Spenser Studies

A RENAISSANCE POETRY ANNUAL


 

SPENSER Studies: A Renaissance Poetry Annual is, as its name suggests, a journal devoted to the study of Edmund Spenser and the poetry of his immediate context, early modern England. We welcome submissions that examine Spenser's place in literary history, the social and religious contexts of his writing, and the philosophical and conceptual problems he grapples with in his art. Beside articles directly concerned with Spenser's poetry, past issues have contained studies ranging from the diction of Stephen Hawes to female authorship in Mary Wroth's Urania to the influence of English Renaissance sonneteers on William Butler Yeats.

The editors of the journal are William A. Oram, Susannah B. Monta, and Andrew Escobedo (who retires with the publication of Volume 33). The editorial board of the journal comprises the following members:

Judith Anderson
Kenneth Borris
Patrick Cheney
Jeff Dolven
Katherine Eggert
Jane Grogan
Andrew Hadfield
Clare Kinney
Joseph Loewenstein

Richard McCabe
David Lee Miller
Joe Moshenska
James Nohrnberg
Syrithe Pugh
Beth Quitslund
Lauren Silberman
John Watkins
David Wilson-Okamura

In future all manuscripts should be sent as email attachments (preferably in a Windows-compatible format) to  woram@smith.edu and Susannah.B.Monta.1@nd.edu, as well as to spenstud@nd.edu. Essays should be paginated (top right-hand corner) and double-spaced, including notes, which should be grouped at the end and should be prepared according to The Chicago Manual of Style. Authors of essay-length manuscripts should enclose an abstract of 100-150 words. Contributors without email are welcome to send three copies of the manuscript to the editors at their snail mail addresses:

Susannah B. Monta
Department of English
356 O'Shaughnessy Hall
University of Notre Dame

William A. Oram

Once a paper has been accepted, a final revised version should be submitted by email, including the summary abstract for publication at the front of the article.

The journal also includes a section, "Gleanings," for short notices of matters that might interest Spenserians and others interested in Renaissance poetry. Another section, "Forum," includes occasional short replies to articles appearing in recent issues. The editors will be happy to consider enquiries regarding submissions to either of these sections. The journal does not publish book reviews. Potential contributors are welcome to email the editors with inquiries by post or by email at the addresses given above.
