polemical perspective on the future of a growing and

That or Which, and Why

A Usage Guide for Thoughtful Writers and Editors

Evan Jenkins, Columbia Journalism Review, USA

’A brilliant and entertaining

romp through difficult

questions of English usage. As

authoritative as it is witty, it

belongs on the desk of every

editor, writer, and student of

the language.’ – Gene Roberts,

former Managing Editor, The

New York Times

That or Which, and Why is an

insightful and witty guide to

writing. Based on Evan Jenkins’

long-running column ‘Language

Corner’ in Columbia Journalism Review, the book is

compiled of brief, alphabetically arranged entries on

approximately 200 major writing stumbling blocks,

from the wonderful world of ‘that’ and ‘which’ to

trickier terrain like the correct usage of common

idiomatic expressions.

Working from his experiences as a newsroom editor and

teacher, Jenkins’ humorous tone puts the reader at ease,

unlike many of the writing and usage guides out there

that are off-putting in their rigidity and dogmatism.

He takes the ‘we’re-all-in-this-together’ approach to

teaching better writing – maintaining a light tone

throughout the book and emphasizing flexibility and

easy-to-use guidelines rather than delivering orders from

Grammar-on-high.

essays and marks.

The Basics of Essay Writing is packed full of good advice

and practical exercises. Students of all ages and in every

Myth

Laurence Coupe, Manchester Metropolitan

University, UK

From Shakespeare’s The Tempest

to Atwood’s The Handmaid’s

Tale, from Coppola’s Apocalypse

Now to the Wachowski

brothers’ The Matrix, writers and

film directors have made and

remade ‘Myth’.

Laurence Coupe not only offers

students a comprehensive

overview of the way that the

concept of ‘Myth’ has

developed, but also shows how

mythic themes, structures and

symbols have persisted into literature and entertainment

of the present day. This introductory volume:

• illustrates the relation between myth, culture and

literature with discussions of poetry, fiction, film and

popular song

• explores uses made of the term ‘Myth’ within the

fields of literary criticism, anthropology, cultural

studies, feminism, Marxism and psychoanalysis

• discusses the association between modernism,

postmodernism, myth and history

• familiarizes the reader with themes such as the dying

god, the quest for the grail, the relation between ‘chaos’

and ‘cosmos’, and the vision of the end of time

• demonstrates the growing importance of the green

dimension of myth.

Fully updated and revised in this new edition, Myth is a

comprehensive introduction to one of the most important

and fascinating aspects of cultural narrative, offering both

a useful tool to students first approaching the topic and a

valuable contribution to the study of myth itself.

The Historical Novel

Jerome de Groot, University of Manchester, UK

The historical novel is not only an immensely popular

genre, but also one that raises fascinating questions

about the nature of key foundational concepts such as

fact and fiction, history, reading and writing. This

wide-ranging guide offers an accessible introduction to

both the genre and the critical debates around it.

In this volume, Jerome de Groot:

• traces the development of the genre, from early

eighteenth-century novels concerned with history through

to postmodern and contemporary historical fiction

• looks at different styles of historical novel, from

sensational or ‘low’ genre through to literary fiction,

and examines related issues of audience, reception,

‘value’ and ‘authenticity’

• examines the many functions of historical fiction,

particularly the challenges it might pose to accepted

histories and the postmodern questioning of ‘grand

narratives’

• relates the form to the wider cultural sphere, with

Elegy

David Kennedy, University of Hull, UK

Grief and mourning are

generally considered to be

private, yet universal instincts.

But in a media age of televised

funerals and visible

bereavement, elegies are

increasingly significant and open

to public scrutiny. Elegy provides

an overview of the history of the

term and the different ways in

which it is used.

Lyric

Scott Brewster, University of Salford, UK

The term ‘lyric’ has evolved,

been revised, redefined and

even contested over the

centuries. This fascinating

volume traces the history of the

term from its classical origins

through the early modern,

Romantic and Victorian periods

and up to the twentieth century.

Offering clarity and structure to

this often intense and emotive

field, Scott Brewster uses as a

focal point the three aspects of:

• the lyric ‘self’

• love and desire in the lyric

• the relationship between lyric, poetry and performance.

Demonstrating the influence of various definitions of

lyric on poetic practice, literature, music and other

popular cultural forms, this book is an essential resource

for students of literature, performance, music and

cultural studies.

Edward Said

Pal Ahluwalia, University of South Australia,

Edward Said is perhaps best

known as the author of the

landmark study Orientalism, a

Looking at the context and the

‘secular criticism’, ‘affiliation’ and ‘contrapuntal

reading’

• the place of text and critic in ‘the world’

• knowledge, power and the construction of the ‘Other’

• links between culture and imperialism

• exile, identity and the plight of Palestine

• a new chapter looking at Said’s later work and style.

This popular guide has been fully updated and revised in

a new edition, suitable for readers approaching Said’s

work for the first time as well as those already familiar

• explanations of the significance of culture and society

on his work.

