The growing field of literature and science is for the first time given a fully theorized overview.

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.

Why Shakespeare? Catherine Belsey, University of Wales, UK

'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

Shakespeare

Extramural Shakespeare Denise Albanese, Associate Professor of English and Cultural Studies, George Mason University, USA

The Shakespeare Handbooks are student-friendly introductory guides which offer a new approach to understanding Shakespeare’s plays in performance.

This study argues that Shakespeare can now be understood as part of public culture. Thanks to the emergence of mass education in the twentieth century, Albanese argues that Shakespeare has become a shared property, despite the depiction of his texts as ‘elite’ cultural objects in the film industry.

Radical Tragedy

Religion, Ideology and Power in the Drama of Shakespeare and his Contemporaries Reissued 3rd edition Jonathan Dollimore, formerly University of York, UK

‘Some critical studies are full of insight, but not many of them are necessary. 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 ‘A welcome edition of a path-breaking book complete with a brilliantly incisive and thoughtprovoking Introduction that will enthuse a new generation of students. With an iconoclastic energy all too rare in academic circles, Dollimore fearlessly revalues his own project, and poses questions central to the larger critical, cultural and philosophical debates within English Studies, to which Radical Tragedy continues to make a major scholarly contribution.’ - 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.

Edited by James Daybell, Reader in Early Modern British History and Peter Hinds, Senior Lecturer in English, both at University of Plymouth, UK

Elizabeth Clarke, Reader in English, Warwick University, UK

This book explores the physicality and surrounding social practices of texts as a new and valuable way of reading and decoding early modern literature.

The Song of Songs, with its highly sexual imagery, was very popular in seventeenth-century England in commentary and paraphrase. This book charts the fascination with the mystical marriage, its implication in the various political conflicts of the seventeenth century, and its appeal to seventeenth-century writers, particularly women.

Women, Beauty and Power in Early Modern England

Race and Rhetoric in the Renaissance

A Feminist Literary History

Barbarian Errors

Edith Snook, Associate Professor, Department of English, University of New Brunswick, Canada

Ian Smith, Associate Professor of English, Lafayette College, USA

Divided into three sections on cosmetics, clothes and hairstyling, this book explores how early modern women regarded beauty culture and in what ways skin, clothes and hair could be used to represent racial, class and gender identities, and to convey political, religious and philosophical ideals.

This book argues that the sixteenth-century preoccupation with rehabilitating English tells the larger story of an anxious nation redirecting attention away from its own marginal, minority status by racially scapegoating the ‘barbarous’ African.

Contents: Introduction / PART ONE: COSMETICS / 'The Beautifying Part of Physic': Women's Cosmetic Practices in Early Modern England / 'Soveraigne Receipts,' Fair Beauty, and Race in Stuart England / PART TWO: CLOTHES / The Greatness in Good Clothes: Fashioning Subjectivity in Mary Wroth's Urania and Margaret Spencer's Account Book / What Not to Wear: Children's Clothes and the Maternal Advice of Elizabeth Jocelin and Brilliana, Lady Harley / PART THREE: HAIR / The Culture of the Head: Hair in Mary Wroth's Urania and Margaret Cavendish's 'Assaulted and Pursued Chastity' / An 'absolute mistress of her self': Anne Clifford and the Luxury of Hair / Conclusion / Index

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

The Victorians in the Twenty-First Century, 19992009 Ann Heilmann, Professor of English, University of Hull, UK and Mark Llewellyn, Senior Lecturer, University of Liverpool, UK

Louisa Hadley, Tutor in English Literature, University of Edinburgh, UK

'The value of NeoVictorian Fiction and Historical Narrative: The Victorians and Us lies in its attentiveness to neo-Victorianism within the larger field of heritage debates from the Thatcherite 1980s onwards, and also the wider cultural relevance of the core questions asked here: ‘Why the Victorians? Why Now?’ Through canonical neo-Victorian texts by A. S. Byatt, Michele Roberts, Graham Swfit and Sarah Waters but also more recent interventions like Julian Barnes’s Arthur& George and popular genre fiction like Colin Dexter’s Morse mystery The Wench is Dead, Hadley makes a sound case for contemporary writers’ sophistication in their exploration of the need to transform the Victorians rather than merely mimic or pastiche them.' - Dr Mark Llewellyn, University of Liverpool, UK; Consultant Editor to Neo-Victorian Studies Placing the popular genre of neo-Victorian fiction within the context of the contemporary cultural fascination with the Victorians, this book argues that these novels are distinguished by a commitment to historical specificity and understands them within their contemporary context and the context of Victorian historical and literary narratives.

Imagining Iraq

Michael Thurston, Associate Professor of English, Smith College, USA

Literature in English and the Iraq Invasion

Through a series of contextualized close readings, this study traces the cultural work performed by modern deployments of the classical narrative of the ‘underworld descent.’

