Sinophone Malaysian Literature:

Not Made in China
Alison M. Groppe
ISBN: 9781604978551

"Well-researched. With its comprehensive coverage, focused treatment, and lucid exposition, Sinophone Malaysian Literature marks a key reference volume in the English language on the topic. This laudable book-length study has laid a solid foundation upon which scholars can investigate further to yield fresher insights about the uneasy making of modern Sinophone Southeast Asian subjects and their hybrid cultural identities." - Southeast Asian Studies Read More..

The Assassination of Shakespeare's Patron:

Investigating the Death of the Fifth Earl of Derby (2nd Edition)
Leo Daugherty
ISBN: 9781604978469

“This study of Lord Strange’s murder is cogent and marked by deep knowledge of the Age of Shakespeare. The peripheral illumination of Shakespeare’s stage career is very valuable.” – Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University Read More..

Edgar Allan Poe:

An Archetypal Reading
Rouhollah Zarei
ISBN: 9781604978476

This book takes the confident critical stance of resisting being limited by a singular--Jungian–-approach, even though this would have been a convenient, even expected, route to take. Instead, Poe is studied from an archetypal perspective. This approach is also used to deal with symbols in a framework, but the structure is more extensive because it attempts to address symbols not as symptoms in pathological cases but as normal phenomena in life.

Literature by the Working Class:

English Autobiographies, 1820–1848
Cassandra Falke
ISBN: 9781604978452

"The close and insightful readings of these texts are a worthy contribution. ... Literature by the Working Class balances formal analysis of individual texts with larger questions about social and literary history, moving deftly from one to the other and intertwining them into a compelling argument. ... This treatment of working-class autobiography as intrinsically valuable as literature in its own right is welcome and long overdue." - Victorian Studies Read More..

Christian Mysticism and Australian Poetry

Toby Davidson
ISBN: 9781604978445

"A groundbreaking study ... A particularly pleasing feature is the attention given to women poets ... ... Davidson, in touching on some fifty Australian poets and a multitude of mystics, is discerning and generous ... His bibliography should prove invaluable to future researchers." - JASAL Read More..

The Male Empire Under the Female Gaze:

The British Raj and the Memsahib
Susmita Roye and Rajeshwar Mittapalli
ISBN: 9781604978438

This book argues that although the memsahib’s female gaze has been spoken of, it has not been adequately emphasized and examined. Aiming at filling that gap by uncovering the world of British India as seen and shown by white women in colonial as well as postcolonial literatures, this compilation brings together scholarly essays on memsahibs’ literature and Raj writings, including men’s writings about memsahibs, spanning from before India’s independence to the post-Independence period. Read More..

Philip Roth and the Zuckerman Books:

The Making of a Storyworld
Pia Masiero
ISBN: 9781604977547

“A well-researched and sophisticated study with an extensive bibliography… Particularly impressive is the international range of the scholarship, referring, in addition to criticism in English, to works in Italian, Spanish, and French, for which she provides her own translations … Pia Masiero’s study is impressive in its scholarship … This is a groundbreaking study of the Zuckerman books and an excellent addition to Roth studies.” – Philip Roth Studies Read More..

The Avant-Garde Imperative:

The Visionary Quest for a New Language
Willard Bohn
ISBN: 9781604978353

As the twentieth century dawned, artists and writers became convinced that there was more to reality than physical appearance and turned their gaze inward and adopted a number of unconventional approaches. Paradoxically, considering that they strove to give a more faithful impression of reality, their experiments were overwhelmingly anti-realistic. This book illuminates this period of modern aesthetics. It will appeal not only to scholars of twentieth-century literature but also to those working in the field of modern art. Read More..

Rethinking Chineseness:

Translational Sinophone Identities in the Nanyang Literary World
E. K. Tan
ISBN: 9781604978407

This is the first book devoted to Sinophone Southeast Asian literature in the English-speaking world. Conceptually innovative and flawlessly written, this book makes an important contribution ... Anyone interested in questions of identity calibrated through such vectors as language, culture, history, geography, and nationality will find this book to be extremely valuable. This is an impressive accomplishment.” – Professor Shu-mei Shih, University of California at Los Angeles Read More..
