THE C AMBRIDGE COMPANION TO

English literature – Renaissance and early modern to 1700

Each essay in this Companion examines one or more literary texts and a religious tradition to illustrate how we can understand both literature and religion better by looking at them in tandem. Unlike most literature and religion books, which tend to focus on Christianity and take a highly theoretical approach inappropriate for nonspecialists, The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Religion offers an accessible treatment of both Dharmic and Abrahamic traditions. It provides close readings of texts rather than surveys of large topics, making it an ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate students of literature and religion.

Praise for Volume I

“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

“After reading and absorbing this wonderful book, I am surprised that the lasting impact is not so much about the man and his work as the quality of the letter writing itself. At times, peering into Beckett’s private life can feel improper, yet we are always rescued by so many very fine lines, some so funny, some so human … It is again a beautifully wrought publication and thanks to its four editors, it has an artistry all of its own.” Sean Doran, The Independent

samuel beckett – 1966 1989

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

This fourth and final volume of The Letters of Samuel Beckett takes the author through the final twenty-four years of what was, as he saw it, a surprisingly long life. Beckett may always have felt sympathy for the aged, but now he has to live the aging process from within, with the various privations it brings, not least the winnowing of old friends and artistic collaborators. He demonstrates a remarkable fortitude in the face of grief, injury, and illness, as well as a determination to continue working to the last. During these years he produces many of his finest and most concentrated works for theatre, plays that include Not II, Footfalls, A Piece of Monologue, Rockaby, Ohio Impromptu, and Catastrophe; for television he writes Ghost Trio, … but the clouds …, Quad, and Nacht und Träume; while in prose, after the formidable density of the work of the 1960s, follows the lyrical expansiveness of the late “trilogy” that comprises Company, Ill Seen Ill Said, and Worstward Ho. In 1969, Beckett is awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, and the letters show him struggling to cope with the pressures created by his ever-growing international fame. They reveal him, later, turning his mind to his legacy, as is seen through his interactions with biographers and archivists. And, while his letters may grow shorter as he ages, they continue to reveal his search for new and poignant ways to communicate to his correspondents how words can illuminate the darkness – a search that continued until his death in 1989 at the age of 83. Critical introductions to the letters offer contextual information; also provided are chronologies, explanatory notes, profiles of Beckett’s chief correspondents, and translations of writings not in English.

KENT PUCKET T


Featured authors Jason Harding, University of Durham Editor of The New Cambridge Companion to T. S. Eliot I wanted this collection to reflect recent advances in Eliot scholarship and criticism that have arisen from access to private papers and archives. There is an emphasis here on fresh readings of major works by leading scholars and critics, supplemented by detailed attention to areas like gender and sexuality, treated only in passing in the previous Companion. I believe this collection of essays will stimulate new avenues of inquiry among a global 21st-century readership.

THE C AMBRIDGE COMPANION TO

I chose to edit this volume because we still don’t know what it means to do

For two decades, the ‘transnational turn’ in literary studies has generated enormous comment and controversy. This Companion provides a comprehensive account of the scope, impact, and critical possibilities of the transnational turn American literary studies. in It situates the study of American literature in relation to ethnic, postcolonial, and hemispheric studies. Leading scholars open up ranging examinations of widetransnationalism in American literature - through form and aesthetics, theories of nation, gender, sexuality, religion, and race, as well as through conventional forms of historical periodization. Offering a new map of American literature in the global era, this volume provides a history of the field, key debates, and instances of literary readings that convey the way in which transnationalism may be seen as a method, not just a description of literary that engages more than work one nation. Contributors identify the key modes writers have responded by which to major historical, political, and ethical issues prompted by the globalization of literary studies.

Children’s Fantasy Literature An Introduction Michael Levy 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.

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. ‘Levy and Mendlesohn give a convincing explanation for a distinctively post-Second World War literature where children are unprotected, where they have agency and responsibility, where they face true and terrible evil. As time goes on, the stakes continue to rise.

