Praise for Volume I

Praise for Volume II

“The most bracing read [of 2009] was The Letters of Samuel Beckett, 1929–1940, a portrait of the Dubliner as a young European with a hard gemlike gift for language, learning and mockery. Beckett’s genius exercises itself most exuberantly in the correspondence with Thomas MacGreevy, another Irish poet more at home in Paris, his senior but his soulmate. Constantly Beckett is veering between certainty about his need to write and doubt about the results, all expressed in prose that is undoubting, delighted and demanding.” Seamus Heaney in “Books of the year 2009,” The Times Literary Supplement

“Here it is: just two years after the first volume, the second instalment of what promises to be one of the great productions of literary scholarship of our time, The Letters of Samuel Beckett … There is in this volume, Gunn tells us, ‘a new absence of hostility and recrimination, a lack of grievance towards the world and its inhabitants’. That is true, and it is one of the reasons why this book is so much more enjoyable to read than the first volume … This magnificent volume of letters, so painstakingly prepared by the editors, takes us a bit closer to answering those questions.” Nicholas Grene, The Irish Times

“The editorial work behind this project has been immense in scale. Every book that Beckett mentions, every painting, every piece of music is tracked down and accounted for. His movements are traced from week to week. Everyone he alludes to is identified; his principal contacts earn potted biographies. When he writes in a foreign language, we are given both the original and an English translation … The standard of the commentary is of the highest … The Letters of Samuel Beckett is a model edition.” J. M.Coetzee, The New York Review of Books

“Not to beat about the bush, here’s the book of the year.” David Sexton, London Evening Standard

THE LETTERS OF

the letters of

samuel beckett – 1957 1965

edited by George Craig, Martha Dow Fehsenfeld, Dan Gunn and Lois More Overbeck

This third volume of The Letters of Samuel Beckett reveals the author striving to find a balance between the demands put upon him by his growing international fame, and his need for the peace and silence from which new writing might emerge. During this period Beckett has to face the fact that his work – despite his own advocacy of failure – is not only critically acclaimed but also popular with the public. At first hesitantly, then later enthusiastically, he moves further into the world of the theater, discovering how to direct his own plays. He finds himself called upon by a greatly expanded range of correspondents, from more and more countries: academics, authors, stage-directors, set-designers, publishers, and translators; while at the same time loyalty requires him to keep writing to his old and trusted friends. He launches into work for radio with All That Fall and Embers, both written for the BBC, into television with Eh Joe, and into cinema with Film. He also returns to fiction, writing Comment c’est (How It Is), his first novel in a decade; where hitherto he has been reticent about the process of composition, now he devotes letter after letter to describing and explaining his work in progress. And for the first time Beckett has a woman as his chief correspondent: in the intense and abundant letters to Barbara Bray is to be found one of the excitements of this volume. Critical introductions to the letters offer contextual information, including on the Franco-Algerian War that so marks the era; explanatory notes are provided, as are profiles of Beckett’s chief correspondents, and translations of writings not in English.

Featured authors Adam Hammond, Associate Professor, University of Toronto Author of Literature in the Digital Age: A Critical Introduction The Digital Humanities is a broad topic, and accounts of it tend to be extremely polarized. I wanted to write a book that explored the specifically literary side of DH while maintaining a balanced perspective on the opportunities and perils of the digital. I also wanted to make this occasionally forbidding topic accessible to all readers – to write a book that would be as useful to undergraduates and the general public as to senior faculty in literature departments.

Ezra Tawil, Associate Professor, University of Rochester Editor of The Cambridge Companion to Slavery in American Literature The seeds of this book were sown a few years ago, when I wanted to create a new survey course on slavery in American literature, art and culture from 1600 to the present. I found that there was no comprehensive collection of scholarly essays I could consult in order to cover this vast subject. So I assembled a group of the top scholars working across a broad range of topics and periods, and asked them to write a group of original essays.

Madelyn Detloff, Associate Professor, Miami University Author of The Value of Virginia Woolf I was inspired to write The Value of Woolf as a way to seriously engage the importance of imaginative work in the arts and the humanities. What does fiction do for us, in the 21st Century? Why and how does creative thinking still matter?  I wanted to approach this from a perspective that did not simply rehearse tired old pronouncements about the importance of “great books,” but from the perspective of someone who is committed to the public good – social justice, fairness, compassion, human flourishing. Culture is not a dead thing but a living constellation, and that means we are always in the process of contributing to it, for better or worse. I wanted to show that Woolf not only understood that aspect of culture, but also that through the practice of reflective and critical reading (something Woolf proposes), we ourselves shape our culture.

