New in 2011 2nd Edition

Using Critical Theory How to Read and Write About Literature Formerly Learning for a Diverse World

Lois Tyson, Grand Valley State University, USA

Critical Theory is crucial to any study of literature and also, as this book shows, to most of modern culture. In her friendly, approachable style, Lois Tyson emphasises the importance of Critical Theory to students, explaining its relevance and how to use it.

In this new edition, New Criticism is added to the list of theories – psychoanalytic, Marxist, feminist, gay/lesbian, African American and postcolonial – which are explained and introduced before Tyson demonstrates how they can be employed to interpret five short literary works in the book: Emily Dickinson’s I started Early – Took My Dog, William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily, Ralph Ellison’s The Battle Royal, Alice Walker’s Everyday Use, and Jewelle Gomez’s Don’t Explain. In addition, a chapter on reader-response theory shows students how to understand their personal responses to literature and how to use their personal responses to produce more insightful interpretations while avoiding the typical pitfalls to which their personal responses make them vulnerable. Other new features include more resources for students wishing to further their understanding of specific theories through new sections on ‘further practice’ and ‘further reading’ for each chapter and a ‘next-step’ appendix addressing additional literary works for further study that readily lend themselves to theory. The book is also updated throughout, making it the ideal first step into critical theory for students of literature, composition and cultural studies. August 2011: 234 x 156: 320pp Hb: 978-0-415-61616-4: $135.00 Pb: 978-0-415-61617-1: $34.95 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415616171

The Canon

Epic

Christopher Kuipers, Eastern Illinois University, USA

Paul Innes, University of Glasgow, UK

What is ‘the canon’? Who determines it? How should it be read? Considering why the canon is such an important concept in literary studies, and explaining the key concepts and approaches to the debate, Christopher Kuipers:

Paul Innes offers a clear introduction to what is often a complex and unwieldy area of literary studies. Tracing epic from its ancient and classical roots through postmodern and contemporary epic and pointing towards the future, this volume discusses:

• examines the history of the Western concept of the canon, illustrating the changing view of ‘canonicity’ with examples including the scriptures, Homer, and T.S. Eliot

• a wide range of writers including Homer, Vergil, Ovid, Dante, Chaucer, Milton, Cervantes, Keats, Byron, Eliot, Walcott and Tolkien

• discusses the modern and post-modern evolution of the canon, and how theoretical innovations in literary studies have challenged and redefined the concept

• texts including poems, novels, children’s literature, TV, theatre and film

• illustrates his argument with specific examples of alternative canons, from oral and popular literature to ‘minority’ literatures • explores how ‘the canon’ relates to pedagogy and the publication of materials, such as anthologies, intended for teaching • asks what the digital era portends for the canon.

• themes and motifs such as romance, tragedy, religion, journeys and the supernatural. Taking a global perspective and addressing epic far beyond the English language, this handy book takes you on a fascinating guided tour through the epic.

Edited by Jane Elliott and Derek Attridge, both at University of York, UK

This volume argues that theory, far from being dead, has undergone major shifts in order to come to terms with the most urgent cultural and political questions of today. Offering an overview of theory’s new directions, this groundbreaking collection includes essays on affect, biopolitics, biophilosophy, the aesthetic, and neoliberalism, as well examinations of established areas such as subaltern studies, the postcolonial, and ethics. Influential figures such as Agamben, Badiou, Arendt, Deleuze, Derrida and Meillassoux are examined in a range of contexts. Gathering together some of the top thinkers in the field, this volume not only speculates on the fate of theory but shows its current diversity, encouraging conversation between divergent strands. Each section places the essays in their contexts and stages a comparison between different but ultimately related ways in which key thinkers are moving beyond poststructuralism.

On de Man, On Benjamin Paul de Man, Claire Colebrook, Penn State University, USA, J. Hillis Miller, University of California, USA and Tom Cohen

Paul de Man is often associated with an era of ‘high theory’; an era it is argued may now be coming to a close. This book, written by three leading contemporary scholars, includes a previously unpublished text by de Man of his handwritten notes for a lecture on Walter Benjamin. Challenging and relevant, this volume presents de Man’s work as a critical resource for dealing with the most important questions of the twenty-first century and argues for the place of theory within it. The humanities are flooded with crises of globalism, capitalism and terrorism, and narratives of financial collapse, viral annihilation, species extinction, environmental disaster and terrorist destruction. Cohen, Colebrook and Miller draw out the implications of these crises and their narratives and, reflecting on the de Man text, explore the limits of political thinking, of historical retrieval and the ethics of archives and cultural memory.

The Routledge Critical and Cultural Theory Reader Edited by Neil Badmington and Julia Thomas, both at University of Cardiff, UK

Everything is open to question. Nothing is sacred. Critical and cultural theory invites a rethinking of some of our most basic assumptions about who we are, how we behave, and how we interpret the world around us.

The Routledge Critical and Cultural Theory Reader brings together twenty-nine key pieces from the last century and a half that have shaped the field. Topics include: subjectivity, language, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, the body, the human, class, culture, everyday life, literature, psychoanalysis, technology, power, and visuality. The choice of texts, together with the editors’ introduction and glossary, will allow newcomers to begin from first principles, while the use of unabridged readings will also make the volume suitable for those undertaking more specialized work. Material is arranged chronologically, but the editors have suggested thematic pathways through the selections.

The Trauma Question

Reading Sexualities

Roger Luckhurst, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

Hermeneutic Theory and the Future of Queer Studies

The Trauma Question outlines the origins of the concept of trauma across psychiatric, legal and cultural-political sources from the 1860s to the coining of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 1980. It further explores the nature and extent of ‘trauma culture’ from 1980 to the present, drawing upon a range of cultural practices from literature, memoirs and confessional journalism through to photography and film. The study covers a diverse range of cultural works, including writers such as Toni Morrison, Stephen King and W.G. Sebald, artists Tracey Emin, Christian Boltanski and Tracey Moffatt, and film-makers David Lynch and Atom Egoyan.

Donald E. Hall, West Virginia University, USA

The Trauma Question offers a significant and fascinating step forward for those seeking a greater understanding of the controversial and ever-expanding field of trauma research.

