This study is a history of literary criticism from the end of the 17th to the end of the 18th century that not only takes the discursive construction of its (self)representation into account, but also the social and economic conditions of its practice. It is distinctive through its methodology, its material of analysis, and through its results. more...

On June 30, 1864, amidst the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act to protect Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. This act that set aside the first public parkland for future generations was a legacy for our nation and an inspiration to the world. To honor the 150th anniversary of this milestone, a call... more...

Pablo Neruda was without doubt one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. However, his work is extremely uneven, and long. The companion examines the view that there are two Nerudas, an early Romantic visionary and a later Marxist populist, who denied his earlier poetic self. By focussing on the poet's apprenticeship, his struggle to read... more...

The poems in Eavan Boland?s new collection consider questions of inheritance and identity, of what is handed down and what is lost. Boland?s poems are acts of preservation: they are aware of the significance of objects, memories, words, in keeping alive what we would otherwise ‘lose / without thinking?. At the same time, they are a holding to account,... more...

Both bleak and bewildering, Millennial Teeth , the visceral new collection by poet Dan Albergotti, maps a contradictory journey filled with longing and dread, cynicism and hope. A heady mix of traditional forms and more experimental verse, Albergotti’s volume lures readers inexorably into the poet’s obsessions with mystery, doubt, ephemerality,... more...

Since the publication of The Savage Detectives in 2007, the work of Roberto Bolaño (1953–2003) has achieved an acclaim rarely enjoyed in contemporary fiction. Chris Andrews, a leading translator of Bolaño?s work into English, explores the singular achievements of the author?s oeuvre, engaging with its distinct style and key thematic concerns, incorporating... more...

Some of the earliest books ever written, including The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Odyssey , deal with monsters, marvels, extraordinary voyages, and magic, and this genre, known as fantasy, remained an essential part of European literature through the rise of the modern realist novel. Tracing the history of fantasy from the earliest years through... more...

The reputation of César Vallejo (1892-1938) rests on his complex, unclassifiable poetry written from the viewpoint of a committed Marxist. He spent his early, formative, years in Peru, where his sympathy for the exploited peasantry inspired both his poetry and his politics, but in 1923 went to live in Paris (where he knew Artaud, Picasso and Cocteau). more...
