Living Poetry

Poetry

Reading Poems from Shakespeare to Don Paterson

The Ultimate Guide

William Hutchings, formerly Senior Lecturer in English Literature, and formerly Director, Centre for Excellence in Enquiry-Based Learning, University of Manchester, UK

‘A passionately written and clear introduction that offers a strong overview of English poetry. It is an extremely useful book and guides readers through an impressive range of poems, granting them an array of ideas to be developed in their own work.’ - Emma Mason, Reader in English Literature, University of Warwick, UK ‘There’s nothing currently available that is quite so friendly or so steady in its writing...The writing is clear and precise and uncluttered by jargon. I think many will welcome such a volume and find it very helpful.’ - Martin Coyle, Professor of English Literature, Cardiff University, UK Living Poetry demonstrates that poems are vital expressions of how we live, feel and think. Lucidly written and jargon free, it introduces a range of poems from the Elizabethan age to the present day, presenting practical models of close reading and a stimulating rationale for the power of poetry to move and excite us.

The book provides a compact history of English poetry from the sixteenth century to the present day, alongside coverage of all the major critical and theoretical approaches to verse.

John A. Pitcher, Visiting Scholar, Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies, University of British Columbia, Canada

Michaela Paasche Grudin, Emerita, Lewis and Clark College, USA and Robert Grudin, Professor Emerita, University of Oregon, USA

This book demonstrates how post-structuralist and psychoanalytic theory can serve to clarify structures of identity and economies of desire in medieval texts.

Boccaccio's Decameron and the Ciceronian Renaissance demonstrates that Boccaccio's puzzling masterpiece takes on organic consistency when viewed as an early modern adaptation of a pre-Christian, humanistic vision.

Nizar F. Hermes, received his PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Toronto, Canada

Contrary to the monolithic impression left by postcolonial theories of Orientalism, the book makes the case that Orientals did not exist solely to be gazed at.

Shakespeare and the Making of Theatre Bridget Escolme, Senior Lecturer in Drama, Queen Mary, University of London, UK and Stuart Hampton-Reeves, Professor of Research-informed Teaching, University of Central Lancashire, UK

A highly engaging text that approaches Shakespeare as a maker of theatre, as well as a writer of literature. Leading performance critics dismantle Shakespeare's texts, identifying theatrical cues in ways which develop understanding of the underlying theatricality of Shakespeare's plays and stimulate further performances.

Reading Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s Irrational Endings

Michael Alexander, University of St. Andrews, UK

The Problem Plays

Michael Alexander introduces twenty of Shakespeare's plays, and some of his sonnets, prefaced by a sketch of his life and of the theatre of his day. He includes a discussion of the historical, cultural and literary contexts that surrounded Shakespeare, but focuses on what immediately arises from the reading of a Shakespeare play or poem.

'Problem Plays’ has been an awkward category for those Shakespeare plays that don’t fit the conventional groupings. Expanding from the traditional three plays to six, the book argues that they share dramatic structures designed intentionally by Shakespeare to disturb his audience by frustrating their expectations.

Kiernan Ryan, Professor of English, Royal Holloway University of London and Fellow of Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge, UK

‘I find it impossible to imagine a more brilliant book about Shakespeare’s comedies than this one. It’s beautifully written, to the extent that one finds oneself as happily lost in its sinuous, musical sentences as in a favourite song or symphony. And its overall argument is convincingly and grippingly developed from the first chapter to the last...Few commentators have written in such accurate yet dazzling prose about Shakespeare since Coleridge told us he wrote Venus and Adonis ‘as if he were of another planet’...It’s the first great book on its subject of the 21st century.’ - Rob Maslen, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Glasgow, UK April 2009 Hardback Paperback

Wonder in Shakespeare

Palgrave Shakespeare Studies cont...

Edited by Adam Max Cohen, earned his PhD from the University of Virginia, USA, and was an Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, USA

Shakespeare and the Truth of Love The Mystery of ‘The Phoenix and Turtle’ James P. Bednarz, Long Island University, USA

‘Shakespeare’s most elusive, compelling, deceptively limpid work has at last found its critic. In this eloquent account, attentive to history, but above all to poetry, James Bednarz involves his readers as fellow explorers in a journey towards the heart of the poem’s mystery.’Catherine Belsey, Swansea University, UK ‘Once in a very long while you come across a book that utterly transforms your understanding of Shakespeare. This is one of those books. Shakespeare and the Truth of Love is brilliant, elegantly argued, and persuasive.’ - James Shapiro, author of 1599 and Contested Will A comprehensive study of Shakespeare’s forgotten masterpiece The Phoenix and Turtle. Bednarz confronts the question of why one of the greatest poems in the English language is customarily ignored or misconstrued by Shakespeare biographers, literary historians, and critics. Contents: List of Illustrations / Acknowledgments / Introduction / The Mystery of ‘The Phoenix and Turtle’ / Eliminating Essex: Richard II and the Diverse Poetical Essays / Literary Politics: The Publication of Love’s Martyr / Incorporate Selves: Shakespeare’s Mythmaking / Shakespeare’s Poetic Theology / Metaphysical Wit from Shakespeare to Donne / Epilogue: ‘If what parts, can so remaine’ / Appendix: Diverse Poetical Essays / Index March 2012 Hardback