Reading Sexualities confronts the reigning practices, priorities, and preoccupations of queer theory and sexuality studies. Looking at a range of texts, from novels to travel narratives to internet porn, Donald E. Hall deftly weaves the theoretical with the literary in order to: • examine the vexed ethical, critical, and political questions arising from sexual consumerism and cross-cultural encounters

• read the changing landscape of sexual identity, finding great cause for optimism and enthusiastic engagement

Reading Sexualities shows how our sexual desires and bases for identification are being widely challenged and changed. Drawing on hermeneutic theory and the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Hall argues that by approaching sexual diversity with openness and humility, we become active participants in the politically urgent process of reading the self through the perspective of the other. 2009: 216 x 138: 152pp Hb: 978-0-415-36785-1: $100.00 Pb: 978-0-415-36786-8: $34.95

Encyclopedia of Feminist Literary Theory

Novels, Maps, Modernity

Edited by Elizabeth Kowaleski Wallace, Boston College, USA

The Spatial Imagination, 1850–2000

The Encyclopedia of Feminist Literary Theory is an essential resource for scholars and students of feminist literary studies. Now available in paperback, the book offers a new, extended introduction outlining recent developments in the field such as ecofeminism, globalism and diaspora, defining emerging terms such as ‘cisgendered’ and documenting the evolution of queer theory.

In addition, the book presents entries detailing the significance of literary periods and fields such as Medieval Studies, Shakespeare, and Romanticism for feminist theory, suggesting how feminisms affect the development of new ideas and intellectual practices.

Novel Judgements

Eric Bulson, Hobart and William Smith College, USA Series: Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory Novels, Maps, Modernity argues that cartographic devices – including maps, sea charts, and aerial photographs – have radically shaped how novelistic space has been imagined and represented from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth. More than an antidote to disorientation, Eric Bulson demonstrates that they conceal a more complex story about capitalism, urbanization, empire, and world war. 2007: 229 x 152: 188pp Hb: 978-0-415-97648-0: $103.00 Pb: 978-0-415-80053-2: $40.00 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415800532

Audiobooks, Literature, and Sound Studies Edited by Matthew Rubery, Queen Mary, University of London, UK Series: Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies This is the first scholarly work to examine the cultural significance of the ‘talking book’ since the invention of the phonograph in 1877, the earliest machine to enable the reproduction of the human voice. Recent advances in sound technology make this an opportune moment to reflect on the evolution of our reading practices since this remarkable invention. Some questions addressed by the collection include: How does auditory literature adapt printed texts? What skills in close listening are necessary for its reception? What are the social consequences of new listening technologies? In sum, the essays gathered together by this collection explore the extent to which the audiobook enables us not just to hear literature but to hear it in new ways. Bringing together a set of reflections on the enrichments and impoverishments of the reading experience brought about by developments in sound technology, this collection spans the earliest adaptations of printed texts into sound by Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, and other novelists from the late nineteenth-century to recordings by contemporary figures such as Toni Morrison and Barack Obama at the turn of the twenty-first century. As the voices gathered here suggest, it is time to give a hearing to one of the most talked about new media of the past century.

Legal Theory as Fiction William P. MacNeil, Griffith University, Australia Novel Judgements addresses the ways in which jurisprudential ideas and themes are embedded and explored within nineteenth-century Anglo-American prose fiction. The nineteenth-century is the crucible of the ‘juridical imaginary’; that is, of the jurisprudential ideas and concepts which inform the law to this day. The novel not only participates actively in the construction of this juridical imaginary, devising memorable tropes and figures of law and its theory, it goes even further: providing a critique of that construction which points the reader towards a new juridical imaginary, one which may re-imagine, for example, the ‘command of the sovereign’ (Pride and Prejudice), the ethics of law (Ivanhoe), or the ‘rights of (wo)man’ (Frankenstein). As dramatisations of the principal issues and movements of nineteenth-century legal theory, these novels may therefore be read jurisprudentially. For, as William MacNeil demonstrates, they make novel judgments about legal theory – judgments which not only finds it wanting, but which also carry with them a potential for transforming a juridical imaginary that is still with us.

Experiences of Freedom in Postcolonial Literatures and Cultures Edited by Annalisa Oboe, University of Padua, Italy and Shaul Bassi, Ca’ Foscari University, Italy

The Postcolonial Gramsci

Terrorism and Insurgency in Indian-English Literature

Edited by Neelam Srivastava and Baidik Bhattacharya, both at University of Newcastle, UK The importance of Antonio Gramsci’s work for postcolonial studies can hardly be exaggerated, and in this volume, contributors attempt to situate Gramsci’s work in the vast and complex oeuvre of postcolonial studies. Combining theoretical reflections and re-interpretations of Gramsci, the scholars in this collection present comparative geo-cultural perspectives on the meaning of the subaltern, passive revolution, hegemony, and the concept of national-popular culture, in order to chart out a political map of the postcolonial through the central focus on Gramsci.

Writing Violence and Empire Alex Tickell, University of Portsmouth, UK

For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415874816

This book is an interdisciplinary study of representations of terrorism and political violence in the fiction and journalism of colonial India. Focusing on key historical episodes such as the Calcutta ‘Black Hole,’ the anti-thuggee campaigns of the 1830s, the 1857 rebellion, and anti-colonial terrorism in Edwardian London, it argues that exceptional violence was integral to colonial sovereignty and that the threat of violence mutually defined discursive relations between colonizer and colonized. Moving beyond previous studies of colonial discourse, and drawing on contemporary analyses of terrorism, Tickell examines texts by both colonial and Indian authors, tracing their contending engagements with terrorizing violence in selected newspapers, journals, novels and short stories.

