Mary Shelley

Angela Wright

‘This book is an excellent introduction to Mary Shelley’s life and work – indeed, it is a must-read for all serious students of Shelley and the Gothic – but it is also stands on its own as a fine work of literary history and criticism, based as it is on meticulous scholarship. It insightfully shows, as few other studies have done, the symbolic and affective work done by the Gothic not just in ‘Frankenstein’ but in all of Shelley’s major novels and stories from the late 1810s through the late 1830s.’ - Professor Jerrold E. Hogle, University of Arizona

Chaucer’s Gifts

Exchange and Value in the Canterbury Tales

Robert Epstein

‘In this major study, Robert Epstein expertly and nimbly draws on (and intervenes in) gift theory to overturn a long tradition of Canterbury Tales criticism, demonstrating that, for Chaucer, social relations were not inevitably structured by the market – and neither are they for us. In this way, Epstein not only provides a more profound appreciation for the imaginative scope of the Tales, but also a more expansive grasp of social possibilities for the present.’

– Robert Meyer-Lee, Agnes Scott College

Kant’s Doctrine of Right in the 21st Century

Larry Krasnoff, Nuria Sánchez Madrid and Paula Satne

‘The most important advances in Kant scholarship often appear as collections of essays; this essential volume on Kant’s Doctrine of Right and twenty-first-century political philosophy is no exception. In good Kantian fashion, the essays apply cutting-edge scholarship to produce pairs of contrasting answers to key questions in political philosophy.’
– Professor Elisabeth Ellis, University of Otago
