Innovation and Activism in American Women’s Writing

Sharon J. Kirsch, Arizona State University; Janet Boyd, Fairleigh Dickinson University We invite monographs and edited collections of essays that examine how women’s writing in America questions, resists, subverts, or revises traditional gender roles, ways of knowing, ways of meaning/interpreting, and expectations of genre.

Latin American Decolonial and Postcolonial Literature Thomas Ward, Loyola University Maryland

This series features works that analyze and engage with Latin American decolonial and postcolonial literatures. Decolonial can take the form of resistance to the colonial during that period or it can involve working to overcome the cultural and political heritage of the colonial interval after independence.

Ranjan Ghosh, University of North Bengal; Daniel T. O’Hara, Temple University This series explores how our reading and understanding of literature and culture within modernity is about ‘going beyond’.

American Literature, Lynching, and the Spectator in the Crowd

Great War Modernism

Artistic Response in the Context of War, 1914–1918

Edited by Nanette Norris, Royal Military College Saint-Jean

Spectacular Violence

By Debbie Lelekis, Florida Institute of Technology

This volume explores and clarifies the position of the so-called ‘core’ of literary modernism in its seminal engagement with the Great War. The war years were seminal to the development of a distinguishable literary practice called ‘modernism,’ but perhaps could be further delineated as ‘Great War modernism.’ This collection of essays offers new insight into canonical British/American/European modernism of the Great War period using the critical tools of contemporary, expansionist modernist studies. By focusing on war, and on the experience of the soldier and of those dealing with issues of war and survival, these studies link the unique forms of expression found in modernism with the fragmented, violent, and traumatic experience of the time.

“This is a rich and intelligent analysis of an important—but rarely investigated—field of U.S. literary and cultural history. Lelekis’s study recovers the work of influential turnof-the-century writers such as Irvin Cobb and Miriam Michelson, and it reexamines key texts by more canonical figures, such as Theodore Dreiser and Paul Laurence Dunbar, asking how these authors explored and questioned American principles of democracy through representations of mob violence and spectators. By focusing longoverdue attention on the complex relations between journalists, crowds, and fictional narratives, Lelekis’s work sheds new light on the intersectionality of race, gender, and spectatorship in turn-of-the-century U.S. culture.” —William Scott, University of Pittsburgh

Faith and Slavery in the Presbyterian Diaspora

Picturing Thoreau

Edited by William Harrison Taylor, Alabama State University, and Peter C. Messer, Mississippi State University

Henry David Thoreau in American Visual Culture By Mark W. Sullivan, Villanova University

Faith and Slavery in the Presbyterian Diaspora considers how, in areas as diverse as the New Hebrides, Scotland, East Central Africa, and the U.S., men’s and women’s shared Presbyterian faith conditioned their interpretations of and interactions with the institution of chattel slavery. The chapters highlight how Presbyterians’ reactions to slavery—which ranged from abolitionism, to indifference, to support— reflected their considered application of the principles of the Reformed Tradition to the institution. The collection reveals the ways in which Presbyterians framed the Reformed Tradition, making slavery a problematic issue for adherents to the faith.

Home and Homeland in Nineteenth-Century American Literature

Women Ethnographers and Native Women Storytellers

By John Dolis, Penn State University, Scranton

Relational Science, Ethnographic Collaboration, and Tribal Community

This book examines American literary texts whose portrayal of “American” identity involves the incorporation of a “foreign body” as the precondition for a comprehensive understanding of itself. This nexus of disconcerting textual dynamics arises precisely insofar as both citizen/ subject and national identity depend upon a certain alterity, an “other” which constitutes the secondary term of a binary structure. ”American” identity thus finds itself ironically con-fused and interwoven with another culture or another nation, double-crossed in the enactment of itself. Individual chapters are devoted to Benjamin Franklin, Washington Irving, Frederick Douglass, Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Mark Twain.

By Susan Berry Brill de Ramírez, Bradley University “In the tradition of the fine scholarship she has previously done in the field, de Ramírez makes an important contribution to American Indian literary studies. She makes a strong argument for the American Indian perspective that no life is lived in isolation, but rather within an interwoven network of human and non-human relationships. American Indian women’s autobiographies, if they are to be true to those from whom they come, must be inclusive of not only the other human voices that are part of our individual stories, but also those voices that emanate from the land itself.” —Kimberly Wieser, University of Oklahoma

Women Writing Cloth

The South Seas

By Mary Jo Bona, Stony Brook University

By Sean Brawley, Macquarie University, and Chris Dixon, University of Queensland

Migratory Fictions in the American Imaginary “Women Writing Cloth is a groundbreaking work of impressive scholarship and lucidity. Informed by an extensive command of ethnic literature and theory, migration studies, feminist scholarship and historical perspectives, this book develops relationships between needlework, verbal and visual art, and storytelling traditions across a broad spectrum of ethnicities and transnational experiences. It is a stunning contribution to our knowledge of women’s cultures and expressive forms. It provides a rare combination of a great depth of knowledge and coverage, and the capacity to open up a new dimension of inquiry. This is a brilliant, seminal book.” —Josephine Hendin, New York University

American Literature New

By R. C. De Prospo, Washington College of Maryland

By Mariana Machova, University of South Bohemia

The Latest Early American Literature

Elizabeth Bishop and Translation

Updating and expanding upon essays written over the past thirty years, De Prospo proposes not only negatively to critique how the latest scholarly receptions of early American literature differ insignificantly from the earlier ones, but positively to propose how a transnationalist concession—that as a neocolonial culture America’s lags behind that of Europe—might advance post-modern historiography by radically repositioning the past as no longer the present’s diachronic predecessor but, to quote Lyotard’s semiotics, its synchronic “differend.” De Prospo remains mindful of the pedagogical imperative that to save the texts of early American literature requires making them legible to average non-specialist.

“This is a vital addition to the libraries of all those interested in Elizabeth Bishop, and an exciting contribution to the theory of the lyric, which has yet to consider the central role of translation. The book is deeply researched and foregrounds Bishop’s work as a translator in several languages, bringing unfamiliar texts to light and raising important editorial questions about the contexts and versions of her translations. It shows us how central the idea of translation was to Bishop’s sense of poetry, and even of ethics and cognition.” —Bonnie Costello, Boston University 2016 • 182 pages 978-1-4985-2063-8 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2064-5 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

Juan de Castellanos’s Elegies of Illustrious Men of the Indies

Authority, Piracy, and Captivity in Colonial Spanish American Writing

Existentialist Thought in African American Literature before 1940

This collection breaks new ground in arguing that long before its classification by JeanPaul Sartre, African American literature embodied existentialist thought. To make its case, this daring book dissects eight notable texts: Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass and My Bondage and My Freedom, Sojourner Truth’s Ain’t I A Woman, Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents in the Life of A Slave Girl, Sutton E. Griggs’s Imperium in Imperio, James Weldon Johnson’s Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, and Nella Larsen’s Quicksand and Passing. It explores and addresses a wide range of complex philosophical concepts such as: authenticity, potentiality-for-authentic living, bad faith, and existentialism from the Christian point of view.

Martinez-Osorio examines the intricate bond between poetry and history writing that shaped the theory and practice of empire in early colonial Spanish-American society. He explores how epic and heroic poetry served to construe a new Spanish-American elite of original explorers and conquistadors in Juan de Castellanos’s Elegies of Illustrious Men of the Indies. Similarly, he offers an interpretation of Castellanos’s writings that shows his critical engagement with the reformist project postulated in Alonso de Ercilla’s LaAraucana.

Twentieth-Century American Poetry’s Engagement with the Past

Re-creating Paul Bowles, the Other, and the Imagination Music, Film, and Photography

By Raj Chandarlapaty, American University, Afghanistan

“This critical companion is significant for a number of reasons. First, it makes the world a little less lonesome. Readers of Vollmann now have a book that offers them the silent conversation of academic discourse.… Second, this book will help readers form a more nuanced understanding of Vollmann’s work, to look beyond superficial understandings of his public persona and to instead gaze deeply into the man and his work.” —Hysterical Realism

“Paul Bowles has been thoroughly discussed as a writer. He is best known as the author of The Sheltering Sky. Chandarlapaty looks at other dimensions of Bowles’s fame…. Chandarlapaty writes in depth about this major cultural figure, someone deserving the overworked label icon. The research in this book is impressive in the light of Bowles’s multidimensional talents.… This well-documented book will serve as a good contribution to the discussion. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Race, Nation, and Reform Ideology in Winnipeg, 1880s–1920s

By Kurt Korneski, Memorial University, Newfoundland

“This is an invaluable study of a key image in American culture before the Civil War: the trope of the starving artist as he was rejected by American society, encouraged by institutions, and represented in the lives of painters, sculptors and novelists, both real and fictional.” —Paul Staiti, Mount Holyoke College

This book considers the history of reform ideology in Canada. It does so by considering four leading reformers living in what might be described as the most Canadian of Canadian cities, Winnipeg. While the book engages in discussions surrounding the particular individuals it considers, its more general argument is that to understand the history of reform in Canada requires viewing reformers as simultaneously experiencing and responding to two basic phenomena simultaneously.

Mendenhall argues that Holmes helps us see the law through an Emersonian lens by the way in which he wrote his judicial dissents. Holmes’s literary style mimics and enacts two characteristics of Emerson’s thought: “superfluity” and the “poetics of transition.” Using this aesthetic style, Holmes not only made it more likely that his dissents would remain alive for future judges or justices, but also shaped our understanding of dissents and, in this, our understanding of law.

