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

14? BIBLIOGRAPHY, NEWS, AND NOTES [Continued from the preceding number] Compiled and Edited by H. E. Gerber, Barbara Blakey, Bernard Quint and Mary Ellen Quint, with abstracts by others, as noted This listing includes unabstracted references to all pertinent articles we have published in Volume XV, Nos 1-4 (1972), as well as abstracts of items published elsewhere on the authors we have been listing regularly. We list only authors or. whom we have published a selected bibliography, a bibliography in depth, or on whom a project is in progress either for publication in the Annotated Secondary Bibliography Series being published by Northern Illinois University Press or in ELT. In general, vie shall not include abstracts of reviews of secondary works unless they contain significant comments on primary works. In general, we shall net abstract items already abstracted in Dissertation Abstracts, although we shall list such items. Persons who have assumed responsibility for abstracts on particular authors are appropriately credited in a by-line. Contributors of scattered items are credited in brackets at the end of the relevant entry. Bibliographies wanted: Since relatively little current research appears on the following authors, we list their names here and await offers from our readers to prepare selected, in most cases, annotated bibliographies of items about them, or to prepare, in a few cases, bibliographies in depth. From time to time, as our backlog diminishes, we shall add other names. We are, of course, always ready to discuss projects on authors not now listed but who fall within the scope of ELT.

Rider Haggard Maurice Hewlett Lionel Johnson Rose Macaulay William McFee Compton Mackenzie W. E. Maxwell Leonard Merrick C. E. Montague Arthur Morrison Oliver Onions Edwin Pugh JOHN GALSWORTHY We published an annotated bibliography of writings about Galsworthy in EFT, I: 3 (1958), 7-29; Earl E. Stevens' supplement in ibid, VII: 2 (1964), 93-IIO; and additional items in various numbers since then. We suspended current listings at the end of I969 because Earl E. Stevens (Rhode Island College) and H. Ray Stevens (Western Maryland College) have contracted to prepare the secondary annotated bibliography on Galsworthy for the series of volumes published by N. I. U. Press. 148 GEORGE GISSING We published an annotated bibliography of writings about Gissing in EFT, I: 1 (1957), 24-28; supplemented in III: 2 (i960), 3-33; VII: 1 (1964), 14-26; VII: 2 (1964), 73-82; and additional items in various numbers since then; and Pierre Coustillas' primary bibliography of Gissing's short stories in VII: 2 (1964), 59-?2. We gratefully acknowledge the contributions, in recent years, of Philip Armato, James Haydock, and James A. Rogers, who have been most helpful in keeping our listings up to date. We suspended our listings on Gissing at the end of 1970 because Joseph Wolff has contracted to prepare the annotated bibliography of writings about Gissing for the series of volumes being published by N. I. U. Press. EDMUND GÖSSE By James Dudley Woolf Barringer, George Martyn. "Joseph Conrad and Nostromo: Two New Letters," Thoth, X (Spring I969), 20-24. [Contains a page and a half introduction for a short letter (11 June I9I8) to Mrs. Dummett accompanying a gift copy of Nostromo and a long letter to G about the novel.] The letter to G is the only occasion in Conrad's known correspondence in which he "discussed in detail the content of Nostromo." G's letter to Conrad which drew the novelist's reply has not been located, but one may surmise that "some criticism of Nostromo was expressed. . . in such a way that Conrad was moved to argument rather than to discouraged silence." Conrad asserts that he is delighted that his Nostromo drew a letter from the critic to its author; G is one of a "limited audience" whom he is desirous of pleasing and convincing ; Nostromo's character is that of an "exaggerated amour propre"; the letter to G is long because he wished to "make a case for my point of view" after having the...
