Milton, says Lieb, perceived himself as besieged by brutal forces constantly threatening his body and mind with dissolution. Lieb shows how Milton strove, in his poetry and polemical prose writings, to overcome these forces. Accompanying the preoccupation with wholeness that underlay Milton's sense of self, Lieb asserts, was a profound concern with sexuality.

Don Juan is one of the intriguing creations of Western literature. A legendary seducer of women, trickster and transgressor of sacred boundaries, he has been the object of countless revisions over the centuries. The twentieth-century has viewed the figure afresh through the prism of its own cultural terms of reference and social concerns. Using an interdisciplinary approach, 'Tales of Seduction' focuses on the intersections between myth, culture and intellectual inquiry. Sarah Wright takesDon Juan back to Spain, his birth-place, and examines the confluences of Spanish culture with aspects of Western intellectual history (medicine, psychoanalysis, linguistics), where she finds Don Juan continues to transgress the limits of culture from the early twentieth century to the present.

In this stimulating study Robert Con Davis and Ronald Schleifer ask important questions about the nature of literary study. What is literary criticism? How does it come about, change and interact with the culture within which it operates? In suggesting answers to these questions, Criticism and Culture provides an important new history and interpretation of literary criticism as an intellectual and cultural activity in the Twentieth Century.

Olad L Ajiboy Bamgboy

This publication brings together texts by Olad Ajiboy Bamgboy, an artist born in 1963 in Odu-Eku, Nigeria, and based since 1966 in London. Bamgboy's politically-driven work interweaves ethical and aesthetic concerns with remarkable care, dexterity and attention to process--and this goes for both his art and his critical writings, which bring a fresh, non-Western perspective to current debates about technology and culture. As Bamgboy puts it in his artist's statement: ''Central to my academic interests, teaching philosophy and artistic-critical framework is the need to make sense of culture and its complexities during the purported era of globalization. Equally necessary for my practice is a critical appraisal of technology as a culture that saturates our world, leading to its ascendance as a dominant discourse... I am interested in the possibilities for a critical art practice that is informed by the analysis of our cultural condition while avoiding the pitfalls of hypercynicism that can confine us within a framework that longs for an old reality.''
