"A strong and innovative book. The End of Airports finds new ways to think about, among other things, drones, airport/aircraft seating, weather, jet bridges, viral stories about flight, tensions with new media expectations and technologies, and seatback pockets. A fascinating read for anyone interested in airports and airplanes, but also for readers of cultural studies, media studies, and creative nonfiction." Kathleen C. Stewart, The University of Texas at Austin, USA "Thanks to Schaberg the airport may become the new figure with which to think place, time, labor, leisure, organization, and communication, as well as hope, fatigue, loneliness, and desire."

Poetry: A Survivor's Guide Mark Yakich, Loyola University New Orleans, USA "Yakich’s irreverent style, conversational tone, and quirky illustrations make for a guide that will be both instructive and entertaining for anyone interested in learning more about reading and writing poetry." Publishers Weekly "If you’re a poet, this book will remind you of the reasons why you fell in love with the art in the first place. If you’re a reader falling in love with the art in the first place, it might just make you a poet." Srikanth Reddy, University of Chicago, USA "A funny, brash, sweet, in-your-face, humble, questioning, advicedispensing, and utterly smart-as-hell book."

The Bloomsbury Introduction to Adaptation Studies Adapting the Canon in Film, TV, Novels and Popular Culture Yvonne Griggs, University of New England, Australia Adaptations of literary classics are a constant feature of popular culture today. This textbook helps students master the history, theory and practice of analysing literary adaptations. The book includes chapter overviews and a glossary of critical terms to give students quick access to key information for further study, reference and revision and covers adaptations of: Frankenstein; Little Women; Jane Eyre; Great Expectations; The Turn of the Screw; Hamlet; The Great Gatsby; One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest; Atonement.

Armen Avanessian & Anke Hennig, both at Free University Berlin, Germany “Drawing on narratology, cognitive science, deconstruction and philosophy of language, Avanessian and Hennig reconceptualize the relation between time and narrative; what is more, they rethink poetics as an expanded cultural theory concerned with human world-making. An impressive tour de force.” Andreas Gailus, University of Michigan, USA

The End of Airports

The invention of the present-tense novel is a literary event whose importance is on par with the discovery of perspective in painting. This book describes how the present tense was invented and why the poetics of the present tense novel is essential for an understanding of contemporary literature and the evolution of the novel since modernism.

Macbeth, Macbeth Ewan Fernie, University of Birmingham, UK & Simon Palfrey William Shakespeare’s Macbeth – pored over by students and critics for generations – is one of the most familiar works of literature in the Western canon. Macbeth, Macbeth explores how, through the act of re-imagining the story of the play, we as readers might return to Shakespeare’s tragedy with fresh eyes. In Macbeth, Macbeth, Ewan Fernie and Simon Palfrey construct a prose adaptation of the Macbeth story, with critical commentary throughout, exploring the process of adaptation from the inside and its roots and sources in Shakespeare’s text.

The Modes of Modern Writing Metaphor, Metonymy, and the Typology of Modern Literature David Lodge The Modes of Modern Writing tackles some of the fundamental questions we encounter when studying or reading literature, such as: what is literature? What is realism? What is relationship between form and content? In answering these questions, the book examines texts by a wide range of modern novelists and poets, including James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett and Philip Larkin, and draws on the work of literary theorists from Roman Jakobson to Roland Barthes. The Bloomsbury Revelations edition includes a new Foreword and Afterword by the author.

British Working-Class Fiction

The Slow Philosophy of J.M. Coetzee

Narratives of Refusal and the Struggle Against Work

Jan Wilm

Roberto del Valle Alcalá British Working-Class Fiction offers an account of British literary responses to work from the ‘affluent’ 1950s to the onset of the ‘Great Recession’. Alcalá argues that throughout this period, workingclass writing developed new strategies of resistance against the social discipline imposed by capitalist work. Drawing on the work of theorists including Deleuze and Guattari, Giorgio Agamben and Antonio Negri Alcalá offers an innovative account of British literary treatments of work. The book includes close readings of fiction by Alan Sillitoe, David Storey, Nell Dunn, Pat Barker, James Kelman, Irvine Welsh, Monica Ali, and Joanna Kavenna.

Rethinking Joseph Conrad’s Concepts of Community Strange Fraternity Kaoru Yamamoto Rethinking Joseph Conrad’s Concepts of Community uses Conrad’s phrase ‘strange fraternity’ from The Rover as a starting point for an exploration of the concept of community in his writing, including his neglected vignettes and later stories. Drawing on the work of continental thinkers including Jacques Derrida, Jean Luc-Nancy and Hannah Arendt Yamamoto offers original readings of The Heart of Darkness, The Nigger of the ‘Narcissus’, The Rover and Suspense and the short stories “The Secret Sharer”, “The Warrior’s Soul” and “The Duel”. Working at the intersection between literature and philosophy this is unique and interdisciplinary engagement with Conrad’s work.

Merri Lisa Johnson, University of South Carolina, USA "An informed, provocative, important book."

Susannah B. Mintz provides readings of canonical writers including John Donne, Emily Dickinson, and Samuel Beckett, alongside contemporary writers such as Ana Castillo and Margaret Edson and writers in a wide range of genres: poetry, memoir, drama, and fiction.

In The Slow Philosophy of J.M. Coetzee Jan Wilm analyses Coetzee’s singular aesthetic style which, he argues, provokes the reader to read his works slowly. Drawing on fresh archival material, this is the first study of its kind to explore Coetzee’s writing process as already slow; as a program of seemingly relentless revision which brings forth his uniquely dense and crystalline style. The book includes close readings of Coetzee's popular and lesser known work, including Disgrace, Waiting for the Barbarians, Elizabeth Costello, Life and Times of Michael K and Slow Man.

The Pathos of Distance Affects of the Moderns Jean-Michel Rabaté, University of Pennsylvania, USA Rabaté uses Nietzsche’s image of a “pathos of distance,” the notion that certain values cannot originate in a community but are created by a few gifted and lofty individuals, as the basis for a wide-ranging investigation into the ethics of the moderns. By first establishing an unlikely meeting of Nietzsche and Benjamin through their ideas of history and ethics, Rabaté is able to provide an original genealogy for the ethics of the modern, moving through figures and moments as varied as Yeats, Woolf, Rilke, Apollinaire, Gide, Derrida, and Joyce. The result is a fascinating critique of Nietzsche, Benjamin, affect theory, and the origins of the ethics of modernism.

The New Human in Literature Posthuman Visions of Changes in Body, Mind and Society after 1900 Mads Rosendahl Thomsen, Aarhus University, Denmark Twentieth-century literature changed understandings of what it meant to be human. Mads Rosendahl Thomsen here chronicles literature's changing ideas of mankind, questioning the degree to which literature records and creates visions of the new human. Grounded in the theory of Niklas Luhmann, Thomsen uses literary changes in the mind, body and society to define the new human. He begins with the modernist minds of Virginia Woolf, Williams Carlos Williams and Louis-Ferdinand Celine's, the society-changing concepts envisioned by Chinua Achebe, Mo Yan and Orhan Pamuk and ends with Don DeLillo and Michel Houellebecq's ideas of revolutionizing man through biotechnology.

