Compact Disc

Robert Barry, Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, London, UK

Coffee—it’s the thing that gets us through, and over, and around. The thing—the beverage, the break, the ritual we choose to slow ourselves down or speed ourselves up. Coffee goes to lifestyle, and character, and sensibility: where do we buy it, how do we brew it, how strong can we take it? How often, how hot, how cold? How does coffee remind us, stir us, comfort us? But Coffee is about more than coffee: it’s a personal history and a promise to self; in her confrontation with the hours (with time—big picture, little picture), Dinah Lenney faces head on the challenges of growing older and carrying on.

The story of the compact disc is also the story of the end of physical media. For in the passage from analogue media, like records and tapes, to digital media, like CDs, something changed in the nature of media and in the relationship we have with music. Music became code, a sequence of 1s and 0s. A flow of pure information. The material structure of the medium itself was always supposed to disappear. But the physical has proved to possess an uncanny knack for returning. Today the CD persists – a zombie medium, still popular amongst certain avantgarde record labels and Japanese consumers. Against all the odds, the spectre endures.

Steve Mentz, St John’s University, USA The ocean comprises the largest object on our planet. Steve Mentz's Ocean shows us that retelling human history from an oceanic rather than terrestrial point of view disorients familiar stories and creates a new sense of our relationship with nature. Unlike conventional stories that describe civilizations made through agricultural settlement or violent conquest, in the ocean humans labor more vulnerably as either sailors or swimmers. Our engagement with the planet’s waters can be destructive, as with today’s deluge of plastic trash and acidification, but the discrepancy between small bodies and vast seas also emphasizes the frailty of human experience. Embracing the omnipresence of salt water in human history, Ocean combines history, myth, poetry, and narrative in order to revise the human story on a nonhuman scale.

Bulletproof Vest

Kenneth R. Rosen, Staff Writer, The New York Times "Nothing's bulletproof," the salesman said. "The thing's only bullet resistant." The New York Times reporter Kenneth R. Rosen had just purchased his first Kevlar vest and was headed off on assignment in Iraq. He was travelling into Mosul when he came to realize that the idea of a bulletproof vest is more effective than the vest itself. What Rosen learned through an intimate use of his bulletproof vest was that it acts as a metaphor for all the precautions we take toward digital, physical, and social security: at its most extreme, bulletproof vests represent a human desire to forge ahead, never yielding to uncertainty or worry.

Object Lessons

Cell Tower

Steven E. Jones, University of South Florida, USA The cell tower is a gigantic object we rarely see, effectively invisible, at the periphery of our vision but at the center of everyday experience. Cropping up everywhere, whether steel latticework or tapered monopoles, encrusted with fiberglass antennas, cell towers raise up high into the air the communications equipment that channels our calls, texts, and downloads. For security reasons, their locations are never advertised. But it’s our romantic notions of connectivity that hide them in plain sight. We want the network to be invisible, ethereal, and ubiquitous: the cell tower stands as a challenge to these desires.

Erik Anderson, Franklin & Marshall College, USA "Hope," as Emily Dickinson famously wrote, "is the thing with feathers." But Erik Anderson regards our obsession with birds as too sentimental, too precious or romantic. Birds don’t express hope. They express themselves. But this tension between the various versions of nature that lodge in our minds and the realities that surround us is the central concern of Bird. Anderson investigates our natural and metaphorical affinity for avifauna--our desire to confer on birds, as objects, human qualities like hope.

Object Lessons Environment

Rolf Halden, Arizona State University, USA Environment is an urgently needed stealth lesson in chemistry and sustainability in the run-up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. It addresses our avoidance of the physical realities of consumer choices and the resulting health effects for individuals, populations and the global ecosystems humanity depends upon. Eminent scientist Rolf Halden makes ‘the environment’ personal, newly mysterious, and emotionally engaging. Through a combination of personal narrative and creative storytelling, Halden creates a sense of wonder and appreciation for our planet whilst also making clear the genuine urgency to preserve the habitable space we are privileged to occupy and accustomed to take for granted.

Beyond Craft

Edited by Sean Prentiss, Norwich University, USA & Nicole Walker, Northern Arizona University, USA

Steve Westbrook & James Ryan

The Brain Behind Creative Nonfiction

Bringing together a diverse range of writers, The Science of Story is the first book to ask the question: what can contemporary brain science teach us about the art and craft of creative nonfiction writing? It asks questions such as why do humans tell stories; how do we remember and misremember our lives; what is the value of writing about trauma; how do stories make us laugh, or cry? Contributors: Nancer Ballard, Mike Branch, Frank Bures, J.T.

At the Dawn of the Digital Age Charles Chadwyck-Healey Since the 1960s, Sir Charles Chadwyck-Healey has been at the forefront of library publishing. In this wide ranging book, Chadwyck-Healey charts his personal history of this constantly changing field, from the earliest days of reprint publishing, through microfilm, microfiche and CD-ROM publishing to the current digital age.

