Ecocritical Theory and Practice Douglas Vakoch, METI

The series highlights scholarship at the interface of literary/cultural studies and the environment, fostering an ongoing dialogue between academics and environmental activists by exploring environmental issues through literatures, oral traditions, and cultural/media practices around the world.

This series provides a forum for works that explore Francophone literature, politics, history, and culture. Our books engage with notions of identity and exile and includes the study of the Francophone world’s relationship to France as an integral part of Francophone expression.

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 analyse 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.

Transforming Literary Studies: Crossing Boundaries 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’. It focuses on the modern and contemporary experiences of literature and the critique of literary studies arising from them at the crossroads of disciplines, traditions, and cultures.

Native American Literary Studies Susan Berry Brill de Ramírez, Bradley University

The series features scholarship on the literature and culture of Indigenous North America. We invite works both informed from within Indigenous North America and those innovative comparative studies that may be transnational, hemispheric, or global.

This series features scholarly works that examine representations of children and youth in popular culture and their vital contributions to cultural production and distribution. The series offers both local and global perspectives on children and adolescence and their representations in the landscape of popular culture. www.rowman.com www.rowman.com

American Haiku

Philip Roth and the American Liberal Tradition

New Readings

Edited by Toru Kiuchi, Nihon University

By Andy Connolly, Hostos Community College

American Haiku: New Readings explores the history and development of haiku by American writers, examining individual writers. Since the first English-language hokku (haiku) written by Yone Noguchi in 1903, one of the Imagist poet Ezra Pound’s well-known haiku-like poem, “In A Station of the Metro,” published in 1913, is most influential on other Imagist and later American haiku poets. Since the end of World War II many Americans and Canadians tried their hands at writing haiku.

“Andy Connolly breaks new ground by taking Roth’s fiction wholly back into the world of American political culture from which his art comes, from the New Deal to the current fractured political scene. In fresh, perceptive, and deeply informed close readings of the later novels, Connolly challenges the ways we have thought about Philip Roth. His superb scholarship shows persuasively how the decline of the liberal consensus concerning American society inflects Roth’s often conflicted engagement with matters of historical fact, the place of the artist, and the forms of fiction.” —Debra Shostak, College of Wooster

Don DeLillo after the Millennium Currents and Currencies

NEW

Edited by Jacqueline A. Zubeck, College of Mount Saint Vincent Don DeLillo after the Millennium: Currents and Currencies examines all the author’s work published in the 21st century. Essays examine his fiction, his plays, and his short stories. From cybercapital and currency markets, to ontology and intelligence, and global warming and cryogenics, DeLillo ponders the significance of present cultural currents, anticipating the waves of the future.

Roth after Eighty

Philip Roth and the American Literary Imagination

Edited by David Gooblar, University of Iowa, and Aimee Pozorski, Central Connecticut State University “This collection of new essays is a most fitting tribute to the ‘end’ of Philip Roth’s long and prolific career. The rich and varied approaches to Roth’s fiction contained in these pages reflect the enduring influence of one of the major voices of late twentieth-early twenty first century American life and thought. The essays artfully arranged in this volume seamlessly and gracefully paint a portrait of this ingeniously complex writer of our time.” —Victoria Aarons, Trinity University

Magical American Jew

The Enigma of Difference in Contemporary Jewish American Short Fiction and Film By Aaron Tillman, Newbury College

NEW

Sonia Sanchez’s Poetic Spirit through Haiku Edited by John Zheng, Mississippi Valley State University

Analyzing contemporary works of short fiction and film, this book highlights the complexities and contradictions of Jewish American identity and demonstrates how magical realist techniques enable uniquely cogent portrayals of enigmatic elements of difference. Aaron Tillman asks how we portray identities and differences that seem to resist concrete definition. He examines this enigma—the indefinite yet undeniable difference that informs contemporary Jewish American identity—demonstrating how certain writers and filmmakers have deployed magical realist techniques to illustrate the enigmatic difference that Jewish Americans have felt and continue to feel.

“Zheng explores how Sonia Sanchez used haiku to empower her voice within the Black Arts Movement. He explains that Sanchez expressed herself as ‘a protest poet, a fighter, and a revolutionary’ through haiku, a poetic form that originated as Japanese court poetry. Zheng notes that Sanchez, like Richard Wright, embraced haiku as a comfortable, familiar poetic structure.” —William Ferris, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill 2017 • 210 pages 978-1-4985-4332-3 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4333-0 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

Reading the Novels of John Williams

Elizabeth Bishop and Translation By Mariana Machova, University of South Bohemia

A Flaw of Light

By Mark Asquith, independent scholar

“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

Reading the Novels of John Williams: A Flaw of Light is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the novels of one of America’s unfairly neglected writers. This clearly structured study offers detailed readings of the major novels combined with a brief assessment of Williams as an academic, poet and teacher.

Poe and the Idea of Music

Elizabeth Bishop’s Prosaic

Failure, Transcendence, and Dark Romanticism

By Vidyan Ravinthiran, Durham University

By Charity McAdams, Arizona State 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

“Charity McAdams’ fascinating, thorough, and luminous book is the key to understanding Poe’s poetic idealism. That idealism conceives of itself as fundamentally musical. So we need to understand what music meant to Poe. This book gives us that understanding, by carefully mapping, for the first time, the relationship between Poe’s words, the music he might have heard, and the music he imagined beyond the reach of our ears. It is a unique contribution both to Poe scholarship, and to the study of the relationship between poetry and music in the 19th century.” —Peter Dayan, Universities of Edinburgh and Aalborg

Politics and Affect in Black Women’s Fiction By Kathy Glass, Duquesne University

“One of the first scholars to apply affect studies to black women’s fiction, Kathy Glass persuasively argues that affect should be understood not in terms of mere sentimentality, but as a potentially radical evocation of social action. Offering important new readings of Frances Harper, Julia Collins, Nella Larsen, and Danzy Senna, Politics and Affect in Black Women’s Fiction skillfully analyzes the multiple operations through which affect poses a transgressive challenge to racist ideology and practice.” —Linda Furgerson Selzer, Penn State University

This book explores the understanding of freedom developed in the later novels of celebrated Canadian author, David Adams Richards. Many reviewers highlight two interconnected features in Richards novels: a seemingly rigid determinism of setting and sociodemographics, and a resulting hopelessness. In contrast, Richards describes the quest of human life and the purpose of his novels as a search for freedom. This book explores the account of freedom that is developed through the course of four of Richards’s works.

By Kevin Lane Dearinger, independent scholar

Edited by Kevin Kerrane, University of Delaware

“Kevin Lane Dearinger meticulously details the life and works of a prolific dramatist whose name and plays are not currently known, but who was the first American to be taken seriously as a playwright…. The information in this book is bounteous and the subject almost forgotten, so this book is a valuable record of a highly interesting figure in the American theatre.” —EDGE

In the 1960s, while practicing as a general surgeon and teaching surgery at the Yale School of Medicine, Richard Selzer began publishing unique creative work in magazines such as Harper’s and Esquire. This volume is a definitive collection of essays, stories, public lectures, and final diary entries by the renowned surgeon and imaginative writer. Each of the book’s nine topical sections is prefaced by an overview of themes and patterns in Selzer’s work.

Connecting Worlds in the Wilds

Confluence Narratives

Ethnicity, History, and Nation-Making in the Americas

“Rehill focuses on one established figure​to offer an innovative perspective ​informed by ecocritical and postcolonial theories. Inspired by​intercultural intersections and environmental concerns, the study reinvigorates approaches such as those of Said, Serres, and Glissant, ​to reach pragmatic conclusions that ​will provid​e fertile material for discussion and debate​in courses centered on issues of relevance to both the Francophone world and the planet as a whole.” —Cécile Accilien, Kansas University

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.

“This is an elegant and meticulous presentation of the political thought in existential context of America’s most original and deepest thinker of the 20th century. It’s obviously the result of years of reflection, and it might well be the best book ever published on Walker Percy. Smith, in fact, has not just written a book on this philosopher-novelist, but on the truth about who we are and what we’re supposed to do.” —Peter Augustine Lawler, Berry College

Revisiting the Vision

The Centennial Study of My Ántonia

Writing the Harlem Renaissance

Something Complete and Great

Edited by Emily Allen Williams, University of the Virgin Islands

Edited by Holly Blackford, Rutgers University This volume situates My Ántonia as a novel that stands the test of time by including in its pages an extraordinarily wide range of historical, cultural, literary, psychological, thematic, perceptual, and stylistic issues. The volume provides an analysis and assessment of complexities in the novel as well as its reception and legacy. The essays as a whole situate the novel at the cusp of the modern period, marking in myriad ways the novel’s transitional role between nineteenth and twentieth-century literature and culture.

“Williams offers a richly informed exploration of the contemporary and historical significance of the Harlem Renaissance. The essays’ fresh excavations of this cultural flowering probe its wider intellectual, aesthetic, and humanistic scope. The contributors’ research turns attention to the movement’s diverse range of social, cultural, philosophical, and political interests that continue to elicit discerning scholarly insights. The book is most timely, moreover, as a centennial commemoration and revaluation of the legacy and continued promise of New Negro art.” —Paul Griffith, Texas Southern University

Edited by Francis K. Peddle, Dominican University College, and William S.

The original text is supplemented by notes which explain the changes George made during his lifetime and the many references he made to history, literature, economics, and public policy. A new index augments accessibility to the text and key terms. The introductory essay provides an overview of the historical context for George’s philosophy of economics and summarizes the argument of Progress and Poverty within the framework of the economic theories of his day.

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.

Paul Bowles’s Literary Engagement with Morocco

Girls’ Series Fiction and American Popular Culture Edited by LuElla D’Amico, Whitworth University

Poetic Space, Liminality, and In-Betweenness By Bouchra Benlemlih, Ibn Zohr University

“LuElla D’Amico’s collection aims to open up spaces for further academic work that both validates girls’ reading experiences and critically analyzes historical and contemporary girls’ series…. Common themes of identity, community, and femininity are woven throughout the chapters, as authors illuminate the historic evolution of American girlhood through the examination of popular girls’ series fiction…. These chapters note the possibilities and real-world implications for girls’ series fiction, enforcing the significance of both this collection and the wider field of girlhood studies. ”—Children’s Literature Association Quarterly

Benlemlih argues that Paul Bowles is more perceptive than many American travelers in Morocco. The book provides us with what are perhaps the most sustained meditations to date on Bowles’s translation work and his autobiography, as well as perceptive analyses of key stories such as “A Distant Episode” and “Here to Learn” and his second novel, Let It Come Down, set primarily in Tangier. The chapter on translation dwells on the complex interactions between Moroccan storytellers and Bowles. The work considers translation as a site where the oral and written, colonial and post-colonial scene, and English and Maghrebi come face to face.

