Literature Interpretation Theory

Editors in Chief
Lee A. Jacobus and Regina Barreca
University of Connecticut

LIT publishes critical essays that offer rigorous textual analysis from a
variety of theoretical approaches including, but not limited to: cultural
and social criticism, political criticism, formalism, structuralism,
semiotics, and hermeneutics. We welcome studies on feminist and gender
issues, on ethnic criticism as well as on new historicism and old. The aim
of the journal is to provide a forum for sometimes competing theoretical
views. We publish criticism in English and do not restrict the journal's
scope in terms of period or nation. We encourage essays that synthesize
ideology, art, and aesthetics and we discourage essays that are exclusively
explication. Essays accompanied by illustrations are especially welcome.
LIT assumes that submission of a paper implies that no other journal or
publisher is currently considering the paper for publication in the form in
which it is submitted. Papers should be submitted in triplicate. All
submissions will be acknowledged and decided upon within three months.
Copyright remains in the possession of the journal.
The MLA Style Sheet is the preferred guide to the preparation of papers.
LIT welcomes illustrated essays. Photographs are to be original, preferably
8 x 10 inches black and white glossies. Color illustrations should be in
transparency form. It is the responsibility of authors to secure permission
for publication from the original source of the illustration. Line drawings
are to be original, no larger than 8 x 10 inches. All illustrations will be
returned to author.
We have no restrictions on length of articles. A 150-word abstract should
accompany submissions of papers.
Authors will receive page proofs of text and illustrations by airmail for
correction. Authors must provide up-to-date addresses for the processing of
proofs. Twenty-five free reprints will be provided the senior author on
publication. Additional reprints may be ordered by completing the
appropriate form sent with proofs.