Children’s Fantasy Literature An Introduction Michael Levy University of Wisconsin, Stout

and Farah Mendlesohn Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge

Fantasy has been an important and much-loved part of children’s literature for hundreds of years, yet relatively little has been written about it. Children’s Fantasy Literature traces the development of the tradition of the children’s fantastic – fictions specifically written for children and fictions appropriated by them – from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, examining the work of Lewis Carroll, L. Frank Baum, C. S. Lewis, Roald Dahl, J. K. Rowling and others from across the English-speaking world. The volume considers changing views on both the nature of the child and on the appropriateness of fantasy for the child reader, the role of children’s fantasy literature in helping to develop the imagination, and its complex interactions with issues of class, politics and gender. The text analyses hundreds of works of fiction, placing each in its appropriate context within the tradition of fantasy literature. 2016 228 x 152 mm 280pp 978-1-107-01814-3 Hardback c. £50.00 / c. US$85.00 978-1-107-61029-3 Paperback c. £16.99 / c. US$27.99 Publication March 2016 For all formats available, see

The book seems to arise from a long and dedicated engagement with Old English pedagogy, and its sheer diversity and breadth of scope makes it likely that almost any teacher of Old English will find something in it of value … The rich banquet found in the Cambridge [Old English] Reader would not easily be exhausted in a semester, or even a year-long course in Old English; it is sure to inspire in both students and teachers alike a fresh dedication to the work of understanding Anglo-Saxon England.’ R.

Volume 1 begins in Roman Britain and ends with Charles II’s restoration to the throne imminent. Volume 2 begins in 1660 with the restoration of King Charles II to the throne and the re-establishment of the professional theatre, interdicted since 1642, and follows the far-reaching development of the form over two centuries and more to 1895. Volume 3 explores the rich and complex histories of English, Scottish and Welsh theatres in the ‘long’ twentieth century since 1895.

This is the first ever complete critical edition of the writings of Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea (1661–1720), including work printed in her lifetime and material left in manuscript form at her death. Textual analysis, based on print and manuscript copies in repositories across the United Kingdom and United States, reveals her revision processes and uses of manuscript and print.

The result is a complete view of her achievements that will promote more accurate assessments of her contributions to literary and cultural shifts, including perspectives on literary value, women’s equality, religion, and affairs of state. Writer and critic of the Glorious Revolution, Finch imparts rare insights into this watershed of political and cultural values. Her work represents a complex convergence of artistic innovation, political allegiance, and personal passion. Contributors: Claudia Thomas Kairoff, Jennifer Keith, Jean I. Marsden, Molly Hand, R.

A Change of Class F. Scott Fitzgerald Edited by James L. W. West III Pennsylvania State University

The twenty short stories in A Change of Class were published by F. Scott Fitzgerald between September 1931 and March 1937. Fitzgerald wrote these stories for money, which he badly needed. His wife was being treated at expensive sanitariums and he was heavily in debt to his publisher and literary agent. The stories in A Change of Class are not all among Fitzgerald’s best, but they are important in his career. They concern the Great Depression, social striving, class divisions, and professionalism. Several are set in the world of medicine and depict the lives of doctors, nurses, and their patients. The writing is strong, with vivid descriptions and sharp dialogue. A Change of Class provides freshly edited texts, based on surviving manuscripts and typescripts. Important readings, edited out or censored by magazine publishers, have been restored.

John, Lord Hervey (1696–1743), the confidant of Queen Caroline and antagonist of Alexander Pope, was a government minister, a political pamphleteer and a poet. In his verse writings, collected together for the first time in this edition, he savagely attacks his opponents, including the King and his ministers, as well as Pope, but he also expresses his deepest personal feelings. Hervey was married, with eight children, and his verse conveys his affection for his wife and family members, but his strongest commitment was to his lover, Stephen Fox. Some of his verse is written directly to Fox, but he also explores intense emotional conflicts in Ovidian epistles (which include ‘lesbian’ poems), in a verse tragedy Agrippina and through his collaborative poetic relationship with Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Although his verse was sometimes mocked by contemporaries, he was a fluent and flexible versifier and a master of poetic argument. 2016 228 x 152 mm 800pp 3 b/w illus.   978-1-107-01017-8 Hardback c. £85.00 / c. US$140.00 Publication July 2016 For all formats available, see

