Submissions are now sought for the eleventh issue of Variations, the journal=
of literature of the University of Zurich, to appear in winter 2003.
Number 11 of Variations (Winter 2003) will focus on the topic of
monuments and, more generally, on the issue of the monumental. The
following questions are at the core of our interest:
- To what extent can a literary text be regarded as a monument and
thus as a memorial? What are the formal, textual and stylistic
characteristics of the monumental text (e.g. Proust's work considered
as a cathedral or Moby Dick as a monument of a nation)? Or is it
instead the recipient who characterizes the text as monumental?
