Description

Established in 1949, the University of Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, and a scholarly publisher of distinguished books in a number of academic disciplines. The Press publishes approximately fifty books annually and maintains a robust backlist in print. Located on the University of Notre Dame campus, the Press is a publishing partner with numerous university departments, programs, centers, and institutes. Through these collaborations, the Press extends the reach and reputation of the University while fulfilling its mission to advance intellectual exploration and knowledge. The Press’s publications are overseen by an editorial board comprised of scholars from a variety of university departments. New titles are approved by the board after a rigorous process of peer review.

The Notre Dame Press Collection is a collaboration with the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries to make UNDP backlist titles available through CurateND, the Libraries’ institutional repository. The Notre Dame Press Collection will allow members of the broader Notre Dame community to have free access to all the books available in the collection. The collection will continue to expand as more backlist titles are digitized and through the publication of new books. This collection demonstrates the mutual commitment of UNDP and the Hesburgh Libraries to disseminate innovative, influential, and enduring scholarship to the broadest possible audience.

  • Author(s):
    Emma Lipton
    Subject(s):
    Social values in literature, English literature--Middle English, 1100-1500--History and criticism, Literature and society--England--History--To 1500, Marriage--Religious aspects, Authority in literature, Social groups in literature, Marriage--Political aspects--England--History--To 1500, Marriage in literature
    Abstract:

    Affections of the Mind focuses on marriage as a fluid and contested category rather than one with a fixed meaning, and argues that the late medieval literature of sacramental marriage subverted aristocratic and clerical traditions of love and marriage in order to promote the values of the lay middle strata of society. This book will be of value to a broad range of scholars in medieval studies.

    Joan Frank
    Subject(s):
    Authors, American--20th century--Biography
    Abstract:

    Part memoir, part handbook, part survey of the contemporary literary scene, Joan Frank’s Because You Have To: A Writing Life is a collection of essays that, taken together, provide a walking tour of the writing life. Frank’s aim is to form a coherent vision, one that may provide some communion about realities of the writer’s vocation that have struck her as rarely revealed. Frank offers what she has learned as a writer not only to other writers, but to those to whom good writing…

    Subject(s):
    English newspapers--Great Britain--History, Sensationalism in journalism--Great Britain, Home rule--Ireland, Sex scandals--Great Britain--History, Joyce, James, 1882-1941--Political and social views
    Abstract:

    In Scandal Work: James Joyce, the New Journalism, and the Home Rule Newspaper Wars, Margot Gayle Backus charts the rise of the newspaper sex scandal across the fin de siècle British archipelago and explores its impact on the work of James Joyce, a towering figure of literary modernism.

    Based largely on archival research, the first three chapters trace the legal, social, and economic forces that fueled an upsurge in sex scandal over the course of the Irish Home Rule debates during James Joy…

    Poetics--Study and teaching, Versification, French language--Versification, English language--Versification, English poetry--Study and teaching, Latin language--Versification
    Abstract:

    Students of English literature now rarely receive instruction in versification (theory or practice) at either the undergraduate or the graduate level.* The Long and the Short of It* is a clear, straightforward account of versification that also functions as an argument for a renewed attention to the formal qualities of verse and for a renewed awareness of the forms and traditions that have shaped the way we think about English verse. After an introduction and discussion of basic principles, J…

  • Author(s):
    Louis Dupré
    Subject(s):
    Romanticism
    Abstract:

    This eagerly awaited study brings to completion Louis Dupr\u00E’s planned trilogy on European culture during the modern epoch. Demonstrating remarkable erudition and sweeping breadth, The Quest of the Absolute analyzes Romanticism as a unique cultural phenomenon and a spiritual revolution. Dupr\u00E philosophically reflects on its attempts to recapture the past and transform the present in a movement that is partly a return to premodern culture and partly a violent protest against it. F…

    Katherine C. Little
    Subject(s):
    Literature, Medieval--Influence, English poetry--Early modern, 1500-1700--History and criticism, Pastoral poetry, English--History and criticism
    Abstract:

    Pastoral poetry has long been considered a signature Renaissance mode: originating in late sixteenth-century England via a rediscovery of classical texts, it is concerned with self-fashioning and celebrating the court. But, as Katherine C. Little demonstrates in Transforming Work: Early Modern Pastoral and Medieval Poetry, the pastoral mode is in fact indebted to medieval representations of rural labor.

    Little offers a new literary history for the pastoral, arguing that the authors of the…