Suman Gupta, Senior Lecturer in Literature, The Open University, UK

‘Suman Gupta’s Imagining Iraq is brilliantly written, engaging, and authoritative. With a depth and tightness of focus that is really unusual, this book should be given serious attention by academics and students.’ - Jago Morrison, Senior Lecturer in English, Brunel University, UK 'An impressively thorough, theoretically sophisticated, thought-provoking account of the literature - poetry, fiction, drama, blogging - of the invasion of Iraq. The focus throughout is on what this writing tells us about the production, circulation and reception of literature in general, as well as about current notions of literary character and value.' - Zachary Leader, Professor of English Literature, Roehampton University, UK In the run-up to, during and after the invasion of Iraq a large number of literary texts addressing that context were produced, circulated and viewed as taking a position for or against the invasion, or contributing political insights. This book provides an in-depth survey of such texts to examine what they reveal about the condition of literature.

‘With an impressive line-up of experts in the field...the collection embarks on the very timely project to not only offer close, theoryinformed readings of significant travelogues, but to also revisit the use and usefulness of paradigms like ‘the postcolonial’, ‘globalization’, ‘transculturation’, or ‘the contact zone’, with which these travel texts are usually greeted and treated.’ - Julia Kuehn, Assistant Professor of English, University of Hong Kong With its inclusion of original essays challenging the view of travel writing as a Eurocentric genre, this book will stand as a benchmark study of future inquiries in the field. It will revitalize the critical debate, sparking a much needed rethinking of a vibrant and highly popular but also volatile genre that has seen many changes in recent years.

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, Department of English & Creative Writing, 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).

Edited by Karin Lesnik-Oberstein, Senior Lecturer in English, American and Children’s Literature, University of Reading, UK and Director, ‘Centre for International Research in Childhood: Literature, Culture, Media’ (CIRCL)

Bringing together leading and emerging scholars, this book argues for the significance of theory for reading texts written and produced for young people.

Fantasy, Myth and the Measure of Truth Tales of Pullman, Lewis, Tolkien, MacDonald and Hoffmann William Gray, Reader in Literary History and Hermeneutics, University of Chichester, UK

‘In this fascinating study, William Gray mines the relationship between German Romanticism and British fantasy literature from the eighteenth century to the present...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 ‘William Gray’s book is a truly critical work, in the best sense: an examination of fantasy literature that moves beyond literary history and taxonomy, without resorting to pure abstraction... Gray has read his texts with scrupulous care, with a sharp, philosophically oriented intelligence.’ Paul Tankard, Times Higher Education 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. August 2010 Paperback

Manipulating Masculinity War and Gender in Modern British and American Literature Kathy J. Phillips, Professor of English, University of Hawai’i, USA

‘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 ‘Phillips draws on Michael Foucault in her deft analysis of artificial social constructs of gender, and she relies primarily on a wide variety of wellknown imaginative literature - war novels, plays, poetry...her textual analysis remains careful and subtle throughout. This book offers thoughtful cultural context for considering contemporary warfare and gender construction.’ - Choice 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. October 2010 Paperback

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.

Towards a New Literary Humanism Edited by Andrew Mousley, Senior Lecturer in English, De Montfort University, UK

‘This book stands out as an intervention in postpoststructuralist debates, alongside the ‘new aesthetics’, ‘singularities’, the ‘new ethics’, and other efforts to formulate the critical trajectories of the new millennium, and will have a significant impact on the way literary studies will shape its theoretical debates in the near future.’ - Tim Woods, Professor in English and American Studies, Aberystwyth University, UK Literature cultivates ‘deep selves’ for whom books matter because they take over from religion fundamental questions about the meaning of existence. This volume embraces and questions this perspective, whilst also developing a ‘new humanist’ critical vocabulary which specifies, and therefore opens to debate, the human significance of literature.

Literary theory

Intersections in Christianity and Critical Theory Edited by Cassandra Falke, Assistant Professor of English, East Texas Baptist University, USA

‘This book is a timely and much-needed intervention in the study of Christian theology and critical theory. It represents the best of Christian reflection on contemporary movements in critical theory, as well as on the roots of the discipline itself in theological tradition. The contributors analyze ethical criticism, animal rights discourse, queer theory, postfeminism, and the ‘return to religion’ of Badiou and Žižek, among others, in the light of Christian theology, and suggest new ways of reading literary and cultural texts on the basis of these exchanges. Essential reading for scholars of contemporary culture, theory and religion.’ - Luke Ferretter, Assistant Professor of English, Baylor University, USA Contents: Introduction; C.Falke / PART I / Reading Theologically: Reduction and Reductio; K.Hart / After Theory, After Modernity; J.Hooten / An Ache in the Missing Limb: Biblical Origins of English Literary Criticism; S.Prickett / Good Reading: The Ethics of Christian Literary Theory; C.Falke / Sites of Resistance: Christ and Materiality after the New Historicism; M.M.Harris / Post-Secular Queer: Christianity, Queer Theory and the Unsolvable Mysteries of Sexual Desire; N.Jones / Part II / Dil Ulenspiegel: The Inverted Gospel and an Early Modern Clown; T.Lederer / Appetite and Abstinence: Re-examining Women and Eating; M.Diede / Humans, Animals and Others; P.Sampson / Theologizing Horror: Spirituality and the Gothic; A.Ng / The Secular Dream of a Christian Utopia: Tracing Puritanism in American Studies; I.Özcan / Heaven Came Down: Deconstruction, Christianity, and George Herbert’s The Collar; M.Mattek / Endnotes / References / Index November 2010 208pp Hardback £50.00

