Literature and Science

The British Short Story

Charlotte Sleigh, Senior Lecturer in History of Science, University of Kent, UK

‘Charlotte Sleigh’s elegant book will appeal to general readers and scholars for its useful historical survey of literary works about science and its engaging analysis of literary responses to science. I look forward to including it as a foundational text in my university courses.’ - Carol Colatrella, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA ‘...an erudite and eloquent introduction to a fascinating field.’ - P.D. Smith, The Guardian

Emma Liggins, Lecturer in Literature, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, Andrew Maunder, Principal Lecturer in Literature, University of Hertfordshire, UK and Ruth Robbins, Head of School of Cultural Studies, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

The short story remains a crucial - if neglected - part of British literary heritage. This accessible and upto-date critical overview maps out the main strands and figures that shaped the British short story and novella from the 1850s to the present. It offers new readings of both classic and forgotten texts in a clear, jargon-free way. November 2010 320pp Hardback £49.50 Paperback £16.99

Living Poetry Reading Poems from Shakespeare to Don Paterson William Hutchings, formerly Senior Lecturer in English Literature, and formerly Director, Centre for Excellence in Enquiry-Based Learning, University of Manchester, 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 growing field of literature and science is for the first time given a fully theorized overview. Using case studies from a three hundred year history, Sleigh focuses on literary form and argues that novels did not just reflect or inform areas of science, but were part of a broader, ongoing cultural negotiation about how to read things.

Poetry

Critical Editions and Texts

The Ultimate Guide Richard Bradford, Research Professor of English, University of Ulster, UK

‘Bradford has produced a superb, accessible introduction to an impressively sweeping range of poetic techniques and historical contexts. Impressive, useful and affordable, this book will be a boon for any newcomer who wishes to grapple with the daunting challenge of interpreting historical and contemporary poetry - it will work as great revision for experienced readers too.’ - Kevin De Ornellas, Ulster University, UK

Foreword by Carol Ann Duffy

Richard Bradford’s introduction to poetry combines definitions, context and literary theory to addresses and answer the slippery question ‘What is poetry?’. 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.

Francis Turner Palgrave’s The Golden Treasury is the most popular anthology of English poetry ever published. To mark the 150th anniversary of its original publication, this facsimile reproduction of the 1861 edition features a new foreword from Carol Ann Duffy which celebrates its place in the hearts of poetry lovers worldwide.

'The book's overall presentation of Poe's 'mysteries' makes it an indispensable resource for scholars and critics. Moreover, unlike John T. Irwin's brilliant but often idiosyncratic criticism of Poe's detective fiction in The Mystery to a Solution (1994), Kopley's book is couched in a jargon-free style that will help to make it useful for teachers and accessible for students of all stripes and levels.' - Review 19 Contents: Formal Considerations of the Dupin Tales / ‘The Murders in the Rue Morgue’ and The Philadelphia Saturday News / ‘The Mystery of Marie Rogêt’ and ‘Various Newspaper Files’ / ‘The Purloined Letter’ and Death-Bed Confessions / Biographical Considerations of the Dupin Tales September 2011 272pp Paperback £17.99

Why Shakespeare?

Shakespeare

‘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 twenty-first century.’ - Rob Maslen, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Glasgow, UK In this groundbreaking book, one of the most original and compelling voices in contemporary Shakespeare criticism undertakes a detailed study of the extraordinary comedies Shakespeare wrote during his first decade as a dramatist. Lively and readable, Ryan lets each play speak for itself, transforming our understanding of Shakespearean comedy. April 2009 Hardback Paperback

‘An example of that rare beast, genuinely popular literary criticism...The book is both a fascinating guide to the folk tale sources of the plays, and, of all things, a most accessible and original post-structuralist critique.’ - Sean McEvoy, The Professional Journal of the National Association for the Teaching of English Why is Shakespeare as highly regarded now as he ever has been? This book’s answer to this question counters claims that Shakespeare’s iconic status is no more than an accident of history. The plays, Belsey argues, entice us into a world we recognize by retelling traditional fairy tales with a difference, each chapter providing a detailed reading. April 2007 Hardback Paperback

Wonder in Shakespeare

Shakespearean Tragedy

Adam Max Cohen, earned his PhD from the University of Virginia, USA, formerly Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts, USA

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.