The Words in Action

Alexander Wilson

George Oppen

By Edward H. Burtt Jr., Ohio Wesleyan University

By Richard Swigg, independent scholar

This book examines the power of cross-disciplinary thinking. Alexander Wilson was a published poet, an accomplished musician, a skilled artist and an insightful observer. All these skills came together in his truly revolutionary text, American Ornithology, which is the founding document of American ornithology. The elegance of its writing, the novelty of its art, and the excellence of its science make Wilson’s Ornithology worth consulting even today, two centuries after its publication.

Richard Swigg breaks away from the general trend of Oppen studies studies and offers the reader a direct way into the visual and auditory dimension of the poems. Ranging across the entire span of the work, from the 1930s to the 1970s, he traces for the first time the full extent of Oppen’s engagement with the concrete world and his important poetic relationships with Charles Reznikoff, Denise Levertov, Charles Tomlinson and others.

By Iani del Rosario Moreno, Suffolk University “This is a book about theater in the context of space, specifically the borderland between Mexico and the US, a contended space once considered by the Spanish empire too remote to control…. The plays discussed showcase the encounter of unique subcultures, climatic moments providing a background against which frontier people define their daily struggle to survive. Detailed description of the plays and ancillary sociological and historical information are included, bringing the reader into the plays’ thematic complexity.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Edited by Peter S. Fosl, Transylvania University, and Michael J. McGandy and Mark D. Moorman, independent scholars This volume explores the many dimensions of the work of Joseph P. Fell. Drawing from continental sources such as Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre as well as North American thinkers such as John William Miller, Fell has secured a place as an enduring and important thinker within the tradition of phenomenological thought. Fell’s critical development of these strands of philosophy has resulted in a provocative and original challenge to complacent dualism, skepticism, alienation, and nihilism.

Sinclair Lewis and American Democracy By Steven Michels, Sacred Heart University

Elizabeth Bishop’s Prosaic

By Vidyan Ravinthiran, Durham University “Elizabeth Bishop’s Prosaic represents a compelling and fundamental breakthrough in Elizabeth Bishop scholarship as well as in the study of literary genre…. This book is highly ambitious in its rendering of Bishop’s nuanced poetics and prosaic style. The book is beautifully written, informed not just by Bishop critics but also by important and neglected poetry critics of the last 100 years…. Scholars and poets will delight on hundreds of pithy observations, fresh readings and analyses.” —Elizabeth Bishop Society

“Michels intelligently discusses all of Lewis’s novels, from the well-known like Main Street and Arrowsmith to the lesser known like The God-Seeker and Work of Art, through the lens of political philosophy, showing how seriously Lewis thought about democracy in his fiction. Lewis would like his characters to be better and more engaged citizens of the republic, but is aware of how hard it is to do well and make life meaningful.” —Sally Parry, Sinclair Lewis Society Series: Politics, Literature, & Film

Critical Essays on the Poetry of Martín Espada

T. S. Eliot and Christian Tradition

The essays illuminate the all-important influence of the French Catholic writers Eliot came to know in Paris, including Gide, Claudel, and Philippe. The keynote of Eliot’s cultural and political writings is his belief that religion and culture are integrally related. This collection presents the subject of Eliot’s religious beliefs in rich detail, from a number of different perspectives, demonstrating its complexity.

Acknowledged Legislator

Edited by Edward J. Carvalho, DeVry University, Philadelphia “This collection offers a comprehensive biographicalcritical study of a poet who could be considered the unofficial voice of marginal Latinos. He writes from the perspective of a first generation Nuyorican who experienced overt racial discrimination.… Another of the book’s critical focuses is Espada’s pro-independence poetry in support of a Puerto Rican nation. This volume introduces readers to the complex colonialist history that promoted the imposition of American citizenship on Puerto Ricans. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

Clyde Fitch and the American Theatre

By Liliana M. Naydan, Penn State Abington

Naydan considers the way contemporary American authors address belief in the post-9/11 Age. She suggests that after 9/11, fiction by Mohsin Hamid, Laila Halaby, Philip Roth, Don DeLillo, John Updike, and Barbara Kingsolver dramatizes and works to resolve impasses that exist between believers of different kinds at the extremes. Naydan argues that these authors function as literary theologians of sorts and forge a relevant space beyond or between extremes.

New Confluence Narratives

Ethnicity, History, and Nation-Making in the Americas By Antonio Luciano Tosta, University of Kansas

Luciano examines a new literary genre that links the Americas together through three common historical experiences: colonization, slavery, and immigration. Informed by postcolonial theory, this book analyzes a selection of novels from North and South Americas to discuss the impact of ethnicity in the construction of national identities, highlight the inherently transcultural aspect of the American character, and to problematize the concept of the contemporary nation.

Blackness as Strategy for Social Change

Voice, Vision, Politics, and Performance in U.S. Contemporary Women’s Poetics

The Twenty-first Century African American Novel and the Critique of Whiteness in Everyday Life

Jayne Cortez, Adrienne Rich, and the Feminist Superhero

Edited by Laura Hinton, City College of New York

By E. Lâle Demirtürk, Bilkent University

“This new book creates a fissure at the ontological core of whiteness and underscores the humanity and agency of Black people. Demirtürk engages a critical literary corpus by African American novelists who not only understand the urgency that Black lives matter, but who also bear witness to the complexity of everyday Black ontology that dares to lay claim to its own selfunderstanding in the face of insidious operations of whiteness.” —George Yancy, Emory University

“This is a moving tribute to two courageous women poets and a brilliant argument for a redefinition of what constitutes ‘heroism’ in relation to engaged and feminist poetics. This exceptional volume brings together for the first time these great contemporaries who never met. The range of scholars included is impressive, and the essays—addressing not only aesthetics but also issues of gender, race and sexuality—are riveting.” —Cynthia Hogue, Arizona State University

Bragg takes an important first step in helping us tear down imagined barriers between differing communities of readers who appreciate the ways African American women writers render the full range of these communities’ experiences in narrative.” —Dana Williams, Howard University 2016 • 140 pages 978-1-4985-0714-1 • $39.99 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-8878-1 • $79.00 / £52.95 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7391-8879-8 • $39.99 / £24.95 • eBook

“In examining Du Bois, Doku artfully exposes the historical exigencies of imperialism, colonialism, segregation, and injustice, primarily in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. The first half of the book concentrates on two major historical novels—The Quest of the Silver Fleece and Dark Princess. The second half gives a historical and practical account of Pan-Africanism and global recognition of human rights. The author looks at the historical, political, and sociological implications of cosmopolitanism as the ultimate political and moral goal of humanity. An original contribution to Africana studies and the sociology of diaspora, this book offers a genuinely interdisciplinary analysis of Du Bois’s literary fiction.….

Father–Daughter Incest in Twentieth-Century American Literature

The Complex Trauma of the Wound and the Voiceless By Christine Grogan, Pennsylvania State University, University Park

This interdisciplinary study rereads father-daughter incest narratives of the last hundred years to argue for the importance of literature in representing not just circumscribed, singular traumatic events, but for giving voice to chronic and cumulative, or complex, traumatic experiences. Contributing to the work of the second-wave of trauma theory, this book responds in part to the psychological community, which failed to include complex PTSD in the DSM-5.

Literature of the UK and Ireland At Work in the Early Modern English Theater

Valuing Labor

By Matthew Kendrick, William Paterson University “Kendrick is willing to go father and be more explicitly in his Marxist analysis than has been typical of scholars writing on similar topics. Though this study is not the first to argue that the early modern period is more than simply a precursor to the development of oppositional classes during the industrial era, it makes a particularly thoughtful and often refreshingly polemical case that the absence of a fully formed bourgeoisie and proletariat during the period should not be confused with laborers’ passivity to the commodification and alienation of their labor.” —Comparative Drama

Avant-Garde Hamlet

New in Paperback

Text, Stage, Screen

Stage Mothers

By R. S. White, University of Western Australia Hamlet stands as a high water mark of canonical art, yet it has equally attracted rebels and experimenters, those avantgarde writers, dramatists, performers, and filmmakers who, in their adaptations and appropriations, seek new ways of expressing innovative and challenging thoughts in the hope that they can change perceptions of their own world. This partially explains the uncanny ability of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to be “ever-now, ever-new.”

Tercentenary Essays on Laurence Sterne

Close Reading without Readings

Edited by Peter de Voogd, emeritus, University of Utrecht, Judith Hawley, University of London, and Melvyn New, emeritus, University of Florida

By Stephen Booth, University of California, Berkeley “This collection of 13 essays includes some heretofore unpublished works. As a deconstructionist pioneer, Booth discusses the unsettled meanings in literary works, and insists that readers must be attentive to primary texts. Booth offers, for example, close readings of Julius Caesar—a play that ‘makes fools of its audience’—and the ‘editor-made text’ of Hamlet. Booth also explores Marlowe’s Hero and Leander, Milton’s Paradise Lost, and Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet, The Winter’s Tale, Twelfth Night, and Othello…. A demanding writer, Booth admits to offering ‘painful exercises’ in these readings and unapologetically commands readers to ‘engage in some themselves.’ Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Theatre of Death

Emotional-Realist Acting and Contemporary Performance

Rituals of Justice from the English Civil Wars to the Restoration

By Cary M. Mazer, University of Pennsylvania

By P.J. Klemp, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh This book discusses some rituals of justice— such as public executions, printed responses to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s execution speech, and King Charles I’s treason trial—in early modern England. Focusing on the ways in which genres shape these events’ multiple voices, it analyzes the rituals’ genres and the diverse perspectives to understand them. The centerpiece of the mid-seventeenth-century’s theatre of death was the condemned man’s last dying utterance. This study focuses on the words and contexts of many of those final speeches, including King Charles I’s (1649), Archbishop William Laud’s (1645), and the Earl of Strafford’s (1641), as well less well known royalists and regicides.

