Ecology_of_Finnegans_Wake_RGB.jpgThe Ecology of Finnegans Wake
.
by Alison Lacivita
.
“The range of topics addressed in The Ecology of Finnegans Wake is expansive: polar exploration, meteorology, climatology, urban and suburban planning, water management, conservation biology. Lacivita takes great care to locate these discourses within the cultural and intellectual history of the time—among the many advantages of her genetic approach is its insistence on rigorous historicism—but it is no accident that so many of these topics are of crucial relevance today….It is not only among the strongest monographs of Joyce scholarship in recent memory, but it is also one of the most innovative works of contemporary ecocriticism.”—ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment

Black Art in Brazil

.
by Kimberly L. Cleveland
.
“A terrific book….Cleveland’s writing style, attention to the historical contexts of the themes she engages, and most centrally, her engagement with expressions of blackness, make this book a welcome contribution to the field.”—Estudios Interdisciplinarios de America Latina y el Caribe

Geopoetics of Modernism RGB.
The Geopoetics of Modernism 

.
by Rebecca Walsh
.

“Well-argued and crisply expounded, Walsh’s excellent book contributes generously not only to the ‘spatial turn’ in modernist studies but also to the burgeoning study of American modernism….A valuable contribution to the fundamental—but relatively unexplored—topic of geography and the production of space in American literary modernism.—Literary Geographies
