This introductory book takes the reader through literary history from the Renaissance to Postmodernism, and considers individual texts as paradigms which can both reflect and unsettle their broader linguistic and cultural contexts. Richard Bradford provides detailed readings of individual texts which emphasize their relation to literary history and broader socio-cultural contexts, and which take into account developments in structuralism and postmodernism. Texts include poems by Donne, Herbert, Marvell, Milton, Pope, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, Keats, Hopkins, Browning, Pound, Eliot, Carlos Williams, Auden, Larkin and Geoffrey Hill.

Out Here originates from a series of queer studies conferences which took place in Poland between 2002 and 2004, and includes essays, an autobiographical account, and two short stories. Their authors are of eight nationalities: Canadian, Belgian, Flemish, German, Hungarian, Polish, Spanish, Ukrainian, and U.S. American. The academic papers represent a wide range of disciplines: philosophy, literature, ethnography, cultural and gender studies. Some combine theoretical insights and critical analysis with suggestions for activism. The short stories explore the formative moments of a queer adolescence in Anglophone Canada. The eclecticism of Out Here reflects the cauldron-like mix of concerns taken up locally in places considered peripheral in relation to the centers of queer theory in British and American academia. It is out here (or back then), often within the context of rampant homophobia, that queer methodologies prove especially productive. Out here, queer theory is alive and kicking. Whether the authors write about sexual awakenings in Sri Lanka and Canada, or heterosexism in contemporary Ukraine, Hungary, Belgian parks, and 1970s Britain, or racial exclusion in American gay bars, or the veiled homophobia of Polish textbooks, what connects them is the commitment to questioning the limitations placed on queer desire.

English Poetry and Old Norse Myth: A History traces the influence of Old Norse myth on poetry in English from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day. Many major poets were inspired by this mythic material. Some, such as the Anglo-Saxon poet of Beowulf, or Walter Scott, used mythic references to set the scene of a distant but dramatic Northern past. Others, such as Thomas Gray, or Matthew Arnold, adapted actual Old Norse mythological texts in wayswhich both responded to and formed the literary tastes of their own times. Still others, such as William Blake, or David Jones, reworked central mythic elements -- valkyries weaving the fates of men, or the great WorldTree on which Odin sacrificed himself -- into their own poetry. This book shows how both major and minor poets in English have reflected changing attitudes towards the pagan North.