An Anti-Handbook for Creative Writers Simultaneously a handbook and a meta critique of one, Beyond Craft combines an orientation to the field of creative writing with original scholarship on the very limitations of creative writing pedagogy. Teaching the craft whilst apprising students of the issues of craft pedagogy, this book allows them to gain an awareness of how current pedagogy comes at the expense of larger and increasingly relevant cultural concerns. The authors bring writers into the larger conversations that define their field so that they can contextualize their own experiences in relation to the discipline of writing.

Book Presence in a Digital Age

Edited by Kiene Brillenburg Wurth, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands, Kári Driscoll, Utrecht University, The Netherlands & Jessica Pressman, San Diego State University, USA Book Presence in a Digital Age explores the resilience and resurgence of print literatures, book art, and zines in the late age of print within both a contemporary and a historical perspective. Even as they focus on the materiality of books as bodies of literary writing in the present, the contributors seek to understand these present developments by considering them in the light of earlier “moments” of media transition. Book Presence in a Digital Age offers a new outlook on media plurality and divergence in the present, as well as on the resilience of books and paper as bearers of the literary.

Liberalism and Education


Francis O'Gorman, University of Edinburgh, UK

Francis O'Gorman, University of Edinburgh, UK

The Monopoly of an Idea

Francis O’Gorman examines the damaging consequences of a liberalism that seems almost obligatory within modern western universities and in literature and art. In the 20th century what had been open-minded inquiry gradually gathered an assumption that judgment, particularly moral judgment, had no part in a university education. Liberal values became the norm but the costs were not considered, including the rise of populism and nationalism. Because liberals have insisted that intolerance is morally unacceptable, the only forms of intolerance that we can now perceive are extreme. Liberalism has handed to the extremists the only realistic option for taking a different view.

Conan Doyle's Wide World Sherlock Holmes and Beyond Andrew Lycett Arthur Conan Doyle was not simply the creator of the world’s greatest detective; he was also an intrepid traveller and extraordinary travel writer. His descriptions of the journeys and adventures which took him over oceans to the Arctic and the Alps, and throughout Africa, Australia and North America, are full of insight, humour and exceptional evocations of place. For the first time, Andrew Lycett, Conan Doyle’s celebrated biographer, has illuminated this side of the great crime writer’s nature by gathering these captivating travelogues together.

"Forgetfulness is for anyone who wants to remember what it is like to read an intelligent and provocative book." Robert Hewison, cultural historian This is a book about modern culture and its profound rejection of the past. It charts emergence of the idea that what's important in human life and work is what will happen in the future. Forgetfulness asks what the absence of history does to our sense of purpose, as well as what belonging both to time and place might mean in cultures without a memory. It is written in praise of the best achievements and deeds of the past, but is also an expression of profound anxiety about what forgetting them is doing to us.

The Making of Samuel Beckett's Play/Comedie and Film Olga Beloborodova, Universiteit Antwerpen, Belgium

Beckett’s play Play / Comédie and his only film, Film, were written around the same time (19621963). Although medium-specific opportunities and challenges underlie their very different geneses, they have influenced each other in both form and content. Both works are grounded in technology and rely on explanatory notes for the members of their production teams, thus exposing the inherently collaborative nature of such projects. The genetic critical analysis of the manuscripts of Play / Comédie and Film not only contributes to the interpretation of each work separately but considers the two works together through the prism of Beckett’s multimedial authorship.

Modernist Lives

Biography and Autobiography at Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press Claire Battershill, Simon Fraser University, Canada Focusing on the biographies and autobiographies published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press from 1917-1946, Battershill shows the importance of publishing history in understanding modernist literary work and culture.

Understanding Adorno, Understanding Modernism

Edited by Robin Truth Goodman, Florida State University, USA Understanding Adorno, Understanding Modernism traces Adorno’s social and aesthetic ideas as they appear and reappear in his corpus. As per other volumes in the series, this book is divided into three parts. The first, “Adorno’s Keywords,” is organized by the aesthetic terms around which Adorno’s philosophy circulates. The second section is devoted to “Adorno and Aesthetics.” While Adorno’s philosophical viewpoints influenced modernism’s evolution into the twenty-first century, the history of modernist aesthetics also shaped his philosophical approaches. The third and final part, “Adorno’s Constellations,” discusses how aesthetic form in Adorno’s thinking underlies the terms of his social analysis.

Samuel Beckett in Confinement The Politics of Closed Space

James Little, Masaryk University, Czech Republic Prisons appear again and again in Samuel Beckett’s work – from the literal asylum central to Watt to the metaphors of confinement that appear throughout the prose and dramatic works such as Waiting for Godot. Drawing on spatial theory and new archival research, Samuel Beckett in Confinement explores these recurring ideas of confinement to cast new light on the ethical and political dimensions of Beckett’s work. Covering the full range of Beckett’s writing, the book shows how this engagement with the ethics of representing prisons and asylums stands at the heart of his poetics.

The Politics of 1930s British Literature Education, Class, Gender

Natasha Periyan, Falmouth University, UK Drawing on a rich array of archival sources and historical detail, The Politics of 1930s British Literature tells the story of a school-minded decade and illuminates new readings of the politics and aesthetics of 1930s literature. In a period of shifting political claims, educational policy shaped writers’ social and gender ideals. This book explores how a wide array of writers including Virginia Woolf, W.H.