A Mirror for Magistrates in Context Literature, History, and Politics in Early Modern England Edited by Harriet Archer University of Newcastle upon Tyne

This is the first essay collection on A Mirror for Magistrates, the most popular work of English literature in the age of Shakespeare. The Mirror is here analysed by major scholars who discuss its meaning and significance, and assess the extent of its influence. ‘This volume has the comprehensive quality of a handbook, with wideranging and thorough contributions on the Mirror’s bibliographic history; its sources, influences, and analogues; on genre, rhetoric, the writing of history, Elizabethan politics and literature. But it’s also imaginative, full of new critical approaches, multivocal and pleasingly readable in its concise chapters. Like the Mirror itself – whose authors are represented in conversation as they write – this collection has the feeling of scholars talking productively to one another: interacting with and sometimes disagreeing with one another’s views, they are alive to the mercurial qualities of the text, its ‘vanishing acts’ and temporal twists and turns.’ Mary Ann Lund, University of Leicester 2016 228 x 152 mm 272pp 978-1-107-10435-8 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 For all formats available, see

Edmund Spenser in Context Edited by Andrew Escobedo Ohio University

Edmund Spenser’s poetry remains an indispensable touchstone of English literary history. Yet for modern readers his deliberate use of archaic language and his allegorical mode of writing can become barriers to understanding his poetry. This volume of thirty-seven essays, written by distinguished scholars, offers a rich introduction to the literary, political and religious contexts that shaped Spenser’s poetry, including the environment in which he lived, the genres he drew upon, and the influences that helped to fashion his art. The collection reveals the multiple personae that Spenser constructs within his work: to read Spenser is to read a rich archive of literary forms, and this volume provides the contexts in which to do so. A further reading list at the end of the volume will prove invaluable to further study. Contributors: Andrew Escobedo, Andrew Wallace, William A.

The Value of Milton John Leonard University of Western Ontario

In The Value of Milton, leading critic John Leonard explores the writings of John Milton from his early poetry to his major prose. Leonard examines the significance of his most celebrated verse and the function of biblical allegory, classical culture and the language that gives Milton his perennial appeal. ‘John Leonard’s authority as a preeminent Miltonist is widely acknowledged. His new book is a compelling tour de force: accessible, lively, informative, and critically acute. Leonard displays an uncanny analytic flair that shows rather than tells how an effective reading of Milton might be conducted, and he writes with such verve that it is hard to imagine a scholarly book on Milton more attractive and accessible to the intelligent general reader. The Value of Milton is entertaining – without being shallow or trivializing – and frequently wry, witty, and plain funny. It emphasizes Milton’s relevance to issues that remain urgent and alive – yet without any hint that Milton is valuable merely because he is relevant today. This book has the power, amid serious discussion, to move to both laughter and tears. Repeatedly it left me feeling I had grasped the muchvaunted sublimity of Milton for the first time.’ Dennis Danielson, University of British Columbia

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 840pp 3 b/w illus.   978-1-107-01017-8 Hardback £89.99 / US$120.00 For all formats available, see

Correspondence with Lady Bradshaigh and Lady Echlin Samuel Richardson Edited by Peter Sabor McGill University, Montréal

Samuel Richardson (1689–1761), renowned English novelist and master printer, 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 information on Irish issues, including the Dublin editions of his novels. The scholarly apparatus in this volume furnishes a wealth of material about these women’s lives and their milieu, affording many insights

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 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.

Irish Political Writings after 1725 A Modest Proposal and Other Works Jonathan Swift Edited by David Hayton

Journalism and the Periodical Press in NineteenthCentury Britain Edited by Joanne Shattock

University of Nottingham

This latest volume of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jonathan Swift is the first fully annotated edition of Swift’s Irish prose writings from 1726 to 1737. Works in this volume include the famous A Modest Proposal, the acerbic A Short View of the State of Ireland, Swift’s contributions to The Intelligencer, and other prose pieces of satire, polemic and intervention into contemporary Irish politics. Most of these works have never previously been published with full scholarly annotation, or with a complete and textually authoritative apparatus. This volume offers a comprehensive introduction, setting Swift’s writings of the period into their full historical, political and economic context. In addition to a critical introduction and appendices, there is also an up-todate bibliography. The volume enables Swift’s role as a political and social commentator in the years after the publication of Gulliver’s Travels to be understood with new clarity.