“Una faccia, una razza, usually translated as same face, same race, has long been used to extoll the similarities between Greek and Italian cultures. Theodora Patrona delves beneath cultural surfaces to render deeper understandings of the experiences of these two major world cultures and their diasporas. Patrona’s unique perspective comes from her knowledge of their languages, histories, and literary productions, and provides us with a powerful testament to the benefits of comparative cultural studies and the importance of exploring literary responses to world diasporas.” —Fred Gardaphe, Queens College

Sinclair Lewis and American Democracy

John Updike’s Pennsylvania Interviews Edited by James Plath, Illinois Wesleyan University

By Steven Michels, Sacred Heart University

“Michels makes the case that Lewis and his work deserve greater attention than the author’s ‘minor’ status has heretofore afforded him. One of the primary strengths of Michels’s argument is his attention to the serious political ideology that marked Lewis’s novels. Lewis interrogated such institutions as the family, the economic system, and religion in addition to beliefs having to do with feminism and nationalism/racism—all matters that demand much more than superficial platitudes.… Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

George Oppen The Words in Action

By Richard Swigg, formerly Keele University “Swigg is an astute reader of the intersection of linguistic acoustics and the page. In this volume, Swigg presents a textual biography of Oppen’s work and its relation to contemporaneous and historical influences. The early chapters cover Oppen’s engagement with Charles Reznikoff and other Objectivists, but most of the study is devoted to the work Oppen did after he returned from a 25-year hiatus from writing poetry.…This study produces a unified sense of Oppen’s work… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“O’Connor cites Williams’s diary and letters to indicate his ‘knowledge of the legal ramifications and the specific laws that restricted homosexual activity’ during and after WW II. O’Connor discusses ‘compassionate views of difference’ in the transgressive characters of Streetcar Named Desire and Night of the Iguana.

Loving Immigrants in America

Melville among the Philosophers

Edited by Corey McCall, Elmira College, and Tom Nurmi, Montana State University, Billings “For a volume that covers every period of Melville’s career, every genre in which he wrote, and puts him in dialogue with thinkers such as Plato, Nietzsche, Schmitt, C. L. R. James, Deleuze, Derrida, and Ranciere—all the while traversing the disciplinary areas of philosophy, religion, literary theory, and politics—is it really out of place to compare it to the immensity of the whale or the vastness of the ocean in Melville’s greatest work? Melville among The Philosophers will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the work and legacy of this magesterial author.” —Jeffrey A. Bernstein, College of the Holy Cross

An Experiential Philosophy of Personal Interaction By Daniel G. Campos, Brooklyn College

“A timely contribution to the tradition of American philosophy (James, Du Bois, Addams, Peirce, Lugones) that starts with lived experience and with the notion that narratives sometimes provoke more philosophical reflection and understanding that argumentation. Immigration is more than a legal status, it is a lived experience; full of not only of conflict, hatred, and xenophobia but possibilities for mutual understanding and learning.” —Gregory Fernando Pappas, Texas A&M University

Father–Daughter Incest in Twentieth-Century American Literature

Narratives of Immigration and Language Loss Lessons from the German American Midwest

By Maris R. Thompson, California State University, Chico

The Complex Trauma of the Wound and the Voiceless

By Christine Grogan, Pennsylvania State University, University Park This interdisciplinary study rereads fatherdaughter 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.

This book examines narratives of anti-German sentiment and language loss from German American communities in southwestern Illinois. During World War I and II, government sponsored Americanization campaigns brought an abrupt end to German speaking practices in many communities across the Midwest. The narratives and the sociolinguistic practices around their telling detail the experiences of people who were singled out because of their ethnicity and bilingualism and the consequences these experiences had for their families.

Existentialist Thought in African American Literature before 1940 Edited by Melvin Hill, University of Tennessee, Martin

This collection breaks new ground in arguing that long before its classification by Jean-Paul Sartre, African American literature embodied existentialist thought. To make its case, this daring book dissects eight notable texts: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom, Ain’t I A Woman, Incidents in the Life of A Slave Girl, Imperium in Imperio, Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, 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.

The Twenty-first Century African American Novel and the Critique of Whiteness in Everyday Life Blackness as Strategy for Social Change By E. Lâle Demirtürk, Bilkent University

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 self-understanding in the face of insidious operations of whiteness.” —George Yancy, Emory University

The Wayward Woman

The Latest Early American Literature

By Barbara Antoniazzi, Free University of Berlin

The Latest Early American Literature both negatively critiques how the latest scholarly receptions of early American literature differ insignificantly from the earliest ones and positively proposes how a transnationalist concession—that America’s neocolonial culture lags behind that of Europe—might advance postmodern theorizing.

Antoniazzi takes a fresh look at the Progressive Era, recasting its debate on gender roles and prostitution. Transcending extant studies of female delinquency, prostitution literature, and Progressive womanhood, this work understands “female waywardness” as the intersection between female emancipation and the period’s obsession with sexual enslavement. It explores the Progressive ambivalence about compassion and control alongside a war on prostitution that traversed law, medicine, literature and politics.

Radical Legacies

Twentieth-Century Public Intellectuals in the United States By Arthur Redding, York University

Transnational Na(rra)tion

Home and Homeland in Nineteenth-Century American Literature By John Dolis, Penn State University, Scranton

Dolis 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.

“American literary historian Arthur Redding presents six essays on such radical American thinkers as Henry James, Henry Adams, Herman Melville, Langston Hughes, Emma Goldman, Paul Goodman, C. Wright Mills, and Angela Davis.… Redding considers his subjects to be ‘radical’ in their formulation of hopeless Utopian causes such as prison abolition, pacifism, gender equity, racial equality, and economic justice. The word ‘legacies’ in the title alludes to the idea that the thinking of these writers is radical rather than reformist. They do not accommodate themselves to any of the conservative policies of the US government.… Highly recommended.” —CHOICE 2017 • 172 pages 978-1-4985-1268-8 • $42.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4985-1266-4 • $84.00 / £54.95 • Hardback (2016) 978-1-4985-1267-1 • $40.50 / £27.95 • eBook

Transcendence and the Africana Literary Enterprise

Literature and Herstory

By Christel N. Temple, University of Pittsburgh

“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

“Temple centers Africology as a cultural lens. By doing so, she expands and reshapes literary criticism. In essence, this intervention into literary criticism can operate as a companion to existing and emerging African American anthologies. Transcendence is a paradigm shift that certainly incorporates previous works of literary criticism, but provides a new Afrocentric framework for learning and teaching Black culture. Her contribution repositions our notion of text and reader by connecting historical readings to contemporary literature.” —Stephanie Y. Evans, Clark Atlanta University

Certainly, and as the essays in this collection demonstrate, the future of African literary criticism promises more critical robustness enriched by the creative works of African women as AdimoraEzeigbo. It anticipates greater engagement with quintessential issues surrounding women’s empowerment and transcendence over growing social challenges.” —Pauline Uwakweh, North Carolina A&T State University

Classical Chinese Poetry in Singapore

Imagining Sisterhood in Modern Chinese Texts, 1890–1937

Witnesses to Social and Cultural Transformations in the Chinese Community

By Yun Zhu, Temple University

By Bing Wang, Nanyang Technological University

“This well-researched and tightly argued book demonstrates the centrality of an imagined female community, rallying around the notion of ‘sisterhood,’ in the construction of modern Chinese nationalism and Chinese modernity.” —Ping Zhu, University of Oklahoma

This book sketches out the brief history of classical Chinese poetry in Singapore over a hundred years, and focuses on the complex identity of poets from different generations, the function of literary societies in the construction of cultural space, and the influence of modern media on the development of classical Chinese poetry based on the text interpretation. In addition, the author attempts to define different types of poetry writing using diaspora literature and Sinophone literature. The discussion of these topics will not only expand the research horizon of Chinese literature, but also provide a meaningful reference to the studies of the worldwide Chinese overseas, especially in Southeast Asia.

“Yun Zhu’s cutting-edge and eye-opening book offers an important and inspiring study of sisterhood imaginations from late Qing to mid-Republican China. Built upon substantial archival studies, the chapters are thematically woven together and offer a nuanced, rigorous and interdisciplinary analysis of a broad array of sisterhood narratives in diverse genres, including traditional chantefable fiction, modern novellas, short stories, film and periodicals. Refreshing, timely, and well-researched, this compelling study urges readers to confront and critically assess the complexities, paradoxes and hybridizations of female subjectivities in China’s long process of transition toward modernity in a shifting global context. ” —Li Guo, Utah State University

Women’s Poetry and Poetics in Late Imperial China

Interfamily Tanci Writing in NineteenthCentury China

By Haihong Yang, University of Delaware

Bonds and Boundaries

A Dialogic Engagement

“Haihong Yang’s study presents a major addition to the growing body of scholarship on late imperial Chinese women’s literature by looking into the various strategies used by these women authors to create ‘a tradition of their own.’ Topics discussed include attempts at devising a female poetics, the repositioning of male tropes like ‘the recluse’ in a female context, the use of ‘poems written in jest’ to make controversial claims, and the innovative use of allusions. The monograph concludes with a chapter devoted to poems written by women in celebration of the changes in women’s education in the final decades of the Qing dynasty. In each chapter a general introduction precedes a more detailed case study. It has to be considered a strength of this volume that each chapter tantalizingly leaves the reader wishing for a more comprehensive treatment of its theme.” —Wilt L. Idema, Harvard University

Employing an interdisciplinary approach, this is the first monograph to frame three once widely-read works of tanci fiction (a type of lyrical narrative) from nineteenth-century China, Meng ying yuan (1843), Yu xuan cao (1894), and Jing zhong zhuan (1895), as interrelated texts composed by three generations of members from one extended gentry family in South China. Based on the framework of family bonds, this book uses the three tanci works, authored by a mother, her daughter, and a nephew, to examine the history of how the changing aesthetics of tanci developed over China’s turbulent nineteenth century. It also demonstrates how the three writers used the genre of tanci to blur the boundaries of orthodox Confucian norms, in order to depict the evolving nature of gendered power relations at the dawn of China’s modernity. 2017 • 302 pages 978-1-4985-5785-6 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5786-3 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

Harmonious Heterotopia

Rewriting the Nation in Modern Kazakh Literature By Diana T. Kudaibergenova, University of Cambridge

Mystifying China’s Southwest Ethnic Borderlands By Yuqing Yang, Minzu University of China

“Impressively applying methods of cultural semiotics and the sociology of culture, Diana T. Kudaibergenova approaches the ideologies that have been accompanying the complex transformations of Kazakh national identity in a non-ideological manner, combining intimate familiarity with her subject with an objective perspective throughout. This renders her monograph a groundbreaking contribution to the study of modern Kazakh society, particularly regarding the ways in which literary texts shaped national discourses during the Soviet and post-Soviet periods.” —Peter Rollberg, George Washington University