Understanding Blanchot, Understanding Modernism

Edited by Christopher Langlois, Concordia University, Canada "Goes a good deal further than a reassessment of Blanchot's work in the context of what we might call modernism (since the term itself resonates by its very absence within Blanchot's oeuvre): as we put this book down we are reminded that Blanchot's work represents one of the profoundest meditations of the 20th century, but one which has nonetheless brought us closer to an understanding of the infinite and timeless power of literature itself."

Elsa Högberg, University of Uppsala, Sweden

Virginia Woolf and the Ethics of Intimacy explores the politics and ethics of Woolf's psychologically intimate literary method. The book reveals how the notions of intimacy central to Woolf's interwar novels - Jacob's Room, Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and The Waves - inform her political and ethical stances against violence, patriotism and war. Drawing on contemporary theory, including the works of Judith Butler, Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva, Elsa Högberg casts new light on the politics of modernism's aesthetic commitments.

Modernist Crisis and the Pedagogy of Form

Woolf, Delany, and Coetzee at the Limits of Fiction Matthew Cheney, Plymouth State University, USA What is the role of the author in times of crisis? Modernist Crisis and the Pedagogy of Form examines how Virginia Woolf, Samuel R. Delany, and J. M. Coetzee developed literary strategies in common to cope with crisis periods they were anticipating, living through, or looking back on. Matthew Cheney outlines how the three writers shaped their art to create an author/ audience relationship congruent with the goals of critical pedagogy espoused by such thinkers as Paulo Freire and bell hooks. Seeking to stimulate ethical thought, Woolf, Delany, and Coetzee required their readers to be active interpreters of their texts’ forms, contents, and contexts.

The Fictional Minds of Modernism

Narrative Cognition from Henry James to Christopher Isherwood Edited by Ricardo Miguel-Alfonso, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain Challenging the notion that modernism is marked by an “inward turn,” this collection delineates the relationship between the mind and material and social systems, refreshing our understanding of modernism’s representation of cognitive and affective processes. Through analysis of a variety of international novels, short stories, and films—all published roughly between 1890 and 1945—the contributors to this collection demonstrate how modernist narratives offer insights into the real, historical world not as a mere object of contemplation but as an object of knowledge, thus bridging the gap between classical narratology and modernist experimentation.

Material Spirituality in Modernist Women’s Writing Elizabeth Anderson, University of Glasgow, UK

For Virginia Woolf, H.D., Mary Butts and Gwendolyn Brooks, things mobilise creativity; traverse domestic, public and rural spaces; and stage the interaction between the sublime and the mundane. Ordinary things are rendered extraordinary by their spiritual or emotional significance. This book addresses the intersection of spirituality, things and places – both natural and built environments – in the work of these four women modernists.

Virginia Woolf and the Ethics of Intimacy

Edited by Jolanta Wawrzycka, Radford University, USA & Serenella Zanotti, Roma Tre University, Italy In this landmark book, leading international scholars from North America, Europe and the UK explore silence in the writings of James Joyce. Examining all of Joyce’s major works, including Ulysses, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake, the book studies the many different roles that silence plays in Joyce’s texts: aesthetic, rhetorical, textual and linguistic. Exploring the many dimensions of what is revealed in the absences that fill his writing, James Joyce’s Silences opens up important new avenues of scholarship on the great modernist writer.

Ecocritical Pedagogy and Poetics

Environmental and nature writing is an increasingly popular topic in the creative writing classroom. The first comprehensive study of teaching practice in this field, Teaching Environmental Writing critically reflects on how students are taught to write about the natural world. The book draws on interviews with teachers and students to bring insights from the classroom into conversation with close readings of contemporary environmental poetry informed by the latest developments in ecocriticism. From this conversation, Isabel Galleymore proposes a set of pedagogical exercises to expand the scope of nature writing education and help student writers engage more deeply with their environments.

Haunting and Environmental Justice in Contemporary Anglophone Novels Laura A. White, Middle Tennessee State University, USA Along with humans and animals, ghosts populate the pages of contemporary Anglophone novels. Ecospectrality analyses novels from across the world—including Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, India and Jamaica—to explore how these ghosts can help readers to perceive difficult to visualise environmental threats and access marginalised environmental knowledges. Instead of prompting fear, these hauntings foster understanding across species and generations to enable inclusive formulations of environmental justice. Drawing on the latest work in postcolonial ecocriticism, hauntology and environmental philosophy, this book is an essential read for anyone working in the environmental humanities today.

New insights from cognitive theory and literary ecocriticism have the power to transform our understanding of one of the most important literary genres: the lyric poem. In Cognitive Ecopoetics, Sharon Lattig brings these two schools of criticism together for the first time to consider the ways in which lyric forms reenact cognitive processes of the mind and brain. Along the way the book reads anew the long history of the lyric, from Andrew Marvell, through canonical poets such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Emily Dickinson to contemporary writers such as Susan Howe and Charles Olson.

