  • Worm Workby Janelle A. Schwartz

    University of Minnesota Press 2012; US$ 83.00

    Worms. Natural history is riddled with them. Literature is crawling with them. From antiquity to today, the ubiquitous and multiform worm provokes an immediate discomfort and unconscious distancing: it remains us against them in anthropocentric anxiety. So there is always something muddled, or dirty, or even offensive when talking about worms.... more...

  • Failure, A Writer's Lifeby Joe Milutis

    John Hunt Publishing 2013; US$ 17.99

  • The Ancients and Shakespeare on Timeby Piotr Nowak

    Editions Rodopi 2014; US$ 34.00

    In The Ancients and Shakespeare on Time Piotr Nowak depicts a world where tradition ? devoid of gravity, ?Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything? ? attempts to curb the young and new, while youth resists with all its power, vitality and characteristic insolence. The wars of generations, which Nowak explores in the works of Plato, Aristophanes... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2013; US$ 68.60
