‘This is a text of choice for first-time and established readers alike. [The] annotation is extensive, diligent and unfussy, and offers a serious rival to Jeri Johnson’s notes in the Oxford edition.’ - James Joyce Quarterly


Mark Yakich, Loyola University, New Orleans, USA For its playful sincerity and idiosyncratic humor, Poetry: A Survivor’s Guide has earned praise from students, teachers and readers around the globe, as it offers an original take on a subject both loved and feared. In a time of great change, its unconventional advice and application is crucial to encourage meaningful discussion and personal growth. This updated and expanded edition probes a range of strategies for inspiring students and aspiring poets on the ways poetry relates to their own lives. These include individual meditation, digital learning, and the uses and utility of poetry as a tool of social change.

Narrating Medicine in Middle English Poetry Poets, Practitioners, and the Plague Eve Salisbury Filling a gap in what we know about medical writing in England in the 100+ years after the advent of the “Great Mortality”, this book calls attention to a discourse that privileges illness narratives, strategies of self-care, and the voices of poets, patients, and practitioners. When read in conjunction with medical treatises, plague tractates, and verse remedies, literary narratives disclose an experience of illness that other genres of medical writing lack, thus enabling us to see the kinship between poetry and the healing arts.

Reading Poetry with College and University Students

Overcoming Barriers and Deepening Engagement Thomas Fink, LaGuardia Community CollegeCUNY, USA College students don’t need to find poetry alienating. This book aims to help faculty foster students’ engagement with poems while enabling them to sharpen critical and creative thinking. Considering work by such poets as Julia Alvarez, Amiri Baraka, Gwendolyn Brooks, Mahmoud Darwish, John Donne, W.B. Yeats, Audre Lorde and A.K. Ramanujan, Thomas Fink zeroes in on how learners can surmount and even enjoy tackling the most difficult aspects of poetry. He explores students’ emotional identification with speakers and characters of poems and with poets themselves, showing how an instructor can motivate students to produce effective interpretations.

Reading the Modernist Long Poem

L I T E R A R Y S T U D I E S – Poetry / Modernism

Poetry: A Survivor's Guide, Second Edition

John Cage, Charles Olson and the Indeterminacy of Longform Poetics

Brendan C. Gillott, University of Cambridge, UK This book argues that indeterminacy is a fundamental feature of the modernist long poem. Taking as the form's exemplars the highly influential but critically contentious poetry of John Cage and Charles Olson, this book considers longform indeterminacy by way of its analogues in musicology, mycology, cybernetics and philosophy, while articulating how both poets broke with the longform poetic traditions of the early 1900s. Brendan C. Gillott argues for Cage and Olson’s centrality to these traditions – in developing, critiquing and innovating on the longform poetics of the past, their work revolutionized the longform poetry of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Sacred Life of Modernist Literature

Immanence, Occultism, and the Making of the Modern World Allan Kilner-Johnson Exploring the relationship between occultism and modernist literary experimentation, this book sets the work of leading modernist writers alongside lesser known female writers and writers in languages other than English to more fully portray the aesthetic and philosophical connections between modernism and the occult.

The Distance of Irish Modernism Memory, Narrative, Representation

John Greaney, University College Dublin, Ireland Rethinking the relationship between form and history in Irish modernist writing and its aftermath, this book examines how critics have previously categorized the Irish modernist novel, as an evidentiary form of cultural memory. John Greaney exposes the problems with such a stance, exploring novels by Elizabeth Bowen, Kate O’Brien, Samuel Beckett, Flann O’Brien and John McGahern through new critical paradigms in modernist studies. This approach contrasts the gap between modernist literature and national history with materialist approaches to modernism, and in so doing delineates how Irish modernism becomes both a world problematic as well as a container for national history.

L I T E R A R Y S T U D I E S – Modernism

Understanding Philosophy, Understanding Modernism Understanding Barthes, Understanding Modernism

Edited by Jeffrey R. Di Leo, University of Houston-Victoria, USA & Zahi Zalloua, Whitman College, USA Understanding Barthes, Understanding Modernism is an assessment of the modern literary and philosophical contributions of Roland Barthes. The volume focuses on work published prior to his death in 1980, covering the major periods of his development from Writing Degree Zero (1953) to Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography (1980), as well as his posthumously published material and the legacies of his work after his death. Culminating with a glossary of terms and concepts in Barthes’ writing, the volume is both broad and thorough in its exploration of Barthes.

