The Ohio State University Press series “Theory and Interpretation of Narrative,” co-edited by Professor of Comparative Literature Peter J. Rabinowitz and James Phelan, has just published its 30th volume: Narrative Means, Lyric Ends: Temporality in the Nineteenth-Century British Long Poem by Monique Morgan.

A skillful and provocative study of four canonical long poems by Wordsworth, Byron, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Robert Browning, the book centers on their hybrid nature, in particular their productive tension between lyrical and narrative modes. In the process, Morgan not only offers fresh readings of the poems, but also encourages us to rethink traditional notions of narrative and lyric. A full description of Narrative Means, Lyric Ends can be found at http://www.ohiostatepress.org/Books/Book%20Pages/Morgan%20Narrative.html