July 2011: 229 x 152: 244pp Hb: 978-0-415-87481-6: $110.00

Manav Ratti, University of Warwick, UK Through an intimate, literary conjunction of religion and politics, this book theorizes the emergence of a ‘post-secular’ condition of the contemporary world, in which organized, conventional religion has failed politically. Nationalism has had its failures after decolonization in the postcolonial world, marked especially by ethnic violence, civil war, partition, and communalism. In the wake of such crises, however, we have still retained within us the need for faith, wonder, and enchantment – which must now find its expression without the political constraints of organized religion, nationalism, and ethnic majoritarianism. Ratti discusses recent Anglophone novels that reflect the multireligious nature of the Indian sub-continent, including such religions and forms of belief as Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Christianity, and tribal animism. The main emphasis being on the work of Michael Ondaatje and Salman Rushdie, it will address a breadth of writers, including Mahasweta Devi, Amitav Ghosh, Allan Sealy, and Shauna Singh Baldwin.

Darwin in Atlantic Cultures Evolutionary Visions of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Edited by Jeannette Eileen Jones, University of Nebraska, USA and Patrick B. Sharp, California State University, USA This collection is an interdisciplinary edited volume that examines the circulation of Darwinian ideas in the Atlantic space as they impacted systems of Western thought and culture. Specifically, the book explores the influence of the principle tenets of Darwinism – such as the theory of evolution, the ape-man theory of human origins, and the principle of sexual selection – on established transatlantic intellectual traditions and cultural practices. In doing so, it pays particular attention to how Darwinism reconfigured discourses on race, gender, and sexuality in a transnational context. 2009: 229 x 152: 318pp Hb: 978-0-415-87234-8: $110.00 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415872348

Defining the Atlantic Community Culture, Intellectuals, and Policies in the Mid-Twentieth Century

A Reader Edited by Theo D’haen, KU Leuven, Belgium, Cesar Dominguez, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain and Mads Rosendahl Thomsen, Aarhus University, Denmark Series: The Routledge Literature Readers

Edited by Marco Mariano, University of Eastern Piedmont, Italy In this volume, essays by scholars from both sides of the Atlantic open new perspectives on the construction of the ‘Atlantic community’ during World War II and the early Cold War years. Based on original approaches bringing together diplomatic history and the history of culture and ideas, the book shows how atlantism came to provide a solid ideological foundation for the security community of North American and European nations which took shape in the 1940s. The idea of a transatlantic community based on shared histories, values, and political and economic institutions was instrumental to the creation of the Atlantic Alliance, and partly accounts for the continuing existence of the Atlantic partnership after the Cold War. At the same time, this study breaks new ground by arguing that the emergence of the idea of ‘Atlantic community’ also reflected deeper trends in transatlantic relations; in fact, it was the outcome of the re-definition of ‘the West’ due to the rise of the US and the decline of Europe in the international arena during the first half of the twentieth-century.

Diaspora Literature and Visual Culture Asia in Flight Sheng-mei Ma, Michigan State University, USA Series: Routledge Contemporary Asia Series This book offers an incisive and ambitious critique of Asian Diaspora culture, looking specifically at literature and visual popular culture. Sheng-mei Ma’s engaging text discusses issues of self and its relationship with Asian Diaspora culture in the global twenty-first century. Using examples from Asia, Asian America, and Asian Diaspora from the West, the book weaves a narrative that challenges the twenty-first century triumphal discourse of Asia and argues that given the long shadow cast across modern film and literature, this upward mobility is inescapably escapist, a flight from itself; Asia’s stunning self-transformation is haunted by self-alienation. The chapters discuss a wealth of topics, including Asianness, Orientalism, and Asian American identity, drawing on a variety of pop culture sources from The Matrix Trilogy to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Covering the mediums of literature, film, and visual cultures, this book will be of immense interest to scholars and students of Asian studies and literature, ethnic studies, cultural studies, and film.

In the quality and range of its selections, the questions they raise, and the case studies they offer, this anthology is what teachers working at the intersections of literary, cultural, and globalization studies have been waiting for.

Transnational Russian-American Travel Writing Margarita Marinova, Christopher Newport University, USA Series: Routledge Research in Travel Writing This book examines the diverse practices of crossing boundaries, tactics of translation, and experiences of double and multiple political and national attachments, evident in textual products of Russo-American travel encounters during an understudied period (from the end of the American Civil War to the Russian Revolution of 1905) of superficial good will between the two countries. The study brings together published writings, archival materials, and personal correspondence of well or less known travelers of diverse ethnic backgrounds and artistic predilections: from the quintessential American Mark Twain to the Russian-Jewish ethnographer and revolutionary Vladimir Bogoraz; from masters of realist prose such as the Ukrainian-born Vladimir Korolenko and the Jewish-Russian-American Abraham Cahan, to romantic wanderers like Edna Proctor, Isabel Hapgood or Grigorii Machtet.

Native American Writing

The Routledge Encyclopedia of American Poetry: The Twentieth Century

Edited by A. Robert Lee, Nihon University, Tokyo, Japan

Eric Haralson, Stony Brook University, USA

As research on and around the literary output of Native Americans flourishes as never before, this new four-volume collection, co-published by Routledge and Edition Synapse, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to help users answer these and other questions, and generally to make sense of the subject’s vast literature and a continuing explosion in research output.

‘A valuable tool for students interested in twentieth-century American poetry.’ – Booklist/RBB

This eagerly awaited collection is a wide-ranging compendium which brings together hard-to-find original works by Native writers themselves, as well as critical and learned analyses of their creative productions. Volume I opens with a sequence of Native American overviews (‘Momaday to Louis Owen’), followed by the most important critical theory dealing with ideology and custodianship. The volume also considers key notions such as the idea of the spoken inside the written word. Volume II looks first to accounts of Native autobiography, from the Pequot William Apess onwards, and also explores early modern writing, from the Paiute-raised Sarah Winnemucca and Creek poet and satirist, Alex Posey, to the Sioux Luther Standing Bear. Volume III focuses on modern Native fiction. The final volume in the collection addresses Native poetry and drama and First Nations authorship. Native American Writing includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, as well as detailed bibliographies, timelines, and lists of tribal groupings. It is an essential work of reference, destined to be especially valued by those with an interest in how indigenous writers have given literary imagination to their history in North America, Canada, and beyond.

