    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 105.00

    This book argues that Romantic-era writers used the figure of the minstrel to imagine authorship as a social, responsive enterprise unlike the solitary process portrayed by Romantic myths of the lone genius. Simpson highlights the centrality of the minstrel to many important literary developments from the Romantic era through to the 1840s. more...

    Tracing the use of legal themes in the gothic novel, Bridget M.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 124.95

    Lisa Fletcher moves the debate about the value and appeal of heterosexual romance onto new ground, testing the claims of speech-act and performativity theorists on everything from popular classics by Georgette Heyer, to 'bodice rippers,' to historical fiction by John Fowles and A.
