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 book analyzes the relationship between women's experience and the social institutions and cultural forms in which that experience is publicly represented. Challenging the assumption that middle-class women were confined solely to domesticity, Corbett examines the rhetorical strategies of self-representation by women who participated in public life. She discusses autobiographies by religious women writers, secular writers, Victorian actresses, and suffragettes, engaging some of the central issues in feminist criticism and politics while opening to view a broad range of self-representation that has been unduly slighted in feminist historical, cultural, and literary analysis.