Radical Animism


Jemma Deer, Harvard University, USA

Heidi C. M. Scott, University of Maryland, USA

Reading for the End of the World The reckoning of climate change calls for us to fundamentally re-think our notions of an anthropocentric world. Drawing on a wide range of modern writers and thinkers – from Freud and Darwin to Frazer and Derrida, from Shakespeare to Kafka, Woolf and Lispector – Radical Animism develops a new theory of life for our era of environmental crisis. In this important new work, Jemma Deer explores how the ‘animism’ of literature, literature’s capacity to exert a compelling and transformative life of its own on its readers can open our thinking to the power of the non-human world on our existence.

Reclaiming Romanticism

Graham Huggan, University of Leeds, UK

Kate Rigby, Monash University, Australia

The Cetacean Quartet

Towards an Ecopoetics of Decolonisation

Written by leading postcolonial critic Graham Huggan, Colonialism, Culture, Whales: The Cetacean Quartet explores how our attitudes to whales, whale-hunting and whale-watching expose colonial attitudes to the natural world in modern culture. Across four innovative, multi-disciplinary chapters, the book explores colonial histories of whaling, their legacies in contemporary tourism from whale-watching excursions to the performing orcas at SeaWorld, and cultural representations of anxieties of extinction in literature, film and television. Examining the relationship between colonialism and modernity, the book goes on to seek alternative paradigms for understanding the whale in native and aboriginal thought.

The earliest environmental criticism took its inspiration from the Romantic poets and their immersion in the natural world. Today the “romanticising” of nature has come to be viewed with suspicion. Written by one of the leading ecocritics writing today, Reclaiming Romanticism rediscovers the importance of the European Romantic tradition to the ways that writers and critics engage with the environment in the Anthropocene era. Exploring the work of such poets as Wordsworth, Shelley and Clare, the book discovers a rich vein of Romantic eco-materialism and brings these writers into dialogue with contemporary American and Australian poets and artists.

Thomas Bernhard's Afterlives

Edited by Olaf Berwald, Chair, Department of Foreign Languages, and Professor of German, Kennesaw State University, USA, Stephen D. Dowden, Professor of German Literature, Brandeis University, USA & Gregor Thuswaldner, Dean of Arts of Sciences and Professor of Humanities, North Park University, USA In his prose fiction, memoirs, poetry, and drama, Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989)—one of the twentieth century’s most uniquely gifted writers—created a new and radical style. His furious prose, seemingly shapeless but composed with unparalleled musicality, and taxing by conventional standards, has been echoed in many writers since Bernhard’s death in 1989. These explorers have found in Bernhard’s singular accomplishment new paths for the expression of life and truth. Writers in Italian, German, Spanish, Hungarian, English, and French have succeeded in making Bernhard’s Austrian vision an international vision. Thomas Bernhard's Afterlives tells that story.

Sissi’s World

The Empress Elisabeth in Memory and Myth Edited by Maura E. Hametz, Old Dominion University, USA & Heidi Schlipphacke, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA Sissi’s World offers a transdisciplinary approach to the study of the Habsburg Empress Elizabeth of Austria, a Bavarian duchess born in 1837, the longest-serving Austrian empress, and the queen of Hungary who died in 1898 at the hands of a crazed anarchist. Despite the continuing fascination with "the beloved Sissi," the Habsburg empress, her impact, and legacy have received scant attention from scholars. This collection goes beyond the popular biographical accounts, recountings of her mythic beauty, and scattered studies of her well-known eccentricities to offer transdisciplinary cultural perspectives across art, film, fashion, history, literature, and media.

Romantic Enchantment Fantasy, Theology and Affect Gavin Hopps

From Flannery O’Connor and James Baldwin to the post-9/11 writings of Jonathan Franzen and Don DeLillo, imaginative writers have often been the most insightful chroniclers of the USA’s changing religious life since the end of World War 2. Exploring a wide range of writers from Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and secular writers, this book is an in-depth study of contemporary fiction’s engagement with religious faith, identity and practice. By reading the major writers of our time, Mark Eaton discovers a more nuanced picture of the varieties of American religious experience than commonplace cultural ideas of progressive secularisation or faith-based polarization might suggest.

Despite the burgeoning popularity of fantasy fiction and the increasing recognition of its spiritual significance and subversive effects, criticism of Romantic literature has often dismissed elements of the fantastic in the work of such canonical writers as Byron and Keats as matters of escapism, false-consciousness or wish-fulfilment. In Romantic Enchantment, Gavin Hopps challenges this view and offers an alternative 'post-nihilistic' reading of the fantastic gestures and transcendent aspirations of Romantic poetry. Drawing on the seminal reflections of George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien on fantasy, this interdisciplinary study provides a provocative riposte to materialist interpretations of Romantic writing.

Truth, Meaning, Fiction

In this full-career reassessment of J. M. Coetzee, Anthony Uhlmann illuminates the intellectual and philosophical interests that drive Coetzee’s writing. Whilst looking at Coetzee’s writing career, from his dissertation through to The Schooldays of Jesus (2016), Uhlmann also offers revealing glimpses, informed by archival research, of Coetzee’s writing process. Among the main themes that Uhlmann draws out from Coetzee’s writing, and which remain highly relevant today, are the ideas that there is truth in fiction, or that fiction can provide valuable understandings of real world problems, and there are also fictions of the truth: that we are surrounded, in our everyday lives, by stories we wish to believe are true.

