A companion to Victorian poetry by Richard Cronin( Book )

"This Companion brings together specially commissioned essays by distinguished international scholars that reflect both the diversity of Victorian poetry and the variety of critical approaches that illuminate it." "The volume opens with an introductory essay on Victorian poetics by Carol Christ that offers a commanding overview of the whole period. The remaining contributions are organized into three parts: the first surveys the variety of schools and styles in Victorian poetry; in the second, the focus shifts from the form and content of the poetry to the means of its production and distribution; the final part positions Victorian verse in its contexts and explores its interactions with dominant cultural discourses."--Jacket

Romantic Victorians : English literature, 1824-1840 by Richard Cronin( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romantic Victorians offers shrewd assessments of their formal and tactical designs. This is a literary period in which literature fully entered the marketplace, and in which an ideology was constituted - civic, domestic, Christian and imperial - that was to inform British society for more than a century. These are among the issues that Cronin addresses and, in so doing, successfully restructures nineteenth-century literary studies."--Jacket
The politics of romantic poetry : in search of the pure commonwealth by Richard Cronin( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major achievement of critics of Romanticism over the past twenty years has been to transfer to the word history the glamour that once routinely attached itself to the word imagination. But all through this period, and more forcibly in recent years, this position has been challenged by others who have argued that the poems are not usefully described simply as historical documents, and that the pleasures they offer are distinct from those to be found in the examination of newspapers, acts of parliament, or economic treatises. One group of critics focuses on the historical circumstances out of which the poems were produced; the other on the language out of which the poems are made. Richard Cronin argues that the opposition between the two approaches is both false and constrictive, and he does so by taking as his premises that a poet's most effective political action is the forging of a new language, and that the political import of a poem is a function of its style. This book describes poets who speak to a fragmented society with the design of constituting their readers as citizens of, in an echo of Wordsworth's phrase, the pure commonwealth, and it takes seriously Wordsworth's further contention that such a commonwealth can be secured only by the purity of its language

Terrorism in southeast Asia by Mark E Manyin( )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the defeat of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, U.S. attention has turned to radical Islamist groups in Southeast Asia, particularly those in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore that are known or alleged to have ties to the Al Qaeda terrorist network. For more than a decade, Al Qaeda has penetrated the region by establishing local cells, training Southeast Asians in its camps in Afghanistan, and financing and cooperating with indigenous radical Islamist groups. Indonesia and the southern Philippines have been particularly vulnerable to penetration by anti-American Islamic terrorist groups. One such network, Jemaah Islamiyah, is known to have assisted two of Al Qaeda's Sep 11, 2001 hijackers and is suspected of plotting attacks against Western targets, including the Oct 12, 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia. Some analysts fear that the Bali attack may represent a shift in tactics, from targeting Western military and government installations to focusing on "softer" targets such as tourist resorts, Western business, and schools serving Westerners. To combat the threat, the Bush Administration has pressed countries in the region to arrest suspected terrorist individuals and organizations, deployed over 1,000 troops to the southern Philippines to advise the Philippine military, restarted military-military relations with Indonesia (including restoring International Military Education and Training [IMET]), and has signed a multilateral counterterrorism agreement with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). These governments have to balance these security concerns with domestic political considerations. Although proponents of violent, radical Islam remain a small minority in Southeast Asia, many governments view increased American pressure and military presence in their region with ambivalence because of the political sensitivity of the issue with both mainstream Islamic and secular nationalist groups
