This season brings a number of Broadview’s most widely praised and most successful titles in new editions or versions. Pride of place must go to the Broadview Frankenstein—the first edition of which in 1992 established what has become the template for the entire Broadview Editions series, with the classic text accompanied not only by an informative introduction, chronology, and bibliography, but also by an extensive selection of background documents that provide a vivid sense of the work in its historical context. That’s not the only successful title to appear in a new edition or new version this season. Others include The Canterbury Tales, The Broadview Anthology of Short Fiction, and “The Victorian Era” volume of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, acclaimed as having set “the new standard” for anthologies of this sort. Highlights of the season’s philosophy list include concise editions of two of our most ambitious and successful titles in that discipline—First Philosophy and The Broadview Anthology of Social and Political Thought. In any Broadview season there is also always a good deal that is entirely new for Broadview, and this one is no exception. Notable titles include a new translation of Sigmund Freud’s The Future of an Illusion; from our Freehand Books literary wing an extraordinary new novel of two women in South Sudan, While The Sun is Above Us; and in the Broadview Editions list a re-issue of Black Oxen, a remarkable novel from the 1920s about an older woman who manages to become young again. Also new this season: over two hundred Broadview titles are being made available electronically through the Google eBookstore. This is not our first venture into the world of e-books (some Freehand titles are available through Kobo, the iBookstore, and Barnes and Noble, for example, and many Broadview titles are available in electronic form through the Symtext ‘liquid textbook’ system)—but it is by far the largest. It may not be possible for human beings to stay perpetually young and fresh—but we at Broadview are determined to prove that it is entirely possible for book publishers!

BroadVieW editionS Gulliver’s Travels (1726) B Y J O N AT H A N S W I F T EDITED BY ALLAN INGRAM May 2012 5.5x8.5 paper 8 illustrations 450pp 978-1-55111-979-3 US $13.95 CDN $13.95 AUST $15.95 FIC019000 FICTION / Literary

Historical materials, annotation, and a new introduction bring this iconic eighteenth-century text to life for modern readers. In this narrative of the gullible ship’s doctor Lemuel Gulliver and his extraordinary travels, Jonathan Swift takes readers through a series of apparently child-like fantasy worlds of tiny people and giants, floating islands and talking horses. But through this fantastic journey, he also gave to literature an enduring model of mankind’s follies, vulnerabilities, vanities, and self-destructiveness. Dangerously topical in its own time and much debated ever since, Gulliver’s Travels is among those works of English literature that entrap and challenge readers in every period. Historical appendices provide a context for the novel’s literary models, scientific influences, and complex political and religious allusions. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was an Anglo-Irish writer of poetry, prose, and political pamphlets and essays. He is known as one of the greatest satirists in the English language.

A groundbreaking edition of a classic, the Broadview Frankenstein has been updated to reflect current controversies about the novel’s composition. Praise for the second edition: “Superb. The introduction and appendices are particularly valuable ... accessible and illuminating.” – Bernard Hirsch, University of Kansas “Far better than any [other edition] on the market today.” – Craig Keating, Langara College Mary Shelley’s deceptively simple story of Victor Frankenstein and the creature he brings to life, first published in 1818, is now more widely read than any other work of the Romantic period. Tracing the troubled relationship between Frankenstein and his creation in a complex, multilayered narrative, the story retains its hold on the reader even as it spins off ideas in rich profusion. New to this edition is a discussion of Percy Shelley’s role in contributing to the first draft of the novel. Recent scholarship has clarified the degree to which Percy Shelley edited, modified, and added to Mary Shelley’s original text, and this edition’s note on the text discusses this scholarship, as well as the controversy over whether Percy Shelley should be considered a co-author of the work. Mary Shelley (1797-1851) was an English fiction writer, dramatist, and essayist. The daughter of prominent political philosophers Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, she was married to the poet Percy Shelley. The late D.L. Macdonald was a professor in the Department of English at the University of Calgary. Kathleen Scherf is Professor of Communications at Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, British Columbia.