Series Editors: Ian Bogost, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA and Christopher Schaberg, Loyola University New Orleans, USA. Object Lessons is a series of concise, collectable, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. Each book starts from a specific inspiration: an historical event, a literary passage, a personal narrative, a technological innovation—and from that starting point explores the object of the title, gleaning a singular lesson or multiple lessons along the way. Featuring contributions from writers, artists, scholars, journalists, and others, the emphasis throughout is lucid writing, imagination, and brevity. Object Lessons paints a picture of the world around us, and tells the story of how we got here, one object at a time.

Glass

Hotel

John Garrison, Carroll University, USA

Joanna Walsh, Writer and Illustrator, UK

Look around and you will see that you are surrounded by glass. It reflects and refracts light through your windows; it encircles a glowing filament above you; it’s in a mirror hanging on the wall; it lies shattered in a dented corner of an iPhone—you’re drinking water out of a pint glass. Taking up a most common object, rarely considered because assumed to be transparent, John Garrison draws evocative connections between historical depictions of glass and emerging visions that see it as holding a unique promise for new forms of interaction.

Phone Booth

“A slim, sharp meditation on hotels and desire.” The Paris Review

Object Lessons

“Joanna Walsh is fast becoming one of our most important writers. Hotel is a dazzling tour de force of embodied ideas.” Deborah Levy, author of Black Vodka Luxury, sex, power, anonymity, privacy: hotels are where our desires go on holiday, but also places where our desires are shaped by the hard realities of the marketplace. Part memoir and part meditation, Hotel visits a series of rooms, suites, hallways, and lobbies—the spaces and things that make up these modern sites of gathering and alienation: hotels.

Ariana Kelly, Harvard-Westlake School, USA "Fascinated and attuned, I was cabled into Phone Booth. Ariana Kelly replenishes the work on speculative telephony in an altogether compelling way." Avital Ronell, New York University, USA The phone booth exists as a fond but distant memory for some people, and as a strange and dysfunctional waste of space for many more. Ariana Kelly approaches the phone booth as an entity that embodies diverse attitudes about privacy, freedom, power, sanctuary, and communication in its various forms all around the world. Through portrayals of phone booths in literature, film, personal narrative, philosophy, and religion, Phone Booth offers a definitive account of an object on the cusp of obsolescence.

Silence John Biguenet, Loyola University, New Orleans, USA "When I realized I was making notes on memorable passages in Silence several times a page, I knew I’d found the book I’ve been needing to read." Valerie Martin, Orange Prize-winning novelist

Refrigerator Jonathan Rees, Colorado State University Pueblo, USA It may be responsible for a greater improvement in human diet and longevity than any other technology of the last two thousand years—but have you ever thought seriously about your refrigerator? That box humming in the background displays more than you might expect, even who you are and the society in which you live. Jonathan Rees examines the past, present, and future of the household refrigerator with the aim of preventing its users from ever taking it for granted again. No mere container for cold Cokes and celery stalks, the refrigerator acts as a mirror—and what it reflects is chilling indeed.

Waste Brian Thill, Golden West College, USA

What is silence? In a series of short meditations, novelist and playwright John Biguenet considers silence as a servant of power, as a lie, as a punishment, as the voice of God, as a terrorist’s final weapon, as a luxury good, as the reason for torture— in short, as an object we both do and do not recognize. Concluding with the prospects for its future in a world burgeoning with noise, Biguenet asks whether we should desire or fear silence—or if it is even ours to choose.

Though we try to imagine otherwise, waste is every object, plus time. Whatever else an object is, it’s also waste—or was, or will be. All that is needed is time or a change of sentiment or circumstance. Waste is not merely the field of discarded objects, but the name we give to our troubled relationship with the decaying world outside ourselves. Waste focuses on those waste objects that most fundamentally shape our lives and also attempts to understand our complicated emotional and intellectual relationships to our own refuse: nuclear waste, climate debris, pop-culture rubbish, digital detritus, and more.

Bookshelf

Cigarette Lighter

Lydia Pyne, University of Texas of Austin, USA

Jack Pendarvis, Freelance Writer, USA

Every shelf is different and every bookshelf tells a different story. Lydia Pyne finds bookshelves to be holders not just of books but of so many other things: values, vibes, and verbs that can be contained and displayed in the buildings and rooms of contemporary human existence. With a shrewd eye toward this particular moment in the history of books, Pyne takes the reader on a tour of the bookshelf that leads critically to this juncture: amid rumors of the death of book culture, why is the life of the bookshelf in full bloom?

Smokers, survivalists, teenagers, collectors… The cigarette lighter is a charged, complex, yet often entirely disposable object that moves across these various groups of people, acquiring and emitting different meanings while always supplying its primary function, that of ignition. Jack Pendarvis explodes the lighter as something with deep history, as something with quirky episodes in cultural contexts, and as something that dances with wide ranging taboos and traditions. Pendarvis shows how the lighter tarries with the cheapest ends of consumer culture as much as it displays more profound dramas of human survival, technological advances, and aesthetics.

Dust Michael Marder, University of the Basque Country, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain Dust pervades everything. It gathers in even layers, adapting to the contours of things and marking the passage of time. In itself, it is also a gathering place, a random community of what has been and what is yet to be: dead skin cells and plant pollen, hair and paper fibers, and dust mites. Dust blurs the boundaries between the living and the dead, plant and animal matter, the inside and the outside, you and the world. Dust treats one of the most mundane and familiar phenomena, showing how it can provide a key to thinking about existence, community, and justice today.

Hood Alison Kinney, Freelance Writer, New York, USA We all wear hoods: the Grim Reaper, Red Riding Hood, torturers, executioners and the executed, athletes, laborers, anarchists, rappers, babies in onesies, and anyone who’s ever grabbed a hoodie on a chilly day. Alison Kinney’s Hood explores the material and symbolic vibrancy of this everyday garment and political semaphore, which often protects the powerful at the expense of the powerless—with deadly results. Kinney considers medieval clerics and the Klan, anti-hoodie campaigns and the Hooded Man of Abu Ghraib, the Inquisition and the murder of Trayvon Martin, uncovering both the hooded perpetrators of violence and the hooded victims in their sights.

Shipping Container Craig Martin, The University of Edinburgh, UK The shipping container is all around: whizzing by on the highway, trundling past on rails, unloading behind a big box store even as you shop there, clanking on the docks just out of sight. 90% of the goods and materials that move around the globe do so in shipping containers. It is an absolutely ubiquitous object, even if most of us have no direct contact with it. But what is this thing? Where has it been, and where is it going? Craig Martin’s book illuminates the “development of containerization”—including design history, standardization, aesthetics, and a surprising speculative discussion of the futurity of shipping containers.

Questionnaire Evan Kindley, Claremont McKenna College, USA Questionnaires are everywhere: we fill them out in doctor’s offices and at job interviews, to express ourselves and to advance knowledge, to find love and to kill time. But where did they come from, and why have they proliferated? In Questionnaire, Evan Kindley investigates the history of “the form as form,” from the Victorian confession album to the BuzzFeed quiz. In the process, he uncovers surprising connections between disparate fields (literature and science, psychology and business, and journalism and surveillance), and asks questions about the questions we ask ourselves.

