  • Language and Relationship in Wordsworth's Writingby Michael Baron

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 52.30

    William Wordsworth (1770-1850) needs little introduction as the central figure in Romantic poetry and a crucial influence in the development of poetry generally. This broad-ranging survey redefines the variety of his writing by showing how it incorporates contemporary concepts of language difference and the ways in which popular and serious literature... more...

  • Der Tagby J. M. Barrie

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 1.99 US$ 1.73

    This World War I-era play demonstrates that J. M. Barrie's talents as a playwright were much broader than the light fare for which he is best remembered, including Peter Pan.

  • Peter Pan and Other Playsby J. M. Barrie; Peter Hollindale

    As well as being the author of the greatest of all children's plays, Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie also wrote sophisticated social comedy and political satire.

    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.

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

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    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

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 30.00

  • 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...
