    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 18.94

    'I would have a poet able bodied, fond of talking, a reader of the newspapers, capable of pity and laughter, informed in economics, appreciative of women, involved in personal relationships, actively interested in politics, susceptible to physical impressions.'

  • An Atmospherics of the City: Baudelaire and the Poetics of Noiseby Ross Chambers

    Fordham University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    What happens to poetic beauty when history turns the poet from one who contemplates natural beauty and the sublime to one who attempts to reconcile the practice of art with the hustle and noise of the city?

  • Science and Poetryby Mary Midgley

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 22.95

    Crude materialism, reduction of mind to body, extreme individualism. All products of a 17th century scientific inheritance which looks at the parts of our existence at the expense of the whole.

  • 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... more...

  • The Point Is To Change Itby Jerome McGann

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 34.95