Countercurrents in EighteenthCentury British Poetry and Cultural History Marilyn Butler Preface by Heather Glen University of Cambridge

Witty, informative, full of sharp and provocative insights, this study by leading scholar, Marilyn Butler, offers a compelling account of the varied, ambitious ‘mythologies’ of the nation developed by writers in eighteenthcentury Britain who felt themselves to be marginalized or excluded from centres of power. ‘This study of the ‘mythologies’ informing eighteenth-century British poetry is a book that Marilyn Butler was working on at the height of her powers, when she had already published major works on Maria Edgeworth, Thomas Love Peacock, Jane Austen, and Romantic writing more broadly. Had Butler managed to publish it a quarter of a century ago, surely it would be still be vigorously engaged by students of this field, just as those other books still are. Now, thanks to the skill and assiduity of Heather Glen’s editorial endeavours, those same readers will be able to engage for the first time. What a rare experience they have in prospect.’ James Chandler, University of Chicago 2015 228 x 152 mm 237pp 978-1-107-11638-2 Hardback £24.99 / US$39.99 For all formats available, see

The Invention of English Criticism 1650–1760 Michael Gavin University of South Carolina

A lively account of the ways in which literary criticism developed through the mid-seventeenth to the mid-eighteenth centuries, from the informal verbal responses of readers and playgoers, through engagement of authors in criticising each other’s works, to the establishment of editors and book reviewers as official arbiters of literary taste. ‘In The Invention of English Criticism Michael Gavin addresses an important subject with a shrewd awareness of traditional interests of literary study; contemporary concerns with the continuities of oral, written and printed media; and a current appreciation of the ways in which gender issues trouble and complicate the broad literary marketplace of the Restoration and eighteenth century. The book features a wide variety of literary players and sites, and deploys a welcome mixture of literary genres to rewrite the history of English critical discourse in an altogether compelling way: a book of significant argumentative reach and of impressive critical and historical sophistication.’ Steven Zwicker, Stanley Elkin Professor in the Humanities in Arts and Sciences, Washington University, St Louis 2015 228 x 152 mm 227pp 978-1-107-10120-3 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 For all formats available, see

The Silver Fork Novel Fashionable Fiction in the Age of Reform Edward Copeland Pomona College, California

This first modern full-length study of the silver-fork novel argues that such novels, wildly popular in the early years of the nineteenth century and yet condemned by contemporary critics as dangerously seductive, were in fact political fictions designed to effect an alliance of the middle-classes and the aristocracy. ‘Copeland’s reading shows what informed, incisive historicist literary criticism can do.’ The Times Literary Supplement Cambridge Studies in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture, 81

Correspondence with Lady Bradshaigh and Lady Echlin Samuel Richardson Edited by Peter Sabor Université Laval, Québec

Samuel Richardson (1689–1761), renowned master printer and English novelist, was also a prolific letter writer. The Cambridge Edition of the Correspondence of Samuel Richardson is the first complete edition of his letters. These three volumes contain his correspondence, much of it published for the first time, with two fascinating women: Dorothy, Lady Bradshaigh (1705–85) and her sister Elizabeth, Lady Echlin (1704–82). Lady Bradshaigh was Richardson’s most prolific and important correspondent, challenging him about a range of issues, literary and otherwise, including his intentions for Clarissa and Sir Charles Grandison, in an iconoclastic style. Lady Echlin lived in Ireland for much of her life and provided Richardson with much information on Irish issues, including the Dublin editions of his novels. The scholarly apparatus in

this volume provides ample information about these women’s lives and their milieu, affording many insights into eighteenth-century English and Irish social and literary history. The Cambridge Edition of the Correspondence of Samuel Richardson, 5-7

Nightmare Abbey Thomas Love Peacock Edited by Nicholas A. Joukovsky Pennsylvania State University

Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866) is one of the most distinctive prose satirists of the Romantic period. The Cambridge Edition of the Novels of Thomas Love Peacock offers the first complete text


English literature – 1700 – 1830 / English literature – 1830 – 1900 of his novels to appear for more than half a century. Nightmare Abbey (1818), Peacock’s third novel, is a spirited satire that shows Peacock to be a perceptive observer and engaged critic of the literary and political preoccupations of his time. While the novel has often been characterized in popular culture either as a burlesque of the Gothic novel or a mere spoof of Romantic gloom and doom, this edition recognizes it as a purposeful critique of Romanticism. Explanatory notes illustrate the ways in which several characters are caricatures of prominent Romantic writers, including Peacock’s close friend Shelley as well as Coleridge and Byron, and also identify the various sources, some previously unsuspected, from which Peacock created their dialogue.

