In addition to being a major twentieth-century author, John Dos Passos painted, principally in watercolor, throughout his career. This book demonstrates that Dos Passos’s lifelong commitment to and practice of pictorial representation are vital aspects of his career because they confirm and manifest in both verbal and visual stylistics such modernist tendencies as Fauvism, Cubism, and Expressionism. This book reproduces 68 examples of Dos Passos’s art, almost all in full color.
The romances of Herman Melville, author of Moby-Dick and Billy Budd, Sailor, are usually examined from some setting almost exclusively American. Yet, a series of expanding literary and technological networks was active that made his writing part of a global complex.

The discovery of Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poetry in the twentieth century was a revelation for postwar poets, who discovered in both Hopkins’s style and subject matter a voice seemingly bottled for their own time. This influence has not faded in the twenty-first century. The poets collected in The World Is Charged: Poetic Engagements with Gerard Manley Hopkins demonstrate together the centrality of his influence in contemporary poetry.
"The great poems are poems of retrieval or thanks or both, and Ronald Moran's plain-spoken, affecting lyrics are squarely in this last category. He searches for and finds the people, now gone, who made his life what it is: his parents, the girls he dated, his beloved wife Jane. In doing so, this grateful, gifted poet teaches us how to burrow into and recognize the riches in our own lives." —David Kirby

The Reimagining of Place in English Modernism analyses key texts by D. H. Lawrence, John Cowper Powys, Mary Butts, and Virginia Woolf, charting their respective attempts to forge new identities, perspectives, and literary approaches that reconcile tradition and modernity, belonging and exploration, the rural and the metropolitan.
Love and Sex in D. H. Lawrence describes how the tortuous developments in his relationship with Jessie Chambers are reflected in his writing, his struggle against his undoubted leanings toward homosexuality, the war he declared on the concept of romantic love, and how, after insisting on the idea of male dominance, he returned (although only in part) to a more humane vision of relations between the sexes in the various versions of Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

"Forget Duck Dynasty and True Detective. Read Bayou Coeur and enter a world as different from the homogeneity of American life as étouffée is different from Campbell's soup. Gray leads us through this unique culture like a skilled cajun accordionist laying down his chords and pursuing a melodic line that evokes nostalgia and mystery and resolves into surprising harmonies." —Bill Dowie, author of critical biographies of Peter Matthiessen and James Salter in the Twayne U.S. Authors Series
