Vol. 39, No. 1 (Winter, 1987), pp. 28-57 (30 pages)

On a mission from the Faerie Queen, it seems that his interest in Deirdre may be more sinister than love. That is a brief synopsis. While there are echoes of other books - WICKED LOVELY by Melissa Marr is one and even the TWILIGHT saga by Stephenie Meyer is another, because of the doomed romance, LAMENT manages to hold its own and create.

Trouble is, the enigmatic and gorgeous Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin.

Journal Information

Comparative Literature welcomes articles that explore important issues of literary history not confined to a single national literature. We also encourage submissions that address significant problems in literary theory. Our editors and editorial board are sympathetic to a broad range of theoretical and critical approaches.

Publisher Information

Duke University Press publishes approximately one hundred books per year and thirty journals, primarily in the humanities and social sciences, though it does also publish two journals of advanced mathematics and a few publications for primarily professional audiences (e.g., in law or medicine). The relative magnitude of the journals program within the Press is unique among American university presses. In recent years, it has developed its strongest reputation in the broad and interdisciplinary area of 'theory and history of cultural production,' and is known in general as a publisher willing to take chances with nontraditional and interdisciplinary publications, both books and journals.

Why did this block occur?

A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply.

If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block. Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site.

Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.