James Joyce and Paul L. Léon The Story of A Friendship Revisited

Edited by Luca Crispi, University College Dublin, Ireland, Alexis Leopold Léon & Anna Maria Léon With contextual annotations throughout, this book brings together important archival discoveries and historical accounts of Joyce's final decade struggling to finish his final work, Finnegans Wake, and explores one of the central relationships of Joyce’s final years: with his confidant, friend and business adviser Paul L. Leon. Unearthing Leon’s letters to his wife in the 1940s, which chronicle his desperate attempts to rescue Joyce’s Paris archives from occupying Nazi forces – efforts that would cost Leon his own life in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camps – this is an essential resource for scholars of Joyce and of the literary culture of World War II.

Modernism in Trieste

The Habsburg Mediterranean and the Literary Invention of Europe, 1870-1945 Salvatore Pappalardo, Towson University, USA When we think about the process of European unification, our conversations inevitably ponder questions of economic cooperation and international politics. Salvatore Pappalardo offers a new and engaging perspective, arguing that the idea of European unity is also the product of a modern literary imagination. This book examines the idea of Europe in the modernist literature of primarily Robert Musil, Italo Svevo, and James Joyce (but also of Theodore Däubler and Srecko Kosovel), all authors who had a deep connection with the port city of Trieste. Modernism in Trieste seeks to fill a critical gap in the extant scholarship, securing the literary history of Trieste within the context of current research on Habsburg and Austrian literature.

Understanding Marx, Understanding Modernism

Edited by Mark Steven, University of Exeter, UK In 1845 Karl Marx wrote: “The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.” There is no philosopher for whom these words are a more accurate description than Marx, forefather of modern revolution and, as this volume shows, herald for modernism. Marx’s writing absorbed the lessons of artistic and cultural modernity as much as his legacy concretely shaped modernism across multiple media. This volumes offers a close engagement with Marx’s central philosophical texts in relation to his literary antecedents; an exploration of the multimedia afterlife of his writings, including in film, theatre, literature, and art; and a glossary of mini-essays unpicking frequently used and abused terms like “capital,” “labor,” and “value.” UK July 2022 • US July 2022 • 256 pages PB 9781501372308 • £28.99 / $39.95 Previously published in HB 9781501351112 ePub 9781501351129 • £79.34 / $108.00 ePdf 9781501351136 • £79.34 / $108.00 Series: Understanding Philosophy, Understanding Modernism • Bloomsbury Academic

Judith Wright and Emily Carr Gendered Colonial Modernity

Anne Collett & Dorothy Jones, University of Wollongong, Australia Knitting together two fascinating but entirely distinct lives, this ingeniously structured, braided biography tells the story of the lives and work of Australian poet Judith Wright and Canadian painter Emily Carr. The two broke new ground for female artists in the British colonies and influenced the political and social debates about environment and indigenous rights that have shaped Australia and Canada in the twenty-first century. In telling their story/ies, this book charts the battle for recognition of their modernist art and vision, their similar experiences of colonial modernity as white settler women, and the transformative power of art.

Community in Contemporary British Fiction

Margaret C. Jones

Edited by Sara Upstone & Peter Ely

Egyptologist, Novelist, Activist

In Victorian England, Amelia B. Edwards was an iconic cultural figure, admired by the public for her best-selling fiction and for her witty, thoughtprovoking travel writing. In later life, she became a celebrated historian, bringing fresh understanding of Ancient Egypt to a fascinated public and founding the Egyptian Exploration Fund (Society). Unearthing forgotten sources, this book tells the story of her unconventional life - her travels, travails and feminist activism. A figure ahead of her time, it examines her involvement in suffrage and animal rights and reveals new insights into Edwards’ loving same-sex relationships with Ellen Rice Byrne and Lucy Renshaw.