“Eloquently rendered, this new study deepens insight into minority representation in China by expanding the symbolic analysis of space. Yuqing Yang delves into the ambivalences and contradictions, the passions and nostalgias, that mark China’s fraught encounter with modernity and its imaginary of a space apart where the past is preserved—and potentially oppositional. Fusing Foucault’s notion of heterotopia with the dynamics of otherness, Yang develops a theory of mirroring, however asymmetrical, to illuminate the mythologization of minority places. Through close and politically canny literary interpretation, we journey through the fantasized terrains of Dali, Shangri-La, and Mosuoland where the ethnic other becomes an indispensable outside that is not absolute but is rather complexly entwined with a Chinese self, constituted through difference.” —Louisa Schein, Rutgers University

Staging the Other in Muromachi Noh Theater By Leo Shingchi Yip, Gettysburg College

“By looking closely at eleven noh plays that feature Chinese stories and characters, Professor Yip has written a carefully-documented book about the multiple ways in which Japanese playwrights portrayed China, Japan’s primary Muromachi Period ‘other’—these ‘others’ are divided into ‘sympathized other,’ ‘distanced other,’ ‘exotic other,’ ‘destructive other,’ and ‘harmonious other,’ representing the ambivalence that educated Japanese felt toward China in the late medieval period of Japan’s history.​​” —Mae Smethurst, emerita, University of Pittsburgh

Language, Literacy, and Social Change in Mongolia Traditionalist, Socialist, and Post-Socialist Identities By Phillip P. Marzluf, Kansas State University

English is a global language because of the power that English-speaking countries hold in the world. Its spread has been examined as a form of imperialism and hegemony. While recognizing the power of English globally, this book examines the effects, movements, and actions that result from these transcultural flows acknowledging English students and teachers individual and collective agency that is possible through English language education.

Writing the Body in Francophone Oceanian Women’s Literature By Julia Frengs, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

This book offers an examination of contemporary literature from the Frenchspeaking Oceanian region through a focus on four of its most prolific women writers and the ways in which these writers negotiate identity construction through one of the most powerful identity markers in the region: the body. The authors examined in this book employ culturally, racially, and sexually specific bodies in the creation of an original, confrontational literature that transgresses historically and culturally imposed boundaries, audaciously inserting their voices, the voices of Oceania, into the postcolonial francophone literary scene.

Influences include Victorian, Edwardian, and Modern literature and culture as well as traditional Indian literature and culture during the late colonial, pre-independence period. The publication recorded and participated in the most pivotal moment in modern Indian history and did so by appealing to both the conservative and progressive socio-political urges marking the era.

Urban Spaces and Cultural Imaginations in Contemporary Chinese Literature and Films By Yiran Zheng, Capital Nor-mal University, Beijing

“Writing Beijing makes a remarkable contribution to the growing cultural studies of Chinese cities. Zheng not only engages in insightful discussions of the urban spaces of Beijing, including the important yet hitherto neglected military compound, but also provides exciting new interpretations such as ‘gendered city.’ With its breath and clarity, this book would be an essential reference to anyone interested in Chinese cities, Chinese literature, film and society.” —Yanjie Wang, Loyola Marymount University

“This ambitious volume provides a long-missing perspective on Japanese literary production in the vortex of the immediate postwar. Indeed, one could argue we have been hard-pressed to understand the full import of postwar Japanese literature without it.

Chaucer’s Neoplatonism

Indians in Victorian Children’s Narratives

By John M. Hill, emeritus, U.S. Naval Academy

By Shilpa Bhat Daithota, Ahmedabad University, Gujarat

Varieties of Love, Friendship, and Community

Animalizing the Native, 1830-1930

Chaucer’s Neoplatonism covers his major works and the ways in which he has absorbed a Boethian, essentially rational Neoplatonism. By means of that philosophy he poetically engages issues of truth, falsehood, love, friendship, joy, and community. His widely recognized, capacious humanism arises from that engagement.

“This examination of the orientalist and colonialist ideologies underpinning British children’s literature from 1830-1930 is an important addition to the study of British culture. By examining a variety of texts such as Great Exhibition phamplets, Alphabet picture books, animal imagery in Edward Lear’s narratives, and the adventure stories of Kipling, Frances Burnett, and G.A. Henty, this book offers a broad range of texts that demonstrate how young British children were prepared to be colonial masters.” —Nalini Iyer, Seattle University

Chapters on Troilus and Criseyde examine relationships between the main characters given the place of noble friendship within an initially promising but then tragic love story. The drama of those relationships become Chaucer’s major claim to fame before the tales of Canterbury, where, for meditative purposes, he gathers various gestures toward community among the dramatically interacting pilgrims, while also exploring the dynamics of reconciliation.

“Shilpa Bhat Daithota’s scholarly research reveals startling facts as she uncovers the underlying basics of indoctrination of the British children of the colonies. Written at the expense of the dignity of the natives, the allegories of the Empire with animal stories are brought back to us by Daithota and the resulting impact on the reader is impeccable.” —Rucha Brahmbhatt, Samarpan Arts & Commerce College

Aesthetics and Ideology of D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, and T. S. Eliot By Petar Penda, University of Banja Luka

“This 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 The narrative re-tellings of the life, reign, and death of the English King Edward II (reigned 1307–1327) present a unique opportunity for scholars of sexuality in the early modern era. This is because the works of authors like Christopher Marlowe, Michael Drayton, Sir Francis Hubert, Elizabeth Cary, and Richard Niccols were all inspired by the public, cultural memory fashioned from Edward’s same-sex love affair with Piers Gaveston. As such, each of them presents a particular representation of and a specific discourse about male-male sexual relations in the Renaissance.

“Petar Penda’s contextual approach to the work of Lawrence, Woolf, and Eliot reads the authors within and against the social systems of the early twentieth century. In part a consideration of the literary work’s relation to history, in part an exploration of the intricate connections between the ideologies of the text and those of the author, this book considers what no other study of Modernist aesthetics has looked at before: the politics of social and class consciousness.” —Wim Van-Mierlo, Loughborough University Petar Penda explores the correlation between the aesthetic and the ideological in Modernism, with special focus on Lawrence, Woolf and Eliot. He challenges common views of modernists as opponents of established religious, political, and social order.

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

“This is one of those rare books on Shakespeare that combines the scholar’s understanding of the architecture and language of Shakespeare’s plays with the practitioner’s understanding of how that information is useful to the actor and the director. Here’s a book that teaches you about rhetoric and character at the same time that it teaches you why it matters on the stage.” —Ralph Alan Cohen, Mary Baldwin University and Co-founder, American Shakespeare Center

“Cheng shows convincingly that the topic of human interest, while it frequently comprises the content and orientation of a given text, more often animates its paratextual apparatus (title, preface, footnotes, marginal comments, letters written during composition of the text). That is, the question of human interest … is for Romantic writers primarily a formal matter played out in paratextual discussions of how best to depict a ‘human’ envisioned as strengthening our humanity.” —Julie A.

Shakespeare’s Thought

Unobserved Details and Unsuspected Depths in Eleven Plays

Evelyn Waugh’s Satire

By David Lowenthal, Assumption College

Texts and Contexts

By Naomi Milthorpe, University of Tasmania

“Lowenthal deftly shows that Shakespeare, more a poet and dramatist than philosopher, was deeply interested in some fundamental issues of moral and political life, in such a way that his astonishing achievements in plot, character, and poetic utterance can best be understood as emanating from the particular issue or issues that each play explores. Lowenthal is not afraid to talk about ‘meaning’; he offers a countervailing argument to trends in current theoretical criticism.” —David Bevington, University of Chicago

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.

Shakespeare between Machiavelli and Hobbes

Heterodox Shakespeare

Dead Body Politics

Benson explores Shakespeare’s investigation of religious ideas and phenomena that, from the Church’s perspective, range from traditional orthodox belief to radical unorthodoxy. The book is the first to suggest that Shakespeare accommodates both secular and religious readings by embedding them simultaneously within his plays. Benson demonstrates both that the range of Shakespeare’s investigation of religious questions is more daring than has previously been thought, and that the distinction between the sacred and the profane, between the orthodox and the unorthodox, is one that Shakespeare continually engages.

Plautus and the English Renaissance of Comedy

Liberty in Jane Austen’s Persuasion By Kathryn E. Davis, University of Dallas

By Richard F. Hardin, emeritus, University of Kansas

“Instead of focusing on the verbal art of Jane Austen’s oeuvre as a whole, Davis selects Austen’s final complete novel, Persuasion, for analysis. The result is a theoretically informed specialist study that adds significantly to the growing body of research on Austen’s work…. This is a welcome and significant addition to Austen criticism, and it offers a degree of nuance in its readings that testifies not only to Austen’s skill at crafting the novel but also to the author’s ability to decode the multifarious and often complex meanings of Austen’s work.” —ANQ: A Quarterly Journal of Short Articles, Notes, and Reviews

This book defines the unique contribution of Plautus, detached from his fellow Roman dramatist Terence, and seen in the context of that European revival of comedy as it took shape first on the Continent and then in England. The heart of the book, with special focus on English comedy ca. 1560 to 1640, analyzes the elements of Plautine, as differentiated from native and Terentian, technique during the period, considering such points of comparison as asides, metadrama, observation scenes, characterization, and atmosphere.

Appropriating Shakespeare

NEW

A Cultural History of Pyramus and Thisbe

Satire, Celebrity, and Politics in Jane Austen

By Louise Geddes, Adelphi University

By Jocelyn Harris, emerita, University of Otago, Dunedin

Geddes argues that the vibrant, transformative history of the play-within-a-play from A Midsummer Night’s Dream across four centuries allows us to see ways in which Shakespeare is used to both create and critique emergent cultural trends. Because of its careful distinction between “good” and “bad” art, Pyramus and Thisbe’s playful meditation on the foolishness of over-reaching theatrical ambition is repeatedly appropriated by artists seeking to parody contemporary aesthetics, resulting in an ongoing assessment of Shakespeare’s value.

Jocelyn Harris argues that Jane Austen was a satirist, a celebrity-watcher, and a keen political observer. Thoroughly researched and elegantly written, this new book contributes significantly to the growing literature about Austen’s worldiness by presenting a highly particularized web of facts, people, texts, and issues vital to her historical moment.

