13th International Connotations Symposium - Poetic Justice: Legal, Ethical, and Aesthetic Judgments in Literary Texts

updated: 
Monday, February 24, 2014 - 9:15am
Connotations: A Journal for Critical Debate

The first textbook definition of the concept of poetic justice goes back to Thomas Rymer's The Tragedies of the Last Age Consider'd (1678). According to him, the term signified "the distribution, at the end of a literary work, of earthly rewards and punishments in proportion to the virtue or vice of the various characters" (Abrams, Glossary of Literary Terms 299-300). The introduction of virtue and vice into the concept immediately refers to a moral dimen-sion; on aesthetic grounds, however, it was soon (and has continued to be) criticized.

Forever: University of Toronto Graduate Conference, May 15-16 2014

updated: 
Monday, February 24, 2014 - 12:10am
English Graduate Conference at University of Toronto

Best friends forever; been that way forever; nothing lasts forever; forever young. 'Forever' is ubiquitous in our cultural imagination. It finds its way into statements of intimacy and commitment, as well as statements of loss; it seems applicable both to the spiritual and the mundane; likewise to the very long and the ephemeral. 'Forever' comes up in discourses of religion, in manuscript and book history, and in medieval and early modern conceptions of time.
