  • Caught between Worldsby Joe Snader

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 38.00

    The captivity narrative has always been a literary genre associated with America.

Stories of Europeans held captive in the Middle East, America,... more...

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 106.51

    What are the discursive and theoretical conditions for conceptualizing the notion of the postethnic literary?

    The English Revolution of 1642-60 produced an explosion of stylistically and ideologically diverse pamphlet literature.

  • The Life Writing of Othernessby Lauren Rusk

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    Focusing on innovative works by Woolf, Baldwin, Kingston and Winterson, the author analyzes how they each represent the self as unique, collectively "other," and inclusively human, and how these conflicting aspects of selfhood interact. more...

  • Air's Appearanceby Jayne Elizabeth Lewis

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 45.00

    In Air?s Appearance , Jayne Elizabeth Lewis enlists her readers in pursuit of the elusive concept of atmosphere in literary works.

    The O'Brien Press 2012; US$ 7.99
