With Swinburne's 2009 centennial approaching, we would like you to consider
contributing to a new collection of essays that will celebrate Swinburne and
Swinburne scholarship. As our main goal in this collection is to explore the
less familiar regions of Swinburne corpus, we invite essays that focus on the
poetry, prose, and criticism published after 1870 and especially during the
Putney period. Essays may address, but are not confined to, the following
issues:
--Swinburne's later formal and generic experimentalism
--treatment and redefinition of Romantic tropes
--manipulation of classical and medieval myth
--mature philosophical and spiritual concerns
--modulating visions of sexuality

In recent years there has been a growing critical
interest in the literary detective, and a number of
recent studies have examined the late nineteenth- and
early twentieth-century sleuth from a variety of
theoretical perspectives: Foucauldian, feminist,
post-colonial and post-structuralist. Cultural
historians examine the period and the detective in
terms of empire, gender, social authority and
scientific developments in criminology. Little is said
of the relationship between late Victorian and
Edwardian detective fiction in terms of style, the art
of detection and the question of contemporary
aesthetic theory.
