    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2006; US$ 42.95

    What do "raves" have to do with eighteenth-century Romanticism, or the latest communication technologies with historical ideas about language, media, and culture?

  • Blake and the New Age (Routledge Revivals)by Kathleen Raine

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 46.95

    First published in 1979, this is a very welcome reissue of Kathleen Raine's seminal study of William Blake - England?s only prophet. He challenged with extraordinary vigour the premises which now underline much of Western civilization, hitting hard at the ideas of a naive materialist philosophy which, even in his own day, was already eating at the... more...

    University of Iowa Press 1998; US$ 21.00

    Drawing widely on contemporary theory—particularly revisionist views of Freud such as those offered by Lacan and Kristeva—this volume ranges from the well-known Gothic horrors of Edgar Allan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne to the popular fantasies of Stephen King and the postmodern visions of Kathy Acker.

  • Necromanticismby Paul Westover

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 95.00

    Necromanticism is a study of literary pilgrimage: readers' compulsion to visit literary homes, landscapes, and (especially) graves during the long Romantic period. The book draws on the histories of tourism and literary genres to highlight Romanticism's recourse to the dead in its reading, writing, and canon-making practices. more...

  • The Irish Fairy Taleby Vito Carrassi; Kevin Wren

    John Cabot University Press 2012; US$ 32.99

    Through an original analysis of its structure and dynamics, the fairy tale ceases to be one of the many genres of fantastic narrative and rises to become a category, a universal modality both of the storytelling and of a world vision. The objective is to render the fairy tale a sort of emblematic location, where the study of narrative texts integrates... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 114.95

    Writing Wales explores representations of Wales in English and Welsh literatures written across three tumultuous centuries, from Wales' union with England in 1536, to its industrialisation in the early nineteenth-century.

  • African American Gothicby Maisha L. Wester

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 95.00

    This book offers a new critique of contemporary African-American fiction and its intersections with and critiques of the Gothic genre. Wester reveals the myriad ways writers manipulate the genre to critique the gothic's traditional racial ideologies and the mechanisms that were appropriated and re-articulated as a useful vehicle for the enunciation... more...
