CFP: [American] Faulkner the Seducer
Call For Papers:
The Faulkner Journal Vol. 25: Faulkner the Seducer
One of Faulknerâ€™s earliest self-portraits was that of the smooth-talking
seducer. In Mosquitoes, Jenny Steinbauer recalls a â€œfunny manâ€
named â€œFaulknerâ€ who tells her that she has â€œthe best digestion he ever
sawâ€ and warns that â€œif the straps of my dress was to break Iâ€™d devastate
the country.â€ Comic though it is, Faulknerâ€™s brief portrait set the stage
for numerous seductions that would occur both in his works and in his
personal life. The Faulkner Journal is seeking essays on the topic of
Faulkner and the art of seduction, whether it be the authorâ€™s seduction
of the reader, his charactersâ€™ attempts at enticement, or Faulknerâ€™s own
examples of manipulation in his engagement with others and in his
creation of a public persona.
Inquiries and submissions should be directed to The Faulkner Journal at
faulkner_at_pegasus.cc.ucf.edu. Deadline for submission is May 1, 2009.
Please follow the submission guidelines provided in The Faulkner Journal
