English literature in context


Paul Poplawski (ed.)

Publisher : Cambridge University Press

ISBN : 9780521173032

Acc. No.: 73263                Call No.: 820.9 P825eng literature

Book Description: Supporting the study of English literature from the Middle Ages to the present, this book is designed as an introductory text AND a helpful reference tool for an entire English Literature degree. Its key mission is to help students understand the link between the historical context in which the literature developed, how this has influenced the literature of the period and how subsequent periods in literature have been influenced by those that precede them. The book is carefully structured for undergraduate use, with a rich range of illustrations and textboxes that enhance and summarise vital background material. The seven chronological chapters are written by a team of expert contributors who are also highly experienced teachers with a clear sense of the requirements of the undergraduate English curriculum. Each analyses a major historical period, surveying and documenting the cultural contexts that have shaped English literature, and focusing on key texts. In addition to the narrative survey, each chapter includes a detailed chronology, providing a quick-reference guide to the period; contextual readings of select literary texts; and annotated suggestions for further reading.

laser Book Description: Cambridge University Press, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New (illustrator). 2nd edition. . A well-known introduction to the physical and engineering principles of laser operation and design for graduates and researchers who specialize in lasers, this second edition includes much new material, especially in the areas of solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers, and laser cavities. Throughout the text, this book uses simple explanations on key concepts, to lead the reader from the basics of laser action to advanced topics in laser physics and engineering. The new edition contains a new chapter on laser operation above threshold, including extensive discussion of laser amplifiers. Thorough explanations, worked examples, and many homework problems make this book essential reading for undergraduates and first-year graduates in science and engineering taking courses on lasers. Researchers will find summaries of key types of lasers, the use of many unique theoretical descriptions, and the extensive bibliography a valuable source of reference for their careers.

A feminist reader : feminist thought from Sappho to Satrapi vol. – I

feminist  Book Description: Modern feminism has deep roots. Over the past 2500 years, female writers and thinkers across the world have expressed their feelings about gender roles, their frustrations and successes, their struggles for equality. This four-volume anthology brings together the richest collection of feminist texts available with over 120 entries, most of them complete essays or chapters, arranged broadly chronologically. Readers can juxtapose seventeenth-century ‘New World’ feminist writing with European counterparts, historical with poststructuralist feminist writing, Asian with Anglophone voices and ‘difference feminism’ with universalist statements. Each text features an editorial headnote and annotation, while the general introduction sets feminism in its historical and global contexts. The anthology’s inclusion of multiple genres – letters and poems as well as philosophical or polemical prose – offers new possibilities for the study of genre and feminist discourse.

  • An anthology of feminist writing across centuries, genres and national boundaries, from Sappho to the twenty-first century
  •   Includes essays, poems, prose works and letters    
  •  Each writer is introduced and placed in the context of feminist thought as well as her own time; tricky passages are annotated
