Welsh Valentine Songs and Poems

Rhiannon Ifans

‘One must warmly welcome a volume by a scholar who is now established as the foremost authority on this particular genre of native verse. And it is doubly gratifying to find our vibrant tradition of Valentine song being introduced here to readers beyond the bounds of Welsh-language culture itself.’’
- Roy Saer, Welsh Folk-Song Society

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

Religion, Evolution and Heredity

Edited by Marius Turda

This book engages with the relationship between religion, evolution and heredity, by bringing together two of its aspects that are frequently discussed separately: Darwinism and eugenics. It also demonstrates that religion has played a greater role in shaping modern debates on evolution and human improvement than current scholarship has so far acknowledged.

Re-envisaging the First Age of Cinematic Horror, 1896-1934

Quanta of Fear

David Annwn Jones

‘This is an excellent book that provides horror scholars of the future with a foundation upon which to build. Re-envisaging the First Age of Cinematic Horror will be of great use to anyone researching the genre’s earliest filmic incarnations, and is a godsend to those of us teaching classes on the beginnings of cinema.’
- Dr Johnny Walker, Northumbria University

Therapeutic Reading in Later Medieval England

Daniel McCann

‘This important volume, which explores the concept of therapeutic reading in late medieval English religious culture, demonstrates a deep knowledge of medieval theories about affect, combined with acute sensitivity to the specific ways in which religious writings produce feeling in their recipients.’
- Denis Renevey, Professor of Medieval English Language and Literature, University of Lausanne

Shards of Light

Emyr Humphreys

‘Humphreys gifts us in his hundredth year with an evocative collection which is testimony to the fact that old age, like every other stage of life, has its poetry too. ‘A Day in Hand’ reads ‘Awake! There are so few. / This bright coinage is / Going out of circulation’ … but Humphreys’s own hand is still spilling out gems.’
- Emeritus Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales

Having a Go at the Kaiser

A Welsh Family at War

Gethin Matthews

‘This fascinating and valuable collection of letters is a rich historical resource. What is particularly useful and attractive is how it provides a view of the Great War from the perspective of the soldier – and one, moreover, which places that experience within a wider social context. The letters add a valuable element of personal colour, to be sure, but they also reveal a deeper reality behind the conflict and take us beyond the familiar themes of trench warfare and the Western Front to embrace the war more generally.’
- Paul Brendan O’Leary, Sir John Williams, Professor of Welsh History, Aberystwyth University

The Spanish Anarchists of Northern Australia

Revolution in the Sugar Cane Fields

Robert Mason

‘Robert Mason has crafted an essential text for our understanding of both Australian political history and multicultural Australia. The narrative moves masterfully between the fascinating biographies of the key anarchists (particularly Salvador Torrents) and sub-ethnic and generational distinctions (early settlers versus newcomers) among the “Spaniards” that conditioned their distinctive actions and attitudes in Australia to twentieth-century events – most notably the Spanish Civil War.’
- Professor William Douglass, University of Nevada
