The Fiction of Thea Astley

Susan Sheridan
ISBN: 9781604979329

Thea Astley (1925-2004) was one of the outstanding Australian fiction writers of the twentieth century. Despite the deeply Australian objects of her satire, Astley’s innovative fictions have attracted critical attention beyond national boundaries, and her later work, especially, struck a chord with readers in North America. This book examines her works and reveals the reasons why Astley's works resonated with not only Australian readers but also an international audience. Read More..

Plato on Women:

Revolutionary Ideas for Gender Equality in an Ideal Society
Harald Haarmann
ISBN: 9781604979183

What has been produced up to the present regarding Plato's positions on the agenda of gender are disparate studies whose scope falls short of the whole range of angles from which Plato himself approached the issues, and the study of gender issues in Plato has remained unsystematic so far. In this book, Harald Haarmann provides the first systematic analysis of Plato's positions on gender and the role of women in an ideal society. Read More..

The Rimbaud of Leeds:

The Political Character of Tony Harrison’s Poetry
Christine Regan
ISBN: 9781604979275

"Meticulously researched ... an unusually astute and impressively well informed guide to the poetry. ... In the age of Trump and Brexit, there is a certain pathos to seeing this one time member of the ‘white working class’ prove so inclined to side with postcolonial peoples in their struggles with the architects of the post-war order. ... Regan’s work offers many new and valuable insights." —English - Journal of the English Association Read More..

Supernatural Sinophone Taiwan and Beyond

Chia-rong Wu
ISBN: 9781604979213

“This book examines some interesting, significant types and aspects of Sinophone Taiwan fiction, as well as a number of prominent writers and representative works. Focusing on the narratives of the strange, it connects the trope of ghost haunting with Taiwan’s complex ethnoscapes and historical, colonial trauma. ... An excellent, timely study on the important but understudied Sinophone Taiwan literature.” – Yenna Wu, University of California, Riverside Read More..

Impressive in depth and breadth, the book is lucid and analytical.” —Olufemi Vaughan, Bowdoin College Read More..

Symptoms of Disorder:

Reading Madness in British Literature 1744-1845
Ilaria Natali and Annalisa Volpone
ISBN: 9781604979251

Few studies have offered a comprehensive picture by looking at the alleged insanity of the writer, and at those linguistic, stylistic and semantic elements which at some stage were commonly believed to be an expression of insanity. This book is one of the first to address the representation of madness from both these intertwined perspectives. Read More..
