Reconstructing Identity and Truth
John Dean
ISBN: 9781604976311

Through a postcolonial lens, this study negotiates travel and encounter narratives that imagine and re-imagine New Mexico during one of its most dynamic shifts in identity: from the mid-19th century (when the United States conquered Mexico and made New Mexico a U.S. territory) to the mid-20th century when the Native American literary renaissance began). Issues of identity (transformed by the New Mexico landscape) and race, religion and culture (through the lens of colonialism) are illuminated and clearly explained . Read More..

Harper and the Editing of Jennie Gerhardt
Annemarie Koning Whaley

This study carefully compares the restored edition to the 1911 edition, revealing clear and precise patterns to the Harper editing.

Unnatural Reproductions and Monstrosity:

The Birth of the Monster in Literature, Film, and Media
Andrea Wood and Brandy Schillace
ISBN: 9781604978803

Much has been written about gender and the monstrous, but sustained engagement with textual manifestations of cultural and unconscious fears and anxieties about “unnatural” reproduction has been limited. This book expands the current discourse and analyzes how fears about unnatural reproduction and monstrous offspring—and their frequent connections to the feminine—have proliferated and propagated across the very texts which are repetitively created and consumed. Read More..

The Significance of Disability and Physical Differences in 19th-Century Fiction
Lillian Craton

Virginia Woolf:

Experiments in Character
Eric Sandberg
ISBN: 9781604978667

"Boldly takes up the problem of character and characterization in Woolf’s novels. Rightly insists that a deep-seated concern with character and character creation runs throughout Woolf’s work, from her earliest book reviews to her latest fiction, providing a focus for understanding Woolf’s development as a writer. ...An unusual, but oddly satisfying book. The individual readings are thorough, nuanced, and closely detailed. Sandberg is to be commended ... Sandberg has written a thoughtful, meticulous, and convincing study of Woolf’s novels." – Woolf Studies Annual Read More..
