Poetry

  • My Grandmother's Glass Eyeby Craig Raine

    Atlantic Books 2016; US$ 14.57

    'By poetry we - we the masses - mean something vague, something untrue, something uplifting, something beautiful, something so eloquent it isn't for everyday. The word "poetry" is up there with "soul". And I am against it.' My Grandmother's Glass Eye deploys its considerable learning, its intelligent expertise, wittily, memorably. It is an... more...

  • The Idea of Infancy in Nineteenth-Century British Poetryby D.B. Ruderman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book radically refigures the conceptual and formal significance of childhood in nineteenth-century English poetry. By theorizing infancy as a poetics as well as a space of continual beginning, Ruderman shows how it allowed poets access to inchoate, uncanny, and mutable forms of subjectivity and art. While recent historicist studies have documented... 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...

  • Keats, Modesty and Masturbationby Rachel Schulkins

    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. Through close readings of Isabella; or the Pot of Basil, The Eve of St. Agnes, Lamia and ?La Belle Dame sans Merci,? Schulkins offers... more...

  • Milton and the Politics of Public Speechby Helen Lynch

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 119.95

    Using Hannah Arendt?s account of the Greek polis to explain Milton?s fascination with the idea of public speech, this study reveals what is distinctive about his conception of a godly, republican oratory and poetics. The book shows how Milton uses rhetorical theory - its ideas, techniques and image patterns - to dramatise the struggle between ?good?... more...

  • Milton among the Puritansby Catherine Gimelli Martin

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Solidly grounded in Milton's prose works and the long history of Milton scholarship, Milton among the Puritans: The Case for Historical Revisionism challenges many received ideas about Milton's brand of Christianity, philosophy, and poetry. It does so chiefly by retracing his history as a great "Puritan poet" and reexamining the surprisingly tenuous... more...

  • 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...

  • Authority in Crisis in French Literature, 1850?1880by Seth Whidden

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    By the 1850s, the expansion of printing and distribution technologies provided writers with more readers and literary outlets than ever before, while the ever-changing political contexts occasioned by the revolutions of 1830 and 1848 brought about differing degrees of political, social, and literary censure and pressure. Seth Whidden examines crises... more...

  • Overheard Voicesby Ann Keniston

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 48.95

    Overheard Voices examines poetic address and in particular apostrophe (the address of absent or inanimate others) in the work of four post-World War II American poets, with a focus on loss, desire, figuration, audience, and subjectivity. By approaching these crucial issues from an unexpected angle--through a study of the seldom-examined lyric "you"--... more...
