Crime culture : figuring criminality in fiction and film( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring crime in works which are not usually associated with crime genres, this work breathes new life into staple themes in crime fiction/cinema such as gender, the body and the city, and offers analyses of new elements such as the mythology of the hitman and the cultural impact of 'senseless' murders
Essays and studies, 2003 : Victorian women poets( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specially commissioned essays in Victorian Women Poets offer revisionary readings of canonical poets and bring into focus re-discovered writers. The volume both engages critically with the political and aesthetic agenda behind the project of recovery, and also presents a pioneering approach to reading poets who have slipped out of the canon. The work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti is re-assessed and given surprising and innovative literary, political and intellectual contexts that will change the way we interpret their poetry. Writers of emerging significance, such as Theodosia Garrow Trollope, Augusta Webster, Mathilde Blind, Michael Field and Margaret Veley, are given prominence in groundbreaking analysis that situates their writing within the wider debates of the period. The themes interwoven throughout the essays--literary history and canonicity, political poetics, nationhood, print culture, and genre--provide a radically new understanding of Victorian women's poetry that maps an agenda for future research
Haunting and spectrality in neo-Victorian fiction : possessing the past( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining works by writers including Michle Roberts, Michael Faber and A.S. Byatt, this collection highlights the pervasive presence of the Victorian past in neo-Victorian novels through the tropes of haunting and spectrality, parallelling a renewed interest in the impact of the supernatural and the occult on Victorian individuals"--Provided by publisher
Vernon Lee : decadence, ethics, aesthetics( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the work of the aesthete and intellectual Vernon Lee, this collection offers a wide range of critical writings that reflect the diversity of Lee's own interests. Organized in a broadly chronological order these essays examine key pieces in Lee's oeuvre, offering original approaches to a number of Lee's works including Euphorion, Hauntings: Fantastic Stories, Prince Albert and the Lady Snake, Louis Norbert, The Ballet of the Nations, The Handling of Words, and Music and Its Lovers. The book will also shed new light on Lee's relationship with contemporaries such as her brother, the poet Eugene Lee-Hamilton, her friend and mentor Walter Pater, and the art historian and fellow intellectual Bernard Berenson."--Provided by publisher
Art and the transitional object in Vernon Lee's supernatural tales by Patricia Pulham( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patricia Pulham combines psychoanalytic theory with socio-historical criticism to examine a selection of fantastic tales by the female aesthete and intellectual Vernon Lee (Violet Paget, 1856-1935). Lee's own definition of the supernatural in the preface to Hauntings questions the nature of the 'genuine ghost', and argues that this figure is not found in the Society of Psychical Research but in our own psyches, where it functions as a mediator between past and present. Using D.W. Winnicott's 'transitional object' theory, which maintains that adults transfer their childhood engagement with toys to art and cultural artifacts, Pulham argues that the prevalance of the past in Lee's tales signifies not only an historical but a psychic past. Thus the 'ghosts' that haunt Lee's supernatural fiction, as well as her aesthetic, psychological, and historical writings, held complex meanings for her that were fundamental to her intellectual development and allowed her to explore alternative identities that permit the expression of transgressive sexualities."--Jacket