Rethinking the Romantic Era

Androgynous Subjectivity and the Recreative in the Writings of Mary Robinson, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Mary Shelley Kathryn S. Freeman This book crosses the boundary between male and female writers of the Romantic period by linking representations of gender with late Enlightenment upheavals regarding creativity and subjectivity, arguing that these authors dismantle and reconfigure subjectivity as androgynous and amoral, subverting the centrality of the male gaze associated with canonical Romanticism. In doing so, it examines key works from each author's oeuvre, from Coleridge’s “canonical” poems such as Rime of the Ancient Mariner, through Robinson’s lyrical poetry and novels such as Walsingham, to Mary Shelley’s fiction, including Frankenstein, Mathilda, and The Last Man.

Circular Narratives in Modern European Literature

Juan Luis Toribio Vazquez, Sam Sharpe Teacher’s College, Jamaica Breaking with linearity – the previously ruling narrative model – many 20th-century European writers adopted circular narrative forms. This study shows how this trend – among authors such as Strindberg, Stein, Queneau, Nabokov, Joyce, Beckett, Robbe-Grillet, Calvino and Blanchot – was not a unified nor conscious movement, but rather a series of works arising sporadically, using circular structures to express similar ideas. It also shows how the renewed understanding of narrative form leading to this circular trend was anticipated by Nietzsche’s critiques of truth, knowledge, language and metaphysics, and his related discussions of nihilism and the eternal recurrence.

From Blair to Brexit

Examining how British writers are addressing the urgent matter of how we form and express group belonging in the 21st century, this book examines the most challenging issues for community in Britain in the past five years, notably Brexit and the Covid-19 crisis. Exploring questions of identity and local and national belonging, this book discusses works from contemporary British writers including Ali Smith, John McGregor, Bernadine Evaristo, Jonathan Coe and Sarah Hall, among others, to demonstrate some of the resources that literature can offer for a renewed understanding of identity and community.

Fairy Tales of London

British Urban Fantasy, 1840 to the Present Hadas Elber-Aviram, University of Notre Dame, London, UK From the time of Charles Dickens, the city of London has frequently inspired writers to their most creative flights of fantasy. Charting a new history of London fantasy writing from the Victorian era to the 21st century, Fairy Tales of London explores a powerful tradition of urban fantasy distinct from the rural tales of writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien. Hadas Elber-Aviram traces this urban tradition from Dickens, through the scientific romances of H.G. Wells, the anti-fantasies of George Orwell and Mervyn Peake to contemporary science fiction and fantasy writers such as Michael Moorcock, Neil Gaiman and China Miéville.

Derivative Lives

Biofiction, Uncertainty, and Speculative Risk in Contemporary Spanish Narrative Virginia Newhall Rademacher, Babson College, USA The title of this book, Derivative Lives, alludes to the challenge of finding one’s way within the contemporary market of virtually limitless information and claims to veracity. It is easy to feel lost in spaces of uncertainty where biographical truth teeters between the real and the imaginative. The title points to the prolific market of biographical novels that openly and intentionally play in the speculative space between the real and the fictional. Drawing on theories of risk and uncertainty, Derivative Lives considers the surge in biofiction in Spain and globally, relating literary expression to circumstantiality, derivatives, speculation, and game studies.

Elena Ferrante as World Literature

Stiliana Milkova, Oberlin College, USA The first monograph in English on Elena Ferrante, this book analyzes Ferrante's entire textual production and the range of scholarly and popular responses it has generated locally and globally. Focusing on Ferrante’s explorations of feminine identity, subjectivity, and agency within an oppressive patriarchal order, Stiliana Milkova argues that Ferrante constructs a theory of feminine experience which serves as the scaffolding for her own literary practice, delineating alternative modes of constituting female identity not contingent on male-centered ideologies.

Turkish Literature as World Literature

Edited by Burcu Alkan, University of Manchester, UK & Çimen Günay-Erkol, Özyegin University, Turkey Essays covering a broad range of genres and ranging from the late Ottoman era to contemporary literature open the debate on the place of Turkish literature in the globalized literary world. Explorations of the multilingual cosmopolitanism of the Ottoman literary scene are complemented by examples of cross-generational intertextual encounters. The renowned poet Nâzim Hikmet is studied from a variety of angles, while contemporary and popular writers such as Orhan Pamuk and Elif Safak are contextualized. Turkish Literature as World Literature not only fills a significant lacuna in world literary studies but also draws a composite historical, political and cultural portrait of Turkey in its relations with the broader world.

