Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
   
   
  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?

Romanticism and Heroism

Call for Papers

I want a hero: an uncommon want
  When every year and month sends forth a new one,
Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
  The age discovers he is not the true one;
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
  I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.

This proposed session of the 2007 combined NASSR/BARS Conference at the University of Bristol invites a study of the child in Romantic literature as a liberator or symbol of liberty.

overview of the subject of the adaptation of nineteenth-century British works, as
well as examinations into the creation of adaptations and their use in the
classroom. Although a wide range of critical approaches will be considered,
the emphasis should be on what particular adaptations reveal about the ways in
