  • Auctor Ludensby Gerald Guinness; Andrew Hurley

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1986; US$ 113.00

    This is a book about play practice rather than play theory. Of course, practice presupposes theory, but here the editors choose to keep general theoretical assumptions under cover rather then force them into explicitness. The contributors to this volume were given free rein to discuss whatsoever aspect of literary play caught their fancy. The absence... more...

  • The August War in Georgia: Foreign Media Coverageby Amalia Oganjanyan

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 42.20

    Hauptbeschreibung Reporting on a foreign war or a crisis is a challenging activity, a true professional test for a journalist. Media is often criticized for promoting violence by its conflict reporting: either by staying detached or by being biased. Peace, or conflict-sensitive, journalism was created for improvement of conflict coverage: it emphasizes... more...

  • Authorship in Contextby Dr Kyriaki Hadjiafxendi; Dr Polina Mackay

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 109.00

    Theories of authorship and material culture provide the framework for this study. It maps Anglo-American authorship as it shifts from a theoretical to a more material approach to its study in contexts recognized as key to its development: the nineteenth-century literary market-place, twentieth-century experimentalism and postmodern culture. more...

  • Autobiography and Natural Science in the Age of Romanticismby Dr Bernhard Kuhn

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Set against the backdrop of a rapidly fissuring disciplinary landscape where poetry and science are increasingly viewed as irreconcilable and unrelated, Bernhard Kuhn's study uncovers a previously ignored, fundamental connection between autobiography and the natural sciences. Examining the autobiographies and scientific writings of Rousseau, Goethe,... more...

  • The Autonomy of Literatureby Dr Richard Lansdown

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 139.00

    In the aftermath of the theory wars, the imaginative, formal, and moral features of literature have been substantially marginalized, downgraded, and neglected. Yet for many readers such elements will always be central to the experience of reading, just as for writers they are central to the experience of writing. This provocative study argues that... more...

  • Axel Cäsar Springerby Tilman Jens

    Herder Verlag 2012; US$ 12.40

    »Enteignet Springer« war eine der zentralen Forderungen der 68er-Bewegung. Die Abneigung gegen Springer und die Springer-Presse eint 68er wie politische Linke bis heute, die alten Reflexe funktionieren noch immer. In der DDR war Springer einer der meistgehassten Protagonisten des Westens. Auf Springer-Seite wird hingegen gerne jede Kritik an Axel Cäsar... more...

  • Becoming Julieby Julie Clarke

    Fledgling Press 2014; US$ 8.74

    Julie Clarke was born a boy in the 50s in central Scotland. From a very early age she knew she was different from other boys, but growing up in the 50s and 60s was not conducive to discussing feelings of gender difference and for many years Julie didn't even know there was a medical term for her dilemma: she was transsexual. Becoming Julie details... more...

  • Before Modernism Wasby Geoff Gilbert

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 135.00

    Before Modernism Was places modernist writing within the texture of modern history. Texts by Woolf, James, Freud, Wyndham Lewis, Stein, Malinowski, and others are read through a range of figures that construct and disrupt modern meaning: the ghost that affects the value of your property; the sulky, graceless adolescent; the Pole who may not be Polish;... more...

  • The Blackwell Guide to Literary Theoryby Gregory Castle

    Wiley 2009; US$ 109.95

    This student-friendly text introduces students to the history and scope of literary theory, as well as showing them how to perform literary analysis. Designed to be used alongside primary theoretical texts as an introduction to theory or alongside literary texts as a model for performing literary analysis. Presents a series of exemplary... more...

  • Bordering on the Bodyby Laura Doyle

    Oxford University Press, USA 1994; US$ 72.99

    The figure of the mother in literature and the arts has been the subject of much recent critical attention. Whereas many studies have focused on women writers and the maternal, Laura Doyle significantly broadens the field by tracing the racial logic internal to Western representations of maternality at least since Romanticism. She formulates a theory... more...