BroadVieW editionS The Future of an Illusion (1927) BY SIGMUND FREUD

APPENDICES A: Oskar Pfister’s Response to Freud’s The Future of an Illusion B: Other Works by Freud and Pfister on Religion

EDITED BY TODD DUFRESNE TRANSLATED BY GREGORY C. RICHTER May 2012 5.5x8.5 paper 200pp 978-1-55481-065-9 US $14.95 CDN $14.95 AUST $17.95 PSY026000 PSYCHOLOGY / Movements / Psychoanalysis PHI040000 PHILOSOPHY / Movements / Critical Theory PHI022000 PHILOSOPHY / Religious

A key work of Freud’s late period, The Future of an Illusion is for the first time paired with Oskar Pfister’s powerful response, “The Illusion of a Future” (1928). In 1927 Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, declared that religion is a universal obsessional neurosis. The Future of an Illusion provoked immediate controversy and has continued to be an important work for anyone interested in the intersection of psychology, religion, and culture. Included in this volume is Oskar Pfister’s critical engagement with Freud’s views on religion. Pfister, a Swiss pastor and lay analyst, defends mature religion against Freud’s “scientism.” Noted Freud scholar and editor Todd Dufresne provides a challenging crossdisciplinary introduction. All of Freud’s and Pfister’s texts have been beautifully updated in Gregory C. Richter’s masterful translations from the original German. Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), an Austrian, was the founder of psychoanalysis. His theories about the workings of the unconscious mind remain widely influential. Todd Dufresne is Professor of Philosophy and founding Director of the Advanced Institute for Globalization & Culture at Lakehead University. He has published six books on Freud, including the Broadview Edition of Beyond the Pleasure Principle. Gregory C. Richter is Professor of German and Linguistics at Truman State University.

This novel created a sensation in the 1920s with its story of an aging woman’s search for scientific “rejuvenation.” This novel, a bestseller in the 1920s and the basis of a popular 1924 film, brings together such unlikely topics as medical rejuvenation treatments, eugenics, American youth culture, and cross-generational relationships. The beautiful American widow of a Hungarian count, Mary Zattiany is fifty-eight years old; after receiving experimental “rejuvenation treatments” and returning to America, however, she is often mistaken for a woman in her twenties, and falls in love with a much younger man. Set in an era fixated on youth, beauty, and pleasure, but focusing on the experiences of an aging woman, Black Oxen offers a fresh perspective on the Jazz Age. Black Oxen was written in a burst of mental energy after Gertrude Atherton herself received an experimental anti-aging treatment; the introduction and appendices to this edition explore the parallels and differences between Atherton and her protagonist, as well as providing selections from other contemporary writings on aging, science, and the role of women in the 1920s. Stills and posters from the 1924 fi lm adaptation are also included. Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) was a prolific and popular American novelist. Melanie Dawson is Visiting Assistant Professor of English at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia and the author of Laboring to Pay: Home Entertainment and the Spectacle of Middle-Class Cultural Life 1850-1920 (University of Alabama Press, 2005).

A new glossary and helpful textual information make Chaucer’s masterpiece more accessible in this second edition. “Britain’s greatest medieval poem by its greatest non-dramatic poet: this new edition will be attractive to students, scholars, and general readers alike. Facsimiles of individual leaves from that manuscript have been scattered throughout the volume to give us a real sense of what it would have been like to open The Canterbury Tales for the first time in the years immediately following Chaucer’s death.” – Larry Scanlon, Rutgers University

The Broadview Canterbury Tales is a new edition of the complete tales in a text based on the famous Ellesmere Manuscript. Here one may read a Middle English text that is closer to what Chaucer’s scribe, Adam Pinkhurst, actually wrote than that in any other modern edition. Unlike most editions, which draw on a number of manuscripts in an effort to recapture Chaucer’s original intention, this edition preserves the text as it was found in one influential manuscript. Spellings have not been standardized, the order of the lines and passages has not been altered, the text has only been emended when absolutely necessary for sense, and the original marginal glosses are noted throughout. The second edition includes a new glossary, a timeline of Chaucer’s life and times, and detailed headers showing the section and line numbers, making it easier to find a specific section of the poem. Geoff rey Chaucer (1343-1400) was an English poet, translator, bureaucrat, and diplomat. Robert Boenig is Professor of English at Texas A&M University.

