Helps readers to think critically about the nature of modern poetry, and to engage with broader questions about aesthetics, language, culture and imagination. Includes texts by poets, critics, theorists and philosophers, ranging from Ezra Pound to Jacques Derrida. Texts in translation from French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian are presented alongside the work of writers from Britain, Ireland, the United States, Africa, India and the Caribbean. Each text is accompanied by a brief biographical and thematic introduction. A system of cross-referencing points up significant connections and disagreements between the texts. Includes a thematic index and chronology.

Teaching British Women Writers, 1750-1900

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."

Victorian poetry was read and enjoyed by a much larger audience than is sometimes thought. Publication in widely-circulating periodicals, reprinting in book reviews, and excerpting in novels and essays ensured that major poets such as Tennyson, Browning, Hardy and Rossetti were household names, and they remain popular today. The Cambridge Introduction to Victorian Poetry provides an accessible overview of British poetry from 1830 to 1901, paying particular attention to its role in mass media print culture. Designed to interest both students and scholars, the book traces lively dialogues between poets and explains poets' choices of form, style and language. It also demonstrates poetry's relevance to Victorian debates on science, social justice, religion, imperialism, and art. Featuring a glossary of literary terms, a guide to further reading, and two examples of close readings of Victorian poems, this introduction is the ideal starting-point for the study of verse in the nineteenth century.

In den späten sechziger Jahren nahm Giorgio Agamben an Martin Heideggers Seminaren im südfranzösischen Le Thor teil. Damals entstand auch sein erstes Buch L’uomo senza contenuto, das 1970 erstmals erschien. Selbstbewußt und radikal stürzt er sich auf klassische Positionen der Ästhetik, er konfrontiert Platon, Kant und Hegel mit Künstlern und Autoren der Klassischen Moderne. In einer Zeit, in der die Kunst nicht länger die Funktion hat, das Wesen der Wirklichkeit zur Erscheinung zu bringen, wird sie zu einer selbstzerstörerischen Kraft, der Künstler, so Agamben, zu einem »Menschen ohne Inhalt«. Agambens erstes Buch liegt nun endlich auch auf Deutsch vor. »Agamben hat die verwaiste Stelle des Meisterdenkers eingenommen.« Die Welt