Forging a Royal Mandate

Shakespeare between Machiavelli and Hobbes

By William F. Zak, emeritus, Salisbury University “Zak pokes holes in all the arguments of Hamlet adulators, portraying the Danish prince as self-centered, prone to ‘risk both his private and the public’s good,’ and having an ‘unacknowledged beam’ in his own eye even as he castigates his mother and stepfather for having motes in theirs. Zak finds Hamlet’s revenge flawed from inception, as the prince seeks extremes rather than compromises.... His book is a provocative, stimulating minority report in the tradition of Harold Goddard’s sometimes infuriating but always cogent The Meaning of Shakespeare (1951). Zak grounds his contention in past and current Shakespeare scholarship, agreeing with Paul Kottman’s sense for Shakespeare as anti-Romantic.... Recommended.” —CHOICE

Shakespeare’s Dramatic Persons By Travis Curtright, Ave Maria University

By William F. Zak, emeritus, Salisbury University “Zak’s new book on Antony and Cleopatra begins where his most recent study, A Mirror for Lovers, left off: with a discussion of the sonnets. This is a natural move since he regards these two texts as the second and third installments in a Shakespearean sequence on love, lust, and narcissism that began with Venus and Adonis.… Toward the end of his book, Zak formulates the normative framework of temperate love that seems to form the backbone of his argument. True lovers, he argues, are capable of commingling love and strife.... There is something to be said for this piece of practical wisdom, as for many other arguments in this interesting and illuminating book.” —Renaissance Quarterly

“In 1615, John Webster famously observed of ‘the excellent actor’ that ‘whatsoever is commendable to the grave orator is most exquisitely perfect in him.’ In this thoroughly persuasive book, Travis Curtright demonstrates that playwrights, like excellent actors, were accomplished rhetoricians; that Shakespeare, in different ways over the course of his career, created dramatic characters from the building blocks of formal rhetorical devices; and that how characters speak and argue and persuade create the illusion of psychology, emotion, inwardness, and subjectivity. There is no other book like it.” —Cary M. Mazer, University of Pennsylvania Series: Shakespeare and the Stage

“Numerous recent investigations… seek to place the Bard more within the context of the early modern era. Artese turns her eye in the other direction. She wishes to unearth how folktales inform some of the plays in the canon.… Artese is at her strongest when examining how a number of playwrights of Shakespeare’s time engage in a ‘conversation’ on the folklore. There is, for instance, a robust discussion of the interplay of Thomas Nashe, Thomas Dekker, and John Webster…. Highly recommended. ” —CHOICE

Setting aside such fraught questions as the history of Renaissance subjectivity and individualism on the one hand and Shakespearean exceptionalism on the other, he shows that in some plays a conception has been evidenced of who a particular person is, and has been used to drive the action.

The Gay King in Fiction, 1590–1640

Making the Early Modern English Nation

Edward II and a Literature of Same-Sex Love By Michael G. Cornelius, Wilson College

Of Memory and Literary Form By Kyle Pivetti, Norwich University

“This is a well-researched, well-organized, and overall important analysis of representations of same-sex love in early modern English literature.” —Jerry Pierce, Penn State Hazleton

Across readings of late sixteenth to midseventeenth century works, Kyle Pivetti argues that the writers of early modern England found in literary forms—including dumb shows, allegory, and rhyme—the means to construct national memory.

“Here is an enchanting, fabulous, and innovative account of the gay king in fiction; Michael G. Cornelius succeeds in putting together a thorough examination of chronicle sources and earlier texts, as they all come together to communicate a gay identity. Queer dreams were certainly made of Edward II.” —Anna Foka, Umeå University

Essential Scots and the Idea of Unionism in Anglo-Scottish Literature, 1603–1832

Malory’s Anatomy of Chivalry

Characterization in the Morte Darthur

By Paul Rovang, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

By Rivka Swenson, Virginia Commonwealth University

“Swenson carries the reader into new critical territory through a series of deft readings. The meaning of Scottishness—understood as a kind of kernel or essence, however empty or malleable—changes over time as it does different work in the hands of different authors and at different historical moments. A sophisticated, thought-provoking addition. Indeed, Essential Scots serves notice that this sub-field has clearly come of age.” —Evan Gottlieb, Oregon State

“Each chapter treats a character found in Malory’s Morte Darthur. This study of Malory’s construction of character focuses on the roles that chivalry, kingship, and womanhood play in shaping a character’s trajectory over the course of the text. Rovang is a good close reader of Malory, and… the chapters benefit from his familiarity with the characters, plots, subplots, and themes that abound in the Morte.” —CHOICE

Spenser in the Moment

Edited by Paul J. Hecht, Purdue University North Central, and J. B. Lethbridge, Tübingen University

Jonathan Swift and Philosophy

Edited by Janelle Pötzsch, Ruhr-Universität Bochum

“Hecht and Lethbridge see themselves as spearheading a movement that will replace the orthodoxies of New Criticism (and New Historicism) with unorthodox, revolutionary ways of reading Spenser’s poetry.... The promised ‘new era of Spenser scholarship’ takes shape in the final section, with Hecht’s essay ‘Queer/ Ordinary: Thinking Spenserian Sex and Aesthetics,’ Lethbridge’s extension of his case against ‘expressivist’ reading, and Gordon Teskey’s bravura display on The Faerie Queene as ‘a poem of moments.’... Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“This fascinating collection testifies to Swift’s important place in the history of ideas, despite him once joking that ‘all notions too abstracted / Are like the ravings of a crackt head’. These provocative and lucidly-written essays range across the Swift canon, positioning his works in intense dialogue with other key Enlightenment thinkers on issues of ethics, science and politics. Most significantly, Pötzsch reveals to us an enduring writer whose works speak profoundly to the debates of today.” —Greg Lynall, University of Liverpool 2016 • 292 pages 978-1-4985-2153-6 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2154-3 • $94.99 / £65.00 • eBook

Irish Blow-In

Ireland, Scotland, and the Novel of Inheritance, 1798–1832

Jonathan Swift

Disputed Titles

By Eugene Hammond, Stony Brook University “This is a remarkable book. It gives us a comprehensive biography that supplies a sense of both Swift’s daily life and the intellectual contexts in which he wrote his major and minor works. Hammond compellingly presents its subject as first and foremost a civic activist, a man who wrote to live rather than living to write. This biography is important and persuasive, deeply learned, careful, and engaging. It will be a landmark in Swift studies.” —Ashley Marshall, University of Nevada, Reno

By Natasha Tessone, Oberlin College

Disputed Titles argues for the centrality of inheritance—often impeded, disrupted inheritance—to the novel’s rise to preeminence in Britain during the Romantic period. Novels by Maria Edgeworth, Sydney Owenson, Charles Maturin, Walter Scott, and John Galt are densely populated by orphans, changelings, and lost and kidnapped heirs, and privilege a romance plot of dispossession that undermines the illusion of continuity implicit in the very concept of legacy.

Borrowed Imagination

“This erudite study is the genesis of careful consideration over some years. Attar brings to bear an impressive array of works by the British Romantic poets and Islamic-Arab sources…. Attar’s work is a major step toward rectifying the lacuna in acknowledging and recognizing Arab-Islamic influences on Western literature…. It not only widens our understanding of the Romantic poets and their work but also draws attention to the centuries old interaction of West and East.” —Arab Studies Quarterly

Multiliterate Ireland examines a selection of Irish literature to illuminate a legacy of a multilingual history, demonstrated through works that range from past centuries to the present era. This study examines authors who utilized two or more languages in the same poem, play, or work of fiction.

Accounting for the Self

Merging Travel, Theory, and Commentary

Defoe’s Major Fiction

Mandeville’s Travails

By Elizabeth R. Napier, Middlebury College

By Francis Tobienne Jr., South University, Tampa Mandeville’s Travails challenges the less than serious stereotyping of travel as both genre and theoretical framework. Instead, and by examining the position of travel, a deeper sense of the human species can be appreciated beyond the displaced borders of language, ritual, and culture.

“Napier’s study of Daniel Defoe is literary criticism at its best: attentive to text, informed (but not dominated) by theory, written in lucid—indeed lyrical—prose. Napier begins with Defoe’s complicated invocations of genre in the major fiction.… Napier moves on to chapters centered on dominant versions of the self in Defoe…. Napier’s elegant, comprehensive, judicious study fully convinces that accounting for the self is a central concern of Defoe’s major fiction. Essential.” —CHOICE

The Ladies of Llangollen

The Collected Poems of Laurence Whyte

By Fiona Brideoake, American University

The poetry of Laurence Whyte provides a fascinating window into the literary, political, and musical cultures of eighteenth-century Ireland. Situating Whyte as a missing link between the poetic styles and political world views of Jonathan Swift and Oliver Goldsmith, this edition of Whyte’s collected poems, extensively introduced and annotated, brings his engaging, witty, and poignant work to a new readership.

This book explores the lives and afterlives of Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Sarah Ponsonby, whose 1778 elopement rendered them pivotal figures in the history of female same-sex desire. Butler and Ponsonby’s shared life embodied a form of queer celebrity constituted by their notably visible remoteness to erotic legibility. Their queerness further discloses the provisionality of the varied critical and political movements that have claimed them as ancestors in order to sustain their own subject positions.