4th edition

This centenary edition of A.C. Bradley’s seminal Shakespearean Tragedy includes a new Introduction by Robert Shaughnessy which places Bradley’s work in the context of its time, summarizes the argumentative thrust of the book, outlines the critical debates that have followed its publication and prompts readers to engage with the work itself.

Shakespeare’s Great Stage of Fools Robert H. Bell, Frederick Latimer Wells Professor of English, Williams College, USA

This lively, lucid book undertakes a detailed and provocative study of Shakespeare’s fascination with clowns, fools, and fooling. Through close reading of plays over the whole course of Shakespeare’s theatrical career, Bell highlights the fun, wit, insights, and mysteries of some of Shakespeare’s most vibrant and often vexing figures.

The Artistic Links Between William Shakespeare and Sir Thomas More Radically Different Richards Charles A. Hallett, Emeritus Professor of English, Fordham University, USA; Visiting Scholar, Dartmouth College, USA and Elaine S. Hallett, received a B.A. in Renaissance Drama from The New School, USA

The Halletts’ investigation differs from anything that has been written about the relationship between Thomas More and William Shakespeare in that it approaches the subject from a dramaturgical point of view. This book defines, in specific terms, what Shakespeare learned from his study of More’s History September 2011 304pp Hardback £55.00

Shakespeare Studies Today Romanticism Lost

Shakespeare and His Contemporaries Jonathan Hart, Director of Comparative Literature and Professor of English, University of Alberta, Canada

Edward Pechter, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Concordia University, USA; Adjunct Professor of English, University of Victoria, Canada

The Romantics invented Shakespeare studies, and in losing contact with our origins, we have not been able to develop an adequate alternative foundation on which to build our work. This book asserts that among Shakespeareans at present, the level of conviction required to sustain a healthy critical practice is problematically if not dangerously low, and the qualities which the Romantics valued in an engagement with Shakespeare are either ignored these days or fundamentally misunderstood.

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 cultural-materialist criticism beyond question.’ - Kiernan Ryan, Royal Holloway University of London, UK Radical Tragedy is a landmark study of the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and a classic of cultural materialist thought.

‘While Danner gives convincing accounts of individual poems, the revisionary power of his book lies in its making Edmund Spenser’s Complaints central to the understanding of his life...It marks an important shift in Spenserian biography.’ - William Oram, Smith College, USA Edmund Spenser’s censored attacks on Lord Burghley (Elizabeth I’s powerful first minister) serve as the basis for a reassessment of the poet’s midcareer, challenging the dates of canonical texts, the social and personal contexts for scandalous topical allegories, and the new historicist portrait of Spenser’s ‘worship’ of power and state ideology.

Metaphor and Shakespearean Drama Unchaste Signification Maria Franziska Fahey, Chair of English, Friends Seminary, USA

‘This intelligent and penetrating book revisits the study of metaphor in Shakespeare, reading metaphor in the plays neither as imagery or ornament but instead as an unpredictable form of social action, powerful but not always positive, that can infiltrate speech communities by stealth and authorize unpredictable or irrational action. Bringing to light this performative dimension of metaphor, Fahey offers fresh readings of Shakespeare’s plays.’ Lynne Magnusson, University of Toronto, Canada August 2011 Hardback

Nineteenth Century Major Lives and Letters

Jewish Representation in British Literature 1780–1840 After Shylock Michael Scrivener, Professor of English, Wayne State University, USA (he has published books on Percy Shelley -Radical Shelley)

Dante and Italy in British Romanticism Edited by Frederick Burwick, Professor Emeritus of English, University of California, Los Angeles, USA and Paul Douglass, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, San Jose State University, USA

Describing Jewish representation by Jews and Gentiles in the British Romantic era from the Old Bailey courtroom and popular songs to novels, poetry, and political pamphlets, Scrivener integrates popular culture with belletristic writing to explore the wildly varying treatments of stereotypical Jewish figures.