2ND EDITION

Critical Theory Today

A User-Friendly Guide

Lois Tyson, Grand Valley State University, USA

This second edition of the classic

guide offers a thorough and

accessible introduction to

contemporary critical theory. It

provides in-depth coverage of

the most common approaches

to literary analysis today:

feminism, psychoanalysis,

Marxism, reader-response theory,

new criticism, structuralism and

semiotics, deconstruction, new

historicism, cultural criticism,

lesbian/gay/queer theory,

African-American criticism, and postcolonial criticism.

The chapters provide an extended explanation of each

theory, using examples from everyday life, popular

culture, and literary texts; a list of specific questions

critics who use that theory ask about literary texts; an

interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby

through the lens of each theory; a list of questions for

further practice to guide readers in applying each theory

to different literary works; and a bibliography of primary

and secondary works for further reading. This book can

be used as the only text in a course or as a precursor to

the study of primary theoretical works. It motivates

readers by showing them what critical theory can offer

in terms of their practical understanding of literary texts

and in terms of their personal understanding of

themselves and the world in which they live.

Both engaging and rigorous, it is a ‘how-to’ book for

undergraduate and graduate students new to critical

theory and for college professors who want to broaden

their repertoire of critical approaches to literature.

Continuing Theory

Peter Barry, Aberystwyth University, UK

Literary theory has changed and evolved in recent years,

with some even claiming it is dead. Peter Barry picks up

on these shifts and engages with current debates to

emphasize the continuing significance of theory today.

In a lucid and engaging style, this guide introduces

readers to:

• the dominant debates involving the life, death and

future of theory

• the way that existing theories have evolved, such as

the move from ‘Historicism’ to a ‘New Formalism’

• the relevance of new theories such as ‘Presentism’,

‘Deep’ narratology and the move toward

performativity and performance in gender studies

• the ‘spiritual’ in literature, along with the rise of

theology and the turn to god as a focus for interpretation

• the move from postcolonial to transnational or global

literatures.

Offering a lively and up-to-date introduction to the

ever-changing and contentious field of literary theory,

this guide shows the lasting relevance and even

necessity of continuing theory.

Modernism and Theory

A Critical Debate

Edited by Stephen Ross, University of Victoria,

Canada

Modernism and Theory boldly

asks what – if any – role theory

has to play in the new modernist

studies. Separated into three

sections, each with a clear

introduction, this collection of

new essays from leading critics

outlines ongoing debates on the

nature of modernist culture.

This collection:

• examines aesthetic and

methodological links between

modernist literature and theory

• addresses questions of the importance of theory to

our understanding of ‘modernism’ and modernism

as a literary category

• considers intersections of modernism and theory

within ethics, ecocriticism and the avant-garde.

Concluding with an afterword from Fredric Jameson,

the book makes use of an innovative dialogic format,

offering a direct and engaging experience of the current

debate in modernist studies.

LITERARY AND CULTURAL THEORY 9

The Trauma Question

Roger Luckhurst, Birkbeck, University of London,

UK

In this book, Roger Luckhurst

both introduces and advances

the fields of cultural memory

and trauma studies, tracing the

ways in which ideas of trauma

have become a major element in

contemporary Western

conceptions of the self.

The Trauma Question outlines

the origins of the concept of

trauma across psychiatric, legal

and cultural-political sources

from the 1860s to the coining

of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 1980. It further

explores the nature and extent of ‘trauma culture’ from

1980 to the present, drawing upon a range of cultural

practices from literature, memoirs and confessional

journalism through to photography and film. The study

covers a diverse range of cultural works, including

writers such as Toni Morrison, Stephen King and W.G.

Sebald, artists Tracey Emin, Christian Boltanski and

Tracey Moffatt, and film-makers David Lynch and Atom

Egoyan.

The Trauma Question offers a significant and fascinating

step forward for those seeking a greater understanding

of the controversial and ever-expanding field of trauma

research.

Reading Sexualities

Hermeneutic Theory and the Future of

Queer Studies

Donald Hall, West Virginia University, USA

Reading Sexualities attempts to

invigorate and revitalize the field

of radical sexuality studies.

Drawing widely on the field of

hermeneutic theory and the

works of the German

philosopher Hans-Georg

Gadamer, Donald E. Hall:

• urges readers to embrace a

far-reaching dialogic practice

as a mechanism for furthering

radical social change

• examines the vexed ethical,

critical, and political questions arising from modern

sexual practices and possibilities

• reads the changing landscape of sexual identity,

finding great cause for optimism and enthusiastic

political engagement.

Reading Sexualities shows how our sexual desires and

bases for identification are being challenged and

changed, and argues that by approaching the reading

of sexualities responsibly, we become active participants

in the political, empowering process of reading the self

through the perspective of the other.