Afropolitan Literature as World Literature Edited by James Hodapp, Northwestern University, Qatar

What is the new, Afropolitan vision of Africa’s place in the world offered by African writers of the 21st century? How does it differ from that of previous generations? Why do some dissent? Afropolitanism refuses to reinforce images of Africa in world media as merely poor, war-torn, diseased, and constantly falling into chaos. Complicating the image of Africa as a hapless victim, Afropolitanism focuses on the wide-ranging influence Africa has on the world. However, some have characterized this kind of writing as light, populist fare that panders to Western audiences. Afropolitan Literature as World Literature examines this controversy in light of the unprecedented circulation of culture made possible by globalization.

Beyond the Haunted House

Shirley Jackson and Domesticity takes on American horror writer Shirley Jackson's domestic narratives— those fictionalized in her novels and short stories as well as the ones captured in her memoirs—to explore the extraordinary and often supernatural ways domestic practices and the ecology of the home influence Jackson’s storytelling. Examining various areas of homemaking—child-rearing and reproduction, housekeeping, architecture and spatiality, the housewife mythos— through the theoretical frameworks of gothic, queer, gender, supernatural, humor, and architectural studies, this collection contextualizes Jackson’s archive in a Cold War framework and assesses the impact of the work of a writer seeking to question the status quo of her time and culture.

Stowe, Hawthorne, and Melville The Logic of Sentiment is a study of sentimentality, a literary mode that aims to answer the question, “What holds us together?” Against the grain of cultural studies, which understands sentimentality as consolidating communities on the basis of material or historical foundations, Kenneth Dauber takes a philosophical approach. He argues that sentimentality is a mode of love conceptualized in the denial of skepticism, understood as a problem of people’s otherness to each other. The Logic of Sentiment traces the movement from sentimentality to realism, the relation between epistemology and ethics, and the kind of investments that writers attempt to solicit from their readers.

Hsuan L. Hsu, University of California, Davis, USA The Ruins of Urban Modernity examines Thomas Pynchon's 2006 novel Against the Day through the critical lens of urban spatiality. As the complex novel collapses and rebuilds anew the spatial imaginaries underlying the popular fictions of urban modernity, Utku Mogultay explores how such creative disfiguration throws light on the contemporary urban world.

The Literature of Catastrophe

Rebecca Tillett, University of East Anglia, UK

Carlos Fonseca, Cambridge University, UK

Leslie Marmon Silko's Almanac of the Dead Leslie Marmon Silko's 1991 novel Almanac of the Dead is a profound and challenging analysis of late capitalist society and how powerful minority elites ensure that their power is never challenged nor shared, through the complicit discourses of imperialism, patriarchy, religion, medicine, science and technology. Rebecca Tillett assesses the continued relevance of Almanac's vision of oppressive capitalism. Perhaps most importantly, this study provides a groundbreaking reading of Almanac for the 21st century, comparing Silko's activist armies with international popular social justice activism such as the Arab Spring and the international Occupy movement.

Prison Writing of Latin America Joey Whitfield, Cardiff University, UK

"Offers both a theoretical reflection around notions of penality and a specific study of literary and artistic representations of prison culture in a modern Latin-American context. It is very effective on both levels ... The corpus is varied and helps unfold a broad-ranging and complex set of considerations about state punishment that is sensitive to ambiguity and contradiction while maintaining a kind of committed ethical thrust. An extremely valuable book." Philip Swanson, University of Sheffield, UK "A book that must be read by anyone concerned with criticism of the Penal State and alternative paths toward social justice in the continent." R.

Nature, Disaster and Revolution in Latin America Through a study of philosophical, literary and artistic representations of three catastrophic figures – earthquakes, volcanoes and epidemics – this book investigates how nature and history intertwined during the violent aftermath of the Spanish American Wars of Independence. Engaging a variety of sources and protagonists, from Simón Bolívar’s manifestoes to Cesar Aira’s use of landscape in his novels, from the revolutionary role mosquitoes had within the Haitian Revolution to the role AIDS played in the writing of Reinaldo Arenas’ posthumous novel, Carlos Fonseca offers an original retelling of this foundational moment, recounting how history has become a site where the modern division between nature and culture collapses.

Lyrical Ballards

The Wounded Romanticism of J. G. Ballard Thomas Knowles Lyrical Ballards is a ground-breaking enquiry into J. G. Ballard’s position in the English canon and argues for his being read through the lens of Romanticism. Examining the history, politics, and aesthetics of Ballard’s most celebrated works including Empire of the Sun, High-Rise, Crash, and The Atrocity Exhibition, this book brings to light a series of startling and unexpected Romantic legacies that live within his science fiction worlds. A major contribution to the growing field of J. G. Ballard studies and Romantic legacies, Thomas Knowles’ explorations of works illuminate important implications for how we read Ballard and Romanticism.

