  • Locating the Destituteby Stanka Radovic

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 59.50

    While postcolonial discourse in the Caribbean has drawn attention to colonialism?s impact on space and spatial hierarchy, Stanka Radovi? asks both how ordinary people as "users" of space have been excluded from active and autonomous participation in shaping their daily spatial reality and how they challenge this exclusion. In a comparative interdisciplinary... more...

  • ‘Isn't All This Bloody?'by Trevor Royle

    Birlinn 2014; US$ 10.19

    As in the rest of Britain, the outbreak of hostilities in 1914 was met in Scotland with excitement and relief. In the field of literature too, the initial response was positive. Kailyard fiction and the Celtic Twilight were left behind as artless verses, patriotic articles and short stories flooded into print. But as the war progressed things changed... more...

  • Das Nichts und der Schmerzby Sarina Schnatwinkel

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 56.00

    Die Romane von Bret Easton Ellis erfordern einen starken Magen, lösen Gänsehaut aus - und sind dennoch faszinierend. Nicht umsonst sind sie scharf kritisiert, aber auch umjubelt worden. Was also macht den Reiz der Romane des Skandalautors aus? Sarina Schnatwinkel beantwortet diese Frage, indem sie alle sechs bisher erschienenen Romane von Ellis kritisch... more...

  • Interpretieren nach den »turns«by Claudia Liebrand; Rainer J. Kaus

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 48.00

    Since the 1990s, various »turns« have chased each other around literary criticism. Thus, the »cultural turn«, »performative turn«, »spatial turn«, »iconic turn«, and »philological turn« - to name just a few - have been proclaimed. The volume at hand questions the state of the art of interpretation. What does it mean for the literary scholars to interpret... more...

  • The Symbolist Movement in Literatureby Arthur Symons; Matthew Creasy

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 23.99

    First published in 1899 , The Symbolist Movement in Literature was a highly influential work of criticism and introduced the French Symbolists to an Anglophone readership. Arthur Symons?s interest in writers such as Verlaine and Mallarmé puts him at the heart of contemporary debates about Decadence and Symbolism in fin-de-siècle literature, but... more...

  • Ex(tra)territorialby Didier Lassalle; Dirk Weissmann

    Editions Rodopi 2014; US$ 88.00

    As a judicial concept dating back to the 17th century, the term ex(tra)territoriality has long excited the interest of scholars and writers who have, since the 20th century, not hesitated to appropriate the notion, widening and transforming it in the process. This transfer to the field of humanities has opened a new space of reflection, a space for... more...

  • Topographien der Kindheitby Caroline Roeder

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 66.00

    The places and spaces of childhood and youth are remembered and imagined in literary and media presentations. The current topographical studies open up new prospects for the spatial exploration of these childhood landscapes. The articles in this volume survey this basic research terrain, investigating child and adolescent spatial structures from literary,... more...

  • Tragik der Freiheitby Thomas Assheuer

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 46.00

    Botho Strauß macht aus seinen politischen Vorlieben kein Geheimnis: Der Schriftsteller bekennt sich zur intellektuellen Rechten und verachtet die »Massenöffentlichkeit« der »Massendemokratie«. Dennoch lohnt ein zweiter Blick auf seine frühen Theater- und Prosastücke, denn diese handeln von einer seltsamen Paradoxie: Während in liberalen Gesellschaften... more...

  • Das Individuum im transkulturellen Raumby Kristina Lahl

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 80.00

    Die Neuverortung des Individuums zwischen Nationalitäten, Kulturen, Religionen und politischen Ideologien ist das zentrale Thema der deutschböhmischen und deutschmährischen Literatur nach dem Zusammenbruch des Habsburgerreichs 1918. Kristina Lahl zeichnet mithilfe einer interdisziplinären Untersuchung der historischen und sozialen Situation, einschlägiger... more...