Hair

Scott Cutler Shershow, University of California, Davis, USA

Scott Lowe, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, USA

Bread is an object that, throughout the myriad details of its manufacture and social existence, is always in process of becoming something else: flower to grain, grain to dough, dough to loaf, loaf to crumb. Bread is also often a figure or vehicle of social cohesion: from the homely image of “breaking bread together” to the mysteries of the Eucharist. But bread also commonly figures in social conflict — sometimes literally, in the “bread riots” that punctuate European history, and sometimes figuratively, in the ways bread operates as ethnic, religious or class signifier. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the scriptures to modern pop culture, Bread tells the story this ancient and everyday object.

Password Martin Paul Eve, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK Passwords are crucial to our lives. They regulate our finances, protect our communications and prove who we are to others. They are powerful words. But from where did this equation of verbal knowledge with a person's identity emerge? What does it really mean, in the world of passwords, to say that one's “identity has been stolen”? What does the future of the password hold in store? In Password Martin Paul Eve traces the cultural histories of the password from ancient Rome and the “watchwords” of military encampments, through cultural representations (from Ali Baba to Harry Potter) and up to contemporary implementations in the digital world.

Hair, a primary marker of our mammalian nature, is a remarkably powerful indicator of economic status, social standing, political orientation, religious affiliation, marital state, and cultural leanings, among other things. Scott Lowe offers a pithy yet wide-ranging overview of global hair customs. The rules of hair—head and body, visible and covered—are deep, powerful, and so profoundly embedded in cultural conditioning that they are usually held unconsciously (and more strongly for that). From Hittites to hippies, from Pentecostals to porn stars, hair is a ubiquitous personal and vibrant object, a charged and carefully managed dead thing.

Tree Matthew Battles, Harvard University, USA Tree explores the forms, uses, and alliances of this living object's entanglement with humanity, from antiquity to the Anthropocene. Trees tower over us and yet fade into background. Their lifespan outstrips ours, and yet their wisdom remains inscrutable, treasured up in the heartwood. They serve us in many ways—as keel, lodgepole, and execution site—and yet to become human, we had to come down from their limbs. In this book Matthew Battles follows the tree's branches across art, poetry, and landscape, marking the edges of imagination with wildness and shadow.

Dead Theory

Literature and Moral Theory

Derrida, Death and the Afterlife of Theory

Nora Hämäläinen, University of Helsinki, Finland

What is the legacy of Theory after the deaths of so many of its leading lights, from Jacques Derrida to Roland Barthes? Bringing together reflections by leading contemporary scholars, Dead Theory explores the afterlives of the work of the great theorists and the current state of Theory today. Considering the work of thinkers such as Derrida, Deleuze, and Levinas, the book explores the ways in which Theory has long been haunted by death and how it might endure for the future.

"Some of the most fundamental challenges to analytic ethics have come from moral philosophers who believe literature holds forth the promise of transforming received views of what moral thought is like, and of the kinds of difficulties it presents. Hämäläinen’s Literature and Moral Theory offers an insightful and encompassing tour of this ‘turn to literature,’ describing with particular grace and thoughtfulness the writings of Iris Murdoch and Martha Nussbaum, two of this movement’s most significant figures."

Narratives of Nothing in 20thCentury Literature

Women's Experimental Writing

Meghan Vicks, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

Ellen E. Berry, Bowling Green State University, USA

The concept of nothing has been an enduring concern of 20th-century literature, philosophy, art, music, physics, and mathematics. As Martin Heidegger proposed that nothing is essential to the creation of a knowable being, as Jacques Derrida demonstrated how all structures are built upon a nothing within the structure, and as mathematicians argued that zero – the number that is also not a number – allows for the creation of our modern mathematical system, Narratives of Nothing in 20th-Century Literature suggests that nothing itself enables the narrative act, thereby allowing meaning to come into existence.

Art as the Absolute Art's Relation to Metaphysics in Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, and Schopenhauer Paul Gordon, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA Art as the Absolute is a literary and philosophical investigation into the meaning of art and its claims to truth. Exploring in particular the writings of Kant and those who followed after, including Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche, Paul Gordon contends that art solves the problem of how one can “know” the absolute in non-conceptual, non-discursive terms. Art as the Absolute will be of interest to students and scholars interested in exploring aesthetics from both a literary and a philosophical perspective.

Negative Aesthetics and Feminist Critique

Women's Experimental Writing considers six contemporary authors who use experimental methods and negative modes of critique in their fiction and feminism. The authors covered are Valerie Solanas, Kathy Acker, Theresa Cha, Chantel Chawaf, Jeanette Winterson, and Lynda Barry. Berry argues that the radical aesthetic practices they employ are central to the emergence of contemporary Western feminisms. The volume rectifies a critical neglect of contemporary experimental writing by women, especially in politicized forms, within the still-emerging postmodern canon.

What is Art? Leo Tolstoy Leo Tolstoy is one of the most celebrated novelists of all time. As well as writing literary classics such as Anna Karenina and War and Peace he was also the author of some hugely influential critical and philosophical works. First published in 1898 his book length essay What is Art? has lost none of its power to challenge our perception of art and its function in society today. In this provocative work Tolstoy famously dismisses works by Shakespeare, Dante, Wagner and even many of his own works as 'bad art' based on various criteria including sincerity, ethics, morality and accessibility.

Aesthetic Sexuality A Literary History of Sadomasochism Romana Byrne, Independent Scholar, France

The Aesthetics of Care On the Literary Treatment of Animals Josephine Donovan, University of Maine, USA In this important new book from a pioneering scholar, Josephine Donovan develops a new aesthetics of care, which she establishes as the basis for a critical approach to the representation of animals in literature. The Aesthetics of Care begins with a guide to the relationship between ethics and aesthetics, leading to a reconceptualization of key literary critical terms such as mimesis and catharsis, before moving on to a practical section, with interpretations of the specific treatment of animals handled by a wide range of authors, including Willa Cather, Leo Tolstoy, George Sand, and J.M. Coetzee. The book closes with three concluding theoretical chapters.

"Aesthetic Sexuality reads against the grain of standard readings of the scientia sexualis versus ars erotica distinction Foucault made famous in his History of Sexuality. From Sade to Nietzsche to contemporary fetish fashion, Byrne brilliantly uses the aesthetics of sadomasochism to reconceptualize sexuality itself. A tour de force!"

Paul Mason, Economics Editor, Channel 4 News The financial crisis of 2008 quickly gave rise to a growing body of fiction: "Crunch Lit".

Torture, Trauma and Affect in the War on Terror

The Unspeakable Failures of David Foster Wallace

Michael Richardson, University of Western Sydney, Australia

Language, Identity, and Resistance

Bringing the vibrant field of affect theory to bear on theories of torture and power, Gestures of Testimony adopts an interdisciplinary approach to show how testimony founded in affect can bear witness to torture. Grounded in provocative readings of fiction by George Orwell, Franz Kafka, Arthur Koestler, Anne Michaels and Janette Turner Hospital, poems by Guantanamo detainees, memoirs of interrogators and detainees, contemporary films, and the infamous Torture Memos of the Bush Administration, Richardson’s analysis traverses politics, law and cinema to re-think literary testimony.

The Literature of Reconstruction

Clare Hayes-Brady draws on the evolving discourses of Wallace Studies to focus on the unifying antiteleology of his writing, arguing that that position is a fundamentally political response to the condition of neo-liberal America. She reveals that Wallace’s work is most unified by its resistance to closure, which pervades the structural, narrative and stylistic elements of his writing. Taking a broadly thematic approach to the numerous types of “failure,” or lack of completion, visible throughout his work, Hayes-Brady offers a framework within which to read Wallace’s work as a coherent whole.