African Literatures as World Literature

Edited by Alexander Fyfe, American University of Beirut, Lebanon & Madhu Krishnan, University of Bristol, UK Focusing on a variety of geographic, historical and linguistic contexts, the essays in this volume seek answers to the following questions about African literatures: What are the topographies of 'the world' in different literary texts and traditions? What are that world’s limits, boundaries and possibilities? How do questions of literary form – realism, oral epic, lyric poetry – affect the presentation of worldliness? What are the material networks of circulation that allow African literatures to become world literature? African literatures, it emerges, do important theoretical work that speaks to the very core of world literary studies today.

World Literature and the Question of Genre in Colonial India Poetry, Drama, and Print Culture 1790-1890

Kedar Arun Kulkarni, Flame University, India The book describes the way Marathi literary culture, entrenched in performative modes of production and reception, especially balladry and epic storytelling, saw the germination of a robust, script-centric dramatic culture, owing to colonial networks of literary exchange and the newfound wide availability of print technology. It situates Marathi literature within contemporary world literature studies and critiques “eurochronology”— the perceived backwardness of colonial and postcolonial locales when compared with literatures produced in Euro-American metropoles. It demonstrates that literary cultures in colonized locales converged with and participated fully in key defining moments of world literature, but also diverged from them to create, simultaneously, a unique literary modernity.

Science Fiction in India

Parallel Worlds and Postcolonial Paradigms Edited by Shweta Khilnani, University of Delhi & Ritwick Bhattacharjee This volume examines the different ways by which Indian SF narratives construct possible national futures. It explores how the tensions generated by the seemingly conflicting forces of tradition and modernity within the Indian historical landscape are realized through characteristic tropes of SF storytelling. It looks at the interplay between the spatio-temporal coordinates of the nation and the SF narratives produced within to see how one bears upon the other and how processes of governance find relational structures with such narratives. It interrogates how postcolonial futures promise to articulate a more representative and nuanced picture of a contemporary reality that is rooted in a distinct cultural and colonial past.

Andrew Houwen, Tokyo Women's Christian University, Japan The first book to deal with the subject of Ezra Pound’s relationships with Japanese literature as a whole, this book provides a wealth of new scholarship on this subject, including focus on the 19th-century Japanese contexts that led to Pound’s interest in ‘hokku’ and Fenollosa’s No translations on which Pound based his own; significant original research on Pound’s Japanese friendships that enriched his understanding of Japanese literature; and an examination of all the explicit references to No in The Cantos in unprecedented depth.

The Life of James Ellroy

Steven Powell, University of Liverpool, UK Love Me Fierce In Danger: The Life of James Ellroy uncovers the life-story of one of the most fascinating authors of contemporary American literature. This biography is the untold story of how Ellroy created a literary persona for himself as the Demon Dog of American Crime Fiction, giving him a celebrity status and notoriety that few authors can match. To his admirers Ellroy is a literary genius who has reinvented crime fiction. To his detractors he is a reactionary, overrated figure.

New Directions in Print Culture Studies Archives, Materiality, and Modern American Culture

Edited by Jesse W. Schwartz, LaGuardia Community College, USA & Daniel Worden, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA From work in early and 19th-century American literary studies to the revisions of 20th-century literary studies occasioned by the rise of periodical studies, ways of conceptualizing American literary history have recently undergone significant revision. This collection features new approaches to cultural and literary history that draw on periodicals, print culture, and material culture, thus revising what we think we know about the aesthetic, cultural, and social history of transnational America. These essays focus on the materials and archives that highlight not a canon of “major” literary works but dialogues and tensions that define print cultures in various moments and movements.

Escape, Escapism, Escapology

American Novels of the Early Twenty-First Century John Limon Escape, Escapism, Escapology: American Novels of the Early Twenty-First Century identifies and explores what is emerging as perhaps the theme of 21st-century American fiction: escapism in the time of inescapable globalization. The driving question is how to find an alternative to the world within the world, and at a time when utopian and messianic ideals have lost their power to compel belief. John Limon traces the American answer to that question in the writings of some of the most important authors of the last two decades— Chabon, Díaz, Foer, Eggers, Donoghue, Groff, Ward, Saunders, and Whitehead, among others—and finds that it always involves the contemporary utopian freedom or messianic salvation of childhood.

