    Amsterdam University Press 2010; US$ 10.50

    Lang geleden, voordat er mensen bestonden, bleven alle dieren vruchtbaar tot hun dood. De afgelopen vijf miljoen jaar hebben wij ons ontwikkeld tot de enige diersoort met een menopauze. Kennelijk was dit ergens goed voor; de natuur geeft deze onvruchtbare extra tijd van leven niet cadeau. Het nut van de vijftigplusser, en daarmee zijn natuurlijke gedrag,... more...

The volume at hand questions the state of the art of interpretation. What does it mean for the literary scholars to interpret... more...

    A sensual Calvinist, a Tory radical, a consumptive celebrant of action, a Passionate Scot who chose to live anywhere but Scotland. Not for nothing was Robert Louis Stevenson the author of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde . The greatest of Scottish novelists, Stevenson lived a life as extraordinary and as absorbing as his books. But it was a life... more...

    Investigating autobiographical writing of Mary McCarthy, Henry James, Jean-Paul Sartre, Saul Friedlander, and Maxine Hong Kingston, this book argues that autobiographical truth is not a fixed but an evolving content in a process of self-creation. Further, Paul John Eakin contends, the self at the center of all autobiography is necessarily fictive.... more...

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2014; US$ 15.00
