    This title, first published in 1909, presents a selection of the most important essays by members of the renowned Browning Society, which existed to promulgate the works of and appreciation for perhaps the greatest English poet of the Victorian Age.

  • A Revised Reading of Mary Hays’ Philosophical Novel Memoirs of Emma Courtney (1796)by Helena Bergmann

  • Science, Politics, and Friendship in the Works of Thomas Lovell Beddoesby Ute Berns

    University of Delaware Press 2011; US$ 104.50

    This study revaluates the work of the scientist and radical, poet and dramatist and English exile in Germany Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-1849). While his writing has elicited high praise from poets ranging from Robert Browning through Ezra Pound to John Ashbery, scholars have frequently neglected it on grounds of its purportedly morbid and opaque... more...

  • Of Chastity and Powerby Philippa Berry

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 41.95

    Elizabeth I was one of the most powerful women rulers in European history. What can feminism reveal about the attitudes of her male subjects towards this enigmatic figure? Through readings of key Elizabethan texts by Lyly, Ralegh, Chapman, Shakespeare, and Spenser, Philippa Berry shows that while Elizabeth's combination of chastity with political and... more...

  • Keynes on Monetary Policy, Finance and Uncertaintyby Jorg Bibow

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 45.88

    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...