Minds in Motion

Imagining Empiricism in Eighteenth-Century British Travel Literature By Anne M. Thell, National University of Singapore

Irish Blow-In

By Eugene Hammond, Stony Brook University “In this first volume of his two-volume literary biography of Swift (1667–1745), Hammond offers a close study of the first decades of Swift’s life, from his early years until the collapse of the Tory government after the death of Queen Anne in 1714. Hammond provides a detailed account of Swift’s personal associations and political activism as well as the development of his literary career.… This is a valuable tool for the study of Swift. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

Minds in Motion argues that travel literature expedites individual engagements with epistemology because the genre forces authors to determine and disclose the potential value of their individual perspectives. More specifically, it examines how eighteenth-century British travel writers explore newly configured models of empiricism even as they continue to probe the role of the self and the imagination in the production of experiential knowledge.

Effeminate Years

Literature, Politics, and Aesthetics in Mid-Eighteenth-Century Britain

By Eugene Hammond, Stony Brook University

By Declan Kavanagh, University of Kent

“Hammond examines the climax of his subject’s career, giving considerable space to both the political climate and Swift’s major literary output of the 1720s: The Drapier’s Letters, Gulliver’s Travels, and A Modest Proposal. Hammond explores Swift’s private life, specifically his relationships with Esther Vanhomrigh and Esther Johnson, along with the colonial scene in Ireland that provoked much of his commentary. Tracing both Swift’s indignation and his capacity for friendship, Hammond offers a carefully researched view of Swift that unites the critic and satirist with the man of faith…. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“Effeminate Years explores how ideal versions of masculinity become imbricated in idealised versions of nationality and ethnicity. It provides a remarkably comprehensive, deft and very entertaining account of the culture wars of these important years to demonstrate how the cultural productions of the era manifest anxiety, opportunism and counter-strategy about what kind of man should and would lead the development of Britain and expansion of empire.” —Katherine O’Donnell, University College Dublin

A Vocabulary Compiled for Esther Johnson and Copied in Her Own Hand

Jonathan Swift and Philosophy Edted by Janelle Pötzsch, Ruhr-Universität Bochum

“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

Milton’s Socratic Rationalism

Romancing History in Contemporary Historical Fiction

The Conversations of Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost

By Martha F. Bowden, Kennesaw State University

By David Oliver Davies, University of Dallas

“Walter Scott’s works shaped historical fiction as we now know it, and Bowden argues that, far from abandoning Scott’s parameters, contemporary historical novelists continue to work within them. Above all, what novelists have inherited from Scott is ‘romance,’ which counterpoints the past’s difference by evoking otherwise unrecorded individual emotions and a sense of ‘wonder.’ For Bowden, this interplay of emotion, wonder, and authenticity makes a successful historical novel—one that can illuminate the ‘grey spaces’ of individual lives otherwise left obscure.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“What, exactly, did Adam and Eve do when they ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and what were the consequences? Milton put this question front and center in Paradise Lost; and this provocative monograph makes a compelling case that the English poet’s take on these questions owes as much to Xenophon, Plato, and Aristotle as it does to the Book of Genesis.” —Paul A.

Andrew Marvell, Sexual Orientation, and Seventeenth-Century Poetry By George Klawitter, Holy Cross College, Notre Dame

Andrew Marvell, Sexual Orientation, and Seventeenth-Century Poetry examines the poet’s major works to unmask English Interregnum/ Restoration attitudes on sexuality with a view of understanding Marvell’s own sexuality. Klawitter explicates the poet’s lyric pieces, major and minor, against a background of modern theories of human sexuality. This new book will help both new readers as well as established Marvellians to understand cryptic sexual meanings and references in the verses. Poems are explicated against current heteronormative theory as well as recent work on homoeroticism, autoeroticism, and celibacy.

The Collected Poems of Laurence Whyte Edited by Michael Griffin, University of Limerick

“This is an excellent edition of an important poetic voice from the Ireland of Swift, Goldsmith and Sheridan: however, the volume is of interest also to those concerned with the Dublin print trade....

The Leslie A. Marchand Memorial Lectures, 2000–2015

Selected Poetry and Prose of Edmond Holmes By John Howlett, University of Keele

A Legacy in Byron Studies

This book represents the first scholarly gathering of the long-neglected poetry of the School Inspector, educationalist, and philosopher Edmond Holmes. Alongside a generous selection from Holmes’s six volumes of poetry there is also a full reproduction of Holmes’s essay What is Poetry which served to delineate his thinking on the discipline. Lengthy scholarly introductions to each locate Holmes’s poetry not merely within the context of its time and amongst his contemporaries, but make a case for the importance of this body of work in its own right.

Edited by Katherine Kernberger, emerita, Linfield College This diverse collection of lectures honors the pioneering work in Byron studies of Leslie Alexis Marchand. Their varied approaches— literary and cultural, historical and political, scientific and artistic—exemplify how his biographies of Byron and his edition of the letters and journals attract both academic and popular audiences.

The Papist Represented

Desire, Indeterminacy, and the Legacies of Criticism

Literature and the English Catholic Community, 1688–1791

By Fiona Brideoake, American University

By Geremy Carnes, Lindenwood University

“The first book about Butler and Ponsonby in almost half a century does brilliant justice to the famous female couple about whom our knowledge will always be maddeningly limited. Blending biography and critical history, Fiona Brideoake reads the Ladies through their successive afterlives, grappling with the ways in which they have been appropriated and analyzed, mythologized and mystified in tandem with shifting sexual, social, and aesthetic norms. In so doing, she models a new approach to sexual history that could not be better suited to our own queer times.” —Susan Lanser, Brandeis University

The Papist Represented situates eighteenthcentury literature within the history and culture of the English Catholic community and its interactions with the nation’s Protestant majority. It demonstrates Catholic influence on some of the period’s most popular and experimental literary works, challenging the assumption that eighteenth-century literature was a fundamentally Protestant enterprise.

Virginia Woolf on/and/in Film

By Earl G. Ingersoll, emeritus, SUNY, Brockport

“Ingersoll, who has also written about film adaptations of the novels of E. M. Forster, acknowledges that addressing the connections between film and Virginia Woolf is a less straightforward endeavor than are most case studies of adaptation. In contrast to Forster’s, Woolf’s connection to film is not simply that of the author of a source text. She actively engaged film, writing both critically and theoretically about it and its relationship to the novel.… Ingersoll’s investigation of the connections, as he terms it, between Woolf and film is thoughtful and useful scholarship for those interested in English literature and film studies….

Morillo illuminates compelling historical connections between a current fascination with animal life and the promotion of the moral status of non-human animals as ethical subjects deserving our attention and respect, and a deep interest in the animal as agent in eighteenthcentury literate culture. He explores how writers, well-known poets, important authors who mixed art and science, and largely forgotten writers of sermons and children’s stories all offered innovative alternatives to conventional narratives about the meaning of animals in early modern Europe.

The Theatre of Death

Rituals of Justice from the English Civil Wars to the Restoration

Edited by Ronnie Young, University of Glasgow; Ralph McLean, National Library of Scotland; and the late Kenneth Simpson

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. This study focuses on the words and contexts of many condemned men’s last dying utterances, including King Charles I, Archbishop William Laud, and the Earl of Strafford, as well less well known royalists and regicides

This volume takes a fresh look at the literary culture of the Scottish Enlightenment and the wider impact of imaginative literature on Enlightenment culture in general. Covering key authors and work in areas as varied as philosophy, medicine, travel writing, religion, drama, history, publishing, and the periodical press, it provides a timely re-evaluation of the links between imaginative literature and the larger project of Enlightenment in Scotland and beyond.

The Publishing and Marketing of Illustrated Literature in Scotland, 1760–1825

Ballads to Blake

By Betsy Bowden, emerita, Rutgers University By focusing on one literary character, as interpreted in both verbal art and visual art at a point midway in time between the author’s era and our own, this study applies methodology appropriate for overcoming limitations posed by historical periodization and by isolation among academic specialities. Here, The Wife of Bath is regarded through the disciplinary lenses of eighteenth-century literature, visual art, print marketing, education, folklore, music, equitation, and especially theater both in London and on the Continent.

“A landmark treatment of eighteenth-century Scottish print and literature, introducing the micro-history of book-illustration to the area.” —Gerard Carruthers, University of Glasgow

The first ever study of illustrated belles lettres publishing in eighteenth-century Scotland, the book examines the strategies underpinning the making and the marketing of illustrated books. At the same time, it sheds light on those individuals (artists, engravers, booksellerpublishers) that were involved in the production of these works.

Trolander examines early-modern English literary networks during the transition from manuscript to print during the early modern period. This book is based on a survey of 28,000 letters and over 850 mainly English correspondents, ranging from consumers to authors, significant patrons to state regulators, printers to publishers, from 1615 to 1725.

“This ambitious book offers an alert and lively examination, not of Anglo-Scottish writing as a whole, but of the idea and representation of unionism in a series of specific authors or case-studies....

“The book is an imaginative survey of tapestries as material objects, representations, theatrical furnishings, poetic figures, and still more. ” —American Behavioral Scientist Olson reveals that early modern writers aspired to produce narratives that replicated the structure and aesthetic of high-quality Renaissance tapestries in order to appeal to their audiences’ desire for a “hands-on” and idiosyncratic narrative experience.

Though this 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

The Bear Stage

Edited by Catherine Loomis, University of New Orleans, and Sid Ray, Pace University Shaping Shakespeare for Performance collects significant work from the 2013 Blackfriars Conference. The volume’s contributors range from renowned scholars and editors to acclaimed directors, highly-trained actors, and budding researchers. The topics cover a similarly wide range. The essays focus on the practical applications of theory, scholarship, and editing to performance of early modern plays.

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

“This is a serious, highly polemical study by a distinguished scholar. Vickrey seeks to establish his view 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.…. Vickery argues with great plausibility, through much explicit textual citation and interpretation…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Neo-Stoicism and Skepticism in Part One of Don Quijote Removing the Authority of a Genre By Daniel Lorca, Oakland University

“Shrinking violets no more: A liberating look at Nabokov’s fictional women and a much needed – and long overdue – addition to Nabokov Studies!” —Galya Diment, University of Washington

“Lorca sheds new light on the philosophical dimensions of Don Quijote by positing neostoicism and skepticism as integrated forces. He demonstrates the impact of late Enlightenment readings on our interpretation of the novel, as a corrective to excess focus on the legacy of Romanticism. His comparative analysis of the epistemological practices employed by Don Quijote and Marcela enhances our understanding of both characters and of Cervantes’ parody of romance narrative.” —Barbara Simerka, Queens College, CUNY

“Elena Rakhimova-Sommers’ edited volume is a welcome contribution to Nabokov studies that urges us to listen to the voices of Nabokov’s heroines and to chart the territories they occupy. By engaging with a large number of texts, Nabokov’s Women offers a rich and varied investigation into the bodies, voices and destinies of heroines who inhabit and haunt Nabokov’s fiction, from Mary to Ada.” —Monica Manolescu, University of Strasbourg

“A timely collection of excellent essays that combine historical investigation and close analysis of German-language comics with compelling suggestions for further research and teaching. Highly recommended!” —Daniel Stein, University of Siegen

From notions of art for art’s sake to committed poetry, it may seem that poets cannot achieve reconciliation between the politics and poetry. However, among committed Communist poets of the 20th century of the Spanish-speaking world, three poets stand out as examples of a search to bring together their political and their poetic commitments: Rafael Alberti, Nicolás Guillén, and Pablo Neruda. Grant Moss analyzes the simultaneous development of politics and poetics in these three Spanish-language poets as it was nurtured by the Second Spanish Republic (1931-1939).

