With this volume, Francis Tenny makes Gloom in the Country available in English for the first time, along with its sequel, Gloom in the City, and the compelling companion piece Okinu and Her Brother. Together these stories demonstrate the range of Sato's style and weave together a number of his themes: the contrast between eternal nature and the finite person, the quest for aesthetic and spiritual balance, the lyric articulation of the interior life, the dislocation of the individual from nature and society. With sinuous linguistic grace, Sato's delineation of the modern sensibility draws from great works of Western literature and the classical traditions of Japan and China. This trilogy thus forms a window into the heart of the Japanese individual, torn between dream and reality, between tradition and the modern world, between introspection and action. For its elegant depiction of the modern human condition, The Sick Rose will appeal to sensitive readers everywhere.

“The Sick Rose,” published in Samcheonli munhak (Three Thousand Li of Literature) in 1938, is the first of two short stories that Lee Hyoseok names using the title of a poem in English. This one, of course, is named after a poem by William Blake. The other is “Leaves of Grass” titled after Walt Whitman’s seminal collection. Both short stories borrow themes from the poems they are named after. In the case of “The Sick Rose” the theme is prostitution and the venereal disease that can accompany the practice. Typical of Lee’s later literature, this story uses the theme of sex as a means to critique what he saw as a hypocritical sense of morality in Korean society.

Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Spanish by Arturo Mantec�n. "This is the final collection of Spanish poet Leopoldo Mar�a Panero (1948-2014): the 'incomplete fish that he carries in his hand', a coda to a body of work that took up where Nietzsche, Baudelaire and Mallarm� put down their pens. Panero's experiment is to relentlessly perform the authority of discourse: 'I will say the same thing in another way' his challenge to the philosophers of our time, revealing Panero as the most radical thinker of his generation. The self-consuming paradox of discourse, trapped in all its wild beauty within 'the systemizing blue of the page', is here ably translated by Arturo Mantec�n." —Andrew Faraday Giles Arturo Mantec�n is a poet who has translated the work of Leopoldo Mar�a Panero in two previous volumes: My Naked Brain (Swan Scythe Press) and LIKE AN EYE IN THE HAND OF A BEGGAR (Editions Michel Eyquem, 2013). He is currently translating the work of the Spanish writer Francisco Ferrer Ler�n.

In this innovative collection, an international group of scholars come together to discuss literary metaphors and cognitive metaphor theory. The volume's goals are three-fold. The first aim of the book is to present some recent approaches to metaphor which have no immediate connection with cognitive metaphor theory and have developed independently of it. While the cognitive approach has become the leading paradigm in the English speaking world, elsewhere (in Europe) rhetorical, semantic, and logical models have remained in use and continue to be elaborated. These models have so far had little international exposure. Their inclusion in this study is meant to provide a balance to the cognitive paradigm and to open up a possible discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of cognitive metaphor theory for the analysis of literary texts. The second aim of the collection is to illustrate a range of successful applications of the new cognitive models to literary texts. And, the third aim of the study is to provide an assessment of cognitive metaphor theory from a literary point of view.

This anthology of essays charts the work of William Blake - combining traditional and current historicist methods with a plurality of other approaches. While many essays here recuperate a radical Blake opposed to imperialism, slavery, and patriarchy, differences emerge over the nature of Blake's radicalism and his stance on revolution, violence, and democratic pluralism. Contributors may champion a Blake critical of patriarchal discourse and practice, but they remain cautious about Blake's "homocentric" solutions. In the "Blake and women" section, authors seek to reorient discussions by connecting Blake to historical issues concerning women, particularly domestic ideology and the idealised female of the conduct books.
