Subject:     Problems with Digests

 

Dear Subscribers,

 

Many have reported to me that they have been receiving digests for which the fonts are too small, creating difficulty with reading them. My apologies.

 

I am still familiarizing myself with the new software and procedures. I made one change to make one of my jobs easier but that change inadvertently created the problem with the small fonts.

 

I am going to try something different today and hope it will resolve the problem. Please contact me if it does not or if you have any other questions or difficulties.

 

Best wishes, 

Hardy M. Cook

John W. Kennedy, speaking of the puzzling line --  “Atalanta's better part” -- from AYLI, suggests that "[c]hastity seems the most obvious" virtue being referred to. I find this quite plausible but is there any evidence of her being a well-recognized emblem of chastity at that time?

CFP for B&L: Shax and Af Am Poetics

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 22.0211  Friday, 2 September 2011

Subject:      CFP for B&L: Shax and Af Am Poetics

 

Call for Papers: Shakespeare and African American Poetics: Special Issue of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation in association with The Langston Hughes Review 

 

The editors of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation (B&L), in association with the editor of the The Langston Hughes Review (LHR), extend a call for essays on the topic of "Shakespeare and African American Poetics." We encourage authors to understand "Poetics" in its most expansive sense. Essays on this rich subject might take as their themes not only the work of Langston Hughes himself but also that of Toni Morrison, Frederick Douglass, Gwendolyn Brooks, Richard Wright, Rita Dove, Gloria Naylor, Natasha Trethewey, Edmonia Lewis, and other luminaries of African American arts. We are keen to encourage essays on "reverse appropriation" too -- i.e. we are not necessarily seeking straightforward "source studies" but interventions in the debates surrounding cultural appropriation as a process that moves back and forth between dominant and minority cultures. Successful essays should contribute toward our understanding of Shakespeare and the artist whose work it engages. In other words, an essay about Toni Morrison and Shakespeare should advance existing scholarship on both Morrison and on Shakespeare.

 

Send completed essays to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or to the editors of B&L (addresses below) by March 1, 2012. Essays will be sent to one Shakespearean and to one scholar of African American literature. Essays will be published online in a special issue or cluster of B&L.

 

About the Journals:

The Langston Hughes Review is the official publication of the Langston Hughes Society. LHR welcomes prose and poetry pertaining to Langston Hughes specifically, or more generally to his cultural milieu. It also publishes general articles on literature, culture, and performance, as well as special topics issues. LHR is fully indexed in the MLA Bibliography. LHR is currently edited by Dr. Ron Baxter Miller, University of Georgia.

 

Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia journal that welcomes original scholarship engaging with the afterlives of Shakespearean texts and their literary, filmic, multimedia, and critical histories. It encourages contributors to use the online format to its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or illustrate their essays with multimedia (screen captures, sound clips, images, and so on). B&L won the CELJ's "Best New Journal" Award in 2007. B&L is fully indexed in the MLA Bibliography. B&L is currently co-edited by Dr. Christy Desmet (cdesmet [at] uga.edu)and Dr. Sujata Iyengar (iyengar [at] uga.edu ; correspondence should be addressed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dear Hardy Cook:

 

1. The report is not objective, despite its faux-academic tone and format, and completely misrepresents my book and its case.

 

It is, in fact, a hatchet job and was so from the beginning. This is why I withdrew from participation.

 

2. I will reply with specifics in due course and request that this listserv publishes my response to the same extent, manner, and degree as it publishes the report.

  

3. Please keep me fully informed of any related discussion on this listserv, and allow me to respond.

 

Thank you, 

Michael Egan

During Ward Elliott's Golden Ear tests, I proved to have one ear with a slight golden tinge and one leaden ear.  But let me suggest that any others on this list with tin ears who might be persuaded by Michael Egan's Woodstock theory can perform a simple but tedious test of the "Shakespeareaness" of the play:  first transcribe a couple of canonical plays, then type out Woodstock and anything else from the apocrypha.  

 

I did that a few years ago with Woodstock, Edward III, Sir John Oldcastle, and "Famous Victories of Henry Fift."  At the end of the exercise, I could not believe that the author of the canon had anything in common with the other playwrights other than, say, use of a quill pen.  For the most part they are deservedly anonymous.

 

Cheers,

Al Magary
