Modernism and after: English literature 1910 – 1939


John Smart

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 978-0-521-71156-2

Acc. No.: 73279       Call No.: 820.900912 Sm636


Book Description: Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. Modernism and After focuses on those writers working in English between 1910 and 1939 whose work signalled a dramatic change in the sense of what art could and should be. An overview of Modernism is provided, but the book recognises that the term should not become a strait-jacket into which we try to fit a writer’s individual distinctiveness. Rather, significant poetry and prose works are explored in the light both of the events of the time and of other ‘modernist’ developments in areas such as music, architecture and the visual arts.

Intimacy and sexuality in the age of Shakespeare 


James M. Bromley 

Publisher: Cambridge  University Press

ISBN: 978-1-107-01518-0

Acc. No.: 73408            Call No.: 820.9353809031 B868


Book Description: James Bromley argues that Renaissance texts circulate knowledge about a variety of non-standard sexual practices and intimate life narratives, including non-monogamy, anal eroticism, masochism and cross-racial female homoeroticism. Rethinking current assumptions about intimacy in Renaissance drama, poetry and prose, the book blends historicized and queer approaches to embodiment, narrative and temporality. An important contribution to Renaissance literary studies, queer theory and the history of sexuality, the book demonstrates the relevance of Renaissance literature to today. Through close readings of William Shakespeare’s ‘problem comedies’, Christopher Marlowe’s ‘Hero and Leander’, plays by Beaumont and Fletcher, Thomas Middleton’s ‘The Nice Valour’ and Lady Mary Wroth’s sonnet sequence ‘Pamphilia to Amphilanthus’ and her prose romance ‘The Urania’, Bromley re-evaluates notions of the centrality of deep, abiding affection in Renaissance culture and challenges our own investment in a narrowly defined intimate sphere.
