  • Wordsworth and Coleridgeby John Blades

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 22.71

    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...

  • Pope to Burney, 1714-1779by Moyra Haslett

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 34.56

    This book defines literature of the Eighteenth century as a literature written and received as public conversation. Moyra Haslett discusses and challenges conventional ways of reading the period, particularly in relation to ideas of the public sphere. Key texts (including The Dunciad , Gulliver's Travels and Pamela ) are read through the context... more...

  • Conservatism and the Quarterly Reviewby Jonathan Cutmore

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.38

    In its time, the Quarterly Review was thought to closely reflect government policy, however, the essays in this volume reveal that it was inconsistent in its support of government positions and reflected disagreement over a broad range of religious, economic and political issues. more...

  • The New Man, Masculinity and Marriage in the Victorian Novelby Tara MacDonald

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 56.41

    By tracing the rise of the New Man alongside novelistic changes in the representations of marriage, MacDonald shows how this figure encouraged Victorian writers to reassess masculine behaviour and to re-imagine the marriage plot in light of wider social changes. She finds examples in novels by Dickens, Anne Brontë, George Eliot and George Gissing. more...

  • Jane Austen's Civilized Womenby Enit Karafili Steiner

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.38

    Jane Austen’s six complete novels and her juvenilia are examined in the context of civil society and gender. Steiner’s study uses a variety of contexts to appraise Austen’s work: Scottish Enlightenment theories of societal development, early-Romantic discourses on gender roles, modern sociological theories on the civilizing process. more...

  • Romantic Marginalityby Alex Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.38

    This is the first critical study of Romantic-era annotation or marginalia – footnotes, endnotes, glossaries – which formed a vital site of literary interaction. more...

  • Art and Womanhood in Fin-de-Siecle Writingby Catherine Delyfer

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.38

    Lucas Malet is one of a number of forgotten female writers whose work bridges the gap between George Eliot and Virginia Woolf. Malet’s writing was intrinsically linked to her passion for art. This is the first book-length study of Malet’s novels. more...

  • Reading Robert Burnsby Carol McGuirk

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 56.41

    Robert Burns is Scotland’s greatest cultural icon. Yet, despite his continued popularity, critical work has been compromised by the myths that have built up around him. McGuirk focuses on Burns’s poems and songs, analysing his use of both vernacular Scots and literary English to provide a unique reading of his work. more...

  • Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminist Republicanismby Lena Halldenius

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 56.41

    Mary Wollstonecraft is a writer whose work continues to provoke scholarly debate. Halldenius explores Wollstonecraft’s political philosophy, focusing on her treatment of republicanism and independence, to propose a new way of reading her work – that of a ‘feminist republican’. more...

  • The Lesbian Muse and Poetic Identity, 1889–1930by Sarah Parker

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.38

    Throughout history the poetic muse has tended to be (a passive) female and the poet male. This dynamic caused problems for late Victorian and twentieth-century women poets; how could the muse be reclaimed and moved on from the passive role of old? Parker looks at  fin-de-siècle  and modernist lyric poets to investigate how they overcame these challenges... more...
