  • Memorializing Animals during the Romantic Periodby Chase Pielak

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    Early nineteenth-century British literature is overpopulated with images of dead and deadly animals, as Chase Pielak observes in his study of animal encounters in the works of Charles and Mary Lamb, John Clare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, and William Wordsworth. These encounters, Pielak suggests, coincide with anxieties over living alongside... more...

  • Belonging and Estrangement in the Poetry of Philip Larkin, R.S. Thomas and Charles Causleyby Rory Waterman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Focusing on the significance of place, connection and relationship in three poets who are seldom considered in conjunction, Rory Waterman argues that Philip Larkin, R.S. Thomas and Charles Causley epitomize many of the emotional and societal shifts and mores of their age. Waterman looks at the foundations underpinning their poetry; the attempts of... more...

  • Keats, Modesty and Masturbationby Rachel Schulkins

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Examining John Keats?s reworking of the romance genre, Rachel Schulkins argues that he is responding to and critiquing the ideals of feminine modesty and asexual femininity advocated in the early nineteenth century. Through close readings of Isabella; or the Pot of Basil, The Eve of St. Agnes, Lamia and ?La Belle Dame sans Merci,? Schulkins offers... more...

  • Authority in Crisis in French Literature, 1850?1880by Seth Whidden

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    By the 1850s, the expansion of printing and distribution technologies provided writers with more readers and literary outlets than ever before, while the ever-changing political contexts occasioned by the revolutions of 1830 and 1848 brought about differing degrees of political, social, and literary censure and pressure. Seth Whidden examines crises... more...

  • Archaeopoeticsby Mandy Bloomfield

    University of Alabama Press 2016; US$ 44.95

    Archaeopoetics explores ?archaeological poetry,? ground-breaking and experimental writing by innovative poets whose work opens up broad new avenues by which contemporary readers may approach the past, illuminating the dense web of interconnections often lost in traditional historiography.   Critic Mandy Bloomfield traces the emergence of a... more...

  • Early Modern Poetics in Melville and Poeby William E. Engel

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Bringing to bear his expertise in the early modern emblem tradition, William E. Engel traces a series of self-reflective organizational schemes associated with baroque artifice in the work of Herman Melville and Edgar Allan Poe. While other scholars have remarked on the influence of seventeenth-century literature on Melville and Poe, this is the first... more...

  • Thackeray in Timeby Richard Salmon; Alice Crossley

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    An intense fascination with the experience of time has long been recognised as a distinctive feature of the writing of William Makepeace Thackeray (1811?1863). This collection of essays, however, represents the first sustained critical examination of Thackeray's 'time consciousness' in all its varied manifestations. Encompassing the full chronological... more...

  • Browning, Victorian Poetics and the Romantic Legacyby Britta Martens

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Taking an original approach to Robert Browning's poetics, Britta Martens focuses on a corpus of relatively neglected poems in Browning's own voice in which he reflects on his poetry, his self-conceptualization and his place in the poetic tradition. She analyzes his work in relation to Romanticism, Victorian reactions to the Romantic legacy, and wider... more...

  • Ten Poems to Change Your Lifeby Roger Housden

    Potter/TenSpeed/Harmony 2007; US$ 16.00

    This is a dangerous book. Great poetry calls into question not less than everything. It dares us to break free from the safe strategies of the cautious mind. It opens us to pain and joy and delight. It amazes, startles, pierces, and transforms us. It can lead to communion and grace. Through the voices of ten inspiring poets and his own reflections,... more...

  • Reading Network Fictionby David Ciccoricco

    University of Alabama Press 2008; US$ 34.95

    The marriage of narrative and the computer dates back to the 1980s, with the hypertext experiments of luminaries such as Judy Malloy and Michael Joyce. What has been variously called "hypertext fiction," "literary hypertext," and "hyperfiction" has surely surrendered any claim to newness in the 21st century.   David Ciccoricco establishes the... more...
