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

THE EDITOR'S FENCE 1. San Francisco Division Programi The Executive Committee of the MLA Division on Late 19th- and Early 20th-century English Literature has set the following two program topics for the San Francisco meetings in December, 1979« I. The Other Moderns ι Reconsiderations. The intention is to have speakers reconsider the status of such perhaps underrated authors as, for example, Arnold Bennett, George Moore, H. G. Wells, some dramatists other than Shaw and Wilde, Robert Bridges, George Gissing, Rudyard Kipling, and others. II. Revaluations. The intention is to have speakers revaluate some authors whose reputations have risen among academic critics in recent years (Walter Pater, Oscar Wilde, Thomas Hardy, the Bloomsbury Group, and perhaps others), but who warrant consideration from new perspectives . A maximum of four speakers will be scheduled for each program; up to fifteen minutes will be allowed for each formal presentation so that there will be a little time for questions from the floor. Suggestions, abstracts of papers, or drafts of papers should be submitted by about April 1 for consideration: Professor H. E. Gerber, Chairman MLA Division on Late 19th/Early 20th-cent Eng Lit Department of English Arizona State University Tempe, AZ 85281 Participants in the programs will be notified, insofar as possible, by early May. 2. ELT Seminars ι The End of Something! I remind the faithful who for twenty-one years supported the annual ELT Seminars at the MLA meetings that I organized and chaired the last such Seminar in 1977. Apart from the fact that my own commitments have become too burdensome, there are now annually many independent Seminars on ELT authors and ELT-related topics and, of course, since 1975-76, MLA has given the period formal recognition by establishing a Division which can address a much larger audience than the Seminar format. The ELT Seminars, I am convinced, have served their purpose. Further, no longer committed to publishing Seminar papers in the fourth number of each volume of ELT, I now have the much-needed space to reduce an embarrassing backlog of accepted contributions. Nevertheless, I shall miss the happy occasions of meeting many long-time readers of the journal during those lively, intimate sessions where we could actually talk to each other face to face. I hope we can still occasionally communicate in this way at some of the independent Seminars, at Division meetings, and in hotel lobbies. ...
