The E. E. Cummings Society invites proposals for two panels at the American Literature Association conference, to be held at the Palmer House Hilton, Chicago on May 26-29, 2022.

Panel 1: Cummings and Transcendence

In 1960, Norman Friedman declared that Cummings’ “philosophy of life” was “transcendental, romantic, prelapsarian, organicist, and individualistic. The same is publicly available in the writings of many others, such as Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau, and Emily Dickinson” (Art 66). We seek papers examining, critiquing, clarifying, or complicating these assertions through a close reading of any Cummings work(s).

'What Does the Poem Think?': Aesthetics, Poetics, and Thought

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 9:22am
Faculty of English, University of Cambridge
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 6, 2022

Two hundred years ago, P. B. Shelley wrote in his Defence of Poetry that the language of poets ‘is vitally metaphorical; that is, it marks the before unapprehended relations of things.’ Poetry, which is ‘not like reasoning, […] creates anew the universe, after it has been annihilated in our minds by the recurrence of impressions blunted by reiteration.’ In this way, Shelley gave enduring expression to what S. T. Coleridge had hinted at three years earlier, when he complained in Pope of ‘matter and diction […] characterized not so much by poetic thoughts, as by thoughts translated into the language of poetry.’ Poetry apprehends, formulates, creates, and cognizes in a manner unique to itself and irreducible to any other forms of reasoning or reflection.

Ernest Veyu: Poetics of Textual Transactions

Ken Scholars Publishing invites book chapters to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on intertextuality in the poetry of Ernest Veyu. 
As a postcolonial African (Cameroonian) poet, the texts of Veyu exhibit multiple layers of connection with a multitude of texts. The textual dialogues between Veyu's texts and the broad range of other texts reflect not just "the anxiety of influence" (Harold Bloom) but more profound symbiotic connections with cultures, movements and styles.

you were probably hoping to breathe.

Forgive us.

It was delicious

the way it burned

so bright and

so fast.

Crashing the Canon: A Spotlight for the Underrepresented in Higher Education

updated: 
Friday, December 17, 2021 - 11:31am
The Humanities Review / St. John's University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 22, 2021

When we think of the western literary canon, we tend to think of the famous authors and works that have shaped our literary and scholarly culture into what it is today: Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens, Twain, Whitman, and the list goes on and on. But In our age of cultural and technological advancement, we believe that the bodies of works we consider worthy of study should also reflect the current world around us. Thus, the goal of this issue of The Humanities Review is to shine a spotlight on those authors, works, and platforms which have not yet found a home in the literary/academic canon, but still merit the kind of close literary analysis afforded to the canon.

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort.    E B White

Literature always gives joy, comfort, and solace to everyone who is in search of it. The poems inspire and kindle our thoughts, the novels drive us to have patience and look for new paths, the drama reflects lives in miniature form, the essays make us ponder on the subtle observation of life, autobiographies motivate and lead us to the path of glory….there is no end to describe what literature is and how it shapes our lives. We at times advertently/ inadvertently drink, consume and digest literature. The famous English essayist Francis Bacon aptly puts, “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.”