“Taking the concept of mimicry as her Ariadne’s thread through the labyrinth of Nabokov’s work, Teckyoung Kwon traces the far-reaching affinities between his twin passions for lepidopterology and literature, and in the process exposes the hidden resemblances that lie beneath Nabokov’s loudly proclaimed antagonism to Freud.

Don Quixote

The Re-accentuation of the World’s Greatest Literary Hero

Edited by Slav N. Gratchev, Marshall University, and Howard Mancing, Purdue University

Narrative Form and the Question of Spanish Habsburg Power, 1530–1647 By Julia L. Farmer, University of West Georgia

Farmer explores how key authors of early modern Italy and Spain questioned Habsburg authority through “imperial texts”—texts that call attention to their organizational process. 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.

This book is a unique scholarly attempt to examine Don Quixote from multiple angles to see how the re-accentuation of the world’s greatest literary hero takes place in film, theatre, and literature. For the first time, Don Quixote is discussed from the point of re-accentuation, i.e. having in mind one of the key Bakhtinian concepts that will serve as a theoretical framework.

Italian Women’s Autobiographical Writings in the Twentieth Century

Durrell Re-read

Crossing the Liminal in Lawrence Durrell’s Major Novels By James M. Clawson, Grambling State University

Constructing Subjects

“James Clawson’s incisive, comprehensive analyses offer a whole range of innovative understandings of Durrell’s oeuvre–of its diversities as well as overarching unities–and a clear, enabling perspective on the complex midtwentieth century literary allegiances shaping its unique vision.” —Randall Stevenson, University of Edinburgh

By Ursula Fanning, University College Dublin This book highlights the centrality of the autobiographical enterprise to Italian women’s writing through the twentieth century— a century that has frequently been referred to as the century of the self. Ursula Fanning addresses the thorny issue of essentialism potentially involved in underlining links between women’s writing and autobiographical modes, and ultimately rejects it in favor of an argument based on the cultural, linguistic, and literary marginalization of women writers within the Italian context.

“Clawson establishes a lucid framework for apprehending the instabilities of time and space, life and death, art and reality that mark Durrell’s liminal world.” —Anne R.

She discusses and explicates Pagis’ reaction to the trauma of the Holocaust and analyzes in depth the poet’s difficult yet powerful lyrical approach.” —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.

This book analyzes the literary production of Spanish writers who place the global economic crisis at the center of their writing. This is the first comprehensive study of crisis literature, which is a genre that arose in response to the transformation of the European welfare state by the forces of liquid capital.

Ukraine’s Quest for Identity

Embracing Cultural Hybridity in Literary Imagination, 1991–2011

By Emily C. Friedman, Auburn University

By Maria G. Rewakowicz, Rutgers University, New Brunswick

Reading Smell examines how far the novel, which is so often claimed to be a repository of modernity and changing mores, can be understood through a reintroduction of olfactory information. After decades of reading for all kinds of racial, cultural, gendered, and other sorts of absences back into the novel, this book takes one step further: to consider how the recovery of forgotten or overlooked olfactory assumptions might reshape our understanding of these texts.

“Maria G. Rewakowicz has written the first comprehensive study of the development of Ukrainian literature since the Soviet collapse. Rewakowicz interprets major Ukrainian literary texts as construction sites for ethnic, regional, linguistic, and gender representations and concludes that the key feature of the postcommunist Ukrainian literary scene—cultural hybridity—reflects the uncertainty of the nation’s warped post-Soviet transition.” —Serhy Yekelchyk, University of Victoria

Rewriting Franco’s Spain

Marcel Proust and the Dissident Novelists of Memory By Samuel O’Donoghue, independent scholar

By Thomas C. Neal, University of Akron

How did literary discourse about empire contribute to discussions about the implications of modernity and progress in eighteenth-century Spain? Neal answers by examining how novels, plays and short stories imagined and contested core notions about enlightened knowledge. Expanding upon recent transatlantic and postcolonial approaches to Spain’s Enlightenment that have focused mostly on historiographical and scientific texts, this book disputes the longstanding perception of the Spanish Enlightenment as an “imitative” movement best defined best by its similarities with French and British contexts.

A Sourcebook

Edited by Dennis Barnett, Coe College

Love, Marriage, and Family in Rousseau’s Julie By Mark Kremer, Kennesaw State University

“Barnett has assembled a most informed and engaging sourcebook on DAH Theatre, one of the world’s definitive companies working in social conflict contexts. A work of great breadth that offers a meaningful and enjoying read to the historian, the scholar, and the practitioner, while ultimately managing to paint the rich portrait of a living theater and of the people and societal circumstances that breathe life into it. This is a necessary and revelatory book.” —Roberto Gutiérrez Varea, University of San Francisco

Matt Kremer examines romantic alternatives to modern life in Rousseau’s foundational novel Julie. He argues that Julie is a response to the ills of modern civilization, and that Rousseau saw that the Enlightenment’s combination of science and of democracy degraded human life by making it bourgeois. The bourgeois is man uprooted by science and attached to nothing but himself. He lives a commercial life and his materialism and calculations penetrate all aspects of his existence. He is neither citizen, nor family man, nor lover in any serious sense: his life is meaningless.

Byrd argues that the fascination with learning about the past and new locations in panoramic form spread far from the traditional sites of popular entertainment and amusement. The panorama experience centered on the emergence of a new type of visual language and self-fashioning in material culture adopted by Germans at the turn of the nineteenth century. By reading about what editors, newspaper correspondents, and writers referred to as “panoramas,” curious Germans learned about a new representational medium and a new way to organize and produce knowledge about the scenes on display.

“Robert Pirro’s nuanced readings of Primo Levi’s lesser known fictive works serve to enlarge the possible meanings of Levi’s testimonial writings. He compellingly reconstructs the theories of agency at work in Levi’s fiction and shows how they are intimately connected to his political thought and to his testimony. Pirro’s original analysis demonstrates the relevance of topics not usually discussed in Levi’s work, including family dynamics and political yearnings.” —Nancy Harrowitz, Boston University

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.

Brown Romantics

Involuntary Confessions of the Flesh in Early Modern France

Poetry and Nationalism in the Global Nineteenth Century By Manu Samriti Chander, Rutgers University

Brown Romantics proceeds from the conviction that it is high time for the academy in general and scholars of European Romanticism to acknowledge the extensive international impact of Romantic poetry. Chander demonstrates the importance of Romantic notions of authorship to such poets as Henry Derozio (India), Egbert Martin (Guyana), and Henry Lawson (Australia), using the work of these poets, each prominent in the national cultural of his own country, to explain the crucial role that the Romantic myth of the poet qua legislator plays in the development of nationalist movements across the globe.

By Nora Martin Peterson

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.

Fringe Discourses

Edited by Ryan A. Davis, Illinois State University, and Alicia Cerezo Paredes, University of Wisconsin, Madison “Salvaged from history’s dustbin, the fringe discourses in this study present nineteenthcentury Spain in a fresh and thoughtprovoking way. The essays explore a series of fascinating but often overlooked topics, such as pseudoscience, couvade, pogonology, hypnotism, spiritualism, and more. By shedding light on how science and religion understood human nature during this period, the book shows us that the Spanish nineteenth century still has much to offer to the modern scholar.” —Margot Versteeg, University of Kansas

Death, Eros, and Literary Enterprise in the Opus of Pier Paolo Pasolini

Queenly Philosophers

Pasolini’s Lasting Impressions

By Jane Duran, University of California, Santa Barbara

Edited by Ryan Calabretta-Sajder, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

“With ingeniously careful development Professor Duran convinces us that five names ought to be added to that of Margaret Cavendish as philosophers of the early modern period: Aphra Benn, Elizabeth I, Katharine Paar and Mary Sidney Herbert. A solid case is made that Plato happily would nod ‘yes’ to the question ‘is this a philosopher-Queen?’ Duran makes the case that each was queenly (if not Queen) and had the personal character and requisite philosophic acumen to successfully rule in a Republic-like ideal society.” —Mary Ellen Waithe, emerita, Cleveland State University

“This volume contains many new and quite original readings of Pasolini’s poetry, theater, cinema, and civic engagement, gathered together with admirable passion and care by editor Ryan Calabretta-Sajder.

Female Illness in Italian Literature and Cinema (1860–1920)

Performing Bodies

Greek Tragedy and the Russian Novel

By Catherine Ramsey-Portolano, American University of Rome

“This study fiercely tackles big questions about pain and justice through the bifocal lens of the tragedies of Aescyhlus and Sophocles and the work of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy. By linking depictions of pain to indignation or horror at injustice, Gary Rosenshield discovers a previously unexplored supra-narrative where the multiplicity of possible relationships among victims, perpetrators, and witnesses occupies center stage and transcends differences of time, culture, and ideology.” —Robin Feuer Miller, Brandeis University

Performing Bodies

By Catherine Ramsey-Portolano

This book examines how in Italian literature and film, as well as in society, women were confined to traditional roles and illness often represented the consequence for transgressing those roles. Feigning illness offered women a way to “own” the illness and become masters of their bodies as well as their stories and destinies.

“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 ….

Medical Imagery and Fragmentation

Modernism, Scientific Discourse, and the Mexican/Indigenous Body, 1870–1940s By Dora Alicia Ramírez, Boise State University

Inverted Religious Symbolism in Twentieth-Century Latin American Literature By Patricia E. Reagan, Randolph-Macon College

“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, Hughes, University of Sheffield

“Dora Ramirez examines the writings of Amparo Ruiz de Burton, Teresa Urrea, Maria Cristina Mena, and Josefina Niggli through the critical lens of contemporary medical environmental theories of the body and of the soul. She explodes the modernist concerns with the body and the soul by deploying an eclectic medical humanities and Chicana feminist analysis to highlight the contributions of these stars in the Chicanx literary heavens.” —Norma Cantu, Trinity University

Deconstructing Paradise investigates Christian symbols that appear in Latin American Literature in an inverted way. The texts under investigation invert the Christian center to generate a social, political, cultural, or even artistic commentary. In doing so, each text underscores a search for meaning that rejects the centering presence of the more traditional Christian focus that has long validated humankind’s existence both in society and in literature.

