Victorian women poets( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 432 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

Postcolonial theory and criticism by English Association( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary postcolonial studies represent a controversial area of debate. This collection seeks its historical, social and political realities, rather than ignoring a consideration of material conditions. The contributors look at the oppositional power held and exercised by anti-colonial movements, a neglected topic; address the literary strategies devised by metropolitan writers to contain the insecurities of empire, given that unrest and opposition were integral to British imperialism; contest the charges of nativism and essentialism made by postcolonial critics against liberation writings; and investigate the voices of both inhabitants of post-independence nation states, an those scattered by colonialism itself."--BOOK JACKET
Writing gender and genre in medieval literature : approaches to old and Middle English texts( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this annual English Association volume provide useful examples of how the conventions behind and the expectations evoked by literary modes and genres help to shape what purports to be an entirely essential and/or socially constructed aspect of identity of the 'he', 'she', or 'I' of the literary text." "Ranging across materials from Old English Biblical poetry and hagiography to the late Middle English romances and fabliaux, the essays are united by a commitment to a variety of traditional scholarly methodologies. But each examines afresh an important aspect of what it means to be man or woman, husband, son, mother, daughter, wife, devotee or lover in the context of particular kinds of medieval literary texts."--Jacket
Fictional space : essays on contemporary science fiction( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fictional Space consists of eight essays by British and American critics on science fiction. The contributors have written especially on the most recent science fiction, taking account of the field's resurgence since what seemed a 'played-out' period in the 1970s. Fictional Space analyses the development of the postmodern science fiction in 'cyberpunk' and other forms; the treatment of political 'taboo areas' such as the Vietnam War and the decline of American hegemony; altered attitudes to 'text', seen in different essays and different images as decayed and abandoned, or as transmuted by technology into newly eternal formats. Among the questions asked are, why is science fiction so different to read, and why do so many sophisticated readers refuse to read it? Can science fiction exist without relevance or 'referentiality' to the society that produces it? Can it be related in normal literary ways to the real-life experiences or frustrations of its authors? -- from back cover

New romanticisms : theory and critical practice by Donald C Goellnicht( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the fate of Romantic studies in the wake of deconstruction and post-structuralism? In an attempt to answer this question, Clark and Goellnicht have brought together nine essays that represent a cross-section of the diverse critical scene in Romantic studies today. These essays reflect the thinking of a younger generation of Canadian scholars - those who came of age while the lines of the current debate about the future of Romantic studies were being drawn. They call for a renewed sense of the plurality of Romanticisms, deliberately avoiding the suggestion that the focus of Romantic studies should simply shift from the rhetoric of Romantic texts to the culture of Romanticism. As a whole, the collection highlights the many ways in which contemporary theory has complicated our conception of Romanticism. Yet Romantic texts are not merely read through theory; they are shown to be sites of various forms of theorization themselves. Above all, the essays reveal the conflicting pressures at work within and among Romantic writers, whose texts are characterized by multiple strands of significance that entwine but do not build towards a synthesis. The scholars represented here deliberately avoid constructing a new master-narrative for Romantic studies. Designed to provide an indication of the different directions that Romantic studies are currently headed in, beyond the totalizing opposition which would see deconstruction secede to historicism, New Romanticisms emphasizes the plurality of critical positions available to the contemporary scholar

Literature and science by English Association( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1959 C.P. Snow memorably described the 'gulf of mutual incomprehension' which existed between 'literary intellectuals' and scientists, referring to them as 'two cultures'. This volume looks at the extent to which this has changed. Ranging from the middle ages to twentieth-century science fiction and literary theory, and using different texts, genres, and methodologies, the essays collected here demonstrate the complexity of literature, science, and the interfaces between them."--Jacket
Writing home : poetry and place in Northern Ireland, 1968-2008 by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ideas of home, place and identity have been continually questioned, re-imagined and re-constructed in Northern Irish poetry. Concentrating on the period since the outbreak of the Troubles in the late 1960s, this study provides a detailed consideration of the work of several generations of poets, from Hewitt and MacNeice, to Fiacc and Montague, to Simmons, Heaney, Mahon and Longley, to Muldoon, Carson, Paulin and McGuckian, to McDonald, Morrissey, Gillis and Flynn. It traces the extent to which their writing represents a move away from concepts of rootedness and towards a deterritorialized poetics of displacement, mobility, openness and pluralism in an era of accelerating migration and globalisation."--book jacket
