The most recent issue of Marvell Studies is a special issue on theoretical approaches to Andrew Marvell’s poetry, edited by Ben LaBreche and Ryan Netzley. It contains essays by John Garrison (on object-oriented erotics in Marvell’s verse), Jason Kerr (on vulnerability as an ontological feature of humans), and Brendan Prawdzik (on the limits of eco-criticism for Marvell studies and the concept of ‘greenwashing’). In addition, this issue contains reviews of Brendan Prawdzik’s Theatrical Milton: Politics and Poetics of the Staged Body and Alex Garganigo’s Samson's Cords: Imposing Oaths in Milton, Marvell, and Butler.
Marvell Studies is also planning a special issue for fall 2020 on manuscript circulation and book history. Edited by Diane Purkiss, the issue will include essays addressing 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 continues to welcome 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.