From the artistic practice of improvization to the politics of nationalism, the essays in this volume break new ground and significantly extend our understanding of the relations between British and Italian culture in its analysis of the reception of Dante and Italian literature in British Romanticism.

‘...fills a major gap in the study of the literary fairy tale, and it fills the gap extremely well. Sumpter has a profound understanding and comprehensive knowledge of the periodical fairy tales published in the latter part of the nineteenth century...Her work is definitely unique and will make a major contribution to our knowledge about the social history of the fairy tale.’ Professor Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota, USA This book, now with a new preface, offers a new history of the fairy tale, revealing the creative role of periodical publication in shaping this genre. Sumpter explores the fairy tale’s reinvention for (and by) diverse readerships in unexpected contexts, including debates over evolution, colonialism, socialism, gender and sexuality and decadence.

Byron and the Politics of Freedom and Terror

The Development of Byron’s Philosophy of Knowledge Certain in Uncertainty Emily A. Bernhard Jackson, Assistant Professor of English, University of Arkansas, USA

Edited by Matthew J. A. Green, Associate Professor of Modern English Literature, University of Nottingham, UK and Piya Pal-Lapinski, Associate Professor of English, Bowling Green State University, USA

'As a record of philosophical work done in the course of Byron’s poetic career...Bernhard Jackson’s book succeeds in reaffirming the exuberance of the poet’s misgivings.’ - Times Literary Supplement

This interdisciplinary collection explores the divergence or convergence of freedom and terror in a range of Byron’s works. Challenging the binary opposition of historicism and critical theory, it combines topical debates in a manner that is sensitive both to the circumstances of their emergence and to their relevance for the twentyfirst century.

Middlebrow Literary Cultures

Celebrating Katherine Mansfield

The Battle of the Brows, 1920-1960

A Centenary Volume of Essays

Edited by Erica Brown, Associate Lecturer 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.

It greatly enriches our understanding of middlebrow cultural production by its attention to journalism and periodical culture, anthologies and education, politics and colonial contexts.

In light of his unusual life experience and enthusiasm for the study of languages, Zettersten finds in Tolkein’s fiction the same animating passions that drove that great author as a youth, a soldier, a linguist, and an Oxford Don.

Providing an extensive reassessment of dominant and recurring themes in Ballard’s writing, including historical violence, pornography, post 9/11 politics, and urban space, this book also engages with Ballard’s ‘late’ modernism; his experimentation with style and form; and his sustained interests in psychology and psychopathology.

This book argues that many of the midtwentieth century’s significant novelists were united by a desire to return the increasingly interior novel to ethical engagement. They did not seek morality in society, politics or the individual will, but sought to unveil a transcendent Good by using techniques drawn from the canon of mystical literature

HIGHLIGHT Death in a Cold Climate A Guide to Scandinavian Crime Fiction Barry Forshaw, Writer and Journalist specialising in crime fiction and cinema

Barry Forshaw, the UK’s principal crime fiction expert, presents a celebration and analysis of the Scandinavian crime genre; from Sjöwall and Wahlöö’s Martin Beck series, through Henning Mankell’s Wallander, to Stieg Larsson’s demolition of the Swedish Social Democratic ideal in the publishing phenomenon The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. ‘Extensive, penetrating and intelligently written, Barry Forshaw’s book is the most fulfilling work on the strange genre of Nordic Noir I have ever come upon. As a Swede I’m surprised and impressed by the fact that a foreigner could find his way so close to our heart of darkness.’ - Håkan Nesser ‘Death in a Cold Climate is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the fictional underbelly of the Nordic psyche, whose popularity has become the publishing sensation of the century. Perceptive, witty and awesomely knowledgeable, Barry Forshaw knows more about Scandinavian crime fiction than the Scandinavians themselves.’ - Andrew Taylor ‘With customary depth and precision, Forshaw gets under the skin of this celebrated genre, uncovering many of its secrets and riches. Like its subjects, this book is hard to put down, and will undoubtedly be returned to time and again.’ - Steven Peacock ‘A fascinating, comprehensive and very enjoyable overview of the publishing phenomenon that is Nordic noir, placing it in a cultural and historical context, with insightful contributions from writers, translators and editors – an essential reading guide for lovers of the crime genre.’ - Laura Wilson

