Submissions are now sought for the eleventh issue of Variations, the journal=

Number 11 of Variations (Winter 2003) will focus on the topic of
monuments and, more generally, on the issue of the monumental. The
following questions are at the core of our interest:

- To what extent can a literary text be regarded as a monument and
thus as a memorial? What are the formal, textual and stylistic
characteristics of the monumental text (e.g. Proust's work considered
as a cathedral or Moby Dick as a monument of a nation)? Or is it
instead the recipient who characterizes the text as monumental?

Nieves Pascual Soler

Original essays are invited for a collection of essays tentatively
entitled The Productivity of Pain. For long, pain has been coded as a
means to salvation and knowledge, and as a stimulus to writing. Or else
it has been objectified as the truth´s negative, something that far from
ennobling human beings distances them from their affects. The logic is
not hard to stomach. Pain poses a threat to identity by making the body
alien. Sartre, in fact, confessed that illness deprived him of himself.
But, within the same movement, pain confers identity to the individual
because nobody can suffer for you, instead of you, just as nobody can
die for you. Physical suffering is thus one of the most private of
