              Elizabeth Barrett Browning

              Elizabeth Barrett Browning (Hardback)

              This volume will provide students with an introduction to the poetry and life of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, one of the most popular poets of her day in Britain and America and who has become one of the great icons of Victorianism for the modern age. The authors present a biograp...hical survey, study of her poetry, its critical reception and an assessment of her influence on later poets. This book also examines the complex 'myths' which are associated with Elizabeth Barrett Browning and offers re-readings of her life and work, particularly in dispelling the myth of the ailing invalid poet-recluse and instead showing her to be one of the great intellectuals of her day, immersed in European history and politics from a very early age. The book situates Browning within broader historical, political and cultural contexts than have yet been examined enabling a better understanding of her poetry and paints the portrait of a fine and innovative poet, an intellectual and an astute political thinker.

              Sex, Time and Place extensively widens the scope of what we might mean by 'queer London studies'. Incorporating multidisciplinary perspectives - including social history, cultural geography, visual culture, literary representation, ethnography and social studies - this collection... asks new questions, widens debates and opens new subject terrain. Featuring essays from an international range of established scholars and emergent voices, the collection is a timely contribution to this growing field. Its essays cover topics such as activist and radical communities and groups, AIDS and the city, art and literature, digital archives and technology, drag and performativity, lesbian Londons, notions of bohemianism and deviancy, sex reform and research and queer Black history. Going further than the existing literature on Queer London which focuses principally on the experiences of white gay men in a limited time frame, Sex, Time and Place reflects the current state of this growing and important field of study. It will be of great value to scholars, students and general readers who have an interest in queer history, London studies, cultural geography, visual cultures and literary criticism.

              Yeasts and filamentous fungi need to cope with stress, whether growing in the laboratory or in the natural environment, whether victims or offenders in interactions with other organisms. This work discusses these considerations and covers stress in the broad sense, within the con...text of mycology.

              Sarah Madsen is a modern young rabbit with a cozy urban life. A yuppie, perhaps, though she'd disagree with the label. After all, yuppies don't hang with eccentric artists in beat-down studios, much less date them. And they don't get pushed out of their apartment by profit-huntin...g developers, forced to pick between an impossible market and an unsustainable rent. As she hunts for a new place to live, she learns how her comfortable lifestyle is seen by those around her. Some are sympathetic and kind, some cold and indifferent, some jealous and hostile. None can relieve her frustration from knowing that her easy life is slowly slipping out of her control. She'll take control anywhere she can find it, but not everyone appreciates her attempts to help. Not even herself. A story of class and success in the millennial age, The Latte Segment explores how well we can trust others, and ourselves, to do the right things in our lives - or, to do anything about them at all.

              Clearly suggesting the influence of Browning, Emily Bronte and Christina Rossetti, and paralleling the techniques of more modern poets such as Hardy, Lawrence and Charlotte Mew, the poems of Mary Coleridge have much to tell us about the shifting nature of poetry and poetics in th...e Victorian fin-de-siecle and early 20th century.