‘Clare Barker’s Exceptional Children is a very timely and distinctive book, which makes a strong ethical argument for a critical negotiation of postcolonial studies and disability studies through some illuminating readings of the figure of the child in postcolonial fiction.’ - Stephen Morton, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Southampton,UK This book is the first study of disability in postcolonial fiction. Focusing on canonical novels, it explores the metaphorical functions and material presence of disabled child characters. Barker argues that progressive disability politics emerge from postcolonial concerns, and establishes dialogues between postcolonialism and disability studies.

Postcolonial Writers in the Global Literary Marketplace Sarah Brouillette, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Canada

‘This is a first-rate, controversial book by a young and alert scholar working at the cutting edge of a fast evolving field. Brouillette’s writing is cogent and original. It covers acres of ground while drawing on incisive case studies. It is graceful, provocative and interesting. It is the real McCoy.’ Robert Fraser, The Open University, UK ‘...the boldness and quality of her readings alone should make us sit up and pay attention.’ - Stefan Helgesson, Safundi Combining analysis with detailed accounts of authors’ careers and the global trade in literature, this book, now in paperback and with a new Preface, assesses how postcolonial writers respond to their own reception and niche positioning, parading their exotic otherness to metropolitan audiences, within a global marketplace.

Urban Space in Contemporary Egyptian Literature Portraits of Cairo Mara Naaman, Assistant Professor of Arabic and Comparative Literature, Williams College, USA

An examination of how the space of the downtown served dual purposes as both a symbol of colonial influence and capital in Egypt, as well as a staging ground for the demonstrations of the Egyptian nationalist movement.

Mahmoud Omidsalar, Librarian, UCLA, USA, he received a PhD from Berkeley, USA

This book considers some of the Western interpretations of The Shahnameh - Iran’s national epic, and argues that these interpretations are not only methodologically flawed, but are also more revealing of Western concerns and anxieties about Iran than they are about the Shahnameh.

America in An Arab Mirror Images of America in Arabic Travel Literature, 1668 to 9/11 and Beyond Edited by Kamal Abdel-Malek, Assistant Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Alberta in Toronto, Canada and Mouna El Kahla, Teacher of Arabic, University of Wollongong, Australia

‘An instructive collection in a globalizing world.’ Booklist This distinguished anthology presents for the first time in English travel essays by Arabic writers who have visited America in the second half of the century. The writers hail from a variety of viewpoints, regions, and backgrounds, so their descriptions of America differently engage and revise Arab pre-conceptions of Americans and the West.

Furthering the scholarship on writers and artists as diverse as Lord Byron, Edvard Munch, Sylvia Plath, and Jorge Luis Borges, Zeng probes the semiotics of exile. In artistic traditions the world over, exile exerts a potent and complex mythmaking power - whether it is manifest as a geographical dislocation or as a sense of cultural or psychological alienation.

Contemporary Children’s Literature and Film Engaging with Theory Edited by Kerry Mallan, Professor, School of Cultural and Language Studies in Education, Queensland University of Technology, Australia and Clare Bradford, Professor of Literary Studies, Deakin University, Australia

‘...makes theory work in a practical, productive, and even (dare I say it), pleasurable manner. Students, and the rest of us, should benefit hugely.’ - David Rudd, Professor of Children’s Literature, University of Bolton, UK Bringing together leading and emerging scholars, this book argues for the significance of theory for reading texts written and produced for young people. Integrating perspectives from across feminism, ecocriticism, postcolonialism and poststructuralism, it demonstrates how these inform approaches to a range of contemporary literature and film.

