After a busy sabbatical, Professor James Plath has four new publications either out or on their way.
His article “Shaping Graces: John Updike, Middleness, and the American Experience” appears in Critical Insights: John Updike, edited by Bernard F. Rodgers, Jr. (Salem Press, 2011), while his “Barking at Death: Hemingway, Africa, and the Stages of Dying” has come out in Hemingway and Africa, edited by Miriam Mandel (Camden House, 2011). Still another article, “Photos and Portraits,” will be published later this year in Hemingway in Context (Cambridge University Press, 2012). Meanwhile, his poem “Plattdeutsch” has appeared in City of the Big Shoulders: An Anthology of Chicago Poetry, edited by Ryan G. Van Cleave (University of Iowa Press, 2012).
Congratulations, Jim, on an exceptionally productive year!