It is a must for scholars of contemporary literature, but not only for them: the book should also be read by anyone interested in the idea of authenticity, as Funk's anatomy of this concept is nothing short of a revelation."

Michel Houellebecq and the Literature of Despair Carole Sweeney, Goldsmiths University of London, UK In this book Carole Sweeney examines the novels of Michel Houellebecq as a response to the advance of neoliberalism into all areas of affective human life. This historicizing study argues that le monde houellebecquien is an ‘atomised society’ of banal quotidian alienation populated by quietly resentful men who are the botched subjects of late-capitalism. Addressing Houellebecq’s handling of the ‘failure’ of the radical thought of ‘68, Sweeney looks at the ways in which his fiction treats feminism, the decline of religion and the family, as well as the obsolescence of French ‘theory’ and the Sartrean notion of ‘engaged’ literature.

Life Lines: Writing Transcultural Adoption John McLeod, University of Leeds, UK "Life Lines is a compelling and scholarly analysis of the literature of adoption, which also takes us on an evocative, and ultimately moving, journey of personal discovery."

Understanding Foucault, Understanding Modernism Edited by David Scott, Coppin State University, USA

The outstanding feature of this volume lies in its intent to investigate William James’s influence on both American and International Modernism. It provides, on the one hand, a multifaceted introduction to students of history, philosophy, and culture, and on the other, a compendium of some of the most up-to-date thinking on this central figure. The contributors explore James’s most essential texts as well as his influence on contemporary writers, artists, and thinkers.

This volume shows, on the one hand, that literature and the arts play a fundamental structural role in Foucault’s works, while, on the other hand, it shifts to the foreground what it presumes to be motivating Foucault: the interrogation of the problem of modernism. It presents as many paths as possible for establishing links between Foucault’s thought to aesthetic problems related to those specific works, methods, and styles designated 'modernist.'

Gertrude Stein in Europe

Conceived in Modernism

Reconfigurations Across Media, Disciplines, and Traditions

The Aesthetics and Politics of Birth Control

Sarah Posman, University of Ghent, Belgium & Laura Luise Schultz, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Aimee Armande Wilson, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, USA

Although often hailed as a ‘quintessentially American’ writer, the modernist poet, novelist and playwright Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) spent most of her life in France. With chapters written by leading international scholars, Gertrude Stein in Europe is the first sustained exploration of the European artistic and intellectual networks in which Stein’s work was first developed and circulated. Exploring the European contexts of and influences on Stein's writing, this book opens up new perspectives on Stein as a writer and on the centrality of artistic and intellectual networks to European modernism.

“Conceived in Modernism intervenes forcefully in debates about modernist sexualities and the history of birth control and reproduction. Aimee Armande Wilson’s politically informed and theoretically sophisticated readings of a range of canonical and lesser-known literary authors and birth control activists are illuminating and inspiring. Interdisciplinary in scope, the book makes an important and timely contribution to the intersecting inquiries of modernist studies, the history of sexuality, feminist criticism and sexuality studies.” Jana Funke, Advanced Research Fellow in Medical Humanities, University of Exeter, UK

The Works of Graham Greene, Volume 2

Guarding the Guardians from 1900 to the Present

A Guide to the Graham Greene Archives

Sarah Lonsdale, City University, London, UK. Sarah Lonsdale traces the ways in which journalists and newspapers have been depicted in fiction, theatre and film. The book asks how journalists were represented in various distinct periods of the 20th century and attempts to explain why these representations vary so widely. This is a history of the British press, told not by historians and sociologists, but by writers and directors as well as journalists themselves. Within these texts and films there is perhaps a clue as to how the best aspects of ‘Fourth estate’ journalism can survive in the digital age.

Mary Butts and British NeoRomanticism The Enchantment of Place Andrew Radford, University of Glasgow, UK Mary Butts was an important figure in inter-war modernist circles and one who reviewed and associated with some of the major literary figures of the era, from T.S. Eliot to Gertrude Stein. Despite her importance and the varied nature of her writing, she has been a neglected figure in modernist scholarship. Providing a new analysis of the interwar literary period, Mary Butts and British Neo-Romanticism revisits her vividly experimental writings spanning memoir, poetry, polemic and fiction through the lens of mid-20th-century British neo-Romanticism. The book argues that behind Butts's eco-feminist writings lies an intricate political and philosophical commentary.

Ted Hughes, Class and Violence

John McGahern and Modernism

Paul Bentley, University of St. Mark and St. John, UK

Richard Robinson, University of Swansea, UK

"A groundbreaking study of a poet whose verse runs 'deep as England.'" Heather Clark, Marlboro College, USA The first full length study of the importance of class in the work of Ted Hughes, this book presents a radically new version of the poet that challenges the image of Hughes as primarily a nature poet. The controversy over ‘natural’ violence in Hughes’s early poems, Hughes’s relationship with Seamus Heaney, the Laureateship, and Hughes’s revisiting of his relationship with Sylvia Plath in Birthday Letters (1998), are reconsidered in terms of Hughes’s class background.

An original contribution to Irish studies, Tradition and Modernity in the Work of John McGahern includes close readings of Amongst Women and Memoir alongside comparative readings of Toibín, Joyce and Trevor. It surveys existing scholarly evaluations and sifts through critical assessments of McGahern's writing, centring him in a theoretical framework of 'European' thought. Robinson's study tackles the argument between tradition and modernity in McGahern's work, freeing the writer from out-dated descriptions of an elegist for a vanishing way of life and portraying him as dramatic dramatist of the tension between ritual and change.

Modernizing George Eliot Raising Milton's Ghost John Milton and the Sublime of Terror in the Early Romantic Period Joseph Crawford, University of Cambridge, UK Why was Milton so important to the Romantics? How did 'Milton the Regicide', a man often regarded in his lifetime as a dangerous traitor and heretic, become 'the Sublime Milton'? Drawing on the traditions of cultural, intellectual and bibliographic history as well as recent trends in literary scholarship on the romantic period, Joseph Crawford explores the dramatic shift in Milton's cultural status after 1790. He builds on a now significant literature on Milton's legacy to the Romantic poets, uncovering the cultural historical background against which the Romantics and their contemporaries encountered and interacted with Milton's reputation and works.

Ethics in British Children's Literature Unexamined Life

Christina Rossetti's Gothic Serena Trowbridge, Birmingham City University, UK The poetry of Christina Rossetti is often described as ‘gothic' and yet this term has rarely been examined in the specific case of Rossetti's work. Based on new readings of the full range of her writings, from ‘Goblin Market' to the devotional poems and prose works, this book explores Rossetti's use of Gothic forms and images to consider her as a Gothic writer.

Subject of the Event Reagency in the American Novel after 2000 Sebastian Huber, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich, Germany As the first book to comprehensively engage with Alain Badiou’s writings outside of a philosophical context, Subject of the Event analyzes five critically acclaimed novels of the new millennium—Cormac McCarthy’s The Road (2006), Jess Walter’s The Zero (2006), Mark Z. Danielewski’s Only Revolutions (2006), Paul Beatty’s Slumberland (2008) and Thomas Pynchon’s Against the Day (2006)—and argues that they create different ‘subjects of the event’ that are empowered with ‘reagency’. The ‘subject of the event’ and its empowerment, what this book calls ‘reagency,’ implies that subjects only evolve out of their confrontation with the revolutionary impetus that events propel.

