Deadline extended:

Call for abstracts for essays for publication in the upcoming =
collection: Elizabeth Bowen: New Critical Perspectives (edited by Susan =
Osborn, Rutgers University).=20

Aims and Intentions: Elizabeth Bowen's writing has always provoked =
controversy, from the publication of her first stories to her final =
discontinuous novel, Eva Trout. Yet despite the conspicuous =
irregularities in her fictional narratives, most of Bowen's past readers =
have avoided any discussion of those aspects of her work, in particular =
her experiments with style and language, that make her work complex and =
controversial. The aim of this collection is to broaden the critical =
framework of Bowen scholarship and to extend existing Bowen criticism. =
New readings of Bowen's fictional narratives that address the less =
customary and unexpected aspects of her work (and interpretations that =
relate those aspects to recent shifts in our thinking about modernism =
generally) as well as essays that address the uncertain relation between =
Bowen and her past and present readers are welcome. Finished essays =
should be approximately 7000 to 10,000 words.=20

Please send a 250-word, double-spaced and titled abstract (or finished =
essay), and a brief scholarly biography by November 30 to S. Osborn, =
Ph.D. at susosborn_at_patmedia.net.