Crotchet Castle Thomas Love Peacock Edited by Freya Johnston University of Oxford

and Matthew Bevis University of Oxford

Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866) is one of the most distinctive prose satirists of the Romantic period. The Cambridge Edition of The Novels of Thomas Love Peacock offers the first complete text of his novels to appear for more than half a century. Crotchet Castle (1831), his sixth novel, contains all the humour and social satire for which Peacock is famous. Its lively farce is more ambitious than that of the earlier works in its range of cultural and intellectual targets, including progressivism, dogmatism, liberalism, sexism, mass education and the idiocies of the learned. The book constitutes an artistic, political and philosophical miscellany of sorts, thematically unified in its satirical emphasis on folly and dispute – and on the folly of dispute itself. This edition provides a full introduction, chronology, annotations and detailed textual and scholarly apparatus. The Cambridge Edition of the Novels of Thomas Love Peacock, 6

In Search of the New Woman

Shakespeare’s Literary Lives

A study of the ‘New Woman’ phenomenon, examining whether British women really achieved the economic independence to challenge social conventions.

The Author as Character in Fiction and Film Paul Franssen University of Utrecht

In this book, Franssen investigates the appearance of Shakespeare as a character in later literary genres, periods and cultures, analysing the political and cultural implications. It will appeal to students of Shakespeare, the novel, film studies, literary reception and creative writing. Taking an international perspective, it will also appeal to readers outside the Anglophone world. Advance praise: ‘Franssen’s meticulous scholarship and his impressive pan-European reach will immediately establish this book as the most important study of Shakespeare’s afterlife as a character since Schoenbaum’s Shakespeare’s Lives and O’Sullivan’s Shakespeare’s Other Lives. It will be as invaluable as a reference work as it will be fascinating to anyone studying the international reception of the Shakespeare canon and his posthumous personal appearances in drama, poetry and fiction.’ Michael Dobson, University of Birmingham

The Europeans Henry James Edited by Susan M. Griffin University of Louisville, Kentucky

The Cambridge Edition of the Complete Fiction of Henry James provides, for the first time, a scholarly edition of a major writer whose work continues to be read, quoted, adapted and studied. James’s The Europeans gently satirizes both early nineteenth-century New England society and the sophisticated visiting Europeans who encounter it. While this wryly comic novel has had its critical champions – F. R. Leavis and Richard Poirier among them – it has not previously received the scholarly attention it deserves. This edition, based on the work’s first book appearance (Macmillan, 1878), reconstructs the novel’s literary, cultural and historical contexts, provides extensive annotation, and gives a detailed textual history of the work, drawing on newly available James letters. It will be of interest to James scholars, book historians and students of nineteenth-century Anglo-American literature and culture, and will also re-introduce readers to the pleasures of Henry James’s early style.

The Portrait of a Lady Henry James Edited by Michael Anesko Pennsylvania State University

The Cambridge Edition of the Complete Fiction of Henry James provides, for the first time, a scholarly edition of a major writer whose work continues to be read, quoted, adapted and studied. Widely considered James’s first great work of fiction and highly innovative in its narrative techniques, The Portrait of a Lady follows the story of an ardent, idealistic American heroine, Isabel Archer, in a cosmopolitan Europe. It explores individual freedom amidst confining circumstance, romantic choice, and the consequences of disillusionment and betrayal. This edition, based on the most reliable of the work’s first book appearances (Macmillan, 1882), provides an authoritative text of one of James’s finest long novels, with extensive annotations, a detailed textual history and an analysis of the reasons for its long-held popular appeal. It will be of particular interest not only to James scholars, but also book historians

and students of nineteenth-century Anglo-American literature and culture. The Cambridge Edition of the Complete Fiction of Henry James, 7

