  • The Trial of Womanby Diana Basham

    Palgrave Macmillan 1992; US$ 210.00

    The Trial of Woman examines the impact of the nineteenth-century 'Occult Revival' on the Victorian Women's Movement, both in the lives of individual women and in the literature surrounding 'the Woman Question'. The book explores the Victorian Myth of Occult Womanhood and argues that the notion of female occult power was deeply influenced by the advent... more...

  • Dress, Distress and Desireby Dr Jennie Batchelor

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 125.00

    Explores representations of sartorial experience in eighteenth-century literature. Batchelor's study brings together for the first time canonical and non-canonical texts including novels, conduct books and women's magazines to investigate the pressures that the growth of the fashion market placed on conceptions of female virtue and propriety. more...

  • Wordsworth's Poetic Collections, Supplementary Writing and Parodic Receptionby Brian R Bates

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.80

    Wordsworth’s process of revision, his organization of poetic volumes and his supplementary writings are often seen as distinct from his poetic composition. Bates asserts that an analysis of these supplementary writings and paratexts are necessary to a full understanding of Wordsworth’s poetry. more...

  • The Rhetoric of Courtship in Elizabethan Language and Literatureby Catherine Bates

  • States of Warby David William Bates

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 34.99

    We fear that the growing threat of violent attack, whether from terrorism or other sources, has upset the balance between existential concepts of political power, which emphasize security, and traditional notions of constitutional limits meant to protect civil liberties. We worry that constitutional states cannot, during a time of war, terror, and... more...

  • Literatur inter- und transmedial / Inter- and Transmedial Literatureby David Bathrick; Heinz-Peter Preußer

    Editions Rodopi 2012; Not Available

    Literatur oder, allgemeiner, Texte sind nicht erst seit dem 20. Jahrhundert inter- und transmedial ausgerichtet. Dennoch ist es sinnvoll, von einer medial reflexiven Literatur erst seit dem audiovisuellen Jahrhundert zu sprechen, dem des Films. Medientransformationen sind seitdem nicht allein paradigmatische Wechsel der Systeme, sondern auch Vervielfältigungen... more...

  • Göttliches Empfindenby Katja Battenfeld

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00

    Prädestiniert durch ihre Geschichte – als Zentrum der deutschen Frühaufklärung mit europäischer Wirkung und als einer der Impulsgeber der anthropologischen Wende – gründete die Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg 1993 das Interdisziplinäre Zentrum für die Erforschung der Europäischen Aufklärung (IZEA). Bisherige und gegenwärtige... more...

    Carcanet 2010; US$ 9.99

    James K. Baxter (1926-1972) is one of the twentieth-century's most remarkable poets, yet he has been too little regarded of outside his native New Zealand. In this innovative selection, Paul Millar, the expert on Baxter, gathers his most powerful and celebrated poems - political, lyrical and spiritual - with some of his more unexpected writings, including... more...

  • A Brighter Word Than Brightby Dan Beachy-Quick

    University of Iowa Press 2013; US$ 24.00 US$ 20.40

    The Romantic poet John Keats, considered by many as one of the greatest poets in the English language, has long been the subject of attention from scholars who seek to understand him and poets who seek to emulate him. Bridging these impulses, A Brighter Word Than Bright is neither historical biography nor scholarly study, but instead a biography... more...
