In this paper I describe a novel form of writing pedagogy that encourages
students to select their own topics for papers based on course readings
and class discussion. The purpose behind this approach is to facilitate a

trying to conform to a standard of evaluation that is outside themselves.
Since students will be doing a great deal of writing beyond

killer and serial killing function to address contemporary cultural
concerns and preoccupations.

Thou hast no speculation in those eyes

A special issue on Hawthorne's final period of writing is being planned for
the fall 2009 issue of the _Nathaniel Hawthorne Review_. In quantitative
terms, the literary writings of this period make up a substantial portion
of Hawthorne's oeuvre, filling more than three volumes of the Centenary
edition. Though once much maligned, these late works have begun to attract
the serious attention from scholars they once seemed destined for. When
Septimius Felton was posthumously published in 1872, many critics were
enthusiastic â€" the reviewer of the London Times declared that "it will be
read for its poetry and fancy by many who care but little for fiction in
