On the Threshold of Eurasia
Revolutionary Poetics in the Caucasus
Leah Michele Feldman
On the Threshold of Eurasia explores the idea of the Russian and Soviet "East" as a political, aesthetic, and scientific system of ideas that emerged through a series of intertextual encounters produced by Russians and Turkic Muslims on the imperial periphery amidst the revolutionary transition from 1905 to 1929. Identifying the role of Russian...



Modernism à la Mode
Fashion and the Ends of Literature
Elizabeth Sheehan, Elizabeth M. Sheehan
Modernism à la Mode argues that fashion describes why and how literary modernism matters in its own historical moment and ours.

Scott Fitzgerald, turned to fashion to...



Understanding Others
Peoples, Animals, Pasts
Dominick LaCapra
To what extent do we and can we understand others—other peoples, species, times, and places? What is the role of others within ourselves, epitomized in the notion of unconscious forces?

Quick Cattle and Dying Wishes
People and Their Animals in Early Modern England
Erica Fudge
What was the life of a cow in early modern England like? What would it be like to milk that same cow, day-in, day-out, for over a decade? How did people feel about and toward the animals that they worked with, tended, and often killed? With these questions, Erica Fudge begins her investigation into a lost aspect of early modern life: the...



Light without Heat
The Observational Mood from Bacon to Milton
David Carroll Simon

While scholars have often looked to this period in order to narrate the triumph of methodical rigor as a quintessentially modern intellectual value, Simon describes the appeal of open-ended...

Spirit Matters
Occult Beliefs, Alternative Religions, and the Crisis of Faith in Victorian Britain
J. Jeffrey Franklin
Spirit Matters explores the heterodox and unorthodox religions and spiritualities that arose in Victorian Britain as a result of the faltering of Christian faith in the face of modernity, the rise of the truth-telling authority of science, and the first full exposure of the West to non-Christian religions. J. Jeffrey Franklin investigates the...



Populating the Novel
Literary Form and the Politics of Surplus Life
Emily Steinlight
From the teeming streets of Dickens’s London to the households of domestic fiction, nineteenth-century British writers constructed worlds crammed beyond capacity with human life. In Populating the Novel, Emily Steinlight contends that rather than simply reflecting demographic growth, such pervasive literary crowding contributed to a seismic...
