  • Women Poets in the Victorian Eraby Fabienne Moine

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Examining the place of nature in Victorian women's poetry, Fabienne Moine explores the work of canonical and long-neglected women poets to show the myriad connections between women and nature during the period. At the same time, she challenges essentialist discourses that assume innate affinities between women and the natural world. Rather, Moine shows,... more...

  • Arthur O'Shaughnessy, A Pre-Raphaelite Poet in the British Museumby Jordan Kistler

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Arthur O'Shaughnessy's career as a natural historian in the British Museum, and his consequent preoccupation with the role of work in his life, provides the context with which to reexamine his contributions to Victorian poetry. O'Shaughnessy's engagement with aestheticism, socialism, and Darwinian theory can be traced to his career as a Junior Assistant... more...

  • The Neglected Shelleyby Alan M. Weinberg; Timothy Webb

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    New editions and facsimiles of Percy Bysshe Shelley's works are changing the landscape of Shelley studies by making complete compositions and fragments that have received only limited critical attention readily available to scholars. Building on the work begun in Weinberg and Webb's 2009 volume, The Unfamiliar Shelley, The Neglected Shelley sheds light... more...

  • The Ekphrastic Encounter in Contemporary British Poetry and Elsewhereby David Kennedy

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Examining a wide range of ekphrastic poems, David Kennedy argues that contemporary British poets writing out of both mainstream and avant-garde traditions challenge established critical models of ekphrasis with work that is more complex than representational or counter-representational responses to paintings in museums and galleries. Even when the... more...

  • Decadent Romanticism: 1780-1914by Kostas Boyiopoulos; Mark Sandy

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    For Decadent authors, Romanticism was a source of powerful imaginative revisionism, perversion, transition, and partial negation. But for all these strong Decadent reactions against the period, the cultural phenomenon of Decadence shared with Romanticism a mutual distrust of the philosophy of utilitarianism and the aesthetics of neo-Classicism. Reflecting... more...

  • Romantic Naturalists, Early Environmentalistsby Dewey W. Hall

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In his study of Romantic naturalists and early environmentalists, Dewey W. Hall asserts that William Wordsworth and Ralph Waldo Emerson were transatlantic literary figures who were both influenced by the English naturalist Gilbert White. In Part 1, Hall examines evidence that as Romantic naturalists interested in meteorology, Wordsworth and Emerson... more...

    The study of the full career of an award-winning writer that evolved from traditional to radical more...

  • Memorializing Animals during the Romantic Periodby Chase Pielak

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    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$ 54.95

    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...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    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...
