“Integrity is Wholeness”: The Moral, Aesthetic, and Social Implications of Robinson Jeffers’s Worldview
The 2013 RJA Conference welcomes papers that discuss the effect Jeffers’s worldview had on his life and art, which were, in the spirit of integrity, inextricably tied. Further, papers might discuss the implications of Jeffers’s worldview for the world at large and the relevance it holds in 2013. It is difficult to discuss Jeffers without making reference to his outlook, so this conference offers room for a variety of topics, including comparisons with other writers. In fact, a panel that treats Jeffers in conjunction with the South Carolina poet James Dickey would be a welcome feature. A unique centerpiece for this event will be a panel titled “The State of Jeffers Scholarship,” in which RJA invites those who have made substantial contributions to the growing cannon of Jeffers criticism, as either author or editor, to take part.
Presentations on off-theme topics will also be considered.
