The Critical Work of Law and Literature

University of Toronto Quarterly - Volume 82, Number 4, Fall 2013


Guest Editors: Simon Stern, Cheryl Suzack, Greig Henderson


This special issue showcases the methodological and historical range of
current scholarship at the intersection of law and literature. Spanning the
renaissance to the present, moving from conventionally literary forms
(drama, fiction, and poetry) to specifically forensic media such as
courtroom videos, and taking up subjects such as collaborative writing, land
disputes, and the modern law of sovereignty and immigration, these essays
show how both classic and lesser-known texts speak to, and engage with,
legal doctrines, dogmas, and dilemmas. The texts under consideration include
Hamlet, Sir Robert Chambers’s Vinerian lectures, Billy Budd, De Profundis,
Tales of the Dakota, and Babel.

University of Toronto Quarterly

Acclaimed as one of the finest journals focused on the humanities,
University of Toronto Quarterly is filled with serious, probing, and
vigorously researched articles spanning a wide range of subjects in the
humanities. Often the best insights in one field of knowledge come through
cross-fertilization, where authors can apply another discipline’s ideas,
concepts, and paradigms to their own disciplines. UTQ is not a journal where
one philosopher speaks to another, but a place where a philosopher can speak
to specialists and general readers in many other fields. This
interdisciplinary approach provides a depth and quality to the journal that
attracts both general readers and specialists from across the humanities.