Escaping Texts

Hélène Cixous

A ‘wilful extremist’ according to

the London Times, Hélène

Cixous is hailed as one of the

most formidable writers and

thinkers of our time. Acclaimed

by luminaries such as Jacques

Derrida, her writing has

nonetheless been misunderstood

and misread, to a surprising

Stigmata, one of her greatest

works into the Routledge

Classics series, this is about to

change. Questions that have long concerned her – the

self and the other, autobiographies of writing, sexual

difference, literary theory, post-colonial theory, death

and life – are explored here, woven into a stunning

narrative. Displaying a remarkable virtuosity, the work

of Cixous is heady stuff indeed: exciting, powerful,

moving, and dangerous.

The Location of Culture

Homi Bhabha, Harvard University, USA

Rethinking questions of identity,

social agency and national

affiliation, Homi Bhabha provides

a working, if controversial,

theory of cultural hybridity – one

that goes far beyond previous

attempts by others. In The

Location of Culture, he uses

concepts such as mimicry,

interstice, hybridity, and liminality

to argue that cultural production

is always most productive where

it is most ambivalent. Speaking

in a voice that combines intellectual ease with the belief

that theory itself can contribute to practical political

change, Bhabha has become one of the leading

post-colonial theorists of this era.

challenge perceived wisdom, and quickly established

him as a pivotal figure in literary theory. The reissue of

The Genesis of the Chicago

This study examines the genesis of Chicago’s two

identified literary renaissance periods (1890-1920 and

1930-1950) through the writings of Dreiser, Hughes,

Wright, and Farrell. Although Dreiser, Wright, and Farrell

are more commonly thought of as Chicago writers, this

study argues that Langston Hughes is a transitional,

pivotal figure between the two periods. Through close

readings and contextualization, the influence of Chicago

writing on American literature – in such areas as realism

and naturalism, as well as proletarian and ethnic fiction

– becomes apparent.

memory – conscious and unconscious, individual and

collective – often drive African American cultural

production, but such memory often arrives to artists from

elsewhere, from other times, spaces, and experiences.

Modern American Counter Writing

Beats, Outriders, Ethnics

A. Robert Lee, Nihon University, Japan

The dissident voice in US culture might almost be said

to have been born with the territory. Its span runs from

Roger Williams to Thoreau, Anne Bradstreet to Gertrude

Stein, Ambrose Bierce to the New Journalism, The Beats

to the recent Bad Subjects cyber-crowd. This new study

analyzes three recent literary tranches in the tradition: a

re-envisioning of the whole Beat web or circuit; a

consortium of postwar ‘outrider’ voices – Hunter

Thompson to Frank Chin, Joan Didion to Kathy Acker;

and a latest purview of what, all too casually, has been

designated ‘ethnic’ writing. The aim is to set up and

explore these different counter-seams of modern

American writing, those which sit outside, or at least

awkwardly within, agreed literary canons.

The Politics of Identity in Irish Drama

W.B. Yeats, Augusta Gregory and J.M. Synge

George Cusack, University of Oklahoma, USA

This study examines the early dramatic works of Yeats,

Synge, and Gregory in the context of late colonial

Ireland’s unique socio-political landscape. By

contextualizing each author’s work within the artistic

and political discourses of their time, Cusack

demonstrates the complex negotiation of nationalism,

class, and gender identities undertaken by these three

authors in the years leading up to Ireland’s revolution

against England. Furthermore, by focusing on a few

plays written by each author in the context of the

ongoing debates over Irish national identity which were

taking place throughout Irish public life in this period,

Cusack examines in more depth than previous studies

the ways Yeats, Gregory, and Synge adapted

conventional dramatic and linguistic forms to

accommodate the conflicting claims of Irish nationalism.

In so doing, he demonstrates the contribution these

authors made not only to the development of Irish

nationalism but also to modern and postcolonial

literature as we understand them today.

Sensibility

Inger Sigrun Brodey, University of North Carolina,

Chapel Hill, USA

‘Inger Brodey has written a book of remarkable

vitality about the fascination with ruins across

eighteenth-century Europe. The book is both

interdisciplinary and international. Instead of

focusing on a single field like poetry, painting, or

garden design in isolation, she uncovers their

shared penchant for fragmentation which defines

the culture of sensibility. Few authors writing on

the fashion of ruins have penetrated this

well-known phenomenon so deeply and

intelligently.’ – Wu Hung, Harrie A. Vanderstappen

Distinguished Professor, University of Chicago, USA

By examining the motif of ruination in a variety of

late-eighteenth-century domains, this book portrays the

moral aesthetic of the culture of sensibility in Europe,

particularly its negotiation of the demands of tradition

and pragmatism alongside utopian longings for

authenticity, natural goodness, self-governance, mutual

transparency, and instantaneous kinship.

Imperial Eyes

Travel Writing and Transculturation

Mary Louise Pratt, New York University, USA

’Imperial Eyes is a seminal

work in the study of travel

writing, demonstrating an

inventive use of canonical

from the archive of European

colonial ‘contact zone’. Its

critical insights are drawn

eclectically from discourse

postcolonialism,

anthropology, and literary

Book History Through

Postcolonial Eyes

Re-writing the Script

Robert Fraser, The Open University, UK

This surprising study draws

together the disparate fields of

postcolonial theory and book

history in a challenging and

illuminating way.

