CFP: [20th] The Novelist as Poet: Recovering Mid-Century British Poetry

Wednesday, August 15, 2007 - 4:33pm
Pamela J. Francis

as close readings, chapters might address questions of audience, reception,
historicity, marketing, paratext, etc.
Chapters might also focus upon a bestselling author (author as brand or as
celebrity), or serial fiction, although where an individual book is not the
chapter's focus, a case should be made for its status as an American
