CFP: Lord Byron's Canon

We invite papers dealing with "Lord Byron's Canon," to be published in a
special issue of _Romanticism on the Net_. We welcome papers dealing with those
contemporaries (such as Scott, Rogers, Campbell, Moore, Gifford, etc.) that
Byron tended to prefer to such poets as Wordsworth, Coleridge, or Keats.
Papers could also concern what can be determined/deduced/guessed about the
aesthetic criteria Byron brought to bear upon what he read, and how these
criteria may help illuminate the gap between our modern version(s) of canonical
Romanticism and what the majority of early nineteenth-century readers were
actually reading and valuing. Please send complete papers no later than 1 June
2005 to Prof. Jeffery W. Vail:
