The Literature Collection - Newly added titles...

The Modernist World
Edited by Allana Lindgren and Stephen Ross

" The Modernist World is a remarkable and timely volume. Unique in its multidisciplinary and geographical range, this collection of over fifty essays offers a truly global account of modernist cultural production. More than that, it investigates the shifting signification of the term ‘modernism’ itself as it moves across continents and art forms. It will certainly become an indispensable resource for students and scholars working in the ‘new modernist studies’." - Anna Snaith, King’s College London, UK


The Routledge Companion to Literature and Human Rights
Edited by Sophia A. McClennen and Alexandra Schultheis Moore

This book provides a comprehensive, transnational and interdisciplinary map to the field, offering a broad overview of literature and human rights while providing innovative new readings on a range of topics. This volume moves beyond survey to offer innovative, insightful pieces that develop, critique and test boundaries. It expands the idea of human rights literature to include texts that have often been excluded such as legal texts, performances, visual culture, and human rights reports. Drawn from different global contexts, the essays offer an ideal introduction for those approaching the area for the first time, or looking for new insights and interdisciplinary perspectives.


The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction
Edited by Mark Bould, Andrew Butler, Adam Roberts and Sherryl Vint

" The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction will, one day soon, become an indispensable guide to sf's history, breadth, and depth for the genre's scholars, authors, and aficionados... The book most directly appeals to the genre's academic surveyors, but non-scholars will find it fascinating, intelligent, and debatable information in its pages. This publication's comprehensive, incisive, and useful entries make me wish the Companion a long and prosperous (shelf) life." – Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
