  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
   
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
   
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

Edwin Arlington Robinson?s (1869-1935) most popular poems consistently
appear in numerous American poetry anthologies and high school
textbooks, his Collected Poems are carried by ?big box? bookstores, and
one of his poems was even the subject of the Simon and Garfunkel song
?Richard Cory.? Scott Donaldson?s forthcoming biography demonstrates
that Robinson remains a figure of literary interest. However, the
scarcity of recent critical work is remarkable; Donaldson?s biography
is the first in more than sixty years. So why does Robinson?s poetry
encourage so little critical attention if he was and is still a public,
published poet? This proposed ALA panel is soliciting 400-600 word
