The Palgrave Handbook of Literature and the City

This book is about the impact of literature upon cities world-wide, and cities upon literature.

This book is about the impact of literature upon cities world-wide, and cities upon literature. It examines why the city matters so much to contemporary critical theory, and why it has inspired so many forms of writing which have attempted to deal with its challenges to think about it and to represent it. Gathering together 40 contributors who look at different modes of writing and film-making in throughout the world, this handbook asks how the modern city has engendered so much theoretical consideration, and looks at cities and their literature from China to Peru, from New York to Paris, from London to Kinshasa. It looks at some of the ways in which modern cities – whether capitals, shanty-towns, industrial or ‘rust-belt’ – have forced themselves on people’s ways of thinking and writing.

The Oxford Handbook of the Literature of the U.S. South brings together contemporary views of the literature of the region in a series of chapters employing critical tools not traditionally used in approaching Southern literature. It assumes ideas of the South--global, multicultural, plural: more Souths than South--that would not have been embraced two or three decades ago, and it similarly expands the idea of literature itself. Representative of the current range of activity in the field of Southern literary studies, it challenges earlier views of antebellum Southern literature, as well as, in its discussions of twentieth-century writing, questions the assumption that the Southern Renaissance of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s was the supreme epoch of Southern expression, that writing to which all that had come before had led and by which all that came afterward was judged. As well as canonical Southern writers, it examines Native American literature, Latina/o literature, Asian American as well as African American literatures, Caribbean studies, sexuality studies, the relationship of literature to film, and a number of other topics which are relatively new to the field.

They sketch the derivation and history of each term, including especially lucid explanations of verse forms and providing a firm sense of literary periods and movements from classicism to postmodernism. The Handbook also supplies a helpful map to the intricate and at times confusing terrain of literary theory at the beginning of the twenty-first century: the author has designated a series of terms, from New Criticism to queer theory, that serves as a concise but thorough introduction to recent developments in literary study. Mikics’s Handbook is ideal for classroom use at all levels, from freshman to graduate. Instructors can assign individual entries, many of which are well-shaped essays in their own right. Useful bibliographical suggestions are given at the end of most entries. The Handbook’s enjoyable style and thoughtful perspective will encourage students to browse and learn more. Every reader of literature will want to own this compact, delightfully written guide.

Literary Criticism

Literary Criticism

Also, while this handbook cannot claim to have exhausted all that needs to be known as far as the tools of literary criticism are concerned, it has nevertheless taken into consideration, the immediate needs of students.

The teaching/learning of literature in English has been and remains a challenging and an arduous task both to native and non-native speakers of the English language. So far, one of the reasons advanced to explain this phenomenon is the ever-evolving nature of the English language itself. This implies that in order to appreciate literary texts in their wider intellectual and historical contexts, one needs to have a sophisticated mastery of the language. However, the good news here is that without claiming to have a perfect grasp of the English language, the author of this book has painstakingly made the task an easy one both for teachers and learners. Consequently, this book comes to serve as an aide to both students and teachers, especially those whose language of instruction is or will be English, but who have had a very distant relationship with the language. Also, while this handbook cannot claim to have exhausted all that needs to be known as far as the tools of literary criticism are concerned, it has nevertheless taken into consideration, the immediate needs of students. In essence, it is a working manual for beginners in literary studies as it provides brief definitions and descriptions of a variety of literary terms which are invaluable to any serious budding literary scholar. The book will be beneficial to students of secondary and post-secondary levels, especially those who intend to pursue literary criticism as an academic career. There are more than one hundred terms and concepts briefly defined with incisive examples and illustrations provided to furnish readers with the best that is expected of them at their early stage in literary criticism.
