First, if you ever see any of my poems disappear, that’s because I’ve submitted them for consideration to a venue that does not consider work published elsewhere. If they’re accepted I will provide links to their new venue, and if not, I can make them visible again.
Next, my latest review has recently gone live at Romantic Circles Reviews and Receptions. It’s of David Sigler’s very good monograph, Sexual Enjoyment in British Romanticism: Gender and Psychoanalysis 1753-1835. It’s great to see RCRR up and running again after a hiatus of a few years, especially since it’s following a model that I think scholarly publishing needs to take in the future: peer-reviewed, open-access, and freely accessible to the public.
