I'm forwarding this announcement from Susannah Monta of a new issue of
*Religion
& Literature*. Some self-interest here, given my editing of the Poetry and
Devotion Forum, but I really want to draw attention to some wonderful pieces
on early modern poetry by Gary Kuchar, Erica Longfellow, and Alison Shell.
The other forum contributors are terrific too, if you want to read outside
the early modern. (Note too other early modern contents, including the
review by Anne Prescott, who's never written anything not worth reading.)
