Association of Literary Scholars and Critics

Convener: David Mikics (University of Houston)
Rumors of the death of the sonnet continue to be exaggerated. Indeed, the sonnet seems to be enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Many journals are publishing more sonnets than they used to, and there are even a number of new periodicals devoted entirely to the form, such as the online publications 14 by 14 and Contemporary Sonnet. This panel will examine the resilience of the sonnet and prospects for its future, paying close attention to the history of the form and discussing some of it preeminent current practitioners. Please send proposals to David Mikics at dmikics@gmail.com, with a CC to alsc@bu.edu.
