            Untimely Epic offers a new interpretation of time in Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica: rather than focusing predominantly on the structure of the narrative, it employs a range of theoretical concepts drawn from ancient and modern criticism to address how the poem shapes readers' e...xperience of time and temporality.

            Art and Artifact in Austen
              

            Art and Artifact in Austen (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Jane Austen distinguished herself with genius in literature, but she was immersed in all of the arts. Austen loved dancing, played the piano proficiently, meticulously transcribed piano scores, attended concerts and art exhibits, read broadly, wrote poems, sat for portraits by he...r sister Cassandra, and performed in theatricals. For her, art functioned as a social bond, solidifying her engagement with community and offering order. And yet Austen's hold on readers' imaginations owes a debt to the omnipresent threat of disorder that often stems-ironically-from her characters' socially disruptive artistic sensibilities and skill. Drawing from a wealth of recent historicist and materialist Austen scholarship, this timely work explores Austen's ironic use of art and artifact to probe selfhood, alienation, isolation, and community in ways that defy simple labels and acknowledge the complexity of Austen's thought.

            This book looks beyond the reductive tendency to read a rich and diverse literary profile in light of Hedayat's suicide, arguing instead that his literary imagination was not solely the result of genius but rather enriched by a vast network of the world's literary traditions.

            The beach confronts us with crucial issues of our times: migration, postcolonial power structures and mass tourism, climate change and pollution as well as gender and burkini swimwear controversies are examples of the numerous conflicts, discourses and practices that manifest wit...hin this liminal zone and that find their focal point there. The interdisciplinary volume understands 'the beach' as a (border) phenomenon in its own right and contributes to the new field of beach studies. It takes its point of departure from this changing image of 'the beach' to explore how its topographies, experiences and cultural significations are constructed through art, society and culture and how 'the beach' shapes poetics and aesthetic strategies in literature, film, photography, painting, music and performance. It aims to gain systematic insights from an analysis of historically and geographically specific varieties of the beach and to create a critical awareness for the contextual implications of contemporary discussions revolving around 'the beach'.

            This is the first contemporary edition of the scholarly writings of Jane Wilde, known as Speranza (1826-1898) and William Wilde (1815-1874), an edition of their selected poems, translations, travel writings, medical observations, literary criticism, folklore and political comment...ary. This project engages with contemporary scholarly interest in Wilde studies and on the influence of Ireland within the work of Oscar Wilde. As writers, intellectuals and Irish nationalists, Speranza and William Wilde themselves were key in the awakening of the Celtic Imagination with their innovative and ground-breaking work as scholars, folklorists and cultural historians of Gaelic traditions The reputations of both Speranza and William Wilde suffered with their son's disgrace and he was himself keenly aware of their impressive nature of their achievements, writing in his prison testament De Profunds, She and my father had bequeathed me a name they had made noble and honoured, not merely in literature, art, archaeology, and science, but in the public history of my own country, in its evolution as a nation. This anthology reclaims the writings of Speranza and William Wilde as part of the public history of Ireland in the nineteenth century.