The Ambassadors Henry James Edited by Nicola Bradbury University of Reading

The Cambridge Edition of the Complete Fiction of Henry James provides, for the first time, a scholarly edition of a major writer whose work continues to be read, quoted, adapted and studied. One of Henry James’s last three great novels, The Ambassadors offers a witty, observant and profound exploration of the contrast between American and European cultures and of the desire to ‘live all you can’. It follows the journey of self-discovery taken by a middle-aged literary gentleman, Lambert Strether, as he sheds his New England perspective and comes to appreciate cosmopolitan society and values, although not without personal cost. This edition, based on the work’s first book appearance (Methuen, 1903), illuminates its literary and cultural contexts, contains comprehensive annotation, and provides a detailed textual history. It will appeal to James scholars, book historians and students of early twentieth-century Anglo-American literature and culture, and re-introduce readers to this masterpiece.

Published in 1915, Victory: An Island Tale holds a special place in Conrad’s later writings as a bold experiment in genre. The novel variously draws upon realism, allegory and melodrama to explore large themes: commitment and solidarity, the individual’s relationship to society and the power of love. The Introduction situates the novel in Conrad’s career and traces its sources and contemporary reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus lay out the history of the work’s composition and publication, and detail the extensive interventions by Conrad’s typists, compositors and editors. Also included are notes explaining literary and historical references, a glossary of nautical terms, illustrations including pictures of early drafts, and appendixes. Established through modern textual scholarship, this edition of Victory presents the novel in a form more authoritative than any so far printed, and restores a text that has circulated in highly defective forms since its original publication.

University of Chicago

An Outcast of the Islands Joseph Conrad Edited by Allan H. Simmons St Mary’s University, Twickenham

An Outcast of the Islands (1896), Conrad’s second novel, returns to the Malay world of Almayer’s Folly (1895). Focusing on the collapse of Western values and morals in a colonial setting, the novel daringly portrays the power of erotic attraction and exposes the venal ambitions behind small- and large-scale political intrigues. The introduction situates the novel in Conrad’s career as a writer and traces its origins and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus explain the history of the work’s composition and publication, and detail the interventions of Conrad’s compositors and editors. There are notes explaining literary and historical references, a glossary of nautical terms, illustrations including pictures of early drafts, and appendixes. This edition

The Value of the Novel Peter Boxall University of Sussex

Peter Boxall’s The Value of the Novel offers a reappraisal of the political and literary value of the novel as a genre at turning point in the history both of literature and of criticism. It asks us to see how richly the novel informs our attempts to understand our present and future. ‘The Value of the Novel is a triumph. Peter Boxall offers us a sweeping, stimulating revision of critical and literary history that looks forward to the novel’s future even as it looks no less to its past. And his book is as moving as it is persuasive, because of the quality of its analysis and of Boxall’s writing. This volume, the first of a new series, sets the highest standard for subsequent installments. Boxall re-establishes criticism as a comprehensive exploratory dialogue about every aspect of the art and rhetoric of fiction. His work reminds us of the value of the intellectual distinction that is, as much as the value of the novel, our common pursuit.’ Robert Caserio, Pennsylvania State University The Value of

American literature The Complete Writings of Henry James on Art and Drama Henry James Edited by Peter Collister

Henry James’s writing extensively shows how art and drama influenced his life and work. Indeed, many of his novels and stories dramatise the circumstances of the artist’s life, and are filled with allusions to art. He also experimented continuously with the ‘scenic art’ in his fiction, and wrote plays himself. This complete collection of essays and reviews presents the observations of a major author whose critical judgments have become central to an understanding of late nineteenthcentury art and drama. Readers will find James’s texts as they first appeared, with a wealth of editorial support, which evokes the colourful world of the art scene in Britain, France and America, and of late Victorian theatre. Many of the items included have not previously been available in a scholarly edition.

American literature A History of Western American Literature Edited by Susan Kollin Montana State University

The American West is a complex region that has inspired generations of writers and artists. Often portrayed as a quintessential landscape that symbolizes promise and progress for a developing nation, the American West is also a diverse space that has experienced conflicting and competing hopes and expectations. While it is frequently imagined as a place enabling dreams of new beginnings for settler communities, it is likewise home to long-standing indigenous populations as well as many other ethnic and racial groups who have often produced different visions of the land. This History encompasses the intricacy of Western American literature by exploring myriad genres and cultural movements, from ecocriticism, settler colonial studies and transnational theory, to race, ethnic, gender and sexuality studies. Written by a host of leading historians and literary critics, this book offers readers insight into the West as a site that sustains canonical and emerging authors alike, and as a region that exceeds national boundaries in addressing long-standing global concerns and developments.

