Professor Mark Canuel To Be Awarded Keats-Shelley Prize

At the MLA in January, Professor Mark Canuel will be awarded the Keats-Shelley prize for the year's best essay on Romanticism. The essay, "Race, Writing, and Don Juan” (Studies in Romanticism 54 Fall 2015: 303-328), will be celebrated at the Keats-Shelley Association banquet on January 7 at 7 pm at the Courtyard Downtown. The Keats-Shelley Prize was inaugurated in 1998 by the Keats-Shelley Memorial Association. Its purpose is to encourage people of all ages to respond personally to the emotions aroused in them by the work of the Romantics, through rising to the challenge of writing their own poem or essay.