War, Nation and Europe in the Novels of Storm Jameson Katherine Cooper, University of East Anglia, UK

War, Nation and Europe in the Novels of Storm Jameson is a timely critique situated within the historical and theoretical contexts so fundamental to understanding Jameson's work. Presenting previously unpublished archival material that documents her work as an ambassador for British writers during a time of national upheaval, Katherine Cooper reveals how the novelist’s pacifism and evolving attitudes to war and peace were underpinned by her overarching vision for the post-war world. Drawing comparisons to the works of Virginia Woolf, Graham Green and others, this study shows how Jameson’s novels reshape how we view the literary history of the period.

Tony Brown, University of Minnesota, USA This study of "analytical fiction" examines how unconsummated love stories probe the frailty of self-knowledge. Tracing elements of the roman d'analyse in the works of Boccaccio, Marguerite de Navarre, Cervantes, Marie de Lafayette, Samuel Richardson, Jane Austen, and Stendhal, Adele Kudish discusses how the metaphor of unconsummated love is deployed to represent a fundamental lack of insight into the self.

Does the Internet Have an Unconscious? Slavoj Žižek and Digital Culture

Clint Burnham, Simon Fraser University, Canada "Clint Burnham does not merely apply psychoanalysis to the internet; he demonstrates how the unconscious itself is 'structured like the internet,' how our entanglement in the impenetrable digital web allows us to understand properly the way the unconscious overdetermines our thinking and activities. This is why Burnham’s path-breaking book reaches much deeper than the usual analyses of the social and psychological implications of the internet: it does not just socialize and historicise the internet, it throws a new light on the unconscious itself."

Hunger, Poetry and the Oxford Movement The Tractarian Social Vision

Lesa Scholl, University of Adelaide, Australia Focusing on the influence of the Oxford Movement on key British poets of the nineteenth-century, this book charts their ruminations on the nature of hunger, poverty and economic injustice. Exploring the works of Christina Rossetti, Coventry Patmore, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Adelaide Anne Procter, Alice Meynell and Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Lesa Scholl examines the extent to which these poets – not all of whom were Anglo-Catholics themselves – engaged with the Tractarian social vision when grappling with issues of poverty and economic injustice in and beyond their poetic works.

At the Risk of Thinking

An Intellectual Biography of Julia Kristeva Alice A. Jardine, Harvard University, USA Edited by Mari Ruti, University of Toronto, Canada This is the first biography of Julia Kristeva—one of the most celebrated intellectuals in the world. Her over 50 books, translated across the globe, address such topics as the history of love, questions surrounding female genius, new forms of revolt, and the importance of understanding the history and influence of religion. This new biography brings her work to a broader readership by connecting Kristeva’s personal journey with the history of her ideas. Informed by interviews with Kristeva, it clearly analyzes the complexities of Kristeva’s contributions, with emphasis on her call for an urgent revival of bold interdisciplinary thinking in order to understand and act in our own time.

J.R.R. Tolkien

Emma Lieber, National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, USA The Writing Cure tells four interlocking stories about author Emma Lieber: her time as a scholar of Russian literature; her decade-long analysis; her becoming a psychoanalyst; and the end of her marriage. It does so by tracing dreams, scenes, and signifiers that emerged from her analysis while also undertaking a critical exploration of works of psychoanalytic theory and literary texts. Most centrally, it articulates what psychoanalysis does for its patients by writing the moment of its termination—at the same time as it examines both the end of a marriage and the passage from a literary scholar to a psychoanalyst.

The Emergence of Literature

Posing Sex

Jacob Bittner, Independent Scholar, Denmark

Alan Singer, Temple University, USA

An Archaeology of Modern Literary Theory

The Emergence of Literature is an extension and reworking of a series of significant propositions in philosophy and literary theory: Jean-Luc Nancy and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe’s examination of the concept of the literary absolute, Martin Heidegger’s destruction and Giorgio Agamben’s archaeology of the metaphysics of will, Maurice Blanchot’s delimitation of the space of literature and Michel Foucault’s archaeology of literature. Its core contribution to the history of theory is to understand the literary absolute not simply as philosophical concept, but as a paradigm that delimits the horizon for currents of literary theory through the course of the 20th century where the literary criteria change from the theme of sincerity to the theme of the death of the author.

Affect, Psychoanalysis, and American Poetry This Feeling of Exaltation

From modernists to mid-century poets, and finally to contemporary practitioners, John Steen argues that new poetic techniques arise from the poetic productivity of negative affects, and that a new model of poetic value can be found in poems that are permeable, social spaces of intimacy, attachment, and withdrawal.

Living Philosophy in Kierkegaard, Melville, and Others

Intersections of Literature, Philosophy, and Religion Edward F. Mooney, Syracuse University, USA Edward F. Mooney takes us into the lived philosophies of Melville, Kierkegaard, Henry Bugbee, and others who write deeply in ways that bring philosophy and religion into the fabric of daily life, in its simplicities, crises, and moments of communion and joy. Along the way Mooney explores mediations on wilderness, on the enigma of self-deception, the role of maternal love and the pain of separations, and the pervasiveness of “difficult reality” where valuable things are presented to us under two (or more) aspects at once.

