  • Three Daughters, Two Stories, One Tragedy: Ownership and Incest in William
           Shakespeare's King Lear and Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her 1991 adaptation of King Lear, Jane Smiley transfers William Shakespeare's characters and plotline onto an American midwestern farm. Lear is now Larry Cook, proud owner of a thousand acres and father to three daughters: Ginny (aligned with Goneril), Rose (with Regan), and Caroline (with Cordelia). To avoid death taxes, Larry bestows his farm to his daughters, but when Caroline objects to his plans, he disinherits her. In time, Larry and Caroline reunite, call Ginny and Rose usurpers, and take Ginny and Rose to court, suing to regain the farm. During the legal battle and family drama, Ginny tries to murder Rose with poisoned sauerkraut after Rose steals Jess Clark, Ginny's secret lover and Smiley's Edmund ... Read More

  • W. Somerset Maugham, Henry James, and the Modernist Aesthetic of The Moon
           and Sixpence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Perhaps the most disparaging criticism of W. Somerset Maugham comes from Edmund Wilson, who, in his essay "The Apotheosis of Somerset Maugham" (1946), argues that Maugham neither writes well nor recognizes the quality of better novelists. In particular, Wilson takes issue with Maugham's treatment of modernist writers: "Though Mr. Maugham's claims for himself are always carefully and correctly modest, he usually manages to sound invidious when he is speaking of his top-drawer contemporaries. … [We] find him patronizing, in what seems to me an insufferable way (and with his customary buzz of clichés), such writers as Henry James, James Joyce, and W. B. Yeats" (728). Citing Maugham's criticism of Proust in which he ... Read More

  • Searching for the Famine Remnants in Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Initially published in 1854–1855 as a serial in Charles Dickens' weekly journal Household Words, Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South only tangentially touches on Ireland's Great Famine. The fact is not all that surprising, for the famine was underrepresented, if not completely disregarded, by a variety of English writers at the time. While famine is by no means the primary topical focus of Gaskell's novel, examining the role of Irish workers and the peripheral existence of the famine in the novel allows us to interrogate the ostensible silence in the English literature of the time.As a matter here of historical contextualization, the Great Famine was a national disaster that affected the majority of Ireland's ...

  • Looking Backwards: The Powerful Presence of Precursors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Note: Our "Looking Backwards" selection continues to honor a promise made in the 80th anniversary issue of The CEA Critic to reprint past matters from the journal—articles, essays, notices, photos—that speak to the themes or topics pursued in the issue at hand. Typically, determining the past selection involves starting with a present one and then searching through the journal's archives for something that offers an interesting comparison or sets up a conversation.The paired essays for this issue of The CEA Critic capture in multiple ways the serendipitous nature of our profession. Both are focused on Jane Smiley's 1991 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Thousand Acres, a tale modeled on William Shakespeare's tragedy ... Read More

  • A Thousand Acres of King Lear: Reading Shakespeare Through Smiley

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It commonly happens when I am away at a conference—from venues as varied as the writers' gathering at the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts in Fort Lauderdale (March 1991) to the Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association in Jackson Hole (June 2005). When I mention that I studied at the University of Kentucky, someone invariably remarks, "Oh, then you must know John Shawcross." I am happy to say that I do. Indeed, I owe him much, as do many who have benefited from his tutelage. John, suffice to say, has catalyzed the profession in a unique way.John is widely known for his careful scholarship, eclectic erudition, and over-whelming generosity. What is perhaps less known is the degree to ... Read More

  • "Vigour to sustain": The Experience of Imprisonment and Stoic Principles
           in Lord Byron's The Lament of Tasso

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Lord Byron's letters, miscellaneous writing, and a reading list of 1805 reveal that, long before composing The Lament of Tasso in April 1817 and publishing it in July of the same year, he was well aware of Torquato Tasso and his epic poem Gerusalemme Liberata.1 In a letter to James Webster dated 10 October 1811, Byron mentioned numerous times "the Bower of Armida" in the epic work and Tasso as one of five great Italian poets, along with Dante, Petrarch, Ariosto, and Alfieri.2 While he resided in Venice in 1817, Byron's interest drove him to visit the very spot where Tasso was imprisoned from 1579 to 1586. In a letter to Thomas Moore of 11 April, ten days before penning The Lament of Tasso, Byron planned, "I shall ... Read More

  • CEA 2022: Birmingham: 52nd Annual Conference March 31–April 2, 2022
           Birmingham Sheraton Hotel

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The College English Association invites you to join us at our 52nd national conference in Birmingham, Alabama, where the freedom ensured by civil rights has been contested by the government in both the past and present. Birmingham's notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his "Letter from Birmingham Jail" is matched by the city's renown for forging steel, founding Veteran's Day, and hosting the USA's second-oldest drag queen pageant. Whether it is past conflicts over racism or current struggles over race, the rights of women, or the LGBTQ community, Birmingham and Alabama are places where the right to ... Read More

  • Field Report: News From The College English Association Regional
           Affiliates

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During its formative decades, the strength of the CEA resided in its dozens of regional affiliates. Their activities, including multiple regional conferences, were reported in The News Letter of the College English Association. Once the CEA separated their annual conference from the Modern Language Association—and, then, after the journal changed its name and shifted its emphasis to longer, scholarly essays—the number of affiliates dwindled and reports of their activities faded from the pages of The CEA Critic. In recent years, though, there has been a wonderful revitalization of the regional affiliates, the whole very much in the true spirit of the CEA's original mission. Some of these affiliates have been active ... Read More
