☯ Full Synopsis : "Medieval Women's Writing is a major new contribution to ourunderstanding of women's writing in England, 1100-1500. The mostcomprehensive account to date, it includes writings in Latin andFrench as well as English, and works for as well as by women. Mariede France, Clemence of Barking, Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe,and the Paston women are discussed alongside the Old English livesof women saints, The Life of Christina of Markyate, the St AlbansPsalter, and the legends of women saints by Osbern Bokenham. Medieval Women's Writing addresses these keyquestions: Who were the first women authors in the English canon? What do we mean by women's writing in the Middle Ages? What do we mean by authorship? How can studying medieval writing contribute to ourunderstanding of women's literary history? Diane Watt argues that female patrons, audiences, readers, andeven subjects contributed to the production of texts and theirmeanings, whether written by men or women. Only an understanding oftextual production as collaborative enables us to grasp fullywomen's engagement with literary culture. This radical rethinkingof early womens literary history has major implications for allscholars working on medieval literature, on ideas of authorship,and on women's writing in later periods. The book will becomestandard reading for all students of these debates."Article| Diane Watt| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Feminism has dramatically influenced the way literary texts are read, taught and evaluated. Feminist literary theory has deliberately transgressed traditional boundaries between literature, philosophy and the social sciences in order to understand how gender has been constructed and represented through language. This lively and thought-provoking Companion presents a range of approaches to the field. Some of the essays demonstrate feminist critical principles at work in analysing texts, while others take a step back to trace the development of a particular feminist literary method. The essays draw on a range of primary material from the medieval period to postmodernism and from several countries, disciplines and genres. Each essay suggests further reading to explore this field further. This is the most accessible guide available both for students of literature new to this developing field, and for students of gender studies and readers interested in the interactions of feminism, literary criticism and literature."Article| Ellen Rooney| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Cambridge Companion to Postcolonial Literary Studies, first published in 2004, offers a lucid introduction and overview of one of the most important strands in recent literary theory and cultural studies. The volume aims to introduce readers to key concepts, methods, theories, thematic concerns, and contemporary debates in the field. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, contributors explain the impact of history, sociology and philosophy on the study of postcolonial literatures and cultures. Topics examined include everything from anti-colonial nationalism and decolonisation to globalisation, migration flows, and the 'brain drain' which constitute the past and present of 'the postcolonial condition'. The volume also pays attention to the sociological and ideological conditions surrounding the emergence of postcolonial literary studies as an academic field in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Companion turns an authoritative, engaged and discriminating lens on postcolonial literary studies."Article| Neil Lazarus| Statement ..."

Thirteen period-based chapters are complemented by five thematic chapters and two chapters charting influences. This uniquely wide range facilitates both local and comparative study. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field and includes suggestions for further reading. A chronology illustrates how key texts relate to major conflicts. The Companion also explores the latest theoretical thinking on war representation to give access to this developing area and to suggest new directions for research. In addition to students of literature, the volume will interest those working in war studies, history, and cultural studies."Article| Kate McLoughlin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This Companion analyzes the representation of disability in literatures in English, including American and postcolonial writing, across all major time periods and through a variety of critical approaches. Through the alternative ideas of mind and embodiment generated by physiological and psychological impairments, an understanding of disability narrative changes the way we read literature. With contributions from major figures in literary disability studies, The Cambridge Companion to Literature and Disability covers a wide range of impairments, including cognitive difference, neurobehavioral conditions, and mental and chronic illnesses. This book shows how disability demands innovation in literary form and aesthetics, challenges the notion of a human 'norm' in the writing of character, and redraws the ways in which writing makes meaning of the broad spectrum of humanity. It will be a key resource for students and teachers of disability and literary studies."Article| Clare Barker| Statement ..."
