[UPDATE] DEADLINE REMINDER Edward Upward -- Essay Collection

updated:

Benjamin Kohlmann, University of Oxford

***NOTE: The deadline for submission of abstracts is 8 February 2010.***

Spanning nearly eight decades, the work of Edward Upward (b.1903, d. February 2009) is without parallel in English letters. Upward's influence on the literature of the 'Auden generation' (from his quasi-Surrealist Mortmere fantasies to his political stories of the thirties) was outstanding; his life-long commitment to the Communist cause made him the moral authority for left-wing writers from the 1930s onwards. At the same time, Upward's own writings have sometimes been eclipsed by the works of the authors he influenced – most notably W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood.
