I would like to invite submissions to a collection of new essays on the
seventeenth-century writer, Thomas Traherne. 2003 will mark the 100 year
anniversary of Dobell's first edition of Traherne's poetry, so the timing is
right for such a collection. The general theme is "new approaches to
Traherne," and that can be interpreted broadly. All scholarly ranks are
encouraged to submit. Major university presses have already expressed
initial interest in the project. Begin by sending a detailed
prospectus/abstract and a brief C.V. to:

Jacob Blevins
Department of Languages
McNeese State University
Lake Charles LA 70609-2655

Questions can be emailed to blevinsjake_at_aol.com.
