Call for Papers: Gulliver’s Travels

A message from Ignatius Critical Editions series editor Joseph Pearce.

We are looking for critical essays for the forthcoming Ignatius Critical Edition of Gulliver’s Travels. The first three titles in this new series of critical editions were published this Spring (King Lear, Frankenstein, and Wuthering Heights). The second and third batches are already being edited (Hamlet, Pride and Prejudice, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Merchant of Venice, Huckleberry Finn, The Scarlet Letter, and The Romantic Poets) and we are now ready to accept essays for the edition of Gulliver’s Travels.

Essays should be written in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition) from a tradition-oriented critical perspective and should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words in length. Contributors will be paid 10 cents per word for accepted essays if the work is previously unpublished and a payment of $100 will be made for previously published essays. Deadline for receipt of all essays is January 1st, 2009.

Please reply by e-mail if you are interested in submitting an essay, giving details of your proposed title or thesis.
