Subject:    King Lear Journal Advice?

Dear SHAKSPERians,

As part of a book-length project, I am writing an article in which I 
claim to solve the problem (in _King Lear_) of Kent's "dear cause" -- 
why Kent insists upon remaining in disguise after he reaches Dover, what 
is his final secret mission.

It turns out, as I see it, that this puzzle points to a much larger 
question about Kent's identity and activities, matters which I also 
tackle in my article, which is not inflected through any high-tech 
theoretical orientation, but is more from a close-reading approach.

Anyway, my problem is that my academic training is not in English 
literature (but philosophy).

Thus, I lack relevantly wise mentors to call upon, and I am ignorant 
about which journals might be interested in such an article these days. 
(I am immodestly hoping that my piece will be widely read.)

So this is an appeal to those who are savvy about this field today. To 
anyone kind enough to advise me about where I should submit my article, 
I would be very grateful.

Thanks for your time!

Michael McShane