Weinstein charts the heretofore unexplored nonlinear intervals at the heart of the classic American novel, from its late eighteenth-century origins in the work of Charles Brockden Brown to its twenty-first-century flowering in the African American fiction of Edward P.

At a moment in which the humanities themselves are under siege, Time, Tense, and American Literature insists that we reimagine the power of the literary and its constitutive use of time, space, and form.

and Robert W. Trogdon Kent State University, Ohio

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 3: 1926–1929, featuring many previously unpublished letters, follows a rising star as he emerges from the literary Left Bank of Paris and moves into the American mainstream. Maxwell Perkins, legendary editor at Scribner’s, nurtured the young Hemingway’s talent, accepting his satirical novel Torrents of Spring (1926) in order to publish what would become a signature work of the twentieth century: The Sun Also Rises (1926). By early 1929 Hemingway had completed A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway’s letters of this period also reflect landmark events in his personal life, including the dissolution of his first marriage, his remarriage, the birth of his second son, and the suicide of his father. As the volume ends in April 1929, Hemingway is setting off from Key West to return to Paris and standing on the cusp of celebrity as one of the major writers of his time.

TEXTBOOK

The Grotesque in Western Art and Culture

The Poems of Catullus An Annotated Translation Catullus Edited and translated by Jeannine Diddle Uzzi University of Southern Maine

Translated by Jeffrey Thomson

The Greek Epic Cycle and its Ancient Reception A Companion Edited by Marco Fantuzzi Columbia University, New York

and Christos Tsagalis University of Thessaloniki, Greece

The poems of the Epic Cycle are assumed to be the reworking of myths and narratives which had their roots in an oral tradition predating that of many of the myths and narratives which took their present form in the Iliad and the Odyssey. The remains of these texts allow us to investigate diachronic aspects of epic diction as well as the extent of variation within it on the part of individual authors – two of the most important questions in modern research on archaic epic. They also help to illuminate the early history of Greek mythology. Access to the poems, however, has been thwarted by their current fragmentary state. This volume provides the scholarly community and graduate students with a thorough critical foundation for reading and interpreting them.

University of Maine, Farmington

The Roman poet Catullus is one of the most popular and frequently studied ancient authors. This new translation presents the poems as contemporary and concise with an energy and pace that both enhance Catullus’ appeal for non-specialists and challenge specialists to consider his work from a fresh perspective. ‘The bawdy poet Catullus wrote in the late Roman Republic, in Latin, but he will always belong to the world at large and to the present tense – rowdy, randy, excoriating, funny, acrobatic and endlessly vernacular. He is our shameless poet of the lockerroom boast and the licentious manabout-town. He sings in the gossipy, fierce voices of Eros and Id without apology, and we love him for this particular exhibition of the glory of the human spirit. Catullus is so much of the present tense that his poetry requires the fresh transfusion of retranslation on a regular basis, needs a booster shot of the vernacular to restore the rose to his cheeks. In these fine new translations, Jeffrey Thomson and Jeannine Uzzi perfectly catch the lively Catullan blend of eloquence and vulgarity. Thus, Catullus, and his poems, get to party one more time.’ Tony Hoagland, poet and writer

Lyric in the Renaissance From Petrarch to Montaigne Ullrich Langer University of Wisconsin, Madison

This wide-ranging study of the lyric as a literary genre in Renaissance Europe, by a leading scholar of the period, explores how Petrarch revolutionized love lyric and how European poetic language was changed thereafter. It includes discussions of the work of Charles d’Orléans, Ronsard, Du Bellay, and Montaigne, among others. ‘In this genuinely original and carefully meditated study, Langer is not interested in the lyric ‘self’ as usually construed or constructed, but rather in a series of textual phenomena that foreground the singularity and existence of individual objects and subjects. The power and the beauty of this book lie in its ability to give an alternate account of Renaissance lyric which avoids the Scylla of humanistic essentialism, on one hand, and the Charybidis of socialhistorical determinism, on the other, while offering a model of reading and understanding that is at once recognizable and ‘estranging’ in the very best sense.’ Albert Russell Ascoli, Terrill Distinguished Professor, University of California, Berkeley 2015 228 x 152 mm 224pp 978-1-107-11028-1 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 For all formats available, see

