  • Excess and Embodiment in Contemporary Women's Writingby Zeynep Zeren Atayurt

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 26.99

    The 'obese' female body has often been portrayed as the 'other' to the slender body. However, this process of 'othering', or viewing as different, has created a repressive discourse, where 'excess' has increasingly come to be studied as a 'physical abnormality' or a signifier of a 'personality defect' in contemporary Western society. This book engages... more...

  • The Puritan and the Cynicby Jefferson Humphries

    Oxford University Press 1987; US$ 69.99

    Der Cligès ist vermutlich nach Erec et Enide entstanden und somit der zweite Roman von Chrétien de Troyes. Es existieren mehrere moderne Übersetzungen des Romans in englischer und französischer Sprache, aber eine neuhochdeutsche Übersetzung ist seit langem ein Desiderat. Dies gilt umso mehr, als Erwähnungen in mittelhochdeutschen Dichtungen... more...

  • Violence in French and Francophone Literature and Filmby James Day

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 51.80

    Stories of violence — such as the account in Genesis of Cain’s jealousy and murder of Abel — have been with us since the time of the earliest recorded texts. Undeniably, the scourge of violence fascinates, confounds, and saddens. What are its uses in literature — its appeal, forms, and consequences? Anchored by Alice Kaplan’s... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 64.40

Modes of reading have evolved, as this volume of FLS amply attests. Following Bill Edmiston’s introduction to the volume — a concise and informative history of queer theory —... more...