Of the more than twenty-five biographies of Kerouac, few have seriously examined his relationship to the French language and the reason for his bilingualism, the Québec Diaspora. Although this background has long been recognized in Frenchlanguage treatments, it is a new dimension in Anglophone studies of his writing. Hassan Melehy explores how Kerouac’s poetics of exile involves meditations on moving between territories and languages. He shows that, far from being a naïve pursuit, Kerouac’s writing practice not only responded but contributed to some of the major aesthetic and philosophical currents of the twentieth century in which notions such as otherness and nomadism took shape.

Goethe's Families of the Heart

"When Mann speaks of ‘the most tremendous case of poetic genius the world has ever seen’, he is referring not to Homer, nor to Goethe – but to Shakespeare. It is strange that this important identification has been so little heeded or seriously examined for so long. At last the present book makes up for such neglect."

Susan Gustafson, University of Rochester, USA The questions Goethe’s plays and novels pose are often modern and challenging: Do social conventions, family expectations, and legal mandates matter? Gustafson’s close analysis of Goethe’s literary work shows that he rejected loveless relationships (for example, arranged marriages) and accepted and promoted all relationships formed through spontaneous affinities and love (including heterosexual, same-sex, bisexual, group, parental, and adoptive).

Interpreting in Nazi Concentration Camps

Translation and the Making of Modern Russian Literature

Edited by Michaela Wolf, University of Graz, Austria

Brian James Baer, Kent State University, USA

While in the last few decades there has been extensive research on the language used by concentration camp inmates, investigation into the mediating role of interpreters between SS guards and prisoners on the one hand, and among inmates on the other, has been almost nonexistent. This book examines the role of interpreting in the wider context of shaping life in concentration camps while also looking at how knowledge of languages, and accordingly, certain communication skills, contributed to the survival of concentration camp inmates and of the interpreting person.

"In an elegant series of micro-narratives, Brian Baer exposes the flash points of modern Russian literary history. ... He is an erudite and stylish guide, with a keen eye for paradox." Sherry Simon, Concordia University, Canada This book reveals that the awareness on the part of Russian writers that their literature, and by extension, their cultural identity, was “born in translation” produced a sustained critique of Romantic authorship and national identity that would become a defining theme of modern Russian literature.

South African Literature's Russian Soul

Danish Literature as World Literature

Narrative Forms of Global Isolation

Edited by Mads Rosendahl Thomsen & Dan Ringgaard, both at Aarhus University, Denmark

Jeanne-Marie Jackson, Connecticut College, USA. "Breaks genuinely new ground in the study of the postcolonial novel." Katie Trumpener, Yale University, UK In this book, Jeanne-Marie Jackson demonstrates how Russian writing’s “Golden Age” in the troubled nineteenth-century has served as a model for South African writers both during and after apartheid. Exploring these two isolated literary cultures alongside each other, the book challenges the limits of ‘global’ methodologies in contemporary literary studies and outdated models of centerperiphery relations to argue for a more locally involved scale of literary enquiry with more truly global horizons.

Salman Rushdie and Translation Jenni Ramone, Nottingham Trent University, UK "An original and important perspective on one of the most important writers of our age." Dave Gunning, University of Birmingham, UK Salman Rushdie's writing is engaged with translation in many ways: translator-figures tell and retell stories in his novels, while acts of translation are catalysts for climactic events. Covering his major novels as well as his short stories and writing for children, Salman Rushdie and Translation explores the role of translation in Rushdie's work. Jenni Ramone draws on contemporary translation theory to analyse the part translation plays in Rushdie's appropriation of historical and contemporary Indian narratives of independence and migration.

German Literature as World Literature Edited by Thomas Oliver Beebee, Penn State University, USA

"A subtle exploration of the limits of the literary practice. Epplin reflects on the intersections of literature, aesthetics, material production, and distribution of books, where he finds the possibilities for contemporary experimentation. In a brilliant counterpoint, his arguments highlight local works in a global media context." Graciela Montaldo, Columbia University, USA

“For far too long, the only role that the German tradition has played in the flourishing discussions surrounding ‘world literature’ is to have given the field its name. The present volume corrects this deficit and shows how German literature interacts with the world at large. It should be required reading for anyone interested in the future of German studies in the twenty-first century!” Tobias Boes, University of Notre Dame, USA

Despite being a minor language, Danish literature is one of the world’s most active in translating foreign literature, and the Scandinavian state is the home of a number of significant writers. Danish Literature as World Literature introduces key figures from 800 years of Danish literature and their impact on world literature. Included are chapters devoted to post-1945 literature on beat and systemic poetry, literature from and about Greenland, and the Scandinavia noir vogue that includes both crime fiction and cinema and is enjoying worldwide popularity.

Ecocriticism and Italy

Ecology, Resistance, and Liberation

The Return of the Repressed in Nature and Culture

Serenella Iovino, University of Turin, Italy “Ecocriticism and Italy is a bracing intervention—a beautiful and sometimes surreal work of material ecocriticism.” Stacy Alaimo, University of Texas, USA Italy's landscapes have inspired many different works of literature and art. Ecocriticism and Italy is the first comprehensive eco-critical study of the modern cultural engagement with that landscape. From Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities and Tomasi di Lampedusa’s tales of mermaids in the Mediterranean sea to the industrial landscapes of film-makers like Pier Paolo Pasolini, Serenella Iovino explores the ways in which Italian artists have engaged politically, culturally and socially with the natural world around them.

Literature as Cultural Ecology Sustainable Texts Hubert Zapf, University of Augsburg, Germany Drawing on the latest debates in ecocritical theory and sustainability studies, Literature as Cultural Ecology: Sustainable Texts outlines a new approach to the reading of literary texts. Hubert Zapf considers the ways in which literature operates as a form of cultural ecology, using language, imagination and critique to challenge and transform cultural narratives of humanity’s relationship to nature. Applying this approach to works by such writers as Emily Dickinson, Herman Melville, Toni Morrison, William Faulkner and Edgar Allen Poe, Literature as Cultural Ecology is an essential contribution to the contemporary environmental humanities.

Rod Giblett, Edith Cowan University, Australia From New Orleans to New York, from London to Paris to Venice, many of the world’s great cities were built on wetlands and swamps. Cities and Wetlands is the first book to explore the literary and cultural histories of these cities and their relationships to their environments. Developing a ground-breaking mode of psychoanalytic ecology and surveying a wide range of cities in North America, Europe and Australia, ecocritic and activist Rod Giblett shows how the wetland origins of these cities haunt their later literature and culture and might prompt us to reconsider the relationship between human culture and the environment.

Exploring such works as Star Trek, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, the novels of Haruki Murakami and superhero comics such as Green Lantern and X-Men, Anthony Lioi maps out the development of nerd culture and its intersections with the most fundamental ecocritical themes.

