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

THE EDITOR'S FENCE 1 . The Tenth Conference on English Literature in Transition: The Poetry of Thomas Hardy: Once again we shall consider papers designed for publication in ELT prior to the December meeting of the ELT Conference in New York. These papers should be on some aspect of Hardy's poetry; accepted papers will be published in ELT, IX: 4 (I966), which will be mailed early in'December. Published papers will not be read in full at the meeting of the Conference; they may serve as a basis for discussion. This year we also plan to have a panel of Hardy scholars support the Discussion Leader in directing discussion. So far Harold Orel, whose edition of THOMAS HARDY'S PERSONAL WRITINGS has just appeared, has agreed to comment on Hardy and the epic tradition; J, 0. Bailey will comment on his findings in England this summer while doing research in connection with a book on Hardy's poetry; Richard Carpenter has agreed to comment on Hardy's poetry and the dramatic narrative tradition; and Bruce Teets has agreed to comment on Hardy's reflective poetry,. Since we expect lively interest in this Conference and since MLA must still limit attendance, anyone interested in attending should write to the Discussion Leader, Helmut E. Gerber, Department of English, Purdue University, V/. Lafayette, Indiana. Admission will probably have to be limited to the first 35 applicants. The time, day, and room will be announced in the MLA program and in ELT, IX: 4 (1966), which should be in the mail early in December. 2. Special Series Number Two (I966): In 1964 we published the first edition of H. G. V/ells'sHOOPDRÕ VER'S HOLIDAY. This was mailed as a bonus to all then current subscribers; additional copies and back order copies have been sold at one dollar each in the U. S. and one dollar and twenty-five cents abroad. This publication became Number One of our Special Series, which will include previously unpublished and, occasionally, uncollected materials and which will appear irregularly as such materials become available to us. Special Series Number Two (1966) is the first edition of Edmund Gosse's AMERICA, THE DIARY OF A VISIT, WINTER 1884-1885, edited with notes and an introduction by Robert L. Peters and David G* Halliburton. We have reproduced this work by means of photo-offset and included a plate showing two pages of the manuscript. This i tern is being mailed as a bonus to all current (I966) subscribers. A small number of additional copies will be sold separately at one dollar each in the U. S. and at one dollar and twenty-five cents abroad, 3. Photo-offset 1967: Plans for publishing ELT by means of photo-offset reproduction in a slightly reduced format, we remind our subscribers, are progressing. We normally expect to produce from 48 to 56 pages in each of four numbers for an annual volume of 192 to 224.pages. ind:vidual numbers will have wrap-around 65 pound cover stock and be saddle stitched. Subscriptions for domestic subscribers will be $2.50 per year; single copies will be .75* Subscriptionsfor foreign subscribers will be $3-00 per year; single copies will be $1.00. The annual subscription rate will be in effect for each current calendar year (Jan-Dec); after December of each year, the single-copy rate will be in effect. Since our print order will be limited, we suggest that our present subscribers renew for I967 as soon as possible and that new subscribers place their orders for 1967 early. We shall accept only a limited number of subscribers for 1967· Subscriptions are thus subject to prior sale. VI 4. Helpl Help! Help! We are planning to complete our full-scale bibliography of abstracts of writings about Joseph Conrad in the near future. In order to complete this project within a reasonable time, we urgently need help.
