Call for Papers
How do literary texts use, produce, or complicate the idea of evidence? How do ideas of evidence from other disciplines or fields—from philosophical, legal, or scientific disciplines, for example—provide context for the emergence and treatment of evidence in literary works? How do different forms or standards of evidence, inflected into literary texts, amplify or complicate apparent national, ethnic, sexual, or gender differences? How do texts perform evidentiary inquiry, and how do these modes of inquiry impact the form of the narrative, characterization, and so forth?
Shakespeare's late play Coriolanus at first glance seems to be a straightforward case of a haughty patrician whose own pride leads to his loss of stature and life—a tragedy in the classic mold. The majority opinion echoes Olivier who likened him to "a very straightforward, reactionary son of a so-and-so" whose "thoughts are not deep" and Curry who labelled him as "one of the hardest characters to like." However, interesting characters—Shakespeare raised many—resist categorizing.