264pp £50.00

In the first part of this book, Adam Max Cohen embraces the many meanings of wonder in order to challenge the generic divides between comedy, tragedy, history, and romance and suggests that Shakespeare’s primary goal in crafting each of his playworlds was the evocation of one or more varieties of wonder.  Contents: PART I: WONDER IN SHAKESPEARE / Wonder, Amazement, and Surprise: Beginning a Stunning Story / Resurrections of the Living and the Dead: Natural and Spiritual Bodies and Souls / ‘Die to live’: Various Forms of Empathetic Wonder / The Metaphorical Use of the Prodigious Birth Tradition / More of a Prodigy than a Prophecy / Wonder, Awe, and Admiration: Shakespeare’s Cabinets of Curiosity / Transalpine Wonders: Shakespeare’s Marvelous Aesthetics / PART II: SIX RESPONSES TO WONDER IN SHAKESPEARE / Embodying Wonder; M.Tarnoff / The Aesthetic Resurrection of the ‘death-mark’d’ lovers in Romeo and Juliet; J.Segal / The ‘Spectacle of Conversion,’ Wonder, and Film in The Merchant of Venice; M.G.Aune / God Save the King: Richard IIin Wonder-land; R.Steinberger / A World of (No) Wonder, or No Wonder-Wounded Heros Here: Toward a Theory on the Vanishing Mediation of ‘No Wonder’ in Shakespeare’s Theater; K.Keating & B.Reynolds / Passing for Truth: Wonder Tales and Their Audiences in Othello; J.B.Fisher January 2012 Hardback

Paul Westover, Assistant Professor of English, Brigham Young University, USA

'This well-researched and thought-provoking study focuses on the search for physical places, especially graves, associated with revered authors, and on the spiritual communion that was thought possible at such sites between dead writer and living reader. Westover sheds fascinating new light on literary genres, touristic practices, canon-formation, and cultural nationalism, and spars entertainingly with current critical trends. This investigation of the cult of the literary dead brings Romantic culture very much alive.’ - Professor Robin Jarvis, University of the West of England, UK Necromanticism is a study of literary pilgrimage: readers’ compulsion to visit literary homes, landscapes, and (especially) graves during the long Romantic period. The book draws on the histories of tourism and literary genres to highlight Romanticism’s recourse to the dead in its reading, writing, and canon-making practices.

Romantic Consciousness

Blake to Mary Shelley

A Sourcebook

John Beer, Emeritus Professor and Fellow of Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge, UK

At the end of the eighteenth century English writers probed the riddle of human consciousness and how it differed from ‘Being’ in a divine or universal sense. In the first of two studies, now available in paperback with a new Preface, Beer traces this question in work by Blake, Coleridge and Wordsworth and its impact on successors such as Keats, Byron and the Shelleys.

'Lucid, infectiously enthusiastic and unignorable...Beer has shown himself to be a critic unusually capable of handling the reach and dynamics of the Coleridgean repertoire.’ - Paul Hamilton, Queen Mary, University of London, UK, Romanticism ‘Beer’s book makes a persuasive case for the enduring legacy of the Romantic preoccupation with that part of the self that is distinct from ‘conscious ratiocination.’ - Ann Gaylin, Times Literary Supplement In this sequel to Romantic Consciousness, now available in paperback, Beer discusses further questions of human consciousness. Discussions of questions of ‘Being’ by thinkers such as Heidegger are accompanied by the assertion that writers such as Woolf and Lawrence, followed by Hughes and Plath, owed deeper debt than philosophical contemporaries to their Romantic predecessors.

Victorian Unfinished Novels

William Blake: The Poems

The Imperfect Page

2nd edition

Saverio Tomaiuolo, Lecturer in English Language and Literature, Cassino University, Italy

'Lucid and perceptive, Marsh’s new edition of his valuable study brilliantly restores to readers and students alike the depth and brightness of Blake’s genius.’ - John Blades, formerly at University of Leeds, UK

The first detailed study on the subject of Victorian unfinished novels, this book sheds further light on novels by major authors that have been neglected by critical studies and focuses in a new way on critically acclaimed masterpieces, offering a counter-reading of the nineteenth-century literary canon.

