Overheard Voices examines poetic address and in particular apostrophe (the address of absent or inanimate others) in the work of four post-World War II American poets, with a focus on loss, desire, figuration, audience, and subjectivity. By approaching these crucial issues from an unexpected angle--through a study of the seldom-examined lyric "you"--Overheard Voices offers new insight into both contemporary lyric and the lyric genre more generally. The book offers detailed readings of Sylvia Plath, James Merrill, Louise Glück, and Frank Bidart.

Ob Wochenendausflug, Kuraufenthalt oder Bildungstour, ob Brocken, Baden-Baden, Rom oder New York - Reisen entwickelte sich im Laufe des langen 19. Jahrhunderts zu einer bevorzugten Freizeitbeschäftigung der städtischen Oberschichten. Anhand von meist unveröffentlichten Reiseaufzeichnungen aus Hamburger, Basler und Londoner Familienarchiven zeigt die Studie, wie das Reisen seine Bedeutung als Gegenwelt zum Alltag erlangte, welche Rolle die Kommunikation auf und über Reisen spielte und inwiefern Reisen als Ausdruck einer spezifisch bürgerlichen Identität verstanden werden kann.

This study is designed as a contribution to gender studies; it examines the (various different) ways in which gender roles are constructed in 18th century educational manuals and novels in English, focussing mainly on the contributions of female authors to bourgeois Enlightenment debate on the socialization of women and the role of women in society. Another concern of the book is to define the position of well-known women authors like Jane Austen or Fanny Burney within the literary landscape of the age, the tendency in the past having been to study them very much in isolation from it. For this purpose the present study marks off a sub-genre termed here weiblicher Erziehungsroman (educational novels by women) and examines the intertextual relations obtaining within that sub-genre. In so doing it seeks not least to rescue a number of less well-known women authors from the scholarly oblivion to which they have been relegated in literary studies.