Robert Fraser proposes that we

now look beyond the traditional

methods of the Anglo-European

bibliographic paradigm, and

learn to appreciate instead the

diversity of shapes that verbal

expression has assumed across

different societies. This change

of attitude will encourage students and researchers to

question developmentally conceived models of

communication, and move instead to a re-formulation

of just what is meant by a book, an author, a text.

Fraser illustrates his combined approach with

comparative case studies of print, script and speech

cultures in South Asia and Africa, before panning out to

examine conflicts and paradoxes arising in parallel

contexts. The re-orientation of approach and the

freshness of view offered by this volume will foster

understanding and creative collaboration between

scholars of different outlooks, while offering a radical

critique to those identified in its concluding section as

purveyors of global literary power.

Postcolonial Ecocriticism

Helen Tiffin, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada

In Postcolonial Ecocriticism Graham Huggan and Helen

Tiffin examine relationships between humans, animals

and the environment in postcolonial texts. Making use of

the work of authors as diverse as J.M. Coetzee, Joseph

Conrad, Daniel Defoe, Jamaica Kincaid and V.S. Naipaul,

the authors argue that human liberation will never be

fully achieved without challenging how human societies

have constructed themselves in hierarchical relation to

other human and nonhuman communities, and without

imagining new ways in which these ecologically

connected groupings can be creatively transformed.

Caliban’s Voice

The Transformation of English in Post-Colonial

Literatures

Bill Ashcroft, University of Hong Kong

In Shakespeare’s Tempest,

Caliban says to Miranda and

Prospero:

‘...you taught me language, and

my profit on’t

Is, I know how to curse.’

With this statement, he gives

voice to an issue that lies at the

centre of post-colonial studies.

Can Caliban own Prospero’s

language? Can he use it to do

more than curse?

Caliban’s Voice examines the ways in which post-colonial

literatures have transformed English to redefine what we

understand to be ‘English Literature’.

Using the figure of Caliban, Bill Ashcroft weaves a

consistent and resonant thread through his discussion

of the post-colonial experience of life in the English

language, and the power of its transformation into new

and creative forms.

Postcolonial Life-Writing

Bart Moore-Gilbert, University of London, UK

At a time when concepts of identity and self-representation

are abundant in both literary and cultural studies,

Postcolonial Life-Writing, brings together the two

increasingly popular and important fields of postcolonial

studies and life-writing.

In this study, Bart Moore-Gilbert:

• identifies the ways in which conceptions of Self in

canonical western autobiography are inflected by

engagements with the figure of the non-western Other

• defines colonial autobiography as a sub-genre which

lies between metropolitan western autobiography and

postcolonial life-writing in terms of its handling of the

dialectic between Self and (non-western) Other

• specifies some of the key characteristics of

postcolonial autobiography which differentiate it from

its western equivalents, notably in terms of its styles of

writing and conceptions of the Self

• promotes greater inter-disciplinary links between the

critical sub-fields of Autobiography Studies and

Postcolonial Studies.

Land and Nationalism in Fictions

James Graham, University of Warwick, UK

In this volume, James Graham investigates the relation

between land and nationalism in South African and

Zimbabwean fiction from the 1960s to the present. This

comparative study, the first of its kind, discusses a wide

range of writing against a backdrop of regional

decolonization, including novels by the prize-winning

authors J.M. Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer, Bessie Head,

Chenjerai Hove, and Yvonne Vera. By employing a range

of critical perspectives – cultural materialist, feminist and

ecocritical – Graham offers new ways of thinking about

the relationship between land, nation and politics in

Paradise Discourse, Imperialism,

Exploiting Eden

Sharae Deckard, University of Warwick, UK

In this ambitious volume, Sharae Deckard analyzes

authors such as Malcolm Lowry, Leonard Woolf, Juan

Rulfo, Wilson Harris, Abdulrazak Gurnah, and Romesh

Gunesekera in order to make a materialist study of the

relation between paradise myths and the ideologies and

economies of colonialism and neo-imperialism in literature

from Mexico, Zanzibar and Sri Lanka. Deckard argues

that literary myths of paradise are the products of a

value-laden discourse related to profit, labor, and the

exploitation of resources, both human and environmental,

which evolves according to the differing material

conditions and discursive agendas of its employers.

Transnationalism in Southern

Stefan Helgesson, Upsala University, Sweden

Considering the growing interest in South African

Literature at the moment, this study looks at both the

Anglophone literature of South Africa and the

lusophone literature of Angola and Mozambique.

Stefan Helgesson suggests that the prevalence of

‘colonial’ languages such as English and Portuguese in

‘anticolonial’ or ‘postcolonial’ African Literature is

primarily an effect of the print network. Helgesson aims

to demystify the authority of English and Portuguese by

stressing the materiality of the print medium and

emphasizing the strong transnational and

transcontinental vectors of southern African literature

after the Second World War.

Marjorie Garber, Harvard University, USA

The title of this collection,

Profiling Shakespeare, is meant

strongly in its double sense.

