in particular innnovative scholarly work that might not fit the rubric of the
increasingly preprogrammed theoretical perspective of many traditional and
not-so-traditional journals. Recent contributors have included Andrew
Benjamin, Geoffrey Hartman, Carol Jacobs and Andrew Parker.

consideration for prompt publication. We invite articles on
literature in both classical and modern languages and in all
historical periods, ancient, medieval, renaissance,
seventeenth and eighteenth century, romantic, Victorian,

specific topics.
