lives. Said makes it clear that, rather than the resolution of a lifetime's artistic endeavour, most of the late works discussed are rife with contradiction and almost impenetrable complexity. He helps us see how, though... more...

    Sandstone Press Ltd 2014; US$ 24.78

    Through the centuries doctors have developed not only knowledge and experience, but also an understanding of feelings, emotions and ethical issues: the Science and the Art.  Because of these parallel understandings they can learn the practices they need, and put them to use while ensuring the full involvement of the patient. In this book Professor... more...

  • Tolkien and the Modernistsby Theresa Freda Nicolay

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    The Lord of the Rings rarely makes an appearance in college courses that aim to examine modern British and American literature. Only in recent years have the fantasies of J.R.R.
