  4. Narrative Space and Time - Out Now

    Space is a central topic in cultural and narrative theory today, although in most cases theory assumes Newtonian absolute space. However, the idea of a universal homogeneous space is now obsolete.

  8. New for March - Bodily Pain in Romantic Literature

    This book brings to light the significance of bodily pain for the literature, philosophy, and science of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. Davies brings Romantic studies in conversation with the recent work in medical anthropology that offers a fresh understanding of the pain of the body.