Focusing on Songs of Innocence and Experience, this book uses close analysis and interpretation of individual poems to build the reader’s confidence when approaching Blake’s lyrics. The new edition includes additional textual analyses, expanded contextual material, discussion of the work of recent critics, and fully updated Further Reading.

'Victorian Unfinished Novels is an important project – so much so one wonders why nobody has written a book like this before. Tomaiuolo reveals how unresolved patterns and tensions in the unfinished novel offer a powerful source of analysis in literary criticism. An author’s logistical inability to tidy away his or her work materials results in a complex exposition of the ways in which context, production and ideology shape the literary.’ - Andrew Mangham, Lecturer in English, University of Reading, UK

The Music of Verse

Romantic Fiat

A Literary Life

Metrical Experiment in Nineteenth-Century Poetry

Demystification and Enchantment in Lyric Poetry

R.S. White, Australian Professorial Fellow and Professor of English and Cultural Studies, University of Western Australia, Australia

Joseph Phelan, Principal Lecturer in English/Reader in Nineteenth-Century Literature, De Montfort University, UK

'A great strength of this impressive biography is the way it accompanies Keats’s life narrative with critical and interpretative passages on the poetry - there is much in these pages that will provoke thought for students and more experienced Keatsians.’ - Professor Nicholas Roe, University of St. Andrews, UK

Through its recovery of the metrical principles underlying the work of some of the century’s major poets, this study highlights the intricacy of the relation between the ‘music’ of verse and its meaning, and helping us to understand the way in which the ferment of metrical experiment eventually led to the emergence of free verse.

At the heart of this Literary Life, now available in paperback, is fresh interpretations of Keats’s most loved poems, alongside other neglected but rich poems. The readings are placed in the context of his letters to family and friends, his medical training, radical politics of the time, his love for Fanny Brawne, his coterie of literary figures and his tragic early death.

In the Romantic period’s economics of ‘fiat’ money the legacy of romanticism involves absolutist gestures of verbal fiat.

Narratives of Child Neglect in Romantic and Victorian Culture

Travel Writing and Tourism in Britain and Ireland Edited by Benjamin Colbert, Reader in English and Co-director, Centre for Transnational and Transcultural Research, University of Wolverhampton, UK

Galia Benziman, Lecturer in Comparative Literature, Open University of Israel

'...a major intervention in the history of childhood and its representations in nineteenth-century English literature. Benziman offers a fresh, compelling analysis of familiar concepts, skillfully demonstrating the persistence of older Puritan and regulative attitudes toward the literary child within texts by Blake, Wordsworth, Dickens, and others that have long been identified unambiguously with the emerging reformist and liberatory treatment of childhood during the Romantic and Victorian periods.’ - Professor John Jordan, Department of Literature, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA The book offers a revision of the largely-accepted critical narrative about the development of the cultural image of the child during the first half of the nineteenth century November 2011 272pp Hardback £50.00

Carl Krockel, Independent Researcher

David Rando, Assistant Professor of English, Trinity University, USA

This is the first book to consistently read English Modernist literature as testimony to trauma of the First and Second World Wars. Focusing upon T.S. Eliot and D.H. Lawrence, it examines the impact of war upon their lives and their strategies to resist it through literary innovation.

Modernist Fiction and News characterizes uses novel reading of Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, John Dos Passos, and Virginia Woolf to explore how these authors engaged with a rapidly expanding news industry in order to establish an experimental space in which to represent experience with the hope of greater immediacy and faithfulness to reality.

The Literary North

Middlebrow Literary Cultures

Edited by Katharine Cockin, Professor of English and Head of Department, University of Hull, UK

According to Orwell, the North was ‘a strange country.’ In an industrial landscape, its inhabitants seem to inhabit a bleak world caught in the gaze of 1930s realism.

The Battle of the Brows, 1920-1960 Edited by Erica Brown, Associate Lecturer, Department of English and Mary Grover, Senior Lecturer, both at Sheffield Hallam University, UK

The literary ‘middle ground’, once dismissed by academia as insignificant, is the site of powerful anxieties about cultural authority that continue to this day. In short, the middlebrow matters. These essays examine the prejudices and aspirations at work in the ‘battle of the brows’, and show that cultural value is always relative and situational. November 2011 256pp Hardback £50.00

"Confessional" Writing and the Twentieth-Century Literary Imagination

http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=469772

Far from being a unique, defining property of the confessional poets, confessionalism is a central trope of American literature. This book examines confessional writing not as a private, apolitical art, but rather one that demonstrates an engagement with the politics of literary influence, of gender relations, and of American culture more broadly. 224pp £50.00

The Great Gatsby/Tender is the Night

2nd edition

Nicolas Tredell, Tutor, Centre for Continuing Education, University of Sussex, UK

'Nicholas Tredell’s examination of The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night is a rare critical look at two of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most important texts, side by side. While the two novels have often been interpreted, rarely are they read in tandem, as this study does. Insightful, intelligent and thought-provoking, this study provides fascinating contexts within which new dimensions of both novels are brought to the fore, in light of each other.’ - Stephanie Smith, University of Florida, USA This stimulating study takes a fresh look at two of Fitzgerald’s major texts. Part I uses carefully selected short extracts for close textual analysis, while Part II examines the historical and literary contexts and key criticism. The volume is an ideal introductory guide for those who are studying Fitzgerald’s work for the first time. Contents: Introduction / PART I: ANALYSING ‘THE GREAT GATSBY’ AND ‘TENDER IS THE NIGHT’ / Beginnings / Society / Money / Gender / Trauma / Endings / PART II: THE CONTEXT AND THE CRITICS / F.

This revised, updated and expanded edition of an established text now explores the relationship between postmodern narrative and postmodern theory more closely, and concludes with a new chapter on J.M.

Modern Poetry and Ethnography Yeats, Frost, Warren, Heaney, and the Poet as Anthropologist Sean Heuston, Assistant Professor, Department of English, The Citadel, USA

This study maps a new approach to the works of W.B. Yeats, Robert Frost, Robert Penn Warren, and Seamus Heaney. Sean Heuston combines interdisciplinary analysis, specifically ethnography, with close reading, and in so doing argues provocatively for the intersection of modern poetry studies and contemporary ethnographic theory.  November 2011 208pp Hardback £52.00

Secret lovers of Vonnegut (and sci-fi) will use this book to defend their affections for an artist whose pop fame and pop forms dismay some critics.

This collection of essays traces the emergence of the Western poem from the standpoint of its collision with “American” otherness, particularly, the Latin American tradition.

Considers the Indian periodical press as a key forum for the production of nationalist rhetoric. It argues that between the 1870s and 1910, the press was the place in which the notion of ‘the public’ circulated and where an expansive middle class, and even larger reading audience, was persuaded into believing it had force.

Virgin and Veteran Readings of Ulysses Margot Norris, University of California, Irvine, USA

I believe its radically original focus on the extent and limits of the ‘virgin’ reader’s knowledge at any point in the text will influence a generation of scholars and teachers. Anyone writing on Ulysses, or working with students who are learning how to read Ulysses, would do well to keep it close at hand.’ - Patrick A. McCarthy, Professor of English, University of Miami and Editor of the James Joyce Literary Supplement Veteran Joyce scholar Margot Norris offers an innovative study of the processes of reading Ulysses as narrative and focuses on the unexplored implications, subplots, subtexts, hidden narratives, and narratology in one of the twentieth-century's most influential novels.

‘Every now and then a book comes along that changes a discipline: New World Orders in Contemporary Children’s Literature steps out of the groove of debates in Children’s Literature Studies and sets in motion a set of new ideas and areas for consideration...will set new agendas for those who produce and study children’s literature.’ - Professor Kimberley Reynolds, Newcastle University, UK  This book, now in paperback, demonstrates how contemporary children’s texts draw on utopian and dystopian tropes in their projections of possible futures, exploring ways in which children’s texts respond to social change and global politics.

Gendered Spaces in Argentine Women’s Literature Marta Sierra, Associate Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures, Kenyon College, USA

Addressing the issue of how gendered spatial relations impact the production of literary works, this book discusses gender implications of spatial categories: the notions of home and away, placement and displacement, dwelling and travel, location and dislocation, and the ‘quest for place’ in women’s writing from Argentina from 1920 to the present. Contents: Introduction: Gendered Spaces in Argentine Women's Literature / Displacing Domesticity: Cosmopolitanisms, Travel Writing and Narratives of the Home / Of 'Other Spaces:' Staging Repression in Griselda Gambaro and Diana Raznovich / Global Patagonia: Rewriting the National Space / Poetic Cross-Overs: The Paradoxical Spaces of Women's Poetry

Toward a Sociobiological Hermeneutic

‘Impressive in its breadth, its easy style, and its close readings, this compact book is an asset to those of us who teach the literature of war. Phillips’s command of her literature is impressive, her exposition readable and brisk.’ - Signs This text uses literature from World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq wars to argue that when a society labels certain human traits ‘feminine’, that society can more easily manipulate men to war. It also looks at the ways Western cultural attitudes toward sex fuel wars.

Bertrand Westphal, Faculté des Lettres et des Sciences Humaines, Université de Limoges, France and Robert Tally, Professor, Department of English, Texas State University, USA

Stephen Dobyns, Author of over 30 novels and poetry collections

‘Stephen Dobyns unpacks the essential kit of the trade, all the taken-for-granted tools which poets think with and work with to find out what their poems want to say: line breaks, how syllables behave, the hide-and-seek of metaphor, how a poem hangs on the page like a bird in flight.
