    Armstrong (early French culture, U. of Manchester) and Kay (French, Princeton U.) report the findings of a four-and-a-half-year research project into the relationship between poetry and knowledge in France about 1270 to 1530. They look at situating knowledge from the perspectives of verse after prose, poetry and history, and poetry and thought. Turning then to transmitting and shaping knowledge, they consider knowing the world in verse encyclopedias and encyclopedic verse, knowledge and the practice of poetry, and poetry and the social construction of knowledge.

  • Subjectivity in Troubadour Poetry (Cambridge Studies in French)

    The medieval troubadours of the South of France profoundly influenced European literature for many centuries. This book is the first full-length study of the first-person subject position adopted by many of them in its relation to language and society. Using modern theoretical approaches, Sarah Kay discusses to what extent this first person is a "self" or "character," and how far it is self-determining. Kay draws on a wide range of troubadour texts, providing many close readings and translating all medieval quotations into English. Her book will be of interest both to scholars of medieval literature, and to anyone investigating subjectivity in lyric poetry.

  • Zizek: A Critical Introduction

    Zizek is hailed as the most significant interdisciplinary thinker of modern times. His work is a powerful, often explosive combination of Lacanian psychoanalysis and philosophy which tests key psychoanalytical concepts against the ideas of major European thinkers, especially Hegel. It has ignited enthusiasm and stimulated new approaches across a vast range of disciplines, and seems to be attracting an ever-growing readership. In part, this is because Zizek himself has a panoramic range of interests encompassing film studies, literature, cyber culture, ethics, theology and, above all, politics. It is also because he is a highly entertaining writer, having a flair for anecdote, a smutty sense of humour and the knack of capturing complex ideas in concrete form. Sarah Kay's book provides a lucid and comprehensive introduction to Zizek's work. His writings to date are presented and evaluated here for the first time, together with an outline of their development and explanations of his key premises, themes and terms. This book will be essential reading for students of cultural studies, literary studies, philosophy and social and political theory.