‘This is a fascinating, original and timely book. It succeeds in creating a space where theatre practice and theatre translation are able to meet. The majority of the essays, interventions and discussions in the volume are grounded in the theatre making process, and there are a wealth of different perspectives offered on what that the difficult word - practice – means for translators who work in the theatre.’ - Carl Lavery, Senior Lecturer in Theatre, Aberystwyth University, UK This exploration of the territory between theory and practice in contemporary theatre features essays by academics from theatre and translation studies, and delineates a new space for the discussion of translation in the theatre that is international, critical and scholarly, while rooted in experience and understanding of theatre practices.

'The contributors to these ground-breaking volumes engage energetically with archival research, cultural theory, literary, paratextual and bibliometric analysis, and often with each other. Through this wide range of approaches they demonstrate the crucial importance of a publishing pheonomenon which has until very recently been largely ignored.

The Development of the International Book Trade, 1870–1895

George Eliot Interviews and Recollections K. K. Collins, Southern Illinois University, USA

Tangled Networks Alison Rukavina, Teacher, English and Film Studies Department, University of Alberta, Canada, where she completed her PhD in 2007

‘This is an absolutely first-rate work at the very cutting edge of book history research, which for the last few years has been increasingly turning away from national models towards the international trade. Despite this, there exists at present no concerted account of the vast expansion in global publishing during the closing phases of British imperialism. At the moment we have specialized accounts of particular firms, but nothing that brings all these accounts together into a concerted overview of the whole nexus: the ‘tangled network’ of international trade at a vital period in its expansion. This book does all of that, enabling us to view each strand as part of a world tapestry. It is scrupulously researched. It is superbly written. Theoretically as well as empirically sophisticated, it engages intelligently with the most rewarding debates going on in book history at the present time. It is, in fine, a must.’ - Professor Robert Fraser, The Open University, UK An international trade emerged between 18701895 that incorporated the circulation of books among countries worldwide. A history of the social network and select agents who sold and distributed books overseas, this study demonstrates agents increasingly thought of the world as a negotiable, connected system and books as transnational commodities.

The Decembrist Myth in Russian Culture

A Brother’s Memoir Mikhail Chekhov, (1865-1936) was a Writer and Novelist in his own right, as well as Anton’s Assistant and Secretary. His role as his brother’s biographer began in 1905 when he was asked to share his recollections in a Moscow magazine. Mikhail died in Yalta in 1936 at the age of 71 and Eugene Alper, translator for over twenty years

‘...a gripping account of the life of one of literature’s most important figures by one of the people who knew him best...With affection and insight he describes their family and friends...and events that inspired the plots of Chekhov’s stories and plays. A true labour of love.’ - The Good Book Guide, Editor’s Choice - Biography & Memoirs April 2010 ‘A gripping study of Chekhov by his sibling... It offers a matchless eyewitness view of a man remarkable not just for literary genius but heroic decency.’ - The Sunday Times ‘It is wonderful to have this memoir finally translated into English. It provides a fascinating and absorbing portrait of Anton Chekhov and his circle. Mikhail Chekhov’s voice has the uniquely compelling ring of authenticity.’ - William Boyd, award-winning author of A Good Man in Africa, Restless, and Ordinary Thunderstorms In a style reminiscent of Anton Chekhov himself, Mikhail Chekhov shares unparalleled memories and insights, transporting readers into the world of the Chekhov family. As a unique eyewitness to the beloved writer’s formative years, Mikhail Chekhov shows here first-hand the events that inspired the plots for many of his enduring works.

Story Logic and the Craft of Fiction

Key Concepts in Creative Writing

Catherine Brady, University of San Francisco, USA

Matt Morrison, University of Westminster, UK

'Brady’s intelligence, insight, dedication to exploring how fiction works and dedication to sharing her discoveries with others are evident on every page. Anyone holding this book and wondering if there’s truly anything here that hasn’t already been said in standard handbooks, or in more advanced essays on craft, should rest assured: Catherine Brady has something to add to the conversation.' – Peter Turchi, author of Maps of the Imagination: The Writer as Cartographer

A comprehensive writers’ guide to the terminology used across the creative writing industries and in the major literary movements. Packed with practical tips for honing writing skills and identifying opportunities for publication and production, it also explains the workings of publishing houses, literary agencies and producing theatres.

Focused on the challenges faced by aspiring writers, Brady illuminates how technique serves ‘story logic’, the particular way fiction makes meaning. She offers a closer look at craft fundamentals (plot, characterization, point-of-view, imagery, style, and setting), including examples from classic and contemporary fiction and writing exercises.