Decolonizing the Undead

Rethinking Zombies in World-Literature, Film, and Media Edited by Stephen Shapiro, University of Warwick, UK, Giulia Champion, University of Warwick, UK & Roxanne Douglas, University of Warwick, UK Looking beyond Euro-Anglo-US-centric zombie narratives, this book reconsiders representations and allegories constructed around the undead, probing their cultural and historical weight across different nations and their significance to postcolonial, decolonial and Neoliberal discourses. Taking stock of zombies as they appear in literature, film and television from the Caribbean, Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, India, Japan, Iraq and Ireland, it explores how zombies reflect a plethora of experiences previously obscured by western preoccupations and anxieties.

L I T E R A R Y S T U D I E S – Gothic & Horror / Religion & Literature

Theology, Horror and Fiction A Reading of the Gothic Nineteenth Century

Jonathan Greenaway, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK Theology, Horror and Fiction argues that the Victorian Gothic is a genre fascinated with the immaterial. Through close readings of some of the most popular Gothic novels of the 19th century, Jonathan Greenaway demonstrates that to understand and read Gothic novels is to be drawn into the discourses of theology, and that this angle has been largely overlooked in broader scholarly investigations into the intersections between literature and religion. Combining historical theological awareness with interventions into contemporary theology, particularly around imaginative apologetics and theology and the arts more generally, Theology, Horror and Fiction offers the beginnings of a modern theology of the Gothic.

A Critical Anatomy

Edited by Orrin N. C. Wang, University of Maryland, College Park, USA This collection provides new readings of Frankenstein from a myriad of established and burgeoning theoretical vantages including narrative theory, cognitive and affect theory, the new materialism, media theory, critical race theory, queer and gender studies, deconstruction, psychoanalysis, and others. Demonstrating how the literary power of Frankenstein rests on its ability to theorize questions of mind, self, language, matter, and the socio-historic that also drive these critical approaches, this volume illustrates the ongoing intellectual richness found both in Mary Shelley’s work and contemporary ways of thinking about it.

The Economy of Religion in American Literature

Culture and the Politics of Redemption Andrew Ball

Marilynne Robinson's Worldly Gospel

A Philosophical Account of her Christian Vision Ryan S. Kemp, Wheaton College, USA & Jordan M. Rodgers, King's College, Wilkes-Barre, USA

This book offers a thoroughgoing reassessment of the relationship of religion and economics in American culture. Its guiding questions include: Are we truly living in a secular age? How did a Christian nation come to embrace capitalism? What role did religion play in the conflict of capital and labor in fin de siècle America? How are we to understand the status of religion in contemporary American culture? What light can the literary archive shed on the relationship of religion and economics?

An in-depth philosophical exploration of Marilynne Robinson’s work – from Gilead to her extensive non-fiction writing – this book reads Robinson’s theology as articulating a compelling response to the claim that Christianity is an otherworldly religion whose adherents seek through it to escape the misfortunes of this life. The authors argue that her work challenges the modern atheistic tradition, dating back to Friedrich Nietzsche, to present a unique form of contemporary faith that seeks to affirm the world rather than deny its claims.

Biblical Sterne

Rhetoric and Religion in the Shandyverse Ryan J. Stark, Corban University, USA Was Sterne one of the great Christian apologists? This book argues that he was, exploring Sterne’s engagement with the Christian religion and offering a persuasive reading of the biblical rationale informing Sterne’s use of humour and interest in talking and writing about sex. Examining a diverse range of texts, from Tristram Shandy to Sterne's sermons, this book unpacks the role that humour plays in thinking about literature and religion. It paints a picture of a parson who errs on the side of risqué mirth, not forbidding severity, if he errs at all.

Frankenstein in Theory

Esoteric Islam in Modern French Thought Massignon, Corbin, Jambet

Ziad Elmarsafy, University of York, UK Why would a Catholic, a Protestant, and a Maoist atheist devote their lives and work to the study of esoteric aspects of Islam? What are the theoretical and intellectual problems to which they provide solutions? These are the questions at the heart of this book. The three French specialists of Islam described above form an intellectual and personal genealogy that structures the core of the text: Massignon taught Corbin, who taught Jambet in his turn. Each of them found in the esoteric a solution to otherwise insurmountable problems: desire for Massignon, certainty for Corbin, and resurrection/immortality for Jambet.

