With a lovely formal touch—meter, rhyme and free-verse abound—Ramsey’s new poems remind us just how many component timbres and modes are often needed to make a single authentic sound." —Nathaniel Perry

Robert Penn Warren: Genius Loves Company, edited by Mark Royden Winchell
Publication Date: Thursday November 15, 2007

bro017At least since the dawn of the Romantic era, it has been assumed that the poet lives a lonely life, isolated in his garret. Nevertheless, writers are not always hermits and misanthropes. As human beings, they crave the company of other human beings; as artists they need the stimulation of other artists. This book brings to light Warren's most important literary associations during his long and active life.


Woolfian Boundaries, edited by Anna Burrells, Steve Ellis, Deborah Parsons, and Kathryn Simpson
Publication Date: Thursday November 01, 2007

Woolfian-Boundaries-scannedWoolfian Boundaries explores Woolf's work from perspectives "beyond the boundary" of her own positions and attitudes, taking her coolness toward the provinces and "prejudice" against the regional novel (Letters 6: 381) as the starting point for considering her writing in the light of its own "limits," self-declared and otherwise. Chapter topics range from Woolf's connections with the "Birmingham School" of novelists in the 1930s to her interests in environmentalism, portraiture, photography, and the media, and her endlessly fascinating relationship with the writings of her contemporaries and predecessors.

The Problem in the Middle: Liminal Space and the Court Masque, by Gregory A. Wilson
Publication Date: Sunday April 15, 2007

problem-middle-300x439Ben Jonson and Inigo Jones enjoyed one of the most successful theatrical collaborations of Renaissance England with their spectacular court masques. But their relationship soured over a dispute as to what was most important in the masque: the poetry of the former or the set and costume design of the latter. This book attempts to resolve the debate using a theoretical term developed by Victor Turner: liminality, a condition or status between two conditions or statuses. Dr. Gregory Wilson argues that the masque is in a perpetual state of liminality, existing in the margin between performance and an observing audience. The masque is more than historically interesting; it negotiates the space between possibility and reality. This book searches for that intervening ground and the resolution of the "problem in the middle."

Women & Clemson University: Excellence—Yesterday and Today, by Jerome V. Reel, Jr. and Alma Bennett
Publication Date: Wednesday November 15, 2006

Women-&-Clemson-University-scanned"The admission of women into the Clemson family is one of this University's great success stories. Clemson women have made Clemson strong. Without all that our women faculty, staff, students and graduates have accomplished and contributed, we can only speculate what Clemson would be today. Certainly every major transition has made Clemson a better, stronger institution, moving it from an all-male, all-white military school to a civilian, coeducational, desegregated research university that we can proudly say is among the nation's most outstanding public universities." —James F. Barker, President Emeritus, Clemson University

Growing Up Cartoonist in the Baby-Boom South: A Memoir and Cartoon Retrospective, by Kate Salley Palmer
Publication Date: Saturday April 15, 2006

Growing-Up-Cartoonist-scanned"Kate Palmer's political cartoons are great—that is, if they are about someone else. At any rate, they justify a look into her life. Where did this free and caring and funny spirit come from? What was her family like? Were they also contrarians? . . . Kate Palmer is . . . what we in the South call 'a character.' . . . She calls herself a satirist, which she defines as a 'professional smartass.' Most of her subject characters would agree with that definition." —Richard W. Riley, former governor of South Carolina, from the Foreword

Publication Date: Monday November 15, 2004

Using the measures outlined in this booklet as a "system" is easy.

Saying These Things, by Ronald Moran
Publication Date: Monday November 15, 2004

scanned_saying these things"Ron Moran's poetry immediately leaps from the page to the feet and ankles of the reader's experience. You're on the sidewalk with his characters, you're a flash dancer in his every scenario. He stole one of your monologues right out of your own phone conversation—how does he do that? Across the board, and no matter the particular style of the Moran day, his poems are the view across the street, the dinner beside you at the restaurant, and they are, if you were a poet, too, the outrageously creative language experience you wish you'd have in you." —Jennifer Bosveld, Pudding House Publications


Virginia Woolf’s Illnesses, by Douglass W. Orr, M.D.
Publication Date: Thursday April 15, 2004

bro016This book discusses a number of diagnostic possibilities, granting that its author has not examined his 'patient.' He ventures to do so because diagnoses in psychiatry particularly are based upon careful history-taking, and except for infancy, we have a good deal of Virginia's life history both in her own words and in the reminiscences of others.

Literature and Digital Technologies: W. B. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, Mary Shelley, and William Gass, edited by Karen Schiff
Publication Date: Tuesday April 15, 2003

scanned_literature and digital technologiesEssays collected in Literature and Digital Technologies grow out of the intersection of electronic technologies and literary study. In widening the scope of "digital technologies" so far as to include the production of literary texts through different kinds of digital machines, we have arrived at the heart of the enterprise that has driven this entire endeavor: the use of technologies to promote the circulation and reading of works of literature. The book examines the effect of new technologies on reading, writing, and the study of literature.

Melville’s Use of “The Rebellion Record” in his Poetry, by Frank Day
Publication Date: Monday April 15, 2002

scanned_MelvilleMelville drew on the Rebellion Record for twenty of the seventy-two poems in Battle-Pieces and for two others included in his later volume of poems. His indebtedness to the Record, moreover, is greater in one sense than is suggested by the total of twenty poems out of seventy-two, for most of the fifty-two poems not indebted to the Record are largely philosophical, eulogistic, or inscriptive. Of the lines actually describing war events and giving details of battles, an estimated eighty percent have probable sources in the Record. This book explores the implications of the Record for Melville's poetry.


New Technology and the Future of Publishing, edited by Catherine E. Paul
Publication Date: Thursday November 15, 2001

new-tech-300x455This anthology constitutes the proceedings of a themed conference, the Colloquium on New Technology and the Future of Publishing (2001). In New Technology and the Future of Publishing (2002), contributors discuss the the current "crisis in scholarly communication" when new media are involved—as well as the many opportunities that have arisen alongside that crisis. Some essays highlight the innovative teaching strategies and interdisciplinary scholarship that new technologies have made possible. Others address some of the ways in which academic presses can now go beyond traditional publication programs, avoiding current pitfalls of print journals and books without incurring undue extra costs or sacrificing editorial standards or intellectual property rights. Still other essays examine the changes new technology has wrought on libraries. These issues and more are covered in this anthology.