Modern American Counter Writing Beats, Outriders, Ethnics A. Robert Lee, Nihon University, Japan Series: Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory The dissident voice in US culture might almost be said to have been born with the territory. Its span runs from Roger Williams to Thoreau, Anne Bradstreet to Gertrude Stein, Ambrose Bierce to the New Journalism, The Beats to the recent Bad Subjects cyber-crowd. In this new study, A. Robert Lee aims to explore those counter-seams of modern American writing that sit outside, or at least awkwardly within, agreed literary canons. Specifically, Lee analyses three recent literary branches in the tradition: a re-envisioning of the whole Beat web or circuit; a consortium of postwar ‘outrider’ voices – Hunter S. Thompson to Joan Didion to Kathy Acker; and a latest purview of what, all too casually, has been designated ‘ethnic’ writing.

Routledge Transnational Perspectives on American Literature series Series Editor: Susan Castillo, Kings College, London, UK In an age of globalisation, it has become increasingly difficult to characterise the United States as culturally and linguistically homogenous and impermeable to influences from beyond its territorial borders. This series seeks to provide more cosmopolitan and transnational perspectives on American literature, by offering: • in-depth analyses of American writers and writing by internationally based scholars • critical studies that foster awareness of the ways in which American writing engages with writers and cultures north and south of its territorial boundaries, as well as with writers and cultures across the Atlantic and Pacific.

Cities, Borders and Spaces in Intercultural American Literature and Film

Travel and Dislocation in Contemporary American Fiction

Ana M. Manzanas, Universidad de Salamanca, Spain and Jesús Benito Sanchez, Universidad de Valladolid, Spain

Looking at such authors as Eggers, Banks, Tan, and Foer, this book offers a critical study and analysis of American novels that quite literally ‘go outward’: it discusses books whose protagonists go abroad, and concentrates on narratives that take place mainly away from the US’s geographical borders. Contemporary American fiction has featured soldiers, missionaries, tourists, heritage travelers, fugitives from the law, aid workers and aspiring philanthropists. What do these characters reveal about what it means to be American at the beginning of the twenty-first century? And what do these novels tell us about the place of America in the world, and about the nature of American literature itself? These are some of the broader themes and questions that this study explores.

This book examines the spatial morphologies represented in a wide range of contemporary ethnic American literary and cinematic works. Drawing from Henri Lefebvre’s theorization of space as a living organism, Edward Soja’s writings on the postmetropolis, Marc Augé’s notion of the non-place, Manuel Castells’ space of flows, and Michel de Certeau’s theories of walking as a practice, the volume extends previous theorizations by examining how spatial uses, appropriations, strictures, ruptures, and reconfigurations function in literary texts and films that represent inhabitants of racial-ethnic borderlands and migrational US cities. The authors argue for the necessity of an alternative poetics of place that makes room for those who move beyond the spaces of traditional visibility – displaced and homeless people, undocumented workers, hybrid and/or marginalized populations rendered invisible by the cultural elite, yet often disciplined by agents of surveillance.

The Construction of Irish Identity in American Literature Christopher Dowd, Missouri Southern State University, USA This book examines the development of literary constructions of Irish-American identity from the mid-nineteenth century arrival of the Famine generation through the Great Depression. It goes beyond an analysis of negative Irish stereotypes and shows how Irish characters became the site of intense cultural debate regarding American identity, with some writers imagining Irishness to be the antithesis of Americanness, but others suggesting Irishness to be a path to Americanization.

Transnationalism and American Serial Fiction Patricia Okker, University of Missouri, USA Spanning the 1820s through the 1960s, this collection analyzes serial fiction published in English, French, Spanish, German, Swedish, Italian, Polish, Norwegian, Yiddish, and Chinese, considering the ways in which serials function within minority communities. Okker claims that serial fiction was produced and read within a richly transnational context: the periodicals often circulated broadly, the narratives themselves favored transnational plots and themes, and the contents surrounding the fiction encouraged readers to identify with a community dispersed throughout the United States and often the world. She looks at the circulation of ideas, periodicals, characters and plots, and even people across various borders, focusing particularly on the ways that this fiction reflects the larger transnational realities of minority communities. In linking these transnational allegiances with the circulation of stories and periodicals, this book contributes to our understanding of not only print culture and periodical studies, but also transnationalism and multilingualism in American literature.

Domesticity and Design in American Women’s Lives and Literature

Food and Culture in Contemporary American Fiction

Ernest Hemingway Edited by Henry Claridge, University of Kent, UK Series: Critical Assessments of Major Writers Few twentieth-century American writers have been as influential as Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961). Whilst contemporaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner may be as widely taught and studied as Hemingway, neither had an influence on other writers – or indeed, the cognate arts – as great as that of Hemingway. For example, the ‘hard-boiled’ school of detective fiction extending from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett to those of James Ellroy and Robert Parker is more or less inconceivable without Hemingway’s stylistic influence. Arguably, film noir is also Hemingwayesque in its laconic detachment. Quite independently of his creative writings, Hemingway’s life continues to exert a profound fascination for both student and the general reader.

Critical Approaches to American Working-Class Literature

Stowe, Alcott, Cather, and Wharton Writing Home Caroline Hellman, New York City College of Technology, USA Series: Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory This book explores the ways in which four American women writers from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth-century inhabited domestic space and portrayed it in their work. Hellman explores independent female authors who had intriguing and autonomous relationships with home, relocating frequently either to begin the creative processes of designing and decorating anew or to avoid domestic obligation altogether by remaining in transit. She also looks at how women authors wrote female characters into existence who had strikingly different relationships with home, and contended with profound burdens of housekeeping in an oppressive domestic sphere.

Lorna Piatti-Farnell, Bishop Grosseteste University, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Literature Although eating is a universal activity, food is constantly crossing boundaries and shifting registers – from biological to political, from economic to sexual. As the multi-cultural framework of the American ‘melting pot’ is placed into focus, food acts as a marker of social identity, a tacit medium that touches on ethnicity, race, class and gender. Starting from the premise that ‘food studies’ has recently developed into a comprehensive field of research, this book offers a critical analysis of the significances of food and eating in contemporary American fiction. Looking at the works of Bret Easton Ellis, Don DeLillo, Fannie Flagg, Amy Tan, Monique Truong, Michael Chabon, Kurt Vonnegut, and others, Piatti-Farnell shows how literary representations of the culinary elucidate questions of political economy, class hierarchy, gender, sexuality, race, ethnic tradition, immigrant identity, nationhood and history.