New Forms of Environmental Writing Gleaning and Fragmentation

Timothy C. Baker, University of Aberdeen, UK Exploring a variety of environmental concerns and surveying a wide range of contemporary poetry, fiction, and memoir by women writers, this book argues for the centrality of individual encounter and fragmentary form in twenty-first-century literature. Proposing an exciting new theoretical model of 'gleaning' and including analyses of works by both familiar and emerging writers such as Sara Baume, Ali Smith, Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, Bhanu Kapil, Kathleen Jamie, and many others, this book also draws on theoretical perspectives such as ecofeminism, new materialism, posthumanism, and affect theory.

The Living World

Nan Shepherd and Environmental Thought Samantha Walton, Bath Spa University, UK Focusing upon Nan Shepherd's writing, this book asks how literature might help us to reimagine humanity’s place on earth in the Anthropocene. The first book to examine Shepherd’s work through an ecocritical lens, The Living World reveals forgotten details about the scientific, political and philosophical climate of the 1920s to 1940s. With reference to The Living Mountain, The Weatherhouse, A Pass in the Grampians, poetry from In the Cairngorms and Shepherd’s letters to Neil Gunn, Walton explores how Shepherd’s work offers new patterns for modern understandings of environmental studies and how we can relate to human and more-than-human communities.

Ecocollapse Fiction and Cultures of Human Extinction Sarah E. McFarland, Northwestern State University, Louisiana, USA

This work analyzes 21st-century realistic speculations of human extinction: fictions that imagine future worlds without interventions of as-yet un-invented technology, interplanetary travel, or other science fiction elements that provide hope for rescue or long-term survival. Rather than following the preferences of the genre, these fictions manifest apocalypse where the means for a happy ending no longer exists, rejecting the impulse of human exceptionalism to demonstrate what it might be like to go extinct.

The Translator’s Visibility

Scenes from Contemporary Latin American Fiction Heather Cleary, Sarah Lawrence College, USA The Translator’s Visibility examines novels by a generation of writers working after and through Borges—including prominent figures such as César Aira, Mario Bellatin, Valeria Luiselli, and Luis Fernando Verissimo—who place translation at the center of their narratives. Drawing on Latin America’s long tradition of critical and creative engagement of the practices and philosophies of translation, Heather Cleary shows that translation can not only serve to renew national literatures through an exchange of ideas and forms, but also, when rendered visible, can help us reimagine the terms according to which those exchanges take place.

This book interrogates how medico-scientific knowledge shapes a set of normative cultural practices that define the limits of health and the body, from the body’s place and trajectory in the world, to how bodies relate to one another, to what counts as health and illness.

The Dean of American Psychoanalytic Literary Critics Norman Holland was unquestionably the leading twentieth-century American psychoanalytic literary critic. Long known as the Dean of American psychoanalytic literary critics, Holland produced an enormous body of scholarship that appeals to both neophytes in the field and advanced researchers, many of whom have been influenced by his writings. Jeffrey Berman analyzes all of Holland’s books, and many of his 250 scholarly articles, highlighting continuities and discontinuities in the critic’s thinking over time. Insofar as this text illuminates the evolving mind of a premier literary critic, it produces a parallel profile of the American reader, the primary object of Holland’s extensive work.

Hyperbolic Realism

A Wild Reading of Pynchon's and Bolaño's Late Maximalist Fiction Samir Sellami, Hamburg Institute for Social Research, Germany What comes after postmodernism in literature? Hyperbolic Realism engages the contradiction that while it remains impossible to present a full picture of the world, assessing reality from a planetary perspective seems now more than ever an ethical obligation for contemporary literature. It examines the hyperbolic forms and features of Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day and Roberto Bolaño's 2666 – their discursive and material abundance, excessive fictionality, close intertwining of fantastic and historical genres, narrative doubt and spiraling uncertainty – which are deployed not as an escape from, but a plunge into reality.