“The great strength of this edition is the ease of access it gives readers to one of Marlowe’s strangest and most disturbing plays.” – Richard Allen Cave, Royal Holloway, University of London First performed by Shakespeare’s rivals in the 1590s, Christopher Marlowe’s The Jew of Malta was a trend-setting, innovative play whose dark comedy and final tragic irony illuminate the darker regions of the Elizabethan cultural imagination. Although Jews were banished from England in 1291, the Jew in the form of Barabas, the play’s protagonist, returns on the stage to embody and to challenge the dramatic and cultural anti-semitic stereotypes out of which he is constructed. The result is a theatrically sophisticated but deeply unsettling play whose rich cultural significance extends beyond the early modern period to the present day. The introduction and historical documents in this edition provide a rich context for the world of the play’s composition and production, including materials on Jewishness and anti-Semitism, the political struggles over Malta, and Christopher Marlowe’s personal and political reputation. Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) was a British playwright and poet. Mathew R. Martin is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Brock University.

“Republication of Pratt’s pioneering novel is long overdue, and this excellent edition makes the work fresh, intelligible, and impossible to ignore.” – Karen O’Brien, University of Birmingham Set both in England and in America, Emma Corbett is the moving story of a family torn apart by the American revolutionary war. In this powerful novel in letters, both sides of the conflict are fully represented—as are the miseries and terrible costs of war, and the question of how families and society itself can be rebuilt in the aftermath. Edward Corbett and Henry Hammond are brought up together and go on to marry each others’ sisters, but fight on opposite sides in the war. While Louisa, Edward’s sweetheart, stays in England, Emma Corbett follows Henry to Pennsylvania. Disguised as a man, she fights and is captured with her ship, before finding Henry and saving his life. The direct emotional impact of the characters’ experiences of the war made Emma Corbett a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. Appendices include contemporary reviews and historical documents on heroism, sensibility, and women and war. A series of personal letters between Pratt (writing as Courtney Melmoth) and Benjamin Franklin, for whom he worked in France, are also included.

The trajectory of Mary Wollstonecraft’s feminist ideas can be seen in these novellas about two very different women struggling against restrictive roles. “Writing was then the only alternative, and she wrote some rhapsodies descriptive of the state of her mind; but the events of her past life pressing on her, she resolved circumstantially to relate them....They might perhaps instruct her daughter, and shield her from the misery, the tyranny, her mother knew not how to avoid.” – from The Wrongs of Woman Mary Wollstonecraft wrote these two novellas at the beginning and end of her years of writing and political activism. Though written at different times, they explore some of the same issues: crippling ideals of femininity celebrated in the cult of sensibility, unequal education, and domestic subjugation. Mary counters the contemporary trend of weak, emotional heroines with the story of an intelligent and creative young woman who educates herself through her close friendships with men and women. Darker and more overtly feminist, The Wrongs of Woman is set in an insane asylum, where an aristocratic young woman has been wrongly imprisoned by her husband. By presenting the novellas alongside such texts as Wollstonecraft’s letters, her polemical and educational prose, similar works by other authors like feminists and political reformists, the literature of sentiment, and contemporary medical texts, this edition encourages an appreciation of the complexity and sophistication of Wollstonecraft’s writing goals as a radical feminist in the 1790s. Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) was an English political philosopher, novelist, and travel writer. Her Vindication of the Rights of Woman is considered a foundational text of modern feminism. Michelle Faubert is Associate Professor of English at the University of Manitoba.

