    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 105.00

    This book offers new analyzes of canonical texts, contextualizations of Romantic forms in relation to war, nationalism and empire, reassessments of neglected and marginalized writers and explorations of the relationship between form and reader.

  • Queering Gothic in the Romantic Ageby Dr Max Fincher

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 95.00

    This book argues that Gothic writing of the Romantic period is queer. Using a variety of texts, it argues that contemporary queer theory can help us to read the obliqueness and invisibility of same-sex desire in a culture of vigilance. Fincher shows how the Gothic's ambivalent gender politics destabilize heteronormative narratives. more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 120.00

    Anti-Semitism and British Gothic Literature examines the Gothic's engagement with the Jewish Question and British national identity over the course of a century.

  • Staging Early Modern Romanceby Mary Ellen Lamb; Valerie Wayne

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 49.95

    This collection recovers the continuities between three forms of romance that have often been separated from one another in critical discourse: early modern prose fiction, the dramatic romances staged in England during the 1570s and 1580s, and Shakespeare?s late plays. more...

  • Romancing Godby Lynn S. Neal

    The University of North Carolina Press 2006; US$ 23.00

    In the world of the evangelical romance novel, sex and desire are mitigated by an omnipresent third party--the divine. Thus romance is not just an encounter between lovers, but a triangle of affection: man, woman, and God. Although this literature is often disparaged by scholars and pastors alike, inspirational fiction plays a unique and important... more...

  • Contemporary Gothicby Catherine Spooner

    Reaktion Books 2007; US$ 19.95

    Spooner traces the emergence of the Gothic subculture over the past few decades and examines the various aspects of contemporary society that revolve around the grotesque, abject, and artificial. more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2007; US$ 124.95

    Covering the entire field of Romanticism from its eighteenth-century origins in the writing of William Cowper to late-twentieth-century manifestations in the work of Wallace Stevens, this collection is an original and much-needed intervention in Romantic studies, bringing together the contextual awareness of recent historicist scholarship with the... more...

  • A Philosophical Enquiry Into the Sublime and Beautifulby Edmund Burke

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 26.95

    This is one of the most important works of aesthetics ever written. Whilst many writers have taken up their pen to write of ?the beautiful?, Burke?s subject here was that quality he uniquely distinguished as ?the sublime? ? an all-consuming force beyond beauty that compelled terror as much as rapture in all who beheld it. The Routledge Classics edition... more...
