Paper proposals solicited for The Melville Society ALA panel "Melville and Literary Influence: Reframing Tradition" at the next American Literature Association meeting (May 25-28, Boston). Emboldened by the innovative new work being done on the question of literary influence and intertextuality, this panel seeks papers that explore both Herman Melville's engagements with other writers and texts and the dynamics of influence and intertextual practice. While Melville's engagements with English literary tradition will no doubt be a central topic, the panel is open to the fullest range of possible topics related to these questions.

Lucas Malet, Dissident Pilgrim: Critical Essays

Popular novelist, female aesthete, Victorian radical and proto-Modernist, Lucas Malet was a literary tour de force in her own day, yet her work has been largely neglected by contemporary readers and critics. A daughter of Charles Kingsley, Malet was part of a creative dynasty from which she drew inspiration but against which she rebelled both in her personal life and her published work. Scholarship by Talia Schaffer and Catherine Delyfer has reopened critical enquiry into the work of this fascinating author, and we are seeking contributions in order to expand this emerging field of study.

The prevalence of these creatures prompts literary critics to ask why they haunt us. What can we learn from a closer examination of these fictional monsters?
