  • Julia Kristeva and Literary Theoryby Megan Becker-Leckrone

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 34.61

    Engaged debate among feminist, political, and psychoanalytic thinkers has secured Julia Kristeva's status as one of the most formidable figures in twentieth-century critical theory. Nevertheless, her precise relevance to the study of literature - the extent to which her theory is specifically a literary theory - can be hard for new readers to fathom.... more...

  • Documentary Screensby Keith Beattie

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 36.59

    Documentary productions encompass remarkable representations of surprising realities. How do documentaries achieve their ends? What types of documentaries are there? What factors are implicated in their production? Such questions animate this engaging study. Documentary Screens is a comprehensive and critical study of the formal features and histories... more...

  • Madness and Cinemaby Patrick Fuery

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 39.57

    Madness and Cinema offers a radical approach to the issue of what happens when we watch films. By exploring cinema's relationship to meaning and proposing new ways to read cinema through psychoanalysis, this book develops the idea that the spectator engages in what has previously been described as an act of madness. By considering some of the key... more...

  • Privileging Differenceby Antony Easthope; Catherine Belsey

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 39.57

    Difference, the key term in deconstruction, has broken free of its rigorous philosophical context in the work of Jacques Derrida, and turned into an excuse for doing theory the easy way. Celebrating variety for its own sake, Antony Easthope argues, cultural criticism too readily ignores the role of the text itself in addressing the desire of the reader.... more...

  • Pitch of Poetryby Charles Bernstein

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 26.00 US$ 22.10

    Praised in recent years as a “calculating, improvisatory, essential poet” by Daisy Fried in the New York Times , Charles Bernstein is a leading voice in American literary theory. Pitch of Poetry is his irreverent guide to modernist and contemporary poetics. Subjects range across Holocaust representation, Occupy Wall Street, and the figurative... more...

  • Dominikaner und Juden / Dominicans and Jewsby Elias H. Füllenbach OP; Gianfranco Miletto

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00

    Als Johannes Pfefferkorn im Jahr 1507 seinen sogenannten "Judenspiegel" veröffentlichte, forderte dessen antijüdische Polemik den Widerspruch Johannes Reuchlins heraus und führte schließlich zu einer heftigen Kontroverse zwischen Dominikanern und Juden, an der die Kölner Dominikaner auf Seiten Pfefferkorns regen Anteil hatten. In Erinnerung an die... more...

  • The Poetic Enlightenmentby Rowan Boyson

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.52

    The essays in this edited collection look at the role of poetry in the development of Enlightenment ideas. As scholarly disciplines began to emerge – anthropology, linguistics, psychology – the ancient art of poetry was invoked to create new ways of defining and expanding this philosophy of human science. more...

  • Improper Namesby Marco Deseriis

    University of Minnesota Press 2015; Not Available

    Improper Names offers a genealogy and theory of the “improper name,” which author Marco Deseriis defines as the adoption of the same pseudonym by organized collectives, affinity groups, and individual authors. Although such names are often invented to pursue a specific social or political agenda, they are soon appropriated for different and sometimes... more...

  • Syllabus of Errorsby Troy Jollimore

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 16.95 US$ 15.42

    . . . we are fixed to perpetrate the species—     I meant perpetuate— as if our duty were coupled with our terror. As if beauty     itself were but a syllabus of errors. Troy Jollimore's first collection of poems won the National Book Critics Circle Award, was hailed by the New York Times as "a snappy, entertaining book," and led the... more...

  • How Poems Thinkby Reginald Gibbons

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 25.00 US$ 21.25

    To write or read a poem is often to think in distinctively poetic ways—guided by metaphors, sound, rhythms, associative movement, and more. Poetry’s stance toward language creates a particular intelligence of thought and feeling, a compressed articulation that expands inner experience, imagining with words what cannot always be imagined without them.... more...