Antebellum American Women Writers and the Road

Edited by Michelle Tokarczyk, Goucher University, USA

Susan L. Roberson, Texas A&M University, USA

Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature In this collection, contributors take a critical look at American working-class literature. Drawing upon theories of media studies, postcolonial studies, masculinity studies, and Marxism, contributors look at texts including Sherman Alexie’s Indian Killer and Tom Wolfe’s I Am Charlotte Simmons, amongst others. The collection aims to: • depict the ways that working-class writers render the lives they see or live • underscore the problems inherent in expecting working-class students to assimilate to a middle-class environment and the possibilities of intervening through curricular revisions

American Mobilities Series: Routledge Studies in Nineteenth Century Literature A study of American women’s narratives of mobility and travel, this book examines how geographic movement opened up other movements or mobilities for antebellum women at a time of great national expansion. Concerned with issues of personal and national identity, the study demonstrates how women not only went out on the open road, but participated in public discussions of nationhood in the texts they wrote. Roberson examines a variety of narratives and subjects, including not only traditional travel narratives of voyages to the West or to foreign locales, but also the ways travel and movement figured in autobiography, spiritual, and political narratives, and domestic novels by women as they constructed their own politics of mobility.

Just Imagine

Series: Routledge Studies in Medieval Religion and Culture The importance of readings of Eve for understanding how women were viewed at various times is a critical commonplace, but one which has been only narrowly investigated. This book systematically explores the different ways in which Eve was understood by Christians in antiquity and in the English Middle Ages, and it relates these understandings to female social roles. The result is an Eve more various than she is often depicted by scholars. Beginning with material from the bible, the Church Fathers and Jewish sources, the book goes on to look at a broad selection of medieval writing, including theological works and literary texts in Old and Middle English. The book allows readers to trace the continuities and discontinuities in the way Eve was portrayed over a millennium and a half, and as such it is of interest to those interested in women or the bible in the Middle Ages.

Crying in the Middle Ages Tears of History Edited by Elina Gertsman, Case Western Reserve University, USA Series: Routledge Studies in Medieval Religion and Culture Fueled by the resurgence of interest in the history of emotions, this interdisciplinary book gathers together essays that consider the role of weeping in medieval visual, theological, and literary discourses, and explore it in relation to viewership, gender, piety, transmission, and social, visual, and linguistic performances. Gertsman addresses the place of tears in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic cultural discourses, providing a key resource for scholars interested in exploring medieval notions of emotion, gesture, and sensory experience in a variety of cultural contexts.

William Shakespeare is one of the most widely studied and culturally significant writers of all time, and his language and thought remain interwoven through popular reference and imaginings of the Western canon. In this friendly, structured guide, Robert Shaughnessy: • introduces Shakespeare’s life and works in context, providing crucial historical background

Edited by John Drakakis and Dale Townshend, both at University of Stirling, UK ‘...[T]he book will most certainly be of use to Shakespearean and eighteenth-century scholars and is well worth the read. Gothic Shakespeares is a pioneering foray into a vast landscape of topics; hopefully further discussions will ensue.’ – Peter Paolucci, York University, UK Readings of Shakespeare were both influenced by and influential in the rise of Gothic forms in literature and culture from the late eighteenth-century onwards. Shakespeare’s plays are full of ghosts, suspense, fear-inducing moments and cultural anxieties which many writers in the Gothic mode have since emulated, adapted and appropriated. 2008: 216 x 138: 264pp Hb: 978-0-415-42066-2: $130.00 Pb: 978-0-415-42067-9: $39.95 eBook: 978-0-203-88574-1

The Routledge Companion to Actors’ Shakespeare

These essays show the outline of a Shakespeare rather different from the man sought by biographers from his time to our own. They also show the effects, the ephemera, the clues and cues, welcome and unwelcome, out of which Shakespeare’s admirers and dedicated scholars have pieced together a vision of the playwright, whether as sage, psychologist, lover, theatrical entrepreneur, or moral authority. This collection of Garber’s work brings together classic pieces, hard-to-find chapters, and two new essays.

How to do Shakespeare Adrian Noble, formally of RSC Adrian Noble has worked on Shakespeare with everyone from Oscar-nominated actors to groups of school children. Here he draws on several decades of top-level directing experience to shed new light on how to bring some of theatre’s seminal texts to life. He shows you how to approach the perennial issues of performing Shakespeare, including: • wordplay – using colour and playing plain, wit and comedy, making language muscular • building a character – different strategies, using the text, Stanislavski and Shakespeare • shape and structure – headlining a speech, playing soliloquys, determining a speech’s purpose and letting the verse empower you • dialogue – building tension, sharing responsibility and ‘passing the ball’. This guided tour of Shakespeare’s complex but unfailingly rewarding work stunningly combines instruction and inspiration. 2009: 216 x 138: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-54926-4: $90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-54927-1: $27.95 eBook: 978-0-203-86605-4 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415549271

Shakespearean Genealogies of Power

Richard II

A Whispering of Nothing in Hamlet, Richard II, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, and The Winter’s Tale

Edited by Jeremy Lopez, University of Toronto, Canada

Anselm Haverkamp, New York University, USA

Arguably the first play in a Shakespearean tetralogy, Richard II is a unique and compelling political drama whose themes still resonate today. It is one of the few Shakespeare plays written entirely in verse and its format presents unique theatrical challenges. Politically engaged and controversial, it raises crucial debates about the relationship between Early modern art, audience response and state power.

Shakespearean Genealogies of Power proposes a new view on Shakespeare’s involvement with the legal sphere: as a visible space between the spheres of politics and law and well able to negotiate legal and political, even constitutional concerns, Shakespeare’s theatre opened up a new perspective on normativity. His plays reflect, even create, ‘history’ in a new sense on the premises of the older conceptions of historical and legal exemplarity: examples, cases, and instances are to be reflected rather than treated as straightforwardly didactic or salvific. Thus, what comes to be recognized, reflected and acknowledged has a disowning, alienating effect, whose enduring aftermath rather than its theatrical immediacy counts and remains effective.

