CFP: Robert Browning’s legacy(ies) and transition(s), 6-7 December 2012

Proposals for papers are invited for an international conference to be held at Lyon 2 University (France) on 6 and 7 December 2012, as part of the bicentennial of the birth of Robert Browning.

Too often relegated to the Victorian shelves of neglected literature, too often identified exclusively as the inventor of the dramatic monologue — also known as the Victorian monologue —, too often considered to be a difficult, if not obscure, poet, the victim of the readers of his century, who discovered him late, Robert Browning was blamed by the Victorians precisely for what the Modernists treasured in his poetry. By turns Romantic, post-Romantic, Victorian, and post-Victorian, Robert Browning’s works spanned almost the entire Victorian era, looking backwards to rediscover the Romantic period, and forward to herald the arrival of the Modern period, through innumerable complex poems, which he himself questioned and reworked. The main question about such a legacy is the reason why his contemporaries rejected it whereas the poets and readers to come would be proud of it. What are the traces he left in Victorian poetry that would survive their author unexpectedly and in spite of him? How and why is it possible to say that Browning’s poetry is one of legacy(ies) and transition(s)?

Proposals (300 words max.) for 30-minute papers in English or French should be sent by April 30th 2012 at the latest, accompanied by a short cv, to the following e-mail address: Jean-Charles.Perquin@univ-lyon2.fr.
