"When I call poetry a form of partiality," writes Heather McHugh, "I mean its economies operate by powers of intimation: glimmering and glints, rather than exhaustible sums. It is a broken language from the beginning, brimming with non-words: all that white welled up to keep the line from surrendering to the margin; all that quiet, to keep the musics marked." In Broken English, McHugh applies her poetic sensibility and formidable critical insight to topics ranging from the poetry of Valéry and Rilke to ancient Greek drama and Yoruba folk songs, offering intense, passionate, highly personal readings that are informed and unified by her concern for the relationships among language, culture, and poetry.

The English language in the Renaissance was in many ways a collection of competing Englishes. Paula Blank investigates the representation of alternative vernaculars - the dialects of early modern English - in both linguistic and literary works of the period. Blank argues that Renaissance authors such as Spenser, Shakespeare and Jonson helped to construct the idea of a national language, variously known as 'true' English or 'pure' English or the 'King's English', by distinguishing its dialects - and sometimes by creating those dialects themselves. Broken English reveals how the Renaissance 'invention' of dialect forged modern alliances of language and cultural authority. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Renaissance studies and Renaissance English literature. It will also make fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the history of English language.

Book 2 of the Amish-Country Mysteries, Broken English compulsively explores a fascinating culture set purposely apart. In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English," who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed. David Hawkins came to the quiet town of Millersburg to escape his demons and unexpectedly found salvation in Amish life-until his English daughter is brutally murdered.

DBC Pierre's second novel charts the unlikely meeting between East and West that follows Ludmila Derev's appearance on a Russian brides website. Determined to save her family from starvation in the face of marauding Gnez troops, Ludmila's journey into the world and womanhood is an odyssey of sour wit, even sourer vodka, and a Soviet tractor probably running on goat's piss. Thousands of miles to the West, the Heath twins are separated after 33 years conjoined at the abdomen. Released for the first time from an institution rumoured to have been founded for an illegitimate child of Charles II, they are suddenly plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity, rowdy with the chatter of freedom, democracy, self-empowerment and sex. A wild and raucous picaresque dripping with flavours of British bacon and nasty Russian vodka, Ludmila's Broken English is a tale of tango-ing twins on a journey into the unknown. A ride so outrageously improbable it just may happen, DBC Pierre's second novel confirms his place in the ranks of today's most original storytellers.

-<I>Broken English-: The Creole Language of Carriacou is the first attempt to document - from a linguistic and anthropological perspective - the variety of Creole English spoken on the island, Carriacou. It is a small island in the Eastern Caribbean between Grenada and St. Vincent, which has long been of interest to anthropologists and musicologists due to its relative isolation and the richness of its African-American cultural traditions. This book contains an extensive ecology of the language, which is followed by a sketch of its major grammatical features. Also included are transcriptions of recorded natural language texts, as well as a lexicon. The focus throughout this work is on the language in its social and cultural context, with the goal that readers will come away with a sense of the richness of Carriacou's language and culture."

Broken English/Breaking English discusses the work of some prominent contemporary poets writing in English. It examines the challenges to a poetic discourse that was claimed in immediately post-Second World War England to be pure and English. The study begins with a scrutiny of what Donald Davie called Purity of Diction, and offers a contrary view generated earlier by emergent American (literary) English in the work of Walt Whitman and William Carlos Williams. There follows consideration of the clash between Alfred Alvarez labeled the Gentility Principle and American-sourced confessionalism, before the debate moves to the contemporary period. Successive chapters are devoted to women's poetry as offering a challenge to Davie-style pure English; to the new poetic dictions breaking in ethnicminority poetry in England; to work going on in English on the British geographical frontiers - Northern Ireland and Scotland; and to poetry written in ex-British colonies and dominions, specifically Australia.
