  • Poems in Their Placeby Neil Fraistat

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    With essays by 13 leading scholars, this collection establishes the grounds for a new kind of poetics that considers the poetry book itself -- the concept and the material fact -- as an object of interpretation. The authors argue that the decisions poets make about the presentation of their works play a meaningful role in the poetic process and therefore... more...

  • The Work of Self-Representationby Ivy Schweitzer

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    In The Work of Self-Representation Ivy Schweitzer examines early American poetry through the critical lens of gender. Her concern is not the inclusion of female writers into the canon; rather, she analyzes how the metaphors of "woman" and "feminine" function in Puritan religious and literary discourse to represent both the "otherness" of spiritual... more...

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 29.99

    Annemarie Schimmel, one of the world's foremost authorities on Persian literature, provides a comprehensive introduction to the complicated and highly sophisticated system of rhetoric and imagery used by the poets of Iran, Ottoman Turkey, and Muslim India.

  • The Look of Thingsby Carsten Strathausen

    The University of North Carolina Press 2003; US$ 29.99

    Examining the relationship between German poetry, philosophy, and visual media around 1900, Carsten Strathausen argues that the poetic works of Rainer Maria Rilke, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and Stephan George focused on the visible gestalt of language as a means of competing aesthetically with the increasing popularity and "reality effect" of photography... more...

  • W.B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, and the Poetry of Paradiseby Sean Pryor

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Emphasizing the interplay of aesthetic forms and religious modes, Sean Pryor's ambitious study takes up the endlessly reiterated longing for paradise that features throughout the works of W. B. Yeats and Ezra Pound. Yeats and Pound define poetry in terms of paradise and paradise in terms of poetry, Pryor suggests, and these complex interconnections... more...

  • Tragic Coleridgeby Chris Murray

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    To Samuel Taylor Coleridge, tragedy was not solely a literary mode, but a philosophy to interpret the history that unfolded around him. Tragic Coleridge explores the tragic vision of existence that Coleridge derived from Classical drama, Shakespeare, Milton and contemporary German thought. Coleridge viewed the hardships of the Romantic period, like... more...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    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...

  • Shelley and the Musico-Poetics of Romanticismby Jessica K. Quillin

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Addressing a gap in Shelley studies, Jessica K. Quillin explores the poet's lifelong interest in music. Quillin connects the trope of music with Shelley's larger formal aesthetic, political, and philosophical concerns, showing that music offers a new critical lens through which to view such familiar Shelleyan concerns as the status of the poetic, figural... more...

  • Women Poets in the Victorian Eraby Fabienne Moine

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 124.95

    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.