Introduction by Richard Niland University of Strathclyde

Assisted by Aaron Zacks University of Texas, Austin

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. The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad

The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism Volume 6: The Nineteenth Century, c.1830–1914 Edited by M. A. R. Habib Rutgers University, New Jersey

In the nineteenth century, literary criticism first developed into an autonomous, professional discipline in the universities. This volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative study of the vast field of literary criticism between 1830 and 1914. In over thirty essays written from a broad range of perspectives, international scholars examine the growth of literary criticism as an institution, and the major critical developments in diverse national traditions and in different genres, as well as the major movements of Realism, Naturalism, Symbolism and Decadence. The History offers a detailed focus on some of the era’s great critical figures, such as Sainte-Beuve, Hippolyte Taine and Matthew Arnold, and includes essays devoted to the connections of literary criticism with other disciplines in science, the arts and Biblical studies. The publication of this volume marks the completion of the monumental Cambridge History of Literary Criticism from antiquity to the present day. ‘… a model of how to present sharp, original thinking without scanting the responsibility to provide a usable map … This volume provides a series of helpful starting points for exploring the range of thinking about literature that [the] extraordinary growth in critical writing helped to stimulate.’ Stefan Collini, Modern Philology

The Cambridge History of Victorian Literature Edited by Kate Flint University of Southern California

This collaborative History aims to become the standard work on Victorian literature for the twenty-first century. Well-known scholars introduce readers to their particular fields, discuss influential critical debates and offer illuminating contextual detail to situate authors and works in their wider cultural and historical contexts. Sections on publishing and readership and a chronological survey of major literary developments between 1837 and 1901, are followed by essays on topics including sexuality, sensation, cityscapes, melodrama, epic and economics. Victorian writing is placed in its complex relation to the Empire, Europe and America, as well as to Britain’s component nations. The final chapters consider how Victorian literature, and the period as a whole, influenced twentieth-century writers. Original, lucid and stimulating, each chapter is an important contribution to Victorian literary studies. Together, the contributors create an engaging discussion of the ways in which the Victorians saw themselves and of how their influence has persisted. ‘The consistently high quality of the thirty-three essays insures reliable information, perceptive commentary, and up-to-the-minute critical perspectives.’ Review 19 (nbol-19.org)

The Cambridge History of Modernism Edited by Vincent Sherry Washington University, St Louis

The Cambridge History of Modernism is the first comprehensive history of modernism in the distinguished Cambridge Histories collection. It identifies a distinctive temperament of ‘modernism’ within the ‘modern’ period, establishing the circumstances of modernized life as the ground and warrant for an art that becomes ‘modernist’ by virtue of its demonstrably self-conscious involvement in this modern condition. Following this sensibility from the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, tracking its manifestations across pan-European and transatlantic locations, the forty-three chapters offer a remarkable combination of breadth and focus. Prominent scholars of modernism provide analytical narratives of its literature, music, visual arts, architecture, philosophy, and science, offering circumstantial accounts of its diverse personnel in their many settings. These historically informed readings offer definitive accounts of the major work of twentieth-century cultural history and provide a new cornerstone for the study of modernism in the current century.

The Outcry Henry James Edited by Jean Chothia University of Cambridge

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. The Outcry, James’s last completed novel, is an ironic depiction of the contemporary art market in which wealthy Americans are plundering British-owned treasures. James adapted the work, originally written as a play, into novel form with great success. This edition, based on the work’s first book appearance in 1911, reconstructs the novel’s literary, cultural and historical contexts, includes extensive annotation, and gives a detailed textual history. In exploring the process of adaptation it allows particular insight into James’s skills as a novelist. The volume will be of interest to James scholars, art and theatre historians and students of nineteenth- and twentiethcentury Anglo-American literature, while

An Outcast of the Islands

The Value of Virginia Woolf

Joseph Conrad Edited by Allan H. Simmons

Madelyn Detloff

St Mary’s University, Twickenham

In The Value of Virginia Woolf, Madelyn Detloff explores the writings of Virginia Woolf from her early texts to her inventive novels. Detloff examines the significance of her fiction and the function of time and allegory, natural and urban spaces, voice and language that give Woolf’s writings their perennial appeal.

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 presents the novel and its preface in forms more authoritative than any so far printed, and restores a text that has circulated in defective forms since its original publication.

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. The editorial apparatus includes general introductions, chronologies, textual variants sections, and biographical guides to artists and actors. 2016 228 x 152 mm 1000pp 25 b/w illus.   978-1-316-50442-0 2 Volume Hardback Set £140.00 / US$220.00 For all formats available, see

The Complete Writings of Henry James on Art and Drama Volume 2: Drama Henry James Edited by Peter Collister

Henry James’s experience of drama began in the New York theatres of his 1850s childhood; in Europe he became familiar with the London theatre and the Théâtre-Français in Paris. He went on to experiment continuously with the ‘scenic art’ in his fiction, and to write plays himself. This complete collection of James’s essays and reviews on drama discusses a range of theatre, including productions of Shakespeare, Tennyson, ‘well-made’ French plays and early performances of Ibsen.

