Reading Lu Xun Through Carl Jung

Carolyn Brown

Reading John Banville Through Jean Baudrillard

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..

The Political Character of Tony Harrison’s Poetry
Christine Regan

Regan’s work offers many new and valuable insights." —English - Journal of the English Association Read More..

A most welcome addition ...
