Call for Essays
Essays sought for the upcoming volume The Presence of Absence: Literary Missing Persons, which will examine texts in which an absent character (or characters) has a real influence upon plot or theme (Waiting for Godot, for example). Essays should be clear and jargon free, and aimed at upper-division undergraduates and above. Texts written in English will be given precedence, although European texts readily available in translation will also receive consideration. Abstracts due by 1 February (2010), full essays by June 2. Publisher anticipates book in hand by early 2011.
