by Laurel Brake

In these specially commissioned new essays, seven scholars, from the United Kingdom and the Continent, consider a variety of imaginative articulations of the endings of epochs from the end of the sixteenth century to the present day; their subjects are as diverse as Milton's twin-vision of banishment and beginning to Donna Harraway's `A Manifestation for Cyborgs' and Don DeLillo's version of the death of the author in Mao II. The essays treat drama, epic, poetry, the periodical press, fiction, and current theory; principal authors include Milton, An Collins, Shakespeare, John Fletcher, Henry James, Ella D'Arcy, Arthur Symons, Olive Schreiner, Angela Carter, Bell Hooks, Donna Harraway, Alasdair Gray, Martin Amis, Shena Mackay, and Don DeLillo.Dr LAUREL BRAKE is Senior Lecturer in Literature at Birkbeck College. The contributors are: HELEN WILCOX, GORDON McMULLEN, LAUREL BRAKE, JOSEPH BRISTOW, MARGARET BEETHAM, PENNY SMITH, JEREMY GREEN
