An Anthology of Modern Italian Poetry

translated by Ned Condini, introduction by Dana Renga
Italian poetry of the last century is far from homogeneous: genres and movements have often been at odds with one another, engaging the economic, political, and social tensions of post-Unification Italy. The thirty-eight poets included in this anthology, some of whose poems are translated here for the first time, represent this literary diversity and competition: there are symbolists (Gabriele D'Annunzio),...

An Anthology of Modern Urdu Poetry

translated by M. A. Habib
Currently spoken by almost 250 million people in Pakistan and India and the second most widely spoken language in Britain, Urdu has one of the richest literatures of all south Asian languages.

An Anthology of Nineteenth-Century Women's Poetry from France

edited by Gretchen M. Schultz
Women poets in nineteenth-century France made important contributions to major stylistic innovations—from the birth of elegiac Romanticism to the inauguration of free verse—and many were prominent in their lifetime, yet only a few are known today, and nearly all have been unavailable in English translation. Of the fourteen poets of this anthology some were wealthy, others struggled in poverty; some were...

An Anthology of Nineteenth-Century Women's Poetry from Spain

translated by Anna-Marie Aldaz, W. Robert Walker
"The woman poet...must sing, just as birds fly and rivers flow," wrote Carolina Coronado in 1846. In Spain of that time, a group of women had begun to publish poetry. Their verse—Romantic, predominantly lyric, and often linked to liberal reform—was novel and controversial, because few women had ventured into print. The poets collected in this anthology asserted in different ways their...

An Anthology of Spanish American Modernismo

translated by Kelly Washbourne, Sergio Waisman
The poetic movement that was Spanish American modernismo ran from the early 1880s to 1916: it expressed the desire both to join universal literature—aesthetic modernity—and to break colonial ties with Spanish belles lettres. The new translations in this bilingual anthology, many of them first translations, present eighteen modernista poets from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and...

Approaches to Teaching Austen's Mansfield Park

edited by Marcia McClintock Folsom, John Wiltshire
There were no reviews of Mansfield Park when it first appeared in 1814. Austen's reputation grew in the Victorian period, but it was only in the twentieth century that formal and sustained criticism began of this work, which addresses the controversies of its time more than Austen's earlier novels did. Lionel Trilling praised Mansfield Park for exploring the difficult moral life of modernity; Edward Said brought postcolonial theory to the study...

Approaches to Teaching Austen's Persuasion

edited by Marcia McClintock Folsom, John Wiltshire
Jane Austen is a favorite with many students, whether they've read her novels or viewed popular film adaptations. But Persuasion, completed at the end of her life, can be challenging for students to approach. They are surprised to meet a heroine so subdued and self-sacrificing, and the novel's setting during the Napoleonic wars may be unfamiliar. This volume provides teachers with avenues to explore the depths and richness of the novel with both...