Shakespeare, the Bible, and the History of the Material Book Contested Scriptures Edited by Travis DeCook, Carleton University, Canada and Alan Galey, University of Toronto, Canada Series: Routledge Studies in Shakespeare Why do Shakespeare and the English Bible seem to have an inherent relationship with each other? How have these two monumental traditions in the history of the book functioned as mutually reinforcing sources of cultural authority? How do material books and related reading practices serve as specific sites of intersection between these two textual traditions? This collection makes a significant intervention in our understanding of Shakespeare, the Bible, and the role of textual materiality in the construction of cultural authority. Departing from conventional source study, it questions the often naturalized links between the Shakespearean and biblical corpora, examining instead the historically contingent ways these links have been forged. The volume brings together leading scholars in Shakespeare, book history, and the Bible as literature, whose essays converge on the question of Scripture as source versus Scripture as process – whether that scripture is biblical or Shakespearean – and in turn explore themes such as cultural authority, pedagogy, secularism, textual scholarship, and the materiality of texts.

New Critical Essays

Series: Shakespeare Criticism

This collection provides a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the critical and theatrical history of the play. The substantial introduction provides a history of Richard II, its performance and reception and a particular engagement with the unique qualities of the play and the character of Richard. The twelve essays by leading and emerging scholars in the field then adopt an eclectic range of critical approaches that encourage scholars and students to pursue new and imaginative directions with the text.

Ecocriticism and Early Modern English Literature Green Pastures Todd A. Borlik, Bloomsburg University, USA In this timely new study, Borlik reveals the surprisingly rich potential for the emergent ‘green’ criticism to yield fresh insights into early modern English literature. Deftly avoiding the anachronistic casting of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century authors as modern environmentalists, he argues that environmental issues, such as nature’s personhood, deforestation, energy use, air quality, climate change, and animal sentience, are formative concerns in many early modern texts. Situating plays and poems alongside an eclectic array of secondary sources, including herbals, forestry laws, husbandry manuals, almanacs, and philosophical treatises on politics and ethics, Borlik demonstrates that Elizabethan and Jacobean authors were very much aware of, and concerned about, the impact of human beings on their natural surroundings.

Eighteenth and NineteenthCentury Literature

Edited by Rebecca Totaro, Florida Gulf Coast University, USA and Ernest B. Gilman, New York University, USA

New

Routledge Studies in Renaissance Literature and Culture series (continued)

This collection offers readers a timely encounter with the historical experience of people adapting to a pandemic emergency and the corresponding narrative representation of that crisis, as early modern writers transformed the plague into literature. The essays examine the impact of the plague on health, politics, and religion as well as on the plays, prose fiction, and plague bills that stand as witnesses to the experience of a society devastated by contagious disease. By representing the plague for their audiences, these writers made an epidemic calamity intelligible: for them, the dreaded disease could signify despair but also hope, bewilderment but also a divine plan, quarantine but also liberty, death but also new life.

Prophecy and Sibylline Imagery in the Renaissance Shakespeare’s Sibyls Jessica L. Malay, University of Huddersfield, UK This book restores the rich tradition of the Sibyls to the position of prominence they once held in the culture and society of the English Renaissance. The Sibyls – figures from classical antiquity – played important roles in literature, scholarship and art of the period, exerting a powerful authority due to their centuries-old connection to prophetic declamations of the coming of Christ and the Apocalypse. The identity of the Sibyls, however, was not limited to this particular aspect of their fame, but contained a fluid multi-layering of meanings given their prominence in ancient Greek and Roman cultures, as well as the widespread dissemination of prophecies attributed the Sibyls that circulated through the oral tradition. This book explores the many identities, the many faces, of the prophetic Sibyls as they appear in the works of English Renaissance writers.

The Textual Condition of Late Nineteenth-Century Literature Josephine Guy, University of Nottingham, UK and Ian Small, University of Birmingham, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Nineteenth Century Literature In this important new book, Guy and Small develop a new account of literary creativity in the late nineteenthcentury, one which combines concepts generated by text-theorists concerning the embodied nature of textuality with the empirical insights of text-editors and book historians. They pay particular attention to the theoretical relationship between a work and its versions, examining how an understanding of the history of a work’s textual embodiments has implications for how critics value and identify it. Examining poetry, fiction, non-fictional prose and drama, this volume addresses complex questions about the nature of literary value and the formation of the canon through a discussion of textual materiality rather than materialism or ideology (as has habitually been the case).

This study focuses on the dynamic interaction between Byron and Madame de Staël, Lady Morgan, Mary Shelley and Jane Austen; and the reaction to Byronism of the Brontës and Harriet Beecher Stowe. It thus challenges previous critics’ segregation of the male Romantic poets from their female peers, whose agenda was perceived to be different: domestic and social.

This innovative reading of Primo Levi’s work offers the first sustained analysis in English of his representations of bodies and embodiment. Discussion spans the range of Levi’s works – from testimony to journalism, from essays to science fiction stories – identifying and tracing multiple narratives of embodiment and disembodiment across his oeuvre. These narratives range from the abject, disembodied condition of prisoners in Auschwitz, to posthuman or cyborg individuals, whose bodies merge with technological devices. Levi’s representations of bodies are explored in relation to theories of embodiment and posthumanism, bringing his work into new dialogue with critical discourses on these issues.

The Routledge Drama Anthology and Sourcebook

Taking inspiration from Levi’s definition of the human being as a constructor of containers, as well as from the recurring references to both material and metaphorical containing structures in his work, the book suggests that for Levi, embodiment involves constant negotiations of containment. He depicts the complex relationships between physical and social bodies, the material and the immaterial self, the conscious and unconscious subject, the organic and the technologically-enhanced body, engaging with evolving understandings of the boundaries of the body, the self, and the human.

