  • A Modern Coleridgeby Andrea Timár

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 90.00

    A Modern Coleridge shows the interrelatedness of the discourses of cultivation, addiction and habit in Coleridge's poetry and prose, and argues that these all revolve around the problematic nexus of a post-Kantian idea of free will, essential to Coleridge's eminently modern idea of the 'human'. more...

  • Zwischentöneby Gunter E. Grimm

    Tectum Verlag 2015; US$ 18.76

    Wie keine andere literarische Gattung lebt die Lyrik von ?Zwischentönen? - von Nuancen, Abstufungen, feinen Übergängen, Abtönungen. In ihrer sprachlichen Konzentriertheit und Kürze bleibt die Lyrik nach wie vor die Gattung, in der sich Gefühle und Gedanken am unmittelbarsten aussprechen. Gunter E. Grimm stellt einzelne, für die Entwicklung der deutschen... more...

  • Archetypesby Elémire Zolla

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 110.00

    Man is dominated by his archetypes; they mould not only his history but his dreams. But how are we to define and evaluate them? Is it perhaps possible for us to relate more creatively to them? Originally published in 1981, these are some of the questions raised by this title. To answer them the author gathered together a vast amount of material... more...

    This volume discusses the lives and writings of five nonconformist women who comprised the heart of a vibrant literary circle in England between 1760 and 1840.

  • The Anthropocene Lyricby Tom Bristow

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 45.00

    This book takes the work of three contemporary poets?John Burnside, John Kinsella and Alice Oswald?to reveal how an environmental poetics of place is of significant relevance for the Anthropocene: a geological marker asking us to think radically of the human as one part of the more-than-human world. more...

  • Dryden's Poetic Kingdoms (Routledge Revivals)by Alan Roper

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    Dr. Roper describes the mode of many of Dryden?s original poems by redefining the royalism that provides the matter of some works and the metaphoric vocabulary of others. Dryden?s royalism is seen both as an identifiable political attitude and a way of apprehending public life that again and again relates superficially non-political matters to the... more...

  • The Living Milton (Routledge Revivals)by Sir Frank Kermode

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    Various aspects of Milton are explored in this collection of essays by scholars whose reputations were, at the time of publication in 1960, perhaps largely based on their writings on more modern subjects. This had the advantage of demonstrating that Milton as a poet is "alive" and that other attempts to represent him as irrelevant to the interests... more...