These essays show the outline of

a Shakespeare rather different

from the man sought by

biographers from his time to our

own. They also show the effects,

the ephemera, the clues and

cues, welcome and unwelcome,

out of which Shakespeare’s

admirers and dedicated scholars

have pieced together a vision of

the playwright, whether as sage, psychologist, lover,

theatrical entrepreneur, or moral authority. This collection

brings together classic pieces, hard-to-find chapters, and

two new essays. Here, Marjorie Garber has produced a

book at once serious and highly readable, ranging

broadly across time periods (early modern to postmodern)

and touching upon both high and popular culture.

SHAKESPEARE

Shakespeare and the Problem

of Adaptation

Margaret Jane Kidnie, University of Western

Ontario, Canada

Shakespeare and the Problem

of Adaptation presents an

engaging exploration of the

distinction between the

Shakespearean work and its

apparent other, the adaptation.

Margaret Jane Kidnie brings

performance criticism into

contact with textual studies to

show that the mutually defining

categories of work and

adaptation are unfixed; the

products of ongoing debates,

arguments, and desires.

Kidnie pursues her argument in relation to instances as

diverse as theatrical productions by the Royal Shakespeare

Company to Djanet Sears’ prequel to Othello, and from

Robert Lepage’s one-man Hamlet to recent print editions

of the complete works. These new readings of key

productions are accessible as independent analyses,

and build up a persuasive picture of the cultural and

intellectual processes that currently determine how the

authentically Shakespearean is distinguished from the

fraudulent and adaptive.

Gothic Shakespeares

Edited by John Drakakis and Dale Townshend,

University of Stirling, UK

Series: Accents on Shakespeare

Shakespeare was both

influenced by and influential in

the rise of Gothic forms in

literature and culture from the

late eighteenth century onwards.

Shakespeare’s plays are full of

ghosts, suspense, fear-inducing

moments and cultural anxieties

which many writers in the Gothic

mode have since emulated,

adapted and appropriated.

The contributors to this volume

consider:

• Shakespeare’s relationship with popular Gothic fiction

of the eighteenth century

• how, without Shakespeare as a point of reference, the

Gothic mode in fiction and drama may not have

developed and evolved in quite the way it did

• the ways in which the Gothic engages in a complex

dialogue with Shakespeare, often through the use of

quotation, citation and analogy

• the extent to which the relationship between

Shakespeare and the Gothic requires a radical

reappraisal in the light of contemporary literary theory,

as well as the popular extensions of the Gothic into

many modern modes of representation.

In Gothic Shakespeares, Shakespeare is considered

alongside major Gothic texts and writers – from Horace

Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis and Mary Shelley,

up to and including contemporary Gothic fiction and

horror film. This volume offers a highly original and truly

provocative account of Gothic reformulations of

Shakespeare, and Shakespeare’s significance to the Gothic.

Alternative Shakespeares 3

Edited by Diana E. Henderson, MIT, Massachusetts,

USA

Series: New Accents

This volume takes up the

challenge embodied in its

predecessors, Alternative

Shakespeares and Alternative

Shakespeares 2, to identify and

explore the new, the changing

and the radically ‘other’

possibilities for Shakespeare

Studies at our particular

historical moment.

Alternative Shakespeares 3

introduces the strongest and

most innovative of the new

directions emerging in Shakespearean scholarship –

ranging across performance studies, multimedia and

textual criticism, concerns of economics, science,

religion and ethics – as well as the ‘next step’ work in

areas such as postcolonial and queer studies that

continue to push the boundaries of the field. The

contributors approach each topic with clarity and

accessibility in mind, enabling student readers to

engage with serious ‘alternatives’ to established ways of

interpreting Shakespeare’s plays and their roles in

contemporary culture.

The expertise, commitment and daring of this volume’s

contributors shine through each essay, maintaining the

progressive edge and real-world urgency that are the

hallmark of Alternative Shakespeares. This volume is

essential reading for students and scholars of

Shakespeare who seek an understanding of current

and future directions in this ever-changing field.

Dramatists and their Manuscripts in

Authorship, Authority and the Playhouse

Grace Ioppolo, University of Reading, UK

‘To say that Ioppolo’s book will, or should,

completely alter the way the texts by the

playwrights of the period are edited and therefore

performed is to put it entirely too mildly. And, of

course, she most definitely brings the author back

from the dead.’ – Notes and Queries

This book presents new evidence about the ways in

which English Renaissance dramatists such as William

Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Thomas Heywood, John

Fletcher and Thomas Middleton composed their plays

and the degree to which they participated in the

dissemination of their texts to theatrical audiences.

Grace Ioppolo argues that the path of the transmission

of the text was not linear, from author to censor to

playhouse to audience – as has been universally argued

by scholars – but circular.