This book marks a time period when Mexican authors writing in English saw themselves as transnational authors whose role was to teach the English speaking public about Mexico. It takes a look at four inspiring women whose ideas represent the way medicine and science permeated the personal lives of Mexican and Indigenous peoples whose lifestyles did not happen to meet the requirements of an industrialized or modern citizenry.

This excellent, interdisciplinary work is essential reading for scholars of the French Caribbean, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Body Studies.” —Renée Larrier, Rutgers University Francis examines the methods through which the works of French Caribbean women resist hedonistic conceptions of pleasure, “art for art’s sake” aestheticism, and commodification through representations of “uglified” spaces, transgressive “deglamorified” women’s bodies in pain and explicit corporeal and sexual behaviors. She offers an original approach through her reading together of the literary, visual, and performing arts (as well as traditional Caribbean dance, music, and oral practices) to arrive at a transregional, transgenre, and transdisciplinary conversation in Francophone, postcolonial, and cultural studies.

The Heroic and the Monstrous in Horacio Quiroga By Todd S. Garth, United States Naval Academy

“A wonderful achievement, and a very welcome addition to scholarship on Horacio Quiroga, a writer of great relevance in our time of ecological crisis. Garth tackles some of the most puzzling questions for Quiroga readers— his ambivalent relationship to science and technology, the tension between his fascination with the menacing aspects of tropical nature and his commitment to what is today known as environmental sustainability, and his apparent misogyny.” —Jennifer L. French, Williams College

“Irune del Rio Gabiola’s work analyzes the lesbian body as site that re-envisions notions of un/becoming, queer family, space, and belonging. 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.

Representing Queer and Transgender Identity

By Mary Beth Tierney-Tello, Wheaton College

Fluid Bodies in the Hispanic Caribbean and Beyond

“This book explores the representations of childhood in 12 works of fiction and two films. Tierney-Tello studies notions of gender, geography, memory, and nation making, connecting these themes to construction and deconstruction of different aspects of Peruvian society. She argues that narratives of coming of age in Peru allow the reimaging of childhood not only to offer personal pasts but also as a national subject to propose nationwide identity and collective cultural memory as a problematic fractured process inside of a multicultural and multiethnic, disrupted society.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

By Alexandra Gonzenbach Perkins, University of Alabama This is the first book-length study of transgender and queer identities in Hispanic Caribbean novels, graphic novels, theatre, and performance art. The author follows the movement of identity from textual spaces to spaces of the body, revealing the variety of representational strategies that dismantle binary readings of gender, sexuality, and nationality. Fluid Bodies demonstrates how transgender and queer subjects reshape and redefine gendered and national belonging through global movement and community making practices.

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.

Syncing the Americas

From Amazons to Zombies

Edited by Ryan Anthony Spangler, Creighton University, and Georg Michael Schwarzmann, Lynchburg College

By Persephone Braham, University of Delaware

José Martí and the Shaping of National Identity

Monsters in Latin America

Monsters inhabit human imaginings of discovery and creation, and also degeneration, chaos, and death. Only in Latin America did Amazons, cannibals, zombies, and other monsters become enduring symbols of regional history, character, and identity. Braham presents a comprehensive account of the qualities of monstrosity, the ways in which monsters function within and among cultures, and theories and genres of the monstrous

The essays in this collection reflect two of Martí’s key observations during his time in the United States: first, how did he, an exile living in New York, view and read his North American neighbors from a sociocultural, political and literary perspective? Second, how did his perception of the modern nation impact his own concepts of race, capital punishment, poetics, and nation building for Cuba?

Uniting Blacks in a Raceless Nation

Blackness, Afro-Cuban Culture, and Mestizaje in the Prose and Poetry of Nicolás Guillén

By Miguel Arnedo-Gómez, Victoria University of Wellington

“This is a fascinating study of the life and art of the national poet of a nation we considered an enemy until recently. 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 and shows how advanced it was as compared to the United States. It is the best biography of Guillén.” —The Washington BookReview

Theatre of the Borderlands Conflict, Violence, and Healing

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

To come to terms with globalization, Caribbean writers adopt unexpected strategies. They write about flowers to help us look at race and sexuality differently. Writing the earth in a dark, queer turn to its materiality allows the imagining of human existence in a new way.

Any ecological perspectives/issues/conditions cannot be separated from their cultural contexts and thus need a culture-specific scrutiny to understand the ethics of ecoculture.

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

Boundaries of the Human in the Study of Persuasion

“Building on Timothy Morton’s concept of ‘dark ecology,’ Richard Schneider has assembled a wide-ranging collection of essays that explore an American literary tradition of disturbing, sinister, and fearful encounters with nature. These ‘antipastoral’ writings provide new perspectives on the continually expanding discourse of ecocriticism.” —David M. Robinson, Oregon State University

Edited by Kristian Bjørkdahl, University of Oslo, and Alex C. Parrish, James Madison University Rhetorical Animals explores what the study of communication and persuasion would look like if it included the voices of all persuasive species, from the microscopic gut bacteria to the charismatic megafauna we know so well. The contributors investigate the place of nonhuman animals in the purview of rhetorical theory; what it would mean to communicate beyond the human community. The book investigates themes that enlighten us about likely or possible implications of the animal turn within rhetorical studies.

“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

By Stacy E. Hoult-Saros, Valparaiso University “Stacy Hoult Saros’ book offers an insightful and necessary lens through which to examine children’s literature and its persistent, misleading view of animals in general and farmed animals in particular. Through HoultSaros’ eyes we learn to perceive children’s literature anew and envision a path that will be more honest to children and enable them to effectively perceive and address injustices and cruelty towards animals. This is a tremendously important contribution and offers a path forward for both children and animals.” —Zoe Weil, President, Institute for Humane Education

This edited collection opens a conversation about the mediated relationship between culture and ecology. The dynamic between these two great forces comes into stark relief when a disaster—in its myriad forms and narratives— reveals the fragility of our ecological and cultural landscapes. Disasters are the clashing of culture and ecology in violent and tragic ways, and the results of each clash create profound effects to both.

In taking up the matter of Derrida’s treatment of animality for the current epoch, the contributors to this book each present a case for new philosophical approaches and aesthetic paradigms that challenge the ocularcentrism of Western culture.

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

Urban Ecologies

Interdisciplinary Essays on Environment and Culture

City Space, Material Agency, and Environmental Politics in Contemporary Culture

One Planet, One Humanity, and the Media

By Christopher Schliephake, University of Augsburg

Edited by Jean-Marie Kauth and Luigi Manca, both Benedictine University

“Christopher Schliephake’s excellent book urban Ecologies stands as a compelling example of the value of the environmental humanities beyond the bounds of the humanities as such. Specifically, this carefully researched, thought-provoking study demonstrates the potential importance of ecocriticism for the fields of urban ecology, urban policy and planning, landscape architecture, and more.” —Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism

This is a collection of essays about the media, the environment, and humanity at the brink of extinction. As overpopulation and of an unsustainable consumer economy dry up existing natural resources and destroy vital ecosystems, the corporate-controlled media saturate worldwide audiences with a barrage of hypnotic images and narratives to stimulate over-consumption and to distract us from the consequences of rampant consumerism, while remaining silent about the systematic destruction of the environment and our future.

Romantic Ecocriticism

NEW

Origins and Legacies

Edited by Dewey W. Hall, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona “Romantic Ecocriticism considers how natural philosophy and science informed, and sometimes influenced, 19th-century English and American Romantic writing.… Hall intends to erode the assumption that these Romantic writers were mere idealists by demonstrating the extent to which they drew on contemporaneous theories from the natural sciences. The essays broaden the critical context of Romantic study by traversing national boundaries to highlight thematic connections between US and English Romantic writers.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Ecotheology and Nonhuman Ethics in Society A Community of Compassion

In bringing these various voices back to the environmentalist’s table, Melissa Brotton winsomely reminds us that the various religious traditions so often ignored as the cause of all our ecological woes might just actually contain the resources for viable solutions. ” —Doug Sikkema, University of Waterloo

A Cultural History of a Conversion Narrative

By Efraim Sicher, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev “Sicher makes a powerful argument about the role of the father-daughter pairing as a centerpiece in the construction of Jewish representation. More than an analysis of conversion or anti-Semitism, this study leads us on an encyclopedic journey across time and space to explore an understudied pattern of constructed Jewish difference. The Jew and his daughter, Sicher demonstrates, have an impressive history of shaping discourses of gender, sexuality, race, and nation throughout Europe.” —Heidi Kaufman, University of Oregon

By Olfa Youssef, University of Manouba Translated by Lamia Benyoussef, Birmingham-Southern College

“This translation is an anthology of ‘documents specifically portraying various aspects of the Jewish experience in the North African lands of the Islamic West.’ Its broader aim, however, is to demonstrate that ‘anti-Jewish persecution has been endemic to Muslim North Africa’ and to refute the claim that Islam provided a more open and tolerant home for Jews than Christian Europe….

Imagining the Jewish God

Qur’an and the Lyric Imperative

Edited by Leonard Kaplan, emeritus, University of Wisconsin, and Ken KoltunFromm, Haverford College

By Richard Serrano, Rutgers University

“There has long been in contemporary Jewish thought a large absence just where, one imagined, God ought to be. This volume’s editors and contributors jump bravely into the breach, armed only with classical scholarship, philosophic understanding, literary sensitivity, moral urgency and, before and after all else, imagination. The result 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

“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.” —Samer Ali, University of Michigan 2016 • 248 pages 978-1-4985-2070-6 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2071-3 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

Catholic Literature and Film Incarnational Love and Suffering

By Nancy Enright, Seton Hall University

By Nicholas J. Frederick, Brigham Young University

Frederick 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. He takes up the argument 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. Frederick further argues that the manner in which Smith incorporates the Johannine Prologue is by no means uniform but actually quite creative, taking (at least) four different forms: Echo, Allusion, Expansion, and Inversion.

The Postcolonial Subject in Transit presents in-depth analyses of the complex transitional migratory identities evident in emerging African diasporic writings. It provides insights into the hybridity of the migrant experience, where the migrant struggles to negotiate new cultural spaces. It shows that while some migrants successfully adapt and integrate into new Western locales, others exist at the margins unable to fully negotiate cultural difference. The diaspora becomes a space for opportunities and economic mobility, as well as alienation and uncertainties. This illuminates the heterogeneity of the African diasporic narrative; expanding the dialogue of the diaspora, from one of simply loss and melancholia to self-realization and empowerment.

