More Details..

After the fall of the Sassanian Empire and with it the gradual decline of Middle Persian as a literary language, New Persian literature emerged in Transoxiana, beyond the frontiers of present-day Iran, and was written and read in India even before it became firmly established in cities such as Isfahan on the Iranian plateau. Over the course of a millennium (ca. 900–1900 CE), Persian established itself as a contact vernacular and an international literary language from Sarajevo to Madras, with Persian poetry serving as a universal cultural cachet for literati both Muslim and non-Muslim. The role of Persian, beyond its early habitat of Iran and other Islamic lands, has long been recognized: European scholars first came to Persian via Turkey and British orientalists via India. Yet the universal popularity of poets such as Sa'di and Hâfez of Shiraz and the ultimate rise of Iran to claim the centre of Persian writing and scholarship led to a relative neglect of the Persianate periphery until recently. This volume contributes to the scholarship of the Persianate fringe with the aid of the abundant material (notably in Tajik, Uzbek and Russian) long neglected by Western scholars and the perspectives of a new generation on this complex and important aspect of Persian literature.

More Details..

Andrew Lang (1844-1912) had a pivotal role in a number of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century discourses. He was among the founders of the discipline of psychical research' - its investigation of spiritualism complementing his ideas on the relationship between religion and magic - as well as being committed to the promotion of Scottish history. Lang was also an outspoken supporter of the move to have English Literature accepted as a field of study in universities and, most famously, he was intrinsic to the revival of interest in folklore. The areas in which Lang's studies overlap have not been fully explored. Although he himself tried to bridge the gap between folklore and anthropology on one side and psychical research on the other, the threads of his work have not been drawn together and examined. And, despite Lang's popularity as a writer and a compiler at the time, there are no scholarly editions of his work available. This edition enables a more complete assessment of Lang's work, covering the four areas of study with which he is most associated: myths and magic; literary criticism; Scotland; and folklore. It also includes previously unpublished works and letters. It will provide a starting point for new research into the unique position Lang held in the development of literary and cultural modernity.

More Details..

The Chartist movement remains one of the most studied social and political movements in modern British history. But despite this interest the literary and cultural dimensions of Chartism have only recently begun to attract scholarly attention. As a result of recent work, however, Chartist poetry and drama are becoming increasingly established in the mainstream of literary studies, but this burgeoning interest is hampered by the unavailability of key texts and there is currently no scholarly edition of Chartist poetry. This collection will break new ground by making available the most significant literary productions of the Chartist movement, each volume addressing a different problem within the Chartist literary tradition. Volume 1 focuses on the decision of Thomas Cooper to work in the epic genre, thereby simultaneously challenging and affirming the claims of elite' culture. Volume 2 follows Chartist leader, Ernest Jones, in and through his poetry, and the evolution of late Romantic tropes in the early Victorian period. Finally, Volume 3 explores the way in which Chartist authors addressed the problems posed by working in a dramatic genre (tragedy) which might be thought of as hostile to Chartist literary and political aspirations. The collection will make an important contribution to the scholarly processes of recovery and canon revision and in addition, it will facilitate further scholarly work on the Chartist movement in particular, as well as contributing to broader research on the cultural history of the working classes in the nineteenth century. The series will be of interest to scholars of literature and theatre, historians, social scientists and other scholars of the period.

More Details..

This collection gathers together a stellar group of contributors offering innovative perspectives on the issues of language and translation in postcolonial studies. In a world where bi- and multilingualism have become quite normal, this volume identifies a gap in the critical apparatus in postcolonial studies in order to read cultural texts emerging out of multilingual contexts. The role of translation and an awareness of the multilingual spaces in which many postcolonial texts are written are fundamental issues with which postcolonial studies needs to engage in a far more concerted fashion. The essays in this book by contributors from Australia, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Cyprus, Malaysia, Quebec, Ireland, France, Scotland, the US, and Italy outline a pragmatics of language and translation of value to scholars with an interest in the changing forms of literature and culture in our times. Essay topics include: multilingual textual politics; the benefits of multilingual education in postcolonial countries; the language of gender and sexuality in postcolonial literatures; translational cities; postcolonial calligraphy; globalization and the new digital ecology.

Dreams have been significant in many different cultures, carrying messages about this world and others, posing problems about knowledge, truth, and what it means to be human. This thought-provoking collection of essays explores dreams and visions in early modern Europe, canvassing the place of the dream and dream-theory in texts and in social movements. In topics ranging from the dreams of animals to the visions of Elizabeth I, and from prophetic dreams to ghosts in political writing, this book asks what meanings early modern people found in dreams.

More Details..

This book makes an important intervention in the ongoing debates about modernism, science, and the divisions of early Twentieth-Century print culture. In order to establish Joyce's place in the nexus of modernism and scientific thought, Drouin uses the methods of periodical studies and textual criticism to examine the impact of Einstein's relativity theories on the development of Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939). Looking at experiments with space, time, motion, and perspective, it rigorously surveys discourse of science and the novel in the print culture networks connected to Joyce, with concrete analysis of avant-garde magazines, newspapers, popular science books, BBC pamphlets, and radio broadcasts between 1914 and 1939. These sources elucidate changes that Joyce made to the manuscripts, typescripts, and page proofs of certain episodes of his final two novels. The new evidence establishes for the first time the nature of the material link between Joyce and non-technical science, and the manner in which Ulysses and Finnegans Wake owe their structure and meaning to the humanistic issues associated with science during the wartime and inter-war years. In examining the relationships between Joyce's later work and the popular science industry, the book elucidates the often conflicting attitudes toward science in inter-war British print culture, filling in a piece of the puzzle that is modernism's relationship to the new physics and, simultaneously, the history of the novel.