Dostoevsky in Context Edited by Deborah A. Martinsen Columbia University, New York

and Olga Maiorova University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

This volume explores the Russia where the great writer, Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821–1881), was born and lived. It focuses not only on the Russia depicted in Dostoevsky’s works, but also on the Russian life that he and his contemporaries experienced: on social practices and historical developments, political and cultural institutions, religious beliefs, ideological trends, artistic conventions and literary genres. Chapters by leading scholars illuminate this broad context, offer insights into Dostoevsky’s reflections on his age, and examine the expression of those reflections in his writing. Each chapter investigates a specific context and suggests how we might understand Dostoevsky in relation to it. Since Russia took so much from Western Europe throughout the imperial period, the volume also locates the Russian experience within the context of Western thought and practices, thereby offering a multidimensional view of the unfolding drama of Russia versus the West in the nineteenth century.

In the past seven centuries Dante has become world renowned, with his works translated into multiple languages and read by people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. This volume brings together interdisciplinary essays by leading, international scholars to provide a comprehensive account of the historical, cultural and intellectual context in which Dante lived and worked: from the economic, social and political scene to the feel of daily life; from education and religion to the administration of justice; from medicine to philosophy and science; from classical antiquity to popular culture; and from the dramatic transformation of urban spaces to the explosion of visual arts and music. This book, while locating Dante in relation to each of these topics, offers readers a clear and reliable idea of what life was like for Dante as an outstanding poet and intellectual in the Italy of the late Middle Ages.

Edited by Christopher Janaway University of Southampton

With the publication of Parerga and Paralipomena in 1851, there finally came some measure of the fame that Schopenhauer thought was his due. Described by Schopenhauer himself as ‘incomparably more popular than everything up till now’, Parerga is a miscellany of essays addressing themes that complement his work The World as Will and Representation, along with more divergent, speculative pieces. It includes essays on method, logic, the intellect, Kant, pantheism, natural science, religion, education, and language. The present volume offers a new translation, a substantial introduction explaining the context of the essays, and extensive editorial notes on the different published versions of the work. This readable and scholarly edition will be an essential reference for those studying Schopenhauer, the history of philosophy, and nineteenthcentury German philosophy.

The Cambridge History of Japanese Literature Edited by Haruo Shirane Columbia University, New York

and Tomi Suzuki Columbia University, New York

With David Lurie Columbia University, New York

The Cambridge History of Japanese Literature provides, for the first time, a history of Japanese literature with comprehensive coverage of the premodern and modern eras in a single volume. The book is arranged topically in a series of short, accessible chapters for easy access and reference, giving insight into both canonical texts and many lesser known, popular genres, from centuries-old folk literature to the detective fiction of modern times. The various period introductions provide an overview of recurrent issues that span many decades, if not centuries. The book also places Japanese literature in a wider East Asian tradition of Sinitic writing and provides comprehensive coverage of women’s literature as well as new popular literary forms, including manga (comic books). An extensive bibliography of works in English enables readers to continue to explore this rich tradition through translations and secondary reading.

A History of the Indian Novel in English Edited by Ulka Anjaria Brandeis University, Massachusetts

A History of the Indian Novel in English traces the development of the Indian novel from its beginnings in the late nineteenth century up until the present day. Beginning with an extensive introduction that charts important theoretical contributions to the field, this History includes extensive essays that shed light on the legacy of English in Indian writing. Organized thematically, these essays examine how English was ‘made Indian’ by writers who used the language to address specifically Indian concerns. Such concerns revolved around the question of what it means to be modern as well as how the novel could be used for anti-colonial activism. By the 1980s, the Indian novel in English was a global phenomenon, and India is now the third largest publisher of English-language books. Written by a host of leading scholars, this History invites readers to question conventional accounts of India’s literary history. Contributors: Ulka Anjaria, Supriya Chaudhuri, Satya P.

