In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • The Monroe Kirk Spears Award

is presented annually
to honor the distinguished and humane career of
the late Professor Monroe K. Spears,
sometime editor of the Sewanee Review and
Libbie Shearn Moody Professor Emeritus
at Rice University.

Because everything Professor Spears wrote is marked
by clarity, economy, and felicity of expression
and by elegant and discerning interpretation,
the award recognizes the essay published in each
volume of SEL Studies in English Literature 1500–1900
that most nearly achieves these qualities and
that has given the editors the greatest pleasure to read.

Volume 53 Award Recipient—Charles LaPorte
for his Autumn 2013 essay,
Aurora Leigh, A Life-Drama, and
Victorian Poetic Autobiography”

The endowment to support this award
has been generously provided by
the Hobby Family Foundation. [End Page iv]
