The most recent issue of Marvell Studies contains essays by Joan Faust (on liminality in the understudied “Two Songs at the Marriage of the Lord Fauconberg and the Lady Mary Cromwell”) and Laura Seymour (on the transposition of an object’s qualities to a subject in “The Garden,” and the role of that transfer in the constitution of a bearable solitude). It also includes a short essay by Nicholas von Maltzahn on Marvell’s use of the cassowary in “The Last Instructions.” In addition, this issue contains reviews of books by George Klawitter and A.D. Cousins, as well as a collection of essays edited by Matthew Augustine and Steven Zwicker.
In spring 2019, Marvell Studies will publish a special issue on new theoretical approaches to Marvell, with essays by John Garrison, Jason Kerr, and Brendan Prawdzik, and a response from Joanna Picciotto.
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. Please contact Professor Purkiss for more details about this special issue, including information about proposing papers.
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.
