I am pleased to announce that my essay “To Scorn or to ‘Scorn Not the Sonnet'” will appear in the Blackwell Companion to Romantic Poetry, edited by Charles Mahoney at the University of Connecticut. It is an honor to appear among some of the most distinguished scholars of British Romanticism, including Michael O’Neill, William Flesch, Esther Schor, Simon Bainbridge, Michael Scrivener, Angela Esterhammer, Timothy Bahti, Ian Balfour–to name only a few!
Here’s a blurb copied from the Wiley website:
