Hanning, Professor Emeritus of English, Columbia University, USA and Bonnie Wheeler, Professor of English, Southern Methodist University, USA

‘There is a tendency to assume that anything that happened in history is not funny. Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog performs the vital service of showing that the Middle Ages can be fun, and, as a side effect, reminding us that people were as capable of laughing in the fourteenth century as we are today...maybe more so.’ - Terry Jones, Actor and Comedian This text presents all of the most memorable posts of the medievalist internet phenomenon ‘Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog‘, along with essays on the genesis of the blog itself, the role of blogs in medieval scholarship, and the unique pleasures of studying a time period full of plagues, schisms, and assizes.

The Dancing of the title was in Shakespeare’s mind as he wrote: a physical and active imagination. This book explores the operation of the playwright’s creative mind in his most frequently performed texts and encourages readers to seek out the performance possibilities of the works for themselves. Moving beyond the study of what has happened on stage in a number of specific productions, John Russell Brown examines the entire theatrical event in which performance occurs, as well as the meeting and interaction of actors and audience, and the social and cultural contexts of the plays’ reception in the past and present.

Radical Tragedy Religion, Ideology and Power in the Drama of Shakespeare and his Contemporaries 3rd Reissued edition

The Renaissance A Sourcebook Edited by Lena Cowen Orlin, Professor of English, Georgetown University, USA ‘Professor Orlin possesses an enviable intellectual sharpness and breadth, an understanding of her audience, and a scholarly acumen…I find it impossible to imagine who could fail to learn from this volume.’ - Professor Andrew Hadfield, University of Sussex, UK

Jonathan Dollimore, formerly Professor of English, University of York, UK

Radical Tragedy ranks among the necessary critical interventions of our time.’ - From the Foreword by Terry Eagleton ‘Prefaced by a powerful, provocative essay that brings its argument bang up to date, this splendid new edition of Radical Tragedy puts its status as a classic of culturalmaterialist criticism beyond question.’ - Kiernan Ryan, Royal Holloway University of London, UK ‘A welcome new edition of a path-breaking book complete with a brilliantly incisive and thought-provoking Introduction that will enthuse a new generation of students.’ - John Drakakis, University of Stirling, UK Radical Tragedy is a landmark study of the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and a classic of cultural materialist thought. The reissued third edition features a candid and inspiring new Preface by the author in which he explains his reasons for excluding Othello from his original discussion.

EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY LITERATURE

The Age of Hypochondria Interpreting Romantic Health and Illness George C. Grinnell, Assistant Professor, University of British Columbia Okanagan, Canada

‘The Age of Hypochondria demonstrates sound scholarship, highly competent knowledge of its period, and a facile use of current theories of interpretation. Its choice of subject and authors treated will give it a distinct and original place among the roster of good books on Romantic medicine published in recent years.’ - Hermione de Almeida, Pauline Walter Chair in Comparative Literature, University of Tulsa, USA Examining the ways in which hypochondria forms both a malady and a metaphor for a range of British Romantic writers, Grinnell contends that this is not one illness amongst many, but a disorder of the very ability to distinguish between illness and health, a malady of interpretation that mediates a broad spectrum of pressing cultural questions. Contents: Introduction: Interpreting Romantic Hypochondria / Occupation Hazard: Thomas Beddoes and the ‘great dark threat’ of Romantic Medicine / Body Dysmorphic Disorder: The Self-Anatomy of Coleridge’s Aesthetics / Phantom Memory: Nation and the Absent Body of Idealism in Mary Shelley’s The Last Man / Multiple Personality: De Quincey’s Political Economies of Infirmity / Performance Anxiety: Illness and The History of Mary Prince / Coda / Notes / Bibliography May 2010 Hardback

Romanticism

This ground-breaking collection of essays presents a new ‘bookish’ literary history, which situates questions about books at the intersection of a range of debates about the role of authors and readers, the organization of knowledge, the vogue for collecting, and the impact of overlapping technologies of writing and shifting generic boundaries.

A wide-ranging collection of the key contextual documents which inform the Romantic period. It includes material on fiercely debated areas such as the French Revolution, women, the slave trade, science and religion. Documents are supported by substantial editorial material, drawing connections to the major Romantic texts.

Angela Wright assembles some of the most important critical writings about Romantic Gothic literature since its inception to the present day. This guide begins by charting the moral and political panic provoked by Gothic’s increasing popularity in the 1790s, and then examines the genre’s recuperation as a serious area of literary study. 192pp £45.00 £14.99

What is buried in the crypts of the Gothic? Building on psychoanalytic research on haunting, cryptonymy and melancholy, as well as on French philosophies of language, this book explores how haunting is not just a Gothic narrative device but the symptom of an impossibility of representation and of an irreparable loss at the heart of language.

This revised edition of The Handbook of the Gothic contains over one hundred entries on Gothic writers, themes, terms, concepts, contexts and locations, featuring new entries on writers including Stephen King and Wilkie Collins, new genres and a new Preface which situates the handbook within current studies of the Gothic.

Identity and Cultural Memory in the Fiction of A.S. Byatt Knitting the Net of Culture Lena Steveker, Assistant Professor of British Literary and Cultural Studies, Saarland University, Germany

Eli Park Sorensen, Research Fellow, University of Cambridge, UK

‘This is an engaging and truly thoughtful book. It is poised and ambitious, both in its bold and subtle handling of the literary texts on which it centres and in its overarching arguments. Sorensen’s reconsideration of the place of the literary in postcolonial studies seems very timely, as regards not only the evolution of postcolonial studies but the future of literary studies more widely.’ - Nicholas Harrison, King’s College London, University of London, UK Critics have argued that the field of postcolonial studies has become melancholic due to its institutionalization in recent years. This book identifies some limits of postcolonial studies and suggests ways of coming to terms with this issue via a renewed engagement with the literary dimension in the postcolonial text.

