  • Literary Theoryby Terry Eagleton

    Wiley 2011; US$ 34.95 US$ 30.29

    A quarter of a century on from its original publication, Literary Theory: An Introduction still conjures the subversion, excitement and exoticism that characterized theory through the 1960s and 70s, when it posed an unprecedented challenge to the literary establishment. Eagleton has added a new preface to this anniversary edition to address more... more...

  • Exploring Postmodernismby Matei Calinescu; Douwe W. Fokkema

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1988; US$ 102.00

    The great diversity of contexts in which the term Postmodernism is currently encountered reflects the remarkable success of a coinage that has been in circulation for only about forty years.

  • Text to Readerby Theo D?haen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1983; US$ 98.00

    Text to Reader seeks to find a critical approach that links a novel?s form to its socio-cultural context.

  • Cormac McCarthy and the Ghost of Huck Finnby Leslie Harper Worthington

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 40.00

    Mark Twain once wrote, "We are nothing but echoes." Despite this pronouncement, Twain's voice continues to reverberate in the 21st century. Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn helped define modern American literature, creating The Huck Finn Tradition in contemporary writing. This volume discusses the intertextual connections between... more...

  • Feminist Fabulationby Marleen S. Barr

    University of Iowa Press 1992; US$ 31.95

    The surprising and controversial thesis of Feminist Fabulation is unflinching: the postmodern canon has systematically excluded a wide range of important women's writing by dismissing it as genre fiction. Marleen Barr issues an urgent call for a corrective, for the recognition of a new meta- or supergenre of contemporary writing--feminist fabulation--which... more...

  • Rediscovering The New Worldby Earl E. Fitz

    University of Iowa Press 1991; US$ 29.95

    The concept of "American" literature is not the exclusive province of any one nation. Thanks to the historical circumstances that governed the European conquest and settlement of the Americas, we can and should approach the writings of English and French Canada, the United States, Spanish America, and Brazil as a cohesive group of American literature,... more...

  • Theory and the Disappearing Futureby Tom Cohen; Claire Colebrook; J. Hillis Miller; with a manuscript by Paul de Man

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 28.95

    Paul de Man is often associated with an era of ?high theory?, an era it is argued may now be coming to a close.

Challenging and relevant, this... more...

  • Fiction Sets You Freeby Russell A. Berman

    University of Iowa Press 2007; US$ 29.95

    In what can only be called a genuine intellectual adventure, Russell Berman raises fundamental questions long ignored by literary scholars; Why does literature command our attention at all? Why would society want to cultivate a sphere of activity devoted to the careful study of literary fiction? Written as a tonic to what he calls the debilitating... more...
