    Jorge Manrique was the greatest poet of fifteenth-century Castile and one of the three or four greatest in Spanish literature. Frank A.

After presenting the biographical and historical context of Manrique's poetry, Domínguez... more...

  • Passage to the Centerby Daniel Tobin

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney, author of nine collections of poetry and three volumes of influential essays, is regarded by many as the greatest Irish poet since Yeats.

  • Pious Brief Narrative in Medieval Castilian and Galician Verseby John E. Keller

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 25.00

    "Brief narratives," or medieval precursors to the modern short story, are compositions couched in the form of a tale of reasonable short length. They began with writings in Latin and, eventually, made their way into the vernacular languages of Europe. They include the fable, the apologue, the exemplum, the saint's life, the miracle, the biography,... more...

  • Poetry Of Discoveryby Andrew Debicki

  • Sustainable Poetryby Leonard M. Scigaj

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 50.00

    Focusing on the work of A.R. Ammons, Wendell Berry, W.S. Merwin, and Gary Snyder, author Leonard Scigaj shows that just as a sustainable society does not depreciate its resource base, so a sustainable poetry does not restrict interest to language. Over the past thirty years many poets have shown an increasing sensitivity to ecological thinking. But... more...

  • Heroism in the New Black Poetryby D.H. Melhem

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 25.00

    D.H. Melhem's clear introductions and frank interviews provide insight into the contemporary social and political consciousness of six acclaimed poets: Amiri Baraka, Gwendolyn Brooks, Jayne Cortez, Haki R.

  • The Mystery of Iniquityby William H. Shurr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This book is the first to consider the work of Herman Melville's later years as a whole, in the light of his life and reading during those years and of the intellectual and artistic ambience of the later nineteenth century. With the exception of Billy Budd , almost all of the writing Melville produced between 1857 and 1891 is poetry. Until now little... more...

  • The Braided Dreamby Randolph Paul Runyon

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Robert Penn Warren's reputation as a poet, though always considerable, has soared in the last decade, as indicated by his recent selection as America's first poet laureate. The Braided Dream is one of the first book-length studies of the poetry that has led to Warren's recent rise to eminence and the first to consider his final collection, Altitudes... more...

  • Then and Nowby Floyd C. Watkins

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Taking a new approach to the study of Robert Penn Warren's imposing and still growing poetic canon, Floyd C. Watkins has found in the poems what he describes as a "poetic autobiography" unparalleled in American letters. Drawing on interviews with Warren, members of his family, and contemporaries from his hometown, but keeping the poetry itself constantly... more...

  • The Miltonic Momentby J. Martin FISHMAN

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    Milton's poems invariably depict the decisive instant in a story, a moment of crisis that takes place just before the action undergoes a dramatic change of course. Such instants look backward to a past that is about to be superseded or repudiated and forward, at the same time, to a future that will immediately begin to unfold. Martin Evans identifies... more...