“There are many good things to be said about The Broadview Anthology of Seventeenth-Century Verse and Prose—not least that it comes to help relieve a quarter-of-a-century’s dearth of decent anthologies, that it covers the whole century, and that it includes a number of women writers....This ambitious and thoughtful anthology deserves a large audience.” – Tom Clayton, Regents Professor of English, University of Minnesota

Eikon Basilike with selections from Eikonoklastes “Danielson ... has fashioned a powerful pedagogical tool that is a gift to any teacher of Milton, whatever the level of instruction.” – Stanley Fish, The New York Times John Milton’s epic story of cosmic rebellion and battle has long been considered one of the greatest and most gripping narratives ever written in English. Its intensely poetic language, now-antiquated syntax and vocabulary, and dense allusions to mythical and Biblical figures, however, make it inaccessible to many modern readers. This is, as the critic Harold Bloom wrote in 2000, “a great sorrow, and a true cultural loss.” Dennis Danielson aims to free the poem from the constraints of its original language by providing a fluid, readable rendition in contemporary prose alongside the original. The edition allows readers to experience the power of the original poem without barriers to understanding. John Milton (1608-1674) was an English poet and political writer. Best known for Paradise Lost and other poems, he also published many influential tracts on politics and religion. Dennis Danielson is Professor of English at the University of British Columbia. He is the editor of The Cambridge Companion to Milton and the author of Milton’s Good God: A Study in Literary Theodicy.

“This is a very intelligent and authoritative edition of Eikon Basilike, a text crucial for the study of seventeenth-century English literature and politics….Not only do the editors offer a full and thoughtfully annotated text of the king’s book, but they also provide the most relevant sections of Milton’s brilliant response, Eikonoklastes— not to mention a rich selection of other contemporary contributions to the debate.” – Paul Stevens, University of Toronto

In Three Guineas, first published in June 1938 (as the threat of war between Britain and Nazi Germany was looming larger day by day) Virginia Woolf set about answering three questions. How should war be prevented? Why does the government not support education for women? Why are women prevented from engaging in professional work? Many at the time saw the matter of how best to prevent war as entirely unconnected with “women’s issues;” Woolf linked together the answers, and connected them too with discussions of such matters as social class, in what has come to be acknowledged as a landmark both of feminist and of anti-war writing. Included in the first and other early editions—and integral to the work—was a series of five photographs of men of high position wearing garments that mark their status (Woolf does not identify the individuals portrayed, but—as researchers have shown—they would have been readily identifiable to many readers at the time). Unlike most editions available today, this facsimile edition includes the illustrations as well as the text of the original. Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is now generally recognized as the author of two of the twentieth century’s most important novels, To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway. Her work also includes another landmark of twentieth-century literature, A Room of One’s Own.

This is a book on how to read the essay, one that demonstrates how reading is inextricably tied to the art of writing. It aims to treat the essay with the close literary attention that has been given to other literary forms. Patricia Hampl explores F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famously confessional “The Crack-Up” from what was once his grandmother’s house in St. Paul, Minnesota; Sven Birkerts compares the power of Cynthia Ozick’s brief essay “A Drugstore in Winter” to “watching an enormous jet achieve lift-off from the shortest little patch of tarmac;” and Gayle Pemberton turns to Ralph Ellison for a “bracing blast of air” when the racism in contemporary American culture seems inescapable. At once personal appreciations and acute critical assessments, these pieces broaden our perspective on the essay as a literary art form. Patricia Foster is the author of All the Lost Girls (2000) and Just beneath My Skin (2004; Publisher’s Weekly starred review). She has received a PEN/Jerard Fund Award for non-fiction, a Florida Arts Council Award, and a Dean’s Scholar Award as well as seven Notable Essays in the Best American Essays series.

Broadview’s popular anthology of short fiction now includes even more fresh, diverse, and contemporary selections. “The unwieldiness of short fiction anthologies has impeded the serious study of this genre. Broadview Press offers a remedy in this gem of a book….Selections range from indispensable classics to more contemporary works that prove equally indispensable. A celebration of the short story.” – Susan Holbrook, University of Windsor This selection of thirty-eight stories (from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries) illustrates diverse narrative styles, from the austere to the avant-garde, as well as a broad spectrum of human experiences. The collection comprises recognized classics of the genre, and some very interesting, less often anthologized works. Stories are organized chronologically, lightly annotated, and prefaced by engaging short introductions. Also included is a glossary of basic critical terms. The second edition has been updated to include more recent stories, a greater selection of international authors and works in translation, and an illustrated story (Shaun Tan’s “Grandpa’s Holiday”). In the cases of several luminaries of the genre, such as James Joyce, Edgar Allan Poe, and Alice Munro, multiple stories by the same author are included.

