If a lie had no more faces but one, as truth had, we should be in farre better termes than we are: For whatsoever a lier should say, we would take it in a contrarie sense. But the opposite of truth has many shapes, and an undefinite field.

Previously unpublished critical essays are being sought for a new volume tentatively entitled Intellectual Disability in Literature: Critical Essays. Disability studies is a rapidly emerging academic discipline, as is evidenced by the increasing number of degree programs in disability across the United States. An area of study within disability studies is the representation of disability in literature. Imaginative texts are replete with intellectually challenged characters. Novels such as Dostoyevsky's The Idiots, Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, and O'Connor's The Violent Bear It Away include developmentally delayed characters. Other types of prose also include characters called in variously disparaging terms.