Advance praise: ‘Lyne approaches memory as an elastic metaphor. Early modern memory culture adheres to no single model of memory; neither does Lyne’s argument … by directly addressing specific sets of questions in cognitive science, Lyne provides a robust and humanistic response, an intertext as it were, to ongoing social-scientific research in memory … in terms of its contribution to literary theory, this is the strongest work on early modern memory that I have read.’ Lina Perkins Wilder, Connecticut College 2016 228 x 152 mm 264pp 3 b/w illus.   978-1-107-08344-8 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 Publication February 2016 For all formats available, see

The Cambridge Guide to the Worlds of Shakespeare aims to replicate the expansive reach of Shakespeare’s global reputation. In pursuit of that vision, this work is transhistorical, international

and interdisciplinary. Shakespeare’s World, 1500–1660, Volume 1, includes a comprehensive survey of the world in which Shakespeare and his contemporaries lived, while The World’s Shakespeare, 1660–Present, Volume 2, examines what the world has made of Shakespeare as a cultural icon over the past four centuries. For each of the work’s twenty-eight broad subject areas, ranging from translation to popular culture to performing arts, an overview is followed by a series of shorter essays taking up particular aspects of the subject at hand. Richly illustrated with more than three hundred images between the two volumes, this work brings the world, life and afterlife of Shakespeare to readers, from non-academic Shakespeare fans and students to theater professionals and Shakespeare scholars.

Milton’s Visual Imagination Imagery in Paradise Lost Stephen Dobranski Georgia State University

Critics have traditionally thought of John Milton as an author who wrote for the ear more than the eye. In Milton’s Visual Imagination, Stephen B. Dobranski proposes that, on the contrary, Milton enriches his biblical source text with acute and sometimes astonishing visual details. 2015 228 x 152 mm 260pp 12 b/w illus.   978-1-107-09439-0 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 For all formats available, see

The Shakespeare Circle An Alternative Biography Edited by Paul Edmondson The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

and Stanley Wells The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

This original and enlightening book casts fresh light on Shakespeare by examining the lives of his relatives, friends, fellow-actors, collaborators and patrons both in their own right and in relation to his life. Well-known figures such as Richard Burbage, Ben Jonson and Thomas Middleton are freshly considered; little-known but relevant lives are brought to the fore, and revisionist views are expressed on such matters as Shakespeare‘s wealth, his family and personal relationships, and his social status. Written by a distinguished team, including some of the foremost biographers, writers and Shakespeare scholars of today, this enthralling volume forms an original contribution to Shakespearian biography and Elizabethan and Jacobean social history. It will interest anyone looking to learn something new about the dramatist and the times in which he lived. A supplementary website offers imagined first-person audio accounts from the featured subjects. ‘Wonderfully conceived and executed, and drawing on the expertise of some of the finest literary historians at work today, The Shakespeare Circle offers a richly rewarding alternative to the ‘cradle to grave’ biography, allowing us to see Shakespeare afresh through the lives of his friends, relatives, neighbours, fellow actors and rivals.’ James Shapiro, Columbia University, New York

Shakespeare and the Visual Imagination

Lord Rochester in the Restoration World

Stuart Sillars

Edited by Matthew C. Augustine

Universitetet i Bergen, Norway

University of St Andrews, Scotland

This book is a fully illustrated study of Shakespeare’s knowledge of visual art, its theories and contemporary debates, and their importance in his plays and poems. It will be of value for upper-level students and academic researchers of Shakespeare, as well as readers interested in early modern theatre, literature and art history.

and Steven N. Zwicker

‘Sillars’ concern is with the concept of visual art as much as it is with art objects themselves. The argument that the theatre itself has a specific visual identity and that Shakespeare uses visual ideas to explore that identity is an especially fresh approach and one that works to complicate the depictions of art objects in the plays. This is a remarkable and important book and one that demonstrates compendious knowledge of both the literary and visual traditions and casts a genuinely new light on Shakespeare’s works.’ Dympna C.

David Barnett

Founded by Bertolt Brecht and his wife Helene Weigel in 1949, the Berliner Ensemble’s productions and philosophy have been hugely influential on the work of theatre-makers around the world. David Barnett’s book is the first study of the company in any language and is based upon extensive archival research.

Université Laval, Québec

When Shaw died in 1950, the world lost one of its most well-known authors, a revolutionary who was as renowned for his personality as he was for his humour, humanity, and rebellious thinking. He remains a compelling figure who deserves attention not only for how influential he was in his time, but for how relevant he is to ours. This collection sets Shaw’s life and achievements in context, with 42 scholarly essays devoted to subjects that interested him and defined his work. Contributors explore a wide range of themes, moving from factors that were formative in Shaw’s life, to the artistic work that made him most famous and the institutions with which he worked, to the political and social issues that consumed much of his attention, and, finally, to his influence and reception. Presenting fresh material and arguments, this collection will point to new directions of research for future scholars.
