146 GLASS, LOREN. After The Program Era: The Past, Present, And Future Of Creative Writing In The University.
University of Iowa Press, Iowa City: 2017. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The publication in 2009 of Mark McGurl's The Program Era provoked a sea change in the study of postwar literature. Even though almost every English department in the United States housed some version of a creative writing program by the time of its publication, literary scholars had not previously considered that this institutional phenomenon was historically significant. McGurl's groundbreaking book effectively established that "the rise of the creative writing program stands as the most important event in postwar American literary history," forcing us to revise our understanding not only of the relationship between higher education and literary production, but also of the periodizing terminology we had previously used to structure our understanding of twentieth-century literature. After the Program Era explores the consequences and implications, as well as the lacunae and liabilities, of McGurl's foundational intervention. McGurl focuses only on American fiction and the traditional MFA program, and this collection aims to expand and examine its insights in terms of other genres and sites. Postwar poetry, in particular, has until now been neglected as a product of the Program Era, even though it is, arguably, a "purer" example, since poets now depend almost entirely on the patronage of the university. Similarly, this collection looks beyond the traditional MFA writing program to explore the prehistory of writing programs in American universities, as well as alternatives to the traditionally structured program that have emerged along the way. Taken together, the essays in After the Program Era seek to answer and explore many of these questions and continue the conversations McGurl only began. Loren Glass is a professor of English at the University of Iowa, with a joint appointment at the Center for the Book. He is the author of Authors Inc.: Literary Celebrity in the Modern United States, 1880-1980 and Counter-Culture Colophon: Grove Press, the Evergreen Review, and the Incorporation of the Avant-Garde. He lives in Iowa City, Iowa. "Building on the achievement of Mark McGurl's The Program Era, After the Program Era is an outstanding collection of essays that stages a vital and ongoing debate about postwar American literature and the university."—Evan Brier, author, A Novel Marketplace: Mass Culture, the Book Trade, and Postwar American Fiction "Mark McGurl's The Program Era made clear that it is impossible to understand postwar literature without attending to institutions. Glass et al. take this insight in important new directions, discussing such disparate phenomena as the early twentieth-century precursors of the writing program, Cold War diplomacy, and contemporary poetry readings. The case studies are compelling, and the volume as a whole does the vital service of reminding us how much work remains to be done."—Andrew Hoberek, University of Missouri

149 GOLDHILL, SIMON . Freud's Couch, Scott's Buttocks, BrontĎ's Grave.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The Victorian era was the high point of literary tourism. Writers such as Charles Dickens, George Eliot, and Sir Walter Scott became celebrities, and readers trekked far and wide for a glimpse of the places where their heroes wrote and thought, walked and talked. Even Shakespeare was roped in, as Victorian entrepreneurs transformed quiet Stratford-upon-Avon into a combination shrine and tourist trap. Stratford continues to lure the tourists today, as do many other sites of literary pilgrimage throughout Britain. And our modern age could have no better guide to such places than Simon Goldhill. In Freud's Couch, Scott's Buttocks, BrontĎ's Grave, Goldhill makes a pilgrimage to Sir Walter Scott's baronial mansion, Wordsworth's cottage in the Lake District, the Bront Ď parsonage, Shakespeare's birthplace, and Freud's office in Hampstead. Traveling, as much as possible, by methods available to Victorians—and gamely negotiating distractions ranging from broken bicycles to a flock of giggling Japanese schoolgirls—he tries to discern what our forebears were looking for at these sites, as well as what they have to say to the modern mind. What does it matter that Emily BrontĎ's hidden passions burned in this specific room? What does it mean, especially now that his fame has faded, that Scott self-consciously built an extravagant castle suitable for Ivanhoe—and star-struck tourists visited it while he was still living there? Or that Freud's meticulous recreation of his Vienna office is now a meticulously preserved museum of itself? Or that Shakespeare's birthplace features student actors declaiming snippets of his plays . . . in the garden of a house where he almost certainly never wrote a single line? Goldhill brings to these inquiries his trademark wry humor and a lifetime's engagement with literature. The result is a travel book like no other, a reminder that even today, the writing life still has the power to inspire. Simon Goldhill is professor in Greek literature and culture at the University of Cambridge. He is the author of many books, including Love, Sex & Tragedy, also published by the University of Chicago Press. "Unfailingly enjoyable. . . . Goldhill's book is an evocative excursion, a joy to read and full of interest." - The Tablet: The International Cattholic Weekly "Wryly funny, deeply thoughtful musings on literary pilgrimage--why readers visit writers' houses, and what, if anything, we gain by it. . . . Part travel memoir, part literary inquiry, with a large dose of history and frequent dashes of dry humor, this book will appeal to bookworms, Anglophiles and anyone who loves to visit historical sites but rolls their eyes at the overpriced rubbish in the gift shop." - Shelf Awareness for Readers

156 GREENE, ELLEN. The Erotics Of Domination: Male Desire And The Mistress In Latin Love Poetry.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: . First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In recent decades, scholars in the field of classics have paid increasing attention to gender and sexual politics in Latin elegiac poetry. In The Erotics of Domination, Ellen Greene re-examines long-held scholarly attitudes concerning the representation of male sexual desire and female subjection in the Latin love poetry of Catullus, Propertius, and Ovid. Analyzing first-person poetic personae that critics have often romanticized, Greene finds that whereas the Catullan lover appears to struggle against his own "feminization," the Roman elegiac poets—particularly Propertius and Ovid—proclaim a radically unconventional philosophy in their seemingly deliberate inversion of conventional sex roles. Through the servitude of the male lover to his mistress, the woman achieves, at least nominally, complete domination and control over him.