“A poet himself, Greenway points out in his introduction that Thomas is known for his difficulty and his sonority and that his poetic diction has long been ‘a source of critical debate.’ Throughout this analysis/appreciation of Thomas’s work, Greenway focuses on the tension between the simplicity of his vocabulary and the ‘difficulty’ of his poetry....

A Memoir of Growing Up

The Political Thought of a Man of Letters

The Deep End

Aldous Huxley

By Mary Rose Callaghan, Irish novelist and biographer

By Alessandro Maurini, University of Turin

“Don’t be surprised if you read The Deep End all in one sitting, laughing often, feeling deeply moved. Callaghan has a gift for selecting details. She paints a poignant picture of her childhood and adolescence, but by the end of the book, her reader has also gained a remarkable sense of what it felt like to live in Ireland during the last half of the twentieth century.” —Jeanne Murray Walker, University of Delaware

Maurini argues that Huxley is not a man of letters engaged in politics, but a political thinker who chooses literature to spread his ideas. His preference for the dystopian genre is due to his belief in the tremendous impact of dystopia on twentieth-century political thought. Huxley clearly grasped the unsolved issues of contemporary liberalism, and the importance of his influence on many twentieth-century and present-day political thinkers ensures that his ideas remain indispensable in the current liberal-democratic debate.

Descendants of Waverley

New

By Martha F. Bowden, Kennesaw State University

Texts and Contexts

Romancing History in Contemporary Historical Fiction Bowden examines contemporary novelists’ combination of historical authority and narrative to create the “romance of history,” authentic and accessible depictions of the past. Rooted in histories of the novel, but challenging conventional theories that the novel erased the romance, the work treats Walter Scott as an important influence on the genre and analyzes the strategies used to romance history in the varied subgenres constituting current historical fiction.

Evelyn Waugh’s Satire By Naomi Milthorpe, University of Tasmania Waugh is a perennial subject for literary scholars; most studies published in the past thirty years take a strongly biographical approach, using Waugh’s life and faith as lenses through which to critique the fiction. Evelyn Waugh’s Satire takes a different approach: using frameworks of modernist studies, intertextuality, satire theory, and the contexts of the interwar period, Milthorpe renews debates about the targets and tactics of Waugh’s satire.

Genesis B and the Comedic Imperative By John F. Vickrey emeritus, Lehigh University

“Vickrey seeks to establish that the Anglo-Saxon poetic fragment known as Genesis B, dealing with the fall of Eve and Adam, was composed in conformity with the Christian ‘happy ending’ of human salvation from that original sin through Christ. In particular, he seeks to discredit critics who espouse the ‘exonerative’ reading of the poem as treating that act as merely a lapse of judgment, while God remains a remote and inscrutable deity….

“Pears provides unprecedented insights into the ways in which the paratext participates in the process of making meaning when it comes to reading and interpreting works of literature by women writers with a connection to Algeria. She compels us in this fascinating study to consider these literary creations as a whole, taking into account the complex factors that contribute to the presentation of works by Nina Bouraoui, Assia Djebar, and Malika Mokeddem.” —H-France Review

“Presenting her readers with an insightful analysis of the works of the first generation of women writers of Gabon, Cheryl Toman examines the ways in which the writers articulate the economic, political and social issues of their society and depict the richness of their unique cultural heritage. Arguing that Gabonese women writers have not received the attention they merit, she confirms the unique contributions of Gabonese women writers to contemporary African literature.” —Mildred Mortimer, University of Colorado

Art and Ritual in the Black Diaspora

New

Engaging the Shoah through the Poetry of Dan Pagis Memory and Metaphor

Griffith examines residually oral conventions that shape the black diaspora imaginary in the Caribbean and America. His central focus is hermeneutical, examining the way in which religious and secular symbols inherent in rite and word as in vodun, limbo, the spirituals, puttin’ on ole massa, and dramatic and narrative structures, for example, are made basic to the liberating post-colonial struggle. This evident interpenetration of political and religious visions looks back to death-rebirth traditions through which African groups made sense of the intervention of evil into social order.

By Shellie Gordon McCullough, University of Texas, Dallas “This book offers McCullough’s path-breaking study of Dan Pagis’ philosophical-literary poetry. She discusses and explicates Pagis’ reaction to the trauma of the Holocaust and analyzes in depth the poet’s difficult yet powerful lyrical approach, demonstrating both his concepts of the limits of representation and the end of the Jewish people after the Holocaust.” —Zsuzsanna Ozsvath, University of Texas at Dallas Analyzing the Holocaust poetry of Pagis and correlating it to his biography through the identifying tropes of his literature, McCullough reveals that the speakers of Pagis’ poems embody a resistance to traditional historical, temporal, and structural narratives while outlining the scarring effects of trauma continually revisited through poetic engagement.

Steve Biko

Decolonial Meditations of Black Consciousness By Tendayi Sithole, University of South Africa

“Sithole’s critical decolonial foray into the liberatory ideas of Steve Biko is pioneering and refreshing in many ways.” —Sabelo J. NdlovuGatsheni, author of The Decolonial Mandela

Receptions of the Classics in the African Diaspora of the Hispanophone and Lusophone Worlds Atlantis Otherwise

Edited by Elisa Rizo, Iowa State University, and Madeleine M. Henry, Purdue University

“This book is a profound ground-breaking account of Biko’s philosophy from a decolonial epistemic perspective hitherto unheard of. It is testimony to the relevance and ever growing reemergence of Biko and the Black Consciousness philosophy in a country still suffering from antiblack racism, Nelson Mandela’s efforts at racial reconciliation notwithstanding. Sithole’s book is therefore a must-read to understand the confluence of existentialism and decolonial theory in Biko’s philosophy of Black subjectivity in an antiblack society.” —Mabogo Percy More, University of KwaZulu-Natal

“Atlantis Otherwise is essential reading for anyone interested in classical receptions in Latin America and the African Diaspora. The essays in Atlantis Otherwise meditate profoundly upon the dynamics of intertextuality, the uses and abuses of classical antiquity, and the politics of exchange in postcolonial contexts. These six case studies are poignant in their investigations of race, national politics, and identity and each is germane to our present socio-political moment. I expect that scholars of classics, Latin American studies, and Africana studies will welcome this volume with enthusiasm.” —Jesse Weiner, Hamilton College

Howell argues that comics provide an alternative to textbook representations of the Algerian War in France because they draw from similar source materials yet produce narratives significantly different. She demonstrates that while comics rely on conventional vectors of memory like education, the family, and mainstream media, they can also create new dialogues using these vectors in ways unavailable to traditional textbooks.

“Chen Hengzhe fills a significant gap in the study of modern Chinese cultural and intellectual history. Despite her status as China’s first female university professor and China’s first modern short story writer, Chen Hengzhe has never been the subject of sustained scholarly inquiry. Dr Gimpel’s exhaustively researched monograph, which analyses in depth both Chen’s literary writings and her scholarly writings, has rectified this situation in a most convincing manner.” —Michel Hockx, University of London

“Traveling Texts is the best book published to date on Afro-Japanese hybridity. The book brims with critical insights into a history of collaboration, exchange, borrowing, and homage perfectly pitched to its subject. From Amiri Baraka’s ‘low coup’ poems to Japanese rastafari, the book listens in on a noisy creolization across the Black Pacific. A brilliant and necessary remix for our times.” —Bill V.

She proposes that postcolonial literary studies needs to take more account of the way in which the new configuration of dominance— increasingly gathered under the umbrella term of neoliberalism—works in concert with, rather than against, assertions of cultural identity on the part of historically subordinated groups.

Performance, Politics, and the Transformation of the Theatrical Canon

By Willard Bohn, Illinois State University

Staging France between the World Wars

Reading Apollinaire’s Alcools Apollinaire is generally considered to be one of the very best modern poets writing in any language. Published in 1913, Alcools is his most important book of poetry and continues to be highly influential. This book provides a detailed analysis for seventeen of the most important poems in Alcools and includes a state-of-theart survey of current Apollinaire criticism.

By Susan McCready, University of South Alabama

“This is first-rate scholarship on the history of theater and performance that brings us to a new understanding of the French stage—and its radical transformation—during the interwar years (1918-1940). McCready argues convincingly that the period’s modernist directors revolutionized theatrical production, transformed the metteuren-scène into an artiste in his own right, and reenvisioned the French dramatic canon.” —Michael Garval, North Carolina State University

New State Power, Stigmatization, and Youth Resistance Culture in the French Banlieues Uncanny Citizenship

Involuntary Confessions of the Flesh in Early Modern France

By Nora Martin Peterson, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Involuntary Confessions of the Flesh in Early Modern France is an interdisciplinary study of moments in which the early modern body loses control of its surface. Rather than read these moments as forerunners to the Freudian slip, it suggests that these moments are vital players in shaping various early modern discourses. This book pairs literary texts with religious, legal, and courtly documents in order to highlight the urgency and messiness of the relationships between body, self, and text.

By Hervé Tchumkam, Southern Methodist University “Uncanny Citizenship provides a key to understanding the genesis of these issues in France, built on a framework of literary, philosophical, sociological, political, and historical theories.... This book is an excellent entrée to the debate about violence, citizenship, identity, and representations of Muslims in France. Indeed, its various contributions improve the academic discourse and open new venues for French banlieues literature as well. I highly recommend it.” —African Studies Quarterly

Liberty, Individuality, and Democracy in Jorge Luis Borges

New

By Alejandra M. Salinas, Universidad Tres de Febrero

Playing the Martyr

Theater and Theology in Early Modern France By Christopher Semk, Yale University

Playing the Martyr

Playing the Martyr is the first English-language book devoted to the productive encounter between theater and religion in early modern France. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Playing the Martyr investigates how early modern playwrights and critics engaged with religion both on stage and off in order to reflect on the nature of theater.

