Reckoning with the Imagination
Wittgenstein and the Aesthetics of Literary Experience
Charles Altieri
Charles Altieri argues for a reconsideration of the Kantian tradition of Idealist ethics, which he believes can restore much of the power of the arguments for the role of aesthetics in art.


"Charles Altieri is one of our foremost literary/philosophical theorists and critics of poetry, and anything he writes commands attention. He is a master of these realms and a fine-tuned reader in the disciplines he knows so well. Reckoning with the Imagination is a rigorous and impressive book."—David Mikics, John and Rebecca Moores Professor of English, University of Houston, author of Slow Reading in a Hurried Age



Lyric Orientations
Hölderlin, Rilke, and the Poetics of Community
Hannah Vandegrift Eldridge
In Lyric Orientations, Hannah Vandegrift Eldridge explores the power of lyric poetry to stir the social and emotional lives of human beings in the face of the ineffable nature of our mortality. She focuses on two German-speaking masters of lyric prose and poetry: Friedrich Hölderlin (1770–1843) and Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926).

Reframing Decadence
C. P. Cavafy's Imaginary Portraits
Peter Jeffreys
