Special Issue, The William Carlos Williams Review

And since these milestones also coincide with a resurgent scholarly interest in lyric studies and modernist literature in general, the William Carlos Williams Review is soliciting articles for a special, double issue on "The New Williams" (forthcoming in 2015).
