English Studies Journal Special Issue - The Pale King

Special Issue: Unfinished: Critical Approaches to David Foster Wallace's The Pale King English Studies Volume 95, Issue 1, 2014.

If you have access through a library or university to English Studies then this looks to be a fantastic issue to track down (unfortunately my NLA membership with access to thousands upon thousands of journals doesn't seem to include this one).

It's co-edited by Luc Herman and Toon Staes (he organised the Antwerp Wallace conference) and features - among other things - a number of contributions by speakers at the Antwerp conference (including the keynote speakers, Burn and Boswell). It will be circulated in print around April.


Introduction: Can The Pale King (Please) be a Novel? Luc Herman & Toon Staes

Pay Attention! David Foster Wallace and his Real Enemies.  Tore Rye Andersen

Author Here: The Legal Fiction of David Foster Wallace's The Pale King.  Marshall Boswell

Forms, Punch Cards and LETTERS: Self-Reference, Recursion and (Un)self-Consciousness in The Pale King's Representation of Bureaucracy.  Simon de Bourcier

Subjective Politics in The Pale King.  Emily J. Hogg

Work in Process: A Genesis for The Pale King.  Toon Staes

Toward a General Theory of Vision in Wallace's Fiction.  Stephen J. Burn


I can't wait to read these!

Why bother with libraries and April when you can buy 30 day online access to this special addition of English studies from Taylor and Francis for $193.00?

What will the deal be with the April hard copy?

Oh my, I guess I'm very naive....