Ecocriticism on the Edge The Anthropocene as a Threshold Concept Timothy Clark, University of Durham, UK "After this book, ecocriticism should never be the same again." Richard Kerridge, Bath Spa University, UK Bringing together two schools of criticism that have previously been remote from each other, Ecocriticism on the Edge argues for a revised eco-criticism informed by the insights of deconstruction, whilst at the same time challenging Derridean deconstruction's silence on the subject of ecological catastrophe. Offering radical new readings of texts by such writers as Raymond Carver, Kim Stanley Robinson and Henry James in light of these concerns, Ecocriticism on the Edge is a major intervention in contemporary critical theory and eco-criticism.

London in Contemporary British Fiction

Iain Sinclair: Noise, Neoliberalism and the Matter of London

The City Beyond the City Edited by Philip Tew, Brunel University, UK, Nick Hubble, Brunel University, London, UK & Lynn Wells Contemporary writers such as Peter Ackroyd, J.G. Ballard, John King, Ian McEwan, Will Self, Iain Sinclair and Zadie Smith have been registering the changes to the social and cultural London landscape for years. This volume brings together their vivid representations of the capital. Uniting the readings are themes such as relationship between the country and the city; the capacity of satirical forms to encompass the 'real London'; spatio-temporal transformations and emergences; the relationship between multiculturalism and universalism; the underground as the spatial equivalent of London's unconsciousness and the suburbs as the frontier of the future.

For more than 40 years London-based writer, film-maker and ‘psychogeographer’ Iain Sinclair has proved to be one of the most incisive commentators on the contemporary city: tracing the emerging contours of a metropolis where the meeting of global and local is never without incident. Iain Sinclair: Noise, Neoliberalism and the Matter of London explores Sinclair’s investigations into the nature of conflicting urban realities through an examination of the ways in which the noise of neoliberal excess intersects with the noise of literary experiment. In this way, the book casts new light on theorisations of the city in the contemporary era.

G.K. Chesterton, London and Modernity Edited by Matthew Beaumont & Matthew Ingleby G. K. Chesterton, London and Modernity is the first book to explore the persistent theme of the city in Chesterton's writing. Situating him in relation to both Victorian and Modernist literary paradigms, the book explores a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to address the way his imaginative investments and political interventions conceive urban modernity and the central figure of London. While Chesterton's work has often been valued for its wit and whimsy, this book argues that he is also a distinctive urban commentator, whose sophistication has been under appreciated in comparison to more canonical contemporaries.

Literary Trials Exceptio Artis and Theories of Literature in Court Edited by Ralf Grüttemeier, Oldenburg University, Germany From the 19th century onwards, famous literary trials have caught the attention of readers, academics and the public at large. Literary Trials represents the first step towards a systematic discussion of literary trials on a global scale. Beginning by first reassessing some of the most famous of these trials, such as those about Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, Joyce’s Ulysses and Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, among others, it also analyses less well-known but significant literary trials. Special attention is paid to recent developments in the relationship between literature and judicature, pointing towards an increasing role for libel and defamation in the societal demarcation of what literature is, and is not, allowed to do.

Gothic Fiction and the Invention of Terrorism The Politics and Aesthetics of Fear in the Age of the Reign of Terror Joseph Crawford, University of Exeter, UK Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014 This book examines the connections between the growth of 'terror fiction' - now known as 'Gothic' - in the late eighteenth century, alongside the emerging concept of 'terrorism' as a category of political action. In the 1790s, four interconnected bodies of writing arose in Britain: the historical mythology of the French Revolution, the political rhetoric of 'terrorism', the genre of political conspiracy theory, and the literary genre of Gothic fiction. All four bodies of writing drew heavily upon one another to articulate a sense of the radical and monstrous otherness of human evil.

Each volume examines the ways authors have been translated, published, distributed, read, reviewed and discussed in Europe.

The Reception of Edmund Burke in Europe Edited by Peter Jones, University of Edinburgh, UK & Martin Fitzpatrick, Independent Scholar, UK Over the last fifty years the life and work of Edmund Burke (17291797) has received sustained scholarly attention and debate. Attention has focused in particular on locating his ideas in the history of eighteenth-century theory and practice and the contexts of late eighteenth-century conservative thought. This book broadens the focus to examine the many sided interest in Burke's ideas in Europe, most notably in politics and aesthetics. It draws on the work of leading international scholars to present new perspectives on the significance of Burke's ideas in European politics and culture.

The Reception of Oscar Wilde in Europe Edited by Stefano Evangelista, Trinity College, University of Oxford, UK Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) is now widely recognised not only as one of the most representative figures of the British fin de siècle, but as one of the most influential Anglophone authors of the nineteenth century. In this survey, leading international scholars and translators trace the cultural impact of Oscar Wilde's work across Europe, from the earliest translations and performances of his works in the 1890s to the present day.

The Reception of Alfred Tennyson in Europe Edited by Leonee Ormond, King's College, London, UK Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) has often been considered a particularly British writer in part as his official post as Poet Laureate inevitably committed him to a certain amount of patriotic writing. This volume focuses on his impact on the continent, presenting a major scholarly analysis of Tennyson's wider reception in different areas of Europe. It considers reader and critical responses and explores the effect of his poetry upon contemporary and later writers, as well as his influence upon illustrators, painters and musicians.

Potts, Divinity School, Harvard University “Will for a long time remain the best treatment we have of McCarthy as proto-postmodern theologian.” Richard A. Rosengarten, University of Chicago Divinity School, USA Although scholars have widely acknowledged the prevalence of religious reference in the work of Cormac McCarthy, this is the first book on the most pervasive religious trope in all his works: the image of sacrament, and in particular, of eucharist. Informed by postmodern theories of narrative and Christian theologies of sacrament, Matthew Potts provides new readings of the major novels of Cormac McCarthy, arguing that their dark moral significance coheres with the Christian theological tradition in difficult, demanding ways.

Why have so many prominent literary authors— from Philip Pullman and José Saramago to Michèle Roberts and Colm Tóibím—recently rewritten the canonical story of Jesus Christ? What does that say about our supposedly secular age? In this insightful study, Magdalena Maczynska defines and examines the genre of scriptural metafiction: novels that not only transform religious texts but also draw attention to these transformations. In addition to providing rich examples and close readings, Maczynska positions literary studies within interdisciplinary debates about religion and secularity.

H.D. and Modernist Religious Imagination Mysticism and Writing Elizabeth Anderson, University of Glasgow, UK Examining the intersection of religious sensibility and creativity in the poetry and prose of the American modernist writer, H.D., this book explores the nexus of the religious, the visionary, the creative and the material in her writing. Drawing on original archival research and analyses of newly published and unpublished writings by H.D., as well as the theoretical writings of Helene Cixous, Elizabeth Anderson shows how the poet's work is informed by a range of religious traditions, from the complexities and contradictions of Moravian Christianity to a wide range of esoteric beliefs and practices.

Emily Bronte and the Religious Imagination Simon Marsden, University of Liverpool, UK "Marsden provides new readings of elements in Emily Brontë’s work that have baffled scholars and readers: his readings of “No coward Soul” and Wuthering Heights... provide a coherent analysis of seemingly irreconcilable elements of her work and thought." Michael M. Clarke, Loyola University, Chicago, USA. Readers of Emily Brontë's poetry and of Wuthering Heights have seen in their author, variously, a devout if unorthodox Christian, a heretic, or a visionary "mystic of the moors". Emily Brontë and the Religious Imagination suggests that such conflicting readings are the product of tensions, conflicts and ambiguities within the texts themselves.

