Spring 2021
Posted by Ryan A Netzley on 2021-04-08

The most recent issue of Marvell Studies contains an essay by Alex Garganigo on the reception and adaptation of “To His Coy Mistress” in science fiction and fantasy since 1950.  In addition, this issue contains reviews of Patrick McGrath’s Early Modern Asceticism (by Daniel Juan Gil) and Steven Zwicker’s John Dryden: Selected Writings (by Ryan Hackenbracht).
Due to the reduced accessibility of important research materials during the COVID-19 pandemic, the special issue on manuscript circulation and book history will now appear in spring 2022. 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 (rnetzley@siu.edu). Laurent Curelly (laurent.curelly@uha.fr) serves as the book review editor: please contact him with any suggestions for books to review.
