  • Lyric Apocalypse: Milton, Marvell, and the Nature of Eventsby Ryan Netzley

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 34.99

    What's new about the apocalypse? Revelation does not allow us to look back after the end and enumerate pivotal turning points. It happens in an immediate encounter with the transformatively new. John Milton's and Andrew Marvell's lyrics attempt to render the experience of such an apocalyptic change in the present. In this respect they take... more...

  • Carminaby Gaius Valerius Catullus; Len Krisak

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 19.99

    The works of poet Catullus have long been a companion for both lovers and those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter.

  • Before Actionby Charlotte Zeepvat

    Senza Vestimenta reintegrates poetic and musical traditions in late medieval Italy through a fresh evaluation of more than 50 literary sources transmitting Trecento song texts.

  • Antiformalist, Unrevolutionary, Illiberal Miltonby William Walker

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    Citing Milton's major prose works from the civil war through to the Restoration, Walker reveals a Milton who is antiformalist in his constitutional thought, unrevolutionary in his general socio-political outlook, and markedly illiberal on a wide range of social, religious and political issues. Walker's book is thus a highly provocative challenge... more...