This book analyzes Borges’s works through a political rather than a literary or cultural lens. It explores how Borges’s politically inspired works make the case for individual liberty against political oppression, militarism, and populism and examines the evolution of Borges’s democratic sensitivity by relating it to salient historical events.

Creating Albert Camus

By Robert Ziegler, emeritus, University of Montana

Foundations and Explorations of His Philosophy of Communication

“Ziegler scrutinizes Mirbeau’s more personal impulses: his overlooked spiritual yearnings, his interest in mystery, and his search for the transcendental. Ziegler devotes chapters to various eras of Mirbeau’s literary production, from his early autobiographical novels and his unfinished manuscript Dans le ciel to his antiChristian novels (Jardin des supplices and Journal d’une femme de chambre) and his later fiction on cars, pets, and neurasthenia…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Edited by Brent C. Sleasman, Winebrenner Theological Seminary “A most solid collection of critical essays. Sleasman and his contributors demonstrate Camus’s continued relevance to human life as it currently is lived in chapters that should have immediate appeal to philosophers, historians, and literary critics, as well as other readers looking to expand their vocabulary on Camus’s life and art. The volume will obviously attract those invested in the philosophy of communication as well.” —H-France Review

The Other Rise of the Novel in Eighteenth-Century French Fiction By Olivier Delers, University of Richmond

Acting Up

“Delers positions his account of the rise of the modern novel as an alternative to the account of Ian Watt and other social theorists for whom, as Delers writes in the introduction, ‘the novel is the literary vehicle best equipped to convey through its characters and storylines the perfect rationality of homo economicus.’ Looking at six French novels of the 17th and 18th centuries, the author argues that rather than map the progress of modern economic transactions in the ‘real’ world, the novels portray characters who develop alternative economies that are increasingly unrealistic …. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Staging the Subject in Enlightenment France

By Jeffrey M. Leichman, Louisiana State University Acting concentrated both the aspirations and anxieties of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century France, where theater was a defining element of urban sociability. In Acting Up, Jeffrey M. Leichman argues for a new understanding of the relationship between performance and self. Innovative interpretations of La Chaussée, Rousseau, Diderot, Rétif, Beaumarchais, and others demonstrate how the figure of the actor threatened ancien régime moral hierarchies by decoupling affect from emotion.

Claude Simon

Life Writing and Transversality in the Essais By Alison Calhoun, Indiana University

Fashioning the Past by Writing the Present

By Alina Cherry, Wayne State University This book considers the aesthetic, cultural, and philosophical facets of a temporal paradox in the works of French novelist Claude Simon (19132005), and its broader implications for the study of narrative, and for cultural and post-modern theory. Cherry examines the present of writing holistically— that is both as a stylistic device and within the thematic context of Simon’s works—in order to assess its capacity for becoming an instrument of ontological and epistemological inquiry.

Corruptions of Memory

Eighteenth-Century Escape Tales

By Richard J. Golsan, Texas A&M University

Between Fact and Fiction

“Americans, still haunted by their Civil War of a century and a half ago, should not be surprised that the French bear an even fresher wound from the defeat of 1940 and their conflicting responses to German occupation. Golsan’s books have been wise guides to the unending replay of these pains in French politics and culture, and this carries his work forward into the twenty-first century with his customary thoughtful care.” —Robert O. Paxton, Columbia University

Edited by Michael J. Mulryan, Christopher Newport University, and Denis D. Grélé, University of Memphis This volume is a study of the interdisciplinary nature of prison escape tales and their impact on European cultural identity in the eighteenth century. Contemporary readers identified with the heroism such works promoted, because escape heroes most often define themselves via their confrontation with the arbitrary power of the sovereign, prefiguring the boldness of the French Revolution.

Emigrant Dreams, Immigrant Borders

Migrants, Transnational Encounters, and Identity in Spain By Raquel Vega-Durán, Claremont McKenna College

Cervantes’s Novelas ejemplares

Reading their Lessons from His Time to Ours By William H. Clamurro, Emporia State University

This interdisciplinary book offers a fresh way to understand present-day Spain in relation to its African and Latin American migrants. It combines readings of a large range of cultural works with a clear understanding of political, historical, and social context, in order to rethink migrant identities, their complex cultural representations, and the transnational conceptions of Spain that emerge from the encounter with the foreigner. It offers new comprehensive theories on the border and the Other.

“Clamurro… considers recent criticism of the texts and reflects on the structure and significance of the individual works and of the collection. Clamurro has viewed the novellas as rich, suggestive, and complex, but here he seems more committed to defining multiple options for contextualization…. One conclusion is that social and cultural conventions in the Novelas ejemplares are meticulously plotted and presented in a manner to reveal points of contact between early modern Spanish life and contemporary concerns.… Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

In so doing, the study offers innovative insights into the politics of such classic authors as Ludovico Ariosto, Garcilaso de la Vega, Jorge de Montemayor, Miguel de Cervantes, and María de Zayas as it teases out the nuances of their often indirect portrayals of their relationship with the Crown.

Edited by Ryan A. Davis, Illinois State University, and Alicia Cerezo Paredes, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Antonio Muñoz Molina is one of several contemporary authors who have closely coupled the development of their literary characters to urban perambulations. Their biographic growth, cultural and social adaptations, as well as epistemological insights are so dependent on flanerie that his texts warrant the designation flaneur literature. This study examines not only the mobility of his characters but also draws attention to intercultural aspects of his flaneur literature which lie both in a uniquely Spanish perspective on flanerie as well as in engagements with cultural otherness.

Sovereign Power and the Enlightenment Eighteenth-Century Literature and the Problem of the Political

By Peter DeGabriele, Mississippi State University DeGabriele examines the role of eighteenth-century writers in developing a vision of political modernity that questions traditional narratives about the rise of liberalism and the decline of sovereign power. It provides a new way to link the literature and philosophy of the period with the meditations on violence and sovereignty that preoccupy much of the political philosophy of today.

A Political Genealogy of Joseph Conrad By Richard Ruppel, Chapman University

“Ruppel proposes a much-needed critical intervention into Conrad’s complicated and ambivalent engagement with political discourse and ideology, particularly in the major novels. Surveying the criticism surrounding Conradian politics, Ruppel finds that previous critics unjustly pigeonholed Conrad as a profoundly conservative, even reactionary, writer. Arguing vigorously against this time-honored truism, Ruppel contends that the émigré polyglot’s political ideas and leanings were ‘radically contingent,’ particularly in relation to the audience he envisioned for himself.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Worlds of Hungarian Writing

Edited by András Kiséry, City College of New York; Zsolt Komáromy, Eötvös Loránd University; and Zsuzsanna Varga, University of Glasgow

Gendered Testimonies of the Holocaust By Petra M. Schweitzer, Shenandoah University “This sensitive and affirming work offers profound insights into the complexities and possibilities of survival. In exquisite readings of texts that emerge from the Holocaust, Schweitzer shows us how writing and survival are inextricably linked, and how the specificity of one historical event can teach us about the struggles with survival that extend beyond it. This compelling book is ultimately an affirmation of life from the very heart of death, and of writing in an era of catastrophic history.” —Cathy Caruth, Cornell University

Worlds of Hungarian Writing responds to the growing interest in Hungarian authors throughout the English-speaking world. The essays highlight the intercultural contexts that have molded the conventions, genres and institutions of Hungarian writing from the nineteenth century to the present. They map ways in which modern literature is produced by encounters with languages, cultures, and external media.

The Meaning of Earth

A Reading of Lucretius’ De Rerum Natura

By Lucas Murrey, independent scholar

By Lee Fratantuono, Ohio Wesleyan University

“Murrey has produced a visionary adaptation of the Nietzschean Dionysiac to illuminate the dysfunctionality of twenty-first century capitalism.” —Richard Seaford, University of Exeter

“The cause of Lucretian scholarship is brilliantly served by the addition of this meticulously crafted volume to the expanding corpus on one of the most challenging and difficult of the ancient Latin poets. Those familiar with Fratantuono’s earlier volumes… will discover that the present title reinforces Fratantuono’s technique of verse-byverse analysis and commentary, here with respect to Lucretius’s formidable De rerum natura…. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“As a new contemporary interpreter of Nietzsche, Lucas Murrey offers a critical analysis of the catastrophes that the German philosopher prophesised. Murrey’s historical placement of Nietzsche that, on the one hand, looks explicitly backward to the poetry of Friedrich Hölderlin and, on the other hand, implicitly forward to the poetry of Stefan George, opens new doors of thought.” —Bernhard Böschenstein, Université de Genève,

Drawing on Chela Sandoval’s ‘methodology of the oppressed,’ del Rio carefully examines the work of Caribbean writers and artists and demonstrates how their particular representation of queer and transgendered bodies productively disrupts dominant notions of national identity and authority.” —Dara E.

Uniting Blacks in a Raceless Nation

Decolonizing Indigeneity

This well-researched work sheds light on many unknown dimensions of his life, poetry, and struggle. Equally, it is a study of the black rights movement in Cuba…. It is the best biography of Guillén.” —The Washington BookReview

Decolonizing Indigeneity

While contemporary scholars have taken a great interest in diversity or heterogeneity, this model is relatively new and literature of the past is still crying out for its place in the diversity model.

