Revised Version of Literary Matters 6.3

A revised version of Literary Matters 6.3 is now available. This new file features an updated link to the final Call for Papers for the 2014 Annual Conference and a corrected version of the in memoriam piece on Seamus Heaney, ” ‘A Sunlit Absence.’ ” The corrections are as follows: the facts of publication for the editions of Antigone and Beowulf

included in the first version have been removed at the request of the author, who intended to reference the original texts; a sentence in the opening paragraph mistakenly read, “What marked the early poems was a furtive glee about writing, and the monuments under construction were as remarkable as the farm he grew up on was,” and has been amended to read, “What marked the early poems was a furtive glee about writing, and the monuments under construction were as remarkable as the farm he grew up on was unremarkable, plain, and unadorned.”

Thank you for your time and readership. Take good care and happy holidays!
Very best,
Samantha
Editor, Literary Matters
