Description : This collection includes twelve provocative essays from a diverse group of international scholars, who utilize a range of interdisciplinary approaches to analyze “real” and “representational” animals that stand out as culturally significant to Victorian literature and culture. Essays focus on a wide range of canonical and non-canonical Victorian writers, including Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope, Anna Sewell, Emily Bronte, James Thomson, Christina Rossetti, and Richard Marsh, and they focus on a diverse array of forms: fiction, poetry, journalism, and letters. These essays consider a wide range of cultural attitudes and literary treatments of animals in the Victorian Age, including the development of the animal protection movement, the importation of animals from the expanding Empire, the acclimatization of British animals in other countries, and the problems associated with increasing pet ownership. The collection also includes an Introduction co-written by the editors and Suggestions for Further Study, and will prove of interest to scholars and students across the multiple disciplines which comprise Animal Studies.

Description : Beards and Masculinity in American Literature is a pioneering study of the symbolic power of the beard in the history of American writing. This book covers the entire breadth of American writing – from 18th century American newspapers and periodicals through the 19th and 20th centuries to recent contemporary engagements with the beard and masculinity. With chapters focused on the barber and the barbershop in American writing, the "need for a shave" in Ernest Hemingway’s fiction, Whitman’s beard as a sanctuary for poets reaching out to the bearded bard, and the contemporary re-engagement with the beard as a symbol of Otherness in post-9/11 fiction, Beards and Masculinity in American Literature underlines the symbolic power of facial hair in key works of American writing.

Description : This volume is a collection of words in honor of our colleague, teacher and friend Yordan Kosturkov. It is but a feeble attempt to lock within book covers, not unlike the bare walls of an unfurnished room, the rich and multifaceted world the writer, poet, scholar, translator, intellectual and human being Kosturkov has been building for many decades, brick by brick, stone by stone. The first part in this collection revolves around the idea of the rational and disciplined knowledge in constructing Arguments. The second and somewhat unruly part strives to capture the elusive and the emotional, as well as the (mis)remembered in our Affinities. The third gives our readers the record of the archeologist who has embarked on an excavation in the Archives. It is in the dynamics between these three parts that the editors have tried to approximate the sense of the world created and inhabited by Yordan Kosturkov, if we threw all furniture out the window.

Description : From Avant Garde to Pluralism: An On-The-Spot-History is an overview written at-the-moment of the evolution of modern art in the second half of the 20th century. Irving Sandler was a trend-spotter, and insider, and an accomplice in the art world. The artists were his friends and collaborators. Here, assembled for the first time, is a selection of Sandler's seminal writings from half a century ago to the present. These essays chronicle the sweeping changes in Modern Art, from the isms of 1950's and 60's - Abstract Expressionism, Pop and Minimalism - to the pluralism, where the artist tends to reject the idea of being part of a group, that has dominated the art world for the last thirty years.
