Victorian women poets ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 423 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

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 289 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."--BOOK JACKET

New romanticisms : theory and critical practice ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 275 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 the visual media ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 256 libraries worldwide
"Fiction and film interrelate closely to each other, and the specially commissioned essays in this volume all consider different aspects of this relationship." "Beginning with discussions of Dickens and Victorian literature, the contributors, all leading scholars in this field, demonstrate how visual devices like the magic lantern caught the interest of writers and affected their choice of subject and method. The impact of the cinema on the British modernists is then discussed, and the remaining essays provide detailed case studies on such subjects as Hemingway, Updike, and the depiction of women in contemporary fiction and film."--BOOK JACKET