Secrecy and Community in 21stCentury Fiction

Edited by María J. López, University of Córdoba, Spain & Pilar Villar-Argáiz, University of Granada, Spain This collection examines the centrality of secrets in a diverse and international range of contemporary literary works in English, focusing on their role in the construction and deconstruction of different forms of community. Drawing on thinkers such as Jacques Derrida, Georg Simmel, Matei Calinescu, Frank Kermode, Jean-Luc Nancy, Maurice Blanchot, Nicolas Abraham, Maria Torok and Byung-Chul Han, contributors outline the centrality of secrets in the construction of narrative sequence and meaning. Secrecy ultimately emerges as the language and space of illicit social bonds, forbidden identities and peripheral voices in the face of totalitarian forms of community.

Contemporary Readings in Gender and Sexuality

Shakespeare / Sex interrogates the relationship between Shakespeare and sex, challenging readers to consider Shakespeare’s texts in light of the most recent theoretical approaches to gender and sexuality studies. It takes as its premise that gender and sexuality studies are key to any interpretation of Shakespeare, be it his texts and their historical contexts, contemporary stage and cinematic productions, or adaptations from the Restoration to the present day. Approaching “sex” through four main perspectives - heterosexuality, third-wave intersectional feminism, queer studies, and trans studies - this book tackles a number of hot topics.

The Arden Research Handbook of Shakespeare and Social Justice

Edited by David Ruiter, University of Texas at El Paso, USA

This authoritative guide contains chapters on over 20 specific critical practices to Shakespeare, each grounded in analysis of a play. These practices range from foundational approaches including character studies, close reading and genre studies, through the critical practices that emerged in the 1970s and 80s including feminist, Marxist and psychoanalytic theories. Approaches drawn from postcolonial, queer studies and race studies, besides more recent topics including disability studies, global studies and the digital humanities all receive detailed treatment.

Across four sections this authoritative guide explores the relevance and responsibility of art to the real world - to the significant teaching and learning, performance and practice, theory and economies that not only expand the discussion of literature and theatre, but also open the gate of engagement between the life of the mind and lived experience. The collection draws from noted scholars, writers, and practitioners from around the globe to assert the power of art to question, disrupt and re-invigorate questions of social justice today.

A Selection of Japanese Theatrical Adaptations of Shakespeare

Coriolanus: A Critical Reader

Edited by Liam E. Semler, University of Sydney, Australia

An anthology of three exciting Japanese adaptations of King Lear, Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet that engage with issues such as changing family values, racial diversity, the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and terrorism, together with a contextualizing introduction.

Coriolanus is the last and most intriguing of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedies. This Critical Reader opens up the extraordinary range of interpretation the play has elicited over the centuries and offers exciting new directions for scholarship. With a timeline of key events relating to the play, substantial chapters survey the scholarly reaction to the play over four centuries, the history of Coriolanus on stage and the current research and thinking about the play. The second half of the volume comprises four ‘New Directions’ chapters addressing: philosophy; gender, affect and rhetoric; computational analysis and presentism.

Re-imagining Shakespeare in Contemporary Japan



Object Lessons Sewer

Jessica Leigh Hester, Freelance writer, USA Jessica Leigh Hester leads readers through the system humans have created to deal with our own waste, and argues that sewers can be seen as a mirror to the world above at a time when our behaviors are drastically reshaping the environment for the worse. What can underground pipes tell us about human eating habits and the spread or containment of disease, such as COVID-19? Why are sewers spitting out plastic and trash into waterways around the world? How are clogs getting gnarlier and more numerous? Sifting through the muck offers a fresh way to approach questions about urbanization, public health, infrastructure, ecology, sustainability, and consumerism—and what we value. Without understanding sewers, any attempt to steward the future is incomplete.

Jonathan Russell Clark, Freelance Writer, USA How did the skateboard go from a fad like the hula-hoop to an Olympic sport? Writer and skateboarder Jonathan Russell Clark's Skateboard answers this question by going straight to the sources: the skaters and company owners and manufacturers who made such an unlikely rise to worldwide juggernaut possible. As the stuntwood (as it’s often referred to) has never had, like other sports and subjects, dedicated historians, the real history of skating exists in a hodgepodge. From California beaches to Tokyo 2020, the skateboard has outlasted its critics to form a global community of innovation, persistence, and camaraderie.
