Essays by emerging and established scholars wanted for a volume that
promises to be the first edited collection devoted to the poetry, life,
times, and literary reception of An Collins, author of _Divine Songs and
Meditacions_ (1653).

The working title for this project is: _The Image of Her Mind: An Collins
and the Historical Imagination_.

Essays on any aspect of Collins' work will be considered, but the
following topics/perspectives may be of particular importance for the
volume's design:

* teaching early modern writers
* comparative and/or interdisciplinary analyses
* history, politics, and religion
* class, gender, and race
* material and print culture
* anonymity and authorship in early modern England
* (re)producing early modern texts in the postmodern age