Global Cold War Literatures Edited by Andrew Hammond, University of Brighton, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature In countries worldwide, the Cold War dominated politics, society and culture during the second half of the twentieth-century. Global Cold War Literatures offers a unique look at the multiple ways in which writers from Asia, Africa, Europe and North and South America addressed the military conflicts, revolutions, propaganda wars and ideological debates of the era. While including essays on western European and North American literature, the volume views First World writing, not as central to the period, but as part of an international discussion of Cold War realities in which the most interesting contributions often came from marginal or subordinate cultures. To this end, there is an emphasis on the literatures of the Second and Third Worlds, including essays on Latin American poetry, Soviet travel writing, Chinese autobiography, African theatre, North Korean literature, Cuban and eastern European fiction, and Middle Eastern fiction and poetry.

Keats and Philosophy The Life of Sensations Shahidha Kazi Bari, Queen Mary, University of London, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature This book provides a reappraisal of John Keats, casting him as a figure of serious philosophical interest who warrants renewed attention in a contemporary age. With a literary-philosophical approach, Bari presents a fresh contribution to the fields of Romantic poetics and critical aesthetics, and demonstrates the productive ways in which literary theory might supplement literary criticism. Attending to a range of Keats’s work, examining some lesser known sonnets alongside the epics Endymion and Hyperion, this study re-evaluates Keats’s writing and challenges the prevailing critical understanding that previously cast him as a poet of unthinking sensuality.

Justice, Literature, and the Rule of Law: Kangaroo Courts addresses the legacy of contemporary critiques of language for the concept of the rule of law. Pursuing a reflection upon the relationship between law and the humanities, the book stages an encounter between the influential theoretical work of Jacques Derrida and D.H. Lawrence’s strange and misunderstood novel Kangaroo (1923). One hundred years ago, and struggling with the same problems we are puzzling over today, Lawrence articulated complex ideas about the nature of justice and the nature of literature. And, using Lawrence to clarify Derrida’s major writings on law, as well as using Derrida to clarify Lawrence’s experience of literature, Manderson makes a robust case for ‘law and literature’, as he outlines a ‘post-positivist’ conception of the rule of law – in which justice is imperfectly possible, rather than perfectly impossible.

Multimodality, Cognition, and Experimental Literature

Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature In Salman Rushdie’s novels images are invested with the power to manipulate the plotline, to stipulate actions from the characters, to have sway over them, seduce them, or even lead them astray. Salman Rushdie and Visual Culture sheds light on this largely unremarked – even if central – dimension of the work of a major contemporary writer. This collection brings together, for the first time and into a coherent whole, research on the extensive interplay between the visible and the readable in Rushdie’s fiction.

Aesthetic Pleasure in Twentieth-Century Women’s Food Writing The Innovative Appetites of M.F.K. Fisher, Alice B. Toklas, and Elizabeth David

Alison Gibbons, University of Nottingham, UK

Alice McLean, Sweet Briar College, USA

Series: Routledge Studies in Multimodality

Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature

Since the turn of the millennium, there has been an increase in the inclusion of typography, graphics and illustration in fiction. This book engages with visual and multimodal devices in twenty-first century literature, exploring canonical authors like Mark Z. Danielewski and Jonathan Safran Foer alongside experimental fringe writers such as Steve Tomasula, to uncover an embodied textual aesthetics in the information age. Bringing together multimodality and cognition in an innovative study of how readers engage with challenging literature, this book makes a significant contribution to the debates surrounding multimodal design and multimodal reading. Drawing on cognitive linguistics, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, semiotics, visual perception, visual communication, and multimodal analysis, Gibbons provides a sophisticated set of critical tools for analysing the cognitive impact of multimodal literature.

In this study, McLean explores the aesthetic pleasures of eating and writing in the lives of three of the most eloquent food writers of the twentieth-century: M.F.K. Fisher, Alice B. Toklas, and Elizabeth David. Growing up during a time when women’s food writing was largely limited to the domestic cookbook, which delineated a track hedged by duty, domesticity, and self-sacrifice, Fisher, Toklas, and David each pioneered an idiosyncratic form of writing that challenged such rigidly gendered and proscriptive bounds.

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children’s lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children’s lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture.

In Relentless Progress, Zipes looks at the surprising ways that stories have influenced people within contemporary culture and vice versa. Among the many topics explored here are the dumbing down of books for children, the marketing of childhood, the changing shape of feminist fairy tales, and why American and British children aren’t exposed to more non-western fairy tales.

Critical multicultural analysis provides a philosophical shift for teaching literature, constructing curriculum, and taking up issues of diversity and social justice. It problematizes children’s literature, offers a way of reading power, explores the complex web of sociopolitical relations, and deconstructs taken-for-granted assumptions about language, meaning, reading, and literature: it is literary study as sociopolitical change.

Peter Pan’s Shadows in the Literary Imagination Kirsten Stirling, University of Lausanne, Switzerland This book is a literary analysis of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan in all its different versions – key rewritings, dramatisations, prequels, and sequels – and includes a synthesis of the main critical interpretations of the text over its history. A comprehensive and intelligent study of the Peter Pan phenomenon, this study discusses the book’s complicated textual history, exploring its origins in the Harlequinade theatrical tradition and British pantomime in the nineteenth-century. Stirling investigates potential textual and extra-textual sources for Peter Pan, the critical tendency to seek sources in Barrie’s own biography, and the proliferation of prequels and sequels aiming to explain, contextualize, or close off, Barrie’s exploration of the imagination.

Innocence, Heterosexuality, and the Queerness of Children’s Literature

Crossover Picturebooks

Tison Pugh, University of Central Florida, USA Innocence, Heterosexuality, and the Queerness of Children’s Literature examines distinguished classics of children’s literature both old and new – including L. Frank Baum’s Oz books, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series – to explore the queer tensions between innocence and heterosexuality within their pages. The book demonstrates that tensions between innocence and sexuality render much of children’s literature queer, especially when these texts disavow sexuality through celebrations of innocence. In this original study, Pugh develops interpretations of sexuality that few critics have yet ventured, paving the way for future scholarly engagement with larger questions about the ideological role of children’s literature and representations of children’s sexuality.

