This history of a family is an amalgamation of Garcia Marquez's shorter fiction, American fiction, biblical parables, and quixotic experiences of his own unique life story.

This study is a history of literary criticism from the end of the 17th to the end of the 18th century that not only takes the discursive construction of its (self)representation into account, but also the social and economic conditions of its practice. It is distinctive through its methodology, its material of analysis, and through its results. more...

On June 30, 1864, amidst the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act to protect Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

This examination of the last two tales of Cervantes' Novelas ejemplares reveals the Christian Humanist tradition implicit in the most elusive works of the collection.

'The Hitting Game' is the first collection of poems by the London-based young poet Graham Clifford. The vibrancy of the poet's voice and the immediacy of his claims upon our attention are clear. These poems provoke as well as delight. Characters arrive as 'you' in 'Obvious Constellations' 'Amazing' and 'Trying'. Incidents are approached from disarmingly... more...

Pablo Neruda was without doubt one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. However, his work is extremely uneven, and long. The companion examines the view that there are two Nerudas, an early Romantic visionary and a later Marxist populist, who denied his earlier poetic self. By focussing on the poet's apprenticeship, his struggle to read... more...

The poems in Eavan Boland?s new collection consider questions of inheritance and identity, of what is handed down and what is lost. Boland?s poems are acts of preservation: they are aware of the significance of objects, memories, words, in keeping alive what we would otherwise ‘lose / without thinking?. At the same time, they are a holding to account,... more...

Through the poems in Spans, Elizabeth Seydel Morgan examines life from the perspective of one who appreciates the complexities of the world but finds pleasure in events as predictable as the changing of the seasons or as uncomplicated as a visit to an art museum. Morgan accepts the inevitability of change but mourns the loss of "what we don't know... more...
