Colonial and Post-Colonial Goan Literature in Portuguese

Woven Palms

Edited by Paul Melo e Castro

‘The traditions of thought associated with colonial and post-colonial Goan literature are long-lasting and diverse. However, while much in the area of post-colonial studies in India has addressed literary texts as central to a broader social and political understanding, in the scholarly work on Goa there has been a drift to remain in the realm of the discipline, both geographically and thematically. This book initiates a cosmopolitan dialogue not only with other literatures of India but also with other disciplines, challenging the borders of univocal academic location and thinking.’
- Professor Rosa Maria, ISCTE-University of Lisbon Institute

Minerva’s Gothics

The Politics and Poetics of Romantic Exchange, 1780-1820

Elizabeth A. Neiman

‘Insightfully tracing the commercial commodification of both reading material and the reading activity itself among Romantic-era women readers and writers, Minerva’s Gothics will make an immediate difference to the ways in which we think about Romantic-era fiction, and indeed about Romantic-era reading practices generally.’
- Professor Stephen C. Behrendt, University of Nebraska

Monastic Life in the Medieval British Isles

Essays in Honour of Janet Burton

Edited by Karen Stöber, Emilia Jamroziak and Julie Kerr

‘This volume pays homage to Janet Burton’s lifetime work on British monastic and ecclesiastical history. She has written on bishops and Cistercians, and has importantly been a pioneer in work on Cistercian nuns – as well as focusing on monks, Benedictine and Cistercian monastic communities, her work has broken new ground in our understanding of communities of regular canons. The papers in this volume demonstrate close ties to, and inspiration by, Janet Burton throughout. A solid, indeed spectacular, reflection of her work, but also a volume of substantial studies.’
- Constance H. Berman, Professor of History Emerita, University of Iowa

Carmen Martín Gaite

Poetics, Visual Elements and Space

Ester Bautista Botello

‘Through the lens of geographical space (interior, exterior, urban, domestic, visual – physical places as well as the worlds of dream, fantasy and memory), Ester Bautista Botello studies Carmen Martín Gaite’s ample production in order to discern a poetics of space in her work, what Martín Gaite might see as “the journey as the centre of all storytelling”. She draws not only from the author’s narrative fictions, but also from her musings on the process of writing (articles, lectures, and collections). Well documented and thoughtfully constructed, this book offers a new way for readers of one of Spain’s foremost twentieth-century writers to approach (or discover) her important work.’
- Emeritus Professor David T. Gies, University of Virginia

Servants and the Gothic, 1764-1831

A half-told tale

Kathleen Hudson

‘Servants and the Gothic offers a fresh, engaging perspective on the genre. By drawing attention to the liminal, often oppositional voices of servant characters in a range of novels, plays and bluebooks, it illuminates the Gothic’s narrative bricolage and its interrogation of established social and literary structures.’
- Dr Deborah Russell, University of York
