The Romantic Moderns : English Writers, Artists and the Imagination from Virginia Woolf to John PiperWinner of the 2010 Guardian First Book Award: a groundbreaking reassessment of English cultural life in the thirties and forties.
In the 1930s and 1940s, while the battles for modern art and modern society were being fought in Paris and Spain, it seemed to some a betrayal that John Betjeman and John Piper were in love with a provincial world of old churches and tea shops.

Family Politics in Early Modern Literature

Family Politics in Early Modern LiteratureThis book considers the ways that family relationships (parental, marital, sibling or other) mimic, and stand in for, political ones in the Early Modern period, and vice versa. Bringing together leading international scholars in literary-historical fields to produce scholarship informed by the perspective of contemporary politics, the volume examines the ways in which the family defines itself in transformative moments of potential crisis – birth and death, maturation, marriage – moments when the family is negotiating its position within and through broader cultural frameworks, and when, as a result, family ‘politics’ become most apparent.

Modern English and Its Heritage 2nd editionModern English and Its Heritage 2nd edition

Whether or not English becomes eventually the universal auxiliary language for international communication-as predicted confidently in some quarters and striven for in others-there is no gainsaying the fact that World War II has given our tongue greater prestige and wider currency than it ever before enjoyed, thanks to the stationing of British and American troops-especially the latter all over the globe. The American jeep and bulldozer, chewing gum and candy, are admired and desired throughout the inhabited world today, and in many cases the American names for these commodities have been taken over more or less directly into local languages or dialects.

The Hidden Oracle: The Trials of Apollo. Book 1The Hidden Oracle: The Trials of Apollo. Book 1

How do you punish an immortal? By making him human. After angering his father, Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the 4,000-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus' favour. But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go: an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Power, Plain English, and the Rise of Modern Poetry

Power, Plain English, and the Rise of Modern PoetryIn this engaging book David Rosen offers a radically new account of Modern poetry and revises our understanding of its relation to Romanticism. British poets from Wordsworth to Auden attempted to present themselves simultaneously as persons of power and as moral voices in their communities. The modern lyric derives its characteristic complexities—psychological, ethical, formal—from the extraordinary difficulty of this effort.
