MODERNISM'S METAPHORS, IMAGES, AND SYMBOLS
The World Literary Review is seeking scholarly research and writing on the figurative language of metaphor, image, and symbol prevalent in literary Modernism to be published in its online edition. Any work of modernism from around the globe is eligible. Writers include but are not restricted to Yeats, Eliot, Pound, Woolf, Joyce, Kafka, O'Neill, Beckett, Pinter, Camus, Sartre, Stein, Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Wright, Ellison, Plath, and others. Seeking an international perspective, the editors welcome works representing Africa, China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, and other countries. Examples of works include Lu Xun's Diary of a Madman and Natsume Sōseki's Botchan and Kokoro. Russian authors include Gorky, Sholokhov, Tolstoy, and others.
We are particularly interested in the manner in which images from these works have impacted the period of Modernism, later literature, social discourse, and cultural framing.
The use of postmodern works is welcomed as long as the scholar shows a meaningful relationship between postmodern, or contemporary, and modernist imagery.
Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and should include the writer's name and institution of record. Completed manuscripts should range between 2,000 and 5,000 words, written in MLA style. Please refrain from using endnotes.
