CFP: The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason (1/10/07; SGES, 2/15/07-2/17/07)

Monday, December 11, 2006 - 11:26pm

Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

Romanticism and Heroism

Call for Papers

I want a hero: an uncommon want
  When every year and month sends forth a new one,
Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
  The age discovers he is not the true one;
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
  I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.

                              Byron, Don Juan, Canto I, (ll.1-6)
