Whitman's Ecstatic Unionrereads the first three editions of Leaves of Grass within the context of a nineteenth-century antebellum evangelical culture of conversion. Though Whitman intended to write a new American Bible and "inaugurate a religion," contemporary scholarship has often ignored the religious element in his poetry. But just as evangelists sought the redemption of America through the reconstruction of individual subjects in conversion, Leaves of Grass sought to redeem the nation by inducing ecstatic, regenerating experiences in its readers. Whitman's Ecstatic Union explores the ecstasy of conversion as a liminal moment outside of language and culture, and-employing Althusser's model of ideological interpellation and anthropological models of religious ritual-shows how evangelicalism remade subjects by inducing ecstasy and instilling new narratives of identity. The book analyzes Whitman's historical relationship to preaching and conversion and reads the 1855 "Song of Myself" as a conversion narrative. A focus on the 1856 edition and the poem "To You" explores the sacred seductions at the heart of Whitman's poetry. "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" and Whitman's vision of a world of perfect miracles are then connected to a conception of universal affection, uncannily paralleling Jonathan Edward's ideal of "love to being in general." A conclusion looks toward the transformations of Whitman's vision in the 1860 edition.

Irish detective fiction has enjoyed an international readership for over a decade, appearing on best-seller lists across the globe. But its breadth of hard-boiled and amateur detectives, historical fiction, and police procedurals has remained somewhat marginalized in academic scholarship. Exploring the work of some of its leading writers—including Peter Tremayne, John Connolly, Declan Hughes, Ken Bruen, Brian McGilloway, Stuart Neville, Tana French, Jane Casey, and Benjamin Black—The Contemporary Irish Detective Novel opens new ground in Irish literary criticism and genre studies. It considers the detective genre’s position in Irish Studies and the standing of Irish authors within the detective novel tradition. Contributors: Carol Baraniuk, Nancy Marck Cantwell, Brian Cliff, Fiona Coffey, Charlotte J. Headrick, Andrew Kincaid, Audrey McNamara, and Shirley Peterson.

Endlich ist es soweit: Pippa Goldschmidts grandioses Romandebüt erscheint in der deutschen Übersetzung von Zoë Beck. Jeanette, frisch promovierte Astronomin, macht an einem Teleskop in den chilenischen Anden eine sensationelle Entdeckung, die diversen Gesetzen ihrer Wissenschaft diametral entgegensteht. Jeanette weiß nicht, ob sie ihre Ergebnisse veröffentlichen soll oder ob sie damit ihrer Karriere schadet. Schließlich tut sie es und hat die gesamte astronomische Welt gegen sich aufgebracht. Sie stürzt in einen Strudel, der schon bald ihr Privatleben mit sich reißt und sie zwischen den Mühlsteinen der Vergangenheit und der Gegenwart zu zermahlen droht. Bilder ihrer Schwester, die unter rätselhaften Umständen in ihrer Kindheit starb, spannen sich vor die Wirklichkeit. Sie sucht den Himmel und die Erde nach ihr ab und verliert sich dabei selbst. Pippa Goldschmidts erster Roman ist zugleich tragische Kindheitsgeschichte und Wissenschaftssatire: Virtuos wechselt er die Erzählebenen, die sich schließlich mehr und mehr vermischen. „Die feinfühlige und faszinierende Studie eines Lebens, in dem Intellekt und fremde mikroskopische und kosmische Kraftfelder aufeinander einwirken.“ Stephen Fry