“An exciting achievement … it sets a new standard by which all other anthologies of British literature will now have to be measured.” – Graham Hammill, SUNY Buffalo “With the publication of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies from Norton and Longman. Having adopted the first two volumes for an early period survey course last year, I had no hesitation in repeating the experience this year.…This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement.” – Nicholas Watson, Harvard University For the second edition of this volume a number of changes have been made. Elizabeth Gaskell’s “Our Society at Cranford” has been added, as has Anthony Trollope’s “A Turkish Bath.” Charles Dickens is now represented with a number of short selections. The selection of poems by D.G. Rossetti has been expanded considerably (the entire 1870 House of Life sequence is included), as has that by Michael Field. A selection of poems by two key figures who also appear in the anthology’s twentieth-century volume (Thomas Hardy and W.B. Yeats) is also now included. Several of the Contexts sections in the volume have been expanded—notably “The Place of Women in Society,” which now includes material concerning the Contagious Diseases Acts, and “Britain, Empire, and a Wider World,” which now includes a section on the Great Exhibition of 1851. The volume will also include additional visual material—including four more pages of full color illustrations.

This popular collection of classic and contemporary readings includes new appendices and extensive online content. Praise for the first edition: “The main difference between other anthologies and First Philosophy is Bailey’s supplementary material, which is excellent. The explicative material is likewise excellent: clear, highly relevant, useful, easily understood. The wonderful supplementary material makes this a very good text indeed.” – Jeff Foss, University of Victoria “First Philosophy has a good selection of articles for my purposes, and the accompanying introductory background material is absolutely brilliant.” – Jillian Scott McIntosh, Simon Fraser University Andrew Bailey’s highly regarded introductory anthology has been revised and updated in this new concise edition. Mindful of the intrinsic difficulty of the material, the editors provide comprehensive introductions both to each topic and to each individual selection. By presenting a detailed discussion of the historical and intellectual background to each piece, the editors enable readers to approach the material without unnecessary barriers to understanding. New sections on philosophical puzzles and paradoxes and terminology have been added, and additional content is available on the book’s website. Andrew Bailey is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Guelph. Robert M. Martin is Professor of Philosophy (retired), Dalhousie University.

The ideal introduction to the classic works and great schools of Eastern thought.

This book guides readers through ten classic works of Asian philosophy. Several major schools of Eastern thought are discussed, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism/Taoism, and Chan/Zen. The author connects the ideas of these schools to those of Western philosophy, thereby making the material accessible to those who are unfamiliar with the cultures and intellectual traditions of Asia. A wide range of important topics are addressed: reality, time, self, knowledge, ethics, human nature, enlightenment, and death. Puqun Li is Philosophy Instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Philosophy Tutor at Athabasca University.

CONTENTS Introduction Part I: The Domain of Everyday Aesthetics Chapter 1: The Nature of Everyday Aesthetics Chapter 2: Aesthetic Experience and Aesthetic Properties Chapter 3: Everyday Aesthetics and the Environment Part II: A Theory of Everyday Aesthetics Chapter 4: Aesthetic Experience as Experience of Objects with Aura Chapter 5: A Bestiary of Aesthetic Terms for Everyday Contexts Chapter 6: Criticisms Actual and Possible Chapter 7: Everyday Surface Aesthetic Qualities Chapter 8: Everyday Aesthetics and the Sublime Conclusion

Aesthetic judgment is extended beyond art and nature into the everyday in The Extraordinary in the Ordinary.

This book explores the aesthetics of the objects and environments we encounter in daily life. Thomas Leddy stresses the close relationship between everyday aesthetics and the aesthetics of art, but places special emphasis on neglected aesthetic terms that have particular relevance to the everyday, such as ‘neat,’ ‘messy,’ ‘pretty,’ ‘lovely,’ ‘cute,’ and ‘pleasant.’ For both the artist and the amateur, everyday aesthetics is a matter of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. Thomas Leddy is Professor of Philosophy at San Jose State University.
