Literary Studies

OUR BOOKS,  YOUR CLASSROOM
Wide-range studies (done by individuals or a collective) that shed light on moments, periods, or centuries in the development of literature, focusing on an entire national or transnational corpus. We also encourage critical studies of genres and subgenres, especially inasmuch as they identify new trends or reveal less-known characteristics of traditional forms.

Dracula Invades England














featured title

Dragos Moraru   160 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Paperback Release Date:08 Dec 2015 ISBN:9780993995156   A (late) postmodernist phenomenon, histopias are fictional retellings of the history of the world. They often use utopian/dystopian scenarios, which are necessary as “world-historical effect”: the end and/or rebirth of the world offer the possibility of narrating the fate of all mankind. Whether novelists or playwrights, histopian authors use a structural pattern that mirrors the way in which the world tells itself: both continuous and discontinuous, in turn linear, cyclical, or radial.