This book investigates how French Romanticism was

race. It studies the ways in which metropolitan

Romantic novels – that is, novels by French authors such

as Victor Hugo, George Sand, Bernardin de Saint-Pierre,

François René de Chateaubriand, Claire de Duras, and

Prosper Mérimée – comprehend and construct colonized

peoples, fashion French identity in the context of

colonialism, and record the encounter between

Europeans and non-Europeans. While the primary texts

that come under investigation in the book are novels,

close attention is paid to Romantic fiction’s

interdependence with naturalist treatises, travel writing,

abolitionist texts, and ethnographies.

range from Goethe’s writing on metamorphosis to

that each author contributes to a scientifically-informed

Gothic Romanced

Consumption, Gender and Technology in

Contemporary Fictions

Fred Botting, Lancaster University, UK

The dark, destructive and

monstrous elements of gothic

fiction have traditionally been seen

in opposition to the rose-tinted

idealism of Romanticism. In this

ground-breaking study, Fred

Botting re-evaluates the

relationship between the two

genres in order to plot the shifting

alignments of popular and literary

fictions with cultural theories,

consumption and representations

of science.

Gothic Romanced traces the history of gothic and

romantic writings from the eighteenth and nineteenth

centuries to the present day. It examines the ways in

which these genres were aligned with the historical

process of modernity – with the Gothic representing the

negative aspects of vice and barbarism that

accompanied the changing parameters of civilization,

while Romance clung on to traditional values, manners

and feelings. The book demonstrates how these genres

have evolved together alongside cultural shifts and

postmodern theories, blurring the binary between the

sacred and the profane.

Botting considers Romance and the Gothic from Mary

Shelley, Anne Rice and Alasdair Gray through to

Alien and Star Trek. He manages a fluid and extensive

exploration of generic boundaries, including gothic

fiction, romantic poetry, literary pastiches, popular

horror fiction, cyberpunk and science fiction.

What Animals Mean in the

Fiction of Modernity argues that

nonhuman animals, and stories

about them, have always been

closely bound up with the

conceptual and material work

of modernity.

In the first half of the book,

Philip Armstrong examines the

function of animals and animal

representations in four classic

narratives: Robinson Crusoe,

Gulliver’s Travels, Frankenstein

and Moby-Dick. He then goes on to explore how these

stories have been re-worked, in ways that reflect

shifting social and environmental forces, by later

novelists, including H.G. Wells, Upton Sinclair, D.H.

Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka, Brigid

Brophy, Bernard Malamud, Timothy Findley, Will Self,

Margaret Atwood, Yann Martel and J.M. Coetzee.

What Animals Mean in the Fiction of Modernity also

introduces readers to new developments in the study of

human-animal relations. It does so by attending both to

the significance of animals to humans, and to animals’

own purposes or designs; to what animals mean to us,

and to what they mean to do, and how they mean to live.

Travel and Drugs in

Twentieth-Century Literature

Lindsey Banco, Nipissing University, Canada

The study of travel literature and the study of literary

representations of and philosophical inquiries into drugs

and intoxication have grown increasingly prominent as

independent fields of inquiry, but neither field has

produced any sustained examination of the relationships

between the two. In this volume, Lindsey Banco

examines interlocking representations of travel and

drugs in†the fiction of Burroughs, Huxley and others in

order to assesses how and why metaphors of mobility

help conceptualize the experience of intoxication as well

as how and why drugs enable us to think about the

pleasures and the pains of travel. He discovers that the

juxtaposition of traveling and tripping – which he

argues is often a process of ‘spatializing intoxication’ –

raises important questions about identity, alterity,

utopia, and capitalism.

Asian American Fiction, History,

and Life Writing

International Encounters

Helena Grice, University of Wales, UK

The last ten years have witnessed an enormous growth

in American interest in Asia and Asian/American history.

In particular, a set of key Asian historical moments have

recently become the subject of intense American

cultural scrutiny, namely China’s Cultural Revolution and

its aftermath; the Korean American war and its legacy;

the era of Japanese geisha culture and its subsequent

decline; and China’s one-child policy and the rise of

transracial, international adoption in its wake. Grice

examines and accounts for this cultural and literary

preoccupation with all things Asian, exploring the

corresponding historical-political situations that have

both circumscribed and enabled greater cultural and

political contact between Asia and America.

American Fiction of the 1990s

Reflections of History and Culture

Edited by Jay Prosser, University of Leeds, UK

American Fiction of the 1990s

brings together essays from

international experts to examine

one of the most vital and

energized decades in American

literature. This volume reads the

rich body of 1990s American

fiction in the context of key

cultural concerns of the period.

The issues that the contributors

identify as especially productive

include:

• immigration and America’s

geographical borders,

particularly those with Latin America

• racial tensions, race relations and racial exchanges

• historical memory and the recording of history

• sex, scandal and the politicization of sexuality

• postmodern technologies, terrorism and paranoia.

