Contributions are invited for a proposed collection of essays on Victorian women poets and marriage with
the working title Victorian Women Poets and the Problem of Marriage. Victorian female poets�
perspectives on the institution of marriage and on the problem of balancing the demands of marriage and
the artist�s life are important but have not been adequately explored. Of course, Elizabeth Barrett
Browning certainly raises precisely these issues in Aurora Leigh, but many other female poets of the
nineteenth century concerned themselves with these same issues and resolved them in different ways,
sometimes choosing not to marry (Christina Rossetti and Adelaide Proctor), sometimes marrying with

Black Poetry Out of the Archive

 

Because poetry written by blacks in the United States since the turn of
the 20^th Century has mainly been defined in terms of its oral or
experiential power, little attention has been given to the literate
aspects of that poetry's development, production, or publication.
Archives, of course, are the record of such literate processes, and many
of the archives of some of modernism and postmodernism's most important
black writers have yet to be adequately studied for the critical light
they can shed on the poetic work.

Call for abstracts on the relationship between poetry and the cyber-age.

Poets, professors, and lovers of poetry in general repeatedly assert that the
book as an aesthetic object has lasting value. But are we kidding ourselves?
 With a readership increasingly reliant on the computer, and a new generation
of students who have never known a time when the Internet was more than a
click away, is it only a matter of time before poetry is primarily an element of
cyberspace? Is this good or bad? With more than a hundred fonts, point
sizes, untold programs and graphic elements, how will the function of the computer
affect the actual forms of poetry?
