Visual Devices in Contemporary Prose Fiction: Gaps, Gestures, Images

This book acknowledges that the reader of a novel looks at and sees the page before they begin to read any text placed upon it. Thus, any disruptions to how a traditional page 'should look' can have a large impact on the reading process. The book critically engages with the visual appearance of graphically innovative contemporary prose fiction.

The Domus Aurea and the Roman Architectural Revolution

Nero's palace, the Domus Aurea (Golden House), is an influential building in the history of Roman architecture. Because it has been incompletely studied and poorly understood since its most important sections were excavated in the 1930s, Larry Ball's study of the palace includes a needed comprehensive analysis of its masonry, design, and abundant ancient literary evidence. Highlighting the revolutionary innovations of the Domus Aurea...