This title examines texts by established authors such as

Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth and Thomas

Pynchon, but also by emergent writers, such as

Sherman Alexie, Chang-Rae Lee, E. Annie Proulx, David

Foster Wallace, and Jonathan Franzen. American Fiction

of the 1990s offers new insight into both the literature

and the culture of the period, as well as the interaction

between the two in a way that furthers the New

a spatial or political phenomenon, Glenney Boggs

focuses our attention on evidence of linguistic

variety in the pages of American works

themselves: a significant angle so far overlooked

culture with monolingualism. She persuasively

argues that American texts have always been

Relentless Progress

The Reconfiguration of Children’s Literature,

Fairy Tales, and Storytelling

Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota, USA

Can fairy tales subvert

consumerism? Can fantasy and

children’s literature counter the

homogenizing influence of

globalization? Can storytellers

retain their authenticity in the

age of consumerism? These are

some of the critical questions

raised by Jack Zipes, the

celebrated scholar of fairy tales

and children’s literature. In this

book, Zipes argues that, despite

a dangerous reconfiguration of

children as consumers in the civilizing process, children’s

literature, fairy tales, and storytelling possess a uniquely

powerful (even fantastic) capacity to resist the ‘relentless

progress’ of negative trends in culture. He also argues

that these tales and stories may lose their power if they

are too diluted by commercialism and merchandising.

Stories have been used for centuries as a way to teach

children (and adults) how to see the world, as well as

their place within it. In Relentless Progress, Zipes looks

at the surprising ways that stories have influenced

people within contemporary culture and vice versa.

Among the many topics explored here are the dumbing

down of books for children, the marketing of

childhood, the changing shape of feminist fairy tales,

and why American and British children aren’t exposed

to more non-western fairy tales. From picture books to

graphic novels, from children’s films to video games,

from Grimm’s fairy tales to the multimedia Harry Potter

phenomenon, Zipes demonstrates that while children’s

stories have changed greatly in recent years, much

about these stories have remained the same – despite

their contemporary, high-tech repackaging.

Relentless Progress offers remarkable insight into why

classic folklore and fairy tales should remain an important

part of the lives of children in today’s digital culture.

2-VOLUME SET

The Collected Sicilian Folk and

Fairy Tales of Giuseppe Pitré

Giuseppe Pitré

Edited by Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota, USA

and Joseph Russo

Giuseppe Pitré, a nineteenth-century Sicilian physician,

gathered an enormous wealth of folk and fairy tales as

he traveled and treated the poor throughout Palermo.

He also received tales from friends and scholars

throughout the island of Sicily. A dedicated folklorist,

whose significance ranks alongside the Brothers Grimm,

he published a 25-volume collection of Sicilian folk

tales, legends, songs, and customs between 1871 and

1914. Though first published in their original Sicilian

dialect, these tales have never before been translated,

collected, and published in English until now.

This historic two-volume set collects 300 and 100

variants of his most entertaining and most important

folk and fairy tales, along with lively, vivid illustrations

by Carmelo Lettere. In stark contrast to the more literary

ambitions of the Grimms‘ tales, Pitré’s possess a

charming, earthy quality that reflect the customs,

beliefs, and superstitions of the common people more

clearly than any other European folklore collection of

the nineteenth century.

Edited, translated, and with a critical introduction by

world-renowned folk and fairy tale experts Jack Zipes

and Joseph Russo, this collection will firmly establish

Pitré’s importance as a folklorist.

Classical Fairy Tales and Their Tradition

Charles Perrault or the Brothers

Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen

or The Thousand and One

Nights, The Happy Prince or

Pinocchio, L. Frank Baum or

Hermann Hesse, Zipes shows

how the authors of our beloved

fairy tales used the genre to

articulate personal desires, political views, and aesthetic

preferences within particular social contexts. Above all,

he demonstrates the role that the fairy tale has assumed

in the civilizing process – the way it imparts values,

norms, and aesthetic taste to children and adults.

Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion

Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota, USA

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural

and social influences on children’s lives. But until Fairy

Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had

been paid to the ways in which the writers and

collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in

order to shape children’s lives – their behavior, values,

and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly

shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful

discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize

attitudes and behavior within culture.

For this second edition, the author has revised the work

throughout and added a new introduction bringing this

classic title up to date.

“Juvenile” Literature and British

Society, 1850-1950

The Age of Adolescence

Charles Ferrall and Anna Jackson, both at Victoria

University of Wellington, New Zealand

This study argues that the Victorians and Edwardians

created a cult of adolescence as significant as the

Romantic cult of childhood, positing adolescence as a

liminal period between childhood and adulthood, a time

that adults could remember nostalgically but which for

children leaving home represented a potentially

terrifying immersion into a strictly hierarchical and

authoritarian world.

Neo-Imperialism in Children’s

Literature About Africa

A Study of Contemporary Fiction

Yulisa Amadu Maddy and Donnarae MacCann

In the spirit of their last collaboration, Apartheid and

Racism in South African Children’s Literature,

1985-1995, Yulisa Amadu Maddy and Donnarae

MacCann once again come together to expose the

neo-imperialist overtones of contemporary children’s

fiction about Africa. Examining the portrayal of African

social customs, religious philosophies, and political

structures in fiction for young people, Maddy and

MacCann reveal the Western biases that often infuse

stories by well-known Western authors.