Irigaray, Incarnation and Contemporary Women's Fiction Abigail Rine, George Fox University, USA Drawing on the provocative recent work of feminist theorist Luce Irigaray, Irigaray, Incarnation and Contemporary Women’s Fiction illuminates the vital and subversive role of literature in rewriting notions of the sacred. Abigail Rine demonstrates through careful readings how a range of contemporary women writers - from Margaret Atwood to Michèle Roberts and Alice Walker – think beyond traditional religious discourse and masculine models of subjectivity towards a new model of the sacred: one that seeks to reconcile the schism between the human and the divine, between the body and the word.

Emer O'Sullivan Oscar Wilde’s father – scientist, surgeon, archeologist, writer – was one of the most eminent men of his generation. His mother – poet, journalist, translator – hosted an influential salon at 1 Merrion Square. Together they were one of Victorian Ireland’s most dazzling and enlightened couples. When in 1864 Sir William Wilde was accused of sexually assaulting a female patient, it sent shock waves through Dublin society. After his death, some ten years later, Jane attempted to re-establish the family in London, where Oscar burst upon the scene and became the first modern celebrity. His own fall in a trial as public as his father’s marked the end of fin de siècle decadence.

Othello: Revised Edition William Shakespeare Edited by Ayanna Thompson, The George Washington University, Washington DC, USA & E.A.J. Honigmann This revised edition of Othello has a new introduction by Ayanna Thompson, addressing such key issues as race, religion and gender, as well as ways in which the play has been adapted in more recent times. The new introduction attends to the play’s different meanings throughout history, while articulating the historical context in which Othello was created, paying particular attention to Shakespeare’s source materials and the evidence about early modern constructions of racial and religious difference.

Much Ado About Nothing: Revised Edition William Shakespeare Edited by Claire McEachern, UCLA, USA Much Ado About Nothing presents a battle of the sexes in more ways than one: as both a lightningfast skirmish of wits between two famously disputatious lovers, and a near-deadly conflict built on conventions of gender and male rivalry. Claire McEachern's new introduction brings this best-seller right up-to-date, analysing recent developments in criticism and the latest productions of this comedy, including film versions by Kenneth Branagh and Joss Whedon.

Troilus and Cressida: Revised Edition William Shakespeare Edited by David Bevington, University of Chicago, USA A revised edition of this intriguing and complex play, updated to cover recent critical thinking and stage history. Troilus and Cressida is a tragedy often labelled a "problem" play because of its apparent blend of genres and its difficult themes. Set in the Trojan Wars it tells a story of doomed love and honour, offering a debased view of human nature in wartime and a stage peopled by generally unsympathetic characters. The revised edition makes an ideal text for study at undergraduate level and above.

King Henry IV Part 2 William Shakespeare Edited by James C. Bulman, Allegheny College, USA This complex history play is more troubled and troubling than King Henry IV Part 1, as it continues the story of King Henry’s decline and Hal’s reform. Though Part 2 echoes the structure of the earlier play, it is a darker and more unsettling world, in which even Falstaff’s revelry is more tired and cynical, and the once-merry Hal sloughs off his tavern companions to become King Henry V. Expertly edited with on-page notes and a lengthy critical introduction, this is an invaluable and authoritative edition.

The Importance of Being Earnest Revised Edition Oscar Wilde Edited by Francesca Coppa, University of Muhlenberg, USA This student edition features a new introduction, in which Francesca Coppa explores recent critical approaches to the play, including queer and postcolonial readings, as well as giving the context in which the play was written and how it relates to Wilde's personal life and public persona. The introduction also discusses the play's stage history, providing students with an ideal overview of the play and its resonances for contemporary audiences.

Shakespeare in Our Time

Shakespeare's World of Words

A Poets' Celebration

A Shakespeare Association of America Collection

Edited by Paul Yachnin, McGill University, Canada

Edited by Hannah Crawforth & Elizabeth Scott-Baumann, both at King's College London, UK In the four hundred years since Shakespeare's death, the Sonnets have invited imitation, homage, critique, parody and pastiche. These new poems probe our relationship to the Sonnets' intricate form and ambitious scope, their investigation of sexuality, wit, memory and poetic survival. These sonnets and longer lyrics explore what it means to write 'on Shakespeare's Sonnets' in the 21st century. Published in association with the Royal Society of Literature contributing poets include: Andrew Motion, Carol Ann Duffy, Gillian Clarke, Paul Muldoon, Ruth Padel, Simon Armitage, Roger McGough and Jo Shapcott. UK February 2016 • US April 2016 • 112 pages HB 9781474221580 • £12.99 / $19.95 Bloomsbury Arden Shakespeare

Edited by Dympna Callaghan, Syracuse University, USA & Suzanne Gossett, Loyola University, Chicago, USA Marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death this volume offers a unique collection of leading Shakespeare scholars outlining key developments in Shakespeare studies over the last two decades. Their essays are complemented by responses from younger scholars looking forward to new fields of study and debate. A "state of the nation" look at Shakespeare criticism, covering all the key areas of research and study including gender, text, performance, the body, history, religion and biography, this is a must-read, comprehensive introduction to the critical ideas surrounding Shakespeare's work and a stimulating exploration of where we might go next.

The contributors to this volume propose that Shakespeare was not the poet of nature, but rather that he was a master of rewriting and recreation. Each chapter in this volume begins with a key word or phrase from Shakespeare and builds toward a broader consideration of the social, poetic, and theatrical dimensions of his language. The chapters capture the richness of Shakespeare’s world of words by including discussions of biblical language, Latinity, philosophy of language and subjectivity, languages of commerce, criminality, history, and education, the gestural vocabulary of performance, as well as accounts of verbal modality and metrics.

Shakespeare and Economic Theory David Hawkes, Arizona State University, USA This book shows how concepts and concerns that were until recently considered purely economic affected the entire range of sixteenth and seventeenth century life. Shakespeare and Economic Theory traces economic literary criticism to its cultural and historical roots, and discusses its main practitioners. Providing new readings of plays including Timon of Athens, King Lear, The Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest, David Hawkes shows how it can reveal previously unappreciated qualities of Shakespeare’s work.

Shakespeare's Insults

Shakespeare and Visual Culture

A Pragmatic Dictionary

Armelle Sabatier, Paris II University, France

Nathalie Vienne-Guerrin, University of Montpellier III Paul Valery, France Why are certain words used as insults in Shakespeare’s world and what do these words do and say? Shakespeare’s plays abound with insults which are more often merely cited than thoroughly studied, quotation prevailing over exploration. The purpose of this richly detailed dictionary is to go beyond the surface of these words and to analyse why and how words become insults in Shakespeare’s world. It's an invaluable resource and reference guide for anyone grappling with the complexities and rewards of Shakespeare's inventive use of language in the realm of insult and verbal sparring.

While scrutinising the complex issue of image on an Elizabethan stage and exploring the codification of colours in Shakespeare’s poetry, this dictionary highlights the fierce rivalry between the poet, the dramatist and the visual artist.

Tragic Cognition in Shakespeare's Othello

Othello's Secret

Beyond the Neural Sublime

R M Christofides

Paul Cefalu, Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania, USA How can recent theories of cognition inform our understanding of Shakespeare’s characters? Tragic Cognition in Shakespeare’s Othello looks at how such theories can enhance our perception of Iago and Othello, as well as enriching the play’s complex accounts of empathy, intentionality, and tragedy. Paul Cefalu argues that Shakespearean characters raise timely questions about the relationship between cognition and consciousness and often defy our assumptions about “normal” cognition. The book will appeal to scholars and students interested in both the virtues and limitations of cognitive literary criticism.

