Engendering the Subject
Engendering the Subject (October 1991)
Gender and Self-Representation in Contemporary Women's Fiction
Sally Robinson - Author

"I like best the clear, direct, and unrelenting manner in which Robinson sets forth her argument. She writes lucidly and avoids jargon. As a result, the text is most enjoyable reading.

"Her basic approach takes us to the heart of some very pressing issues. By choosing to focus on the question of the subject position, Robinson elects an extremely significant and timely topic which is both important within current debates in feminist critici...(Read More)
Wykked Wyves and the Woes of Marriage
Wykked Wyves and the Woes of Marriage (September 1990)
Misogamous Literature from Juvenal to Chaucer
Katharina M. Wilson - Editor
Elizabeth M. Makowski - Editor

The distrust and hatred of matrimony is a recurring theme in Western literature. In this volume, Wilson and Makowski show that in their repeated imagery, continuous themes, and rhetorical devices, misogamous texts closely parallel and reflect economic and demographic shifts, and theological and legal innovation. Analysis of the literature demonstrates a link between the growing secularism and careerism of the late middle ages and the reduction of wo...(Read More)

Michael Steinman - Author

Heroic man and "the lies of history," the myths that surrounded them, were vital to the Irish poet William Butler Yeats. This study examines the four Anglo-Irish historical figures who dominated his life and art: Oscar Wilde, Charles Stewart Parnell, Jonathan Swift, and Roger Casement.

"Literature is too re...(Read More)
Alchemy and Finnegans Wake
Alchemy and Finnegans Wake (June 1980)
Barbara DiBernard - Author

In the first full-length study of Joyce's direct and indirect use of alchemical allusions, DiBernard shows how an awareness of the alchemical metaphor guides a reader through the richness of Finnegans Wake. For example, the alchemical transmutation of lead into gold parallels the transmutation of the dross and commotion of ordinary life into a work of art.

This study shows how the themes of Joyce's novel...(Read More)