Migration Literature and Hybridity

Religion in Literature and Film in South Asia

The Different Speeds of Transcultural Change Sten Pultz Moslund, Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Southern Denmark

Beckett’s bilingual œuvre has been approached from many angles, most of which stress its autonomy from understandings of Irishness emerging from the Irish Literary Revival.

Violence, Politics and Textual Interventions in Northern Ireland Peter Mahon, Lecturer in English, University of British Columbia, Canada

‘Peter Mahon’s book is both timely and original, with a good sense of the vital significance of literature in Irish history. It is a trenchant scholarly intervention but will also interest a wide range of readers in both Ireland and Britain. I expect the book to become a model of the analysis of the cultural effects of political violence.’ - Luke Thurston, Aberystwyth University, UK Using the work of René Girard and Jacques Lacan, Mahon develops a new theoretical framework for reading the dynamic interplay of textuality, sexuality, violence, politics, reciprocity and the body in key literary and cinematic texts that engage with the period of political and social unrest in Northern Ireland known as the ‘Troubles’ (19681998).

The Female Gothic New Directions Edited by Diana Wallace, Reader in English and Andrew Smith, Professor of English Studies, both at University of Glamorgan, UK

William Gray, Reader in Literary History and Hermeneutics, University of Chichester, UK

‘Carefully researched and lucidly written, Fantasy, Myth and the Measure of Truth is a valuable addition to scholarship on fantasy, fairy tales, and the long reach of Romanticism.’ - Donald Haase, Professor of German, Wayne State University, USA; editor of Marvels and Tales: Journal of Fairy Tale Studies and The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Folktales and Fairy Tales

This rich and varied collection of essays makes a timely contribution to critical debates about the Female Gothic, a popular but contested area of literary studies. The contributors revisit key Gothic themes - gender, race, the body, monstrosity, metaphor, motherhood and nationality - to open up new critical directions.

This book, now in paperback, shows how the fantasy tradition culminating in Pullman’s His Dark Materials inherits the Romantic quest to transpose spiritual and moral values, once the prerogrative of organized religion, into new myths. Wary of escapist fantasy, it explores how stories can generate a new vision.

The History of British Women’s Writing, 1500–1610 Volume Two Edited by Caroline Bicks, Associate Professor of English, Boston College, USA and Jennifer Summit, Associate Professor of English, Stanford University, USA

This volume rethinks the history of women’s writing and literary history itself.

The History of British Women’s Writing, 1690–1750

Volume Three

Volume Four

Edited by Mihoko Suzuki, Professor of English and Director of Graduate Studies, Miami University, USA

Edited by Rosalind Ballaster, Fellow in English, Mansfield College, Oxford University, UK

During the seventeenth century, in response to political and social upheavals such as the English Civil Wars, women produced writings in both manuscript and print. This volume represents recent scholarship that has uncovered new texts as well as introduced new paradigms to further our understanding of women’s literary history during this period.

This volume charts the most significant changes for a literary history of women in a period that saw the beginnings of a discourse of ‘enlightened feminism’. It reveals that women engaged in forms old and new, seeking to shape and transform the culture of letters rather than simply reflect or respond to the work of their male contemporaries.

GENDER/WOMEN’S WRITING

The History of British Women’s Writing, 1750–1830

British Women Writers of the Romantic Period

Volume Five

An Anthology of their Literary Criticism

Edited by Jacqueline Labbe, University of Warwick, UK

This period witnessed the first full flowering of women’s writing in Britain. The last twentyfive years of scholarship and textual recovery overturned the convention that women wrote un-ambitious texts on ‘feminine’ concerns like the family and the home. This text demonstrates that an English literary history that ignores women writers is inadequate.

Queer Theories explores and aggressively expands the provocative new field of sexual identity studies. It covers the history of the terms ‘gay’ and ‘lesbian’ as identity categories, the reclamation of the word ‘queer’ as a term of radical self-identification, and the recent challenges to sexual identity studies posed by transgender and bisexual theories. Donald E.

When Freud revised his view of the drives, he was living under the shadow of death and the threat of biological and cultural genocide. Like the early twentieth century, our times are marked by massive geopolitical trauma and shifts in technological, epistemic and sexualrepresentational practices. This book argues for the renewed relevance of the Freudian theory of drives through a variety of works ranging from cinema and literature to metapsychology and cultural theory. After presenting Freud’s successive configurations of the drive in the form of a guide, ‘illustrated’ with reference to popular films, Teresa De Lauretis discusses two instances of philosophicalpolitical contestation: Foucault’s critique of Freud’s ‘stubborn drive’, which served as foundation for the notion of social construction, and Laplanche’s critique of Freud’s biologism. The last two chapters trace the figural inscription of the death drive through close readings of Djuna Barnes’s high-modernist novel Nightwood (1936) and David Cronenberg’s postmodern film eXistenZ (1999).

‘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. Keats’s childhood, school years and medical career are exceptionally well done, and among many highlights the account of Keats’s plays, letters, and Endymion are especially rewarding.’ - Nicholas Roe, University of St. Andrews, UK At the heart of this ‘Literary Life’ are 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.