Toward a Perceptual Ethics for Literary and Visual Art "This risk-taking, fearless book is a continually rewarding act of looking and feeling and thinking, insisting on their intimacy but also enacting it on the page, where Singer's intellectual reach and analytical rigor produce an abundance of arresting perceptions of sensuous aesthetic experience." Ross Posnock, Columbia University, USA Posing Sex views the long and provocative tradition of representing the sexual act in Western art as an occasion for challenging assumptions about personhood. Singer draws upon a rich philosophical tradition—from the Greek Stoics, Descartes, Spinoza, and Hegel to contemporary theorists—to show how the stakes of aesthetic experience epitomized in the sex-image are essentially ethical.

Art as Synaesthesia Paul Gordon, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA Paul Gordon proposes a new theory of art as synaesthetic and applies this idea to various media, including works—such as movies, illustrated books and song lyrics—that explicitly cross over into media involving the different senses. The idea of art as synaesthetic is not, however, limited to those “cross-over” works because even an individual poem or novel or painting calls upon different senses in creating its syn-aesthetic “meaning.” Although previous studies have often devolved into those who see an obvious connection between art and synesthesia and those who adamantly reject such a notion, Synaesthetics furthers our understanding of synesthesia as an important, if not essential, component of artistic expression.

From Plato to Atwood

Utopia and its Discontents traces literary representations of ideal communities from Plato to the 21st century. Each chapter offers close readings of key utopian and anti-utopian texts to demonstrate how they construct, challenge and explore the ideas and forms of earlier utopian writings and the social and political ideals of their own historical times. The book explores how literary utopias are often as much about the past as they are about the present and the future. With annotated chapter by chapter guides to further reading, this is an essential study for students and scholars of Utopian literature.

Deteriorations of the Event During some of the most demanding years of the twentieth century two distinctive bodies of work sought to respond to this problem: the writings of Maurice Blanchot and American film noir. Understanding how this darkness became the means of responding to the darkness of the times is the focus of Noir and Blanchot, which examines key films from the period (including Double Indemnity and Vertigo) alongside Blanchot’s writings (particularly his 1948 narrative Death Sentence). What emerges from this investigation is the complex manner in which these works disrupt the experience of time and the event and in doing so expose an entirely different mode of material expression.

Reading works by leading contemporary writers such as Zadie Smith, Alex Haley, Octavia Butler and Salman Rushdie, Biofictions demonstrates how ideas of race are produced from intersecting genetic and fictional narratives which together create stories about racism, ancestry and kinship.

The trajectory in between illustrates that the detective and mystery genres continue unabated their stock yellowface characters, who exude a magnetic field so powerful as to pull in Japanese anime.

The Metamorphoses of Myth in Fiction since 1960 Kathryn Hume, Penn State University, USA

Why do contemporary writers use myths from ancient Greece and Rome, Pharaonic Egypt, the Viking north, Africa’s west coast, and Hebrew and Christian traditions? What do these stories from premodern cultures have to offer us? The Metamorphoses of Myth in Fiction since 1960 examines how myth has shaped writings by Acker, Atwood, Burroughs, Byatt, Gaiman, Hoban, Mailer, Morrison, Reed, Powers, Pynchon, Vonnegut, and Winterson, among others, and contrasts such canonical texts with fantasy, speculative fiction, post-singularity fiction, pornography, horror, and graphic narratives. Working across genres, populations, and critical perspectives, Kathryn Hume elicits an understanding of the current uses of mythology in fiction.

Framing Literary Humour

Cells, Masks and Bodies as 20th-Century Sites of Imprisonment Jeanne Mathieu-Lessard, University of Ottawa, Canada Contrary to their oppressive design, could structures of imprisonment actually incite humour, itself a form of liberation? Starting with the most obvious areas of imprisonment (war camps, prison cells) and moving to the less obvious (masks, bodies), Framing Literary Humour demonstrates how 20th-century humour in theory and in fiction cannot be fully understood without a careful look at its connection with the notion of imprisonment. Understanding imprisonment as a concrete spatial setting or a metaphorical image, Jeanne Mathieu-Lessard analyzes selected works of Romain Gary, Giovannino Guareschi, Wyndham Lewis, Vladimir Nabokov, and Luigi Pirandello to reconfigure confinement as an essential structural condition for the emergence of humour.

Jonathan Crimmins, University of Virginia’s College at Wise, USA Focusing attention on Romantic conceptions of history’s connection to the future, The Romantic Historicism to Come examines the complications of not only Romantic historicism, but also our own contemporary critical methods: what would it mean if the causal assumptions that underpin our historical judgments do not themselves develop in a stable, notional, progressive manner? Steering a middle course between historical teleology and random disconnection, Jonathan Crimmins creates a theoretical apparatus that can account for the mutual interaction of the scientific and the sociocultural without collapsing one into the other.

Luigi Pirandello

This collection brings together the four plays that feature Ionesco’s everyman protagonist Jean Bérenger. While each play in the Bérenger cycle is unique, they are all prime examples of Ionesco’s conception of the theatre of the absurd, and touch on themes that preoccupied Ionesco throughout his career, such as mortality, alienation, freedom and the evils of Fascism. This volume constitutes a perfect introduction to one of the twentieth century’s most original and influential playwrights.

