    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    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$ 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...

    Liverpool University Press 2007; US$ 72.99

    The paradigmatic figure of twentieth-century history is the 'displaced person', a concept which emerged from the demographic migrations, deportations and genocidal purges that accompanied two world wars, the destruction and construction of nation states and the restructuring of the global order which they occasioned. These processes almost inevitably... more...
