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

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.74

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

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 55.72

    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...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.74

    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.
