A companion to Victorian poetry by Richard Cronin ( Book )
28 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."--BOOK JACKET

Romantic Victorians : English literature, 1824-1840 by Richard Cronin ( )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 651 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."--BOOK JACKET

The politics of romantic poetry : in search of the pure commonwealth by Richard Cronin ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 347 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years, this position has been challenged by others who have argued that the poems are not usefully described simply as historical documents, and that the pleasures they offer are distinct from those to be found in the examination of newspapers, acts of parliament, or economic treatises.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 ( )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since September 2001, the United States has been concerned with radical Islamic groups in Southeast Asia, particularly those in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore, that are known to have ties to the Al Qaeda terrorist network. Southeast Asia is a base for past, current, and possibly future Al Qaeda operations. For nearly 15 years, Al Qaeda has penetrated the region by establishing local cells, training Southeast Asians in its camps in Afghanistan, and by financing and cooperating with indigenous radical Islamic groups. Indonesia and the southern Philippines have been particularly vulnerable to penetration by anti-American Islamic terrorist groups. Members of one indigenous network, Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), with extensive ties to Al Qaeda, are known to have assisted two of the September 11, 2001 hijackers and have confessed to plotting and carrying out attacks against Western targets. These include the deadliest terrorist attack since September 2001: the October 12, 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia, that killed approximately 200 people, mostly Westerners. On September 9, 2004, a suicide bombing attack thought to be the work of JI struck the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, killing 10 and wounding around 200. The attack suggests that JI remains capable of carrying out relatively large-scale plots against "hard" Western targets, despite the arrest or death of hundreds of JI members, including most of its known leadership. 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 in their fight against the violent Abu Sayyaf Group, increased intelligence sharing operations, restarted military-military relations with Indonesia, and provided or requested from Congress over $1 billion in aid to Indonesia and the Philippines
