I’ve started a Scalar eBook — which is, essentially, a website that can be designed so that your pages follow multiple paths. I’m going to use it to post preliminary ideas developed out of the upcoming NEH Summer Seminar that I will be attending in June and early July of this year, Reassessing British Romanticism, as well as conference papers that I’ve presented over the years. My eBook is titled Text, Identity, Subjectivity. I’m adding to it daily.
I’ve had a long association with a website called The Tower of Babel. It’s published essays and such by me since the 1990s. But, regrettably, the site completely crashed recently and all content on it was lost, including my posts about my book Blake and Kierkegaard: Creation and Anxiety hosted on the subdomain jamesrovira.towerofbabel.com. I’m unsure if I’d backed up any of these anywhere, so it’s very likely everything on that site was lost. Some content, such as film essays, was posted both here and at that site, but some of it is just gone forever.
So I’m going to use this blog for all book updates for my previous book, Blake and Kierkegaard: Creation and Anxiety (Continuum 2010, hardcover; 2011, paperback). Updates about my current anthology, Interpretation: Theory: History will continue to be posted at interpretationtheoryhistory.wordpress.com.
The latest about Blake and Kierkegaard: it’s been reviewed yet again, this time by Robert Rix for Comparative Literature Studies vol. 49, issue 2, 2012. It has also been reviewed by Blake: An Illustrated Quarterly, Choice,and Zoamorphosis. I’m very grateful for the work of these reviewers and would like to thank them for the time they’ve taken to review my work.
