Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist
Brigitta Olubas

Sinophone Malaysian Literature:

Not Made in China
Alison M. Groppe

This kind of investigation into the links between masque staging and the staging of plays has not been done in quite this manner before. Read More..

Nickolas A. Haydock
ISBN: 9781604977660

“All in all, Haydock’s book takes its position alongside the very best studies of Robert Henryson and eclipses most if not all of them. Situation Poetics in Robert Henryson’s Testament of Cresseid is a sophisticated and nuanced study of one of Scotland’s greatest poets and should prove engaging and invaluable to anyone studying the literature of late-medieval Britain.” – Enarratio Read More..