“Bell-Villada’s new essay collection provides much for students and specialists alike, offering an array of critical approaches with which to spar, ranging from the contextual, biographical, literary and literaryhistorical to the ecocritical, demythifying and on occasion densely theoretical. Particularly welcome is the volume’s emphasis on García Márquez’s later writing.” —Clive Griffin, emeritus, University of Oxford

“While a number of critics of the Latin American New Novel have identified and interpreted a range of inverted Christian images, the originality of this book is that it brings together such instances in order to identify a pattern or trend that actually characterizes twentieth-century Latin American fiction. This is an important and overdue contribution to mainstream conceptions of the nueva narrativa.” —Philip Swanson, University of Sheffield

It is a piercing root critique of governing ideas and the social conditions that produce them at a time when critique itself has become the target of accommodationist thinkers in order to sideline such un-assembling of the social. It argues not for freedom from humanism or post-humanism, but for a future free from wage labor.” —Peter McLaren, Northeast Normal University, China

In an ever-changing world, the growth in textual and digital literacy, coupled with social media, has provided expanded opportunities for ethnic women to present their stories of communities and bordered/borderless identities. Intertwined and emergent themes in ethnic women’s writing are of international importance as they highlight changing and redefining women writers’ sense of what constitutes a community.

Expression as Mimesis and Event

By Richard Serrano, Rutgers University

Qur’an and the Lyric Imperative

Literary Worlds and Deleuze By Zornitsa Dimitrova, independent scholar

Literary Worlds and Deleuze

Dimitrova contributes to debates on mimesis by offering an ‘expressionist’ take on the matter of the generation of literary worlds in drama. In examining postdramatic plays by Sarah Kane, Martin Crimp, Caryl Churchill, and Laura Wade, she outlines a dynamic ontology of mimesis. Rather than pertaining to a static ontology of ‘being’, expressionist mimesis is generative and renews itself constantly without arriving at an entelechial end. In exploring the fluxional field of forces and relations that underlie the order of representation, expressionist mimesis is well suited to account for the ontologically uncertain realities of postdramatic theatre. 2016 • 278 pages 978-1-4985-4437-5 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4438-2 • $89.99 / £60.00 • eBook

“Serrano’s study counts as one of the five most important contemporary works on the Qur’an, precisely because it’s not on the Qur’an per se. It is about the process of constructing meaning—the interstices between the Qur’an and the verbal corpora traditionally invoked to interpret it: He examines how the voice of the Qur’an paradoxically, but consistently, distances itself from poetry (shi’r), though Muslim reception decidedly countervails this. Rather, Muslim thought positions the two in dialogue as complements—warp and weft—one indispensable for understanding the other. Serrano guides us through the wadis between Qur’an and poetry, and traverses related verbal arts, likewise performed face to face, such as Hadith (Prophetic Sayings), Akhbar (lore), and history.” —Samer Ali, University of Michigan 2016 • 248 pages 978-1-4985-2070-6 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2071-3 • $94.99 / £65.00 • eBook

Edited by Lynette Hunter, Elisabeth Krimmer and Peter Lichtenfels, all University of California, Davis “What does it mean to feel? This collection considers both the social resonance and the political stakes of this question by concentrating the study of affect more closely upon the site of the inexorably mortal human body. By convening an impressive group of scholars, this anthology compels us to return our attention to the lived complexity of feeling as a material register of human experience. This beautifully curated book will expand critical conversations between affect studies and performance studies, restoring in our consideration of feeling the fleshy, corporeal timbre of the felt.” —Patrick Anderson, University of California, San Diego

Critical Childhood Studies and the Practice of Interdisciplinarity

Dark Assemblages

Pilar Pedraza and the Gothic Story of Development By Kay Pritchett, University of Arkansas

Disciplining the Child

Edited by Joanne Faulkner, University of New South Wales, and Magdalena Zolkos, Australian Catholic University “With the increasing interest in child/childhood studies, the scholars in this edited collection will no doubt make an invaluable contribution to the field. With its critical interdisciplinary edge to theory and method, the book challenges taken-for-granted understandings of the child/childhood, highlights the exclusionary practices that have marginalized children and their contributions to society and knowledgemaking, and points out the various ways in which the child/childhood have been utilized to maintain broader relations of power in cultures and broader society.” —Kerry Robinson, Western Sydney University Series: Children and Youth in Popular Culture 2016 • 190 pages 978-1-4985-2575-6 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2576-3 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

“In arguing for the significance of contemporary Gothic fiction, Kay Pritchett brings to bear on the subject an apt and effective critical vocabulary enlivened by the work of two of the twentieth century’s most gifted thinkers, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. True to the spirit they embodied, she brings to her own work a social commitment meriting much praise and commendation.” —Horizons in Humanities and Social Sciences: An International Refereed Journal This book examines strategies of transformation (becomings, image-making, and the phantasmagoric) that figure in four stories and a novel by Gothic fiction writer Pilar Pedraza (Spain, 1951).

Power, Resistance, and the Art of Self-Creation

Edited by Leonard Kaplan, emeritus , University of Wisconsin, and Ken Koltun-Fromm, Haverford College

Franz Kafka and Michel Foucault

By Nicholas Dungey, California State University, Northridge

Imagining the Jewish God

“The editors have wisely chosen to include many of the best minds and hearts and types of materials, from philosophy to poetry, to help us see the range of Jews’ attempt to describe their experience of the transcendent and what that experience means for their lives.” —Elliot Dorff, American Jewish University

“By reading Kafka through Foucault, Dungey illuminates and deepens Kafka’s striking claim that he was nothing but literature and could not and did not want to be anything else. In Dungey’s close analysis, Kafka’s life as a work of art becomes both an act of self-creation that contains its own dangers and possibilities and a form of resistance that contests the normalizing forces of society.” —P.E. Digeser, University of California at Santa Barbara

“This is this passionate book, gathering living ideas in mid-flight and words pushed to their limits, marking new traces across that Void.” —Yehudah Mirsky, Brandeis University

Neoliberal Rhetorics and Body Politics Plastinate Exhibits as Infiltration

By Tara Pauliny, John Jay College of Criminal Justice “Pauliny’s focus on literal bodies furthers the conversations rhetoricians are having about economics, policy, migration, and immigration by materially situating those conversations ‘on the body.’ Throughout the book, Pauliny demonstrates how the bisecting and presentation of actual cadavers in the BODIES exhibit enacts a type of bodily literacy that adheres to dominant and normalizing discourses, showing the exhibit to be an important site for neoliberal rhetorical analysis.” —Jennifer Wingard, University of Houston

The Screenplectics Model of Complex Narrative Systems By George Varotsis, University of Birmingham

“Varotsis addesses some of narratology’s traditional questions from a screenwriter’s perspective— problem solving through the process of writing and analyzing complex narratives. One of his concerns is moving beyond a ‘story grammar’ perspective toward a ‘plot-algorithm’ perspective. Plot algorithms allow the screenwriter to analyze and account for more complex narratives. The volume includes numerous figures, story sequences, and graphs that map out visually—and elucidate—the aspects of narrative or plot algorithms.… Recommended. ” —CHOICE

Against Power

For an Overhaul of Critical Theory

This book explores the issue of power from a philosophical literary perspective. It tackles the linguistic and literary relations between the notions of “power” and “potential”.

He explains how and why introspection developed in all its variations. He presents a well-documented history of this development in its cultural contexts.

New Essays on Travel, Literature, and Culture

The Intersection of Jane Austen and Adam Smith

The Legacy of the Grand Tour

Edited by Lisa Colletta. American University of Rome This volume examines the ways in which the legacy of the Grand Tour is still evident in works of travel and literature. From its aristocratic origins and the permutations of sentimental and romantic travel to the age of tourism and globalization, the Grand Tour still influences the destinations tourists choose and shapes the ideas of culture and sophistication that surround the act of travel. The essays in this collection examine a wide variety of literature— travel, memoir, and fiction—and explore the ways travel and ideas of “culture” have evolved since the heyday of the Grand Tour in the 18th century.

Pride and Profit

By Cecil E. Bohanon, Ball State University, and Michelle Albert Vachris, Christopher Newport University “With insight, wit, and sound judgment, Bohanon and Vachris not only show us the perhaps surprising degree to which Austen and Smith complement and enrich each other, but they also enhance and deepen our own understanding of human sociality. Perhaps we could not have known just how much a book like this needed writing.” —James R. Otteson, Wake Forest University Series: Capitalist Thought: Studies in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

Design, Mediation, and the Posthuman

The Limits of Politics

Making the Case for Literature in Political Analysis By Kyle Scott, University of Houston

As political units grow it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain a shared sense of humanity. We need to develop a moral imagination so that we may renew our sense of connectedness and responsibility to one another. Bringing together politics and art is one way this can be accomplished. This book draws upon political sources as well as works in literature, film, and theater to show the limits of politics and the need for a moral imagination.

