W THE EDITOR'S FENCE NEW EDITORIAL ADDRESS Effective July 1, I968, all correspondence, contributions, and subscription orders must be addressed as follows: Helmut E. Gerber, Editor English Literature in Transition Department of English Northern Illinois University DeKaIb, Illinois 6OII5 Subscription rates remain the same and the journal remains independent and fundamentally self-supporting. The Northern Illinois University Department of English provides secretarial and graduate assistant aid. Checks should be made payable to English Literature in Transition or ELT. ill 1. Twelfth ELT Seminar. KLA. New York, I968: The Aesthetic of the Problem Play: The proposed Seminar will concentrât» on the Froblem Flay as literary phenomenon of the English and Irish literary scene, I88O-I92O, rather than on selected individual dramatists . Amone possible subjects for consideration: the influence of older dramatists (Eritish and Continental) on the development of the form, the impetus supplied by critics and commentators of the period, the aesthetics of specific plays, etc. We shall publish in ELT acceptable papers on the subject prior to the meeting of the Seminar. These papers will not be read or summarized in detail at the meeting. The membership will be expected to be familiar with the papers; the authors will be present to participate in discussion. Contributions intended for the Seminar number of ELT must be in our hands by August 31, I968, or soon thereafter . The Seminar will be open to all interested applicants to the limit set by MLA. Anyone wishing to attend must write to the Discussion Leader, W. Eugene Davis, Department of English, Purdue University, W. Lafayette, Indiana 4?90?. 2. Special Meeting; Secondary Annotated Bibliography Series, KLA, New York, I968: We propose to bring together scholars, editors, contributors, and representatives of presses concerned with the compiling,annotating, editing, and publishing of reference works such as full-scale secondary bibliographies. Discussion will focus on such basic matters as principles of selection, the handling of foreign language items, the inclusion or exclusion of reviews of secondary materials, the keying of later supplements, problems of format from the point of view of the editor-compiler, the scholaruser , and the publisher-printer. Details about the proposed meeting will be announced in the next number of ELT. 3. Needed: Foreign-Language Readers: Because ELT bibliographies are intended to be as thorough and as inclusive as they can reasonably be made, we try to abstract items in all languages. Besides English, we now cover French, German, Japanese, and Polish fairly well. However, we can use the occasional help of Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Spanish, Italian, and Russian readers. Eecause Polish scholars have a quite lively publishing record, we could also use additional help with materials in this language. Ideally, we would like to have a pool of foreign-language readers we could call on as needed to abstract a relatively small number of items for inclusion in our full-scale major-author bibliographies such as those on Conrad, Hardy, and Lawrence, and, eventually, others on H. G. Wells, Walter Pater, Arthur Symons, R. L. Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, and many more. In most instances, foreign-language readers must be near major libraries in the home country of the language or near some of the great American research centers such as the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Newberry Library. We shall appreciate hearing from anyone willing to be included in our proposed foreign-language pool on a permanent basis. ...
