Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs: Selected Prose, 2000-2016

August Kleinzahler

Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs: Selected Prose, 2000-2016 by August Kleinzahler

Sixteen years' worth of incisive essays by the great poet and memoirist

"Witty, gritty poet and memoirist Kleinzahler" (Publishers Weekly) has gathered the best of sixteen years' worth of essays, remembrances, and reviews in this scabrous and essential collection, setting down his thoughts about great poets and bad poets, about kvetching fiction writers and homicidal musicians, about eccentric critics and discerning nobodies, always with insight and humor, and never suffering fools gladly.

Here, in Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs, August Kleinzahler eulogizes famous friends, warts and...

Disney Culture

John Wills

War Pictures: Cinema, Violence, and Style in Britain, 1939-1945

Kent Puckett

War Pictures: Cinema, Violence, and Style in Britain, 1939-1945 by Kent PuckettIn this original and engaging work, author Kent Puckett looks at how British filmmakers imagined, saw, and sought to represent its war during wartime through film. The Second World War posed unique representational challenges to Britain's filmmakers. Because of its logistical enormity, the unprecedented scope of its destruction, its conceptual status as total, and the way it affected everyday life through aerial bombing, blackouts, rationing, and the demands of total mobilization, World War II created new, critical opportunities for cinematic representation. Beginning with a close and critical...

Phases

Mischa Willett

Phases by Mischa WillettThe poems in Phases are as interested in the creeping penumbral edge of language as they are in the shadowy fact of faith. Playful experiments with form swing to the conceptual ring's apegee, while a colloquy across history and place center the proverbial orbit.

Patricia Mainardi

Another World: Nineteenth-Century Illustrated Print Culture by Patricia MainardiThe remarkable story of the stylistic, cultural, and technical innovations that drove the surge of comics, caricature, and other print media in 19th-century Europe

My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues

Pamela Paul

My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues by Pamela Paul

Imagine keeping a record of every book you've ever read. What would this reading trajectory say about you? With passion, humor, and insight, the editor of The New York Times Book Review shares the stories that have shaped her life.

Pamela Paul has kept a single book by her side for twenty-eight years - carried throughout high school and college, hauled from Paris to London to Thailand, from job to job, safely packed away and then carefully removed from apartment to house to its current perch on a shelf over her desk - reliable if frayed, anonymous-looking yet deeply personal. This book has a...

Satirizing Modernism: Aesthetic Autonomy, Romanticism, and the Avant-Garde

Emmett Stinson

Satirizing Modernism: Aesthetic Autonomy, Romanticism, and the Avant-Garde by Emmett StinsonSatirizing Modernism examines 20th-century novels that satirize avant-garde artists and authors while also using experimental techniques associated with literary modernism. These novels-such as Wyndham Lewis's The Apes of God, William Gaddis's The Recognitions, and Gilbert Sorrentino's Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things-were under-recognized and received poor reviews at the time of publication, but have increasingly been acknowledged as both groundbreaking and deeply influential. Satirizing Modernism analyzes these novels in order to present an alternative account of literary modernism,...

Katherine Mansfield and the Bloomsbury Group

Todd Martin

Katherine Mansfield and the Bloomsbury Group by Todd MartinThe New Zealand-born writer Katherine Mansfield associated intimately with many members of the Bloomsbury group, but her literary aesthetics placed her at a distance from the artistic works of the group. With chapters written by leading international scholars, Katherine Mansfield and the Bloomsbury Group explores this conflicted relationship. Bringing together biographical and critical studies, the book examines Mansfield's relationships - personal and literary - with such major Modernist figures as Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley and Walter de la Mare as well as the ways in which...

Wendell Berry and Higher Education: Cultivating Virtues of Place

Jack R. Baker & Jeffrey Bilbro

Wendell Berry and Higher Education: Cultivating Virtues of Place by Jack R. Baker & Jeffrey Bilbro

Prominent author and cultural critic Wendell Berry is well known for his contributions to agrarianism and environmentalism, but his commentary on education has received comparatively little attention. Berry has been eloquently unmasking America's cultural obsession with restless mobility for decades, arguing that it causes damage to both the land and the character of our communities. Education, he maintains, plays a central role in this obsession, inculcating in students' minds the American dream of moving up and moving on.

Drawing on Berry's essays, fiction, and poetry, Jack R. Baker and Jeffrey...

Modernism, War, and Violence

Marina MacKay

Covering a wide range of authors from Joseph Conrad and Thomas Hardy at the beginning of the period to Elizabeth Bowen and Samuel Beckett at the end, this book situates modernism's extraordinary literary achievements in their contexts of historical violence, while surveying the ways in which the relationships between modernism and conflict have been understood by readers and critics over the past fifty years.