Representations of Technology in

Science Fiction for Young People

Control Shift

Noga Applebaum, Roehampton University, UK

In this study about the representations of modern

technology in contemporary science fiction for children

and young adults, Noga Applebaum exposes the

anti-technological bias existing within a genre usually

associated with celebrating technology, and suggests

that at the heart of this bias is adults’ fear that children,

perceived as being more comfortable and skilled with

certain technologies, will use them to upset the existing

adult-child power hierarchy. Although focusing on the

popular genre of science fiction as a useful case study,

Applebaum demonstrates that negative attitudes to

technology exist within children’s literature in general.

lesser-known texts.

Dickens, Journalism, and Nationhood

Mapping the World in Household Words

Sabine Clemm, University of Southampton, UK

Dickens, Journalism, and Nationhood examines Charles

Dickens’ weekly family magazine Household Words in

order to develop a detailed picture of how the journal

negotiated, asserted and simultaneously deconstructed

Englishness as a unified (and sometimes unifying) mode

of expression. It offers close readings of a wide range of

England as well as the relationship between Britain and

the European continent, Ireland, and the British colonies.

Frontier/Grotesque in the Novels

of William Faulker

Peter Alan Froehlich, Southeast Missouri State

University, USA

This book locates Faulkner’s historical vision in his use of

‘frontier/grotesque’, a cultural rhetoric associated with

colonization, which appears in the tension between the

regional mythology of plantation and the national

mythology of frontier. The book identifies Absalom,

Absalom!, The Hamlet, and Go Down, Moses as a

‘mythic trilogy’, novels less concerned with portraying

the harsh realities of the Depression than the author’s

vision of a South caught in the tension between the

regional mythology of plantation and the national

mythology of frontier.

Gertrude Stein and the Making of

an American Celebrity

Karen Leick, Ohio State University, USA

By examining not the ways that Stein portrayed the

popular in her work, but the ways the popular

portrayed her, this study shows that there was an

intimate relationship between literary modernism and

mainstream culture and that modernist writers and texts

were much more well-known than has been previously

acknowledged. Specifically, Karen Leick reveals through

the case study of Stein that the relationship between

mass culture and modernism in America was less

antagonistic, more productive and integrated than

previous studies have suggested.

Looking at Chesteron’s relationship with and influence

Waugh, and Marshall McLuhan, Joseph R. McCleary

contends that Chesterton’s recurring use of the themes of

Jennifer Lee Jordan Heinert, University of

This study analyzes the relationship between race and

genre in four of Toni Morrison’s novels: The Bluest Eye,

Tar Baby, Jazz, and Beloved. Heinert argues how

Morrison’s novels revise conventional generic forms such

as bildungsroman, folktales, slave narratives, and the

formal realism of the novel itself. This study goes

beyond formalist analyses to show how these revisions

expose the relationship between race, conventional

generic forms, and the dominant culture.

The Politics of Humiliation in the

Novels of J.M. Coetzee

Hania Nashef

In this volume, Hania Nashef looks at J.M. Coetzee’s

concern with universal suffering and the inevitable

humiliation of the human being as manifest in his

novels. Though several theorists have referred to the

theme of human degradation in Coetzee’s work, no

detailed study has been made of this area of concern

especially with respect to how pervasive it is across

Coetzee’s literary output to date. This study examines

what J.M. Coetzee’s novels portray as the circumstances

that contribute to the humiliation of the individual –

namely the abuse of language, master and slave

interplay, aging and senseless waiting – and how these

conditions, singularly or in unison can lead to the

alienation and marginalization of the individual.

Chris Louttit reshapes our understanding of Dickens by

of Victorian earnestness of the sort attributed also to

Thomas Carlyle, John Ruskin, and even more

simplistically, Samuel Smiles.

Forbidden Sex, Forbidden Texts

New India’s Gay Poets

Hoshang Merchant

The book argues that there is no monolithic

homosexuality; there are only homosexualities, that is,

there are as many reasons for being gay as there are

gays. Some people are born gay, some have gayness

thrust upon them, and some do, indeed, achieve to great

gayness. Representation of homosexuality/homoeroticism,

as it is understood today, is thus a western import.

The act and public/social discourses on same-sex love are

still illegal; it is, according to many, against the Indian

‘tradition’; and a sense of ‘history’ is seriously problematic

when we dig out for a past tradition of homoerotic love

and desire.

Origins

A Short Etymological Dictionary of Modern English

Eric Partridge

This dictionary gives the origins

of some 20,000 items from the

modern English vocabulary,

discussing them in groups that

make clear the connections

between words derived by a

variety of routes from originally

common stock. As well as giving

the answers to questions about

the derivation of individual

words, it is a fascinating book to

browse through, since every

page points out links with other

entries. It is easy to pursue such trails as the longer

articles are written as continuous prose clearly divided

up by means of numbered paragraphs and subheadings,

and there is a careful system of cross-references.

In addition to the main A-Z listing, there are extensive

lists of prefixes, suffixes, and elements used in the

creation of new vocabulary.
