  • The Laughter of Foxesby Keith Sagar

  • The Neglected Shelleyby Alan M. Weinberg; Timothy Webb

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 134.95

    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.

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

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 109.95

    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$ 104.95

    In his study of Romantic naturalists and early environmentalists, Dewey W.

  • Symposium of the Wholeby Jerome Rothenberg; Diane Rothenberg

    University of California Press 2016; US$ 39.95

    Symposium of the Whole traces a discourse on poetry and culture that has profoundly influenced the art of our time, with precedents going back two centuries and more. Beginning with a reassertion of the complexity of poetry among peoples long labeled ?primitive? and ?savage,? many recent poets have sought to base a new poetics over the fullest range... more...

  • 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...

    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.
