The Archeology of Knowledge

The Archeology of KnowledgeThe Archeology of Knowledge

`Michel Foucault is a very brilliant writer ... he has a remark-able angle of vision, a highly disciplined and coherent one, that informs his work to such a high degree as to make the work
sui generis original.' Edward W. Said
`The Archaeology of Know/edge ... provides an unusually sharp outline of [Foucault's]
theoretical stance as well as a focused critique of the history of ideas.' Jean Claude Guedon
'A necessary guide to Foucault's often difficult ideas ... and to his overall historical ambition, which is to define the "soil" out of which contemporary events in a given period grow.'

Women's Fiction: From 1945 to Today
Women's Fiction: From 1945 to TodayNow in its second edition and with new chapters covering such texts as Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love and 'yummy mummy' novels such as Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It, this is a wide-ranging survey of popular women's fiction from 1945 to the present.
Examining key trends in popular writing for women in each decade, Women's Fiction offers case study readings of major British and American writers. Through these readings, the book explores how popular texts often neglected by feminist literary criticism have charted the shifting demands, aspirations and expectations of women in the 20th and 21st centuries.


Supplement II, Part 1: W. H. Auden to O. Henry
Supplement II, Part 2: Robinson Jeffers to Yvor Winters
The essays in Supplement II, all written by recognized experts and published here for the first time, carry on the tradition of writing for the general reader in a way that the specialist will also find interesting and informative. In several instances—most notably the essays on R. P. Blackmur, Malcolm Cowley, and W. E. B. Du Bois—the authors have produced the fullest account to date of the writer's life and work.