Critical Approaches to Children’s Literature Series Editors: Kerry Mallan and Clare Bradford

Michelle J. Smith, Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Melbourne, Australia

While the gender and age of the girl may seem to remove her from any significant contribution to empire, this book provides both a new perspective on familiar girls’ literature, and the first detailed examination of lesser-known fiction relating the emergence of fictional girl adventurers, castaways and ‘ripping’ schoolgirls to the British Empire.

‘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. It draws attention to the way narrative fictions for children are implicated in shaping current thinking and aspirations for the future, and relates them to pressing issues and current political and philosophical debates. Crucially, this is an energising, optimistic and courageous book by four fine scholars; it 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. The book argues that children’s texts are crucially implicated in shaping the values of their readers. July 2011 Paperback

Catherine L. Belcher, Assistant Professor of Language and Culture in Education, Loyola Marymount University, USA and Becky Herr Stephenson, Postdoctoral Researcher, Humanities Research Institute, University of California, Irvine, USA

‘Sashi Nair brings a theoretically deft hand to the literature of lesbian modernity. In persuasive, readable, and scholarly prose, Public Address, Secrecy, and the Sapphic Modernist brings recent queer theoretical work on affect and normativity into dialogue with concepts of public, private, and counter-publics through artful close readings and rigorous archival work. A strong contribution to the field.’ - Deborah Cohler, Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies, San Francisco State University, USA Novels by significant Modernist authors can be described as romans à clef, providing insight into restrictions governing the representation of female homosexuality in the early twentieth century. Nair argues that key novels of the period represented same-sex desire through the encryption of personal references directed towards coterie audiences. November 2011 240pp Hardback £50.00

The History of British Women’s Writing, 1610–1690

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

Volume Three

Volume Four Edited by Mihoko Suzuki, Professor of English/Director of Graduate Studies, University of Miami, USA

Edited by Ros Ballaster, Fellow in English, Mansfield College, University of Oxford, 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.

Geocriticism

Modernism and Style

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

Geocriticism provides a theoretical foundation and a critical exploration of geocriticism, an interdisciplinary approach to understanding literature in relation to space and place.

‘This book is an ambitious engagement with a major topic of psychological and cultural importance. Its aims are wide-ranging, covering key writers and topics between the early modern period and our own time. Using often sophisticated theoretical approaches, the contributors have important arguments to make both in terms of the historical analysis of melancholia and of melancholic texts and tendencies, and of the continuity between historical figures and objects and such present day preoccupations as depression, loss and nostalgia. The result is a rich mix of approaches and a convincingly nuanced series of distinctions in our experience and understanding of the merry and the melancholic.’ - Allan Ingram, Professor of English, University of Northumbria, UK This collection analyzes philosophical, psychoanalytic and aesthetic contexts of the discourse of melancholia in British and postcolonial literature and culture and seeks to trace the multi-faceted phenomenon of melancholia from the early modern period to the present. Texts discussed range from Shakespeare and Milton to Coetzee and Barker.

Reading Communities from Salons to Cyberspace Edited by DeNel Rehberg Sedo, Associate Professor, Department of Communication, Mount State Vincent University, USA

‘This book makes an original and thought provoking contribution to scholarship in the history of reading, and highlights the ongoing research on reading groups taking place from a range of academic fields across the world. The editor’s judicious selection of chapters demonstrates the disparate practices of readers in a range of social contexts, and powerfully reminds us that reading is as much a shared as an individual practice.’ - Shafquat Towheed, Lecturer in English, The Open University, UK August 2011 232pp 1 map and 4 b/w photographs Hardback £50.00

‘This consequential volume extends our understanding of reading in time and space. Importantly, the book takes us into the colonial and postcolonial worlds, a dimension generally lacking in scholarship on histories of reading. The book offers a dazzling array of case studies... This book considerably extends the frontiers of scholarship on histories of reading, print culture and book history.
