CALL FOR PAPERS

The relationship between literature and the visual arts has a long and complex history which includes poets responses to iconic works of art such as Keats's 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' and notable collaborations between artists and poets such as those between Auden and Henry Moore and, more recently, Philip Gross and Simon Denison. Beyond poetry, the tales of Saki and Vernon Lee and the fiction of A. S. Byatt feature descriptions of fictional works of art.
