In conjunction with the annual meeting of the Robert Penn Warren Circle, Dr. Diana Hope Polley, Professor of English at Southern New Hampshire University, will present a lecture titled Text and Context: Close Reading and Periodization in Echoes of Emerson on April 26 at WKU.
The lecture will be drawn from her book, Echoes of Emerson: Rethinking Realism in Twain, James, Wharton, and Cather, which was selected as the 2018 winner of the Robert Penn Warren-Cleanth Brooks Award for outstanding literary scholarship and criticism.
The Warren-Brooks Award, presented each year by the Robert Penn Warren Center at WKU, was established by the Warren family to honor an outstanding work of literary scholarship that embodies the spirit, scope, and integrity of the work produced by Warren and his frequent collaborator, Brooks.
Dr. Polley’s lecture will take place at 3:30 p.m. in Cherry Hall 125 and is open to the public.
