  • Traits d'unionby Andrew Wallis

    Narr Francke Attempto 2011; US$ 52.18

    Hauptbeschreibung La production romanesque au dix-septième siècle résiste à des définitions simples, surtout lorsqu'il s'agit du sous-genre des romans comiques. Cette étude, en passant par les anti-romans de Sorel, de Scarron et de Furetière, entreprend une analyse des espaces et des discours hybrides, en marge de la littérature dite " traditionnelle... more...

  • Imaginative Theatralitätby Manfred Kern; Felicitas Biller; Claudia Höckner; Anja-Mareike Klingbeil; Manuel Schwembacher

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 50.68

    Obwohl das Mittelalter die Institution des Theaters nicht kennt, entwickeln mittelalterliche Poesie, Historiographie und Kunst äußerst differenzierte Verfahren der szenischen Darstellung und Perspektivierung. Von besonderem Interesse ist dabei das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen einer "theatralen" Ebene, die im literarischen oder bildnerischen Kunstwerk... more...

  • Konstruktivismus und Romanby Christina Schaefer

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 42.24

    Was veranlasst Alain Robbe-Grillet zu Beginn der 1950er Jahre dazu, einen 'neuen Roman' zu entwerfen? Nicht zuletzt eine neue, im Entstehen begriffene Epistemologie, die sich aus heutiger Sicht als eine konstruktivistische erweist. Mit dem Konstruktivismus teilt Robbe-Grillet eine dezidiert antirealistische Weltsicht, die davon ausgeht, dass die Wirklichkeit... more...

  • The Sparkling Jewel of Naturismby Selima Hill

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    The Sparkling Jewel of Naturism brings together three seemingly unrelated poem sequences by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson). The poems in each spark off unexpected connections and surprises, despite their contrasting concerns: sisters in Doormat (and being the object of someone else?s jealousy), little girls in Happiness... more...

  • So Many Moving Partsby Tiffany Atkinson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    So Many Moving Parts, Tiffany Atkinson?s third collection, is an eccentric 21st-century meditation on the awkwardness of body and spirit and their unexpected, often unwanted intrusions into the business of everyday life. Lyrical and experimental by turns, these poems push familiar events - commuting, telephones, babysitting, foreign travel - to open... more...

  • You Must Remember Thisby Michael Bazzett

    Milkweed Editions 2014; US$ 16.00

    A woozy logic dominates these poems: a heart can become a buzzing hive of bees, a rooster can trigger a series of bombs, a young man can embrace a city bus as his spirit animal. Yet Bazzett slices through his poems with a dangerous sense of humor. “Your humor is deft and cutting / my fingers off one by one,? as one poem puts it. Once dismembered,... more...

  • Young Countryby Kerry Hines

    Auckland University Press 2014; US$ 18.94

    Young Country is a book of poetry by twenty-first-century writer Kerry Hines alongside images by nineteenth-century photographer William Williams. The wry, plainspoken but haunting poems sit alongside evocative photographs of settlement: landscapes, streetscapes, skyscapes; the escapades of a trio of flatmates; portraits of family and friends; burnt... more...

  • I Have Crossed an Oceanby Grace Nichols

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Grace Nichols? poetry has a gritty lyricism that addresses the transatlantic connections central to the Caribbean-British experience. Her work brings a mythic awareness and a sensuous musicality that is at the same time disquieting. Born and educated in Guyana, Grace Nichols moved to Britain in 1977. I Have Crossed an Ocean is a comprehensive selection... more...

  • Complex Knowingby Chris Katsaropoulos

    Luminis Books, Inc. 2014; US$ 7.99

    These poems send the reader on a journey into the hidden realm of the subconscious, where the sixth sense of knowing overwhelms the other five. Chris Katsaropoulos has written a collection of poems that turn words and phrases inside out, bringing forth the intricate truths that can be found within a frozen landscape, a lost tribe of warriors, a funeral... more...
