  • Shakespeare's Folly

    Philosophy, Humanism, Critical Theory

    By Sam Hall

    This study contends that folly is of fundamental importance to the implicit philosophical vision of Shakespeare’s drama.

  • George Eliot and Schiller

    Intertextuality and cross-cultural discourse

    Writing and Sexuality in Hawthorne's Fiction

    By Allan Gardner Lloyd Smith

    First published in 1984, this book offers a unique interpretation of Hawthorne’s work, making use of perspectives opened up by Derrida in his work on Rousseau. It offers a psycho-biography of the author as discoverable in the texts and avoids a simplistic Freudian analysis. In doing so, it…

  • Dostoevsky 1821-1881

    By E.H. Carr

    The bare events of Dostoevsky’s life – his father murdered by peasants, his own ordeal before a firing squad, then exile in Siberia, his epilepsy, gambling, poverty and debts – go far to account for his strange intensity of vision. This biography, first published in 1931, traces his wayward…

  • The Political and Social Thought of F.M. Dostoevsky

    By Stephen Kirby Carter

    This study concentrates on The Devils, but also places this novel in the total context of Dostoevsky’s work. Also considered is the life and work of T.N. Granovsky, who is satirised along with Turgenev in the novel, and thus offers a useful basis on which to delineate the contours of Dostoevsky’s…
