Описание: The first anthology of Decadent short stories reflecting a variety of fin-de-siecle themes This wide-ranging anthology showcases for the first time the short story as the most attractive genre for British writers who experimented with Decadent themes and styles. From familiar writers such as Ernest Dowson, Arthur Symons and Oscar Wilde to less known writers such as Charles Ricketts, Vincent O’Sullivan and Una Ashworth Taylor the 36 stories and 2 parodies demonstrate ideas of class, gender, sexuality, and science as well as the Gothic, social satire, Symbolist fantasy, fairy tale, Naturalism/Realism, Impressionism, erotica, and the scientific romance. The selections represent the important role that the Little Magazine culture played in the unprecedented explosion of the Decadent short story in the 1890s. A full introductory essay sets the scene, while an introduction and endnotes for each story and explanatory material at the end of the book make this anthology stand out.Key Features and Benefits • Brings a variety of rare and important stories together in one volume reflecting an influential literary genre • Expands the scope of Decadence by bringing together male and female voices, obscure and famous authors, and stylistic and thematic concerns such as New Woman fiction, the Gothic, Impressionism, Realism, paganism, class, homosexuality, and science • Includes a detailed introduction, an introduction and endnotes for each story, 3 appendices containing parodies, background sources and a chronologically arranged list of facts and publications related to Aesthetic and Decadent stories, and a select bibliography Kostas Boyiopoulos is Teaching Associate at the Department of English Studies, Durham University.Yoonjoung Choi is tutor of English at Durham University.

Описание: This collaborative book has a twofold purpose. On the one hand, the authors present a new framework – Radical Minimalism. The development of such a framework, with a strong basis on mathematics and physics, was born out of the conviction that, if language is really a natural object, there is no a priori reason to study it in isolation from other natural systems. On the other hand, this work represents a significant simplification of the theory of displacement and so-called «empty categories» within the latest development of Chomsky’s Strong Minimalist Hypothesis, applying Occam’s razor and fulfilling Lakatos’ requirements for scientific evolution. Radical Minimalism thus accounts not only for the phenomena orthodox minimalism has explanations for, but also for empirical problems that have not yet been taken into consideration.

Описание: The long rivalry between the Hudsons Bay Company and the North West Company for control of the fur trade in Canadas northwest came to an explosive climax on 19 June 1816, at the so-called Battle of Seven Oaks. Armed buffalo hunters -- Indigenous allies of the Nor-Westers -- confronted armed colonists of the HBCs Selkirk settlement near the forks of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers in todays Winnipeg. This "battle" would prove to be a formative event for Metis self-determination as well as laying down a legacy for settlers to come. This book offers a comprehensive retelling of one of Canadas most interesting historical periods, the Fur Trade Wars. As in the companion volume, "The Frog Lake Reader", Kostash incorporates period accounts and journals, histories, memoirs, songs and fictional retellings, from a wide range of sources, offering readers an engaging and exciting way back into still-controversial historical events.

Описание: "WHAT IS A WISH?" That is the question the boy must answer for himself as he and his wolf, Cloud, embark on a grand voyage to find the boy's father and return the wish that was stolen from him. The Cloud is a beautiful, and at times, heartbreaking journey of a reluctant hero forced to outwit a cast of colorful characters: a thieving girl, bizarre creatures from the Great Before, and the Mad King. It's a quest of self-discovery where the boy will learn that not all wishes can or should come true. Fans of Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet or the beloved children's fantasy The Never Ending Story will delight in The Cloud. A grand adventure story filled with unexpected allies and enemies alike, The Cloud beautifully examines themes of strength, bravery, love, and loss.

Описание: Explores culturally significant encounters between sensuality and artificiality in the poetry of Wilde, Symons, and Dowson. This book enquires into the problem of venerating artificiality and the inaccessibility of beauty associated with it whilst engaging in the sensuous, immediate experience as it is advocated by Walter Pater. It examines for the first time together poems by three protagonists of the 1890s: Oscar Wilde, Arthur Symons, and Ernest Dowson. It sees their poems as sites where the self sensually collides with or is immersed in their artifice. This is understood through the shift from Aestheticism to Decadence, which is marked by a greater emphasis on heterodox erotic experience. This study examines Wilde’s early poetry and its role in triggering this shift. It shows how the idea of an erotic encounter with artifice reaches its apex in Symons, and how in Dowson it ripens into vexed non-encounters. Key Features• The first monograph study to focus exclusively on Decadent poetry • Gives original attention to Oscar Wilde’s poetry which has been relatively neglected • Makes an explicit distinction between ‘Aestheticism’ and ‘Decadence’• Includes a Coda which considers how this Decadent poetics transmutes in Modernism. Kostas Boyiopoulos is Teaching Associate at the Department of English Studies, Durham University. His main research specialisms are fin-de-siecle literature and culture, Decadence and Aestheticism, and Anglo-Continental literary transactions. He is a co-editor of The Decadent Short Story: An Annotated Anthology (Edinburgh UP, 2014) and, with Mark Sandy, of the forthcoming essay collection Decadent Romanticism (Ashgate, 2015). He has published articles on late Victorian and Modernist topics.