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.

Time, Tense, and American Literature When Is Now? Cindy Weinstein California Institute of Technology

In Time, Tense, and American Literature, Cindy Weinstein examines canonical American authors who employ a range of tenses to tell a story that has already taken place. This book argues that key texts in the archive of American literature are inconsistent in their retrospective status, ricocheting between past, present, and future. ‘Cindy Weinstein, our finest contemporary scholar of sentimentalism, makes the temporal turn in Time, Tense, and American Literature, casting time itself as her protagonist. 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. Jones. 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. Weinstein’s book should become required reading for scholars of American literature, the new

This is the first comprehensive and accessible survey in English of Old Norse eddic poetry: a remarkable body of literature rooted in the Viking Age, which is a critical source for the study of early Scandinavian myths, poetics, culture and society. Dramatically recreating the voices of the legendary past, eddic poems distil moments of high emotion as human heroes and supernatural beings alike grapple with betrayal, loyalty, mortality and love. These poems relate the most famous deeds of gods such as Óðinn and þórr with their adversaries the giants; they bring to life the often fraught interactions between kings, queens and heroes as well as their encounters with valkyries, elves, dragons and dwarfs. Written by leading international scholars, the chapters in this volume showcase the poetic riches of the eddic corpus, and reveal its relevance to the history of poetics, gender studies, pre-Christian religions, art history and archaeology.

and Lois More Overbeck Emory University, Atlanta

This fourth and final volume, which completes the Cambridge edition of The Letters of Samuel Beckett, covers the final twenty-four years of what was, as Beckett saw it, a surprisingly long life. During these years he produced many of his finest and most concentrated works for theatre, plays that included Not I, Ohio Impromptu, and Catastrophe; for television he wrote Eh Joe and Ghost Trio; while in prose, he produced the late ‘trilogy’ that comprises Company, Ill Seen Ill Said, and Worstward Ho. In 1969, Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, and the letters from this period show him struggling to cope with the pressures created by his ever-growing international fame. The letters reveal how, later, he turned his mind to his legacy, as seen through his interactions with biographers and archivists. This volume also provides chronologies, explanatory notes, translations, and profiles of Beckett’s chief correspondents. ‘… it is the beauty of this full collection – surely one of the greatest editions of letters ever published – that this in turn takes us back to the first volume …’ The New York Review of Books

Using Japanese Synonyms A. E. Backhouse Hokkaido University, Japan

This book is aimed at English-speaking learners of Japanese and seeks to extend their control of vocabulary in both production and comprehension. Japanese near-synonyms are given clear descriptions of meaning (through English definitions) and use (in terms of combination, collocation and situational factors) and illustrated by authentic examples. ‘Using Japanese Synonyms is a thesaurus and reference for the intermediate and advanced student of Japanese. The hundreds of words and authentic examples are organized into approximately 300 semantic frames, which range literally from A (abunai) to Z (zenzen). Within each frame, the words and examples are chosen to highlight potential problems of understanding and differentiation for English-speaking learners. Meaning and register are explicitly addressed. The volume includes two indices for easy access and cross-referencing, and it can be used for self-study or in a classroom setting.’ William McClure, Queens College, City University of New York 2016 238 x 169 mm 458pp 978-1-107-14706-5 Hardback £89.99 / US$140.00 For all formats available, see

Literary theory A Global History of Literature and the Environment Edited by John Parham University of Worcester

and Louise Westling University of Oregon

In A Global History of Literature and the Environment, an international group of scholars illustrate the immense riches of environmental writing from the earliest literary periods down to the present. It addresses ancient writings about human/animal/plant relations from India, classical Greece, Chinese and Japanese literature, the Maya Popol Vuh, Islamic texts, medieval European works, eighteenth-century and Romantic ecologies, colonial/postcolonial environmental interrelations, responses to industrialization, and the emerging literatures of the world in the present Anthropocene moment. Essays range from Trinidad to New Zealand, Estonia to Brazil. Discussion of these texts indicates a variety of ways environmental criticism can fruitfully engage literary works and cultures from every continent and every historical period. This is a uniquely varied and rich international history of environmental writing from ancient Mesopotamian and Asian works to the present. It provides a compelling account of a topic that is crucial to twenty-first-century global literary studies.
