  • The Stranger - Albert Camusby Harold Bloom

    Camus's landmark novel traces the aftermath of a shocking crime and the man whose fate is sealed with one rash and foolhardy act.

    *On Anachronism* joins together Shakespeare and Proust as the great writers of love to show that love is always anachronistic, and never more so when it is homosexual.

  • The Narrative Turn in Fiction and Theoryby Hanna Meretoja

  • The Spirit of Carnivalby David Danow

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The world of literature responds to the "spirit of carnival" in ways that are both social and cultural, mythological and archetypal. Literature provides a mirror in which carnival is reflected and refracted through the multifarious perspectives of verbal art. In his original, wide-ranging book, David K. Danow catches the various reflections in that... more...

  • Postmodernist Fictionby Brian McHale

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 43.95

    Like it or not, the term `postmodernism' seems to have lodged itself in our critical and theoretical discourses. We have a postmodern architecture, a postmodern dance, perhaps even a postmodern philosophy and a postmodern condition. But do we have a postmodernist fiction? In this trenchant and lively study Brian McHale undertakes to construct a version... more...

  • Literature and Terrorism.by Michael C. Frank; Eva Gruber

    Editions Rodopi 2012; US$ 70.20

    The years following the attacks of September 11, 2001 have seen the publication of a wide range of scientific analyses of terrorism. Literary studies seem to lag curiously behind this general shift of academic interest. The present volume sets out to fill this gap. It does so in the conviction that the study of literature has much to offer to the transdisciplinary... more...

  • The Move Beyond Formby Mary Joe Hughes

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 95.00

    Fictional narratives of the late twentieth century often cross boundaries. This study argues that the undoing of structure in postmodern art form demands a different way of thinking and represents a commentary on the material and social conditions of the late twentieth century and beyond. more...

  • Migration, Space and Transnational Identitiesby Daniel Conway; Pauline Leonard

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    Twenty years after the post-apartheid Government took office, this timely text interrogates the extent to which the attitudes, identities and everyday lives of British people have changed in accordance with the 'new' South Africa. New ethnographic research is drawn upon to explore important questions of mobility, locality and identity. more...

  • Shakespeare and Contemporary Fictionby Barbara L. Estrin

    University of Delaware Press 2012; US$ 84.99

    As the first book to use fiction as theory, Shakespeare and Contemporary Fiction reads backward to demonstrate how recent novelists redeploy foundling and lyric plots to uncover a Shakespeare who similarly challenges the mythological homogeneity that scripts us. more...
