"We badly need a new way of thinking about novels that acknowledges their technological reality. We have to learn how to look at fiction as lines of print on a page and we to ask whether it is always the best arrangement to have a solid block of print from one margin to the other running down the page from top to bottom, except for occasional paragraph indentations."
—Ronald Sukenick, The New Tradition in Fiction

Chris Martiniano / Midwest Modern Language Association

The Illustrated Texts session welcomes papers as well as innovative or even illustrative presentations that interrogate the concept of illustration broadly construed. In addition to proposals that explore traditionally illustrated texts, this panel also invites proposals that question the illustrative nature of much of our own work. Does illustration "light up, clear up, or elucidate" our text as its etymology suggests or is it operating differently?

Universitas Press

This edited volume marking the centennial of Sholem Aleykhem's death (May 1916), will explore the writer's vast contributions to Yiddish literature through comparison with authors of other national literatures. The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements. Often called "the Jewish Mark Twain" – due to similar writing style and use of pen name – Sholem Aleykhem's favorite writers spanned the spectrum of world literature – among them: Sterne, Dickens, Twain, Tolstoy and Gorky.
