  • Reading Dante Gabriel Rossettiby Dr Brian Donnelly

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    A revolutionary figure throughout his career, Dante Gabriel Rossetti?s work provides a distinctly revolutionary lens through which the Victorian period can be viewed. Suggesting that Rossetti?s work should be approached through his poetry, Brian Donnelly argues that it is both inscribed by and inscribes the development of verbal as well as visual... more...

  • Rethinking Gaspara Stampa in the Canon of Renaissance Poetryby Dr Unn Falkeid; Professor Aileen A Feng; Professor Allyson M Poska; Professor Abby Zanger

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Despite the fact that Gaspara Stampa (1523?-1554) has been recognized as one of the greatest and most creative poets and musicians of the Italian Renaissance, scholarship on her work has been surprisingly scarce and uncoordinated. In recent years, critical attention towards her work has increased, but until now there have been no anthologies dedicated... more...

  • The Point Is To Change Itby Jerome McGann

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    A preeminent critic maps the frontier of contemporary poetry. In this book, Jerome McGann argues that contemporary language-oriented writing implies a marked change in the way we think about our poetic tradition on one hand and in the future of criticism on the other. He focuses on Walter Benjamin and Gertrude Stein as important intellectual... more...

  • Differentialsby Marjorie Perloff

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    A new collection of essays from a distinguished critic of contemporary poetry. Marjorie Perloff is one of the foremost critics of contemporary American poetry writing today. Her works are credited by many with creating and sustaining new critical interest not only in the work of major modernist poets such as Yeats, Pound, Eliot, and Williams... more...

  • New Bearings in English Poetryby F. R. Leavis

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 16.03

    It is difficult now to imagine the shock that this book caused when it was first published in 1932. The author was a teacher at a Cambridge college, an intensely serious man who had been seriously wounded by poison gas on the Western Front, and he was not disposed to suffer foolishness gladly. His opening sentences were arresting: 'Poetry matters... more...

    Fairleigh Dickinson University Press 2015; US$ 69.99

    This collection is an in-depth exploration of a central contemporary American poet with links to many key literary movements. The book provides a sweeping intellectual survey of modernism, postmodernism, and twentieth- and twenty-first-century American poetry. more...

  • Der lyrische Augenblickby Milan Herold; Michael Bernsen

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    Every moment represents eternity ? Goethe?s words poignantly capture the nuances and special complexity of the term ?moment.? It can refer to such varied notions as ecstasy, empty presence, and epiphany. This volume examines the semantic richness of the ?moment? using paradigmatic examples from Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and... more...

  • Song & Danceby John Fuller

    Random House 2015; US$ 14.38

    Jealous curses and hate poems, love lyrics and erotic dances: John Fuller has always written light verse, and Song & Dance is a boisterous and engaging collection, fizzing with intelligence and wit. There are tributes, and there are celebrations. Jokes abound in 'The Spellchecker's Guide to Poetry' and the wine is poured for 'Florio Drinking Song'.... more...

  • 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...
