    Bucknell University Press 2016; US$ 89.99

    Uniting Blacks in a Raceless Nation highlights the black qualities of the prose and poetry written by the Cuban mulatto writer Nicolás Guillén, and the ways in which they reflect the conflictive racial and sociocultural heterogeneity of Cuban society.

    Taking an original approach to Robert Browning's poetics, Britta Martens focuses on a corpus of relatively neglected poems in Browning's own voice in which he reflects on his poetry, his self-conceptualization and his place in the poetic tradition. She analyzes his work in relation to Romanticism, Victorian reactions to the Romantic legacy, and wider... more...

    There has never been a retrospective on Christopher Marlowe as comprehensive, complete and up-to-date in appraising the Marlovian landscape. Each chapter has been written by an eminent, international Marlovian scholar to determine what has been covered, what has not, and what scholarship and criticism will or might focus on next. The volume considers... more...

  • Dorothy Wordsworth's Ecologyby Kenneth Cervelli

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 48.95

    Dorothy Wordsworth has a unique place in literary studies. Notoriously self-effacing, she assiduously eschewed publication, yet in her lifetime, her journals inspired William to write some of his best-known poems. Memorably depicting daily life in a particular environment (most famously, Grasmere), these journals have proven especially useful for... more...

  • The Transmutation of Love and Avant-Garde Poeticsby Jeanne Heuving

    University of Alabama Press 2016; US$ 34.95

  • Insane Devotionby Mihaela Moscaliuc; Philip Levine

    Trinity University Press 2016; US$ 29.99

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 84.99

    This book pursues, for the first time, a comprehensive reading of T. S. Eliot?s poetry as it engages with Earth.

  • Thackeray in Timeby Richard Salmon; Alice Crossley

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    An intense fascination with the experience of time has long been recognised as a distinctive feature of the writing of William Makepeace Thackeray (1811?1863). This collection of essays, however, represents the first sustained critical examination of Thackeray's 'time consciousness' in all its varied manifestations. Encompassing the full chronological... more...
