Call for Papers: American Literature Association

The Robert Frost Society invites proposals for its panel of three papers, “Sounding Frost,” at the 26th Annual Conference of the American Literature Association in Boston, MA, May 21-23, 2015.

Robert Frost’s ideas about the “sound of sense” found in letters and enacted in poems can seem curiously at odds with his ideas about the necessity of a poem’s having meaning, unless readers sound the depths of Frost’s meanings as these appear through or by virtue of tone, meter (e.g., as it is experienced in spoken renditions of poems and in formal scansion), or grammatical constructions, broadly or narrowly defined. Papers that consider these or other themes related to Frost’s poetry, prose, letters, lectures, or plays are welcome.

Please send a 300-word abstract to Lisa Seale at lseale@rose.edu by December 31, 2014, along with your contact information, academic or other affiliation, and any audio-visual or other presentation needs.
