  5. 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. Black holes, multiple dimensions, quantum entanglement, and spatio-temporal distortions of relativity have passed into culture at large. This book examines whether narrative can be used to represent these "impossible" spaces. Read More.

  6. 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. Extending ongoing debates about literature and medicine in the Romantic era, he argues that for a number of Romantic-period writers, pain became central to ethical thinking about the singularity or seperateness of individual people.

    Routledge Revivals - Mothers and Other Clowns: The Stories of Alice Munro

    First published in 1992, this is the first study of the work of Alice Munro, winner of the 2013 Nobel prize for literature, to focus on her obsession with mothering, and to relate it to the hallucinatory quality of her magic realism. A bizarre collection of clowning mothers parade across the pages of Munro’s fiction, playing practical jokes, performing stunts, and dressing in disguises that recycle vintage literary images. Magdalene Redekop studies this with the aim of gaining increased understanding of Munro’s evolving comic vision.