The Cyprus Problem Othello's Secret uncovers the relationship between the play and the conflicts that have torn apart its Cypriot setting, providing a new and powerfully political reading. Exploring the domestic and military anxieties connected by Shakespeare, Christofides highlights the ways in which these issues resonate with current ideological and geographical divisions in Cyprus, divisions rooted in the 16th century struggles to control the island. Challenging the conventional view of Othello as a Venetian play, this book offers a fierce and personal example of how early modern literature can purposefully contribute to even the most complex geopolitical debates.

Shakespeare and the Stuff of Life

Remembering and Forgetting in Britain, Australia and New Zealand, 1916 - 2016

Treasures from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

Edited by Gordon McMullan, King's College London, UK & Philip Mead, University of Western Australia, Australia

Edited by Delia Garratt, Director of Cultural Engagement, Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust & Tara Hamling, University of Birmingham, UK

Scholars from Britain, Australia and New Zealand reflect on the modes of commemoration of Shakespeare in and after the Tercentenary year, 1916, in two hemispheres, arguing that it was at this moment of remembering that ‘global Shakespeare’ first emerged in recognisable, if embryonic, form. A great deal has been forgotten about this key moment in the history of the place of Shakespeare in national and global culture. In addressing this, the book offers new materials and discoveries about, and new interpretations of, those Tercentenary celebrations, reflecting also on the long legacy of those celebrations.

This unique book brings together, for the first time, a selection of 50 objects from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon. Accessible and lavishly illustrated, the volume provides an object-based exploration of the role and significance of notable paintings, furniture, ceramics, textiles and metal wares in the everyday experience of people living in Shakespearean England. Published to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 2016, it brings Shakespeare's times to life for readers of all ages.

Antipodal Shakespeare

English Renaissance Tragedy Ideas of Freedom Peter Holbrook, University of Queensland, Australia

1616: Shakespeare and Tang Xianzu's China Edited by Tian Yuan Tan, SOAS, University of London, UK, Paul Edmondson, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, UK & Shih-pe Wang, National Taiwan University, Taiwan The year is 1616. William Shakespeare has died, and the world of the London theatres is mourning his loss. But 1616 is also to see the death of the famous Chinese playwright Tang Xianzu. Four hundred years on, and Shakespeare is now an important meeting place for Anglo-Chinese cultural dialogue in the field of drama and literary studies. SOAS, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and National Chung Cheng University of Taiwan have gathered together 11 Shakespearians and 11 Chinese literature experts to reflect on the theatrical climate in England and China in this significant year.

This book's underlying claim is that English Renaissance tragedy addresses live issues in the experience of readers and spectators today: it is not a genre to be studied only for aesthetic or “heritage” reasons. It considers the way in which tragedy in general, and English Renaissance tragedy in particular, addresses ideas of liberty and tyranny, understood both from an individual and a sociopolitical perspective.

Shakespeare and YouTube

Law, Testament and Properties of Performance

New Media Forms of the Bard

Gary Watt, University of Warwick, UK Drawing on years of experience delivering rhetoric workshops for the Royal Shakespeare Company and as a prize-winning teacher of law, Gary Watt demonstrates how Shakespeare transformed lawyers’ manual book rhetoric into powerful drama through a stirring combination of word, metre, movement and physical stage material, producing a mode of performance that was truly testamentary in its power to engage the witnessing public. Published in the 400th anniversary year of Shakespeare’s last will and testament, this is a major contribution to the growing interdisciplinary field of law and humanities.

This book identifies the genres of YouTube Shakespeare, interpreting them through theories of remediation and media convergence and as indices of Shakespeare’s shifting cultural meanings. Exploring the intersection of YouTube’s participatory culture – its invitation to ‘Broadcast Yourself’ – with its corporate logic, the book argues that YouTube Shakespeare is a site of productive tension between new forms of self-expression and the homogenizing effects of mass culture. Shakespeare and YouTube will be of interest to students and scholars of Shakespearean drama, poetry and adaptations, as well as to new media studies.

Shakespeare's Creative Legacies

Visual Culture in Drama

Keir Elam, University of Bologna, Italy

Edited by Peter Holbrook, University of Queensland, Australia

This is the first full-length study of the role of graphic and iconographic images in Shakespeare referencing performance history throughout. Chapters examine plays in which pictures are brought on stage as part of the dramatic action (Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, among others); the embedding of images from the popular imagination in the action and discourse of the plays; the dialectic between optical and auditory illusion in the romance or late plays, or "how" the visual is "heard" in the theatre, and the question of perspective in the comedies, especially in Twelfth Night.

The Politics of Performing Shakespeare for Young People Standing up to Shakespeare Jan Wozniak, University of Leeds, UK This book examines performance projects of Shakespeare’s plays for young people in terms of their value for their young audiences. Using interviews with theatre workers and workshops with young people, the book argues that it is by trusting young people’s experience of performances, rather than promoting a range of predetermined textual understandings of the plays, that they might gain most benefit. It argues that by privileging the meanings young people make of Shakespeare, new and exciting interpretations of his work might be found.

A series of essays combine with personal reflections from prominent contemporary practitioners of the arts. Both celebration and reflection, this unique book explores Shakespeare as a global cultural figure who continues to inspire artists, audiences and readers around the world.

The Hand on the Shakespearean Stage Gesture, Touch and the Spectacle of Dismemberment Farah Karim-Cooper, Shakespeare's Globe, London, UK This ground-breaking book uncovers the way Shakespeare draws upon the available literature and visual representations of the hand in his time to inform his work. An analysis of gesture, touch, skill and dismemberment in a range of Shakespeare's works, shows how the hand was perceived in Shakespeare’s time as an indicator of human agency, emotion, social and personal identity. This book is about how the hand and its activities are described and embedded in Shakespeare's texts and about its role on the Shakespearean stage: as part of the actor’s body, in the language as metaphor and as a morbid stage-prop.

Gielgud, Olivier, Ashcroft, Dench: Great Shakespeareans

Poel, Granville Barker, Guthrie, Wanamaker: Great Shakespeareans

Edited by Russell Jackson, University of Birmingham, UK In their own distinctive manner, each of the four actors discussed in this volume have had a profound and innovative influence on the methods of Shakespearean performance, and thus on the appreciation and interpretation of his plays. Their careers encompass almost a century of theatrical experience, from John Gielgud’s childhood before the First World War to Judi Dench’s performances in the first decades of the new millennium. The volume affords invaluable insights into changing approaches to the actor’s craft, the aims and methods of the theatre, the institutions presenting productions and, above all, to Shakespeare’s plays themselves.

Edited by Cary M. Mazer, University of Pennsylvania, USA All four figures in this volume have been canonized as central to ‘stage-centred’ Shakespearean scholarship and stage practice. From William Poel’s reproductions of early modern stages in the late nineteenth century to Sam Wanamaker’s reconstruction of the Globe on London’s South Bank, they all viewed Shakespeare’s plays as being enmeshed in the social and historical dynamics of theatremaking and theatregoing. The volume considers how their attempts to recapture early modern performance conditions can be considered progressive.
