    Where did literary modernism happen?

  • The Literature of Pityby David Punter

    Edinburgh University Press 2014; US$ 119.99

    Pity represents a combination of fear, helplessness and overwhelming agitation.

David Punter here engages with a wealth of theoretical ideas to explore the literature of... more...

  • Nation and Narrationby Homi K. Bhabha

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 43.95

    Bhabha, in his preface, writes 'Nations, like narratives, lose their origins in the myths of time and only fully encounter their horizons in the mind's eye'.
