The Lyric Theory Reader collects major essays on the modern idea of lyric, made available here for the first time in one place. Representing a wide range of perspectives in Anglo-American literary criticism from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the collection as a whole documents the diversity and energy of ongoing critical conversations about lyric poetry. Virginia Jackson and Yopie Prins frame these conversations with a general introduction, bibliographies for further reading, and introductions to each of the anthology’s ten sections: genre theory, historical models of lyric, New Criticism, structuralist and post-structuralist reading, Frankfurt School approaches, phenomenologies of lyric reading, avant-garde anti-lyricism, lyric and sexual difference, and comparative lyric. Designed for students, teachers, scholars, poets, and readers with a general interest in poetics, this book presents an intellectual history of the theory of lyric reading that has circulated both within and beyond the classroom, wherever poetry is taught, read, discussed, and debated today.

"Victorian Literature" is a comprehensive and fully annotated anthology with a flexible design that allows teachers and students to pursue traditional or innovative lines of inquiry. Included in this collection are 105 of the period's prose, poetry, drama, and nonfiction writers, including such canonical authors as Tennyson, Arnold, the Brownings, Carlyle, Ruskin, the Rossettis, Wilde, Eliot, and the Brontes. Fifty authors are women. In addition to selections from the major authors of the period, the volume promotes an ideologically and culturally varied view of Victorian society by including women, working-class, colonial, gay and lesbian writers, and dialect poets. These selections offer readers the opportunity to study new voices beyond the canon. There are 5 contextual sections covering the Condition of England; Gender, Women, and Sexuality; Literature and the Arts; Religion and Science; and Empire. These contexts are interdisciplinary in nature and examine the social, cultural, artistic, and historical factors at play during the period. They also contain unexpected sub-sections on topics of recent scholarship, such as environmentalism and animal rights; mass literacy and mass media; sex and sexuality; Victorian childhood; melodrama and comedy; the Irish question; ruling India and the Indian Mutiny; innovations in print culture; and the science of race. The coverage is further expanded with an extensive website for teachers and students that presents additional contextual readings (each with new sub-sections, such as Orientalism, ecclesiastical parties, literature and new technologies, law and the sexual subject), visual materials, audio recordings, maps, chronologies, and thematic indexes. These are fully integrated with the text and include detailed annotations about names, places, events, allusions, and leading ideas. From the canon to its extensions to its contexts, this website is a fresh and exciting introduction to the diversity of the Victorian age.

American Women Poets in the 21st Century

Where Lyric Meets Language

View: 8063

Poetry in America is flourishing in this new millennium and asking serious questions of itself: Is writing marked by gender and if so, how? What does it mean to be experimental? How can lyric forms be authentic? This volume builds on the energetic tensions inherent in these questions, focusing on ten major American women poets whose collective work shows an incredible range of poetic practice. Each section of the book is devoted to a single poet and contains new poems; a brief "statement of poetics" by the poet herself in which she explores the forces — personal, aesthetic, political — informing her creative work; a critical essay on the poet's work; a biographical statement; and a bibliography listing works by and about the poet. Underscoring the dynamic give and take between poets and the culture at large, this anthology is indispensable for anyone interested in poetry, gender and the creative process. CONTRIBUTORS: Rae Armantrout, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Lucie Brock Broido, Jorie Graham, Barbara Guest, Lyn Hejinian, Brenda Hillman, Susan Howe, Ann Lauterbach, Harryette Mullen.

Teaching British Women Writers, 1750-1900

Page: 235

The exuberant recovery from obscurity of scores of British women writers has prompted professors and publishers to revisit publication of women's writings. New curricular inclusion of these sometimes quirky, often passionate writers profoundly disrupts traditional pedagogical assumptions about what constitutes -literature-. This book addresses this radically changed educational landscape, offering practical, proven teaching strategies for newly -recovered- writers, both in special-topics courses and in traditional teaching environments. Moreover, it addresses the institutional issues confronting feminist scholars who teach women writers in a variety of settings and the kinds of career-altering effects the decision to teach this material can have on junior and senior scholars alike. Collectively, these essays argue that teaching noncanonical women writers invigorates the curriculum as a whole, not only by introducing the voices of women writers, but by incorporating new genres, by asking new questions about readers' assumptions and aesthetic values, and by altering the power relations between teacher and student for the better."