Edited by Dennis M. Weiss, York College of Pennsylvania; Amy D. Propen, University of California, Santa Barbara; and Colbey Emmerson Reid, North Carolina State University “Anytime one mixes new technologies with the posthuman, one can expect a wild ride, and this book does not disappoint. From iPads and Phones, GPS and Internet on to LEGO and Siri, then to Steampunk Corsets, Elephantman, and Final Fantasy VII, the role of posthuman and technologies undergoes a stimulating analysis.” —Don Ihde, Stony Brook University Series: Postphenomenology and the Philosophy of Technology

Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

Heidegger’s Path to Language

“In this detail-oriented, textually grounded reading of Julius Caesar, Blits looks at the play in the context of classical Roman politics and history, in doing so extending his earlier work on Shakespeare’s Roman plays…. Taking issue with contemporary applications of literary and social theory to the play and with New Historicist approaches that read Shakespeare’s version of Rome through early modern English contexts, Blits argues for Shakespeare’s careful handling of Roman history as tempered by poetic demands…. Recommended ” —CHOICE

“This study will be essential reading for those interested in the issue that stands at the center of Heidegger’s question of being: the question of language. Gregory provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the development of Heidegger’s understanding of language from early to late, with particular emphasis on his interpretations of logos in Aristotle. The book concludes with a provocative critique of certain tendencies in Heidegger’s views on language, while suggesting the possibility of a productive dialogue between Heidegger’s views and recent developments in contemporary evolutionary biology and neuroscience.” —William McNeill, DePaul University

An Intellectual Biography of a TwentiethCentury Lebanese “Young Phoenician”

A Tribute to John Sutherland

Edited by William Baker, emeritus, Northern Illinois University

By Franck Salameh, Boston College

This book is both a celebration of the life and career of the eminent literary scholar, critic, and journalist John Sutherland and an extension of Sutherland’s work in various fields. The book goes beyond merely describing Sutherland’s work; essayists pay homage to Sutherland while also staking their own critical/scholarly claims. From investigating the complexities of Dickens and George Eliot, the archeology of Pride and Prejudice to the implications of Shakespearean souvenirs, literary puzzles, and Non-Victorians, the essays offer fresh dimensions to Sutherland’s rich career.

“An atmospheric, spirited, inspired defense of alternative viewpoints in a Middle East that today mainly features repression, terrorization, and boring absolutism. Franck Salameh introduces us to a neglected Lebanese polymath, an energetic, fascinating personality who represented and promoted a whole wing of Levantine identity and reality.

“The essays stage a veritable coup on our longstanding history of reading disability solely through exclusionary encounters with the built (urban) environment. Rather than situating disabled bodies as passively imprinted surfaces, Cella’s volume cultivates a more proactive relationship that meaningfully explores how materiality (our vulnerable, fleshy corporeality) actively inscribes the world around it.” —David Mitchell, George Washington University

Romantic Ecocriticism

Dark Nature

Origins and Legacies

Edited by Dewey W. Hall, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Anti-Pastoral Essays in American Literature and Culture Edited by Richard Schneider, emeritus, Wartburg College

“With his edited collection, Romantic Ecocriticism, Dewey Hall launches a much-needed ‘new wave’ of eco-historical scholarship of Romanticism, one that explores ecocriticism’s own historical roots in transatlantic writing of the late Georgian period. Romantic Ecocriticism takes us deep into the Anthropocene, and beyond.” —Gillen D’Arcy Wood, University of Illinois Series: Ecocritical Theory and Practice

“Building on Timothy Morton’s concept of ‘dark ecology,’ Richard Schneider, a leading Thoreau scholar, has assembled a wide-ranging collection of essays that explore an American literary tradition of disturbing, sinister, and fearful encounters with nature. These ‘anti-pastoral’ writings provide new perspectives on the continually expanding discourse of ecocriticism.” —David M. Robinson, Oregon State University “Offering smart treatments of nature’s disinterest, disease, and horrors, these canon-busting essays on both historical and contemporary print and non-print media jolt ecocriticism away from any remaining tendency to rest in pastoral idealism.” —Rochelle Johnson, College of Idaho Series: Ecocritical Theory and Practice

Over the Fence

Connecting Worlds in the Wilds

The Mythology of the Animal Farm in Children’s Literature

Backwoodsmen as Ecocritical Motif in French Canadian Literature

By Stacy E. Hoult-Saros. Valparaiso University

By Anne Rehill, U.S. Naval Institute

The four novels analyzed here—Taché’s Forestiers et voyageurs: Moeurs et légendes canadiennes (1863); Hémon’s Maria Chapdelaine (1916); Desrosiers’ Les Engagés du Grand Portage (1938); and Maillet’s Pélagie-la-Charrette (1979)—portray the backwoodsmen operating in a collaborative mode within the need to make money. They entered folklore through the 19th century literary efforts of Taché and others to construct a distinct French Canadian national identity.

“Dr. Hoult-Saros provides us with fresh look at the relationship between animals and humans in a farm setting. Her mastery of critical interpretation, combined with personal reflection and examples combine to make this an important addition to the field of animal studies as well as an excellent read.” —Jody Ballah, University of Cincinnat Blue Ash College Series: Ecocritical Theory and Practice

Ecocriticism, Ecology, and the Cultures of Antiquity

Edited by Christopher Schliephake, University of Augsburg “Too many writers assume that ecocriticism and environmental engagement began with the poems of Wordsworth or the writings of Thoreau. This collection of essays well demonstrates that for as long as humans have been creating texts they have been meditating critically upon their place within a natural world that far exceeds them in scale and duration. This work demonstrates that the Greek and Latin texts of antiquity have much of importance to say to a critical conversation today.” —Jeffrey J. Cohen, George Washington University

Ishimure Michiko’s Writing in Ecocritical Perspective Between Sea and Sky

Edited by Bruce Allen, Seisen University, and Yuki Masami, Kanazawa University “This extraordinary collection of scholarly articles and literary translations, published nearly twenty years after a 1996 symposium, offers a fitting tribute to the multidimensionality of Ishimure’s literary work and to the growing sophistication of ecocriticism.

Romantic Sustainability

Endurance and the Natural World, 1780–1830 Edited by Ben P. Robertson, Troy University

“Robertson offers a diverse collection of applied ecocritical essays, written by an international group of contributors from five continents, that focus on both traditional and less-known Romantic texts. One of the primary strengths of ecocriticism is its adaptability to a wide variety of purposes and strategies, and these essays forge innovative links between environmental sustainability and considerations such as race, gender, religion, and identity, and also 19th-century developments in science and technology.… Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“The volume homes in on prose and poetry of the US’s long 19th century…. The essays address authors whose struggles with these tensions were overt (Thoreau, Susan Fenimore Cooper, Audubon, Muir), along with authors not generally considered nature writers (Emily Dickinson, Margaret Fuller). One of the refreshing messages that weaves through this collection should not be startling, but is: when writers like Hawthorne and Melville set a character in nature, the landscape should be read as landscape rather than as psychology or symbol.… Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

Zoopoetics

Ecocritical Approaches to Italian Culture and Literature

By Aaron M. Moe, Washington State University

Edited by Pasquale Verdicchio, University of California, San Diego

New in Paperback

The Denatured Wild

Animals and the Making of Poetry

These essays provide a theorization of what we might call the “denatured” wild; a notion of environmental “restoration” or “reinhabitation” that recognizes and reconfigures the human factor as an interdependent entity. They negotiate the ground within the historicizing, theoretical perspectives, and surveying spirit of these writers. By recognizing the groundbreaking work of many non-Italian ecocritics, they challenge the narrowly defined conventions of Italian Studies.

“The critical study of ecopoetics demands innovative methodological approaches to reading and thinking about the relationship between poetry, form, and ecology. Moe’s book models precisely this type of approach, by bringing critical animal studies to the study of poetry and poetics in a rigorous and sustained way. In this sense, Zoopoetics is an important and timely contribution to a developing field.” —ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment

Freedom of Speech and the Function of Rhetoric in the United States By Michael Donnelly, Ball State University

The Collectivity of Life

Spaces of Social Mobility and the Individualism Myth By Joel Wendland, Grand Valley State University

The Bible, Mormon Scripture, and the Rhetoric of Allusivity

By Nicholas J. Frederick, Brigham Young University

“Joel Wendland offers a brilliant new take on the crucial American myth of individual self-fashioning. He demonstrates how attending to material spaces allows us to see that so-called self-made people always emerge from a complex, collective process embedded in particular places and communities.” —T.V. Reed, Washington State University

This work provides a close analysis of how Mormon scripture, specifically the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants, integrates the writings of New Testament into its own text. Frederick argues that through the rhetoric of allusivity Joseph Smith was able to bestow upon his works an authority they would have lacked without the incorporation of biblical language.

“Recent years have seen a revival of interest in Harriet Martineau.… Martineau asked Maria Weston Chapman to write a memorial volume that would supplement Martineau’s own twovolume Autobiography. Chapman agreed, and in the memorial volume she traces Martineau’s chronology, from infancy onward, and includes many personal details. The volume was uneven and poorly written, and was not reprinted with the two volumes Martineau had herself written. Still the volume is interesting, revealing Martineau’s thoughts and including previously unpublished material. This modern edition has extensive notes and a useful bibliography. Those interested in 19thcentury British history and feminism will find it a rich window on Whig thought.… Recommended.” —CHOICE Lehigh University Press 2016 • 560 pages 978-1-61146-215-9 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-1-61146-216-6 • $109.99 / £75.00 • eBook

By Olfa Youssef, University of Manouba Translated by Lamia Benyoussef, Birmingham-Southern College Using the methodology of modern scholars in the fields of Arabic lexicography, linguistics, and psychoanalysis, Tunisian feminist scholar Olfa Youssef investigates the rulings about inheritance, marriage, and homosexuality in the Qur’anic text itself and compares them with the androcentric interpretations provided by male Muslim theologians and legal scholars from medieval times to the present, which today inform the body of the sharia law in many parts of the Muslim world.

