Strangers at Home:

Place, Belonging, and Australian Life Writing
Jack Bowers
ISBN: 9781604979343

"A very accessible and readable volume, as well as intriguing and original in its approach. Bowers has achieved something here that is unique, and that should appeal to anyone who has given any thought to the character of their life, to the stories through which their life is shaped, to the places with which their life is inextricably entangled." —Jeff Malpas, Distinguished Professor, University of Tasmania Read More..

The Poetics and Politics of Sensuality in China:

The “Fragrant and Bedazzling” Movement (1600-1930)
Xiaorong Li
ISBN: 9781604979527

"The scholarship in this study is impeccable. Each chapter presents an in-depth analysis of interesting and important writers or collections ... Many original sources are presented, discussed, and accurately translated for the first time. I doubt that anyone can match this author's mastery of the renegade tradition of 'sensuous poetry' during the Ming, Qing, and early Republican Period." —Ronald Egan, Stanford University Read More..

Reading Literature After Deconstruction

Robert Lumsden
ISBN: 9781604975260

"This book is a valuable resource, particularly for students and teachers of poetry, but also for those with an interest in the place of theory in literary studies. Rarely ever is theory illustrated so clearly in practice. The author’s passion for poetry, and its place on university curricula, is laudable, and a voice currently much needed among professional academics." - Transnational Literature Read More..

Reading Blindly:

Literature, Otherness, and the Possibility of an Ethical Reading
Jeremy Fernando
ISBN: 9781604976335

This book attempts to conceive of the possibility of an ethics of reading––“reading” being understood as the relation to an other that occurs prior to any semantic or formal identification, and therefore prior to any attempt at assimilating what is being read to the one who reads. Read More..

Reading Landscape in American Literature:

The Outside in the Fiction of Don DeLillo
Tyler H. Kessel
ISBN: 9781604977554

This study argues for a new model of reading landscape in the twentieth- and twenty-first-century American novel. The author takes as exemplary the novels of Don DeLillo—and in particular the main focus of this study, The Body Artist—which have constructed landscapes that exceed the limits of geography, time, and perception. Read More..

Reading Lu Xun Through Carl Jung

Carolyn Brown
ISBN: 9781604979374

“This is truly a great contribution not only to Lu Xun studies but also to modern Chinese intellectual history. The approach is seminal and convincing. The arguments based on close reading of the texts are careful, coherent, and revealing. What Carolyn T. Brown has accomplished in this book is akin to a highly skilled doctor who makes an accurate etiological diagnosis." —Guoxiang Peng, Zhejiang University Read More..

Reading John Banville Through Jean Baudrillard

Hedda Friberg-Harnesk
ISBN: 9781604979534

"Hedda Friberg-Harnesk’s brilliant new study offers an original and intimate analysis of John Banville’s preoccupations with disguise, duplicity, and simulation. In this incisive reading, deeply informed by the work of Jean Baudrillard, ... Friberg-Harnesk shows us how to read Banville, and to read him well, as a writer not just troubled by modernist problems of existence and representation, but determined to explore the creative and restorative strategies necessary to cope with them." —Professor John Brannigan, University College Dublin Read More..