Translated by Felicity Firth, Robert Rietty, John Wardle, Bruce Penman & Carlo Ardito This selection of plays by Luigi Pirandello contains some of his best-known works, such as Six Characters in Search of an Author and Henry IV. Preoccupied with the nature of truth and delusion, and treading dangerously on the borderline between sanity and madness, Pirandello’s plays are a daring exploration of human actions and the dark motives lying behind them, and the culmination of the naturalistic school of theatre inaugurated by authors such as Ibsen and Chekhov.

In this volume of typographical poems, or “concrete poems”, Alan Riddell weaves words and the very letters they’re made of into shapes and patterns that heighten or, in some cases, completely undermine the professed message of the poems. When Eclipse was first published in 1972, concrete poetry was still a relatively new art form, and this book was the first substantial one-man collection to be published in Britain. Now, almost fifty years since its inception, this volume provides a unique perspective on the cutting-edge technique.

The Bérenger Plays

First published in French magazines in the 1960s, the essays and interviews collected in this volume tackle two of Sartre’s most enduring concerns as a philosopher: politics and literature. With regard to the former, they develop the notion of the intellectual not only as an aloof theoretician, but also as a constructive agent of change. His writings on literature explore the limitations of language as an exact vehicle for meaning, the author’s lack of ownership of his own words and the avenues that certain types of theatre such as Artaud’s open for non-verbal communication.

Alan Burns has been described by a character in Ian McEwan's novel 'Sweet Tooth' as by far the best experimentalist in this country. He was associated with the 1960s British experimental circle of writers led by B.S. Johnson. Europe after the Rain takes its title from Max Ernst’s surrealist work, which depicts a vision of rampant destruction – a theme which Burns here takes to its conclusion, showing man not merely trying to come to terms with desolation, but combating human cruelty with that resilience of spirit without which survival would be impossible. Upon the novel’s first publication, Burns was heralded as presenting a picture of his age and capturing the ‘collective unconscious’ of the twentieth century – in a language that can have few rivals for economy, beauty and rhythm.

Women’s Labour and the History of the Book in Early Modern England Edited by Valerie Wayne, University of Hawaii at Mano, USA This collection brings to light many of the women whose labour was important to the creation and consumption of early modern English books, from those who raked linen rags out of London’s dunghills for producing paper, to those who operated printing presses and financed the production of books, sold them, wrote them, edited them, owned and read them. The essays in this collection locate and assess women’s influence in the book trade. By considering women from differing backgrounds who engaged in manual, commercial, familial and literary forms of labour, this collection recovers women’s participation in book history as never before.

Shakespeare and Posthumanist Theory Karen Raber, University of Mississippi, USA

This book charts challenges in the field of Shakespeare studies to the assumption that the category 'human' is real, stable, or worthy of privileging in discussions of the playwright’s work. Drawing on a variety of methodologies – cognitive theory, systems theory, animal studies, ecostudies, the new materialisms – the volume investigates the world of Shakespeare’s plays and poems in order to represent more thoroughly its variety, its ethics of inclusion, and its resistance to human triumphalism and exceptionalism.

Shakespeare in the Theatre: The National Theatre, 1963–1975 Olivier and Hall

Robert Shaughnessy, University of Surrey, UK The National Theatre’s years at the Old Vic were the most Shakespearean period in its history, one which included Laurence Olivier’s Othello and Shylock, a radical all-male As You Like It, the Berliner Ensemble’s Coriolanus and Tom Stoppard’s classic offshoot, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern are Dead. Drawing extensively upon the company archives, this book tells the interlinked stories of the National’s relationship with Shakespeare through a series of production case studies that illuminate Olivier’s significance as actor and director, the National’s pioneering accommodation of European theatre practitioners, and its ways of engaging Shakespeare with the contemporary.

Childhood in Contemporary Performance of Shakespeare

New Places: Shakespeare and Civic Creativity

Gemma Miller, King’s College London, UK

Child characters feature more numerously and prominently in the Shakespearean canon than in that of any other early modern playwright. Focusing on stage and film productions from the past four decades, this study addresses how Shakespeare's child characters are reflected, refracted and reinterpreted in performance. By adopting an inter-disciplinary approach that incorporates close reading, historicist literary criticism, semiotics, childhood studies, queer theory and performance studies, Gemma Miller explores the ways in which performing childhood in Shakespeare’s plays can reveal often uncomfortable truths about ideas of childhood, both in the early modern period and today.

Edited by Paul Edmondson, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, UK & Ewan Fernie, University of Birmingham, UK New Places documents and analyses a range of innovative projects which take Shakespeare beyond the worlds of education and even the theatre, in an attempt to make a difference in the wider world. Mixing critical reflection on the social value of Shakespeare and creative writing, the volume presents Carol Ann Duffy’s Shakespeare Ode for 2016, the first ever open-air performance of The Merchant of Venice in that city’s original Jewish Ghetto, a new Shakespeare-inspired liturgy, civic-minded opera and ballet, international Shakespeare clubs and societies, and a creative practice of rehabilitating soldiers returned from war through Shakespeare.
