Revisiting Robert Bage's Fiction
    
    
  The editor (Dr Sandro Jung) of the projected collection on Robert Bage invites full-length chapters (6000-8000 words) on any aspect of Bage's fiction. While Bage's Hermsprong has received occasional scholarly interest, it has, on the whole, remained Bage's only novel that is read nowadays. In that respect, chapters on Bage's other novels would be especially welcome. It is hoped that the novels will be contextualised against the background of the Romantic discourses of identity as well as the political (anti-)Jacobin debates.
    
  Please submit 400-word abstracts electronically to the editor at Sandro.Jung at btinternet.com
