The most recent issue of Marvell Studies contains essays by Stephen Spencer (on the political valences of weeping, especially Cromwell’s weeping, for revolutionary Protestants), and Adam Patrick Strömbergsson-DeNora (on Neoplatonic love as a political principle in the Mower poems and “The Definition of Love”). In addition, this issue contains a review of Melissa Schoenberger, Cultivating Peace. The Virgilian Georgic in English, 1650-1750.
Marvell Studies is planning a special issue for fall 2020 on manuscript circulation and book history. Edited by Diane Purkiss, the issue will include essays (by Johanna Harris, Julie Park, Patrick McGrath, and Stewart Mottram) on the material circulation of Marvell’s poetry and prose, in both manuscript and print, especially how that circulation raises questions about the theory of the republic of letters and the reception and efficacy of satire.
The journal welcomes individual essay submissions, as well as special issue proposals. Please send any queries in this respect to the editor, Ryan Netzley (firstname.lastname@example.org). Laurent Curelly (email@example.com) serves as the book review editor: please contact him with any suggestions for books to review.
