              Making use of insights from Gramsci, Walter Benjamin, and Marcuse, among others, Mark Sabine argues that Saramago sought to engage his reader with a skeptical but vibrant utopianism: teaching us to abandon absolutes and embrace error as inevitable, and, indeed, even necessary.

              Perpetual Motion aims to offer new sightlines between surrealism, the age of Andr Breton (1896-1966), and the postmodernism of such poets as Pierre Alferi (1963-). For Sheringham, a sense of motion and plasticity flows through French poetry, and reveals itself through themes of r...hythm, inspiration, sensation, love, colour and the city.

              Carmen Laforet (Barcelona 1921 - Madrid 2004) was one of Spain's most significant writers of the post-civil war period, but a primarily historical approach to reading her work may have distorted our understanding. In this book, Wells argues that the five major novels need to be r...ead as a collective meditation on the subject of relief.
