DEREK WALCOTT FESTSCHRIFT. Abstracts of 500 words or original papers of
20-25 pages in length are being solicited for a proposed festschrift
honoring Derek Walcott on the occasion of his 75th birthday, January
2005. Papers that are accepted are to be published in a special issue of
Callaloo before being printed in book form. Submissions will be accepted
through May 2003.
        The editors seek essays addressing specific poems, plays, collections
(especially those that have received little attention.) Walcott's
affinity for classical literature is manifest in works other than his
epic "Omeros." Editors also encourage broader theses on techniques,
themes, motifs, and social, literary, and linguistic influences
concomitant with Walcott's New World milieu.