Bilingual and Multicultural Perspectives on Poetry, Music, and Narrative

If Oscar Wilde Ate People

By Geoff Klock, Borough of Manhattan Community College Taking Bryan Fuller’s television version of Hannibal The Cannibal Lecter as its main text—and taking Žižek-style illustrative detours into Malcolm in the Middle, Dark Knight Rises, Harry Potter, Interview with a Vampire, Dexter and more—this book marshals Camille Paglia, Nietzsche, the Marquis de Sade, Kant and Plato, as well as Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Baudelaire, Beckett, and David Mamet to argue that Fuller’s show is a deceptively brilliant advance of aestheticism, both in form and content—one that investigates how deeply art-for-art’s-sake are necessarily entwined with evil.

The Science of Art

By Norbert Francis, Northern Arizona University Bilingual and multicultural approaches to the study of literature and music give the most complete panorama of the problems related to understanding artistic ability and sensibility. Norbert Francis argues that poetic, narrative, and musical abilities are an intrinsic part of human nature. He takes a cross-cultural approach that also considers contact and interaction between different languages. He reviews relevant research, and challenges popular views in academia associated with cultural studies and related fields that have rejected the methods of modern science.

Unbecoming Female Monsters Witches, Vampires, and Virgins

By Cristina Santos, Brock University “Cristina Santos offers an incisive examination of female embodiment and the ‘monstrous woman.’ Organized in chapters that address various stages of the female life cycle, Santos reads the commodification of female sexuality and reproduction in relation to three key tropes: witch, vampire, and virgin. Drawing on fairy tales, mythology, literature, film, and television, Santos considers how women’s designation as monster has deleterious effects on females’ ability to form productive relationships with self and other.” —Natalie Wilson, California State University, San Marcos

“These eclectic essays demonstrate that evil ‘has functionally grown beyond its limited construction in the fields of theology and moral philosophy.’ They examine evil as an interpretative category in pop fiction (Stephen King, Deon Meyer), mass media (television, comic books), literature (Poe, Shakespeare, Marlowe), and historiography and contemporary politics (slavery, Auschwitz, the war on terror). One theme running through many of these disparate studies is the use of evil to denote monstrosity and otherness of various kinds. Another theme is the problem of personal agency and responsibility.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“How do migration and translocation ‘provincialize’ English, the colonial language par excellence, and forge different shades of English tuned to the particular experience of different refugees, exiled, emigrants, and simply travelers? This volume provides a wealth of examples of linguistic transmogrification, alteration and enrichment by drawing on cases selected from the United Kingdom, postcommunist Eastern Europe, Iran, the Caribbean, as well as the Chinese diaspora.” —Lavinia Stan, St. Francis Xavier University

“The Media Environment of Political Thought proposes that revolutionary political thought and new media technologies exist in a dialectical relationship. By demonstrating how the material production of the text itself is imbricated in the expression of ideas, their circulation and reception, Shamis provides a much-needed and original approach to reading political theory. Written with great clarity and precision, the book deftly moves from Rousseau and Marx to our current moment of networked digital dissemination.” —Alyson Cole, City University of New York

Popular Myths about Memory

Innovations in English Language Teaching in India

Media Representations versus Scientific Evidence By Brian H. Bornstein, University of Nebraska, Lincoln

Trends in Language Pedagogy and Technology

“A highly readable antidote to the many stubbornly popular misconceptions about human memory. Using an engaging mix of popular films and empirical data, Bornstein effectively illustrates both the pervasiveness of memory myths and the evidence that exposes their fictional status. Memory is not about documenting the past. It is about using past experience to function adaptively in the present..” —Matt J. Rossano, Southeastern Louisiana University

Visions of the Apocalypse and Post-Apocalypse in Literature and Visual Arts

You’re Not Cool Just Because You Teach with Comics

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

Edited by Edward A. Janak, University of Toledo, and Ludovic A. Sourdot, Texas Woman’s University

This book focuses on legends and images of the apocalypse and post-apocalypse in film and graphic arts, literature and lore from early to modern times and from cultures around the world. It reflects an increasingly popular leitmotif in literature and visual arts of the modern century: humanity’s fear of extinction and quest for survival—in revenant, supernatural, or living human form. The collected essays examine the origins and evolution of myths and legends of the supernatural in Western and non-Western tradition and popular culture

“Janak and Sourdot have produced an impressive collection that covers a helpful range of educational approaches and practices. The book is an invaluable resource for teachers who wish to thoughtfully incorporate diverse popular forms and encourage students to think meaningfully and critically about the world of entertainment surrounding them.” —Ann Larabee, Michigan State University

This volume features the very best of the decade that changed America’s racial topography, riveting images that sent shock waves around the globe.” —Paul Delaney, Former New York Times National Editor “Michael DiBari’s book details the evolution, impact, and significance of Life’s coverage, and by so doing shows how much has been lost in the tepid equivalency journalism of today.” —Michael Carlebach, Historian & Photographer

“Schweitzer reflects on the poetry and prose Paul Celan, Charlotte Delbo, Olga Lengyel, Gisella Perl, and Dan Pagis wrote as testimony to the suffering of women and children who died in German concentration camps in WW II. Drawing on writings of Derrida, Levinas, Lyotard, and Freud, Schweitzer examines, as she writes in the epilogue, the relations ‘between the subject and other, and the text and its other.’… Though Schweitzer focuses in particular on the female, this volume illuminates the enormity of the atrocity Nazi’s perpetrated on its victims, regardless of gender, sexual, artistic, ethnic, religious, or intellectual identity..., Recommended.” —CHOICE 2016 • 134 pages 978-0-7391-9007-4 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9008-1 • $71.00 / £47.95 • eBook

Misfit Children

The Rhetorical Power of Children’s Literature

Edited by Markus Bohlmann, Seneca College

“Covering everything from picture books, to bedtime stories, to young adult literature, the essays look beyond story lines to reveal the rhetoric that lies beneath. For example, one essay uses a Marxist lens to examine allegories depicting the harmful effects of industrial capitalism; another uses a Western perspective in considering allegories supporting the notion that hard work and intelligence lead to security and economic prosperity. In other words, with their books children’s authors often reveal the ideologies and values that they wish their readers to have. … Recommended.” —CHOICE

“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, Slendermanattributed tween violence, and the medical normalization of transkids.

Bruce Franklin, Rutgers University

The City Since 9/11 Literature, Film, Television

Edited by Keith Wilhite, Siena College White analyzes post-9/11 literature, film, and television through an interdisciplinary lens, taking into account contemporary debates about spatial practices, gentrification, cosmopolitanism, memory and history, nostalgia, the uncanny and the abject, postmodern virtuality, the politics of realism, and the economic and social life of cities.

This book places prison witness at the center of discussions of the human experience of law and order, and of the nature of the rights-bearing person. Readings of canonical and contemporary writers facing incarceration yield abiding literary tropes that chart the path from institutional abjection toward the minimal threshold of personhood.

Critical Essays on Ethnic Women Writers

Blake to George Sodini

Community Boundaries and Border Crossings Edited by Kristen Lillvis, Marshall University; Robert Miltner, Kent State University, Stark; and Molly Fuller, Kent State University

Romanticism, Gender, and Violence By Nowell Marshall, Rider University “It is a rare thing—a work of literary criticism and history that also issues an important call to contemporary social change…. Marshall’s message…is a welcome and timely one, and he succeeds in delivering it in a convincing and well-historicized medium of cultural analysis…. Nothing gets in the way of the power of Marshall’s reading and the saliency of his argument. This is an ambitious, clever, and important book—a major contribution for those of us who study Romanticism, and an awakening for us all.” —Eighteenth-Century Fiction

This collection explores issues of diaspora, transnationality, cultural hybridity, home, and identity that are central to ethnic women writers. 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.

Romanticism, Origins, and the History of Heredity

The Rise of Astro-Blackness

Edited by Reynaldo Anderson, Harris-Stowe State University, and Charles E. Jones, University of Cincinnati

By Christine Lehleiter, University of Toronto

“Afrofuturism 2.0 proves to be not only an educational experience, but a necessary provocation of questions on Pan-Arab culture, which may be read through various Palestinian states of being—whether present, absent, or imagined.... Taken from a wider perspective, Afrofuturism can be moulded into a vibrant, analytical framework for exploring notions and practices of temporality in African cultural production. Indeed, the numerous studies and examples that unfold across the different parts of the book point to the rising instrumentalization of futurist and sci-fi aesthetics as important politically charged practices.” —Tohu

“This work has the potential to change the landscape of Romantic literary studies, and its careful attention to scientific accuracy will serve as a model for scholars in fields intersecting literature and science.” —Monatshefte

“Lehleiter’s highly original monograph is the first to examine the German novel of the turn of the nineteenth century in the context of the debates on biological heredity (ranging from plant and animal breeding to early theories of evolution) taking place in the eighteenth century.” —Jane K.

Consuming Agency and Desire in Romance Stories of Love, Laughter, and Empowerment

By Jenni M. Simon, University of North Carolina, Greensboro The romance industry has profited on the fantasies of women for centuries. However, as a new generation of women raised under the guidance of second-wave feminists take up the reigns of romance production, romance novels and films have increasingly challenged tired stereotypes labeling romantic stories as formulaic fodder. This book examines how the romance genre serves women in multiple ways, from escapism to sexual education, from fantasy to fun, and most importantly, as a site of production for feminist texts.

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.

She shows how French-language comics about the Algerian War have both shaped and reinterpreted historical memories and consequently affected France’s relationship to its colonial past as well as its legacy in the present. Her book engages with colonial/postcolonial studies, history, and memory.” —The Journal of North African Studies

Literary Worlds and Deleuze

The Polyphonic World of Cervantes and Dostoevsky

Expression as Mimesis and Event

By Zornitsa Dimitrova, independent scholar

By Slav N. Gratchev, Marshall University

Dimitrova contributes to debates on mimesis by offering an ‘expressionist’ take on the generation of literary worlds in drama. In examining plays by Sarah Kane, Martin Crimp, Caryl Churchill, and Laura Wade, the book 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.

This is the first scholarly examination of Don Quixote from the angle of dialogism and polyphony. It articulates, without reducing the role of Dostoevsky in the creation of the polyphonic novel and relying on Bakhtin’s interpretation of polyphony, heteroglossia, and multivoicedness, that the polyphonic structure appeared and evolved to a state of relative maturity centuries before Dostoevsky. The book explores how and why the polyphonic structure was born within the classic monophonic structure of Don Quixote.

