Semiotics & Literary Theory

  • Satireby Dustin Griffin

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Here is the ideal introduction to satire for the student and, for the experienced scholar, an occasion to reconsider the uses, problems, and pleasures of satire in light of contemporary theory. Satire is a staple of the literary classroom. Dustin Griffin moves away from the prevailing moral-didactic approach established thirty some years ago to a... more...

  • Prospects Of Powerby John Snyder

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Genre -- the articulation of "kind" -- is one of the oldest and most continuous subjects of theoretical and critical commentary. Yet from Romanticism to postmodernism, the concept of genre has been punched with so many holes that today it hardly seems graspable, let alone viable. By combining theory with dialectical literary histories of three significantly... more...

  • Literature And Spiritby David Patterson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    "If Bakhtin is right," Wayne C. Booth has said, "a very great deal of what we western critics have spent our time on is mistaken, or trivial, or both." In Literature and Spirit David Patterson proceeds from the premise that Bakhtin is right. Exploring Bakhtin's notions of spirit, responsibility, and dialogue, Patterson takes his reader from the narrow... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The facts of John Milton's life are well documented, but what of the person Milton -- the man whose poetic and prose works have been deeply influential and are still the subject of opposing readings? John Shawcross's "different" biography depicts the man against a psychological backdrop that brings into relief who he was -- in his works and from his... more...

  • Leopardi and the Theory of Poetryby G. Singh

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this first detailed and comprehensive account of Leopardi's theory of poetry, G. Singh assesses both the literary and critical attainments of a poet whose eminence ranks him with Dante and Petrarch. Singh's analysis, which employs extensive reference to Leopardi's work in order to illustrate the author's own comments, sets forth Leopardi's views... more...

  • Spiralsby Nico Israel

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 44.99

    In this elegantly written, intellectually daring study, Nico Israel reveals how spirals are at the heart of some of the most significant literature and visual art of the twentieth century.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    Using Hannah Arendt’s account of the Greek polis to explain Milton’s fascination with the idea of public speech, this book reveals what is distinctive about his conception of a godly, republican oratory and poetics.

  • Heteronormativity in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Cultureby Ana de Freitas Boe; Abby Coykendall

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Understanding heteronormativity is imperative for understanding the culture of the eighteenth century writ large, as well as the imaginaries of sex and sexuality that it bequeaths to the present.