Humor in Contemporary Junior Literature Julie Cross, Roehampton University, UK In this new book, Julie Cross examines the intricacies of textual humor in contemporary junior literature, using the tools of literary criticism and humor theory. Cross investigates the dialectical paradoxes of humor and debunks the common belief in oppositional binaries of ‘simple’ versus ‘complex’ humor. The varied combinations of so-called high and low forms of humor within junior texts for young readers, who are at such a crucial stage of their reading and social development, provide a valuable commentary upon the culture and values of contemporary western society, making the book of considerable interest to scholars of both children’s literature and childhood studies.

Picturebooks for Children and Adults Sandra Beckett, Brock University, Canada Although crossover fiction is now recognized as a distinct literary genre and marketing category by critics, publishers, booksellers, writers, and readers, the term ‘crossover’ is generally used in a very narrow sense for children’s and young adult novels read by adults. Picturebooks that cross from young readers to an adult audience have been overlooked, despite the fact that picturebooks, more than any other genre, can genuinely be books for all ages, and indeed, many contemporary picturebooks deny and defy publishers’ often very age-specific categories of readers. This study will examine an international corpus of contemporary picturebooks – including artists’ books, celebrity picturebooks, and others – that appeal to readers of all ages. A wide selection of picturebooks in many languages from around the globe are analyzed. The study focuses on contemporary picturebooks, with emphasis on those published since 1990, but important earlier examples are also mentioned to provide a historical context.

Beyond Pippi Longstocking Intermedial and International Approaches to Astrid Lindgren’s Work Edited by Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer, University of Tübingen, Germany and Astrid Surmatz, Universiteit van Amsterdam, Holland Astrid Lindgren, author of the famed Pippi Longstocking novels, is perhaps one of the most significant children’s authors of the last half of the twentieth-century. In this collection contributors consider films, music, and picturebooks relating to Lindgren, in addition to the author’s reception internationally. Touching on everything from the Astrid Lindgren theme park at Vimmerby, Sweden to the hidden folk songs in Lindgren’s works to the use of nostalgia in film adaptations of Lindgren’s novels, this collection offers an important international and intermedial portrait of Lindgren research today.

Looking at European drama through an ecological lens, this book chronicles nature and the environment as primary topics in major plays from ancient to recent times. Cless focuses on the few, yet well-known plays in which nature is at stake in the action or the environment is a dramatic force. Though theater predominantly explores human and cultural themes, these plays fully display the power of the other-than-human world and its endangerment during the history of Europe. The book is one of the first of its kind in a growing field of ecocriticism and emerging eco-studies of theater.

The Role of Translators in Children’s Literature Invisible Storytellers Gillian Lathey, Roehampton University London, UK This book offers a historical analysis of key classical translated works for children, such as writings by Hans Christian Andersen and Grimms’ tales. Translations dominate the earliest history of texts written for children in English, and stories translated from other languages have continued to shape its course to the present day. Lathey traces the role of the translator and the impact of translations on the history of English-language children’s literature from the ninth-century onwards. Discussions of popular texts in each era reveal fluctuations in the reception of translated children’s texts, as well as instances of cultural mediation by translators and editors.

In this innovative collection, an international group of scholars come together to discuss literary metaphors and cognitive metaphor theory. The volume’s goals are three-fold. The first aim of the book is to present some recent approaches to metaphor which have no immediate connection with cognitive metaphor theory and have developed independently of it. While the cognitive approach has become the leading paradigm in the English speaking world, elsewhere (in Europe) rhetorical, semantic, and logical models have remained in use and continue to be elaborated. These models have so far had little international exposure. Their inclusion in this study is meant to provide a balance to the cognitive paradigm and to open up a possible discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of cognitive metaphor theory for the analysis of literary texts. The second aim of the collection is to illustrate a range of successful applications of the new cognitive models to literary texts. And, the third aim of the study is to provide an assessment of cognitive metaphor theory from a literary point of view.

Language, Ideology and Identity in Serial Killer Narratives Christiana Gregoriou, University of Leeds, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Rhetoric and Stylistics In this book, Gregoriou explores the portrayal of the serial killer identity and its related ideology across a range of contemporary crime narratives, including detective fiction, the true crime genre and media journalism. How exactly is the serial killer consciousness portrayed, how is the killing linguistically justified, and how distinguishing is the language revolving around criminal ideology and identity across these narrative genres? By employing linguistic and content-related methods of analysis, her study aims to work toward the development of a stylistic framework on the representation of serial killer ideology across factual (i.e. media texts), factional (i.e. true crime books) and fictional (i.e. novels) murder narratives. By analysing serial murder narratives across various genres, Gregoriou uncovers a widely shared ‘group schema’ for these murderers, and questions the extent to which real criminal minds are in fact linguistically fictionalised. Gregoriou’s study of the mental functioning and representation of criminal personas can help illuminate our schematic understanding of actual criminal minds.

Reading the Cantos A Study of Meaning in Ezra Pound Noel Stock First published in 1967, this is a study which tackles the central problem of meaning, within Ezra Pound’s The Cantos. It deals with the question of important critical issues, as well as of interpretation and understanding. Students of modern poetry will derive great benefit from this vigorous and lucid analysis of Pound’s masterpiece. Noel Stock’s finding is radical: that The Cantos is not a really a poem at all, but rather notes towards a poem. It is a collection of fragments of varying quality – some of extraordinary power and beauty – but in no sense formed into a work of art.

Chaucer and the Social Contest Peggy Knapp, Carnegie Mellon University, USA First published in 1990, Chaucer and the Social Contest takes a fresh view of The Canterbury Tales, by placing the storytelling contest among the Canterbury pilgrims within the larger social contests in the changing England of the late fourteenth-century. The author focuses on three crucial fields of contention: the division of social duties into the three estates, the controversies around Wycliffite thought and practice, and the roles of women. Drawing on recent literary theory, particularly Bakhtin and Foucault, Peggy Knapp offers both a reading of nearly all the tales and an argument about how such readings come about, both for Chaucer’s earliest audiences and for us.