Recasting the Self with Augustine, Descartes, Marion, and Derrida

Subjectivity as Radical Hospitality

The Theater as a Presence or Factor in the Real World

By John Martis, Pilgrim Theological College

“This collection explores how ‘offstage’ theatrical performances—not on a theater stage or that break the fourth wall—impact the audience and may be the necessary ingredient to the continued vitality of theatrical performance.… Contributors describe how the actor-audience relationship, inside and outside the theater space, can transform the audience’s visceral involvement in the journey of the play. Flash mobs, political advocacy, and digital technology are some ways in which cultural phenomena are mined for these theatrical re-creations and representations.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Intervervening in a lively debate in contemporary European philosophy, this book offers a radically revisioned account of the self subjected to experience. Patiently yet vigorously engaging Jean-Luc Marion’s reading of selfhood in St Augustine, Martis reaches back deeply into the Western Philosophical tradition to propose a bold solution to the phemomenological problem of how a self can recognise an other, while remiaining itself. Insights from Descartes, Kant, Derrida, Blanchot, Romano and others are brought together to undergird an account of a self that remains itself only in ceaseless loss to necessary incursions of the other.

Heart’s Reasons

By Robert S. Cantwell, emeritus, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Edited by Maria Margaroni, University of Cyprus; Apostolos Lampropoulos, University Bordeaux Montaigne; and Christakis Chatzichristou, University of Cyprus

This book, a literary-critical work on love, argues that romantic love originates neither in the gratification of appetite nor in the sexual drive, but in the nurturing relation of caregiver and child. When we distinguish between self and other, love engages our aesthetic and analytic capacities together to recognize and to create the beloved. Close readings of two widely read novels, Dickens’ Great Expectations and Nabokov’s Lolita, preside over the discussion, exploring these authors’ distinctively detailed and probing accounts of love’s unfolding in particular social, cultural, historical and psychological settings

The Motif of the Messianic

By Wanda Torres Gregory, Simmons College

Law, Life, and Writing in Agamben’s Reading of Derrida By Arthur Willemse, University of Sussex

The Motif of the Messianic By Arthur Willemse

“In evaluating Torres Gregory’s lucidly written study, there is much to commend…. Perhaps the most important virtue of the book is its ability to express Heidegger’s self-consciously ‘reticent’ thinking of language in a remarkably clear and coherent schema, helping to make Heidegger’s challenging views on language accessible to a more mainstream analytic audience…. At the same time, she introduces a number of interpretive theses regarding this development of Heidegger’s thinking of language that are both novel and convincing.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

This book explores the relationship between the works of Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Derrida. By examining the motif of the messianic, Arthur Willemse explains how Agamben’s thought renders Derridean terminology inoperative and how the substance of Derrida’s thought transforms through Agamben’s reading of it. He argues that this is Agamben’s way of undoing a theological structure of thought that philosophy has unknowingly appropriated and highlighting the theological stakes implicated in the problematic of truth and life.

Chiasmatic Encounters Art, Ethics, Politics

Edited by Kuisma Korhonen, University of Oulu; and Arto Haapala, Sara Heinämaa, Kristian Klockars and Pajari Räsänen, all University of Helsinki The concept of chiasm has played major role in continental philosophy where it has referred to various phenomenological and hermeneutic structures of reversibility, intertwining, and encounter. Eaasys expert analyze this central concept and its significance for contemporary cultural theory, discussing the work of major philosophers like Merleau-Ponty, Beauvoir, Habermas, Levinas, Derrida, and Deleuze. The book addresses also the chiasmatic crossing between ethics and politics—between the unconditional ethical responsibility and the always conditional political choices.

Material Discourse—Materialist Analysis Approaches in Discourse Studies

NEW

Freedom of Speech and the Function of Rhetoric in the United States

Edited by Veit Schwab and Johannes Beetz, both University of Warwick

By Michael Donnelly, Ball State University

“Michael Donnelly’s important study takes a critical look at the issue of ‘free speech’ and the uses to which free speech arguments are put in U.S. political discourse. Exposing what he terms ‘a collection of false narratives’ at the root of liberal theories of free speech, Donnelly’s findings run against the grain of conventional approaches to the subject, some of which are either implicitly or overtly at work in composition classes across the country.” —Susan C. Jarratt, University of California, Irvine

Material Discourse—Materialist Analysis explores the entanglement of material realities and discourse and shows how a materialist discourse analysis can be put into practice. A cognate concern for language and discourse, as well as well as materiality and materialism can look back on a long tradition in the Social Sciences and Humanities. This book makes their relation an explicit focus. Located at the intersections of materialism and Discourse Studies, it highlights the materiality of discourse and the entanglement of matter and meaning.

Defending the Philosophical Life

From Socrates to Stephen Colbert

Readings of Plato’s Apology of Socrates

Rhetoric, Humor, and the Public Sphere

Edited by Vivil Valvik Haraldsen, University of Bergen; and Knut Olof Gunnar Pettersson and Oda E. Wiese Tvedt, both Uppsala University

Readings of Plato’s Apology of Socrates

by Vivil Valvik Haraldsen

By Elizabeth Benacka, Lake Forest College “Benacka offers a broad view of the rhetoric of humor. In six chapters, she broadly covers the history and practice of humor in the US, and specifically offers a case study of the public rhetoric of satirist Stephen Colbert. Colbert’s uses of parody, irony, and satire in such contexts as his performance at a 2006 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, his testimony in 2010 to the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee, and his 2012 Super PAC ‘Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow’ are examined…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Contributors to this volume discuss a wide breadth of topics relevant to the Apology, including the literary images, the unfolding drama, the historical contexts, and the confrontation between philosophy and politics. They focus on the character of Socrates as the embodiment of philosophy, employing this as a starting point for exploring various themes exposed in the Apology. These include the relation of philosophy to democracy, rhetoric, politics, and society in general, as well as the overarching question of what comprises the philosophic life.

The Late Bronze and Early Iron Age Context of Odysseus’ Second Cretan Lie

By Jeffrey P. Emanuel, Harvard University

Black Ships and Sea Raiders By Jeffrey P. Emanuel

“This impressive book expands postmodern critical theory by using the Zen Buddhist understanding of emptiness to accomplish his goal. With the philosophy of Levinas influencing the discussion, a focus on the role of the other plays a major role in the work, an emphasis that is insightfully and creatively presented with discussions of Job, Dracula, and Frankenstein. The book is worth reading just for these chapters. In short, Lee’s admirable book is a welcome addition to comparative philosophy and ethics.” —Carl Olson, Allegheny College

“Black Ships and Sea Raiders is tour de force that picks up the story of the Trojan heroes where 1177, Homer’s Odyssey, and Old Testament tales of the Philistines leave off, giving us new answers by redirecting emphasis to maritime technology and culture along with an astounding collection of Bronze Age textual sources. In doing so, it redirects us from the lopsided attention on the Philistines to the Sherden and other ‘Sea Peoples.’” —Louise A. Hitchcock, University of Melbourne

“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.

Visualizing the Text

Merging Travel, Theory, and Commentary

From Manuscript Culture to the Age of Caricature

Edited by Lauren Beck and Christina Ionescu, both Mount Allison University

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.

“An impressive body of seminal scholarship, Visualizing the Text is a truly exceptional collection of twelve insightfully informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking articles, and features illustrations, an informative introduction by Christina Ionescu, and a ten page index. The book is an unreservedly recommended and critically analytic contribution to college and university library Contemporary Literary Studies collections in general, and Visual Culture supplemental studies reading lists in particular.” —Midwest Book Review

Narrative Faith

By Alejandra M. Salinas, Universidad Católica Argentina

Dostoevsky, Camus, and Singer

By David Stromberg, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

“This work fills a place in Borges’ scholarship, which has overwhelmingly concentrated on his contribution to twentieth century literature and especially his deployment of overtly philosophical themes.... Salinas’ arguments are persuasive and cogently laid out. The book moves at a steady pace and covers surprising amounts of ground economically, giving more for a reader to consider in its 110 pages than may be expected of typical works of its kind.” —VoegelinView

David Stromberg engages with the dynamics of doubt and faith to consider how literary works with complex structures explore different moral visions. He describes a literary petite histoire that problematizes faith in two ways—both in the themes presented in the story, and the strategies used to tell that story—leading readers to doubt the narrators and their narratives. The study examines works by twentieth-century authors who similarly intensify questions of faith through narrators that generate doubt.

Human, All Too (Post)Human

Literature and the Conservative Ideal

The Humanities after Humanism

Edited by Mark Zunac, University of Wisconsin, Whitewater

“Scholarship on conservative literary traditions, conservative approaches to literary analysis, and conservative writers has become increasingly rare in the Humanities. I welcome with more than ordinary gratitude the wisdom and moral balance of these otherwise silenced voices. ” —Ruth Wisse, Harvard University

Edited by Jennifer Cotter, William Jewell College; Kimberly DeFazio, University of Wisconsin, La Crosse; Robert Faivre, SUNY Adirondack; Amrohini Sahay, Hofstra University; Julie P. Torrant, Kingsborough Community College; Stephen Tumino, Manhattan Community College; and Robert Wilkie, University of Wisconsin, La Crosse

This book seeks to illuminate the ways in which cultural framing diminishes the complexity of free speech, and sublimates a range of valuechoices. The issue has a great deal more to do with social norms rooted in a web of cultural assumptions about the function of rhetoric in social organization generally, and in a democratic society specifically.

“This uncommon book is a philosophically insightful and erudite analysis of the contemporary situation with deep political commitment to social change. 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 for a future free from wage labor.” —Peter McLaren, Northeast Normal University, China

Edited by Tim Lanzendörfer, University of Mainz

Here existentialism becomes coexistentialism, and through it we glimpse a chance to strengthen our existence together on a fragile planet. Make this book part of your coexistence!” —Clayton Crockett, University of Central Arkansas

“Lanzendörfer has compiled an impressive variety of essays dealing with genre in the postmodern age and beyond…. Few collections address the interactions and functions of so-called artistic fiction and ‘lowbrow’ entertainment as aggressively and productively as do the contributors to this collection. Investigating the liminal area between popular and ‘literary’ work has always been hazardous, and this book makes it even more so in that it ventures into narrative forms outside the novel itself, especially film and television….

Levinas and Twentieth-Century Literature considers how the work of the century’s most original ethical thinker may reshape understandings of modernism, postmodernism, postcolonialism, feminism, gender studies, and globalism. In thirteen essays on writers ranging from Virginia Woolf and A. A. Milne to J. M. Coetzee and Cormac McCarthy, Wehrs puts the thought of the twentieth century’s most innovative ethical philosopher, Emmanuel Levinas, in dialogue with established twentieth-century masterpieces.

ABOUT LEXINGTON BOOKS’ LITERARY STUDIES PROGRAMME Founded in 1970, Lexington Books serves as Rowman & Littlefield’s imprint for publishing specialised 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 8 1/2” by 11” 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. 9. List of peer reviewers.

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