Call for papers: "Earth, Air, Water, Fire: Twentieth Century Poetics of
Simplicity"

=20

Much of the best known and most widely admired poetry of the last
hundred years displays, even flaunts, its bookishness, its elaborate and
often thrilling systems of allusion and symbology, its theoretical
sophistication. The best of this work, from the high modernists to the
language poets, is both dazzling and exhilarating. We love this stuff,
for itself no doubt, and rightly, but possibly also for the way the
arcana make us feel useful to our students.

CFP: John Gower in the 21st Century (UK) (7/31/06; Leeds, 7/9/07-7/12/07)

The poetry of John Gower has experienced a renaissance of critical interest
in recent years, and scholars are beginning to realise the potential of
subjecting his works to an array of innovative approaches. This session aims
to bring together a panel assessing Gower¹s situation within 21st-century
medieval studies, and it is hoped that we can define more clearly his
position in the contemporary academy and his relation to the London culture
in which he was working, especially the relationship between his poetry and
that of his contemporaries and successors.
