  • Keynes on Monetary Policy, Finance and Uncertaintyby Jorg Bibow

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 44.62

    This book provides a reassessment of Keynes’ theory of liquidity preference. It argues that the failure of the Keynesian revolution to be made in either theory or practice owes importantly to the fact that the role of liquidity preference theory as a pivotal element in Keynes’ General Theory has remained underexplored and indeed widely misunderstood... more...

  • Ruskin and Genderby Dinah Birch; Dr Francis O'Gorman

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 134.00

    For many years Ruskin has seemed, at best, a conservative thinker on gender roles. At worst, his lecture On Queens' Gardens from Sesame and Lilies was read as a locus classicus of Victorian patriarchal oppression. These essays challenge such assumptions, presenting a wide-ranging revaluation of Ruskin's place in relation to gender, and offering... more...

  • Barbarian Memoryby Nicholas Birns

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 46.66

    An investigation of the use of Late Antique European history by late medieval and Renaissance writers such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Davenant, Trissino, and Corneille. The liminality of the late antique period and the issues of ethnicity and religion it raises makes it very different from that of the classical world in analogous writers. more...

  • Reexamining the National-Philological Legacyby Vladimir Biti

    Editions Rodopi 2014; US$ 90.00

    Has thinking, working and teaching in terms of national literatures become obsolete in today’s globalized world of hyphenated languages, literatures and cultures? Since the rise of modern European national philologies coincided with the emergence of modern European nation-states, does the dissolution of the latter in the European supranational unity... more...

  • A Room of His Ownby Barbara Black

    Ohio University Press 2012; US$ 29.99

    In nineteenth-century London, a clubbable man was a fortunate man, indeed. The Reform, the Athenaeum, the Travellers, the Carlton, the United Service are just a few of the gentlemen’s clubs that formed the exclusive preserve known as “clubland” in Victorian London—the City of Clubs that arose during the Golden Age of Clubs. more...

  • What Books by African American Women Were Acquired by American Academic Libraries?by Kimberly Black

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2009; US$ 149.95

    This study examines the publication, review and collection of fiction and poetry titles written by African-American women, published between 1980-1990 by Association of Research Libraries member academic libraries located in the United States. It is an examination of institutionalized legitimizing social forces and their influence on the collection... more...

  • Wordsworth and Coleridgeby John Blades

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 21.97

    In this lively and stimulating study, detailed analysis of the poems is closely grounded in the literary and historical contexts in which Lyrical Ballads was first conceived, realized and subsequently expanded into two volumes. Documenting the revisions of the early edition, John Blades carefully reassesses the poems in the light of Wordsworth's... more...

  • Victorian Poetry and the Culture of the Heartby Kirstie Blair

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 154.99

    This study considers why and how the heart became a vital image in Victorian poetry. It argues that the intense focus on heart imagery in the period highlights anxieties about the ability of poetry to act upon its readers. It covers key poems by authors such as Tennyson and the Brownings, and contextualizes them with reference to lesser-known works. more...

  • Songs of Innocence and Experienceby William Blake

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 3.99 US$ 3.47

    Songs of Innocence and of Experience compiles two contrasting but directly related books of poetry by William Blake. Songs of Innocence honors and praises the natural world, the natural innocence of children and their close relationship to God. Songs of Experience contains much darker, disillusioned poems, which deal with serious, often political themes.... more...

  • The Marriage of Heaven and Hellby William Blake

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99 US$ 3.47

    William Blake can rightly be described as one of the most important Romantic poets, but he is set apart from the likes of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats by his mysticism and radical social and religious beliefs. Following in the tradition of poetic geniuses such as Dante and Milton, Blake's remarkable collection The Marriage of... more...
