This Rough Magic (www.thisroughmagic.org) is a journal dedicated to the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance Literature.
All too often, the same canonical works and authors find their way into Medieval and Renaissance Literature courses. While canonical literature is extremely important and not to be avoided, a great many authors (i.e., Cyril Tourneur) and texts (i.e., Life of St. Margaret of Antioch) go un-noticed. We are therefore looking for short essays (i.e., 5-10 pages) that encourage readers to try non-traditional, over-looked, teachable texts inside their classrooms. Essays should answer the following:

Which like a fountain with a hundred spouts
did run pure blood: and many lusty Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it." (2.2.76-79)
