"Splendour in the Grass":
2006 Victorian Studies Association of Ontario Spring Conference Call for Papers
(Extended Deadline: 30 January 2006)

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
Of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.

- William Wordsworth, "Intimations of Immortality" (1803-06)

Just as Wordsworth's poem opens itself up to numerous interpretations, so too
does the Victorian Studies Association of Ontario wish to open its conference
to the consideration of a range of subjects around Victorian notions of nature,
splendour, spirit, and knowledge.
