    Fordham University Press 2015; US$ 18.99

    The Storm at Sea: Political Aesthetics in the Time of Shakespeare counters a tradition of cultural analysis that judges considerations of aesthetic autonomy in the early modern context to be either anachronistic or an index of political disengagement.

  • The Biographer and the Subjectby Rana Tekcan

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 26.99

    A good biography is a well-staged illusion. It creates—on paper—a vivid, rounded, and immediate sense of lived life. In contrast to purely fictional forms, biography writing does not allow total freedom to the biographer in the creative act. Ideally, a biography's backbone is formed by accurate historical facts. But its soul lies elsewhere. Since... more...