This interdisciplinary study investigates the relationship between technology and human nature. It is a timely and creative analysis of the ways in which we domesticate technology and the manner in which the history of slavery continues to be utilized in contemporary society. This text interrogates how the domestic slaves of the past are being re-imaged as domestic robots of the future. 2016 • 114 pages 978-0-7391-9145-3 • $70.00 / £47.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9146-0 • $69.99 / £47.95 • eBook

Rewriting the Nation in Modern Kazakh Literature

Post-Racial America? An Interdisciplinary Study

Edited by Vincent L. Stephens, Dickinson College, and Anthony Stewart, Bucknell University

Elites and Narratives

By Diana T. Kudaibergenova, University of Cambridge “Kudaibergenova offers a rare glimpse into the world of the ‘writers of the nation’ who, in pursuit of their elitist projects, shaped ‘total readership’ in Soviet Kazakhstan and inscribed the ideals of indigenous history and nationhood. While focused on research and mythology involved in these Soviet projects, she speaks to broader issues and provides important insights to academic debates on totalitarianism, post-colonialism, and national imagination.” —Saulesh Yessenova, University of Calgary

This book argues that the notion of the “postracial” does not begin with the election of Barack Obama, nor will its significance end with the conclusion of his administration. The “post-racial” is an expression of the protean nature of white supremacy in America, and the articles collected here demonstrate the variations within this seemingly innocuous and salutary expression.

The Idea and Representation of Vodou in Haitian Imagination

Searching the Negative Spaces in Histories of Rhetoric

Vodou in Haitian Memory

Liminal Bodies, Reproductive Health, and Feminist Rhetoric

Edited by Celucien L. Joseph, Indian River State College, and Nixon S. Cleophat, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

By Lydia McDermott, Whitman College

“Joseph and Cleophat offer to the field of Haitian Studies a very original, comprehensive and complex work that attempt to grasp Haitian Vodou in its complexities. The phenomenological, philosophical, theological, anthropological, sociological and literary approaches presented are all written according to the epistemological view of decoloniality, and consequently embraced pluriversalism instead universalism.” —Jean Eddy Saint Paul, Universidad de Guanajuato

“This beautifully written, deeply and eclectically researched book expands the fields of embodied rhetoric and disability studies. Historical and personal, reflective and political, careful and empowering, the reader is left listening for rhetorical echoes and reverberations wherever maternity, embodiment, and ability are invoked— and whenever the normative character of these concepts is ignored. Scholarly books should all be written so resourcefully, artistically, and honestly.” —Jay Dolmage, University of Waterloo

Edited by Silvia Pilar Castro-Borrego and Maria Isabel Romero-Ruiz, both University of Málaga “A comprehensive and diverse collection of case studies, theoretical essays, and film, novel, and character analyses, all of which foreground cultural and literary approaches to understandings of identity. Contributors discuss topics such as migration and queerness; anti-trafficking and prostitution; incest; uses and transgressions of the physical body; (ab)uses of power; postdecolonialism and post-humanism; feminism, black feminism, and patriarchy; victimization and agency; and understandings of identity.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“The chapters make several important contributions, both empirical and theoretical.... They make for an interesting and eclectic read, especially for how they address the old problem of adaptation and retention in new ways.

“Pompper deploys a creative methodology of selecting 45 representative images from five of the ‘seven sisters’ U.S. women’s magazines, to engage a wide range of women on discussions about ‘femininity.’ This group of multi-generational, ethnically, class, ability, and religiously diverse women reveals widespread discrepancy between mediated images and women’s experiences, ability, and satisfaction with their bodies in relation to those images.” —Angharad N.

An Inquiry into Childhood Belongings

Young Adult Fiction as Literacy Sponsorship

Misfit Children

Writing Youth

Edited by Markus Bohlmann. Seneca College

By Jonathan Alexander, University of California, Irvine

“A fun and lively volume on misfit kids of all sorts, from the outright monstrous to the gently peculiar. Contributors take up topics as diverse as kid masquerade dancers in Ghana, angsty white boy prodigies in the novels of John Green, Ferenczian psychoanalysis, Slenderman-attributed tween violence, and the medical normalization of transkids. An ecelectic but essential contribution to childhood studies.” —Kenneth B. Kidd, University of Florida

“Alexander offers a timely and keen analysis of how young adult literature promotes forms of adolescent literacy shaped by market forces. Writing Youth analyzes contemporary YA fiction as an important route to understanding adolescent identity, youth culture, and literacy education, and it explores the fascinating ways young people create their own multimedia responses to the products produced for them by adults.” —Eric Tribunella, University of Southern Mississippi

Girls’ Series Fiction and American Popular Culture

The Supernatural Revamped

From Timeworn Legends to Twenty-First-Century Chic

Edited by LuElla D’Amico, Whitworth University “This is an impressive and wide-ranging collection of essays, quite equal to the task of analyzing many of the series that have influenced American girls and young women for more than a century. From studies of Alcott’s little women, to Keene’s young detectives to Shepard’s little liars, these original essays make deeply informative contributions with their welltheorized readings that offer relevant connections to each other and to American popular culture.” —Roxanne Harde, University of Alberta—Augustana

Edited by Barbara Brodman and James E. Doan, both Nova Southeastern University

This book presents the supernatural as a truly international phenomenon, not restricted to the original folk characters, their literary representations, or their representation in film and popular media. Instead, we move around the world and into the twenty-first century, reshaping legends into a post-modern image that is psychologically and socially relevant while retaining elements of folklore mixed with a hint of science fiction.

Incarnational Love and Suffering

Critical Perspectives of the Storm’s Effect on American Culture and Identity

Catholic Literature and Film

Ten Years after Katrina

With a refreshing clarity of expression she describes the transposition of literary classics like Brideshead Revisited and Les Miserables and The Lord of the Rings from novel to film while guiding her readers toward a deeper understanding of Christian theology and piety.” —Peter Fraser, Regent University

Edited by Mary Ruth Marotte and Glenn Jellenik, both University of Central Arkansas “This book shows us why we need cultural criticism: the x-codes of Hurricane Katrina take on life as polysemous performance.

The Changing Enemy

By Oliver S Buckton, Florida Atlantic Univ “Buckton has written a comprehensive historical and thematic study of the development of what he terms ‘spy fiction.’ As he points out, such fictions have always responded to temporal political and cultural currents and have ‘consistently played a role in imagining, describing, elaborating, and defining the identity of the ‘other’—the foremost ‘enemy’ and national rival’.... Buckton considers nearly all the most celebrated authors and directors of the genre…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Nazi Card

Nazi Comparisons at the Beginning of the Cold War By Brian Johnson, Cleveland State University

As images of the Nazis’ atrocities became part of American cultural awareness, the evil of their old enemy, became increasingly important. As America tried to describe the danger represented by the spread of Communism, it fell back on descriptions of Nazism to make the threat plain through comparison. This book addresses this tension in regards to McCarthyism, campaigns to educate the public about Communism, attempts to raise support for wars in Asia, and the rhetoric of civil rights

Remake Television

Edited by Carlen Lavigne, independent scholar “This volume will appeal to media scholars, as well as to those looking for material to generate discussion in the undergraduate classroom. Remaking Television convincingly makes the case that the television remake has been under-theorized and under-appreciated.” —Literatur in Wissenschaft und Unterricht

“This book argues that the Machiavellian dictum ‘the end justifies the means’ is misrepresented by his reputation as a teacher of evil. According to the authors, even though Machiavelli does counsel the use of fraud without regard to ethical considerations, he does so in the service of the common good….

Charting the intersection of aesthetic representation and the material conditions of urban space, The City Since 9/11 posits that the contemporary metropolis provides a significant context for reassessing theoretical concerns related to narrative, identity, home, and personal precarity. Since the September 11 attacks, writers and filmmakers have explored urban spaces as contested sites—shaped by the prevailing discourses of neoliberalism, homeland security, and the war on terror—and haunted by an absence in the landscape that registers loss and prefigures future menace Fairleigh Dickinson University Press 2016 • 300 pages 978-1-61147-718-4 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-61147-719-1 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

About Lexington Books’ Literary Studies Program Founded in 1970, Lexington Books serves as Rowman & Littlefield’s imprint for publishing specialized new works by established and emerging scholars, with a critically acclaimed list of high-quality academic works that make a significant contribution to today’s scholarship. At a time when many publishers are cutting back on publishing monographs and edited collections, Lexington Books is dramatically expanding its programme, including its list in Literary Studies. https://rowman.com/Lexington

EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS Lexington Books is currently reviewing new manuscript proposals in Literary Studies. To submit a proposal for consideration, please send a prospectus, a detailed table of contents, one or two sample chapters, and your curriculum vitae. If you are proposing a contributed volume, please include titles/affiliations for each of the contributors, and we would accept chapter abstracts in lieu of sample chapters. Please do not send your entire manuscript. An acquisitions editor will contact you to request additional materials. The prospectus should include the following: 1. A description of the book, what makes it unique, and why you are qualified to write it. 2. A description of your target audience (undergraduate or graduate students? scholars? professionals?). 3. An analysis of competing or similar books (including publishers and dates). 4. A list of courses in which your book might be used as a text or supplementary text. 5. An indication of whether any part of your manuscript has been published previously, and if it is a doctoral dissertation, what changes you are proposing to prepare it for publication. 6. The length of the manuscript in 12-point type on double-spaced A4 pages. 7. If the manuscript is not complete, an estimation of when it will be finished. 8. An indication of whether the manuscript is under consideration by other publishers.

Please email your proposals to: LPorambo@Rowman.com Lexington Books Lindsey Porambo, Acquisitions Editor 4501 Forbes Boulevard, Suite 200 Lanham, MD 20706
